KALAMAZOO- Freshman Peg Har-
te and senior Diane Dietz combined for
46 points last night to lead the Michigan
women's basketball team to a 77-64 vic-
tory over Western Michigan, in
The Wolverines led by four at the
half, 34-30 , .and never looked back as
they extended their record to 13-6.
Western Michigan cut the lead to one
point early in the second half, but
Michigan fought off the rally, as Dietz
and Harte pumped in 16 and 10 points,
respectively, in the stanza.
THE BRONCOS, whose record fell to
6-13 with the defeat, were led by Sheri1
Wegmer and Kim Wordem, each with
14 points. Leslie Babe contributed 13
points to the Broncos losing effort.
The 13 wins by Michigan ties the
Wolverine" season record for victories,
which was set back in 1978.
The Wolverines' next game is Satur-
day against the University of Detroit at
4:00 p.m. in Crisler Arena.

The 6-9 Lansing Eastern center has

leaning toward the Wolverines.
Henderson is averaging 23.9 points
per game in leading Lansing Eastern to
a 13-1 record. The 13 victories include a
win over then-undefeated and top-
ranked Flint Central late last month.

last month to announce his decision, but

Last year, Henderson and Michigan

Michigan State tournament, where it lost:

In the first team meet of its season,
the Michigan synchronized swim team
finished third last Saturday night in the
College Association Meet at Columbus,
behind the nation's traditional top
teams,Ohio State and Arizona. "We did
very well, as I expected," said Joyce
Lindeman, coach of the Wolverine
team. "In fact, we did better than ex-
pected because this was our first
Ohio State took first place with 98
points, followed by Arizona with 92, and
Michigan with 89. Michigan State and
Walsh College finished far back in four-
th and fifth places.
MICHIGAN'S 89-point performance
was highlighted by the fourth-place
finishes of Mary Crumrine in the solo
competition, Kathy O'Brien and Betsy
Neira in the duet, and Cathy Reed, Jill
Swanson, and Crumrine in the trio.
Freshmen Linda Printz and Erin
O'Shaughnessy also performed
creditably in the duet.
Saturday night's impressive finish
should be the first of many for
Michigan. Lindeman foresees a con-
tinuation of past Wolverine success for
the 1982 campaign. "Our 'A' team is
the best we've ever had, talent-wise and
choreography-wise. We hope to finish
third in the nation again this year,
although' Stanford and Virginia have
been pushing us. We play a good Rich-
mond team in two weeks, and we
haven't played them before."
The team performs at Columbus
again on Saturday in the U.S./Canadian
Invitational in which it will face two
Canadian teams, Western Ontario and
Carleton, in addition to Ohio State. The
Arizona meet scheduled for later this
season has been cancelled due to a lack
of travel funds for the Wolverines.
"The athletic department helps us as
much as they can and we do our own
fund-raising, but Arizona was just too
far to go for a weekend meet,"Lin-
demap explained. Having competed
against Arizona once already should
only serve to- help the Wolverines,
however. "We've competed with the
best and that will help us," Lindeman
said. "We just hope people will come
and see us.'' -RICHARD DEMAK

The following is a summary of some of the games played last week in the
intramural 'A' Division.
Lewis House 48, Abeng 45: Tim Hall and Rick Katz combined for 28 points
to lift Lewis House over Abeng in a battle of unbeatens. Lewis jumped out to
an early 12-point lead before Abeng was able to cut the margin to four at
halftime. After the intermission, Abeng came charging out to grab the lead,
but it proved'to be short-lived. "They threw a press at us, but after awhile we
were able to break it," said Lewis manager Randy Keyser.
Blagdon 'A' 55, Solidarity 44: The'number two-ranked Residence Hall team
ini this week's Daily poll had to overcome a five-point deficit at halftime to
notch its third victory. Doug Venable bagged 24 points and Brad Yaker ad-
ded 15 to pace Blagdon to the win. "We came out running in the second half
and blew them out," said Blagdon manager Sam Gun. Jim Latham provided
Blagdon with strength underneath, as he grabbed 12 rebounds.
Huber Huberites 54, Max Kade 25: Behind the 27 points of Pete Rowly and
a full court press, the Huberites proved to be too much for their opponents.
Huber scored 14 straight points at the outset for a 26-8 lead at halftime.
Purple Cows 55, Group Function 39: Last week's number one ranking did
not jinx the Purple Cows, as they eased to their third win in as many games.
Paul Wyzgoski broke a close game wide open with a 20-point performance.
Team manager Tim Hester, while surprised at last week's top-of-the-poll
ranking, believes that his team stands a good chance of winning the cham-
pionship. "We're fairly small, but we make it up in speed," said Hester in,
describing the law school team.
Ball Burnishers 49, DSD 'B' 32: The Ball Burnishers kept pace with the
Purple Cows, as they led from start to finish in capturing their third victory.
With 6-6 center Russ Sassack out due to an injury, the Ball Burnishers com-
pensated by shooting 60 to 65 pecent from the field, according to captain
Interest in a possible showdown between the two top graduate teams ap-
pears to be growing. When Olds, a dental student, was informed that the one
team ahead of the Ball Burnishers is composed of law students, he commen-
ted,"We hate them already."
DIRT 110, XTL 68: Janet Dooley, Peggie Kopmeyer, and Barb Freeman
accounted for all but two of DIRT's points to lead the Co-Rec powerhouse to
an easy victory. "The key to the game was that our women beat theirs down
the court, so we were able to get most of the points on fast breaks," ex-
plained DIRT captain Pete McCanna.
The major task confronting McCanna's team, which has been competing
together for three years is that of dethroning last year's champions, the
Nitwits. "The Nitwits pay well together, and their men are very good
players," said McCanna. "I think our women are just as good as theirs, but
our men will have to play well to keep up with them.
Mash 59, Black Sheep 29: "We only had seven people, but we hung in
there," explained McCanna after his Independent Division team breezed to
an easy win. Mash relied on quick guards Phil Howels and Bob Trombley
and center Larry Clark to get its fastbreak in gear. "Larry was able to pull
in the rebounds to make the break go;" said McCanna.
Phi Delta Theta 50, ZB'I'30: The Phi Delts jumped out to an early 10-2 lead
and never looked back in garnering their third victory. Despite the win,
team manager Mike Baker was not overly pleased. "We were very
lackadasical in beating them," he said.
Sigma Nu 49, Sigma Chi 43: John Long's 17 points and implementation of a
zone defense was enough for Sigma Nu to hold off stingy Sigma Chi. Sigma
Nu had problems getting organized at the beginning of the game, as only
three players showed up. "We were down, 8-4, before our other players
showed up, and then by halftime we had the lead," said Sigma Nu captain
