Gomberg 44, Van Tyne 42: The fifth-ranked Gomber squad blew out its op-
ponents in the opening minutes of Monday night's contest. According to
Gomber manager Paul Dull, "Our team play and hustle was the key to our
early 15-point lead, but then we slacked off."
Scott Cipa led the Gombers with 16 points and, along with teammate Todd
Freytag, dominated the boards. John Yocum was a key defensive player as
he rejected several of the Van Tyne's shots.
Phi Beta Sigma 53, Zeta Psi 48: Phi Beta Sigma won its sixth straight
game in a tough battle over previously undefeated Zeta Psi. The teams were
well matched as the lead changed hands several times in the early going. At
halftime, Phi Beta Sigma was up by only three, 27-24.
But in the second half, Phi Beta Sigma quickly stretched its lead to 11. It
held its advantage until about the seven-minute mark: Then the fun began.
Each team was charged with a technical foul and Winfred Carraway fouled
out for the Phi Beta Sigma's, who were then charged with their second
technical. Zeta Psi, led by Steve Spicer's 25 points, narrowed the score but
ran out of time.
Jeff Reeves was the leading scorer for the second-ranked Sigma's, who
face Kappa Alpha Psi in the next round of the IM playoffs. "We will beat the
Kappas," boasted manager Jose Black.
'D' Connection 42, GC's 39: This game was tight until the second half as
both teams started slowly. Roger Phunell kept the GC's in the game with 15
An eight-point rally in the second half made the difference for the 'D' con-
nection, which manager Mike Wood said, "Coasted from there." Buddy Van
de Wege paced the 'D' Connection with 16 points.
U-Towers 43, Sigma Phi Nothing 29: The U-Towers' balanced scoring at-
tack and tough zone defense was too much-for Sigma Phi Nothing as it was
eliminated from the IM playoffs. Rick Lock took scoring honors with 12 poin-
ts, but the victory was the result of a solid team effort.
Dirt 99, Evans Scholars 32: Using their height advantage to its fullest, Dirt
whipped the Evans Scholars. Dirt rebounded well and was able to turn many
inside shots into points. "Our girls get up and down the court really well,
their versatility gives us an advantage," said coach Pete McCanna. McCan-
na's only concern for his undefeated and number-one ranked team is that it
does not play again until March 8th.
Superstar 34, Takeoff 31: In a game that could have gone either way, the
Superstars came back to triumph. "It certainly was not because of our
height," commented Kathy Thomas. The Superstars' tallest player is 5'9"
and half the squad is under 5'4". Although they were ahead most of the
game, the Superstars were down by one with three minutes left. A couple of
steals by Julie Rummel and Laura Smith enabled the Superstars to pull the

'M' to add All-Stater
By RON POLLACK
Thomas Wilcher, an All-State football
player and national record setter in
track, will announce today that he in-
tends to enroll at Michigan. The first
signing day for football recruits was
last Wednesday, but the Detroit Central
tailback put off his decision until today.
It was one of the few things this year
that he has not done quickly.
He runs the 40-yard dash in a blazing
4.3 seconds and owns the national
record for the 110-meter hurdles with a
time of 13.6 seconds. During this past
season, he rushed for 1,254 yards and
scored 10 touchdowns from his tailback
position. The 6-1, 185-pounder will par-
ticipate in both football and track at
I "1 s
"HIS STRENGTHS in football are his
speed and ability to cut," said Detroit
Central assistant coach Dave Snead.
The other schools that Wilcher con-
sidered before selecting Michigan were
USC and Michigan State.
Wilcher joins an already fine group of
recruits that includes: quarterback
Jim Harbaugh, placekicker Pat Moons,
defensive back Ivan Hicks, offensive
linemen Mike Krause and Jerry Quaer-
na and running backs Tony Gant, Eddie
Garrett and Robert Perryman.
Gant was Ohio's AAA back-of-the-
year last season. Harbaugh, the son of
former Michigan assistant coach Jack,
is considered to be one of the top signal
callers coming out of high school.
