WOMEN FALL, 90-66
Cagers drilled by Dayton
By LIZ MAC
Michigan's women's basketball team
met with more than it could handle last
night, and were beaten by a run-and-
gun Dayton team, 90-66, last night at
The Wolverines were not nearly as ef-
fective as in their previous contests,
committing mental mistakes and not
connecting with their usually potent of-
THE DAYTON defense was un-
crackable, breaking up numerous
Wolverine passes. The Flyers' full
court press, put into action early in the
game, shut down the Blue offense and
allowed few scoring opportunities.
While Dayton's shooting percentage
was not exceptional, they consistently
worked the ball to the inside with
baseline passes and drives up the mid-
dle. The fast break accounted for
several Dayton buckets.
"We didn't play very good defense,"
admitted assistant coach Margo Plot-
zke. "They came out after us and we
didn't expect it."
Michigan's top shooter Diane Dietz
and Dayton's Carol Lammers had 26
points in the contest. Other leading Blue
point getters were Brenda Venhuizen
with 14 and Abby Currier with 8.
ROUNDING OUT Dayton's scoring
attack were Beverly Crusoe with 18 and
Ann Meyers with 16.

continued to widen. Sloppy passing and

numerous turnovers plagued the
Wolverines, who were unable to work
the fast break effectively and
managed only six points midway
through the half. Driving through the
middle, the hustling Flyers weaved
through the Michigan defense, and
despite a late surge the Wolverines
trailed at the half 55-32.
The fast break and tenacious defense
of the Flyers continued in the second
half, with Lammers and Crusoe adding
especially tough defensive play. The
sharp performances of Venhuizen and
freshwoman Jeanne White were not
enough to overcome the deficit which
stood at 71-40 at the halfway point of the
second period, and the Flyers set the
pace until the final buzzer.
WHITE ATTESTED to the Flyers'
speed. "They were beating us down the
court," she said.
But it was the defense, however, that
stumped the Blue cagers. "They were
quick," said Venhuizen, "and they were
"We couldn't get open," said Dietz.
"They had a fantastic full court press.
We couldn't get it in to our guards."
The Blue cagers had come off a 90-44
stomping of Northern Michigan, which
may have had an effect on last night's
action. "You tend to let up after an easy
game," said Plotzke.
The women's record now stands at 7-
4. Next on the schedule is a home con-
test with Wisconsin, January 12 at 7:00.

Would Newton gravitate
Like the apple gravitated toward Newton.
You see, Newton was the beneficiary of a bump of enlightenment.
Undoubtedly, he would have been amenable to other enlight-
ening stimuli as well. For example, the hearty, full-bodied flavor of
Cinci. The smooth and easy swallow. The fascinating, long-
lasting head. As thousands of others after him, it is virtually a
mathematical certainty that he would have said, "It's too good
- COLUMBUS (AP) - University of
Arkansas coach Lou Holtz said yester-
day he hasn't been offered the job of
replacing Woody Hayes, the fired foot-
ball coach at Ohio State University.
"They wanted me as a candidate, a
guy they would give careful con-
sideration to, but I would be nothing
more than a candidate like everyone
else,' Holtz told Athens, Ohio, radio
station WATH from his Little Rock,
"I may have been happier at Ohio
State," Holtz said via telephone, "but
that opportunity won't come along."
Holtz had just returned to Little Rock
after coaching in the Hula Bowl in
Honolulu. The native of East Liverpool,
Ohio, served as a defensive backfield
coach for Hayes in 1968 and coached
with present Ohio State Athletic Direc-
tor Hugh Hindman that season. They
are close friends.
ST. LOUIS (AP) - Darryl Rogers,

three years at Michigan State, directed
his squad to an 8-3 record last fall which

Rice signs -Daily Sports Staff
BOSTON (AP) - American League
Most Valuable Player Jim Rice agreed
yesterday to a multi-million-dollar,
seven-vear contract with the Boston
Red Sox yesterday, binding him to the
team through the 1985 season, and
making him one of the richest players
"I guess every player wants to be the
richest," said the 25-year-old outfielder
at a Fenway Park news conference.
The Anderson, S.C., native was called
the most productive in the major
leagues over the past three seasons by
his agent, Tony Pennacchia. He led the
major leagues with 46 home runs and
139 RBIs last year. In four full seasons,
plus the tailend of a fifth, Rice has
belted 133 home runs and driven in 453
General Manager Sullivan said the
new contract has a no-trade provision
for a portion of its duration, but Rice
confirmed there are no incentive
clauses or bonuses based on his future
Rice said he would make no im-
mediate investments - "I save"
because "a lot of ballplayers play for
many seasons and come out broke. I
don't need a yacht or another fancy
car," said Rice.
MONTREAL (AP) - Free-agent
reliever Elias Sosa has been signed to a
five-year contract by the Montreal Ex-
pos, John McHale, president and

Dominican Republic, pitched for the
Oakland A's of the American League in
1978. He was the second player to be
selected by the maximum 13 clubs in
the re-entry draft of free agents.
He appeared in 68 games last season,
compiling an 8-2 record with 14 saves
and a 2.64 earned-run average.
