'M' aimstobreak Big Ten jinx

B By ADAM MARTIN
B Bill Frieder isn't smiling. He
can't. The Big Ten is on his mind.
The media, the city, the country has
tabbed Michigan as a Final Four con-
tender, but first the Wolverines must
contend in the Big Ten, a league
where all ten clubs have captured the
conference crown at least twice.
"There's no way we're going to ac-
complish what the people of Ann Ar-
bor think we'll accomplish," Frieder
said last week at the annual Big Ten
luncheon.
Frieder is scared. He feels a heated
challenge in front of him from Lou
Henson's Fighting Illini, and eight
other talented clubs.
Illinois faced a similar dilemma
last year. The Illini took the title in
1983-84, but dropped to second in the
dust of last season's (26-4)
steamrolling Wolverines. The
Wolverines weren't Illinois' only
problem.
"Last year, all the teams did
research into Illinois," said Illini
assistant coach Dick Nagy. "They
analyzed what we did well and what
we didn't, and some of our players
didn't make the right adjustments."
As a result, Illinois dropped six
conference road games and could
never recover. This year, the Illini
should return, no doubt with a
vengeance. Despite the loss

of strongman George Montgomery
the Illini return seven experienced
Big Ten players, and as Nagy put it,
"There's no substitute for experien-
ce."
Forward Efrem Winters and 1984-85
Illinois Most Valuable Player Doug
Altenberger are back, as are senior
guard Bruce Douglas (second team
All-Big Ten last season), senior for-
ward Anthony Welch and the 63.2 per-
cent field goal shooting center Ken
Norman, whom Nagy considers as good
as, and probably quicker and stronger
than Montgomery.
"Our name keeps coming up,"
Nagy said. "We're definitely ex-
perienced, we've been in post-season
competition, so people expect us to
have a good team. We expect to win."
'Expectations mean little, however,
so Nagy's prepared for challenges
from nine sides. The Illini will face the
challenges with experience, as will
Michigan. But the rest of the Big Ten
is not as fortunate.
Indiana, the team many feel will
surge back to the forefront in the con-
ference, returns a nucleus of three
seniors and two juniors, including
Olympic point guard Steve Alford.
Still, the Hoosiers were experienced
last season when they finished a
disappointing seventh, at 7-11 in the
Big Ten and 19-14 overall.
This year, big man Uwe Blab is

gone, and not surprisingly the Hoosiers
are lacking size and muscle to fill the
paint. Their experience stretches no
further than 6-8, 220 pounds. Ap-
propriately, Indiana's game will
change.
"We'll have a different look," said
Alford. "It's hard to tell what we'll do.
We'll be an up tempo team because
we've got to compensate for lack of
height."
Alford hopes Indiana's quick pace
will frustrate the opposition. "The
key will be how much pressure we can
put on opposing defenses (with the
running game) before they set up,"
Alford added.
With a well-oiled running game in
high gear, Alford is confident the
Hoosiers can compete for the Big
Ten Championship. But few, people
are as confident as Steve Alford.
The Minnesota Golden Gophers
might also turn some heads in the
league, but no one is too sure. "I don't
see why people aren't talking about
Minnesota," said Purdue coach Gene
Keady.
In fact, people are talking, in-
cluding Gopher head coach Jim Dut-
cher. With a much-improved center in
John Shasky, and the return of Mit-
chell Lee (whom Dutcher reinstated
after waiting what he felt was long
enough for action on Lee's sexual
