from the field this season, but their
opponents didn't find things any
easier, averaging just over 43
percent and 68.6 points per game.
"I know he's a disciplinarian,"
Chris Webber said when asked about
Temple and Chaney. "They practice
at 5:30, 6:30 in the morning. They
are very possession-conscious, slow-
ing the ball down."
But the Michigan players feel
they are ready for any type of game
at this point in the season.
"It's nothing too different from
some of the team's in the Big Ten,"
Freddie Hunter said. "Purdue plays
like that. We just have to be patient."
Patience was necessary yester-
day, also, as the players, coaches and
media waited at Crisler for Mich-
igan' s spot in the tournament to be
announced. The Southeast regional
brackets were the last to be shown
on the CBS telecast.
And they might have saved the
best for last, judging by Michigan's
counterparts headed to Atlanta, and
those travelling to the other
Southeast venue, Dayton, Ohio.

Eight of the regional's 16 teams
were ranked in the Associated Press
Top 25 poll a week ago - Ohio
State, Oklahoma State, Arizona, -
North Carolina, Alabama, Michigan,
St. John's and Tulane.
The second round games could
provide some marquee matchups.
Arizona and Michigan would be one
such collision, but the Wolverines
can't afford to look ahead.
"We're just gonna take it one
game at a time," Jimmy King said.
"Playing such a good team early on
could help us."
Fisher will once again employ the
preparation philosophy that helped
Michigan win its last three games of
the season.
"We want to break it down into
mini-tournaments," Fisher said. "We
want to play two games, we want to
win two games."
Michigan was joined by four
other Big Ten teams in making the
tournament - Ohio State, Indiana,
Michigan State and Iowa. Both West
Virginia and the Atlantic 10 tourna-
ment champs, Massachusetts, joined
Temple in getting bids.

Boilers deny Indiana Big Ten title, 61-59

Associated Press

Woody Austin scored 20 points and Matt
Waddell hit three free throws in the final 35 sec-
onds as Purdue beat No. 4 Indiana, 61-59, yes-
terday, costing the cold-shooting Hoosiers a
share of the Big Ten Conference championship.
The victory for Purdue (8-10 Big Ten, 16-14
overall) avenged a 41-point loss to Indiana earlier
this season in Bloomington and gave the Big Ten
title to Ohio State by one game.
The Hoosiers (14-4, 23-6) rallied from nine
points down in the first half and took a 10-point
lead midway through the final period, but their
frigid shooting let the Boilermakers take control
the rest of the way.
Purdue ran off 10 straight points on baskets

25 points from Christian Laettner.
Laettner, the tournament MVP who led six
players in double figures, helped the Blue Devils
take a title they hadn't won since 1988. Since
then, Duke had lost two tournament champi-
onship games, both to the Tar Heels. The latest
loss was a 96-74 decision in last year, which
Duke players called an embarrassment.
This time, the Blue Devils trailed by five
early in the first half, but their defense stymied a
hot start by North Carolina.
With the victory, Duke (28-2) earned an au-
tomatic bid to the NCAA tournament and a
chance for consecutive national championships, a
feat last accomplished by UCLA in 1972-73. The
Blue Devils start their bid at full strength as
1nIhhx T.r,and (rant K:, .....tnrn.frn.in-

season title by three games over Oklahoma State
and two other teams. This was their first tourna-
ment title since 1986 and their fast appearance in
the championship game since 1987.
The game was played with the same defensive
intensity found in the two regular-season meet-
ings. Oklahoma State won the first, 64-56, in
Stillwater, and Kansas won the rematch, 77-64,
in Lawrence.
The Jayhawks held the Cowboys (26-7) to 38
percent shooting. They hit 71 percent of their
shots in the second half after making just 32 per-
cent in the first.
Walters made a 3-pointer with 11:18 remain-
ing that tied the score at 38. The Jayhawks took
the lead for good, 46-44, on a shot inside by Eric
Paniev with 7.29 remainino
