The Washington, D.C. areahas long
been a hotbed for college basketball.
John Thomspson established his
Georgetown Hoyas as a force a long
time ago. The Maryland Terrapins, al-
though not always the most successful
squad, reside in the powerful Atlantic
Coast Conference. Even Howard Uni-
versity sneaked into the NCAA tour-
nament last year.
As for George Washington Univer-
sity, well, it has long served as living
proof that there is absolutely no corre-
lation between proximity to the White
House and a quality basketball team.

victory over fellow underdog South-
ern, GWU now finds itself headed to
Seattle to take on the top-seed Wolver-
ines Friday night at 8:05 pim. EST.
Colonials coach Mike Jarvis has a
history of taking over and reviving
decrepit programs. At Cambridge
Ringe & Latin High School in Massa-
chusetts, he nurtured such future stars
asPaurickEwingandRumealRobinson
while compiling a 143-21 mark. He
then moved to the college forum with
the Boston University Terriers, post-
ing a 101-51 record and taking his

gone 56-32. His resumd has earned him
much respect within the coaching fra-
ternity.
"Mike Jarvis, I've known him for
some time," Fisher said. "He's been
successful everywhere he'sbeen. I don't
think it's a surprise to people who know
Jarvis that they're winning."
Jarvis scored amajorrecruiting coup
with the acquisition ofYinkaDare, a 7-
foot-l rookie center from Kabba, Nige-
ria. Dare, honored as the Atlantic 10

third year of organized basketball.
"Every one ofus would like to have
a find like Dare," Fisher said. "He's
going to be a great player. He's an
intimidator at the moment and gives
them a force in the middle."
AlthoughDare has received the lion's
share of attention, the Colonials can be
consideredanything butaone-man team.

Following its loss in the CCHA semi-
finals, the Michigan hockey team was
unsure of what seed it would be given
for the NCAA tournament. Last year,
the Wolverines fell to Lake Superior in
the conference final and still earned a
No. l seed in the West Region.
Despite thedefeatthis season, Michi-
gan was awarded the No. 2 seed in the
West, one spot ahead of regular-season
champion Miami.
According to many Wolverines, the
selection committee's choices were pre-
dictable.
"I was happy, but not surprised,"
Michigan forward Cam Stewart said.
"It would not have bothered me if we
had to play two games. It would have
given us some momentum."
The biggest surprise of the 12 teams
was the selection of four squads from
the Western Collegiate Hockey Asso-
ciation (WCHA)-Minnesota-Duluth,
the regular-season winner, Minnesota,
the post-season champion, Wisconsin
and Northern Michigan.
The CCHA is widely regarded by
coaches as the top conference in college
hockey, and Michigan coach Red
Berenson expressed his amazement at
the selection committee's choices.
"I was surprised more than disap-
pointed,"Michigancoach Red Berenson
said. "I felt all season long we had three
strong teams and one knocking on the
door. I have been through all that with
my team (In 1990, Bowling Green re-
ceived a bid instead of the Wolverines.).
It is not a perfect system and never will
be. It seems to be handled from outside
the hockey world."

Berenson's last statement refers to
the fact that Friday's game between
Miami and Wisconsin, a bigger draw
than the second contest with Minne-
sota-Duluth and Brown, will be played
at 5 p.m. instead of in prime time three
hours later.
Last season, three CCHA clubs
(Michigan, Michigan State and cham-
pion Lake Superior) made their way to
the NCAA semifinals. Michigan winger
David Oliver said a repeat of that occur-
rence would not have bothered him.
"We did not think that Michigan
State was going tomake it," Oliversaid.
"It would have been nice to have three
(in theFinal Four) like we did lastyear."
Wisconsin coach Jeff Sauer was
more than happy with the selections.
"The teams we expected to get in
before the post-season tournament got
in," Sauer said. "I thought each league
(WCHA, CCHA, ECAC and Hockey
East) would get three teams. I was sur-
prised Northern got in, but I'm pleased
for the league."
THANKSGIVING EXTRAVA-
GANZA: CCHAmembersMichiganand

header matchups Nov. 26-27 1993.
Michigan will host this year's games at
The Palace of Auburn Hills. This will
mark the beginning of a four-year con-
tract between the schools.
"Itwasus and Wisconsin that wanted
to get a series together," Berenson said.
"It made sense. It will be a great college
hockey expos6. It should hit a lot of
college hockey fans in this .rea."

Jalen Rose lays one in against Iowa's Acie Earl earlier this season. Rose
and his Wolverine teammates take on George Washington Friday in the
third round of the NCAA basketball tournament.

Brigham, who transferred from Boston
University with Jarvis, and Sonni Hol-
land round out the starting lineup.
Jarvis goes to his bench early and
often. Juniors Omo Moses and Marcus
Ford, sophomores Nimbo Hammons
and Antoine Hart and frosh Vaughn
Jones and Kwame Evans can all expect

playing time.
Jarvis stressed thathisplayersmust
perform over their heads in order to
challenge the Wolverines.
"I think we'regoing tohave to play
the game of our life," Jarvis said.
'We're going to have to play the al-
most-perfect basketball game."

WRESTLING NOTEBOOK
Hawkeyes piece together national championship

by Michael Rosenberg
Daily Sports Writer
AMES, Iowa - The motto for the 1993 NCAA champion Iowa Hawkeyes
should be "some assembly required."
Iowa coach Dan Gable has won 12 national titles in his 19 years at the helm,
but none ofhis championship teams was put together quite like this year's edition.
Gable brought in 177-pounder RayBrinzer, who transferred from Oklahoma
State. Brinzer did not wrestle at all this year until the Big Ten championships. He
made All-American.
Gable also moved Troy Steiner, a 1992 national champion at 142 pounds,

down to 134 to make room for freshman Lincoln McIlravy. Steiner lost in this
year's semifinals to Penn State's Cary Kolat. Mcllravy won the title at 142.
"I am extremely proud of this team as proud as I have ever been abouta team,"
Gable said. "I don't think it is as good as some of our teams in previous years, but
it really came together well."
LASSOING COWBOYS: When Oklahoma State went on probation, coaches
around the nation scrambled to sign Cowboys who wanted to transfer. In addition
to Brinzer, T. J. Jaworsky (North Carolina), Tony Purler (Nebraska), Kyle
Rackley (Cornell), and Jodie Wilson (Iowa State) switched schools. If those
wrestlers were a team, they would have placed fourth.
HEY!'AREN'T YOU CASEY STENGEL'S ILLEGITIMATE SON?: After one of
his matches, 150-pounder Joe Burke of Seton Hall offered this gem to the media:
"Never eat burning lettuce." Thanks for the advice, Joe. Don't forget to take your
medication.
THIS IS DEEP: Illinois' Joe Marianetti took the philosophical approach after
he was knocked out. "There's a time in every man's life, more or less sad, more
or less distant, when one realizes that he is truly human," Marianetti said.

SWIMMING NOTEBOOK

Foreigners highlight list
of NCAA top medalists

by Charlie Breitrose
Daily Sports Writer
MINNEAPOLIS - There is a for-
eign invasions of sorts in women's col-
lege swimming, and Michigan is one of
the main culprits.
Three Wolverines from outside the
United States tallied points this year -
Lara Hooiveld (Australia), Kirsten
Silvester (the Netherlands) and Tara
Higgins (Canada).

Hooiveld, who won the 100- and
200-yardbreaststrokessaidshewanted
aplace where she could train and study
simultaneously.
"I was going to college (in Brisbane,
Australia) and trying to combine my
training as well," Hooiveld said. "We
don't have a collegiate program (in
Australia)."
Michigancoach Jim Richardson said
he thinks U.S. colleges provide a good
opportunity forforeign swimmers look-
ing for places to train.
"(Foreign swimmers) get to con-
tinue developing their sport while they
get an education," he said. "They don't
have that system in Europe."
The foreign swimmers aren't the
only ones who benefit. Their teammates
benefit as well.
"If you bring in a foreign athlete

who's very gifted, that will help your
athletes who are up for the challenge,"
Richardson said.
Southern Methodist was another
team that utilized the talents of foreign
swimmers toagreatextent. Gitta Jensen
(Denmark), Sandra Cam (Belgium)
and Berit Pugaard (Denmark) all con-
tributed to the Mustangs' fourth-place
finish.
LUCKY TO BE SICK: Michigan's
two-event winner Hooiveld said that
one thing that may have aided in her
victories in the 100 and 200 breast-
strokes was her illness a week before
the NCAAs.
"I think I got a little more rest be-
cause of (my illness)," Hooiveld said.
"It may have benefited my taper. It
certainly benefited my 100 (breast)."
THAT WAS EASY: Coming into the

NCAA championships the Stanford
women were considered the No.2 team
by the coaches. However, when the
NCAA meet was over, not only was
Stanford the champion, but it had
eclipsed second-place Florida's score
of 421 points by 228 points.
This surprised even Stanford head
coach Richard Quick.
"I thought it would be amuch closer
meet," Quick said. "It wouldn't have
surprised me if it had come down to the
last relay."
SORRY,LONGHORNS: Forthefirst
time since 1982, the inaugural year of
the women's NCAAs, the Texas Long-
horns failed to win a single event.
Twice Texas came within a blink of
an eye of claiming the championship in
anevent.The1650freestyle came down
to the final length. Longhorn Tobie
Smith was passed within the final ten
yards to lose by less than a second in the
16-minute event.
Even closer than the 1650 was the
200breaststroke,whereMichigan'sown
Hooiveld came back to out-touch Texas
swimmer Lydia Morrow by .03 sec-
onds.
MORE STANFORD DOMINATION:
Stanford tied the record of most events
wonby ateaminasingle championship
with 13, whichFloridaaccomplishedit
in 1988.
