Northwestern coach Bill Foster
was asked if the incident affected the o " tw
*officiating. "I think it was an
effective one, flat out," he said.
After the technical, Michigan
outscored the Wildcats, 14-6, over
the last seven minutes of the first'
half, including a three-pointer by
Vaught,; the first of his career, as
time ran out.
"You have to credit Michigan,"
Foster said. "They just had too much
ammo in their arsenal."
Wildcats' forward Walker
Lambiotte added: "I've seen a lot of
athletic teams, but Michigan is tops.
It seems that at every position
they've got the height, the size, and
the quickness."
With three games in five days
starting this Thursday against
Minnesota, Michigan coach Bill
Frieder was relieved by the
;performances of Mills, Vaught, and
Taylor. Mills was a force throughout
the game, scoring from inside and
"Terry Mills has been working
extremely hard," Frieder said. "His
weight is down, his attitude has been
good, and he's been very positive in
taking criticism."
Mills said: "I do whatever we
kneed. I can play inside and take it to
them, or if they need my passing I
could play on the outside."
Vaught was also a terror in the
paint, coming off the bench to grab
11 rebounds. "I think I could do more
if I played more," Vaught said. "But
it's Frieder's decision, and whatever
his motives are, I just have to go
,with them."
TAYLOR, playing in place of
''the suspended Sean Higgins, was
pleased with his first Big Ten start.
"I think I did well," Taylor said. "I'm
going to handle the ball this year and
next year. You have to have two
ball-handling guards out there come
Big Ten time.
"Coming off the bench was hard,"
Taylor added. "But when you start,
you know what's e pected of you by
experiencing it, and you make
changes while you're out there."
Although the Wolverines shot 59
percent from the fielo and
outrebounded Northwestern, 32-25, it
was their defense that was
particularly impressive.
"They played great defense,"
Lambiotte said after being held to 15
;points, five below. his season
average. "If I got by (Rice or
Griffin), I had somebody else waiting
for me.
Northwestern's second leading
scorer, Brian Schwabe, was held to
five points. He came in averaging
"We did a good job of containing
their people," Frieder said. "We
faltered in the second half, but we got
after our kids and they responded."

Towel tossin'
Coach Bill Frieder
demonstrated some nifty
towel tossing during
Saturday's victory over
Northwestern.tFrieder was
given a technical foul when
he jumped up and the towel
draped over his shoulder
brushed referee Ted Valentine.
Frieder said it was an
accident. Afterwards, Frieder
focused his temper on the
Wolverines and specifically
junior guard Rumeal
Robinsone(above) when
Northwestern climbed to
within 10 points midway
through the second half.
Robinson responded to some
more towel tossing by going
on ' to score 13 of his 16
points for the game. Frieder
saved many of his
compliments after the game
for Terry Mills (left), who
finished with 20 points and
played one of his best overall
games as a Wolverine.

Frieder receives mixed
mid-term report card
The "Bill Frieder Invitational Basketball Tourney," also known as the
"Cupcake Classic" officially ended Saturday with Michigan's 94-66
drubbing of a formidable Northwestern squad.
We won't know how the Classic prepared the Wolverines for what
promises to be an exciting Big Ten race until March, but here's a midseason
report card on Bill Frieder's coaching job.
-Scheduling - A: Or should I say A-A for Alaska-Anchorage, the
Division II school that showed up to play while the Wolverines were
deciding which Salt Lake City ice cream shop to visit after the game. I
wonder if Alaska-Anchorage will be invited to next year's Twinkiefest.
-Pampering - D: "Let me tell you about discipline," is one of Frieder's
favorite sayings. But Kirk Taylor and Demetrius Calip were too harshly
treated for not turning in homework early. Sean Higgins was relegated to the
bench for behavior similar to the great majority of college students. Does
every college student need a surrogate parent?
-Form - D: D also stands for dumb, which is what Frieder looked like
Saturday when his trademark towel "accidently slipped" from his shoulder
and landed near the feet of referee Ted Valentine. Frieder's second throw was
more accurate, making Valentine look like he was in the midst of receiving
a facial. A hint, Coach: Next time throw the towel from behind the sideline
instead of from a position nearer to the free-throw line than the water
bucket. You'll get more points that way.
With the way Frieder's arms were flailing, he either was practicing for
when his turn comes to conduct the University's symphonic orchestra, or
was working on his form for what he hopes will be the newest Olympic
sport - towel tossing.
Michigan Sports Information Director Bruce Madej said he plans to spend
all day today lobbying the members of the Olympic Committee. Even if the
sport is approved, though, Frieder would only occupy second place on the
team behind Bob Knight, whose chair-throwing several years ago remains
the standard.
Frieder claimed the towel went airborne after it slipped off his shoulder.
Maybe someone should put Velcro on the towel before Thursday's game
against Minnesota. During pregame introductions, Frieder might
spontaneously jump up and the towel might attack one of his players. I
wonder if trainer Dan Minert knows how to treat a towel-attack victim?
-Language - D: The D also stands for "damn it," which could be read
coming from Frieder's lips Saturday. With almost 12 minutes left to play,
Mills picked up his second personal foul of the game, and everyone this side
of the Grand Canyon could read what Frieder mouthed to his talented junior.
Maybe Frieder should adopt Northwestern coach Bill Foster's form of
complaining. Foster just paces back and forth on the bench every time an
official passes him by. But then again, Foster did not receive a technical
foul as a late Christmas present.
Or better yet, maybe Frieder, who Dick Vitale calls one of the great
moaners in the game today, ought to be strapped down into his seat with
tape over his mouth for the duration of the Wolverines' next game. Then we
wouldn't have to worry about flying washcloths and the like.
