ichigan ruggers

romp in tournament

By EMILY BRIDGHAM
Bowing out in the final match of the University of Vic-
toria Invitational Rugby Tournament, the two Wolverine
squads came away with a pair of second-place finishes in
the highly touted event March 15.
Marking the first time a U.S. team has made it to the
final round of the tournament, according to club president
Michael Lisi, Michigan's losses at the hands of the host
UVic Vikings only left the Wolverines with respect for the
top ranked club.
"THEY PLAYED an extremely disciplined game, more
then matching our greater size with tremendous speed
and superior rugby skills," said Michigan captain David
Argyle. "We had the better of them in the set pieces but it
seemed like every time we had the ball out to the backs we
lost possession and they scored."
UVic's star fullback Mark Wyatt romped in the finals
for the Vikings, scoring nine points in the team's 36-3
pounding of the Wolverines. Wyatt, a kicker on the
Canadian National team is considered one of the top five
kickers in the world.. He lived up to this ranking on Satur-
day, scoring unassisted, on one penalty goal and three
conversions.
Playing minus the services of former U.S. national
team member John Hartman, the Wolverines only points
came at the hands of scrumhalf Paul Knight. Knight
scored two penalty goals in the semi-final match win over
Alberta to clinch a berth in the finals.
IN THE first round Michigan forfeited before a second-

round victory over the University of Calgary. The 28-0
termination of the Canadian team came largely through
the action on the front line of the Wolverine squad.
The ball was kept in with the forwards who used suc-
cessive waves of short runs up the field to keep Calgary in
retreat until later in the match when the squad brought in
its back line. This strategy worked to advance the club to
the quarter finals where it faced the Vancouver Island
Valhillians.
Michigan took the match 11-10 against this highly talen-
ted squad made up of several Canadian national team
members. Center Dale Tuttle managed to score for the
Wolverines on a run in, but the main action was supplied
by prop Ian Chapman who bulldozed his way into the zone
carrying several Valhillians on his back.
Michigan's semi-final victory was not as exciting. "It was
a somewhat anti-climactic match," attributed club
president Michael Lisi. "Neither team could mount any
offense."
Michigan's other squad posted a similar record in the
invitational opening the tournament with a 44-0 massacre
of Alberta. The team remained victorious through the
outstanding play of hooker Paul Lund, center John Lid-
dicoat and scrumhalf Curt Small according to Lisi. The
loss in the finals came at the hands of University of Vic-
toria,14-0.
The club has its season opener scheduled for March 22
versus the Cincinnati Wolfhounds. Game time is 12 p.m.
at Mitchell Field on Fuller Road.

NCAA busts Badgers

Special to the Daily
The men's tennis team captured all
three of its doubles matches against
Texas A&M but was unable to win any
of the singles matches in a 6-3 loss to
the Aggies Tuesday.
The match was held at College
Station, Texas, and marked the
second loss in as many days for the
Wolverines, who are in the midst of a

week-long sojourn to the Lone Star
State.
MICHIGAN'S first doubles team,
Jim Sharton and Ed Filer, had little
trouble with Texas A&M's Paul
Haggart and Duane Goldfine. The
combination of Jon Morris and John
Royer disposed of Chris Stanich and
Kimmo Alkao, 6-4, 7-6, before team-
mates Brad Koontz and Chip McColl
completed the sweep by downing
Dean Johnson and Marcel Voz 7-6, 6-3.
While the Wolverines had little
trouble playing in pairs, the results of
their individual efforts were

disastrous. Six matches resulted in
six losses, the most one-sided of which
was Filer's 6-0, 6-1 loss to Voz.
Even Sharton, a two-time all-Big
Ten selection fell victim to the Aggies,
succumbing to Johnson 6-2, 6-4. The.
doubles team of Morris and Royer~
fared little better than Sharton.
Morris lost Stanich while Goldfine-
dropped Royer.
The two freshman who appeared in
the lineup lost their matches as well,
but they proved that they could play-
with their opposition. Goldberg fell to
Alkao 6-3, 3-6, 6-4.

MADISON (AP) - Former Wiscon-
sin basketball star Cory Blackwell
received a loan from a fan to buy a car
pless than four months after getting
another loan that has been deter-
mined to be an apparent violation of
NCAA rules, a report released yester-
day said.
The report done for the Big Ten
school by Milwaukee County
Assistant District Attorney Thomas
P. Schneider said it was unclear
whether the second auto loan would
constitute an infraction of National
Collegiate Athletic Association rules.
UNIVERSITY of Wisconsin Athletic
Director Elroy Hirsch could not be
reached immediately for comment.
He did not return calls to his office
yesterday.
Blackwell, who played for the
Badgers from 1981 to the end of the
1983-84 season, received a total of

concluded in January that the first
loan violated NCAA rules because the
fan who guaranteed it, Madison
lawyer Donald Eisenberg, was a
member of a Badger booster club.
But Schneider said it was unclear
whether Mrs. Onsrud was a booster
club member when she loaned Black-
well the money for a second car.
Blackwell apparently gave his mother
the car he had purchased with the
other loan, the report said.
Mrs. Onsrud's family had con-
tributed to the Big Red Basketball
Boosters in 1978, 1980 and 1981. But a
$50 check she wrote to the fund in 1982
bounced, the report said.
Schneider said there was no eviden-
ce that any Wisconsin Athletic Depar-
tment officials knew about Mrs. On-
srud's loan to Blackwell.
In his earlier report, Sci nieder said
Associate Athletic Director Otto
Breitenbach knew about the loan
guarantee for the first car but failed
to inform the NCAA of the possible
rules violation, as required byNCAA
regulations.

LAKELAND, Fla. (AP) - Kirk
Gibson hit two homers and Nelson
Simmons and Mike Laga one each, but
it took Chet Lemon's bases-loaded,
ninth-inning single to give the Detroit
Tigers an 11-10 exhibition victory over
the Cincinnati Reds yesterday.
The Tigers led by as much as 8-1
before the Reds stormed back agaisnt
/ r a parade of relief pitchers.
GIBSON, making his first ap-
pearance since receiving an injecton
over the weekend for his sore left
shoulder, drove in five runs with a
pair of tape-measure homers, his
second and third of the preseason.
The Tigers homers and Detroit's
shaky relief pitching overshadowed a
sparkling pitching performance by
Frank Tanana, who went the first five
id in innings for Detroit, allowing just one
hit, striking out six and walking four.
