got the lead," said Michigan coach Bill
Frieder. That was to their credit. When
we got the lead the second time,
everything we did seemed to be right
and everything they did just seemed to
go the wrong way."
Michigan pulled out quickly in the fir-
st half, jumping to 23-14 lead nine
minutes into the contest before it suf-
fered a defensive breakdown, allowing
Minnesota to make a 14-4 run and take a
28-27 advantage. Gopher center John
Shasky sparked the comeback with six

"IT WAS fun out there," said
Michigan guard Antoine Joubert,
whose 17 points topped the Michigan
scoring attack and whose defense held
Minnesota's scoring machine Tommy
Davis to a mere five points.
"Everything went for us. It was nice
too, because everyone got a chance to
play."
And all of the Wolverines scored as
well, as reserve guard Ron Gibas
picked up his first points of the year on a
second half buzzer shot that sent the
Crisler Arena fans, as well as the
Michigan bench, into a frenzy.
Michigan hit a sparkling 54.5 percent
from the floor during the first half, and
then got even hotter in the second half,
making 69.6 percent of its field goals.
OVERALL, each of the Michigan
starters scored in double figures, with
center Roy Tarpley following up
Joubert's 17 points with 16 of his own,
while forward Rich Rellford hit for 14
and Butch Wade and Gary Grant had 12
each.

Wade was also a dominating force
under the hoop for Michigan pulling
down 13 rebounds. In all, Michigan out-
boarded the Gophers, 39-29.
"A lot of those rebounds just came
my way," said Wade. "I just had to
reach up and grab them."
MINNESOTA, meanwhile, struggled
on the floor, hitting only 43.3 percent of
its shots in the first half and then
sinking a mere 32.3 percent after the in-
termission.
Shasky, a junior out of Birmingham
Brother Rice, put up 13 points for the
Gophers in the first half, but was then
held to five in the second half. Michigan
was also successful at shutting down
the hot Minnesota guard tandem of

Davis and freshman Todd Alexander,
who scored just four.
"We made one run from when we
went from nine down to one ahead,"
said Minnesota head coach Jim Dut-
cher, a former Michigan assistant.
"Then the game really got away from
us."
To start the second half, the Gophers
were able to score only a single point in
the first four minutes on a Davis free
throw, while the Wolverines ran off nine
points and expanded their lead to 21, 52-
31.
"And it was pretty well over then,"
said Dutcher.

No play, no Paul:
Jokiseli quits hoops

By PAUL HELGREN
Paul Jokisch has left the basketball
team in order to train full time for foot-
ball.
Jokisch, a 6-7 wide receiver, had
rejoined the basketball team at the end
of the football season. He had been on
Bill Frieder's team since the Tennessee
game on December 29, but did not see
any action through five contests.
"I JUST couldn't see devoting all that
time and effort for two or three minutes
of playing time," Jokisch said yester-
day.
Frieder said Jokisch's decision was
made by mutual agreement. "Three
weeks ago we talked and said if he
wasn't integrated into the team in three
weeks he should devote himself to
training for football," Frieder said. "I
came to him last week and suggested he
concentrate on football."
Jokisch, a junior, played basketball
his first two years at Michigan before
switching to the grid. A high school All-
American at Birmingham Brother Rice
in both football and basketball, Jokisch
caught 10 passes and scored two touch-

downs this past season. He has two
years of football eligibility remaining.
Frieder did not rule out a return by
Jokisch to the basketball team, if cir-
cumstances warrant it.
"If we get a couple of injuries and get
thin down the line, we could bring him
back. You never know.'

BIG TEN ROUNDUP:
Hawkeyes
EAST LANSING (AP) - Greg Stokes
scored 27 points to lead Iowa to a 79-65
victory over 19th ranked Michigan
State last night in Big Ten college
basketball.
The Hawkeyes,3-1 in the Big Ten and
14-3 overall, led all the way. But it was
an eight-point burst - six by forward Al
Lorenzen - that gave the Hawkeyes a
48-35 lead with 10:59 left in the second
half and put the game away.
THE HAWKEYES hit on 23 of 27 free
throws in the second half to keep
Michigan State at bay. Lorenzen, who
finished with 15 points, was nine of 10
from the line in that span.
The loss, Michigan State's second
straight after falling to Illinois on
Saturday, drops the Spartans to 3-2 and

scored 22 points, including 14 in the
second half, last night as the 13th
ranked Fighting Illini came back from
a two-point halftime deficit to beat
Wisconsin 78-67.
The Badgers are 10-4 and 1-3 in the
Big Ten and were led by Scott Roth with
31 points. Rick Olson chipped in 12 for
Wisconsin.
LAST YEAR'S Big Ten MVP Bruce
Douglas added 16 for Illinois, which is
14-4 on the season and 3-2 in conference
play while Anthony Welch scored 14.
The first half was a see-saw affair
which resulted in six ties. Winters
scored eight of Illinois' first 10 points as
Illinois opened up an early 24-18 lead.
But the 6-foot-8 Roth, a senior for-
ward, brought the Badgers back.

Four swimmers raced to wins in
season-best times as Michigan suprised
Oakland University with a 90-50 victory
last night in Matt Mann Pool.
"They gave us some very close
races," said coach Peter Lindsay. "We
swam a little better than average and
they swam a little worse than
average."
THE VICTORY was the women's
swim team's first of the season and
avenged a 72-70 loss at Oakland last
season.
The 200-medley relay team led off the
meet with a win in 1:55.80. "We had
Cecilia (Sheehan) swim the second leg
instead of Melinda (Copp) and we
moved freshman DeeLynn Overmyer
into the second half of the race," said
Lindsay. "They weren't necessarily our
fastest individual swimmers, but the
combination worked."
Freshman Christi Vedejs won the 100-
yard breaststroke in 1:06.69 and the 100
freestyle in 55.27. Her time in the breast
stroke was a personal best.
CHRISTINE MaceMaster, also a

Leigh Ann Grabovez grabbed first in
the one-meter event and senior Angie
Poretta scored a season-high 267,60
points in winning the three-meter
diving.
Copp, a senior, rounded out the
Wolverine victors by winning the 100
backstroke and the 200 breaststroke.
In winning so convincingly last night,
the Wolverines readied themselves for
