minutes - but by the Spartans. Krentz
scored his 15th goal of the year after
taking a drop pass from Tom Anastos.
The highlights of the period for the
Wolverines came at 9:45 when they
recorded their first and only shot on
goal in the period.



"Our defense moved," said MSU
coach Ron Mason. "We made good
passes and kept the Wolverines away
from the puck."
KRENTZ added an unassisted goal
at 14:56 on a backhander which

EAST LANSING - Michigan State
goalie Bob Essensa should have taken
the night off. Maybe he could have gone
to a party of caught up on some sleep.
He certainly wasn't needed at Munn
Ice Arena last night as the Spartans
trounced Michigan, 11-2, before 6,697
festive fans in East Lansing.
STATE'S defense did all the work
that was necessary in front of Essensa.
The sophomore only needed to make 17
saves on the night as the Wolverines
seemed to be walking in their sleep

most of the game.
State's Craig Simpson scored a hat
trick and Dale Krentz and Mike Don-
nelly scored two goals a piece to pace
the route.
The Spartans turned out the lights
early. League leading scorer Simpson
notched a power play goal at 2:24 of the
opening period while Michigan defen-
seman Mike Neff was off for high
sticking. Donnelly scored just 22 seconds
later on a rebound of a Mitch Messier

peared to be screened on.
The epitomy of State's domination
came on a power play late in the period
when the Spartans held the puck in the
Wolverines' zone the entire two
minutes. They didn't score, but they
didn't really need to.
"I was embarrassed the way we
played," said Michigan coach Red
Berenson. "I didn't like our game at all,
right from the start, it was our worst ef-
fort of the year. They played a great
game, but they're not 11-2 better than
DONNELLY added his second goal
just 1:42 into the second period. Anastos
and Kevin Miller scored goals two
minutes apart late in the period, with
Miller's goal coming on the power play.
Michigan did manage three times as
many shots in the period however.
With a 7-0 lead after 40 minutes, the
Spartan's fans and band turned their
attention to a shapely rink attendant as
she made her way from one end to the
other. As if they didn't have enough to
hoot about.

THE WOLVERINES did play slightly
better in the third period, generating 13
shots, but they were still outscored, 4-2.
Junior Tom Stiles scored both Michigan
goals, tipping in a rebound off of a Brad
McCaughey shot at 1:06 and rifling a
slapshot past Essensa at 12:13. The
goals were little consolation for Stiles.
"We played like we were afraid of
them," he said. "We sat back and let
them take the play to us."
After a goal by State's Gord Flegel at
6:35, Simpson offset Stiles' two goals
with two of his own. He capped his three
goal performance with his 23rd goal of
the season at 17:53.
"Tomorrow we have to play like
they're not infallible," Stiles said about
tonight's game.
Infallible? The Spartan's were darn
close last night.


(ull court
Rock regains rhythm...
...it had to happen
I t was bound to happen, you just can't keep someone like Leslie
Rockymore down forever.
The Wolverine senior, who had fallen from the grace of the Michigan fans
and media over the past year due to struggles both on and off court, has ap-
parently gotten his game back on track in the past week.
Rockymore, who over the last 12 months had lost his reputation as a fierce
outside shooter, appeared to have regained some of his touch in Michigan's
last two games as he went four of five from the floor against Iowa last Satur-
day, and then hit a hot-handed eight of nine field goals to spark the
Wolverines to an 86-75 victory over Michigan State Thursday night. Even
more important than regaining his scoring touch, though, Rock had regained
some respect.
Rockymore has had to battle throughout most of his career at Michigan,
but amazingly, he has not let any of his struggles affect his attitude. He has
been able to adjust to new roles on the team and adapt to new respon-
As a sophomore, Rockymore started at guard and gained a reputation as a
dangerous perimeter shooter, but he still played in the shadows of crowd-
pleaser Eric Turner, before a knee injury ended his season.
Last year as a junior, the former Detroit Southwestern standout fought to
come back from his injury the previous year, but in the process, his shooting
prowess dulled. One third of the way through the Big Ten Schedule,
Rockymore was hitting just 33 percent of his shots from the floor, and he lost
his starting spot. He was relegated to the end of the Michigan bench.
This year the struggle for the Wolverine co-captain continued. With An-
toine Joubert and freshman sensation Gary Grant in the lineup, Rockymore
has seen minimal playing time at guard.
Instead, he's been spelling Rich Rellford
at small forward.
Off the court, Rockymore's life and
reputation were tarnished when he was
arrested before Christmas for shoplifting.
He received unfavorable press. Some did-
n't think he was pulling his weight as a
team leader.
Rumors circulated about problems bet-
ween him and Michigan head coach Bill
Frieder. It was said that he had become
alienated from his coach and his team-
* 'mates. After Rockymore didn't play at all
on a road trip to Illinois and Purdue two
Rockymore weeks ago, a writer for one of the Detroit
papers said he and Frieder had had a
falling out, and that te two didn't talk or get along anymore, something both
Rockymore and Frieder dispelled after Thursday's game.
"That's absolutely not true," claimed Frieder. "Rockymore and I are
very, very close.
"That's not fair," the fifth-year coach added, "because it gives everybody
in the City of Detroit the wrong impression. Rock and I love each other and
you wouldn't believe how close he and I were a couple of weeks ago when he
didn't play down at Purdue and Illinois."
"He told me to hang in there," said Rockymore of Frieder, "and that's what
I did. There's no animosity between coach Frieder and ."
There is also no animosity between him and his teammates. In fact, when
you think about it, Rockymore's been a pretty unselfish person. It's difficult
to be a spot player, filling in only when and where the team needs. But that's
what the Rock has done this year, and he's done it without complaining.
He's a team-oriented player and leader. When reporters confront him af-
ter a contest, he has to be asked specifically to talk about himself, otherwise,
he'd tell you about his team.
"You don't know how hard I've worked with him and how hard he worked
to come back," said Frieder.
He's done extra work, including going to practice early and staying late
just to work on getting his shot back. So with all he's been through, re-
discovering his touch is extra sweet.
"I've played over adversity many times," said Rockymore. "But this
time is was really a test. It was great."
And with all the adversity Leslie Rockymore has seen, he deserves some
respect when he gets hot, which should be more often now.

Amazing swimming was seen by all
as Michigan upset top-ranked Indiana
last night, 63-50, at Matt Mann Pool.
The upset gives Michigan a 1-0 con-
ference record, while Indiana drops to
1-1, and labels the Wolverines as one of
the top contenders in the Big Ten race.
Led by powerful swimming from the
start, Michigan's 400-yard medley
relay clinched the win putting the
Wolverines up 7-0. But not until Jan-
Erick Olsen, a freshman out of Kolb-
jornsvik, Norway, won the 200-yard
breaststroke in a pool record time of
2:03.90 was the win evident.
"THE MEET was full of good ex-
citing races" said Michigan head coach
Jon Urbanchek. "We had to win the fir-
st even to get momentum. I have no
feelings of disappointment."
Michigan continued on its roll with
wins by Benoit Clement in the 1000- and
500-yard freestyle events. The Wolveri-
nes grabbed top place in the 200-yard
butterfly on Lance Schroeder's diving
competition, to help cap off the win.
Kent Ferguson took the one-meter
event, edging out teammate Bruce
Kimball by a narrow margin. Kimball
dished out a first-place finish in the
three-meter, with some top scores,
edging out Indiana's top diver, while
Ferguson took fourth.
"WE HAVE been gearing our minds
toward this meet for a long time," said
Kimball. "They don't have the best
diving in the Big Ten but they are still
The Michigan team showed great
depth in the meet, scoring in every
event, and taking second most of the
time. Dave Kerska came in second in
the 50- and 100-yard freestyle events,
while Gary Antonick grabbed third in
the 200 yard freestyle. But it was the

s topple
200-yard breaststroke event at the end
of the meet that brought the crowd to its
feet. Jan-Erick Olsen and Marc Parrish
placed the Wolverines out of Indiana's

Badger Penny Hughes "had her
season's best meet" in winning the 500
freestyle and finishing two seconds
behind Wolverine victor Kay Lundy in
the 1000 freestyle, said Johansson.
Wisconsin's freshmen swimmers
raced for key points in the meet.
"Freshman Lisa Vick did a great job in
winning the 100 yard butterfly - I was
just hoping for second place," said
Johansson. "That really sparked ev-
eryone else up.
"AND ANOTHER freshman (Barb
Kafinger) just starting school this
week went out and beat Melinda Copp
(200 breaststroke)," he said.
Copp, second in that race, had won
the 200 backstroke in 2:11.30 just secon-
ds before. "Melinda had a gutsy swim,
back-to-back in the backstroke and the
breaststroke," said Lindsay.
Michigan freshman Christi Vedejs
won the 50 and 100 yard freestyle races
in 25.37 and 54.85 respectively, Jane
Esselstyn took the 100 backstroke, and
the Wolverines swept the diving events
to round out Michigan's winners. Leigh
Anne Grabovez won the one-meter
event and beat BadgerKaren Garenz
by just eight hundredths of a point in
three meter diving.
Yesterday's result, coupled with a
100-40 loss last Saturday at Ohio State,
drops the Wolverine's record to 1-4.
