Heiden
hockey
bound
OSLO, Norway (AP)-Eric Heiden,
who won five speed skating gold medals
at last month's Olympic Games, said
yesterday he would do his future
skating as an ice hockey player.
Heiden, who previously had
announced his retirement from
competitive speed skating following the
current winter season, said he will play
hockey for Manglerud-Star, a first
division team Oslo team, next season.
He plans to enroll at the Norwegian
Sports University, according to the Oslo
newspaper Verdensgang.
Earlier, the 21-year-old skater from
Madison, Wis., had said he would join
the Norwegian Grenland Cycling Club,
which includes some of the country's
best amateur cyclists.
During the Games, Heiden was
quoted as saying that all he wanted to
do after the Olympics was to go
backpacking, cycling and play hockey.
Hockey is not a new sport for Heiden.
He played the game as a schoolboy and
was a linemate of Mark Johnson, who
played center on the U.S. gold medal
hockey team at Lake Placid.
Bob Johnson, Mark's father and
coach of the hockey team at the
University of Wisconsin, reportedly
offered Heiden .a scholarship to play
there. Heiden is a third year pre-med
student at Wisconsin.

Tankers go

By MIKE WERNER
The Michigan women's swimming team, which
breezed through the regular season and won the Big Ten
Championship meet for the fifth year in a row, has
reached its final plateau. The AIAW National
Championships will be held today and every day until
Sunday, March 23, and 11 members from the talented
Blue squad have made the trip to Las Vegas to compete.
"Naturally, we're all very excited to be here," said
diver Julie Bachman. "We've been practicing hard and
things are really shaping up."
Bachman, whose coach Stu Isaac calls "one of the best
divers in the country" won both the one-meter and three-
meter springboard diving events at the Big Ten
Championships. When assessing her chances this week
Bachman admits "I'll have to be at my best to win."

for broke
Bachman is accompanied by Barb Weinstein, another
liver, and a host of swimmers including "record
etting" tankers Barb DonCarlos and Kathy Kooser.
)onCarlos set her marks in both the 100-yard and 200-
ard backstroke events while Kooser established a
iew Big Ten record in the 200-yard breaststroke.
Other Wolverine standouts who qualified for the
[ational Championships are Monika Scheff (100-yard
)utterfly), freshpersons Lisa Larsen and Carolyn
lymer, and the relay team of Kim Olsen, Suzanne
.nderson, Marion Stanwood and Kim Groleau (800-yard
'ee style relay).
No matter what happens this weekend in Las Vegas,
his was another exceptional season for the Michigan
omen's swimming team. Coach Stu Isaac has taken a

NEW YORK (AP)-The Big Ten
Conference isn't just for big, brawny
football players anymore; it's also for
big basketball players. Like the big
timber that plays for Minnesota, which
will battle Virginia tonight in the finals
of the 43rd National Invitation
Tournament.
In the past few years, while the Big
Ten's football image has been tarnished
by repeated losses in the Rose Bowl, the
conference has been building its
basketball reputation.
"We got three of the final six this year
and last year," said Minnesota Coach
Jim Dutcher, referring to Purdue and

Iowa as Final Four survivors in the
NCAA Tournament this year, along
with Minnesota in the NIT.
The Gophers finished in a fourth-
place tie with Iowa with 10-8 Big Ten
records, one game behind Purdue's 11-7
conference mark. Indiana and Ohio
State also received NCAA bids, while
Michigan, Illinois and Minnesota were
picked by the NIT.
"But the successes haven't been just
of recent origin; only the recognition
has," said Dutcher, ticking off NCAA
finalists Michigan State, Indiana and
Michigan since 1976.' "Tough
interconference play against good
teams hardens you."
And pro scouts have concurred that
Big Ten basketball isn't just the football
off-season any longer. For the past four
years, the No. 1 pick in the National
Basketball Association draft has come
from the Big Ten-Scott May of NCAA
champion Indiana in 1976, Kent Benson
of Indiana in 1977, Mychal Thompson of
Minnesota in 1978 and Earvin Johnson
of NCAA titlist Michigan State in 1979.
"And if Joe Barry Carroll of Purdue
goes first this year, it will make five,"
said Dutcher.
Dutcher has a blue-chipper of his
own. Center Kevin McHale has first-
round draft pick stamped all over him.
The 6-foot-11 senior led the 21-10
Gophers in points (17.7) and rebounds
(8.9). He normally guards the
opposition's top inside threat. "He's our
defensive stopper," said Dutcher, who
shared a press conference podium with
Virginia Coach Terry Holland Tuesday.
Dutcher indicated McHale would be
keying on Ralph Sampson, Virginia's 7-
4 freshman sensation who scored 26
points, picked off 15 rebounds and
blocked four shots Monday night in the
Cavaliers' 90-71 semifinal rout of
Nevada-Las Vegas.
"Well try to keep the ball away from
Sampson," said Dutcher. "We'll try to
prevent him from getting into choice
scoring position."

_.....-

Sampson, who is expected to return to
Virginia and not turn pro, has exceeded
Holland's expectations. "Early in the
season, he didn't concern himself with
offense so much. He knew he could
score, so he worked on his defense and
shot-blocking-and it shows now,''
Holland said.
Minnesota, which led the Big Ten in
field goal percentage this season, can
bring in a big freshman center of its
own-7-2 Randy Breuer, who came off
the bench to score 24 points and grab
nine rebounds in the Gophers' 65-63
triumph over Big Ten rival Illinois
Monday night.
When Breuer came in, McHale was
shifted to forward. Gary Holmes, at 6-
10, played the other forward spot,
prompting Holland to crack after the
game that "Minnesota looked more like
the Russians tonight."
While the Big Ten has been
blossoming, the Atlantic Coast
Conference has been slipping
somewhat. The ACC, a hotbed of
college basketball, has won the NCAA
basketball title only twice-North
Carolina in 1957 and North Carolina
State in 1974.
Dutcher, whose club lost twice to
Iowa and split a .pair of games with
Purdue this season, relishes playing an
ACC school. "It's a natural rivalry," he
said. "We're competing for ratings,
publicity and recruits."
One recruit he lost was Jeff Lamp,
the 6-6 junior swingman who scored 30
points Monday night.
"My final decision came down to
three schools-Virginia, Indiana and
Minnesota," said Lamp. "My parents
live in Minnesota, so I decided to get
away."
New Duke coach
DURHAM, N.C. (AP)-Army Coach
Mike Krzyzewski has been chosen to
become head basketball coach at Duke
University, the Associated Press

learned yesterday.
Krzyzewski's appointment was to be
announced later Tuesday at a news
conference on the Duke campus.
He will succeed Bill Foster, who has
resigned to become head coach at the
University of South Carolina.
In five years at Army Krzyzewski, 32,
compiled a record of 73-59. His 1979-80
team had a 9-17 record.
Tigers 5, Astros 4
COCOA, Fla. - Dave Stegman drove
in Tom Brookens with the winning run
on a ninth-inning sacrifice fly to center
field the Detroit Tigers earned a 5-4
comeback exhibition baseball victory
over the Houston Astros.
The Tigers trailed 4-3 going into the
ninth when Rick Leach walked and
scored the tying run on successive
singles by Brookens and Lynn Jones.
HOUSTON SCORED all of its runs in
the first inning off Detroit starter Milt
Wilcox as Terry Puhl doubled and Jeff
Leonard tripled to key the rally.
Detroit reliever Roger Weaver
picked up his first victory of the spring
while Houston's Brent Strom suffered
the defeat.
Cleveland 108, Pistons 107
PONTIAC - Randy. Smith's 20-foot
jumper with one second to play in over-
time last night lifted the Cleveland
Cavaliers past the Detroit Pistons 108-
107 for their sixth straight National
Basketball Association victory.
