Michigan beats Terps
in NCAA Sweet 16

By CHAD A. SAFRAN
DAILY BASKETBALL WRITER
DALLAS - As usual the Michi-
gan men's basketball team provided
its assortment of thrills and chills
against Maryland in Friday's Regional
semifinal at Reunion Arena.
Seemingly comfortable with a 21-
point lead in the second half, the
Wolverines managed to allow the
Terrapins back into the game before
sealing the 78-71 win in the final
minute.
"The last five minutes, you saw it,
we did not play well," Michigan coach
Steve Fisher said. "We had about 23-
24 minutes where we played excep-
tionally well."
During that portion of the game
Fisher spoke of, the Wolverines broke
open a close game with a 9-0 run over
a span of 3:47, with all the points
coming from Juwan Howard and Jalen
Rose.
Howard, who had nine points at
halftime, hit for 15 in the second
stanza before fouling out with 2:49
remaining in the game. Before he left
the game, the junior center limited
Maryland's prize freshman, Joe
Smith, to 12 points.
"Every game I play, I take as a
challenge," Howard said. "He's no
lightweight."
Smith credited his mediocre show-
ing to the Michigan game plan.
"Michigan's defense did a pretty

Jalen drives to the hole...

Michigan's versatile swingman Jalen Rose looks for an opening in the lane.
Rose, who averaged over twenty points per game during the regular season,
managed only 13 points in 39 minutes in yesterday's 76-68 loss to the top-
seeded Arkansas Razorbacks.

good job," said Smith, referring to the
Wolverines constant double-teaming
on the low-post. For the game, the
Terps shot 36 percent, which is by far
Michigan's best defensive showing
of the tournament. Additionally, the
Wolverines blocked seven Maryand
attempts (tying a season-high set
against Michigan State), including
three by Makhtar Ndiyae.
However, the defense and offense
began to fall apart in the contest's
final stages. The Wolverines com-
mitted several turnovers while mak-
ing some bad shot-attempt decisions,
including a Ray Jackson jumper after
Fisher called for his team to work the
ball.
As Maryland cut its deficit to six
with 1:32 remaining on a short hook
from Exree Hipp, the Terps had a
chance after all had seemed lost. Then
Jimmy King picked off a Maryland
pass and skied his way to the basket
with a highlight film layup, giving
Michigan a 77-69 lead with 45 sec-
onds left.
"What we did coming back was
typical of our play this season," Mary-
land coach Gary Williams said. "No
one put us away. As it came down the
stretch I thought we had a chance."
So did the rest of the Terp fans as
Michigan missed 5-of-6 free throws
in the final minute but they could not
score in the last 40 seconds of the
contest.

Michigan prospect shines in

ASSOCIATED PRESS
The Michigan Class B champion-
ship game went down to the buzzer
Saturday - Travis Conlan's jumper
with two seconds left gave St. Clair
hores Lake Shore a 38-37 win over
East Grand Rapids.
Conlan, a runner-up to Detroit
Pershing's Willie Mitchell in the Mr.
Basketball voting, struggled for most
of the weekend, but scored five points
in the final 44 seconds. The game-
winning points came on a shortjumper
as he was falling over the baseline.
"I got the ball about seven feet from
the basket, took one dribble and shot,"
4ie said. "As soon as it started spinning,
I ran over to our fans, because I knew it
was in."
While Conlan's high-school career
ended with a state title, Mitchell's fin-
ished with his first loss in three title
games as Pershing fell 80-73 to Detroit
Murray-Wright in the Class A final.
Mitchell dominated the first quar-
ter and Pershing ran out to a 15-2 lead,

but couldn't overcome the deeper Pi-
lots.
"One player can not win a game, so
we just worried about stopping the rest
of them, and just let him go," said
Murray-Wright center Robert Traylor.
"We knew there was no way he could
keep playing like that for four quarters.
No one could."
FINAL FOUR OF ANOTHER SORT: The
nation's oldest postseason tournament
reaches its own Final Four with a Mon-
day night doubleheader at Madison
SquareGarden when Kansas State plays
VanderbiltandVillanovatakeson Siena
in the NIT semifinals. All four teams
know there's plenty to be gained from
this experience.
Kansas State comes in riding the
hottest hand in college basketball. Askia
Jones scored 62 points against Fresno
State in the NIT quarterfinals, nailing
14 of 18 3-point shots. And he did it in
just 28 minutes.
"It was an unbelievable shooting
performance. It didn't matter if he was

state tourney
guarded or he wasn't guarded. No mat-
ter where he shot it from, it went in."
Vanderbilt star Billy McCaffrey,
who transferred from Duke after the
Blue Devils won the 1991 NCAA tour-
nament, wentoverthe2,000-pointmark
this season. McCaffrey has a chance at
a rare perfecta - playing on both
NCAA and NIT championship teams.
Siena coach Mike Deane and
Villanova's Steve Lappas chatted
through lunch, and Deane went public
with the subject.
"I asked him what kind of defense
he was going to use, man-to-man or
zone," the coach said. "He said he had
something different. He must know
something about the game that I don't
know."
When Lappas was asked about the
defense, he retreated to his mysterious
mode, saying ominously, "We'll do
something different."

Frida reaches Final Four

MIAMI (AP) -Florida's no longer
just a football state.
Craig Brown hit 3-pointers on three
consecutive possessions to break open a
close game, and the FloridaGators earned
their first trip to the Final Four by beating
Boston College 74-66 Sunday.
The third-seeded Gators (29-7),
champions of the East Regional, will
play Southeast Regional champion
Duke (27-5) in Saturday's national
semifinals at Charlotte, N.C.
Boston College, which at No.9 was
the lowest seed remaining in the tour-
nament, finished 23-11.
Basketball has always taken a
backseat to football in Florida, partly
because the Gators had made only three
previous NCAA tournament appear-
ances. Just four years ago they were 7-
21, but the Gators had apartisan sellout
crowd roaring Sunday at Miami Arena.
Brown's big baskets turned a56-53
deficit into a 62-56 lead with 3:50

remaining. The turnaround marked the
15th and final lead change.
Boston College squanderedchances
to close the deficit. The Eagles missed
four free throws in the final 3:24 and
committed three turnovers in the last
minute.
Brown led Florida with 21 points.
Andrew DeClercq added 16 points and
13 rebounds.
Bill Curley scored 20 and Howard
Eisley 19 for the Eagles, who shot just
38 percent.
Gerrod Abram's steal and
breakaway dunk gave Boston College
its biggest lead, 51-45, with 11:27 re-
maining. The Eagles scored only three
field goals the rest of the way.
Florida scored the next eight points,
taking a 53-51 lead on Jason Anderson's
fast-break layup. Boston College tied
the game at 53 on two free throws by
Danya Abrams, ending a 5 1/2-minute
scoring drought.
