old rivalry continues
By JIM DWORMAN
Reload the guns. Eric Turner and Sam Vincent will
duel again tonight at Jenison Field House in East ;
Lansing as Michigan faces Michigan State in basket-
ball. And Vincent is ready to come out shooting.
"I always get fired up when I play against Eric,"
said the Spartan guard. "Our rivalry goes back to ;
11th grade. It adds a little intensity to tfie game."
AND A LOT of scoring, too. In last Saturday's con-
test between the two, both fired in 25 points. Turner, 1
however, threw up 30 shots while Vincent only took 17;
shots in his team's 70-65 victory.1
Winning, of course, is the key to the rivalry and
Vincent has the longer key chain. As a high school
junior, the Lansing native and his Eastern High
School team (which included current Wolverine for-
ward Robert Henderson) traveled to Flint Central
and beat Turner's squad. The following year Turner
and Central went to Lansing and whipped Vincent 1
Both earned All-American honors that year and :
were the subject of an intense recruiting war between;
the Wolverines and the Spartans. As history notes,
the players remained on separate paths.
"I REALLY was interested in Michigan at a time,"
recalled Vincent. "Eric was already there - he and I
are good friends - and I had a lot of respect for coach
Frieder and his staff. They really did a good job ofi
"But I wanted to stay at home. I have a lot of fan
support here. I probably would have had a lot at
Michigan, since it's still in the state, but not like here.
You know, a lot of people talk about going out of state
and getting away from Michigan, but really, there's
nothing like just staying home."
An 11.7 scoring average and two wins over Turner
and Michigan gave Vincent a good reason to enjoy
last season in his hometown. His year, however,
might have been more enjoyable were it not for the
presence of senior Kevin Smith in the Spartan back-
court. Smith's style clashed with Vincent's - it was
too similar - and the result was a less productive
year than expected from the brother of one-time Big
Ten scoring leader Jay Vincent.
"I GUESS WE were both the same type of guards
- mainly shooters," said Vincent. "We both could
bring the ball up court and we both liked to shoot."
This year, there is no such conflict between the
Michigan State guards. Freshman Scott, Skiles
meshes well with Michigan's original high school Mr.
Basketball. "Scott's more of a point guard than
Kevin, even though he scores very well," said Vin-
And it was the combination of Vincent, Skiles and
forward Derek Perry which stopped the Wolverines
in Crisler. The trio totaled 54 points in that contest

The Michigan squad, which is 4-0
overall (3-0 in the Big Ten), will be
using this meet primarily as a tune-up
for the Big Ten championships, accor-
ding to coach Jon Urbanchek.
THE BUCKEYES are led by All-
American David Cowell in the butterfly
events, and by reigning Big Ten cham-
pion Gregory Masica in the long-
distance freestyle races.
Michigan's All-American diver Bruce
Kimball will also see his toughest
challenge of the year, according to Ur-
banchek. The Buckeye's 1-2 diving
combination of All-Americans Mark
Bradshaw and DougShaffer should put
Kimball to the test.
Facing an Ohio State team with
several All-American swimmers will
give the Wolverines an idea of what
they will be up against in the Big Ten
and Natinal Collegiate Athletic
Association championships later in the
"Ohio State has an outstanding dual
meet team," remarked Urbanchek,
"but we should be able to win it."'
The meet will begin at 3:00 this after-
noon in the Matt Mann Pool.
Wearer joins Panthers
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) -
Former Detroit Lions punter Herman
Weaver has joined the training camp of
the United States Football League
Michigan Panthers as a free agent, the
club said yesterday.
Weaver, an 11-year veteran of the
National Football League with the
Lions and later the Seattle Seahawks is
vying for the punting job with Scott
Essery of'the University of Windsor,
Panther spokesman Jerry Kissell said.
WEAVER PLAYED seven years for
the Lions, who took him in the ninth
round of the 1970 draft. The University
of Tennessee graduate compiled a
career punting average of 40.3 yards.
Weaver's best year was in 1973, when
he averaged 43.2 yards a punt. Weaver
has been out of football since 1981,
Lopez loses battle
DETROIT (AP) - The Detroit Tigers
won their arbitration battle with relief
pitcher Aurelio Lopez, the baseball club
An arbitrator in Chicago ruled that
Lopez should be paid $250,000 in 1983,
which is what the Tigers offered the
right-hander. It is $30,000 less than
Lopez made last year. Lopez had asked
UNDER MAJOR league rules, the
arbitrator must award either the offer
made by the team or the player's
request, but cannot compromise.
Lopez spent much of last year with
the club's American Association farm
team at Evansville, Ind. He quit the
team with two weeks left in the season
to return to his native Mexico, but
rejoined the Tigers during the winter.
The decision, confirmed by Tigers
spokeswoman Audrey Zielinski, leaves
the American League club with a 2-1
arbitration record this year.
Pitcher Dan Petry won his case, for-
cing the club to pay him $390,000 this
year, $40,000 more than the Tigers of-
fered and $215,000 more than he made
last year. Outfielder Kirk Gibson,
sidelined much of last year with in-
juries, lost his case. He asked for
$275,000, but will receive $220,000, a 10
percent pay increase over 1982.
Hagler stops Sibson
BLUE JINSJ110-38 4
WORCESTER, Mass. (UPI) - Mar-
velous Marvin Hagler knocked down
Tony Sibson twice and ripped his face
into a bloody mass, stopping the
Englishman in the sixth round last
night to retain the undisputed mid-
dleweight championship of the world.
The 28-year-old Hagler, operating
with a surgeon's precision, just had too
many weapons for the game
challenger. Sibson hung tough right to
IN THE SIXTH round, following a
toe-to-toe exchange, Sibson went down
from a left-right, left-right high to the
head. The 24-year-old challenger got up
immediately and took the mandatory
eight count from referee Carlos
Sibson then tried to fight back and the
two went at it toe-to-toe before Sibson
dropped to his knees from two rights to

he could handle in the sixth round when

Villanora 78, Pitt 65
VILLANOVA, Pa. (AP) - Senior
center John Pinone, recovering from a
week-long bout with the flu, scored 25
points to lead 12th ranked Villanova to a
78-65 victory over Pitt in Big East
college basketball last night.
About 3,000 fans packed the stands at
the Villanova field house, despite a bliz-
zard that had dropped 20 inches of snow
in nearby Philadelphia. The Panthers
had arrived in town Thursday night.
THE VICTORY gave Villanova a 9-2
record in the Big East and a first-place
tie with idle St. John's. The Wildcats
are 16-4 overall.
Junior forward Clyde Vaughan's 22
points topped Pitt, now 5-6 in the con-
ference and 12-9 overall.

"This meet is a tune up for the Big
Ten championship," said Michigan
women's swim team coach Stu Isaac
before last nights meet against Eastern
And it turned out to be exactly that,
as the Wolverines destroyed the Hurons
110-38 last night at Matt Mann pool.
"We really concentrated on tuning up
our strokes for the Big Tens," said
Isaac. "It really worked. There were
more seasonal bests at this meet than
against Ohio State and Indiana.
This meet was not like swimming
against Indiana or Ohio State, and to
have this kind of performance without
that incentive is fabulous."
Isaac cited many women as having
had outstanding performances.
However, he said that Leslie Beckstein
had, "the best overall performance of
anyone in the meet.''
Beckstein won the 200-yard freestyle
and the 50-yard Butterfly with times of
1:56.40 and :27.17 respectively.
ISAAC ALSO singled out a group of
girls in particular as being impressive,
"The diving is really important" sa'
Isaac. "They dove championship styl
diving 11 times in both the three-meter
and the one-meter dive. Martha
(Dresbach) and Angie (Porreta) were
Once the meet was no longer in
question, the Wolverines went to people
who had not seen much action during
the year. One of these people was Vicki
Kimball, who usually dives.
ONE OF THE major factors in is
using these other people was Isaac'
desire to build the confidence of thi
team as a whole.
"From here on in we are building on
confidence and working on the little
things," said Isaac. "the hard work is
"Confidence on a close team like ours
can be contagious. The people who
have done it before, the team leaders
their confidence has to be contagious."
