The men's swimming team puts its undefeated
record on the line this Saturday in their final home
dual meet of the season against Big Ten rival Ohio
State (2:00 p.m., Matt Mann Pool).
Making their final home meet appearance will be
seniors Dave Kerska and Joe Parker. In addition to
their many individual accomplishments, the co-
captains have helped Michigan (currently No. 8 in the
nation) become a national power. Last year, they
played an important part in Michigan's first Big Ten
championship in 25 years.
"They have taken advantage of every opportunity
given them," said head coach Jon Urbanchek. "As
freshmen, they were able to pick up a lot of good
traits from the outgoing seniors. They worked out
every summer and now it is really paying off for
them."
The meet itself should not be that close due to
Michigan's depth, according to Urbanchek. However,
both Parker and Kerska will have tough competition
in the 100-yard freestyle, where Buckeye Mark
Birnbirch has swam times equal to both Wolverine
seniors. In addition, Ohio State's distance swimmer
Brain McKay, a transfer from Texas, should challenge
Michigan's Mats Nigren, Bjorn Warland, and Bill
Kopas in the 1650- and 500-freestyles.
The meet will feature some very fast times as both
teams have begun to rest for Big Ten meet in three
weeks. Urbanchek also said the format of the meet
has been changed to give the swimmers a final chance
to compete in some of the shorter and quicker events
before Big Tens.
Looking back over his four years, Parker said, "It
has been the most positive experience of my college
career."
Track teams set for tourneys
The women's indoor track team will host the
Wolverine Open tomorrow in preparation for the Big
Ten Championships to be held in Ann Arbor later

this month. The men's team will travel to Ypsilanti
for this weekend's Central Collegiate
Championships.
The Wolverine men are well rested from last
week's meet at Michigan State, and hope to defend
their back-to-back CC crowns. "The Spartan Relays
were pretty low-key for us," said Michigan coach Jack
Harvey. "We left most of the distance and field event
people home to rest them for the Central
Collegiates."
Senior Chris Brewster, a two-time Central
Collegiate "Outstanding Athlete"-award recipient and
1985 cross-country All-American, has already*
qualified for the NCAA championships for the two-
mile run (8:40.06). He leads a trio of Michigan
runners, inclw!.; A e Schmidt and Joe Scherer, who
should get some valuable points in the distance
events for the Wolverines.
In the field events, 1986 CC Indoor triple-jump
champion Butch Starmack looks to retain his title.
Coach Harvey has also been pleased with the
improving performances of the sprinters, hurdlers and
mid-distance runners. "Everything in East Lansing
was pretty encouraging," he said. "Omar Davidsonis
running very well, and Allen Jefferson and Phil Webb
have been pleasant surprises."
Davidson is the current CC Indoor 440-yard
champion, while Webb runs the hurdles and Jefferson
specializes in short dashes.
The Wolverine women are looking at tomorrow's
meet as "a warmup for the conference meet,"
according to head coach James Henry.
Sonya Payne has been a premier performer with
the shot-put this season, setting a new Michigan
record with a heave of 49' 9" earlier this season.
The Wolverine Open, featuring Big Ten
powerhouses Indiana and Illinois, will take place
tomorrow in the Track and Tennis Building.

The past several weeks have
been less than kind to the
Michigan wrestling squad.
Besides suffering injuries to
almost half of its starting
lineup, the Wolverines were
forced to face two of the
country's top teams within a
week. The combined score of
those battles saw Penn State and
Iowa State rout the patchwork
Michigan squad, 79-8.
Wrestling fans should not
despair, however. The lightnat
the end of the tunnel may be
near.' Things just may be
looking brighter for the
Michigan wrestlers... finally.
The Wolverines did manage
to beat Minnesota last week for
its second Big Ten win in a row
(7-8-1 overall, 4-2-1 conference).
They could notch two more
victories this weekend as they
face Notre Dame tonight at

Crisler Arena and travel to
Central Michigan on Sunday.
Most importantly, a number of
key wrestlers are expected to
return from injuries and begin
preparation for the Big Ten
championships March 6-7.
NOTRE DAME and
Central Michigan do not appear
to provide the powerful competi-
tion that the Wolverines have
faced in recent weeks. The Irish,
coached by Fran McCann, are 1-
8 on the season and are currently
in the midst of a seven-match
losing streak.
Like Michigan, Notre Dame a
young team that has faced a
number of injuries this season.
They are led by four sophomores
who were freshman All-
Americans last year. Jerry
Durso, their captain at 134
pounds, is 25-4 this season after
winning a school-record 38
matches last year.

Central Michigan, coached by
Chick Sherwood, is 6-5-1
overall and 3-2 in the Mid-
American Conference. The
Chippewas have a number of
strong wrestlers returning from a
team that won the MAC last
season. Their top wrestler is
177-pound Carlton Kincade with
a 28-6 record.
"Central Michigan should be
a very competitive match and
Notre Dame is a fine team now
in a rebuilding -year," said
Michigan head coach Dale Bahr.
"It's certainly going to be a
break in the schedule for us,
especially after wrestling Iowa
State and Penn State."
Michigan's two top wrestlers,
Doug Wyland at 126 pounds and
John Fisher at 134, are both
expected to wrestle this weekend,
despite being at less than 100
percent physically. Wyland (21-
3) is still recovering from mono,

MINNEAPOLIS (AP)- Ken
Norman scored 26 points and Steve
Bardo added a career-high 16 and the
two sparked an 11-1 run to start the
second half last night to lead 11th-
ranked Illinois to a 79-67 Big Ten
basketball victory over Minnesota.
Illinois, 19-5 overall and 9-3 in
the conference after its fifth straight
victory, sent the Gophers, 9-12 and

2-9, to their ninth straight loss.
The second half started with
Minnesota's Willie Burton
bouncing a pass off teammate Ray
Gaffney and into the hands of
Illinois' Tony Wysinger, who drove
the length of the court for a layup.
On the Gophers' next possession,
Bardo stole the ball from Terrence
Woods and drove for a layup.

Pistons club Cleveland

RICHFIELD, Ohio (AP) -
Adrian Dantley scored 25 points,
including two free throws that
snapped a 109-109 tie with 34
seconds to play last night, as the
D6troit Pistons defeated the
Cleveland Cavaliers 113-109 and
moved into a first-place tie with the
Atlanta Hawks in the NBA's
Central Division.
Detroit led by 13 points early in
the fourth period but the Cavaliers
lied it 107-107 when rookie center
Brad Daugherty hit a short hook
shot with 1:20 remaining.
Detroit's Bill Laimbeer and
Cleveland's Ron Harper exchanged
jump shots before Dantley hit the

foul shots that put Detroit ahead for
good.
Sidney Green made one-of-two
free throws with 21 seconds to go
and Harper and Mark Price missed
three-point shots for Cleveland
before Laimbeer added a free throw
with four seconds left.
Isiah Thomas led the Pistons
with 27 points.
