Cornell Williams'led all Mich-

there was never any doubt

Michigan coach Dan Fife was
very pleased with the contest
saying, "We played an excel-
lent game. One of the high
points was that all our start-
ers were in double figures."
One of the keys to Michigan's
overwhelming victory was their
fast break. "This is the first
time we have had lots of fast
break layups," added Fife.

The two teams will meet again
in Michigan's next game on
February 3 in Crisler.
Meanwhile, the women's bas-

Debol tur
Last week, the Edmonton Oilers of the WIJA trad-
ed their rights to four players to the New England
Whalers in return for two players, one of whom was
Michigan center Dave DeBol.
The otherwise rather reserved DeBol got a little
ego lift out of the trade, saying, "I guess they really
want you when they trade two for four."
And it is little wonder that DeBol would be so
highly regarded as he is on the way to his best
season ever in his three years as a Michigan
hockey player. As of last week, he was the third
leading scorer in the WCHA and is also the team's
leading point producer.
The junior education major got off to a slightly
slow start in the beginning of the season, not get-
ting the goals he wanted. "Early in the season I
had plenty of scoring chances but I just couldn't
put it in.
"I think I was trying too hard. After I thought it
over, I decided not to push as hard."
The a titude is apparently working as DeBol has
collected fwo of his three hat tricks since Christmas
and has scored in nearly all those games.
He is quick to give a lot of the credit for his
prolific goal getting of late to teammate Bill Thay-
er, who was moved to his wing in a recent change
of lines.




"If the puck comes to his (Thayer's) side and I
break, the puck is right on my stick.
"Against Tech I had three breakaways because
Thayer put it right there. If he had put it in my
skates, I'd have had to slow down and someone
could have caught me."
Lest you think that DeBol is only on the receiving
end of such passes, he has 24 assis s in addition to
his 21 goals. "I'm. really pleased about my assists
this year. Coach Farrell said I would have to pass
off more cause they would be guarding me closer
this year," DeBol said.
In two previous seasons defense has been a bit of
a problem for the Wolverine deker.
"I never played defense in high school," DeBol
points out. "This year I'm trying to come into the
zone and see my guy and the puck at the same
time. I think I've improved a bit."
All of this is even more impressive when one
considers that DeBol was a walk on when he came
here. "I had grade problems and had to pull a 3.8
my last term to even get in here." Farrell promised
him a scholarship if he made the team in his fresh-
man year, and that issue has been under little doubt
since his first few games in a Michigan uniform.
He could have gone to Canada to play junior A
hockey. but that wouldn't have left him an education
to fall back on if he hadn't made it in pro hockey.

: Playing in the pros has been an ambition of his
for a long time, but he has the sense to realize that
it can't work out for everyone. "If I don't make it in
the pros I would like to coach hockey, maybe at the
high school level."
He already has had some experience in teaching
youngsters the finer points of hockey. Last sum-
mer he worked at a local hockey school while
living in Ann Arbor.
Hockey isn't the only sport that "Deebs", as his
friends call him, plays well and enjoys. "I like to
play golf in the summer. Sometimes some of the
other guys on the team get together and play," he
"I even used to play for money."
That was until he and John McCahill lost 20 dol-
lars to Dan Fardig and Mike Coffman one after-
noon at the UM course.
"I playha lot of tennis, too. It is a great sport
to get in shape for hockey," he adds.
Like most other students at Michigan, DeBol likes
to party every now and then too. "During school
everybody goes out to the V-Bell, but during the
summer, I like to go to Fraser's Pub. That's where
the action is," he said in describing his social ac-
Deep down, though, Deebs is all hockey. But then,
how else could you be good enough that the pros
would trade four for two to get you.
