By JOHN KAHLER
The University of Michigan is
not usually noted for choosing
second best in anything.
So it came as little surprise
that, when assistant basketball
coach Dick Honig decided to
leave the game to enter private
business last summer the man
who was hired to replace him
was coach Bill Frieder of Flint
Frieder's record for his three
years as head man for the Vik-
ings included two state champ-
ionships and a Class A consecu-

ti-e victary string of 37 games.
In his first season as Flint's
boss after being elevated from
the J.V.s, Frieder and Northern
fazed an impressive and heavily
favored Detroit Kettering squad
(led by Lindsay Hairston and Joe
Johnson) in the finals. Although
Frieder's club was given no
chance for victory, they captur-
ed the state crown by a comfort-
The next year, Frieder's Vik-
ings went undefeated (25-0) and
naturally repeated as s t a t e
champs. Last season, w h e n
Frieder was forced to complete-
ly rebuild his team, Flint North-
ern compiled an 18-7 record.
Featured on these Viking teams
were such people as Michigan's
own Wayman Britt, and a pair
of forwards, Tom McGill a n d
Terry Furlow, who are presently
starting for Michigan State.
Nor was Frieder neglected for
honors. His 1972 undefeated team
earned him Coach of the Year
honorsand a place in Sports Il-
lustrated's "Faces in the Crowd"
All in all, Frieder has com-
piled a very impressive reccid
for a former vegetable salesman
who never played college ball.
And why did he pass up the
chance to become a local Legend
in Flint (coaching b-ball, not
selling fruit) to venture into the
uncertain field of college coach-
"I felt that T'd accomplisheal
all I coid at the high school
loveR." s'id Frieder. "A combina-
tion of factors led me to accept
the Michig-n job. First, I didn't
relly care for teaching in high
school, and secondly, I was a U
of M grad and it was an excel-
lent chance to get in on a good
Frieder played his high school
ball at Saginaw High "On a
pretty good team." He spent his
college years at Michigan dur-
ing the Cazzie Russell era, but
did not play ball. "My studies
took up too much time," e x-
Asked about past successes, the
likeable coach responded, "The
25-0 team was the best I've ever
coached. We won all the games
we were supposed to that year.
Pontiac Central gave us quite a
battle in the finals.
"It's never easy to beat a team
three times in t~e same season.
You tend to get overconfid nt.
B'it the players came through
when they had to."
Frieder's main responsibility
this season will be handling the
varsity reserves, assisted by Bird
Carter. In their first game this
year, the V.R.s under Cartier
(Frieder was in South Carolina
scouting Toledo) showed m o r e
polish than could be expected of
a team of walk-ons.
As for goals at Michigan,
Friederestated, "My objectives
here are to help improve t h e
basketball program and to as-
sist in recruiting and scouting.
We hope to have a good season
this year that will help us in
recruiting players for n e x t
year. I'm pretty well k n o w
around the state, so that should
help in recruiting."
Bill Frieder makes his coach-
ing debut for Michigan Saturday
night at six when his Varsity Re-
serves take on the University of
Detroit reserves at U of D. Re-
member the name. You will pro-
bably be hearing a lot more of
it in future seasons of Michigan

THE SKIER'S WORLD, Morten Lund
This season's gift for any skier-a big, spectacular volume that
captures the drama, the fun, and the exhilaration of the skiing
"Whether it's the Matterhorn or the sixth hole of the local golf
course, if it's got a slope skiers can slide on, it's a hill," writes k
Morten Lund, and in this book he covers them all. The high
Route 100 in Vermont . . . classic ski spots like St. Moritz and 41
route from Chamonx across the Alps to Courmeyeur in Italy . .4
Kitzbuhel . . . Old World shrines like St. Anton and Ze.rmatt
. and in the States, places like Stowe and North Conway in 40
the East and Aspen and Vail in the West. The reader will experi-
ence through the stirring text and beautiful color photography of
this book the satisfaction of conquering the snow, the terrain, and
the cold through body control and movement; the achievement
of the speedmen: Olympians, jumpers, and racers; and the cele-
p bration, relaxation, and joie de vivre of the apres ski. Morten 4
aI Lund, an expert skier and an editor of SKI magazine, is consider-
ed one of the best ski-te.chnique writers in the world.
