out of Action, 109-102

AUBURN HILLS - Michigan
State might win the Big Ten for the
second straight year, but the
Wolverines did something the
Spartans couldn't - beat Athletes in
AIA, who defeated MSU a week
earlier, lost to Michigan last
Wednesday, 109-102, before 7,229 at
the Palace. The victory was the
second for the Wolverines in their
brief exhibition season.
Michigan jumped out to a 17-10
lead on the three-point shooting of
guards Demetrius Calip and Tony
Tolbert, before falling behind by
seven midway through the first half.
"We've got a team that can score
some points," Michigan coach Steve
Fisher said. "The thing that
disappointed me was when we were
up 17-10, they went on a run to take
the lead. We still continued at that
same pace of run, two passes, and a
shot. When they tied it at nineteen,
we should have found a way to get
Eric Riley the ball five or six times
in a row and we didn't do a very
good job of that."
The Wolverines retook the lead,
33-32, on a Calip breakaway lay-up.
The senior captain had 21 points in
the first-half and finished the game
leading all scorers with 26, including
four of five from beyond the three-
The lead batted back and forth
throughout the rest of the half. But
Michigan center Eric Riley came out
strong to open the second half and
put the Wolverines out in front, 71-
63, before commiting his fourth
AIA ran out of gas and couldn't
come back. It was AIA's third game
in as many nights, and Michigan's
run-and-gun offense took its toll.
"Normally, we don't use that as
an excuse, but we were pretty tired
tonight," AIA player/coach Lorenzo
Romar said. "They're really quick
with the three guards, and with the
perimeter shooting, you've got to be
out on them."

"They (Michigan) are not bad,"
Romar said. "They got the big guy
(Riley) in the middle who was really
consistent tonight, and they had the
three-point shooters out there."
Riley finished with 25 points and
10 rebounds. Tolbert scored 20, and
senior Kirk Taylor added 19. But
Taylor's knee, which he injured two
years ago, is still bothering him. He
had to miss two days of practice last
"I feel as though I'm playing at
about 80 percent," Taylor said. "It's
coming along real gradual and I feel
that I'll be 100 percent before the

due to credit problems. Armer is
waiting for credit to transfer from
West Point. Hunter has to find out
what his eligiblity is. Hunter has
junior standing academically, but
this is his fourth year at Michigan.
Some of those semesters he was
only a part-time student.

"I'm thinking (the NCAA) is just
going to stamp them and say, 'O.K.,
go play,"' Fisher said.

FALL RECRUITING ENDS:
Michigan signed three players during
the fall signing week including
Juwan Howard, Jimmy King, and
Ray Jackson. The Wolverines still
have three scholarships left.
"We're happy. We got three good
players, who are good kids who will
help this basketball program,"
Fisher said. "We'd like to get
another player or two, but if we
don't, we'll still consider this a very
productive recruiting year for us."
"WE CUT HAIR TO PLEASE."
