Hoopsters defeat

By KEVIN ANKOVIAK
There were no cries of boring from
the stands of Crisler Arena last night,
as the Michigan women cagers slipped
by Eastern Michigan 80-76. The
Wolverines both outrebounded and out-
shot the Hurons on the way to their
second win in their last six tries.
Michigan took early control of the
game, scoring 10 unanswered points'
following the opening tipoff. Midway
through the half, however, the
Wolverines seemed to tire, as Michigan
committed many of its 14 first-half tur-
novers in the closing minutes. The

Dietz, Harte lead 'M'
women to 80-76 win

Hurons scored seven straight points to
cut thdMichigan lead in half.
MICHIGAN, sparked by its 53-
percent shooting performance, though,
still managed to go into the locker room
with a 40-35 lead.
In the second half, however, the tem-
po of the game started to pick up.
Eastern took the tip and then proceeded
to take the lead as turnovers continued
to plague Michigan. The Wolverines
turned the ball over six times in the fir-
st four minutes and relenquished the
lead for the first time in the contest.
Seniorco-captain Diana Dietz. then
hit on four straight attempts on the way
to a 30-point, 10 rebound performance to
put the Wolverines back on top.
Fatigue, howevero again struck the,

cagers.
IN ONE FIVE minute stretch, the
Hurons outscored the Wolverines 14-6
and took the lead again. Michigan,
though, rebounded back. After
losing sophomore guard Lori
Gnatkowski to her fifth personal foul,
the Wolverines once again displayed
solid defense and aggressive offensive.
With five minutes to play, center
Patrice Donovan hit on a ten foot jum-
per to tie the game at 69.
It was again tied at 71 when Eastern
coach Kathy Hart called for a time out.
Following the time out Michigan tallied
five straight points to secure the vic-
tory.
The Wolverine scoring attack was
paced by forwards Dietz and Peg Har-

MU
te, who scored 26 points. Also in double
figures was senior center Patrice
Donovan with 11.
FOR EASTERN Michigan, senior
guard Laurie Byrd had 29 points while
senior forward Denise Allen finished
with 12. Michigan outrebounded the
Hurons 48-43 while turning the ball over
24 times to Eastern's 21. The
Wolverines out shot the Hurons from
the field 47 to 39 percent, but Eastern
fared better from the line, 69 to 56
percent.
The victory improved Michigan's
record to 11-6 for the season, while
dropping Eastern Michigan's to a 9-6
mark.
Michigan's next two home games are
this Saturday against Wayne State at 2
p.m. and February 6 against Detroit at
4p.m.

McFarland
ird the top

f0

By DAN NEWMAN
The kid seems innocent enough. He
stands just 5-4 and weighs only 118
pounds. But don't let appeaances fool
you. This innocent looking kid is
sophomore Joe McFarland, who is an
animal on the wrestling mats as he
skillfully manages to whip opponent af-
ter opponent with the greatest of ease.
"McFarland's the best wrestler in the
nation for his weight class," said
sophomore Mike DerGarabedian. "The,
only ones that might not agree are the
other few top wrestlers in his weight
class."
IF ANYONE should be qualified to
judge McFarland's wrestling ability it
would be DerGarabedian, since he is
*cFarland's partner in practice.
"No one has wrestled with him as
much," said DerGarabedian, who ad-
ded that McFarland's greatest
stre.ngths are his intensity,
preparation, and desire to win.
As a freshman, McFarland gained
All-American status while posting a 32-
8-1 overall record which was best on the
squad. This season he has improved
and has dropped only two decisions in
24 matches. McFarland is nationally
aranked in the top three for his weight
class and last week was selected to
start for the East all-star squad.
HIS COACH, Dale Bahr, only has
words of praise for this North Olm-
stead, Ohio native. "Joe is considered
the best wrestler on this side of the
Mississippi."
McFarland is humble about his talen-
ts and he attributes much of his success
to hard work in practice. "I've spent a
ot of smelly afternoons in the wrestling
oom," said McFarlanl. "I've also
been fortunate to have guys (in both
high school and at Michigan) that can
give me a tough workout in practice."
McFarland handled the transition
from' high school to college with
remarkable ease, as he has managed to
chalk up some incredible early accom-
plishments. During his rookie cam-
paign, McFarland placed a close
second in the Big Ten and fifth in the
WCAA's. He also took first in last year's
Ohio Open and won the prestigious

Penn State Invitational this year.
MCFARLAND feels his early
collegiate success inay be credited to
his style of wrestling. "I just wentinto a
match last year) with the belief that I
had nothing to lose," explained Mc-
Farland. "But after a few wins, I
gained some confidence and you might
say I became greedy and wanted to win
every match."
Most of McFarland's opponents are
aware of his stats, but what probably
isn't so evident is McFarland's mental'
toughness apd determination. This is
what Bahr said makes McFarland so
difficult to beat.
"I think it's important to really take
it to my opponent in the first two roun-
ds," McFarland commented. "My im-
mediate goal in every match is to get
the first takedown."
His teammates and coaches aren't
the only ones who recognize Mc-
Farland's brilliance on the mats. "Joe
is one of my favorites to watch," said
Cleveland State head coach Dick
Bonacci, who worked hard to recruit
McFarland and claims he almost got
him. "Joe is definitely one of-if not the
best-in the nation for his weight
class.
IT'S FRIGHTENING to think that
McFarland is continually' developing,
but he claims that he still has a way to
go. "I've developed a lot since I first
came here and I'll keep developing
even when I'm a senior."
In comparison to last year; Mc-
Farland believes that he has "more
confidence and greater intensity" as a
sophomore.
Obviously McFarland has not been
spoiled by success. His goal is to win the
nationals and admits, "it would be
sweet if I could win it this year."
HIS SPARRING partner appears to
have even more confidence. in Joe's
chances for a national championship.
"This year he should be national cham-
pion without a doubt," assessed
DerGarabedian. "If he doesn't win it at
least once in the next few years then it
will be a real waste of talent."
However, McFarland doesn't have
much time to discuss his success or for

that matter his shot at a national
championship. You see, McFarland has
to work on his bottom position, which he
claims is his weakness. "It needs
work," he says in all seriousness.
And it is no wonder that the bottom
position isn't one of McFarland's
strengths. Joe McFarland, you must
understand, is used to always being on
top of his opponents.
