Weary Badgers to battle Blue
By JEFF RUSH
The one predictable outcome of a
college basketball game is that at
least one team will win.
And that is good news for either
the Michigan Wolverines or the
Wisconsin Badgers, who will meet
at Crisler Arena at 8 p.m. tonight.
Bill Frieder's Wolverines (15-9
overall, 6-6 Big Ten) are mired in a
slump that includes losses to Ohio
State, no. 2 Indiana, and Michigan
"Were kind of in a lull here,"
said Frieder. "We've had the tough
three-game road trip over the past
two weeks and we came out on the
THE BADGERS (11-15
overall, 1-12 Big Ten) won't be
shedding any tears for the
Wolverines, though. The talented
young team won 10 of its first 13
games, but looks as if it will turn
in Wisconsin's worst conference
record during head coach Steve
Yoder's five-year tenure.
"The frustrations ended about
three weeks ago," said Yoder. "Now
it's just a matter of going out and
understanding that you are an
athlete and athletes don't quit. And
these guys are good athletes."
If Monday night is any
indication of how good a team
Wisconsin can be, then Yoder is
speaking the truth. The Badgers, led
by the 20-point efforts of Mike
Heineman and J.J. Weber, stayed
even with league-leading Indiana
before losing, 86-85, in three
And despite having only one
conference win, the Badgers have
"THE WAY they played was
sensational. If you take the way
they played last night and compare
it to the way we've played the last
two weeks, they should be 15- or
Yoder has a number of problems
to contend with in getting his team
ready for tonight's game. After
Monday night's epic, his whole
team could tire very quickly against
the well-rested Wolverines.
Heineman is banged up,
although Yoder said he should be
fine by tonight. Freshman Danny
Jones has the flu and probably will
not start, but will play, according
to Yoder. Finally, the players are
bogged down with mid-terms.
Even at home, playing one of
their best games of the season, the
Badgers couldn't muster a win
against the Wolverines, losing 84-
78. Glen Rice led Michigan with
AGAINST THE Wolverines
tonight, Yoder said, "We've got to
stop the perimeter play of Garde
Thompson, and (Gary) Grant, and
(Antoine) Joubert, but we've got to
be aware of the improvement of the
The Badgers will be helped out
by a less-than-healthy Grant.
According to Frieder, the junior
guard has an injury similar to the
one that sidelined Michigan football
player Paul Jokisch for two games
last season. Frieder said Grant's
upper leg muscles are strained and
there is some bleeding, which has
limited Grant to "one or two real
practices the past two weeks.
"He just does not have the lateral
movement he's had and he's about
half a step behind where he's been,":
said Frieder. "But if we don't play
him, there's no NCAA tournament.
for us, because we need him even f
he's only 70 percent."
The Wolverines have six regular
season games left - Wisconsin,'
Northwestern, Minnesota, Iowa,
Purdue, and Illinois - and
probably need three or four more
wins to make the post-season
tournament. Only the Minnesota
and Iowa games are on the road.
