Wolverine drought reaches six

The Michigan Daily

By JON MORELAND
It has happened against the to p teams
of the league as well as the bottom, at
home and on the road, on four day's rest
or one, in blowouts or barn-burners. No
matter what the specifics, the Michigan
basketball team has come up short in
each of its last six Big Ten games.
: The losing skein has left the cagers in
a sixth place tie with Ohio State, and
with just two regular season games
remaining, the prospect of significan-
tly improving on this position looks
bleak.
I THE MOST RECENT additions to the
skid were an embarrassing 74-70 loss at
oome to Northwestern February 21,
followed by a pair of setbacks at Iowa
(69-66) and Indiana (98-83) lAst

weekend.
Those two road losses put a damper
on a pair of fabulous performances by
Michigan's all-time scoring leader
Mike McGee. The senior forward can-
ned 29 points in each of the contests and
has been one of the few bright spots
throughout most of the slump.
In the second half of the Iowa game,
McGee hit 12 of 16 shots from the floor,
including a stretch of eight in a row. He
scored 25 of the Wolverines' 38 points
after the intermission, and was the
main reason Michigan wasn't blown out
by the Hawkeyes.
"McGEE WAS unbelievable in the
second half," said Iowa coach Lute
Olson. "When he gets that hot hand, he
can throw 'em in from anywhere in the

field house.
"We had a guy inside his jersey all
night, but we still couldn't stop him."
McGee's 58 points in last weekend's
games leaves him in third place on the
all-time Big Ten scoring list. His total of
1,451 career points leaves him just ten
points short of ex-Purdue great Rick
Mount, who now holds second place.
TWENTY-SEVEN POINTS in
Michigan's last two conference games
will give McGee 1,478 conference points
and catapault him past Minnesota's
Mychal Thompson into the number one
spot. If he remains true to form, McGee
should take over the number one spot
late in Thursday's game against Min-
nesota or early in Saturday's finale
against the Boilermakers.
The losing streak Michigan currently
finds itself in naturally has coach Bill
Frieder more than just a little
frustrated. After the game against the
league-leading Hawkeyes, one of the
members of the press commended
Frieder on the "nice game" his squad
had played.
"Yeah," replied the coach. "That's
what they've said after the last five
Big Ten Standings

now."
THE WOLVERINES followed with its
sixth consecutive "nice" loss two days
later in Bloomington. Michigan played
an inspired first half as it held the lead
for most of the stanza. The Wolverines
began to lose control of the game with
about four minutes left in the half,
however, and went in to the lockerroom
trailing 44-41 at the intermission, still
very much in the game.
In the second half, though, Michigan
found it impossible to contain Indiana's
sophomore guard and All-America
candidate, Isiah Thomas. Thomas
scored 24 second half points to finish
with a career-high 39, and he was
largely responsible for fouling out the
Wolverines' Paul Heuermann, Thad
Garner and McGee.
RECRUITING NOTES: Frieder has
landed a third recruit to the list of
hopefuls that will join the squad next
fall. His most recent prize is Leslie
Rockymore, a 6'4" leaper from Detroit
Southeastern. Rockymore, who will
play guard at Michigan, has gained
fame as a great outside shooter as he
led his team to the Detroit City Cham-
pionship. Rockymore joins Eric Turner
from Flint Central and Greg
Washington from Detroit Western as
prospects for the '81-'82 squad.

By JOE CHAPELLE
Led by Ruth Pickett, Cathleen
O'Brien, and Betsy Neira, who all
qualified to compete in the AIAW
National Championships, to be held in
Palo Alto, Michigan's synchronized
swimming team has garnered first
place finishes in meet after meet this
season. The Wolverines continued their
winning ways last weekend by taking
the top spots at the Northwestern In-
vitational and the Michigan Open
behind the superb performances of the
three standout swimmers.

Last Saturday in Evanston, Pickett
took first in the senior figures followed
by Neira coming in second. In the duet,
O'Brien and Neira teamed up to take
another Michigan first place. And in the
trio event, Neira, Pickett, and O'Brien
garnered yet another winning perfor-
mance.
"They (the other teams at the meet)
were just outshone," said Michigan
coach Joyce Lindemen. "The com-
petition was not really very strong, but
I was very pleased with our performan-
ce. We have better facilities here (at
Michigan) and that makes the differen-
ce," Lindemen continued.
SUNDAY, THE WOLVERINE
women hosted the Michigan Open and
again came away with first place'

finishes in practically every event. The
team's overwhelming success was ex-
pected because it was competing;
against younger swimmers.
"We tried a new concept in inviting.
teams made up of girls under college
age," said Lindemen of the Open.0
"Although they are younger, they did:
provide us with good competition .y
There was one pleasant surprise for.'
the Wolverine swimmers, however,:as
Michigan's 'A' team routine was awarr *
ded a score of 9.7 out of a possible M!0
points. "I was very pleased with the:
result," said Lindemen. "It was a very.
strong performance." The "near-s
perfect" team consisted of Niera1
Pickett, O'Brien, Louann Koval, Becky
Weise, Mary Crumrine, Janice Johnson}
and Brigid Schneider.

Michigan places fourth
as Klasson is dethroned,

By CHUCK JAFFE
Heavyweight Eric Klasson's bid to
capture the heavyweight division title
was foiled by Lou Banach of Iowa, as
the champion pinned Klasson to lead
the Hawkeyes to the Big Ten wrestling
title during yesterday's league meet.
Iowa finished with 126/4 points,
followed by Minnesota's 57 , Wiscon-
sin's 42% and Michigan's 35.
KLASSON, THE defending Big Ten
champion in the heavyweight division,
decisioned Dan Holt of Michigan State,
and Keith Paloucek of Illinois to reach
the semi-finals. In the semis, he faced
Rod Chamberlain of =Indiana. Cham-
berlain entered the tournament leading
the Big Ten in decisions with 36 wins,
but Klasson easily defeated him, 10-4.
Iowa's Barry Davis spoiled
Wolverine wrestler Joe McFarland's
bid to capture the 118-pound division as
the Hawkeye grappler turned in al9-7
decision over the Michigan 118-
pounder. It was the second time this
season that Davis turned back Mc-
Farland.
PAT McKAY, Michigan's 190-
pounder, started slowly. He lost to

Gregg Close of Illinois, 4-2. He then
went into the losers' bracket, where4fiE
pinned Indiana's Dave Langworth,
and decisioned Michigan State's M'rike
Potts to gain his berth in the NCAA
Tournament. McKay defeated Eri
Neily of Ohio State for third place in th
Big Ten.
PINNING IT DOWN: The team
finished its season on February 22 with
a loss to Wisconsin. McFarland,
Klasson, McKay and Nemir Nadhir
were the Wolverines' only point-getters
... Nadhir was a disappointment at the
Big Ten tournament. He was expected
to do well, but was eliminated after
losing his first two matches . . . Bill
Goodill (134 pounds) and Mark Pearson
(142) wrestled for fifth place in the Big
Ten last night, but were turned back by
Keith Saunders (Ind.) and David Henry
(Minn.) respectively. Both grapplers
made strong showings, but lost in the
quarterfinals . . . The first four
finishers in each weight class earn
NCAA tournament bids, so Klasson,
McKay, and McFarland are assured of
a shot at the national championship.
