* give Blue
a loss
'by Mike Gill
Daily Basketball Writer
BLOOMINGTON - A couple of
resounding themes popped up in
Michigan's 69-67 loss to the Indiana
Hoosiers - foul trouble inside and
losing a big lead.
This time, it doomed(them.
The Wolverines dropped a 20-
point lead and, unlike against Duke
and Seton Hall; were unable to
recover.
"That has been happening to us
all year long and it's a thing we're
going to have to take care of or it's
9 going to be a long season," Mich-
igan senior forward Loy Vaught said.
"It just seemed like in the second
half we came out real cold. I can't
determine what the reason is but
nonetheless, we all just couldn't
-shoot in the second half. They
.Y-caught fire and they got momenturn
-band it carried them the rest of the'
way."
Vaught fouled out with five
seconds remaining after scoring 14
points and notching 10 rebounds.
Center Terry Mills played only 12
minutes, scoring four points and
grabbing three rebounds. He fouled
-out with 6:13 to play.
"You can't have Terry Mills play
;the way he played," Michigan coach
"Steve Fisher said. "Eric Anderson
,was able to hang in and play with
foul trouble and our guys weren't."
0 Anderson scored 17 points,'
scooped 12 rebounds off the boards
and dominated over Mils. He had
three personal fouls at halftime.
"Anderson played perhaps the
best I've seen him play at the end,"
Hoosier coach Bobby Knight said.
"Defensively, he did a very good job
with four. minutes toplay."

Hoosiers are green,
but Blue loses poise
BLOOMINGTON - In the first half of Monday's Michigan-Indiana.
basketball game, it appeared that -the only thing to stay around for were
the antics taking place on the Indiana bench.
The Wolverines were embarrassing the Hoosiers in their conference
home opener and Bobby Knight looked furious.
When Michigan's Sean Higgins rebounded a Loy Vaught miss and
made a put-back basket, Knight exploded. He believed that Higgins
pushed-off on an Indiana player to get the rebound.
He leaped off of the bench, with his arms flailing, and his voice
audible across the court. He continued to protest the call on Michigan's
next two trips down the floor. Then, during a Time out, he grabbed his
son, an assistant on the bench, to give the ref an example of what he
thought Higgins had done.
The whole crowd watched this time out episode and they laughed. This
was part of the show - Bobby Knight Theater.
Later in the half, first-year guard Greg Graham was called for
travelling. Knight berated his player all the way up the floor, pausing
only to chip in "that was a horses--- call" to the referee.
If he weren't Bobby Knight you would have felt sympathetic, or at
least empathic, towards him. The Hoosiers had already lost to Ohio State
in their conference opener and here they trailed a veteran Michigan team
by twenty points only ten minutes into the game.
But Bobby Knight doesn't ask for sympathy, even when eight of his
top ten players are frosh and sophomores. Indiana cut the 20-point
Michigan lead to 14 by the half. Equally importantly, Michigan's Loy
Vaught and Terry Mills had two fouls each. Eric Riley, the insurance
policy, went away with three.
When Vaught and Mills each picked up their third fouls very early in
the second half, it became a game.
Then Michigan unravelled. Vaught and Mills moped around with
incredulous looks of disbelief on their faces. As Mills appealed to the
referee for a pushing call, the Hoosiers' Calbert Cheaney connected on a
17-foot basket over Mills. Michigan led only 42-35.
When the Wolverines lost their morale, they lost their shooting touch.
At one point Michigan missed 11 shots in a row.
The streaky Higgins shivered, shooting an icy three-for-ten in the
second half.
Twice he put three point attempts off the backboard;missing the rim
completely. The final one splattered off the backboard to the right of the
rim with 13 seconds left as Michigan made a final effort to regain the
lead.
Michigan coach Steve Fisher admitted after the game "we lost our
poise." That's half the story. The other half is that the Hoosiers didn't
lose their's.
Either the Wolverines have yet to shake their chronic under-
achievement rap from the previous years, or the Big Tenhad better beware
of Indiana for the next few seasons.
Or both.

Bloomington Monday.

INDIANA
continued from page 1
Calbert Cheaney, who gave
Indiana its first lead of the night by
hitting both ends of a one-and-one
from the line, scored 18 points,
while Lyndon Jones had 20.
Jones scored 14 points in the
second half, including three key
shots. With 6:30 to play, he hit a
trey from the left baseline to cut the
Wolverines lead to 64-61 and with
only :40 left, he hit both ends of a
bonus situation to give the Hoosiers
their largest lead of the night at 69-
64.
* Said Vaught of the run: "It just
seemed we lost our concentration and
became lackadaisical. They sensed
that and took advantage of it and
came out with a win because of it."

While Michigan could not hit
any of its shots in the stretch,
Indiana found it was able to drive or
find the open man on the outside --
usually Jones. "They just made a
great run and we couldn't stop
them," Rumeal Robinson said.
The first half had everyone
spellbound, as the Wolverines built
a 33-13 lead with 9:29 left and
headed to the lockerroom at halftime
with a 40-26.advantage. Michigan
appeared to be the veteran team that
it is, while the young Hoosiers
looked like the Little Sisters of the
Poor might have caused them fits on
this night.
The Wolverines were able to
control the tempo of the game -
first, by running the break, then by
using the clock. Michigan scored 21

fast break points in the first half as
the Rumeal Robinson Show took
over. Robinson scored 16 of his"
game-high 21 points in the half,
including an electrifying dunk early-
on.
"I thought in the first half .
Michigan played extremely well on
both ends," Indiana coach Bobby
Knight said. The win was Knight's
228th in the Big Ten, tying him,
with Purdue's Piggy Lambert as the'
winningest coach in conference
history. "At the half, we told our
guys to play five minutes at a time,
and we thought by doing that, we.
would have a chance to be in the
game with 10 minutes to play."
No one jumped out any windows,
but Michigan's dive in that 7:23
stretch must have sent Fisher into a
Great Depression.
