TURNER'S 26 SPARKS 86-74 VICTORY

Wolverines blast

Kansas

By JOHN KERR
Consider' the big question answered,
and consider it answered in quite a con-
vincing manner - the Michigan
basketball team can stay with a
legitimate opponent.
After playing such schools as Central
Michigan, Akron and Northern
Michigan, the Wolverines trounced the
Kansas Jayhawks, 86-74, last night at
Crisler Arena and it wasn't even a con-
test. Michigan, outrebounded, outshot,
and simply outplayed Kansas, taking
a quick early lead and never trailing.
"I THOUGHT that we played fairly
well tonight," Michigan basketball
coach Bill Frieder said after his team
increased its record to 4-0. "It was
definitely the best we've played in a
game (this season). I think that getting
off to a good start was very helpful."

It was the Wolverine guard com-
bination . of Eric Turner and Leslie
Rockymore that allowed Michigan to
get in front early. Turner and
Rockymore were simply too quick for
the Kansas guards, forcing turnovers
and keeping them from running the
Jayhawk offense early in the game.
This, coupled with some hot Michigan
shooting, helped the Wolverines jump
to a 15-3 lead with just over five minutes
gone in the first half. Kansas never
came closer than 10 points the rest of
the game.
Turner led all Michigan scorers with
26 points, while Rockymore added 16.
Senior forward Isaac Person also
played well, scoring 17 points and grab-
bing 11 rebounds. Kansas freshman
forward Kerry Boagni led all scorers
with 27 points.

THE MOST important statistic, ac-
cording to Frieder, was Michigan's 44-
33 rebounding advantage. "I think
rebounding was a key," he said. "That
was a crucial, crucial thing to rebound
with them."
After taking the quick lead, the
rebounding helped the Wolverines
sustain it. Michigan led by as many as
18 points in the first half, but with the
score 37-19 with four minutes left the
Jayhawks defense went into a press,
and the Wolverines began to turn the
ball over. Kansas scored 11 of the next
15 points and closed the gap to 41-30 at
the half.
In the second half it seemed like Kan-
sas was ready to make a move, but the
Wolverines wouldn't buckle and kept on
increasing their lead. When Person hit
both ends of a one-and-one with 13:581
left to play, Michigan led 60-39, and two
minutes later, when Rockymore hit a
18-foot jumper, the Wolverines were on
top, 66-44.
THE JAYHAWKS then tried to make
a last ditch move, but found that

Michigan had an answer for
everything. The two squads traded
buckets on six straigt possessions to
make the score 78-56 with only 7:36
remaining, and it was all over. The
Jayhawks managed to turn the rest of
the game into a foul-shooting contest,
and narrowed the gap to 12 by the end of
the game.
Kansas coach Ted Owens said his
team simply didn't do what was
necessary to win the game.
"Going into the game we said that
there were four important factors," he
said. "First we had to compete on the
boards, and we didn't do that. Second
we had to stop their break, and we
didn't do that, although it wasn't much
of a factor. Third we had to control
their guards, and we obviously didn't do
that, and fourth we had to move their
defense and we didn't do that."
And because Kansas couldn't accom-
plish its four goals, Frieder can smile.
"It was a great victory for
Michigan," he said, "beating a team
like Kansas with such a great
tradition."

By KATIE BLACKWELL
The Michigan men's swim team
opened its 1982-83 season in a very in-
teresting way. The men's squad com-
bined its talents with the Wolverne
women tankers of place third behind a
very strong Florida State and the
University of Calgary in the three day
Canada Cup. It also marked the debut
of-new Michigan Men's coach, Jon Ur-
banchek.
The meet, held in the Olympium in
Toronto, gave the tankers a taste of in-
*ernational competition early in the
season. Pleased at the chance for such
competition, women's coach Stu Isaac
said, "Normally we have to go halfway
across the country to swim against
poople like this."
:"It was a worthwhile trip," stated
Urbanchek, "Some freshmen had a
chance to prove their abilities, and did.
There was a talented class of swim-
mers in the meet. Many of them are
o'ssible representatives from the 1984
'lympics." The stiff competition in-
Cluded 15 swimmers from the 1980
Canadian Olympic team, seven from
the U.S. Olympic team and four current
world-record holders.
~BOTH COACHES had anticipated
Atheir team's performances. Isaac said,
"t was moderately happy with our suc-
cess. None of our individual perfor-

mances surprised me." He cited Tami
Paumier and Chris Hodson for their
freestyle exhibition. Sue Cahill, defen-
ding AIAW champ in the 400 IM, was
faster in that eient than last year at
this time.
The men's most impressive victory
came in the 750-cresendo relay. Mark
Noetzel (50 freestyle), Kirstan Vander-
sluis (100 freestyle), captain Bruce
Gemmell (200 freestyle) and Benoit
Clement (400 freestyle) finished first,
outdistancing their opponents by five
seconds.

nada Cup
Clement, a freshman, continued to
prove himself as he finished seventh in
the 200 freestyle, second in the 1500
freestyle and aided teammates'. Van-
dersluis, Andy Montagur and Noetzel to
fifth-place finish in the 400 freestyle
relay.
The men will travel to Ypsilanti,
Friday, to take on the Eastern
Michigan Hurons at 7:30 p.m., while th
women will stay home to host Oakland
Unviersity in Matt Mann Pool at 6:30
p.m.
