Michigan's leading scorers, Bernard
Robinson and Blanchard, were a coim-
bined 1-of-9 in the first half for just six
points. Duke shut the Michigan scorers
down by denying them the ball in situa-
tions were they could get a good look at
the basket.
,They were in all of the passing lanes
and denied the wings very hard,"
Blanchard said. "We should have
baekscreenedi, but we couldn't do that
because we couldn't rotate the ball quick
euhThe opposite could not have been
more the ease for the Blue Devils. Not
one D~uke player who played in the first
half shot under 50 percent. As a team,
Duke was 21-of-32 (65.6 percent).
The Blue Devils scored 26 points off
of turnovers and 12 on the fastbreak in
the first half
BN,-t ', umBERS: Besides the 104-61
score. Michigan and Duke combined for
a number of interesting stats in the game;
0 Duke scored 104 points, a high for

the Blue Dev ils this season. The 43-point
difference also tied their 91-48 win over
Army as their largest margin of victory
for the season.
Michigan finished the first half with
just 1 8 points, a season-low. The
Wolverines' five-for-23 performance
from the field (21.7 percent) was also
their worst shooting half of the season.
® Michigan had 20 first-half
turnovers, the most for the Wolverines in
a half this season, against only 18 points.
Its 29 turnovers for the game were also its
most all year and the most for a Duke
opponent all year;
For the second time this season, six
Duke players scored in double digtits:
Shiane Battier (21), Jason Williams (20),
Mike Dunleavy (12), Nate James (12),
Casey Saunders (11l), C'arlos Boozer
(10). Battier's 21 were the fewest by a
Duke leading scorer this season.
Despite combining for 46 team
fouls, neither team had a player foul out
for the game.

SHOW NO MERCY
As the game turned ugly, the Cameron Crazies felt no pityfr h
young Wolverines. Here are the highlights of what Michigan bear
from t'oe toughest crowd in sports.

"Worst team ever"
Blatantly unabashed - that's why they are who they are.

paint on face after face while bare-
chested Blue Devils spelled their
hoof's name on a plump collection
of pale bellies.
The stage was set for the raucous,
outrageous display the Crazies hate
become so known for. The whole
spirited spectacle was made com-
plete not ,just by the fans them-
selves, but by the unique atmos-
phere of the shrine-like gymn the
Crazies call home.
In textured stone hauled 60 years
o from the Duke quarry in nearby
Hillsborough, Cameron's gray walls
belie the rich color of what sits just
inside.
11Complete in 1940 at a cost of
5400,000, Cameron was instantly
the pride of the Carolinas, as it was
honored as the largest arena in the
South. Originally sketched on the
'hack of a matchbook by longtime
Duke Athletic Director Eddie
~ameron, the first plans called for
unheard of 5,000 seats. When it
was completed, the sparkling arena
boasted nearly 9,000 seats with a
special stipulation that has remained
to this day: the 3,500 bleacher seats
can the floor w~ere to be reserved for
students.-
Today, through a narrow lobby fit
for a high school gymnasium, small
plaques honor All-Americans,
t tional players of the year and sim-
arlv impressive players in a sur-
prisingly simple way. Nothing is
overstated - it doesn't need to be. In
trophy cases too small for the job,
Final Four plaques squeeze game-
balls and championship nets into a
collage of accomplishment in the
entrance way.

WEEKEND'S BEST

BEDTIME FOR BONZO
Indiana point guard Tom
Coverdale, who faces his sec-
ond alcohol-related charge this
year, won't be able to watch
late-night UPN reruns of
Horneboys in Outer Space.
Following Indiana's Friday night
win over Western Michigan,
Coverdale, a 20-year old sopho-
more, said interim Indiana
coach Mike Davis has put him
under a 10 p.m. curfew
that extends into the off- .hn
season and ordered him
to move into a dorm ands xi
seek counseling.

If referee Rich
Ballesteros had one
more eye, he'd be a j4
Cyclops. With 1.8 sec-
onds left in a tied
game between No. 5
Arizona and No. 151
Connecticut,
Ballesteros called
Arizona center Loren
Woods for goaltending

a shot that he blocked off the
backboard. Replays showed the
block to be clean, yet
Connecticut won the game 71-
69. A regretful Ballesteros
asked to officiate his next
game in Braille.
