Michigan (18-11 overall, 9-8 Big

them. "I don't think it will be
hard because we've got a couple
days to practice before we play
Purdue," he said. "Our shots will
be falling on Saturday."
Purdue (24-3, 15-2) hopes a
milestone will fall tomorrow. A
victory would give the
Boilermakers their first outright
Big Ten championship since
1969. It would also seal up a No.

Motivation should not be a
problem. The women's gymnastics
team knows what it must
accomplish when it hosts Eastern
Michigan at 7 p.m. Friday and Kent
State at 1 p.m. Sunday.
The prospect of facing Mid-
American Conference schools is
usually a welcome break from
rugged Big Ten competition, but in
order to stay in the chase for an
NCAA Regional berth, the team
must bump its performance up a

both perform all-around against
Eastern Michigan, but could be
limited to three events on Sunday,
depending on their health.
Williams has been bothered by a
bad shoulder and Klepak has an
ankle problem. If they do perform
all-around against Kent State,
Kempthorn hinted that their
routines might be "watered down"
to reduce strain.
FRESHMEN Jeffries and Jeni
Hescott will also be counted on for
strong efforts. Jeffries, from
Bethesda, Md., has worked all-
around every meet this season.
Hescott, a native of Holland, Mi.,
has been a consistent performer in

Senior guard Antoine Joubert looks for help in Wednesday's loss to
Illinois. Joubert and fellow senior Garde Thompson will be playing their
last regular-season game at Crisler Arena.
Bruising center Melvin McCants
(12.0 points per game) and
forwards Todd Mitchell (16.1 ppg)
and Doug Lee (10.1 ppg) are
tough under the boards, while
guards Troy Lewis (19.1 ppg) and
Everette Stephens (11.8 ppg) can
light it up from long-range.
The Boilermakers have won
eight in row, including a 69-59
win at Michigan State Wednesday
night which assured them of at
least a tie for the Big Ten crown.
Indiana (13-4 Big Ten) trails the
leader by one game. The Hoosiers
need a win over Ohio State
tomorrow, and a Purdue loss, to
share the title.
Ohio State, with an upset at
Bloomington, could do serious
damage to Michigan's tournament
hopes. The Wolverines and
Buckeyes are tied for fifth place in
the Big Ten at 9-8, and both are
borderline candidates for an NCAA
bid. If one wins tomorrow and the
other loses, the loser could likely
be left out of the 64-team field.
