omen cagers drop finale
By RICK KAPLAN
Hunger drove the Michigan's basketball team close to vic-
tory in yesterday's finale. The Wolverines were starving for
a win, having lost 13 games in a row. They came close to
tasting victory, but Orethia Lilly's last second shot bounced
off the rim, sealing a 61-59 Indiana win at Crisler Arena.
Trailing by 17 at halftime, 37-20, the Wolverines mounted a
successful comeback, tying the contest at 57-57 with 2:52
remaining on a Lorea Feldman layup. Indiana's Noelle
Young hit a 12-foot jumper, and Karna Abram made both
free throws on a one-and-one opportunity to put the'Hoosiers
up by four with a minute and a half to play.
MICHIGAN freshman Kelly Benintendi swished a shot
from a foot above the foul line to cut the edge to 61-59 with 39
seconds left. Abrams then floated an air ball that bounced
over the lines untouched, returning possession to the home
team with :21 seconds showing on the clock. After a time-out,
Benintendi launched a shot from the free throw line that
missed; Lilly grabbed the rebound in the lane, but her tur-
naround attempt off the glass fell harmlessly off the rim as
the buzzer sounded.
"We really showed our desire to get back in it in the second
half," said Michigan head coach Bud Van De Wege. "I said
at the half, 'You guys are flat and tired (from Thursday
night's game against Ohio State). You don't want to end the
season the way you played in the first half.' In the second half
they played with a lot of heart and enthusiasm."
It took the Wolverines ten full minutes to scratch their way
back. Michigan trailed 43-26 when Benintendi canned a 15-
footer, three minutes into the final frame. That began a 21-8
run, capped by three consecutive hoops by Wendy Bradetich,
bringing the Blue within two points. The teams traded
baskets most of the rest of the way.
The Hoosiers dominated the first half with their strong in-
side play. Abram (23 points) and Cindy Bumgarner (20 poin-
ts) worked well together, dumping the ball to the weak side
for numerous layups and short turnaround shots. The pair
combined for 27 points in the first twenty minutes.
The Wolverines ended the year with a 7-20 record, 1-17 in
the Big Ten. Indiana finished up at 16-12, 11-7 in league play.

for CCHA title, 5-1
from Cookie to The Rock
NEWS ITEM: "Van Lingle Mungo, a former Brooklyn Dodger and New
York Giant who was one of the top pitchers in baseball during the
1930's, died in his hometown of Pageland, S.C. He was 73."
Was I the only person to note and grieve the loss of one of the greatest gifts
sports has ever given us?
Forget the fact that his playing days were over almost 50 years ago.
Forget the fact that Mungo's name doesn't appear in any of the record books
anywhere. Van Lingle Mungo in my mind is the representative of one of the
greatest sideshows in sports, the sports name.
Sports names have always been a fascination for me. At least as important
as height and weight on a roster is how an athlete's label rolls off the tongue.
If Georgetown wins the NCAA basketball championship this year, the cham-
pionship will be tainted by the fact that they have no great names. It is with
great pride and satisfaction, however, that I report that Michigan has no
shortage of truly unique, compelling names. Here's a list of my favorites, in
no particular order.
Jonnie Terry (field hockey) - The senior goaltender has been one of the
few bright spots for the beleaguered field hockey team for the past few
years. Terry makes the list for two reasons: 1) anyone with two first names
is an automatic as is 2) any female with a male first name, or vice versa.
Cookie Henry (women's basketball) - Just your average great nickname,
but anyone whose nickname appears without their real name on a statistic
sheet (a la Spud Webb) is OK by me. Henry, incidentally has done a good job
as a junior walk-on.
Mile DerGarabedian (wrestling) - Besides the fact that no one in the
world has any idea which syllables get the stress, I love any name with more
than one capital letter. I used to live in Guam, where 20 percent of the
population goes by the surname LeonGuerrero. I love it.
Garland Rivers (football) - The defensive back probably has the best
sports name on campus. It's not flashy or particularly eye-catching, but like
another favorite, Rowland Office of the Atlanta Braves, it's a name you love
to hear. River's appearance on the list is bolstered by the names of the
players who preceded him at that position: Marion Body and John Lott.
Triando Markrav (football) - Wide receivers are almost in a class by
themselves: Stanley Shakespeare, Al Toon and Alonzo Highsmith to name a
Antoine Joubert (basketball) - You could conceivably put the entire
basketball team on this list, which is why I feel Michigan deserves the
national championship over the no-name teams. As for Joubert, great name,
great ball player, what more can you say?
Leslie Rockymore (basketball) - I'm really looking forward to tour-
nament time on ESPN, when we can here Dick Vitale come up with such
gems as "The Rock tickling the twine with the 20-foot 'J'."
Gerard Rudy (basketball) - The senior who has been sidelined for much
of the year with a leg injury makes the list with (again) two first names.
Gary Grant calls him "Rudy Gerard."
Mark Chiamp (ice hockey) - When you have a name like Chiamp and you
wear a "1" on your jersey, you had better be good. Fortunately for the
Wolverines, Chiamp is very good. The 5-6 graduating goaltender will be
Charles DeGlopper (basketball) - One of the most unlikely basketball
names belongs to one of the most unlikely basketball players. As a walk-on
this season, DeGlopper has seen, well, limited playing time. Just try to con-
vince me that the people who yell "DeGlopper, DeGlopper" at the end of
blowouts aren't doing it partially because of the name.
Bo Schembechler (football coach) - How many people know that Bo's fir-
st name is Glenn, or that his wife's name is Millie? At least part of his fame
and reputation comes from the name.
In case you're worried about the future of Michigan sports names, relax
and take a look at the recruiting class for next year. With such names as J.P.
Oosterbaan and Billy Butts (basketball); J.J. Grant, Demitrius Brown and
Sean LaFountaine (football) the future seems to be in good hands.

Special to the Daily
The Red Wings play there, the
Pistons play there, but nobody
dominates at Joe Louis Arena as well as
Michigan State's hockey team.
The Spartans defeated Lake Superior
State, 5-1, for the CCHA playoff cham-
pionship and their 14th straight victory
at the arena. The game capped another
successful tournament at JLA. The
finale attracted a CCHA record crowd
MICHIGAN State jumped out in front
early with two goals within 35 seconds.
Left wing Dale Krentz scored at 6:53 on
the power play, taking a pass from Tom
Anastos who had justed stepped out of
the penalty box himself. Krentz fired a
shot from just outside the right circle
past Laker goalie Randy Exelby.
~Before the cheering from a partisan
MSU crowed died down, defenseman
Dan McFall rifled another slap shot
past Exelby at 7:28. Exelby was
screened by heavy traffic out in front on
The Spartans had several other
scoring opportunities. But Foster set-
tled down and was equal to the task.
Foster turned away 10 shots, and his
defense rarely allowed rebound oppor-
tunities. Foster was named tournament
Most Valuable Player.
"It was a good weekend for the whole
team," said Foster. "I had a good
defense in front of me, the wingers were
picking up their wings and that made
my job easier. Without them, I don't
think I could be here."
The Spartans broke through at 12:13
of the period, scoring two more quick
goals within 1:15. Anastos scored the
first goal, and assists were credited to
Craig Simpson and Lyle Phair, but an
assist should have been awarded to
Laker defenseman Chris Dahlquist.
Dahlquist nonchalantly went after a
loose puck, and overskated it. Anastos
picked up the puck at the Laker's blue
line, deked Chris Guy and backhanded
a shot under Exelby's legs.
"I think Tom Anasto's goal broke out
back," said LSSC coach Frank An-
zalone. "I thought we played very even,
but they blitzed us. They're two or three
players better than us, let's admit that
right now and get it over with."

hardly mount an attack against State

test Foster, he was somewhat shakey,
bobbling a couple of shots.

Mike Donnelly and skated down the

about passing the puck to Donnelly,

DETROIT (AP) - Doug Sulliman scored his 20th goal of
the season midway through the finale period yesterday to
snap a 4-4 tie and lead the New Jersey Devils to a come-from-
behind 8-5 victory over the Detroit Red Wings.
Sulliman, who scored only six goals in 67 games for Har-
tford last season, picked up Greg Adams' rebound and beat
Detroit netminder Greg Stefan with a 25-foot wrist shot to put
the Devils ahead to stay.
JAN LUDVIG, Jim Higgins and Adams added goals for
New Jersey late in the final period before Detroit's Joe Kocur
closed out the scoring with his first NHL goal with 57 seconds
New Jersey bounced back from 3-0 and 4-1 deficits with
four second-period goals, including two on the power-play
and Mel Bridgman's third short-handed tally of the season.
