*Toledo soars into Crisler for NIT

I

Cagers' Corner

By MARK FISCHER
The Michigan cagers will have two
things going against them before the
action even begins in their second
round NIT game tonight at Crisler
Arena.
1) Toledo is just South of the Ohio-
michigan border, less than an hour
away from Ann Arbor.
2) University of Toledo fans love to go
watch their team play basketball.
These two factors add upto a sellout
crowd for tonight's Wolverine-Rocket
clash which will certainly not be 100
percent behind the Maize and Blue,
despite the fact that the game will be
played here in Ann Arbor. You see, UT
enthusiasts have been taking full ad-
vantage of the Michigan athletic depar-
tment's policy of selling NIT tickets on
a first-come, first-serve basis.

"THOSE PEOPLE CAME up in their
caravans and bought out 'all the
tickets," said Michigan coach Bill
Frieder , of the Toldeo backers.
"They're amazing."
At least they're amazing compared to
Wolverine fans, who filled only 7,200 of
the Arena's 13,609 seats for Thursday's
first round game against Duquesne,
which Michigan won in unexciting
fashion, 74-58.
Frieder said his team was "super
defensively" in that game, but the
Wolverines will need more than just
defense to get past Toledo.'
THE ROCKETS, WHO ended the
regular season at 18-8 and tied with
three other teams for the Mid-
American Conference title before
losing to eventual champion Ball State
in the league playoffs, are coming off
an impressive first round victory over

American University on Wednesday
night.
And lately Toledo hasn't- been any
more friendly to Michigan than they
were to American. The Rockets have
knocked off the Wolverines two out of
two times over the last few years, 67-64
last season and 91-84 in overtime in
1977-78.
But all that is history. Toledo is' not
the same team it was even a year ago,
for gone are the three senior starters
who led the Rockets to four consecutive
seasons of at least 21 wins apiece.
HARVEY KNUCKLES, however, is
back. The high-leaping 6-7 Rocket for-
ward led the MAC in scoring this year
and is a force Michigan must reckon
with tonight. Knuckles' only fellow
returning starter is 5-11 senior Jay
Lehman, a very experienced
playmaking guard.

But fortunately for the Rockets, the
younger members of the team have
stepped in and done the job.
Consequently, said Frieder, "Toledo
is an excellent team. We're -definitely
looking at this one very seriously.
"Now we have to play with as much
enthusiasm as\we had through the first
part of the year," added Frieder, whose
cagers have won only two of their last
nine games.

Assistant coach's job:
more than meets the eye

By RANDY BERGER
When considering some of the more thankless ways for an
individual to make a living, jobs such as janitor, nightwat-
chman, secretary, housewife, and tollbooth attendant im-
mediately come to mind. Another one can be added to the
list: that of assistant basketball coach.
"An assistant coach's job in basketball is a' very tough job
because they do a tremendous amount of work and they don't
get credit," said Bill Frieder, who performed that chore at
Michigan under Johnny Orr before becoming head man last
spring.
"prTheir job is to do everything they possibly can to make
sure that the program stays a good one."
SOME OF THE MYRIAD duties of a Michigan assistant
coach include recruiting, scouting, game preparation, coun-
seling, and co-directing summer basketball camp. All of this
work easily keeps the two full-time Wolverine assistants, Don
Sicko and Mike Boyd, and the part-time assistant, Tom
Kempf, busy through the year. However, an NCAA ruling
that went into effect last August allows a team to employ only
two full-time assistants. Thus, only Sicko and Boyd recruit
for the Maize and Blue.
"I don't like the rule because I had been recruiting the last
three years," said Kempf. "It is bad for part-time assistants
because in college you need to make a name for yourself, and
the way you progress is by recruiting and meeting the other
assistant coaches."
Because he cannot recruit, Kempf assumes most of the of-
fice chores, such as answering mail, watching films, and
taking care of travel arrangements.
"I watch two or three hours of films after practice, and'
during the day I answer mail," stated Kempf. "One good
thing, though, about being an assistant is that you don't get
any hate mail like the head coach."
BY MID-SEPTEMBER Kempf completes arrangements
for bus trips, flights and hotel accomodations. "We just try to
get the nicest hotel we can get. At times we are a little super-
stitious. For instance, at Indiana we haven't stayed at the
same hotel once because we haven't won there.

The coaches learn about-potential recruits mainly through
summer camps, newspapers, and scouting services. The
Michigan coaches usually confine their area of recruiting to
the Midwest, according to Sicko.
"THE FIRST THING we try to do is get into the player's
home and have a conference with his parents," he explained.
'We then try to persuade them to come to campus."
Although Sicko has the opportunity to observe a lot of top
high school talent in action, he will be the first to attest that
recruiting isn't all glamour.
"The worst part is that you have a lot of wasted time. The
game may only last an hour and 45 minutes, but you can
spend a whole day trying to get to that game."
Boyd and Sicko seldom travel together, so while one is out
on the road, the other is usually working with the team and
preparing it for the upcoming games. In practicing for a
game on Thursday, the coaches go over personal match-ups
and begin looking at films on Sunday. An assistant only sees
one of its upcoming opponent's games in person, but with the
help of videotapes the coaches can study a team over and
over again.
"IN PRACTICE WE have a scout team, which is the
second five, and they run the plays of the opponents so.our
first team can learn how to defend against it," said Boyd.
Another important function of the assistant coach which of-
ten goes unheralded is that of counseling the players. "The
players come in, and we try to help them with their personal
and academic problems," Boyd said.
While the assistant is occupied with his many daily duties
he almost always has the thought of someday becoming a
head coach stuck in the back of his mind. In a field in which
there are so many assistant coaches vying for so few head
coaching spots, it can be very frustrating.
"THIS SPRING THERE are ten jobs at major colleges that
have opened up in the last two weeks, and you can be sure
that every assistant coach knows about them," said Kempf.
Although assistants are always on the lookout for head
coaching positions, they have to be careful not to just take
anything that comes along. "I don't want to go to a place

PRINCETON - Joe McFarland and
Pat McKay won their last matches of
the season last night to place in the
NCAA Wrestling Championships. Mc-
Farland placed sixthin the tournament,
while McKay placed eighth, and both
garnered All-American status for their
respective performances. Michigan's
other entrant, Eric Klasson, was pinned
while wrestling for eighth place inAthe
heavyweight division.
McFarland repeatedan earlier loss in
the tournament by defeating Chris
Wentz for sixth place. Wentz had
defeated McFarland in the quarter
finals.
McKAY, A 190-POUND senior,
lost to Henry Milligan of Princeton to
earn his placing. McKay suffered a first
round defeat in the tournament, but
came back to win the remainder of

regular season with a victory in a dual
meet at Indiana State University
yesterday. Michigan garnered 135.95
points, the highest team score ever in
Wolverine women's gymnastics
history, to ISU's 134.85.
Beckwith led the tumblers by taking
top honors in four events. She took first
in the all-around competition with a
score of 35.95, a new season and career
high for her.
BECKWITH ALSO finished first in
the vault with a tally of 8.9, the uneven
bars with 8.8, and the balance beam.
with 9.35. Her mark in the balance
beam was a new Wolverine team high.
"They proved to themselves that they
can do a good job at the regionals," said
coach Sheri Hyatt. The Wolverines go
on to compete at the MAIAW regional
championships in East Lansing next
weekend.

9.60. Other finalists for the Wolverines
were Kaufman in the rings, Hedlund on
the pommel horse, and Stanovich in the
vault. Michigan's team score of 266.80
was their highest mark of the year.
