The Michigan Doily

St. Joe's tips B.C.,

BLOOMINGTON (AP) -.Bryan
Warrick hit two free throws with 21
seconds left to erase a one-point deficit
and lift St. Joseph's, Pa., to a 42-41
basketball victory over Boston College
last night in the NCAA Mideast regional
semifinals.
With St. Joseph's traling 41-40,
Warrick was fouled by Martin Clark,
Boston College's freshman forward.
Warrick's first foul shot tied the score
and his second, which bounced around
the rim and finally went through, sent
St. Joseph's one step closer to its second
Final Four appearance in 20 years.
WARRICK SCORED 20 points to pace
the Hawks. John Bagley led Boston
College with 11, including a pair of foul
shots with 46 seconds left that put the
Eagles up 41-40.
Bagley missed an eight-foot jumper
with 10 seconds remaining that could
have won the game for Boston.College,
and freshman center Jay Murphy
missed the followup.
In the scramble for the rebound, St.
Joseph's John Smith was fouled by Rich
Schrigley. However, Smith missed the
first shot of the one-and-one with five
seconds left, and Boston College had
one last chance.
GUARD DWAN Chandler took Mur-
phy's pass just past midcourt, but he
landed straddling the line and the
Hawks retained possession on the over-,
and-back violation.
Boston College, using a very
deliberate style of play, led by five, 31-,
26 after a seven-point run with 10:04 to
play. ,
St. Joseph's, however, battled back
slowly, and Warrick got the Hawks
within one, 35-34, with a steal and a
layup with 3:19 to play.
Wichita St. 66, Kansas 65
NEW ORLEANS (AP)-Reserve

forward Mike Jones hit a 20-foot jumper
with two seconds left in the game last
night to give Wichita State a 66-65
college basketball victory over cross-
state rival Kansas in the NCAA Mid-
west Regional.
Jones, who averaged four points a
game for the regular season, finished
the night with eight points-four of
them in the final minute of play-to
send Wichita State into Sunday's
regional championship game against
the winner of last night's Louisiana
State-Arkansas game.
WICHITA STATE, a four-point un-
derdog, blew a five-point lead five
minutes into the second half, rallied to
go up 60-59 with six minutes to play,
then fell behind 65-62 with 2:07 left in
the game.
Kansas guard Darnell Valentine
missed the chance to increase Kansas'
lead when he missed the front end of a
one-and-one free throw opportunity
with 56 seconds left.
Wichita State brought the ball down-
court and Jones lofted a 22-footer to put
the Shockers within a point..
VALENTINE again had a chance to
give his team the lead when he took an
inbounds pass behind the Shockers
defense that left him wide open 10 feet
from the basket. However, he missed
the layup.
Wichita State killed all but the final
two seconds, then Jones hit his game-
winning 20-footer.
Purdue 81, Duke 69
WEST LAFAYETTE (AP)-Pur-
due's Drake Morris scored 28 points
last night and teammates Brian Walker
and Russell Cross keyed a second-half
surge that carried the Boilermakers to
an 81-69 victory over Duke in he quar-
terfinal round of the National Invitation
Tournament.

'he victory sent Purdue, 20-10, into
the NIT semifinals Monday night at
New York's Madison Square Garden.
DUKE, HITTING 15 of 24 shots from
the field in the first half, built a 31-28
lead by the intermission and held a five-
point edge early in the second half
before the Purdue rally.
The Boilermakers finally tied Duke
at 41 on a free throw by Cross, a 6-foot-
10 freshman. There were two more ties
before a basket by Keith Edmonson and
a fast-break layup and free throw by

42-41
Walker put Purdue ahead to stay with
under eight minutes remaining.
Another three-point play by Morris a
minute later gave the Boilermakers a
57-51 lead, matching their biggest first-
half edge. The Blud Devils came no
closer than five points the rest of the
way.
PURDUE continued to widen the lead
in the closing minutes and a pair of free
throws by reserve Kevin Stallings with
five seconds to go gave Purdue its
biggest lead at 81-67.

PRESS
AZ's San tifer a reminder
of cagers' need for speed
By SCOTT M. LEWIS
Syracuse forward Erich Santifer, the 19-year-old kid from Ann Arbor,
stood at midcourt, his arms raised in exultation. There were only eight
minutes left on the clock Thursday night and his team was ahead of
Michigan, 77-60. Wolverine head coach Bill Frieder had just called a
desperation time out.
As theteams returned to the court, Santifer again threw his fist into the
air, responding to the cheers of 20,659 delirious fans and igniting, in turn, an
even more tumultuous ovation.
Thursday night belonged to Erich Santifer. Twenty-one points, five
rebounds, six assists, and a countless number of smiles, handshakes, and
high-fives. It is true that several heroes emerged for Syracuse during its
National Invitation Tournament 91-76 win over Michigan-senior center Dan
Schayes (22 points), forward Tony Bruin (master of the two-handed slam
dunk), and Leo Rautins (16 points and a game-high 13 rebounds).
No one, however, commanded more attention after the game than San-
tifer. For him, the victory was extra special.
Two years ago, when the 6-4, 180-pound sophomore was finishing his
career at Huron High School during which he received all-state honors,
college coaches from across the country were knocking on Santifer's door.
According to Santifer, Michigan was one of the few Midwestern schools not
to show a great deal of interest in him.
"They didn't really want me, and I didn't want to go to Michigan. I made
that decision my junior year," Santifer told a group of reporters after the
game. "There are no hard feelings involved. Coach Frieder is a great coach.
I have great respect for him and the Michigan players. Bad feelings? No.
Not atoll."
Before one starts to scream over how Michigan and other Big Ten schools
let Santifer "get away" (as one courtside observer put it), it should be noted
that the Ann Arbor native was not considered to be a sure-fire success in
college. Syracuse head coach Jim Boeheim called him a sleeper last year.
This season, although scoring at an impressive 13.4 clip, Santifer still is oc-
casionally plagued by erratic performances.
His sometimes-careless play notwithstanding, Santifer gives Syracuse a
dimension which the 1980-81 Wolverines sorely lacked and which was
decisive in the Orangemen's victory- quickness.
"Once we went into our running game, they couldn't do much with us,"
remarked Boeheim. "I thought quickness would be a factor tonight. It was
important to go out and show them our running game early."
For the Wolverines, it was a familiar refrain-an inability to keep pace
with faster opponents. That Michigan was unable to cash in on opportunities
from the perimeter (the normally reliable Marty Bodnar and Johnny John-
son combined to hit only 7 of 17 shots) made the game even more of an uphill
struggle. Add those factors to a 36-26 rebounding deficit and one begins to
understand how Syracuse was able to blow Michigan out in the second half.
The coup de grace, however, was Michigan's failure to contain any of
Syracuse's starters. Bruin, Santifer and guard Eddie Moss romped their
way past the Wolverines' man-to-man defense, the latter two also suc-
ceeding in dissecting the Michigan zone.
When the Wolverines did manage to seal off the middle, Syracuse turned to
Schayes and Rautins. Schayes, a hulking 6-11, 240-pounder who will never
join his father Dolph in the NBA Hall of Fame, looks like anything but an off-
guard. Thursday night, however, Schayes did for Syracuse what Johnny
Johnson usually does for Michigan-hit the 15-20 footer with regularity. The
Wolverines were caught off guard by Schayes' outside shooting proficiency.
"I was surprised after I made two or three shots they didn't put someone
on me. Every time I got the ball, nobody was there," Schayes said.
To be sure, Michigan did send center Paul Heuerman out on defense to
guard Schayes, but the Syracuse pivot continued to connect from the outer
limits. And if it wasn't Schayes doing the damage, it was Rautins, the 6-8
forward from Canada who strongly considered enrolling at Michigan before
opting for Minnesota. He transferred to Syracuse last year.
Frieder admitted that on defense, his team did not perform the way a
tournament champion must. The Wolverines allowed Syracuse to hit 41 of 57
shots (72 percent), including the first 16 attempts in the second half. After
the intermission the home club shot an astounding 88 percent (21 of 24).
Troubles on defense were nothing new for Michigan. Recall, for instance,
the first Purdue game, when the Boilermakers set a conference record by
making 75 percent from the field. Or the second Indiana game, when Isiah
Thomas scored 39 of his team's 98 points.
The worst display came at home against Ohio State (Michigan surren-
dered 105 points). If Todd Penn can score 24 points, it shouldn't come as a
shock when Erich Santifer scores 21 or Dan Schayes 22.
"Our defense really hurt us. You know, it's been happening all year,"
Frieder said. "They all broke records against us in the Big Ten. Syracuse
really played well and shot incredibly well, but a lot of it had to do with our
defense. You can't play defense like that, and make the number of mistakes
we made on offense, and expect to win."
Nor can Michigan expect to contend with the nation's truly outstanding
teams unless it improves its backcourt quickness. A lot of hustle, heart, and
determination can keep a team competitive-as the Wolverines have
demonstrated the past two seasons-but there is no permanent substitute
for quickness.

final game. HIeuerman was one of five Wolverine seniors who saw their
college careers end on a disappointing note when the Orangemen rolled over
Michigan, 91-?6.
Special to the Dailyr
MIAMI - Junior rightfielder Jim Paciorek blasted a two-run triple and a two-
run homer in the opening game of yesterday's doubleheader, leading Michigan to a
9-3 victory over New York Tech. The Wolverines were shut out in the nightcap,
however, 1-0, as they were held to just three hits.
Michigan jumped out to an early 4-0 lead in the opener as Paciorek connected on
his triple in the first inning and Greg Schulte unloaded an inside-the-park homer in
the second.
TECHRESPONDED WITH one run in the third, fourth and fifth innings,
driving Wolverine starter Scott Dawson from the mound after only one man was
retired in the fifth. Steve Ontiveros then came out of the bullpen to pitch two and 2/
innings of scoreless ball and register his first victory of the season.
Despite allowing only five hits and turning over four double plays, Michigan
came out on the short end of a 1-0 score in the second game. New York Teeh scored
the game's only run in the first inning, stringing together a walk, a single, and a
sacrifice fly to produce the winning run.

SPOR TS OF THE DAILY:
'M' loses football assistant Davis

By RON POLLACK
The Michigan football team will be
missing more than seven graduating
starters next year, as defensive line
coach Tim Davis will not return to the
Wolverines.
The Warren, Ohio native will leave
Michigan and go into private business.
According to an athletic department
spokesperson, no decision has yet been
made reagarding Davis' replacement.
DAVIS PLAYED AT Michigan for
three years (1973-1975) and was a con-
sensus All-Big Ten middle guard in 1974
and 1975 and second team All American
(AP and UPI) in 1975. During his career
he had 254 tackles.
Following his playing days, he served
as a graduate assistant coach at
Michigan for two seasons. He then
moved on to become the defensive line
coach at Miami of Ohio for two years,
under former Wolverine assistant
coach Tom Reed, before returning to

College by a score of 2-1.
Both Reed and Taylor pitched com-
plete games, each allowing only one
run, en route to the victories. Coach
Bob DeCarolis was especially im-
pressed with the performance of Taylor
against Adelphi.
"Taylor pitched a gutty game," said
DeCarolis. "She really hung tough and
made the good pitches when we needed
them."
THE WOLVERINES scored their
only two runs of the second game in the
second inning. With two outs, a single
by Barb Striz, a walk by Taylor and a
two-run triple by Karen Pollard
provided the team with all of the offen-
se it needed.
"It was really good to see the team
play so aggressive. They played
super," said DeCarolis. "It was a real
exciting game to play in. It was playoff
type atmosphere and we had a big
crowd."

ming Championships, Michigan is tied
with Houston for 19th place with 32
points.
IN THE ONE-METER diving finals,
the Wolverines' Julie Bachman and
Vicki Kimball finished eighth and ninth
respectively. In addition, both have
qualified for today's three-meter semi-
finals, with Kimball currently in 11th
place and Bachman in 15th.
Another Wolverine, Denise Stunzner,
finished tenth in the 200 butterfly with a
time of 2:03.29. She qualified for the
consolation finals, where the best she
can finish is ninth.
Sych hros third
Special to the Daily
DENVER-The Michigan syn-
chronized swimming team currently is
in third place after the preliminaries of
the Junior ,.ational Synchronized
Swimming Championships. In the solo
division; the Wolverines' Cathy O'brien

State University football coach Fran
Kush didn't commit battery by pun-
ching his one-time punter Kevin
Rutledge during a game and didn't
defraud Rutledge through scholarship
misrepresentation, a jury decided
yesterday.
THE JURY. OF six women and two
men, once deadlocked on the punching
issue, returned its decision after
Maricopa County Superior Court Judge
Thomas Kleinschmidt said he would
accept five as a majority, rather than
the six votes he had required earlier i
the day.
Kush, now the coach for the Canadian
Football League's Hamilton Tiger-
Cats, didn't change expression as the
decisions were read.
