"Plus, they not only cut the recruit-
ing coordinator, but they also cut the
number of times you can actually go
out and evaluate. So how can you do as
good a job with less people? It isn't
going to be just football that's going to
hurt. Everyone is going to hurt. The
golf team is going to suffer because of
However, if the recent trend contin-
ues, the new recruiting class might be
tappedtoplayearlierthan normal. Three
years ago, only two true freshmen saw
real-game action. Last year, the num-
ber rose to eight. Moeller says this will
only continue in the future.
Moeller felt he could have given
out two more scholarships but that it
might come back to hurt him in future
"I'm going to sound like the presi-
dent, but (using two more scholarships)
is deficit spending in my opinion,"
Moeller said. "If I just sign someone
today to fill up, then you hurt yourself
next year."
CAMERON TO GO PRO?: With all the
talk about Tyrone Wheatley going pro
or not, there is a new rumor on a Wol-
verine jumping to the NFL. With the
Washington Redskins hiring Norv
Turner as head coach yesterday, a
Washington Post story reported that
Michigan assistant coach Cam
Cameron might join him in the nation's
capital as a receivers coach.
Moeller said that he had heard the
rumor of Cameron's possible depar-
ture, but has not been contacted by
anyone in the Washington organiza-
tion about speaking with Cameron, who
has served as a Michigan assistant for
the last 10 years.

Finley leads route of Michigan
State; Hoosiers survive overtime

Michael Finley scored 32 points
-25 in the first half- leading No. 16
Wisconsin to an 87-62 victory over
Michigan State, yesterday.
The Badgers, playing without ail-
ing freshman center Rashard Griffith,
used a Big Ten record 14 three-point-
ers, including five by Finley, to bury
the Spartans.
Finley was 12-of-19 from the field
and added 11 rebounds and five assists
as Wisconsin (5-3 Big Ten, 14-3 over-
all) avenged a 70-60 loss to the Spar-
tans on Jan. 19.
Michigan State (5-4, 14-7) was led
by Shawn Respert's 21 points.
The Badgers, who led by as many
as 29 points, didn't seem to miss
Griffith, who has a painful lesion just
below his right knee.
Finley's first two baskets of the
second half gave him 29 points and
gave Wisconsin a 53-28 lead.
His 25 first-half points were two
short of the school record set by Marty
Gharrity against Loyola, Ill., on Dec.
12, 1959. It was also two points short of
the Wisconsin Field House record set
by Purdue's Terry Dischinger on Jan.
27, 1962.
Finley, who tied a school record
with seven three-pointers in the Bad-
gers' 79-75 loss at Michigan on Satur-
day, had five of the Badgers' nine first-
half three-pointers as Wisconsin led
49-28 at halftime.
The Badgers took control early
when Finley sparked a24-4 run with 15
points, including two three-pointers and
a fast-break dunk off a behind-the-

back, no-look pass from Darnell
Finley missed his only three-point
attempt in the second half and left the

game with five minutes remaining.
No.14 Indiana 87, Ohio State 83
Indiana lost coach Bob Knight
to an ejection and a starting forward
to an injury, but the No. 14 Hoosiers
still beat Ohio State 87-83 in over-
Knight was tossed after receiving
two technical fouls 69 seconds apart in
the second half. Both technicals came
for arguing with officials.
Knight has been ejected from two
exhibitions - one of them this season
- and two Big Ten games in 23 years
at Indiana.
Without him, the Hoosiers over-
came an 11-point deficit and moved

into a tie for first place in the Big Ten
with Michigan. Indiana (6-2, 13-4)
extended the nation's longest home
winning streak to 40 games.
Seniors Damon Bailey and PA
Graham led Indiana in the overtime.
Graham, who scored 29 points, had
a pair of three-pointers, two key
assists and two free throws in the
extra period. Bailey, who scored 19,
had one basket and five free throws
in the overtime.
Indiana also got 22 points from
Alan Henderson. Ohio State (2-6, 9-
10) got 26 points from Lawrenc.
Funderburke and 24 from Jamie
Skelton, including five three-pointers.
The game was only 21 seconds old
when Indiana forward Brian Evans,
battling for an offensive rebound, dis-
located his right shoulder for the sec-
ond time this season.
Iowa 92, No. 22 Minnesota 88
Jess Settles scored 19 points and
Chris Kingsbury gave Iowa a lift in hi
first start with five three-pointers t
lead the Hawkeyes to a 92-88 victory
over No. 22 Minnesota.
Kingsbury and Mon'ter Glasper
each finished with 15 points, James
Winters had 14 and Kenyon Murray
added 12 for Iowa (3-5, 9-8).
Iowa missed seven of eight free
throws to allow the Golden Gophers to
rally from a 16-point deficit in the final
Voshon Lenard scored 30 points
forMinnesota (4-4, 14-7), including 15
in the final 4:25, while Randy Carter
had 14, Arriel McDonald 12 and
Townsend Orr 10.

ASHBURN, Va. (AP) - The
Redskins hired Dallas Cowboys of-
fensive coordinator Norv Turner as
their new coach yesterday with in-
structions to win next season and get
Washington back to the playoffs by
Turner, afterhelping take the Cow-
boys to two consecutive Super Bowl
championships, replaces Richie
Petitbon, fired last month after only
one season, the Redskins' worst in
three decades.
The Redskins gave Turner a
five-year contract, according to one
team official, speaking on the con-
dition of anonymity. No salary was
disclosed. Petitbon had a two-year


contract with an annual pay of
Owner'Jack Kent Cooke put high
expectations on Turner to reverse
the Redskins' rapid descent from
the Super Bowl championship just
two seasons ago. They were 10-8,
including the playoffs, in Joe Gibbs'
last season in 1992, but fell to 4-12
under Petitbon.
"I have high hopes that pretty soon,
and soon to me means this coming
year, we're going to embark on win-
ning ways," Cooke said. "And shortly
thereafter, the winning ways will turn
into playoff ways. That may be as late
as 1995.
"Three Super Bowl trophies are not
enough for Mr. and Mrs. Turner and
me and my son. There are going tobe
more, and it's not going to be in the
distant future; it's going to be in the
near future."
Gibbs delivered all three of those

trophies in his 12 years before resign-
ing last March. Since December, after
Petitbon's team faltered under limping
quarterback Mark Rypien with no pro-
tection from an injury-decimated line,
the Redskins have looked upon Turner
as almost a clone of Gibbs.
"That's amazingly flattering; I've
been an admirer of Joe Gibbs for a
number of years," Turner said. "But
there's no way I can be Joe Gibbs and
there's no way I'm going to try to be
Joe Gibbs. Only one thing will make
the comparison valid, and that's the
test of time."
Turner, 41, is widely credited with
turning the Cowboys 28th-ranked of-
fense the year before he arrived from
the Los Angeles Rams into a Super
Bowl powerhouse two years later and
keeping it through last week's second
championship victory over the Buffalo
"When afootball team is 4-12, there

obviously are some problems that yol
have to solve," Turner said.
He said the Redskins have several
talented veterans returning, but "obvi-
ously there's some areas where the
talent has to be improved."
His first priority, he said, is putting
a staff together by the end of the week.
Turner spent Tuesday night contacting
most of the assistants he wants and said
yesterday the only thing that remains i*
bringing them here "over the next three
days" to sign contracts.
Four members of Petitbon's staff
will stay - defensive backs coach
Emmitt Thomas, offensive line coach
Jim Hanifan, tight ends coach Russ
Grimm and offensive assistant Charley
Minnesota Vikings quarterbacks
coach Dick Coury is in line to replac
offensive coordinator Rod Dowhowei.
Michigan receivers coach Cam
Cameron, and Phoenix Cardinals as-
sistants Bobby Jackson and Pete
Rodriguez also are expected here Thurs-
day or Friday.
Three Cincinnati Bengals assis-
tants - Ron Lynn as coordinator,
Bob Karmelowciz for linemen and
Mike Haluchak at linebackers -
also will join Turner's staff with the
Next week, Turner said, he and his
staff will be looking at films of the
Redskins current players and consult
with general manager Charley Casserly
on how to fill out the roster when the
free agency market opens Feb. 18.
With the new salary caps, the
Redskins will have to reduce their cur-
rent $45 million payroll by about $1.
They are in desperate need of a
healthy quarterback and are ex-
pected to turn to the draft, where
they have the third pick, for either
Tennessee's Heath Shuler or Fresno
State's Trent Dilfer.
"In the long run, you would like to'
build an offense around a young guy,
start from square one," Turner said.
The Redskins also are looking t@
the free agency to get a new starting
linebacker and defensive end, other
linemen and possibly a receiver or
Turner acknowledged there are
"some tough decisions to be made."
