Wolverine victory not 6

even a nice personality.
Shots weren't falling for either
team. Michigan couldn't seem to get
off an undeflected pass and Georgia
Tech couldn't seem to make an uncon-
tested layup. The Ramblin' Wreck
shot 36.3 percent on layups.
IN DEFENSE of both teams, it was
aggressive defense at both ends. The
Yellow Jackets, in particular, baffled
the Wolverines with a swarming trap
"I think they knew all our plays,"
said Joubert. "We'd call a play and
they'd already be there."
"We were shooting too early," said
Michigan head coach Bill Frieder.
"We weren't getting the weak-side
people in the game.
"WE WERE very tight in the early
going, so I tried relaxing them a little
at the half. I told them a joke. I said
'Hell, everyone in the country is sit-
ting at home with his girlfriend wat-
ching Miami and Notre Dame with a
martini in their hand."'
The Wolverines did clean up their
act a bit in the second half.
Bruce Dalrymple picked up his
fourth foul just four minutes into the
action. He was replaced by
sophomore Craig Neal (0-7), leaving
the door wide open for Joubert.
THE JUNIOR guard led the
comeback. Joubert wasn't just
leading the team in scoring, he gave
Michigan a little floor direction -
something not seen in the first half.
Following a Price missed free
throw, the Judge connected on a 16-
foot jumper to pull Michigan to within
one, 31-30 with 9:33 left in the game.
Robert Henderson tied the game at
31 on a free throw following a foul by
Tech's Antoine Ford and Tarpley
gave the Wolverines their first lead of
the game with 8:08 left.
THE WOLVERINES never trailed
the rest of the way, sinking nine of
their last ten free throws to preserve
For its part, Georgia Tech never got
on track. The Yellow Jackets were
sorely impaired by a Price-less offen-
"Price has been going out to prove
that he's the best guard in the coun-
try," said Cremins. "The pressure on
him is tremendous."
PRICE SEEMED more willing to
"It just didn't feel good today," he
said after the game. "I didn't go out
there with the feeling that I had to
prove anything. I'm not worried
about being a hero one day and a bum
the next. I go out and play for coach
Cremins and the team.
