Hoosiers nip the Wolverines, 85-84

The two-time defending Big Ten
champion Michigan Wolverines are
not ready to hand over their crown
without a fight. Indiana defeated
Michigan 85-84 in one of the
greatest losses in recent Michigan

a running five-footer that bounded
high off the rim and gently fell

Hoosiers the victory.
The Wolverines had scrapped
back from a 19-point deficit,
eventually taking the lead, 84-83,
on a Gary Grant free throw with

control when Hoosier Steve Eyl hit
him. The Michigan junior guard
sank the first free throw but missed
the second, which was rebounded by
Hoosier Daryl Thomas (22 points),
giving Indiana a chance to win.
"IT WAS A a situation where
Daryl got the rebound to me," said
Alford. "I knew I had the shot. I
knew they didn't want to foul me

grabbed three clutch rebounds
during the crucial stretch.
Indiana led 73-58 with just over
eight minutes left, when the
Wolverines came alive. Seven
quick points, keyed by Grant's
defense and Michigan's effective
transition game, cut the defecit to
eight at 73-65. Michigan's
tenacious work on Indiana's guards
continued to create turnovers giving
Thompson the chance to hit a 23-
foot prayer, slicing the Indiana edge
to 80-74 with 3:50 left.
Eyl, who scored just nine points

center Mark Hughes, the
sophomore's fifth, with 3:34 to
play. Joe Hillman sank the first free
throw for the temporarily injured
Eyl, but missed the second.
THOMPSON continued his
air-raid mastery with a 22-foot
bomb, making the score 81-77.
The 6-1 guard stole an Indiana
pass and assisted Loy Vaught,
Hughes' replacement, to slice the
Indiana lead in half.
Alford managed to get open on
the left wing and fired up a 15-
footer which, to everyone's
surprise, missed. Thompson won
the scramble for the rebound and
threw an outlet pass to a streaking
Glen Rice for a slam dunk, which
tied the contest at 81-81.
After trailing as much as 22-12
at the game's start, the Hoosiers
were down 24-19 when the game
turned around. Grant picked up his
third foul, an offensive charge on
the baseline, with 7:55 to play in
the first half. Indiana outscored the
Wolverines 32-10 in the rest of the

shot by Jack Kramer. The Hoosier
star then sank both ends of a one-

Wo men cagers split pair
By GREG MOLZON
This past weekend proved to be a
mixed bag of good news and bad
news for Bud Van De Wege and his
women's basketball team as they
split their first two Big Ten road
games of the year.
First, the bad news. Following
two home losses to start the
conference season, the Wolverines
went to Columbus Friday looking
for their first Big Ten win.
However, the 18th-ranked Buckeyes
had other ideas and sent Michigan
reeling out of St. John Arena with
their third straight loss, 72-48.
The experienced Buckeye team
dominated the game in every phase
and put the Wolverines away early.
Michigan shot only 17 percent
from the floor in the first half and
trailed 42-10 at the half.
AFTER THAT, Van De
Wege saw the game as a learning
experience. "Basically, it was a
case of a very young team being
overpowered by a national power on
their home floor." Van De Wege
said. "We learned a lesson on the
road that you really have to pull
together as a team."
The Wolverines didn't even have
a single scorer in double figures, as
they were led by Lisa Reynolds,
Sharon Sonntag, and Vonnie
Thompson, each with eight points.
Enough of the bad news. A
Sunday afternoon trip to
Bloomington gave the Wolverines
another chance to get their first Big
Ten win. And this time, the team
came out of the game with good
Michigan had four players in
double figures and pulled out a slim
65-63 victory over the Hoosiers.
The Wolverines took the lead five
minutes into the second half and led
the rest of the way, although
Indiana missed a shot at the buzzer
which could have tied it.
DEFENSE WAS the key to
the win, as the team was able to
shut down the Hoosiers' inside
game and force them to take outside
shots. Indiana's Carna Abram,
who was leading the Big Ten in
scoring with an average of 24
points a game, was held to just 12
"Defensively, our game plan
worked to perfection and
offensively, we made the most of
our chances every time down the
floor," Van De Wege said.
Lorea Feldman paced the
Wolverines with 18 points in the
contest. Sonntag and Reynolds
each added 14 points and Thompson
played an excellent overall game
with 12 points and 10 assists.
Van De Wege was pleased to
come out of the weekend with a
split and his first conference win,
but the team can't relax for too
