The Michigan hockey team, with new head coach
Wilf Martin, begins its quest, to shake its newborn
negative image when it opens its 1980-81 season
tonight at Bowling Green in the first of a home-and-
Seasonal play for the icers begins in the wake of
great controversy stirred up by Sunday night's
hazing of a freshman player. The hazing received
considerable media attention and undisclosed
disciplinary action by the athletic department.
The incident has also disrupted practices all week,
which could have an effect on the hockey team's
sharpness in the opener. It could also spark the team
into playing an inspired contest in hopes of silencing
critics of the program and the team's methods.
Michigan carries a "let's just get down to playing
hockey" attitude into the game and will try to keep
ntact their perfect 11-0 record against the Falcons.
Martin, who has added to the problems surroun-
ding the team by missing most of the pre-season
practices with a stomach ailment, will count on his
defense to be the strong point.
Western Collegiate Hockey Association rookie-of-
the-year and 1979-80 Michigan MVP goalie Paul
Fricker leads the way fpr Martin's defense. Senior
captain Tim Manning, who set a Michigan record for
defensemen with 51 points last season, will also
spearhead the defensive corps.
Senior John Blum, who fell just short of Manning
with 50 points last year will also toe the blueline,
along with senior Mark Perry, who has junior
eligibility, and juniors Steve Richmond, Brian Lun-
dberg, Paul Brandrup and Dave Richter.
"We're going to try to play tough team defense,"
said assistant coach John Giordano, who also added
that defense was what the team had basically concen-
trated on in practice and would try to concentrate on,
the whole season long.
Michigan's offense will be suffering from the losses
of their two top scorers from last year, All-American
Murray Eaves (3649-85) and center Dan Lerg (37-39-
76). Third leading scorer sophomore Bruno Baseotto
is left to pick up the slack along with sophomore Brad
Tippett. Up front, Martin will have experience in
seniors Gordie Hampson, Jeff Mars,, and Roger
Bowling Green coach Jerry York is optimistic
about his team's chances against Michigan's tough
defense. "Our strength is in our skating. It is much
improved from last year."
York, whose Falcons finished with a 16-20-2 mark in
1979-80, will be counting on junior wing George Mc-
Phee, who led the Falcons last year in scoring with 45
points and as a freshman had a hand in 88 points.
Joining him is sophomore center Brian Hills,' who
scored 40 points for Bowling Green last season.
York said of the series, "We're looking forward to
breaking the jinx.

Special to the Daily
PONTIAC-George Gervin scored
two of his team high 26 points on a
layup with 11 seconds left to lead the
San Antonio Spurs to a 102-99 victory
over the still winless Detroit Pistons
last night at the Silverdome. The loss
stretches the Pistons' futility streak to
19 straight games carrying over from
But the 0-5 Pistons did not go down
without a fight as they rallied back
from a 81-61 deficit at the beginning of
the fourth quarter. They took a 97-96
lead with 1:47 remaining on two Greg
Kelser free throws, but Johnny Moore
connected on a driving layup and
James Silas sank two free throws to put
the Spurs ahead to stay
at the 1:10
KELSER, who scored 16 of his game
high 28 points in the final quarter, put in
a short baseline jumper to cut San An-
tonio margin to one. That set the stage
for the "Iceman" Gervin's heroics, as
he put the game on ice for good.
Playing against San Antonio's reser-
ves, the Pistons battled back to trim the
lead to 35-34 with seven minutes
remaining in the half. But then Gervin,
who had been taking a breather on the
sidelines, went back to work and led a
charge which saw him score on a
hanging baseline scoop shot and two
jumpers, enabling the visitors from
Texas to go to the locker room with a 54-
48 halftime advantage.

KANSAS CITY (AP)-Kansas City
Royals third baseman George Brett
rested in a hospital following
hemorrhoid surgery yesterday, and his
.doctors said there was "a pretty good
chance" he would play in tonight's
critical third game of the World Series.
Phbysicians said Brett, the key to
Kansas City's offensive punch, would
be released from the hospital this after-
noon and would have to determine for
hiniself whether he felt like playing
Dr. Paul Meyer, the team physician,
said'the 20-minute surgical process to
lance the hemorrhoid would Felieve "a
lot of the pain" that has dogged Brett
nce the condition was detected Satur-
Meyer described the operation by
proctologist Dr. John Heryer as
'routine for this type of surgery.
The hemorrhoid had hobbled the
Kansas City star as the Royals dropped
the first two World Series games to the
Meyer said Brett would be kept in
seclusion and off his feet yesterday.
Meyer said that the prognosis for
Brett was "good," adding "Dr. Heryer
and myself feel there's a pretty good
chance he'll play Friday night."

Brett flirted with a .400 season before
finishing with a league-leading .390, the
best in the majors since 1941. He lashed
