Hawkeye coach Tom Davis. "They
were crisp and sharp in every ting
,}they did."
Glen Rice, who scored a game-
high 35 points on 15-of-22
shooting, started the ball rolling by
joking the contest's opening tip and
',inking a short bank shot.
"I love to run and gun," Rice said
about the game's wide-open tempo.
The 6-7 junior scored 33 points in
Michigan's win over the Hawkeyes
; last year at home.
Following Rice's opening game
bucket, Gary Grant and Terry Mills
proceded to score 26 of Michigan's
next 28 points. In that stretch Grant
dropped in 16 points, nine of them
on three pointers.
Grant finished the game with 29
points, nine assists, and four steals.
In his second straight solid effort
Mills supplied 18 points.
Just as important, Grant held the
Hawkeyes' leading scorer B.J.
Armstrong to two points in the
pivotal first half. Armstrong finished
with 15.
"I was kind of shocked (by the
outcome of the game), but not that
shocked," Grant said. "I can't be that
shocked because our team prepared
well, and we were ready to play."
"Gary's not going to tell you this
because he's got too much pride,"
Frieder said. "(But) he's tired about
that nonsense about B.J. being the
best guard in the league."
The Hawkeyes could not establish
" anything on either sides of the floor.

Rush Delivery
BY JEFF RUSH

'M' shows plenty character
in 120-103 Iowa drubbing
Purdue coach Gene Keady's worst nightmare came true last night.
By rights, he should have slept soundly after his team's 86-62 win
over Wisconsin last night. The win keeps his Boilermakers tied for first
in the conference.
But Keady tossed and turned all last night, not able to get out of his
mind the sounds of a year ago.
"You know what bleeping pisses me off," asked Keady after his team
crumbled against Michigan, 104-68, last year. "Why doesn't bleeping
Michigan play like this every bleeping game? You know why? It's be-
cause they got no bleeping character."
Uh-huh. You ever hear about how crimes of the past catch up with
you, Gene?
THE MICHIGAN TEAM that he complained had no character
showed again last night they have plenty of it. And you know the
Wolverines will remember what he said last year after the Wolverines
smashed the Boilermakers in the final conference game.
The teams play each other this Sunday afternoon.
Last year's game was for all the marbles.
This Sunday's rematch is for all the marbles.
Last year a Purdue win would have given the Boilermakers the Big
Ten championship all to themselves.
This year a Michigan win would give the Wolverines sole posses-
sion of the conference lead. That is something the Wolverines haven't
had in almost two years, since they whipped Indiana on the last day of
the 1986 Big Ten season to win the championship.
Last year the Purdue loss sent the Boilermakers into a shock they
couldn't recover from going into the NCAA Tournament. They lost in
the second round to lowly regarded Florida.
This year a Purdue win would make it nearly impossible for any Big
Ten team to overtake the Boilermakers the rest of the season.
THINK Bill Frieder's team will remember what Keady said?
"I'm sure they will," said Frieder, laughing after last night's 120-103
blow-out over Iowa. "They'll be reminded of that."
Gee. I wonder who is going to be doing that reminding. And I won-
der if that reminding is going to take place today.
But just in case anybody thinks this team doesn't have any character,
check out some of the action that took place last night.
All year long, coaches and fans alike have been talking about what a
great year Iowa guard B.J. Armstrong, from Birmingham Brother Rice,
is having. Well. He is.
HE'S ONLY THE LEADER of an Iowa team that has played
great basketball all season. He's only averaging 19 points a game. And
he's only the best point guard in the conference, according to Indiana
coach Bob Knight.
Okay. Last night Gary Grant scored 29 points, put on a three-point
shot clinic, dished out nine assists, and allowed Armstrong only 15
points in second-half garbage time. So it was Grant's turn to say, "I
told you so," right?
Yes.
He didn't.
Grant refused to say he had proven he was superior to Armstrong. "I
don't get much into that," he said. "It's people's opinions. I don't care
if I'm ranked in the top five point guards in the country."
A reporter asked, "Who got the best of whom?" The reporter meant
between Grant and Armstrong.
"Our team got the best of their team tonight," said Grant.

stifled their offense (seven-of-26
shooting), and the Wolverines broke
their press quite easily.
"The press did not bother us,"
said Frieder. "We got one easy shot
after another."
Rumeal Robinson benifited from
Iowa's 25 turnovers, scoring 18
points, several on transition baskets.

He also dished out 11 assists.
"We just couldn't get organized in
the first half," Davis said. "They just
outquicked us. They beat us in every
possible way."
By the time the second half
started, Iowa found itself trailing,
61-26. A futile 77-point second half
- a team record - but it never got
closer than the 17-point deficit at the
game's end.
Earlier in the half, the Hawkeyes
ran off 15-2 and 13-4 spurts, but the

Wolverines countered to hold their
comfortable lead.
Center Ed Horton led the
Hawkeyes with 22 points. Bill Jones
added 16.
Flint native Roy Marble was not
a factor, scoring only eight points.
He fouled with 11:18 left in the
game.
The Michigan win upped
Frieder's record to 7-1 against Iowa
at home. He has not lost since his
first year in 1981.
