7th RANKED LOUISVILLE TO TEST BLUE

agers
By GARY KICINSKI
You've no doubt heard of the famed
Sultan of Swat, the renowned Duke of
Earle, and the storied Prince of Wales.
Enter now ye Doctors of Dunk, a.k.a.
he Louisville Cardinals, to challenge
the Michigan Wolverines in the cagers'
first road game of the year.
THE SEVENTH-RANKED Car-
'nals, who sport what some call the
ation's finest collection of slam dunk
rtists, host the sixth-ranked
olverines tonight before what is ex-
pcted to be a frenzied Freedom Hall
crowd of 16,000 (televised on Channel 50
at8 p.m.).
The 2-0 Wolverines are fresh off a
conquest of highly regarded Alabama
hand hope to avenge last year's 88-85
Crisler Arena loss to the Cardinals, who
are currently 3-1-.
The Louisville quintet of a year ago is
now minus the services of guard Rick
Wilson and center Ricky Gallon, both of
whom have graduated. But the young
Cards are blessed with the presence of
'three returning starters and a fine
freshman class.
"LOUISVILLE HAS as fine a person-
nel as anyone in the United States of
America," praised .Michigan coach
Johnny Orr. "We'll have to play better
than at any time we've ever played and
longer than we've ever played."
Leading the Cardinal dunk squad is 6-
4 All-American guard Darrell Griffith,
the self-proclaimed Chief Surgeon of
the Doctors of Dunk. Griffith's 16.3
scoring average is impressive enough,

battle'Doctors of Dunk'

but he is more widely known for his out-
standing jumping ability and for his
360-degree slam dunks.
Griffith led the Cards in dunks last
year with 42 and possesses a 48-inch
vertical leap. "That's unbelievable,"
said Orr.
"I DON'T THINK there is any
question Darrellis one of the top players

assistant coach Bill Frieder. "We
might try a 1-3-1 zone on them, but if it
doesn't work, we'll just get out of it."
IN ADDITION to Griffith, the
Wolverines will have to deal with Car-
dinal forwards Bobby Turner and
Larry Williams, both returning letter-
winners, and 6-8 freshman center
Scooter McCray.

couldn't believe they had us up there,"
he said. "We have the potential to be a
good club, but we're still a long way
away."
As for defensing Michigan, Crum
says it'll be a hard-nosed man-to-man..
"I haven't seen them (Michigan) this
year, but I know from playing them last
year what they do. With Hubbard back,
they'll be tough. They've always been a
running, high-scoring team. We like to
do that too, but I doubt if we can keep up
with them. We'll have to try to slow
them down."~
Orr says the game will be a good test
for the club. Frieder says, "They're
truly one of the top five teams in the
country. They're explosive. But I
respect the Big Ten so much that I-
wouldn't saycthey'll be the toughest
team we'll face."

Men's tennis tandem
drops tourney finale'
By JOHN LIBBE
Despite a bout of the 24-hour flu,, the Wolverine tennis doubles tandem
of Jeff Etterbeek and Matt Horwitch battled their way to the finals of the
National Indoor Collegiate Doubles Tournament before bowing to an out-
standing Trinity pair.
Etterbeek and Horwitch were defeated in the finals by Erick Iskersky
and Ben McKown 7-6, 6-2.
"Thirty-two teams qualified for this tournament," said Blue tennis
coach Biran Eisner. "Most of the top teams from around the nation com-
peted. Basically, there were three teams from each district of the country."
Michigan was represented by two of the three teams from their district,
as Jud Shaufler and Michael Leach also qualified. The two teams, however,
had to fight sickness along with the other doubles teams.
"All four (of the players) came down with the flit. They (Leach and
Shaufler) played an excellent Pan-American team. They won the first set,
but they became so weak they couldn't carry on," said Eisner.
Shaufler and Jack Neinken will be representing the Wolverine squad in
the Milwaukee Tennis Classic in January.

in the nation. He is a much better guard
this year because he has improved his
shooting, ball-handling and overall
team play," said Louisville coach Den-
ny Crum.
The task of covering the Louisville
leaper falls upon - who else -
Michigan defensive specialist Tom
Staton.
Staton, who last year automatically
drew the toughest player on the other
team, is still hampered by the same
bronchitis which limited his playing
time against Central Michigan and
Alabama. When Staton needs rest
tonight, Michigan may just have to
change its defensive tactics.
"We'll have to contain Griffith," said

McCray was one of the top centers to
come out of high school last year,
averaging 10.6 ppg. and 14 rebounds on
his way to New York Player of the Year
honors. Crum says he's not very
physical, but he is leading the club in
both rebounds and assists. Will he have
trouble handling Phil Hubbard?
"Doesn't everyone?" asked Crum.
Williams, the lone senior on the club,
has averaged 10.7 ppg. and 7.8 reboun-
ds. Turner, a small forward at only 6-4,
has credentials of 11.6 ppg. and 4.5
rebounds.
BUT TURNER and Williams, as well
as the entire team, have been disap-
pointing so far in Crum's estimation. "I
don't think we've played very well yet.
We're 3-1 but we haven't beat anyone
good yet," Crum said. The Cards lost to
N.C. State in the finals of the Seawolf
Classic, 72-66.
Crum, in fact, questions those who
have his club ranked so highly. "I

Women face Cards;
look for first win

By ELISA FRYE
The women's basketball team is
going on a hunting trip today - down to
Louisville to try and find an offense.
The offense proved to be a repeatedly
elusive creature in last Saturday's
season opener with the University of
Detroit, which Michigan lost 76-69.
Coach Gloria Soluk hopes the cagers
will be able to get a bead on it in today's
game, a doubleheader with the men.
"We've made some Changes," said
Soluk. "We're making some adjust-
ments in offense. We're trying to work
)n a 'motion offense' which is difficult
for the kids to learn, but at least they'll
have an offense to fall back on."
Soluk will be going with a double-post
offense which she says she may use for
the rest of the year. Starting for the
Wolverines will be just, one guard,
junior guard Terry 9chevers, fresh-
woman forward Katie McNamara,
sophomore forward Abby Currier,
sophomore center Yvette Harris and,
AP Basketball Poll
Duke's Blue Devils can now brag
about two things: their number one
ranking in The Associated Press
basketball poll and the boasting rights
in North Carolina, due to their triumph
in the Big Four Tournament.
UCLA gathered in the seven first
place votes Duke didn't receive en
route to their second rating. Notre
Dame, the third-ranked team, will play
the Uclans on Saturday.

freshwoman center Penny Neer.
"We want to give different kids a
chance to start," said Soluk of the
changes she made in the starting
lineup. "We're going to try different
combinations."r
Soluk also said she will be going to the
bench more than she did in Saturday's
game and hopes to use freshwomen
forwards Kris Hansen and Jill Smit,
who did not play at all against Detroit.
The Wolverines squeaked by
Louisville in the controversial "run-
ning-clock" game here last year, 71-68.
Soluk is not certain about Louisville's
abilities this year, however. "They like
to zone up on you," she said.
"They're usually tough," added
Soluk, but said she knew nothing about
Louisville's opponents this season and
could not really analyze their talent.
The cagers return home for a game
this Saturday against Indiana State,
also a doubleheader with the men. The
game startsat 1 p.m. in Crisler Arena.
