Michigan State refuses to release
NCAA letter outlining wrongdoings

The Associated Press
EAST LANSING - Michigan
State says a letter from the NCAA
spelling out allegations of wrongdo-
ing by the school contains sensitive
information and hearsay and should
not be released now.
Michigan State, in court documents
filed last week, said the public will
have plenty of time to review the
letter before a hearing is scheduled to
determine any penalties.
Michigan State said a hearing could
come about two months after it com-
pletes its investigation, expected to
be later this month,
The Lansing State Journal, WILX-
TV and WLNS-TV sued last month,

accusing the university of violating
the state Freedom of Information Act
and seeking to have the document
released. The issue is before Ingham
County Circuit Court Judge Lawrence
Glazer.
But Michigan State says releasing the
letter now would damage the pursuit of
truth in the investigation. The school also
cited legal arguments for why it believes
it is not required to release the document
at this time, the Lansing State Journal
reported Saturday.
The letter of inquiry contains sev-
eral charges related to both current
and former Spartan players, coaches
and administrators, the school said. It
involves charges related to people out-

side the Michigan State community
It also includes information about
scholastic, medical and psychologi-
cal records of present or former Spar-
tan athletes. Others named in the docu-
ment include private health-care pro-
viders and people at other schools,
the Michigan State court filing said.
Michigan State said testimony con-
tained in the document was not taken
under oath and contains some infor-
mation that is speculative or hearsa*
Michigan State was sparked in Oc-
tober 1994 by former Spartan football
player Roosevelt Wagner, who made
68 allegations against the University,
including academic fraud and illegal
payments from boosters.

The Associated Press
CHICAGO - The Detroit Red
Wings moved within one victory of
the NHL record for wins in a season,
taking advantage ofChicago's overly
aggressive play to beat the
Blackhawks 4-1 yesterday.
Dino Ciccarelli, Igor Larionov and
Nicklas Lidstrom had power-play
goals for the Red Wings, who can
match the 1976-77 Montreal
Canadiens' record of 60 victories by
defeating Winnipeg at home on
Wednesday. Detroit, which already
has clinched the league's best record,
has three games left.
Kris Draper also scored as the Red
Wings snapped out of an 0-1-2 skid,
their longest winless streak this sea-
son.
The Blackhawks tried to use their
size and tenacity to intimidate the
Red Wings, but still fell to 0-4-1

Celtics slow Pistons' drive

The Associated Press
BOSTON - Playoffs or no play-
offs, the Boston Celtics are in a stretch
drive.
Todd Day scored II of his 16 points
during a 19-5 fourth-quarter run that
gave Boston the lead for good yester-
day and the Celtics held off the De-
troit Pistons, 98-97. It was the lottery-
bound Celtics' second consecutive
victory over a team in the playoff
hunt.
"A lot of teams, when they're out of
playoff contention, they shut it down
and prepare for the summer," forward
Rick Fox said. "That's not just an
insult to the game, it's an insult to
each other to go out there and slop it
around."
IBoston beat the Magic 100-98
Thursday night in Orlando, the first
Eastern Conference team to win there
in two years. Boston coach M.L. Carr
called yesterday's game a reaffirma-
tion of the Orlando victory, his enthu-
siasm not at all diminished by the fact
that Shaquille O'Neal was absent and
Anfernee Hardaway was ejected in
the second quarter.

"We never complained about whom
we were without," Carr said, adding
later that leading scorer and rebounder
Dino Radja, out since March 1 with a
sprained ankle, is done forthe season.
"It was said early on that this team
would fall apart. But we will not fall
apart," Carr said. "There is a plan in
place and we'll let you know the plan
at the appropriate time."
Pervis Ellison scored a season-high
18 points and pulled down 12 re-
bounds for the Celtics, who were
mathematically eliminated from play-
off contention with Charlotte's vic-
tory on Saturday night.
"It has nothing to do with wins and
losses right now," Celtics captain Dee
Brown said.
Allan Houston scored 26 to lead the
Pistons, who dropped from sixth to
seventh in the Eastern Conference
playoff hunt. They also missed a
chance to clinch their first winning
season since 1991-92.
"If we get a chance to play in the
postseason, we've got to play at an
upper level," said Grant Hill, who
scored 16 with 10 rebounds and 10

in standings,
assists but shot just 6-of-20 from the
floor. "The energy is not there."
Detroit scored the first seven points
of the fourth quarter to take a 73-70
lead before Day dunked and drew a
foul. He missed the free throw, but
made a layup on Boston's next pos-
session to give the Celtics a 74-73
lead.
Eric Williams made it 76-73 befor
Houston hit two free throws to pu
the Pistons within one. Then, Day
was fouled making a jumper - again
missing the free throw.
After Brown and Day each hit two
free throws to give Boston an 82-75
lead, Terry Mills made a 3-pointer. But,
Boston pulled away again when Day
blocked Otis Thorpe's shot, Williams
dove for the loose ball and fed Brown
from the floor, setting up Day's 3-
pointer to make it 85-78 with 3:59 lev
After a Pistons timeout, Boston ex-
tended its lead to 89-78 with just over
two minutes to play. Detroit closed
the gap thanks to missed Boston free
throws, but still trailed by four when
Houston's 3-pointer as time expired
made it 98-97.
