College, High School Basketball c 11 Gaithers 29 spark FDU -win By Don Markus Staff Writer EAST RUTHERFORD - Marcus Gaither recently became Fairleigh Dickinson's all-time leading scorer, but the achievement was overshadowed by the confusion the 6-foot-S, 200-pound guard was going through. Gaither was perplexed enough by new ccach Tom Green's system. A shift to point guard, because of an injury to teammate Freddie Collins, made things even more unsettling for the senior from Far Rockaway, N.Y. "When Freddie came back, I didn't know when to pass and when to shoot," Gaither said last night after scoring 29 points and leading FDU 81, Hofstra 69 FDU to a fairly easy 81-69 victory over Hofstra in the first game of a college basketball double-header at Byrne Arena. Gaither, who tied an arena record with 13 field goals (on 19 attempts), broke Ken Webb's FDU career scoring record of 1,477 points last Saturday against Maine and then went over the 1,500-point mark Monday against Brooklyn. "It the new system has been an adjustment for everybody,'' Gaither said. "But I think the adjustment is making us a better team. I feel I could play any position and be comfortable. The most important thing is that it works." Gaither was most comfortable working the baselines against 5-11 Doug Mills, posting the 165-pound Hofstra guard inside for layups and short, turnaround jump shots. "He Gaither was the key," said Hofstra coach Dick Berg. "The last two years both Hofstra victories we had Eric Harvey to play Gaither inside. But we had no one to stop him tonight He's one of the best players in the Metropolitan area." Gaither scored 17 points in the first half, when the Knights jumped to a 35-25 lead. FDU (6-4) widened its lead to 47-33 as Gaither posted Mills for a short bank shot Gaither then fed senior forward Greg Foster for an easy layup. Hofstra (4-4) trailed byas many as 20 points, 69-49, before cutting the deficit in the closing minutes. Mills led the Flying Dutchmen with 19 points. Junior forward Larry Hampton of FDU matched that with 19. "I think this is his Gaither's best basketball game so far this season," said Green, alluding to the fact that Gaither entered the game with a 13.8 average, nearly 10 points below last year. "He's done an incredible job, not just on offense. It has been something of a small project to have him think about the other parts of his game. He's played well on defense, gone to the boards, passed off. He's a complete player." NOTES The game was played on the old Nassau Coliseum basketball floor, which was shipped in from Long Island and will be used for at least a week because the Byrne Arena floor is warped and under repair. It seems moisture got into the Byrne Arena floor during storage... Foster had 13 points and nine rebounds for FDU... The Knights play at Iona tomorrow night. School schedule ?!

Rellford and his teammates, who shot 17-for-30 from the field in the first half, figured wrong. Perry, junior forward Chris Remley (11 points), and Battle (20 points, five assists, five steals, and five rebounds) were the Scarlet Knights' bright spots. "We were not aggressive on defense and we were passive on offense," said Young, who spent much of the evening gnawing at his towel and yelling at his team. "Until they buried us, we were never in the game. Then we forgot who we were playing and where we were and just played." The closest Rutgers came in the second half was to within 53-31, following a pair of steals and baskets by Battle. Michigan coach Bill Frieder went deep into his bench and it still didn't matter. "I don't know how good they are but we are not a Top 20 team," said Young. Whether the Wolverines are worthy of their Top 20 ranking remains to be seen. Michigan beat nationally ranked Georgia Dec. 5 at the Omni in Atlanta, but really hasn't played anyone else close to national caliber. Michigan has played two games without All-Big 10 guard Eric Turner, who is suffering from back spasms. Turner, a 6-3 junior, was needed for just 10 minutes last night The Wolverines also remember last year, when they started 9-1 and finished the season a disappointing 15-13. "It takes time for a team like ours," said Rockymore. "We have so much talent that it'll take awhile to jell together." That is not Tom Young's problem. Anybody got a towel? WASHINGTON TOWNSHIP -Fair Lawn rebounded from its one-point loss to Kennedy the day before to wallop Westwood, 51-29, yesterday in girls basketball for its third win in four starts. The Cutters used fullcourt pressure to jump to a 38-10 halftime Girls basketball lead. Senior guard Patty McGar led the victors with 14 points. "Tonight our defense did the job and that meant easy shots," said Fair Lawn coach Rich Szura. PATERSON CATHOLIC 41, NEUMANN PREP 39 Paterson Catholic outpressured Neumann Prep in posting its two-point win. Leading 39-37 with 36 seconds left, the Cougars could have sat back in a zone to deny an inside shot But coach Ruth Memoli ordered a tight man-to-man defense. The strategy paid off when Linda Thompson stole an errant Wildcat pass and drove for the deciding layup to give the Cougars their first victory.

"She's a smart player," Memoli said of Thompson. "Even if we're in a zone, she'll take that chance. She reacted well to the pass." Thompson led all scorers with 21 points, while Hendricks keyed the Wildcat attack with 12. PEQUANNOCK 50, MONTVILLE 32 Pequannock ran up a 19-0 first-quarter lead in the first period in coasting past Montville for its third victory without a loss. The victors opened with a 2-2-1 zone press that was effective at both ends of the court Pequannock's Janice Helmacy and Jenn McElwreath pressed for steals and easy baskets in the Mustangs' backcourt and when Montville broke the pressure, Panther forwards Nancy Phillips and Missy Snyder were there to deny easy shots. Robin Kaiser led Montville with 20 points (16 in the fourth quarter), while Phillips netted 14. Scores BOYS BASKETBALL Englewood 14 Essen Cam. 43 Hoboken 09 Montville 41 N.
