ITS TEAMS PLAY boring
basketball, it can't win a NCAA
tournament, and it has a bunch of
big guys pounding on each other
until one team is left to claim the
conference championship.
That's what Big Ten basketball
used to be.
This year the Big Ten will have
a different look. Four new coaches,
an emphasis on speed and
quickness, and a probable new
conference champion come March
will make the Big Ten the
conference in college basketball this
year.
And who knows? Maybe even a
national champion will come out of
the bunch.
The major differences in the Big
Ten- this year are the coaching
changes. Iowa, Ohio State,

Northwestern and Minnesota have
new leaders. Together, Tom Davis,
Gary Williams, Bill Foster and
Clem Haskins have 55 years of
college basketball experience and a
composite 61.8 career winning
percentage.
All four stress pressing defense
and fast break offense, a change
from the physical, defense-oriented
style that has characterized the
conference in years past.
"I do think the new coaches will
make a difference," said Illinois
coach Lou Henson. "The Big Ten is
moving to an up-tempo league and
the addition of the new coaches will
only enhance that."
The conference, which placed a
record-tying six teams in the
NCAA tournament and had another
(Ohio State) win the NIT
championship last season, returns
18 of last year's top 25 scorers, and

33 of 50 starters.
A changing of the guard is
taking place in the conference this
season. Michigan, the Big Ten's
conference champ the past two
seasons, will most likely relinquish
the crown to one of four teams that
have national champion aspirations
as well..
Indiana, Purdue, Iowa, and
Illinois are ranked high in every
pre-season poll, and according to
Wolverine coach Bill Frieder, each
squad resembles the last two
Michigan teams.
"They've really got the types of
teams that we had the last couple of
years," said Frieder. "It's nice to
have veterans returning from
successful campaigns and that's
what Big Ten championship teams
are made of."
Indiana (21-8 overall, 13-5 in the
Big Ten) is the favorite to capture
the crown. Bob Knight's Hoosiers
finished second last year, and return
three starters including pre-season
Big Ten Player of the Year Steve
Alford.
Alford is the league's leading
returning scorer. He averaged 22.5
points a game last season. The New
Castle, Indiana native also hit on
87 percent of his free throws. His
numbers should be even better this
year with the advent of the enticing,
19-foot-9 three-point shot.
Also returning are forwards
Ricky Calloway and Daryl Thomas.
Calloway (13.9 ppg) was the
conference's Rookie of the Year last
season, while Thomas (14.5 ppg) is
back in action after Knight
suspended him two weeks ago for
academic reasons.
The season could depend,
however, on how well Junior
College Player of the Year Dean
Garrett adjusts to Big Ten
competition. Garrett averaged just
under 20 points a game for San
Francisco City College, and was
voted the Big Ten pre-season
Newcomer of the Year.
Still, the Hoosiers lack depth.
Junior forwards Steve Eyl and Todd
Jadlow will be pressed into action
for Knight, who is arguably the
best coach in the country, not to
mention the conference.
Gene Keady's Purdue
Boilermakers (22-10, 11-7) will
seriously threaten Indiana. The fans
in West Lafayette have reason to be
excited as Keady returns his four
top scorers from a year ago.
Leading the Boilermakers is a 6-
4 shooting machine named Troy
Lewis, who, like Alford, will
benefit from the three-point shot.

lost the game, but it was no sweat
off my back. What was I supposed
to say-we're going to lose? They
outplayed us.
"I speak for my team. It's not
being cocky, it's just having
confidence. If you don't believe in
yourself, who will? It's just like
you writers. If you don't believe
you can write, who will?"
Joubert blames any bad rap he
Hoop-la!
"I tell everybody we are going to
have a different look this year.
We're going to be small. But that
might be overshadowed by our poor
defense, lack of shooting and
country club attitude."
- Michigan basketball coach Bill
Frieder at last week's Big Ten
Media Conference
"See what happens when you win
two Big Ten Championships? You
start giving all that bullshit."
-Purdue coach Gene Keady's
reaction to Frieder's quips at the
same press conference
"I kid George and tell him he has to
do a little more than to help us
look good in airports."
- Michigan State coach Jud
Heat hcote on seven-foot transfer

"Is there a chronic waste dump
moving into Indiana that causes
this illness each year about this
time? I don't think I would
comment on-that. For years I
thought Indiana was a waste dump,
but after we recruited Scott Skiles
and Kirk Manns, I have to change
my opinions."
-- Heathcote explaining Bob
Knight's absence from the press
conference

might have on those same writers,
specifying those from in state:
"When we go other places to play I
get good write-ups," he said.
"People tear you down on bad
points and don't see the positive
points," said Joubert. "It doesn't
bother me. I come out to play. I
love to play the game.
"I don't read what (reporters) say
before the game or after the game.
All I want to do is beat the team.

I'm concentrating more on college
right now. After that we'll see what
happens."
What may happen is a
professional basketball career.
Joubert contends he could play in
the NBA despite his lack of speed.
"There are some guards in the
league that aren't that quick."
One wonders if he considers
Magic Johnson one of those guards.
"No names," said Joubert.
