With Halloween just a week away, everyone is
collecting a selection of spooky stories to tell at the
be4itching hour on October 30th in some dark, eerie
room. Add one to the list: the story of the reincar-
nation of the Michigan hockey team.
In the haunting halls of Yost Ice Arena, tonight the
Wolverines (1-1) face the Broncos of Western
Michigan. Saturday the teams travel to Kalamazoo.
Michigan will appear to be a totally changed and
reincarnated team from the one it was last weekend
against Bowling Green. Leading the list of changes is
tie loss of sophomore sensation Bruno Baseotto.
In last week's series, Baseotto totalled three points,
including a power play goal in Saturday night's 9-4
Wolverine romp. Replacing Baseotto in the starting
line will probbly be Roger Bourne, who notched one
assist last weekend.
Another phase of the reincarnation is the return of
olverine defensemen John Blum and Tim Manning
and right wing Jeff Mars, all seniors who had been
suspended for the Bowling Green series.
Blum teams up with Steven Richmond, who scored
the game-tying goal with 38 seconds left last Friday

night. Manning will be paired with Brian Lundberg.
A final change is in the coaching department. Head
coach Wilf Martin is doubtful for the series because of
the stomach problems that have plagued him of late,
and assistant coach John Giordano is likely to be
behind the bench throughout the set.
The Broncos are coming off a double-loss to
Wisconsin last weekend. "We were a little ragged
defensively," said Western Michigan coach Glen
Weller, "and some of their (Wisconsin's) goals were
the result of some glaring mistakes. But it's early in
the season, and we're bound to make mistakes."
Weller said that in preparing for Michigan his team
will work on its defensive coverage and offensive
penetration.
Leading the Bronco offense will be junior forwards
Bob Scurfield and Ross Fitzpatrick, who collected
five points each in the Wisconsin set.
Michigan, on the other hand, counts on a lot of
production from the Don Krussman, Gordie Ham-
pson, and Dennis May line, the Blue's top scoring line
4thus far.
Sophomore center Krussman, who received no

game-time in 1979-80, had an excellent first series,
scoring a goal and four assists.
Giordano is expecting a tough challenge from the
Broncos. "They are physically pretty tough," he
said. "They like to play the man and shoot the puck a
lot. They are an offensively-minded team."
When asked about the Wolverines' preparation,.
Giordano said that the Blue icers have concentrated
on their defensive zone.
The readdition of Blum and Manning gives the
defense an added spark. Manning, this year's team
captain, scored a Michigan record-breaking 51 points
last season as a defenseman. Blum, the alternate
team captain, scored 50 as a defenseman to finish one
behind.
Another key ingredient of the defense is the talent
of goalie Paul Fricker. Fricker collected 72 saves for
a .911 percentage last weekend.
While the reincarnated Michigan defense is tryiug
to give the Broncos a spine-tingling welcome tonight,
the transformed offense will attempt to put it all
together. But the ghost of Baseotto, in the form of a
weak offense, may come back to haunt the
Wolverines.

alk-on O'Reilly stands out as
bmodest addition to harrier attack

e(lipse

PHiUP GLASS

By JOHN KERR
In these days of gargantuan salaries
and even bigger egos, it is refreshing to
find an athlete who is truly a modest in-
dividual. Junior cross country runner
Bill O'Reilly qualifies as the above.
"I'm just in with the masses," is the
way O'Reilly des~cribes his status on the
squad even though he currently holds
down the number four position.
"I'FM PRETTY lucky," said O'Reilly.
"We have a tremendous team with lots
of depth. I don't feel secure in my place.
Personnally, I'd rank myself ninth."
However, O'Reilly's performance
this year has proven otherwise. In
Michigan's first race of the year, The

Springbank Road Race, O'Reilly placed
eighth overall and third on the team,
with a time of 20:22. At the Notre Dame
Invitational, his time of 24:35 was good
enough for 23rd overall and fourth on
the Wolverine squad. In last week's
dual meet against Michigan State,
O'Reilly placed sixth, outpacei only by
five Michigan teammates, with a time
of 32:40 over the 6.2 mile cov: se.
Ironically, O'Reilly did r.ot even plan
on attending Michigan, 'et alone run-
ning cross country, when he graduated
from Lakewood High School in
Lakewood, Ohio.
"I RAN IN HIGH school cross coun-
try and track," O'Reilly said, "but I
wasn't planning on running in college."
He enrolled in Florida Tech, a school
with no athletic program, to study
engineering. After one year down
south, O'Reilly decided he wanted to
transfer to another university. So last
year he packed up his bags and trekked
north to enroll at Michigan. It was then
that he decided to try out for the cross
country squad.
"I came here= primarily for the
school, butI. was aware of the cross
country program," O'Reilly said. "So I
pretty much just walked up and said,
'Here I am.' I didn't make the varsity,
but I ran with them and worked with
them."
CROSS COUNTRY coach Ron
Warhurst explained that when O'Reilly
tried out for the team last year, "he
didn't do too much. He was out of shape,

and he struggled."
But O'Reilly stuck with it and this
campaign earned his spot on the var-
sity.

"I was impressed with his (Warhur-
st's) coaching and the team," said
O'Reilly in explaining his reasons for
trying out and staying with the team. "I
was also impressed with the
organization of the program. I think
that there will be a Big Ten champion-
ship (for Michigan) this year, and I
would like to be a part of it.
