EMU hires Blue assistant Boyce

From Wire Service Reports
Jim Boyce, an assistant coach at
Michigan for the past four years, was
named yesterday to replace Ray Scott
as head basketball coach at nearby
Eastern Michigan University.
Scott was fired March 6 at the end of
EMU's disappointing 9-18 season. He
coached EMU for three years.
Boyce signed a two-year contract for
a reported $24,000 per year. The two-
year contract is a policy of the univer-
sity, instituted last year by the Board of

Detroit, Boyce moved to his job at
"I felt this particular job would be a
super situation for me," Boyce said at a
morning news conference. "It was
close, in the area where I've lived all
my life and worked all my jobs, and I
know a lot of people in this area."
DESPITE POOR facilities and the
lack of a winning tradition, Boyce
promised to put his nose to the grin-
dstone in his efforts to turn the program
"I hope to get to .500 next season,"
Boyce said. "We want to establish
stability in the program and create in-

people to know Eastern is on the way

severely criticized for his inability to
successfully recruit blue-chip basket-,
ball talent during his stay at EMU.
"It's late," Boyce said,
acknowledging his lagging position in
the recruiting race. "It takes time to
get established, to get to know the
player's parents, establish a love affair
and get a name on a dotted line.
"It's going to be difficult, but we'll
get some good students first, and
basketball players second. I'm looking
for players with a strong commitment
to Eastern and the program.
"I'm going to have a team meeting as
soon as possible," he said, "and talkto
each returning player individually."
Boyce said that in order to be commit-
ted to the program, the players would
have to make some sacrifices.

Gaines named coachi
at San Diego State
SAN DIEGO (AP) - San Diego State is turning over its faltering
basketball fortunes to flamboyant Dave "Smokey" Gaines, a one-time
Harlem Globetrotter with a 47-10 record as head coach at the University
of Detroit.
The choice to succeed Tim Vezie, who was fired after five years,
came down to either the 38-year-old Gaines, Bobby Dye of Fullerton J
State or LaDell Anderson of Utah State.
Gaines was considered better at promotion, an official at San Diego
State said. Despite a 13,000-seat arena, only 400 season tickets were sold
to Aztecgames in 1978-79.
"This is entertainment - this is show business," Gaines commen-
ted to reporters after arriving to be interviewed.
He was an assistant to Dick Vitale when the pair began in Detroit
five years ago.
In an interview Gaines said "If I can get kids to come to an inner-
city school like Detroit, I know I can sell 'em on San Diego."
"We're going to run and press and shoot," he said. "We'll be ex-
citing. The whole state's going to have Aztec fever. All I can say is, ยข
'Look out'UCLA and USC'."
Gaines, who is black, said "in entertainment, they don't look at your
color. Besides, you're talking to a man who can relate to anyone. I can
get along with a dead man as long as he don't move."

No shoii
The "showdown" everyone had been waiting for
never even came about for the Michigan men's tennis
team this past weekend in Lexington, Kentucky.
Though the Wolverines crushed Kentucky's Wild-
cats on Saturday, 9-0, the Florida Gators, a conten-
ding power from the Southeastern Conference and
Michigan's opponent on Sunday, never showed up.
Due to adverse weather conditions the Florida
team, which had played Vanderbilt in Nashville on
Saturday and had begun to fly to Lexington on Satur-
day night, had to turn around because the Lexington
airport was closed on account of a pelting rain.
THUS, FOR better or for worse, the Wolverines,
with number one singles player Jeff Etterbeek out
with a bad ankle (he is expected to be in action this
Friday at Illinois) and dud Shaufler fighting back
problems, didn't have to duel the Gators, who were
expected to provide Michigan with its first real test of
the young season.
But considering the way Michigan manhandled
Kentucky on Saturday, perhaps Florida might have
been better off staying in Nashville.
In what Coach Brian Eisner termed "our best
overall performance as a team this year," the un-
defeated Blue netters (4-0) captured every set but one
in recording their second shutout in a row.


Blue netters' big match

* with Floridaz
NUMBER ONE singles player Matt Horwitch, for-
ced up a notch to take the injured Etterbeek's place,
dominated Kentucky's Tony Alrow for an easy win, 6-
1, 6-1. Eisner felt Horwitch played "one of his finest
matches in his two years at Michigan."
In number two singles action, Michigan's Mike
Leach eked out a 7-6, 7-6 victory over Scott Webb,
while number three man Jud Shaufler easily disposed
of the Wildcats' Jud Brown. Number four Peter Osler
also won easily in two sets over his opponent; fifth-

slated Jack Neinken survived a third-set tie-breaker,
Ihor DeBryn, seeing competitive action for the first
time this season, took a two-set win over his Ken"
tucky counterpart.
The Michigan number one doubles team of Leach
and Shaufler beat Alrow and Bob Worley of Kerb
tucky, while Osler and Neinken in the second doubles
slot and Horwitch and DeBryn at number three
doubles both posted easy two-set wins.
YET WHAT DO all these wins mean? Is Michigan,,.
rated 15th in the nation, that strong a tennis team, or
can it be that Kentucky was just that weak? Takirig
nothing away from the Wolverines, they still haven: t
faced a real"power" this spring.
Eisner admitted Kentucky has suffered several key
losses, including injuries to two quality- stariting
players, which forced the 'Cats to fill in the missing
slots with freshmen, but he also commented that
Michigan is "much stronger than last year" and feels
his squad is "underrated" as far as the national polls
It's really too early to tell. Michigan, rated by far
the highest of all Big Ten teams, is shooting for its
12th conference title in a row. The chase begin

traditionally has given the Blue netters a tough mat-

Michigan State's magic act may have
rubbed off on the school's other athletic
programs, but the Wolverine's
women's tennis squad has an act of its
own that the Spartans will have to con-
tend with. A sophomore clean-up act.
Sue Weber and Kathy Krickstein
have mopped up on every opponent
they've faced this season. Weber is 10-0
and Krickstein 7-0 from their second
and fifth singles slots, respectively.
And Coach Theo Shepherd sees no
reason why their undefeated streaks
can't continue. "Sue is a very steady
backcourt player and has a very good
serve. She doesn't come to net too often,
but she works on it in practice,"
Shepherd said.
KRICKSTEIN, who as a freshwoman
compiled a 14-3 record at second and
third singles, is coming off of an ankle
injury and hasn't reached the top of her
game, according to Shepherd.
Krickstein is also 5-0 in doubles,
coupled with yetaanother sophomore,
co-captain Whit Stodghill. "You've got
to give John Atwood (last year's coach)
the credit for recruiting those three
sophomores," said Shepherd.

Stodghill (8-1) at third singles, and
junior co-captain Kathy Karzen (7-2) at
first singles have also cleaned up their
share of opponents.
One of Karzen's losses came in
Michigan's 7-2 victory over MSU in the
first month of the season against Deb-

bie Mascarin.
But Coach Shepherd said that Karzen
could turn the tables on Mascarin. "It's
always close when they play. She got
behind early and couldn't quite catch
up," said Shepherd. "If she could get a
better start, she'd have a good chance.",
SHEPHERD SAID that the outcome
of the match should be no different
from the first, "although they'll be out
for us, and we may be a little overcon-
A slight dent in Michigan's lineup
could occur if senior Barb Fischley is
unable to play fourth singles. She is
currently hampered with the flu and
may sit out. If so, Shepherd said that
Krickstein and junior Ann Kercher will
each move up a notch and junior Debbie
Rentschler will play sixth singles.
When Eastern Michigan hosts the
Wolverines on Thursday at 3:15, most
of Michigan's clean-up crew will be
given the day off in singles, according
to Shepherd. She said that a lot of other
players will see action because EMU
"is not up to par with the top teams in
the Big Ten."
Today's contest against the Spartans
is scheduled for 3:00 p.m. on the Ferry
Field Courts, weather permitting. If
not, the match will be moved indoors to
the Track and Tennis Building.

It's a shame basketball seasons
aren't like the banquets that end theme,
no losers, just many smiles and a lot of
good-natured ribbing.
The insults were abundant, as were
fond remembrances and season-ending
tributes last night, as Michigan wrap-
ped up this year's basketball season
with its annual basketball bust in
Crisler Arena.
SENIOR CENTER Phil Hubbard and
sophomore guard Marty Bodnat
walked off with all the trophies at thl
annual affair. Hubbard was named t0
recipient of the Most Valuable Player
award, along with the best defensie
player award.
Bodnar was also a double winne,
receiving the most improved playet
award, in addition to picking up hii
second consecutive hustler award, the
same trophy Bodnar received in 1978.
Hubbard, who has one year of
eligibility left, won the MVP award in
1977 when he led the Wolverines to an
NCAA tournament berth and a number
one UPI regular season rating. Bodnar,
whd led the Big Ten this year in field
goal shooting percentage, is the only
person other than Steve Grote to win
the hustler award, created in honor '.
the former Michigan sparkplug in 1977.-
ALSO HONORED were departing
seniors Alan Hardy and co-captain Tom
Staton. The two began their Michigan
careers the year of the Wolverines'
rush to the NCAA final against Indiana'
A special tribute was paid to former
Blue assistant coach Jim Boyce by the
graduating Hardy, who cited the new
EMU head coach as one of the maim
reasons for his signing with Michigan,
Boyce, who served as the Wolverines'
top recruiter for four years, admitted
happily that he hoped the Wolverines
would win all their games but three
over the next four years.
