another or hit someone on the
perimeter to shoot it straight in."
Tarpley's three-point play with
13:57 in the second half was the
pivotal point of the game. The 6-11
senior s layup sparked a 13-point run
to put the Wolverines up 56-44.
"The key in that stretch was we just.
really picked up the defense," Joubert
said. "That caused turnovers and fast
shots and gave us the ball and easy
baskets."
Michigan took a 33-32 lead into the
locker room at intermission when
Joubert connected on a 10-foot jumper
with five seconds remaining in the
half. The two teams had traded the
lead throughout the first frame, with
balanced scoring from four of Iowa's
starters. Hawkeye center Al Loren-
zen, in foul trouble most of the day,
was held to just two points in the con-
test.
Keeping the cause alive at the other
end was Michigan forward Richard
Rellford, who poured in five of six
shots from the floor to record all of his
11 points in the first 20 minutes.
"Don't underestimate Rellford's
performance," Frieder said. "He
was the guy that kept us in the game
in the first half. He was sensational
when we were struggling some."
The struggle was under the glass,
where Michigan normally dominates
opponents.
"We didn't think we were
aggressive enough on the boards" the
Michigan mentor said. "Iowa had 16
points - six baskets and four free

throws as a result of second and third
efforts on the offensive board in the
first half. We really got after them on
that. That was the biggest adjust-
ment that I thought we made."
"We started crashing the boards
even harder in the second half," Tar-
pley agreed. "I thought that was the
key."
Another struggle for Michigan was
in the foul department where Tarpley
again got into trouble early. In a two-
minute span midway through the first
half, the Wolverine center committed
three infractions and sat out the
remainder of the stanza.
The third whistle came at 10:41
when Tarpley tried to block Bill Jones'
shot under the basket. Tarpley was
sent to boil on the bench and Frieder
fumed. So much so, in fact, that the
sixth-year coach earhed a quick
technical - his second in as many
games.
"That was a bad call on Tarpley's
third foul - terrible call," Frieder
explained after the game. "He got out
of the way and it wasn't even close, so
I told (referee London Bradley) about
it."
While Bradley heard the complain-
ts, it was Glen Rice who saw the dirty
laundry. The freshman forward got
nailed in the head by Frieder's towel
when the coach chucked it toward the
bench.
Michigan's reserves didn't take the
gesture personally, though, and came
up with solid performances. Robert

"(Michigan has) got three guys sit-

The Kean Eye
By Tom Keaney
MICHIGAN'S VICTORY over Iowa on Saturday
was more than just a win for the home team. It
was college basketball at its very finest, from the
bruising play on the court to the coaches' playful com-
ments off it.
Yes, it was comedy night at the Crisler Arena press
room following the game, featuring both head coaches
shooting from the hip with some amusing lines.
First it was Raveling who, instead of making a sappy
deification of the Wolverines performance after losing
to them, drew a vivid analogy making everything oh so
clear.
"We just don't have enough firepower right now,"
said Iowa's third-year head coach. "We're using rifles
and those guys are using missiles. It's like the United
States versus Libya, and I'll tell you, I hate like hell to
be Khadafy."
But no, he wasn't through yet. He was just getting
started. Just laying down the foundation on the
pyramid of comedy.
"They talk about proposition 48 and all this stuff,
they ought to have a rule where you can make trades.
I'd take some of those guys that they had redshirted.
They have three guys sitting on the bench that could
play for 95 percent of the major colleges in the country.
You ought to be able to trade those guys. I'll give you
three Big Macs and a shake for (Robert) Henderson."
Next on the ticket at the Crisler Improv was Ann Ar-
bor's own Bill Frieder.
"I have to tell you about a letter I got from a fan. He
says 'I'm an avid fan, graduated class of '36 or '42 or
something. I just don't know what to do. I'm so disap-
pointed in the team, I don't know what to do. I'm so
disappointed in the team, I don't know what's going on.
Last year you beat Minnesota by 41. This year you
have a better team, their team's not as good, and you
only beat them by 36.' He said he was suicidal," said
Frieder.
"I'm going to write him back and tell him he's got a
screw loose and yes, maybe he should commit
suicide."

Coaches' comedy...
...keeps the game fun
Oh, those nutty pranksters.
Regardless of how funny the coaches were, however,
the mere fact that two major-college coaches can come
out after a nationally televised game and poke fun at
themselves says a lot for college basketball. It says
that at this level, basketball is still a game.
One of my disheartening moments as a sportswriter
was covering a Detroit Pistons-Boston Celtics game.
When I asked Dennis Johnson if he was upset at being
benched in the fourth quarter, he said, "No, it's just a
job."
Not college basketball. No, college ball is something
different.
It's Steve Stoyko holding Ron Gibas' head so he can't
look for his girlfriend during a timeout. It's Gary
Grant soaking Frieder's towel with perspiration during
a break in the action. It's painted faces waving madly
at TV cameras.
It was like that on Saturday. Good old-fashioned
hard-nosed hoops with all the trimmings played before
an enthused audience.
Raveling said after the game that this wasn't the
way James Naismith intended the game to be played
when he started athletes shooting balls into peach
baskets. He's wrong. If Naismith had been at Crisler
on Saturday he would have been on his feet.
He would have been booing when Frieder picked up
his second technical in two games ("Canham told me I
wasn't working hard enough," said Frieder). He
would have been cheering madly when Richard
Rellford pounded through an alley-oop just a few
seconds later.
It's the way the game is meant to be played, for fun,
like it was on Saturday.
Observations from Crisler:
*Butch Wade's four-for-four performance from the
free-throw line put him over 50 percent from the line
for the first time since his freshman year.
*Thursday and Saturday's crowds were a big im-
provement over the norm, due to Frieder's recent con-
cerns for crowd noise.
