lSt. John's posts second
straight top 25 upset

NEW YORK (AP) - When one
backcourt dominates another like St.
John's starting guards did to
Connecticut's last night, it usually hap-
ens in one of those early season non-
conference mismatches.
Erick Barkley and Bootsy Thornton
outscored Khalid El-Amin and Albert
Mouring 42-2 and the Red Storm rolled
to their sixth straight victory, 79-64
over the 22nd-ranked Huskies.
The cloud of a second NCAA inves-
tigation in a month didn't appear to be
affecting the Red Storm (19-6, 11-3
Big East) on the court as they beat a
bnked conference opponent for the
rs pnd straight game.
Saturday night's 76-75 victory over
then-No. 9 Syracuse was also in front
of a sellout crowd of 19,410 at Madison
Square Garden and started a tough
closing stretch to the regular season.
"If the other night was special, and it
was, we'll have to find other ways to
describe this' St. John's coach Mike
,Jarvis said. "How about extra special?
Ie kids were magnificent from the
first play to the last play."
Barkley had 22 points on his 22nd
birthday and Thornton had 20 and they
each had four assists. EI-Amin and
Mouring, Connecticut's top two scor-
ers, were a combined 0-for-I16 from the
field, including missing nine 3-point
Jarvis said trying to control the
H44skies' backcourt was part of the
me plan.

them," he said. "They didn't shoot
tonight as well as they obviously can
and have."
The loss was the fourth in sixth
games for the Huskies (18-8, 7-6), who
have lost more games this season than
the last two combined, including last
season's 34-2 run to the national cham-
"We stayed with them for a while,
then their backeourt outplayed our
backcourt. My backcourt had an off
night'" Connecticut coach Jim Calhoun
said. "We just didn't get a real good
game from the perimeter. ... Our back-
court play has been deteriorating the
last three, four weeks."
St. John's came into the game 10th in
the conference in 3-point shooting at
29.7 percent, but had its best game of
the season behind the arc, going 6-of-9
(66.7 percent).
Lavor Postell also had 22 points on
8-for- 12 shooting for the Red Storm,
who finished 26-for-47 from the field
(55.3 percent).
"-We walked off the court on
Saturday at midnight and yesterday we
had some treatments, watched a little
film and laughed a little," Jarvis said.
"With a win you can do that."
The Red Storm led 39-33 at half-
time, the same score as in the previous
meeting between the teams at
Connecticut, which St. John's won 82-
The Huskies, who haven't won con-
secutive games since a three-game win-
ning streak from Jan. 27-Feb. 2, were
within 47-40 on a rebound basket by
Jake Voskuhl with 15:02 to play.

Dorothy Gale from "The Wizard of
Oz" used to say that "there's no place
like home." The Michigan men's
swimming and diving team hopes that
her statement will ring true for them
this weekend.
For the first time since its multi-mil-
lion dollar renovation last year,
Canham Natatorium will host the Big
Ten Championships this Thursday
through Saturday. Ranking as one of
the top facilities in the world and host-
ing five of the nation's top 25 teams,
Canham is sure to be home to some
fast races.
"If the other team's swimmers can-
not swim fast here, then there's some-
thing wrong with them because this is
a quality place to swim," Canham
Facilities Director Mark Lambert said.
Michigan swimmers already know
they can swim quickly at home, thanks
to countless hours and miles of prac-
tice over the last few months.
"We're used to the feel of the pool,"
freshman Jeff Lauhoff said. "We've

been swimming
there twice a day,
sometimes for six
Such familiarity
with the pool will be
an advantage for the

"Hopefully we'll have a lot -of the
student body and our fans out there,"
Lauhoff said. "And we'll have ourfam-

With a friendly crowd in the friend-
lv confines of home, eighth-ranked
Michigan appears to have a healthy
advantage over its visitors. And the
countless championship banners encir-
cling the pool may serve to intimidate
would-be challengers. These fIetors
have many Wolverines confident 'that

from the side walls can make for faster
times, and Canham's pool fits the rac-
ing ideal. The natatorium also features
a 'hot tub for the divers, a full-sized
pool for ~warming up and cooling
down, and is supported by top of the
line logistics.
"Canham Natatorium has the best
air and water system in the U.S, let
alone the world," Lambert said.
While the pool may be conducive to
personal bests and team records, its
history dictates that pool records may
be hard to come by. Canham has been
home to Olympic champions and
world record holders, and has hosted

pool records to be broken, however."
And broken records will hold spe-
cial significance for their new holders,
as Lambert expects capacity crowds to
take in the action all weekend long.
"Get ready to see the pool visited by
1,500 people twice a day, for all three
days," he said.

You've been lugging books and stress around all semester. Now's the time to lighten the load and take a
break...Spring Break, that is! Spring Break is definitely a great stress-buster and the best party ever!
More friends, fun (hopefully, sun) and guys than you can imagine! To help get ready for the college
experience of a lifetime, here are some helpful tips (from someone with personal experience) that will
get you off to Spring Break 2000 and out on the beach as fast and fabulously as possible!
Cardinal Rule #1: At all costs, do NOT over pack! Have you ever lugged a heavy bag with a sunburn?
What You MUST Bring:

Wear Playtex Gentle Glide-
all you feel is comfortable.
It's true. With pads, even the thinnest ones,
you always know they're there. And that can
make you feel like you're wearing a diaper.
Try Playtex Gentle Glide tampons. They offer
you a more comfortable way to deal with your
period. Playtex Gentle Glide tampons have a
unique design that adjusts to comfort fit. So
they're more than invisible - they're completely

Sunglasses, cool hat and lots of suntan lotion!
(Banana Boat' sunblock is my personal
favorite because it comes in a variety of SPFs
and smells great.) Remember, a bum on the
beach means no more fun in the sun.
2 bathing suits to add some pizazz and to
always have one that's dry.
2 to 3 pair of shoes - Definitely bring cool
sandals for cruising the beach and a comfy set
of walking shoes so you can hit the board-
Z 7Sundresses are a great space saver and look
awesome on the beach during the day or out
on the town at night. The perfect excuse to
show off a tan!
rA stash of tampons - Just in case! (As a tip,
try Playtex* Tampons. -They're perfect for
packing and really are so comfortable you can't
even feel them.)

The basics: travel-size soap, shampoo, lotion,
toothpaste and razor - Pack in plastic to avoid
gross surprises at the other end when you
unpack. (Throw a couple of Wet Ones*
Singles moist towelettes in for you and your
friends. You'll find a million uses for them - at
the beach, after lunch and to wipe that suntan
lotion off of your hands.)
On to the good stuff... a Camera to record
the memories and something to play your
favorite tunes on the beach. - Remember to
buy extra film and batteries BEFORE you
Of course it won't rain, but bring a deck of
cards - just in case.
One credit card (and only one) for emergen-
cies. (What if the cash machine doesn't



yourself -leave

it at home:

Your heavy-duty hair dryer - Check with
friends and vote for one person (whoever has
the smallest) to lug it.

Too much make-up. It will melt in all that
sun - and anyway, the natural look is in.
