near the end of the first half; the
Wolverines used the height of Roy Tar-
pley and Tim McCormick to cruise to
their easiest win since the opener
against Northwestern. Tarpley finished
with 22 points and eight rebounds, Mc-
Cormick 18 and four.
It was a big victory too because Ohio
State lost to Illinois, moving the
Wolverines in sole possession of fourth
place in the Big Ten and closer to NCAA
tournament berth. Michigan stands at 8-
7 and 16-9 overall. Ohio State is a half a
game back at 8-8.

WHILE THE Wolverines did pretty
much as they pleased on offense, their
defense shut down the Badger offense,
especially guard Rick Olson. Olson,
who had 39 points at Madison, was held
to just 10 points on 4-9 from the floor.
Leading Big Ten scorer Cory Blackwell
tallied 28, but many of them came after
the contest was a foregone conclusion.
Wisconsin snuck up on the Wolverines
at the end of the half 37-33, but the Tar-
pley scoring machine made the
Badgers look like a suburban high
school team in the second half. Tarpley
hit on four straight jumpers a few
minutes into the period to give the
Wolverines a 56-45 advantage, leaving
the farm-boy types in his wake.

"Tarpley has really developed since
we've seen him last," Yoder observed.
"He was just too much for us."
THOUGH TARPLEY credited
Wisconsin's defense, there was no stop-
ping him. His confidence grows with
every game. "I feel like I'm not going to
miss," he said.
The Crisler crowd of 13,109 had more
than Tarpley to entertain them,
however. Numerous fast break dunks
by Tarpley and Rich Rellford from Eric
Turner feeds picked up the generally
lethargic patrons. "That (the dunks)
reminds me of high school," Turner
Rellford was nullified on a potential
jam midway in the second half by
Blackwell. The Badger star payed a
price for going up with the high-flying
"IT WAS A GOOD block," Rellford
admitted. "I told him after it was a
good block. But his hand was hurting.
He couldn't even shake my hand after."
Rellford could afford to be gracious to
his opponents. He and his teammates
won't see any more games this easy.
Coach Bill Frieder even got a rare op-
portunity to clear his bench, getting
everyone into the blowout except Jon
Antonides, who is still injured, and Paul
Jokisch. Jokisch, who will play football
next year for the Wolverines, declined
assistant coach Steve Fisher's offer to
enter the contest. "Look, there was 40
seconds left in the game. I don't want to
go in with 40 seconds left in the game,"
As frustrated as Jokisch may be, it
probably couldn't be as bad as Wiscon-
sin's Yoder. The Wolverine slaughter
left him to go cry in his beer.
"You guys enjoy the evening," he
told reporters. "I'm gonna go have a
