ORR, TEAM ELATED

r , .._

Cagers r
By SCOTT LEWIS
Symbolic of football's dominance over
basketball here, the release of the Asso-
ciated Press preseason basketball poll
Saturday was strongly overshadowed in
the minds of Michigan sports fans by the
gridiron victory over Ohio State.
In case you don't know by now, the
sports writers throughout the country have
awarded Coach Johnny Orr's team the
honoryof the number one rating in the
country.
THIS IS THE first time that an Orr-
coached team has made the number one
spot, and the first time since the bygone
era of the mid-sixties that a Michigan
team has hit the top at all during the
season.
The Michigan coach reacted with ec-
stacy about his team's lofty position in
the early poll.
"I certainly am pleased to be selected
number one," he said. "I just hope that
we can live up to the expectations and the
challenge.-
"I don't care what any of the other
coaches say. Every coach in the country
would like to be picked as number one.
That's what you're in coaching for," he
added.
RICKEY GREEN ECHOED the senti-
ments of the remainder of the squad con-
cer-ing the poll.
"I'm really glad we're number one. Ev-

eryone likes to be number one," he said.
"I think it helps you work harder. We've
just got to keep up our good attitude."
Although the ranking brings with it the
added incentive for every team to knock
you off, Orr doesn't mind the extra pres-
sure put on him as the coach.
"When you take the coaching job,
there's tremendous pressure on you to pro-
duce anyway," he said.

IN ADDITION TO the Associated Press
poll, the United Press International board
of coaches ranked the Wolverines second,
behind Marquette. Sports Illustrated, in
an issue not yet released, has also made
Michigan its choice to take it all, by rank-
ing them first.
"I think it is a tremendous tribute to
our team, and a terrific challenge, too,"
Orr concluded.
OVERALL, THE TEAM appears very
ready to take on Western Kentucky in the
season opener Saturday.
"Things are going great, and I'm really
excited to get into the season," said Green.
"I'm missing my Thanksgiving for West-
ern Kentucky, but it's worth it."
AS OF NOW, the lineup looks like this:
0 Guard: Green and Steve Grote will
start, with Dave Baxter seeing a lot of
action off the bench. Mark Lozier should
q-e some action, and don't be surnrised
if 6-6 Alan Hardy is in the backcourt once
in a while.

in polls
Forward: John Robinson and Tom
Staton are the most likely starters, and
Hardy and Joel Thompson will be their:
backups.
O Center: Phil Hubbard will start and
Tom Bergen will relieye him when need-
ed.
ORR HASN'T COMMITTED himself to
starting Staton as of yet, but he appears
to be leaning in that direction.
"We'll know our starting lineup by#
Wednesday. Overall, Staton has been do-
ing a lot of good things for us," he said.
Along with Michigan's rise in esteem in
the minds of writers and coaches through-
out the country, there has been, accord-
ingly, a tremendous rise in the amount
of tickets sold for basketball thus far.
THE TICKET OFFICE took season tic-
kets off the market last Friday, after the
fans gobbled up more than 12,000 season
passes. With the addition of individual-
game tickets, practically every Michigan
home game should be a complete sellout.
THE WHOLE basketball program, from
the players up to Orr, is very pleased with
the interest in basketball this year.
"Coaches around the country are amaz-
ed at the success of our basketball pro-
prrn." said Carr.
"Most football-oriented schools have
bnkethall programs that lag behind. They
consider it ama7ing that we've been able
to turn it around."
