year, Michigan finished a disappoint-
ing seventh in the Big Ten, and Henry,
three-time conference Coach of the
Year, is clearly not used to losing.

worst team in the Big Ten. If we don't
change our work ethic, we'll continue

visitor-friendly. The Hoosier fans stuff
~smammoth confines .- 17,169
owed up Tuesday -and nearly all of
them wear red. The Wolverines' dark
blue uniforms were striking, standing
out as they did against the sea of crim-
son - about the only things there not
painted red.
The fans are raucous - and that's
reflected in the Hoosiers' home court
dominance. There was no way they
were going to let Michigan beat them
o years in a row at their place.
W There are few college teams that
could have beaten Indiana Tuesday
Might. Certainly no team in the Big Ten
could. The Hoosiers shot 74.1 percent
in the second half. When three of every
four shots a team takes go in, that team
should not lose.
Blame the Wolverines for leaving
guard Neil Reed open a little too much
but whd thought he would shoot 8-
1I from behind the arc? Besides,
'mhigan couldn't exactly cover Reed
at the expense of leaving 6-foot-8 for-
ward Brian Evans open. Evans' game
was his best as a Hoosier, according to
Knight; the sharp-shooting seniornailed
three of his four 3-point attempts, he
grabbed eight rebounds, he dished 11
assists, and hit tough, guarded shots
inside and out.
And the Todd Lindeman who showed
Tuesday was not the one who was
*sr oyed by Michigan State's not-so-
vaunted frontline. With Baston and
Taylor in early foul trouble, Lindeman
played what Michigan coach Steve
Fisher termed a "career game;" he was,
rankly, a different, tougher player.
'It was more them playing well than
us not playing well," Fisher said, and he
wis right: Indiana just got up on the
nigt side of the bed for the first time
season.
Louis Bullock is already a force in
I3e Big Ten. Seven threes in 11 at-
tempts? The Indiana fans - some of
the most knowledgable in the country
couldn't figure out why he wasn't
scoring 27 points every game. Bullock
aid he looked for shots more aggres-
jvely Tuesday, but 64 percent from the
apoint arc -while a rate unreachable
fera whole season-is not out ofreach
inany one game for the freshman, who
tmade nearly half his bombs this
on"
Buf tllock is among the Big Ten's two
ottee most dangerous 3-point threats

T with him firing outside, the Wolver-
ines will usually get more out of their
big men than they did Tuesday.
So the Indiana game was an anomaly,
a freak amazing game from Knight's
squad. It's no reason for the Wolverines
to panic, despite their two conference
ses. The Big Ten champion will al-
most surely have three or more losses.
Lose Sunday at Iowa, however, and
the Wolverines can start panicking.

Wolverines take on state's best
in Michigan Intercollegiate

By Mark Snyder
Daily Sports Writer
It is certain a team from the Wolverine
statewill winthisweekend'smen's Michi-
gan Intercollegiate track meet - it just
may not be the Wolverines.
Saturday, Michigan will be hosting all
of the Division I schools in the state for
the meet. Competing will be Michigan,
Michigan State, Eastern Michigan, Cen-
tral Michigan, Western Michigan and the
University of Detroit.
The competition will be a step up from
what the Wolverines faced last weekend
at the Red Simmons Invitational - but
they are still expected to come away with
a strong showing.
"Eastern has a pretty decent team,"
coach Jack Harvey said. "And Michigan
State has an improved (squad)."
Last year, at the same meet, Michigan
was victorious with Eastern Michigan
coming in second.

"Based upon what I've seen this year,
the rankings will be very similar," Harvey
added.
This season's team has a number of
newcomers looking to contribute, John
Mortimer, a freshman, will run the 3,000-
meter race. Last week at the Simmons,
Mortimer ran on the victorious distance
medley relay.
Another piece added to the Wolverine
puzzle will be transfer Brian Thiesen.
Thiesen made his presence felt almost
immediately as he finished second in the
55-meterhurdlesatthe Simmons. Ateam
player, he is looking forward to the inter-
state meet.
"(Thiesen's) got two years of eligibil-
ity left, and he's running really well for
us," Harvey said.
Freshman Todd Snyder will pitch in by
running the 5,000-meter event Saturday,
but the coach's focus remains on those
with experience.

"Most of the impact is going to come
from the upperclassmen," he said. "I think
it will be a while before we see something
spectacular (from the freshmen.)"
All-everything Kevin Sullivan will re-
turn this weekend to run the mile afteria
week off.
High jumper Jon Royce will look to
improve hisjump of 7-foot-2, which quali-
fied on a preliminary basis forthe NCAA
Indoor Championships. To become an
automatic qualifier, Royce will attempt to
clear the bar two inches higher.
"(Royce's) about where we'd like him
this time of year," Harvey said.
Harvey is optimistic about where his
team is headed and how the Wolverines
will fare in the coming meets.
"We've come off a long Christmas
break and we're just now rounding into
shape. I think you'll see some improve-
ments in performances this week and in
the weeks to come," he said.

The Wolverines host the Michigan Intercolleglates Saturday.
Men's gymnastics looks for
revenge against WeStern

By Chaim Hyman
Daily Sports Writer
The Michigan men's gymnastics team
has a new focus. After coming in at the
bottom of last week's Windy City Invi-
tational at Illinois-Chicago, the Wol-
verines hope to avenge the loss by beat-
ing each of the teams that finished ahead
of them - one at a time.
Michigan will get its first crack at
one of those teams this Saturday when
they face off in a dual meet at Western
Michigan. This is only the Wolver-
ines' second meet of the regular sea-
son, but expectations are high despite
the fact that the Broncos placed ahead
of them by more than eight points last
week. Michigan finished with a team
score of 197.55, behind the Broncos'
205.8.
"We were very disappointed with
finishing at the bottom of the pack last
week," Michigan coach Bob Darden
said. "Western was a part of that com-
petition, and we are training hard for
them."
Practice this week has been intense.

To improve quickly enough to have an
impact on the strong Western squad,
Michigan is training with an emphasis
on areas in which it has done poorly.
"From a coaching perspective, I'd
like to see the team do better for them-
selves," Darden said. "We have a fairly
substantial margin to make up with
Western, but we're looking at details
and trying to fine-tune those."
Despite the disappointing start,
Darden said he believes that last week's
score provides his team with a training
goal.
"We always look to improve on our
prior performance," Darden said. "This
weekend we're going to build on that
score."
The gymnasts are not the only mem-
bers of the Michigan squad who will be
working hard. Coaching efforts are be-
ing focused on getting the team ready
for this weekend's meet as well.
"I have tremendous confidence in
this team, and what (the coaches) have
to do is instill confidence in the team,"
Darden said.
