McGee puts on show ..
...during boring gam es,'yBDYMOEOS
By BUDDY MOOREHOUSE
If you were one of the many Michigan cage fans who decided not to attend
the last two Wolverine routs over Akron and Kent State, you missed a great
show.
True, the games were one-sided and boring, but that wasn't the great
show. It was worth the price of admission in the last two games to see Mike
McGee. The senior sensastion added excitement to the two sleepers as he
tossed in 35 points against Akron on Monday, and notched 30 points on Wed-
nesday against the Golden Flashes. Those performances gave McGee 1,835
total points for his career and put him in second place on the all-time scoring
list, ahead of Rudy Tomjanovich.
If he keeps up his torrid pace, McGee should easily surpass the great Caz-
zie Russell's career total of 2,164 points.
McGee has always been a scoring
machine. In past years the Wolverine
offense consisted of passing the ball
around for a while until McGee got
open, at which time he would plop in a
20-footer with uncanny regularity. The
only problem was, McGee was a one,
dimensional player-all scoring and not
much else.
This year, though, McGee has
become much more of a well-rounded
player, a fact which poses problems for
any team facing Michigan. Against
Kent State, McGee took only one shot
from one outside-which he made-as
he accumulated the bulk of his point
total on breakaway layups and short-
McGee range jumpers. Being able to score
... number 2 'M' scorer almost at will from the inside has
Madded an entirely new dimension to McGee's offensive ability. While he
hasn't lost any of his outside shooting ability, McGee has added a potent in-
side game.
McGee's traditional weakness has been defense. Before the season began,
coach Bill Frieder said "One of my main objectives for this year is to get
Mike to play more consistent defense." So far, it would appear that Frieder
is succeeding. Against Kent State, McGee made four steals, all of which he
converted into easy baskets, and more importantly, he fouled out. It may
seem strange to view fouling out as a positive factor, but it shows that
McGee is working much harder on his defensive work.
McGee'seems happy with his performance thus far. "I've been shooting
pretty well from the floor, making some steals, and playing some good
defense," said the 6-5 Omaha native. "But I could be shooting better from
the free throw line." It seems characteristic of McGee this year to never be
fully satisfied with his game.
McGee also has shown none of the attitude problems which plague such
glamour collegiate hoopsters as DePaul's Mark Agguire, taking the opinion
that because the team can't win without him, he can act any way he pleases.
McGee works as hard as anyone in practice, and shows remarkable intensity
against weak teams which predictably could precipitate a mental letdown,
such as Akron or Kent State.
The remarkable improvement in McGee's play means that the Wolverines
will probably cruise through the rest of their pansy non-conference schedule
undefeated, continue to rise in the national polls, and then make a run at the -
Big Ten title, something not many people gave them a chance to do before
the season began. And although it won't be easy, if Frieder continues to im-
prove all other aspects of the team; a spot in the NCAA thurnament should
belong to the Wolverines.

Senior saluted'
To the Daily:
Monday evening (December 1) at the
Plaza Hotel we were most favorably
impressed by the sincerity of the thanks
from the seniors. After so much un-
pleasantness in the media about schools
where athletes don't get degrees (and
nobody cares), it is tremendous to hear
the importance Michigan athletes place

on education.
But outstanding of the group was the
testimony of Jim Breaugh. We could all
wish that you, Jim, could have had even
a minute in Michigan Stadium, but we
were highly impressed with this man
who emerged from the Michigan foot-
ball program.
All of us who heard Bo realize how
much credit he gave to the men who put
forth so much during practice but then
don't get on the field on Saturday. We
salute them and especially you, Jim,
for hanging in there through it all.
