As a team, Michigan made 58.6
percent of its shots. Virginia,.on the

MICHIGAN'S swarming de-
fense added to the Wolverines' rout.
Morgan was harrassed into just 15
points, 10 below his- average, on 5-
"My shot wasn't there today," he
said. "I was just unable to get my
shots off. Nothing felt right. I was
just trying too hard, I guess. "
Stith, the Atlantic Coast Confer-
ence Rookie of the Year, attempted
just six shots after scoring 28 points
against Oklahoma two days earlier.
The Wolverines also dominated
the boards, outrebounding Virginia
43-33. Center Loy Vaught led Mich-
igan with nine, and Mark Hughes
came off the bench to grab seven.
When all was said and done,
however, it was Fisher's day. As
Wolverine fans chanted "Cut the net,
Fisher, cut the net!" Fisher took his
place in NCAA Tournament history,
being the first interim coach to take
a team to the Final Four.
ARE A GREAT
WAY TO GET
"I pinched myself to make sure
I'm in the land of the living," Fisher
said. "Never in my wildest dreams
did I-think I'd be sitting here as head
coach of the University of Michigan
on its way to the Final Four."
Huge victory: The Wolverines'
37-point margin of victory was the
largest ever by a Michigan team in
any post-season tournament.

Saturday's game with Virginia was
the third time that Michigan has
scored 100 points or more in NCAA

Robinson and Higgins in a pre-game
press conference last Friday. When
Fisher asked for help with blowing
out the candles, Higgins remarked:
"That's what happens when you're

Soviets vote in elections
MOSCOW - For the first time in more than 70 years, Soviets had a
choice of candidates when they voted yesterday for a new parliament.
Mikhail Gorbachev hailed the election as a triumph for his vision of
However, maverick candidate, Boris Yeltsin, running to represent
Moscow in the new 2,250-seat Congress of People's deputies, claimed
many soviets are worried about vote fraud and said the election wasn't
The millions of voters elected 1,500 deputies to the congress, which
later will choose the country's president and elect about 400 of its mem-
bers to a new full-time legislature, the Supreme Soviet.
The Communist party, labor unions and other officially sanctioned or-
ganizations have already directly elected 750 members of the congress,
which will meet once a year.
Gorbachev is already assured of a seat in the new congress, and the
elections are unlikely to produce any major upheaval in the present power
structure, which is dominated by the Communist Party.
Bush, Congress debate policy
WASHINGTON - Two top Bush administration officials sought to
smooth over an apparent disagreement in the White House by denying
yesterday that they had surrendered any authority to Congress by reaching
an agreement last week on aid to Nicaraguan guerrillas.
Secretary of State James Baker and White House national security ad-
viser Brent Snowcroft said they did not agree with published remarks at-
tributed to the White House council, Boyden Gray, that the deal en-
croached on the power of the president to conduct foreign policy.
"If you look at the accord carefully, you will see that the leadership of
Congress acknowledges the president's primary responsibility for imple-
menting foreign policy," Baker said.
President Bush, appearing at the White House with congressional
leaders from both parties to announce the deal last Friday, hailed it as a
return to a bipartisan foreign policy.
Gov't says guerrillas were killed
KABUL, Afghanistan - Moslem guerrillas bombarded Jalalabad with
rockets and artillery shells yesterday, and government forces retaliated
with heavy air and ground attacks, the Foreign Ministry said.
A spokesperson for the communist government said 248 guerrillas, 12
civilians and 3 soldiers were killed yesterday around Jalalabad. He said 55
others were wounded and 12 houses were destroyed.
The official Radio Kabul,hmonitored in Islamabad, Pakistan said "after
a shameful defeat" U.S.-backed rebels fled their positions around the city.
But the guerrilla-controlled Afghan News Agency, also monitored in
Islamabad, said insurgents were successfully attacking posts flanking the
embattled city to the north and south. Rebels reported no death toll after
There was no independent confirmation of either report.
Exxon reveals that third
mate was piloting tanker
VALDEZ, Alaska - The tanker that caused the nation's biggest oil
spill when it ran aground on a reef was being piloted by its third mate,
violating company policy that the captain remain on the bridge, Exxon
Shipping Co. said yesterday.
Alaska's governor, meanwhile, prepared to declare once-pristine Prince
William Sound a disaster area as the toll on the waterway's abundant
wildlife began to mount. The Coast Guard said the slick and patches of
oil separated from it were spread over 50 square miles.
Exxon Shipping Co. spokesperson Brian Dunphy told the Associated
Press that the captain of the tanker Exxon Valdez, Joseph Hazlewood, was
not on the bridge at the time of the accident and that third mate Gregory
Cousins was in command.
"It's Exxon's policy that in the waters that the ship was located in, the
captain should have been on the bridge," said Dunphy.
Tired of protests Californa
students protest nothing
SANTA CRUZ, Calif. - It was a protest to end all protests.
A group of college students staged a protest for no reason, holding
blank signs and distributing fliers that said nothing.
They insisted nothing was on their minds.
"The whole point is there are so many protests that people don't read
the signs and don't care anymore," said Bryan Finch,22, a Caprillo Col-
lege student who organized Friday's "non-protest" and served as the offi-
He said the group was protesting the trivialization of protests.
"People are making them worthless by doing them so much," said
