Poles dance past Blue, 9-2
By BOB EMORY Bowling Green on the day of the game,
Michigan tightened un its act effective at times."hnor uv

Last night's hockey game between
the Polish Olympic team and Michigan.
goes down in the books as an exhibiti'on,
and that's exactly what it was-an
exhibition of European hockey at close
to its finest for the 2,000 fans that
showed up at Yost Arena.
The Polish skaters are smaller but
decidedly quicker than the Wolverines
and they skated, passed, shot and
literally waltzed their way to a 9-2
victory. It was the same team that lost
to Bowling Green Tuesday, 5-4, but it
would have been hard to convince
anyone of that fact after last, night's
"NO WAY, THAT wasn't the same
team," said Wolverine coach Dan
Farrell, who saw the Bowling Green
game. "I guess they must have been
suffering from jet lag. They displayed
some skills that didn't show in last
night's game: They were a lot quicker,
their execution was better, their passes
... the Europeans just play at a much
higher skill level."
The Polish team had flown into

and the Falcons took advantage of the
"jet lag" by scoring twice early in the
contest to establish momentum and
win. Last night, however, it was the
Polish that scored early, twice in the
first three minutes and then two more
to take a 4-0 first period lead.
Setting the tone for the game, Henryk
Pytel took a crisp pass from Andrzej as
he went flying through the Michigan
defense and all alone on Paul Fricker,
beating him with a slap shot to his glove
side. Bogdan Dziubikski followed that
up by slapping a perfect centering pass
in the time it takes to blink an eye into
the upper corner.
THE WOLVERINES looked like they
might.be able to get back in the game.
when Stefan Chowaniec was whistled
off for hooking at 5:40 of the opening
period. But the Polish seemingly used
that as an excuse for more room with
which to pass the Wolverines crazy.
Andrzej Zabawa-who scored four
goals in the game-bagged the short
handed goal by taking a rink long pass
up the middle and going in untouched.

considerably for the last two periods,
and if it wasn't for some swift saves
from goaltender Pawel Lukaszka, the
score would have been closer. Doug
Todd scored the first of his two goals in
the second period only 1:24 after it
began. Actually, his second goal wasn't
really a goal-he, batted a floundering
puck in with his glove-but the referees
didh't see it.
The Polish scored three times against
Bob Sutton, who minded the nets in the
second period, and then added two
more in the third against Rudy Varvari.
FARRELL USED a four man
defensive front at his blueline in an
effort to prevent the Polish from
mounting strong attacks,' and it was

would stay in position, it worked," he
said. "But we were mesmerized by the
speed with which they passed the puck
and we'd go chasing after them. Once
we left one of the spots open, they would
flood it with another forward and the
puck would be there."
AS FOR HIS own team's
performance, Farrell was nonplussed.
"Not good, not bad," he said. "You'd be
frustrated if you took the score
seriously, the way they move the puck.
"We tried a few new things. Some
worked and some didn't."
After properly recovering from the
cross-continent plane flight, the Polish
skaters tried all of their things, and all
of them worked.

Today's Ohio State game means a
lot to every Michigan basketball fan,
player and coach. But to freshman
forward-guard Joe James it means
much more than that. To James, this
is THE game.
"I want to play a lot because I'm
from Ohio," said the Youngstown
native. "And when I made up my
mind to come to Michigan instead of
going to Ohio State it kind of made
everyone back in Ohio against me."
JAMES ADDED, "I want to play
well and I want to win. Beating them
the first time was great. If we win
the second game (today's) I'll feel
really great going home this sum-
The 6-4 James, who was Ohio's AA
Player of the Year with Rayen High,
School, finally broke into the
Michigan basketball line last week
when he started in both the
Wolverine wins over Wisconsin and
Northwestern - something he
probably would not have been able
to accomplish in the talent-laden,
but slumping, Buckeye starting five.
James had been suffering early in
the year from nervousness and a
lack of confidence ini the games, but
both Coach Johnny Orr and James
say that the confidence has arrived
and most of the nervousness has left.
ORR SAID, "He's getting better.
He's a little nervous still, but he's
getting more and more confidence. I
expect him to just bust loose and
really play.. . I think it's just a
question of relaxing and letting
things happen, and when he does
he'll be super."
Orr explained that he finally
decided to put James in the starting
lineup because he felt it would help
his confidence and he was just doing


an outstanding job in practice.
"I feel it's a big step for me,"
James said about getting a spot in
the top five. "It helps me get my
confidence for playing big time
basketball. It helps me get over
some of that nervousness I had at
the beginning of the year.
"I THINK I'm improved a lot
more since the beginning of the
season because I've been getting a
lot of playing time," James said.
The fourth team Parade high
school All-American, with an
amazing 38-inch vertical jump, said
it wasn't the big crowds which were
the cause of his early nervousness.

When she was ten years old, Julie
Bachman would dive while her father
watched and read a Red Cross diving
book. Julie has improved greatly over
the years, illustrated by her All-
American status.
Bachman came to Michigan to dive
under the perceptive eyes of Coach
Dick Kimball. "Coach Kimball had a
summer diving camp in Florida," said
the junior from Mobile, Alabama, "and
I went there every summer for three
years. He's the main reason I decided
to go to Michigan."
Like most United States citizens,
Bachman has strong beliefs about the
Olympic issue. President Carter
doesn't want American athletes com-
peting in Moscow this summer. This.
Olympic hopeful, however, feels dif-
ferently. "The government doesn't
have the right to tell us we can't com-
pete because they don't subsidize us
with money. We (the athletes) are
being used as scapegoats."
Preparing and qualifying for the
Olympics is no easy feat. In order to
qualify, a diver must finish in the top
eight positions in the three- or ten-
meter diving competitions. These
meets are spon..ored by the Amateur
Athletic Union and are held twice an-
nually during the years between the
Olympics. N
If successful, the diver has qualified
for the Olympic Trials to be held in
June of the Olympic year. The top three
divers in both the three- and ten-meter
events qualify for the Olympic Games.
With all this work ahead of her, it is
easy to see why Bachman is concerned
about the future of the Olympics.
Simply training for a regular season
dual meet takes a tremendous amount
of time and effort. Starting in Septem-

'ber, the divers practice about three
hours a day, one-and-a-half hour
sessions in the morning and afternoon.
"I'm sure I'm missing some things,"
admits Bachman, "but I do have time
to study."
According to Bachman, however,
practice is both necessary and impor-
tant because it achieves two main
goals. During practice, a diver "learns
how to make adjustments in their dives
in the air." Through repetition, a diver
also "learns their dive so well that it
becomes automatic."
Despite her dedication, Bachman
does not intend to spend her whole life
at the pool "After I graduate, I want to
get away from. swimming, have fun and
maybe travel."
In addition, Bachman does not want
to coach other divers.-"Coaching takes
practice," she said, "I know how it feels
when I dive well, but I wouldn't be able
to communicate my knowledge."
When Bachman approaches the
board during a meet, the adrenaline,
which starts flowing early in the day, is
moving at full force. According to
Bachman, she must "concentrate on
staying calm" in order to succeed.
"The ability to control your excitement
and nerves is the secret to successful
competition." Bachman adds, "When
you're on the board and battling your
and the
Changed for the Better !

nerves, you're glad you practiced the
dive so much."
Right now, Bachman is a junior and
an All-American with one year of
eligibility left. She would love nothing
more than to qualify for, and compete
in the Olympics in Moscow this sum-
mer. If alternate games are arranged,
Bachman says she's "all for them" and
will gladly participate. If this does not
occur, however, Bachman will spend
the rest of her college career as an All-
American and afterwards probably
leave the diving board for the first time
since she was ten.

... homecoming
"It was the level of basketball being
played. There's so much emphasis
on winning and losing," said James.
There's also more emphasis on
defense. James, who was not exactly
known for his defense when he came
out of high school scoring 23.3 ppg
while collecting 15.6 rebounds a con-
test, has been working hard on
defense all year. As Orr put it so
ably, "He's had to guard (Mike)
McGee for a whole year, so he's had
to learn some things."
