Sampson slays..
but Blue stands tall
By MARK MIHANOVIC
C HALK ONE up for Goliath.
Virginia freshman Ralph Sampson, at 7-4 and still growing, literally
dropped 26 points into the basket, as the Cavaliers played what some
courtside observers termed their best game of the year in whipping
Michigan Thursday night, 79-68.
VIRGINIA COULD DO nothing wrong in the first half, connecting on a
mind-boggling 76 percent from the floor (19 or 25) and sinking five of seven
charity tosses.
Sampson was six of nine from in'side, and when Michigan converged its
zone into the middle, Jeff Lamp (three for three) and Lee Raker (three for
four) did their stuff from the perimeter.
Stil, the Wolverines were only eight points down at halftime, a fact which
Virginia coach Terry Holland admitted after the game had him more than
mildly concerned.
BUT, DESPITE A SECOND half of vintage Johnny Johnson, in which he
connected on six of seven I-o-o-ng jumpers, the Blue cagers never were able
to catch the Cavaliers and were finished off by a pair of Raker free throws
which made the score 68-56 with 4:08 remaining in the season.
Virginia had too much poise.
Virginia had too much crowd: 9,000 screaming lunatics (of which maybe
100 were doing their screaming for the guys in Blue) who filled dome-shaped
University Hall, located on the outskirts of Virgiia's beautiful, rolling
campus.
BUT MOST OF ALL, Virginia had too much Sampson.
It had finally happened. Over and over again it had been said that
Michigan couldn't win with a 6-8, 200-pound center. Ohio State, with 6-10, 240-
pound Herb Williams, left Ann Arbor one game worse off than when they
came in. The same for Purdue and 7-1, 240-pound Joe Barry Carroll. Paul.
Heuerman held his own against both big men.
But the eight-inch height disadvantage he encountered with Sampson
proved to be overwhelming. To get a picture of the situation, envision Keith
Smith trying to guard Heuerman inside. Sampson gave Heuerman the
message early by rejecting a couple of attempts, and the Wolverine
pivotman ended up with three rebounds and a four-of -13 shooting
performance.
BUT TO DWELL on the final loss would not be fair to a Michigan team
that fulfilled every aspect of its potential. Oh sure, the players and coaches
will tell you that if they had gotten a break here or if that guy had played well
there, the Wolverines could have won several more ballgames. And to an
extent, they're right.
As a team, however, considering the talent and experience they
possessed at the start of the campaign, they would seem to have squeezed
every last ounce of potential out of their respective bodies.
Next year there will be greater potential to tap. The only loss to
graduation that Michigan suffers is that of co-captain Mark Lozier.
WITH THE GRADUATION of Purdue's Carroll and possible NBA
defection of the Buckeyes' Williams, Heuerman could conceivably become
one of the top two or three centers in the conference. Mike McGee decided
that he wanted to be a complete player this season and went a long way
towards achieving that goal; if a big pro contract doesn't lure him away, he
is All-America material. Thad Garner will be a year better and stronger; the
key for him is to maintain his zest for basketball.
The current group of incoming freshmen (Dean Hopson, Jon Antonides,
and M.C. Burton III) aren't likely to make a big splash, but Johnny Orr's
other major hopefuls, Tim McCormick and. Derek Harper, are a different
story.
BUT LET'S BACKTRACK to Thursday night. As I was scrambling and
scribbling out my story, a Virginia fan approached me. "Are you from
Michigan?" the woman inquired.
"Yeah," I replied. More scrambling g
"Well, I just want you to know, I think your team has a lotof class.'
"Yeah." More scribbling.
"THAT NUMBER 45," she continued, "he was behind by ten points with
three minutes left, and he smiled and helped our boy up off the floor. That's
class. We didn't do that in the ACC Tournament. He's a-champion."
I stopped scrambling ... stopped scribbling. "Yes, ma'am, you're right.
Thank you very much."
Neither Thad Garner nor any of the other Wolverines will receive a Big
Ten or NIT title trophy. It's just as well, though, because the award given by
that Virginia fan doesn't leave much room on the mantlepiece for anything
else.

Special to the Daily
DETROIT-Two freshmen, Michael
Carter and Carl Lewis highlighted the
first night of action in the NCAA Indoor
Track and Field Championships held
last night at Joe Louis Arena.
Lewis, from Houston, demolished the
competition in the long jump with a
leap of 26' 4 1/2" . Michigan so omore
James Ross finished seventh with a
jump of 24' 3%", missing All-American
status by a mere three-quarters of an
inch.
IN THE SHIOT put, precompetition-
favorite Carter dominated with an
overpowering throw of 67' 71/2", which
fell less than three inches short of the
meet record held by Hans Hoglund of
University of Texas-El Paso.
The three mile race was won by
Solomon Chebor, from Fairleigh, with a
time of 13:21:00. He used a blistering
last lap kick to overcome a strong field
dominated by runners from UTEP, as
four of the ten finalists were from that
school. Chebor stayed behind the
leaders during the early stages of the
race and in the final quarter mile
rushed by defending champion Michael
Musyoki of UTEP. Musyoki finished the
race in second place with a time of
13:22:08. Ironically, only one of the top
six finishers, all of whom acquired All-
American status,was an American.
That man, Alan Scharsu of Penn State,
finished fourth in 13:24:33. Sanya

Owalbi of Kansas gained a victory in
the finals of the triple jump with his 54'
31/" leap, edging Hoosier Robert Can-
non by just three inches.
Princeton's David Pellegrini won the
35-pound weight throw with a heave of
69'3%14", helping to continue a tradition
of strong showings by Ivy League
schools in this event. Three of the top
six positions were claimed by athletes
from the Ivy League.
A great deal of confusion was caused
when the automatic timing
malfunctioned during the 440-yard
dash. The manual timing used instead
caused a number of runners to have
identical times. Tennessee's Anthony
Blair and Bert Cameron, from UTEP,
tied for first place with 48:07. A four-
way tie for fourth place at 49:01 required
the scoring to.be split between seven
runners instead of the customary six.
THE 880-YARD RUN was won by
defending champion, Evans White,
from Prairie View, with a time okf
1:52:04.
Michigan's qualifiers for today's
finals include Mike Lattany in the high
jump and the distance medley team of
Tim Thomas, Ted Dobson, Dan Beck
and Dan Heikkinen, who won their heat
with a time of 9:53:09. Marshall Parks
qualified for the semi-finals in the 60-
yard high hurdles.

LAKELAND (UPI)-The Detroit
Tigers announced yesterday they have
acquired veteran catcher Duffy Dyer
from the Montreal Expos in a straight
player trade.
The Tigers gave up infielder Jerry
Manuel in exchange for Dyer, who has
been in the National League since 1969.
DYER, 34, PLAYED with the New
York Mets from 1969-74 and was a
member of the club's 1962 World Series
championship team. He also played
with the 1973 Mets team that won the
National League pennant.
He played with the Pittsburgh
Pirates from 1975-78 and spent the 1979
season with Montreal.

Manuel, 26, was the Tigers' No. 1
draft choice in 1972. He played one year
for the Detroit club, in 1976, but
otherwise has been relegated to the
Tigers' American Association farm
club at Evansville, Ind.

Denise Dreffs said she was shocked
to see her name in yesterday's Ann
Arbor News. Dreffs was among six all-
conference volleyball players selected
to the Tri-County All-Conference squad.
"IT WAS a complete surprise," said
Dreffs, a Whitmore Lake native. "I'm
glad the other coaches thought I was
competitive enough to deserve this."
