SPOR TS OF THE DAILY
Grapplers pinned for two losses
By DOUGLAS B. LEVY
. The Michigan wrestling team lost
twice last week, 21-15 Saturday night
defeat at the hands of the Minnesota
Gophers following Thursday's 36-7
mauling by the nation's second-ranked
Iowa State Cyclones.
The meet against the fifth-ranked
Gophers started off in fine fashion for
coach Dale Bahr's crew, as sophomore
All-American Joe McFarland won a
major decision over Ed Giese, 18-7, at
118 pounds. Senior Larry Haughn
followed that by decisioning Todd Guse,
4-0, in the 126-pound class.
"JOE IS JUST a fantastic wrestler,"
Bahr said. "He is strong and in great
shape and improving all the time. And
Larry has stepped in and done a super
job. Larry is having a tough time
making weight, but he is sacrificing for
the team and has been very effective."
Minnesota struck back ferociously,
however, with the meat of its lineup.
three former Big Ten champions, Gary
Lefebvre, Dalend Wasmund, and Jim
Martinez were impressive enough at
134, 142, and 150 pounds, respectively
for Bahr to say"All threeof those guys
can easily win the Big Ten's again.'
In the pivotal- match of the meet,
Gopher Darrell Gholar decisioned Tim
Fagan, 7-5, at 158 pounds.
FRESHMAN Scot Rechsteiner then
came up with a 7-3 decision over Craig
Wiklund in the. 167-pound class.
"Wiklund is an experienced senior;
this was another good win for Scott,"
Freshman Kevin Hill, who had
Michigan's lone win against Iowa State,
dropped a major decision, 15-5, to Mark
Luby at 177 pounds.
While another patented Wolverine
wrestling comeback was not in the car-
ds, senior All-American Pat McKay
was able to decision Iowa State's
George Bohman, 3-2, at 190 pounds.
"Bohman has always given us
problems, and while Pat is still two
weeks away from top shape, he-
wrestled well and got a good win," said
SENIOR heavyweight Eric Klasson
finished the meet by wrestling to a
draw for the second week in a row, this
time a 1-1 score versus, Mark Miller.
The Gopher did ndt completely convin-
ce Bahr, however. "Eric beat Miller, 5-
2, at the Midlands and is definitely a
better wrestler," commented Bahr.
Michigan's record is now 8-5, 4-3 in
the Big Ten. Its competition does not
get any- weaker, as the Wolverines
travel to Iowa City Saturday night for a
tangle with the number one-ranked
Tracksters break two
In the aftermath of the Mason-Dixon
Games held in Louisville, Ky. last
weekend, Michigan women's track
coach Francie Goodridge is left with
mixed -emotions. While pleased with
the two new school records attained in
the meet (which had no team scoring),
Goodridge was concerned about an in-
jury suffered by Lisa Larsen, the
Wolverines', fine miler.
Larsen was spiked during the first
turn of the one-mile run and later
received four stitches in her Achilles
tendon. "It means she can't run for a
couple of weeks," said Goodridge
classifying it a "major disaster."
THE RECORDS set by Sue Frederick
and Melanie Weaver made the coach a
little happier. Frederick broke Lar-
sen's record in the mile with a time of
4:48.3, chopping more than five seconds

off of the previous mark. The coach
was particularly impressed with
Weaver's 16:22.6 performance in the
5,000-meter run. There was only one
faster time in America during 1981. "I
don't think anyone can chnler.g- 1 ele,"
Goodridge said as she looked ahead to
the remainder of Weaver's season.
In other events at the Mason-Dixon
Games, Cathy Sharpe finished second
in the 60-yard dash with a time of 7.18;
the Wolverine 880-yard relay team
placed third, . Sharpe teamed with
Renee Turner, Laurie Thornton and
Brenda Kazinec to finish in 1/41.6;
Thornton took second in the long jump
with a leap of 19'61/4"; and Joanna
Bullard nabbed third in the high jump
with a 5'8" performance.
Goodridge must now prepare the
team for Saturday's Wolverine In-
vitational. Among the squads coming
to Ann Arbor are Michigan State,
Bowling Green, Eastern Michigan,
Toledo, and Central Michigan.
Goodridge sees the Spartans as the
team to beat in the 11-team In-
vitational, but believes that her squad
matches up well in the two-mile run and
the 60-yard dash. Field events begin at
12:00 noon on Saturday,at the Track and
Tennis Building with running events
starting at 12:30 p.m.
LANDOVER (AP)= Eric Floyd and
Pat Ewing combined for 23 points as
Georgetown outscored Syracuse 37-12
during a torrid 12-minute span before
and after halftime as the 20th ranked
Hoyas defeated the Orangemen 96-79 in
a college basketball game last night.
The fifth victory in a row gave
Georgetown a 19-5 record, including 8-3,
in'the Big East Conference where they
trail first-place Connecticut. Syracuse
is 13-8, with a 5-4 mark in the Big East.
GEORGETOWN trailed 39-34 when
Syracuse's Tony Bruin picked up his
third foul with 4:58 remaining in the fir-
st half and went to the bench. The
Hoyas outscored Syracuse 17-4 to take a
51-43 halftime lead.
The hot streak continued after inter-
mission, with Ewing scoring 10 points
and Floyd six, as the Hoyas went on a
20-8 spurt for a 71-51 lead with 13:16
Floyd; Georgetown's all-time leading
scorer, finished with 27 points and
Ewing, a 7-0 freshman, had a career-

Georgetown 75-70 earlier in the season,
was led by Erich Santifer with 21 poin-
ts. Ron Payton and Bruin added 16
"We thought we could rattle them with
our zone press," Thompson said, "but it
didn't bother them at all. They were
scoring from everywhere.
"I kept shifting lineups until I could
find one that worked. The small lineup
of four guards and Patrick 7-foot Ewing
turned it around for us by applying
man-to-man pressure. Gene Smith set
the tempo for it.'

THAD GARNER SLAMS one down in the Wolverines' 62-60 -upset win over
Ohio State earlier in the Big Ten season, as an amazed Clark Kellogg looks
on. In Michigan's latest win over Illinois, the team's third consecutive home
victory, Garner hit a Crisler Arena record 11 of 11 from the foul line and
scored a team-high 19 points. For his efforts he was named Big Ten Player of
Player. of the Week
By LARRY FREED
"(Thad) Garner was fabulous-he was phenomenal," rejoiced Michigan
coach Bill Frieder after Garner's 19-point performance paced the
Wolverines to their third victory in four outings. "I hope the Big Ten office
saw it (his performance). He's gotten no ink at all."
Frieder can relax now, because the conference officials must have been
tuned in to the regionally broadcast contest against Illinois as they awarded
Garner Player of the Week honors.
THE 6-7 SENIOR captain converted a Crisler Arena record 11 straight free
throws en route to his 19-point outing that helped Michigan down the
streaking Fighting Illini, 58-53.
Earlier in the week, Garner converted 15 points to aid the" upstart
Wolverines in their 66-63 victory over Northwestern. The two wins helped
Michigan vacate the cellar of the Big Ten, where they are now settled in an
eighth-place tie With the Wildcats.
"It was hard--losing," the Hammond, Ind. native said. "I get my satisfac-
tion now seeing everyone else is improving."
FOR THE WEEK, Garner, the number four scorer in the conference, shot
77 percent from the field and 93 percent from the line. In addition, he collec-
ted 10 rebounds, seven assists and two steals.
"He's a great leader and a great kid," praised his coach.
Michael Payne, the 6-10 freshman from Iowa, finished second in the
balloting. He was joined by Wisconsin's Brad Sellers, and Illinois' Craig'
Tucker, who also received ballots for their individual performances.
