Wolverines broil

Boilers

(Continued from Page 1)
guard Mack Gadis, a 93-percent foul
shooter, missed a free throw that would
have pulled his team within one, 41-40.
Two minutes later, at the 11:56 mark,
Thompson put in a 10-foot jumper that
set the Wolverines off on a 15-0 run.
Before the storm blew over Michigan
had a 58-41 lead.
The Wolverines used their three-
guard offense, in which Antoine Joubert
takes the role of small forward, to
break the game open. Joubert, Thom-
pson and Gary Grant scored 13 of the 15
points while shutting down Purdue with
help from center Roy Tarpley, who led
all scorers with 23 points.
"We decided to go small for a com-
bination of reasons," said Frieder,
whose club is now 2-2 in the Big Ten (10-
3 overall). "We felt we could match up
defensively. Garde has been playing
well and we had some foul trouble with
Butch Wade."

'M' pummels Purdue;
A first for Freider

"YOU GOT to hand it to Michigan,"
he said. "They went on a tough road
trip and won one of them so that puts
them right back into the race."

"WITH GARY, Antoine and myself in
there," said Thompson, "We get the
ball on the break and we're gone. We
got that going in the second half and we
just gradually pulled away until, all of a
sudden, we're up by 17."
Purdue made a strong attempt to get
back in the game. Aided by some poor
foul shooting by Michigan, the Boilers
put together a 14-4 run and trailed by
only seven.
"They did a great job coming back,"
Frieder said. "They got aggressive
with the pressure. They were all over us
on the boards."

Associated rress
Villanova center Ed Pinckney goes after a loose ball as Georgetown's Perry
McDonald, left, looks on. His teammate, Horace Broadnax, tries to grab the
ball. See story below.

BUT TARPLEY and Grant ran a suc-
cessful break with 3:32 remaining
which ended with the big man laying
the ball in the basket and getting fouled
by Purdue's Steve Reid. The Boiler-
makers never recovered.
"They seemed to get everything
going their way after that," said Gad-
is, who led Purdue with 14 points.
Grant had another outstanding all-
around game. The 6-3 freshman
finished with 16 points, six assists, six
rebounds, and three steals. Perhaps
even more important, the Canton, Ohio
native held Reid below his 14.4 point
scoring average. The 5-9 Reid, who had
26 points Thursday night in a losing ef-
fort against Michigan State, finished
with 12 and hit on only one of six attem-
pts from the floor in the second half.
"I THINK Gary Grant did a great,
great job on Steve Reid," Frieder said.
"Making him dribble with his left
hand was the most important thing,"
Grant explained. "He had to turn his
whole body to square up and take the
shot off the screen. By that time, I'm off
the screen and I can get a hand on it."
Tarpley had a field day against Pur-
due's 6-9 Robert Littlejohn, who does not
appear to have all the skills necessary
to be an effective Big Ten center. Grant
said that the guards were working to
get the ball inside to the pivot man.
"WE TRIED to get it in to Tarpley
because they didn't have the height to
match up with him," said Michigan's
newest hero.
The Wolverines had their best defen-
sive effort of the season, holding Pur-
due to 44-percent shooting - nine poin-
ts below its season average - and for-
cing the Boilers into 19 turnovers. Along
with Grant, Rob Henderson and Wade
were defensive standouts, although
neither produced much on the other
end.
Purdue, Big Ten co-champions in
1934, is now 1-3 in the league and its long
history of winning at Mackey Arena
seems to be in jeopardy. Boilermaker
coach Gene Keady didn't have many
positive things to say about his club but
he did put in a good word for the victors.

... hits for 16

If the Wolverines are going to stay in
the race, they're going to have to con-
tinue to come up with big efforts on the
road. This was Michigan's first victory
at Purdue since 1977, but Grant still was
not totally satisfied.

BIG TEN ROUNDUP:

"We should have had both of (the
games on this road trip)," he said.
"Illinois slipped away from us and
today we were determined to win."
It's. that kind of determination that
brings teams to the top of the Big Ten.

Illinois pounds

CHAMPAIGN (AP)-Anthony Welch
scored 23 points to power 15th ranked
Illinois to a 75-63 victory over 17th-
ranked Michigan State in Big Ten Con-
ference basketball yesterday.
Welch scored 15 of his points in the
second half after Illinois recovered
from a mediocre opening half.
DOUG ALTENBERGER added 17
points for the Illini and Bruce Douglas
hit 14.
The loss ended Michigan State's four-
game winning streak and reduced the
Spartan record to 3-1 in the league, 12-2
overall. Illinois now is 2-2 in the league,
13-4 overall.
Illinois led at halftime 30-28, after
trailing most of the half. Michigan State
held leads up to eight points several
times in the opening 20 minutes, but
Altenberger led an Illinois rally,
scoring five points in the last four
minutes of the half.
MICHIGAN STATE hit 56 percent of
its first half field goal attempts, while
holding Illinois to 38 percent from the
floor.
The Illini turned the game around at
the beginning of the second half,
scoring nine consecutive points and
holding Michigan State scoreless for
nearly four minutes with a swarming,
full-court press.
Illinois maintained leads. up to 14
points throughout the rest of the game,
to notch its second consecutive home
victory.
Michigan State was led by senior
guard Sam Vincent, with 20 points.
Scott Skiles added 18 and Larry Polec
hit 14 points.
Indiana 90, Wisconsin 68
BLOOMINGTON (UPI)-The 11th-
ranked Indiana Hoosiers are about as
deep a team as there is in college
basketball, and it was the contributions
of reserves Winston Morgan and Steve
Eyl that led to their 90-68 victory
yesterday over Big Ten foe Wisconsin.
Morgan, who has started eight games
in Indiana's revolving door lineup,
scored 14 points and handed out four
assists while Eyl, a freshman forward,
scored 11 points and pulled down six
rebounds in reserve roles.

"I FELT Morgan and Eyl played very
well coming off the bench," Indiana
coach Bobby Knight said. "Morgan did
a good job taking the ball to the bucket.
I think Eyl, coming in for (center Uwe)
Blab, greatly improved our play at that
position."
"They've got great depth," Wiscon-
sin coach Steve Yoder said. "It seems

Spa rtans
like when somebody gets tired,I
somebody else comes in and does the
job."
Starting guard Steve Alford led In-
diana with 20 points, including 12 in a
three-minute stretch of the first half
that helped the Hoosiers take a 44-34
halftime lead.
INDIANA THEN doubled that advan-

!'

75-63

tage during the first eight minutes of
the second half and Knight started sen-
ding in the second string of substitutes in
his 15-man squad.
"For us, the best part of play was the
first seven minutes of the second half,"
Knight said.
Yoder bemoaned the fact that his
team made only six of 14 free throw at-
tempts in the first half and finished only
14 of 25 from the line.
"You can't shoot 6-of-14 from the line
and be in many games," Yoder said.
"We were fortunate to be down by 10 at
halftime."
Minnesota 65, Iowa 57
MINNEAPOLIS (AP)-Tommy
Davis scored 18 points, including a
crucial three-point play late in the
game, as surprising Minnesota knocked
off No. 19 Iowa 65-57 yesterday in Big
Ten basketball.
The upset left both Minnesota and
Iowa 2-1 in the conference.
NINE POINTS by Davis and icy Iowa
shooting enabled the Gophers to open a
31-22 half-time lead. The Hawkeyes
shot only 36 pecent in the first half,
compared to Minnesota's 52 percent
accuracy.
Iowa cut Minnesota's 11-point lead
early in the second half down to 39-36
when Andre Banks hit a jump shot.
That was the closest the Hawkeyes
came.
Iowa pulled within 47-43 when Greg
Stokes scored two free throws with 3:50
to go. But in the next 44 seconds, Min-
nesota scored seven straight points on a
basket from backup center Paul Van
Den Einde, Davis' three-point play and
two free throws from Marc Wilson to go
ahead 54-43.
ON DAVIS' three-point play, back-
court mate Wilson drove down court on
a breakaway layup but missed, banging
the shot off the front of the rim. The
alert Davis grabbed the rebound, was
fouled and converted the free throw.
Stokes led Iowa with 21 points, while
Michael Payne grabbed 16 Hawkeye
rebounds. John Shasky, Minnesota's 7-
foot center, added 14 points.
Minnesota boosted its overall record
to 9-4, while the defeat left Iowa at 13-3.

Purdue not making the grade...
@* eKeady starts tutorin
WEST LAFAYETTE
IT'S A GOOD thing classes aren't in session here, because Purdue's
basketball players wouldn't have much time for homework.
Gene Keady, headmaster of the Boilermaker basketball academy,
decided to keep his pupils after school yesterday, calling them in for an extra {
practice at 9:30 last night.
"Maybe he thinks it'll get us up, or something like that. Maybe it'll work,"
said Purdue guard Mack Gadis, who explained that last night's was the first
ever Saturday night post-game practice, at least in his three years with the
Boilers.
"I guess (Keady's) just dissatisfied with our play," said forward Mark:
Atkinson. "He's trying to correct it any way he can. I don't know if tonight's
going to do it."
The uncertainty of both Gadis and Atkinson and the subdued tone in which
both spoke are signs of what Keady is upset about.
Michigan's 81-65 win yesterday gave Purdue its first pair of consecutive
home losses in three years. It's only the fifth time the Boilermakers have
dropped two straight in Mackey Arena since the place was built in 1967.
And Keady thinks he knows why his team has flunked the home game
tests.
Concentration requirements
"The main thing you can teach young men to be able to win at this level is
to concentrate," Keady said, "and we're not concentrating.
"I don't know what we're worried about, but there are things evidently on
our minds besides basketball."
The concentration problem showed in Purdue's second half free-throw
shooting, which totalled just 50 percent. Gadis, a 93-percent free-throw
shooter going into yesterday's game, typified the Boilers' struggles at the
line, missing his only two free throws of the game.
The problem also showed yesterday in Purdue's 19 turnovers. That num-
ber is seven more than Michigan's total and about eight-and-a-half more
than the Boilermakers have averaged this year.
Keady gave an especially low grade to his team's shot selection, which
netted, or rather didn't net, Purdue a 43-percent mark. That's about a C- for
most teams, but the Boilermakers' 53-percent season average raises the
curve, as well as Keady's ire.
"I'm always disappointed in shot selection when you shoot the ball too
quick," he said. "You shoot the ball with one pass in this league, and you're
gonna get your ass beat."
Yesterday's result also had something to do with the treatment Purdue's
collective posteriors took in its overtime loss Thursday. After squandering a
six-point lead in the last minute of regulation, the Boilers got outscored by
nine in OT.
"It was a game we felt we had won," said Gadis. "I think it had a great ef-
fect on us coming into this game.
"We wanted the win extra bad but it seemed like nothing went our way."
So Keady's out to find a new way. He said he's deliberately maintained his
starting lineup after the first loss, but now that may change.
"Evidently," Keady observed, "nowadays in our high, loose-knitted
societv nennle cnn't tnke sernritv and cmnIn'encv and get motivated "

Vilan ova in overtime

PHILADELPHIA (AP)-A pair of
free throws by David Wingate with 12
seconds remaining in overtime
triggered No. 1-ranked Georgetown to a
52-50 victory over 16th-ranked
Villanova yesterday.
The triumph was Georgetown's 15th
straight this season, while Villanova's
record dropped to 9-3.
REGULATION ended 43-43 when
Villanova's Ed Pinckney made two free
throws with 11 seconds remaining.
Georgetown took a 45-43 lead at 4:28
of the overtime, but Dwayne McClain,
who led Villanova with 18 points, tied
it at 3:01.
Reggie Williams sent Georgetown
