-iyWOLVERINES TRIUMPH, 8-6
Icers gun down Ferris in shootout
By MIKE REDSTONE
Joe Lockwood and Paul Kobylarz
scored less than four minutes apart
early in the third period to put Michigan
ahead, 7-6, last night en route to an 8-6
victory over a tough Ferris State squad,
Brad Jones added an empty-netter
with just 12 seconds left to insure the
win as the Wolverines fended off a
furious last-minute rally by the
DESPITE keeping the puck in the
Ferris end throughout most of the con-
test, the Wolverines found themselves
battling back from varous deficits until
1:21 into the third period when a power
play goal by Frank Downing gave
Michigan its first lead of the night.
"It's tough when you get behind,"
said Michigan coach Red Berenson,
who made his official Ann Arbor
homecoming last night after 22 years
inthe NHL. "I was proud when the
team came back, and we came back on
more than one occasion."
The Bulldogs were quick to come
back, however, as Ray Zabel and team
captain Graham Craig scored just 1:12
apart. Craig's goal completed his hat
trick and put Ferris back into the lead
at the 4:56 mark, 6-5.
After the goal by Craig, however, the
Wolverines rallied and scored just 11
seconds later as Lockwood took a per-
fect right-wing pass from Mike Neff
and flipped the puck over Hughston's
KOBYLARZ then put the Wolverines
in the lead for good when he took a pass
from Dan Goff in front of the net and
drove the puck past Hughston, who was
being pulled away from the net.
The two teams traded goals nthe first
period as the Bulldogs built a 3-2 lead on
goals by Tim Wendt, Noel Caya, and
Wendt opened the scoring at the 2:24
mark on a breakaway just, as a
Michigan power play was ending.
Freshman Brad McCaughey knotted
the score three minutes later as he
drove the rebound off a Tom Stiles shot
CAYA, WHO had three goals and an
assist in the Bulldog's sweep at Bowling
Green.last weekend, took advantage of
a power-play situation to put Ferris
ahead, 2-1, as he drove a shot from the
blue line past Michigan netminder
The Wolverines came right back to
tie the score on a Brad Jones goal before
Craig's goal put the Bulldogs back in
the lead at intermission.
Craig gave his team its only two-goal
margin of the night at 1:24 of the second
stanza as he jammed the puck past
Chiamp as it lay in the crease following
a shot by Paul Lowden.
THE WOLVERINES played inspired
hockey from that point, howvever, as
consecutive goals by Todd Carlile,
Chris Seychel, and Downing gave the
Wolverines a 5-4 lead early in the third
After Ferris scored on its first :two
shots of the game sandwiched arouno
the McCaughey goal, it appeared as
though the Bulldogs would improve
their record to 3-0, but the Michigan of-
fense responded with its best play of the
"We scored some goals and
'developed more offense tonight," said
Berenson. "We shouldn't have to score
seven goals to win a game, but it was
that kind of a game. It wasn't classic

Former Michigan point guard Eric
Turner said he was surprised at being
cut Thursday by the Detroit Pistons,
but he still thinks he made the right
decision in going pro a year early.
"Yes, I was surprised," Turner ad-
mitted yesterday in a telephone inter-
view from his Flint home. "I felt like I
was doing really well at camp. But I've
got other options."
TURNER, the Piston's second-round
pick in the 1984 NBA draft, was put on
waivers by the team Thursday and will
become a free agent if no other NBA
club claims him by today.
As a junior last season, Turner helped
Michigan win the National Invitational
Tournament. He then decided to forego
his senior year of eligibility and give
the pros a try, a move that was
criticized by many. But it was a move
that Turner still feels was correct.
"I don't regret my decision," he said.
He also didn't want to disclose the ex-
planation the Pistons gave him for his

Turner awaits NBA bids,
not sorry he left school
An open letter to Eric Turner...
I'm not one to say I told you so but ...
What was the big rush to go pro? Things were finally
coming together for the team. You were there through the
bad times. The 7-20 campaign of 1981-82, the losses to EMU,
Louisiana Tech and Detroit,the starting line-up that featured
Joe James and Ike Person.
It took a while for Coach Frieder to build a team out of that
incoherent mess. A Roy Tarpley here, an Antoine Joubert
there, they didn't develop overnight. But, at the end of last
season, the Michigan basketball team was
a well-oiled machine.
The club that murdered Notre Dame in
the NIT finals would have been com-
petitive with any team in the nation (well,
maybe not Georgetown or North
Carolina). Roy and Butch were pounding
the boards, Antoine and Rich were doing
tie scoring, and you were the leader, the
And you gave it all up.
It wasn't just a potentially outstanding
:team you left behind, either. There was
;your senior year at school.
: This was your opportunity to work on the
parts of your game that were weak, you .
never did become the consistent player Tu
that Frieder was looking for. On top of that,
you could have earned your degree on time.
The Big Ten added the 45-second clock this year, Eric. You
finally would have had the run-and-gun offense that suited
your talents. We might've been talking All-America status.
But no! Despite the advice of your coach and family, you
decided that the pro game was ready for you. Thursday,
piston coach Chuck Daily decided that you weren't ready for
the pro game.
The Pistons needed a point guard, Eric. They wanted you
to succeed more than anyone else. Daly would not have cut
you unless he was convinced that there was no way you could
help the team. He kept Sidney Lowe, for God's sake.
Where does this leave you now? You could go the route of
Bullet Star Jeff Ruland and develop your talents in Europe
for a couple of years. Maybe you could try the Continental
Basketball League. Avoid Billings, though, it gets real cold in
Montana in January. Colder than Ann Arbor.
Speaking of Ann Arbor, it would be nice if you showed up to
watch your old team once in a while this year. Frieder signed
this kid from Canton whom people are raving about. A lot of
them say he looks like you. You should probably see for your-
And while you're in town, you could talk to Tarpley,
Rellford and Joubert. Just in case they were considering going
hardship for the big bucks and the glamour
of the pros, you could give them a dose of
reality. Those guys respect you, Eric,
they'll listen to you.
I don't know if you noticed with all that
was going on this week but the Warriors
cut Russell Cross last Tuesday. Remem-
ber him, Eric? Cross was an All-Big Ten
center two years ago. When he went har-
dship, Golden State made the Purdue star
the sixth choice overall in the country. He
lasted a year.
You weren't All-Big Ten, Eric. You
weren't a first-round choice, either.
Honestly, everybody here feels bad for
rrner you. We wanted you to stay but, once you
made your decision, we were behind you 100
You've got too much talent to let this get to you. Whatever
you decide to do, take the time to develop your skills. Be
coachable. You're not that far from where you need to be.
Take care of yourself, Eric. We'll see you around.

between us," he claimed. "But that was
PISTON COACH Chuck Daly was on
his way to Cincinnati yesterday for an
exhibition game with the Boston Celtics
and was unavailable for comment.
Turner and his agent, Cleveland at-
torney Pete Kirsanow, didn't know
what the 6-3 pointman's next move
"At the present time we're exploring
other options," said Kirsanow. "He's on
the waiver wire. There might be an
NBA team that is looking for a point
"I'M GOING to wait a few days and
rest before I do anything," said Turner.
"There's a possibility that another NBA
team would be interested and pick me
up. I would like to get with a team that
likes to run."
Neither would discuss other playing
possibilities, such as the Continental
Basketball Association or Europe.
"I would consider other options,"
said Turner, "but I don't want to talk
about them now."
Kirsanow added, "He's going to play
basketball somewhere this year,
hopefully it will be in the NBA."

rAfter being on the road for eight
weeks, the women's golf team will
finally bring its travelling act home
*hen it hosts the Lady Wolverine In-
4fational today and tomorrow at the Mi-
chigan Golf Course. To head coach Sue
beClair and the rest of the team,
playing in Ann Arbor will be a welcome
"All the girls are tired and the
pressures of school are starting to build
u} now, so it's good to be home," said
'BECAUSE of that weariness, LeClair
*plans on playing two teams this week,
thus giving several freshmen a chance
to experience golf at the tournament
level for the first time. This will also
give several regulars a rest.
One regular who won't be rested is
Valerie Madill. The sophomore from
Flint is one of the bright spots of this
"She just has a beautiful golf swing,
alid she's very intense and hard
working. She's easy to coach," said
That's not to say that she doesn't like
the travel though. "I like meeting all
the girls on the other teams," said
Madill. "Our team is really fun to
travel with, so I really enjoy that."
Madill went out this season with the
goal of lowering her scoring average,
said. "Next year I'd really like to get
down around 80 if possible."
LeClair echoed this sentiment and
expressed her confidence in Madill's
ability. "Next year I don't see any
reason why she can't be down around
80," the coach said. "She has great
dedication and determination, and she
never gives up on herself."
MADILL is just as positive about her
coach. "She's kind of relaxed and she's
very easy to golf for because of that.
We're never under great pressure to
perform, and that helps a lot."
Both Madill and LeClair agree that
Michigan's course is one of the tougher
courses they face all year.
"It's definitely a harder course, so
my scores will be higher here," said
LECLAIR expects higher team
scores as well. "We know it's harder
here, so I'd like to see around a 325
