BLUE'S TOUGH SCHEDULE CONTINUES
By ROB LEVINE
The women's basketball team
tips off the second half of the Big
Ten season this weekend with
games at Crisler Arena against
Indiana (tonight, 6 p.m.) and Ohio
State (Sunday, 2 p.m.).
Michigan's only Big Ten win
this season was a 65-63 triumph
over Indiana in January.
Wolverine assistant coach Debbie
Norman anticipates a physical
game from the Hoosiers. "We
expect a close, tight game and
expect them to go inside to their
three big guns - Karna Abram,
Rosie Carlton, and Cindy

The Buckeyes are on track to
win the Big Ten Title and are not
looking past Michigan. "They're
going to definitely be out to play
hard because next week they go to
Iowa, who's in second place in the
Big 10," said Norman. "They're

Even though the Wolverines
are mired in last place in the
conference, the team has shown
sparks of potential this season.
"We've had some better games,
but unfortunately they don't show
up in the win column," said
Norman. "We had a very good
game against Illinois.
"We played very aggressively
against Iowa, but their experience
and depth took over in the end."

Michigan head coach Dale Bahr's
biggest concern coming into this
season was that his inexperienced
wrestling squad would go through
periods of inconsistency. Lately
however, the fortunes of the
Wolverine wrestlers have been very
consistent - consistently bad.
The wrestlers, worn down both
physically and psychologically,
reached a low point in the season
last Saturday when they were
trounced by Penn State, the
nation's number one squad. The
loss culminated a week of grief and
concern over wrestler Mike
Murdoch, who remains in critical
condition following an auto
accident the previous week.
The Wolverines (6-4-1), still
ranked 16th in the country despite
numerous injuries, hope to start
improving their condition this
weekend, with matches at Crisler
Arena against Minnesota tonight
and Iowa State on Sunday.
MINNESOTA, under new
coach J. Robinson, is another team
that has experienced inconsistency
this season. Despite some early
losses, the Gophers (7-7,0-3) have
wrestled well lately.
"The Gophers struggled early in
the season, but now it looks like
they've turned it around. We're
concerned because they're going to
have all their aces in the lineup,
while we've still got some holes,"
said Bahr. "If we start off well in
the opening matches, we should be
able to beat them. - It should be an
excellent match that goes right
down to the wire."
Minnesota is led by Tim
Manning (26-9) at 142 pounds.,
Dave Dean (25-8-2) at 190, and Rod
Sandee (22-5-2) at 167. Manning
and Dean are both ranked seventh
nationally in their weight divisions.
Michigan's prospects appear
much dimmer against Iowa St. The
Cyclones are ranked third in the
country with a 10-1 record and are
favored to give the Wolverines their
1002 PONTIAC TR.
second lopsided defeat in as many
Iowa St. is loaded with
candidates for NCAA
championships. Tim Krieger (17-
0) is ranked first in the nation at
150 pounds, Kevin Jackson (20-1)
second at 167, and Bill Kelly (16-2-
2) fifth at 126.
"Iowa St. - is a traditionally
strong team. This year they have
exceptional talent," said Bahr.
"They're very similar to Penn State,
older and well balanced. They'll be
a very difficult match."
The Wolverines were encouraged
this week by the news that their top
wrestler, Doug Wyland a 118
pounder, will soon return to action
following a month long bout with
mononucleosis. Another piece of
good news is that Tony Latora,
who injured his knee last week,
will wrestle this weekend. Bahr
knows that the only thing his team
can do is be patient. "We're
weathering some low points right
now. We've got to keep a positive
attitude and keep working hard. If
we can get everyone healthy by
March, I think we can really make a
strong run for the runner-up spot in
the Big Ten."
SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) - A
bill introduced in the Illinois Senate
would change state law to allow the
Chicago Cubs to play night
baseball at Wrigley Field, the only
major-league stadium without
The bill, introduced by Sen.
Doris Karpiel, R-Roselle, would
delete a portion of the Illinois
Environmental Protection Act that
applies night noise emission
regulations to professional baseball,
football and soccer games.
The existing law has effectively
barred the Cubs from playing night
games because Wrigley Field is in a
heavily populated residential area.
"WE HAVE Wrigley Field,
which is a beautiful, historic place
that the Cubs want to stay in, but
they are in a bind," Karpiel said
yesterday. "They're not going to be
able to playspostseason games there
"Something has to be done to
keep them there or they will have
to leave Wrigley," Karpiel said.
In addition to the state law, there
is a Chicago city ordinance that
bans night games.
Baseball Commissioner Peter
Ueberroth has said any postseason
games the Cubs appear in would
have to be played at night because
