MCGEE POPS IN 30
Cagers flash by Kent State, 97-72
By MARK FISCHER
Mike McGee moved into second place
on the Michigan career scoring list as
the Blue cagers coasted over the Kent
State Golden Flashes, 97-72, before
10,122 fans at Crisler Arena last night.
With 7:51 left in the first half, McGee
took a pass from Mark Bodnar and net-
ted a lay-up to bypass Rudy Tom-
janovich on the all-time list. With that
out of the way, the 6-5 senior forward
proceeded to work toward first place,
hitting on a batch of fast break layups,
two dunks, a couple driving one-
handers, and only one outside jumper.
McGee went on to sink 13 of 19 from the
floor for a game high before he fouled
out midway through the second half.
McGee's performance provided the
major excitement of the night,
however, as the overmatched Flashes
were never in the game.
Play was sloppy in the early going, as
the two teams combined to commit 22
first-half turnovers. In one two-minute
stretch, in fact, Michigan threw the ball
away three times in a row. And sure
enough, when Thad Garner finally
broke that string of slip-ups with a fast-
break two-hand slam, he was assessed
a technical foul for hanging on the rim.
Nevertheless, the Wolverines had lit-
tle trouble pulling ahead of the visitors
from Kent State. Out-rebounding and
out-running the smaller opponents, the
Blue cagers were never behind.
Leading 8-5 five minutes into the
game, Michigan proceeded to put the
game out of reach, outscoring Kent
State 22-8, to go up by 19 with five
minutes remaining in the half.

scoring 36 points last night as the Atlan-

Basketball Association losing streak on
Drew, who entered the game with a
27.6 average in his last eight outings, hit
22 points in the first half and then made
eight straight late in the fourth period
to ward off a roaring Detroit comeback.
The Hawks, whose only previous road
victory this season was in Detroit on
Oct. 18, shot in front 79-59 with 2:24 left
in the third period before the Pistons
exploded with 15 consecutive points
over the next 5:43 to cut the gap to 79-74.
Two baskets by Phil Hubbard started
the Detroit uprising and then Terry
Tyler and Larry Drew combined to
later pull Detroit to within 92-88 of the
Hawks with 2:30 to go. Drew hit three
straight baskets to settle the issue.

As the second half began, the Blue
hoopsters picked up where they left off,
hitting the first four buckets of the half,
six of which came from McGee.

Hoopsters slip by CMU,
By DAN NEWMAN
Michigan's women's basketball team
showed that it might surprise its own
players as well as some fans as the
Wolverines won their third consecutive
victory Tuesday night by rallying from
a nine-point deficit to defeat Central
Michigan's Chippewas, 84-83, at Mount
"It was a really exciting game," said
freshman sensation Lori Gnatkowski,
Who pumped in 19 points for the win-
ners. "We really wanted to win bad and
at halftime we really got ourselves
The Wolverines had to overcome a 50-
41, halftime deficit and thwart a furious
comeback attempt by CMU which saw
Chippewa freshman Karen Waters
miss on a shot at the buzzer.

with 25 points, including a jumper with
3:54 remaining that put the Wolverines
ahead to stay, 79-78.
"We played really good," commen-
ted Gnatkowski. "If we continue to play
well, we'll have a chance at winning the
state title. But a lot depends on our fast-
break offense and our defense."
Michigan implemented a ball-
hawking pressure defense on the Chip-
pewas which forced some crucial tur-
novers down the stretch run. Six-foot
five-inch center Patrice Donovan
played a key role on defense as she
blocked five Chippewa shots.
Coach Gloria Soluk said earlier in the
season that she hoped the team can im-
prove on last year's 8-20 record and
finish above .500. Of course, it remains
to be seen if the loss of junior Katy Mc-
Namara, who quit last week, will be
detrimental to the team's chances.
"The loss of Katy will hurt some,"
said one player. "She had some really
