to close the game to 32-30. Pa-
padakos had two big plays in that
stretch with a dunk and a tip-in,
which brought the sold-out crowd of
10,004 to their feet.
Grant then hit a three pointer and
two jumpers to keep the Wolverines
in the lead. The Spartans were able
to remain close because they out-re-
bounded the Wolverines, 22-12.
Michigan jumped to a 13 point
lead five minutes into the second
half behind the strong inside play of
Mills, Rice, and Vaught. The
Wolverines sustained the lead until a
Smith layup and Ed Wright's reverse
slam closed the margin to seven at
Following a Michigan timeout,
though, the Wolverines put the
game away with a 13-5 run, includ-
ing seven points by Mills.
"It was just too much Gary Grant
in the first half and too much Terry
Mills in the second half," said
Michigan State head coach Jud
Heathcote, who watched his team
commit 20 turnovers in the game.
Rice put an exclamation point on
the victory with a rocking one-
handed dunk. The junior forward had
ten rebounds, four assists and four
steals in his 36 minutes of action.
The Spartan coach compared this
year's Wolverines favorably to
Frieder's back to back Big Ten
Championship teams of '84-'86. "I
really think this is a better basket-
ball team than the championship
teams Frieder had because they're so
,uch more versatile," Heathcote

Fresh off a decisive victory over
Illinois last week, the Michigan
women's basketball team hopes to
carry its momentum into this
weekend's matches against Ohio
State and Indiana.
The Buckeyes (9-2 overall, 1-0
Big Ten) are ranked eighth nation-
ally and have won four straight.
Coach Nancy Darson starts a n
experienced team led by 1987 Big
Ten Player-of-the-Year Tracey Hall.
Hall's talents are complimented by
forward Nikita Lowry, who aver-
ages 20 points per game.
"Right now we're playing our
best ball of the season," Lowry
said. "This weekend it is important
to go out there and concentrate on
what we do best."
Said Michigan coach Bud Van-
DeWege: "It will be a good test for
us to play a national power like
OSU. We're an up and coming
young team and it would be a great
boost for our program if we could
beat Ohio State."
Although Ohio State is clearly
the tougher of the two weekend op-
ponents, the Wolverines (8-3, 1-1)
must be careful not to look past
"IU's record is deceiving, " said
VanDeWege. "They've suffered
some close losses to good teams.
Regardless of what happens Friday
night, we must be ready to play on

It's tournament time for Michi-
gan's men and women gymnastics
teams. The men will travel to
Chicago over the weekend to com-
pete in the annual Windy City Invi-
tational, while the women head to
Columbia, Mo. to compete against
Nebraska and Missouri on Saturday.
Both teams are looking to im-
prove on their opening match per-
formances. The men tumblers will
face similar opposition in Chicago
as Minnesota, Michigan State, Illi-
nois, Wisconsin, Iowa, and Ohio
State are among the twelve invitees.
"It will be a great meet," said
head coach Bob Darden, "and it will
also give us, being Big Ten teams, a
real good indication of how we'll
finish in the Big.Ten championships
two months away."
Improvement over last week's
performance is the main goal for the
Wolverines in this tournament. In
their first meet, the men were no
match for Ohio State, losing 280.5-
"Based on last week, we have a
lot of room for improvement," said
Darden. "A score of 265 would be a
mid to low range score at this meet
and I hope that is a goal that we can
Despite winning their first meet
last week against Eastern Michigan,
173.95-172.5, the lady tumblers
were not pleased due to the closeness
of the final score.
Nebraska and Missouri pose a
tougher test than the Hurons, but
head coach Dana Kempthorn hopes
these meets will help prepare her
squad for Big Ten competition. "It's
a good pressure meet for us," shie
Kempthorn, in her fourth season
as women's gymnastics coach,
added, "we really are not going to be
able to have too many mistakes if
we want to beat them."
