Men swimmers top the best in
the Dallas Swim Classic
by Douglas Donaldson
Daily Sports Writer
When you've beaten the best, what else is there?
That could very well be the feeling at Canham
Natatorium this week, after the Michigan men's swim
team outswam the U.S. National Team, while garnering
first place honors in last weekend's Dallas Morning
News Swim Classic.
However, each team member could provide the same
simple answer to the above question: an NCAA
championship. The team has remained focused on this
goal throughout the year, and have continued to view
every victory as merely a step in achieving it. As the
Wolverines enter the final third of the year, they have the
luxury of spending the remainder of the schedule at
Despite competing much of the past month in
climates such as Florida, California, and Texas, the team
is more than happy to be back in chilly Ann Arbor. "It's
definitely good to be home," Coach Jon Urbanchek said.
"We've been on the road since December 26, living out
of a suitcase, and we really don't want to travel
Competing in the Dallas invitational meet were six
of the nation's finest swim teams, including Nebraska,
SMU, Texas, UCLA, and the U.S. National Team. By
finishing first, Michigan displayed both the talent and
drive necessary to seriously compete in the quest for a
Spread out over two days, the meet consisted of 17
events. Michigan dominated from beginning to end,
finishing with a score of 316. The U.S. National Team
placed second (307), followed by Texas (297).
As usual, the Wolverines were led by junior Mike
Barrow-man, who continued his assault on swimming
records across the nation. Friday, Barrowman swam to a
first-place finish in the 100-yard breaststroke, with an
NCAA-qualifying time of 55.59. On Saturday, he set a
new meet and pool record in winning the 200-yard
His time of 1:58.22 broke the record formerly held by
1984 U.S. Olympian Steve Lundquist. Barrowman also
finished third in the 200-yard individual medley. All
totaled, Barrowman tallied 47 individual points in
pushing Michigan to the win.
"It was a great victory," Urbanchek said. "We had a
number of outstanding individual performances from
Barrowman, Brent Lang and Eric Namesnik, who had a
lifetime best time in the 500-yard freestyle."
The Dallas meet marked the final time the Wolverines
will compete on the road this season, with the importantO
exception of the NCAA Championships in late March.
All that remains on the Wolverines' dual meet schedule
is three Big Ten conference meets, beginning with
Michigan State this Friday.

Minnesota's Willie Burton was named the Big Ten
Player of the Week yesterday. The Detroit native had a
21 point, 10 rebound performance in a win over Iowa
last Thursday and scored 22 points with 8 rebounds in a
108-87 victory over Indiana on Sunday. Minnesota,
which has won four of its past five games but is
winless on the road in conference play, now sports a 5-3
Big Ten record.
BO, YOU'RE NOT ALONE: Illinois' assistant
coach Jimmy Collins joined former Michigan football
coach Bo Schembechler by having a losing game
dedicated to him. On Monday night, Iowa defeated
Illinois 78-76 at home. Collins, the Illini's chief re-
cruiter, was implicated by Iowa officials in a series of
illegalities concerning the recruitment of prize first-year
phenom Deon Thomas. Iowa assistant coach Bruce
Player of Week
Pearl had taped an interview between Thomas and
himself in which Thomas allegedly indicated Illinois
offered him $80,000 and a Chevrolet Blazer to suit up
for the Illini. Thomas has been prohibited from playing
this season by Illinois officials while Collins has not
been allowed to recruit this season.
"Sometimes you're going to want to win a game too
badly," Collins said yesterday. I think they may have
gotten up too much for that game, not to make excuses.
I don't want them playing for me. I want them to play
In a front page story last week, the Chicago Tribune
reported the "death penalty," athletic armageddon, may
loom in the future for the Illini basketball program.
"It has been very tough because we've been
instructed by the NCAA and the university not to say
anything," Pearl said. "So our side hasn't come
out...But I have a feeling that justice will prevail."
