Quincy moves to UTEP

. . .

... will anyone notice?
j ROM ALL THE run-around I got in the past six weeks you would think
.R Quincy Turner's decision to transfer to Texas-El Paso was classified
"top-secret" by the government.
Nearly a dozen calls to his home in Benton Harbor got pretty much the
same response from Turner's parents: "No, Quincy isn't home now. No, he
hasn't made a decision. Why don't you try later." All the while Turner was
going to class at his new school. Boy they sure fooled me. I guess I shouldn't
feel bad, though. Even Turner's ex-roommate at West Quad didn't have a
clue to his whereabouts.
Turner's clandestine departure was appropriate, though. Even when he
was here you never noticed. I remember watching practice one day nefore
the season began when coach Bill Frieder matched up all the guards for a
one-on-one drill. "Who am I missing?" he shouted. "Quincy" someone
replied. I made a mental note. Quincy --The forgotten man.
So its off to El Paso and the 10th-ranked team in the natio for the forgot-
ten Wolverine. I'm sure it's the right move for him but somehow I don't think
he will play much there, either. He is going to sit out a year and a half. The
current starters will be gone by then, true, but new recruits will take their
place. That's what happened to Quincy at Michigan, if you will recall.
Turner was the first recruit to sign last year. A couple of backcourters by
the names of Antoine Joubert and Garde Thompson followed the lefthander
to the Maize and Blue. Q.T. soon found himself the sixth guard with little
hope of moving into the top three until his junior year. For a player who
averaged 25.2 points and made every all-state squad his senior year in high
school, that wasn't fast enough.
Less than a month after the start of the season, the "other" Turner was
gone. He quickly became a distant memory, not even to be found in the
weekly basketball statistics released by the Michigan sports information
department.
In a discrete maneuver that would make George Orwell proud, the "other"
Turner disappeared, becoming just plain "other" in the stat sheet. Good old
"other" has been a model of consistency ever since - five games played, 2-6
from the field, -8 from the line, two assists, 19 minutes played and a down-
to-earth 2.2 scoring average. It's like Turner never played here. Ain't it
great to be living in 1984?
Well anyway, Turner sounds happy with his decision and that is the most
important thing. From what I've been told he didn't get along with any of his
Michigan teammates very well. That compounded his misery, I'm sure.
I know it sounds callous, but I'm glad he is gone because I hated having
to put "E. Turner" and "Q. Turner" in the boxscore. We forgot one night and
would have again, no doubt.
Best quote about Quincy's quitting: "I wonder if the Quincy player diary
(see Tipoff '83-84) will become a collector's item?"
The Rock becomes the Pebble
Now that Quincy has found a home, I wonder if he would help Leslie
Rockymore find his shooting touch. Since Turner left the team Rockymore
has hit on a measly 33 percent of his rocks and no more. He was as solid as
Gilbralter whenQuincy was around, knocking down 53 percent. The Detroit
,prep star's superslump has left both Rockymore and Frieder shrugging
their shoulders in frustration.
"I don't know what it is," Frieder said in response to what is becoming a
familiar question. "I'm concerned about Rockymore. We just can't afford to
,miss that many shots. You know, he's shot 15 percent in the last three games.
But what am I supposed to do? I try him off the bench against Ohio State and
he shoots 6-10 and the press rips me for not starting him."
It has been suggested that a mysterious
pain in Rockymore's shooting hand is the
cause of his misery. It sounds plausible.
Rockymore has had "something loose" in
the hand since the Rutgers game (Dec. 21).
Doctors are supposed to take a closer look
after the season. But Frieder rejected the
Inotion that the hand is the cause of the
Rock's shooting impotence. Whatever is
wrong better correct itself soon or the
Wolverines will find themselves one ex-
perienced guard short in the important
stretch run of the Big Ten race.
For Rockymore, though, it is the slump
- not the hand - that is painful. So pain-
ful, in fact, the already reticent junior Rockyinore
would rather not think about it.
"Do we have to talk about it now?" he asked the inquiring reporter. No,
Rock. That's okay. We'll talk about it later. Maybe if we wait we can talk
about how you regained your touch in time to help your team to the NCAA
tournament. That's a better story, anyway.

game.
"I thought f0elekoudas played well,
for you guys that don't like him," he
said. "I thought he did a hell of a job. He
took a charge at a crucial time, he
made a free throw or two there. We
needed defense when we put him in
there and he did a great job."
Off the inbounds pass after the free
throws, Batch Wade fouled Mon-
tgomery, the Illini's only poor foul
shooter, who missed the front end of
a one-and-one. Illinois' Bruce Douglas
got the rebound but was rejected by
Roy Tarpley (13 points, five blocks,
seven boards). Tarpley was fouled, hit
two from the line and the game was all
even.
ILLINOIS then held the ball for over
a minute but at the 1:41 mark Efrem
Winters drove to the goal and was
fouled by Wade. The sophomore, who
finished with 16 points to lead Illinois,
completed the one-and-one despite
screams from the normally placid
Crisler crowd, perhaps stirred by a sign
which said "Please Make Noise."
Twenty-one seconds later, it was;
again even on a Turner jumper from
Pelekoudas. The Illini gained possession
with 1:20 remaining and, while trying to

set up one last shot, turned it over on a
five-second call at the 46-second mark.
Frieder called time out to set up
Michigan's last effort. Turner came
through once again.
"I wanted to be the one to shoot it if it
came down to that," said Turner, who
is starting to live up to his acclaim. "I
didn't really know (it was going in)
when it left. I didn't know until it went
in."
ILLINOIS had time for a last ditch ef-
fort, but a heave from midcourt by
freshman Tony Wysinger bounced off
the front rim and Michigan had its first
come-from-behind win of the season.
"I thought that damn little kid's shot
was going in at the end," said a relieved
Frieder. "Didn't you?"
Illini coach Lou Henson, whose team
had its eight-game winning streak
snapped, was not unhappy with
Illini's effort.
"We felt that we played a pretty good
game," said the Oklahoma native. "But
we don't have much depth. Down the
stretch, when we needed the five that
we usually play with, two (Montgomery
and Quinn Richardson) were on the
bench."

Antoine Joubert had his strongest
game in some time scoring 11 on five of
nine from the floor. Leslie Rockymore
did not play for the first time this year.
"I just started Joubert," explained

Frieder. "You have to do whatever tie
game dictates. Rockymore has got ;to
battle back.'
Michigan didn't need Rockymore last
night. E.T. was a one-man show.

Hamifton,
Johnson win
Olrnympicgold
SARAJEVO, Yugoslavia (UPI) -
Scott Hamilton and Bill Johnson gave
the United States two gold medals at
the Winter Olympics yesterday,' one
doing what everyone said he would, and
the other achieving what he alone
thought he could.I
Hamilton, a three-time world cham-
pion who is unbeaten since 1980, was a
picture of precision last night when he
swept his way to the figure skating
championship before a cheering, cap-
tivated crowd at the Zetra Arena. AVter
receiving his medal, he earned another
ovation by skating around the rink
waving an American flag.
The big story of'the day, and of the
Olympics themselves, came hours
earlier when Johnson, speedi g down
the mountainside just as quick as his
mouth would carry him, skied himself
into history and created an honest to
goodness legend. The bold, brash
American first befuddled conservative
Europeans with his loud-mouth
pronouncements of coming glory, and
then he confounded the experts by his
deeds of daring.
