BLUE SPOILERMAKERS?
Cagers 'look up' o Purdue clash

Rookie coach Hyatt
has earned a home

By ALAN FANGER,
Imagine yourself straining your neck
muscles to look up 'at someone who is
four or five inches taller than yourself.
Over long periods of time, it becomes
somewhat discomforting.
Paul Heuerman, one of the "little
skinny kids" who play on the Michigan
basketball team, is faced with+ this
same dilemma in the form of one Joe
Barry Carroll, Purdue's wrecking crew
in the.pivot. Carroll and his Big Ten co-
leading Boilermakers venture into
Crisler Arena tonight for an 8:05 p.m.
encounter with the Wolverines.
THE PAIR have met once before, but
neither man could gain a decisive vic-
tory. Carroll outscored Heuerman 20-
14, while' the Blue center wog the
rebounding war, 7-6. Unfortunatey for
Heuerman, Purdue got the better of the
team battle, 68-61.

That initial confrontation occurred
during the infancy stage of this wild,
wooly Big Ten season. And as Michigan
and Purdue lock horns once again, the
conference race and post-season tour-

five games. Having already lost to
Michigan State Saturday night, the
cagers would be allowed but one slipup
the rest of the way, if Frieder is correct
in his prognostication.
FRIEDER ALSO believes his team
will have to shoot at a torrid clip in or-
der to beat the feisty Boilermakers,
who could return to the NCAA tourney
for the first time in three years.
"They (the Boilermakers) 'get so
many easy baskets and second attem-
pts because of their height, you just
have to shoot well. We have to get the
good shots, hit them, and make about 55
per cent, if we're going to have a chan-
ce against them."
Carroll is joined up front by forwards
Drake Morris and Arnette Hallman,
two strong rebounders who have picked
up the art of shooting. Hallman was
especially -bothersome to the
Wolverines in West Lafayette - he hit
on seven of nine shots from the field and
finished with 16 points, nearly twice his
average. Morris, meanwhile, sports an
11.6 average and a 50 per cent shooting
percentage.
IF PURDUE has a weakness, it lies
in its frequent inability to break a
press. Frieder explained that North-
western and Wisconsin applied full-
court pressure and forced several tur-

novers (the Boilermakers committed 23
of them against Northwestern).
"Hopefully, the pressure will bother
them a little," added Frieder, in-
dicating Michigan will spend some time
in the Purdue backcourt when the
Boilermakers inbound the ball.
WOLVERINE TALES: Mike McGee is
inching closer to winning the Big Ten
scoring title. His average of 22.3 points
per game is .7 better than Michigan
State's Jay Vincent. . . Carroll is sixth
in scoring with a 17.8 mark, but his field
goal percentage is a mediocre 43.2 per
cent ... Saturday's matchup with In-
diana at Crisler has been moved back to
1:30 p.m.
Big Ten Standings
Conference All

By TOM SHAHEEN
Sheri Hyatt is here to stay.
The first-year women's gymnastics
coach plans to be around next October
with another strong squad. This year's
team, currently 9-3, has been quite im-
pressive when compared to last year's
team. Last year's tumblers season-high'
meet score was 128.3; in 12 meets so
far, Hyatt's team has topped this mark
four times.
The season for the coach's en-
thusiasm for next year lies in the fact
that quite a bit of scholarship money is
available to her.
"It should be a great year . for
recruiting. I'm looking at ten high
school athletes now, and four will get
scholarships. Most of them are better
than what we have on the team now,"
said Hyatt.r
While the future looks good for the
Michigan tumblers, there are more
immediate concerns for Coach Hyatt.
First, Michigan will participate in the
state tournament Thursday, February
21 in Ypsilanti. Michigan State, winners
over Hyatt's gymnasts twice this year
should be the only threat. Eastern
Michigan, crippled by injuries this
week, should finish third.
"Whoever is consistent is going to
win," said Hatt. "We have everybody
:>healthy for the first time this season.
Michigan State will feel the pressure
this time."
The outcome of this tournament is
vital to Hyatt's second immediate con-
cern - the regionals, at Champagne on
March 21-22. The team finishing first in
Thursday's meet automatically
receives a regional bid. There are only

11 teams slated for regional action
compared with 16 a year ago.
Miehigan's regional contains teams
from Wisconsin, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois
and, of course, Michigan.
-Should the Wolverines finish below
first place Thursday, the formula for
qualifying for the regionals becomes
complicated. Here's how it works: a
team's four highest scores for the year
are added to twice its state tournament
score; this sum is then divided by six to
give each team a modified average
score. The 10 teams with the highest
averages will receive regional bids.
Michigan's Teresa Bertoncin is given
an excellent chance to capture first
place in the all-around competition. Her
chief competitor is Bonnie Ellis, a very
solid Michigan State performer. Other
Wolverines expected to fare well are
Dana Kempthorn (vault), Diane
McLean (balance beam) and. Angela
Deaver (floor exercise). These girl
will be vying ,for All-State Awards,
given at the tournament for the first
time.
Coach Hyatt, in looking back on her
first year, had nothing but praise for
the Michigan sports bureaucracy.
"We've had good equipment, decent
facilities and the people at Sports In-
formation have been very helpful," she
said.. "I'll definitely be back."
Team members have been impressed.
with the new coach: "She's really wellt
organized," said Dana Kempthorn.
"Coach Hyatt's gotten us off to a great
start," echoed Laurie Miesel.
With prospects for a great recruiting
year, and a seemingly good team at-
titude, Hyatt is surely here to stay.

Hollywood to Saints?

SAN MARCOS, Texas - Russel
Erxleben, place kicker for the New'
Orleans Saints, says a deal is in the.
works to trade him to the Dallas
Cowboys for Thomas "Hollywood"
Henderson, the San Marcos Daily
Record reported yesterday.
However, officials of both teams
denied the report.
"They're trying to get Henderson, so
it looks like they might trade me for
him," Erxleben told Daily Record spor-
tswriter Gregg Echols in Austin over
the weekend.
"I DON'T know if it would work out,
though," the former All-America
kicker at Texas said. "Dallas might not
want me since I make about three times
what most kickers are paid.; They might
not want to pay that much for a
kicker."
However, if veteran quarterback
Roger Staubach decides to retire and
punter Danny White moves into the
starting job, the Cowboys would need a
punter to replace White. Erxleben had
a 45-yard punting average one season at
Texas. k

Erxleben, a native of Seguin, Texas,
said, "This might be a good move; I
just don't know. I'm going to New
Orleans Thursday to discuss, the mat-
ter, so we'll just wait until then and see
what happens."

DETROIT - Evonne Goolagong-
Cawley defeated Peanut Louie, in the
Avon Tennis Championship yesterday
at Cobo Arena, in what Cawley
described as a much wtougher match
than she expected. Louie hit the ball
very hard which resulted in a 2-1lead in
the first set, but in the end succumbed
6-3, 6-1.
PEANUT WAS successful at passing
Evonne at the net, but the 19-year-old
admitted that, as a young pro on thd
tour since September, she has a lot of
things to work on.
Evonne, who likes to come to the net,
said she preferred to stay on the
baseline because Peanut was faster] at
the net. She said getting her first serve
in and keeping her backhand low was
important.
