DOUBLES KEY VICTORY
Men netters best Boilermakers
By JOE EWING
Another honor came Bill Frieder's
way yesterday for coaching the
Michigan basketball team to its first
Big Ten title and NCAA playoff ber-
th in eight years. And this honor is
probably the biggest one that the
already highly-honored Wolverine
coach has gotten yet.
Yesterday Frieder was named the
Associated Press National Coach of
the Year. In a ballot of media mem-
bers from across the country, the
Michigan head man edged out St.
John's head coach Lou Carnesecca,
49-41, for the honor. Georgetown
coach John Thompson received ten
votes in the poll.
"IT FEELS great," said Frieder
yesterday from his hotel room in
Lexington, Kentucky, where he had
gone to accept the award as well as
await the Final Four of the NCAA
playoffs. "I was surprised. I heard
about it this week, but they didn't
want me to say anything until they
announced it this morning."
And Frieder knows that the award
is important to his program.
"I think anytime you get an award
like that it shows that you're getting
national recognition, and that's what
we need here," he said. "I think it
shows that we're getting recognition
and respect. That's good for the
Earlier this month, Frieder ear-
ned Big Ten Coach of the Year
honors from both AP and United
Press International. He was also
named District Coach of the Year by
the National Association of Basket-
ball Coaches and National Coach of
the Year by Basketball Weekly.I

defeat a stubborn Purdue squad here
yesterday. The 5-4 win over a more ex-
perienced opponent improved the
Wolverine's overall record to 2-2. The
victory also lifted their Big Ten mark to
Wins by two of Michigan's three
doubles teams gave the Wolverines a
lead that the Boilermakers couldn't
overcome, even under sunny skies. The
win showed that even at this early stage
of the season the Wolverines are
developing a very important trait-the
ability to come back. This is what Big
Ten contenders are made of.
WOLVERINES JIM SHARTON and
Ed Filer defeated Kevin Gregory and
Jim Gray 6-2, 6-1. Michigan's other suc-
cessful duo, Jon Morris and John
Royer, defeated Jim Schumacher and
Mike Casio 6-1, 6-2.
The meet started off slowly for
Michigan as both their number one and
number two singles players were
defeated. Michigan junior Sharton was
beaten by Gregory 3-6, 6-4, 7-6. Gray of
Purdue turned the trick as well by
defeating Royer 6-1, 6-7, 6-0.
Filer picked up some of the slack for
the Wolverines as he took care of An-
drew Hocker 6-2, 7-5. Boilermaker
Schumacher returned the favor by
besting Brad Koontz 6-3, 6-2.
The rest of the singles matches,
however, belonged to the Wolverines.
Freshman Franz Geiger started it off
by defeating his opponent, Tom Reilly,
6-4, 6-3. John Solik furthered the cause
by winning 6-4, 7-6 over Cliff Reister,
Solik's victory gave the team the
momentum it needed going into the
The.last doubles match went to Pur-
due, but the outcome of the meet was no
longer in question. Hocker and Reister
defeated Koontz and Solik 6-3,6-1.

The first period was the proverbial
"feeling out" session for both teams.
The contrast in styles between east and
west was very apparent.
UM-D outshot its opponents in the
opening frame, 13-7, but was less
threatening. The Bulldogs owned the of-
fensive zone, but the Engineer defense
kept the shots long and from the out-
At 4:51 of the first frame both teams
were assessed two penalties for un-
necessary roughness. But the penalties
worked to RPI's advantage.

THE TEAMS exchanged roles in the
second period. UM-D played RPI's
streaking style, coming up with three
goals in the frame.
Senior right wing Mark Baron
quickly accounted for the first two. At

Vols snatch NIT consolation
NOT ENOUGH ROOM IN YOUR TRUNK?
NEW YORK (AP) - Anthony
Richardson scored 30 points and keyed
a game-deciding vburst early in the
second half as Tennessee's basketball
team overpowered Louisville 100-84 last
tight in the third place game of the 48th
National Invitation Tournament.
Indiana faced UCLA in the cham-
pionship game late last night.
LOUISVILLE'S loss snapped a streak
of 13 consecutive 20-win seasons for
Cardinals Coach Denny Crum, whose
team finished the season at 19-18.
Tennessee had the game well in hand
virtually from the middle of the first
period when. the Volunteers led by as
many as 18 points before Louisville cut
the margin to 53-41 at the half.
Richardson then scored 12 points to
trigger Tennessee into a 75-54 lead with
14 minutes left.
THE CARDINALS, led by Billy
Thompson, who scored 27 points, added a
late rush to cut Tennessee's advantage
to seven points twice.
With the Volunteers holding an 85-78
edge with three minutes left, Tennessee
won the game at the foul line by out-
scoring Louisville 15-6 the rest of the
way, with 13 of the points coming from
the free throw line.
Michael Brooks, who had 26 points for
Tennessee (22-15) made eight of the foul
shots down the stretch.
Jeff Hall and Mark McSwain each
added 10 points for Louisville in the
game that resembled a schoolyard
pickup contest, with loose play, little
defense and little regard for the 45-
second shot clock.
