a defeat would give the loser a 1-4
Big Ten record and bleak prospects
for winning the conference title.
Besides having identical conference
records, the two teams field similar
three-guard oriented teams.
SENIOR GUARD Darryl
Johnson has replaced the departed
Scott Skiles as the Spartans top
offensive threat. The Flint native
averages a team leading 23.5 points
per game and tallied 29 points in
Michigan State's win over Ohio
"(Johnson) has been in pressure
situations before because he's a
senior," said Buckeye coach Gary
Williams. "He definitely knows
how to play the game and just goes
out and gets things done."
Senior Vernon Carr (11.7 ppg)
and freshman Kirk Manns (7.6) also
start in the backcourt. Sophomore
Todd Wolfe will see extensive duty
after his 15-point effort against
With experienced guard play on
both sides, the contest may be
decided in other areas.
"THE OUTCOME of the
game could well be decided by
which team's limited inside offense
or defense comes to play," said
Heathcote. "We almost mirror one
another in terms of how we play
and in terms of strengths and
Before the season, Heathcote
planned to bolster his inside game
by moving last season's starting
center Barry Fordham to power
forward and starting redshirt transfer
George Papadakos in the pivot. The
7-0 Papadakos (3.5 ppg) foiled
"We have been very disappointed
with George," said Heathcote. "He
has just not had the physical
strength and toughness to log much
playing time. We thought by now
he would be contributing more than
Michigan's inside game has been
contributing more recently. Center
Mark Hughes scored 11 points,
many coming from the outside in
Monday's loss to Indiana.
Unfortunately, Hoosier center Daryl
Thomas countered with 22 points
from the inside.
"I've told you all along we have
limitations on the inside," said
Michigan head coach Bill Frieder.
"It's getting better offensively. But
when you got your center who
should be a power forward and your
power forward who should be a
small forward, you have problems
against a great team like that
Michigan's biggest problem
heading into tonight's game is
coming back from the crushing
one-point defeat to Indiana.
"We have to bounce back
quickly and not worry what has
happened," said Frieder. "We have
to get our attitudes good and go out
and work hard."
