No. 2 OSU stuffs Blue, 81-
*Buckeyes smother 'M' offense, regain tie for first place
. , ., .
Columbus flooded with
ted sea of hoops success
COLUMBUS - It may be a down year in the Big Ten, but at Ohio
State, spirits are flying high.
:The Buckeyes moved into the No.2 ranking in the national polls yes-
ferday, and if their performance against Michigan is any indication, they
Television announcer Dick Vitale justifiably accused Ohio State of
playing a cupcake non-conference schedule. Georgetown, whom Ohio
State handily defeated, 71-60, represented the only ranked opponent the
Regardless of their pastry-like schedule, the Buckeyes are awesome.
This team is stocked at every position and can do it all. After an impres-
sive 93-85 victory over Indiana in Bloomington three weeks ago, and
last night's 81-65 thrashing of Michigan, the Buckeyes proved their lofty
skills in front of Dicky V and a national television audience.
?While the half-time score was relatively close, 36-29, Ohio State
stood firmly in command. The Buckeye press frustrated the Wolverines
into 13 first-half turnovers, frequently resulting in easy transition baskets.
You see, Michigan wasn't playing Iowa any more - this was the big
"We were handling similar kinds if situations on Saturday," Michi-
gan coach Steve Fisher said. "We had all kinds of problems today. We
tried to dribble it too much for one thing, especially Demetrius (Calip)
If Michigan managed to break the press, tight Buckeye man-to-man
defense took the Wolverines out of their half-court offense. One-on-one
moves by Michigan's guards or the occasional three-point bomb ac-
counted for most of the Wolverines' scoring.
Ohio State proved that its physical play would be too much for the
Wolverines to handle. The Buckeyes combined a ferocious inside scor-
ig attack with their transition buckets to pick apart the Michigan de-
ense and draw three first-half fouls on Eric Riley - setting the stage for
a buckeye offensive explosion in the second half.
Forwards Treg Lee and Perry Carter exploded for some mammoth
dunks, and sixth player Chris Jent exploited holes in Michigan's perime-
ter defense by burying a plethora of jumpers.
The scariest thing for Michigan was that the Buckeyes' leading
scorer, sophomore sensation Jim Jackson, had barely broken double fig-
ures, and yet the Wolverines trailed by ten.
Like in Ann Arbor, Jackson remained relatively quiet for three-fourths
of the game. But he quickly exploded for a myriad of points to open the
Mio State lead to nearly 20 points.
The only thing to slow down the Buckeye attack was a rambunctious
fan sprinting across the floor to obtain some television glory. But Ohio
State quickly tallied another basket once play resumed.
.Things should remain sky-high next year in Columbus. To the Big
Teh's delight, Carter and Lee will finally head to the pros, but the rest

COLUMBUS - Would
possible, just maybe,
mediocre Michigan could
second-ranked Ohio State?
The Buckeyes (10-1 in the Big
Ten, 20-1 overall) proved they de-
served their national ranking be-
fore 13,276 fans at St. John Arena
last night, easily disposing of the
Wolverines (4-7, 11-10), 81-65.
The Buckeyes strengths, height
and quickness, seemed to over-
whelm Michigan all game.
"I'm sore, I'm real sore after
this one," Michigan forward Fred-
die Hunter said. "They're big and
strong. It was rough down there try-
ing to get low and get position."
On the opening Buckeye pos-
session, Ohio State's Treg Lee
tried to post up on Hunter. Even
though Hunter had to give up a few
inches and some pounds to Lee, he
got the better of the Buckeye for-
ward. The senior lost control of the
ball, and Michigan gained posses-
Hunter's scrappy defense kept
Michigan close most of the first
half, as he blocked two shots
within the first 3 minutes of the
game to give the Wolverines an
early 7-2 lead.
"I was a little keyed with all
the hype of the game," Hunter
said. "It's a lot easier to get blocks
when you're helping out on some-
one else's man. They assume
they've gotten by their man and I
just come in and pick up the
Michigan's biggest problem
was hanging onto the ball on the
offensive end. Not only did the
Wolverines struggle getting the
ball by Ohio State's full-court
press, but they couldn't control
theirspasses once they did get be-
yond halfcourt either; the team had
13 first-half turnovers.
"They did a good job of running
behind us and knocking the ball
away," Michigan guard Demetrius
Calip said. "They caused us to
look both ways with their pressure
The Buckeyes were able to
convert on the Michigan mistakes
to build a 20-11 lead. The teams
then traded outside buckets for
awhile before Calip made a spec-
tacular double-pump jumper from
18 feet to end the half with Ohio
State up by seven, 36-29.
The Buckeyes opened the sec-
ond half almost as slowly as they
did the first. Michigan guard
Michael Talley nailed two quick
jumpers to pull Michigan within
five points. But Ohio State coach
Randy Ayers had the advantage of
bringing in one of the best sixth
men in the country, forward Chris
"The thing we said coming out
of the lockerroom was, 'if we
didn't start out well, we'd put in
Jent to stir some things up,"' Ayers
said. "And lucky for us, he was
able to get his stroke down."
The 6-foot-7 junior scored
quickly to build Ohio State's lead
up to 14 points.
"He was the big difference,"
Michigan coach Steve Fisher said.
"Chris lent does for them what we
hope Freddie Hunter does for us.
He provides inspiration and those
kinds of things that you just don't
look at when you read how many
points he scored."
With 9:51 left in the game,
Michigan center Eric Riley be-
came a spectator as he picked up
his fifth foul. At that point, the
game was in the bag for the Buck
Michigan continued turning
over the ball. Talley was the first
offender; the sophomore handed
over the ball 11 times before he
fouled out with 5 minutes left.
"They were constantly pressing
us to a point where you can never
relax," Talley said.

ALPHA CHI RHO FRATERNITY
is Reactivating the University of Michigan Chapter
By Anthony Rao
Former University of Houston foot-
ball coach Jack Pardee said it best: "This
course was so helpful to several of my
players, I made the whole football team
take the course."
Pardee read about a memory seminar
held by noted memory expert and teacher
Alvin Jackson and sent three players who
needed to pass some important tests in
order to stay in school. Uncertain that
anyone can be taught photographic mem-
ory, Pardee sent athletic department aca-
demic advisor Dr. Jim Berlow as an ob-
In one three hour session Mr. Jackson
took three college freshmen, whose grades
were so poor they were not allowed to
practice football, and transformed them
into students who can perform studying
and recall tasks better than the brightest
students on campus.
Since Dr. Berlow took part in the
class, he admits his recall and memory
increased six-fold. He wished Jackson's
course was available when he studied for
To test the athletes' increased mem-
ory skills, Jackson asked the trio to
memorize this number,
91852719521639092112, well enough to
recall it in 13 weeks. It took them an
average of 2 minutes. This reporter at-
tended the same seminar and witnessed
them master German, Pharmacy, Anat-
omv names and faces, and Microbiologi-
perfect G.P.A.s who wish to cut their study
time in half while maintaining high
grades," Jackson said.
"85% of our education is memoriza-
tion, therestis application andlogic. I will
show you how to read your textbooks, his-
tory, anatomy, economics, pharmacy and
business ONCE, and know it so well you
will be able to recall it by page number or
tuition is free," Jackson added.
"I know 321 memory techniques and
teach my students the one that fits them
best, including card counting. Right now
students use the "Rote" memory tech-
nique. Under "Rote" students are told to
go over and over what they wish to leam.
As far as I am concerned, "Rote" is tech-
nique number 321, and I have 320 better
techniques. What student has that much
time to repeat information enough times to
maintain top grades? A student has noth-
ing to lose by taking my course. I.will
teach them techniques to read it once and
know it by paragraph and page number, or
the class is free, absolutely," says Jackson
Jackson will be at The University of
Michigan on Thursday, Feb.14 in Room D
of the Michigan League for two sessions.
Section 1 begins at 1:00 pm. Section 2
begins at 6:00 pm.
The tuition for the 3 1/2 hour session
