'Hulk' is the key

By RANDY BERGER
Although it's overused, the "In-
credible Hulk" is the perfect nickname
for Purdue center Jim Rowinski.
He's a hulk because at 6-8 he can out-
muscle taller centers with his powerful
240-pound frame. He's incredible
because after sitting on the bench last
year playing behind Russell Cross (who
left the Boilermakers for the NBA),
Rowinski is now among the league's
dominant players.
ROWINSKI'S METAMORPHIS
is a major reason why Purdue, picked
-tofinish in the Big Ten's second
division, is sitting in a first place' tie
with Illinois, going into tonight's game
against Michigan.
"He's.a real success story," said
Michigan coach Bill Frieder of the Pur-
due center. "He worked hard on
building his strength and now he's a
complete ballplayer."
Rowinski's story began in Syosset,
N.Y. when he was cut from his high school
basketball team during his junior year.

Over the summer, though, Rowinski
put five inches onto his 5-10 frame.
His development into a big time
college player, however, was just
beginning. Rowinski walked on at Pur-
due his freshman year when Lee Rose
was still coaching the team. In the 1981-
82 season Rowinski suffered a leg in-
jury and began a diligent' weight
program that shaped his already large
frame into a body builder's physique.
NOW IN HIS fifth year, Rowinski has
stepped into the starting center position
and made everyone in West Lafayette
forget about Cross.
"He started coming on at the end of
last season but I don't think anybody
would have thought he would make the
impact he has this year," said
Michigan's assistant coach Bud Van
DeWege, Jr. "He's been the key to their
success."
So far this season Rowinski has
definitely made an impact, averaging
15.9 points and 7.2 rebounds a game,

both tops among Boilermakers. He has
already been named Big Ten Player of
the Week after his consecutive career-
high scoring performances of 20 points
against Wisconsin on January 5 and 25
points against on January 7.
"JIM HAS ALREADY had a heck of a
year," said Purdue head coach Gene
Keady. "He has been one of our
steadiest performers all season. The
challenge now is for him to continue his
excellent play as we continue in the
conference schedule."
The challenge for the Wolverines is to
stop Rowinski and the 11-4 (4-1 in the
Big Ten) Boilermakers.
"To stop him you can't allow him to
outmove you for the physical position
inside," added Van DeWege. "You
have to quick him and work on the fun-
damentals."
FRIEDER PLANS to start Butch
Wade on Rowinski and then use his,
bench to try and wear him down.

Michigan, however, can't divert all
its attention to Rowinski since the
Boilermakers have a very experienced
team, which, according to Frieder, is
the main reason why Purdue is atop the
Big Ten.
"They proved right off the block that
they're a good team. (Purdue started
the season with a 7-0 record which in-
cluded a win over Fresno St. at Fresno
and was ranked as high as seventh in
both national polls.) They've got
veterans back from last year and the
improvement of Rowinski has made up
for the loss of Cross."
Forward Jim. Bullock and guards
Steve Reid and Ricky Hall provided ad-
ded scoring punch, each averaging over
11 points a game.
The Purdue game opens the toughest
road trip of the year for the Wolverines.
After tonight they travel to Cham-
paigne to play Illinois on Saturday and
then to Michigan State on February 2.

Horn regains orm
Gymnast returns from injury

By DAN COVEN
An eerie quiet filled Crisler Arena as a Michigan
gymnast neared the end of his floor exercise routine.
Finishing off his performance with a series of
gravity-defying handsprings and double-backflips
followed by a flawless landing, he received a rousing
ovation from the crowd and.a first-place score of 9.50.
For senior captain Merrick Horn, it is a return to a
level of excellence he expects to achieve in every per-
formance.
FOR THE 5-10, 162-pound all-arounder, 1984 is the
culmination of eight years of sweat and toil - eight
years in which he has overcome obstacles that might
have stopped others.
Horn discovered gymnastics at the age of 14 at a
local club. He performed there because his high
school, University High in Hollywood, Fla., had no
gymnastics team. Upon graduation, though, Horn
received a gymnastics scholarship to the University
of Colorado.
But a year later Horn's troubles continued. Due to
financial mismanagement by Colorado athletic
director Chuck Fairbanks, the university had to drop
several sports, including gymnastics. Luckily for
1 Horn, former Michigan gymnastics coach Newt
Loken invited him to try out. Horn enrolled here in
the fall of 1980.
"I was really excited to work under Newt;" said
Horn. "I'd heard so much about him."

UNDER LOKEN'S guidance Horn improved his
all-around score from 52.0 to 54.5 by his junior year,
and just missed qualifying for the NCAA champion-
ships after finishing fourth in the Mideast Regional.
But then another dose of bad luck hit Horn. A freak
stomach injury, which required surgery, forced him
to sit out much of last season. But by January, Horn
began nine months of rigorous seven-hour-a-day
workouts to get back in shape. By September, Horn
was ready for competition again.
"So far this season's been frustrating," Horn
remarked. "I'm not scoring as well as I did my junior
year. I want to prove that I'm just as good as before."
IN LAST Friday's dual meet against Big Ten power
Minnesota, Horn took two firsts and finished third
overall with a score of 54.55.
Said head coach Bob Darden, "Merrick is on his
way to an all-around score of 56, especially with
Gavin (Meyerowitz) breathing down his neck."
A score of 56 could qualify Horn for the U.S.A.
Championships in May. "If I hit all my events, the
scores will be there." For Horn to qualify for the
NCAAs, he must post one of the top five all-around
scores inthe Mideast Region, or receive an at-large
bid for a particular event.
Although his socres are not quite high enough to
earn him a berth right now, teammate Meyerowitz
thinks Horn's relentless nature gives him an edge.
"Nobody here doubts Merrick will make it. You
just can't keep a guy like that down."
