Just a few words of advice to those
fans planning on attending tonight's
Michigan-Michigan State basketball
game. Bring along a stopwatch and
don't bat an eyelash-for if you do,
you're likely to miss a play. There'll be
that much speed on the court.
Flying up and down court for the
Spartans (6-8, 1-3 in Big Ten play) will
be the explosive backcourt taidem of
senior Keyin Smith (15.3 points per
game) and freshman Sam Vincent (10.5
ppg).
"THEY HAVE great quickness and
speed," said Michigan head coach Bill
Frieder, whose team owns a 1-11 mark.

"We've just got to try to prevent it fr

usually present when two rivals play.
Heathcote and Frieder both point this
out, but the Michigan coach says thata
victory over Michigan State will be no
more gratifying than a win over any
other Big Ten team.
"A win is a win, a loss is a loss," said
Frieder. "I just want to win a game. I
don't care who it's against."
Noting Michigan's nine-game losing
streak, Frieder said, "It's hard for
Michigan State to brag if they beat us,
because everybody has beaten us.

INJURIES CAN'T S TOP BIG TEN CHAMP:

Cahill at home in water

-By JAMES THOMPSON
It was a diving extravaganza.
The Michigan's mens and womens:div-
ing squads swept the competition ver-
sus EMU last night at Matt Mann pool.
With the squads from both schools
having each diver do a total of eleven
dives, from both the one- and three-
meter boards, the match seemed en-
dless. But finally the individual scores
for the men on both the one-and three-
meter boards put Ron Merriott on top
as.the winner.
Merriott, a nationally-ranked diver,
has led the team in the last two years
and is likely to do the same this season.

THE MICHIGAN women did likewise
to their competition. Wolverine Diane
Dudeck captured first on the three-
meter board while accepting second on
the one-meter. The top scorer inr the
one-meter event was Vicki Kimball,
who followed in second on the three-
meter board. Both girls qualified for

the zone qualifiers as did Liz Wright
who took third place in both events.
The reason for holding such a meet
Kimball said was to "get ready.for the
zone qualifiers where each diver does
eleven dives on each board, whereas in.
regular dual meets each diver does nly
six dives."

Michigan swimmer Sue Cahill has
had a few problems with moving
around on land. '
Shi once broke her leg by putting her
foot in a hole as she ran down a hill, and
she broke her foot with a fall off the
winner's platform after she won the
1981 Big Ten 400-yard individual
medley crown. But when she takes to
the water, she moves just fine, and
usually moves faster than her opponen-
ts t
BESIDES HER performance in the
400-yard IM last year, Cahill also
placed high in the Big Ten final stan-
dings in thq 500- and 1650-yard freestyle
events, as well as the 200-yardl breast-
'stroke and 200-yard butterfly events:
She also swam on the fourth-place 800-
yard freestyle relay team.
If Cahill is happy with her perfor-
mance last, year, she is certainly,
keeping it a secret.
"I wasn't really dedicated last year,
and it was really hard on me because I
pride myself on 'improving constantly,
gnd I wasn't," said Cahill. "But over
swim camp (held a month ago), all we
did was swim and sleep so I was able to
concentrate on swimming. I think that
helped me a lot."
MICHIGAN COACH Stu Isaac seems
to agree that there are even better per-
formances ahead for Cahill.
"She really didn't have- that good a
fall," said Isaac of her early season

performance. "But she had a really
good training camp, and she's really
been doing well this month. I look for'
her to have a really good Big Ten-bet-
ter than last year."
Four first-place finishes for Cahill in
this past weekend's 89-60 victory over

reasons.
"We got Tootsie Rolls whenever we
improved, and I saw some trophies and
thought that I would like to win some of
those for myself," explained Cahill.
BUT IT SEEMS clear that she has
generated her own reasons for swim-
ming.
"I'm very goal-oriented," said Cahill.
"There is still a lot left for me to ac-
complish in swimming. And I do not
want to ever see anyone beat my
times."
The talkative and amusing Cahill is
also a bit hard-headed at times. -
"SHE'S STRONG-willed and can be
stubborn," admits Isaac. "And
sometimes that can work against her,
but lately she has been using it to her
advantage. She has contributed a lot in
terms of leadership this year, and I
think that has really helped her swim-
ming."
While she had decided that her
academic goals lie in the direction of
film-video communications, she does
enjoy spending free time writing
poetry. Cahill's rugged swimming
schedule makes it tough 'to live the life
of an average student, but she admits
that "social life gets in there
somehow."
This determined swimmer knows
what she wants from the upcoming Big
Ten championships. "I want to win the
400-yard IM again, and go 1-2 with
Denise Stuntzner in the 200-yard fly,"
said the sophomore standout. "I think
I'm in better shape than last year. I
hope to give a good race to whomever
Indiana puts'nn the 500- and 1650-yard
freestyle."
With her strong will working for her,
she will probably give a good race to
anyone she wants.

The Michigan wrestling team upped its record to 6-2 last night as it came
from behind to defeat Cleveland State, 25-15, at Crisler Arena.
The grapplers trailed 15-13, before 190-pound Pat McKay (4 wins, one loss,
one tie for the season) pinned junior Vince Sakas in the third period. Momen-
ts later, heavyweight Eric Klasson repeated McKay's feat only two minutes
into his match with Mark Sanders to secure the Wolverines' victory.
"WE KNEW THEY were tough in the middleweight classes," said coach
Dale Bahr about their opponents who had beaten the Wolverines last year.
"It's nice to be on the winning side of close matches."
Sophomore sensation Joe McFarland started Michigan on the right track
as he upped his season record to 9-2-2 while whipping freshman John
Velimesis, 25-7.
Cleveland State head Coach Dick Bonacci had, only words of praise for the
118-pound All-American.
"Joe is one of my favorites. He is one of the best, if not the best, wrestler in
his class," said Bonacci, who noted that he knew of McFarland's brilliance'
in high school and had almost succeeded in recruiting him.
"Joe is looking real tough," said Bahr. "He's considered to be the best
"East of the Mississippi."
In the 126-pound division, junior Larry Haughn outscored another fresh-
man, Jerry Urry, 5-0.
Cleveland State's junior transfer Kerry Welling defeated sophomore Bill
Goodill at the 134-pound division by a score of 6-2. That cut Michigan's
margin to five points, 8-3.
AFTER LOU Milaii and-Don Foldesy fought to a draw (11-11), Cleveland
State sophomore Randy Cole scored a 3-2 decision over junior John Beljan at
the 150-pound level.
"John's a streak wrestler who is either hot or cold," assessed Bahr.
"Tonight he just made too many mistakes."
Bahr was very happy over Nemir Nadhir's performance at the 158-pound
division. Nadhir lifted his season record to 17-4 as he outscored Phil Kennedy
10-4. "Phil moved a lot but Nemir didn't lose his cool," said'Bahr, adding
that Nadhir has become much more consistent.
In other matches, freshman Scott Rechsteiner, whom Bahr said has been
having "confidence problems," dropped a 13-4 decision to Mark Johnson. In
the 177-pound class, Cleveland State's Mark Litts scored a 7-3 decision over
freshman Richard Zboray. That put Cleveland temporarily ahead in the
match, 15-13.

Cahill
. ... coming on strong

Ohio State prove that Cahill is coming
on strong. She captured individual fir-
sts in the 500- and 1650-yard freestyle
events, as well as the 200-yard butter-
fly, and swam on the first-place 800-
yard freestyle team.
FIRST PLACE also belongs to Cahill
in three categories in women's swim-
ming. Her time of 17:12:82 in winning
the 1650-yard freestyle this past
weekend is a new pool record. And she
also holds the women's varsity records
in the 1000- and 1650-yard freestyle
events.
Such impressive feats come from
Cahill although she started swimming
'at the relatively late age of 11. She got,
into swimming partly through the in-
fluence of three older brothers who
were swimmers, but there were other

FOLLOWING him in the three-meter
competition were Wolverines Jon
Beach, Mark McMann, and Kent
Ferguson respectively. Ending up with
the lowest scores for EMU were Paul
Watson and Kevin Deroos, respec-
tively. '
In the one-meter event, Ferguson,
Beach, and McMann followed Merriott
in that same order. The Huron par-
ticipants ended up in identical positions
to those of the previous event.
"We did what we wanted to do," said
Wolverinediving coach Dick Kimball.
"We wanted to get the scores so we
could qualify for the NCAA and AIAW
zone qualifiers".
