DIETZ PACES BLUE, 81-67:

Womei
By ELISA FRYE
A hot-shooting Michigan women's
basketball team was lying in wait for
the Hurons of Eastern Michigan last
night at Crisler Arena, and the Hurons
found, themselves on the wrong end of
the gun as thesWolverines were vic-
torious, 81-67.
The Wolverines started the game
with a zone defense that seemed inef-
fective at first. Their early lead soon
dwindled away, until guard Terry
Schevers came in at 14:57 and set
things to rights. From then on, the
cagers dominated and led at the half,
42-33.
SLOPPY PASSING was prevalent on
both teams throughout the game;
Michigan had 32 turnovers and Eastern
had 31.
Foiuls also haunted Michigan in the
second half, but the Wolverines didn't
let the penalties deter them from their
play.
"We have a rule," said Coach Gloria
Soluk. "We don't believe in keeping
kids out when they have foul trouble;
pr
Target practice

i cage rs
they might gocod
"They can't play as aggressively, but
they're protected in the zone," she ad-
ded.
Three Michigan players,' Abby
Currier, Terry Schevers and Yvette
Harris, played most of the second half
with four fouls. Even so, Currier had
the second highest scoring on the team
with 19 points, and Harris contributed
12 points. Forward Katie McNamara
added 14 to the effort.
GUARD DIANE Dietz produced 20
points,. eight of which were free throws.
Dietz shot forty per cent from the floor,

trounce Hurons

but her free throw average was 100 per
cent.
The Wolverines used a new defense
against Eastern: the match-up defense,
which Soluk describes as "man-to-man
principles in a zone."
"We use the match-up defense again-
st quick guards," explained Soluk.
"Our zone defense looks weak, but
when other teams are quicker, you
have to resort to it."
This was the same Eastern Michigan
team that the Blue cagers had lost to,
75-74, in the Motor City Tournament,
and this time the Wolverines were,

ready for the Hurons and their speedy
guards.
"THEY (EMU) didn't know how to
run an offense on this defense," ex-
plained Soluk.
Because of the unfamiliar defense,
Eastern's scoring was thinly spread.
Denise Allen was the top scorer of the
game with 21 points and the other high
scorer on her team was Sheryl Mullice
with 12 points.
The Wolverines have two more home
games left in the season. Their next is
against Purdue Thursday night at 5:15
at Crisler Arena.

By JOHN LIBBE
Wolverine women's track coach Ken
Simmons must be wondering what he
has to do to win a track meet. It's no
wonder, as a combination of bad luck
and lack of personnel again denied the
squad victory An a triangular meet
against Central Michigan and Macomb
Community College Saturday.
"(It was) another example of great
quality but no quantity," said Simmons
after the narrow 59-56 setback at the
hands of the Chippewas, a team Sim-
mons called "the second best in the
state." The straw that broke the
Wolverines' back was the fourth place
finish by a very sick Marianne Dicker-
son in the two-mile run, a race she could
have easily won if healthy. "Two weeks
ago she beat them all," noted Simmons.
SIMMONS SAW several bright spots
despite the disappointing loss. The Blue
sprinters held up their end, as they
went 1-2-3 in both the 60-yard and 220-
yard dashes. Freshwoman Catherine
Sharpe led the way with winning times
of 7.1 and 25.5 seconds, respectively.
Simmons was also pleased with the
performance of Renee Turner in

leading a 1-2 finish in the hurdles. "I
thought Turner's performance in the
hurdles was pretty good," he said.
"One of the big surprises for me was
Debbie Williams in the shot." Williams
placed second with a put of 39'6", in an
event that is not even her specialty.
Dickerson also ran a 5:03.2 mile for a
school record, before the'flu bug hit her.
THE HIGH JUMP and long jump
proved to be major shortcomings for
the team Saturday, for it didn't score a
single point in the two events. "We gave
away 20 points in the high jump and the

long jump," lamented Simmons.
Despite the loss, Simmons was not
discouraged by the performance of his
squad as a whole. "All in all, it was a
good performance by very few girls,"
he said. "We lost to them (CMU) by
more than thirty points last year."
The trackster's next meet is an ab-
breviated ten event contest this Friday
at the Track-Tennis Building against
Hillsdale and Macomb Community
College. Starting at 3:30, it will precede
the men's Wolverine Invitational track
meet.

The Michigan Daily-Tuesday, February 20, 1979-Page 9
Tumblers spirit not
dampened bylossE
"You've got to look at the rainbow side of things," said gymnastics
coach Newt Loken about last Saturday's meet against highly touted Indiana
State. Although the Michigan gymnasts lost to the Sycamores, the intense
competition pushed them to a season high team score, which is also a Big
%'Ten high for this season.
"Indiana State certainly proved they're one of the the best teams in the
nation with their score of 223.2," said Loken."We felt we were partly respon-
sible in that we pushed them, and as a result scored our season high of
213.95."
World class performer Kurt Thomas paced the Sycamores to victory in
front of a home crowd in Terre Haute. Thomas averaged 9.5 on each of the
six events to tally an all-around score of 57.1.
The Wolverines also posted some impressive individual scores. Bruce.
Schuchard and Al Berger broke their career high records in all-around with
a 51.75 and 48.75, respectively.
Nigel Rothwell came through with a 9.0 average on all-around to score a
solid 53.6. Jim Varilek, Darrell Yee, Gordie Highman, and Ron Tickman aiso
!gwere on top of things as they each posted 9.0's or better. .
"And Bob Creek threw his full twisting double flyaway off the high bar.'.,
for the first time in competition, so we're excited about that," said Loken-
With performances like the one last weekend, the Michigan tumblers
could be one of the top contenders for the Big Ten title at the championships4-
to be held at Crisler Arena in March. "Everybody ate their theaties or<;
something," said Rothwell about the meet at ISU. "But there's still room for- ;
improvement." .

Again a bridesmaid;.
Indiana State bumped
Pity poor Indiana State. After finally being awarded the top spot in at least
one poll last week, and still not having lost a game all season, what happens? You
guessed it: AP pollsters awarded UCLA the top spot, shoving Indiana State down
to second. UCLA now holds down the top position in both polls.
The rest-of the Top Ten remained stable for the most part. Syracuse switched
spots with Duke, and Marquette and Texas moved up to the number nine and ten
spots, respectively in the UPI poll. Duke was again displaced in the AP Top Ten, this
time by LSU. Michigan State moved up to seventh, ahead of Syracuse, Marquette,
and Arkansas.
Big Ten teams are still putting in a good showing in both polls. Michigan State
is currently the only squad in the top Ten, seventh in AP and eighth in UPI, but
=three other teams are not far behind. Iowa, tied for the lead in the Big Ten race,
has moved up to the 12th and 11th spots respectively, while Ohio State is 14th and
13th and Purdue is 18th and 17th.
Terry Duerod and Company at the University of Detroit are ranked in both
polls for the second week in a row. The Titans hold down the 18th spot in the UPI
poll and 16th in the AP poll. Dick Vitale, you can rest in peace, at least for a little
while.

By the Associated Press
DETROIT-Unseeded Sue Barker of
England and No. 6 seed Ann Kiyomura
were among thosewho advanced
yesterday to the second round of the
$150,000 women's professional tennis
tournament at Cobo Arena.
Both had a rough time, however,
Kiyomura defeated Bettyann Stuart 4-
6, 6-2, 6-4 and Barker got by Barbara
Potter 3-6, 7-5, 7-6.
Local hopeful Susy Mascarin, a 14-
year-old ninth-grader from Grosse
Pointe, Mich., was a 6-2, 6-2 victim of
Czechoslovakia's Renata Tomanova in
the day's opening match.
Other, winners included Marrita
Redondo, Kate Latham and Carrie
Meyer.
More opening round matches are
scheduled for today. The second round
beings Wednesday.
Top prize in the tournament is $30,000
with Martina Navratilova the favorite.
Selmon signs
TAMPA-The Tampa Bay Bucca-
neers said yesterday that they had
reached an agreement with All-
National Football League defensive end
Lee Roy Selmon.
Selmon, the first college player ever
drafted by the Bucs, would have been in
his option season this year. Terms of
the agreement, described as "a series
of one-year contracts," were not
revealed.
The former Oklahoma star became
the first Bucs' player to gain post-
season recognition when the Associated
Press selected him to its All-League
team at the end of the 1978 season.
Selmon and his brother Dewey, a
linebacker, were key players in the im-
proved Tampa Bay defense last year.
He missed the last two games with a
knee injury.

Auto antics
DAYTONA BEACH-While Cale
Yarborough, a two-time Golden Gloves
state welterweight champion, was
giving Bobby Allison a fat lip and his
own career a black eye, very few people
seemed to notce that Richard Petty
had blocked Darrell Waltrip nearly on-

to the infield to protect his victory
margin in Sunday's wild Daytona 500.
"Nodody said a word about what
Richard did to Darrell. Richard had
him all the way down on the safety
apron of the track, blocking him. That's
because protecting your lead is one of
the rules of the road in stock car
racing," said one official. "That's the
idea of any sport. I don't know what
Cale is beefing about."
Petty's was exactly the kind of
blocking maneuver that Yarborough
criticized Donnie Allison so bitterly for
executing on the last lap of the $600,000
stock car classic. Both drivers crashed
when Yarborough refused to give
ground to the frontrunning Allison. Pet-
ty went on to win the race.
Officials of the National Association
for Stock Car Auto Racing sanctioning
body met here yesterday to decide
whether any of the driving tactics or the
fisticuffs afterward between Yar-
borough and ,the Allison brothers
warranted disciplinary action.
