Kansas 'wins'
Big Eight crown
LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Tony
Farmer scored 18 points, and Ne-
braska took advantage of eight
consecutive missed free throws by
Kansas late in the game for an 85-
75 victory.
Nebraska (24-6, 9-5) finished
third in the Big Eight, while
Kansas (21-6, 10-4) fell into a tie
for the title with Oklahoma State.
After trailing by 9 at halftime,
Kansas cut the Nebraska lead to
47-45 with 15:19, remaining.
Kansas kept it close until going
cold from the free throw line.
Kansas missed eight straight
free throws in five-minute stretch,
while during the same stretch,
Nebraska hit 7 of 8 from the line to
take a 77-71 lead.
Texas stuns No. 3
Arkansas, 99-86
AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - Ben-
ford Williams scored 22 points,
and Joey Wright and Locksley
Collie each added 19 Sunday as
Texas defeated No. 3 Arkansas in
a disappointing finale for the Ra-
zorbacks as they leave the South-
west Conference.
Texas fans chanted "SEC,
SEC" with 1:44 to play as Texas
(20-7) built its lead to 14 over
Arkansas (28-3), which moves
next season to the Southeastern
Arkansas, which already has
clinched its third straight league
championship, was shooting for a
16-0 conference finish. Texas (13-3
in the SWC) gained its third
consecutive 20-win season, which
is a school record.
Arkansas' lead grew to 14 at
61-47 with 17:39 to go, but Texas
went ahead to stay, 73-72, at the
9:46 mark.

were calling pins for Iowa a lot
quicker than that, but the kid is a
national champion and they gave
him the benefit of the doubt."
Brands and Iowa assistant
coach Barry Davis were evasive to
questions about the pin.
"I won the match," Brands said.
"I don't know if I was pinned, but
Joey has improved a lot from last
year. .,
Davis added: "If the ref didn't
call it a pin, it wasn't a pin."
Brands took control of the
match after that and went on for a
24-14 victory, but not before tem-
pers flared. Brands roughed Gilbert
out of bounds after the whistle on
two occasions without receiving a
penalty. After another skirmish
near the boundary, Gilbert ran
back after Brands following the
"I didn't hear the whistle,"
Gilbert said. "I let him frustrate
me, but I wanted to be rough and
tough with him. Maybe next time I
can intimidate him."
Brands saw it another way.
"He came after me three sec-
onds after the whistle," Brands
said. "People give me a lot of crap
for rough stuff, but I would never
do something like that."
While there was controversial
officiatinginBormet's match, it
was much more subdued than
Gilbert's. Bormet faced second-
ranked Tom Ryan of Iowa. Bormet
had three near takedowns ignored
by the officials in his 4-3 defeat.
"If it weren't that close, it
wouldn't have come down to the
refs," Bormet said. "When you're
out there wrestling, you don't know
if you have it (a takedown), but it
sure felt like I did."
While Bahr was disappointed in
the outcome, he did not disagree

with the calls.
"There were close calls that
would have put us in the position
to win," Bahr said. "But Sean's
got to get over that. He now knows
he can go out there with the top
Michigan's third disappointing
defeat in the finals was Lehrke's 4-
2 overtime loss to Mike Funk of
After a scoreless first period,
Funk got on the board with a quick
escape to open the second. The
only other scoring during regula-
tion was a Lehrke escape early in
the third period.
Halfway through the extra ses-
sion, each player was penalized
one point for stalling. Lehrke fol-
lowed that with a near takedown,
but he couldn't finish off Funk.
Then with 30 seconds left, Funk
scored a takedown near the bound-
ary, providing the winning margin.
Michigan's other senior, Yaffai,
lo.,t by a wider margin in the fi-
nals. He was overmatched in his
first Big Ten final.
"I was a little flat out there,"
Yaffai said. "I think The (Grand
Finalist) March affected me. They
made a bigger deal of it this year,
but it's also a lot different when
you're in it."
The other six champions were:
Terry Brands (126) of Iowa, Troy
Steiner (142) of Iowa, Matt De-
maray (150) of Wisconsin, Kevin
Randleman (167) of Ohio State,
Marty Morgan (177) of Minnesota,
and Jon Llewellyn (HWT) of Illi-
Along with those four wrestlers,
Michigan qualified three others -
James Rawls (142), Lanny Green
(177), and Phil Tomek (HWT) -
for the NCAA Championships in
Iowa City.
Green was Michigan's lone vic-
tor during Sunday's competition as
he won his third-place bout against
Keith Davison of Wisconsin, 7-1.
Green avenged an earlier loss to
Davison which had cost him a
higher seed in the tournament.
"I was really happy with the
way I wrestled today," Green said.
"I got revenge against a couple of

guys and feel confident for
Rawls opened the tournament
slowly, losing a tough 4-3 double
overtime decision to fifth-ranked
Jeff Lyons of Indiana. Lyons scored
only one point in the match, but
Rawls was penalized three point
for stalling, including the decisiva
point in the sudden-death overtime.
While Bahr was disappointed
with the loss, he was not critical of
the calls.
"James has a tendency to back
away from his opponent in order to
create space for his moves," Bahr
said. "We've been getting on his
case about this all year. It's not as
if he's deliberately dogging it, bu@
it looks like stalling."
After posting three straight vic-
tories in the consolation bracket,
Rawls reached the third-place bout
against Tim McClellan of Purdue.
While Rawls was not penalized in
this match, he still felt he was too
"I need to put more pressure on
my opponent instead of lagging
back," Rawls said. "I need to
change my style before Nationals
and attack more."
Tomek also placed fourth for
the Wolverines as he lost 2-1 to
Don Whipp of Michigan State.
Whipp used his 25-pound advan-
tage to push Tomek around
throughout the match, which led to
a stalling call against Tomek that
provided the difference in the
match. 0
Brian Harper (150) of Michigan
nearly qualified for the NCAAs. He
overcame a first-round loss to
Willy Short of Minnesota, 8-5, be-
fore posting two straight victories
in the consolation bracket.
Harper then received a rematch
with Short and lost a tough 2-1 de-
cision in which the decisive point
came on a stalling call. Harper,
then lost the fifth-place match to
Adam Caldwell of Indiana, 6-3.
The loss cost Harper an NCAA in-
Michigan's other two wrestlers,
Mike Mihalic (126) and Kevin
Williams (167), both lost their first
two matches and were eliminated.

Summer 1991

(July 3 - August 18)
Earn EIGHT HOURS of University credit for studying Introductory Geology in the Rocky Mountains, including:
" Yellowstone National Park " Grand Tetons " Dinosaur National Monument
" Craters of the Moon "
This ideal "outdoor classroom" offers some of the most scenic and interesting geology in the entire Rocky Mountain region. Mountain uplifts and deep
erosion have exposed a variety of Earth structures and rocks of diverse age and origin. The effects of alpine glaciation, landslides, stream erosion, and
a host of other geological phenomena provide an unmatched introduction to geology. The geological history of the Teton, Gros Ventre, and Wind River
mountain ranges is fully recorded in a sequence of fossiliferous rocks which in many cases can be interpreted in terms of processes still at work today.
The University of Michigan field course is taught at Camp Davis, a permanent facility built by the University in 1929. Camp Davis is about 20 miles south
of Jackson, Wyoming, near the junction of the Overthrust Belt, the Snake River Plain, the Wind River Range, and the Green River Basin; the Tetons lie
to the north, the Bros Ventre Range to the east, and the Basin and Range Province to the west. It is simply an excellent place to learn about geology. The
camp is located on the Hoback River near its junction with the Snake River; the trout fishing is great.
The field camp was constructed by The University of Michigan in order to provide a teaching facility in the Rocky Mountains. Camp Davis living quarters
consist of rustic cabins with wood-burning stoves and running water. Showers and laundry facilities are shared by students; meals are served mess-hall
style in a large dining room. Camp facilities include classrooms, a first-aid station, a large recreation hall, a softball diamond, and a volleyball court. Other
facilities are available in Jackson; transportation to town is provided regularly.
Geological Sciences 116 is an in-depth course cdvering all aspects of geology. The thrust of this course is to teach students about minerals and rocks in
a variety of settings. Approximately two weeks of the course are spent on trips to other parts of Wyoming as well as Nevada, Montana, Idaho, and Utah.
You will examine minerals, rocks, and fossils in their natural settings. Although lectures are a part of the course, most of your time will be spent in the
field where instruction is often on an individual basis.
The camp Davis teaching staff consists of faculty from the Department of Geological Sciences at The University of Michigan and visiting faculty from
other universities. The course is typically staffed by three faculty members and two graduate teaching assistants.
Geological Sciences 116 carries EIGIHT (8) credit hours and is equivalent to a two-term sequence of introductory geology. It largely satisfies the natural
science distribution requirement in the College of Literature, Science, and the Arts.
No prerequisites. High School seniors and university students are encouraged to apply. Entering freshpersons could arrive on campus in the fall term
with 8 hours of science credit out of the way by studying rocks and minerals in the mountains of the West.
Geological Sciences 116 runs for 6 weeks. The dates for the 1991 summer course will be from July 3, when the caravan leaves Ann Arbor, until August
18, the day that the caravan returns to Ann Arbor.
