Speers spurs icers to OT
By BARB BARKER
Just 15 seconds and one breath-taking
That's all it took for the Michigan
hockey team to nab a 3-2 overtime vic-
tory last night and sweep the weekend
series with Michigan Tech at Yost Ice
"WE HAD A little help from above on
that final goal," said Michigan head
coach John Giordano.
The Wolverines took the face-off and
managed to get three shots on goal in
only 15 seconds. Junior, center Ted
Speers scored the winning goal when he
made good a rebound off of a Dave
Richter shot. Richter fired off a shot
from the point which hit Huskie goalie
Tom Allen and flew into the air. Speers
stopped the deflected puck with his
glove and then placed the puck into the
empty right side of the goal. The'
Michigan bench'emptied and the 7,126
near capacity crowd went wild.
"I was a little worried going into the
overtime that we were going to a tie,"
said Speers. "Tech was really bringing
it to us. I knew it was going to be a
hard-fought battle. Hopefully now this
(the sweep) will give us some confiden-
This is the second time this year
Michigan has swept the Huskies. The
first was in the season opener at
Houghton where the Wolverines won, 3-
2, 3-0. Prior to this season, the Blue
icers had not swept the Huskes since
WOLVERINE freshman goalie Jon
Elliott had an impressive game,
chalking up 32 saves in regulation time.
It was a Huskie third-period goal that
tied the score, 2-2, and sent the game in-
to overtime. Right winger Brian Clark
took a Bill Perry pass and drilled it into
the Wolverine net from left face off cir-
cle. Prior to that goal, the Wolverines
had led the game-since the first period.
The Wolverines were the first to light
up the scoreboard when Dennis May
notched his 10th goal of the season at
3:45 of the first period.
THE SENIOR right winger took a Joe
Perry pass, skated it around the

the puck into the right corner of the net.

PONTIAC - If the Detroit Pistons hope to make the NBA
p layoffs this year, they are going to have to beat contending
teams, especially at home. That's exactly what they didn't
do last night, however, losing to New Jersey 125-120, at the
Silverdome .,. r._
The' Nets' victory gives them a two game advantage over
Detroit in the struggle for the last playoff spot in the Eastern
RAY WILLIAMS paced the New Jersey attack with a
game-high 36 points, including a jumper with 3:14 left in the
game which put the Nets ahead to stay. Darwin Cook, who
was cut by the Pistons last year, chipped in with 19 poidts
Piston coach Scotty Rebertson said the problem wasv
the performance of the Detroit guards. "Defensively,
guards were terrible," said Robertson. "We only had th
guards to rotate, but that's no excuse."-Robertson
referring to the absence of rookie guard Isiah Thomas,'
did not play because of a sprained big toe. The coach ad
that Thomas would probably be out for several day
Thomas' injury occured in Friday night's game against
Bulls in Chicago.
The Pistons took control early behind John Long's shoo
but could not maintain a first quarter three-point lead.

YPSILANTI -The Michigan men's
swimming team didn't let last week's
loss to Indiana hinder its efforts yester-
day, as the tankers were able to swim
away from the Hurons of Eastern
Michigan, 81-33, at Eastern's Warner
"They did a really good, positive
,job," said Michigan coach Gus Stager.
Though they(Hurons) didn't swim as
well as they could have, we were pretty
MICHIGAN WAS able to go ahead af-
ter it captured first and second place
finishes in the opening race - the 400-
yard medley relay. The most outstan-
ding win, according to Stager, came in
the 1,000-yard freestyle as Kevin
Williamson - set a pool record with a
time of 9:21.8, while teammate Carl
Bocerra came in third.
The next victory came in the 50-yard
freestyle, as Mark Noetzel proved that
"he is really ready to do well;" accor-
ding to Stager. Noetzel also took first in
the 100-yard freestyle and set a pool
record, as he filled in for freestyler
Fernando Canales, who is out of town
Bruce Gemmell continued his fine
swimming by taking first in the 400-
y'ard individual medley and the 200-
yard backstroke. Ron Merriott also
took two first places -on the one, and
"THEY ALL had good steady
swims," said Stager, "and I think we
have a couple who may take Big Ten
Championships...they deserve it."
Stager relies on Tom Dudley as his best
butterflier and Dudley came through,
placing first in the 200-yard butterfly
and swimming as a part of the winning
400-yard freestyle relay team.
In the 200-yard breaststroke, it was
Neal Bond and John Albanese taking
first and second respectively for
Overall, the Wolyerine tankers cap-
tured eleven first place finishes out of
the total of thirteen events. "They're
(Hurons) a better team than they were
in this meet," said Stager. "They just
didn't swim all that well."
With the Big Ten Championships not
far off, Stager feels that the only thing
that may hinder Michigan's chances is
its lack of depth. ° "I would really enjoy
it if some of these guys win Big Ten
Championships, because they're doing
the job," said Stager. Next weekend
the tankers travel to Columbus to meet

ny Nielson continued to dominate his
opponents in the shot put as he
remained undefeated after yesterday's

SEVERAL other Michigan tracksters

March 12-13 National Meet. Dave
Lugin, who is the Big Ten outdoor
champion in the high jump, won this
event with a leap of 7'1%". The height
was one inch under the qualifying
mark, and enabled Lugin to shake off a.
Andrew Bruce, who has already ear-
ned a spot in the national meet in the
quarter mile, finished first in the 60-
yard dash with a time of 6.26. To qualify
for the NCAA's he needed a time of 6.24.
The distance medley relay, which has
already qualified for the national meet,
proved itself once again by capturing
first place with a time of 9:46.5. Brian
Diemer had one of the more spec-
tacular performances of the evening,
when he completed his mile leg of the
relay in 4:02.
Gerard Donakowski won the open
mile by crossing the tape in 4:09.7.
The Wolverines will return to East
Lansing on Friday when they compete
in a dual meet against Michigan State.
