Task force moves

the University of Louisville traded
their dental chairs for slide niles on
Friday as the two went toe-to-toe
again to determine who will win the
tug-of—war over some of the state’s
most lucrative programs.

U of L President Donald Swain
presented objections to a plan pre-
sented to the Governor's Higher
Education Review Commission to
make UK‘s College of Engineering
the state‘s top priority in engineer-
ing education.

It was the second time during the
commission’s meetings that the two
schools have been key competitors
for programs. In the Nov. 1 meet-
ing, UK officials objected to the
possibility of closing its dental

“I do think 1 detect a subtle
change in objectives." Swain said.
“The standards have changed from
world~class in five years to Top 50
sometime in the next eight years."

Swain said the plan would be a
“major blow" to the U of L engi-
neering school. He presented sever-
al reasons why he thought the plan
should be dropped.

“This plan is out of sync with the
whole main thrust. This is sup-
posed to get real, face the facts and
require the universities to come to

Swain said.

In addition. Swain said building
the program will cost millions of
dollars and there is no guarantee of

the money that would be shifted to
the UK College of Engineering
would take away from programs at
other schools.

Swain also objected that there
was no link between the engineer-

“It appears that UK is not willing
to accept those terms." Swain said.

In addition. Swain said a plan of
this scope could be difficult to car—

The vote on the plan was post-

think about the plan and the Coun-
cil on Higher Education will be

Marion Blanchard. teleihon di-

“This is our sixth card. We

A group of UK football players

But the children weren't there

At a little above table level.
anxious eyes peered about the
room. quickly fixing on anyone
wearing red and white.

Anticipation swallowed the
children's appetites. Their eggs
and toast grew cold and stale on
their plates.

Nearly a hundred kids were
there, all very well behaved, wait-

Holiday music filled the room
when several UK students from
Alpha Ganuna Delta social sorori-

Christmas carols.

the organ while her students car-

Expectations intensified.

Suddenly. the room became a
little brighter. The children‘s fac-

full smiles and imppy screeches,

Santa had arrived.

Santa visited the pediatric pa-
tients for the seventh consecutive
year, and as always he brought a
big basket of treats and an mful
of happiness.

"Ho, ho. ho. Have you been
good this yw’?‘ Santa asked a lit-
tle boy who clung to his leg.

A line that stretched from the
front of the room to the res door
formed behind Santa as he made
his way to his throne.

Most of the littlest ones were

But Santa said he understood.
He loved them too and already
knew what presents to bring. The
twinkle in his eye confumed it

Small school kids came. and
teenagers too. presenting their

Coach hardens Hoosiers after opening defeat

But Knight helped his players re-

On Saturday. the 21st-ranked
Hoosiers looked nothing like a team
that lost at Butler just seven days
earlier. Instead. they looked like a
team that could beat the best teams
in the country. And they did, top-
pling No. 1 UK 96-84 in the Hoosi-
er Dome.

Knight sequestered himself and
his players from the media this
week. so only they know what hap-
pened in practice. But suffice it to
say they worked on more than lay-
up drills.

“We really didn't prepare for
Kentucky." said Indiana senior
Damon Bailey.

The Hoosiers must have watched
more film this week than the robots

ploit everything they do wrong.

Take, for example. UK’s three-

In last season’s 81-78 UK win,
the Cats hit 16 of 41 threes. Satur-
day. they madejust 9 of 33.

No one was shackled by India-
na's defense more than Travis Ford.
The senior point guard. who was 7
of 12 on threes in last season's
game. missed 13 of his 20 shots
Saturday, including 8 of his 11

“They did a good job of not let-
ting us shoot our threes." said Ford,
who finished with 20 points. “They
always knew where I was and our
other three-point shooters were."

Indiana also limited UK's other
three-point marksmen. Tony Delk
and Jeff Brassow, to just 5 of 15
combined from three-point land.

“We didn't want those guys
shooting three-pointers. and if they
were. we wanted them a couple of
steps behind the line." Bailey said.

Well, then. how about UK‘s in-
side game? After all, UK attempted
just 13 threes in its 115-77 win over
Tennessee Tech on Wednesday. If
the threes weren't falling, the Cats
could just pound it inside right?

Funny thing is, the Hoosiers wer-
en‘t tired because of what the Cats
did to them. it was what Indiana did
to UK.

“The biggest trouble players have
with a press is they’re timid.
they're scared," Indiana point
guard Damon Bailey said after IU’s
96-84 victory at the Hoosier Dome.

“We just tried to attack it If
we've got a full head of steam, it‘s
hard to stop somebody. We wanted
to make an advantage for us and
get a fast break out of it."

The Cats tried to stop Bailey all
afternoon. but he continuously gave
them fits.

He was the reason Indiana led by
11 at halftime. with his press-
breaking coast-to-coast drives. Bai-
ley had 23 points and five rebounds
at the break and finished with 29
points for the day. ‘

“Damon Bailey was the best
player on the court." UK coach
Rick Pitino said. “I think his self-
confidence is so much higher. He
looks totally different. I never

Bailey cashed in on 16 of those

“I felt this was the best Bailey
has played." Hoosier head coach
Bob Knight said. “This is how Bai-
ley has to play basketball. There
was just something about Bailey
that was like ‘Goddammit, we're
gonna play.’ That's the kind of ap-
proach that can make Bailey a good

UK‘s Travis Ford. Bailey’s coun-
terpart, was impressed with his
press-breaking and leadership abili-

“He played with more confidence
than I've ever seen him tonight,"
Ford said.

“He wanted to take over and it
showed. He really wants to be in
the ballgame and he wants to be a
leader. Andlthinkhehastobe. In-
diana needs his leadership and
needs his points."

UK senior Jeff Bmssow, who
played 13 minutes in the frontcourt
of the Wildcat press, thought Bai-
ley found a second wind in his

“He's the best player they've
got." Brassow said.

As for the UK press. Brusow
thought it was more inviting than
he had hoped.

“They just went right through it."
he said.

Bailey has flourished at times for
a coach he thinks is easy to play

“Coach hm a system that any-
body can play it." he said.

Henderson and Brian Evans held
UK’s two centers, who were aver-
aging 28 points per game. to just
13. Starter Rodney Dent had just
two points.

“We were trying to go inside. but
their big people dominated." UK
coach Rick Pitino said.

“They doubled down in the
paint," Dent said. “We couldn't get
any shots."

Without an inside game and with
the three-pointer shut down, the
Cats were in trouble.

“We did not cut backdoor, and
our big men roamed away from the
basket too much." Pitino said. “It
was just Travis Ford trying to get a
pick. and that was our offense. It
wasn't very pretty."

Neither was UK‘s defense. Near-
ly the only defense the Cats could
find to Indiana's cuts and streaks
past the press was to foul. Indiana
shot 42 free throws. with Bailey
alone making 16 of 19. He finished
with 29 points.

Indiana built an ll-point halftime
lead and led by as much as 65-50 in
the second half. But UK stormed
back to within 66-63 as the blue
part of the crowd of 38.197 went

But UK missed several opportu-
nities and had several three-pointers
come up short. The Hoosiers. tired
but determined, withstood the bar-

With the loss, the Cats (2-1) will

Pitino says that ranking was unde-

I_ felt this was the best (Damon) Bailey has
played. ms is how Bailey has to play
basketball. There was just something about
Bailey that was like ‘Goddammit, we’re gonna
play.’ That’s the kind of approach that can make

Knight was prepared for the re-
lentless UK pressure. He had his
players play like animals backed
into a corner.

They attacked.

"They just stay at you.” Knight

“You have to take advantage of
the press.“

After Indiana's season-opening
loss to Butler. the Hoosiers took a
week of practice to shuffle person-
nel and look for some heart

“We tried all week to get a team
together that plays hard." guard
Todd Leary said.

After looking at the effort Indiana
displayed against Butler. Leary was
left feeling weary.

“It was really kind of pathetic.“
he said.

Pitino liked UK's intensity but
was incensed by the abundance of
hacks and chops that put III at the
line 42 times in the game.

“Wlmt we had tonight wu hustle
and no quit." he said. “We fouled
too much. You can‘t foul Damon

Indiana didn‘t seem to fatigue as
much as Wildcat opponents usually

”Die only thing we could have
been tired from was this week‘s
practice," Knight said.

seam quite happy I) rid himself of
