The Detroit Lions will send a
number of standouts to Crisler Arena
tonight to face current Michigan ath-
letes for what promises to be an in-
teresting evening.
This "Superstar Challenge" will
not be a typical NFL contest. It will
feature the stars competing in seven
events - volleyball, relay races,
three-point basketball shootouts, sit-
ups, three-on-three touch football,
five-on-five basketball and a slam
dunk competition.
Detroit Lions Barry Sanders,
Jerry Ball, Lomas Brown, Willie
Green and William White are sched-
uled to appear. Michigan will
counter with football players Ricky
Powers, Elvis Grbac and Burnie
Legette, basketball team members
Chris Webber, Freddie Hunter, Kirk
Taylor, Chip Armer and Trish

Andrew, baseball outfielder Steve
Buerkel and swimmers Lisa
Anderson and Mindy Gehrs.
This program, handled by Pro
Challenge, has taken many Lions
and other pro athletes into schools in
Michigan and Ohio with a special
itinerary.
The program, which is primarily
targeted at high-school age students,
pits the pros against the top athletes
from each school they visit in a
number of Olympic-type events.
Between events, the pros take the
microphone to tackle some of the
critical issues which confront youth
each day.
The competition begins at 7:30
p.m., and tickets are available for
$2.00. All proceeds will go to
Athletes in Action, the Fellowship of
Christian Athletes and Pro
Challenge.

again, 3=1
DETROIT (AP) - Juan
Guzman matched his career high
with 10 strikeouts and. Dave
Winfield hit his first home run for
Toronto, leading the Blue Jays over
the Detroit Tigers 3-1 Thursday for
a three-game sweep.
Guzman, who was 10-3 last sea-
son, allowed three hits in seven in-
nings and walked four. Tim Henke
pitched a one-hit eighth and Duane
Ward pitched a perfect ninth for his
second save.
Walt Terrell, 12-14 in 1991, al-
lowed all three runs and six hits in 8
1-3 innings.
Detroit's Tony Phillips was
ejec-ted in the ninth by home plate
umpire Tim Welke for arguing.
Kelly Gruber's two-out homer
in the first put Toronto ahead.
Detroit loaded the bases in the
bottom of the inning with one out,
but Guzman struck out Mickey
Tettleton and Phillips. The Tigers
then tied the score in the second
when Mark Carreon led off with his
first American League home run.
Toronto took the lead in the
sixth when Devon White walked,
stole second was sacrificed to third

Kelly Gruber's sacrifice fly.

Balance leads to lacrosse victory

by Chad Safran
Daily Sports Writer
Balanced scoring has been a
lem for Michigan lacrosse coach
Bob DiGiovanni all season. Relying
on one or two players has frequently
slowed the Wolverine attack. On
Wednesday night, the scales evened
out as Michigan (11-7 overall)
played one of its top games this sea-
son in its 19-2 defeat of Northwood
Institute, a first-year, division three
varsity team.
Of the 20 attack playprs who saw
*action, sixteen scored points (goals
or assists) and 13 of them had goals.
Attackman Will Clyde, who was re-
turning from bruised ribs that held
him out of a weekend tournament,
led the way for the Wolverines with
a goal and seven assists. Midfielder
Ranjiv Advani was the game's top
goal scorer tallying three. Fellow
midfielder Andy Tumpowsky added
two goals and an assist, as did at-
* tackman Doug Henke.
"A lot of guys owe a lot of goals
to (Clyde)," DiGiovanni said. "It is
always easier to play when you have
a good assist man like Will on your
team.

"The basics were there. We had
some fun in the game. A lot of peo-
ple got playing time."
The Wolverines were coming off
a weekend in which they managed to
take three of their five games at the
University of Pittsburgh Invitational
tournament.
On Saturday, Michigan defeated
Carengie Mellon 6-1, followed by an
8-7 victory over the Hokies of
Virginia Tech. The day's third game
matched Michigan against Fordham.
The Wolverines were up 7-3 before
the Rams countered with five
unanswered goals for an 8-7 come-
back victory.
"The Fordham game really hurt,"
DiGiovanni said. "We played or best
lacrosse of the season for the first
three quarters before we collapsed."
The Wolverines defeated Carne-
gie Mellon once again Sunday, 11-0.

But they could not pull off a repeat
performance against the Hokies, as
Michigan fell 9-4.
With Wednesday's victory, the
Wolverines have captured eight of
their last 10 games and are starting
to gel.
"We have really progressed this
season," DiGiovanni said. "It has re-
ally been two different seasons. For
the first five games of the season I
would have given us a D'. Now
we're playing like an 'A' team."
The team will have a week off
from game action before it travels to
Northwestern next weekend. In
Evanston, the Wolverines will try to
win their third consecutive Big Ten
Club Lacrosse Championship. Mich-
igan is looking at another title op-
timistically, especially after sweep-
ing to victory in the Eastern Division
tourney two weeks ago.

A wide-eyed Barry Sanders scans the field for oncoming defenders. He
won't have to look far for competition at tonight's Superstar Challenge.
