, his weekend the Wolverine icers will
try to begin the long climb out of the
clfr of the CCHA by attempting to
dig1iuer the Broncos of Western
D i igan.
_A sweep of the series would do the
Michigan squad a world of good as its
last two series, against Northern
Mjdhigan and Ohio State, have been one
gome splits. If history is any indication,
Michigan does have a good chance of
beating the Broncos as the Wolverines
all-time record against Western stands
at, 5-0-1. Last season the Wolverines
were able to down the Broncos 4-3 in
Yist and take a 3-3 tie in the series'
sekond game in Kalamazoo. But this
year, Western has a few tricks up its
ONE OF those tricks is right winger
Bob Bailey, whose scoring is marked by
six goals and seven assists, bringing
him to a total of 13 points. Bronco cen-
ter Jim Grillo is close behind with six
goals and six assists for 12 points and
teammate Lance Johnston, also a cen-
ter, has five goals and seven assists,
marking another 12-point total.
One problem the Bronco squad will
face is the absence of veteran goalie
Glenn Healy. Healy will not dress for
tonight's game at Yost because he
missed the team's curfew last Friday
night after the Denver-Western mat-
chup. Tending the net instead will be
Steve Abbott, who has played four
games thus far this season. The disad-
vantage comes in the fact that Healy
has a 4-6 record and posts a 3.67 goals
against average while Abbott's record
is 1-3 with a 6.5 goals against average.
Michigan goalie Jon Elliott, who will
be starting tonight's game in the net
against Western according to Michigan
coach John Giordano, displays a 6.26
goals against average:
"THIS IS a key series, for us," said
Western coach Bill Wilkinson. "We're
getting back into league play, and we
can put ourselves in a good position
heading into the Christmas break with
some big wins in the next three weeks.
We need to play solid hockey in these
next three series."
Last weekend, Western did not play
very solid hockey against non-
conference Denver, however, as the
Broncos went down in defeat both
nights with scores of 5-1 and 10-4.
"The series was a good experience
for us. It will improve us," said Wilkin-
son of the losses to Denver. "But we
have got to cut down on our tendency to
give up the puck in our own end."
The Wolverines will be ready, though,
if the Broncos continue to give up the
puck, as freshman Chris Seychel
boasts 17 goals and 15 assists, adding up
to a total of 32 points. Teammate co-
captains Ted Speers and Brad Tippett
have also performed well offensively
with 9 goals and 22 assists for a total of
31 points and 9 goals 18 assists for 27
Giordano sees the Western defense as
the biggest problem his icers will have
to deal with in the matchup. "They
have a good defense, they're big and
strong and tough," Giordano said.
When asked if his Michigan squad could
overcome this apparent obstacle he
remarked "we'd better if we want to

Lake Superior State College hockey coach Bill Selman, a founding father of the
Central Collegiate Hockey Association in his days at St. Louis University, ended a
15-year coaching career Wednesday when he announced his resignation. Selman,
whose decision surprised the Soo Laker players and athletic department, is-
leaving the post on January 1to accept a job with the Anheuser-Busch Corporation.
Selman joined Lake Superior in March of 1981, and has helped turn the program
around. After three consecutive losing seasons, the Lakers
were 19-17-3 under Selman last year. The team is off to a 3-7
start in 1982, but Selman said that the team's record has
nothing to do with his decision.
THE TWO decisions we had to make were whether to
,a s L a k e take the job in St. Louis and whether to leave the team
during the middle of the season," said Selman, who
becomes assistant sports marketing manager for the f
10 or 20 years, and this is a better decision'for my family." Selman
The Lake Superior coach was rumored to be the leading
candidate to replace Bud Cooper, the school's athletic director, who is planning to
retire in two years. Now, however, the decision has been delayed and the top
chockeyjob falls to first-year assistant coach Frank Anzalone, who will serve
through the end of the season, when a permanent coach will be hired.
"I could have been the athletic director here," said Selman. "What I've chosen
to do is administer athletics on a corporate level rather than a college level.
"The players understand the opportunity that I have," he added. "They have ac-
cepted Frank Anzalone, and I think that the program will continue to expand and
improve with Frank as the coach."

CHICAGO (AP)- Dennis Green of
Northwestern has been named
Associated Press Big Ten football
Coach of the Year.
Green, in only his second year at Nor-
thwestern, guided the Wildcats to a 3-8
record which in many instances would
get a coach fired. But the three vic-
tories were monumental streak stop-
NORTHWESTERN ended an NCAA
record losing streak of 34 games with a
victory over Northern Illinois. The
Wildcats then closed a 38-game Big Ten
losing streak with a triumph over Min-
nesota and ended the season with a vic-
tory at Michigan State, snapping a 46-
game winless streak on the road.
Green received 102 first-place votes
and a total of 448 points to finish well
ahead of Hayden Fry of Iowa who had
60 firsts and 352 points. Mike White of
Illinois was third with 24 firsts and 188
Bo Schembechler of Michigan's Big
Ten champions was fourth with 162
points followed by Earle Bruce of Ohio
State with 102 points.
State Athletic Director Doug Weaver
had asked for permission to talk to-
Nehlen about assuming the coaching-
spot being vacated by Frank "Muddy"
Waters, who was fired recently.
"MY PLANS are to continue
coaching at West Virginia. Period,"
said Nehlen, apparently irritated y
questions about his future.
"Hey, this is ridiculous. It is over thee
television and radio stations. I have not
been contacted by them ...
Nehlen added rumors about his
leaving No. 8 WVU are hurting the
Mountaineers' recruiting efforts.
"EVERY TIME a job opens up, they
mention my name-Ohio States
Michigan State or whatever. I can't
make a comment because I don't knoW
anything about it, and I could care-
Nehlen has a .guaranteed four-yea?
salary with the Mountaineers, backed
by the WVU Foundation.
The former University of Michigan
assistant and Bowling Green head,
coach guided the Mountaineers to a 9-2
record this year. His team is scheduled-
to meet No. 14 Florida State in the-
Gator Bowl Dec. 30.
