With the playoffs into their second week, the IM basketball tournament is getting
into the final rounds of competition. Semi-final games will be played this week,
and the finals will be contested the week after vacation.
Fraternity A
Chi Phi won its first round tournament game last Wednesday, and stayed un-
defeated with a hard fought 46-39 victory over Sigma Alpha Epsilon. The Chi Phi's
featured a balanced scoring attack with Brian Conybeane, Larry Fromm, and Carl
Schwartz each contributing 10 points toward the victory. "We got off to an early
lead and held off a late surge to preserve a very tough victory," commented
Dave Liederbach sunk a free throw with 10 seconds remaining on the clock to
give Phi Delta Theta a 35-34 victory over previously unbeaten Kappa Alpha Psi.
Phi Delta Theta jumped out to an early 13-point spread and led by nine at the half.
But Kappa Alpha came right back and tied the game for the first time in the
closing minute. Pete Gutman led all scorers with 10 points.
Fraternity B
A strong second-half performance lifted Delta Kappa Epsilon to a 43-36 win over
Delta Upsilon. Delta Upsilon jumped out to an early half lead, but Epsilon came
back with a 33-point second half to win going away. Peter Mamlikowski led the
surge with 15 points. "We really woke up in the second half. It was like two dif-
ferent teams out there," commented captain Dave Ottto.
Chi Psi took a hardfought, 39-38 thriller from Theta Chi on a jump shot with a
minute-and-one-half to play. Theta Chi threw the ensuing inbound pass out-of-
bounds off a player's knee, and Chi Psi held on for the victory. Al Morris led all
scorers with 20 points for Theta Chi. Captain John Nyboer commented on the
win, The whole key was the inbound pass. That's what gave us the win."
n Mossad advanced to the Independant A Semi-finals with a 51-26 trashing of
Markees. Mossad grabbed the lead early, and then ran away with it. Markees only
had five players, and two of them fouled out midway throough the second half.
Mossad was led by Howard Wopen who topped the scoring column with 10 points.
The Marauders also advanced into the Semis with a, 33-28, victory over the
Blowouts. The Marauders trailed by five at the half, but came back with the first
eight points of the second session, gaining the momentum and the ball game.
John Marklin had a productive night wiht a game-high 14 points for the winners.

Keeping Score

Icers set for playoffs .. .
...watching from the stands

FOR THE Michigan hockey team, the best part
of the race for the Central Collegiate Hockey
Association playoffs occurred last weekend. It en-
While it is still mathematically possible for the
Wolverines to get into the post-season activities,
the only way they will see the finals is by going to
Joe Louis Arena to watch from the stands. The
four games left, against Lake Superior and
Michigan Tech, will undoubtedly close the book on
what has been a disappointing year in Michigan
Not since the 1978-79 season, when the icers
missed the WCHA playoffs with an 8-27-1 record,
has a Michigan team played so poorly, and while
there is blame to be laid for the team's troubles,
the bottom line rests with players who didn't
"I guess I'm down, like I probably should be, but
I'm not going to rip into anybody," said Michigan
coach John Giordano. "We're just going to go out
there (for the final games) and try to play hard
and let the rest fall into place."
Place for the Wolverines may well be eleventh
in the twelve-team CCHA, if Michigan continues
its current level of play. At the start of the season
it was defensive mistakes by first-year players
that hurt the team. Then it was a slump in offen-
sive production for the second part of the season.
Finally, in losing two games to Ferris State last
weekend, it was a lack of both offense and defense.

New blood, same story
Certainly Giordano and the team can be excused
for inexperience and injuries. Eleven prominent
Wolverine players had less than three games of
NCAA Division I experience before the season,
and defensive, leader John DeMartino, a transfer
from Division II Michigan-Dearborn, spent the
majority of the season on crutches before retur-
ning against Ferris.'
Add to this a schedule that includes nationally-
ranked Bowling Green, Michigan State, Ohio
State, and Michigan Tech and you have the
makings of a poor season. Surely, the Wolverines
can't be faulted for their play against these teams,
where their record stands at 1-10.
Instead, the fault comes with the fact Michigan
has been consistently unable to beat competition
at its own level. Losing twice to Miami, three of
four to Ferris State, and splitting with Lake
Superior, Notre Dame and Western Michigan has
doomed the Wolverines. The team was able to play
sloppy, mistake-filled games every Friday night
before showing the talent they were supposed to
have on Saturday. Losing games to second-
division teams makes a second-division team, and
the Wolverines put themselves in a deep hole.
Bad luck and good recruiting
If the hockey team can't clear the puck from in

front of its own net after a save, then the other
team is bound to score. If the Wolverines get only
20 shots on a net, but surrender 40, then shell-
shock, and not victories, will be the result.
Luck hasn't been with the icers either, as they
have spent much of the year watching breakaway
passes bounce harmlessly over sticks, or open
nets suddenly turn into solid steel pipes. That
aside, however, there is a lot of room for im-
provement on the Michigan hockey team.
Giordano has a verbal commitment from one
prominent Minnesota recruit, has five more on the
line, and is hungrily pursuing Notre Dame's All-
CCHA defenseman Sean Regan. The addition of
these players might make for a first-class team, or
the fans might have to suffer through another
wait-until-we-get-some-experience-and-then- we'll=
win season.
"I think we'll bring in six players who can play
right away," said Giordano. "We need three cen-
ters right away, but we're going after a good left
wing and another defenseman. I think we proved
last year that we can recruit with some of the best
teams in the nation."
If Giordano can bring in six new players to
revitalize the lineup as well as replace leaders,
such as Ted Speers, Brad Tippett and Joe Milburn,
then Michigan might be able to make the playoffs
next year. Needing those new players, however,
may say a lot about why the team will watch the
playoffs now.

women cagers fall to MSU again


Prof. Gur Offer
(Shalom Achshav)

The third time was not the charm for
the Michigan women's basketball
team, as it lost to Michigan State for the
third time this season, 77-67, at Crisler
Arena Sunday. The loss also dropped
the Wolverines' all-time record to 2-16
against their arch-rivals.

Despite the relative ease with which-
the Spartans beat Michigan, coach
Gloria Soluk was pleased with the effor-
ts of her Wolverines. "We felt good in
there," she said. "We gave them all
they could handle."
BUT AT THE start of the game it was
Spartan forward Lil Preston, who was
giving the Wolverines all they could
handle. Midway through the first half
Preston hit for eight points in less than
three minutes to give Michigan State a
24-16 lead.

st half, Bradetich was held to just three
shots in the second half. She finished
with 18 points.
"Wendy really didn't play well in the
second half," coach Soluk said. "She
has a stress fracture so we have to rest
Peg Harte added 14 points for
Michigan but was only five-of-20 from
the field. As a team Michigan shot 38
percent (28-74), compared to Michigan
State's 51 percent (32-63).
The loss, which was Michigan's
eighth straight, dropped its record to 3-
17, 1-9 in the Big Ten. The Spartans up-
ped their record to 7-12, 3-7 in conferen-
ce play.
Michigan 's next game is Friday night
against Illinois at Crisler Arena.

At that point Soluk put little-used
forward Terri Soullier into the game to
cover Preston and the 5-10 junior
responded, holding Preston scoreless
for the next seven minutes, as Michigan
pulled to within three, 28-25.
While Soullier provided the defense,
center Wendy Bradetich sizzled on of-
fense. The 6-0 freshman hit seven of 10
shots in the first half, to keep the
Wolverines in striking distance, 36-31.
BUT, AS has happened so often this
year, Michigan was worn down by its
taller opponents. Mary Kay McNall, the
6-3 freshman Spartan center, led all
scorers with 24 points, mostly short
jump shots. Spartan coach Karen
Langeland praised McNall's work.
"McNall played well," she said. "She
wanted to prove she's much better than
how she played last week (against
Langeland also cited her team's
ability to adjust to Michigan's man-to-
man defense as a key to the win. "We
did not do a good job of isolating
Preston against the man-to-man in the
first half," she explained. "But we did
in the second half." Preston finished
with 18 points and 16 rebounds.
ANOTHER contributing factor to the
, Spartans' second half success was their
stopping of Bradetich. After her hot fir-

'M' cites anniversary
of women's athletics

Ak' Jan.24' Feb.18

At halftime of last Sunday's women's
basketball game between Michigan and
Michigan State, a brief ceremony
commemorating the 10th anniversary
of varsity intercollegiate competition
for Michigan women was held.
Associate Director of Athletics in
charge of women's sports Phyllis Ocker
prepared the celebration.
THE FESTIVITIES included an in-
troduction of several supporting alum-
ni, and the presentation of four awards
to women athletes.
Among the alumni introduced was
Eunicg Burns, who chaired an eight--
person committee to study the question
of intercollegiate athletics for women
back in 1973. In November of that year,
the committee submitted its report and
the regents voted to establish a varsity
athletics program for women.
Also introduced was Marie Hartwig
(class of '29), currently professor
emeritus and the first women's athletic
director. The first annual Marie Har-
twig Scholarship Award, honoring a top
female athlete, was presented to
Michigan volleyball star Jeanne

receiving the award, Weckler said that
"inequality" is still a problem.
"It is distrubing having to practice
(volleyball) in the CCRB with people
playing basketball and running around
the track," said the junior spiker.
"Because the CCRB is a public
facility we can't charge any money (for
games). Travelling is also unequal.
We (women) have to bus, while men get

"The situation for women and all
sports at MSU is essentially the same
ds at Michigan," said Lindahl. "At
State we have the big three-football,
basketball, and hockey-that generate
all the money. Then all the other 21
sports, both men and women, are
placed on the same level. All of those
sports have their own budget, facility

"With transportation, the safety of 4
the athletes comes first," said Ocker.
"Most men's teams drive to their
respective events."
Three other awardees were honored.
Kay McCarthy, Michigan field hockey's
leading scorer was Athlete of the Month
for October. Lisa Larsen, co-captain of
cross-country and track, selected for
November. And Peg Harte of basket-
ball received the award for the month
of January.
At the conclusion of her halftime
speech Ocker summed up the feelings
of most Michigan supporters. "We are;.
looking forward to another year of suc-
cessful women athletics."
