WOLVERINES RACE TO 73-39 WIN

Tankers swamp

By ADAM SCHWARTZ
The Michigan swim team was almost perfect last
night at Matt Mann Pool where it took first place in every
event, except two. The result was a 73-39 victory over
Wisconsin.
As the lopsided score indicates, there were plenty of
Michigan stars. But Wolverine head coach Jon Urban-
chek cited three performers in particular for their out-
standing performances: Benoit Clement, Mark Noetzel,
and Lance Schroeder.
NOETZEL GOT the Wolverines rolling by coming from
behind in the anchor leg of the opening event, the 400-yard
medley relay, an event that Urbanchek called,
"something we needed to win, to get the ball rolling."

Noetzel also won the 50- and 100-yard freestyle in times of
:21.42 and :46.12.
Clement won the 200-yard freestyle, the 500-yard
freestyle, and anchored the victorious 400-yard freestyle
relay. Schoeder won the 200-yard butterfly, missing the
school record by .1 seconds with a time of 1:50.3.
The Wolverines did not enter a swimmer in the 200-yard
breaststroke and entered only one performer in the 500-
yard freestyle. Urbanchek did this as not to run up the
score against former Michigan teammate, Wisconsin
coach Jack Pettinger.
PETTINGER said that "they (Michigan) have been
improving all year. If they continue they will be real
tough in the Big Ten. We were outclassed tonight."

isconsi
When asked what he thought his team's chances were in
the Big Ten, Urbanchek said, "We can keep up with
anyone in the conference in dual meets. Our real test will
be Indiana whom we face Jan. 28 at home. They are a
team that we have only beaten once in the past 20 years.
That will be the true test of how good a dual meet team we
have. A realistic goal for us will be second place in the Big
Ten."
Urbanchek closed his comments by saying "team unity
was apparent today, something it hadn't been
previously."
The team continues it's dual meet competition Jan. 21 at
Purdue. The next home meet will be Jan. 28 against In-
diana at 7:30 at Matt Mann Pool.

Grapplers debut at Crisler

The Michigan wrestling team opens its
Big Ten season tonight with a home match
against Northwestern.
The match, which will take place at 7:30
p.m. at Crisler Arena, is expected to be a
close one. Northwestern is a much improved
team said assistant wrestling coach Joe
Wells. "Northwestern has placed a lot more
emphasis on its entire athletic program
which is indicative of the improvement in
both their football and basketball teams as
well as their wrestling team," he said.
FOR MICHIGAN, it is expected that team
points will be scored at 158 pounds with a
victory from captain Tim Fagan and at 167
pounds and heavyweight from Scott and
Rob Rechsteiner, respectively. Likewise,

Northwestern is looking for team points
from Richard Decatur (118 pounds), Matt
Clark (142 pounds) and Mike Rosman (150
pounds).
The tide of the match is expected to hinge
on the outcome of the matches at 134, 177
and 190 pounds. The match at 134 pounds
pits Michigan sophomore Steve Wright
against Northwestern's Mike Power. At 177
pounds sophomore transfer Bill Elbin, who
" presently has a 2-0 record, will face the
Wildcats' Dave Tomeck.
Finally, at 190 pounds, the Wolverines'
Kirk Trost will take his record of 13-6, in-
cluding 4 pins, against Regis Durbin. All
these matches are expected to be close and
are expected to determine the outcome of
the match. "If we can keep close in the early
matches we should be able to get some

distance in the later matches," said Wells.
NORTHWESTERN already has had its
first Big Ten dual meet which gave it a vic-
tory over last year's second-place Big Ten
team, Minnesota.
"This is the start of the important part of
the season," said Wells. "Really, what took
place over Christmas vacation was
preparation for this (the Big Ten season)."
One note of interest; having compiled 13
pins between them thus far this season, the
Rechsteiner brothers are now referred to as
the "Rechsteiner wrecking crew." Presen-
tly Scott is in the lead with seven pins to his
credit, while Rob has six. Last year's team
leader, All-American Pat McKay (190-
pounds), had a grand total of eight pins
during the entire season.

EAST LANSING (UP I) - Junior center
Kevin Willis and forward Derek Perry each
scored 17 points last night to join four players
in double figures and lift Michigan State to an
86-66 Big Ten triumph over Wisconsin.
Both teams were sluggish at the outset as
the Badgers crept to a 10-7 lead but Michigan
State unleashed a stifling defense and its
scoring balance to assume control of the con-'
test.
WISCONSIN'S Cory Blackwell paced the
losers with 20 and point guard Ricky Olson
left the contest with his third foul as the
Badgers trailed 13-12 with 10:51 remaining in
the half. The Spartans took advantage of his
absence its the backcourt and trounced the
Badgers with a series of steals.
Offensively, the Spartans went on a 17-4
scoring rampage and assumed a 24-14 lead
with 6:01 left in the half.
Purdue 64, Ohio State 57
WEST LAFAYETTE, (AP) - Sopho-
more forward Jim Bullock scored a career-
high 18 points and ailing center Russell Cross
added 17 last night as Purdue, reeling off 13
straight points against foul-plagued Ohio
State in the second half, beat the 20th-ranked
Buckeyes 64-57 in a Big Ten Conference
basketball game.
The Boilermakers, 2-1 in the conference and
11-2 for the season, took control when Ohio
State's big men got into foul trouble midway

through the final period. The Buckeyes, who
led by 10 pointy in the first half, still led by
five when 6-foot-10 freshman Keith Wesson
picked up his fourth foul.
Steve Reid, who finished with 15 points,
then started the Purdue rally with a three-
point goal and Bullock hit two free throws to
tie the game. Greg Eifert put Purdue ahead
to stay, 40-38, with two free throws as Wesson
fouled out with 8:47 to go.
Indiana 69, Illinois 55
CHAMPAIGN (AP) - Indiana's starting
front line of Ted Kitchel, Randy Wittman and
Uwe Blab scored a combined total of 60 points
to lead the fourth-ranked Hoosiers to a 69-55
victory over Illinois last night.
Wittman scored 27 points, 17 of which came
in the second half. Kitchel added 20 points
and Blab had 13.
Iowa 66, Northwestern 57
CHICAGO (AP) - Greg Stokes scored
seven straight points early in the second half
last night to put Iowa ahead to stay and the
12th-ranked Hawkeyes rolled to a 66-57 vic-
tory which knocked Northwestern out of sole
possession of first place in the Big Ten.
Stokes led the Hawkeyes with 17 points
while Jim Stack topped Northwestern with 25.
Andre Goode added 16 points for North-
western while Mark Gannon had 13 for Iowa.

Need a place to study*..
STry Crisler Arena
D EEP DOWN, Bill Frider really has to wonder. I mean the
guy struggles through a 7-20 season last year, works his
butt off to recruit five quality freshmen, guides his young team
to a 9-1 non-conference record, and still can't get 13,609 people
down to Crisler Arena to see his team.
What does Frieder have to do to generate interest in Michigan
basketball?
Wednesday, in Michigan's Big Ten home opener against Min-
nesota, the official attendance was 10,568. They must have coun-
ted the concession workers, janitors, and ticket-takers because
about half of the gold seats were obviously empty. That is just
ridiculous. The Big Ten showcases what is arguably the best
college basketball in the country and Minnesota was ranked
among the nation's top 20 teams. Yet over 3,000 seats were em-
pty. Pathetic.
This year's Michigan basketball team is the most exciting
Wolverine squad in many years. Slam dunks? Just check out
Richard Rellford. Great passes? Ever heard of Eric Turner?
Aggressive play and good rebounding? The names Butch Wade
Tim McCormick, Robert Henderson, Roy Tarpley, and Paul
Jokisch come to mind. Big scorers? Leslie Rockymore and
Turner once again. The Wolverines aren't going to win the Big
Ten title this year but they're a team of the future and deserve
more support than they are getting.
They don't want to disturb anyone
The fact is, the enthusiasm of Michigan fans is, to put it very
mildly, sorely lacking, and the problem is not just one of atten-
dance. The whole atmosphere of a Michigan home basketball
game is the opposite of what it should be. Hell, it's louder in the
graduate library's second floor study lounge than at Crisler
Arena.
For most of the fans that turn out to see the Wolverines, get-
ting crazy means going for the nachos with cheese and jalapenos
instead of the popcorn. In the Minnesota game the fans showed
some aigns of life, but most of that was due to the enthusiastic
gesticulations of Henderson, Wade, and Turner. Wade brought
the crowd alive by jumping around giving high-fives to Hender-
son, and Turner got a response by turning toward the student
section and raising his arms. But all it takes is one basket by the
opposition and the fans suddenly fall silent.
That is why Crisler Arena must be a home away from home
for most Big Ten schools. It's got to be the friendliest place for a
visiting team to play other than its home court. A snakepit it is
not.
If fans of other Big Ten schools could see the Michigan sup-
porters they'd double up with laughter. In Iowa City, Hawkeye
supporters turn out 15,000 strong for every game and scream
like maniacs for 40 minutes. During Iowa's 79-72 victory over
the Wolverines in Iowa City last week, the Hawkeye boosters were
in fine form. In the first half, with Michigan leading by eight
points, they stood on their feet (God forbid Wolverine fans should
have to stand) for over three minutes straight and made enough
noise that it was almost impossible to hear the person sitting
next to you.
The Hawkeyes rattled off nine straight points.
The same scene regularly occurs in Bloomington, East Lan-
sing, Minneapolis; West Lafayette and Champaign. It rarely
ever happens in Ann Arbor.
Frieder never complains about the noise level or the lack of
attendance at Crisler. He doesn't want to make waves with the
regular Michigan basketball supporters, saying "they're more
intellectual and not as much of a party crowd."
He's just being too polite.
