Pistons sail past Clippers
By JESSE BARKIN
Special to the Daily
PONTIAC - The Pistons tried, very hard, but they
just could not lose to the Pacific division cellar-
dweller San Diego Clippers, as Detroit heldon for a
sloppy 114-110 win last night in the Silverdome.
The Pistons shot 32 percent in the final quarter and
committed five turnovers late in the game, but what
it all came down to was the clutch of free throw
shooting of Isiah Thomas and Terry Tyler.
COACH SCOTTY Robertson was relieved. "We
survived. We didn't play well in the fourth quarter,
but I've said it before, there ain't no such thing as a
With 51 seconds left in the game and the Pistons
nursing a 109-108 lead, Kelly Tripucka missed a short
jumper but the rebound went out of bounds of the
hands of San Diego's Jerome Whitehead and Detroit
kept possession. Thomas then was fouled and hit two
free throws with 34 seconds left to give the Pistons a
San Diego came back quickly as Michael Brooks
tipped in a missed Whitehead lay-up to close the gap
back to one. After a Detroit timeout, Tyler was
fouled immediately on the inbounds pass and went to
the line and sank two shots to stretch the lead to 113-
AL WOOD MISSED a jumper with 13 seconds left
and Ron Lee's rebound sealed the victory. Thomas
added one more free throw to make the final score
"Terry (Tyler) and I (Thomas) made some big
free throws at the end to win it for us," said Rober-
tson. "Isiah is playing very well for us right now. Of-
fensively, I like what he's doing for us.
Thomas led the Pistons with 27 points and Tripucka
added 26, but except for the wild finish the game was
a sleeper for the 4,185 fans. In fact, the biggest
response from the crowd came when San Diego
rookie Tom Chambers, a 59 percent foul shooter,
came to the line after he already had missed seven
straight free throws. The crowd quieted down
quickly after he made one on his second try.
THE ONE BRIGHT spot for the dismal Clippers;
who dropped to 16-49 for the year, was the play of
second year forward Brooks. Brooks scored 33 poin-
ts, grabbed 16 rebounds, and had five asists, while
almost single-handedly bringing the Clippers back
with three consecutive turnaround jumpers in the
last two minutes.
Detroit led, 29-28, after one period, and stretched it
out to 48-36 midway into the second. But the Clippers
clawed back behind the play of diminutive guard
Charlie Criss, who scored 14 of his 22 points in the fir-
With six minutes left in the half, the 5-8 Criss scored
a lay-up to narrow the Piston lead to 57-54. Then after
Chambers scored on a dunk and Whitehead blocked a
John Long lay-up, Criss scored another easy lay-up
as the Clippers took the lead 58-57. San Diego shot an
amazing 82 percent in the second quarter on 14 of 17.
The Mudhens 10, Sname 2: Despite a quick goal by Sname in the first few
seconds of the game, the Mudhens were able to regroup and easily came out on
top. The excellent teamwork of the Mudhens allowed them to dominate the
game completely. Leading scorer, Mark Fookman, put in five goals,
followed by Steve Shenfeld with two, and Andre Briane, Rob Crim and Ted
Buiting with one a piece.
The Mudhens were also at a disadvantage due to the injury of starting
goaltender Bob Swiller.
Rowdies 12, Chicago House 1: The long history of the Rowdies seems to
say it all. Most of the team members began playing together in 1977, and
since then they have acquired four championships, three from the outdoor
league and one from the indoor league. Their game against Chicago House
started them on their way to another season of smooth sailing playing mini-
Accounting for their goals were Chris Leonard with one, Mark Ohlaver
with a hat trick, and Steve Paul, who had an excellent game with eight goals.
"This is our last season together so we hope to close it out victoriously once
again," said manager Chris Leonard.
Sex Pistons 8, Foozers 4: The Sex Pistons clearly dominated this game as
they were leading 6-0 at the half. The Foozers came back in the second half,
only because the Six Pistons took it easy and substituted often, knowing they
had complete control of the game.
Captain Simon Hester had five goals, with Bobby Hirsch and John Irvin
each contributing one. Some members of the Sex Pistons also played in last
year's outdoor league when they played well enough to reach the semi-finals.
The Club 2, The Oilmen 0: Managed by Brian Snoap, the Club was formed
while singing for the men's glee club. "We feel it's going to be an interesting
season as it is our first time playing volleyball together. We have a lot of
potential and hopefully some will be developed,"said Snoap.
Jeff Beggs and Jeff Steele look to be the team's strong players after game
one of pre-playoff action.
Solidarity 2, Wenley House 'A' 0: Team effort characterizes Solidarity, as
it professes to have no stars, however Rob Leland and George Stone had ex-
cellent games this week. Solidarity started off slow in both games but pulled
its forces together to come back and win two consecutively.
Solidarity has a team for every sport, so while it has not played volleyball
until this season, it has learned to play well together as a team, and doesn't
feel the lack of experience will hinder the team's chances at good results in
Swisher Sweets 2, Anonymous Force 0: Swisher Sweets took an easy win
with scores of 15-8 and 15-3, respectively. The Sweets main problem is that
they have no one tall enough to effectively spike the ball.
"We play for fun but we think we're in contention because everyone is
athletic enough to overcome our lack of expertise and height," commented
player Renee Callies. In addition, the leadership and skill of Randy Taylor
basically holds the team together.
Carp 2, B.C.'s 0: Carp has been around together for four years, competing
both in the independent and co-rec leagues. Last year it took second n the in-
dependent and fourth in the co-rec. Carp's goal this year is to take first in
both divisions. Coach/player Gene Macario feels his team has a good chan-
ce because it has added a few former Michigan players. Macario, along with
Bob Dickinson and Steven Kelly were the originators of the team and have
kept the team together. As expected, Carp beat the B.C.s fairly easily.

The Michigan golf team got warmed up, in terms of both
the weather and practice, as it opened its season in the
Iron Duke Classic last weekend in Durham, N.C.
The Wolverines finished 18th in the 24-team field at 967, 95
strokes off the pace of the victorious North Carolina State
Leading the Michigan squad was Ed Humenik, who shot a
230 over the 54-hole meet. Tied for second among the
Wolverines were Ed Frutig and freshman Dan Roberts, both
of whom finished at 242. Rounding out the top four for the
Blue linksters was Ryan Wiezycki who ended up at 253.
Walker to stay at Georgia
ATHENS, Ga. (AP)- Herschel Walker, the two-time All-
American tailback at Georgia, announced yesterday he will
not challenge the National Football League rule that
prohibits the drafting of undergraduates.
Walker's decision, announced at a news conference here,
means the 6-1, 222-pounder will remain at Georgia and play
football for the Bulldogs next fall, his junior season.
"I have weighed all the facts and have decided that I will
remain at Georgia and will not challenge the NFL under-
classman rule," Walker said in a statement prior to the news
"I still feel the NFL rule is basically unconstitutional.
However, I don't want to interfere with the system that's
designed to be the best for the majority of people involved"
Dodgers 6, Tigers 2
LAKELAND, Fla. (AP)- Detroit reliever Kevin Saucier,
rattled by a pair of balk calls, yielded four successive Los
Angeles singles in the 10th inning yesterday and the Dodgers
took a 6-2 exhibition victory over the Tigers.
Saucier, who came on to start the 10th, issued a one-out
walk to Greg Brock, then was called for two successive balks
which sent Brock to third. Brock scored the go-ahead run on
Steve Yeager's single. Yeager scored on successive singles
by Bill Russell and Rudy Law and Steve Sax singled home
Dave Anderson, who was running for Russell. Law came
home while Sax was caught in a rundown between first and
THE TIGERS got both of their runs in the second when
Tom Brookens homered off Jerry Reuss with John Wocken-
Los Angeles got one back in the seventh when Pedro
Guerrero homered off Jack Morris. The Dodgers tied it in the
eighth when Brock doubled, went to third on Yeager's groun-
der and came home on Russell's fly ball.
LA reliever Ale jandro Pena picked up the victory for the
Dodgers, who improved their Grapefruit League record to 5-
3. Saucier took the defeat for Detroit, which is now 3-6.
