Kelli Bert ran third.
HAVING PUT the Big Ten

now looking to the NCAA

"If we're able to make up the

last year's Big Ten champions,

Wolverines rolled to a 65-30 win.

Man sought in Bias' death surrenders
UPPER MARLBORO, Md.
(AP) - Kenneth Mark Fobbs, who
was sought in connection with the
Len Bias death investigation,
surrendered Monday to the Prince
George's County sheriff.
Fobbs, 25, was charged with
perjury in a sealed indictment
returned last Thursday by the grand
jury investigating the June 19
cocaine-induced death of the
University of Maryland All-

F OBBS was arrested at about
10:30 a.m. by Sheriff James Aliusu
at the sheriff's office.
Sheriff's department spokesman
Lt. Col. Art DiGennaro said Aliusu
and Fobbs' lawyer, Joseph DePaul,
had been talking since Friday to
arrange Fobbs' surrender.
"The lawyer called the sheriff
Friday. They talked again Saturday
and decided to bring him in
Monday," DiGennaro said, adding
that the lawyer was concerned about
the bond and the way Fobbs would
be treated upon arrest.
DiGENNARO said the
sheriff's deputies had been seeking
Fobbs since Thursday when the
indictment was issued.
DePaul said Fobbs heard that he
had been indicted through the local
news media and sought DePaul to
represent him. Both television and
newspaper reporters were saying
Thursday that Fobbs was the
subject of the secret indictment.
DePaul said arraignment
originally scheduled for Friday
would be waived and he would
proceed with preparing motions. He
said he did not expect a trial until at
FOBBS was released on his
own recognizance shortly after
being arrested. The maximun
penalty for a perjury conviction is
10 years in prison.
The Washington, D.C. resident
was the roommate of Brian Lee
Tribble, who is accused of
supplying the cocaine that killed
Fobbs testified twice before the
grand jury that has been gathering
information on the death since July.
L ast year at this time the Michigan hockey team
had a respectable 4-4 record that included victories
over Bowling Green and Michigan State. But as time
wore on the Wolverines wore out . They dropped their
last 10 games.
This year Michigan was supposed to be vastly
improved. And an impressive opener against
Bowling Green really opened the eyes of Michigan
fans. But the Wolverines have not lived up to their
THEY ARE now 2-6 including two losses to the
expected league doormat Miami Redskins. They have
also lost 11 road games in a row - their last six last
year and five this year.
The team's last two losses occurred over the
weekend, 5-2 and 13-3 to Illinois-Chicago. They were
sickening losses. In the first game the team couldn't
finish things off in the Flames zone. Michigan took
33 shots at goalie Jim Hickey and couldn't put more
than two past him.
But the worst thing the Wolverines did Friday
night was eat after the game.
THAT IS if the food is indeed what made one-
third of the team sick. Nobody could quite put their
finger on the problem. Head coach Red Berenson and
his staff pointed to the meal they ate Friday night at
the Hyde Park Hilton as the probable culprit.
Whether it was the chicken or the vegetables
didn't matter. It was something that couldn't be
helped, and the Flames came away with two easy
points and a shortage of Pepto Bismol.
Still, twenty-four conference games remain for the
Wolverines, whether the team is healthy or not.
Early season action around the CCHA indicates that
Red Berenson's eafly season goal of a fourth-place
finish is not out ofileach.
FOUR WEEKS into the season the CCHA
standings seem to predict a dogfight for post-season
position. All the teams currently behind first and
second place Michigan State and Bowling Green will
fight it out for the third and fourth spots (home ice
"I still say Michigan is my darkhorse in the
CCHA," said Bowling Green head coach Jerry York.
"I said so at the start of the season."
"I don't think there is anyone we've played that I
honestly don't think we are capable of beating," said
Berenson. (After Michigan State and Bowling Green)
everyone else is in a fight for the final seven
positions in the league.""
MIAMI has been the league's biggest surprise so
far. It has a 3-5 record despite four successive losses
to Michigan State and Bowling Green.
"Our record (5-1, 7-1 overall) is a little deceiving,"
said Bowling Green head coach Jerry York. "We
dodged a couple of bullets at Miami last weekend and
besides Lake Superior we really haven't been running
on all eight cylinders."
Bowling Green and Michigan State are clearly the
CCHA's best. Both have won the last two national
championships and have brought the CCHA national
prominence. Now the conference's lower echelon
teams are getting better.
"That's what is great about the league teams like
us, Miami, and Michigan," said Illinois-Chicago head
coach Val Belmonte. "They keep on improving and
working hard and making the league great. It's not
just a two-team league."
"A team can move from sixth to third in a
weekend if a team sweeps," said Michigan State
assistant coach Terry Christensen.
That's what keeps the Wolverines alive. The
possibility of moving up in a balanced league.
