-Former Michigan All-American
Ricky Green joins the Detroit Pistons
after being acquired from Golden State
late Monday evening.
Green, who was Golden State's first
round selection insthe 1977 college draft
comes to the Pistons in exchange for an
undisclosed draft choice. He flew into
Detroit yesterday in time to practice
with the team.
Coach Dick Vitale was enthusiastic
about Green's presence on the roster,
noting that "Ricky has great speed and
leaping ability and we expect him to
give us a few good minutes running the
fast break." Green will not be starting
for the Pistons however, as coach
Vitale stated that "Kevin Porter, Chris
Ford, and John Long are my first three
Vitale said that he had spoken with
Green before the Pistons obtained him
and that "Ricky knows his role and
knows he has to prove himself. Golden
State gave up on him after they drafted
Ray Townsend and received John
Lucas in compensation for Ricky Barry
and we think that perhaps they were a
little premature."
The 5r10"Green started for Golden
State as a rookie last year, but was ben-
ched in the middle of the season as his

shortcomings as a pro ballplayer
became evident around the league.

Women CC Club develops talent

It's one thing to go out and leisurely
'og three or four miles a couple of days
week, but it's another thing to run ten
miles every day, pushing for five- and
six-minute miles.
The average jogger may find this
routine unusually grueling, but for the
ten members of the Michigan women's
cross country club, this routine
represents their ultimate goal.
In its first year at Michigan, the club
is led by Red Simmons. Known as the
father of women's track and field in
Michigan, Simmons also coaches the
;women's track and field team.
A DEDICATED group of runners
make up the club, which receives no
funds from the University. "All expen-
ses for the club either I'm footing or the
girls are footing," said Coach Sim-
"The University has not approved a
cross country team for women," Coach
Simmons continued. "Whether they
will in the future, I don't know."
Because women's cross country is not
a varsity sanctioned sport at Michigan,
it has been difficult to recruit long
distance runners. "It's my hope to get a
team here so we can attract some
nationally-ranked girls," said Coach
"We really only have one good
distance runner now. My main objec-
tive is to use this as a conditioning
program for indoor track this winter,"
explained Coach Simmons.
ALL BUT ONE of the club's members
are freshmen and should provide some
stiff competition for the women on last
year's track team. Coach Simmons'
ultimate aim is to get a couple of good
one- or two-milers for the indoor
Although running might not seem like

a sport which requires a great amount
of skill, competitive long distance run-
ners are not made overnight. "If they
want to make the big time they are
going to have to train twice a day six, or
better yet, seven days a week," said
Coach Simmons.
"Physiologically, it takes a girl three
years of consistent running to develop
the capillaries in her legs that carry
blood and oxygen which, in turn,
reduces fatigue," explained Coach
Simmons. As the runner develops the
capillaries, he or she uses oxygen more
efficiently and doesn't have'to work as
hard to run long distances.
Successful competitive running may
also be determined by physique.
Generally a cross country runner has a
slender build. "Even a different kind of
mental attitude is required of a distan-
ce runner," said Coach Simmons.
TREMENDOUS perseverance is
needed by a distance runner, whose
reward comes in competing against,
and placing ahead of, other runners.
The club provides the women harriers
with a chance to enter competitive

meets at other schools with cross coun-
try teams.
This gives the women a chance to see
how they fare against other runners.
But because of the "club" standing, the
harriers do not receive awards or
recognition for their performance.
Despite the disadvantages the club
has to face, it does have a few plisses.
"It's good because it doesn't count
towards my eligibility," said runner
Marianne Dickerson. "I'll still be able
to run competitively for four more
years." Dickerson has been training
occasionally with the men's team as
well as preparing with the women for
the Big Ten championships in two
