*4 pulled hamstring, but showed no
signs of slowing down.
"We had four or five guys under
the weather and so we just dug deep
into ourselves and played as hard as
we could," Rice said.

Frieder found the cure for his
backcourt blues that deepened last
PASS
IT
AROUND!

Saturday when guard Kirk Taylor
sustained a year-ending injury. De-
metrius Calip filled the void by
delivering 17 quality minutes while
registering two points, three assists,
one steal and no turnovers.
"Calip did a great job," Frieder
said. "He deserves some credit. He's
a great little player."
Rice, the Big Ten's leading
scorer, ended the game as Michigan's
leading point getter with 21, despite
being held to 3 of 6 shooting in the
first half. Robinson, who also had a
slow beginning, added 13 second-half
points to keep the Wolverines out of
Purdue's reach.
After falling behind at the start of
the second half, the Boiler-makers
threatened to chop the lead on several
occassions but could never make up
the eight-point deficit they sustained
in the opening minutes.
Purdue's Kip Jones and Steve
Scheffler continually beat the Wol-
verines underneath the basket and
dumped in 14 and nine second-half
points, respectively. Jones finished

the night leading all scorers with 25
points.
Purdue looked to its prolific
power forward and pre-season All
Big Ten selection Melvin McCants
for help, but didn't get its wish.
McCants was shut down by the
Wolverines for the second time this
season and only gained eight points
and five rebounds.
Said Purdue coach Gene Keady
with great disappointment: "It's very
frustrating for him and for me.
Someone's got his Voodoo doll
stuck with pins.
"You don't need a dictionary to
say how I feel. We lost the first five
minutes of the first half and the first
five minutes of the second half."
The Wolverines ended the first
half up 33-32, but had to fight for
their measly edge. In addition to
being tied six times, the score
swayed back and forth with the lead
never reaching more than four. Both
teams looked erratic and neither
could control the tempo. Michigan
commited 10 first-half turnovers
while Purdue coughed up seven.

Wolvernines prove they
could also pound out a win

BY DOUG VOLAN
Everybody knows that Michigan
can run. But in last night's 84-70
victory overPurdue, the Wolverines
proved that they could bang with the
best of them.
Despite the fact that Purdue
controlled the tempo for the entire
first half and part of the second,
Michigan prevailed.
With a front line of Melvin
McCants (6-foot-9, 240 pounds),
Stephen Scheffler (6-9, 250) and Kip
Jones (6-8, 215), the Boilmakers are
fond of walking the ball up the court
and pounding it inside. Indeed,
Purdue's frontcourt scored 51 of the
team's 70 points, including 25 by
Kip Jones, a career high.
"Whenever we play Purdue, we
know that it's going to be a tough
physical game," Michigan center

Mark Hughes said. "We tried to key
on (McCants and Schefler) and Kip
Jones just got away from us."
The injury-plagued Wolverines
rose to the occasion, however, and
matched Purdue's inside strength
point for point. Michigan led 33-32
at the half. Michigan also out-
rebounded Purdue, 16-11. By games
end, that lead stretched to 33-26.
In the second half, the Wolverines
came out running the fast break,
playing their type of game instead of
Purdue's. With 18:53 left in the
contest, Michigan scored its first fast
break basket of the game off of a
blocked shot by Loy Vaught. Then

two Purdue turnovers led to another
four Michigan points and as
Michigan coach Bill Frieder put it
"That was the game right there."
The Wolverines ran much of the
second half and set screens for Glen
Rice, who scored just six first-half
points. After the intermission, Rice
had 15.

Frieder thought his team's
fortunes changed when there was a
smaller lineup on the court. The
second-half lineup consisted mostly
of Demetrius Calip, Rumeal Rob-
inson, Sean Higgins, Rice, and
Vaught.
"In the second half we made the
necessary adjustments," Frieder said.

MATE THE REST OF YOUR IFfE THE BEST OF YOUR LIFE!

BY JEFF SHERAN
With perhaps a bit of quiet disdain, the Michigan mens' tennis team
completed a nine match sweep of the University of Toledo yesterday.
Preseason rankings slotted the Wolverines as the eleventh best team in
the nation. The team, however disagrees. "The actual polls (based on team
competition) should list us higher," Michigan coach Brian Eisner said.
Michigan is coming off a season which ended with a third place finish at
the NCAA's. It fields players like No. 1 ranked Malivai Washington and
Dan Goldberg, who finished second in the NCAA's two seasons ago.
Now the Wolverines sport a 4-0 record as well. They took all five singles
matches and all four doubles matches from Toledo. The victory was a
"pleasing performance" to Eisner, and a "dress rehearsal" for the upcoming
National Indoor Tennis Championships next week.
Washington defeated Brian Draxl, 6-4, 6-2. "I got off to a slow start. I
was still a little tired from (the National Clay Court Tournament) last
weekend," Washington said. "But I knew my capabilities, that if I had to, I
could up my game, so I was never in any real trouble."
He then won his doubles match by the same score, sharing the court with
teammate David Kass. Kass trounced Jerome Moenter, 6-2, 6-2.
"There's nothing (Kass) can't get to with his quickness, and he has
tremendous penetration with his groundstrokes," Eisner said.
Eisner opted not to start Goldberg at singles, opting for John Karzen this
time out. Karzen went on to win convincingly, 6-1, 6-1. Goldberg and Jean
Roussell won their doubles match, 6-0, 6-0.
