Healthy gymnasts set

SPORTING VIEWS

Two decades after capturing its
last national title, the Michigan
men's gymnastics team heads to
Columbus for the NCAA
Regionals. While Michigan does not
expect a repeat of 1971, it does hope
to make a strong showing in the
competition this weekend.
"This is what we've been gearing
up for all season long," Michigan
coach Bob Darden said. "Our goal is
to do well enough this weekend to

make NCAA Nationals."
When Michigan hits the St. John
Arena mat Saturday night, one thing
it will not be is surprised. The
Wolverines have already competed
this season against every team it
will face. In addition, all six of the
other Big Ten teams will be present.
But this should not make the up-
coming meet any easier. Michigan's
qualifying scores place it ninth in
the 10-team field.
One advantage Michigan will
have is health. Glenn Hill, sidelined
for the last six weeks with a wrist
injury, returns to the lineup on
pommel horse. Ruben Ceballos,
kept off floor exercise and vault for
a month with a sore knee, will also
make his return at Regionals.
"With juniors Glenn and Ruben
back," Darden said, "we'll be much
more experienced. They should help
a lot."

When you think of Las Vegas you think of prostitution, gambling,
prize fights and other sources of societal decadence. And then you think
of basketball.
For the past few years, Nevada-Las Vegas has dominated college bas-
ketball. Unfortunately for the Runnin' Rebels, the team suffers from an
image as bad as the town of Vegas'.
We've all heard the accusations and rumors in the media - hotel bills
going unpaid, illegal incentives and illegal recruiting, and UNLV coach
Jerry Tarkanian's underhandedness.
However, the Rebels aren't as bad as they are made out to be. In fact,
there are some little-known facts about the UNLV basketball program
which counter the Rebels' image.
The team's most impressive statistic this year is not its long winning
streak or its average victory margin per game, but its graduation rate. All
six Rebels seniors, including All-American forwards Stacey Augmon
and Larry Johnson, are graduating, a rate far above the national average.
What makes their graduations more impressive is that Augmon4
Johnson, and teammate Greg Anthony all passed up last year's NBA
draft -and millions of dollars - to stay in school and continue toward
their degrees.
UNLV can boast of other academic achievements. Seven players on
this year's squad possessed grade-point averages of 3.0 or higher. Team
members also assist third-graders in improving'their reading skills, and
work in numerous anti-drug programs.
In addition, Anthony runs his own T-shirt business. It has become so
successful that the NCAA forced Anthony to relinquish his scholarship
because of the income he was earning. Anthony's business success clearly
contradicts the common image of the uneducated UNLV athlete.
Many are quick to criticize Tarkanian, especially for his recruitment
of players like Augmon and Johnson, who come from city ghettos and
have criminal records and minimal academic achievement. However, these
critics fail to acknowledge the final results Tarkanian produces.
Many of these players not only graduate with an education, but also
as class individuals with promising futures ahead of them. Tarkanian
provides underprivileged city youth with opportunities that many have
taken advantage of and benefitted from.
UNLV boasts redeeming qualities the media has chosen to ignore
which should not go unnoticed. a
