Hail to the victors! l
The intramural basketball season culminated in several hard fought battles
this weekend as the program crowned its 1983 champions. Here are the final
Phi Gamma Delta 36, Psi Upsilon 35: In a wild, madcap finish, the
Fiji's Jim Yagle hit a 13-foot jumper at the buzzer to give Phi Gamma Delta
the 'A' division championship and complete a perfect, undefeated season.
Phi Gamma Delta, which led by as much as nine points late in the game,
saw its lead whittled to two points with 54 seconds left, when they fouled out
their second player and were forced to play with four men the rest of the con-
test. Psi Upsilson then converted a free throw, and Gregg Rohlin put them up
35-34 with a layup with 15 seconds left. This set up Yagle's game-winning
shot. "Both teams were evenly matched and played really good defense,"
said Phi Gamma Delta's Tom Lepp who led all scorers with 18 points.
In other fraternity action, Sigma Alpha Epsilon downed Sigma Phi Ep-i
silon, 43-34 in the 'B' division championship.
Jammin Reevers 59, Kelsey Roots Blue 40: Kyle Hickey's 16
points paced the Jammin Reevers of Markley Hall past Kelsey to earn the
Reevers the 'A' division title. Kelsey led at halftime, 19-18, but a combination
of Reever scoring balance and Kelsey's foul trouble allowed the Reevers to
pull away at the end of the game. Kelsey only had two players at the finale,
the rest having fouled out. "It would hve been a very different game if they
hadn't gotten so many fouls," commented Reever captain John Allen.
Couzens 'B' 51, Huber 86 Stoners 44: After trailing for most of the
game, Couzens overcame Huber in the final quarter and held on to win the
'B' division crown. Couzens' ability to work the ball inside and their sinking
of several key free throws down the stretch solidified the victory. "It was a
real balanced attack, and everyone got in on it," said team captain Dave
Evans Scholars 37, T's Problem 30: T's Problem this game was
Mary Bitkowski of Evans Scholars. Bitkowski notched 26 points despite a
full-court pres by T's for most of the game. Bitkowski also sparked her team
with several long hoops after T's pulled to within two points in the fourth
quarter. Evans captain, Dave Goltz said his team's strategy was to "feed
Mary and let her shoot" which was too much for T's to figure out.
MTS 41, Breakers 37: The Breakers put forth a valiant effort before,
they finally broke under the MTS attack in this 'A' division championship.
The game was "neck and neck" according to MTS's Karen Clapp, although
the MTS never relinquished the lead once they got it in the second half. Pen-
ny Neer led the MTS in scoring and also cleared the board on numerous oc-
In the Women's 'B' final, Bast's Batallions batered the H.B.'s 32-25.

Tumblers fifth in Big
By PAUL RESNICK
Illinois, led by Kari Samsten and
Charles Lakes, came from behind to
earn a first place tie with Ohio State at
the Big Ten gymnastics championships
last Friday and Saturday in Iowa City.
Going into the last event, high bar,
Illinois was in third place, behind both
the Buckeyes and Iowa, but Samsten
and Lakes both scored 9.8 to propel the
Illini into a tie with OSU at 276.65, while
Iowa finished with 276.50. Minnesota
was close behind, scoring 275.90.
MICHIGAN fielding a full team for
the first time in three weeks, scored
268.50 to capture fifth place in the team
competition well ahead of both Wiscon-
sin and Michigan State. "We could have
been in the cellar," said Wolverine
coach Newt Loken, "so we're pleased.
I'm extremely proud of the full team ef-
fort we received."
The key to staying out of the cellar
was Dino Manus, who hadn't practiced
or competed for three and a half weeks
because of a pulled rotator cuff in his
shoulder. Manus managed scores in the
high 8's in three events and a 9.65 on
rings. "He really showed guts swinging
through the pain," said Loken.
The Wolverines placed six men in the
individual finals, held Saturday, and
captured seven awards, which went to
the top six finishers in each event.
MIKE McKEE shared the floor exer-
cise title with Iowa's Dan Bachman,
scoring 9.5. "It's the greatest thing
that's happened to him," said Loken.
"He's worked extremely hard during
his career at Michigan and taking first
was a great way to finish up."
Kevin McKee, who shared the floor
exercise title last year, fell during the
opening round and did not qualify for
the finals. Kevin did qualify for the
vaulting finals, however, where he
finished fourth with 9.5, just behing
teammate Milan Stanovich, who ti
for second with 9.55. Stanovich also too
sixth in the high bar scoring 9.4, and
eighth in the all-around competition.
On still rings, Rick Kaufmann
finished second, .05 behind Frank
Rosch of Illinois,9.7, and Dino Manus
placed fifth with 9.25. "It was so close,"
said Loken of Kaufmann's narrow loss
to Rosch. "Either one of them could
have won. It was just a matter of how
the judging came out."
Ann Arbor native Dave Millel
provided the biggest surprise for
Michigan, scoring 9.35 to place second
in parallel bar competition. "Holy
Croly," said Loken. "He's had an up
and down season, so that was perhaps
the highlight of the meet."
All six finalists were seniors. "The
fact that all six received awards is a
tribute to four years of hard work on
their part," said Loken.
SPOR TS OF THE DAIL Y
coach dead at 57
By MIKE MCGRAW
College hockey lost its winningest
coach ever Sunday when former
Michigan Tech mentor John MacInnes
passed away at his home in Houghton.
His 555-295-39 record during his 22-year
coaching career is tops in college
MacInnes, 57, played his college
hockey at Michigan from 1946-50 and
was a key figure in the Wolverines'
dominance of the sport under then
coach Vic Heyliger. After graduating
from Michigan, the Toronto native en-
tered the Ann Arbor business world and
served as the director of the Ann Arbor
Hockey Association. Recently, that
group inaugurated a sportsmanship
trophy in his name.

MacInnes guided his team to three
NCAA titles, most recently in 1975, and
was twice named the national coach-of-
the-year. He coached such All-
Americans as'Tony Esposito and Mike
MacInnes had a winning record
against every WCHA opponent, in-
cluding a 59-52-2 record against
Michigan. He coached in the WCHA for
all but his final year and won seven con-.

Wolverines came during the '81-'82
season when, Michigan defeated the
Huskies in overtime 3-2 at Yost Arena.
MacInnes retired after that season, and
assistant coach Jim Nahrgang too
over the head spot.
MacInnes is survived by his wife
Jerry and their two children.
