Christian Laettner and Grant Hill teamed
up to halt Michigan's fabulous run in the.
tournament, and to give the Blue Devils their
second consecutive championship banner.
They are the first team to repeat since;
UCLA did it in 1973.
Laettner shook off a horrid first half to
help close out his stellar career with a 19-
point performance. Grant Hill chipped in 18
points and grabbed 10 rebounds, while;
Thomas Hill scored 16.
Chris Webber led the Wolverines with 14
points and a game-high 11 boards.
"Coach (Mike Krzyzweski) just chal-
lenged us at halftime to play better," Grant
Hill said of the second-half turnaround. "We
just tried to come and play hard. I'm just so
happy we came through in the stretch."
Laettner headed to the lockerroom at half-
time with just five points on two-for-8 shoot-
ing and seven turnovers.

Four Democrats - including one
student - swept city elections yes-
terday, increasing the Ann Arbor
City Council's Democratic majority
Only one Republican earned a
* majority of votes.
Democrats said the victories were
- said his goal, as a member of a
weak minority, is to "try and get a
forum to get our point across to the
Democrat caucus," he said.
"Basically, they can do anything
they want now."
He said he and Councilmember
Kirk Dodge (R-2nd Ward), who was
elected last year, will accomplish
most by "paying attention to them
and getting them to listen to us ...
my age is as young as it is," Nicolas
said. "It wasn't an easy campaign to
win, but I just had to work hard and
not take the voters for granted."
The victory was even more sur-
prising because the 4th Ward has
consistently elected Republicans in
April elections. Many considered re-
cent redistricting to have made the
ward even more Republican, but
Nicolas said this did not matter.
