Women cagers drop two

By DAVE ARETHA
While the Michigan men's basketball
team is streaking across the highway of
victory, the women cagers are tum-
bling down the road of defeat.
The women's team, losers of seven
consecutive games, dropped two road
contests over the weekend. Purdue top-
ped the Wolverines 66-57 on Friday, and
Illinois smothered them.88-65 on Sun-
day. Michigan is now 7-14 overall and 1-
10 in the Big Ten.
HOWEVER, head coach Bud Van De
Wege reminded everyone that this is his
first year as the leader of the
Wolverines. He compared his position
with that of men's coach Bill Frieder's
No one faces cancer alone.
Call us.
AMERICAN CANCER SOCIETY'

a few years back.
"We just have to be patient, just like
Frieder did with his team," Van De
Wege said. "Look how they bounced
back from 7-20 a few years ago (1981-
1982). We're recruiting the players we
want. It's just going to take time.
Michigan's losing streak can be
blamed, appropriately, on streaky play
Against Purdue, the Wolverines shot
eight for 30 from the floor in the first
half and trailed the Boilermakers 31-19
at the intermission. They roared back
to tie the score at 49-49, but then allowed
12 straight Purdue points late in the
game to seal their fate.
IN ILLINOIS it was a similar scene.
Michigan hung tough early against the
Illini (13-8, 7-4), and trailed by only
seven, 39-32, at halftime. However, the
Wolverines were outscored 12-2 at the
start of the second half and were never
in the game after that.

"The way we have to play to be com-
petitive is to play with all-out intensity
and just go at people," Van De Wege
said. "And that intensity is difficult to
sustain when you're playing with seven
people."
THE COACH said he was especially
proud of the play of freshman Kelly
Benintendi. The 5-9 guard fired in 10
second half.points in the team's come-
back attempt against Purdue. She has
been one of the few consistent players
during the losing streak.
"Her progress has just been tremen-
dous," Van De Wege said. "She's the
first one out in practice and the last one
to leave. Without a doubt she has been
our most improved player, and for a
freshman she has really come on well."

THINCLADS TUNE-UP FOR CHAMPIONSHIPS
Eastern meet provides test for tracksters

4

By HOWARD SOLOMON
"To be honest with you, I'm not especially op-
timistic at this point" are the words of Michigan
track coach Jack Harvey. However he is quick to add
that his crew sports "a lot of younger guys who are
just coming into their own."
This past weekend Harvey's young harriers
traveled to the 14th annual Eastern Michigan Track
Classic. Although there was no team scoring, Harvey
saw the meet as a chance to evaluate many of his
younger runners.

"I RESTED most of my distance runners this
week," he said, "so I can work them hard for next
week's Central Collegiate Championships and the Big
Ten Championships in early March.
"The Eastern Classic was basically a tune-up for
the younger guys."
Harvey was especially pleased with the effort of
Ron Simpson, who took sixth place in a very fast 800
meters. "Simpson is coming along," Harvey said.
"He gets better every week."
A VALIANT EFFORT was also turned in by Omar
Davidson, who was doing well until he tripped near

the finish line in the 500 meter race. Todd Steverson
was quick to take over for Davidson, however, gar-
nering second place.
Paul Mister, who took second in the 100 meters, and
Rick Swilley, who finished fourth in the invitational
400-meter dash, provided Michigan's other notable
performances.
Coach Harvey predicts a better showing in next
Saturday's meet in the Track and Tennis Building.
"If you want to see a good meet, this is it," he said.
"We have most of the Big Ten teams coming up, and I
think you will see some pretty fast times."

Despite finishing in third place
behind Michigan State (174.85) and In-
diana (175.50) in a four-team meet, the
women's tumblers had an excellent
weekend. The Wolverines score of
174.85 was their second highest this
season.
However, the men did not do as well.

The male tumblers posted one of their
worst scores of the year, a 243.6, which
put them in last place behind Michigan
State (266.35) and Kent State (255.3) in
the coed meet held at Crisler Arena
Sunda.
MICHIGAN WOMEN'S coach Dana
Kempthorn said the meet gave her

what she wanted. "A good team score is
what we were shooting for," Kem-
pthorn said. "We need higher scores to
qualify for the regional championships.
Our score was more important than
winning or losing."
Leading the way for the lady tum-
blers was Heidi Cohen, who scored a
35.7 in the all-around. That score was

the Michigan Union!
The Center of Campus Life
now has even more to offer,
with the opening of six
new services on
the ground level.

the best for the team and placed her
fourth overall.
"Heidi is becoming quite consistent,
and she pulled off some great
routines," commented Kempthorn.
"Her mental preparation sets a great
example for our team."
IN HER LAST Crisler Arena ex-
perience, senior Christy Schwartz
scored a 9.15 on the uneven parallel
bars, which placed her in a tie for
second place. "It was an excellent final
performance. Christy does a great job
on the bars," said Kempthorn.
Next Saturday, the lady tumblers
travel to Wisconsin to face all the Big
Ten teams against which they have yet
to compete. "The Wisconsin In-
vitational will be a super indication of
how our team stands in comparison to
the other Big Ten schools," said Kem-
pthorn.
Michigan men's coach Bob Darden
attributed his team's poor showing to
"a large drop in each gymnast's con-

...scores two bests
sistency." Also, freshman all-arounder
Nick Lanphier did not compete due to
illness.
"COMPETING WITH only five all-
arounders put a lot more pressure on
the team because everyone's score
counted instead of the best five out of
six," said Darden. "Our guys trained
hard last week adding some new tricks
to their routines. Unfortunately, the
tricks did not work well."
Gavin Meyerowitz had his season
