Some advice for Duke:
1no y it while you can
INDIANAPOLIS - It seems so long ago, Rumeal's free throws.
South University. The China Gate awning. And of course, Michigan's
first-ever basketball national championship.
Yeah, we celebrated. From Ann Arbor to Seattle, Wolverine fans
exploded with an unbelievable furor.
Two years ago today, Michigan 80, Seton Hall 79 in overtime -
"Shock The World Boys!" - let the festivities begin.
However, by April 4, the celebration was interrupted with a flurry
f questions. "Will Bo hire Fisher?" And more importantly, "Can we
do it again?"
We didn't savor our victory. It seemed to come so easily. Bill
Frieder quit, and one month and six victories later, Michigan became na-
tional champions.
And why shouldn't we have expected to win it again? Sure we were
losing Glen Rice, but the rest of the team would be back, a year older,
and we thought a year better, too. But the 1989-90 Wolverines couldn't
even reach the Sweet 16 - so much for repeats.
Duke's fans should know better. The national title certainly did not
come easily for them. After four straight Final Four appearances, five
n six years, and nine trips overall, college basketball's perennial
ridesmaid finally made it to the altar. Yet the fans, along with every-
one else, wanted to talk about immediately obtaining a second title, al-
most forgetting how hard it was to accomplish the first.
The students in Durham celebrated with a bonfire. Other fans sur-
rounded and harassed Jimmy and Dickie V. in ESPN's makeshift studio
in Indianapolis' Union Station. But the real celebration awaited the
team at its hotel some 15 minutes away.
When the players finally arrived, the fans greeted them with a deaf-
ening cheer of approval. But once the players went up to their rooms and
Duke's coach Mike Krzyzewski came down to speak, the fans already
Ianted to talk about next year.
While some fans chanted "No more Bud Grant!" (equating Coach K
with the former Minnesota Vikings coach who lost all four Super'
Bowls he coached), others screamed for a repeat. Duke, which has al-
ready been unofficially tabbed as a pre-season No. 1 for next year, will
lose only one starter, Greg Koubek, and seldom-used sub Clay Buckley.
The Devils have also reeled in one of the nation's best recruiting classes.
But Coach K has seen pre-season favorites fall short of expectations
and more than any other person, he will want to relish this victory.
Unfortunately, as head coach, he will have to prepare for next season.
-He left this title for the fans, whom he thanked for being the best in
college basketball.
"This is really nice, enjoy it," he added. "Hopefully we'll get an-
other one."
No predictions, no expectations. Just someday, he hopes he can bring
Duke a second championship. The fans should heed his advice. Take this
victory and milk it for all it's worth. Victory is a fleeting moment and
dynasties are hard to come by. If the Blue Devils' fans don't believe it,
they should just ask Michigan.

Daily Baseball Writer
For the last month Michigan1
coach Bill Freehan has been search-t
ing for the elusive hurler to fill ther
fourth spot in Michigan's pitchingi
rotation.e
Yesterday it was rookie Brent
Cymbalski's chance to claim that
spot. Unfortunately for Freehan and1
the frosh, the search goes on. Afterr
Cymbalski was knocked for fourt
runs in a little under three innings,t
Freehan will probably have to look1
elsewhere.
So far into the season Freehan has
not had to worry too much about
the hole in his rotation since thet
Wolverines have not had a packed
schedule. But now April has arrived,
collegiate basketball is over, and
baseball is taking its place. There are1
games almost every other day, many
of which are doubleheaders; Freehan1
needs to find his fourth starter in ac
hurry.t
In a sloppy game played by both
teams, cross-town rival Eastern1
Michigan managed to outlast thec
visiting Wolverines, 7-5. The
Wolverines (1-1 Big Ten, 13-10t
overall) committed four errors en
route to their second consecutive
loss to Eastern (7-12). But Eastern
wasn't free from its own fieldingc
problems, shortstop Kevin Rogers
picked up two of the team's three!
errors.
"We didn't play well, but we
pitched pretty well," Eastern coach
Roger Coryell said.
Coryell, like Freehan, is lookingl
for pitchers, but Coryell claims1
that he doesn't have any members of
his rotation set. Consequently, the
Eastern coach used a total of five
pitchers over the regulation game in
preparation for the start of the
MAC season next week.
And pitch well they did. The
winner, Doug Martin gave up three
runs, none of which were earned. The
other four pitchers combined for six
innings, giving. up two runs, of

which only one was earned.
Dennis Konuszewski (2-2), who
has been pitching well recently, was
tagged with the loss. The sopho-
more pitched five-plus innings, giv-
ing up four runs, three of them
earned, while striking out two and
walking two.
Michigan and Eastern were
locked at 4-4 through the third in-
ning, but the Wolverines were lucky
to only surrender four runs up to
that point. In the first inning,
Eastern left three men on base.
Cymbalski then managed to pitch
around jams in the second and third
when Eastern stranded two and
three baserunners, respectively.
"We got behind early,"
Michigan co-captain Dan Ruff said.
"And it's tough when you get be-
hind."
Eastern's two runs in the fourth
proved to be enough as Michigan
could only manage one more run in
the fifth.
"We got some guys in scoring
position," Ruff said. "But we just
couldn't get them across the plate."
Tim Flannelly, Michigan's third
baseman, was one of the two bright
spots for the Wolverines. Flannelly
went 3 for 4 on the day with a dou-
ble, two singles and a walk. The
other bright spot was right-fielder
Todd Winston, who had been strug-
gling as of late but managed to go 2
for 4 and score a run.
But Eastern had a better day at
the plate as first baseman Brandon
White went 4 for 4, while Aldo
Pecorilli and Charles Richardson
had two hits apiece.
"We did a few good things,"
Coryell said. "We were sloppy de-
fensively today, but we bunted
pretty well."
Tomorrow, Michigan heads to
the University of Detroit for the
first game of a home-and-home se-
ries with the Titans. Michigan will
be looking for career win No. 60
against the Titans. The Wolverines
lead the series, 59-20.

Season-long improvement and
team chemistry were both evident as
the Michigan men's rugby team
romped through all four of its
matches last Saturday.
The collegiate-side began the
Wolverine dominance with the
largest margin of victory of the
ay's four games. The all-student
Michigan squad rolled over its
counterpart from Lawrence Tech-
nological University, 34-3. Field
Captain Brian Williamson led the
Wolverine charge.
"(Williamson) went all out
throughout the entire game," co-
captain John Swis said. "Aggres-
siveness is the name of the game in
,Mugby and he set the tone for the
entire team."
Senior Matt Gable scored his
first try of the year, while Jason
Kreta, Ben Hanna and Brian Howard
also notched tries for the collegiate-
side, which is now 2-0 on the season.
Not to be outdone, the Michigan
club squads followed their younger
teammates' lead by defeating clubs
from Scioto Valley, Ohio and
jWindsor, Ontario.
Michigan's A-side won the first
of the club matches, defeating
Scioto Valley's A-side, 20-14.
"This was an important win for

so well against a team of such cal-
iber."
In the following B-side matches,
Michigan crushed the Scioto Valley
B-side and the Windsor club team,
34-10, and, 18-10, respectively.
Senior Jim Staples led Michigan's
attack, scoring two tries against
Scioto Valley in his first game this
season.
