The inside part of the Spartan
game also had a sub-par perfor-

Losing not a problem
for Jud wanna-bes
by Andy De Korte
Daily Basketball Writer
EAST LANSING - Did you ever have a crazy uncle? I do not mean
crazy like a fox, mind you. More along the lines of the uncle who walked
around your backyard in his underwear talking to plants. A man like that
was spotted at the Breslin Center last night.
In the main attraction, Michigan went into the Breslin Center and beat
the Michigan State basketball team, 73-69, in unspectacular fashion. Despit4
being a tightly-contested game, the fact that Michigan never trailed caused
the eyes to wander around the new-fangled fieldhouse.
Invariably, though, they ended up focused on the balding man in the
green jacket - MSU coach Jud Heathcote.
Whether Jud was beating his chest like a gorilla or pounding his fist into
his head, he was always entertaining.
The Spartan fans take their cue from him as well. His popularity on cam-
pus has spawned a fan club - the Jud Club - whose members don toupees
with thin white cotton strands and the trademark green sportcoat.
But Jud is just the seed from which madcap Spartan antics blossom. In
stark contrast to the mild Crisler fans, the Spartan faithful drowned its op-s
ponent in a constant state of noise. And keep in mind the Spartans never led.
The fans had a field day harassing the Fab Five, who made their return as
a starting unit last night.
Apparently fun, not ingenuity, is the focus in East Lansing. While the
pom-pon crew was double the size of Michigan's, and the 15-member dance
team thrust to AC /DC's "Shook me all Night Long," there were subtle dif-
ferences indicative of the meager MSU intellect.
In a cheer similar to one found in Ann Arbor, the MSU cheerleaders
_4r scrambled around on the Breslin Center floor, spelling out "M-S-U" instead
of the entire words. Presumably, Rob Pelinka might say, to minimize the
risk of a spelling error.
"I think sometimes people say that the students at Michigan State went
there because they didn't get into Michigan," he said prior to the game.
"(Michigan is) a better school academically and I think they have a little re-

One instance of Spartan creativity that towered above the Crisler Crazies
was the sign-making capability. The evening's top marks went to a
foursome dressed as drag queens.
In a response to Juwan Howard's game-ending hand gesture to the
Breslin faithful last season, the students' sign retorted, "Hey Juwan, I'nm
Luckily for Michigan coach Steve Fisher, it was his team that was having
all the fun on the court. A barrage of Chris Webber dunks ended the last
Spartan run and their last legitimate shot at victory. Despite shooting 16-for-
26 from the charity stripe, Fisher and his crew got the last laugh in that facet
as well, as the Spartans shot a woeful 10-for-23.
