Keith Smart(s) as
Jones, Edwards start

By ADAM SCHEFTER
After Michigan marched into
Bloomington in January and dealt
Bob Knight and his big belly an-
other difficult game to stomach,ev-
eryone asked what was wrong with
Indiana.
Bill Frieder assured the college
basketball community that nothing
was wrong with the Hoosiers. They
have a great basketball team, great
tJlent, and Knight will get it to-
gether, he warned. Known for exag-
gerating the truth from time to time,
no one took Frieder's comments
very seriously.
Sure enough, Indiana has won its
last five games.
"Bob has proven me right,"
Frieder said. "They've done an out-
standing job. This is a much, much
better Indiana team than when we
played them."
One of the main reasons for that
is the play of first-year guards Jay
Edwards and Lyndon Jones. The two
players, who as Marion High School
teammates led Marion to three con-
secutive Indiana state champi-
onships, have started together during

the four-game win streak.
The pair's play has put last
March's hero, Keith Smart, in a box
seat with a perfect view to watch all
the action.
Edwards has averaged 20 points
while totalling 19 assists in the four
games. He keyed a comeback against
Illinois, scoring 24 points in the
second half, when he was four of
four from three-point land.
Jones has averaged 11 points over
the stretch, dishing out seven assists
against both Illinois and Purdue.
But Michigan has more on its
hands than the high school sweet-
hearts. They have a 22-Garrett gem
in the middle. The 6-10 senior is the
key to the Hoosier offense. Over the
last four games, Garrett has averaged
23 points and 10 rebounds. He has
also blocked 65 shots this season.
Michigan has had problems with
its inside defense this season and
Garrett only means more, especially
with Edwards and Jones extending
defenses with their outside shooting.
"The fact that Edwards is such a
threat out there really helps their in-
side players," said Frieder.

Grant scores
28 in 'M'win
MADISON (AP) - Gary Grant scored 28 points
and Glen Rice added 19 last night to lead the No. 12
Wolverines to an 80-67 victory over Wisconsin.
Grant had 10 of Michigan's first 18 points in the
second half as the Wolverines (8-2 Big Ten, 19-4.over-
all) opened a 54-42 lead with 11:43 left. Rice made a
three-pointer to put Michigan ahead, 59-46.
Grant and Rice were the Big Ten's leading scorers
entering the game.
Wisconsin played without its top inside player,
Danny Jones, who was out with a sprained ankle. Trent
Jackson led Wisconsin with 27 points but only one
other Badger scored in double figures, center Daren
Schubring with 11.
The Badgers closed to 24-21 on Patrick Thompkins'
15-foot jumper before Grant stole the ball from Wis-
consin's Tim Locum underneath and drove the length
of the floor for a lay-up. Mike Griffin made two free
throws and Terry Mills then scored off a rebound.
The Wolverines shot 47 percent from the floor in
the first half while the Badgers made 41 percent.
Illini pummel Gophers
CHAMPAIGN (AP) - Nick Anderson scored 18
points last night to lead Illinois to an 86-50 win over
Minnesota.
The win snapped a four-game Illinois losing streak
and moved coach Lou Henson into position as the
21 st-winningest coach in college basketball. Henson,
who has a career record of 496-291, is sixth among ac-
tive coaches.

SPORTS OF THE DAILY:
Track team to host'Red' Simmons invite

By KRISTIN MATTHEWS
Kenneth "Red" Simmons, the
"founding father" of Michigan's
women's track and field, will be
honored Saturday when the Wolver-
ines host the fifth annual Red Sim-
mons Invitational.
For his major contributions to
Michigan athletics, Simmons is the
only Honorary "M" Man as well as
"M" Woman at Michigan.
"Receiving these distinctions was
the high point of my life at the
University of Michigan," said Sim-
mons.
A former Olympian and national
track champion, Simmons success-
fully started the women's track pro-
gram in 1960. He became t h e
Wolverines' first women's track

coach in 1977.
The 1988 Wolverines hope to
live up to his legacy this weekend.
Present head coach James Henry
considers Saturday's Invitational the
pre-Big Ten meet. "It is the last re-
ally competitive meet before our Big
Ten Ten Championship," he said.
That meet is two weeks away.
Michigan expects exceptional re-
sults from several athletes, including
sophomore Sonya Payne, who broke
her own school record last weekend
in the shot put and came within half
an inch of qualifying for the NCAA
finals. "Hopefully, this time Sonya
will make her qualifying throw,"
said assistant coach Sue Foster.
Shot putter Starry Hodges will
also attempt to make qualification

standards as will distance runner
Mindy Rowand in the 3000 meters.
One of Michigan's top distance
performers, Traci Babcock, has one
of the top times entered in the 5000
meters, as does senior Melissa
Thompson in the Invitational Mile.
Thompson qualified for the NCAA.
in her first year and expects to do so
once again tomorrow.
Women cagers aim
for Indiana, OSU
It's going to take more than snow
tires and sturdy car brush for the
Michigan women's basketball team
to fully accomplish its mission of
knocking off Indiana and Ohio State
on the road.
Although the Wolverines (4-5
Big Ten, 11-8 overall) have to be
pleased to have already won twice as
many Big Ten games as they did all
last year, the season will be some-
what of a. disappointment if they fail
to reach that elusive .500 mark.
To do that, the Wolverines have

to beat at least one of the teams they
lost to the first time around. At
Indiana tonight, they'll have a
chance to do just that. The Hoosiers
whipped Michigan, 77-59, at Crisler
in January, but the Wolverines,
having won three of their last four,
are surging.
Indiana, meanwhile is flounder-
ing. The Hoosiers, led by senior
Cindy Bumgarner (19.7 ppg in con-
ference) are 3-3 since then, only 9-10
for the season, and tied with Michi-
gan for fifth place.
Ohio State also beat Michigan in
their first meeting, but chances of a
Wolverine victory in Columbus on
Sunday are slim to none. The Buck-
eyes (7-2, 15-4) are currently ranked
No. 9 nationally.
Buckeye Nikita Lowry, of Detroit
Cass Tech, leads the team in confer-
ence scoring (19.7 ppg) and
rebounding.
OSU coach Nancy Darsch is 5-0
lifetime against Michigan.
