IOWA CITY - They say an animal
caught in a trap will chew off its own
leg to get away, and for a while in
their 61-57 basketball victory over
Iowa Saturday, the Wolverines looked
like they might be such animals.
The Hawkeyes' half-court trap
defense forced Michigan into 17 tur-
novers, nine after halftime, and
helped the Wolverines chomp their
own four-point lead down to a five-
point deficit midway through the
"THEY WOULD get you in the cor-
ner and they would come so quick,"
said Michigan guard Garde Thom-
pson, who tried without great success
to scratch his way out of several cor-
ner traps. "Their whole defense
would switch to that side.
"It was hard to get the ball opposite,
and it cost us a lot of turnovers."
But Michigan, being a generally
patient beast, used superior muscle to
punch the release on the Iowa trap,
pulling out to a five point lead with
1:27 left before settling for the final
"Their physicalness just wore us
down," said the Hawks' head hunter,
George Raveling. "We couldn't get
into our trapping areas. We just
didn't have the thrust we needed at
BY THEN the Wolverines had found
the weaker of those areas. Three of
Michigan's last six hoops were dunks,
and two of the others came on clean
rebounds of errant jump shots.
"They do a good job of .trapping,"
said Michigan head coach Bill
Frieder, "but sometimes it's effective
and other times it might lead you to
getting an easy second or third shot
because they overplayed so much."
FORWARD Richard Rellford took
the most advantage of Iowa's fatigue,
scoring nine of his 15 points during the
late Wolverine surge.
"He got some of that from their
overplay," said Frieder. "We were
keeping both guards on one side, and he
was free on the other."
Rellford was free, for example,
when Michigan was down 49-44 and
the Hawkeyes were converging on
Gary Grant high on the right side.
The sophomore guard saw Robert
Henderson cutting left to right across
the free throw line and zipped a pass
The pass went through Henderson's
hands, but because the defense had
shifted to the right side, Rellford was
free to pick up the loose ball and glide
down the left baseline for the dunk
that started the Wolverines'
AFTER HIS tip dunk put Michigan
ahead for good, 52-51, with three
minutes left, Rellford went to work on
the other end. The 6-6 senior stole one
Iowa pass, and on the next Hawkeye
possession, he pounded into the stands
an Al Lorenzen shot that would have
cut the Wolverine lead to three.
Lorenzen had beaten Michigan cen-
ter Roy Tarpley, who was playing
with four fouls, to take the shot.
"I'm usually the one reaching and
Roy's the one man blocking the shot,"
said Rellford. "So I looked at him
and I said, 'Hey, ne always gets
blocks so let me try and block a
"I JUST tried to cheat over a little
and fortunately I got the block."
Tarpley, meanwhile, was leading
the effort that gave the Wolverines a
45-27 rebounding edge. He grabbed 16
boards to equal his career high, and
scored 18 points to lead all scorers.

called Michigan's "two tackles," to

Marble. The three used fierce elbow
grease and just plain elbows to
remove the polish from Marble's
early season success. The 6-7 Flint
native finished with two-of-nine
shooting from the floor and only seven
points, less than half his Big Ten
"He took a beating out there," said
Raveling. "I'm not saying anything
derogatory about Michigan, but it's a
fact. They really bumped and
knocked him around."

guards shot a combined 32 percent, as

A 21-year-old Ypsilanti man was
stabbed in the alleyway between
Dooley's and Burger King on
Maynard St. at 1:30 a.m. Friday, Ann
Arbor Police said.
The victim, thought by police to be a
current or former football player for
Eastern Michigan University, was
admitted to University hospital with
a "graze wound" in his abdomen. He
was in stable condition Saturday, said
Ann Arbor Police Lt. Gary Kistka.
THE SUSPECT, a 20-year-old man,
was apprehended in The Nectarine
Ballroom on Liberty St. within a half-
hour of the incident. He was arrested
but not charged. The police do not
know if they will press charges and
have been unable to establish a
motive for the incident, Kistka said.
The police were initially called to
the scene for a shooting.
frce Charlie s
to charge cover
By AMY D. GOLDSTEIN
Skyrocketing insurance rates have
caused one local bar to impose a cover
charge. Good Time Charlie's Village
Bar and Grill began charging one
dollar to their over-21 patrons, and
two dollars to their under-21
customers last week.
"Our costs went up about 1,000
pecent last year," said Rick Buhr, co-
owner and general manager of
Charlie's. Due to the rising rates,
Charlie's presently pays $36,000 per
year for liquor liability insurance, and
Buhr expects this number to double in
the coming year.
THE "DRAM-Shop" law, covering
Michigan civil liquor liability, has
been on the books since 1937. "What
caused the current controversy over it
is because the insurance companies
have raised their rates so rapidly,"
said Ken Wasniac of the Michigan
Liquor Control Commission. "The
amount of settlements have gone up,
and (the insurance companies) have
been losing money on the premiums."
However, Brian Kuehn, account
manager for Dobson-McOmber, an
insurance company in Ann Arbor,
said rates are rising so rapidly as
result of the increasing number of
lawsuits in which bar owners have
been held liable.
The problem is more complex than
insurance costs. Availability of liquor
liability insurance is limited, and
those companies that do offer such in-
surance are sometimes not finan-
cially stable. "Those companies that
are less stable are usually more
liberal with their limit (of coverage)
than the more stable companies,"
said Kuehn. Many of thecompanies
that have offered liquor liability in-
surance in the past have gone
"WE'RE ALMOST to the point
where bar owners are either paying
the bare minimum or dropping their
insurance. The attitude is 'come and
get me.' Eventually, if they keep
pushing (the rates) up, very few will
buy it, or they will pass it on to their
customers," said Kuehn.
Some bars are forced to buy the in-
surance at any price. "National
chains cannot afford to take a chance
with an uninsured claim. When you hit
a certain size, you have to buy in-
surance at any price. Smaller
operations can take a chance. They
can pull in their assets, so there's
nothing to collect, and just declare
bankruptcy," said Kuehn.
Many bars in Michigan, as much as
50 percent, have dropped their in-
surance. "If insurance costs more
than profits, the only way to get
profits is to drop the insurance,"
Kuehn said. Rather than close or drop
insurance several bars have opted to
pass the costs on to their customers:
THIS is what Charlie's has done.
Because it is a college bar, insurance
rates are high, and limits on the
coverage are low. However, the
owners do not feel they can afford to
drop their insurance. "We're collec-
table," said Buhr, "We have the
