Healthy hoopsters

show 'O' at premiere practice

By MARK FISCHER
The new skipper got his first chance
to look over the entire crew yesterday,
and promptly announced, "We couldn't
beat anybody yet."
It was one of the many one-liners that
fill Bill Frieder's repertoire of humor,
but the first-year Wolverine head coach
knows that there are plenty of hard
workouts down the road before
Michigan opens its season November 24
with an exhibition game against Win-
dsor.
THE WOLVERINES, under NCAA

Division I rules, officially opened prac-
tice yesterday; in other words, it
marked the first day the team could
practice -under the supervision of
Frieder and his three assistants.
Frieder said his team is relatively
free of injury, as the only ailments,
which belong to freshmen Tim McCor-
mick and M.C. Bqrton, are minor.
McCormick, the highly sought-after
6-10% center-forward from Clarkston,
suffered a slight groin pull and an in-
flammation of the hip a week ago
yesterday. But McCormick said the hip

"is just about 100 percent . . . it's
nothing at all to worry about."
McCORMICK played yesterday for
the first time since incurring his in-
juries, and ran every drill with the
team except wind sprints.
Burton, a 6-6 forward from Grand
Rapids, twisted his ankle in Tuesday's
practice, but his roommate, freshman
forward Dean Hopson, said Burton
would sit out only "a day or two" of

practice.
McCormick, Burton, and Hopson are
but three of the six new faces on the
Blue squad. The other three newcomers
are freshmen Jon Antonides and Dan
Pelekoudas, and first year assistant
coach Don Sicko (pronounced seeko).
Antonides, a center from Sarnia, On-
tario, and Pelekoudas, a playmaking
guard from suburban Chicago, are the
tall and the short of the team-7-2 and 5-

11, respectively.
FRIEDER EXPECTS his freshmen,
who hesaid "all did a nice job" yester-
day, to help the team. "It's hard to tell
this early," he said. "But I'll be disap-
pointed if they don't contribute."
Besides the new faces, Michigan
basketball will be sporting a new offen-
se this season.
"Our breakdown work (in practice)
today was geared to the new offense,"

said Frieder. "It's a little more
sophisticated than some of those we've
had in the past. We'll be able to read
defenses better, get free easier, and
we'll have a lot more options with it."
Also returning to practice yesterday
were seniors Mike McGee, co-captain
Paul Heuerman, Johnny Johnson,
Mark and Marty Bodnar, junior co-
captain Thad Garner, and sophomores
Joe James, Ike Person, and Leo Brown.

ASSEMBLY

MICHIGAN'S NEW HEAD coach, Bill
Frieder, gives instructions to high-
scoring senior Mike McGee during the

solid contribution from the incoming
freshmen, combined with improved.
play from the returning players and a
new offensive system, will help the
team become a definite threat for the
Big Ten title.

The intramural sports department
has a problem, but not a money
problem. Every year some teams con-
sistently "blow-out" their opponents.
But this year there is a new division,
called the Superstar Division, which
has been created to help prevent the
large number of blow-outs that occur in.
IM competition.
"We're trying to put some equity into
the system," explained Sandy Sanders,
Director of the Intramural Sports
Building.
Sanders stressed that the new
division is open to anyone who wishes to
compete in it. It is simply a higher level

of competition for those who feel they
are good enough.
The division was originally scheduled
to have competition in the major IM
sports-softball, football, and basket-
ball; the response to the new division
has been shaky, however. There were
only four teams which competed in the
Superstar Division in softball. Even so,
Moby Benedict, Supervisor of IM of
ficials, said that he thought it was a
success. "We only had four teams, but
those who competed enjoyed the high
level of competition.
The division didn't attract any teams
for football. Benedict claims that this is
because of the highly competitive
nature of the currently existing,
divisions-Residence Hall, Fraternity,;
and Independent.
Right now, it appears that the big
hope for success with the division lies in
basketball. Both Benedict and Sanders
believe that there will, be a large
response to the Superstar Division in
basketball because of the high caliber
of competition in the sport.
The league is on shaky ground at the
IM department, however. Sandy San-
ders said that he did not like the idea of
the division because "It doesn't fit my
idea of Intramural Sports." He added,
however, that he would go along with
the idea if it was what people wanted.
The division is struggling now, but
the department still hopes that it will
catch on, so, if you think you've got a
team that can take on the best in IM
sports, the new Superstar Division is
for you.
