ting out of the offensive pattern."
MICHIGAN, meanwhile, had
rediscovered its offensive pattern. Two
free throws by Robert Henderson,
layups by Tarpley and Joubert, a
Joubert charity toss and a breakaway
dunk by Tarpley put Michigan up 55-43
with 1:47 left.
Henderson was especially instrumen-
tal in the comeback, taking a crucial
charge and scoring six of his ten points
in the second half.
"He came and got some unexpected
rebounds," said Wilson. "We were
worried about Tarpley and Wade and
he surprised us."
THE KNIGHTS, however, had one
surprise left for the Wolverines. Tar-
pley's dunk, and a subsequent missed
jam by Gary Grant, gave Fairleigh
Dickinson two points on foul shots.
Though their fourth starter fouled out
with a minute and a half left, the
Knights pulled back to within two, 57-55,
with ten seconds left before Tarpley
iced the victory with two free throws.
"We got a little sloppy down the
stretch," said Wolverine coach Bill
Frieder. "That's the sign of a young
team that hasn't been in this situation
for a long time.''
The situation midway through the
second half looked anything but
promising for Michigan. According to
Hampton, the Knights could see defeat
in the Wolverines' faces.
