Daily Sports Writer

YPSILANTI (AP) - Jim Boone,
who revived a stagnant Robert Morris
program, is now faced with doing the
rsame at Eastern Michigan.
Boone, who guided Robert Morris to
within a game of the NCAA Tournament
this season, was introduced at a news
conference yesterday as the new coach
of the Eagles, replacing Milton Barnes.
Robert Morris won just nine games in
the two seasons preceding Boone's
arrival at the school in 1996, but he com-
piled a 33-24 record over the last two
years.
Tar Heels to hold court
in Indy, not Chapel Hill
CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) -
North Carolina guards Ed Cota and
Terrence Newby no longer have a court
date that conflicts with a possible
appearance in Monday's NCAA title
game.
Cota and Newby had been scheduled
to appear in court Monday to face
charges in a Halloween night brawl.
,*But the hearing was delayed Tuesday
for the fourth time since December. No
rnew date was set,

The big inningecontinues to plague
the Michigan baseball pitchers.
Freshman Brad McCloskey is the
latest to be victimized, giving up three
runs in the first inning of Michigan's
11-4 loss to Western Michigan yester-
day. McCloskey allowed five runs in
three innings before being removed by
Michigan coach Geoff Zahn.
"He was keyed up quite a bit and he
got behind hitters. Then he had to come
in with the fastball, and they knew it,"
Zahn said. "When hitters know what is
coming, they're obviously better hit-
ters."
ln his first start at Ray Fisher
Stadium, McCloskey gave up eight hits
and two walks. He became the fifth
Michigan starter in a row to get the los-
ing decision.
"Basically, I was telling him in the
bullpen, when he was showing signs of
being nervous, that he was overthrow-

ing," Zahn said. "Hie has a tendency to
jumnp at the plate, and I told him to
relax and settle down and throw strikes
like he has been for most of the year."
In his last two outings - appear-
ances against Minnesota and No. 18
Miami - McCloskey pitched 4. 1
scoreless innings.
CORRECTING THE MISTAKES:
Sophomore Bobby Korecky will be on
the hill today for the Wolverines with
the unenviable task of halting the
team's eight-game winless streak when
Michigan hosts Bowling Green.
"It's on the pitcher~s shoulders a lot
to avoid big innings and walks. If I can
stay out of the big innings, I think our
hitting will pick us right up," Korecky
said.
As difficult as it is to utter the phrase
this early in the season, the Wolverines

appear mentally to be going into the
game with their backs against the wall.
"It all comes down to having confi-
dence in each other," Korecky said.
"It's very important that we win
(today)."
One of the major problems for the
staff has been spending too much time
pitching from the stretch. Walks, hits
and errors have prevented Michigan
starters from truly finding their
rhythm.
"We've struggled a little bit in the
field, and all of a sudden, one thing
leads to another, and guys are on base
who shouldn't be. I think our pitching
is okay right now, we're just not putting
a full game together," Korecky said.
Korecky enters the contest with a
6.62 ERA and a 1-1 record. He worked
2.2 innings against Minnesota Friday.
