FEW MEETS LEFT FOR TANKERS AT MATT MANN POOL
'M' faces Big Ten foes

By TAYLOR LINCOLN
The men's swim team has not
lost a dual meet since the winter of
'84. Tonight that streak should be
severely tested when 11th-ranked
Iowa visits Matt Mann pool at 7:30
p.m.
Michigan head coach Jon Ur-
banchek maintains a healthy respect
for the Hawkeyes. "Iowa has the
depth to challenge us for a dual
meet, as well as the talent to chal-
lenge us in the Big Ten meet i n
early March," he said.
"They're well stocked for the dis-
tance events. Plus they're loaded in
the sprint freestyle. They'll be
tougher to beat in a dual meet than
Stanford was."
MICHIGAN shocked the sec-
ond-ranked Stanford Cardinal at Matt
Mann pool three weeks ago.
Iowa's top swimmer is senior
Dan Dumford, who swims the
freestyle, backstroke, butterfly, as
well as the individual medley. "He's

the most versatile swimmer in the
Big Ten," said Urbanchek.
Freshman diver Tomasz Rossa
has also bolstered the Iowa corps.
According to Urbanchek, he should
challenge Michigan's top diver, Lee
Michaud. Michaud has yet to be se-
riously tested in the Big Ten this
year.
Tonight's meet will also be the
final major event held at Matt Mann
pool. There will be two more home
meets this year, against Michigan
St. and Indiana, but Michigan will
be overwhelming favorites to win
both.
Womenface Indiac
Jim Richardson's 10th-ranked
women's swim team will take to the
water at Matt Mann Pool for the fi-
nal time tomorrow against Indiana at
1 p.m.
By late summer, the new natato-
rium, located on Hoover Street be-
tween the IM building and Revelli
Hall, will house all swimming and

diving meets. Matt Mann will be
renovated into an indoor arena for
volleyball, wrestling, gymnastics,
and women's basketball.
Says Richardson, "One of the
major things about Saturday is that it
is the last dual meet at Matt Mann
Pool for us. I'd really like to see a
good number of the students and
community come out to honor the
seniors for the comittment that they
have given to Michigan Swimming".
MICHIGAN'S seniors include
divers Mary Fischbach, Bonnie
Pankopf, and Cokey Smith, and
swimmer Anne Rood.
The meet will have a slightly al-
tered format, as the teams will swim
the 400 IM and the 4x200 free relay.
According to Richardson, "These
longer races will give us a chance to
look at our people and find good
events for them at the Big Ten
Championships.
"Indiana will come to play. They
want to establish themselves before
Big Tens. Indiana had the largest re-
cruiting class, but they also have had
some adversity."
The Hoosiers lost their number-
one backstroker Heidi Hafner to
grades. Hafner also possessed one of
Indiana's top butterfly times. Dou-
bling the Hoosier's problems in the
backstroke is the loss of their num-
ber two swimmer Caroline Tesky.
She is out due to an injury.
But the Indiana ranks will not be
totally depleted, as last year's Big
Ten 100 free champ Kate McDonald
will provide a strong challenge for
Michigan's sprint corps led by All-
American Susie Rabiah. Says
Richardson "The sprints will proba-
bly be the best races of the meet."
And even with the loss of their
top two backstrokers, Dottie Lins-
meyer and McDonald will give Indi-
ana coach Chet Jastremski a strong
one-two punch in the backstroke
events.

So, obviously the Boilermakers will have some
revenge on their minds this weekend. More impor-
tantly, though, this year's contest is a key game for
both teams in the Big Ten race.
THE TWO squads are tied for first place with 7-1
conference records, and the winner will have the lead
heading into the second half of the season.
What will Purdue, 18-2 on the season, have to do
differently this year? "Play better," Keady simply
stated. "We're not worried about last year's game.
We're worried about coming in and competing with
them this year."
If the 11th-ranked Wolverines, 18-3, play anywhere
near as well as they did in Wednesday's 120-103 win
over Iowa, "competing with them" may be difficult for
Purdue. But, the sixth-ranked Boilermakers have had
some pretty impressive games themselves and have as
talented and experienced a team as there is in the coun-
try.
"Purdue has an outstanding team and it's going to
be a battle - a great game;" Frieder said.
PURDUE LOST only forward Doug Lee from
last year's 25-5 squad, returning three senior starters and
one junior. Eight of its top nine scorers are back also.
Seniors Troy Lewis and Everette Stephens

comprise one of the best backcourts in the nation. They
combine for about 30 points per game and will be a
great match for Michigan's tandem of Gary Grant and
Rumeal Robinson.
Frieder said that containing Purdue's guards will be
one of the keys to the game. While many will. look at
the backcourt matchup to determine which team has the
better pair, Grant doesn't care for reputations or
comparisons.
"It doesn't make a difference how people play down
the road," Grant said. "It's just what happens in that
particular game. I hope they have- a bad game because
they're a tandem of guards that can hurt you in all
ways."
" THE Boilermakers' frontcourt can also cause
some damage. Senior forward Todd Mitchell is leading
the team with 19 ppg in the conference and center
Melvin McCants (13.6 ppg) is a physical player inside.
Kip Jones rounds out the starting lineup at forward.
Purdue has two good bench players in guard Tony
Jones and forward-center Steve Scheffler.
Now, the Boilermakers will be looking for their
biggest win of the year - and revenge.
"They're a well balanced and experienced team,"
Grant said. "And they're going to be fired up because of
what happened last year here."

Tracksters
at MSU
By KRISTIN MATTHEWS
Only the best will compete.
So state the rules for the Michi-,
gan State Invitational Relays in
which several members of Michi-
gan's women's track team will com-
pete tomorrow in East Lansing.
The meet - consisting largely of
Michigan schools including host
Michigan State - has a closed for
mat this year where each running and
field event will be restricted to either
10 or 20 entry positions, contingent
on the standards for that particular
event.
A confident Henry said, "I expect
most of our team to make the
(qualifying times) and be able to
compete."
MUCH OF the coach's opti-
mism springs from the women's
impressive finishes last weekend in
the Can-Am Classic, which the
Wolverines deemed their best meet
of the season.
Henry believes his athletes are
still a half a second behind their ideal
time in the running events and half
an inch short in field event finishes.
But he is so assured of their im-
provement, that he goes as far as to
predict nine Wolverines to qualify
tomorrow..
Starry Hodges, who bettered her
personal best throw in the shot put
and won a first place last weekend;
along with Sonia Payne, the present
school recorder holder, have excellent
odds of qualifying in the field event..
Most likely, the 4x800-meter re-
lay team of Chris Tyler, Chris
Danks, Melissa Thompson and
