Michigan coach Sheri Hyatt says she doesn't know what to
Oxpect when her women's gymnastics team opens its season
today against Central Michigan and Kent State in Kent, Ohio.
And she has good reason, because seven of the 15 team
members are freshmen, and of the four top all-arounders,
two are freshmen and two are sophomores.
WE REALLY don't know how they'll do in competition,"
Hyatt said, "But they're all good. We're really optimistic,
and kind of curious."
Leading the Wolverines will be returning sophomore Kathy
'Beekwith, who last year became the first Michigan gymnast
ever to qualify for the nationals, placing seventh all-around.
)eckwith collected the team's high score in every event as a
freshman, en route to capturing All-State and all-Big Ten
She is a real consistent performer," Hyatt said of Beck-
with. "She seems to hit at all the meets."

School, and Scully placed first last year in the Lake Erie AAU
"We need the pressure of a meet right now, to see how the
girls are going to do," Hyatt added.
But though the team is young, Hyatt said that she is glad
that this year's squad has some depth. Last year there were
only eight on the team, and one of the women was injured for
most of the season. This year's team has doubled in size, but
injuries still hurt the Wolverines,
"EVEN THOUGH we have team depth, some of our key
people are injured," Hyatt said. "At one point (in pre-
season) we had half the team in the training room."
But the Wolverines bring 12 women into today's meet, and
Hyatt emphasized that her top four all-arounders are all
Adding depth and needed experience to the squad will be
senior co-captains Cindy Shearon and Laurie Miesel.
Shearon's specialty is the vault, as she finished fifth last year
in the regionals, while Miesel shines on the balance beam,
but her strongest event is the uneven bars.
LOOKING AHEAD to the Big Ten season, Hyatt said that
she would just have to "wait and see." She said she would
like the team to peak slowly, getting better with each meet.
Hyatt said she didn't know what to
VAN SOCIETY expect from the other Big Ten schools,
but would have a better idea by
January when she has a chance to
check the scores.
Scores, she explained, are the most
important things in the meet. They are
what is counted, not the team's won-
loss record, when getting into nationals
is concerned. She was optimistic after
the team's 130 points performance at
the Wolverines' intra-squad meet on
November 18. Last year, the team
scored 118 at the intra-squad meet.
"It kind of gives you an indiction that
we're going to be good." On today's
ORMATION meet she once again emphasized the
importance of scoring, "Of course
we're looking to win, but the scores are
what's going to help (get to nationals)."

THE CAVALIERS have lost seven
straight and are 4-13 this season.
Stepien described as promising his
negotiations with former Atlanta
Hawks coach Hubie Brown to take over
the faltering Cavaliers.
"We're still just in the talking stages
with prospective coaching candidates,"
Stepien said. "I don't expect to make
any further announcements regarding
the coaching situation until the team
returns from Washington on Sunday.'

Craig to bargain
BOSTON (AP) - The last time
Olympic hero Jim Craig played a
regular season National Hockey
League game was 10 months ago. It
may have been his last as a Boston
The 24-year-old goalie, beset by in-
juries and faced with the prospect of
returning to the minor leagues when he
is healthy, has received permission
from the Bruins to talk with other NHL
teams, Bob Woolf, his agent, says.
"WE'LL TALK to a lot of clubs," said
Woolf. "And we're thankful that we've
been given the chance to do so. The
Bruins didn't have to do that.' .
In the past four months, Craig has
had a broken index finger and a broken
bone near his left ankle, for which he
still wears a walking cast.
"Nothing can happen until Jimmy is
OK," Woolf told the Boston Herald
American. "And look, if I had my
druthers, Jimmy would be in Boston
playing for the Bruins. But Jimmy
would like the opportunity to play. He
loves the Bruins, he loves being here.
But if the opportunity to play were to
come quicker elsewhere ..."-
CRAIG IS a former Boston Univer-
sity goalie and native of North Easton,
Mass., who starred for the 1980 U.S.
Olympic hockey team that won the gold
Bruins General Manager Harry Sin-
den has not released Craig, how con-
tract runs through next season, and
does not necessarily want to lose him.
"We've invested some time and
money in him, and I'm not anxious to
"THAT'S FINE with us," Sinden said
of Craig, who came to Boston June 2,
1980, from the former Atlanta Flames.
"We know we'd expect him to go back
to the minors Erie Blades of the
American Hockey League first, play in-
to shape and then come up. That's the
disparity, that's the difference. He
seems reluctant to go to Erie."
Boston's goalies, Rogie Vachon and
Marco Baron, both have been playing
Woolf, who replaced Bob Murray as
Craig's agent in October, said Sinden
would allow Craig to leave Boston im-
mediately if the other club could come
to an agreement on compensation.
SINDEN SAID he gives Bruins coach
Gerry Cheevers, a former Boston
goalie, a lot of freedom in the club's
"He Cheevers thinks Jimmy can
play," Sinden said. "We've told him
(Craig) that all along, that's been the
Bruins officials said it could be at
least three weeks before Craig's ankle
mends, and then Woolf will try to make
"That's all he wants, the chance,"
Woolf said. "And, if he can't do the
job, he'll be the first to say, I wasn't
good enough to play in the NHL.'"

Number 1 Tar Heels
CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) -
Freshman Michael Jordan scored 22
points last night to lead top-ranked Nor-
th Carolina to a 78-70 college basketball
victory over ninth-ranked Tulsa.
Jordan scored North Carolina's first
six points and finished with 10 in the fir-
st half. Along with James Worthy, he
led the Tar Heels out of two first-period
droughts to give them a comfortable
halftime cushion, 34-22.
BUT THE Hurricane, confused by
various Tar Heel defenses, turned a
runaway into a tight contest in the
closing seven minutes.
Sloppy ball handling and cold
shooting by North Carolina allowed the
Hurricane to tie the game 18-18 with
7:06 left in the first half.
But the Tar Heels responded with a
10-0 spurt of their own, the last baskjet
coming on a Jordan slam dunk.
