4-0 WOLVERINES READY FOR VIKINGS
Hot 'M' to face Cleveland

State

By LARRY MISHKIN
What a difference a year can make.
Last'season going into its fifth game,
the Michigan Wolverines found them-
selves mired with a 1-3 record and fans
were bracing for what would be a long
winter in Ann Arbor,
NOW, TAKE a look at the 1982-83 ver-
sion of the Wolverines - 4-0, including a
decisive win over a strong Kansas
squad on Monday night, and the Crisler
Arena crowds are getting bigger in-
stead of smaller.
Tonight, the undefeated Wolverines
put their perfect record on the line (that
sounds a lot better than their 1-3
record) when they host the Cleveland
State Vikings (1-1) in Crisler Arena at 8
p.m.
Michigan played its finest game of
the year on Monday, soundly defeating
a good Jayhawk squad, 86-74. The big
question mark for the team, now, is can
it continue to perform at the same high
caliber shown against Kansas. Coach
Bill Frieder thinks they can.
"I DON'T think we'll have a let-
down," he said. "We're fairly loose
right now. We worked with the kids
that didn't play much against Kansas
and we showed them all films and went
over the Cleveland State scouting
reports. I'm going to be disappointed if
there is a letdown."

Frieder said the Kansas win was im-
portant, because it gave his team some
confidence. It proved to them they can
be a good team, if they play good defen-
se and work hard to execute the offense.
One aspect the team will have to work
extra hard on is its layups and play un-
der the offensive board.
"MOSTLY OUR young guys are
missing layups," said the Wolverine
coach, "although Ike's missed a few
too. I think that'll all come. They're
aware of it and they're going to work at
it. It's just that maybe they're trying
too hard or inexperienced or a com-
bination of things, but we're missing too
many and that's very costly."
Tonight's game will be the first time
Michigan and Cleveland State have
ever met, but this does not worry Frieder.
'We know they're a pretty good
basketball school," he said. "They've
had winning records year in and year
out and they've got a great coach (Ray
Dieringer). They've got some good
players from Ohio. They beat out Ohio
State a few years ago and got Dave
Colbert (6-8, 10.4 ppg) and he had 27
points in their opener the other night."
BECAUSE Michigan has only one
day off between the two games, Frieder
said he was more concerned with giving
his squad a rest rather than preparing
for tonight's contest. However, he cited

the Viking's defense as a concern of his.
"They do a good job with the matchup
zone," he said, "and we played against
an all man-to-man defense on Monday
against Kansas. Now we're going to go
against a different type of defense so
it's a matter of reacting to that and
playing well against that."
Tonight's starting lineup will be the
same one which took the floor against

Kansas except Paul Jokisch will be get-
ting his first start of the season in place
of Richard Rellford.
"I'm not going with Jokisch because
Rellford didn't do a good job," said
Frieder, "but I've told each freshman
that I was going to start them at least
once in these first five or six games and
Jokisch hasn't started yet."

'M' guards fill the hoop . .
...but wnhere is the depth?-
By JIM DWORMAN
Overheard after Michigan 's 86-74 victory over Kansas:
"How about that Eric Turner and Leslie Rockymore. Aren't they the best
pair of guards you've seen?" said Mr. Optimist.
"They're the only pair of guards I've seen," replied Mr. Pessimist. "Those
Kansas guards sure didn't guard anyone tonight."
"That's because Turner and Rock were too quick for them," shot back Op-
timist. "And look what Turner did all those times he did get open. Ten for 16
from the field, and I can only remember three of those baskets being layups.
And what was Rock, eight for 10? He didn't shoot too many layups, either."
"Yeah, that's true," conceded Pessimist. "They usually are pretty hot
from outside. It's too bad they don't shoot free throws that well."
"C'mon. Turner hit six of 'em last night."
"Sure, but he missed three, all in the second half. I'll bet Bobby Knight
would love to put Turner at the line if Indiana needed the ball and time were
running out." .
"Bobby Knight would also like to put Turner in an Indiana uniform. I'll bet
he loves Frieder's play where Turner dribbles off the forward's pick up on
the right wing and then pulls up and shoots from 18 feet. Has E.T. ever
missed that shot?"
"You've got me there," replied Pessimist. "But who is going to take that
shot if Turner fouls out?"
"Rockymore."
"Be serious. Rock might be a great shooter off a pick but he can't dribble
to get to one."
"What are you talking about?" argues Optimist. "Rock didn't turn the ball
over once."
"He never got the chance," said Pessimist. "On the few times he did bring
the ball up the floor did you notice how he's afraid to use his left hand?"
"I guess you're right," said Optimist. "Maybe Pelekoudas could take that
18-foot shot ... Well, maybe not. I don't think he has that range. Speaking of
Pelekoudas, did you notice how some people were booing when he came into
the game?"
"Yeah, that's unfortunate. Even though he may not be as talented as the
rest of the players on the court he's just a student like the rest of us and he's
trying as best he can."
"Oh well," Optimist sighed. "Say, I just realized - Michigan only has
three guards on its team. What's going to happen if one of them gets hurt or
fouls out? Where is the depth?"
"The depth was sitting right behind the Michigan bench, about twelve
rows up," said Pessimist. "He was wearing a Jack Daniels baseball cap and
his name is Antoine Joubert."
"For now," he continued, "there is none."

If you have Used Books
to Sell -Read This!

Gnatkowski leads cagers

As the Semester end approaches-bringing with it a period of heavy
book selling by students-ULRICH'S would like to review with you their
BUY-BACK POLICY.
Used books fall into several categories, each of which-because of the
law of supply and demand-has its own price tag. Let's explore these
various categories for your guidance.
CLASS I. CLOTHBOUND
A textbook of current copyright-used on our campus-and which the
Teaching Department involved has approved for re-use in upcoming
semesters-has the highest market value. If ULRICH'S needs copies
of this book we will offer a minimum of 50% off the list price for copies
in good physical condition. When we have sufficient stock of a title
for the coming semester, URLICH'S will offer a "WHOLESALE PRICE"
which will be explained later in this article. (THIS IS ONE REASON
FOR SELLING ALL YOUR USED BOOKS as soon as you are finished
with them!)
CLASS II. PAPERBOUND,
Paperback are classified in two groups: A. Text paperbacks; B. Trade
Paperbacks.
A. Text Paperbacks will be purchased from you as Class I books
above.
B. Trade Paperbacks would draw an approximate offer of 25%/6 of the
list price when in excellent condition.
CLASS l l.
Some of the above Class I or Class II books will be offered which have
torn bindings, loose pages, large amounts of highlighting and under- j
lining, or other physical defects. These will be priced down according
to the estimated cost of repair or saleability.
CLASS IV.
Each semester various professors decide to change text for a given

Two years ago Lori Gnatkowski step-
ped right into the starting line-up of the
Michigan women's basketball team.
Since then she has started at point-
guard in all but three games in her
college career. She proved to be an im-
portant cog in last season's 17-9 record,
and should play an even more impor-
tant role for this year's team.
"Lori is one of the reasons we started
winning," said Michigan head coach

Gloria Soluk. "She's one of our basic
defensive players."
LAST SEASON Gnatkowski regis-
tered 125 assists and 72 steals, both
team-leading totals. Her 9.4 points per
game average placed her fourth on the

team, and included a high of 22 points
against Central Michigan. Gnatkowski
is also one of the top free-throw
shooters on the team, hitting on 67.5%
of her attempts from the charity stripe
last season.
"She doesn't score a lot," said Soluk
"but she does the things that don't show
up on the stat sheets."
The 5'-6 junior guard helped lead
Carrollton High School to the Michigan
Class C State Championship with a 28-0
record in her senior season. The team
placed runner-up in both her
sophomore and junior seasons. Her
strong team play was surprising con-
sidering her late introduction to the
game.

course. These decisons on change of textbooks are made in echelons
of THINKING AND AUTHORITY far above the level of your local book retailers, AND ULRICH'S
HAS NO PART IN THE DECISION. (Quite often we have MANY copies of the old title which
you have only ONE.)
However, ULRICH'S does enter the picture by having connections with other bookstores
throughout the country. We advertise these discontinued books and sell many of them at schools
where they are still being used. ULRICH'S does this as a service to you and pays you the best
possible "WHOLESALE PRICE" when you sell them to us with your currently used books.
CLASS V.
Authors and publishers frequently bring out new editions. When we "get caught" with an old
edition, let's accept the fact that it has no value on the wholesale market, and put it on the shelf
as a reference book.
You will find that you come out best in the long run when you sell ALL your books to ULRICH'S.

"I DIDN'T even start playing
basketball until ninth grade," she said.
She also participated in softball,
volleyball and track during her high
school career.
After high school, Gnatkowski was
recruited by Michigan State, Central
Michigan and Saginaw Valley State,
but chose Michigan because of its good
academic reputation and the fact that
the team "needed a guard."
Gnatkowski is just coming off a
couple of injuries, an ankle injury and a
slight concussion. "I've sprained it (the
ankle) so much, all thectendons and
ligaments are stretched," said
Gnatkowski. After several weeks in a
cast, she is continuing to work it back
into shape. "It's getting stronger with
rehab (rehabilitation)," she said.
LAST WEEK Gnatkowski suffered a
mild concussion when she "knocked
heads" with a teammate in practice.
"She's playe'd with pain," said Soluk.
"She's a step slower because of the
(ankle) injury; (but) she's a fierce
competitor."
The Wolverines will need a healthy
Gnatkowski if they hope to make a bid
for the Big Ten title this season. The
home opener for Soluk's troops is
tonight at Crisler Arena at 5:00 p.m.,
just prior to the men's game. ClevelandO
State will provide the opposition. Last
season the Vikings came up with an 85-
79 overtime victory over the women
hoopsters at Crisler. This year
Michigan has pay-back on its mind.
"We're hopeful we can give the home-
town fans a victory," said Soluk.
Notre Dame and Saginaw Valley
State will follow Cleveland State into
Crisler in this three-game home-stand.
