One Wolverine went to the showers early. One
o Wolverine was first star. And one Wolverine hockey
coach was very happy to put two points in the stand-
ings after an intense 6-4 Michigan victory over bitter
rival, league-leading Michigan State Saturday night.
A loud crowd of 8,102, a majority of which had
blue, not green loyalties, rocked Yost Ice Arena.
Michigan gave a complete efffort Saturday to gain a
split after suffering a tough 6-3 defeat Friday night.
"Our kids played with a lot of heart and hustle for
all three periods," said Michigan head coach Red
Berenson after Saturday's win. "It wasn't pretty but we
stuck to our game plan, made our chances count and
Igot a few timely goals."
MICHIGAN was about to take a 2-1 lead into the
locker room at the end of Saturday's first period when
Michigan State's Jeff Harding took offense to a check
thrown by Michigan defenseman Alex Roberts on
State's Bobby Reynolds. Harding charged Roberts and
instigated the ensuing brawl, which resulted in
roughing penalties for eight players and game disquali-
fications for both Harding and Roberts.
"Harding came over to push me around, trying to
intimidate me," said Roberts. "The two of us started
wrestling, and it just escalated into a fist-fight.
"The Spartans feel that they can get away with
cheap stuff just because they're Michigan State, and in
the NCAA (Tournament) almost every year. But over
the past year and a half we've gained more confidence.
We're more experienced and know we can beat them.
We won't back down from them. You won't see us get
intimidated by State anymore."
With all those bodies in the penalty box to start the
second period, both sides skated three-on-three for the
first four minutes. A traditionally quick team with
solid defense, State could have held an advantage. But
Michigan kept pace and continued hitting, while
avoiding penalties which might have let the Spartans
back in the game.
BRAD McCAUGHEY'S second goal of the
game, at 8:18 of the second period, gave the
Wolverines a commanding 5-2 lead. The senior winger
earlier added an assist to earn the game's first star.
now has seven points over the past four
"We didn't let up (Saturday)", said McCaughey, an
assistant captain. "After the fight, Coach told us to
keep hitting hard and just stay away from them after
the play is whistled dead. We stayed with our game
plan, got good goaltending from (Warren) Sharples, and
when we had the chance to score, we made good shots."
On Friday night, Michigan did not play at peak
level for the entire game. Michigan State capitalized on
three of five power-play opportunities.
After taking a 3-2 lead in the first, Michigan
allowed Spartan forward Kerry Russell to walk in and
slide the puck past Wolverine goaltender Glen Neary
with less than three minutes expired in the second
State defenseman Brad Hamilton scored the game-
winner in heartbreak fashion, as he beat a screened
Neary from the point on the power play with 18
seconds left in the second period.
"ON THE power plays, State had Harding (6-3,
215 pounds) standing in the slot," said Neary. "With
his big body and our big defensemen trying to clear
him out of the crease blocking my vision, it was tough
to see the puck. I didn't see Hamilton's shot until it
was three feet away from me. He was definitely a big
factor in the game."
Early in the second period, the Michigan defense
suffered a serious loss when junior Myles O'Connor,
who Berenson calls his "best defenseman," slid hard
into the boards behind the Michigan State net and in-
jured his rotator cuff. O'Connor missed Saturday's
game, and his future status is questionable.
With the split against State, Michigan remains tied
for third place in the Central Collegiate Hockey Asso-
ciation with 12 points, five points behind the league-
Overall, Wolverine captain Todd Brost was satisfied
with the weekend split. "We knew we had to play 60
minutes to beat State on Saturday," Brost said. "Friday
our play kind of staggered as the game went on, but
everyone showed up on Saturday, for the whole game.
We're learning how to win."

GRANT EARNS PRESEASON HOOP KUDOS:
'Knight steals the show
By SCOTT SHAFFER
Special to the Daily
CHICAGO - You can make
Bob Knight show up, but you can't
force him to be pleasant.
That was the lesson learned at the
Big Ten basketball coaches' press
conference in Chicago yesterday.
Knight, the head coach of the
national champion Indiana Hoosiers,
showed up for the first time since
1983 after a rule was passed last year
invoking automatic one-game
suspensions for no-show coaches.
Unlike the other nine coaches,
Knight did not talk about his team's
prospects for the season. Instead he
used his time as a chance to attack
Big Ten commissioner Wayne Duke
and the news media in general for
staging what he considered to be a
waste of time anct money. "If my
.presence here is news, there can't be
much happening here that's worth a
damn," said Knight.
Besides hearing the coaches
speak, the reporters voted on the
preseason All-Big Ten team.
Michigan guard Gary Grant was
voted preseason player bf the year by
a wide margin. Joining Grant on the
first team were Purdue's Troy Lewis
and Todd Mitchell (second in player-
of-the-year voting), Indiana's Dean
Garrett and Iowa's Roy Marble.
Michigan's Glen Rice was named to
the second team, while teammate
Terry Mills was runner-up t o
Illinois' Ken Battle in the voting for
newcomer of the year.
Much of the coaches'
conversation centered on h e
possibility of the Big Ten adopting a
7 post-season playoff tournament for

school. It's the
Armed Forces Health
the 1988-89 season. The Big Ten is
the only major conference in the
nation that doesn't have one. Most
of the coaches endorsed the
tournmaent as long as the Big Ten
schedule is reduced from 18 to 14
games. While some coaches
expressed mixed feelings, the general
sentiment was that the benefits of
such a playoff would outweigh the
"I'm for a tournament because all
schools can use the extra $500,000
or more that it would generate," said
Illinois head coach Lou Henson.
Other benefits mentioned by the
coaches were the added exposure for
the teams and the extra excitement
for both players and fans.
The only coach who strongly
criticized the proposed tournament
was (surprise!) Knight, who claimed
that his players felt like they would
be exploited for the sake of earning
extra money for the school.
Basketball commentator Dick
Vitale graced the press conference
with his presence. Vitale, who
picked Michigan as the top team in
the nation, kidded Wolverine coach
Bill Frieder for complaining that his
team wasn't as good Vitale thinks.
As for the upcoming season, the
consensus seemed to be that Indiana,
Iowa and Purdue would vie for the
Big Ten championship with
Michigan and Illinois being talented
but lacking in experience.
