RECHSTEINER SIXTH IN NCAA'S

Trost is
By PETE STEINERT
It is easy to get lost in the shuffle when Iowa puts on a
record-breaking performance like they did last weekend
at the NCAA wrestling championships in Iowa City, but
Michigan's senior Kirk Trost was able to emerge from the
shadows to win the heavyweight crown.
Last year's runner-up defeated John Heropolous of Iowa
State, 6-3, to capture the title and become the Wolverines'
first national champion since 1979, when Mark Churella
took the 167-pound crown.
"IT FEELS real good being number one and winning
the last match of my wrestling career," said Trost,
finishing at 43-6.
The New Lenow, Ill. native was making his third appear-1
ance at the NCAAs, and the previous
experience proved to be valuable. "I
was relaxed and I didn't let anything
bother me," he commented. "I didn't.
pay attention to the crowd or the
television (the championship round
was televised on ABC's Wide World of
Sports)."
Trost, whose opponents included
X84-pound Emanuel Yarbrough from
Morgan State, probably faced his,
most difficult task in the semi-finals
against Nebraska's Gary Albright
who beat Trost earlier this season.
HOWEVER, Trost defeated the 325-
pounder this time, 4-2. "I tried to push
him around a little more this time and
force him to make mistakes," ex-
plained Trost.
The senior co-captain followed his
semi-final win with a win over Tr(
Heropolous in the finals. "Kirk con- ... NCAA l

trolled the match the whole way," noted Michigan head
coach Dale Bahr.
Trost's win in the finals secured the Wolverines an
overall tenth place finish with 32 points, finishing second
only behind Iowa among Big Ten schools.
ANOTHER key factor to the Wolverines finish was the
performance of 190-pounder Scott Rechsteiner.
Rechsteiner earned All-American honors with Trost by
finishing sixth in his weight class.
"We were pleased that he placed since this is his senior
year," said Bahr. "It was probably the best tournament of
the year for him."
Other Michigan wrestlers who competed but did not
place were William Waters (118 pounds), Doug Wyland
(126), and Kevin Hill (177). Hill's ef-
fort was hindered due to a 102 degree
fever on the second day of com-
petition.

Nothing stood in the way of the
Hawkeyes winning their ninth
straight national title. Only Yale in
golf and Southern California in track
have won as many consecutive
national championships.
Bahr described Iowa in two words,
"They're awesome."
The Hawkeyes set a record with five
individual titlists and they also set a
new mark for widest margin of vic-
tory, outscoring nearest competitor
Oklahoma by 73.25 points.

and their All-American forward,

PERSON'S 10 rebounds in the first
half was one less than the entire St.
John's team as the quick-jumping
Tigers, 10-15 pounds heavier per man
than the Redmen, constantly got
second and third shots on offense and
used their defensive rebounding to
trigger numerous fast breaks.
St. John's, which finished 31-5, was
the fourth of last year's Final Four
teams to be knocked out in the second
round this year joining Memphis
State, Villanova and Georgetown.
UNLV 70, Maryland 64
LONG BEACH, Calif. (AP)- For-
ward Anthony Jones, held to one point
in the opening 15:27 of play, scored 17
of his 25 points in the second half
yesterday to lead 11th-ranked
Nevada-Las Vegas to a 70-64 victory
over Maryland in a second-round
game of the NCAA West Regional
tournament.
The triumph at the Long Beach
Arena lifted the Rebels into the
semifinals of the West REgional
against unranked Auburn.

CHARLOTTE, N.C.(AP)-Kenny
Walker scored 32 points and third-
ranked Kentucky survived a late
charge to beat Western Kentucky 71-
64 in the second round of the NCAA
Southeast Regional basketball tour-
nament yesterday.
The Wildcast held a 16-point lead
with just under 11 minutes retraining,
but the lead dwindled to 63-59 on Fred
Tisdale's layup with 3:55 to play.
Western Kentucky, getting only its
second chance in school history at its
neighbor 120 miles to the northeast.,
could never get closer.
Roger Harden hit his only field
goals as the shot clock was running
down, James Blackmon followed with
a layup after Kannard Johnson hit a
free throw for Western Kentucky and
then Walker polished it off with four
free throws in the final 44 seconds.
The victory sends the Wildcats into
the Southeast Regionals semifinals in
Atlanta next week against a familiar
foe, Alabama, which beat Illinois 58-56
earlier in the day on Terry Coney's 12-
footer with one second to play.
Alabama 58, Illinois 56

second round of the NCAA Southeast
