Stopping Stephens is key for Michigan

TOURNAMENT
Continued from Page 9
Chicago as head man at Iowa has been for Big
Ten Media Day in October (Iowa didn't play at
Northwestern this season, due to a scheduling
glitch). So tomorrow will be his first visit.
"I've never been in a tournament where, to
win it, you need to play four straight days,"
Alford said. "I think that becomes sort of a dif-
ferent mindset. Going to Chicago and feeling
that out - we're rookies."
(8) MIcHIGAN: Coach Brian Ellerbe politely
declined to tell the media what he said to his
team after Saturday's 114-63 drubbing at
Michigan State. But he was much more respon-
sive when questioned about his opponent in
tomorrow's opening round, Penn State.
"Obviously, Joe Crispin and Jarrett

Stephens are very good players. Jarrett is a
handful and we'll definitely need to do a job
on both of those guys. Jarrett almost beat us
himself" the first time, an 89-87 overtime
victory for Michigan.
(9) PENN STATE: At 13-14, the Nittany Lions
would need two wins in the BTT to extend their
season in the NIT. That means the possible end-
ing of the career of senior Jarrett Stephens is
near. Stephens, an all-Big Ten first-team selec-
tion, recovered from an injury-filled past to be
the heart and soul of Coach Jerry Dunn's team
this season.
"He's made the most out of his abilities. He's
got a great knack for offensive rebounding, and
I think he's one of the best offensive rebounders
we've ever had here," Dunn said of his star.
(10) MINNESOTA: During this week's Big Ten
teleconference, Coach Dan Monson publicly
thanked the people of Minneapolis for helping

him make the transition from Gonzaga to
Minnesota this past year.
Monson also showed his appreciation for the
support of his wife of one year, Darci, who also
helped out. Darci Monson is pregnant with the
couple's first child.
If Darci has a boy, maybe they'll name him
Joel, in honor of departed center and Monson
favorite Joel Przybilla.
(11) NoRTHWESTERN: In just three seasons,
Coach Kevin O'Neill has quickly rivaled Bob
Knight in quotability at press conferences. But
there were no antics this week, as O'Neill com-
plimented the season-long effort of his players,
who kept their heads up despite enduring a 5-24
nightmare of a season.
"I appreciate how hard those kids worked all
year," O'Neill said. "I've enjoyed coaching this
group and I think they're going to be a pretty
good group"

CHICAGO (AP) - First, Butler
ganged up on league MVP Rashad
Phillips. Then after routing Detroit and
earning a trip to the NCAA tournament,
the Bulldogs celebrated in their own
unique way.
They went on the floor, sang the
school fight song and did cartwheels.
"It's just a little celebration we do after
each victory," Butler forward Mike
Marshall said after the Bulldogs routed
Detroit 62-43 Tuesday night to win the
Midwestern Collegiate Conference tour-
nament title.
"We all sing the fight song and then
the top performers for that game, as a
group, do cartwheels. This was pretty
much a team effort, so we all did cart-
wheels. We even talked coach into doing
one."
And why not? Coach Barry Collier
was more than happy to oblige after
declaring Tuesday night's win "the best
game we played all year."
The Bulldogs have been doing a lot of
singing and turning on their hands lately.
They've won a school-record 15 straight,
but none sweeter than Tuesday night.
The 5-foot-10 Phillips got little or no
help from his teammates in Detroit's

lowest scoring game of the season as the
Titans shot just 26 percent (16-of-61).
But that time it was too late for the
Titans, who had been in the NCAA tour-
nament the last two years and won a
first-round game each time. They had
also beaten Butler in last year's MCC
title game, knocking the Bulldogs into
the NIT.
GUTHRIDGE SAYS HE'LL RETURN
NEXT SEASON: Bill Guthridge said he'll
return to coach North Carolina next sea-
son despite criticism from fans and
alumni who say the Tar Heels have
underachieved, and at times played unin-
spired basketball.
The Tar Heels (18-12), the preseason
pick to win the ACC, were ranked as
high as No. 2 in the nation before falling
from the polls for the first time in a
decade after a four-game losing streak in
mid-January.
The team also lost five home games
this season, which tied a school record.
ALABAMA'S COTTON CONSIDERING

he will visit with his family in Los
Angeles over spring break and decide
whether to return for his junior season.
The 6-foot-5 forward is averaging
15.8 points a game.
Cotton's name came up last week
when Nate Cebrun, a runner for sports
agents who is accused of making
improper payments to Auburn star Chris
Porter, said he and Cotton are friends.

ATHENS, Ga. (AP) - Crews clean-
ing up a foul-smelling liquid seeping
from beneath Sanford Stadium must
work quickly to make sure the field is
ready for the University of Georgia's
season-opening football game.
The mysterious liquid already h*
forced the cancellation of, G-Day,
Georgia's popular practice game in
April.
There are no plans to move or post-
pone Georgia's Sept. 2 game with
Georgia Southern, Tom Landrum, exec-
utive assistant to university president
Michael Adams, said Tuesday.
But "we're told they need to begin
very, very soon" for the turf to be
playable, he said
The liquid showed up beneath the st*
dium before the 1999 football season.
An engineering firm hired by the school
last year concluded raw sewage was to
blame, but a firm hired by Athens-
Clarke County found no evidence that
sewage was to blame.
The school has hired another firm to
investigate while workers dig up sod
from the 86,000-seat stadium and haul it
away.
The university already has spenW
$100,000 on repairs and studies.
Replacing the field is expected to cost
more than $1 million.
Three redshirt Utes
suspended for theft
SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -Three
redshirt freshmen on the University
of Utah football team were suspend
ed pending the outcome of felony
theft and forgery charges.
Receivers Anthony Arceneaux and
Justin Walterscheid, and linebacker
Jay Ossai turned themselves in to
prosecutors Monday.
The players are accused of steal-
ing a checkbook and ATM card from
another student's dormitory room on
Feb. 17, according to University of
Utah police.
Police said the players wrote
checks to themselves totaling sever-
al thousand dollars.
A check-cashing business discov-
ered the fraud when it attempted to
verify that the checks were genuine.
The Daily Utah Chronicle, the
university's campus newspaper,
quoted Ossai as saying,
"We did it and we got caught.
We're not going to fight it.
"We're going to take the conse-
quences."
