'M' pillages

By LARRY MISHKIN
As the season progresses for the
Michigan basketball team, more and
more questions about the young squad
are being answered. Last night, head
coach Bill Frieder learned that his
group can play strong against a low-
caliber team and, more importantly,
that it can win with a balanced scoring
attack as five Wolverines hit double
figures while Michigan blew past
Cleveland State, 95-72, before 7,136 fans
in Crisler Arena.
The one player noticeably absent
from the double figure scoring'group
was sophomore guard Eric Tirner,
whose eight-point total was the first
time in 18 games that the co-captain
failed to reach the double figure
plateau. However, the slick-shooting
guard from Flint made up for his poor
point output by coming up with a
career-high 11 assists that helped the
Wolverines reach their highest point
total in over two years.
LEADING THE Michigan scoring at-
tack were Tim McCormick and Paul
Jokisch, who each had 14 points. The
total was a season-high for McCormick,
who also had seven rebounds and a
blocked shot.
"I'm playing with more confidence
now," said the 6-11 junior from
Clarkston. "Each game I feel more
comfortable. My defense, game
awareness, quickness, and rebounding
are all getting better with each game."
Jokisch, starting in his first game at
Michigan, had eight rebounds to go
along with his points and he received a

nice applause from the crowd for his
hustling effort.
BOTH TEAMS came out strong, but a
layup by Robert Henderson broke a 7-7
tie and the Wolverines never looked
back. With Leslie Rockymore pumping
in 12 of his 13 points in the first half,
Michigan took a comfortable 46-33 lead
into the locker room at halftime.
In the first 10 minutes of the second
stanza, Michigan outscored the
Vikings, 17-9, and coasted the rest of the
way for the victory that improved its
impressive record to 5-0.
"I was basically pleased with our per-
formance tonight," said Frieder. "We
lost our concentration and got sloppy at
times, but that happens when you have
a big lead and substitute a lot. It was a
nice effort. The guys on the floor and off
the bench showed good enthusiasm."
DESPITE THE one-sidedness of the
score, Michigan still made too many
careless mistakes and Frieder knows

'tkes,
that his team will have to work on
mistakes in order to be competiti
the Big Ten.
"We played with too in
carelessness," he said. "We're ti
to go after too many baskets anc
the fast break too much. The fast
causes turnovers. We had ove
tonight (23) and we've got to keep '
der 15 or 12 to be good in the confi
ce."
One area of the game that Fr
was pleased with was his team's d
sive effort, despite the fact that it
up 72 points.
"WE GAVE up 72, but a lot of t
points came at the end of the game
said. "They only had 50 with 10 min
left and that's not too bad. We pl
good defense for a good portion o
game and showed a lot of intensity.
Frieder was especially happy
the way his team held all of

CLEVELAND STATE
MinFG/A FT/A R

Cleveland State players under their
season averages, citing guards Leef
Reed and Jim Les and forward Dave'
Colbert as the players his team did the-
best job on. Reed and Les, who were
both averaging nine points a game':
coming into the contest were held to two'
and zero points respectively' and
Colbert, who had been averaging 18.5'
points a game, was held to 13.
The play of the freshmen also"
received high praise from Frieder, whom
complimented all five of the,,
newcomers on their performances.
"The freshmen are doing a nice job,
he said. "Henderson, Jokisch, and
(Richard) Rellford all did a good joe
scoring (6, 14 and 13 respectively) and..
on the boards (ten, 8, and 8). (Butch).
Wade and (Roy) Tarpley also did a
good job. They're all coming along.:
Without them we might be like we were'
last year."
But with them, Frieder finds himself'
sporting a perfect 5-0 record.

"We were never in it (the game) in the second half,"
Said Michigan head coach Gloria Soluk after the
womens' basketball team dropped its fourth straight
game of the season, 71-68, to Cleveland State at
Crisler Arena last night.
Surprising words for a coach whose team only lost
by three points. Surprising, but for all practical pur-
poses, true.
The Wolverines played hard in the first half,
clinging to a 38-37 halftime lead. Freshmen Wendy
Bradetich and Orethia Lilly led an early Michigan
charge that gave them a 16-6 lead. But Cleveland State
A me charging right back to score 13 of the game's
ext 15 points and grabbed a 19-18 lead.The rest of the
half was played evenly with Michigan holding the lead
at half time.
But the second half was a different story. The
Vikings dominated the tempo, while Michigan made

JLUi

crucial turnovers and missed numerous free throws.
More importantly, however, they couldn't stop
Cleveland State's potent scoring duo of Sue Koziol
and Dianne Foster, who combined for 44 points in the
game.
Michigan tried to press with about six minutes
remaining, but their efforts were ineffective. The
Wolverines couldn't stop Foster (she finished with a
game-high 23 points), or the rest of the Vikings for
that matter. Though they closed the gap to three
points at the very end, the game had already been
decided.
"I don't know what happened," coach Soluk com-
mented. "We had no 'D' in the second half."
Another problem for the Wolverines seemed to be
a lack of spark in their offense. Many times when
they needed a big bucket they would turn the ball
over or take a forced shot.

"Nobody seemed to want to shoot out there
tonight," Soluk explained. "We don't have any real
leadership on the floor, yet."
There were some bright spots, however. Freshman
guard Lilly was very impressive, scoring 21 points.
Coach Soluk said Lilly played a "tremendous" game
and added that she will "probably" start a game
soon.
Lilly's fine play was especially timely because
junior point guard Lori Gnatkowski was hobbled by
an ankle injury and saw limited action.
Peg Harte added 17 points for Michigan, but once
again had trouble at the free throw line. The
sophomore scoring -ace hit only one of seven free
throws. Bradetich contributed 17 points, all in the fir-
st half.
The Wolverines will go after their first win this
Sunday against Notre Dame at Crisler Arena.
