By DOODUS
and THE ERNST
As the Michigan high school
basketball season draws to a
close, two cage wizards have
emerged from Hibernation to of-
fer tdibits, trivia and truths
about the four title showdowns
at Crisler Arena tomorrow.
In the Class A final, Brother
Rice, the 1974 state champions,
lock horns with the Vikings from
Lansing Everett - the top
ranked team in the state.
Coach Bill Norton's Warriors
are led by all-state guard Kevin
Smith. The three year starter
is a heads up ball player who is
very unselfish and has a fine
shooting touch.
Smith is a defensive standout
and could have the task of
hawking Everett All-American
Earvin Johnson on defense. The
6-11 Smith could pose problems
for the Vikings if he can get
Johnson in early foultrouble.
Named last week to the
Class A All-State team, the
6-8 Johnson could be the
"Magic" the Vikings will need
to knock off the rampaging
Warriors.
Johnson led his team to a 26-1
I regular season record with a 31
points per game scoring aver-
age. When he wasn't ripping op-
ponents with his shooting ability,
Johnson grabbed rebounds at a
17 per game clip with 121 assists
and 73 steals.
The Warriors rely on quick-
ness as they are a very small
team with the exception of 6-9
center , Tim Andree. The game
could very well come down to a
match-up between Smith and
Johnson, two Michigan recruits,

although Brother Rice appearst
to have more depth.
DOODUS: Brother Rice by
five. Smith's playmaking and
overall ability, along with a
strong effort from Rice's small
forwards should propel the War-
riors to their second state crown
in four years. Rice coach Nor-
ton 'expects' his team to win -
and when Norton talks, people
listen.
THE ERNST: Everett by six.
Rice might have depth, but the
Vikings have the scoring threat,
in-Johnson that will prove to be
the difference. No other playerE
in high school dominated ball
games like Johnson did, and to-
morrow will be no different.

BOAST WELL BALANCED TEAM:

Linksters beg

By GEOFFREY LARCOM
Who wants to miss out on a
good thing?
Not Michigan golf coach Bill
Newcomb, who feels that his
Wolverines have a good shot at
adding to this year's Big Ten
title collection.
A man who himself ranks as
one of the top amateurs in
Michigan, Newcomb knows what

he's talking about.
"I THINK WE HAVE an ex-
cellent chance of moving up in
the Big Ten," said Newcomb,
whose teams have finished
fourth in each of the last three
conference tournaments. "I feel
very confident that this will be
the best team at Michigan since
I've been coach."
Why the great optimism all
of a sudden, after having fin-

ished no better than third since
1968?
"In previous years there was
a large difference between our
first and sixth man," Newcomb
recalled. "This year that isn't
true. We've got eight guys with-
in a whisper of each other."
OVER SPRING BREAK the
linksters played in the Miami
Invitational where they finish-
ed eighth out of twenty teams,
the best showing of any north-
ern team.
Sophomore Jim Marshall led
the Blue putters with a 72-hole
total of 308. Close by at 3091
were juniors Doug Davis and
John Morgan, along with an-
other sophomore, Frank Sims.
Senior Captain Ken Walchuk
and junior Tim Van Tongeren
closed out the scoring with 310
and 317, respectively.
One of Walchuk's rounds was
particularly interesting.
HE FINISHED the first nine
holes with a 32, a whopping
four strokesaunder par despite
having bogeyed the ninth hole.
Walchuk then made a dis-
astrous eight on a par four hole,

yet still managed to finish at
one over par 73.
"Now that's talent," Newcomb
laughed.
"You can see how balanced
we are," said Newcomb "You
know you're consistent when
Rod Pafford, our best man in
the Big Ten last year (sixth),
doesn't even make our top six."
"THERE ARE NO superstars
on this team, nor are there any
tail draggers." he summarized.
Northern schools like Michi-
gan have a unique dilemma in
that their practice time is se-
verely limited by the weather.
TO COMBAT THIS, they have
been practicing inside in the
cramped basement of the Michi-
gan Golf Course Clubhouse.
"The purpose of indoor prac-
tice is simply to train the mus-
cles," said Newcomb. "Other
than that, there's little than can
be done. We've only had seven
rounds outside so far this year."
As a result, competing with
warm weather teams such as
Wake Forest and Georgia is dif-
ficult.

wise, we're as good as anyone,"
said assistant coach Jim Lipe.
"It's just that we haven't play-
ed as much."
Last year's runaway cham-
pion, Ohio State, figures to be
just as tough this spring.
"They've been building their
program for three years,"
agreed Newcomb. "In 1978,
when they host the nationals,
OSU wants to be ready. On any
given day however, I feel we
can play with them."
ROUNDING OUT the squad
are freshmen Kevin Crouch,
Mike Sullivan and Phil Mokris
along with junior Bruce Patter-
son.
"With the balance we've got,
each of these men will see ac-
tion," said Newcomb. "It'll be
tough deciding who to play each
time."
The golfers next competition
will be the Kepler Invitational,
on April 15-17 with the Big Ten
Meet May 14th in East Lansing.

est concertina player in

ances & recordings have
