"He was emotional today,"
Frieder said. "He was cheerleading
and officiating. If people want to say
something to me about that, hey, if
Gary Grant can help us get the crowd
in the game then he's got to do that,
too. He's doing every other damn
thing so there's nothing wrong with
that too.".
ANOTHER guy who did a lot
was Glen Rice. The 6-7 forward
often had a height advantage on his
opponent and capitalized on the
mismatch by hitting for 22 points.
He added nine rebounds as well.
Loy Vaught, who recently lost
his starting job to Mark Hughes,
also played a hearty game. Coming
off his missed shot against Purdue
and a lackluster performance against
Wisconsin, Vaught showed why he
once started in the front court.
He tallied 15 points on 7-of-8
shooting, grabbed 11 rebounds, and
helped bottle up Indiana's big scor-
ing threat, Dean Garrett. Vaught was.
relieved by his performance, to say
the least.
"I was so happy," Vaught said. "I
really needed that game to get my
confidence back up. I was determined
to take it up strong, shoot, and fol-
low through. Everything worked out
for me."
Everything also worked out for
Indiana's first-year guard Jay Ed-
wards. The Marion, Ind., native kept
the Hoosiers in the game making all
the Indiana diehards forget Steve Al-
ford. Edwards hit six-of-nine from
beyond the 19-9 stripe.
WHEN INDIANA trailed 28-
15 in the first half, Edwards scored

cut the lead to two at the half.
Having played against him this past
summer at the U.S. Olympic
Festival, guard Rumeal Robinson
was well aware that Edwards could
ruin Frieder's fun.
"It was a great performance by
Edwards," Robinson said admiringly.
"He can shoot. If there is one thing

that he can do it's shoot."
At the press conference after the
game, Knight did some shooting of
his own, opening up fire on every-
one within reach. When Knight
walked into the room, a television
cameraman asked him if he could
please sit down, obviously so
Knight could be easily filmed.

Knight replied, "No, I don't want to
sit down. I've been sitting down all
day. You mind if I stand?"
These sort of replies filled his
post game remarks. It did not appear
as if Knight was enjoying his
Valentines Day. It's doubtful it was
because he didn't get any victories
from his team.

Edwards rises above
Granti i M' victory

By SCOTT SHAFFER
It's a rare game when Gary Grant
gets outscored by the player he is
assigned to guard.
But only once in a blue moon
does the senior guard have to step
aside to let someone else guard his
man on defense.
On Saturday, a blue moon shone
over Ann Arbor.
The man responsible for this oc-
currence was Indiana's Jay Edwards,
who lit up Crisler Arena for 29
points, five more than Grant's total.
EDWARDS' offensive exploits
prompted Michigan coach Bill
Frieder to take Grant off the Indiana
guard, and assign the unenviable
chore of guarding him to Rumeal
Robinson. The switch was made
with about 14 minutes left in the
game.
Edward's performance didn't save.
the Hoosiers from a 20-point loss,
but he drew nothing but praise for
his performance.
The first-year guard scored 18 in
the opening half, helping to trim
Michigan's 15-point lead down to
two at halftime. "Boy what a great
player he is. He really hurt us in the
first half and almost single-handedly
brought them back," said Frieder.
The combination of Edward's off-
ball movement and his accuracy

from three point range (six-for-nine)
proved too much for Grant to stop.
In all fairness to Grant, though,
Indiana was setting multiple picks
and screens in an attempt to get the
6-3 Edwards open. "I think Gary got
a little tired. He was getting screened
and you get tired banging in to those
screens all the time," said Frieder.
ROBINSON had a little more
success than Grant, but it was no
easy task. "Those were some picks
they set. When (the other team) sets
three picks for one guy, (guarding
him) becomes a hard job," Robinson
said.
And setting picks and screens is
something that Indiana does best.
One target of the Hoosier's screens
was forward Mark Hughes. "Between
(Indiana) and Purdue, they are the
best in the Big Ten at setting screens
and getting people open," said
Hughes.
For years, the Hoosiers picked
and screened for Steve Alford. Now
it is Edward's turn.
If his shot selection is any
indication, Edwards isn't too shy
about making the most of his
opportunities. He took nearly one-
third of Indiana's shots, connecting
on 10 of 21 attempts.k .w ~
This followed a week in which he
was named Big Ten Player-of-the-

Rush Delivery

Calm Knight during game ...
stormy Knight after game

Say good Knight, Bob.
Not on this night.
The Indiana coach was less than pleased after
Michigan played a nearly flawless second half of
basketball to beat his Hoosiers - the defending
national champions - for the second time this
season.
During the game, he was on his best
behavior. There were no long temper tantrums,
no thrown chairs, no thrown players. The only
time Knight even touched Steve (Coach tripped
me in the) Eyl was while slapping him on the
behind for encouragement.
KNIGHT looked similarly calm when he
entered the press conference after the game. But
he soon showed the side of his personality for
which he is usually hated, sometimes revered,
and always famous.
Knight walked into the press room, and the
members of the media scurried around to prepare
their pens, tape recorders, and cameras.
In the Crisler Arena press room, the media
form a semicircle, and the person being
interviewed usually sits in the center. Knight
advanced to the table, and, without sitting down,
started to speak.
Knight soon was interrupted by one of the
media. Somehow Knight's remaining standing

disrupted the media's ability to catch him on
camera, and Knight was asked to sit down.
WRONG MOVE.
Knight sneered at the supplicant as if a great
cultural faux pas had been committed. One sensed
that the media soon would have to pardon
Knight's French.
Right guess, more or less.
"I've been sitting all day," Knight said
contemptuously. "You mind if I stand?"
KNIGHT was sore, and the feeling wasn't
just in his butt.
Next question, please.
A press person asked Knight how Michigan
had been able to run off 15 straight field goals
without a miss at one point during the second
half. Was it the Wolverines' strong offense? Had
the Hoosiers lagged defensively?
"I think it was divine intervention," he said,
straight-faced.
Another reporter asked if Gary Grant's dancing
directly in front of the Indiana bench bothered
Knight, Grant's Saturday-night moves came
immediately after he threw a full-court pass to

Glen Rice for a tomahawk jam that made the
score 63-48 in favor of Michigan.
Rumeal Robinson had dunked on the previous
play, and the Wolverines sensed the kill. Grant
seemed to be making sure that everyone in the
house - including Knight - knew the game
was over.
Knight claimed he wasn't bothered. "I was
watching the ball game," he said.
THE FINAL confrontation came when
someone asked Knight how Michigan had been
able to pick up so many easy transition baskets.
"You tell me," Knight said. "You watched the
goddamned game." He went on to berate the
reporter, telling him he should be able to answer
"such an obvious" question himself.
The reporter retorted that his own opinion
didn't matter, that it was Knight's opinion that
mattered because Knight knew more about
basketball.
"Do I?" Knight said sarcastically. "Sometimes
I don't think I do."
Maybe on this night, Knight half believed
that statement.
