PURDUE RETURNS HOME, LOOKS TO END SLIDE
Bumblin'Boilermakers face 'M'
By STEVE WISE
Gene Keady sounds like a troubled
In the past two weeks, the normally
jovial Purdue basketball coach has
watched his Boilermakers slide from
a tie with Michigan for the conference
lead to a 5-4 record, a tie for fourth
and the verge of elimination from the
Big Ten Race. Going into tonight's
game with The Wolverines, who still
lead the conference with a 7-2 record,
Keady is trying to work out his team's
problems and his own emotions.
"WE'VE GOT some frustration
going," Keady said. "When our inside
people shoot well, our outside people
aren't playing. When our outside
people shoot well we're not getting in-
"I'm very frustrated."
Purdue's shooters clearly struggled
in the three losses. The Boilermakers
field goal average hovered around 45
percent in those games compared
with a season average slightly better
than 50 percent.
THE MAINSTAY of Purdue's offen-
se, guard Troy Lewis, joined the sub-
par performances for the losses to In-
diana and Ohio State. The Hoosiers
held Lewis to 4-14 shooting and just
The 6-4 sophomore was strong
against Illinois, however, pumping in
30 points on 14-of-26 shooting.
"He was in a slump against Indiana
x and Ohio State," Keady said. "But he
had a good game at Illinois. I think
he's coming back now."
LEWIS SHOULD get help with his
return to form by the Boilers' return
to Mackey Arena, where they have
not lost a conference game this year.
Purdue's losses have all come in road
'It seems like we've been on the
road forever," said Keady.
Though he'd like to add to that eter-
nity, Michigan coach Bill Frieder
recognizes the difficulty of playing in
"We've got a very tough road trip,"
Ssaid Freider, anticipating the Illinois
game as well as tonight's. "Not many
teams can survive it.
PLYMOUTH, Ind. (AP) - An at-
torney for Michigan State basketball
star Scott Skiles said yesterday he
will continue negotiations with
prosecutors in an effort to avoid a
possible jail term for the Big Ten
player of the week.
Marshall Circuit Court Judge
Michael D. Cook earlier Wednesday
rejected without comment Skiles'
motion to dismiss a prosecution effort
to revoke his probation on a drug con-
The ruling clears the way for a Feb.
21 court hearing at which prosecutors
will attempt to show Skiles violated
probation by drinking and driving.
If the judge agrees, the 6-foot-1
senior guard could be ordered to serve
a one-year jail term.
"It will be heard then unless the
prosecutor and I reach an agreement
of some kind," said Skiles' attorney,
Charles Scruggs of Kokomo.
Cook also rejected motions filed by
Skiles' attorney asking to delay the
pro'eedings and appealing the
judge's earlier refusal to step aside
and allow a new judge to hear the
Skiles was not present when the
motions were argued Friday or when
the judge's rulings were entered.
Skiles' one-year probationary
period, and a one-year suspended jail
term, were imposed by Cook last
April after Skiles pleaded guilty to a
misdemeanor charge of possession of
Prosecutors filed to revoke
probation after Skiles was arrested
Nov. 7 in Michigan on a drunken
driving charge. Skiles has pleaded in-
nocent to the charge.
WITH PURDUE returning home af-
ter three losses, it's gonna be even
tougher," Frieder added. "They're
gonna have fire in their eyes."
As usual, Michigan will count on
Gary Grant as head extinguisher.
The 6-3 guard will try to slow Lewis,
who tossed in a game-high 20 points in
Purdue's loss to Michigan in Ann Ar-
Grant must repeat the job he did
against Wisconsin's Rick Olson,
whom he held to 12 points, rather than
his less successful defensive perfor-
mances on the road against Michigan
State's Scott Skiles, who scored 40.
SIMILARLY, the Wolverines must
continue the intense team defense
they displayed against Wisconsin and
Northwestern. Said co-captain Butch
Wade, "we hope we can carry over
and more or less head uphill against
Purdue and Illinois.''
Frieder said he wants his team to
maintain the enthusiasm it showed
last week, but he doesn't think the
Wolverines can use the full-court
press as much as they did.

DEFENSE HAS been the Boiler-
makers' biggest problem lately ac-
cording to Keady. He said Michigan's
transition game, which was effective
last week, plays to Purdue's
"People that fast break a lot have
been able to beat us," said Keady.
"We're not getting back on defense."
A win tonight is crucial if Purdue
wants to get back into the conference
race. If the Boilermakers lose, Keady
said, "I think it would be over for us."
THE GAME IS almost as crucial for
Michigan. Indiana, which along with
Iowa shares Michigan's number-one
spot, plays the almost automatic
home series against Northwestern
and Wisconsin, and Iowa plays just
one game against the depleted Golden
Gophers at Minnesota.
Michigan plays this week's road
series and then mostly home games, a
combination Keady said could give
the Wolverines a conference title.
"They've got a severe test in these
two games," Keady said. "As far as
winning a championship, it'll be over
if they win both.
"They'll do that if we don't get some
