Sicko named new
U-D cager coach

SPORTS OF THE DAILY

Netters triumph in Texas tourney

by BOB WOJNOWSKI
Michigan assistant basketball
coach Don Sicko was named head
coach at the University of Detroit
yesterday, replacing the fired Willie
Mclarter, who compiled a 33-48
record in three seasons at Detroit.
Detroit Athletic Director Brad Kin-
sman made the announcement at a
press conference at Calihan Hall.
Sicko, 34, became the top cqn-
didate for the post when Eastern
Michigan head coach Jim Boyce
withdrew his name from con-

sideration last week. The Wayne
State graduate spent 12 years
coaching in the high school ranks
and then held brief assistant
coaching positions at both U of D and
Kent State. Sicko was finishing off
his second year at Michgan.
"DETROIT'S program has been a
success in the past," said Sicko at
the' announcement. "There's no
reason to think it can't be done
again."
Well-respected for both his
teaching and recruiting abilities,
Sicko got a high recommendation for
the job from Michigan head coach
Bill Frieder.
"One of the biggest commitments
I have to my assistants is if they┬░
come here and work hard, then I'll
do everything I can to help them get
a better job," said Frieder.
"Don has come in here and done a
great job and it's a great opportunity
for him."
Frieder said-that he did not feel
Sicko's leaving would hurt
Michigan's recruiting this season,
but that finding a replacement
would be the big chore.
"It'll be a little while yet (before
someone is hired)," said Frieder.
"After our games this week we'll
finish up the recruiting and then
we'll get on it."

Wisconsin cans Co fPld
MILWAUKEE (AP) - A decision has
been made to fire Bill Cofield as
University of Wisconsin basketball
coach, the Milwaukee Journal said
today in a copyrighted story.
The newspaper said that, according to
several sources, Athletic Director
Elroy Hirsch was expected to tell
Cofield of his decision today and then
pass the recommendatior on to the
Wisconsin Athletic Board's 'personnel
committee, which will make its
recommendation to the full board
Friday.
The Journal said the leading can-
didate to replace Cofield is Rick
Majerus, an assistant coach at
Marquette University.
DePaul's Grubbs quits
CHICAGO (AP) - Junior. forward
Teddy Grubbs, once considered a
promising player for the No. 2-ranked
DePaul Blue Demons, has withdrawn
from school.
He said in a prepared statement that
he would probably be academically

ineligible to play next season, but he
"hopes to play basketball again for
DePaul."
The 6-8 Grubbs, who played in 17
games this season and averaged 6.7
points per game, has not been with the
team since Jan. 30.
Unless Grubbs goes to summer.
school, which he told the university is
unlikely, he will not meet NCAA
eligibility requirements for the 1982-83
season.
Worthy considers NBA
CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP)- Junior,
forward James Worthy will turn
professional after the college basket-,
ball season ends if the conditions are'
right, says North Carolina Coach Dean
Smith:
Smith says he talked with Worthy at*
the start of the season and that his 6-91
star wasn't expecting the conversatipfn.
But he added that once he mentioned
the subject, options were discussed.
"IF I KNEW for sure that James
would be the first player picked and by
a good team for'him, I would suggest he
go," Smith said.
NBA rules, instituted after the 1981
draft of college athletes, forbid a tearn
from talking with undergraduates until
those players have declared theni
selves eligible for the professional
draft.

... wins 6-0, 7-6

By KARL WHEATLEY
For the first time in 21 years, the In-
,diana Hoosiers will not be the defending
champions when the 1982 Big Ten
swimming championship . gets under-,
way today in Iowa City. Last year, the
Iowa Hawkeyes ended the Hoosiers' 20-
year reign as Big Ten swimmers ex-
traordinaire, but tie Indiana squad is
the favorite to take the title again this
year.
Besides having to deal. with the
Hoosiers, the Michigan Wolverines will
have to contend with the problem of the
lack of depth on their team. While there
are several members of the squad with
a shot at finishing in the top three, the
lack of depth, a problem, which has
worried head coach Gus Stager all
year, will prevent the Wolverines from
being able to challenge for the top team
spots.
THE HIGHEST finishers for Michigan
last year were Tom Ernsting and Ron
Merriott, both of whom daptured third
place finishes. Ernsting finished third
in the 100-yard breaststroke, while
Merriott, a two time NCAA All-
American, took third place on both the
one-meter and the three-meter boards.
Both Ernsting and Merriott are back
with the squad again this year, and both
are expected to do well at the Big Ten
meet.
The presence of Fernando Canales on
;he Wolverine squad, after being red-
shirted for a year, is one reason to
,believe that the Michigan tankers could
be more of a factor than they were last

year. The senior.free styler won seven
Big Ten titles, in the two seasons before
his being red-shirted last year and he
should play a major role in the free-
style.
ANOTHER Wolverine tanker who is a
strong bet for a Big Ten title is Bruce
Gemmell, the only junior letter winner
on the Michigan squad, is very strong in
both the 200-yard backstroke and in the
400-yard individual medly.
The junior tanker seems confident
about his chances, even though Iowa's
Tom Roemer, the defending Big Ten
champion in the 100-yard and 200-yard
backstroke events, as well as in the 200-
yard individual medly, will be there to
challenge him. "I think I'll be ex-
tremely competitive in the Big Ten's
for a championship," said Gemmell.
Last year, under coach Bill Farley,
the Wolverine squad wasn't even in the
title chase as it failed to win even one
event, and only managed 393 points for
a fourth place finish. The champion
Iowa squad garnered 710.5 points.
