T rD e nets UPI honors

Guards also lauded

UPI All-America Team

The college basketball season. may
not be over quite yet, but that hasn't
stopped the individual honors from
rolling in for Michigan, as three
Wolverines made notice yesterday on
both the United Press International All-
America squad and Associated Press
All-Big Ten team.
Center Roy Tarpley added to his
evergrowing list of seasonal honors
when he was named third team All-
America by UPI and first team All-Big
Ten AP. The 6-11 junior from Detroit,
who is the leading candidate for Big
Ten Player of the Year, earlier had
been named a third team All-America
by AP and first team All-Big Ten by
UPI.
JOINING Tarpley on both squads is
the Wolverine guard tandem of Antoine
Joubert and Gary Grant. Grant, 6-3,
freshman from Canton, Ohio, made the
second team of the AP all-conference
squad and was an honorable mention
UPI All-America selection. Last week,
Grant was named to the third team of
the UPI All-Big Ten squad.
- Joubert, a 6-5 sophomore, was
honorable mention on both the UPI and
AP teams named yesterday. Earlier,

he was a second squad UPI All-Big Ten
pick.
Wolverine forwards Butch Wade and
Rich Rellford also made the AP All-Big
Ten team. In addition, both were also
honorable mention on the UPI Big-Ten
squad.

SPORTS OF THE DAILY:
Grant is Big

Ten's top freshman

ONE SMALL VOICE
By Jeff Bergida
Cagers'ten best moments ...
... Casey counts them down
IT'S LIKELY that whatever happens to Michigan in the forthcoming NCAA
tournament will overshadow the regular season. If the Wolverines make
the Final Four, people will remember the post-season hysteria. If they get
upset early, it will cast a pall over past successes.
But these first 28 games deserve their moment in the sun. And who better
to give it than the master of the insignificant.
"This is'Casey Kasem for America Counts Down. We just gave you the
list of the country's favorite detergents and, wow, wasn't it an exciting race
between Tide and Fresh Start?
"Our next request for a countdown comes from Bill in Ann Arbor,
Michigan. Bill's letter asks us to compile the top ten moments of
Michigan's basketball season. It seems that the Wolverines have had a
pretty good year out in the Great Lakes State.
"Bill, we'll be happy to play your long-distance request. Here's your an-
nouncer with those exciting highlights."
10. Beating Illinois at Crisler Arena - Any victory over the hated Illini is
sweet but this one put Michigan into sole possession of first place in the Big
Ten, a lead they would never relinquish. Illinois was handicapped by more
than its lack of intelliegence as center George Montgomery broke his foot
two nights earlier. But revenge was still sweet.
After struggling through the first half, Michigan blew away Lou Henson's
club and pulled out to a 57-45 triumph.
9. The first time Gary Grant stepped on the court - We had all heard great
things about the kid from Canton. But he was only a freshman. How good
could he really be?
It didn't take more than a glance to see that this was one special kid. His
quick hands and persistent defense were the first clues. His touch from the
outside came next.
Purdue coach Gene Keady believes that Michigan would be a middle-of-
the-pack team without Grant. Sounds about right.
8. Winning at Purdue - A Bill Frieder-coached team had never beaten the
Boilermakers anywhere. But the Wolverines bounced back from a hear-
tbreaking overtime loss at Illinois to clobber the Boilers, 81-65, in raucous
Mackey Arena. Assistant coach Steve Fisher says that the spirit the team
demonstrated on this trip convinced him that it could go places.
7. Clinching the Big Ten title - This would, be higher except that, by the
time Ohio State lost to Iowa and was.mathematically eliminated, everyone
knew that the championship was in the bag.
The league was expected to go down to the final weekend but Illinois, Iowa
and Ohio State each had a slump which took it out of contention. Pre-season
co-favorite Indiana finished at 7-11. Shucks.
6. Coming back to win at Minnesota - The Gophers were psyched to upset
the league-leading Wolverines, who were coming off a .difficult win over
Iowa. Michigan trailed by seven late in the contest but never panicked. A
brilliant pass by Grant to Butch Wade set up the winning basket and a 66-64
victory at Minneapolis.
5. Grant's first-half against Kansas - With a national television audience
looking on, Gary went nuts. He scored a point a minute for the first 20, hitting
from everywhere on the court. The highly-ranked Jayhawks didn't know
what hit them. Kansas' Danny Manning couldn't shoot, pass or smile as well
as Grant on this day.
4. Garde Thompson's two second-half baskets at Iowa - The biggest win of
the year was gained, in large part, by a couple of 12-footers by the 6-1
sophomore. Iowa had pulled ahead by five with time running out. The 15,450
Hawkeye fans on handhad visions of a Big Ten title.
But Frieder inserted the Grand Rapids native into the line-up and the lead
shrunk to one in 30 seconds. Iowa lost that game and five of its next seven.
3. Leslie Rockymore's half-court bomb versus Kansas - It was so ap-
propriate for the only senior on the team to achieve his glory on national
television. The Rock let one go from 46 feet as the first half ended that hit
nothing but net.
The shot was shown on sports broadcasts everywhere. It even made Mary
Albert's Plays of the Month on Late Night with David Letterman.
2. Gary Grant's buzzer beater to defeat Indiana - This one almost made
number one. The outcome didn't mean much in the general scheme of things
but to finally beat Bobby Knight in his home asylum was a genuine thrill for
everyone involved with Michigan basketball.
The look on Knight's face when Grant capped off the Wolverine comeback
was priceless.
1. Roy Tarpley's shot to beat Iowa in the third overtime - If Michigan
had any fans, they would have suffered strokes during this one. The tension
was unbearable. On numerous occasions, it looked hopeless for Michigan.
But Tarpley ended the tension by following an Antoine Joubert miss back
in as time ran out. This game gave the Wolverines the impetus to win 13
more in a row.
"That's all for now. This is Casey Kasem reminding you to tune in next
week when we count down the ten best Bobby Knight tantrums."
Baseball owners see
bleak financial future

ANN ARBOR (UPI) - Gary Grant
turned down big money to play basket-
ball at the University of Michigan.
No, not from another university -
from the Milwaukee Brewers of the
American League.
Grant, a crack center fielder, was
Milwaukee's choice in the 20th round of
last June's free agent draft.
"THEY TOLD me they were going to
give me first- or third-round money,"
Grant said. "They told me they weren't
going to draft me then because nobody
knew about me."
The Brewers offered Grant $30,000 to
$40,000 but he spurned it quicker than
he swipes the ball on the basketball

court.
"They were already counting on me
at Michigan for basketball," said
Grant, unanimous selection by Big Ten
coaches as "Freshman of the Year" for
United Press International. "If I had
accepted, I would have let a lot of
people down who had already signed
(letters of intent)."
He was the No. 1 choice of all 11 coac-
hes as the league's top freshmen. Troy
Lewis of Purdue, Al Lorenzen of Iowa
and Todd Alexander of Minnesota drew
runnerup consideration.
COACH BILL Frieder was impressed
with Grant from the beginning. He went

with the freshman as a starter right
away. The only contest the Canton
(Ohio) McKinley did not open was
senior Leslie Rockymore's final home
game.
"We didn't expect as much as he's
givenyus," Frieder said. "There are
always problems with freshmen lear-
ning your system, developing,
maturing.
"But we knew he played hard,"
Frieder said, "and that he was well-
coached and had extreme quickness.
We figured because of his defense he
would blend in quicker than most
freshmen.
"What's surprised us is that offen-
sively he's been so good," the coach
said. "He gets big baskets."
UNL V caught cheating
LAS VEGAS (AP) - The University
of Nevada-Las Vegas football team was
ordered yesterday to forfeit 18 wins
over the last two years and surrender
its California Bowl championship and
conference title because seven
ineligible players were on the team.
The Pacific Coast Athletic
Association compliance committee im-
posed the penalty despite finding there

was no evidence the university iten-
tionally attempted to sidestep,
eligibility rules, PCAA Commissioner
Lew Cryer said.
"I'M TERRIBLY embarrassed at
this whole situation," said UNLV
President Robert Maxson. "I will not
again tolerate people knowingly
breaking the rules of this university."
The PCAA ruled UNLV must return
its California Bowl trophy to the con-
ference and give up the conference title
it won because of the use of the players.
UNLV beat Toledo 30-13 on Dec. 15 in
the game, played in Fresno, California.
The conference's action will be for-
warded to the NCAA which could im-
pose additional penalties after
reviewing the decision. University of-
ficials, however, said they did not ex-
pect any further sanctions.
By forfeiting the games, UNLV's
record for 1983 will go from 7-4 to 0-11
and its 1984 record will go into the books
as 0-13 instead of 11-2.
"The NCAA rules are very clear; if
you participate in a game with
ineligible players, you forfeit that,
game," said Maxson.
Wings deal Williams
DETROIT (AP) - Dave "Tiger"
Williams was traded by the Detroit Red
Wings to the Los Angeles Kings for
future considerations, the National
Hockey League team announced
yesterday.
Williams, 31, holds the league record
for penalty minutes with 3,157 in his 11
years in the NHL. He had been at
Detroit's Adirondack farm club in the
American Hockey League since Feb.
19, the Red Wings said in a statement.
HE HAD THREE goals, eight assists
and a team-high 163 penalty minutes in
55 games for the Red Wings this season.
He had five goals, twoassists and four
penalty minutes in eight games for the
Adirondack team.
Williams was acquired from Van-
couver last Aug. 8 in exchange for Rob
McClanahan. In 774 regular season
games for Toronto, Vancouver and
Detroit. Williams had 195 goals and 222
assists, in addition to his penalty
minutes record.

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - Major
league club owners yesterday predicted
a future of "deterioration" of baseball's
finances, with operating losses that
could top $150 million by 1988 if
management and the players union
cannot come together on a plan "to
safeguard" the game.
Representatives of the 26 club owners
presented a five-page letter to the
Major League Players Association
Tuesday, outlining what management
says are "financial operating
problems" of the teams.
WHILE FULL financial statements
were not available from all clubs for
1984, the report said 18 of 26 clubs
showed operating losses totaling about
$66 million in 1983. That represented an
average of $2.5 million in losses per
club. Of the eight clubs showing a
profit, five clubs reported gains of less
than $1 million.
The report said 11 clubs had returned
financial statements for'1984, nine of
which showed losses of more than $27
million, an average of more than $2.4

million per club.
The letter, signed by Player
Relations Committee President Lee
MacPhail, was delivered to union
executives during a meeting at a down-
town hotel. Don Fehr, acting head of the
union, said the report lacked certain
details that would help negotiators un-
derstand the problem entirely.
"WHAT WAS apparent immediately
is that we had no information that we
could look at and understand without
more details," Fehr said as the two-
hour session dispersed. "We have
asked for more details."
Another meeting with the
management team scheduled for Wed-
nesday was cancelled to allow the
Player Relations Committee, the
owners' bargaining unit, an opportunity
to provide the requested information.
Although MacPhail said the letter
"speaks for itself," he indicated his
committee would try to supply the
union with the information it needs to
get the talks rolling again.
