BODNAR LA YUP DO WNS SPAR TANS IN 0 T w

Blue nips MSU,

By MARK FISCHER
Michigan guard Marty Bodnar drove
through a Michigan State zone and hit
on a high arching left-handed lay up
with 2 seconds left in overtime to give
the Wolverines a thrilling 79-77 victory,
before a sellout crowd at Crisler Arena
last night. '
It was Bodnar's second winning shot
at the buzzer and Michigan's fourth win
in as many extra session contests this
season.
"1 JUST REACT to the situation,"
said Bodnar after the game. "Paul
Heuerman took the ball out of bounds, I
cut, and he saw me. I went in thinking
about taking the quick jumper, but the

lane kept opening up. I didn't know that
it was (6-8 center Ben) Tower coming
over. Yes, I was surprised the lane was
that open."
For a while, though, it looked like
there would be no need for overtime.
The Wolverines led by eight points with
1:23 left in regulation, and looked like
they were going to send their intrastate
Big Ten rivals home early.
A tenaciously pressing MSU five
refused to give up, however, and
several clock-stopping fouls and a
couple Herb Bostic (6 second half poin-
ts) jumpers later, State had cut the lead
to four, 73-69, and had the ball with 33
seconds to go.

TEST PREPARATION CENTERS

I

Although we have been in the test preparation business for
many years, we are new in the Ann Arbor area. We are
convinced we have the finest test preparation course available -
superior instructors, superior materials and superior teaching
methods. But we have found that students tend to patronize the
old 'stand-by' because they have heard the name around. We
would like to have the chance to prove we are better; to become
known as the quality test preparation service in Ann Arbor. We
are therefore willing to take a chance. On any course offered
between now and June, 1981, we offer the following guarantee:
- If you feel that we promised anything we did not deliver, or
- If you feel our course materials are not up-to-date anid reflec-
tive of the questions presented on the test, or
- If you are unhappy with the score on the examination (unless
that score is over the national average', then
Sexton will refund your tuition or continue to help prepare
you for future tests without any additional charge.

HAWKEYES TAKING BLUE LIGHT LY

Blue grapples Iowa powerhouse

By JOHN KERR
Iowa wrestling- coach Dan Gable
doesn't beat around the bush when ex-
plaining what his national powerhouse
Hawkeye wrestling squad hopes to get
out of its weekend road trip to the
Wolverine state.
"We'll use these matches (tonight's
meet against the Wolverines and
tomorrow's match at Michigan State)
to get ready for Oklahoma next week,"
said Gable. "Sure we'll take these two
meets lightly, but we'll be using them
for momentum," he added.

Now hold on a minute. Just who are
these Hawkeye grapplers and how can
they take tonight's meet at Crisler
Arena so lightly? After all, Michigan
has won four straight dual meets and
has a respectable Big Ten record of 4-2.
Well, how are these for credentials:
Seven straight Big Ten titles, three
straight NCAA championships, a dual
meet record of 16-1 this season, number
two ranking in the country by Amateur
Wrestling News, and five All-
Americans on the team. Also the "wor-
st" individual record on the Hawkeye
team belongs to 134-pounder Mark
Trizzino with a "feeble" 14-4-1 slate.
This clearly shows that the Hawkeyes
have built an amateur wrestling
dynasty and have every right to take
Michigan lightly.
But that doesn't mean that the

Wolverines won't be looking to post an
impressive showing against Gable's
grapplers.
"This will be a fun meet for us," said
Wolverine coach Dale Bahr. "All the
pressure will be on Iowa. None of their
guys are unbeatable."
But Bahr is also realistic in his
feelings on tonight's meet. "We're not,
at this time, on the level they are," he
admitted. "But our kids are on an up
tempo right now and they are ready to
wrestle," he said.
The Wolverines' best hopes for vic-
tory are Joe McFarland at 118 pounds
and heavyweight Eric Klasson. Bahr
said that aside from those two he
thought some of Michigan's other con-
sistent wrestlers, such as Pat McKay at
190 pounds and Rob Rechsteiner at 177
pounds would provide good matches for
their Hawkeye counterparts.
