Coming off a big third-period win the night before,
you might have thought the Wolverines had licked
their third-period problem. You thought wrong.
Up 6-4 after two periods, the Wolverines floundered
ith the two-goal lead and went on to lose 8-6.
"We worked hard but we didn't outwork them like
last night," said Michigan head coach Red Berenson.
"We didn't score when we had to. We made defensive
mistakes. .
"YOU CAN'T give up eight goals a game and
expect to score that many against a good goalkeeper.
We're not a team that can score eight goals a game."
The Wolverines wasted a hat trick by Brad
McCaughey and also a chance to sweep a series for the
first time since December 13-14, 1985, against Miami.
The Broncos scored four unanswered goals in the
third period, the winner coming off the stick of Wayne
Gagne while the Broncos were trying to kill off a five-
minute major to Jim Culhane.
"The key to the whole game," said Bronco head
coach Bill Wilkinson, "was the killing off of that five-
minute major. We even ended up scoring the winning
goal on it."
SAID GAGNE about his game-winning goal:
"We didn't get a lot of breaks tonight. Finally, I got a
two-on-one and I didn't know whether I should pass or
shoot. But then the goalie came out and he was spread-
eagled. I just put it in."
For a while it looked like the Wolverines were
taking up where they left off Saturday night.
With Bronco Dave Lobdell off for interference,
McCaughey picked up a loose puck at the blue line,
skated in uncontested and fired a wrist shot that beat
Bronco goaltender Bill Horn to the glove side. The goal
was McCaughey's seventh on the season and gave the
Wolverines a 1-0 lead at 5:52 of the first period.

irs blow
The score remained that way until 19:19 of the first.
With the teams skating at four on four, Gagne fired a
slapshot that Ron Hoover managed to tip in. The assist
for Gagne extended his scoring streak to 25 games,
dating back to February of last season.
JUST 27 SECONDS later, with a mad scramble
in front of the net, Culhane scored his fifth goal of the
season, to give the Broncos a 2-1 lead at the end of
one.
Whatever Berenson said in the lockerroom during
the first intermission worked. The Wolverines scored
three goals in the opening 2:26 of the second period.
On the first of the three, defenseman Randy Kwong
intercepted a pass, crossed the blue line and fed the
puck over to McCaughey. McCaughey barely beat
Horn with a wrist shot for his second goal. The goal
came 44 seconds into the period.
Just 1:06 later, Myles O'Connor picked up a loose
puck in his own zone. He skated the length of the ice
and fired a slapper between Horn's pads for his seventh
goal of the season.
Billy Powers scored the next Wolverine goal. He
outhustled and outmuscled Rob Bryden for the puck
deep in the Bronco zone and snuck a wrist shot past
Horn. The goal gave the Wolverines a 4-2 lead.
With the Broncos skating five on three, Gagne fired
a shot from the point that Bryden tipped in. It was his
13th goal and 11th power-play goal of the season.
McCaughey countered that with his third goal of the
game, and the Wolverines' first hat trick of the year. It
was McCaughey's third career hat trick and the goal put
Michigan up 5-3.
After Bronco right-winger Henry Fung made it a
one-goal game, Gagne made a costly defensive blunder.
He inadvertantly knocked the puck into his own net
while attempting to clear his own zone. The goal was
credited to Bruce McNab at 18:41 of the second.

'M' rests'
By PHIL NUSSEL
Ann Arbor returned to normal yesterday in the
aftermath of Saturday's monumental 26-24 win
at Ohio State, which put Michigan into the Rose
Bowl for the first time since the 1982 season.
Michigan will meet Pac Ten champ Arizona
State, which lost its final game to Arizona, 34-
17.
The Wolverines now get a much-deserved
week off for Thanksgiving, but will go hyack to
work next Monday in preparation for the trip to
Hawaii to meet the University of Hawaii
Rainbows.
"I'M NOT EVEN thinking about that
now," said quarterback Jim Harbaugh, who
backed up his "guaranteed" victory with a 19-29,
261-yard performance. "I just want to think about
how good this win feels and how great it is to
see my best friends happy and the coaches feeling
so good and seeing my parents and family happy.
I just want to concentrate on that for a couple of
days."
Head coach Bo Schembechler was all smiles
yesterday on his weekly television show as he
reflected on his 166th win at Michigan, a mark

easy in bei
which made him the winningest coach in
Wolverine football history.
"It was a heck of a game and I'm pleased that
we won it," he said after the game. "And I am
particularly happy because it will be the first
time for any of these players to go to the Rose
Bowl.
For more in-depth coverage of
Saturday's win at Ohio State, see the
Daily sports extra issue, which came
out yesterday. Extra copies are still
available at the Daily on 420 Maynard
Street.
"This is one of the finest squads I've ever
had."
JAMIE MORRIS had the best day of his
three-year career with 210 yards on 29 carries -
150 of those yards were in the second half.
"That's the best I've seen him play,"
Schembechler said. "In the second half, our
offensive line did a terrific job in opening hole's
for Jamie Morris.
"But Morris did a great job. When do you
remember any back getting more than 200 yards

of Roses
against Ohio State?"
"I visualized that this would be the game,"
Morris said. "I wanted to make it all come today.
I reached down inside me."
It was pure agony on the Ohio State end of
the field after kicker Matt Frantz missed a 45-yard
field goal attempt with a minute left. The ball
went just to the left. -
"It was a tough decision, but you have to take
that chance," OSU head coach Earle Bruce said.
The 8th-year Buckeye coach must now take his
9-3 team to the Cotton Bowl in Dallas.
"I thought it was going to be good," a tearful
Frantz said. "I just hooked it a' little to the left.
(Bruce) asked me if I could do it and I said yes."
Blue Bater
- Harbaugh, Andy Moeller, and other fifth-year
seniors collected money from the team to make a
plaque for Schembechler's new Michigan
coaching victory record. They had it ready for the
Minnesota game, but since the Wolverines lost,
it had to be changed for Ohio State - adding
more cost to the $200 item.

''meets Memphis
in NIT 2nd round

By JEFF RUSH
Think Michigan's basketball
team is in a bind trying to
replace the starting frontline of
Roy Tarpley, Richard Rellford
and Butch Wade? Check out
Memphis State.
There's much wrong with the
Tigers, who are trying to replace
three starters from last year's 28-
6 squad that finished second in
the Metro Conference to NCAA
tournament champion Louis-
ville.
Big men William Bedford
(17.3 points per game, 8.5
rebounds per game) and
Baskerville Holmes (14.3 ppg,
7.3 rpg) are gone, as well as
four-year starting guard Andre
Turner (13.9 ppg and 7.7 assists
per game).
DANA KIRK is gone, too.
Memphis State fired the former
head coach in September, and
these days he's on the receiving
end of an 11-count indictment
for actions such as mail fraud
and tax evasion.
The tale of the Tigers only
gets longer. The basketball
team, like the Tiger football
team, is on NCAA probation for
recruiting violations, and is

banned from postseason action.
And over the summer, the
team's best returning player
announced he was leaving
Memphis State for the third
time. He later announced his
"return" for the third time.
So what's right?
FOR STARTERS, the
team is in the quarterfinals of the
NIT, set to play tonight in its
own arena against the Michigan
Wolverines, who came away
victors in a wild and wooly
game (115-107) against Bradley.
The unranked Tigers beat
20th-ranked Cleveland State 70-
66 Saturday night at: Memphis
to reach the round of eight.
Returning starter Vincent
Askew, a 6-5 junior swingman
and the owner of the hat trick of
announcements on his personal
location, scored 20 points and
had 11 rebounds to lead the
Tigers. Askew averaged 10.9
ppg and 6.7 rpg last season.
The other returning Memphis
State starter is 6-3 junior guard
Dwight Boyd, who averaged just
under 10 ppg last year.

Just when it's starting to get fun, the party's
almost over.
The University of Michigan volleyball team
completed their most successful weekend of the
year Saturday night by downing Wisconsin after
a hard-fought victory over Northwestern the night
before.
In fact, it was the most successful weekend in
many years. The Big Ten sweep was the first that
any of Michigan's players have ever experienced.
FRIDAY NIGHT, Northwestern gave the
Wolverines (3-13 in the Big Ten) a scare before
they succumbed to Coach Joyce Davis' squad for
the second time this year, 15-5, 16-14, 7-15, 9-
15, 15-11. "In the third game, we had an-
opportunity to win, and we let it slip," said
Davis. "In the fourth game, we were stunned by

weekend sweep

what happened in the third."
In the fifth game, though, Michigan got it.
back together to take the match. Coach Davis
said the Wolverines were helped by a "definite
psychological edge," citing the Wildcats
miserable record in five-game matches. "It had to
be in the back of their minds," she said.
After the victory, a sweep was in the front of
Michigan's minds, and the historic sweep was
exactly what they got.
Wisconsin jumped on top quickly the next
night, but the Wolverines showed new-found
consistency and persistency by coming back to
win, 11-15, 16-14, 15-11, 15-6. "We had no
long runs of poor play," said Davis, such as had
plagued them against Michigan State and others.
"There were letdowns, but no major
breakdowns."
"All the credit has to go to Michigan," said

Badgers' coach Steve Lowe. "They did an
excellent job serving and their passing is much
improved."
The Wolverines are finally gelling after an
influx of new players and a new coach. The
sweep confirmed Michigan's improvement.
"We've pulled together," said junior co-captain
Lisa Vahi. "Things can only get better."
Unfortunately, however, just as the team is
maturing, there are only three remaining
matches, at home against Eastern Michigan, and
then away at Purdue and Big Ten champ Illinois.
Obviously, the major significance of the past
weekend will be for the future of the program.
The Wolverines lose only one senior, middle
hitter Jayne Hickman, who was honored before
her final match Saturday.
"It's like we're putting money in the bank,"
says Davis. "We'll withdraw it next year."

Tankers sink Badg

The men's swimming team
powered their way to a 60-53
trouncing of the floundering
Wisconsin Badgers at Matt Mann'
Pool Saturday.
The closeness of the final score
was no indication of how badly
Michigan trounced the Badgers in
winning 11 of 13 events since head
coach Jon Urbanchek entered
exhibition swimmers in the last
four events.
Leading the onslaught for the
Wolverines was triple winner and
R+L L .A .. -

turned in swift finishes to surpass
the field.
Co-captain Joe Parker, a 160-
pound senior, captured two events
and was right behind Kerska in the
100 Free. Parker edged out the field
with a quick 21.5 in the 50 Free
and provided a powerful lead-off
swim in the victorious 400 Free
Relay of Mike Creaser, Greg
Varner, and Brent Lang.
