'Frosh Wyland
scores for Blue

By PETE STEINERT
Life is never easy for a freshman
restler, but in Doug Wyland's case,
the highs have outnumbered the lows.
The Pittsburgh native is currently
fourth among Wolverines in wins with
27 and tied for second in pins with 10.
Wyland was runner-up at 118 pounds
at the Ohio Open and the Las Vegas
Classic, and he beat Iowa's Steve
Knight for the championship at the
Northern Open.
THAT IS a mouthful for anyone, let
alone a freshman. "It doesn't happen
very often when a kid can beat some
of the best wrestlers in the country as
a freshman," said Michigan head
coach Dale Bahr.
Wyland's journey to Michigan star-
ted at North Allegheny High School
just outside of Pittsburgh. He com-
piled a record of 101-9 in three years
and was State AAA Champion in Pen-
nsylvania his senior year at 112 poun-
ds.
"I would have put him up against
any collegiate wrestler, knowing he
wouldn't embarrass himself," said
his high school coach Gus
D'Augustino. "That's how good he
was."
D'AUGUSTINO knew Wyland was
special, even in junior high. "He had
good balance, nice position, and he
was very easy to teach."
With Wyland's high school success
came the college offers. After Prin-
ceton rejected, him, Wyland con-
sidered Indiana and North Carolina
but decided to come to Michigan.
Bahr became aware of Wyland
through D'Augustino, who works at
his summer camp. "I knew the type of
program Michigan had and also the
coaching staff," explained
D'Augustino. "I didn't push Doug into
going to Michigan, but I told him he
should look into it."
"I LIKED the good combination of
wrestling and academics (at
Michigan)," said Wyland. "The con-
centration on wrestling wasn't un-
balanced with education.
"Michigan is a classy organization.
It's nice to be part of something with
so much tradition."
Wyland started the 1985-86 season

behind junior William Waters, but
Bahr soon became aware of his poten-
tial. "Two or three weeks into prac-
tice we had Will (Waters) and
(Wyland) go a couple of matches just
to see how he would do," said Bahr.
"Doug won one, and Will won one.
"RIGHT THEN I knew because I
have a lot of respect for Will's
wrestling, and if a freshman can come
in and in three weeks stick with a
junior who has already been in the Big
Ten finals, then he has to be tough."
During the early season meets,
Wyland started to firmly establish
himself. "I was real happy with the
way I did. I gained momentum from
week to week.
"At first all I wanted to do was
make the team. That was my goal. Af-
ter I found I could keep up with these
guys, I gained someeconfidence and
realized I belonged here."
BAHR ATTRIBUTES Wyland's
early success to his strength. "A lot of
freshmen are not as physically strong
as upper classmen, but Doug came in
as a very physical freshman, so he
didn't have that problem with ad-
justing.
"In addition to that, he has great
technique, and he's a great com-
petitor."
Wyland's success has not come
easy, and the length of the season has
started to take its toll. On the
Wolverines' current road trip, Wyland
lost consecutive matches at North-
western and Iowa State.
"I lost to a kid I should not have lost
to at Iowa State," he said. "The length
of the season has definitely affected
my wrestling. It's just unbelievable.
The season is about two and a half
months longer than in high school.
"You don't meet any bums in
college wrestling like in high school.
You have to be prepared to go seven
hard minutes every match."
Saturday will be somewhat of a
homecoming for Wyland as he and the
team travel to Pennsylvania to face
highly regarded Penn State. The
competition and the location may just
send Wyland back on the winning
road.

Tarheels win in OT

ATLANTA (AP) - Brad Daugherty
sent the game into overtime with a 10-
footer from the baseline and then
gave top-ranked North Carolina the
lead it never relinquished as the Tar
Heels overcame a 13-point second-half
deficit and edged No. 2 Georgia Tech,
78-77, in an Atlantic Coast Conference
basketball game last night.
Joe Wolf hit four free throws in the
final 46 seconds of overtime, including
two that iced the game with 11 seconds
left in the first meeting this season
between teams ranked first and
second in The Associated Press poll.
GEORGIA Tech appeared to have
the game under control when Mark
Price sank two free throws with 11:56
remaining to give the Yellow Jackets
a 59-46 lead.
Wolf started a 9-0 run by the Tar
Heels, who eventually cut the lead to
two points on a 20-footer by freshman
Jeff Lebo with 4:55 to play.
Lebo later drilled two free throws
with 1:19 remaining to cut the lead to
69-68.
Antoine Ford hit one of two free
throws for Georgia Tech five seconds
later and Daugherty closed out the

regulation scoring at 70-70 with 55
seconds left.
After Daughterty hit a 15-foot jum-
per from the free-throw line, Smith
made a layup to give North Carolina a
74-70 lead in the five-minute extra
period.
