Sorry folks, even though the
Wolverines did not make it toa
the NCAA finals and the Pistons
are on the skids, you cannot for-
get about basketball yet.
This Sunday, the Fourth An-
nual Ann Arbor Basketball Clas-!
sic will be played at Concordia
College featuring the top high
school cagers from Michigan,1
Illinois and Indiana.
Created by Michigan IM as-
sistant director Sandy Sandersi
four years ago the tournament1
has undergone major changes in
finding its present status. 1
It was originally a pro-set
tourney which featured high
school, college and pro basket-
ball players. Last year it was
modified just to, high schoolers.
"To get the pro players we
had to wait until the end of
the pro season. By that time
most people interested in high
school and college ball had
just lost interest," Sanders ex-
plained. r

Purdue have also competed.

produced," said Sanders. "Al-

ders originally expected.
"Frankly it hasn't gone quite
as well as I thought it would,
but things are picking up.'
Basketball is getting very big,
and as it grows, so will the
tournament" he said.
Whether it has been "big" or
not in the past this year's ros-
ter features some of the state's
best cagers.
And although Lansing Everett

ican Earvin Johnson will be in
Europe touring with the Mc-
Donald's blue chip team, the
tourney still boasts some of the
nation's best.
Kevin Smith, Brother Rice's
All-American guard and a top
Michigan recruit will be play-
ing. Smith led the Warriors to
the finals of the Class A state
championship before falling to
the Johnson-led Vikings. Nev-
ertheless, Smith poured in 25
points includling a half court
shot at the buzzer which sent
the contest into overtime.

Dekers receive honors
Several awards were handed out to the NCAA runner-up
Michigan hockey team, last night at the Hockey Awards Ban-
quet sponsored by the Dekers Club.
Junior Dave Debol was awarded the Hal Downes Trophy for
being the most valuable player as voted by the team. Debol end-
ed the year with 99 points, including a Michigan season record 56
assists and a share of another Michigan record with 43 goals.
Senior Rob Palmer received the Carl Isaacson Memobial
Trophy for being the player who exhibited the highest schol-
astic average plus excellent athletic ability. Palmer has the
most career points in Michigan history for a defenseman
with 98.
Sophomore John Waymann was honored wih the Alton Simms
Trophy for being the most improved player. Waymann scored,
the tying goal in the NCAA title game against Wisconsin, and
he played the last part of the regular season and the playoffs
with a broken foot.
Freshmen Dan Lerg and Dean Turner each received the
Dekers Club Award for being the most colorful rookies. Both
players figure high in the Wolverines' future.
Senior Kris Manery received a clock decorated with three
hockey pucks. The pucks were ones that Manery scored on, in-
cluding his 100th career goal.
Junior John McCahill was named as the team's captain for
next year.
Bengals blank Mets
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla.-Rookie right-handers Dave Rozema
and Fernando Arroyo permitted just six hits and the Detroit
Tigers shut out the New York Mets 1-0 in exhibition baseball
It was the fourth straight loss and eighth in the last 11 games
for the Mets.
Rozema, a nonroster pitcher, worked the first eight
innings, becoming the first Tiger pitcher to go that distance
this spring. The 20-year-old pitcher was invited to the Tigers'
camp after a 12-4 record at Montgomery of the Southern
League in 1976.
The Tigers scored the game's only run against loser Ray
Sadecki in the third inning when Aurelio Rodriguez singled,
moved to second on a fielder's choice and scored on Ron LeFlore's
single to center.
Sadecki pitched the first five innings for the Mets with Bob
Myrick and Skip Lockwood finishing up.
Celtics corral Bulls
HARTFORD - Forward Sidney Wicks made a key steal with
21 seconds remaining last night, helping the Boston Celtics to-a
90-88 National Basketball Association victory over the Chicago
The loss kept the Bulls in fourth pace, three games behind
second place Pistons, who also lost.

Special To The Daily
The Philadelphia 76ers needed,
clutch foul shooting by guards
Doug Collins and Henry Bibby to
nip a never-say-die Detroit Pis-
tons squad 115-112 last night.
The undermanned Pistons,
playing without Marvin Barnes
and Captain Bob Lanier, re-
ceived career-high performances
from Eric Money and rookie
Leon Douglas.
MONEY, who scored 32 points,
continually bedeviled the 76er1
defense with his medium range
jumpers. Douglas dominated the
three Philadelphia c e n t e r s,
scoring 30 points while grabbing
22 rebounds.
However, while the Pistons re-
lied on- the two. Philadelphia
received balanced scoring from
