Lacrosse buries Purdue, 25-1
Two Big Ten teams advance to Final Four
The eighth-ranked Michigan

Purdue 25-1 Saturday at Ooseterban
Fieldhouse, improving its record to
The 25-1 romp was "not as close

Michigan coach John Paul said.
"This was one of those games that

By the second quarter, the
Wolverines had already emptied
their bench, and concentrated on
maintaining possesssion instead of
scoring. But they couldn't help
themselves, scoring a lofty seven in
the second period.
"Both teams knew it would be a
long night," Paul said.

Martvus, normally , a defender,
notched his first goal of the season
with the switch.
"It felt great to finally get one in,"
Martus said. "Throughout the season
a few opportunities had come up, but
I never capitalized. This game gave
me a chance to score and have my
friends stop making fun of me."
The lopsided match also gave

game experience. Menkowitz played
the entire second half, but only had
to push one shot aside.
Michigan's victory extended its
conference winning streak to 19
games. The win keeps the Wolverines
firmly atop the CCLA rankings with
a 5-0 conference record.
None of Michigan's upcoming
games are against soft opponents, as
next week's homestand will include
games against No. 6 Virginia,

said. "The guys keep playing hard

doubt we understand the importance
of the next two weeks."

AUBURN HILLS (AP) - The
Spartans can slambodies with the best of
them. Add patience to their game and
they are almost unbeatable.
The top-seeded Spartans used another
late run to beat Iowa State 75-64 in the
Midwest Regional final Saturday night,
advancing to the Final Four for the sce-
ond straight year.
"Coach always says tough players
win," said senior forward Morris
Peterson, who scored all but five of his
18 points in the second half. "And I
thought down the stretch, we showed
how tough we were."

WEST LAFAYETTE (AP) - Fifteen
people were in custody yesterday after
Purdue fans overturned a dumpster and
started bonfires after the Boilermakers'
loss in the NCAA tournament.
More than 300 students took to the
streets Saturday night and early Sunday
after the Boilermakers' 64-60 defeat by
Wisconsin in the West Regional final.
Students wandered around the campus
causing damage, before police in riot
gear used tear gas to disperse the crowd.

booked on charges of public intoxica-

St. John's Barkley
JAMAICA, NEW YORK (AP) -
After a sophomore season filled with
controversy, St. John's point guard Erick
Barkley announced today that he will
forego the final two years of his colle-
giate career, declaring himself eligible
for the NBA draft in June.
Barkley twice was suspended by the
NCAA this season and was involved in
a lockerroom scuffle with senior guard
Bootsy Thornton at halftime of a Big
East semifinal game against Miami.
Although he led the Red Storm to its
first Big East Conference tournament
title since 1985, the 6-foot-1 Brooklyn
native scored 14 points without an assist
in an upset loss to Gonzaga a week ago
in the second round of the NCAA
Barkley was named to the All-Big
East First Team this season.
In 1998-99, he was a member of the
conference's All-Rookie squad after
helping the Storm to the "Elite Eight" in
last year's NCAA Tournament.
UBURN HILLS, Mich. -
Isn't it nice to play at home?
That's essentially what this
weekend was for Michigan State -
two home games along its red-carpet
path to the Final Four.
Michigan State's survival was
music to the ears of Craig Thompson
and the tournament selection com-
mittee, who made sure to slot the
Spartans as the No. I seed in the
Midwest Region so that the NCAA
would have at least one marquee
team in the Final Four.
Perhaps the most entertaining
moment of Michigan State's victory
over Iowa State on Saturday hap-
pened in the last 10 seconds of the
Iowa State coach Larry Eustachy,
livid at officiating that essentially
cost them the game, did what every
coach in America would like the
opportunity to do just once - storm
the court and tell the referees what he
thinks of them.
Eustachy was ejected for his
overzealousness - and also for mak-
ing contact with one official, chasing
all three members of the crew all over
the court and using potty language.
Some will undoubtedly call
Eustachy's behavior "unsportsman-
like", "disgraceful" or "conduct detri-
mental to his school." These are pco-
ple that don't know the game.
I take it a different way. I call it
loyalty, loyalty shown by Eustachy to
his players. As their coach, Eustachy
is the man designated to fight for
them, lobby for them and stick up for
'The referees ripped the Cyclones
off and cost them a trip to the Final
Four. Shaking hands and saying "it's
the breaks" might be appropriate in
Little League, but there is too much
at stake to take things that lightly.
Marcus Fizer's "moving screen," a
call that was made 46 feet from the
basket with 4:01 remaining in the
game, was ridiculous. Fizer didn't
move; he was run into and staggered
backward after the collision.
Instead of Iowa State having the
ball, up three points with under four
minutes to go, Michigan State shot
the one-and-one as a result of the
foul, cutting the lead to one.
Later, the referees couldn't decide
whether or not to call a block or
charge on Iowa State's Paul Shirley,
who caught a lob pass two feet away
from the basket and knocked over
Charlie Bell. But Shirley's feet hadn't
touched the ground yet, and Bell
If the foul was called on Bell,
Shirley would've shot a one-and-one.
Instead, a double foul was called,
which resulted in Shirley's fifth per-
sonal and disqualification.

Final Four scalpers shipped out of town
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Scalpers
banned from selling NCAA Final Four
tickets in Indianapolis have taken their
business across the county line.
At the prodding of the NCAA, offi-
cials passed an ordinance outlawing tick-
et scalping in Marion County. The ban
applies only to the Final Four.
"Seeing a bunch of hawkers is not an
appealing atmosphere," said Maribeth
Smith, an organizer with the NCAA.
The desire is to make this a wholesome,
environment. This is college sports."
The police did come around to give
out copies of the ordinance to make sure
everyone is aware, said Ticket Source's
The 1998 ordinance allows ticket
holders to sell their tickets - but only at
face value, or for a small profit. The
price of the ticket can't be raised by more
than SI10 under the rule.
The Indianapolis Police Department
plans to have officers stationed in loca-
tions where scalping has been rampant,
including outside the RCA Dome.
