Blue icers lfor victory against MSU

If a 3-9 hockey team, that has lost
four in a row and eight of their last ten,
would ever have big series, this is the
weekend. Michigan's icers fit this
description and tangle with intra-state
rival Michigan State this weekend in a
home-and-home series.
MSU is tied with the Wolverines and
Colorado College for eighth place in the
WCHA. In the WCHA, only eight teams
make the playoffs 'at the end of the

season. This series could go a long way
towards determining the final playoff
The Spartans sport a 3-9 WCHA
mark, 5-9 overall, after splitting with
Wisconsin last weelend. Amo
Bessone's forces have also split with
Michigan Tech (in Hougthon) and North
Dakota. "We haven't been able to put
two games together all season," said
dekers have played the top two teams in
the WCHA the last two weekends in
Minnesota and Notre Dame. This
weekend's series with the lowly Spar-
tans couldn't come at a better time.
Michigan has suffered from a dearth of
offense, due to injuries to star center=
man Terry Cullen and Dan Lerg.

Farrell agreed, "If you're going to
get into the playoffs, you better beat
them (Michigan State). Both games are
real big. They always play very hard
against us. They've had some problems
this year, too."
The Spartans are strongest down the
right side of the ice with their leading
scorer of the last two years, Russ
Welch, once again leading the way (4-
10-14). MSU's leading goal scorer, Joe
Omiccioli, backs up Welch at right wing
with eight goals and six assists on the
season. The Spartans don't lose
anything on the third line either as Ken
Paraskevin nas notched six goals and
seven assists this year.
PARASKEVIN IS teamed with Frank
Finn and converted center Arron Rucks
(4-10-14) on left wing. Other leading

Spartan icemen been off-target with
their shooting, but they also have had
"weak defensive play in our own zone
by our forwards," said Bessone.
Even though the Michigan State for-
wards have not played the defense
Bessone would have liked, opponents
have not been shredding the Spartan
nets. This is due to the fine goaltending
of Mark Mazoleni and especially Doug
Belland (3.9 goals a game). "Our
goaltending this year has been our
strongest point," Bessone injected.
MICHIGAN, ON the other hand, may
have its share of goaltending problems
this weekend, since Penn transfer Bob
Sutton broke his toe in practice this
week. Peter Mason will fill in for Sutton

behind Rudy Varvari at least foi
tomorrow night.
The forward situation will b
bolstered as both Mike Coffman an
Bill Wheeler are returning to action thi
weekend after one-week suspensions
They are coming at just the right time
as the Wolverines are sputtering alon
at less than 3.4 goals a game (54 in 1
For Michigan, freshman Murra
Eaves leads the. way with eight goal
and 15 assists for 23 points. Captai
Mark Miller, who has played inspired
hockey this year, has tallied 13 goal
and seven assists. Sophomores John
Olver, defenseman Tim Manning, and
Doug Todd round out the double-figure
scorers for the Wolverines.

Giants obtain Carew;
but need his approval

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP)-The Minne-
sota Twins have traded seven-time
American League batting champion
Rod Carew to the San Francisco Giants
in a deal that requires only Carew's ap-
proval. Twins' owner Calvin Griffith
said yesterday.
Griffith came to the winter meetings
determined to trade Carew, hopefully to
a National League team. Philadelphia
and San Francisco were the prime can-
didates but the Phillies fell out of the
sweepstakes when they signed free
agent Pete Rose to a four-year, $.32
million contract.
THAT LEFT THE Giants, and the
deal was finalized yesterday with Min-
nesota receiving two players from San
Francisco's major league roster,
probably first baseman Mike Ivie and
centerfielder Larry Herndon, and
a minor league pitcher.
Besides the three players, Griffith is
likely to get $400,000-the limit set by
Commissioner Bowie Kuhn on cash
transactions between teams-in the
"I'm confident the deal will be com-
pleted," said Griffith. "We've agreed.

There is no complication in the transac-
tion. The only complication is Mr.
Carew saying yes or no."
His approval, however, was not
assured. Carew appeared on WCCO-TV
in Minneapolis, Minn., last night after
word broke of the trade.
"I didn't want to go to San Fran-
cisco," Carew said. "I don't know how
it's going to work out." Carew said he
and his agent would meet with Giants
officials today in Minneapolis to discuss
the trade.
CAREW WAS NOT available for fur-
ther comment at his home, but his wife,
Marilyn, told the Associated Press her
husband had refused a trade to the
Giants four times previously.
"That's right. He refused them four
times," she said. "He told the Twins
that, and he told San Francisco, too. If
he can't play here, it really doesn't
matter where we go as far as making a
home is concerned because home is in
"It will just be up to Rod, for him to
decide, and where to thinks it's good for
him as a player," said Mrs. Carew.

Phtons pulverize
PONTIAC, Mich. Rookie John Long scored 28 points, and
veteran M. L. Carr added 24 as the Detroit Pistons swept past the fading
Cleveland Cavaliers 121-105 last night in the National Basketball
Carr, hitting on eight of his first 10 shots, finished the first half with 18
points. Long had 12 points by the intermission as the Pistons led 65-51.
Then Detroit opened the third period by outscoring Cleveland 18-3 in just
over four minutes. The Pistons led by as many as 30 points in coasting to
their 10th victory against 16 losses this season.
Cleveland actually made a game of it only for one quarter, trailing 30-26
going into the second period. The Cavs were outscored 35-25 in the second
quarter and then 33-22 in the third.
Orioles sold
BALTIMORE -The sale of the Baltimore Orioles to a group
headed by former Treasury Secretary William Simon is virtually complete
and should be accomplished before the start of the 1979 baseball season, the
Baltimore News American reported yesterday.
Board Chairman Jerold C. Hoffberger denied the deal was near in an in-
terview with WCBM Radio in Baltimore.
The paper, in a dispatch from baseball's winter meetings in Orlando,
Fla., quoted reliable sources as saying that the deal "is 90 percent certain to
take place before the 1979 season starts."
"The deal is all but complete-only the final details have to be ironed
out," the News American quoted one closeobserver as saying.
Helen Conklin, a spokeswoman for the Orioles, said neither she nor
anyone else in the team's Baltimore offices knew anything about the repor-
ted sale "besides what we read in the papers."
Negotiations between Hoffberger and the Simon group were first repor-
ted several weeks ago.
The group headed by Simon apparently would keep the team in
Baltimore, at least for now. But the News American said that-if the sale is
completed in time-the Orioles could play some of their 1979 gaimes in
Washington, which has been without major league baseball since the old
Senators moved to Texas after the 1971 season.
Under terms of the team's lease for Memorial Stadium, the Orioles
would be limited to a maximum of 11 games in Washington's RFK Stadium
next season.
