A FUNNY thing happened to Bill Frieder Thursday
night after his Michigan basketball team beat
Purdue by a point.
A Purdue fan drew Frieder into a serious shouting
match as the Wolverine coach ascended the steps of
Mackey Arena to his usual post-game radio interview.
"He started calling me every name in the book, so I
retaliated a little," said Frieder, who had apparently
turned to punctuate his own list physically before
Michigan's sports information director stepped in,
reminding the coach of his prior commitment.
Michigan's players had a similar experience in the
first 40 minutes of Saturday's overtime loss to Illinois.
In the first half, the Illini hurled a few choice insults
Michigan's way. Their dominance of the nationally-
televised game called the Wolverines "overrated."
Illinois' double-figure lead throughout the period and
20-7 rebounding edge taunted Michigan with the label
Illinois guard Tony Wysinger, whose play in over-
time eventually gave the Illini the last word, said he
was ready to call the Wolverines "losers."
"They weren't pressing us much in the first half, and
I think (the second half) kind of surprised us because
we thought they had folded," said Wysinger.
Michigan's comeback in regulation proved Wysinger
wrong and proved the Wolverines worthy of some other
Call the whole team courageous for regrouping like it
did after intermission to make up a 13-point deficit.
More importantly, call Michigan vastly improved
Down by similar margins against Minnesota and
Michigan State, the Wolverines lost all semblance of
composure. In Saturday's second half, they were cool,
tightening up defensively and running their half-court
offense as effectively as they have in weeks.
That mental discipline cracked only twice: unfor-
tunately for Michigan both times were in the last 45
seconds of regulation.
So call Gary Grant and Antoine Joubert human. The
Wolverines' top two scorers on the day, they both made
essential contributions. What stands out, however, is -
Name calling ...
.. Illini get final say
that each unnecessarily rushed a crucial shot because
they didn't know they had time.
Everybody makes mistakes. Grant and Joubert were
untimely ones, but they probably won't make the same
Speaking of repetition, call Roy Tarpley's a valiant
effort on both ends. The refs called his fourth foul early
in the second half (again), but Tarpley still slowed
Efrem Winters, scored well (again) and came up
(again) with a key block, this time to keep the game in
reach during the overtime.
On the lighter side, call Frieder an up-and-coming-
comic, due to his performance after Saturday's game.
Somebody asked him if the comeback was the best he'd
"I had a sixth grade team once," Frieder deadpan-
ned. "We were behind 39-6. We went to a zone. Beat 'em
41-39. Scored 35 straight points. My daughter scored
Maybe you had to be there.
Speaking of comics (as in Marvel), call Illinois for-
ward Ken Norman the most imposing, intimidating-
looking figure in the conference. With a shaved head
and muscle to spare, the 6-8, allegedly only 215-pound
Norman looks like he should be playing in a cape and
leotards with a big "I" on the chest.
"Look! Over the rim. It's a bird..."
While we're on the subject, shouldn't Michigan's
third forward off the bench be called Steve "The
Stork" Stoyko? It just seems to fit.
But what to call Robert Henderson? The 6-9 senior
has proved again Saturday that he deserves a
nickname more interesting than "Michigan's sixth
man" or "the guy who wears white sneakers."
Henderson substituted for both Tarpley and Butch
Wade, hitting all his field goals and three of four free
throws for 11 points. He also grabbed a couple big
rebounds while doing the defensive job on Norman.

The Illini, sparked by a 25-point per-
formance from senior center Efrem
Winters, ran up a 14-point lead before
halftime. A Wysinger jumper exten-
ded the edge to 17 with 16 minutes left
in the contest.
Michigan then intensified its defen-
sive pressure and chopped Illinois'
lead to nine, courtesy of four con-
secutive buckets from Grant.
A JOUBERT five-foot baseline pop
cut it to 54-49, and after five minutes
of offense from Henderson, forward
Rich Rellford, and center Roy Tar-
pley, the Wolverines had erased
Illinois' advantage and taken a 61-60
Tarpley (18 points, five rebounds)
was instrumental for the lifesaving
Wolverines, sinking several baskets
from outside and muscling under-
neath when Michigan needed brawn.
Surprisingly, Tarpley did his best
work while in foul trouble. One minute
into the second half, the officials
whistled Tarpley for his fourth foul
with Michigan down by 11. The
Detroit Cooley graduate then poured
in 10 second-half points and came up
with a critical block in overtime that
brought Michigan within two.
BUT NEITHER Tarpley nor any
other Michigan big man was able to
stop Winters or 6-8, 215 pound forward
Ken Norman, who pumped in 22 poin-
ts in the full 45 minutes.

Odor on the court! Methinks me
smells something most foul!
Such is the lament of the women's
basketball team, which lost its case to
Illinois yesterday, 85-64, by the ver-
dict of two zebra-striped jurors whose
integrity was often called into
question by the beleagured Maize 'n'
"IT WAS a disgrace!" moaned
Michigan boss Bud Van De Wege, the
recipient of a double technical foul.
"It was an embarrasment to the
league - the worst-officiated game
I've ever sat through."
The evidence? Under the guidance
of sharpshooter Lorea Feldman (nine
-of-12 from the floor) and backup cen-
ter Sharon Sonntag (12 points),
Michigan unveiled a 30-for-64 field-
goal effort, shouting down Illinois' 29-
for-61 Exhibit A.
The most serious injustice
prevailed at the center position.
Illinois' 6-3 Jenelle Polk hit 12-of-15
free throws while picking up one foul
during her breathtaking 30-point per-
MICHIGAN'S three rotating cen-
ters, however, were the victims of 12
whistles. Sonntag was only called for
two, but starting center Sandy
Svoboda fouled out with 8:26 left.
Rookie Val Hall picked up her fifth
foul after only 12 minutes on the floor,
with 11:25 left.
"That 12 to one foul ratio for the
centers is the most ridiculous thing I
can ever imagine!" commented Van
While many of the calls were
questionable, primary victim Hall
said that much of Illinois' violence
received no punishment.
"THERE WERE a lot of moving
screens and blocks that they (the
refs) just wouldn't look at," she said.
"It makes you tentative. On the play
where I fouled out, she (Polk) grab-
bed at my arm. I knew I'd get called
the way it was going."
Despite the negative factors, which
Van De Wege said "really took away
our confidence... (and) took us out of
our game," Michigan's case may not
be as hopeless as the final score made
