"We designed two or three things to
go to Roy early in the second-half so he
could get that first basket," said
Frieder. "Once he got it I think he
relaxed."
That first basket came two minutes
into the second half, pulling the
Wolverines to within two, 33-31. But
more importantly, it changed the tem-
po of the game dramatically into the
Wolverines' favor.
"I FELT A little down (at halftime)"
said Tarpley. "But I just kept my head
together and came out for the second
half even more determined."
After Tarpley's first bucket, Detroit
pulled further ahead on a Greg Wendt
layup, 35-31. Rich Rellford cut the lead

awns Detroit

to three by making the second of two
free throws and then Gary Grant hit
from the corner to make it 35-34. Then
the Wolverines worked the ball inside to
Tarpley for a slam the next time down
the court and took the lead for good.
Michigan then rattled off 24 points to
the Titan's 10, highlighted by six
buckets from Tarpley, including and
alley-oop from Garde Thompson, and a
jumper from the right corner by senior
guard Leslie Rockymore. In the contest
Rockvmore seemedjto get back some
of the scoring touch he lost last season,
pumping in 16 points.
Wade even got into the act during the
Wolverine's run making up for his
missed dunk in the first half by suc-
cessfully executing a one-handed jam
after stealing the ball at half court.

"It's a little easier one-handed," said
Wade after the contest. In the game, the
6-8 junior forward pumped in six-of-
eight field goals and added three-of-
four free throws for a 15-point effort.
Antoine Joubert also hit double
figures for the Wolverines, hitting five
field goals and one free throw for 11
points.
Wendt, a 6-6 forward who transfered
to Detroit last year from Duke, led the
Titans with 19 points. Detroit also got 13
from forward Brian Humes.

Paul Jokisch said yesterday he would
join the basketball team after the foot-
ball team plays in the Holiday Bowl on
Dec. 21. Jokisch said he would be ready
for the Tennessee game on Dec. 29.
Coach Bill Frieder added that Jokisch
probably wouldn't be ready for game
action until the Big Ten opener against
Indiana on Jan. 2.
Sicko losing

Bo accepts

By MIKE MCGRAW
It's official now. The Wolverines will be jetting out to San
Diego to play in the Holiday Bowl on December 21 against
undefeated and number-one ranked Brigham Young. This
will be the first time ever that Michigan will be matched
against the nation's top team in a bowl game.
Ironically, this opportunity comes following the
Wolverines' worst season since 1967. But last Saturday,
when the bowl bids could finally be extended, the Holiday
people invited Michigan and Bo Schembechler accepted.
"THE OPPORTUNITY to go to the Holiday Bowl, we
didn't anticipate because of our five losses," said Schem-
bechler at Saturday's press conference. "We didn't expect
to go to a bowl game this prestigious because of our
record."
The chance for Michigan to get in on the Holiday action
came as a result of the usual unimportance of the Holiday
Bowl. It does not have a contract with one of the major
networks so it doesn't have near the money to offer its
participants as do the New Year's Day contests.
But the bowl has an agreement to invite the champion of
the Western Athletic Conference, which happened to be a
this-time undefeated BYU for the ninth-straight year.
When the other top twenty teams opted to go elsewhere.

loliday bid
the Holiday Bowl was forced to go with the Blue.
"IN PLAYING Brigham Young, who is ranked number
one and is the most prolific passing team in the country, I
think we're well-schooled against that kind of a team,"
said Schembechler, who is headed for bowl play for the
10th-straight season.
"When you play Miami, Illinois, Iowa or Purdue, you're
playing nationally-ranked passing teams. Our record
against them is 2-2 and we played all those teams very
close."~
Brigham Young's powerful passing attack is led by
Robbie Bosco, another in the series of star Cougar quar-
terbacks. Bosco, a 6-3 junior from Roseville, Calif., has
.tossed for over 3500 yards this season and against Air For-
ce, racked up 484 yards in the air.
BUT SCHEMBECHLER doesn't feel that stopping the
BYU offense is outside the realm of capabilities of the
Wolverine defense.
"We're not going out there with the idea that we are
cannon fodder for Brigham Young," said the 15-year
coach. "We are going out there to win. We think its a great
challenge."
There was some question as to whether Michigan would
elect to go to a bowl after finishing 6-5 this season. But a
bout with the team on top is tough to say no to.
"First of all, in our situation it's nice to go to a good
locale like San Diego. It's nice to play in a big stadium and
to play a nationally well-known team," Schembechler
said. "These bowl games offer an educational opportunity
for our players and we'd like to go every year. We're
pleased as the dickens that the Holiday Bowl invited us."
Schembechler indicated that the team would start prac-
ticing again around December 10 and would probably
leave for California on the 18th.

By CHRIS GERBASI
"What if...?"
There are many times during a
hockey season when a coach will pon-
der what might have happened if the
puck had taken a different bounce here
or there.
THE PAST weekend was one of those
times for Michigan coach Red Beren-
son. He watched his team drop two
homes games to Lake Superior State, a
1-0 heartbreaker and a 6-3 loss in which
the Wolverines led 3-0 in the second
period.
What if Michigan had won both
games? Well, they would have moved
into solid contention for a top-four finish
in the CCHA and climbed to a .500
overall record.
Instead, the Wolverines find them-
selves in a four-way tie for fifth.
Michigan is 5-7 in the CCHA and 5-9
overall.
ALTHOUGH THE season is not yet
half over, this weekend's games were
very important. Lake Superior is now
tied with Michigan State for first place
with 18 points and both teams are put-
ting some distance between themselves
and Michigan.
Friday night's game was a rare
defensive struggle for the Wolverines,
featuring a goaltending duel between
Michigan's Mark Ciamp and State's
Randy Exelby.
The only goal of the game was scored
on a power play at the 15:15 mark of the
first period by the Lakers' Allan Butler.
"OUR DEFENSE played fairly

well," said Berenson. "But we still
didn't play as well as we have to to beat
a team like this. Lake Superior is an
improved team. They're playing with a
lot of confidence and making a lot of
opportunities."
While the defense may have im-
proved, the offense was notably
missing. In an effort to shake things up
for Saturday's game, Berenson ben-
ched Chris Seychel, the team's second-
leading scorer, as well as regulars Paul
Kobylarz and Dan Goff. Freshman
Paul Rossi and junior Time O'Connor
saw ice time as a result.
"We weren't pleased with our work
habits (Friday night)," Berenson said.
"We think Seychel is one of our better
players but he's got to be out there
giving 110 percent."
THROUGH TWO periods on Satur-
day, all of Michigan's players looked
like they were giving 110 percent. The
Wolverines held a 3-0 lead on goals by
John Bjorkman, Frank Downing and
freshman Sean Baker. The goal by
Baker was his first as a collegiate.
Craig Hewson scored for the Lakers
at 10:59 of the second period to cut the
margin to 3-1 going into the final period.

Then the roof caved in on Michigan
goalie Tim Makris. The lead slowly
melted away and when Jim Roque
scored at 10:51, Lake Superior was in
front, 4-3.
Two of the Lakers' five goals in the
period were power play goals. Beren-
son was not pleased with the officiating.
"The penalties hurt us," he said.
"And they were unnecessary penalties,
I thought. The ref didn't let the teams
play. In a close hockey game, you've
got to let the teams play hockey."
Michigan will play it again this
weekend, hosting Ohio State for a two-
game series.
BLUE LINES: Defenseman Todd
Carlile sat out Saturday's game as a
precautionary measure after taking an
elbow to the head in Friday's contest.
Carlile did not have a concussion and
should be back in action this weekend...
Center Brad Jones, on the other hand,
may be out for a few weeks. The
sophomore injured his right leg Satur-
day night when he got pinned along the
boards... Berenson was again pleased
with the performance of Makris and he
will probably take another turn this
weekend.
