OFFICIA LS TOURNEY THIS WEEKEND
'Best of the rest' meet at IM
BY GREG DEGULIS
If you think that all of the quality college basketball has
nexhausted for 1980, think again! This weekend the Old
IM Building will be the site as the best intramural basketball
teams from four colleges gather for the University of
Michigan Official s Open Tournament. All that is required is
about eight able players, a $30 entry fee and courage to Leet
the best of the intramural hoopsters.
Teams from Central Michigan, University of Detroit,
Michigan, and possibly Notre Dame will battle in a single
elimination format to decide where the premier intramural
basketball is played.
Competition begins 8 a.m. Saturday morning at the Old
Sd, commencing a full day of intense roundball action
culminating with the quarterfinals at 7 p.m., and semi-finals
at 9. The finals of the tourney will be Sunday afternoon at
12:30 when a 'champion of Michigan intramurals' will be
Dennis Carter, one of the officials organizing the tourney
explains the reasons behind it. "We plan on having this tour-
nament every March. We feel that officiating high quality
games will benefit the officials at Michigan." Many of the
Michigan officials, the sponsors of this weekend's tour-
nament, referee high school and junior high games, in ad-
dition to intramurals.

weekend's experience, as director of IM officials Moby
Benedict explains. "We want to put on a quality tournament.
We feel that the players will enjoy competing against out-of-
town people for a change. They'll see a different brand of
The varied style of play Benedict referred to especially
applies to the team from Central Michigan. According to IM
official Bill Gregg, "CMU has no player over six feet and
they have the discipline which few intramural teams have -
they will go into a four-corners offense if they are up by six
Another strong entry from out of town is an all-star in-
tramural contingent from Detroit. Notre Dame, with a few
former football players in graduate school at Michigan, plans
to enter a team before Saturday.I
If the officials strived for the outstanding IM teams from
the natives in Ann Arbor, a quick glance at the draw confirms
the quality. Representing the ,independent bracket from
Michigan are defending IM champions White Shadows, semi-
finalist Curly Whites, the Steve Grote led Knicks, the
F.U.B.A.R.'s, Kelly's Bar and Grill, Mexican Connection,
Trash, Fupped Ducks and Master Jam.
The two best fraternity teams, Alpha Phi Alpha and
Kappa Alpha Psi entered teams, as well as the premier dorm
squad from Rumsey House. Representing the cerebral con-
tingent of the graduate division are MBA Green and
So, come on down and see the 'best of the non-varsity'
compete on Saturday and Sunday. Who knows, maybe Bill
Frieder will attend on a recruiting trip and find the guard
he's been searching for. '
Gary Moeller, Lloyd Carr, and Tim
Davis were officially named as new
members of the Michigan football
coaching staff Wednesday. The three
were approved by the Board in Control
of Intercollegiate Athletics.
The Daily reported Coach Bo Schem-
bechler's appointment of the new
coaches last Saturday. Schembechler
has now completed the selection of new
staff to fill vacancies created by the
departures of Don Nehlen and Dennis
Brown to West Virginia, and Jack Har-
baugh to Stanford.
Moeller, who was Schembechler's
defensive coordinator until he took the
Illinois head coaching job in 1977, will
coach the Wolverine quarterbacks,
replacing Brown. Moeller captained the
1962 Big Ten champion Ohio State team
and served as an assistant to Schem-
bechler at Miami (Ohio).
Carr, who assisted Moeller on the
Illini staff, succeeds Harbaugh as
defensive backfield coach. Carr was the
head coach at John Glenn High School
in Westland and an assistant at Eastern
Michigan before moving on to Cham-
Davis, an All-big Ten selection at
middle guard in 1975 and a second-team
All-American that same year, will
coach defensive linemen. Davis served
as a graduate assistant at Michigan for
two seasons before joining another
former Michigan assistant, Tom Reed,
"Carr and Davis are two of the finest
young coaches in the country, and in
getting Gary Moeller back, we have
added a great coach and a tremendous
guy to our staff," said Schembechler.

Neuters bounce to Wichita State
By MIKE WERNER
The Michigan men's tennis team, un-
defeated in dual meets this year, flies to
Kansas to battle the Wichita State
The Shockers are led by Mark Mc-
Mahon, the 15th best singles player in
the country last year according to the
national rankings. But, as Shocker
coach Rex Coad says, "We're solid all
the way down theline."
"N I~atinl (IIi Bell Pool
Although most people are not
familiar with synchronized swimming,.
they are aware of National champion-
ships and what it means to a team.
Friday and Saturday, the Michigan
swimmers host 13 teams nationwide,
for the AIAW National Championships
at Margaret Bell pool.
With high caliber competition
available at such a close proximity, it is
a perfect opportunity for people to see
that synchronized swimming is not the
"pansy" sport it is often thought to be.
The Michigan swimmers have been
working towards peaking at the
Nationals. Coach Joyde Lindeman said,
"I hope we're strong. We've been
tapering for this meet. I expect a fine
job from our girls."
THE SWIMMERS' goal is to defeat,
defending champions, Ohio State's B
team. "We've been working towards
beating the OSU team. It's our goal and
if we do so, it's a good thing," said Lin-
Besides Ohio St., Michigan and
Arizona are top contenders for the
crown. Last season, Ohio, Arizona, and
Michigan placed one, two and three in
the Nationals in Albany, N.Y. This
time, however, the swimmers are
looking forward for a reversed order.
OSU and Arizona met two weeks
earlier in an Invitational which resulted
in a tie, so a change in order looks
somewhat promising. Lindeman said,
"Depending on what we (Michigan) do
will be a deciding factor. It really is up
Figure competition begins Friday at
9 a.m. with finals in solo and duet slated
for Saturday at 2 p.m. Trio and team
events are scheduled for the Saturday
session at 7:30 p.m.

CAPE CORAL, Fla. - In its first
competitive effort of the season, the
Michigan men's golf team found itself
running in the middle of the pack after
the completion of two rounds in the
Cape Coral Intercollegiate Invitational.
COAD IS expecting an afternoon of
rigorous matches. While his team is 10-
5 this season, the Wolverines are
anked 10th nationally. "We haven't
seen Michigan play this year," the
Wichita St. mentor claimed, "but no
team gets ranked 10th if they're not
When assessing his team's chances
against the highly touted Blue squad,
Coad is not bashful. "There's no doubt
it will be a close match," he confidently
states, "but we have the potential and if
we play well, we'll win.".
Brian Eisner, the Michigan men's
sach, will continue to alternate the
number one singles title between
sophomore Michal Leach and junior
Matt Horwitch. Both players have been
breezing through the initial segment of
the regular season without losing a set.
Wichita State should provide better
Competition for the Wolverines.

The Wolverines totaled 593 after 72
ho6s. John Morse averaged even par,
144 (73-71) to lead the Blue linksters.
Steve Maddalena was three strokes
back at 147 (76-71), but the Jackson
native highlighted his performance
with a hole-in-one. Ed Humenik (77-77-
154) and team captain Tom Pursel (77-
77-154) rounded out the top four scorers.
