Iowa maplemen seek comeback

Austin Carr, former All-
American at Notre Dame, has
hit for about 25 points a game
in his last five starts for the
Cleveland Cavaliers of the Na-
tional Basketball Association,
but those 25 points will be sore-
ly missed by the Irish when they
host thei Wolverines in the sea-
son opener for both clubs to-
Carr, along with all four oth-
er starters from last year's
squad, has departed the college
scene leaving new Irish Coach
Richard Phelps with eight soph-
omores and three upperclassmen
to work with. As a result, Notre
Dame will be starting five soph-
ornores against last year's sec-
ond place Big Ten team.
However, one shouldn't get the
idea that the Irish will be push-
overs. Last year the Notre Dame
Frosh squad rampaged over the
Wolverine freshmen by 40
points. Michigan coach Johnny
Orr has respect for both Notre
Dame's young team and the
Irish's new mentor.
"(Bob) Valibus and (Gary)
Novack are very fine players;
they're very capable. They
(Notre Dame) had a very fine
recruiting year."
Valibus is a fine passing and
ball-handling guard from Mi-
ami. Orr expects him to handle
the ball most of the time. Vali-
bus is also considered a fine de-
fensive player.
Valibus was a high school
teammate of Michigan sopho-
more guard John Bridges and
they teamed up in their senior
year to lead Carol City to a
high state ranking. Bridges is
temporarily ineligible, and will
not play against Notre Dame.
Gary Novack, a 6-7, 190 for-
ward, is considered the best
front line man for the Irish.
Novak is a good shooter with
tricky inside moves.
Phelps, the Irish's first year
coach, comes to Notre Dame
from Fordham where he did a
one-year stint leading the Rams
to a surprisingly good season
and a berth in the NCAA tour-
Phelps' teams have b e e n
trademarked by running of-
fenses and a tight pressing de-
fense. But if the Notre Dame
Varsity-Freshman game is any
indication, the Irish will not
continue the running style of
The Irish mentor doesn't
think his squad is the running
type of team. "I don't think
we're a running club; I don't
think we have that speed; we're
not a quick club."
Orr is not going on the basis
of the Freshman-varsity tilt.

daily s
The Irish did little' pressing or
running in that contest, but ac-
cording to Orr, "We expect them
to do both."
Michigan is hoping to get off
to a good start and gain mo-
mentum that would carry
through, to the Big Ten season.
Last season the Wolverines took
off to a sizzling 0-3 record
against nationally ranked Notre
Dame, Kentucky, and Duke.
Michigan didn't get moving un-
til the Rainbow Classic in
Hawaii when the Wolverines
plastered eventual NCAA tour-
nament finalist Villanova.
But the Wolverines will be
playing without big Ken Brady
in center. Ernie Johnson has
looked good filling in for the
6-10 Brady, and he should pro-
vide a little more speed in the
frontcourt. Orr added, "I'm
anxious to see how we're going
to play without Brady."
Orr apparently is very happy
with the play of junior forward
John Lockard so far. Lockard
is filling in at the front court
spot vacated by Johnson when
he was moved to center.
Michigan's mentor is going
with his two co-captains at the
guard position, Wayne Grabiec
and Dave Hart. Orr plans to

use his starting five most of the
way but will use Terry Tyler,
Greg Buss, and Steve Bazelon
to spell the starters.
But the attention will be fo-
cused on Michigan's great All-
American candidate Henry Wil-
more. The Wolverines' 6-31
forward ranked third in- scor-
ing in the Big Ten last year and
ninth in rebounding. Michigan's
oftfense will try to get the ball
to Wilmore as often as possible.
Orr remarked, "Our offense is
keyed for Henry (Wilmore) and
Grabiec." The Wolverines will
also try to run on the Irish, and
may go into a zone press to try
and upset the inexperienced
Notre Dame squad.
Irish coach Phelps has high
respect for his Wolverine oppon-
ents and calls them "a well
balanced team with a lot of
physical strength; they play a
good inside game." His plan
against Michigan will be to
"keep them off the boards."
It's too early to tell how good
or bad the Irish squad may be,
but Phelps says, "We're going to
give everyone a game. Some
people are saying that if you
now play Notre Dame ten games
you will win nine of them. But
we're going to play that 'one'
out of ten every game."
The Irish play one of the most
grueling schedules in the coun-
try including two encounters
with NCAA champ UCLA. So
the Irish hope to get on the
winning track early to gain their
own brand of momentum. But a
sloppy game is likely for the
two teams opening their season,
and the Wolverines ,experience
may prove to be the difference.

The Iowa Hawkeye Hoop squad
is hoping to turn over a new leaf
this- year, while turning over few-
er basketballs, in anticipation ofl
a winning season.
The Iowa City fans expect no
less than a reversal of last years
9-15 record, having gotten used to
championships and such in 1970
when the Hawkeyes finished 20-5
with the help of All American
John Johnson.
Last year's squad, though fin-
ishing in a tie for seventh within
the conference, at 4-10, was not
without its moments. Led by now
graduated Fred Brown, an Asso-
ciated Press All American. the
Hawks were spectacular at times.
Second year coach Dick Schult-
ze is optimistic about the 71-72
season. He commented, "We have
a lot of players returning - young
men who give 1,00 percent. With
what we have coming back, plus
some excellent prospects off the
freshman team, and the addition
of our junior college transfers, we
should be a highly respectable
team next season."
Most of Schultz's hopes rest in
the hands of Junior center Kevin
Kunnert. Kunnert, who tips the
scales at 231 pounds, also stretch-
es skyward a full seven feet. Still
young, Kunnert has obviously not
yet finished growing as last year
he played at a 'mere' 6'11!
Last year, Kunnert averaged
10.4 points per game while snag-
ging 9.4 rebounds. In their game
against Michigan's Wilmore led
Wolverines, he pulled down a re-I
markable 22 rebounds.
The Hawkeye's biggest prob-
lem this year looks to be a lack of
game experience. Kunnert is the

only player on the squad who has
played regularly in the past,
starting all 24 games last year.
Coach Schultz said, "The num-
ber one item we are striving for
in the December schedule is ma-
turity. We are a young club,
though Kevin has had a years
play. Overall, though, we are just
The lack of game time play is
liable to show up early as the
Hawkeyes travel to Los Angeles
Saturday night to take , on,
UCLA's highly ranked Bruins,
last year's national champions.
The first game of the season is
scheduled for tonight, in Iowa
City, against Hardin-Simmons.
According to Sports Informa-
tion Director Phil Haddy, the
Hawkeyes will rely on a "pres-
sure" type of game plan, both
offensively and defensively. The
Hawkeyes will do a lot of run-
ning and will guard their op-
ponents closely in attempting to
force turnovers and mistakes.
Junior college transfer Rick
Williams is being counted on to
replace the much missed Brown at
one guard. Williams, at 6-3, is
quick and a fine marksman, hav-
ing averaged 23.4 points per game
at Fort Dodge. Ironically, Brown
was also a Junior college transfer.
The other guard position will be
held by Glenn Angelino, a 6-4, 181
pound junior. Though Angelino
saw game time in 22 clashes last
year, he only started once. He av-
eraged 4.4 points per game.
One of the forwards, Neil Fege-
bank, a 6-7 sophomore, holds real
promise for the Hawkeyes. Last
season as a freshman, he swished
through 174 points in ten games
Joe Gould has the starting nod

at the other forward position. In
16 1971 appearances and two Big
Ten starts, the 6-7 Junior scored
50 points and pulled down 40 re-
The overall prospects' for Iowa
this season lie in their ability to
overcome inexperience. Kunnert
at center is quite imposing and
Williams too is highly regarded.
The season could be an improve-
ment over last year, but ; a Big
Ten Championship seems out of
the question. 4Iowever, only time
will tell.

ERNIE JOHNSON (30) leaps high in the air to shoot over the
freshman's C. J. Kupec in last week's freshman varsity game.
Johnson is filling in for the injured Ken Brady at the center
position, and will start there against Notre Dame tonight. Brady,
6-10, led the Wolverines in rebounding last season and is expected
to be out of action at least until the start of Michigan's Big Ten
