Hawkeyes blow out grapplers

Iowa s Davis beats
arch-rival McF arlan d

The Iowa Hawkeye wrestling team
has been the class of the Big Ten for the
last eight years, and barring a.nuclear
holocaust, they will reign as Big Ten
nd possibly National Champions in
982. Witness last Saturday night's blow
out of the Michigan grapplers: Iowa 47,
Michigan 3!
"I have never seen Iowa look better,"
said assistant coach Joe Wells. "Their
wrestlers are in excellent condition.
They are a superior team."
strated this superiority throughout the
meet, starting with the first match.
Iowa's Barry Davis, a Big Ten cham-
ion last year, major decisioned arch-
ival sophomore All-American Joe Mc-
Farland, 13-3, at 118-pounds. Mc-
Farland (23-3-3) and Davis could well
face each other later in the season in
the finals of the Big Ten Champion-
Iowa won by forfeit at 126-pounds,
before Jeff Kerber pinned Michigan
freshman Rickey Moore at 2:59, in the
134-pound class. Junior Lou Milani then

dropped a superior decision to 1981 Big
Ten Champion Lenny Zaleski, 26-7, at
Michigan's only victory of the meet
was achieved by senior John Beljan.
Beljan decisioned Marty Kistler, 4-2, at
150-pounds. "Beljan (12-6) is having a
good year," said Wells. "His con-
ditioning has been superb, and his
wrestling is always improving."
AFTER BELJAN'S match, the Iowa
wrestlers took control. "They were
wrestling with incredible intensity,"
said Wells. "The individual wrestlers
never felt any pressure, and were able
to stay loose... they are just a superior
At 158-pounds, the Hawkeyes' Jim
Zaleski superior decisioned junior Tim
Fagan, 24-6. And at 167-pounds, Dave
Fitzgerald superior decisioned
Michigan freshman Scott Rechsteiner,
Ed Banach, 1981 Big Ten and
National Champion for Iowa, pinned
freshman Kevin Hill at 4:09, at 177-
pounds. And Pete Bush, yet another
1981 Big Ten Champion, pinned

Wolverine senior All-American Pat
McKay at 1:24, in the 190-pound class.
FINALLY, 1981 BIG Ten and
National heavyweight champion, Lou
Banach major decisioned Michigan's
Eric Klasson (23-3-2), 16-6. Klasson and
Banach could also meet again in the Big
With its loss to Iowa, the wrestling
team concluded a tough four-game

schedule, during which time Michigan
has wrestled Michigan State, Iowa
State and Minnesota in addition to the
Hawkeyes. These teams are ranked
sixth, second, fifth and first in the coun-
try, respectively. Iowa is now 15-0-1,
while Michigan falls to 8-6.
Michigan's final two dual meets will
be against Ohio STate and Wisconsin,
February 20-21, at Crisler Arena. Coach
Wells anticipates that at both meets,
"there will be several close individual
matches, with victories determined by
intensity. Both meets should be exciting
and should come down to the final fes

Top cage recruit ready

to COmi1t to Mi

According to reports broadcast by a
Florida television station last night,
Richard Rellford,' one of the most
sought-after high school basketball
players in the nation, will announce his
college choice today. The Daily learned
late last night that the 6-6 Rellford,
regarded by many as the best prep
senior forward in the country, will
select Michigan. Michigan head coach
ill Frieder was unavailable for com-
Rellford is currently averaging 25
points and 16 rebounds per game at
Suncoast High School in Riviera Beach,
Fla., the same school that produced
Michigan All-American wide receiver
Anthony Carter.
AMONG HIS MANY plaudits,
Rellford was just recently named one of
the ten best prep cagers in the nation by
the Chicago Tribune. He also earned
4-State honors as a tight end this past
season on the Suncoast High football
team. Efforts by the Daily to contact
Rellford were unsuccessful.
Should Rellford select Michigan, he
would probably become the most
highly-touted of a growing crop of
Wolverine basketball recruits. Frieder
had, previously obtained verbal com-
mitments from 6-8 Paul Jokisch of
Birmingham Brother Rice, 6-91/2 Roy
arpley of Detroit Cooley and 6-9
obert Henderson of Lansing Eastern.
While Michigan might have added
one recruit, it appears that the

Wolverines have lost out on another.
Detroit Cass Tech standout Patrick Ford, a
6-5 swingman, is reportedly set to announce
today that he will play his basketball
at Michigan State. Ford had scheduled
a press conference for last Tuesday,
when it was thought he would announce
his intentions to attend Michigan. But
radio station WJR in Detroit was repor-
ting last night that Michigan State had
convinced Ford to pick the East Lan-
sing school.
Leonard downs Finch
RENO, Nev. (AP) - Sugar Ray
Leonard battered Bruce Finch to the
canvas three times and stopped him in
the third round last night to retain the
undisputed welterweight boxing cham-
pionship of the world.
Leonard completely dominated this
mountain gambling'resort's first title
fight in 72 years. The bout was billed as
"Reno's Got It," but Reno had it for less
than nine minutes as Leonard com-
pletely outclassed Finch.
ABOUT MIDWAY in the second
round, Finch pinned Leonard in a
neutral corner and landed several pun-
ches to the head and body while missing
many others. Suddenly, Leonard poun-
ded three savage hooks to the body and
a crisp right to the jaw that sent Finch
staggering across the ring. Leonard
leaped to the attack and landed a
fusillade of head punches, climaxed by
a right that dropped Finch.
Finch struggled up at the count of
eight and went down a short while later
from another flurry to the head. Again

ch ian
he struggled up and managed to last out
the round, although he reeled about the
ring like a drunk.
Then, in the third round, Finch
seemed to be boxing well when Leonard
suddenly unleashed a left hook that
traveled just a few inches to the
challenger's jaw. Down went Finch on
his hands and knees. He struggled up at
eight, wobbled back against the ropes
and referee Mills Lane signaled the
fight was over at 1:50 of the round.
At a prefight press conference,
Leonard had told Finch, "I'll give you
an opportunity to fight for the title, not
to win it."
