(Continued from Page 1)
on the shooting of Antoine Joubert. The
freshman from Detroit scored a career
high 18 points.
XAVIER was able to narrow the lead
by halftime but then in the second half

Michigan went into a zone defense
enabling them to spread the gap.
"They were quicker than us except for
maybe Eric Turner so it gave us
problems in who McCormick oraWade

could cover," explained Frieder.
The zone defense and some Roy Tar-
pley shots inside spruced Michigan's
lead up to 54-43 with just over eight
minutes left in the game and you could
hear the crowd humming a few verses
of New York, New York.
BUT XAVIER rudely stopped
Michigan's early celebration,
especially its star player, Jeff Jenkins.
The Musketeer center, who finished
with a game high 21 points, pulled his
team back within two, 58-56 with just
two minutes left.
After McCormick nailed a free throw
and then Xavier's Victor Fleming
threw up a prayer, it looked as
if the Wolverines had its third straight
NIT win in the bag. But, then shades of
Northwestern flashed through
everyone's mind when Tarpley missed
an easy layup that could have finally

stabbed the Musketeers.
Dexter Bailey scored an inside
bucket for Xavier at 1:04 to make the
score 59-58.. After both teams traded
baskets, Joubert sank two free throws
putting Michigan ahead 63-60 with just
:21 seconds left. Jenkins hit a jumper to
make the score 63-62 but only after
Xavier had run the clock down to :02
seconds.
Now, the game was finally over and
as Xavier coach Bob Staak called his
team, "the Rats" were put in the gutter
while Michigan goes to the glitter.
The Wolverines will now play the
winner of the Virginia Tech and Ten-
nessee game on Monday in Madison
Square Garden, one step away from the
finals.
Certainly, that is a quantum leap for
a team that lost 20 games just two
seasons ago.
