BASKETBALL NOTEBOOK

Fallen cagers
embraced at

Early timeout use
costly in final minute.
by Ken Davidoff
and Ken Sugiuray
Daily Basketball Writers.
NEW ORLEANS - In the wake of Chris Webber's decision to call a :7r
time-out when the Wolverines had none left, another sequence from earlier
in the gane gained significance. With 15:16 remaining in the contest,
Juwan Howard called for a time-out when he could not inbound the ball.
Only Jalen Rose stayed backcourt to help out Howard; Eric Riley, Jimmy'
King and Ray Jackson had all headed toward the basket.
"North Carolina put pressure on Jalen and two guys were pressuring.
him," Howard said. "The ref had a four count and I quickly called a time-
out."
The call proved to haunt Michigan worse than ever thought possible.
THE SUPERDOME'S THE PLACE: The 1982 NCAA title game in the
Superdome made a hero out of then-freshman Michael Jordan. In 1987, the
Superdome saw Indiana guard Keith Smart earn his place in basketball his-
tory with his game-winner in that NCAA championship.
And now, in 1993, North Carolina's Donald Williams has used they
Superdome floor as a launching pad to burst onto the national spotlight. The .
sophomore guard caned five of seven three-pointers in both Final Four con-
tests for 25 points against both semifinal foe Kansas and championship op-
ponent Michigan.
"His run in the last four games has been outstanding," said his coach
Dean Smith. "I'm impressed with him. He was in a different zone. I
thought he was going to make it every time he went up."
The heretofore-unknown Williams set three Final Four records for his
three-point proficiency.
His ten three-pointers in the two games bettered the old mark of nine
,shared by Steve Alford (Indiana, 1987) and Anderson Hunt (UNLV, EVAN PETRIF'Da
1990). Williams' 5-of-7 shooting for 71.4 percent set a championship game Wolverine forward Chris Webber recognizes the crowd's standing ovation

Crisler
by Ryan Herrington
Daily Basketball Writer
"Ninety-four. Ninety-four."
The chant reverberated through
Crisler Arena as approximately
2,500 Wolverine supporters greeted
the Michigan men's basketball team
that returned from New Orleans
yesterday, 15 hours after losing the
national championship game to
North Carolina, 77-71.
Jim Brandstatter greeted the joy-
ful crowd with praise and apprecia-
tion for the Wolverines.
"This is not a wake, it's a cele-
bration," Brandstatter said to a
hearty ovation as he introduced the
members of the Michigan team.
While the fans who turned out
for the rally cheered for all the
Wolverines, the largest applause
came when the former Michigan
football player announced the name
of All-American Chris Webber. It
was Webber who mistakenly called
for a time out with 11 seconds re-
maining when the squad had none
remaining, resulting in a technical
foul that sealed the Tar Heel
victory.
University President James Dud-
erstadt set the tone for the rally by
emphasizing the stellar accomplish-
ments Michigan has made in the last
two years.
"Life's tough when you're at the
top and this team met that challenge
and met the challenge of the pres-
sure generated by the sports press
and the media," he said. "When it
comes to spirit and character, we
should be very, very proud of this
team."
Seniors James Voskuil and Rob
Pelinka each spoke for a couple of

brally
minutes, thanking the fans and their
teammates for the memories they
gained over the course of their
Michigan careers. In addition to
Voskuil and Pelinka, Monday's loss
was the last college game for
Michael Talley, Eric Riley and Sean
Dobbins.
"Our spirits are obviously a little
down after the loss but this is really
the best way to get our spirits back
up and for us to get right back on
track," Voskuil said.
Michigan coach Steve Fisher
ended the ceremony by telling the
faithful to keep their chins up.
"Make sure you wear the maize
and blue with great pride," he said.
But the spotlight was taken by
Webber, who also thanked the
crowd for its support throughout the
season. A lock to be a NBA lottery
pick if he decided to turn pro, the
sophomore gave a hint to the crowd
that he might return to Ann Arbor in
the fall.
"As I said last year, next year
we'll be back."
When asked after the rally about
his status in terms of turning pro,
Webber said he was still weighing
all his options.
"Right now, yeah I'm coming
back," Webber said. "There are posi-
tives and negatives on both sides (of
turning pro). I'll just have to wait
and see."
Fisher also continued to praise
his team in a post-rally press confer-
ence.
"We think we have a group that
truly are champions," Fisher said.
"We didn't win on the scoreboard,
but we wouldn't trade this group for
any in the country."

Strugglng hitters face Eastern in

by Michael Rosenberg
Daily Sports Writer
Last Wednesday, the Michigan
baseball team was outhustled, out-
thought and outplayed by Eastern
Michigan. The game was marred by
poor Wolverine fielding and un-
timely hitting, and Michigan fell,
8-4.
The Wolverines (0-8 Big Ten, 5-
22 overall) get another shot at the

Eagles (13-7) today at 3 p.m. in Yp-
silanti. If Michigan is to avoid the
same result as a week ago, it will
have to play smarter baseball..
Eric Heintschel (1-3, 5.09,ERA)
will start for the Wolverines. He is
expected to throw approximately 50
pitches before giving way to sopho-
more Ron Hollis.
"I hope to get through four in-
nings before reaching 50,"

Heintschel said. "Hopefully I can do
that. I'm not real happy with being
1-3 right now, and I don't plan on
going 1-4."
Despite his high ERA and poor
record, Heintschel continues to be
the staff's ace. He has been the most
consistent pitcher the Wolverines
have.
Heintschel said he will not over-
look Eastern.

pSi today
"I have to treat this like it were
Ohio State, or Indiana, or any other
team," he said. "Last year I took it
easy against Western Michigan and I
gave up five runs in two innings."
As if Michigan's 5-22 record is
not bad enough news for Coach Bill
Freehan, the Wolverines may actu-
ally be getting worse as the season
progresses. The team has lost nine

could not believe!
More than Easter Bunnies and colored
eggs, Easter is the celebration of two
historical events, the death and the
resurrection of Jesus of Nazareth. We
believe Jesus died and rose again to
enable us to have a restored relationship
with God. Because of His resurrection
He offers forgiveness, peace with God,
and eternal life to those who accept this
freely offered gift.

If the resurrection of Jesus were a hoax,
a myth or a hallucination, faith in Christ
would be worthless and, as Paul the
Apostle said, "Christians of all people,
would be most pitied."
However, the resurrection of Jesus has
been well documented historically, and
provides strong reasons for each of us to
consider the truth of His claims for our life.
