Jcers slam
by Dan Zoch
Daily Hockey Writer
The amount of violence in this weekend's
series with Western Michigan almost esca-
lated to mob rule. Friday's game was rough,
but the penalty box on Saturday had less
room in it than the aisles at a New Kids on
the Block concert.
"In every game we have with Western,
ere's a lot of sticking going on," sopho-
more defender Patrick Neaton said. "And
there's a lot of grabbing and punching, too.
They're very persistent."
Coming into this weekend's series with
Western Michigan, the Michigan hockey
team needed a sweep to stay in striking dis-

i Western
tance of first-place Lake Superior. And that's
just what they did, taking out the Broncos, 6-
2, in Kalamazoo Friday night and coming
home to Yost and a 7-4 victory Saturday.
Michigan (12-4-2 overall, 11-3-2 CCHA)
moves into sole possession of second place
while Western Michigan (7-9-2, 6-8-2) holds
at fifth place in the CCHA.
The Wolverines played solid defense in
both contests due, in part, to excellent goal-
tending. Rookie goaltender Chris Gordon, af-
ter playing well in Boston last week, earned
the start on Friday night and Steve Shields
started in the net Saturday.
Western held the Wolverines to a draw af-.
ter two periods Friday night before Michigan
exploded in the third period. Amidst a slew of
penalties and near brawls, Michigan scored
four goals in the third frame to give them the
6-2 victory.
The turning point in the game came at
5:20 in the third when left winger Cam
Stewart's goal put the Wolverines in the lead.
"Stewart's goal was a good shift in the
game," Berenson said. "It was a turning point
for the team."
Junior Mike Helber, playing in his sev-
enth game, notched two of the Wolverines'
goals to lead the team in scoring. Other
strong offensive performances came from
first-year center Brian Wiseman and senior co-
captain Don Stone.
Saturday's game made Friday look like a
pillow fight. Compared to the 22 penalties
Friday, there were a total of 46 penalties be-
tween the two teams the next night. At one
point, there were five Wolverines and four
Broncos shoved into the penalty box.
The game resulted in disqualifications for
Michigan's Cam Stewart and Western's Brad
Dawson for fighting in the last minute of the
game. Both players will sit out next Friday's
"There were a lot of unnecessary penalties
on both sides," Berenson said. "It was a very
physical game."
It was so physical, in fact, that Michigan

DURHAM, N.C. - Michigan
knew it wasn't welcome at
Cameron Indoor Stadium when its
basketball coach was announced as
"Bill" Fisher.
It was a bill Duke made the
Wolverines pay, as the Blue
Devils claimed a 75-68 victory
Duke's pressure defense threw a
wrench into Michigan's first half
offense, holding the-Wolverines
(3-1) to 28 points before the
break. Michigan committed 15
turnovers in the half, while shoot-
ing 38 percent from the field.
"I felt in the first half in par-
ticular, Duke's pressure would not
allow us to do anything," (Steve)
Fisher said. "It was hard to deci-
pher what we were trying to do."
The Blue Devils' defense,
combined with their 67 percent
shooting, propelled No. 6 Duke
(6-2) to a 45-28 halftime lead.
Michigan never erased the deficit.
Duke guard Bill McCaffrey tal-
lied nine points in as many min-
utes to build the advantage, but
left the game with 6:29 remaining
in the first half with a second-de-
gree foot sprain.
"McCaffrey's spurt there in the
first half gave us that working
margin," Duke coach Mike
Krzyzewski said. "That margin
helped us toward the end, when

Easy as 1-2-3. Such was the case for the
Michigan wrestling team Saturday afternoon.
Coach Dale Bahr expected his team to
sweep the quad meet, and the Wolverines
'dn't fail their coach. They defeated Eastern
ichigan (35-10), Ferris State (24-12), and
Toledo (30-6), to win their first three dual
meets of the season.
Despite winning each match rather easily,
the Wolverines seemed to be somewhat af-
fected by fatigue.
"We looked a little tired," Bahr said.
"Coming off of last week's tournament, and
then working real hard this week, they just
looked like they were worn down a little bit."

The Michigan men's swimming
team made the most of its return to
Canham Natatorium this weekend,
*winning the Michigan Invitational
by more than 350 points with a total
of 1306.4 points.
After two days of competition, it
looked like it was going to be a
much closer match. Michigan held a
slim lead over Michigan State going
into yesterday's final session, but ??
took first place in four events, sec
ond place in five and third in two to
seal the victory. Michigan State

people come here."
Senior Glenn Coleman, the annual
Air Force ROTC member known as
"baskethead" for his headdress, offered an
experienced analysis of the crowd.
"A lot depends on national TV," he
said. "People get fired up when they see
the trucks. In most places the alumni sit
on the bottom, but the students around
the bottom is what makes this place so
One hour before game time Saturday,
the student section was full and the
games began. While the band livened up
the crowd with "Devil with a Blue Dress

On," "Rock Lobster," and "Gimme Some
Lovin," a cross-court tennis ball war
ensued. During the television pregame
show, ABC's new announcers, Brent
Musberger and Jim Valvano, felt the
students' wrath.
"YOU BOTH GOT FIRED," the fans
loudly chanted, referring to each man's
recent job misfortune. For Valvano, the
former North Carolina St. coach, it got
worse, with everybody's favorite cheer,
During introductions, the fans treated
Michigan rather amiably. They politely

Women cagers drop
second straight, 75-66

Youngstown State's mascots,
Pete and Penny Penguin, must have
considered this trip up from the
Antarctic worthwhile. Saturday
evening, the Michigan women's
basketball team lost its second con-
secutive game, falling to the
Youngstown State Penguins, 75-66.
The victory was the 200th in the
history of Youngstown State's
women's team.
Michigan's loss marks the first
time in three trips this year to the
Buckeye state that the Wolverines
have failed to come out with a
In a contest reminiscent of
Thursday's loss versus Central
Michigan, the Wolverines played
mistake-filled basketball - marked
by 24 turnovers - and the Penguins
capitalized for the victory.
"The most disappointing element
of tonight's game is that we were

lay-in with 3:03 left. But the
Wolverines were hurt by fouls and
missed shots down the stretch as
Youngstown State went on a 9-2 run
to close the game.
Youngstown was led by Margaret
Somple's 23 points and nine re-
bounds, while Diane Rappach
chipped in 14 points, dished out nine
assists, and made seven steals. In all,
the Penguins' balanced attack placed
five players in the scoring column
with double-digits.
"Our confidence is at an ex-
tremely low point right now,"
VanDeWege said. "We played well
early into the season, but the last
two games have been
Char Durand paced Michigan
with a double-double of 13 points
and ten rebounds.
Both teams were cold from the
free throw line, as Michigan missed
