It's no secret what the Michigan with Ro
basketball team must do to defeat Cen- .. Dannf
tral Michigan tonight at Crisler Arena, (Paul) J

McLaughlin is a 6-0 senior guard for the one adv
Chippewas and Central's version of perienc
Eric Turner. He was the Mid-American has pla

Player of the Year. last yea
Like Turner, McLaughlin's range ex-
tends about out to the Crisler Arena
concession stands. In short, he is the
Chippewa's 'Mr. Everything" and the
Michigan defense has a tough assisgn-
ment in front of it.
Frieder, however, may have gotten a
few pointers on how to slow down the
Chippewa guard when the Michigan St-
ate defense faced the same problem
last weekend. The Spartans played
Central in the finals of the Spartan-
Cutlass Classic in East Lansing and
with Michigan State guard Sam Vincent
dogging McLaughlin, the Central guard
scored just 16 points. Michigan State
won the game, 62-47.
FRIEDER will probably use the
same type of defense as the Spartans

coach said. "I think if you zone he's

and averaged 8.1 points per outing; and
freshman guard Peter Lambropoulos,
who started Central's first two games
But while Michigan will have to over-
come McLaughlin and the Chippewa's
experience, Central must stop Turner
and overcome Michigan's height ad-
vantage. To do that, Frieder feels Cen-
tral coach Dick Parfitt will use a zone
defense, and the Michigan coach
doesn't like how his team has played
against the zone.
"We're going to have to play better
against the zone," .he said. "I think
Central wil come out in a zone and we
haven't played well against one."
Another key to Michigan's success
tonight, according to Frieder, is the
Wolverines' ability to get the ball inside
to the big men. The big men will in-
clude 6-11 Tim McCormick, who will
start at center, 6-7 Richard Rellford,
who will play one of the forward spots
and 6-10 Roy Tarpley. Tarpley scored
17 points in Michigan's opener against
Akron and although he won't start
tonight, he will definitely see a lot of
playing time. In fact, Frieder will
probably put both Tarpley and McCor-
mick on the front line at the same time
during tonight's game.
"I think you'll see the two of them in
there together," Frieder said. "Mc-
Cormick's playing real well and Tar-
pley keeps getting better. We've got to
find a way to get them out there at the

;By PAUL RESNICK
Michigan men gymnasts turned in
outstanding individual performances
last weekend in the Midwest Open held
"outside of Chicago.
Approximately 120 gymnasts com-
peted in each event for individual
awards. No team scores were
Dina Manus took first place on the
parallel bars with a score of 9.6.
Teammate Dave Miller placed 11th in
the same event with a 9.1. Rick Kauf--
mann placed second on rings with a 9.5.
IN FLOOR exercises, Mike McKee
finished seventh with scores of 9.4 and
8.8. Kevin McKee turned in an im-
pressive 9.5 score in vaulting. ,
Coach Loken attributed some of the
success to the lack of pressure.
Because the competition was only on an*
individual basis, team members were
'able to relax and concentrate on their

them," said Loken. "It was also nice to

Ticket suit successful
BAY CITY, Mich. (AP) - A judge
yesterday ordered the Detroit Lions to
pay a Bay City construction worker
$512.50 for 41 football tickets to a
National Football League game that
was scratched because of the players'
Randy Edgar, 28, sued the Lions in
small claims court after the team
refused to give him an immediate
refund for the tickets to the Detroit
Tampa Bay game scheduled Sept. 26.
The players' strike began Sept. 21.
BAY CITY District Judge Scott J.
Newcombe ordered the Lions to reim-
burse Edgar for the tickets, plus 12 per-
cent interest until the payment is made.
The interest comes to about $10.25. The
judge also ordered the Lions to pay
Edgar's court costs, which totaled
"I'm excited, I'm very happy,"
Edgar said about the decision.
Lions attorney Fredrick J. Dindoffer
said the Lions had been ready to pay
Edgar the full refund but could not
because Edgar had not returned the
tickets he had bought for himself and a
group of friends.
"We've gone a rather circuitous route
and it's rather unfortunate from all
perspectives," Dindoffer said. "But
the Lions never wanted to hold Mr.
Edgar's money from him. Until we got
the tickets, we couldn't respond in any
manner to Mr. Edtgar's request."
Cubs sign Jenkins
CHICAGO (AP) - Pitchers Fergie
Jenkins and Willie Hernandez and out-
fielder Jay Johnstone signed multiyear
contracts with the Chicago Cubs
In the end there was only one winner -
one man who stood head and shoulders
above the competition. Mike Peters,
you had a 16-4 record last week to run
your two-week total to 30-10. Mike will
soon be the proud owner of a Pizza
Bob's pizza. He is now the victor
valiant and the champion of the west.
Or maybe he's just incredibly lucky and
actually knows nothing at all about
So now it is time to close up the Grid-
des shop for the season. We had some
firsts this season. Jim Sadler won three
times to run his career total to four.
Women won three times, another Grid-
des first. And I managed to insult ap-
proximately 2.4 million people in this
tiny space. If I didn't insult your dorm
or social group, it is simply because it's
not even worth mentioning.
Jenkins and Johnstone signed two-
year contracts and Hernandez was
signed to a three-year pact. No other
terms were revealed.
JENKINS, who will be 39 in two
weeks, was 14-15 with the Cubs last
season when he reached the 3,000
strikeout plateau and topped the star-
ters with a nighty 3.15 earned run
average. He has 278 career victories
and hopes to reach the coveted 300
mark sometime during the 1984 season.
Hernandez, 27, led the staff in ap-
pearances with 75, had a 4-6 record with
16 saves and a 3.00 ERA.
Johnstone, 36, came to the Cubs as a
free agent June 4 after he had been
released by the Los Angeles Dodgers.
In 98 games with the Cubs, Johnstone
had 10 homer and 43 runs batted in.
General Manager Dallas Green
called the players "Three key guys in
our plans for the future."
