FORMER SPARTAN CHOSEN
By MARK FISCHER
Three last minute free throws
ovded the difference for Michigan
women's cagers last night at Crisler
Arena as they took a thrilling 89-86
overtime victory from a tough 11-10
A smoking Diane Dietz (15 for 26 from
the floor) led the Wolverines with 31
points, but in the end it was two
"quieter" players, Diane Hatch and
Brenda Venhuizen, who won it for the
WITH 50 SECONDS remaining in the
ertime period and the score tied at 86,
Dietz fed Venhuizen inside, where she
was fouled in the act of shooting.
Venhuizen's first free throw hit the rim
eals Cards a loss
and bounced off, but her second toss
filled the hole nicely, sending Michigan
ahead to stay.
The two teams then traded turnovers,
but Louisville missed its final shot, and
Wolverine center Penny Neer corraled
the ball and fired the outlet pass to Hat-
ch with only 15 seconds left.
Hatch then dribbled around until she
was fouled with only three seconds,
remaining in the game. Her two charity
tosses hit nothing but net, icing it for the
Maize and Blue. .f
The Wolverines' chances for a victory
did not seem good near the end of
regulation play, however. The nine
point lead that Michigan held over the
visitors midway through the second
half became a mere memory, as
Louisville pressed, out-rebounded, and
out-shoot their hosts to take a 78-72 lead
with only 40 seconds left to play. It was
then that Dietz went to work, hitting on
a driving, pull-up jumper and a 15
footer to pull her team within 2with just
21 seconds showing on the clock.
BUT THINGS still looked bad for the
Blue, as Louisville's Gayle Horstman
had a chance to double her team's lead
with a pair of free throws. Fortunately
for Michigan, she missed both,
whereupon Hatch pulled off a sen-
sational full court drive to tie the game
at 78 and send it into overtime.
The score in overtime remained close
until the final seconds. Louisville took
the opening tap and the lead on a lay-
up. But Michigan hung tough, backed
by three clutch jumpers by Dietz, the
third of which put the Wolverines out in
front 86-84. Louisville's Regina Carroll
came back quickly with a driving one-
hander to tie it up at 86, setting the
stage for the final three free throws by
The game too was close from the
start. Louisville broke to an early 6-0
lead, but the sharp shooting (56 per
cent) Wolverines battled back behind
Abby Currier's 16 first half points to
take a 33-30 lead at halftime.
IN THE SECOND half, Michigan
built their lead up to nine, but
Louisville, taking advantage of ,their
opponents' foul trouble (Currier, Katie
McNamara, and Tammie Sanders all
fouled out) crashed the boards again
and again, and took the lead with six
minutes left in regulation.
However, as Coach Gloria Soluik en-
thused, "This time the kids were just
not goting to give up."

EAST LANSING - New Athletic
Director Doug Weaver made a stunning
reach into Michigan State's fabled foot-
ball past yesterday and pulled out
Frank "Muddy" Waters of Saginaw
Valley State College to succeed Darryl
Rogers as the Spartans' football coach. -
"This appointment is something I've --
dreamed of for 30 years," said Waters,
56, who at least once before applied to
coach at his alma mater but was turned
down. "I thought it had passed me by."
Waters is the patriarch of a football
family. He lettered at fullback from
1946 through 1949 at Michigan State and
a son, Frank D. Jr., was a Michigan
State wide receiver and running back
for the Spartans from 1966-68. Frank Jr. '
was on his staff at Saginaw Valley.
The announcement by Weaver ended
a search that began two weeks ago
when Rogers and Dr. Joseph Kearney,
the previous athletic director, fled for
jobs at Arizona State.
Waters was recommended by
Weaver, himself a Michigan State foot-
ball player, and approved by MSU API
President M. Cecil Mackey. Frank "Muddy" Waters, director of athletics and head football coach

Waters leaves his twin job as athletic
director and football coach at Saginaw

year record of 180-78-7 to the job.
Weaver praised Waters as "a proven
coach and one of the most respected
men" in the country. He also satisfies
Spartan cravings for one of their own. Se
"He is as Michigan State "as Spartan

Weaver said. "He has the character

WARRIORS END LOSING STREAK
.Pistons oblige Golden St., 111-100
By DREW SHARP
Special to the Daily
PONTIAC-It was a battle between
the two worst teams in the NBA and the
Pistons showed why they are the ar-
mpit of the professional league by
losing to the Golden State Warriors, 111-
00, before a crowd of 5,212 at the
;lverdome last night.
The victory snapped a five game
losing streak for the Warriors. It was
the Pistons second consecutive defeat.
Guard Phil Smith paced the Warrior
attack by hitting a game high 26 points,
his season high, while Bob McAdoo led
the Piston scorers with 25 points.
The Warriors took the lead midway
through the first period and never
relinquished it, altough they gave it a
good shot by committing several tur-
novers. The Pistons, playing true to
form, however, could not capitalize on
Golden State took control of the game
by scoring the first six points of the
fourth period and stretched their lead to
18 points, 97-79, the greatest point dif-
ference of the evening.
Leon Douglas had one of his better
defensive games of the season when he
swept the boards clean for 22 rebounds.
Terry Deurod had 18 points and former
Michigan State star Greg Kelser had 13

ATLANTA-All-time home run king
Henry Aaron, who snubbed an award
commemorating his record 715th
homer as "The Greatest Moment of the
Decade," added fire to the controversy
l3 sterday by claiming he, and not Pete
ose, should have been selected as
"Player of the Decade."
"I don't want this to sound like I have
anything against Pete Rose or his ac-
complishments, because I don't,"
Aaron said. "I. justfeel like what I did in
the '70s was in no way second best to .
any accomplishment of anybody, no

SPORTS BROADCASTERS and
writers and baseball executives par-
cipated in the voting. Rose received
709 points, including 24 first place votes.
Rod Carew of the California Angels was
second with 103 points and 20 firsts.
Aaron was next with 86 points, in-

rookies. They all picked the same night
to have a bad one."
Smith took exception to the fact that
he plays well against the Pistons.
"I get hot occasionally but it happens
more often in' Detroit," said the five
year veteran from the University of San

I've been able to hit on Detroit
