£gophers stay on top
after final-second scare

WEST LAFAYETTE (AP) - No.
3 Minnesota survived a late charge
st night, defeating Purdue, 70-67,
Brian Cardinal's 3-pointer at the
buzzer bounced off the rim.
Minnesota, which led by as much
as 13 points in the second half, was
led by Sam Jacobson and Bobby
Jackson with 13 points.
Chad Austin scored 23 for Purdue,
which had its hopes for a fourth-con-
secutive Big Ten championship
ended by 21 turnovers that led to 20
Minnesota points.
*Four players finished in double
figures for Minnesota (10-1 Big Ten,
21-2 overall), which won for the first
time in 15 trips to Mackey Arena.
Purdue (8-4, 13-9) trailed 44-31
with 17:55 to play, but cut the deficit
to four with 9:01 left on Austin's 3-
pointer with 9:01 left.
Austin's two free throws brought
Purdue to 69-67, but Jackson capped
soring by making one free throw
ith 25.2 seconds left, and
Minnesota held on for the win.
IOWA STATE 87, MISSOURI 59
Dedric Willoughby scored 22 of
his 29 points in the first half and No.

9 Iowa State used an 18-1 run in the
middle of the game to beat Missouri
87-59 last night.
Willoughby made all five of his
first-half 3-point shots for the
Cyclones.
Kenny Pratt added 12 points for
Iowa State (8-3 Big 12, 17-4 overall),
which shot 70.4 percent in the sec-
ond half and a season-high 63.5 per-
cent for the game in matching its
most lopsided victory ever against
Missouri (4-7, 12-12).
Kelvin Cato helped out with 11
points, eight rebounds and seven
blocks.
Willoughby hit three in the final
1:37 of the first half as the Cyclones
opened an 11-1 run to take a 38-27
lead.
Iowa State then scored the first
seven points of the second half to
stretch the lead to 45-27.
The closest Missouri got after that
was 54-44 on a basket by Kelly
Thames, who led the Tigers with 20
points.
KENTUCKY 84, LSU 48
Senior Anthony Epps scored 18
points on six 3-pointers, both career

highs, as No. 4 Kentucky handed
LSU its worst loss of the season in
coasting to an 84-48 victory last
night.
Kentucky (9-2 SEC, 23-3 overall)
scored 27 points off LSU's 26
turnovers and held a commanding
49-31 advantage on the boards as
Nazr Mohammed and Jamaal
Magloire each pulled down 10
rebounds.
The previous biggest defeat for
LSU (2-10, 9-16) was 82-53 to No. 1
Kansas.
Epps' 3-pointer ignited an 11-0
spurt, six points coming after
turnovers, that gave Kentucky a 26-
10 advantage with 7:57 in the half.
Kentucky was never in trouble
after that as LSU got no closer than
26-13 on Maurice Carter's 16-footer
at 6:10.
The Wildcats led 41-21 at the half
and built the margin to 82-44 on
Mohammed's layup with 2:40 left.
Ron Mercer scored 16 points and
Mohammed added 15 for the
Wildcats.
Terrance Simmons led LSU with
14 points.

The large number of teams and athletes competing this weekend at the Eastern
Michigan Invitational will result in a long meet. Michigan will be running against
Division I and club teams in addition to Division I opponents.

dling. She was not happy at all with
her hurdle performance, (consider-
ing) that she had one terrible race in
the preliminaries at (the Canon
Classic)."
, Sophomore high-jumper Nicole
Forrester will also compete tomor-
ow. Forrester experienced problems
e to her relative lack of jumping at
the 1996 outdoor Big Ten champi-
onships, where she failed to qualify
for the finals.
This season has been an entirely
different story for Forrester, who
hasn't lost once in four meets.
According to Henry, she's not about
to break her winning rhythm by skip-
ping a meet.
"Forrester doesn't want to lie on
r laurels as of yet," Henry said.
She thinks she can jump much
higher, and it will only help her con-
fidence if she can continue to
improve."
Even though the Eastern Michigan
* For the best
coverage of
thi weekend's

Invitational will not feature some of
the Wolverines who usually com-
pete, those who do show up will not
lack competition.
"This is (going to be) a carnival,"
Henry said. "When I say carnival,
there will probably be 30 or 40
schools there. There will be a num-
ber of club teams, and a number of
smaller Division I and II teams there
- it will be a very long and very big
meet."
Even Spock had to come back to
life sooner or later - the Wolverines
will continue to face tough workouts
in practice to make sure they can
enact the same type of resurrection
at the Big Tens.
"This week will probably be our
hardest week of workouts," Henry
said. "We're wanting to work them
very hard.
"We cannot back off the intensity
of our training, so we might drop the
performances in terms of competing,
but we will not back off our train-
ing."
