Hoosiers

no longer champions

By PETE STEINERT
BLOOMINGTON - I played
Pictionary last night, the hottest
game since Etch-A-Sketch.
For those still unfamiliar with
Pictionary, the object is to help your
partner identify a subject through
sketched clues - no letters or num-
bers allowed.'
I rolled the die, moved our team's
block five spaces, and landed on
green, indicating the difficult cate-
gory.
I chose a card and what name
should appear but Indiana Hoosiers
basketball.
I said to myself, "Geez, can't you
ever get rid of these guys? Their
coach has a book written about him.
They won the national champi-
onship last year. And now they've
invaded board games."
I guess good things happen to
teams that win six Big Ten champi-
onships, two co-championships, and
three national titles in the last 16
years.
With some resistance, I decided to
make most of the situation.
My first thought was to draw a
Hoosier. I quickly had to scratch
that. What the heck is a Hoosier?
There's Wolverines, Spartans, and
Wildcats, but what the heck is a
Hoosier?
Okay, no need to panic, I rea-
soned. I had a whole minute to do
this. I got it. I'll sketch a map of the
state of Indiana.
So much for that attempt at clev-
erness. My partner guessed it was a
silhouette of Abraham Lincoln. All
right, so I'm no map maker. I have
to admit, it did resemble our 16th
president.
My next brainstorm involved

is,

drawing a full moon with a face and
everything. That way my partner
will think Knight and then Bob
Knight. Get it?
"Oh, I know!" exclaimed my
partner. Finally, he's going to get it,
I thought. "It's that one guy," my
partner continued. "Oh, what's his
name? Ah, Telly Savalas!" Good
Grief.
This game's too tough. I should
have stuck to checkers.
I was desperate. Why couldn't I
have picked something easier?
With the lack of a better idea in
mind, I tried to draw the faces of past
Indiana greats Kent Benson, Isiah
Thomas, Ray Tolbert, and Steve
Alford.
I knew it wouldn't work. My
partner believed it was Mount
Rushmore. What's with the guy and
his presidents anyway?
Time was running out. So was
the point of my pencil. I ran my
hands through my hair thinking
what would best capture the essence
of Indiana Hoosier basketball.
I would have drawn Assembly
Hall, but that's asking a little too
much.
Then it hit me.
With no time to spare, I tore off
the sheet of paper I was using,
crumpled it up, and started with a
clean sheet.
The pencil started to flow so eas-
ily. (I knew all those years of art

class in grade school would come in
handy someday.)
I drew fourteen basketball players
and one coach climbing a steep
mountain with a Big Ten champi-
onship trophy at the top. The coach
held a sagging national champi-
onship banner.
"Oh, why didn't you say so
sooner?" my partner asked. "Indiana
Hoosier basketball, right?"
Right.
Blue Banter
-Knight created a minor stir in the
first half with his exceptionally
harsh treatment of Steve Eyl. During
a timeout after a Hoosier turnover,
he lambasted Eyl for nearly a minute
before shoving the senior towards
the bench. The fans responded with
boos, but that didn't stop Knight
from continuing his tirade on Eyl
when play resumed.
-In an apparent ignorance of the
bigamy laws the already-spoken-for
Frieder proposed marriage to Gary
Grant after the game. "Will you
marry me? Will you be my wife?"
he said. Grant accepted, sealing the
deal by planting a kiss on Frieder's
cheek. No date had been set as of
press time.
-The victory was Michigan's third
win in its last four trips to Indiana.
Prior to that, the Wolverines had
dropped 16 straight, dating back to
the Cazzie Russell era.

Knight, who had over a week to
prepare his team for the game.
"We were very quick to start (the
zone) because Knight knows we play
all man-to-man. That must be more
zone than I've ever played in eight
years combined," said Frieder.
INDIANA'S Keith Smart ap-
peared to have the most difficulty
with thedefense, hitting just one of
six shots en route to a six-point
performance. Rick Calloway led the
Hoosiers with 14 and Dean Garrett
scored 12.
Ten of Calloway's points came in
the first half, which ended with
Michigan leading 35-30. The sellout
crowd of 17,289 had plenty to cheer
about when Indiana took an early 5-0
lead, but Michigan countered with
six consecutive points.
Indiana had a 10-8 lead when the
baskets suddenly stopped coming.
For 7:44, the Hoosiers did not hit a
field goal, although they did make
10 free throws over that span.
Still, Knight was not disap-
pointed with his team's early per-
formance. "Being down by five at
the half, I thought we were still in a
