Matt Mann Pool will be open-
ing its doors a little early this
year to the action and excite-
ment of water sports. But it
isn't because of swimming.
Michigan will host the Mid-
west Collegiate Water Polo
Tournament today and tomor-
row, with the winner getting an
invitation to play in the NCAA
Championships at Long Beach
Perhaps one of the most rug-
ged of all sports, water p o 1o
combines "the finesse of bas-
ketball. the ruggedness of foot-
ball, the demanding condition-
ing of swimming and track, and
the theatrics of wrestling."
The six top teams in the Mid-
west-Indiana, Loyola, Illinois-
Chicago Circle, Ohio State,
Michigan State, and Michigan
will vie for the championship.
The Wolverines meet Illinois at
6 p.m. before tackling Loyola in
a crucial game at 9 p.m.
,oyola and Indiana, who have
split two games this year, rate
as co-favorites in the tourney.
Last year the Hoosiers sunk the
nal Day for ordering
Ramblers from Chicago 13-8 to
take the first Midwest Water
Polo Championship while Mich-
igan finished in fourth place.
Loyola will be led by an AAU
All-American while two Olym-
pic swimmers - Charlie Hick-
cox and Gary Hall - will play
Michigan Swimming Coach
Gus Stager is cautious in rat-
ing of his team's chances. "I'll
be happy if we get third place.
We should be able to take Mich-
igan State and Illinois, but af-
ter that it will be tough. I know
our players would really like to
beat Ohio State, but we have
lost to them this year.-
Stager has enlisted the ser-
vices of senior John Pheney, an
AAU water polo veteran, to
coach the Michigan squad, and
he seems a bit more optimistic.
"We have a good chance to beat
Loyola this weekend. We only
lost to them by one point when
we went to Chicago last week,
and I think we scared them a
little when they saw us destroy
Pheney's optimism is based on
the fact that the 11-10 loss was
due to a penalty shot in the last
two minutes of play. The game
was quite a change from 25-9.
and 18-9 plasterings that the
Wolverines got from the Ram-
blers earlier in the season. Nev-
cap and gowns will be Nov. 21

MICHIGAN'S GREG ZANN throws himself high out of the water
to block a shot against Loyola in a game earlier this season.
Wolverine chances for a tournament victory this weekend depend
upon their match at 9 tonight against the Ramblers at Matt
ertheless. water polo is a rec-
ognized varsity sport at Loyola,
and a few of.the Ramblers have
played together for as long as
Freshman Steve McCarthy.
who is high scorer with 31 goals,
thinks the team has improved in
the course of the year simply
because of "experience." He ex-
plained, "We're in a lot better
condition now and know how to
swim for open water. Before we
used to get in each other's way
on offense in front of the op-
McCarthy credits much of the
Michigan's defensive strength to
the goalie, Jim Pidgon. "He's
really come a 1 o n g way, and
might be the best goalie of all
the team's here this weekend.''
Bob Zann and Gary Kinkead
also help to stiffen the Wolver-
ine defense, while Rory Moore
and Greg Zann have added to
scoring punch this season with
30 and 26 goals respectively.
Greg Zann based the teams
hopes on the recent perform-
ance at Loyola, stating "Al-
though we were down at half
8-2, we knew we could b e a t
them. In t h e fourth quarter.
Michigan was ahead 10-9, and
if it wasn't for a penalty shot in
the 1 a s t two minutes, we
wouldn't have lost."
The tournament starts at 2
p.m. this afternoon w it h six
matches scheduled through the
day. Semi-finals will be held to-
morrow morning and the cham-
pionship game will be at 3:00 in
