Sy nchro swim team hosts tourney

Lindeman
... leads synchro swimmers

By MATT HENEHAN
and LAURA CLARK
In the midst of one of the season's
most brutal cold spells, most students
find it necessary to bundle up in heavy
sweaters and coats. But one group of 16
girls will be donning its swimming suits
this weekend-the women's syn-
chronized swimming team, which
opens its season at 1 p.m. Saturday in a
figure invitational at Margaret Bell
Pool.
Coach Joyce Lindeman, who has
coached the team since 1973, will be
taking her 1982 team to the invitational
that will include approximately 45
competitors from Ohio State and
Illinois. The invitational is a "figures"
competition which differs from most
other regular season meets because the
swimmers are judged only by the per-
formance of a series of specific figures
without the musical accompaniment or
other creative touches by the swimmer
that make up a typical routine. Satur-
day's competition is a warm-up for the
Wolverines' coming season. In the wor-
ds of Lindeman this type of invitational
is "a good way to get started."
THE WOLVERINE team taking the
pool Saturday is young; underclassmen
outnumber upperclassmen 10 to six.
The team is comprised of six freshmen,

three sophomores, six juniors and one
senior. The untested younger swim-
mers will need to be balanced by the
experience of such seasoned com-
petitors as juniors Betsy Neira and
Cathy O'Brien, who make up the
squad's number-one duet team. Neira
and O'Brien have been competing
together as a duet since their freshman
year. They earned an eighth-place
finish in the National Team finals held
last November in Colorado Springs.
Erin O'Shaughnessy and Linda Pritz
are the team's second duet, and
although lacking the experience of their

older counterparts, are as Lindeman
puts it, "Right on Cathy and Betsy's
heels." The top Wolverine trio will con-
sist of O'Brien, Neira and
O'Shaughnessy.
The swimmer with the biggest shoes
to fill this season is sophomore soloist
Mary Beth Crumrine. Crumrine, who
swam in the top trio competition last
year, will be taking over the solo spot
vacated by the graduation of two-time
national team member Ruth Pickett.
ONE ADVANTAGE for the team this
year, according to Lindeman, is the in-

stallation of a new type of scoring
method introduced by the inter-
collegiate synchronized Rules Commit-
tee of which she is a member. Starting
this season a team's scores for the solo,
duet, trio and team event will be added
up and averaged within each division-
senior, junior and novice-then ranked
accordingly rather than allotting a
given number of points to the top seven
finishers in each event.
According to Lindeman the new rule
provides "a chance for a smaller school
without the 'big guns' to score points
and get publicity."

Lindeman describes a "very suc-
cessful" season as one in which the'
team competes in the national cham-
pionships and places in the top three
teams in the country. Last year's
Wolverines ' took third place in the
AIAW National meet behind Ohio State
University and the University of
Arizona, which won the contest. Beyond
rankings and point totals Lindeman
feels individual excellence combined
with the ability to work together toward
the same goals will be the key to a suc-
cessful season.

Special to the Daily
PONTIAC- A 70-year-old trick shot artist displaying a
complete repetoire of three foot underhand shots at halftime
received more applause than the Detroit Pistons, as
Washington easity defeated them, 121-114, last night at the
Silverdome.
A sparse crowd of 4,186 ventured out on a snowy evening to
watch Bullets rookie Jeff Ruland dominate the inside game
and lead Washington to its 16th victory against 19 defeats.
The Pistons, currently in fifth place in the Central Division,
fell to 15-22.
RULAND, A bulk of a rookie at 6-11, 240 pounds, got inside
on several Pistons, including Edgar Jones, Kent Benson and
Terry Tyler, enroute to 24 points and 15 rebounds.
"The weakness in this team shows vividly against clubs
like Washington and Boston," Pistons' coach Scotty Rober-
tson said. "The teams with big people inside hurt us. (We)
don't have the people to play them and we tried every com-
bination," Robertson continued.

In the Washington lockerroom the rookie gave his side of
the story. "If I get good position they usually get the ball to'
me down low and it is no problem to score."
Although Robertson was unable to stop the strong rookie
with the present crew of Pistons, the coach was looking to the
future. "Our number one priority in the draft is a big guy who
can play defense. If we can get two, we'll get two," he ex-
plained.
THE PISTON defeat overshadowed another fine perfor-
mance by Kelly Tripucka. The hustling rookie from Notre
Dame, in 45 minutes of action, nailed 13 of 25 from' the field,
seven of eight from the free throw line and grabbed nine
rebounds, for a total of 33 points.
"We can't lose to teams like that," said Tripucka. "Those
are the teams we're supposed to beat if we're going to go
anywhere."
Isiah Thomas, subdued even after hearing that Indiana had
just whipped Michigan, 81-51, finished with 18 points, 12
assists and seven turnovers. "We need to become more con-
sistent," the 20-year-old point guard understated.
Veteran guard Kevin Grevey scored 22 and former Oregon
Duck Greg Ballard had 24 for the winners.

Rockies move?
OTTAWA (AP) - The Colorado
Rockies moved closer to Canada's
capital city yesterday after the head of
the National Hockey League's expan-
sion committee gave a tentative OK to,
moving the franchise to the Ottaw i

area.
Nepean, a city of 80,000 on the south-
west border of Ottawa, has offered to
expand the 2,400 seat portion of its $5-
million sports center to the 15,000-seat
minimum demanded by the NHL before
a franchise transfer would be con-
sidered.
"I might be going out on a limb, but,
there is a 'good possibility we might
have a hockey club in the nation's cap-
ital this season," Franklin said.
. Gilbert said he would keep the
Rockies in Denver at least until the end
of the current season. But Franklin ad-
ded that he believed there was a better-
than-even chance x the struggling
Colorado franchise will be shifted here.

According to WJR Radio's Frank
Beckmann, Schembechler was offered
a $2.5 million, 10-year package to
become athletic director--and head
coach-of the Aggies.
Texas A&M interim Athletic Director
Wally Groff denied that Schembechler
was in line for the coaching spot,
however.
"WE'VE ALREADY got a coach
(Tom Wilson) and he's contracted for
one more year," said Groff. "The only
opening we have right now, is the AD
position."
The report of the Aggies' offer had
circulated all over Michigan and Texas
yesterday, breeding speculation that
Schembechler may abandon his title as
the dean of Big Ten coaches.
"There was an offer, and he is
seriously considering it," said
Detroit's WDIV-TV sportscaster Jim

Brandstatter.
"HE WILL receive a multi-million
dollar deal to become the coach and
athletic director at Texas A&M . . .
there is a 50-50 chance that he will
leave," said Brandstatter's colleague
at WDIV-Detroit, Al Ackerman.
"I knew of the offer around noon
today," said Groff, A&M's interim
athletic director. "It's up to the Search
Committee on the Board of Regents (at
Texas AM, and Mr. Bright runs
that."
Early yesterday evening, Bright said
he was not sure of Schembechler's sen-
timents about coming down to the Lone
Star State.
"WHEN HE ELECTS to give it (his
decision) to us, he will," Bright stated.
The Houston Post also reported that
Schembechler would meet with
University President Harold Shapiro
early this morning to discuss the offer

and described the meeting as the lone
stumbling block in Schembechler ac-
cepting any of the Texas A & M job.
Shapiro refused to comment late last
night.
SCHEMBECHLER'S present
salary is listed at $60,030, thus making
the 'Texas A&M offer a pretty sweet
deal. But Canham has gone on recur
in the past as saying he will do anything
he can to keep Bo in Ann Arbor.
Canham plucked Schembechler from
Miami of Ohio in 1969 to take over a
Wolverine team that, be ore'Schem
bechler'9 arrival, had only participated
in four bowl games: During his 13 years
at Michigan, Schembechler has com-
piled a 123-24-3 mark, highlighted by
nine bowl appearances.
His Wolverine :squads have ac-
cumulated nine Big Ten champion'
ships, two of them, one in 1971 and the
other in 1980, outright titles.
