SPOiR TS OF THE AL Y:

By ADAM SCHRAGER
When most sports teams are do-
ing poorly, they like to return home
to the friendly confines of their re-
spective stadiums. But in this week-
end's home-and-home hockey series
between Michigan and Western
Michigan, the question looming is
whether or not the home ice is an
advantage.
The Wolverines will be looking
to better their 2-2 home record
tonight, while the two teams will
travel to Kalamazoo tomorrow
night.
While Michigan may not have
enjoyed much success at home, the
Broncos can boast of even less. So
far this season, Western has won
only two of five games in Lawson
Arena, while sporting a 5-1 record
on the road.
CONSIDERING that both
teams are young and relatively
inexperienced, this comes as a
surprise. The traditional philosophy
is that younger teams play better in
front of favorable crowds, but this
has not been the case for either of
these two squads.
The Wolverines and.Broncos have
32 of their 48 players in either their
first or second year of playing expe-
rience combined.
"With all the young players on
this squad, I go into every series ex-
pecting to gain a lot of gray hairs,"
said Western head coach Bill
Wilkinson. "I do believe, though,
that their enthusiasm outweighs
their inexperience."
This enthusiasm has helped the
Broncos come back from large,
seemingly insurmountable deficits.
Last weekend against Lake Superior,
Western trailed by two goals with
under four minutes to play and
eventually won the game in over-
time. The previous weekend, against
nationally-ranked St. Lawrence, the
Broncos were trailing 6-1 entering
the third period and proceeded to win
the game in overtime.

THE BRONCOS ability to
play aggressively is due to their
stability in the net. For the past
three years, Bill Horn has been
minding the Western goal and has
been absolutely amazing. This
season, Horn is second in the league
in goals against average, first in
saves, and first in save percentage.
"With Horn there, we can make
mistakes because he will rectify
them," said Wilkinson. "We can be
more relaxed and aggressive because
he has played well every time he has
been on the ice this year.
"The stability of knowing that he
is there and that there is a chance to
win every game helps our kids out a
lot."
Offensively, the Broncos and
Wolverines boast powerful attacks.
Bronco sophomore centers, Jeff
Green and Paul Polillo, rank first
and fifth respectively in the CCHA
in scoring.
Sophomore Rob Brown, the
leading scorer on the Wolverines
with 16 points, is only three points
behind his last season's total. He and
winger Brad McCaughey combined
for four goals in last Saturday's vic-
tory over Michigan State.
"We are looking for a solid
defensive effort for all three periods,
which is something we've lacked,"
said Michigan assistant coach Larry

Pedrie. "We need to play well defen-
sively because they are a team with a
high-powered offense and a superb
goalie."

Vikings
EDEN PRARIE, Minn. (AP)-
A series of mandatory lectures on
drinking and driving is being lined
up for Minnesota Vikings players by
General Manager Mike Lynn after
the arrests of several players for
drunken driving.
Lynn has been in contact with the
Hazelden Foundation, a substance
abuse treatment facility at Center
City, Minn., to prepare the lectures.
"It's not a program on chemical
dependency or alcohol or chemical
abuse," Lynn said yesterday. "It's an
awareness program about drinking
and.driving and the message in this
whole thing is if you drink, don't
drive."
Seven times in the past 14
months, a Vikings' player has been
charged with driving while intoxi-
cated, including nose tackle Tim
Newton twice and receiver Hassan
Jones this week.
"It's a mystery to us," Lynn said.
"It's bizarre that this would occur to

taken to school

one class of 50 people."
"It disappoints us," Don Weiss,
executive director of the NFL, said
in New York. "It's a matter of con-
cern, and we long have recognized
alcohol may be our No. 1 problem."
Weiss said the league plans no
special investigation at this time and
will let the Vikings handle the
problem on their own.
Despite the arrests, Lynn and
Vikings' players said the team has
no greater drinking problem than
other NFL clubs.
Vikings players say their high
profile, Minnesota's stringent DWI
enforcement, and some of the macho
trappings of their profession all are
factors.
Auburn star center
faints in library
AUBURN, Ala. (AP)- Auburn
senior center Jeff Moore said he
would return to practice today after
feeling no apparent ill effects from a

blackout that happened while. he
searched for a book in the university
library.
Moore, the leading scorer and re-
bounder for Auburn last season, col-
lapsed Wednesday in the library.
"I was looking for a book. The
next thing I knew I saw Coach
(Lawrence) Johnson and Frank (Ford)
standing over me with an ambu-
lance. I just blacked out," Moore
said yesterday.
Ford, a teammate of Moore's last
season who has completed his eligi-
bility, said the 6-7 center had "a
dazed look on his face, like he had
seen a ghost."
Moore, bleeding slightly from the
nose and mouth, was. taken to East
Alabama Medical Center at Opelika,
where he underwent a battery of tests
including a CAT scan, Coach Sunny
Smith said.
