Warriors wasted,

83-70

(Continued from Page 1)
who scored 11 points.
Good thing for the Wolverines that
they made' the late run because
Marquette came fighting back, out-
scoring Michigan 9-2 at the start of the
second stanza. The Warriors pulled
within two but could never get over the
hump. Michigan withstood the Warrior
onslaught and then methodically sent
the Warrior's NIT championship hoses
back to Milwaukee.
"Every time they made a run, we
responded," said Frieder. "I thought
we played just an outstanding game."
The key may have been the
Wolverines turnaround at the free-
throw stripe. They hit just 5-of-11 in the
first half but 20-of-27 in the second. Why
the big difference?
"I TOOK it (foul shooting) at half-
time," Frieder joked. "My assistant
was in control in the first half so then I
took over."
Minutes later, Frieder was informed
that Michigan would ot Xavier on Thur-
sday if it beat Nebraska. At the time the
game was deadlocked with five minutes
left. "Now I gotta go coach Xavier,"
Frieder moaned.
Frieder must have done the job
because the Musketeers pulled out a

one-point win and gave Michigan the
home-court edge so crucial in tour-
nament play.
"THAT'S what we need," said a
jubilant Rellford when informed of the
Xavier-Nebraska outcome. "We'll ber
there."
"I really feel good about playing at
home," added Joubert. "Anytime we
can play here it's a big advantage ...
we play with a lot of confidence here. I
think we can beat North Carolina
here."
While Joubert may be a bit over-
exuberant, the Wolverines are
definitely playing good ball now. Like
last Thursday's 94-70 shellacking over
Wichita State, they ran whenever the
opportunity presented itself. Though
Warrior -coach Rick Majerus did not
make the same mistake the Shockers
did by pressing the Wolverines, his
team was not afraid to go end-to-end
with Michigan.
"I think they wanted to push it uF.
when they could," said Erick Turner,
who was relatively quiet with 11 points
but committed only two turnovers.
"But we like to run too, I enjoy running
any chance we get."
You can bet the Wolverines will try to

continue to move it up against Xavier
this Thursday. And if they play that
game like the last two, the Wolverines

may run right ito a spot in
final four at New York next
and Wednesday.

Slick ball control was the key here for Michigan guard Dan Pelekoudas as he
leaves a Marquette opponent on the ground. Pelekoudas co-led the team in

'M'scalped, 10=9

Special to the Daily
EDINBURGH, Texas - A wild time
was had by the Michigan baseball team
yesterday in the third game of its
spring trip to Texas - especially by the
pitchers.
Three Wolverine hurlers walked and
hit eight Bradley batters in the fourth
and fifth innings. Each of them scored
and the Braves from Peoria, Ill. had
urned a 6-0 Michigan lead into a 10-6
efecit, then hung on to post a 10-9 vic-
tory.
THE WOLVERINES came back with
two in the bottom of the sixth when with
two out, Mike Watters doubled down the
left field line and first baseman Ken
Hayward drove his second home run of
the season over the right field fence.
Then sophomore Casey Close hit
another four-bagger leading off the
seventh, but Bradley was able to get the

rest of the side out in order to preserve
the win.
- Michigan got off to a big lead in the
second as Rich Bair and Close singled
to lead off the inning. Then Matt Shuta
singled following a walk to Kurt Zim-
merman to score Bair from third.
Freshman Rob Huffman beat out an in-
field hit, scoring Close and Barry Larkin
followed with a single to right on which
Zimmerman scored but Shuta was
thrown out at the plate.-.
After Watters walked, Hayward
drove in two more runs with a bases-
loaded single. The Wolverine: added
another run in the third to mount the 6-0
advantage.
The game marked the opening of the
Jody Ramsey Tournament hosted, by
Pan American University. Michigan,
now 1-2 on the season, battles Bradley
again today at 2:00p.m.

Basketball season will not end with
the NIT for the Michigan Wolverines.
Coach Bill Frieder will take his team on
a 17-day, seven-game trip to Europe
this spring.
The Wolverines will tour four nations
and play against three national teams.
"THIS HAS been in planning for some
time now," said Frieder. "We made a
trip 10 years ago and we just thought
this was a good time to try again with
the players that we have. I'd like to go
to Europe every six years or so."
Michigan will leave Ann Arbor May 1
and arrive in Luxemburg one day later.
From there the Wolverines will travel
to the Netherlands, where they will face
the national team in four games May 5-
8. Next on the itinerary is a stop in West
Germany for a May 9 match against
that nation's team.
Michigan's final destination is
Athens, Greece, for two games against
the Greek national team.

THE WOLVERINES will return to
Ann Arbor May 17.
Frieder said the trip would be at the
expense of the host nations.
"We're the guests of those respective
countries," he said. "They're going to
pick up the brunt of it (the cost). We've
got to get our airfare."
THE TOUR, plans for which are not
yet finalized, is being arranged through
the Amateur Basketball Association of
the U.S. Big Ten co-champions Purdue
and Illinois took similar European
trips last summer.
Frieder said the trip will give his
team the chance to play extra games
against good competition. He added
that the national teams of West Ger-
many and the Netherlands probably
will play at the Los Angeles Olym-
pics.
All of Michigan's returning players,
and possibly graduating senior Dan
Pelekoudas, will make the trip.

NIT ROUNDUP:
Irish down BC, 6 6-52

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (AP) - Notre
Dame reeled off the last 12 points after
Tom Sluby and Tim Kempton launched
a second-half comeback that carried
the Fighting Irish to a 66-52 basketball
victory over Boston College in the
second round of the National Invitation
Tournament last night.
Notre Dame, 19-11, advances to a
quarter-final game against Pittsburgh
Friday night.
BOSTON College finished its season
at 18-12.
Boston College trailed 28-24 at half-
time before jumping ahead 39-32. But
Kempton and Sluby, who each finished
with 20 points, scored six apiece in a 14-
4 spurt that put Notre Dame in front 46-
43 with 8:16 left in the game.
With 3:05 to go, Roger McCready hit
two free throws to give the Eagles their
last lead, 51-50.
AN 18-FOOT jumper by Ken Barlow
put the Fighting Irish back on top, and
Kempton followed with two free throws,
building the lead to 54-51.
Jay Murphy, who led Boston College
with 15 points, sank one of the two free
throws with 1:51 remaining to cut the
gap to 54-52. But the Eagles couldn't
score again. After Sluby's jumper from
the foul line put Notre Dame ahead 56-
52 with 1:31 left, Boston College
couldn't connect on hurried shots and
was forced to foul.
Notre Dame's last 10 points came on
free throws, five of them by Scott
Hicks.
Xarier 58, Nebraska 57
CINCINNATI (AP) - Vic Fleming

scored 20 points and Jeff Jenkins added

Xavier outscored Nebraska 12-1 in
the last three minutes of the first half to
take a 30-25 lead at halftime. Fleming
had 10 points in that stretch.
In the second half, the Musketeers
failed to score for the first 4:22, and
Nebraska took the lead at 32-31 on a
layup by Hoppen. After the lead had
changed hands six times, Xavier finally
went ahead for good at 50-49 with 4:30
left on Fleming's 18th point.
Dexter Bailey hit an alley-oop dunk to
up the margin to 52-49 and Nebraska
called a timeout with 3:08 left. Xavier
froze the ball for 1:30, and Hoppen
fouled Richard Harris, who missed both
free throws. Eric Williams scored to
pull the Cornhuskers within 52-51.
Tennessee 68
Ten n-Chattanooga 66
KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Willie

Tennessee, which finished sixth in the
Southeastern Conference, bettered its
record to 21-13. Chattanooga, runnerup

in the half. The Volunteers fought back,
but were still down 36-31 at the half.
