The Michigan Daily - Monday, January 16, 1989-- Page 17
The Michigan wrestling team had
a productive weekend, tallying four
victories, including their Big Ten
opener against Michigan State
On the Crisler Arena mats Friday,
the Wolverines easily disposed of
Northern Illinois, 35-6, and Morgan
State, 37-9. Michigan lost only two
matches in each meet, including one
; each by Sam Amine. Brett
Messerli of Northern Illinois
deoisioned Amine, 9-5, and Amine
was pinned by Chauncy Williams of
"He's (Amine) real tentative,"
said Michigan coach Dale Bahr. "His
confidence is really kind of shaken."
ACCORDING TO Bahr, this
is due to Amine's loss in the last 10
:econds against Tim Chesbro of
Oklahoma State at the Virginia
Duals last weekend.
Amine's slump continued against
Erick Jensen of Michigan State on
Saturday in the Wolverines 30-7
triumph. "He was trying to protect
his lead. He didn't want anything to
happen like happened against
Oklahoma State," said Bahr.
Amine was leading 3-2 and
vanted to maintain his lead in the
final thirty seconds but was
penalized for a stalling call.
'He was a little more cautious
than he should have been and the
referee penalized him and this gave a
point to Jensen and tied it up," Bahr
ABUT BAHR is not concerned.
'The good thing I like about it is
e's still hanging in there and he
otld be really down because he's
not used to losing. He hates to lose
and it really affects him," Bahr said.
And yesterday against Lehigh,
Amine returned to form.
Before Amine's match, Michigan
held a slim 12-10 advantage over the
Engineers. Amine came out
agressive and earned a technical fall
over Andre Keiley to increase the
"I felt good because I wrestled
pretty badly Friday," Amine said. "I
felt like I wrestled real strong and up
to my capabilities."
NEXT WEEKEND, Amine
will wrestle at 150 pounds due to the
return of his brother, Mike, at 167.
This will also move Joe Pantaleo
back to his All-America weight of
Due to Mike's absence this
weekend, Zac Pease filled in at 150,
wrestling for the first time in over a
year. But Pease showed he can
contribute when called upon.
"I'm just getting back into the
flow of things," said Pease, after his
matches on Friday. He lost a 3-2
decision to Jim Kossakowsi of
Northern Illinois, but came back to
defeat Kenny Huddleston of Morgan
State, 12-10, in the final seconds
when he scored a two-point reversal.
"My knee's holding up pretty
good," Pease added. "It (his knee
brace) only weighs a pound and a
half but still it limits your
movement. My knee's only about
75-80 percent right now, but it
should be just as strong or stronger
than the other one."
ON SATURDAY, Pease
defeated Spartan Mike Krause, 10-6.
Against Lehigh, he lost a 12-3
decision to Lane Pendleton, to go
two-and-two for the weekend, despite
being at less than full strength.
"It's nice to see a young man
come- off a major knee
reconstruction," Bahr said. "I see
semblances of what he was before he
was hurt... I'm real pleased with
177 pounder James Dye was also
a pleasant surprise, who in his last
year of eligibility went 3-1,
including a dominating 16-0
technical fall over Lehigh.
"James looked great," Pantaleo
said. "If he wrestles like this he'll be
All-Americans John Fisher, 134,
and Pantaleo, 158, continued to
uphold their No. 1 rankings. Fisher
won all three of his matches this
weekend, including a pin of Lehigh's
All-American John Epperly.
Pantaleo seemed not to mind the
switch in weight from 158 to 167
pounds. "It was fun not having to
lose weight," Pantaleo said.
The weekend, however, did not
pass for the Wolverines without
controversy. Yesterday, Larry
Gotcher was up 4-3 against Joe
Hermann from Lehigh when
Hermann was awarded an escape
point to tie the score up. Hermann
had been warned for stalling during
the match but the referee called it on
Gotcher. "The guy backs away from
me the whole match and he calls it
-Mike Amine was "anxious, real
anxious," to get back into the
lineup. Mike is expected back in
time for Thursday's Indiana match.
-Saturday's meet, although a 31-7
victory for Michigan, was not
without its own peculiar drama. Jeff
McCollum, second string at 126
behind John Moore, was asked to
weigh in at 134 at 2:00, an hour
before the meet. "When they called
me I was eating, doing my
application for the Business
School," McCollum said. "I was
four-and-a-half pounds over and we
had to drive over. When I found out I
put on my plastic suit and started
doing pushups and situps in the car
McCollum made weight and
Michigan was awarded a forfeit
victory. A wrestler needs 12 team
points to earn a varsity letter and
when coach Bahr saw the
opportunity for McCollum to earn
six points towards that total, he
telephoned him. Later McCollum
was proud that he had earned, "six
team points," for Michigan.

continued. "Come here, a second, let
me show you something," Copeland
said to me after Saturday's win.
He led me into a room where all
that," said Michigan head coach Bud
VanDeWege. "We allowed ourselves
to get trapped and they flat out took
it to us."
THE CONSISTENT traps set
up by the Hoosiers caused the
Wolverines to miss easy shots.
Michigan's 36 percent field goal
percentage is indicative of the missed
high-percentage , shots that
VanDeWege says has plagued the
team the last two weeks.
Added Tempie Brown: "We just
have to toughen up and play with
pride. We have to stop turning the
ball over so casually in practice."
The Hoosiers had no problems
converting Michigan's turnovers to
quick baskets. Indiana had three
players with at least 18 points,
including Pam Fritz with a game-
leading 21 points. Fritz went nine-
for-nine in the first half.
THE WOLVERINES received
inspired play off the bench from
center Mary Rosowski, who finished
the game with a team-leading 10
points. Rosowski also added three
rebounds and two steals.
"This may have been Mary's best
performance here at Michigan,"
VanDeWege said proudly.
Rookies Char Durand and Leah
Wooldridge also contributed off the
bench with nine and six points,
respectively. The two also combined
for three steals.
Starting center Joan Rieger did
not fare as well, as she scored no
points and had only one rebound in
her 16 minutes of play.
Fortunately for the Wolverines,
their next two Big Ten matches
come against Northwestern and
Wisconsin, two teams that are not as
strong as Indiana.
"We beat those teams last year
