Bill Frieder completed his first
season as Michigan's head basket-
ball coach with a 19-11 record. The
19 wins were the most ever for a
rookie Wolverine coach. Frieder
took the Wolverines to the National
Invitational Tournament, where for
the second consecutive year, they
were eliminated in the third round,
this time by eventual runner-up
Syracuse, 91-76.
He discussed the highs and lows
of this past season and plans for the
future with Daily Executive Sports
Editor Drew Sharp.
* * * *
DAILY: At the beginning of the
season you said that, realistically, a
good season for the team would be to
receive an NCAA tournament bid. In a
realistic sense, are you pleased with the
season results?
FRIEDER: Oh, yeah, it was a good
season. Of course, I was disappointed
because we didn't make the NCAA's
because in the middle of January, we
had done such a great job, and if we had
done a little better job down the stret-
ch, we would have made it. Of course,
thinking back to last fall, if someone
told me that I would win 19 games, I
would have settled for that in a second.
So I thought, all in all, that we had a
good season.
DAILY: Do you think that the main
reason for the team's six-game losing
skid was that it may have peaked too
soon into the season?
FRIEDER: I think that it was a com-
bination of things. First of all, I think
we got away from doing the things
which we did in the four straight vic-
tories against Northwestern, Wisconsin
twice, and Michigan State which gave
us the 7-3 conference record. It didn't
carry on to those following games.
Things like a little more ball control
and more possession. When we played
those bottom teams, we were able to
run the break better and get our shots
off quicker. We weren't able to do that
with the other clubs. And another
reason had to be the schedule. In that
losing streak, we had to play Indiana,,
Iowa, Illinois, and Michigan State on
the road, and that's going to be tough
for anybody, not just Michigan. Take a
look at the teams that faced Indiana in
the NCAA tournament. None of them
played as well as we did when we lost to
them in Bloomington, and if they had to
play in Iowa or Illinois two days after

that, they would've gotten their butts
beaten again.
DAILY: The type of competition was
the underlying factor in your team's
performance?
FRIEDER: Definitely. We had two
very good games in the losses to Iowa
and Illinois, but the fact that those
teams were just so good. I said before
that although we were seventh in the
league, we were still one of the top 40
teams in the country.
DAILY: Worthy of an NCAA bid?
FRIEDER: I think so but you know
that they (members of the NCAA Tour-
nament selection committee) are not
going to select seven Big Ten teams,
ark~W

six straight years (1975-1980) when the
top pro player drafted has come front
the Big Ten, and three of the last six
national champions have come from
this conference. So there's no doubt in
my mind that we're in the, best con-
ference.
DAILY: The Daily has learned that
freshman Tim McCormick is con-
sidering attending the sports medicine
clinic out in San Diego in regards to his
knees. Is the condition of his knees wor-
se than originally thought?
FRIEDER: No, his knees are not that
bad. They're better than they were at
the beginning of the season. Tim suffers
from "jumper's knee", an ailment that
afflicts all big men. (Bill) Walton and
(Bob) Lanier have it, also. Because of a
looseness in the tendons there, anytime
he jumps it causes some pain. He's
been on the weights since last summer
and his knees are strengthening, but it's
going to be a problem that he'll have to
play with. I haven't heard anythong
about a San Diego trip, but if he goes,
.fine. I don't think it's that big a
problem.
DAILY: Will the offense be geared
around McCormick next season?
FRIEDER: I don't know about that. I
think you have to shape your offense
around a balanced attack, especially in
this conference because we play such a
good defense that you can't center your
offense around one person. If they shut
him down, then you're in trouble. With
McGee here, you had to go with him
because he was so good. But with the
players we have now and our guard
situation next year, we are going to be a
much quicker team and will be able to
have a much more balanced attack.
DAILY: After having a better-than-
average recruiting season this year,
how would you rate your team at this
present time?
FRIEDER: Well, we are going to
have a sound player returning in Thad
Garner, an experienced player in Mc-
Cormick, a super freshman in guard
Eric Turner, and the rest of the players
are good. But you have to remember
that we will be a very young team.
DAILY: By losing four of five star-
ters to graduation, it would be natural
to expect that there will be intense
competition for starting spots.
Shouldn't this be beneficial to the team
next year?
FRIEDER: Most definitely it will
help. I have no idea who my starting
five will be right now, but I know I will
have my five hardest working players
out there on the court.

... most rookie wins
but if they legitimately choose the best
48 teams in the country, seven or eight
Big Ten teams would be included.
DAILY: Do you feel that the Big
Ten's past record in NCAA tournament
play is proof that the conference is the
best in the country for basketball?
FRIEDER: No questiop about that.
Since 1976, we've had the best post-
season record, and also the best non-
conference record of any conference in
the country. We've had more teams in
the Final Four than anyone since 1976.
By looking at the statistics, it is clear
that the Big Ten is the best. We've had

TORONTO (AP)-Milt Wilcox out-
dueled Dave Stieb for the second time
in five days and Alan Trammell
doubled home the only run Detroit
needed as the Tigers defeated the
Toronto Blue Jays, 2-0, last night.
Wilcox, who went 7 2-3 innings last
Saturday against Toronto, when the

Tigers beat Stieb, 6-2, scattered three
hits over 7 1-3 innings this time and
struck out six Blue Jays, but was
removed after issuing his seventh walk.
THE ONLY HITS off Wilcox were
singles by John Mayberry and Al
Woods and a double by Alfredo Griffin.
The Tigers raked Stieb for nine hits in

FANNY, that bawdy, sensuous heroine
of Erica Jong's latest bestseller, has
seduced readers as well as reviewers
from coast to coast.
The New York Times Book Review
calls FANNY "an explosion, a surge of
literary energy. Erica Jong has taken a
quantum leap beyond her earlier fic-
tions, FEAR OF FLYING and
HOW TO SAVE YOUR OWN LIFE... an
entertaining novel but also a novel of
ideas . . . a prodigious work of fiction."
The Philadelphia
Inquirer raves ...
"I laughed r1lCJ%
all the way
through... V
FANNY is 4
superb." And
the New York
News says
FANNY is "a god
humored romp
on the wild side
of life in early 18th-
century England. It's W

laced with satire, spiced with sex and
seasoned with authentic backgrounds
... a triumph for Jong."
Now this literary triumph and
erotic masterpiece by the bestselling
author of FEAR OF FLYING is available
in Plume paperback.
So if you've been dying to read
the rollicking adventures of Fanny
Hackabout-Jones, you no longer have
to resist the temptation.

seven innings.
The Tigers' first run came in the third
inning when Rick Peters tripled to right
center and Trammell followed with a
double down the left field line. In the
fourth, the Tigers loaded the bases with
nobody out, but came away with only
one run on Lou Whitaker's grounder.
The Blue Jays' biggest threat came in
the third. With one out, Griffin doubled
to the right field corner and Lloyd
Moseby walked. But Wilcox struck out
Otto Velez and got Mayberry on a fly
ball to center.
WITH THE WIN, the Tigers remain
in sole possession of first, place in the
American League East with a 5-1
record. In second place, a game-and-a-
half behind, is the New York Yankees,
followed by Baltimore and Boston, both
two games out.
The Tigers play Toronto again this af-
ternoon at 3:30.
