VAN DE WEGH NOTCHES FIRST BIG TEN WIN

Bradetich leads 'M'

past Purdue

By MARK KOVINSKY
While most basketball fans were
planted in front of their television sets
Sunday afternoon watching the Detroit
Pistons make the Los Angeles Lakers
look like the Cleveland Cavaliers, a few
hundred dedicated fans hiked over to
Crisler Arena and got an unexpected
surprise.
Coach Bud Van De Wege finally got a
taste of success in the Big Ten as his
women cagers pulled away from Pur-
due in the final minutes to take a 69-56
win. But it was by no means easy.
COMING OFF a tough loss to Illinois
on Friday night in which the team blew
a big lead down the stretch, the

Wolverines (now 1-3 in the conference
and 7-7 overall) looked as if they were
about to give a repeat performance.
Up by eight points at the half, thanks
to some hot shooting from junior Wendy
Bradetich, the cagers carried the lead
throughout the second half. In fact, they
jumped to a 60-50 lead with just 3:56 to
play after Lorea Feldman hit a ten-foot
jumper. Feldman, the team's leading
scorer, was held to 12 points on the day
(all in the second half) as Purdue ap-
plied some aggressive woman-to-
woman defense in the first half.
But Purdue bounced back, scoring the
next six points to cut Michigan's lead to
four. 60-56. with 1:10 remaining.
AT THAT POINT, VanDeWege may

have been worrying about another let-
down, but it was not to be. Junior
Orethia Lilly, coming off the bench for
the first time all year, hit a pair of one-
and-ones in the clutch and put the game
away.
Lilly, who was replaced in the star-
ting lineup by freshman Sarah Basford,
played an excellent floor game as she
dished out five assists while adding 13
points to the winning effort.
"Lilly has not been productive," ex-
plained Van De Wege of his decision to
bench her. "She was letting her
shooting slump affect the rest of her
game."
VANDEWEGE ALSO benched his
other starting guard, senior Connie
Doutt, for another freshman, Kelly
Benintendi. Unlike Lilly, however,
Doutt did not see action.

"If we have to continue to start them,
we will," said VanDeWEge. "But right
now, I'm making decisions by what I
see in practice."
Purdue now 0-4 in the Big Ten and 6-8
overall, was led by sophomore forward
Kay Sharp, who finished with 16 points.
Michigan's Bradetich led all scorers
with 24 points, 16 in the first half.
The Boilermakers gave away the
game at the free throw line where they
hit a miserable 43 percent (10 of 23)
while the Wolverines converted 23 of 27.
"There wasn't any game I wanted
more than this," said VanDeWege, who
was much more vocal along the
sidelines than usual. "We proved we
could get a lead and hold on. It will help
build our confidence."
The cagers next game is Friday night
at Minnesota.

Welch wins
weekly honor
CHICAGO (AP) - Anthony Welch,
who led Illinois to successive victories
over Michigan and Michigan State, has
been named Big Ten Player of the Week
by The Associated Press.

Rapids, Mich., who sat out last season
with a broken foot, scored 16 points in a
64-58 overtime victory over Michigan
and came back with 23 points in a 75-63
triumph over Michigan State. He had a
total of 14 rebounds in the two games,
was 14 of 23 from the field and 11 of 11
from the free throw line.

IN" h
True Glue f
By Douglas B. Levy (
" OUG," pleaded the other sports editors in unison, "only write a column
if you have something to say. Write about the Super Bowl or the
NBA..
"But I want to tell everybody about my Saturday, it was amazing," I
reiterated.
"No one cares about your Saturday, Doug..."
Well, after about 10 minutes of reflection, I decided that my Saturday was
simply too important to go unnoticed. Here we are at the start of yet another
semester. The new year is still young. And who knows, maybe some lives
can be altered.
You see, as a last semester senior, I have much wisdom to import. Ah, I can
hear the editors groaning.
. Let's get started with a New Year's resolution. If you're an un-
dergraduate, pay attention. Everyone must try to add a little diversity to his
or her life in 1985.
Here at Michigan, a superior student body is supposed to be set apart from
its Michigan State counterparts by an abundance of creativity. So what did
the average undergraduate Wolverine to last Saturday?
Seeing as it was the first Saturday of the new semester, and studying was
out of the question, the average student slept late and did absolutely nothing
for the remainder of the afternoon and evening. The average schlep (nice
word denoting loser) was in anxious anticipation of a night either at a bar or
a party. Now admit it, all the bars and parties were overcrowded and you
really didn't have much fun. You wasted a day. Way to go.
So what did I do, Mr. Big Shot.
I too, slept late and, in fact, spent the early part of the afternoon glued to
a boob tube. The only difference is that I was with seven friends at a Bar &
Grill out on Packard Road called Banfield's.
Banfield's, by the grace of God, has a satellite dish which was capable of
picking up the Michigan-Purdue basketball match-up. For two hours, I ate,
drank and watched my favorite hoops team of any kind beat up on the
Boilermakers. 81-65. It was a crucial road win for the Wolverines and it got
my day off on the right foot. Little did I know that the thrills were to continue.
My next major activity was to be Michigan wrestling at Crisler Arena. The
grapplers hosted Northwestern in a dual meet with festivities commencing
at 7:30 p.m. By the way, before leaving for Crisler, I read two hous worth of
Art History 102. So nebishes, the day wasn't entirely without academia.
Six of us linked up with 92 other supporters as the Wolverines annihilated
the Wildcats, 44-7. It wasn't Big Ten wrestling at its best, but it was-
stimulating. And it was yet another Michigan victory. I was feeling lucky, so
me and another rushed over to Yost Ice Arena to catch the third period of
the Michigan-Bowling Green rematch from the previous night, in which the
Falcons had ripped us, 9-4.
We arrived at Yost with 1:50 remaining in the second period, just in time to'
see Michigan score a goal, extending its lead to 6-3. Okay, the Icers were set
to knock off the defending NCAA champs.
Red Berenson's men hung tough for the 8-6 triumph. Berenson is such a
winner. I'd like to see him in Ann Arbor for another 40 years or so.
There you have it, three-for-three - basketball, wrestling and hockey.
Now I was good and ready to go to an overcrowded party and fight my way
over to the keg. By 12:30 a.m. I had reached the fraternity house and before
I knew it I was blitzed off my keester. The perfect day.
Granted, this is not everyone's conception of the ideal lifestyle. It just
seems that most undergraduates are too uptight for their own good.
Concentrating on your courses and getting the good grades are undoub-
tedly keys to success. But when it's time to let off a little steam, brave the
chill and treat yourself to a Michigan sporting event. As a fan at an event,
the pressures of school are momentarily forgotten. And you are supporting
your beloved University by your mere physical presence.
Think about it, you've got nothing to lose. So many of you guys, especially,
are on the verge of forcing yourself all the way to Crisler. Stop being lazy,
get up, get out, you've got some of the best teams in the country to watch.
This is Michigan not Monroe Community College. I'm talking Wolverines
not Rainbows. It's time for a New Year's resolution that is within the realm
of possibility.
Too many individuals are willing to let their college experience slip by
without a good fight. This weekend check out a sporting event on campus.
It's only a game but it can be a great time.

In reply .
passive smoking more
than a minor nuisance
or real annoyance? .
That's a broad and vague statement being made in a nation-wide, multi-
million dollar campaign by R. J. Reynolds Tobacco Company.
For those who are fortunate not to have a chronic lung or heart disease,
who don't suffer from allergies, or who may not have an acute respiratory
illness that may be true. However, medical evidence is conclusive: passive
smoking is injurious to a large number of individuals - young and old, rich
and poor, and from any ethnic group.

Smoking is legal, no question about that.
But who has the right in a public place to
give some innocent bystander what the to-
bacco industry down plays as a "minor nui-
sance" or "real annoyance"?
According to the tobacco industry, smok-
ing is a personal decision made by adults.
Unfortunately the sidestream smoke from a
cigarette, pipe or cigar becomes public, af-
fecting everyone around, and therefore
should be subject to certain rules, controls
and laws to protect people in public places.
If we can have laws to protect us from
outdoor air pollution, why not for indoor
pollution from toxic tobacco smoke?

The tobacco industry complains about nonsmokers: "Total strangers feel
free to abuse us verbally in public without warning." That's usually the re-
sult when someone assaults another, and being forced to breathe another's
tobacco smoke is considered assault.
The majority of Americans are nonsmokers. There's something wrong
with the system when those in the minority can have such a drastic effect
on the majority. . . and that's what so often happens when smokers' sides-
tream smoke invades the public air space of nonsmokers.
