Mills and Robinson
Continued from Page 4
Fans might have been lucky
enough to witness a sneak preview
of the tandem this past summer. The
two were paired on the same team in
the Olympic Sports Festival. While
it was Robinson's second summer
competing in the games, it was
Mills' first opportunity to impress.
And impress he did.
While averaging double figures in
points and rebounds, he received the
opportunity to go up against that
flat-topped Tarheel that he was so
often compared to in high school. In
the critics' eyes, T.M. came out on
top of J.R. Still, Mills wasn't
thrilled by his performance.
"I was kind of disappointed and
happy with my play against him,"
said Mills. "I would have done better
if I had been in shape. He knew I
was winded and that's when he
scored a couple of baskets on me.
Mills continued, "One time I kept
telling the coach, 'I'm tired coach,
you gotta get me out.' He was say-
ing, 'You're killing J.R., you can't
come out.' I said, 'I'm tellin' you

fouls and he told me he should have

Michigan 104, Purdue 68
March 7, 1987
The Wolverines saved their best
Purdue entered the final weekend
of the Big Ten season riding an
eight-game winning streak and
needing a win to claim its first
outright conference championship
since 1969. .
Michigan, however, posed as
spoilers to the Boilermakers,
cruising to 36-point victory behind
the inspired play of Antoine Joubert
and Garde Thompson. The two
seniors were playing in their last
game at Crisler Arena. Joubert
scored a game-high 30 points.
The loss left Purdue head coach
Gene Keady with a bad taste in his
mouth. "Why doesn't bleeping'

For the third- year in a row
Michigan advanced past the first
round of the NCAA Tournament,
this time by defeating David
Robinson and, oh yeah, Navy, too.
Garde Thompson had the hot
hand for the Wolverines, scoring 33
points, 20 in the first half.

had, I'm sure that enhanced his.

The Boilermakers were co-champs
in the conference last year, but ended
the season on-a sour note after a 104-
68 drubbing by Michigan and a
second-round loss to Florida in the
NCAAs. Memories of last March
have caused Keady to hold back on
giving too much praise to his
talented seniors. "I'm very proud of
them," Keady said, "But of course a
lot is going to depend on how they
play in March -frwhether I still say
that six months from now."~
