FIRST TIME IN MICHIGAN HIS TOR Y

Clubbers cruise west to regionals

By BOB EMORY
Unlike Cinderella, the women's field
hockey team did get an invitation to the
big event, but it's a Cinderella role
they'll be playing anyway in the 1978
MAIAW Regional Championship in
LaCrosse, Wisconsin.
It will be the first time in their six-
year varsity history that the
Wolverines will participate in the
regional tournament, having been
awarded an at-large bid by the tour-
nament committee. Still, it took a freak
occurrence for Michigan to land its in-
vitation.
WOMEN'S FIELD hockey in the
United States is divided into eight
regions, with anywhere from six to
eight states in each region. Along with
Michigan,fiveaother states-West
Virginia, Indiana, Ohio, Illinois and
Wisconsin-compose the Midwest
Region. There are eight teams from
Pistons
deposit
Bucks
By JAMIE TURNER
Special to The Daly
PONTIAC - Rickey Green and Bob
Lanier keyed a fourth-quarter surge
that gave Detroit a 117-106 win over the
Milwaukee Bucks at the Silverdome
last night.
Stumbling out of the blocks, the
Pistons trailed 15-2 after seven minutes
had elapsed in the first quarter, but
clawed back to trail by only five at the
end of the period. By the end of the third
period, the Pistons were within one, 89-
88.
THAT'S WHEN Lanier and Green
took over. The 6-11 Piston captain
.scored 16 of his game-high 35 points in
the last period. Green set up many of
those points with a sharp-passing and
penetrating game.
Green finished with 17 points, his high
production mark with Detroit. "I'm
getting more comfortable with the
team," the former Michigan All-
American said. "And I think they're
getting more comfortable with me."
The game was marred by the high
amount of fouls - 57 - called by head
referee Jack Madden. Early in the
game, when the Pistons were
struggling, both Lanier and Vitale were
nailed with technicals protesting the
calls.
"All I said was, 'Three seconds,' or
something like that, and they called a
'T'," raged Vitale. "You can't utter a
word. I tell you one thing ... Al
MCGuire would never last a week in the
NBA!"

A MASTER OF SCIENCE
PROGRAM designed for persons
wanting to participate in
formulating policies for the

each region that play in the tour-
nament.
The state champion from each state
automatically. qualifies, as does the
school which hosts the tournament, and
then there is one at-large bid given.
This is where the Wolverines fit in.
Since the tournament is in LaCrosse
this year, the host school, Wisconsin-
LaCrosse, will participate. But it just so
happens that Wisconsin-LaCrosse is
also state champion of Wisconsin,
leaving room for one more at-large bid
that the Wolverines were awarded.
"I'M REALLY surprised that we
received one of the bids," said head
coach Phyllis Ocker, "considering that
our record (11-6) wasn't that great."
It shouldn't come as that much of a
surprise though. Michigan beat some
very fine teams this year on its way to
completing its most successful season
in Wolverine field hockey history.
For the first time in four seasons, the
Wolverines defeated Central Michigan,
last year's state and regional cham-
pion. In fact, this year marked the first
time that Michigan even scored a goal
against the Chippewas. They also beat
Minnesota, a school with a long-
standing tradition of excellent field
hockey.
But the biggest win of the year was a

2-1 semi-upset of Michigan State in a
regular season contest at Ferry Field.
The Spartans had suffered only one loss
coming into that game against eight
victories and were considered the num-
ber one team in the state, a title they
eventually claimed by defeating
Michigan in the state finals, 3-1.
"THAT WAS probably the best game
we played all year," said Ocker. "The
girls were really up for that one and it
showed."
Now, what about the team's chances
in the regionals? "We'll be underdogs,"

says Ocker, "but I think we have a good
shot at winning if the girls play the way
they're capable of playing. MSU is
seeded number one and we know we
can beat them-plus our first opponent,
Southern Illinois, was beaten by State
earlier in the year."
Whatever Michigan's achievement in
the tournament, it has been a very suc-
cessful season for the Wolverines. But
perhaps the most promising thing for
Michigan is the fact that they'll lose
only one player off this year's Cin-
derella team.

and a few on the radical
fringe will even add egg.
While these manipulations

can't be prohibited (this is, after all, a free country), they are
frowned upon. Please be advised that purity is a virtue, and the
natural refreshment of Busch is best uncompromised.
Finally, there's the issue of containers. Good taste dictates a
glass be used. But bad planning sometimes prevents that. If you
find yourself forced to drink from the can, you should minimize
this breach of etiquette. Be formal. Simply let your little finger
stick out stiffly (see Fig. 4). Happy Mountaineering!
