Berenson said. "It was a big step for
our program and another step would

It was too late to win the Big
Ten title, but soon enough to
salvage third place as the Wolverines
turned in one of their most lop-sided
victories of the season, 127-96, over
The win, coupled with Minn-
esota's loss to Ohio State, gave
Michigan sole possession of third
place. Michigan also set a Crisler
Arena record for points scored.
Starting with seven straight
points by Demetrius Calip, who
scored a career-high 22, Michigan
(22-7 overall, 12-6 Big Ten) led
from the start and expanded its lead
throughout the first half. The first
half high-point was a 27 point lead
with just under two minutes left.
Iowa (12-16, 4-14) mounted several
mini-comebacks in the second
twenty minutes but never got closer
than 17.
"I kept thinking we'd make a
run," Iowa coach Tom Davis said.
"We'd get it down to 20 and I
thought maybe we could get it in the
teens and make them sweat a little,
but they'd jump back on us."

Win over Falcons lends
consolation for OT loss

In beating Bowling Green 5-4
in the consolation game yesterday,
the Michigan hockey team (24-12-
6) could return to the 12-team
NCAA tournament for the first
time since 1977.
A weekend earlier Michigan
swept past Western Michigan for
its first ever opening-round victory
in the CCHA playoffs. Then, the
Wolverines had to face top-ranked
Michigan State on Saturday, a
tough, emotional game in which
the Spartans won in overtime 4-3.
"We played a solid game and
overall it was a very even game,
either team could have won it,"
coach Red Berenson said.
Michigan State scored two
power play goals in the first period-
and-a-half and led 2-1 going into the
third period with the only
Wolverine score coming from Mike
Moes at 1:37 in the second period.
Then at 7:12 into the third,
Moes scored again as he shot past a
sliding Steve Beadle to tie the game
at two goals apiece. Four minutes
later Denny Felsner passed to Alex
Roberts shot scored from almost
mid-ice to give Michigan a 3-2 lead
with 8:51 remaining.

Unfortunately, the emotions
weren't enough as Spartan Peter
White took passes from Bryan
Smolinski and Shawn Heaphy to
tie the game at 3-3 with five
minutes to go.
At 4:23 in the overtime the
hopes of a CCHA championship
ended for Michigan as Smolinski
took the puck down the ice with
White behind him. Defenseman
Mark Sorensen was all alone and
dropped to block Smolinski's shot
but that allowed White to take a
clear shot and put the puck past
goalie Warren Sharples for the
game winner.
"That overtime goal was pinched
by the defenseman not having a
forward with him," Berenson said.
"He made a good play but he slid
into Sharples. It comes down to
that you can't give up two-on-ones
on overtime."
After that loss to Michigan
State, the Wolverines had one last1
chance to prove themselves to the
NCAA selection committee, the
consolation game against Bowling
Green who lost to Lake Superior
Michigan needed to rebound
both physically and mentally to
prove that they were deserving of a

EVANSTON- While many
people have spent time searching for
the fountain of youth, Michigan
wrestling coach Dale Bahr could
have used something to tack on a
few years to his team.
With six of their ten wrestlers
competing for the first time in the
conference championships, the
Wolverines finished a distant sixth at
the Big Ten tournament behind
