KNIGHT'S STRUGGLING HOOSIERS COME TO CRISLER
Red and White next up for Blue
Friday and Saturday, 7:30 p.m.
Yost Ice Arena
Wrestlers face two
of nation's finest
by Mike Gill
Daily, Basketball Writer
One important aspect which
should not be overlooked in to-
night's Indiana-Michigan basketball
game (8:00, Crisler Arena) is what
color sweater Indiana coach Bobby
Knight will wear.
It's a tough decision. When Indi-
ana came back from a 20-point
deficit to defeat the Wolverines 69-
67 in Bloomington last month,
Knight debuted a white crew neck.
Recently, though, as his team
slipped to sixth place in the Big Ten
with a 4-5 record (14-5 overall)
Knight has been back to the bright
red. As to which matches his com-
plexion, it is a toss-up. Will Knight
try to rekindle the magic of his
white-led comeback, or stick to his
traditional red? Oddsmakers give red
the nod, 2-1.
Knight's probable response to
this made-up controversy would read:
For Michigan coach Steve Fish-
er, his biggest worry is not about
sweaters, but continuing to keep his
team as close to conference-leading
Purdue without the services of Sean
Higgins, who is out another two-
three weeks with a stress fracture to
his left foot.
He also has to contend with
stopping the likes of Eric Anderson,
who ate the Wolverines (6-3; 16-4)
up in January with 12 rebounds and
17 points, and has continued to do
so to Big Ten opponents.
Anderson is eighth in the confer-
ence scoring race, averaging 18.6
points per game, and among the
leaders in rebounds, averaging 6.6
per contest. He's also fifth in the
conference in free throw shooting,
hitting nearly 80 percent of his
chances from the line (51-64). Con-
sidering the foul trouble Anderson
put Loy Vaught and Terry Mills in
last time the teams met, he could be
spending significant time at the
The sophomore Anderson is part
of the Hoosiers' outstanding front-
court on a team which constantly is
juggling its starting line-up. Knight
has used 14 different starting lineups
in 19 games, but the constantly
changing rotation does not present a
problem for Fisher in developing a

doesn't make it too awfully difficult.
had been averaging 16.9 points
along with 4.6 rebounds per contest.
"It's an important game for both
teams," Fisher said. "They're play-
ing much better than they were
earlier in the season even though
they've lost five times. Their young
players are gaining experience. We
have to protect our home turf."
Demetrius Calip will remain part
of the backcourt tandem as he was in
Wisconsin, while Mike Griffin will
play forward for the injured Higgins.
Michael Talley, who has been batt-
ling strep throat and did not accom-
pany the team for the trip to Wis-
consin, practiced with the team
Tuesday for the first time since the
Michigan State game.
Fisher said that he will be more
willing to dig deeper into his bench
after steady performances were turned
in against the Badgers by reserves
Chris Seter and Tony Tolbert.
When asked if he planned any-
thing different from last month's
meeting, Fisher joked, "We hope if
we get a 20 point lead we hold on.
And I hope we get a 20 point lead."
Wonder if he hopes Knight wears
red or white?

It's homecoming weekend for
Michigan wrestling coach Dale
His Wolverine squad pays a visit
to Ames, Iowa, tonight to square
off against Bahr's alma mater, Iowa

nationally, promise to provide the
Wolverines (6-2 in dual meets, No.
8 in the country) with stiff com-
One Wolverine who will be
tested is 158-pounder Sam Amine.
Amine, 5th in the nation, will put
his 6-0-1 dual meet record on the
line against Steve Hamilton, who
is ranked second.
"He's a real tough guy," Amine
said. "(The match) will give me a
good idea of where I stand."
Iowa State has made some recent
lineup changes with Gary McCall
and Dan Knight dropping down a
class to 118 and 126, respectively.
"We think (the change) gives us
a real advantage in the lower weight
classes," Iowa State coach Jim
If past meets are any indication,
wrestling aficionados at the Hilton
Coliseum will certainly get their
money's worth. The last time the
teams met in Ames, the Cyclones
came away with a 19-15 victory.
Michigan avenged the loss last year
in Ann Arbor, 23-11.
"Our matches with them are
always real tight," Bahr said. "It
generally comes down to whether
some of the younger guys can pull

Love affair remains between golfer and wife despite firing
HONOLULU, (AP) - Long-
term relationships between golfers
and caddies are rare on the PGA
Tour. Caddies who make the tour
constantly grouse about being cut
loose. Some golfers fire more often
Brian Tennyson's wife, Jeanne,
used to caddy for her husband. Until
he fired her. She's still Mrs.
Tennyson and is with her husband
this week at the Hawaiian Open.
The firing took place during the
1987 U.S. Open, Brian's rookie year
on the PGA Tour. He laughed when
he told the story. "She's glaring at
me. She says, 'you're choking;
you're choking.' So I fired her.
"It was just a case of being too
close, of her knowing what's going
on in my mind and me knowing
what's going on in hers," Tennyson
Jeanne also occasionally caddied
for Tennyson in those struggling
years before he qualified for the PGA
Tour. He made three unsuccessful
tries at the qualifying school before
gaining his playing rights in 1987.
He played 10 tournaments on the
Asian your in 1987 and won the
Indian and Phillipine Opens.
