The Big Ten conference has
been investigating the Michigan
baseball program over the past
month for 28 instances of alleged
improprieties in recruiting and
"Whenever there is a
complaint against a coach, the
Big Ten sends a guy to
investigate," Athletic Director Bo
Schembechler said Saturday.
"There is a Big Ten inquiry, not
an NCAA investigation, brought
about by accusations made by
other coaches. They are looking
at recruiting violations that date
back several years."

Bruce Madej said the athletic
department is cooperating fully
with the Big Ten, and that any

It was Michigan interim coach
Steve Fisher's day. No matter how
much he wanted to stay out of the
spotlight, it shone his way.
The media swarmed around Fisher

buzzer sounded in Michigan's 102-

Southeast Regional Final.

and the last strand was saved for
Fisher. "That was like an unspoken
thing, like it was meant to be,"
Vaught said. "In my opinion, he's
the reason why we're here now."
But he's certainly not the only
reason why Michigan will be going
to the Final Four for the first time
since 1976. Guard Sean Higgins
r aided Fisher's cause with 31 points
in just 20 minutes.
"YOU GROW up watching the
Sampsons and the Worthys and
Magic and Bird playing in it and you
always dream you'll make it," said
Higgins, who lived out his child-
hood fantasies Saturday.
\ Senior forward Glen Rice, the
unanimous choice as Most Outstand-
ing Player of the Southeast Re-
gional, played like the Sampsons
and the Worthys by leading the
Wolverines with 32 points.
Michigan also received a solid
performance from Rumeal Robin-
son, who chipped in with 13 points
and seven assists. Robinson and
Higgins were both selected to the

stayed with them today, and we
certainly couldn't do it," Virginia

player as I've seen in a long, long

could have stopped Rice, no matter
what we did."

intensity was the key. "They were so
fired up," he said. "I just wish I had
the fight in my eyes that Higgins
had in his. Every time he shot, I
hated to turn around, because it was
going in. He was unconscious. They
were all unconscious."
Unconscious, indeed. Higgins
shot 11-of-15 from the field, and 7-

Rice shot 81.3 percent from the field
(13-of-16), which is the second-best
Michigan shooting performance in
the NCAA Tournament.
"I can tell once I take the first
shot," Rice said. "Then I feel I'm on
