for sweep over
By ADAM SCHEFTER
When Michigan journeyed off to
Northwestern, Michigan State, and
Wisconsin, Bill Frieder warned of
the dangers that were in store for the
Wolverines. Yet, each time that
threat was easily brushed aside.
Tonight, at 8:00, Michigan
makes its last road stop to one of
those schools situated in the bottom
of the Big Ten standings. Like the
rest of the Big Ten's dregs, Min-
nesota is one of those teams that
Frieder is fretful about once again.
"I've got the same kind of fears,"
said Frieder. "They are going to play
very aggressive. They are going to
play well against Michigan. Our
biggest thing is that we are a little
tired right now. I'm concerned about
a letdown. If we don't go up there
with the same enthusiasm and to-
getherness that we've had, then an
upset can happen."
YEAH, YEAH, YEAH. One
has to wonder what Frieder is con-
} stantly worrying about with his
team. In their last meeting, Michi-
gan buried the Gophers, 103-71, be-
hind Glen Rice's 40 points. More-
over, the Wolverines are just coming
off an impressive 92-72 belly bop-
ping against Bobby Knight.
The Wolverines didn't even miss
a shot in the second half from the
17-minute mark until there was 3:19
Grant wins Big eTen honor
CHICAGO (AP) - Michigan's Gary Grant was named Big Ten
player of the week yesterday after he totaled 52 points, 16 assists, 13
rebounds, and eight steals in two Wolverine victories.
On Thursday, Grant had 28 points, seven assists, six rebounds,
five steals, and a blocked shot in Michigan's 80-67 win at
In Saturday's 92-72 victory against Indiana, Grant had 24 points,
nine assists, seven rebounds, and three steals.
This is the second time this season Grant has been named the
conference's player of the week.
left. That was a Gary Grant miss
that Loy Vaught followed up for a
"After watching them play this
past weekend against Indiana, it's
pretty scary to think about playing
them," said Minnesota head coach
Clem Haskins. "You hear so much
about Grant and Rice, but they have
a lot of depth and just an outstanding
ball club. They have few weak-
The Gophers (9-12, 3-8) are re-
turning to the hardwood after a big
win of their own. Saturday, Min-
nesota trounced Northwestern, 82-
67. Leading the win were the two
players that Michigan will most
have to concern themselves with.
RICHARD COFFEY, an old
paratrooper in the U.S. Army, scored
15 points and grabbed 16 rebounds.
Coffey isn't afraid to use his wide
body in the paint to fly around and
bang heads with opponents.
"I said from day one that I think
all you writers will realize that Cof-
fey is one of the finest offensive re-
bounders in the game of basketball,"
said Haskins. "He doesn't get a lot
of publicity because we don't win a
lot of games. I would not want to
play against Richard Coffey."
Minnesota's other five-star gen-
eral, Detroit DePorres' Willie Bur-
ton, netted 13 points while compil-
ing 10 rebounds this past Saturday.
Burton was doubtful for that game
due to strained ligaments in his
knee. Although he has missed prac-
tice this week, he will play against
BURTON did not start the last
time these two teams met in Jan-
uary, but has since moved into the
starting lineup, averaging 15.5
points per game and 6.8 rebounds.
One player who has moved out of
the starting lineup for the Gophers is
last year's Proposition 48 victim
Melvin Newbern. The sophomore
guard has been lazy getting back on
defense and coach Haskins is doing
all he can to light a fire under New-
bern's seat on the bench. Starting in
the backcourt will be Ray Gaffney
(8.1 ppg), a good outside shooter,
and Kim Zurcher (6.1 ppg).
Haskins realizes that his team
will have to do more than a couple
of things to bring Frieder's worst
nightmare to life.
"For us to upset this ballclub, we
will have to play a perfect game. We
have to keep our turnovers under 10,
shoot 50 percent, control the tempo,
not give them the easy buckets, not
allow them to get second and third
shots, and do a good job of blocking
them off the boards."
Sounds like a lot. But not to
