After some smooth sailing during its
two victories last week, the Michigan
basketball team encountered rough
seas Wednesday as it lost a 67-64 hear-
tbreaker to Toledo.
Tonight at 8:05 (9:05 EST) the waters
become even more turbulent as Coach
Johnny Orr's Wolverines travel to
Milwaukee to battle 18th-ranked
Marquette (2-0). The game will be
shown on WKBD-TV (Channel 50).
Michigan and Marquette haven't
faced each other since 1977, when the
Blue cagers erased an 11-point deficit
with two minutes remaining to nip the
Warriors, 69-68, at Crisler Arena.
Michigan holds a 9-5 series edge, the
two teams having split their last four
FOR THE past decade, Marquette
basketball has been synonymous with
excellence. Coached by the flamboyant
Al McGuire and, since 1977, by his
assistant Hank Raymonds, the.
Warriors have, been ranked in the Top
Ten eight times, a feat surpassed only
by UCLA.
Marquette's success reached a peak
in 1977 when it captured the national
championship, a fitting last hurrah for
the brilliantMcGuire.
Since the New Yorker's tearful

leers glide, 10-2

farewell, the Warriors haven't come
upon any more NCAA titles. However,
they remain a member of basketball's
elite, as evidenced by last year's 22-7
record and number 10 ranking.
Over the past couple years Raymon-
ds has lost through graduation the likes
of Butch Lee, Jerome Whitehead, Bo
Ellis and, most recently, Bernard
Toone (18.7 points per game in 1978-79),
now a rookie on the Philadelphia 76ers.
DESPITE THE departure of such
standouts, Marquette doesn't suffer
from a dearth of talent. Senior Sam
Worthen, a 6-5 guard who set a school

you cross half-court, they'll jump you.
And, they're great offensive reboun-
In contrast to the deliberate, set-up
style of Toledo, Michigan's next foe
operates in full throttle most of the
time. Marquette's quickness - not a
trademark of recent Warrior teams -
may pose a problem for Michigan,
assistant coach Bill Frieder indicated
before the team took off for Milwaukee.
"They're a great basketball team,"
praised Frieder. "We're concerned
with their quickness. They have three
of the greatest guards in the country.


Once again, as so many times
before, the Michigan icers star-
ted the game off flat and then
turned the heat on, burning past
Dartmouth 10-2 last night at Yost
Ice Arena.
Wolverine coach Dan Farrell
used the non-conference matchup
with the Big Green to experiment
with some line changes. And as
the score indicated the juggling
did some good in getting the of-
fense on track.
"In a series like this we look for
continuing improvement. We
didn't play well last Saturday
(against Michigan State) so we
were looking for improvement
tonight," he said.
As usual the power play line of
Murray Eaves, Bruno Baseotto,
and Dan Lerg knocked in its
share of goals. But more impor-
tant, Brad Tippett, Ann Arbor
native Ted Speers, and Gordie

like so many times before,
Fricker stayed tough and turned
away 12 shots without letting one
slip past in the first period.
Then midway through the.
period Speers started to bring the
Michigan offense (who managed
only six shots in the first 20
minutes) out of its shell as he put
a bouncing puck past the stunned
Only four minutes later
Baseotto followed suit by pushing
the puck past Jankowski on a
good second effort to give his
team a 2-0 lead.
Coach Farrell attributed his
team's slow start to the intense
playing of the Dartmouth team.
"Dartmouth played very well in
the first two periods. I think our
penalty killing kept us in the
game. They forechecked well,
especially in the first two
periods," he said.
The Big Green had seven power
play attempts in the first two
periods but were not able to
capitalize until 15:55 in the
second period.
By then the game was already
in hand, thanks to the scoring
punch provided by Hampson,

Tippett, and Richmond.
Tippett came from behind the
net and stuffed the puck through
the legs of Jankowski for his nin-
th goal of the season. Richmond's
goal came less than four minutes
when he raced the length of the
ice with Billy Reid and Joe
Milburn trailing him. Only one
defenseman was back for Dar-
tmouth and as soon ashe made a
move towards Reid, Richmond
fired the puck through the legs of
Jankowski. The score gave 'the
Wolverines a 5-1 advantage.
The game really opened up in
the third period as Michigan con-
sistently checked the Eastern
College Athletic Conference team
off the puck. Eaves was the
highlight in the scoring barage as
he picked up his fourth hat trick
of the season.
Farrell plans on using some
different players tonight as Dar-
tmouth returns to Yost. Captain
Doug Todd, who has been sick
with a virus all week may see
some action along with Roger
Bourne, neither player dressed
for last night's contest. The game
is scheduled to start at 7:30.

Marquette's trio of guards. "They're
really quick, and they've got excellent
jump shots," Orr said.
"There's no question about it, they
have great individual players. Really,

they're strong. Artie Green is probably
the fastest, highest jumper you'll ever

As another election year approaches,
Bill Cofield is ready to get his campaign
into full swing. It's not a campaign for
public office, mind you. He just wants
Big Ten basketball followers to take the
Wisconsin Badgers seriously.
In his first three years at the Madison
school, Cofield convinced few people
that the Badgers were legitimate con-
tenders for a conference title. Last year
was no exception, as Wisconsin finished
with a 6-12 Big Ten mark and a 12-15
overall slate.

The Big Ten:
THIS SEASON, however, Cofield is
uttering words like "tournament" and
''contender.'' The reason: all five of
last year's starters return to the lineup.
"Everybody on our team has im-
proved," said Cofield. "We're a much
more mature team than we were a year
ago. We seem to be giving indications
that we're going to play with a great
deal more consistency."
Except for a four game string of wins
at the end of the season, the Badgers
failed to find the formula for beating
conference foes. After defeating
Michigan in Madison January 13, they
hit a ten-game losing skid. Cofield at-
tributed the skid to a lack of bench
"WE FEEL THAT was one of the
areas where we did not get the kind of
play we thought was necessary for us to
be a consistent winner," he said. "We
have to guard against having a slump in
the middle of the season like we did last
year. I think the four wins at the end
have been a positive motivating factor
for us.'
The lack of depth to which Cofield
referred exists primarily in the fron-

tcourt. At the guard position, there is
less concern. There, sharpshooting Wes
Matthews (18.8 ppg.) and playmaker
Dan Hastings should receive plenty of
assistance from Arnold Gaines (6.9).
Hastings beat out Gaines for the spot
opposite Matthews late last season.
"It certainly wouldn't hurt my
feelings to have a situation like Iowa
had last year with (guards Dick) Peth
and (Tom) Norman," said Cofield.
"It's going to be an interesting fight. It
can only make us a better basketball
COFIELD ALSO expressed delight
over the improvement shown by center
Larry Petty (9.9/6.9 rebounds). Petty
lost 15 pounds over the summer, which

should increase his agility at both ends
of the court.
Petty's mates on the front line, Joe
Chrnelich and Claude Gregory, are no
strangers to proficient scoring. The
pair combined for 26 points and 17
rebounds a game, lending the 6-9 Petty
some much-needed help against the
league's taller centers.
THE FEELING in Madison is one of
optimism, of knowledge that the
Badgers can translate their experience
and backcourt strength into a suc-
cessful campaign. At the conference's
annual pre-season media luncheon,
several coaches took the same outlook,
rating Wisconsin and Illinois as the

"dark horses" of the conference race.
"If we ?don't go to a tournament this
year, either the NCAA's or the NIT, I
think we're going to let not only our-
selves down, but everyone else, too,"
said Chrnelich.
That's a drastically different attitude
for a team which has been the target of
some funny (and not-so-funny) jokes
over the past several years.
This is the last in a series of
profiles of Michigan's nine Big Ten
opponents, which have been written
by staff writers Stan Bradbury,
Alan Fanger, and Mark Mihanovic.

Women 's swim team hosts tough
Pitt in first dual meet of season


13 Newport

Will there be a feeling of revenge in
the air when the Michigan women's
swimming team takes on Pittsburgh
this afternoon at Matt Mann Pool?
Well maybe just a little. You see,
Pittsburgh finished 12th in the National
AIWA last spring and Michigan
finished 13th.
"We always get fired up for teams
that have beaten us'in the past," stated

Michigan coach Stu Isaac. "That meet
was in their home pool, now we've got
them in our's."
Both teams have many of the swim-
mers that led their teams in last year's
tournamegt returning.
Michigan has its three All-American
backstrokers back - juniors Sharon
Flaherty and Mary Rish, and
sophomore Barb DonCarlos.
DonCarlos holds the Michigan record
in the 50-yard backstroke at :27.70,
while Rish holds the school record in
the 100- and 200-yard backstroke with
:58.96 and 2:06.53 respectively.
"The backstroke along with the
breaststroke are definitely two of our
strengths," said Coach Isaac. At
breaststroke Michigan has freshman
Kathy Kooser and sophomore Marie
Palko, who set the school records at all
three distances last season.
Junior Julie Bachman and senior
Barb Weinstein lead an extremely
talented Michigan diving corps. Bach-
man has won both the AAU and AIWA
National Championships, and Wein-
stein has an AAU championship of her
On the other side of the coin, Pit-
tsburgh's strengths appear to be in the
freestyle, butterfly, and individual
medley events. The Panthers are led by

Amy Jackson, who is strong in the
freestyle and butterfly sprints.-Jackson
is limited to swimming in only three
events, but Michigan will have a tough
time in the events she enters. Jackson
gets a lot of help in the butterfly events
from Nancy Henry, who is strong in the
100- and 200-yard fly. Bonnie Durdy and
Jody Klotz lead Pittsburgh's strong 400-
yard individual medley crew.
"The key to the meet will be how well
we can do in Pittsburgh's strong even-
ts," said Isaac. If we can pick up a fair
share of the points in the butterfly and
freestyle, we should be alright."
Since this is the first dual meet of the
season, Isaac is more or less using the
meet as a warmup for the bigger meets
later in the year. The team is obviously
pointing toward the Big Ten champion-
ships and the AIWA Championships
later in the winter.
"I'm looking forward to seeing how
some of the freshmen will perform un-
der the pressure of their first dual mee
t, said Isaac. Among these freshmen
are Kathy Kooser and Lisa Larsen, who
will swim in the butterfly events for
Michigan. The performance of these
freshmen could be a key to Michigan's
hopes against Pittsburgh, as well as in
future meets.
