4b SPORTS The Times Herald Port Huron. Mich. Saturday, April 1, 1989 Duke's Krcyzewski learns lesson: don't lose . By MIKE LOPRESTI Gannett News Service SEATTLE At 42, he is still a young turk, only young turks don't usually ; move quite this fast ; No, Mike Krzyzewski is wise beyond his tender years, beyond the surname that stretches past the 3-point line. Someone asked Friday what the coach had learned not to do in the Final Four after two previous trips in the past three years. C Two hundred reporters leaned forward b for the answer. t "Lose," he said. Duke is knocking on the door again, and who knows what is on the other side I- for Krzyzewski? Nearly every major ) coaching job that opens, he could prob-'. ably have. All he need do is ask. Nearly t all would say yes, at least once they ' found out how to pronounce his name. What we'll see in the Kingdome Sat- urday may or may not be the best coach of the best team but is probably the J hottest coach with the brightest future, f Krzyzewski is, as they say in recruiting, the total package. ; He is bright, articulate, graduates all ; of his players, every last forward and guard. The Duke media guide will tell I you that the starting lineup is composed of three political science majors, one economics major and one history major, and one can only imagine the look on a t smitten mother's face when she reads that, then peers over the book into the sweet smile of Coach K. At that point, you figure, Mom is in the bag. v He is the family man who takes his ? wife on most trips and welcomes wives ; of his assistants to drop by the office I any old time if they need to see their husbands. The tape on Clemson will wait , He says his piece with a slightly thin nasal voice, but with powerful impact because of the sincerity of his words. When he was an Army man back at West Point, one of his men came by one day to ask Coach K's advice on marriage. Coach K was a newlywed. Learning basketball as the right hand of Bob Knight, man-to-man defense became a religion. But Duke will play a zone. "As you walk out of here, my book on zone is for sale," he joked Friday. "If a team doesn't do a real good job against it, we may play it five or six minutes. But that's not what's going to beat Seton Hall." Krzyzewski was seen Friday as saying it was good that his players be exposed to the Final Four hype to get them ready for the game, that he was glad to be at a press conference. No Knight clone, this man, but one who took the knowledge and fashioned it for his own use and now is out of the master's shadow, or should be. When someone wondered of the past Final Four experience would help, he shrugged, "If you use it the right way, it is an advantage. If you don't use it the right way, it isn't. That's a hell of an answer isn't it? I'm sorry, I didn't mean to be funny. Maybe I wasn't funny." He sat there Friday a relaxed and eager man, overjoyed with what his team has done but anxious that it take the final step. "What you have to do in the Final Four is exactly what you did in preparation to get here," he said. "This team is not a team you can Senators bet on U-M game WASHINGTON (AP) Sen. Paul Simon of Illinois is famed for his bow ties, but he says he's a bow-tie purist: He never wears clip-ons. His aversion to fake ties, not to mention his pride in the "Land of Lincoln," may take a beating if Michigan wins Saturday's "Final Four" NCAA basketball matchup with Illinois. Simon and Sen. Carl Levin of Michigan have a bet If Michigan wins, Simon will wear a clip-on bow tie dotted with the Wolverine's "M" motif. If Illinois wins, Levin will wear an Illini straight tie. The senators have also are wagering two cases of Michigan Vemor's ginger ale against two cases of Illinois-bottled Orange Crush, a trademark that is also the nickname of the Illini student cheering section. Said Levin: "Senator Simon will make history in wearing a Michigan clip-on bow tie after the 'orange crush' is made into 'blue' slush Saturday night." make 20 points to. You make five points to them. My team in '86, you made 40 points to them. You got to be careful not to overcoach this team. Don't do any crazy things, let them be themselves more. "I want to play really well here. I feel very comfortable being here. I really wanted to play Georgetown (in the regional) because I felt, to go the Final Four and earn it, we needed to play Georgetown. If we had gotten beat, I'd be at the beach now. But we won, so we've earned it. I feel like now, let's be Duke, let's play our best." It is ironic who now is in his way. When Krzyzewski was a struggling young coach at Army, P.J. Carlesimo was a struggling young coach at Wagner. The two would occasionally join other New York area coaches for press luncheons at Mama Leone's in midtown Manhattan. Only nobody would come to listen to them, but rather to titans such as St. John's Lou Carnesecca, whom Krzyzewski would watch with unabashed admiration as Louie downed his pasta. But they came by the hundreds to listen to the two Friday. "What drew us together, we were the only two people who could pronounce and spell each other's names. It grew into a friendship," Carlesimo said. "Each coach would get up and talk about our teams. Our talks would be very short. It's amazing what's hap-pend," Krzyzewski said. "I think we appreciate each other because of our background." At that Krzyzewski said he'd like to say more, but his team was waiting, the team that could get the championship the one thing this young man in a hurry has not yet caught up with.

Cook figures to open this ' season at Lakeland, a Class A team in ; the Florida State League. "For where I'm at (progress-wise), this is where I should be," Cook said. "It's a great league. If I do well here, I'd have a good shot at moving up next year. "I'm definitely going to work to get to London (Ontario) sometime this year, but if I stay here all year, it's no disappointment. I'm the youngest starter on the team." TOM WILSON A year ago, Wilson was itching to get outside to practice with the rest of his Port Huron High baseball team. Weather is no problem now that he is in his first professional camp. Tom Wilson Wilson admitted it took awhile to get used to being on his own, far from at the Mets' camp in Port St. Lucie. "It was different at first," said Wilson, a right-hander. "It's more of a job now than (just) playing baseball. It makes you grow up a little faster." Wilson will stay in Florida until early June as young prospects get more individual attention once the major league camp breaks next week. He has been brought along slowly, pitching three innings a couple of times a week in inter-squad games or against community colleges. "I've been pitching pretty well," Wilson said. "I've pitched three times with no runs. I don't throw that hard compared to a lot of guys here, but I've been consistent." Wilson has been used to finish games. He asked Mets' minor league coach Randy Niemann if that had any significance. 1 "He told me he needed somebody he knows can throw strikes," Wilson said. "That gave me a confidence boost." Wilson said the minor league complex is right next to the Mets' big-league park, so the sight of a Dwight Gooden or Darryl Strawberry isn't unsual. "I think they have it set up that way on purpose," Wilson said. "You think maybe you'll be there some day. It makes you work harder." Wilson thinks be assigned to either Kingsport, Tenn., or Pittsfield, Mass., in June. Both are Class A teams. NATION lush: plami for oimtas was doomed! WASHINGTON (AP) - President Bush acknowledged Friday that when he submitted his Contra aid proposal last week he knew he had "not a snowball's chance in hell" of getting renewed military assistance for the Nicaraguan rebels. That's why Bush proposed a $40 million non-lethal package to keep the Contras alive until the Nicaraguan elections at the beginning of next year. Bush said that he believes the Reagan administration's policy of military sup port for the rebels "brought the Sandinistas to the table" to talk about making democratic reforms. Bush denied that his focus on diplomacy implies that Reagan's policy was a failure. Bush's assessment of chances for congressional approval of military aid reflects the general view among lawmakers and people throughout the administration. But it was the first time he has indicated that the dim prospects influenced his decision to pursue a diplomatic solution. "Had there been no (military) pressure, the Sandinistas would have gone about their merry revolutionary ways" without implementing democratic reforms, Bush told a luncheon for regional media representatives. He said the package he submitted has strong conservative support. The administration has said the 11,000-member Contra army, camped along the Honduran border, should be kept intact until the Sandinistas prove they will hold free elections and im plement other political and press freedoms. Bush spoke also of his intentions toward the U.S.-backed government of Nicaragua's neighbor, El Salvador. A candidate of the rightist ARENA party, Alfredo Cristiani, has just won the presidential election there, sparking concerns about a possible upsurge in right-wing human rights violations. "We will treat the Salvadoran winner on his word, that he wants to continue the democracy,..." Bush said. $5 million approved for AIDS treatment State programs extended WASHINGTON (AP) The Bush administration on Friday granted a request from key senators to transfer $5 million in federal AIDS funds to a program that provides the drug AZT to patients who cannot afford the costly treatment. The action by the Department of Health and Human Services came hours before the program expired and will allow new funds to be sent to states to carry the programs for six months. HHS Secretary Louis Sullivan, in announcing the action, said he agreed with "the compassionate purpose" of the transfer. But he said "a series of 'one-time' appropriations is not the most desirable way to address the issue of support for purchase" of AIDS drugs because the funds are being diverted from AIDS research, prevention and education. Nearly 7,000 of the estimated 30,000 AIDS victims using AZT are receiving the drug under the program, created by Congress in 1987 and extended for six months last September. The drug, which has been shown to extend the lives of many AIDS patients, costs about $8,000 a year when taken at full dosage. It is currently the only drug approved by the government to treat acquired Immune deficiency syndrome.

Fund-raising group of dancing gay men celebrates 10th anniversary SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Ten years of outrageous antics by a charity group of gay men in fishnet stockings and miniskirted nuns' habits have made the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence the quintessential kooky stereotype of liberal San Francisco. More than a few of the city's politicians, gay activists and religious leaders wish the "sisters" had never ventured from their closets. But the group, which is marking its 10th birthday this weekend, has built a record of service along with its street theater. The sisters have raised tens of thousands of dollars for local philanthropic organizations through such things as greeting cards. They organized the city's first fund-raiser to fight what was then the unnamed disease that became AIDS, and pioneered a safe-sex campaign with a pamphlet that became standard in the field. Regardless of how you view them, few can forget the group's performances parodying conservative beliefs, dancing chorus-line style and singing songs lampooning the likes of the pope and the Rev. Jerry Falwell. Bill Mitchell, a spokesman for the San Francisco Roman Catholic Archdiocese, said the sisters do the gay and lesbian community "no particular service by ridiculing what some people hold sacred," especially when the homosexual community aspires to unite with a sense of dignity. announcements blase directory adult fester car pedal notices cards ( thank Instructions happy Unas companion Backers monuments legale personals memorlams lost & found Monuments JONES LOST - Damaged Honda '87 MONUMENTS 5e2,JSpre1 M'SSi"? from 3549 Stone St 982-2783 Rabidue Rd area, $50 rew- ard, 325-1645 In MemoriamS LOST - Yellow female dog, an incmnim LabHusky mix, last seen March 20 on Electric Ave., near Mercy Hospi- JONES- tal, 987-4168. 2 .

Kristen realized more in her 16 years, than many of us could realize in 100 years of life. She saw that we must care for each other as God cares for us all; completely, without restraint. It took the death of our loving, caring, uncomplaining daughter for us to realize how much God truly loves us, by feeling the pain that God felt when He gave His son, in death for us to have eternal life. Let His light shine in you as she did. That would be the best thing that her life could bring. Life was her thing - let it be yours. There is joy and peace in knowing that Kristen's Spirit lives on in us. She is with us, as God's special cheerleader angel, to help us live our lives to the best and fullest that we can. Remember her, talk to her, think of her, she will cheer for you, share your joys, share your sorrows, and help as a friend in Spirit any way she can, as she would have in life. Jesus rose from the grip of death and so does our Kristen's Spirit. Love each other, care for each other, share each other, do your best at all that you do, as she did. She made this world a better place to live, let's all do the same in her memory. To those who have given their support, we are doing our best to get a personal thank you to each of you, but the out-pouring of love has been so great that if we somehow missed you, please forgive us.
