By DON MacLACHLAN

SINCE ITS DOUBLE-OVERTIME LOSS at the hands of
Providence eight days ago the Michigan basketball team
has a few new looks.
The Wolverines are no longer top-ranked in the country
and Joel Thompson has emerged as the new starting forward
opposite co-captain John Robinson.
The, junior jumping jack from Flint replaced the aggres-
sive Tom Staton in the starting line-up. Last night in his first
start in Crisler Arena, Thompson netted 13 points hitting on
six of eight shots from the floor.
"I used to be hesitant to shoot," said Thompson who
has hit on 65 per cent of his field goal attempts this
year. "Now I go ahead and take the shot and don't worry
about it instead of being undecided.
"I doubt many people can block my shot - there aren't
too many forwards taller than I am," Thompson added.
In addition to his hot hand, Thompson haunts opposing
forwards with his spring-like jumping ability.
"A lot of players can be intimidated, and any little thing
can throw someone off when they are shooting. Even if I don't
block the shot I can force them to miss it.
Staton: Mr. Defense

double figures as Michigan blew
out Northwestern 102-65 in the
Big Ten opener at Crisler Arena
last night.
Michigan built a 16 point lead
in the first eight minutes of the
game and from then on it was
all over for the Wildcats.
"They took us out of our game
quite quickly and we couldn't
regroup," said Northwestern
Coach Tex Winter. "It's an old
cliche and I hate to use it, but
we were intimidated."
RICKEY GREEN led all
scorers wi.h 20 points and John
Robinson added 18. Joel Thomp-
son, starting his second game,
scored 13 while guards Steve

"I'd say we were ready for
the Big Ten opener," said
Michigan coach Johnny Orr.
"Northwestern has lost some,
but they've never been blitzed
like that.
"I think that's the sharpest
we've been for the longest
stretch so far."
Billy McKinney led North-i
western with 16 points, well be-
low his season's average (21.4),
while Tony Allen and Mike
Campbell scored 12 apiece.
"Rickey Green did an out-i
standing job on McKinney. He
was really ready to play," said
Orr.
"I LIKE TO be known as a

balanced ball player," said
Green. "Playing against a quick
guard like McKinney wears you
out faster. I like to press - II
like to surprise my man. I look
for a time and then I dart in."

Stavale leaves

Stavale left the Michigan
basketball team and is now
on a full athletic scholarship
at Western Michigan. He will
be eligible to play next Jan-
uary.

"Anytime you win like that
you've got to be happy, and I'm
happy. If we win 17 more like
that, we're on the road to At-
lanta, said Orr.
ATLANTA IS the site of this ;
year's NCAA finals. And al-
though Michigan is no longer un-
defeated (having lost in double
overtime at Providence), no-
body is calling it quits.
Orr acknowledged the, pres-
sure that goes with the number
one ranking, but said, "Would
we rather still be number one?
You bet your life we would.
You sure hate to give that up."
Another change involves the
starting lineup. After the loss to
Providence, Joel Thompson re-
placed forward Tom Staton.
"Our lineup may change de-
pending on who we're up
against," Orr explained. "Joel
has given us an offensive lift,
and Staton adds a lot of quick-
ness. He comes off the bench
with about as good an attitude
as I've ever seen."

yet to see a close contest this
year. Despite the sellout crowds,
some of the players aren't sat-
isfied with fan support.
"The main' talk of the game
among the players after the
game wasn't the 40 point win,
but how bad the fans were,"
said one starter. "If you jut my
name in, the fans would just
hoot on me."
"After two beautiful dunks by

Joel, ten people get up," said a
sub. "The rest sit back like
they expect it. What does it
take?"
"'Hell, they act like they're
in the theater and just sit there
ana clap," said the first. "I
could round up 200 guys from
my old high school and they'd
make more noise than 13,000 at
Crisler."
Northwestern drops' to 2-8,
while Michigan is 8-1.
Michigan's next action is at
Crisler tomorrow against Wis-
consin. The, Badgers lost to
Michigan State last night, 84-61.
Tip-off is 2:05.

Northwestern negated

Northwestern zoned Michigan
early, but the strategy failed.
The Wildcats reluctantly found
themselves in a run-and-gun

Known for his defensive hustle, the sophomore from
Ferndale is called upon to shut down the opposing big
gun, whether it be Nate Davis of South Carolina last Sun-
day or ex-Notre Dame star Adrian Dan tley in the NCAA
tournament last year.
"When a player is hot at the time, I try to apply a little
extra pressure that causes mistakes," Staton said. "Being small-
er gives me the advantage of being a little quicker. I'm just
a little fella under the boards."
Grote: Hard-nosed?
The other new look is Steve Grote's two black eyes, as
a result of his broken nose, an injury suffered last week in
Providence.
"It's taken me awhile to get used to breathing through my
mouth," said -Grote, who was panting for breath on a couple
of occasions last night.
Despite his fragile nose, Grote continues his physical style
of. play and is not afraid to drive inside and risk reinjuring
his nose.
"I guess I just don't think about it," Grote said. "I
just hope it doesn't get hit again. I'm going to start wear-
ing a protective device in practice, but not in the games."
The Wolverines other neW look is no longer undefeated due
to the 82-81 drubbing at Providence.
"It was a heartbreaking defeat," said Orr.
"It was amazing how many times we had a chance to
win the game," Grote said. "Sometimes you lose and there's
a reason why - but we played hard and a victory jst wasn't
meant -to be."

By RICH LERNER
Grand Valley employed a
furious full-court press to run
off 11 straight points late in the
game, and spoil the Michigan
women's home opener, 84-78,
last night.
With star guard Lydia Sins
on the bench in foul trouble,
the Wolverines could not bring'
the ball upcourt against the
Laker press, allowing Grand
Valley severe easy baskets aft-
er Michigan miscues.
Kim Hansen paced the vis-
itors wish 29 points and 11
rebounds, including three bas-
kets within a ten-second span
during Michigan's late col-
lapse, putting GVSU ahead
for good, 77-74. Carol Vande-
bunte and Diane Miller sup-
ported Hansen with 22 and 15
points respectively.
Guard Melinda Fertig dis-
played a strong shooting touch,

pacing Michigan with 24 points.«
But with Sims on the bench, the
5-5 sophomore could not handle
the Laker pressure, committing
15 turnovers.
Grand Valley jumped to an
18-6 lead in the game's first ten
minutes, but Michigan utilized
a press of its own to battle back,
taking 40-37 halftime lead on
the strength of Fertig's shoot-
ing.
The Lakers stormed out at the
start of the second half, regain-
ing the lead at 46-44. However,
Michigan's full-court zone press
and the accurate shooting of
Fertig and Karen Gilhooly pow-
ered the Wolverines to 16
straight points and back into
the lead,, 60-46.
Faced with a 14-point de-
ficit, the Lakers applied their
press, closing the gap to
66-60, while Sims languished
on the bench with four fouls.

With Michigan still leading by
six and 6:27 remaining in the
game, Wolverine coach Carmel
Borders re-inserted Sims. But a
mere two seconds later the
senior from Detroit picked up
her fifth foul.
Fueled by Wolverine turn-
overs, the Lakers overtook
Michigan with two-and-a-half
minutes remaining after Han-
sen's three straight baskets.
"Our press was very success-
ful." said Borders. "But the
other team's was quite success-
ful too. I keep frying to tell
people women's basketball is
exciting."
