halftime deficit. The Wolverines held
the Illini to slightly better than 36 per-
cent, themselves shooting 56 percent on
the way to a 57-45 win.
The defense was not there, but Roy
Tarpley's offense was, as Michigan
topped Purdue 96-85 last Thursday.
Also the game's high scorer in the
Illinois game, the junior center scored a
career high 31 points against the
Boilermakers.
Michigan head coach Bill Frieder,
however, declined to single out any one
player.
"It's been a solid team effort," he
said. "We're getting a lot of mileage out
of a lot of people at different positions."
ESPN's Esocoff said Michigan has
been helped in the ratings by wider
national exposure, including network
coverage of the Kansas game and
ESPN coverage of the Illinois and Iowa
games.
"It 's always tough to overcome the
exposure Indiana gets in the Midwest,"
said Esocoff. "Once (the Wolverines)
L overcome that, they should get what
they deserve."

Leach s
DELRAY BEACH, Fla, (AP)-Former
Wolverine Mike Leach rode his
booming serve and the brisk, swirling
winds to a stunning 7-5, 6-2 upset victory
yesterday over second-seeded Mats
Wilander in the $1.8 million Lipton In-
ternational Players Championships
tennis tournament.
The surprising triumph boosted
Leach, 1982 NCAA singles champion,
into the quarterfinals of this inaugural
two-week, Grand Slam-size tour-
nament.
-Leach dominated Wilander, who has
won three Grand Slam tournaments, in
the second set, ripping off the first four
games, then holding serve in the sixth
and eighth games to move into the next
round.
"It's beginning to turn into a dream,"
Leach. said after-his victory over
Wilander a day after he upset No. 10
Jimmy Arias.
Swimmers dunk Iowa
They've been the surprise of the Big
Ten this season but they don't wear
tank- tops, play on the hardwood or
dribble the roundball.
That's right, Coach Jon Urbanchek's
swimmers do none of that, but they do
cut through the H20 faster than any
challenger. In Iowa City Saturday, the
Wolverines nosed by the Hawkeyes, 63-
50, to retain their hold on the Big Ten
lead and up their record to 6-0, 3-0 inside
the conference.
Diving near his home town of Cedar
Rapids, Kent Ferguson edged out
teammate Bruce Kimball in both diving
competitions to give the Wolverines a 14
point advantage in the diving.

hines in Florida

Said Urbanchek, "If we didn't have
the diving, Iowa would have won by one
point."
But he refused to credit the victory to
his divers: "We shouldn't look at it like
that. Diving is just two events in
swimming."
Themcoach preferred to pin the suc-
cess on his swimmers, two of whom
shattered old school records. Junior
Benoit (pronounced ben-WAH)
Clement bettered his own mark in the
1000-meter freestayle. Freshman Jon-
Erik Olson brought down a twelve-year-
old record with a splendid performance
in the 200-yard breaststroke.
Assistant Coach Mark Noetzel
praised Olson saying, "It was
especially impressive since he's only a
freshman and that was the oldest
record in Michigan history."

How's the food Vernon?
KALAMAZOO (AP)-Coach Vernon
Payne doesn't mind that his family
voted him out of the house and into a
dorm room. It's part of his plan to turn
around the basketball program at
Western Michigan University.
Payne, 39, resides in Room 615 in
Western's Eicher Hall. He is the lone
occupant; his roommate for the last 19
years, his wife, Dorphine, is at home
with the kids.
"It's like dating," Dorphine Payne
said of the unusual living arrangement.
"I do go over there and visit with him...
take a bottle of wine."
At the start of the week, the Broncos
were 11-10 overall and 6-6 in the Mid-
America Conference, compared with
season records of 4-22 overall and 2-16
in the conference a year ago.

USFL to try replays
NEW YORK (AP)-The United States
Football League said yesterday it may
go ahead with the use of taped replays
to decide controversial calls even if the
networks that televise the league of-
ficially won't participate in the project.
"I think it will go in for the regular
season if it works at a second test,"
Byrne said.
