'M'fits right in

at PS U's circus

STATE COLLEGE - Last night, a circus-type
atmosphere prevailed in the land of the Nittany Lions.
Although the Lions are the youngest creatures in the
Big Ten jungle, they did not play like cubs.
The Penn State big top made a significant
contribution to the storyline. Penn State's Rec Hall
closely resemble Michigan's Central Campus Rec-
reation Building. Hideaway bleachers surrounding the
court along with an elevated track near the rafters add to
the claustrophobic feel.
"To me, this is fun because it's like high school,"
Jalen Rose said. "With the fans standing down on the
court, saying, 'You're gonna lose,' and telling you how
bad you are, It's great for me."
After the game, only those cheering the Wolverines
left the arena smiling.
At home, the Lions have not been winning often, as
their 1-5 home Big Ten record would indicate. Surely
the Wolverines expected to lunch on the young pups
and teach them the way of the wild.
"We came in knowing they play tough at home,"
Rose said. "We weren't surprised - they hadn't lost in
double digits before."
Unfortunately, no one was too surprised with the
way Penn State trimmed the Michigan lead from 19 to
11 late in the game. Although this is not new for the
Wolverines, there was a minimal level of concern.
Michigan's displays of audacity are now known
around these parts. The antics fit right in at Rec Hall.
The most blatant of these activities came three and a
half minutes into the second half.
After a sloppy Penn State play allowed Michigan
forward Ray Jackson to dribble close in on the basket
with no opposition, he decided to bounce the ball off the
backboard to an eager Chris Webber for a slam dunk.
"We do that stuff all the time in practice," Jackson
said. "We do that for ourselves and for all you guys to
keep the game interesting, because sometimes it can get
boring."

STATE COLLEGE - In a sea-
son with only one goal left - win-
ning the national championship -
the Michigan men's basketball team
is looking to improve in several
areas. Although its game last night at
Penn State reflected a lack of
progress in many of these facets, the
Wolverines did improve upon the
one factor it had to the most: the
result.
In front of an enthusiastic crowd,
Michigan (9-3 Big Ten, 20-4 over-
all) defeated the Nittany Lions, 80-
70, in a mostly unenthusiastic dis-
play of basketball.
"At times, at spots, I thought we
played pretty well," Michigan coach
Steve Fisher said. "One thing that
beat us in Indiana killed us again
tonight - we gave up way too many
second chances, way too many sec-
ond shots, way too many offensive
rebounds, especially as big and as
good as we are."
Indeed, at times Penn State coach
Bruce Parkhill, who had expressed
his fear of Michigan's massive size
days before the contest, seemed like
the Boy Who Cried Wolf. The
Nittany Lions (1-10, 6-14) outre-
bounded the Wolverines, 40-38, and
often managed to take three or four
shots in one trip down the court.
Nevertheless, Parkhill expressed
admiration for Michigan, which
made its first visit to Penn State
since the Nittany Lions joined the
Big Ten.
"They're a fabulous team,"
Parkhill said. "They're the most tal-
ented college team I've ever seen."
Although Penn State never led in
the contest, it never seemed com-
pletely out of it, either. The Wol-
verines led by as much as 73-54 at
the 14:14 mark of the second half,
but the Nittany Lions managed to
take advantage of sloppy Michigan
play and stay in the ballgame. Center
John Amaechi led his club with 18
points and 13 rebounds.
Forward Chris Webber paced the
Wolverines with 20 points, including
6-for-9 from the free-throw line.
Although he improved on his four-
for-il output from the charity stripe
Sunday at Indiana, he still expressed
frustration with his performance.
"I really won't be happy until I
make every free throw," he said.
"But I think everybody - me more

so than a lot of others - has to work
on their free-throw shooting."
"He shot a couple hundred on
Monday, and he shot a couple hun-
dred today," Fisher added. "So he'
knows what he has to do."
Webber provided the highlight of
the game at 3:30 of the second half
when he converted a Ray Jackson "
pass off the glass for one of the most
memorable alley-oops of the
Wolverines' season. The slam put
Michigan up, 50-38.
"We do that in practice all the
time," Webber said. "If we'd have
missed it, we'd have been out the
rest of the game."
Webber and his teammates have
dealt with antagonistic crowds all
year, but the Rec Hall fans provided
a unique challenge.
In a 6,846 -seat gymnasium that*
would remind Michigan students of,,
the Central Campus Recreation Buil-
ding, Penn State loyalists literally
stood right on the court and phy-
sically badgered players inbounding
the ball.
The noise often reached rock
concert-like levels, but as usual, the
Wolverines did not seem to be fazed
at all.
Jalen Rose (18), Ray Jackson"
(12), and Juwan Howard (10) each
contributed double figures in the

scoring department.

Sophomore Jalen Rose battles Penn State's Greg Bartram for a loose ball during last night's
game in State College. Rose scored 18 points and had six assist as Michigan held off a
charging Penn State squad, 80-70. The victory marked the 20th win for the Wolverines and
made it nine out of the last 10 seasons in which Michigan has reached the 20-victory mark.

Wrestlers rebound against Spartans, 28-12

by Paul Barg er
Daily Sports Writer
The Michigan wrestling team,
after dropping two straight matches
last weekend, rebounded with a
vengeance last night as it stormed
into East Lansing and defeated the
Spartans, 28-12.
Once again, the squad accom-
plished this feat without the services
of Sean Bormet. With this perform-
ance, the team raised its record to
12-5 overall and 6-4 in the Big Ten.
The Wolverines took an early
lead and built on throughout the con-
test. One-hundred eighteen-pound
Bryan Perkins came away with an
impressive 11-2 triumph and at 126,
Jason Cluff won by fall at 4:57.
"All in all, we were pleased with
our performance," Michigan coach
Dale Bahr said. "A lot of emphasis
was placed on the first few weight
classes, and we did really well
there."
After Mike Mihalic lost at 134,
James Rawls and Brian Harper had
convincing victories to give the
Wolverines a comfortable lead. Due
to this,, Bahr elected to keep the All-
American Bormet out. The junior

missed the Feb. 4 match against
Purdue under similar circumstances.
Mike Ellsworth was forced into
the 158-pound slot and performed
well but fell to ninth-ranked Dan
Wirnsberger by an 8-6 tally. That
performance was followed by a one-
point Chad Biggert victory at 167
pounds. Lanny Green, ranked fifth in
the nation, upped his record to 22-5
in defeating Michigan State's
Charles McDowell.
Bahr, in light of Jehad Hamdan's
knee injury, elected to forfeit the
190-pound matchup instead of
sending an unseasoned wrestler to
the mat against eighth-ranked Spar-
tan Emilio Collins. Hamdan is out
for the season with torn cartilage in
his right knee.
In the marquee matchup of the
evening, Michigan's eighth-ranked
heavyweight Steve King defeated
Michigan State's sixth-ranked Don
Whipp, 8-5, to complete the
Wolverines' team triumph.
The victory was overshadowed
by an obvious problem looming on
the horizon. With the Big Ten
championships a mere two weeks
away, the injury situation sticks out

like a sore thumb. Bormet's back is
not improving. Ellsworth did well in
his place, but it will be nearly im-
possible to duplicate Bormet's feats.
The Wolverines end their dual
meet season Saturday night as they

head to Wisconsin. The Badgers
carry a No. 10 ranking to the mat,
along with three wrestlers in the top
11. Hamdan's absence will be felt
once again. At 190, Wisconsin's
Keith Davison is ranked fifth in the
nation.

from staff reports
After falling just short of its goal
of an NCAA tournament bid last
season, the Michigan women's vol-
leyball team took its first step to-
ward bigger and better things by
signing two national recruits.
Shareen Luze and Erin Mc-
Govern, from Minnesota and Idaho,
respectively, are coach Greg Giova-
nazzi's first recruits of the season.
Luze, one of the top recruits in
the country, brings tremendous ex-
perience to the Wolverines. An out-
standing athlete who also lettered in
basketball and softball, Luze was
twice named MVP and all-confer-
ence at Richfield High School and
has competed extensively with her

club team, leading it all the way to
the national Junior Olympics.
"Shareen will help us with her
versatility," Giovanazzi said. "She
can play either right- or left-side
hitter, or can get the offense going as
setter."
McGovern similarly garnered.
two MVP awards at Sandpoint High
School, while earning selection to
the All-North Idaho team in both her
junior and senior seasons. Mc-,
Govern also made the Idaho Elite
League in both 1991 and 1992, when
she again earned MVP honors. Other
credentials on her impressive resume
include extensive club experience
and varsity letters in basketball and
golf.
