-v'M'tracksters Bean and Harper
I-compete for top long jumper spot

Ever since Vince Bean and Derek
Harper were in high school, the two
have been engaged in a running battle,
or more appropriately a jumping bat-
The pair have competed against each
other for top long-jumping honors since
Bean was enrolled in Southfield High
School and Harper was at Pontiac Nor-
NOW THE DUO are fighting for top
Michigan honors.
With the loss of last year's Big Ten
Indoor long jumping champion, James
Ross, who has become ineligible to

compete this year, the position for the
best jumper is now open.
Track coach Jack Harvey does not
seem too worried about the loss of all-
time varsity record holder Ross. Ac-
cording to Harvey the problems are
"less than they would have been if we
hadn't had two good back-up jumpers."
AND SO THE competition begins
Looking at their accomplishments,
both Bean and Harper seem evenly
matched. Last year Bean finished
second in the Big Ten Indoor meet with
a jump of 24'7". During the spring
Harper took the runner-up spot in the
out door meet leaping 24'31/4".
Throughout every meet this season
the pair have finished in the one-two
spots. Harper won the first four com-
petitions and Bean captured the 'last
two. At last weekend's Wolverine In-
vitational the two broke the 25' mark
(Bean-25'31/2", Harper 25',3") and
both have earned invitations to next
weekend's NCAA meet at the Silver-
BUT THE question of the long dual
remains. "I think that their rivalry is a
good rivalry. There is no feeling of
animosity between them," said Har-
"We're still rivals," said Harper,
though he admits that it is to his advan-
tage. "Some of my best jumps have
been against (Bean)."
"We still compete but it's more of a

friendly type of competition," added
THERE MIGHT be a little extra in-
centive for Bean to excel in college sin-
ce according to the two-sport man (he
plays football for the Wolverines it was
Harper who finally won the high school
"He won the state meet with 25 feet,"
said the split end.
While their accomplishments are
similar, the methods in attaining them
are different. Harper has relied
primarily on his speed while Bean ap-
pears to depend heavily on his strength.
CHANGING sports for Bean has not
been that much of a problem for him.
"It was last year," admitted the
sophomore, "but this year not at all."
"(The long jump) is one of the few
events you can to straight to from foot-
ball," said Harvey.
Though Bean will attest to the fact
that he enjoys track much more than
football, he has no plans of giving up
"I WASN'T SURE if I was going to

long jump any more I came here for
football," said Bean. "The person who
got me to try out was Dave Hall." Hall,
who also plays football, had competed
in the long jump until this season when
he defected to the basketball team.
The next match for both Bean and
Harper will be today and tomorrow as
they compete in the Big Ten Indoor
Championships in Bloomington.
Since they hold the best (Bean) and
second best (Harper) jumps in the Big
Ten this season, the outcome of the
meet seems predictable.
Bean feels that he knows exactly how
the outcome will be. "(The winner) will
definitely be the person who has the last
jpmp. That's what it's gonna come
down to."
THOUGH THE pair seems to have
this meet in tow, next week is a dif-
ferent story.
"I look back at the NCAA's last year
and 25'2" took sixth place, said Harper
on his chances to score next week.
"We're both just happy to get there,"
said Bean.


Harper and Bean
... Michigan long-jumpers continue rivalry

Pistons corral Bulls for sixth time

Special to the Daily
PONTIAC - It wasn't a Notre Dame
alumni reunion - though it looked like
it. But then again, it wasn't really even
a game - though it looked like it.
What it was, was a Detroit Pistons
sixth straight beating of the Chicago
Bulls; but unlike the others, this was an
old-fashioned pummeling, as the
Pistons blasted the Bulls, 122-97, last
night at the Silverdome.
WITH FORMER Notre Dame players
Bill Laimbeer and Kelly Tripucka star-
ting for the Pistons, and reserves
Orlando Woolridge and Tracy Jackson
- also.Notre Dame grads - playing for
the Bulls, one would have thought the
site was South Bend and the year was
1979. Certainly the Bulls wished it so.
"They're good players (Jackson and
Woolridge) and I enjoy playing against
them," said Laimbeer, who started at
center and finished with 10 points and 18
"It's good to beat them, though it was

the sixth time," said Tripucka, who
scored a game-high 24 points.
AS CHICAGO head coach Rod Thorn
said, the game was out of reach" with
the opening jump ball."
The Pistons lead by just three points af-
ter the first quarter, but blew the game
wide open by outscoring the Bulls 28-15
in the second period. Forward Terry
Tyler came off the bench to score 10
points and spark that rally.
Chicgo could get no closer than 12
points the entire second half, as
Tripucka scored 10 points in the third
period. Detroit held advantages of as
many as 30 points in the fourth quarter.
"I WAS PROBABLY as proud of this
win as any this year," said Piston coach
Scotty Robertson. "Chicago is a good
team and we had three guys in street
clothes tonight (Kent Benson, John
Long, Edgar Jones)."
Terry Tyler followed Tripucka in the
scoring with 22 points, including 11 of 13
from the floor, and Isiah Thomas added
21, despite the fact that he was in a
minor car accident before the game,
and slightly reinjured his toe.
Woolridge led the Bulls with 21 points
while Reggie Theus tallied 15. The
Pistons playing before a crowd of 3,439,
upped their record to 26-33, while the
Bulls fell to 23-35.
Summers traded
From wire service reports
The Detroit Tigers have acquired in-
fielder Enos Cabell and a player to be
named later from the San Francisco
Giants in exchange for outfielder
Champ Summers, General Manager

Jim Campbell announced yesterday.
CABELL, 32, a righthanded hitter, is
a veteran of 10 major league seasons-
three with Baltimore, six with Houston
and one with San Francisco. Summers,
33, came to Detroit in May 1979 from the
Cincinnati Reds.
Cabell has played in two league
championship series, in 1974 with the'

heartbreaker to nationally 7th-ranked
Texas, 5-4, in the second round of the

of the singles matches with a 6-4, 6-2 win
over Ihor Debryn.
Leach and Mees easily downed Kar-
