Women tankers win

By MARK FISCHER

UNLESS YOU'RE A Spartan, you're going to
have a tough time winning in Jenison
Fieldhouse. Especially if you're from Ann Arbor.
You should see it in there. Ten thousand and four
merciless fans, 99.9 percent of whom hate
Michigan.
The Wolverines gave it a shot Thursday night
anyway. A good shot. Despite slopping to a 23-10
disadvantage midway through the first half, they
came back to cut the Michigan State lead by five
at halftime, and to only one, 38-37, minutes into the
second stanza.-
It was amazing. There was young Michigan, all
by its lonesome in the big, bad Fieldhouse, ac-
tually taking the momentum away and slowly but
surely silencing the rabid State fans.
All the Blue cagers had to do, it seemed, was
turn the corner. If they could only take the lead
just once, they would take the big step forward out
of the rain and into the sun.
They would regain the precious confidence they
first acquired by beating Ohio State, and which
they built on with consecutive wins over North-
western and Illinois. Michigan would have once
again instilled and magnified that confidence by
taking the lead back from State after being down
so far.
Just as importantly, Michigan would have put
the MSU-fans' derisions and partisan aggressions
right back in their faces. The Spartans, if you
remember, managed to turn that trick just three
weeks ago in Crisler Arena, when they dug them-
selves qut of a 10-point first half deficit, outscored

Michigan, 20-2, in one second-half stretch, and
eventually hung on to win, 64-62.
The Blue hoopsters certainly had their chances
Thursday night. The first came with the score 38-
37, when Michigan forced a turnover and pushed
the ball up the floor to Thad Garner .for a
breakaway which had "slam" written all over it.
But the pass to the Wolverine captain wasn't quite
crisp enough and Kevin Smith, State's lightning-
quick guard, caught up with Garner in time to
hack him not only into missing the shot but into the
padded bottom of the backboard as well.
After shaking out the cobwebs and having a
short chat with team trainer Mark Healy, Garner
went to the line for two charity tosses. Things were
looking up for the visitors. Since hitting 11 of 11
free throws against Illinois the Saturday before,
Garner had firmly established himself as his
team's top foul shooter.
But Garner wasn't at home Thursday, and his
meeting with the bottom of the board probably
didn't do wonders for his shooting touch. The 6-7
forward missed his first shot, and, as it turned out,
the stage was set.
In the ensuing minutes, Michigan's hopes of
'taking the all-important lead were revived again,
and again, as State failed to score on four con-
secutive trips downcourt. But the Wolverines, who
seemed to be shaken up by their captain's crash as
much as Garner was, let the golden opportunities
slip through their fingers. They returned MSU's
favor by giving the ball right back to their hosts on
their own four turns at the offensive end.

Michigan had one final chance with the score 44-
43. This time it was freshman guard Leslie
Rockymore's turn to try his shooting hand at
pushing Michigan's head above water.
But no, it wasn't to be. The shot bricked, and at
the other end, Spartan guard Sam Vincent (24
points) ticked. At 5:14 a Vincent jumper gave
MSU a four-point lead, and Michigan would get no
closer.
In the words of Michigan coach Bill Frieder,
"The officiating did not beat us, we did." Frieder
has a point.
The Wolverines had the momentum. They had
their chances. For the first time in their last four
close games, however, they gagged. That was the
difference between Thursday night's 66-55 loss to
State and the cagers' last three wins over Ohio
State (62-60), Northwestern (66-63), and Illinois
(58-53).
And Blue supporters can only hope that
Michigan's failure to turn the corner Thur-
sday-which must have bitten off at least a small
chunk from the team's recently built confidence-
will not psychologically hinder the 4-15 cagers'
ability to turn the corner again this season.
For if the Wolverines could have won Thursday
they would have learned for the first time this
season that they can win on the road. And if it is
going to win again this season, Michigan had bet-
ter develop that road confidence. The young
cagers' remaining home games, you see, must be
played against Iowa, Minnesota, and Indiana-
nobody too tough, just the top three teams in the
conference.

Special to the Daily
YPSILANTI - The Michigan
women's swim team reached its first
real goal of the season as the Wolverines
downed the Hurons of Eastern
Michgan, last night 98-42, and have
completed their first undefeated season
since 1978.
Coach Stu Isaac of Michigan had
three goals in mind when his squad
started the season, and one pfthe easier
ones he said has been accomplished.
"Judging by the way we swam we can
do really well at Big Tens," said Isaac.
THE WOLVERINES started off

strong as they took first in the 200-yard
medley relay, then Denise Stuntzner
took first in the 500-yard freestyle with
two other Blue Swimmer's taking
second and third.
"I really like the performances of
Melinda Copp and Sue Cahill (first and
second, respectively) in the 200-yard
individual medley," said Isaac.
Michigan's Tami Paumier and An-
drea Wolf took first and second, respec-
tively, in the 100-yard butterfly. In the
diving competition, Wolverines
Elizabeth Wright and Vicki Kimball
took first on the one- and three-meter
boards,, respectively,

Synhros
warm up
for next

By LAURA CLARK
The Michigan Synchronized Swimming team will no doubt
be glad to leave the frigid environs of the Midwest this
weekend, as the squad travels to a warmer Virginia climate
at the University of Richmond for the Richmond In-
vitational today.
This will only be the second meet that the Wolverines have
participated in out of the last four scheduled since inclement
weather has forced the cancellation of two meets. "We've
never had trouble with the weather- like this; it's really
frustrating," said Michigan coach Joyce Lindeman.
MOTHER NATURE has given Michigan one advantage in
casting an icy spell over the team's travel schedule. The Blue
squadhas found more time to polish up each routine. "I've
been looking at some of the best choreography the team has
ever produc.ed," claimed Lindeman. "They're really on top
of it."
The Michigan team currently holds the number-three
position in the national ratings. The only other nationally

ranked team that will compete this weekendis tithe nation's
number-one squad, Ohio State.
Despite the Buckeyes' presence at the meet, Lindeman
feels her 'A' team will come through with the points the
Wolverines need. The trio of Cathy O'Brien, Erin
O'Shaughnessy and Betsy Neira could be the team to beat
this weekend.
O'SHAUGHNESSY has also teamed up with Linda Pritz for
a duet. "Linda and Erin have really perfected their routine,"
said Lindeman. "They look like they've been swimming for
years together." Mary Beth Crumrine will compete for
Michigan in the solo competition.
Today's meet is a combination of synchronized figures and
routines. In other words, the swimmers will be performing
basic moves for judging in the figures competition, and
original numbers with musical accompaniment for the
routines competition.
The meet in Richmond will give Michigan a chance to raise
its national recognition if the Wolverines defeat the top-

meet

seeded Buckeyes.

"Innovation" may be a key word
around the Michigan Athletic Depar-
tment this spring. The department is
currently researching the possibilities
of building a new gymnasium and
renovating the field in Michigan
Stadium.
Most of the ideas for improvement of
the athletic plant are in the very early
stages of development. The Athletic
Department has conducted only
prelimnary studies. into the gym-
nasium and football stadium projects
so far.
THE ARTIFICIAL turf in Michigan.
Stadium periodically needs
replacement. Thus, a good time to
make improvements in the stadium
would be when the turf must be
replaced. The Athletic Department is
looking into' the possibility of dropping
the level of the football field six feet.
This improvement in stadium design
will allow the department to better
utilize the approximately 10,000 seats
that currently have obstructed views
because they are too low.
There are problems with dropping
the level of the football field, however,
according to Assistant Athletic Direc-
tor Will Perry. The water table under
the stadium is very high, and it might
not be possible to lower the field. In
fact, when the stadium was originally
built in the 1920's, a steam shovel sank
into the quicksand at field level and still
remains under the stadium today.
As for the new gymnasium, Perry
noted that various problems, including
energy, must be taken into account.
"WE ARE trying to get an under-
standing of the costs involved," said
Perry. "It is a complicated situation.
When you use Crisler Arena for some of
these events, you run up tremendous
heating bills."
One of the possibilities for creating a
new gymnasium involves building a
new swimming pool and covering the
old swimming pool with a gym floor.
"Building a mini-gymnasium over
the old swimming pool is a good idea
because it has the seating capacity of
3,000, which is about what you need for
gymnastic meets," said Perry.
Another possibility would be to build

a completely new gymnasium. Several
sites for the building are under con-
sideration. One of the most likely, ac-
cording to Perry, would be the vacant

land between Revelli Hall and the In-
tramural Sports Building. Another area
which presents a viable possibility is
the end of the track at Ferry Field.
