wrath

BLOOMINGTON - Bob Knight has eyes like a
video camera. They see everything, they never lie, and
they could convict a referee of every crime imaginable
on a basketball court.
A video camera does not make exceptions for human
error. When a subject makes a mistake, the camera tells
all.
Bob Knight is no different. Every game at Assembly
*Hall, the volatile Indiana coach convicts one victim for
committing some grievous error. Last night, the victim
was referee Ed Hightower.
Mr. Ed picked a fight with the wrong man in
Indiana's 89-74 victory over Michigan. He called a
reaching foul on star Hoosier Calbert Cheaney four
minutes into the game.
It seemed harmless enough. ESPN called an official
timeout. Mr. Ed walked back onto the court.
Then the optical fireworks began.
Eye contact with Knight is like being yelled at by
the average person. He knows how to grab one's atten-
tion. Knight stood through the entire timeout, glaring
relentlessly at Hightower. See HOOSIERS, Page 10

BLOOMINGTON - The full
effect of Michigan's 89-74 loss to
Indiana last night will certainly be
felt as the season continues. In a pos-
itive manner.
The Wolverines (2-3 in the Big
Ten, 10-4 overall) discovered added
depth that allowed them to play
with the No. 4 team in the country.
Despite rookie Juwan Howard's
second consecutive strong outing -
his best of the year with 26 points
and 10 rebounds - Indiana's pa-
tience and execution proved to be
too much. The Hoosiers (5-0, 14-2)
committed no turnovers in the first
half and only eight for the game.
If the Hoosiers couldn't get a
good shot, they would still find a
way to get to the free throw line.
Although they shot 66 percent from
the line, compared to Michigan's 88
percent, they had 50 attempts to
only 16 for the Wolverines.
Down 47-35 at halftime, the
Wolverines opened the second half
by asserting their dominance inside.

Howard and Chris Webber scored
all of Michigan's points during a
16-6 run.
Howard's 10 in the surge in-
cluded two baskets off the offensive
glass, while Webber's half-dozen
included two banked free throws.
"I thought Michigan really
played excellent inside offense,"
Indiana coach Bob Knight said.
"They got us jammed in there and
did a really good job. All their re-
bound baskets were just a good job
of getting us in tight, going up and
getting the ball, and putting it back
in."
With the score 53-51, Indiana be-
gan laying off Michigan's guards,
not allowing them to enter the ball
to Howard and Webber in the post.
The Wolverines' outside shooting
was not on, and Indiana went on a
16-6 run of its own to push the lead
back up to 12 with 8:49.
Michigan began to find its out-
side shooting, hitting three consecu-

tive 3-pointers (two by Michael
Talley and one by Rob Pelinka) to
stay in the game. This forced Indiana
to challenge Michigan's guards once
again, and Howard went back to
work. He sandwiched two free
throws and a three-point play
around a Jalen Rose three to bring
Michigan within three at 73-70
with under five minutes left.
"I have the attitude that I want
to win all the time, that's the main
thing," Howard said.
But the Wolverines could get no
closer, as Indiana scored a quick six
in a row and continued to make trips
to the foul line to keep the game out
of reach.
Howard had 17 points and seven
rebounds in the second half, as
Michigan stayed in the game despite
leading scorer Rose's off night.
Rose's first basket of the game was
the 3-pointer, which came with 5:57
left in the game.
It was Indiana's fifth victory in
13 days.

WHAT'S
HAPPENING

by Bernadette Ramsey
New faces helped the Michigan
*women's track team get out of the
blocks quickly this weekend with
victories over defending Big Ten
Champion Indiana and Kentucky.
Three rookies helped the Wolver-
ines edge out the Hoosiers, 58-57,
and roll over the Wildcats, 95-31. In
triangular scoring, the final scores
were Michigan 59, Indiana 57, Ken-
tucky 21.
Frosh Karen Harvey posted a ca-
*eer and personal best time of 9:50.6
in the 3000 meter. The Lady
Wolverine Award for outstanding
performance went to first-year stu-
dent Bryn Girch in field and transfer
student Kristi Westerby in track.
Girch won the triple jump with a
distance of 31 feet 7 1/2 inches and

finished fourth in the high jump
with a jump of 5-2 1/2. Westerby
won the 600 meter with a time of
1:34.6, one second off the Michigan
record.
"Everyone helped out and this
was really a team win," Wolverine
coach James Henry said. "Everyone
who scored a point made a differ-
ence, not just the winners. We all
feel good about beating the defend-
ing Big Ten champs on there own
track. We are very enthusiastic
about the future. We had a good
meet and got off to a good start."
Harvey expected a better show-
ing from Kentucky and felt Indiana
is not as deep as they have been in re-
cent years.
"We have a large team with both

depth and quality," Henry said.
"Our depth should prove beneficial
in the conference championship."
On the men's side, the Wolver-
ines were victorious over Kentucky,
86-23, but fell prey to Big Ten fa-
vorites Indiana 92-30. In triangular
scoring, it was Indiana 97, Michigan
43, Kentucky 9.
"We didn't run especially
well," coach Jack Harvey said. "We
are weak in the sprints and we really
have to work on that area."
Michigan had a lot of third- and
fourth-place finishes but posted
only two first-place finishes. Pole
vaulter Brad Darr leaped to a
NCAA provisional qualifying
height of 17-3 3/4 inches. Greg

Duffy recorded a winning time of
1:20.09 in the 600 meter.
"This was the first meet so you
can't get too depressed, but we do
need better performances from some
of our lower-place finishers," Har-
vey said. "Indiana is good but we
should have scored more points."
Harvey believes the team is bet-
ter than it performed and feels he
will see improvement as the season
progresses.
The Wolverines hope to see that
improvement this week in their
quadrangular meet against Penn
State, Michigan State, and Ohio
State. The women will face Toledo
and Kent State.

Blue ski teams find summit in East

by Meg Beison

Realizing they had an extra day
before the start of classes, the
Michigan men's and women's ski
teams skipped a trip to northern
Michigan in favor of a weekend
jaunt to New Hampshire. The
Wolverines competed against sev-
eral eastern teams, including Boston
University, Babson College, and
*Green Mountain University.
The Michigan women's team
overcame the freezing weather con-
ditions, a wind chill of 15 to 20 de-
grees below zero, and extremely icy
slopes to capture first place overall.
Lisa Witty was the top finisher
for the Wolverines with a fourth-
place finish in the slalom. Sara
MacKeigan and Kelly Copeland fin-

ished sixth and eighth, respectively.
Amy Portenga raced to a fifth-place
finish in the giant slalom, followed
closely by Kelly Copeland and Lisa
Witty with sixth- and eighth-place
finishes.
"The trip to New Hampshire
was very beneficial. It gave us a
chance to see how we stacked up
against teams from other regions,"
Copeland said. "We encountered
longer runs and many different con-
ditions. The weekend was a lot of
fun, and we were really excited to
win."
The change of environment
brought the men skiers several
weekend hardships. As if arctic con-
ditions were not shocking enough,
they also had to deal with a foreign

set of rules. In Michigan, teams race
five skiers and take the three best
times, whereas most Eastern teams
race 10 skiers and take the top five
times. Therefore, when two
Michigan skiers fell, they were
forced to use those low times any-
way.
Tim Sattelmeier was the top fin-
isher for the men with a 10th-place
finish in the slalom. Kevin Gietzen
and Mike Johnson came in 23rd and
28th respectively. Sattelmeier led
the Wolverine pack again in the gi-
ant slalom with a fifth-place finish
while Kevin Gietzen tallied a sev-
enth-place finish. Chris Holmes
rounded out the Wolverine finish-
ers.
