The Graduate and Co-rec teams play at 10 p.m. on

Co-rec squads are still in playoffs, but in the Graduate di-
vision, Law Gold will defend its title against Law Vermillion.
Besides basketball, representatives from the men's and wo-
men's divisions will swim in the All Campus Swimming and Div-
ng Champioships at Mat Mann Pool from 7-9:30 p.m.
The top six times, regardless of division, were selected in

women three events in this All Campus meet.
Next door in the IM pool, two waterpolo games will splash
on from 7-8:30 p.m. The top four Co-rec waterpolo teams will
participate in this exhibition.
The 'M' Gals division squash tournament starts at 7:30
p.m. featuring such standouts as Carol Stewart, Janet Hoop-
er and Jan Van Sweden.
Matches in the various racquet sports will be held through-
out the evening, but starting times are not definite as yet.
Come on down and watch the action next Thursday, Febru-
ary 28. As the IM department spokespeople say, "We are cer-
tain you will find something of interest."

Moor4
By BILL STIEG
Everything about Robbie Moore
helps make him a crowd pleaser.
The fans at Yost Ice Arena are,
familiar with the bantam goalten-
der's trademarks: his garish maize
and blue mask, his casual yet deft
handling of the stick, his daring,
dangerous style of play, and most
obvious, the way he moves-self
assured, full of cocky confidence.
If, anyone swaggers while wear-
ing skates, it's Moore. On the
weekend nights in Yost this win-
ter, Moore has been a show in
himself. Combining amazing skill,
a freewheeling style, and cool
confidence, he puts on a perform-
ance the fans can't help but en-
joy.-I
