Today marks the 200th anniversary of the Bill of Rights, which se-
cured perhaps our most precious freedoms. Adopted as the first 10
amendments to our Constitution, the Bill of Rights was far from per-
fect; it did nothing, for example, to extend liberty to slaves and women,
who were denied basic rights for many more years. For them, the 13th
and 19th Amendments were equally, if not more, important than the

Hurley's free throws win it in OT, 88-85

Ann Arbor, Michigan - Sunday, December 15, 1991
It almost happened in Ann Arbor.
The raw talent of a young Michigan basketball team
forced Duke, the reigning national champions, into an
overtime dual and almost shocked the world (again) in
an 88-85 loss.
"At Michiganyou don't have moral victories. We
felt we could beat Duke," Wolverine coach Steve
Fisher said. "I knew we would have to play very well,
maybe catch a break, but we felt that, especially at
home, we could beat Duke."
After trailing by as much as 17 in the first half,
Michigan started the second half with a 24-13 spurt.
The Wolverines went from 10 points down at halftime
to a 57-56 lead with 8:11 left in the game. Duke went
scoreless for 6:22 during that stretch.
"I don't want to come up here and say we were hor-
rible. When we were bad, Michigan made us look bad,"
Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski said. "In pressure situa-
tions, they did not wilt."
Rookie Chris Webber scored 12 of his 27 points to
spur the comeback. Webber outperformed Duke's cele-
brated inside force, center Christian Laettner, who fin-
ished with 24 points and eight rebounds.
Krzyzewski, who recruited Webber intensely, loved
what he saw.
"Chris was outstanding," Krzyzewski said.
"Forget about 'Is he one of the top freshmen?' because
he's just one of the top players. He's beyond his years."
Even in victory, the Blue Devils acknowledged the
"I think this Michigan team is one of national
championship-caliber," Duke forward Brian Davis said.
"We could have easily lost this game today."
The Blue Devils' know-how turned out to be the de-
ciding factor in the game. After being fouled behind the
three-point line, point guard Bobby Hurley (26 points,
seven assists) sank all three free throws to send the
game into overtime tied at 76-76.
Hurley continued his free-throw accuracy in the ex-
tra period, scoring the last four points of the game
from the line. Duke sank 10 of 10 free throws in over-
"At first I think everybody was a little shocked
about how they came at us at the end. But we felt a
sense of urgency out there," Hurley said. "We had to

make some big things happen, and I think we did that.
We got some steals, and got us in a position to win.".
After the game, the players in the Michigan locker-
room were noticeably quiet, but their spirits were in-
"Duke is the number one team in the country,''
guard Jalen Rose said. "But a couple of plays here, a
couple of plays there, and we would have won."
Held scoreless with three fouls in the first half,
Rose emerged from the intermission to score 18 points.

NEW YORK - Last night's announcement of
Michigan wide receiver Desmond Howard as the 1991
Heisman Trophy winner was essentially a foregone
conclusion, a formality to wrap up Howard's record-
Some four months ago, though, Howard was
missing from the annual football yearbooks' preseason
award predictions. Defending Heisman winner Ty
Detmer loomed as the favorite to repeat, with expected
contention from Florida State quarterback Casey
Weldon and Michigan State running back Tico Duckett.
Their preseason hype matched
Phil the predictions. Detmer ended up
on the cover of Brigham Young's
media guide, and the Duckett Dock-
ett, a Michigan State public rela-
tions release, tried to highlight
Duckett's weekly accomplish-
During the summer, everybody
knew the Wolverine offense would
be explosive. But this was Michi-
gan - no individual stars.
The Wolverine receiver for the1
Heisman? Absurd. Preposterous.
If anybody had a shot, it would
have to be the Wolverine tailback.
After all, Michigan was in the Big Ten, home of three
yards and a cloud of dust.
But while most of the country ignored Howard,
Wolverine fans in Ann Arbor and across America knew
his penchant for the big play. They had seen it against
Michigan State, Oct. 13, 1990, with his 95-yard, fourth-
quarter touchdown kickoff return.
Although the Spartans squeaked out a one-point
victory on that day, Michigan fans knew they had a star
in the making. Howard reminded many of Notre
Dame's Rocket, except Howard wasn't just a great
returner - he was a great receiver, too.
"He's an athlete. He could do it all, with a
basketball or a football," Howard's high school coach
Bill Gutbord said from the Downtown Athletic Club
yesterday. "His hands and timing were amazing."
Howard jumped onto the scene in a hurry this year.
With his 93-yard touchdown kickoff return and three
scoring grabs against Boston College, Howard gave
himself instant national exposure. His dramatic
fourth-and-one lunging touchdown reception to seal
Michigan's victory over Notre Dame launched him

The Michigan hockey team heads
into the holiday break on a cheery
note, courtesy of a 7-2 victory over
Western Michigan last night. After
a hard-fought 5-5 tie Friday evening,
both teams laced up their skates yes-
terday determined to win the next
contest. But Michigan prevailed.
Friday night's scoring came in
streaks: Michigan scored the first
three goals, Western countered with
two, the Wolverines echoed with
another pair, and then the Broncos
scored three unanswered goals to es-
cape with the tie. Last night, how-
ever, was all Michigan.
"I thought tonight was more
typical of our team," Wolverine
coach Red Berenson said. "All of
our lines were clicking; it was good
to see (Mike) Stone get one and
(Mike) Helber. We need to keep
getting the balanced play.... Our
power play was more deadly, and
our penalty killing was a lot better
tonight as well."
Stone's first goal of the 1991-92
campaign, a breakaway set up by
Helber, opened the scoring at the
2:22 mark of the first period.
A power play goal by David
Roberts, followed by a goal from
Denny Felsner 10 minutes later, put
the Wolverines up by three 12 min-
utes into the first period - a
minute quicker than the night
"It seems like we always start
bad right now," Western defense-
man Andy Suhy said. "We really
need to focus on playing 60 minutes,
not start playing in the third
When Bronco Colin Ward scored
his CCHA-leading ninth power
play goal, it seemed that WMU
might work some comeback magic
But by the time Keith Jones
scored WMU's second goal at the
9:16 mark of the third period,
Wolverines Brian Wiseman, Helber,
and David Oliver had all scored to
dispel any comeback notion the
Broncos might have had. Felsner
capped the Michigan scoring with a
power play goal with 5:27 left in
In the last -10 minutes of the
game the Broncos committed five
penalties for 31 minutes, including
10-minute game misconducts for
Broncos Jones and Suhy.

Daily Football Writer;
Michigan football coach Gary Moeller sat
on the hardwood at Crisler Arena watching,
wide receiver Desmond Howard accept the
Heisman Trophy yesterday.
He was about to praise Howard on national
television, but the ecstatic crowd behind him,,
watching the ceremony on Crisler's wide-,
screen televisions, precluded Moeller's ap-
pearance on NBC.
However, Moeller spoke after the presen-
tation, and his words were complimentary.
"I think it's a very-special day and year in
the history of Michigan football," Moeller
said. "I am relieved, happy, and proud for
Desmond and for the University. But I'm glad,
it's over with."1
All season, Moeller had been wary of the
attention the Heisman race had placed upon
Howard. But yesterday, the smiling coach con-
ceded the hype may have worked to Howard's
"If it would have hurt his play, it would
have been a bad award," Moeller said. "In this
case, I think it motivated him to a higher level
Also on hand at Crisler was Michigan
linebacker Erick Anderson, winner of this
year's Butkus Award. Anderson appreciated
Howard's acceptance speech, in which he dedi-
cated the trophy to all of his teammates.
"He deserves all the credit for the award,"
Anderson said. "But to hear him speak, it gives
us a feeling that we had a little bit to do with
