By MIKE HALPIN
It's been so cold lately, that
we could all use a ray of sun-
shine, a glimmer of hope, a
spark of optimism.
Meet Carmel Borders.
THE, MICHIGAN WOMEN'S
basketball coach has good rea-
son to be down. Her team is
as cold as the weather, shoot-
ing an icy 33 per cent from
the floor and a chilling 55 per
cent from the free throw line.
* The ,team, which wasbsup-
posed to be an excellent blend
of experience and new talent,
dropped its first three games.
* Finally, the team is about
to begin a long string ofl away
games which won't see them
playing at home again until
February 5.
So, Coach Borders might nat-
urally be expected to be some-
thing less' than pleased with
matters as they stand.
"HOW DO I FEEL about us
being 3 and 3 at this point in

Hopeful women cagers shoot

the season?" she mused. "Well,
after being 0 and 3, I guess it's
about the best we could hope
for. We just ran up against
tough competition, but those
were close games.
"We've been slow learning to
play as a team, but I think
we've corrected a lot of errors.
Every game we get stronger."
Her optimistic outlook was
even more apparent when she
looked ahead to this weekend's
Can-Am Tournament at Wind-
sor University.
"We're concentrating on get-
ting our offense in shape. On
the floor we've got to be able
to run the pattern and do what
we practice. Things_ should run
much smoother this weekend."
THE TOURNAMENT, which
will ,be played under interna-
tional rules (wider lane, more
physical play, looser . officiat-
ing, and fewer stoppages of
play) will feature four Cana-
