'M' past'
in Maui
LAHAINA, Hawaii (AP) -
Michigan coach Bill Frieder's advice
to his foul-troubled point guard was
short and simple: "Rumeal, don't get
your fifth foul."
Rumeal Robinson did eventually
get it, but while he was playing with
four fouls, he led the Wolverines to
the championship of the Maui
Classic.
The junior guard scored 20 points
while running Michigan's offense
against the pressure defense of
Oklahoma Sunday night as the third-
ranked Wolverines beat the fourth-
ranked Sooners, 91-80.
MICHIGAN held a comfortable
lead through most of the second half
until Robinson picked up his fourth
foul with 10:16 remaining and the
Wolverines leading 63-55.
Oklahoma then went on a 7-0 run
to get within one point with 8:34
left, and Frieder was forced to put
Robinson back in the game with
7:30 left to play.
"I had a lot of fouls in the other
games and they were for hand-
checking so I knew I couldn't do
that," said Robinson, who also had
five assists. "I didn't do anything
different than I usually do for the
team."
Frieder disagreed.
1RUMEAL still overhandles a
little, but without him in there we
were losing our poise a little and we
were a little tired," he said. "When he
got back, things went OK both
offensively and defensively."
After a jumper by teammate Sean
Higgins, Robinson scored
Michigan's next nine points to open
up a 74-67 lead with 5:02 left when
he nailed a three-pointer.
Robinson picked up his fifth foul
with 4:28 left, but Oklahoma
couldn't rally a second time with the
6-foot-2 guard out of the lineup.
The Wolverines, who
outrebounded Oklahoma, 42-29,
increased the lead throughout the
final minutes as Oklahoma stayed
cold from the field, and the

M' remains in second
despite slump at Yost

BY TAYLOR LINCOLN
In the distance you could hear the Western
Michigan players singing their school fight
song, celebrating Saturday's 6-5 win. In the
home team's locker room there was silence,
save for an occasional expletive.
Another setback at Yost - increasing the
Wolverines home winless streak to six.
Another missed opportunity for Michigan
to solidify its grip on second place in the
CCHA.
The Wolverines took the upper hand in last
weekend's series by scoring two goals in the
last seven minutes to pull out a tie in Friday's
game at Kalamazoo. A tie on the road is said
to be as good as a win. A come-from-behind
tie is even better.
THE FIRST PERIOD Saturday night
was wide open. Both teams had several scoring
chances, but Michigan held the upper hand
early, carrying a 3-1 lead into the final minutes
of the period.
Then, the party ended. The Broncos scored
twice in the final two minutes of the period,
then added two more goals in the second period
to take a 5-3 lead.
But the Wolverines did not play dead. They
fought back to tie the score at 5-5 before
yielding the decisive goal to Western's Rob
Pallin with just under five minutes remaining.
Mike Moes made a bid to knot the score at
6-6 in the late seconds when his wrist shot hit

the post. Earlier in the game, Ted Kramer, who
had two goals in the first period, also rattled a
shot off the post.
So close.
CLOSE, THOUGH, is nothing new for
Michigan. Of the Wolverine's four home
losses, three have been decided by one goal.
And in the loss to Bowling Green, the game
was tied 5-5 in the third period before the
Falcons pulled away to an 8-5 victory.
Why the troubles at home?
"We play more disciplined, better team
hockey on the road," said captain Todd Brost.
"We have our minds set on defensive play."
Berenson is not panicking over his teams
frustrations, though he wouldn't mind
reversing the losing trend at home. "We're
playing pretty well," said Berenson. "but other
teams are coming in here and playing well,
too. I think that as the season wears on, the
home ice advantage will assert itself. But it
concerns me that we're not building confidence
at home."
Despite the recent struggles, Michigan still
clings to sole possession of second place in the
league, one point ahead of Illinois-Chicago and
four points ahead of Lake Superior. But both
teams have played two fewer games than
Michigan and will have an opportunity to gain
ground this weekend when the Wolverines take
on non-league foes Boston University and
Boston College.

Blue Banter
-Junior 'left winger Ryan Pardoski sat out=
last weekend's series because of a back injury-
incurred in practice. Berenson says that his
status is day to day.
-Michigan is ranked 10th in the country in.
the WMEB media poll and is unranked in the
KBJR coaches poll.
-CCHA leader Michigan State continues to
maintain its No. 1 ranking in both the WMEB.~.
poll and the KBJR poll. The Spartans have
scored the most points in the league and have
given up the fewest. They also lead the league,
in both power-play proficiency and penalty,-
killing. How good are they?
"I haven't had a chance to see them play
yet," said Berenson. "On paper going into the,
season they had everyone's respect, but no one
predicted that they'd get off to a start like this."
Michigan will face Michigan St. in two
weeks.
-Michigan got a taste of college hockey's
version of Bob Probert last weekend. He took,
the form of Western Michigan forward Andy
Rymsha, who tallied 26 minutes in penalties
during the series.
"The only reason he's on the ice is because
he's a physical player," said Berenson. "Your
check his stats over the last few years and he's
done nothing. He has no skills."
Rymsha has yet to score a goal or collect an
assist this season.

Junior Mike Griffin started
all three games for Michigan
at the Maui Classic.
Wolverines made seven of eight freel
throws in the final two minutes.
MICHIGAN'S Glen Ricel
finished with 17 points and wash
named the tournament's most
valuable player.
"It was a very physical game ands
we knew how Oklahoma couldi
rebound so we were ready," Rice said.f
"Being named MVP was never in my
mind; just winning the game was."
Higgins finished with 19 for
Michigan, which beat Vanderbilt andL
Memphis State on its way to the
title game. Loy Vaught had 13 and
Kirk Taylor 12 for the 3-0
Wolverines.
Stacey King led Oklahoma, which
beat two ranked teams, No. 16 Ohio
State and No. 8 Nevada-Las Vegas in
the opening rounds, with 27 points.
Tyrone Jones added 18 and Mookie
Blaylock 11 for the 2-1 Sooners.
"We were never in synch tonight
and we never seemed able to get any
control of the game," King said.
"The game wasn't as physical as
Nevada-Las Vegas was but I'm
getting used to having two and three
guys defending me. It will just take
time for the others on our team to
adjust."
