Rebuilding may turn out to be the
theme for the 1982 Wolverine women's
Volleyball season. The Michigan
bpikers,. the reigning Big Ten cham-
pions. will be hard pressed to match the.
success of the 1981 squad as they open
their season by hosting the Wolverine
Invitational today.
Due to the inexperience of this year's
team coach Sandy Vong admits that
the Wolverines might have some dif-
ficulty matching the accomplishments
of last season's club.

HOWEVER, Michigan will not open the season without some
returnees from last season. Juniors Alison Noble and Susan
Rogers will be returnipg to the Wolverine lineup and can be
expected to provide some valuable leadership. Noble garnered a
spot on the All-State volleyball team as a freshman and a berth
on the All-Regional squad last year.
Rogers, the only other starter besides Noble returning, will
again play in the center-blocker position for the Wolverines:
For all of his team's inexperience, Vong seems to be pleased
with the squad thus far and seems to have confidence in the
fteshman class.
"THEY'VE blended in together really well in the two weeks
:that we've been practicing," said Vong. "They may not be as
talented as last year's team but they are very quick learners."
While Noble and Rogers will be the mainstays of the team this
season, Vong is also looking for solid performances from junior
Jeanne Weckler and sophomore Deborah Holloway.
"They are coming along well in practice and should help
replace some of the starters that we lost," said Vong.
THE WOLVERINES are expecting good competition in their
first tournament from Notre Dame, Wayne State, Ferris State,
Schoolcraft, Lake Superior, and Grand Valley. Vong points out
the tournament should provide a good test for his team and an
opportunity to gain some valuable game experience.
"Although Schoolcraft is a junior college, they will be a tough
team. They've been to the junior college nationals two years in a
Prow," said Vong.' "Wayne State has also given us a lot of trouble
in the past and always fields a strong team.
"The tournament should give us a chance to look at the fresh-
men and give them a chance to get some experience," added
Vong.
As for the rest of the season Vong hopes for the Wolverines to
be in contention to repeat as Big Ten champions.
"We're going to try to hang in tight for the first half of the
season until we get enough experience," said Vong.
The Wolverine Invitational will get under way at 10:00 a.m. at
the Central Campus Rec Building today.

NEW YORK (AP) - Second-seeded Chris
Evert Lloyd, seeking her sixth title, and Hana
Mandlikova of Czechoslovakia advanced
yesterday into the women's singles final at*
the U.S. Open Tennis Championships.
Lloyd, who has reached the semifinals of
America's premier tennis event in each of the
12 years she has played here, crushed fourth-
seeded Andrea Jaeger 6-1, 6-2, while Man-
dlikova ousted No. 7 Pam Shriver 6-4, 2-6, 6-2.
TODAY'S FINAL, which will be nationally
televised by CBS, matches the 1980 finalists,
the last time either player reached the cham-
pionship match. Lloyd defeated mandlikova
5-7, 6-1, 6-1 on the hard courts at the National
Tennis Center two years ago.
The top four men's seeds will meet in the
semifinals Saturday, with top-seeded John
McEnroe facing No. 3 Ivan Lendl of
Czechoslovakia, and No. 2 Jimmy Connors
meeting No. 4 Guillermo Vilas of Arg-entina.
Connors and Vilas will begin today's action
at 11 a.m. EDT on center court in Louis Ar-
mstrong Stadium, followed by the women's
final, then McEnroe and Lendl.
LLOYD, WHO WON the women's title each
year from 1975-1978, then captured it again in
1980, had litle problems with Jaeger, who had
beaten her in three of four meetings this year.
The two baseline players began cautiously,
testing the other, engaging in long rallies.
But Lloyd, whoe arlier this week complained
of illness after eating cheesecake, became the
dominant force.
Jaeger held serve to begin the match,
having to fight off a break point to do so. It
was her last hurrah as Lloyd riped through
the next seven games, capturing the first set
and taking a 1-0 lead in the second.
THE LONG RALLIES - one produced 40
strokes - were infrequent as Lloyd kept relen-
tless pressure on her 17-year-old opponent,
surprisingly going to the net on occasion to
finish off points.
Jaeger fought off one set point at 30-40 in the
seventh game, pulling to deuce with a cross-
court backhand drop shot. But she then
doublefaulted and stroked a backhand long,
giving Lloyd the opening set.
With that opening, Lloyd quickly took ad-
vantage, fighting through a deuce to hold ser-
ve to begin the second set. After Jaeger held
serve and Lloyd again was forced to deuce
before holding again for a 2-1 lead, the five-
time U.S. Open champion swept her teenage
opponent at love.

JAEGER BROKE right back as Lloyd had
problems holding her serve. But Lloyd took
the next game, breaking Jaeger at 15 - then
served a love game for a 5-2 lead.
She closed out the 75-minute match by
breaking Jaeger for the sixth time in the mat-
ch, this time at 401 to advance into the final,
where the winner will collect $90,000.
Mandlikova, who lost to Lloyd in the final of
the Italian Open this year and who has been
hamepred by a back injury in 1982, broke
Shriver in the third game of the first set but
surrendered that advantage when Shriver
broke back in the sixth game, tying the set 3-3.
BUT MANDLIKOVA, seeded fifth, broke
again in the seventh game, then held serve to
capture the set.
Shriver recovered -in the second set,
breaking Mandlikova's service in the second,
sixth and eighth games to win it decisively.
But the Czechoslovakian's passing shots and
shot-making genius was too great for Shriver,
a serve-and volley specialist.
Whenever Shriver would venture to the net,
where she feels most comfortable, Manlikova
would pull out a marvelous pas3sing shot or a
delicate lob for winners.

Bucks trade Buc

MILWAUKEE (AP) -' Former
Boston Celtics star center Dave Cowens
was traded to the Milwaukee Bucks
yesterday for Quinn Buckner in a deal
that Bucks Coach Don Nelson called a
calculated risk.
t Nelson said Cowens, who retired
fore the 1980-81 season, is the final
ingredient necessary to make his team
a legitimate contender for the National
Basketball Association title.
"I AM TAKING a risk,a calculated
risk, but I know what makes Dave
Cowens tick," said Nelson, who
remained good friends with Cowens af-
ter they had played together as Celtics
in the 1970s. "If anyone can come back
after two years, it's Dave Cowens.
9"4"I really feel good that we made the
right decision at this point in the history
of-the Milwaukee Bucks. I know we lost
a younger player for a man who will
play with us for a short time. Our team
is now ready to make a legitimate run
at the championship."
Cowens called it a "real challenge" to
come back from his self-imposed
retirement.
Nelson said 34-year--old center Bob
Lanier is near the end of his career. He
.aid the Bucks have made a commit-
ment to him Lanier, to the team and to
the Milwaukee fans to win a title while
Janier is still playing.

More strike talk
SEATTLE (AP) - The National
Football 'League Players Association
appealed yesterday to the Seattle
Seahawks to abide by its decision and
not stage a strike this weekend, when
the regular season begins, to protest the
waiving of Sam McCullum, their for-
mer union representative.
"The executive committee has urged
all teams not to conduct selective
strikes this weekend," Frank Woschitz,
press spokesman for the union, said

kner or
from union headquarters in
Washington. "We would hope the
Seahawks would Abide by the executive
committee's decision and strike only
when, and if, the other teams strike."
THE SEAHAWKS' were considering
a personal protest over the waiving of
McCullum. And the team said it was
preparing to tell its side of the story to
the.National Labor Relations Board.
The Seahawks players scheduled a
meeting for 5 p.m. PDT yesterday to

Cowens
consider a possible team strike of
tomorrow's scheduled season-opening
game against the visiting Cleveland
Browns.
McCullum, a starter and their leading
wide receiver the past three seasons,
was waived by the Seahawks last Mon-
day, the final cutdown day. The union
claimed the action was motivated by
McCullum's union activities, a charge
denied by the club.
