Although making a close game out of what
should have been a runaway, Michigan's Varsity
Reserve basketball team turned back a stubborn
squad from Eastern Michigan, 86-67.
The Wolverines ran out to a quick 18-10 lead in
the first 8:59 of the game, but then tightened up for
the rest of the second half and walked into the
lockerroom at intermission hanging on to a slim 38-
31 lead.
THINGS DIDN'T IMPROVE much after the
break as EMU ran off six points to Michigan's two
to make a ball game, 40-37. A Blue time out seemed
to tranquilize its jitters and the Wolverines began to
look for better shots and control the tempo, shutting
down the effectiveness of the Hurons zone defense.
The game never got any closer than five points
as the Wolverines received strong help off the bench
from forwards Mike Damken and Chris Fielder.
"Fielder and Damken did an excellent job for us
off the bench tonight," said head coach Dan Fife.
Indeed, Fielder and Damken added nine and ten
points, respectively, through the nets in the second

THE TALLER HURONS took advantage of
Michigan's lack of height to crash the boards for
many offensive rebounds, most of thom belonging to
EMU's center Mike Appelbet. The 6-7 junior led all
cagers with 13 boards.
Wolverine guard Ray Owens found his shooting
touch in the second half to lead Michigan with 24
points, 16 of them coming in the second half.
"I was a little wary coming into this game after
having beat them at home earlier," Fife said,
referring to Michigan's January 19 win over the
same EMU squad, 79-ยข3. "We beat them in our gym
and its always tough to win when you go to theirs."
"We were patient in the second half against their.
zone and were able to look for the good shot," Fife
added. His team got a little too patient near the end
'of the game as the JV's displayed their own version
of Dean Smith's delay game with over six minutes
to play and maintaining a 67-55 lead.
"We weren't in a delay, but my players thought
we were," Fife quipped. "I told them to be patient
and look for the good shot, but they were too
patient."

were Fielder with 17 and John Wangler and Buddy
Van De Wage, each with 12. EMU's Paul Ash led all
scores with 25 points.
Even though Owens led the Blue scoring, he still
has one unfulfilled goal - to ram one through the
rim.
"I would have had one tonight if I hadn't slipped,
man," Owens said.
He'll get another chance Thursday night before
the varsity contest when the JV's host St. Clair
Shores Community College at 5:45 in Crisler Arena.

SPORTS OF THE DAILY

Women tat
By KEN CHOTINER
Michigan's women tankers returned
triumphantly this weekend from the
East with victories against Rutgers,
Princeton and Penn State. On Friday
the Wolverines topped the highly-
regarded Scarlet Knights, 75-56. In tri-
meet action the next night, Michigan
swamped Princeton, 104-27, and Penn
State, 114-17.
"So far, we've been better than the
teams we've swam against;" stated
coach Stu Isaac. "When we compete in
the nationals, there will be a lot of good
swimmers from excellent teams. Also a
lot of our swimmers are improving.
They're now beating swimmers who
previously have beaten them."
Last year, Katy McCully lost to
Rutgers' All-American Maureen Mor-
tell in the 200-yard freestyle. But this
year, the roles were reversed as Mc-
Cully touched out Mortell in what
proved to be an exciting race.
"Rutgers was a close meet. All the
rages were well swam and it could have
gone either way," commented Isaac.
Highlighting the Rutgers meet was
Michigan's Lisa Matheson's victory
over Ellen Wallace in the 1000-yard
freestyle. Matheson had a substantial
lead after the first 500 yards, but was
passed with only 150 yards to go. The
Wolverine swimmer gained her lead at
the last second and won by a touch out.

ikers top ti
Attending the Friday night meet were
over a thousand cheering Rutgers'
fans. "It was a great crpwd-very en-
thusiastic. But the Michigan supporters
were just as enthusiastic," said Isaac.
Saturday morning brought about a
tri-meet with Princeton, Penn State
and Michigan in Princeton's pool.
Although the Wolverines were tired
from the previous evening's meet, their
time continued to improve.
Michigan's Monica Scheff and Sue
Colins greatly improved their times in
the 100 butterfly with times of 58.77 and
59.22 respectively.
Key Michigan swimmers included
Sharon Flaherty, who, was timed at
1:00.35 and 2:08.48 in the 100 and 200
backstrokes. McCully made the AAU
cutoff time in the 200 individual medley
while Jody Ford and Flaherty swam
consistently well. At this meet, eleven
cutoff times were made for the
nationals.
In diving, Chris Seufert, Julie Bach-
man and Liz Higgins placed first,
second and third consistently. "They
are improving very nicely and I feel
they are some of the best divers in the
country," claimed Isaac.
This weekend's victories will
probably boost Michigan's ratings up
into the top ten. Prior to last weekend
the Blue tankers were rated eleventh in

hree teams
the nation while Rutgers held down the
12th position.
Rogers in?
DETROIT - Michigan State football
coach Darryl Rogers is the top candi-
date for the as-yet-unvacated head
coaching job of the St. Louis Cardinals
of the National Football League, a De-
troit sportscaster said yesterday.
Al Ackerman, sports director of
WXYZ-TV, said he learned from reli-
able sources that Rogers was the top
candidate to replace Don Coryell at St.
Louis.
Rogers was out of state and not im-
mediately available for comment.
Joe Kearney, Michigan State athletic
director, was also out of state and not
available.
Rogers, 42, guided Michigan State to
a 6-1-1 conference record and 7-3-1
overall mark. He was named Big Ten
coach of the year. -AP

If y'ou think finding your way around the computer career maze has to be confusing, think
smart.:
If you think all computer companies offer the same challenges and opportunities, think
twice.
And if you know there's a difference between a computer job and a computer career, think
Prime.
Prime Computer is the fastest growing high-technology computer manufacturer in the
world. We need bright, career-minded engineers who are ready to meet the challenges of
today's technology and make original contributions for tomorrow's computers.
Prime Computer will be here soon and if you'd like to talk to us about a computer career,
we'd like to talk with you. In fact, if you find our interview sheets atthe Placement Office are
full, sign up anyway. We'll make the time to meet with you. And you'll talk with members of
our engineering department who'll tell you about a computer career at Prime.
While you're signing up, take one of our brochures. It includes our answers to some
questions we think you should ask any college recruiter. And when you read the brochure
you'll see what three graduates of the class of '77 have toasay about why they came to Prime.

DO YOU WANT TO FLY?

I.

Face it. . .you've always wanted to fly! Many of us have
had the feeling . . and for some it has never gone away.
If you have that feeling, then you're in luck. Air Force ROTC
Flight Instruction Program (FIP) is available to you. It's de-
signed to teach you the basics of flight through flying lessons
in small aircraft at a civilian operated flying school.
The program is an EXTRA for cadets who can qualify to be-
come Air Force pilots through Air Force ROTC. Taken during
the senior year in college, FIP is the first step for the cadet who
is going onto Air Force jet pilot training after graduation.
This is all reserved for the cadet who wants to get his life off
