UIC Flames melt
By MIKE REDSTONE
Michigan managed to keep the top
scoring line in the country scoreless
last night but could not hold the rest of a
tough Illinois-Chicago team at bay. The
-Flames extended their road win streak
to four and handed the Wolverines their
I fifth straight loss last night at Yost
The Wolverines' defense looked sharp
despite the absence of freshman Jeff
Norton, who is suffering with a bruised
knee. Senior Mike Neff solidified the
defensive unit, however, with one of his
strongest games of the year.
THE STRENGTH of the Michigan
defense kept the Flames top scoring
line of Ray Staszak, Colin Chin, and
Mike Rucinski (74 goals, 164 points) off
the scoreboard all night as Neff and
fellow defenseman Pat Goff came up
with several big plays.
"I thought we played well defensively
but we broke down on our power play,"
said Michigan coach Red Berenson
while discussing Illinois-Chicago's two
shorthanded goals. "Those two goals
against our power play made the dif-
ference in the game."
The game began with a hungry
Illinois-Chicago squad taking the play
to the Wolverines and forcing Michigan
goalie Mark Chiamp to make several
big saves, one on a point-blank shot by
MICHIGAN OPENED the scoring at
10:12 of the period as Ray Dries and
Frank Downing moved the puck to
defenseman Gary Lorden at the left
point following a faceoff. Lorden rifled
a low slapshot past Illinois-Chicago
netminder Jim Hickey for his first
. The Wolverines' solid defense
managed to keep the Flames from
lighting the red light until the 17:39
mark when Jamie Husgen took a loose
puck at the Michigan faceoff circle and
ripped a shot through the pads of a well-
The Flames capitalized in the second
period on two key Michigan miscues to
tally both of their shorthanded goals -
the twelfth and thirteenth Michigan has
allowed this season.
SCOTT KNUTSON began the shor-
thanded barrage at 1:25 of the period
when he stole the puck from defen-
seman Todd Carlile in front of the
Michigan net and flicked a shot over
Chiamp's shoulder from about ten feet
out for his thirteenth goal of the season.
The Flames' other shorthanded goal
came when Wolverine defenseman Bill
Brauer misplayed the puck at the
Illinois-Chicago blue line while
Michigan was setting up its power
UfC's Tom Almquist took the loose
puck down the ice and blasted a slap-
shot from the left point. Chiamp made
the initial save but Daryl Seltenrich
was right there to shove the puck past
the sprawled netminder.
Illinois-Chicago scored the eventual
game winner at 4:09 of the third period
as Terry Majich took a perfect pass
from Paul Tory on a two-on-one break
and beat Chiamp cleanly.
Michigan managed to pull within one
goal at 4-3 after Brad Jones' second goal
of the night at 12:06 of the third stanza
but could get no closer as the Flames'
defense tightened in the final 10
minutes of the contest.
"I thought Chiamp played a good
game," said Berenson, "and we
checked well and did a lot of the things
we wanted to do. We didn't capitalize on
our scoring chances."
The Wolverines will have to
capitalize in tonight's game if they hope
to make the CCHA playoffs. With just
two remaining home games, Beren-
son's team may have to earn a spot in
the post-season tournament on the

BADGERS MAY BITE:
'M' wary of Wisconsin
By JOE EWING
By JOE EWING
Special to the Daily
MADISON - Preventing an upset -
that's what Michigan Basketball coach
Bill Frieder is looking to do here today
as the Wolverines take on Wisconsin.
The mighty Wolverines, ranked tenth
in the country by the Associated Press
and 11th by United Press International,
are tied with Iowa for the Big Ten lead
with a 6-2 record (15-3 overall). Mean-
while the Badgers, who lost to Michigan
State, 77-68, Thursday night, share the
cellar with Northwestern at 1-7 (10-8
BUT FRIEDER, who always expects
a battle in Big Ten contests, does not
expect a cake walk, especially since his
team is on the road.
"Wisconsin will be tough," said the
fifth-year Wolverine top man. "It's a
national cable game, and they're
capable. They played Purdue well, and
they played Illinois well up there (two
weeks ago). They're going to win four
or five games at Madison this year, I
1 guarantee that. You've just got to hope
as a coach that you're not one of the
The last two years, Michigan has
been a casualty at Madison. Two years
go, the Wolverines fell, 82-70. Then last
.ear guard Rick Olson hit 39 points to
lead the Badgers to a 71-64 victory.
OLSON is back this year and could
give Michigan trouble. Last week, the 6-

per Big Ten game, had some problems

going to defend him a little better. I've

Frieder said, referring to Gary Grant.
"I'm going to try to prevent him from
taking the shots he wants to," said
Crant after Thursday night's Wolverine
"victory at Northwestern, "and make him
do the things he doesn't want to."
STILL, the freshman guard had not
yet made any definite game plans. "I'm
going to go up to Madison and see some
game film of him. I don't know exactly
. ywhat I'm going to do against him
'because I haven't seen him yet."
Another threat for Wisconsin is for-

" Welsh-Ryan Arena brought back a lot of
n: memories, mainly from my high school. After a $6.75
'ts million facelift, the inner arena looked more like the in-
ry side of a prep gymnasium than a college basketball
te stadium. Instead of placing regular individual seats in the
th arena, the designers decided to use two decks of high
ny school-style wooden bleachers. The rest of the arena is
beautiful, with the Northwestern sports Hall of Fame in
to the lobby. But the layout of the inner arena detracts from
ad the entire project, making'it look like it should be part of a
high school complex. Then again,
maybe a high school caliber team
should be playing in a high school

They acted as if they were disin-

of the game they sat on their hands
with their mouths shut, worse than
the fans at Crisler used to be before
the Wolverines got hot. They made
noise only to boo Andre-Goode or in
the early going when Shon Morris
broke the potential shutout.
