"I think to a great extent this game is
a win-or-win option for us," Jarvis said,
mentioning that his squad would gain
invaluable experience taking on such a
highly-ranked team.
While the Wolverines preach respect
for their opponent, George Washington's
players suspect otherwise.
"I think there's a big chance Michi-
gan won't respect us," senior forward
and co-captain Bill Brigham said. "I
hope they look past us because if they
do they're going to be in a game for 40
If the Colonials do test the Wolver-
ines, their effort will have to begin with
Yinka Dare. Jarvis will place the 7'1"
center on Webber. Although he has not
faced anyone as nationally renowned as
Webber, the Nigerian said he did not
fear taking on the All-American.
"The only thing they can do to in-
timidate me is play harder than I do,"
Dare said. "I just have to try and stay
smart and not pick up any unnecessary
"We're hoping the big fella stays
with us for 40 minutes tomorrow,"
Brigham said.
The George Washington adminis-
tration played its own hand at evening
the odds, as itplacedanadin yesterday's

cal Washingtonians to take up the
Colonial's cause. "By George, we share

tion for the efforts of their school's
"It's a great thing," co-captain Soni
Holland said. "Everybody likes to cheer
for the underdog ... It's great we're
getting so much publicity."
Speaking of publicity, Webber's
much publicized hamstring pull seems

to be all right. Webber wore a rubber
knee support in practice, but he ap-
peared to be mobile, and he stressed his
readiness to play.
"It's going to take a lot more than
(this) injury to stop me from playing,"
Webber said.

Nevertheless, Webber and his fel-
low starters will likely need to rely on
the Michigan bench a little more. Jarvis
typically employs nine or 10 players a
game, and Fisher will have to counter-
act with fresh bodies of his own.
"Guys like myself, or Eric Riley, or
James Voskuil, one of us will have to
step forward and make a difference,"
Pelinka said. "As long as we keep giv-
ing Coach Fisher consistent play, he'll
keep going to us."
The winner of tonight's contest will
advance to the round of eight and take
on the winner of tonight's late game
between Vanderbilt and Temple.
The Kingdome may only be the site
of the next two games for most of the
Michigan players, but it has more sig-
nificance to Fisher and his fifth-year
seniors. In 1989, theWolverines walked
out of this building national champions.
"This ismy first trip back since'89,"
Fisher said. "When I was here the first
time I didn't have my credentials and
they had to get a security (guard) to
verify who I was. Things sure change in
a hurry. Coming back to this building
sure brings back alot of memories, all of
them positive."

The last event of the night was also
a good one for Michigan. The 400 med-
ley relay team of Royce Sharp, Eric
Wunderlich, Tom Hay and Gustavo
Borgesposteda3:11.51 toplacesecond
and break the school record by two
Stanford showed right from the start
that it was more than ready to defend its
title. In the morning preliminaries, the
Cardinal placed three swimmers in the
finals of the 50 freestyle, two in the 200
individual medley (IM) and earned the
top spot in the 200 freestyle relay.
In the finals, Stanford earned the
first40pointsof the night with a 1:17.78
in the 200 freestyle relay. It also capital-
ized on a second-place finish in the 200
IM. The Cardinal took third, fourth, and
eighth in the 50 freestyle and placed
first in the 400 medley relay to add to its
point total.
The 50 freestyle and 200 IM events
hurt Michigan. First, the Wolverines
only qualified one swimmer, Borges, in
the 50. Borges finished fifth in the 50,
just .01 out of fourth, and just .02 out of
third. Third and fourth in the event went
to Stanford's Bill Schell and Joe
Hudepohl, respectively.

In the 200 IM, all three Michigan
entrants were expected to do well. Bad
preliminary heats cost Michigan again
as Eric Namesnik and Sharp failed to
reach the championship finals:
Wunderlich placed seventh in the cham-
pionship final heat.
For Michigan, the day began wit
the realization in some events they were
clearly overmatched. In the first pre
liminary heat of the 200 freestyle relay,
the Wolverines watched UCLA shoot
out to a 1:17.94. This prompted
Urbanchek to pull his swimmers from
the event to rest them for later in the day
"It was an event that we weren't
going to score in anyway," Namesnik
"We gave up forty points right at th#
start to Stanford," Urbanchek said. "
didn't want to upset the 500 freestyleras
I think it will pay off in the long run."
Two records were set in last nights
competition. Florida'sGreg Burgess set
a U.S. Open and American Record i4
the 200 IM, and North Carolina State'
David Fox set an NCAA championship
meet record in the 50 freestyle.
"I really built the race at the swim
that I wanted to set," Burgess said. "I
didn't panic when I was behind after the
fly leg. I really broke out and swam the
breast leg hard - the rest of the race fe4
into place from there. Overall, I'm very
pleased with the swim."

Last Year
We Achieved Sales of $60 Billion,
Increased Our Commercial Services
Business By 40%, and Spent $9 Billion
on Developing The Next Generation
of Information Products.
Imagine What We Could
Do In A Good Year.
Take a good look at IBM. A look at the
facts instead of the furor. And what you'll see
is one of the most solid, dynamic companies
the world has ever known.
Last year alone our growth in commercial
services was four times the industry average.
Our patent portfolio has grown to 30,000
patents worldwide-by far the industry's
largest. And our $6.5 billion research and
development budget is a full three times the
size of our nearest U.S. competitor.
All of which means that few computer
companies anywhere can offer you the
excitement or the possibilities of IBM. And
that the world's biggest computer company is
still home to some of the world's biggest
