BY STAN BRADBURY
Special to the Daily
EVANSTON -The comeback kids
have a different type of comeback to
make today when they face the North-
western Wildcats in McGaw Hall. It's
not trying to make up a ten point deficit
with eight minutes left.
It's probably more difficult than that
for a young ball club. The basketball
Wolverines must come back after a
rrriserable loss at the hands of the
visiting Michigari State Spartans Thur-
sday night..
COACH JOHNNY Orr said his team
will be ready to face the 6-10 Wildcats.
Northwestern is 1-6 in Big Ten action
anld in their customary last place. Orr'
said he believes that his team will be
able to bounce back from the one-point
overtime loss and regain the en-
tiusiasm which carried Michigan past

Ohio State a week ago.
"This is a big game for us," said Orr.
"If you look at the Big Ten standings,
you'll see four teams tied at 3-4
(Michigan included) so this is very im-
portant."
Orr added that his club is not
overlooking the Wildcats either.
"They're a good team. They've come
close to winning in the Big Ten and they
beat Michigan State at home. Last
night (Thursday) against Iowa was the
first time they've been blown out of a
game.
"AND A T Northwestern we've
always had problems with them," said
Orr. Last year, Michigan won by two
points on a last-second shot by Alan
Hardy when the Wolverines traveled to
Evanston. '
Northwestern is paced by the play of
6-7 sophomore forward Jim Stack, who
missed almost all of last season with an
injury. Stack is averaging a team high
15.2p.p.g.
Stack is joined in the front line by a
pair of trees; seniors Brian Jung (7-0,
center) and Mike Campbell (6-10, for-
ward).
THIS MEANS that once .aain Paul
Heuerman, standing only at 6-8 in the
Wolverine center spot, will be battling a
big height disadvantage.;
The Northwestern backcourit consists
of Rod Roberson (10.3 p.p.g) and Brian
Gibson (7.9 p.p.g.).
Orr said that the Wolverines have not
had much time to prepare for the taller

opponents, "But we're not so concerned
with what they do. Our main concern is
what we're doing. We have to take con-
trol of the game," Orr said.
Michigan has had a lot of success con-
trolling the games against North-
western in the recent past. The,

Wolverines have won 18 of the last 19
confrontations. Michigan's only loss to
the Wildcats in that time span was in
1977 when the number one-ranked
Wolverines were upset 99-87 at McGaw
Hall.

Matmen annihilate
Boilermakers 30-9
By BUDDY MOOR EHOUSE
The young Michigan grapplers met a Purdue squad that was equally as
young last night at Crisler Arena, and in the end the Wolverines proved to be
dominant, winning 30-9.
Head Wolverine coach Dale Bahr went into the meet with a line-up that
featured four freshmen and three sophomores. Purdue countered with a
squad that saw four frosh and two sophomores wrestling.
In the first match at the 118-lb. level, two of the freshmen, Dale Nasen-
berry of Purdue and the Wolverines' Tom Davids were pitted against each
other. It the end it was Nasenberry who gave the Boilermakers an early lead
by defeating Davids, 8-4.
At 126. sophomore Larry Haughn of Michigan totally dominated Pur-
due's Don Stuckly as he gained a major decision by winning 9-1.
Purdue came back at the 134-lb. level as the Boilers' Jeff Tolbert edged
out Bob Siar, 6-5, in one of the less exciting matches of the evening. That
gave Purdue a 6-4 edge in the team totals, but from then on, Michigan took
the lead and never relinquished it.
At 142, freshmen Lou Milani, who is a walk-on, got the Wolverines on the
winning track by defeating senior Hans Nelson of Purdue, 13-11. Milani, who
was extremely popular with the crowd, impressed Coach Bahr. "Lou is only
a walk-on, but I 'was real happy with the way he wrestled tonight," said
Bahr.
John Beljan kept the Wolverines on the winning road by defeating Pete
Feldmeier, 10-4. Then at 158, freshmen'Tim Fagan showed.his inexperience
as he lost to Purdue's Mike Barker, 10-4.
Nemir Nadhir, who normally wrestles at 158, but was moved to 167 for this
match, had a tough time defeating senior Purdue captain Ron Johns, 7-6.
Nadhir and Johns, who could easily pass for brothers, started the first period
pushing each other before they finally settled down to business. Nadhir was
behind throughout most of the match until he scored two r akedowns in the
final period to take the match.
In the final three weight classes, Michigan totally obliterated any chan-
ce Purdue might have had of winning. At 177, Bill Konovsky beat Purdue's
Kurt Peterson, 15-3, to gain a five point superior decision. Then at 19t1, Bill
Petoskey totally manhandled the Boilermakers' Brian Thompson as he pin-
ned him at 6:35.
Senior Steve Bennett kept the domination flowing as he also recorded a
pin on Jay Allison of Purdue at 4:52, This gave the Wolverines the final 30-9
victory.
Notable in his absence was Steve Fraser, who normally wrestles at 190.
"Steve is cutting weight to get down to 177 for the NCAA's," explained Coach
Bahr. "Ile's at 181 right now and he'll definitely wrestle against Illinois."
Luckily, the Wolverine grapplers didn't need the services of Fraser to
defeat the outmanned Purdue squad.

ByZIKE WERINR,
Coach Stu Isaac called the Indiana
Hoosiers "the biggest challenge to our
supremacy in the Big Ten." This is a
big compliment for the team from
Bloomington, since the Michigan
women's swimming team has not lost a
Big Ten dual meet since January of
1975.
Indeed, Indiana is a very talented
team, boasting Wendy Lee and Jennifer
Hooker, two women who swam in the
1976 summer Olympics in Montreal.
However, the Wolverines will be
ready. For the first time since Christ-
mas, they will be totally healthy and at
full strength.
Two swimmers who have sparked th
Michigan squad lately have been Marie
Palko and Suzanne Anderson. "Marie
and Suzanne are really coming around
now," coach Isaac observed. "They're
starting to swim up to their potential."
The ,two greatest advantages the
Wolverine swimmers have are ex-
perience in key, pressure meets, and
the supremacy of their divers.
"We always save our best efforts for
the big meets," said coach Isaac. By
finishing first and undefeated in the Big
Ten the past four years, the Michigan
swimmers have proved this.
When someone mentions divers'

coach Isaac's face breaks into a wide,
confident smile. "I've said it before,"
Isaac beamed. "We have the best one-
two punch in the country." With the
likes of All-Americans Barb Weinstein
and Julie Bachman on the squad, it is
easy to see why Isaac speaks with such
confidence.
There is no doubt that Saturday's
meet at Matt Mann Pool in Ann Arbor
will be a tight one. As Isaac puts it,
"There will be no messing around this
week. Everyone will be swimming their
strong events."
They had better, or Michigan's long-
-lasting dominance in the Big Ten will be
threatened.

DALLAS (AP) - Ed "Too Tall"
Jones, who left the National Football
League to become a professional boxer,
yesterday denied reports he will return
to the Dallas Cowboys after he com-
pletes two scheduled fights in Jackson,
Miss., and Atlantic City. N.J.
Norm Hitzges, sports producer for
KARC-TV in Los Angeles, quoted a
source close to Jones when he broke the
story during his weekly talk show
yesterday morning on KERA radio in
Dallas.
BUT JO\ES told WJDX radio in
Jackson he had no such plans.
"I'm sure all 2u teams would like to
see me back in uniform. I'm only con-
centrating on one thing right now.
That's boxing and I'm enjoying it,"
WJDX quoted Jones as saying.
Jones also told WFAA-TV in Dallas
he was thinking only about boxing, ad-

ding Thomas "Hollywood" Henderson
may have been Hitzges' source.
"I WAS TOLD Hollywood Henderson
mentioned the two of us going to some
team in a package deal," he said. "I
haven't even spoken to Thomas for
quite some time. . . If it was true, he
probably was joking with some guy in
the Super Bowl. I think the rumor got
started out in ILos Angeles."
David Wolfe, Jones' manager, told
KRLD radio in Dallas that Jones will
not quit.
"If he were planning to play pro foot-
ball, we wouldn't be engaging in any
fights now," Wolfe said.
WOLFE SAID Jones will go to
California after a Saturday night fight
in Jackson with Rocky Gonzalez of San
Antonio, Texas. He said Jones is plan-
ning for a nationally televised bout next
spring.
In February, after fights in Atlantic
City and Jacksonville, Fla., "Jones;
feels he will have fulfilled his financial'
obligation to his adviser. They will have
made money for what they have under-
taken," Hitzges said.
