Michigan cagers zip. by

Akron,

98-69

McGee's 35 leads Wolverines
past overmatched opponents

By BUDDY MOOREHOUSE
The Michigan cagers saved all the
excitement until the end as they whom-
ped an overmanned Akron squad, 98-69,
last night at Crisler Arena.
With 1:27 left in the contest, freshman
M.C. Burton popped in two free throws,,
giving the Wolverines 98 points total.
Surely, the crowd of 7,822 thought, a
minute and a half was more than
enough time to reach the century mark.
Even with four freshmen and a
sophomore on the floor, two measly
points would be easy to get.
BUT AFTER 1:20 had elapsed, the
cagers still had not reached the magic
mark. Akron's Jim Barstow then
graciously fouled 7-2 Jon Antonides, to
give Michigan yet another shot at
reaching 100 points. But even with the
crowd on their feet clapping in unison,
Antonides missed the front end of his
one-and-one, wherein time expired.
The only other real excitement of the
evening for the Crisler crowd came
from Michigan's scoring sensation,
Mike McGee. The senior forward elec-
trified the fans in the first half, pum-
ping in 22 of his game high 35 points,
making several steals and even playing
some good defense - his traditional
weakness.
"We showed some poise and main-
tained our intensity throughout this

game, which is hard to do when you're
playing a team like this," said McGee,
whose 35 points last night gives him a
career total of 1,805, three points away
from moving into second place on the
all-time Wolverine scoring list.
MICHIGAN COACH Bill Frieder up-
ped his career mark to 4-0, and was,
generally pleased with the way his
team played. "I think our starters
played to their potential," said Frieder,
"and in a game like this (against a
weak foe), you don't want them to hot
dog it, I was real pleased with the inten-
sity they showed."
But while the starters played well,
the bench wasn't as strong as Frieder
would have liked. "Our subs were a bit
jittery out there," said Frieder. "But
I'm glad I got a chance to play
everyone. Come January, they won't
get a chance to be on the floor too much,
so it's good they're getting the ex-
perience now."
Michigan shot out to an early lead,
going ahead 25-8 after seven minutes, 15
of the Michigan points belonging to
McGee. The intensity of the Blue squad
kept up as they cruised to a 52-23 half-
time lead..
THE ZIPS came out fighting in the
second stanza, though, putting on a
tougher defensive clamp. This was
evidenced by the fact that both teams
scored 46 points in the second half,
although this was partially due to the
ineffectiveness of the Michigan sub-
stitutes.
Akron was led by guard Wendell
Bates, who tossed in 14 points, and
David Mason, who had ten points and
hauled in seven rebounds.
Michigan freshman Tim McCormick

led both teams in rebounds for -the
second game in a row, pulling in a
game-high ten boards. Thad Garner
was a distant second in scoring with 12
points added to the Michigan cause.
The Wolverines had another reason to
celebrate yesterday, as they appeared
in the national top twenty for the first
time since January 9, 1979. That didn't
seem to matter to the Michigan cagers,
though. "I don't think much about the
rankings now," said McGee. "It doesn't
matter to me so long as we keep playing
well."

Canada Cup. Isaac's goal was to allow
some of the more inexperienced mem-
bers of the team to gain valuable ex-
perience. Thus, six freshmen along
ith one sophomore made the trip to
Woronto.
The Canada Cup proved to be a high
caliber meet attracting many former
olympians in addition to other top.
swimmers from the U.S. and Canada.,
In general, Isaac was very pleased
witlf his crew's performance as many
swimmers placed in the meet in ad:
dition to surpassing national qualifying
times. Leading a promising group of
freshmen, Melinda Copp placed first in
the 100-meter backstroke, breaking the
ational cutoff, and finished second in
e 200-meter backstroke. Sue Cahill

dies of heart failure

By S. SHERBER
Hershel Martin, a 270-pound offensive
tackle at Eastern Michigan University,
died Sunday afternoon from an ap-
parent heart failure while working out
in Warner Gym.
Martin, 19, had complained about
breathing trouble earlier in the after-
noon, but attended a workout at Warren
Gym despite his problem. At 3:40 p.m.
the Eastern Michigan Police received a
all stating a man was having dif-
culties breathing. When they arrived
at the gym, Martin was unconscious.
Attempts by the police and the Yp-
silanti Fire Department to revive Mar-

tin were futile. He was taken to St.
Joseph where he was announced dead
at 4:45 p.m.
Martin, a junior, was a starting
tackle for the EMU football team, until
he injured his leg in the second game of
the season. He had just had the cast
removed from his leg, and was attem-
pting to get back in shape when his
death occurred.
Martin, enrolled in the business
school at EMU, was a graduate of
Detroit Western High School. He was
born on May 3, 1960.
. There will be no autopsy performed
on Martin.
