Matmen set to storm Cyclones
BY STEVEN COHEN
Michigan's wrestling team has a
very tough task on its hands tomor-
row at Iowa State. This is not
suprising since the words
"wrestling" and "Iowa" are
practically synonymous. Three
schools in Iowa - Iowa State,
Iowa, and Northern Iowa -
currently reside in the nation's top
Michigan, 6-2 in dual meets this
season, is currently ranked 14th na-
tionally. Excluding last night's
match at Minnesota, the team has
handily defeated its last five oppo-
nents. Coach Dale Bahr feels that his
Wolverines do not have a weak link.
Iowa State, the defending national
champions, doesn't have any weak
links themselves. Five outstanding
wrestlers return from a team that last
year ended Iowa's nine-year string of
THE CYCLONES are cur-
rently ranked fifth in the nation and
have a 14-3 record in dual meets.
This year Iowa State won the presti-
gious Virginia Duels, edging Ari-
zona State. Most recently, they de-
feated No. 1-ranked Oklahoma State,
In previewing the 10 different
weight classes, Iowa State coach Jim
Iowa St. defending
national champ ions
Gibbons conceded to Michigan only
two clear cut advantages, in the 118
and 158-pound weight classes.
At 118, William Waters, 4-1, is
wrestling first-year wrestler Dan
Knight who has a record of 12-13.
Michigan's Joe Pantaleo, ranked
third nationally, will wrestle Bill
Tate, 13-8, in the 158-pound weight
Pantaleo feels that the first four
matches will set the tone of the
"WE HAVE the ability to take
them out of the dual meet by win-
ning the first four," the junior said.
"If Dave Dameron (126 pounds)
stays on (fourth-ranked) Steve
Knight he has a good chance of
134-pounder John Fisher hopes to
bounce back from his recent loss to
Oklahoma State's John Smith, but
he will have a tough match on his
hands. Iowa State's Jeff Gibbons is
ranked fourth and last year finished
third in the NCAAs.
Gibbons defeated the second-
ranked Fisher last year at the nation-
als, 11-2, but Fisher wrestled with a
sprained ankle he suffered in the pre-
vious match. The Flint native
handed Gibbons one of his two
losses this year.
The 142, 167, and heavyweight
weight classes are matches that can
push Michigan over the edge. The
Wolverines will need strong perfor-
mances from Larry Gotcher, Mike
Amine, and Bob Potokar, respec-
tively, because Iowa State is
particularly strong at 150, 177, and
IOWA STATE'S Mike Van
Arsdale at 19-2 is ranked fourth at
177. Michigan's James Dye has his
work cut out for him. At 190, the
Cyclones' Erik Volker, ranked sec-
ond nationally with a 21-3 record,
squares off against Jerry Curby.
Michigan's 150-pounder Sam
Amine faces perhaps the biggest
challenge in his young career in No.
1-ranked Tim Kreeger. Amine,
blessed with great confidence and
skill, should prove to be a worthy
opponent for Kreeger.
An additional test for Michigan
will be the large crowd that is ex-
pected. Pantaleo remembers the last
time he wrestled at Iowa State.
"My freshman year, Iowa State
had about 6,000 people there. It can
be intimidating for the younger
wrestlers. I walked out onto the mnat
for my match, but I had to wait be-
cause there was a halftime show: I
nearly bumped into a cheerleader."'

To motivate his team this week-
end against Minnesota and Iowa,
Michigan women's basketball coach
Bud VanDeWege will use two
different techniques - revenge
tonight and hope for Sunday.
At Crisler Arena tonight (7:30
p.m.) the Wolverines battle for fifth
place with the Gophers. Both teams
enter the contest with 3-4 league
While fighting for fifth place
with Minnesota may sound as excit-
ing as digging a hole, VanDeWege
underscores the importance of this
game, including past results - a
fact he won't forget in his pregame
"WE FEEL they embarrassed us
last year, on our home floor, in our
last home game (90-62)," said the
fourth-year coach. "We're really de-
termined to get after them this year.
This is for the. upper division of the
Big Ten - our goal."
Minnesota (7-9), led by seniors
Diane Kinney and Susie Piram,
come to Ann Arbor this year with
new coach Merrily Dean Baker.
An interesting sidebar to the
game will occur at halftime. It will
mark the debut of The Wolverettes, a
kickline group. They will be per-
forming "We're Gonna Love
Tonight." This may well be worth
the price of admission alone.
SUNDAY is "Invasion of
League Leaders Day" at Crisler.

when Iowa was caught in the middle
of Michigan's charging calvary and
fell to the Wolverines in a major

3. Outrebound. (Overall, the team
has out-rebounded their league
4. Win all critical statistical ar-

The coach teases: "Is this the year
Iowa's going to go 18-0? Some-
body's libel to get them and we be-
lieve we're ready to go."
Tune in Sunday.
