INVADING HURONS ARE 0-2:
Cagers favored in home opener
By CUB SCHWARTZ
The Michigan basketball team last faced Eastern
Michigan back in January of 1976. It was a miser-
able night, between the snow, the cold and a lack-
luster game. Michigan routinely handled the
Hurons 94-76 and coach John Orr was compelled to
thank the reporters and fans for coming out on such
a lousy night.
Well, the weather may be better this year but the
result of the contest should be the same.
EASTERN DROPPED its opening two games of
the year while participating in the New Orleans Tip-
Off Tourney last week. In the opener the Hurons
were edged by New Orleans 84-83 in overtime. The
Privateers, who last year claimed the NCAA
Division II National Crown, went on to win the tour-
nament defeating Louisiana Tech, 90-66.
In the consolations, the Hurons didn't fare any
better, losing to Tennessee at Chatanooga, 66-63.
Actually Eastern Michigan fields a team quite
similar to Michigan in at leapt one respect. Of the
starting five, only one is a returning starter from
last year's team.
That man is Kenny Harmon, a 6-5 forward who
averaged just under 10 points per game for Eastern
AP Photo last year. In the first two games this season Harmon
has averaged 14.5 points per game and leads the
rm while Hurons in rebounding with an 11.5 average.
y with 19 THE REMAINDER of the starting five is a mix of
three transfers and one freshman.
Tony Jamison, a 6-3 forward, is the leading scorer
on the squad. A transfer from Kent State, where he
started for two years, Jamison has netted 37 points
in two appearances.

Al Cicotte at the pivot won't help out the Hurons in,
the height department much either. In fact, with
Cicotte at 6-7, tonight will be one of the few times-A
Joel Thompson won't face a taller opponent.
EMU COACH Ray Scott, formerly of the Pistons,
is faced with a front line of 6-3, 6-5, and 6-7-not
exactly a cage coach's dream.
"We have a lot of new players this season," Scott
said. "We won't be as tall but we will definitely be
quicker, overall we have more talent."
In the backcourt Scott has Hank Wiggins, a tran-
sfer from Shaw College in Detroit and Bennette
Gay, a freshman from Grand Rapids Creston.,
Neither is expected'to provide Eastern with much
THUS, EASTERN will no doubt find the 13th
ranked Wolverines a tough challenge. But Scott has- -
braced himself for the inevitable drubbings his
team will receive, not only at the hands of Michigan
but other non-conference foes such as Arizona,
Detroit, DePaul and Indiana State.
"This is no doubt the toughest schedule I have
seen," Scott said, "but I know it will teach us a lot of
things and make us mentally and physically ready
to play in the Mid-American Conference."
The Buck's Dave Meyers looks like he wants a piece of Leon Douglas' a.
driving in for a lay-up against the Piston's during last night's a
Milwaukee. Bob Lanier sank a free throw, completing a three-point pla
seconds left in the game to give the Pistons a 100-99 victory.

It's the end of the fall term and
along with it crops up a multitude of
problems and worries for you,,Joe
Fear not, Joe, you've got company,
- the Michigan wrestling team.
Coach Bill Johannesen's squad is
fighting to overcom~e injuries in the
lower weight classes. With Jim
Mathias and Bob McCalvey out at 126
along with Lee Joseph and Bill
Evashevski gone at 142, the Wolver-
ines are losing points in the lower
weights. It cost them their match last
Sunday when a late rally in the upper
weight classes fell just short in a
24-18 setback at the hands of Michi-
"ONCE WE get some guys back in
the light weights we'll be a strong
team," said Johannesen. "Right now
though, we're really getting hurt in
Spell that hurt with a capital
o-u-c-h. Todd Schneider gave the
Wolverines an initial lift at 118, with a
solid 8-5 decision over Spartan Shawn
White in his first eight minute match
of the year. The party then abruptly
Rich Strader, Kirk Arndt, Jim
Simmons, and Karl Briggs each lost
superior decisions to Spartan oppon-
ents and the Wolverines were faced
with a mid-match deficit of 17-3.
NCAA CHAMP IONMark Churella
reignited Michigan hopes with a 17-4
decision over Jim Foley. "Just your
average masterful Churella perform-
ance," commented Johannesen.
Following an 8-2 decision against
Bill Konovsky, Steve Fraser (177)
and Bill Petoskey (190) each battled
to a draw and heavyweight Steve
Bennet pinned his man to finish the
scoring for Michigan.
Of no help to the Michigan cause
was the indefinite suspension of Brad
Holman, one of the Wolverines' top
performers of last year, with a 15-3
"HE ONLY came to practice once
last week," said Johannesen. "No ex-
planations, he just stopped showing.
