.M' men's lacrosse
looks toward 7th
straight Big Ten title

Georgetown downs
Texas Tech, 98-90
Hoyas to face UMass in Great Eight

Daily Sports Writer
The quest for a seventh straight Big
Ten championship for the Michigan
men's lacrosse club (1-0 Big Ten, 4-1
overall) begins this weekend when it
heads to West Lafayette for the Big Ten
East Regionals.
The round-robin tournament will help
determine seedings for the Big Ten
Championships to be held in April. The
'olverines can earn a first-round bye
in the Big Ten championships by doing
well in the regionals, and earning a No.
I seed.
The regionals will also provide the
Wolverines the opportunity to play
teams they haven't played this year
from the East Region of the Big Ten.
This weekend's foes include Illinois,
Indiana and tournament host Purdue.
4ichigan already defeated Michigan
ate, 21-11, this year, which is why the
two will not meet this weekend.
Illinois looks to pose the biggestthreat
to the Wolverines' current run, when
the two teams meet tomorrow. The Illini
were up, 9-6, in the fourth quarter of last
year's Big Ten championship semifi-
nal, before Michigan pulled out a 12-10
victory.
"(The Wolverines) know how to
win," Illinois coach Brian Mosher said.
'Any mistake we made last year, they
ook advantage of."
This year's Illini squad is stronger
than ever, with the addition of freshmen
midfielder Sean McCone and attacker
Scott, Lirette, who both are from the
East Coast.
"We match up as well as we ever
have with Michigan," Mosher said.
Facing top collegiate competition
might actually be a break for the Wol-
*erines, who are coming off a crushing
loss to the Motor City Lacrosse Club,

16-13. Michigan was completely
outplayed in that game, with all facets
of its game falling apart.
"In the prior games if the offense was
down, the defense would pick up, or
vice versa," Michigan coach Bob
DiGiovanni said. "In (the Motor City
game) everyone was down, and no one
picked up."
Michigan can take solace in the fact
that it lost to a more experienced Motor
City team made up of former Division
I varsity players, including six All-
Amen cans.
"We have to keep things in perspec-
tive," DiGiovanni said. "The real busi-
ness at hand is this weekend."
The Wolverines will have a full squad
going into this weekend's tournament.
Roughly one-third of the team missed
the three victories over spring break but
returned for the Motor City game.
The amount of practice time will be
one major difference in West Lafayette.
After coming back from spring break,
the Wolverines had only one practice
with its entire unit, before facing Motor
City. The lack of cohesiveness was ap-
parent on the field in the last game, but
should be corrected, as the team prac-
ticed three times this week.
"We've been running pretty hard (in
practice)," captain Alex Cedro said.
"(The Motor City) game was a wake-up
call for us. We really didn't hustle."
Another major concern for Michigan
this weekend is the change in playing
conditions. The Wolverines practice in-
doors on artificial turf, while the regionals
will be played outdoors on grass.
"I hoped that we could have prac-
ticed outside this week, but the snow
prevented us from doing that,"
DiGiovanni said.
Michigan hopes that is all the snow
will prevent.

ATLANTA -Allen Iverson, unfazed
by a poor shooting touch, never stopped
firing last night.
Iverson, despite hitting only 10-of-29
from the field, scored 32 points to lead
Georgetown into the finals of the NCAA
East Regional with a 98-90 victory over
Texas Tech.
The Hoyas (29-7) haven't been this far
in the tournament since 1989, when they
lost in a regional fi-
nal to Duke. Tomor-
row, they will meet Other SCor

throws with 4:11 remaining.

Iverson misses to spark a 9-0 tn that
sealed the victory. Jerome Williams had
the final five points ofthe game-deciding
spurt, finishing it off with a 3-point play
with two minutes remaining.
Jason Sasser led Texas Tech with 25
points, but his only points in the final 15
minutes came on a meaningless 3-pointer

Texas Tech (30-
2), making its first
appearance in the round of 16 since 1976,
had the nation's longest winning streak
snappedat23 games andofficially brought
down the curtain on Southwest Confer-
ence basketball.
The third-seeded Red Raiders, headed
to the Big 12 next season, came into the
game looking forrespect, butthey couldn't
overcome a 17-0 run which gave the
Hoyas a 72-61 lead midway through the
second half.
Iverson had 6 points during that span,
setting up his points with a couple of
steals. Othello Harrington, inserted back
into the game despite four fouls, added 5
points in the run.
Texas Tech caught a break when
Harrington fouled out with 7:52 left after
scoring 23 points, but Georgetown, the
region's No. 2 seed, never relinquished
its lead. The Red Raiders got as close as

Arkansas 63 brilliantcareerigno-
miniously by be-
coming the fifth
player in the game to foul out.
Georgetown spent most of the final
minutes at the foul'line and finished a
staggering 33-of-46. Texas Tech was
23-of-35 in the physical game that was
marked by bodies tumbling all over the
court.
But above it all was Iverson, whose
quickness and ball-handling skills dic-
tated the pace. It was hardly his best game
of the season, but somehow the talented
sophomore kept winding up in the middle
of the action.
He finished with five assists, four re-
bounds, four steals and only two turn-
overs.
Texas Tech led for most of the first
half. Its biggest advantage was 42-32
with 3:05 to go after a 10-0 run, but
Georgetown closed the gap to 50-47 at
halftime.

LEXINGTON, Ky.- It's every
coach's dream to have a trio of perimeter
players who can shoot and pass and two
inside players who can score and re-
bound.
That's what will be on view tonight in
the second game of the Southeast Re-
gional semifinals, only they'll be facing
each other.
Third-seeded Georgia Tech (24-11),
with the potent perimeter threesome of
Drew Barry, Stephon Marbury and Matt
Harpring, meets second-seeded Cincin-
nati (27-4), with the powerpair of Danny
Fortson and Art Long.
It should come down to which non-
stars come up big that could decide which
team advances to Sunday's regional final
to play the winner of the game between
top-seeded Connecticut (32-2) and fifth-
seeded Mississippi State (24-7).
"Eddie Elisma and Mike Maddox are
playing well," Barry said Thursday ofthe
Yellow Jackets' center and power for-
ward. "We don't have a weakness now."
Cincinnati coach Bob Huggins knows
how much his backcourt means to any
success the Bearcats have had.
"When we weren't playing well it was
when we were trying to be a power team,"
he said. "We need balance. We have good
guards."
So does Georgia Tech, the Atlantic

Coast Conference regular-season cham-
pions.
"They have probably the best three
perimeter players playingtoday," Huggins
said. "They create so much offense out of
the context of their own offense."
Marbury, a freshman who many feel
will be heading forthe NBA very soon, is
the point guard and leads the team in
scoring at 19.0. Barry, the last collegian
of the four sons of Hall of Famer Rick
Barry, is a combination guard who aver-
ages 13.5 points and6.5 assists. Harpring,
a sophomore small forward who has blos-
somed of late, averages 18.8 points and
8.2 rebounds.
Cincinnati doesn't plan much ofastrat-
egy change from the physical style it has
become known for under Huggins.
"They've got good guards who can
shoot," Fortson said. "We're going to try
wear them out and go with our game plan
which is physical dominance."
Fortson, a sophomore power forward,
averages 20.3 points and 9.3 rebounds,
while Long, a senior center, averages 9.0
and 7.9.

Following directly on the heels of
acure's victory, Catrabone came out
4-trong against Jason Lange of Penn
State. Catrabone led 7-1 at the end of
two periods, and that was how the
match ended, as the Wolverine sopho-
more held on for the win and a
quarterfinal berth.
Rawls continued the trend for the
Wolverines in his match against West

tournament appearance for Michi gan.
Although Koss led after two peri-

shortly after the third frame began,
coming close to pinning Koss before
riding him out to win the match, 5-3.

making his final tournament appear-
