MEN TANKERS SET SIX CONFERENCE RECORDS
Blue wins Big
By TAYLOR LINCOLN
For the third straight year, the
men's swim team is the Big Ten
T champion, defeating second-place
Iowa by 79 points at last weekend's
Big Ten championships in Indi-
In all, Michigan won 11 events,
set six Big Ten meet records, and
qualified 13 swimmers for this
April's NCAA meet.
"The kids who have NCAA po-
tential were outstanding," Michigan
coach Jon Urbanchek said. "(Also)
our depth really helped us."
THE MEET'S opening event
set the tone for the weekend. First-
year freestyler Scott Ryan swam a
Big Ten meet record of 4 min-
utes,18.52 seconds in the 500-yard
freestyle time trials. He went on to
win the final in the 500 freestyle and
to take first-place honors in the
"Ryan's 4:18 really got the guy's
fired up, and they just took it from
there," said Urbanchek.

"I think doing it with one hand
contributed to it undoubtedly,"
Abbott said in an interview on
ESPN last night. "But I hope my
athletic ability had something to do
"If I can open any avenues for

Michigan or Miami, Florida, then
my playing baseball is all the more
worthwhile, and I'm twice as proud.

Other finalists for the Sullivan
Award included Navy's basketball
star David Robinson, trackster Greg
Foster, who set two United States
and one world record in high hurdles,
and Scott Johnson, who won four
gold and four silver medals in th Pan
Am Games gymnastics competition.
"I've been blessed with a great
number of people but Jim is very
special," said Middaugh. "Jimmy's
done all this in just a couple of
years, and spells how well he can do.
I just hope it doesn't hinder his
performance, but he's taking things
in stride - he has no control over
all the awards.
"I think it caught him off guard."
Abbott is expected to start against
the University of Texas this weekend
co-Big Ten swimmer of the year -
may have swum the weekend of his
life. The sophomore won the 50
freestyle, the 100 freestyle, and the
200 freestyle, setting Big Ten meet
records in the latter two events.
IN ADDITION, his time of
42.93 on the first leg of the 400
freestyle relay made him only the
fourth swimmer in United States
history to swim the 100 freestyle in
under 43 seconds. The other three
swimmers were Olympic gold
Breaststrokers Mike Barrowman
and Jan-Erick Olsen finished first and
second respectively in both the 100
and 200 breastroke. According to
Urbanchek, they should be ranked
one and two in the country heading
into the NCAA meet.
Another outstanding performance
came from the 400 medley relay
team, consisting of backstroker Alex
Alvizuri, Olsen, butterflier Marty
Moran, and Lang. Their time of
.:15.14 eclipsed the standing Big
Ten mark. They are currently ranked
No. 1 in the nation.
Alvizuri won both the 100 and
200 backstroke, setting a Big Ten
record in the 200.
Senior Mike Creaser was the de-
fending champion in both events,
but his training was slowed by an
upper respiratory condition, which
he battled for over two weeks in
February. Still, Creaser was able to
meet NCAA qualifying times.
The Holl Truth
BY JULIE HOLLMAN
A horrendous nightmare.
That's what the Michigan hockey team lived
through Sunday night at Lawson Arena in Kalama-
zoo. Western Michigan trounced the Wolverines, 10-
0, and eliminated them from the CCHA playoffs.
Michigan head coach Red Berenson classified the
defeat as the worst loss in his four-year reign. The
game also marked one of Michigan's worst perfor-
mances - a performance that saw the Wolverines
suffer their third shutout of the season, the most for a
Michigan team since 1943.
FROM THE START, the Wolverines looked
flat and unsteady. The defensive wall suffered from, as
the Western score board indicated, "swiss cheese dis-
ease," while at the other end the offensive attack ap-
peared meek and unthreatening. Actually, the Michi-
gan offense never truly became an offense since the
action rarely stayed in the Western zone. Even the
Michigan power play failed to test Western's goalie
At the end of one period, Michigan was lucky to
be down by only two goals. The luck only lasted
through the intermission, though.
In the second period, the Broncos suffocated any
chances for a Wolverine recovery. With only 1:32
gone in the frame, Western scored, increasing the lead
to 3-0. After that, Michigan began to sag and the
score began to soar. The second period ended at 5-0
with Michigan fans wondering were the team they
knew had gone.
THE BEATING only intensified in the third
period as the Broncos made a mockery of the Wolver-
ines. "You don't want to embarrass anyone or their
program, but the puck just bounced our way," said
Western coach Bill Wilkinson.
Whether intent was there or not, Western made
Michigan look bad, very bad.
In the final period, the Broncos scored three goals,
including a shorthanded empty-net goal in just under
Icers' finale taints
season of successes
two minutes. They then added one more a minute
later to cushion the lead even more. Michigan's door
to Joe Louis Arena and the second round was
slammed shut in a quick three minutes.
But the nightmare continued. Three minutes later,
as Michigan fans looked on with only one eye open,
Western added the final nail to hammer in the 10-0
"(Western) is not 10 goals better than Michigan,"
Berenson maintained. "I'm not even sure whether
they're even better than us."
Nevertheless, the Wolverines did lose, they looked
worse, and they were humiliated. "A 10-0 loss is just
as hard to take as a one-goal, down-to-the-wire loss
because 10-0 makes us look so bad," said Rob
THE HARDEST THING Michigan fans were
forced to accept Sunday night was that all this
ineffectiveness came in the most important game of
the season and from a team that had accomplished so
The 1987-88 Wolverines were the first Berenson
team to finish the season with an above .500 record.
They were the first Berenson team to finish above
seventh place (fifth), the first to sweep Illinois-
Chicago, the first to sweep Michigan State, and the
first to win a playoff game. A major goal they didn't
accomplish, however, was to win two.
"We all know that we should have won and that
we should be at Joe Louis. That's the only dark
spot," said Brown. "Other than that I don't see why
we can't look back on the highlights.
"But then again, we have to take the bad things
Said Berenson: "I think we accomplished a lot this
season. The real Michigan team showed up Friday and
Saturday, not (Sunday). That was a shame."
Yes, a real shame.
