Hurons edge

'5M '

By BOB WOJNOWSKI
The inside tandem of Jeff Zatkoff and
Jack Brusewitz bruised its way to a
combined total of 38 points while
Eastern Michigan held off a furious
Michigan rally in the closing moments,
as the Hurons dumped the Wolverines,
67-65, in Michigan's home opener in
Crisler Arena last night.
Zatkoff scored 23 points and grabbed
10 rebounds for the Hurons, while
Brusewitz pumped in 15 points and
snared eight rebounds as the Hurons
blasted to a 55-35 lead with 9:14 to play
in the game. It was then that the
Wolverines, behind the outside shooting
of freshman Leslie Rockymore and the
inspired play of senior Thad Garner,
roared back.
A Joe James jumper with 6:59
remaining capped an 11-point Michigan
spurt and pulled the Wolverines to
within 55-46. Repeated EMU turnovers
and missed foul shots enabled Michigan
to chip away at the Huron lead, and
when Rockymore converted a layup
with two seconds left, the Wolverines
were within two points of the Hurons.

But Michigan was out of timeouts and
unable to stop the clock, and EMU had
its biggest victory in recent memory.
"It's probably the biggest win of my
career," said a pleased Huron head
coach Jim Boyce. "It will do wonders
for our program and gives us great
state, as well as national, exposure."
MICHIGAN DUG itself an early hole,
as the Wolverines shot an abysmal 28.5
percent in the first half, which ended
with the Hurons in front, 36-24.
"We set basketball back a long way in
the first half," said Michigan head
coach Bill Frieder. "And we were even
worse in the first 10 minutes of the
second half."
Frieder utilized his entire bench in
that first half, including Dave Hall and
Greg Washington, two members of the

rom field
Michigan football team. Captain
ner went out with his third foul
minutes into the game and
Wolverines trailing just 13-10.
Frieder refused to cite Garner's
difficulties as an explanation
Michigan's poor play.
"I THINK IT hurt us, but we
Thad back in the second half any
Cold as ice

67-65
still didn't play well," said Frieder.
"The way we played the first 30
minutes is inexcusable. Eastern out-
played us in every phase of the game."
Michigan shot an horrendous 34.8
percent for the game, with freshman
Eric Turner hitting just four of 16 shots
while scoring nine points and dishing
out three assists. James led the
Wolverines'in scoring 16 points, while
Gar- Rockymore added 13, on six-of-10
nine shooting. Ike Person collected 10
the rebounds to tie for game honors with
Bout
foul Eastern's Zatkoff.
forl The Hurons shot a respectable 53.5
for percent from the field, which was just
had enough to turn back the Wolverines and
d we send a crowd of 9,220 home disappoin-
ted.

Burton quits; hoop roster shifts

6 26 65

By MARK FISCHER
If the Michigan basketball team
roster had feelings, the changes it has
been through this week - there were
four, to be exact - would have turned it
into a nervous wreck by now.
The most staggering blow to the roster
came in the middle of last week when
sophomore M.C. Burton quit the team.
According to Michigan coach Bill
Frieder, the 6-6 forward made his
"final decision" after the Windsor
game of a week ago Monday.

"HE HAS DECIDED to give up
basketball," said Frieder, "for reasons
due to academic pressures, pressures
of the basketball team, and the
pressure of playing in his father's
shadow." Burton's father, M.C. II, was
a star performer for the Wolverine
cagers from 1957-59.
M.C. III has been out of town and
unavailable for comment, but Dr.Burton
said that he was planning to talk with
his son and with Frieder last night
concerning a statement to be made
sometime today on M.C. III's behalf,
Burton noted that his son's absence
from the team at last Saturday's
Arkansas game was definitely not due
to "disciplinary reasons", as Coach
Frieder was quoted as saying on the
day of the contest.
"HE (BURTON) HASN'T been
playing well since October 15 (the day
of Michigan's first official practice),"
said Frieder yesterday. "It's been on
his mind for a long while."
Frieder was riot happy to see Burton
go, but he is resigned to the loss. "He's
a super young man," said the coach.
"The team liked him, he liked the team.
The problem was one within himself
which goes beyond the team. ,
"Losing a player never helps, but
losing M.C. the way he was playing is
no loss. The way he had the potential
to play is a big loss."

THE SECOND STRIKE to the
Wolverine roster came when 7-2
sophomore center Jon Antonides suf-
fered a hemotoma of the scrotum in the
Arkansas game. The injury forced An-
tonides to undergo surgery Saturday in
Fayetteville, Ark, hospital, where he is
still recuperating.
The Sarnia, Ontario native will be lost
to the team for an estimated four to six
weeks, which compounds Michigan's
lack of height problems. Michigan
already misses the services of 6-11
sophomore Tim McCormick, who is
recovering from offseason knee
surgery.
"He (Antonides) will be missed
dearly," said Frieder. "We had two
seven-footers and we were counting on
them. Now we have to go with (6-7)
Ike (Person) with no real backup to
him.
HOWEVER, AS IF to offset the loss
of Burton and Antonides, the roster was
padded just prior to the Arkansas game
by two Michigan football players, Greg
Washington and Dave Hall.
Washington, a 6-3, 210 lb. freshman
from Detroit, was expected to go out for
the hoop squad from the beginning of
the year. Hall, a 6-4 sophomore from

Livonia, is a surprise but welcome ad-
dition to the cage roster.
"Hall's a great shooter," said
Frieder, "and Washington's just a big
stud out there. Now with the injuries
we've been having each of them will
help. They have to get in basketball
shape, but they're good athletes ...
They'll play about three to five minutes
at a time."
The two gridder-hoopsters will be
with the Blue cagers until December 21,
when they'll return temporarily to Bo
Schembechler and the football team for
the Bluebonnet Bowl.
"Bo's very cooperative," added
Frieder. "He knows the bind we're in
and he's been just super in providing
those players."
