MONDAY, OCTOBER 21, 1991 -THE INDIANAPOLIS STAR- D-3 Shepherd set to try ACC at Florida State By CURT CAVIN STAR STAFF WRITER uA year from now. Florida State will begin to travel the tough basketball road of the Atlantic Coast Conference. dGarmel's Scott Shepherd will be there to help point the way. The 5-11 Shepherd announced Sunday night his intentions to Join the FjRrida State program, turning down requests from North Carolina, Wake Forest and Indiana. .. PI visited (Florida State) this week-erid.nd really had a good time," he said, "What I liked was Coach Pat Kennedy, the way he coaches, the way he teaches on the court and the way he handles things. ...".It's also a chance to play in the ACC and in a program that needs (point) guards. They've got (junior college, player of the year) Sam Cassell coming in and I'll play behind him when he's a senior. I'll have my opportunity when I'm a sophomore." The marriage to Florida State and the ACC adds to the pressure building for Shepherd, who averaged 25 points assists for Carmel last year. Expectations have always loomed large for the son of 1968 Indiana Mr. Basketball Billy Shepherd, but as a senior, talk of being a 1992 Mr. Basketball candidate has surfaced. T7 Carmel senior Scott Shepherd, who averaged 25 points and seven assists last season, is confident he will have success while playing in the Atlantic Coast Conference. So has criticism that the younger Shepherd is too short and too slow to play with the fast-paced big boys. "I felt very confident that I could play at North Carolina . . . and I think I can play (at Florida State)." he said. "They've said after my freshman year (the point) is my Job to screw up, and that's a pretty strong commitment." Carmel coach Bob Heady agreed. "This (recruiting) decision is made by people who are better at making the Judgment than I," he said. "They know what Scott can do for them. "I've never seen Scott bothered by (an opponent's) quickness and our schedule is loaded with It. He knows he has a lot of work to do. but it would be a challenge for anybody." Shepherd's decision comes on the eve of the high school basketball season, which begins Its practice stage today for boys and girls. SHEPHERD BECOMES the second of Indiana's top high school se- . nlors to announce their college plans. Last Tuesday, Charles Macon of Michigan City Elston verbally commit- . ted to Ohio State. Walter McCarty of Evansville Harrison, who has visited Purdue, toured Kentucky last weekend and will see Evansville before picking. Wisconsin booters snap IU streaK FROM STAFF AND WIRE REPORTS Wisconsin did what no other Big Ten soccer team has been able to do for 68 games: Beat Indiana. The Uth-ranked Badgers (12-2-1) became the first Big Ten school to beat Indiana in the 1 9 years that soccer has been a varsity sport with a 1-0 victory Sunday at Madison, Wis. The loss was the first of the season for the Hooslers (12-1-1). who came into the game ranked second in the Gatorade 1SAA poll and poised to move to No. 1 as top-rated Santa Clara lost last week. "If you don't score, you're not going to win. We knew the streak had to come to an end sometime," Indiana coach Jerry Yeagley said. "It was unfortunate that the goal was a controversial call. A 0-0 score would have better represented how the teams played today." The lone goal came midway through the first half on a penalty kick. Indiana's Blake Rodgers and Chris Casa-buro collided with the Badgers' Brett LaFerrera as the threesome converged on a loose ball In the penalty box. A tripping foul was called and LaFerrera was awarded a penalty kick. LaFerrera scored his seventh goal of the season as he beat goalkeeper Andre Luciano to his right at the 24: 1 5 mark. BEFORE THE locker room cleared Saturday after Indiana University's 24-16 Big Ten football loss at fourth-ranked Michigan, the mood brightened and the focus shifted. "We're not going to lay down. Right now this is hard to swallow but come (today), we'll get right back after it," said center Jason Mack. "The Big Ten is a crazy conference. COLLEGE NOTEBOOK You can have some ups and downs and Michigan still has some tough games." So do the Hooslers (3-2-1). They go to Wisconsin this week, come home to play Minnesota, then visit Iowa and Ohio State before closing at home with Purdue. Indiana shares second place with Iowa, Ohio State, Purdue and Illinois at 2-1. Michigan stands alone at 3-0. The Hooslers have come a long way since their opening 47-29 loss to Notre Dame. They played well, maybe as well as they could Saturday while a share of first place slipped away. The idea is to continue to elevate that performance celling, to make first downs at the 11-, 9-, 10-, and 8-yard lines worth more than nine points. "We Just have to come back (today) and focus on Wisconsin," said linebacker Mark Hagen. "We have to prepare hard for Wisconsin and keep getting better." PURDUE RACKED up 238 yards in the first half Saturday while taking a 14-0 lead. In the second half, the Boilermakers managed Just 91 yards in the 28-7 victory over visiting Wisconsin. "We get really conservative because we get afraid to do things," said Purdue coach Jim Colletto, whose team (3-3, 2-1 in the Big Ten) hosts No. 15 Iowa (5-1, 2-1) at 11:30 a.m. Saturday (ESPN). "We don't make plays. We had the right play called four or five times and we didn't execute. And when you don't (execute), the series is over and you're out of it." Eric Hunter, who won a practice competition with freshman Matt Pike for the starting quarterback's job Saturday, completed 8 of 18 passes (one Interception, one TD) for 95 yards. Colletto said the Junior Hunter did far better than Pike in game situations In practice. . For the most part. Colletto refrained from criticizing Hunter during the game. "I tried to stay away from him (Saturday) and had him talk to quarterback coach (Tim) Salem all the time." Colletto said. "So he didn't have to hear me yelling his ear." ' "I think that helped a little bit," said Hunter with a smile. ,J BALL STATE'S basketball opener Dec. 3 against Mississippi State probably won't be played In the university's new $18-million arena. Instead, school officials have made plans for starting the season In the Cardinals' old home, Irving Gymnasium. Construction is still under way on the project that began in April 1 990 and was set to be finished by mid-October. The ticket office has ordered two sets of tickets one for each playing site. If the arena is not completed for the start of the season, it could be January before the first game is played there. Ball State students will be on semester break from Dec. 14-Jan. 6, and the arena opener probably will not be played while many students are away. IU BASKETBALL guard Pat Graham Is expected to be out at least six weeks with a broken bone in his left foot, sports information director Kit Kllngelhoffer said Sunday. M Graham, a 6-5 Junior who averaged 7.4 points last season, injured his foot in Friday's practice. CART Continued from Page 1 "It's perfect. It couldn't have been written any better," declared Andrettl, who won his seventh pole position Friday, the $275,000 Marlboro Challenge Saturday and another $83,700 Sunday. "It's unbelievable. It Just goes to show you how lucky this weekend has been. "My guys did a perfect Job, just like they've done all year, and. they gave me a great car . . . that's why I'm here." At the green flag, Andrettl Jumped in front, followed closely by Fittipaldi, who started third and. blew past teammate Rick Mears going into the first corner. Rahal. who needed to finish third and also have Michael fall out .was running fifth when he was forced to park the Kra-coSTP LolaChevy. "Once Bobby dropped out, we CART champion Michael An-dretti capped a sensational year with a near flag-to-flag triumph Sunday, his eighth win of the season. FINAL CART STANDINGS 1.

Scott Pruett 67 decided to go for it," said Andrettl. Fittipaldi, In the Marlboro PenskeChevy. applied the only pressure Michael felt during the first half of the 84-lap road race. But when the two-time Formula One champion suddenly slowed on Lap 38, it was clear sailing for the new champ. "My drink bottle came loose In the cockpit and while I was trying to get rid of It three or four cars got past me," explained Emmo, who had to unhook his seat belts to reach down and find the water bottle rattling around at his feet. "Then Rick (Mears) and I got together In Turn 9 and I damaged my suspension but the car was still driveable. "Before that, I know I was the fastest car on the track and I was catching Michael." Unser, who got some great pit work which helped vault him from sixth to third during the first round of fuel stops. Inherited second while Fittipaldi was battling his bottle. But Junior could never challenge for the lead. "We got working fairly well, but not as well as Michael ... I was Just trying to keep up," said Unser. The best race was between Mario Andrettl and Fittipaldi as the two old pros chased each other the final 25 laps with Mario holding on for third place. "I fought hard for what I had and I tried to defend myself as best I could," said the elder Andretti. "You only zig-zag like that if you have a couple of laps to go ... I hope he (Fittipaldi) understands." Mears, who looked so strong In Saturday's Marlboro Challen-ege, was bothered with handling problems and settled for fifth. Rahal, whose consistency kept him In the hunt, had a disappointing last race with Rick Galles but saluted the new king. "We gave It our best shot and we had a good year but we just didn't win enough races," said the two-time CART champ. "Michael certainly earned his championship." Hawks get shots; Blues get victory ASSOCIATED PRESS Pat Jablonskl stopped 43 shots in his first start of the season as the St. Louis Blues beat: the host Chicago Black-hawks 4-1 on Sunday night. Jablonskl, making only his 13th career start, made 16 saves in tjag first period, allowing only Mike Stapleton's goal, then turned aside 15 shots In the NHL ROUNDUP Miller second period and 12 more In the third to end Chicago's five-game unbeaten streak.

He was an Instant hit in Formula Fords, but that's no career guarantee. "God, I didn't know. You dream about these things," Michael replied when asked if expected this success. "I still can't believe It's happened." But his famous father knew It was in the genes. "I was testing my Indy car at Elkhart Lake and Michael stepped In," Mario Andrettl recalled. "Right away, he got down to competitive times and then he got out of the car and said, 'Not that big a deal.' "1 knew he was ready right then." Seated next to his son In Lagu-na Seca's interview room, the 51-year-old legend was indeed a proud papa. He'd driven a fine race to take third, his other son. Jeff, claimed rookle-of-the-year honors and he was savoring the moment. "I can't think of a better payoff for all the hard work and sacrifice that goes Into thisjob," said Mario. "This Is what you drive for. This Is what you strive for. God bless auto racing. It's been good to this family. "I'm very thankful and I'm Just happy I was able to share the podium with him." It wasn't all that long ago that Mario was The Man In Indy-car racing. He's still plenty competitive but he hasn't won since 1988. "I'll tell you why I haven't won.v he said, breaking Into a grin. "My kid. We're all out there doing our thing and I finished third today but not because I let him win. I'm doing the best I can, but he's been able to dial his car in better all year. "I'm happy for him. He did a fantastic Job this year." For sure, Michael Is now The Man. He overcame a 34-point deficit to Bobby Rahal by winning six of the last 1 1 races In the PPG series. Ovals or road courses, young Andretti dictated the pace. "Milwaukee was one of things that helped turn the season around," he said. "It was perfect because it was the first time the three of us (Mario, cousin John and Michael) were on the victory podium. From then on. It was just about a perfect season." A lot of things have changed about Indy-car racing since a brazen Italian kid named Mario came storming onto the USAC scene In 1964. Drivers don't run sprinters at Salem, Winchester, Terre Haute and Eldora before they can get to Indy. But Michael could have probably succeeded in his dad's era. "I don't see why not," Mario said. "He could have ridden a dirt car, I guarantee it. When you're a racer, you're a racer and that kid is definitely a racer." Is he ever. CAR PHONES THAT WON'T BREAK YOU UP! Prices starting at . . .
