Disappointing cager season. . .
-52 OS to ..n ta 0ota loss
UNDAY'S 3-2OStoNotre Dame was a fitting finish to the 1981-82
~edition of the Michigan basketball squiad-something went wrong.
In the final seconds of the contest, Michigan had the ball, down by one
*point. Since it had twofouls to give before reaching the bonus, Notre Dame's
strategy was simple: foul whoever had the ball for the Wolverines so as to
keep them fromn getting of f a shot on this trip doWncourt.
And itj worked. With six seconds remaining, Notre Dame's John Paxson
pushed Eric Turnter out of bounds. Michigan got the ball back, but Ike Per-
son's shot' at the buzzer came up short. After the game, Turner would say
that Paxson had intentionally fouled him. Bu} the ref didn't see it tha't way.
No foul was called, and the ball was given to Notre Dame on the questionably
called Michigan turnover.
The call should not have surprised the Wolverines, however. They should
have been used to bad breaks going againist them. After all, everything that
could possibly have gone wrong this season has gne wrong for Michigan. ,
Compounding the loss of four starters from last season's team were the
sason-long injuries of the Wolverines' two tallest players. When MC. Bur-
tnand Joe James quit the team, things really looked bad. Furthermore, the
cagets had more than their fair share of difficulties on the road where tran-
sportation miscues were numerous and a bout with food poisoning awaited
them.
The result of these problems was the first 20-loss year at Michigan since
the 1959-1960 season. Taking all of these misfortunes into consideration, one
question comes to mind.
Why are the Wolverines smiling?
After the disheartening loss against Notre Dame to end a disheartening
season, it was only logical to assume that there would be a disheartened
group of players in the Michigan lockerroom after the game. Nothing could
have been further from the truth.
Start next season now
WithoUt exception, the, players who will return next season expressed a
desire to start the 1982-1983 season right now.
"As a team we've improved," said freshman Eric Turner after the game.
"I know that I've imrproved in every phase of the game. We all hate to see it
end since we were just putting it together. We're looking forward to next
season."
"The season may have ended today, but I'm ready to start again already,"
said Willis Carter.
But the positive aspects of this season go beyond the Wolverines' improved
play. Equally as important, Michigan has set a solid foundation for the
future. For starters, the Wolverines have had an outstanding year recruiting
since this year's prep standouts 'see the down Michigan program as one
where they can get immediate playing time.
In addition, the program will benefit from the playing time seen by this
year's freshmen. "The playing time has helped me a lot," said Carter, a
freshman himself. "Getting playing time is the only way to improve and get
better.",
Team captain, and lone Michigan senior, Thad Garner also took note of the
experience earned by this season's freshmen.
"When pressure situations arise in the future, they'll remember this
year," said Garner. "It'll really pay off." e
Teonlyplyea r wh won't benefitfrom he lups taen this yea isGr
piest."
On paper, the Wolverines' 7-20 record would seem to leave a lot to be
* season won' be reembere as on that had aot go wrong Instead, it wl
be remembered as one that had a lot go right.

By STEVEN R. KAMEN ,
The Michigan men's gymnastics team
finished fifth at the Big Ten Gymnastic
Championships in Madison, .Wisconsin
Saturday. The competition was stiff,
and the Wolverine gymnasts had a few
setbacks which anulled their chances
for a Big Ten title this year.
Winning the. Big Ten gymnastic title
were the Minnesota Gophers with a
formidable score of 274.95. Illinois and
Iowa: tied for second place with 274.00.
Ohio State placed fourth at 272.70 while
the Wolverines took fifth, scoring
268.55.
MICHIGAN head coach Newt Loken
said, "We are disappointed, but the top
five teams were so close that any one
could have won it."
Perhaps most devastating to
Michigan was the injury of its senior
Chris Van Mierlo. Van Mierlo tore
several ligaments in his leg while on the
high bar. He recently came back from
major surgery on his right shoulder and
now the injury to his leg will require
further surgery. "When we 'lost Chris
Van Mierlo, it disrupted our momen-
tum but the guys didn't give up the
ship," Loken said.

Indeed, there were several bright
spots in the competition for the
Wolverines. Kevin McKee tied Min-
nesota's Brian Meeker for first place oni
the floor exercise with a score of 9.65.
Also on the floor exercise Michigan's
Milan Stanovich took sixth place with
an impressive score of 9.45. McKee and
Stanovich led the tumblers to their
season high and first place on the floor
exercise in the Big Ten with a score of
46.85.
On the still rings Wolverine Rick
Kaufmann took a second place with a
9.60. Following close behind were
teammates Al Berger and Dino Manus
who took fourth and seventh place,
respectively, with score of 9.35 and 9.20.
Michigan's strong performance on the
still rings led the team to a first place at
the meet by scoring 44.65.
On the team's strong performances
Loken said, "Milan Stanovich and
Kevin McKee had fine performances
for us, and I was also p4eased with our
floor exercise and ring squads."*
Some other highlights for the
Michigan gymnasts were Stanovich's
first-place score of 9.65 in the vaulting
event and Manus's third place score of
9.30 on the parallel bars.

night's game against the Detroit
Pistons without the services of All-Star

tle, with the Pistons having 13-point
