Streaking hoopsters stop Falcons
A iabethru Friday
By LARRY FREED
A sign of a good team is when it starts
to peak in time for post-season play.
The Michigan women's basketball
team is doing just that, as the cagers
notched their fourth straight win with a
73-60 victory over Bowling Green.
K.D. Harte accounted for more than
half of the Wolverines' points by scoring
10 and dishing out a school record 15
assists in the victory. Diane Dietz once
again led all scorers with 23 points,
while Abby Currier paced the team
with 14 rebounds.
THE WOLVERINES (12-14) will en-
ter the state tournament against
second-seeded University of Detroit
(18-6) at Mt. Pleasant Thursday after-
noon. If the hoopsters are successful,
they will play the winner of the Wayne
State (no. 3 seed)-Central Michigan
Michigan easily defeated Notre
Dame, Ohio State and Purdue over the
past two weeks to finish the Big Ten
season with a 4-5 mark.
Dietz and Penny Neer led the
Wolverines, as they thrashed the
Fighting Irish, 96-65. Neer also
dominated on the boards with a game-
high seven rebounds.
Dietz and Harte helped the cagers
make it two straight as theytied for
scoring honors with 19 points apiece
during their 79-71 win over the
Buckeyes at Crisler Arena. Currier
contributed to the victory with 13

highest finisher, Tom Ernsting, placed
Bob Murray and Bruce Gemmell led
the Michigan tankers with three first
place finishes each. Murray's came in
the freestyle and medley relays, and
the 100 yd. freestyle, while Gemmell -
who also swam on the winning medley
relay squad - captured firsts in the 500
yd. freestyle and the 200 yd. individual
medley as well.
In the diving portion of the meet,
Michigan's Ron Merriott swept the one-
meter event but was tied by MSU's Pat
Picard from the three-meter board.
"At State we needed a good team ef-
fort, but we didn't expect a tough
meet," said Gemmell of the easy win,
which gives the Wolverines an 8-3
The swimmers will be in Milwaukee
later this week (March 5-7) for the Big
Ten Championships, a meet in which,
said Gemmell, "we hope to finish
second behind Indiana."
The Wolverine men's indoor track
team, led by Andrew Bruce and football
standout Butch Woolfolk, literally ran
away from representatives of 14 other
schools at the Central Collegiate Track
Championships held February 19-10 at
the Track and Tennis Building.
Michigan garnered 128% points to
retain the title and was never really
challenged by runnerup Southern
Illinois (90) or third place finisher
Michigan State (75 5/6).
WOOLFOLK, BRUCE and Southern
Illinois standout David Lee turned in
solid performances. Woolfolk placed
first in the 60 yd. dash with a time of
6.42 seconds and came in second in the
300 yd. dash behind Lee with a time of
31.03, while Bruce took first place in the

the Michigan women's swimming team
finally succumbed on the last day to an
Indiana team which Wolverine Coach

The second place finish broke
Michigan's string of five consecutive
Big Ten titles. Isaac was not overly
disappointed, however, because he felt
that Indiana was the favorite going into
the meet. "We really swan very well
