against a darn good Buffalo1 team
(the Danes defeated Buffalo 66-58
earlier in the season), and the
strength of the east division of the
SUNYAC compared to Ihc west
division. When wc gave the national
committee our recommendations,
we gave I hem the four teams I hat
were eventually picked, and wc also
asked them to consider the Buffalo
situation — wc wanted them to at
least know that there were other
teams in the cast with good records".
Then the national committee voted
unanimously for Albany,"
"Albany got in because of the
strength of their schedule," said
Tom Murphy, basketball coach and
athletic director al Hamilton, and a
member of the East Regional selection committee. "And Ihc last game
at Buffalo went four overtimes, so
it's obvious thai it was u pretty
equal game. If Buffalo had beaten
them by 10 or 15 points, they would
have been in. But based on the
closeness of the game, and their 1-1
record against each other, and looking at their schedules and comparative scores, Albany gels it. Buffalo has beaten nobody with a winning record — They've only beaten
So the loss to the Bulls did not
leave the Danes eliminated, but it
certainly left them frustrated. Buffalo used ihc small court to their advantage, laying back in a zone

Albany postmen managed just three
field goals among them. But guards
Winston Royal and Rob Chine provided the Danes with early 12-6 and
19-12 leads, and they seemed on ihc
verge of forcing the Bulls out of
their zone. However,Albany shot 41
percent during the game, allowing
Buffalo lo slick with their defense,
despite repeated slow-downs by the
Danes. At the half, it was Albany
holding a 21-20 lead; after regulation play, it was 36-36; then lied al
38 after one overtime, 41 after the
second, 45 after three extra periods,
before Buffalo exploded for 20
. points in the fourth overtime.
"I assumed they would play a
zone," said Sauers aflcr the game.
"They played us man-to-man the
first lime. But wc didn't shoot very,
well, and their zone made
everything jammed up in the middle, and they were bigger than wc
were, so wc couldn't pass Ihc ball
over them."
"Wc gol into a quick lead, so wc
were content lo hold the ball out,"
said Royal, Ihc Dane captain.
"They play on that small court, and
they have good height. They jusi
didn't switch lo a man-lo-man."
"The zone is our best defense,"
Buffalo coach'Bill Hughes said.
"You saw what they did Ihc few
times we went man-to-mau — they
killed us. I thought they did a good
job against our zone, but we have a
good zone, and it's tough to beat."
Despite their difficulties, Albany
still had four golden opportunities
to win the game — four shots that
could have clinched a Dane victory
— but each chance came up empty.

There was an unlikely series of
events at the SUNYAC tournament!
in Buffalo last weekend, resulting in
some anxious moments for the
Albany Slate basketball team. But
Sunday evening, the Danes received
the news they had been wailing for
— Albany, for the second year in a
row, was in the NCAA playoffs.
The Danes will face St. Lawrence
tonight in the first round of the
Division III East Regional in
Potsdam, while the SUNYAC
Champion Potsdam Bears (24-3).
will host Stony Brook (18-8) in the
second game.
"Any one of the four teams can
win it," said Albany coach Dick
Sauers. "It's really up for grabs.
Potsdam, has a tremendous advantage by playing on their home
court, but they have already lost
three home games this season.
Whoever can gel it going will win it,
and I feel the winner of the East will
go a long way. Wc have as good a
chance as anybody."
That chance was almost blown in
Buffalo's cozy Clark Hall last week,
where the lop four squads from the
conference's cast and wesi divisions
met to determine the SUNYAC title
and the automatic bid to the
playoffs. After Potsdam got by
Buffalo State, 54-56, on Friday, the
Danes and Buffalo squared off in
what turned out to be a slowmotion marathon. It took regula-1

lion play and four overtimes to
separate the two teams, and in the
end, almost three hours after it
began, the Bulls came away with a
65-57 victory. The next night, in
their final impression on the NCAA
selection committee, Albany needed
a convincing decision over the 11-15
Buffalo Stale Bengals. The Danes
came through with a 98-61 trouncing of the Bengals, and then watched as Potsdam's Ed Jachim hit two
free throws with 24 seconds left to

"Wc felt there were several teams
in the east of NCAA calibre," said
Dave Oeorr, chairman of the Division 111 Eastern Regional selection
committee over ihc phone on Monday. "There was ferocious competition between Albany and Buffalo

something finally had to give, and
in the final extra session, the Bulls
broke things open. Bouie and his 14
rebounds had fouled out one overtime before, and his replacement,
6-5 freshman Kenny Jones, stole the
show. His offensive rebound basket

Albany's Pine Hill "Student Ghetto" was the scene of yet another
incident in this year's wave of downtown incidents yesterday. According to Albany Police Lieutenant Detective John Damino, a man
entered a first floor apartment near Alumni Quad through a window
at approximately 3 am Monday.
He then entered ihc room of a female SUNYA student, placed his
hands around her neck and said, "I'll only be here a few minutes."
The woman reportedly screamed and the intruder fled through the
kitchen door.
Albany Police Sergeant Daniel Nicholson described Ihe intruder as
5" 10" in height and wearing a dark ski hat and a dark waist-length
leather jacket. His age and race have not been determined.
According to Damino, ihe incident is not related to the work of
the "Pine Hills Toucher," whom he claims is actually a composite
name of two or three people.
Damino pointed oui thai two intruders involved in rapes have been
apprehended downtown. While previous incidents attributed to the
"Toucher" were sexually related, yesterday's break-in was not, according lo police.
Damino believes that another two individuals involved in
downtown crimes are still at large.
Albany police are following up the Pine Hills crimes by issuing

Frustrated b i n undaunted,
Senaior Kennedy tried to smoke ihe
President out o f the While House.
Look at the record, Ihe Senaior implored. Inflation at fourteen percent, the economy in ruins, foreign
affairs in a jumble. It was a struggle
but it seems thai Kennedy's pleas
had a limited impact on the New
Hampshire voters.
Pollsters were widely predicting a
2 l o 1 margin o f victory f o r the
President, especially damaging in
Kennedy's backyard. But the final
results were much closer than thai:
Carter, forty-nine percent -- Kennedy, ihirty-eight percent. Certainly
not the victory thai Kenned) claims
it lo be, but he has cut inlo some o f
Cartel's support. A n d who knows?
As Ihe repealed attempts to free ihe
hostages in Iran continue to no
avail, i f ihe Soviets continue to
scoff ai Caller's insistence dial they
withdraw from Afghanistan, mid it
inflation continues lo race along al
record rales, perhaps Ihe Senaior
can convince the voters to pul his
own personal life aside and give him
tiie chance l o tackle the country's
problems. With tlie Massachusetts
and Vermont primaries next, the
pollsters should proceed with caution.
As for Ihe Republicans, the
favorite questions are, who is in Ihe
lead' this week, and more importantly, who will be on lop nexl
week? The biggest surprise o f New
Hampshire was Ihe shockingly huge
victory won by Ronald Reagan over
a field o f si.v challengers. Remember

pollsters who all said thai Bush and
Reagan were running neck and neck
in New Hampshire? Well, all this
might as well be forgotten. Reagan
received fifty percent o f the vole.
Bush was fuzzy on the issues. As he
received more and more press attention, his stands became less and less
clear (sound like a H)76 candidate?). The second, more crucial
occurrence was the S N A F U ' d
debalc between Reagan and Bush in
Nashua, N.I 1. Bush was labelled as
arrogani and selfish by the other
candidates from his own parly.
Reagan came out smelling like a
rose, and looking like he belongs in
the Ro<c Garden. Thai evenl, more
than anything else, confirmed for
the voters what Bush's opponents
have been trying to poriray all
along -- thai Bush is a Yale

and comment brilliantly on the action, but they
don't hold up as action in themselves. Hence .
a majority of the numbers seem excessive and
too long (especially the tedious finale). The
film has no narrative or structural backbone,
so ft comes off looking like a series of loosely
connected production' numbers. The. best
routines are the ones that lake place in the
realistic realms of the storyline, of these the
"Air Eroticon" number is the best, The mixed
emotions come back again, however, because
even the most Indulgent routines are so damn
good you can't help admiring them. They are
so superbly staged and photographed that you
wish they had a stronger backdrop to fit into.
The film's other major flaw, again like 8.5 is
It's self-indulgence and downright arrogance.
The parallels to Fosse's own life are so thinly
disguised they*cannot be ignored,especially
considering that Fosse co-wrote the film. Gideon is a successful Broadway and Hollywood
director (Just like Fosse) who, being a compulsive workaholic, attempts to edit a film
about a nightclub comedian (just like Leu
nyjand direct a Broadway show al the same
time The pressure finally gels to Gideon and
he has two heart attacks (just like Posse), He
has an ex-wife (Leland Palmer) who's a lol like
losses ex-wlfe Gwen Verdon, and an old
girlfriend played by Ann Reinking who's a lot
like Fosse's old girlfriend Ann Reinking. Not
in.ilk/ the relationship between life and art are
hardly worth mentioning, but the problem
here is Ihal Fosse is making a film aboul a man
who's a bastard and knows It (and doesn't
care), but Is so brilliantly talented that
everyone loves him anyway. The fact that Gideon and Fosse's lives are so close (they even
look alike), and ihe press releases statements
thai Fosse "reaches deep within himself, his
own life, his silt cesses and failuies in his work
and his relationships" make clear that Fosse is
making a film very much about himself, and
the implications are not attractive. But, once
again the ambiguity arises because the man is
incredibly talented, and none of ills films
demonstrate It more than this one. With only
three cinematic credits (Sweet
Cabaret, and Lenny) Fosse shows extraordinary control of the medium. The Images just

There was a nice guitar run here by Roddy,

Sulphur, says the researcher, is

If ihc polluted air is cleaned up,

West German Chancellor Helmut Schmidt

and to further complicate the situation,
Schmidt has tentative plans (dating from
1979) for a late February summit meeting
with East German leader Erich Hcuecker thai

Sometimes a leam plays poorly,

The less .painful lesson for the
spikers came against Vassal' ai
University Gym on Saturday. Facing an inspired but mediocre Vassal'
team, tlie Danes performed just
well enough to w i n , posting a 15-13,
15-7, 16-14 victory. Hut against a
powerful West Point club, ihc

Against Wesl Point, the Danes

what Earl called " o n e o f the most
beautiful blocks I've ever seen."
The play led lo three straight
Albany points, and a one point
lead. Bui the Danes' serving problems cancelled out the bid, as Wesl
Point took the next three points and
the game.
Earl mentioned Don Klinski, who
started his first game in the middle
for Albany, as giving a solid performance. "West Point is a tough
place to get your firsl start i n , and
Don did an excellent j o b , " Pari
"West Point was able lo hit over

The spikers next face New Pallz

relatively weak New Paltz team.
"They arc jn a rebuilding cycle, but

It's surprising thai no weight men

Albany indoor track coach Boh
Mousey attributes their poor performances to a lack of proper training facilities. Munsey said, " T h e y

members went out for the team this
season, it hurt us tiiat ue didn't
have these necessary men to carry

This meet marked one of the
finest efforts shown by an Albany
runner this season. The heroics
were performed by junior Tony
