Wolverine cagers tangle with
Spartans for state supremacy
By GREG MOLZON
Bill Frieder said it and Indiana's
Bob Knight proved him right.
Before Michigan b e a t
Northwestern last week in its Big
Ten opener, Frieder guaranteed that
Northwestern would win four or five
home games, including a victory or
two over the top teams in the
The Wolverines left Evanston
unscathed, but Knight's defending
national champion squad was not as
lucky as they were upset by the
Wildcats earlier this week.
Now, the Michigan head coach has
issued another warning about
tonight's intrastate game between the
Wolverines and Michigan State at
Jenison Field House (8 p.m. on
Channel 62). "Don't think Michigan
State is going to go through this
season without beating anyone at
Jenison," Frieder said. "We just hope
that, like at Northwestern, we can
somehow get in there and (get) out
with a victory."
TO REMIND his team that
there are no easy wins in the Big
Ten, Frieder has pointed out the
upset of Indiana and the difficulty of
winning at Michigan State, where
the Wolverines have lost five of the
last seven years under Frieder.
The Spartans won last season's
game at Jenison, 91-80, and even
though they have one of their worst
teams in recent years, Frieder warns
that a win will not be easy. "I know
what everyone's saying. That we
have all the talent, they're
struggling, and all that nonsense, but
I'm going to tell you what- this is
Michigan- Michigan State," Frieder
said. "Teams worse than Michigan
State is right now, have beaten better
teams than Michigan is right now."
Michigan State (5-7 overall, 0-2
Big Ten) has lost six of its last seven
games and is now looking at a
difficult six-day stretch of hosting
Michigan and Indiana, before
traveling to Purdue.
"We're trying to face these games
where it's not how good you are, it's
how good you play," head coach Jud
EVEN WITH a series of tough
games coming up, the Michigan
game is the one the Spartans are
keying on. Heathcote has spent all
this week preparing for the
Wolverines (13-1 overall, 2-0 Big
Ten) and won't think about Indiana
"We try to get emotionally up for
the Michigan game. We make that
the big game," Heathcote said.
To have a chance against the
Wolverines, Heathcote said his team
will have to slow down the tempo
and keep the score in the 60s or
lower. For that to happen, he will
need a big game from each of his
Carlton Valentine has led the
Spartan scorers this year with 14.8
points per game, but he is the only
player scoring in double figures. The
6-5, senior forward is shooting 59
percent from the field and grabbing
5.5 rebounds per game.
CENTER George Papadakos is a
seven-footer who doesn't scare
anyone, but does give the Spartans
some size inside. He is averaging 9.5
points and six rebounds per game.
The other probable starters are Ken
Redfield at forward, and Steve Smith
and Ed Wright at guards.
Spartan football receiver Andre
Rison, who recently joined the
basketball squad, will also see
playing time. The 5-10 point guard
was a starter on the Flint
Northwestern team that Wolverine
Glen Rice led to two straight state
championships. Rison will add
quickness and good ballhandling
skills to the Spartan backcourt.
Kirk Manns, Bobby Worthington,
and Jesse Hall are likely to see
significant playing time as well.
While the Wolverines know they
have the edge in talent, no one is
about to guarantee a win, a ia
Antoine Joubert two years ago. "We
can't have them beating us anymore.
Every year we have the most talent,
but go down there and lose some
way," Michigan guard Gary Grant
said. "We know that, so we're just
going to work hard and try to break
the jinx down there."
And for anyone willing to listen,
Frieder said that Heathcote will have
the Spartans playing up to what they
are capable. "Their very best game
last year, the year before, and every
other damn year is against Michigan
in Jenison. And they'll play their
butts off (tonight)."
Michigan teammates Glen Rice (41) and Mike Griffin (20) battle for a loose ball during last year's game
against Michigan State. The Wolverines, who split last year's series with the Spartans, will be looking for their
13th straight win tonight in East Lansing.
