shocks Isles, 2-0

Soviets tumble into Crisler

Special to the Daily
DETROIT - Two second-period
goals and an outstanding perfor-
mance by goaltender Corrado
Micalef lifted the Detroit Red Wings
to a 2-0 victory over the slumping
New York Islanders last night at Joe
Louis Arena.
Micalef, making only his sixth
start of the season, turned away
everything the Islanders threw at
him, including numerous
breakaways and a rare penalty shot.
The rookie netminder finished the
evening with 26 saves.
THE PENALTY shot came at 5:19
of the second period when the Red
Wings were called for grabbing the
puck in the crease. Clark Gilles
skated in on Micalef's right side,
faked to the center and then attem-
ved to drop the puck in the right cor-
ner. Howver, Micalef's stick was
waiting for the shot.
At 8:49 of the second stanza, Willie
Huber took a rebound off the boards
at the point just as the puck was
about to leave the zone, and fired
home a blazing slapshot 'to the
short side of Islander goalie Billy
Smith.
Stan Weir followed five minutesa
later with theRed Wings' second
goal when he skated up the right side

and took four shots at point blank
range. Finally, with Smith on the
ice, Weir deposited the puck into an
empty net.
Micalef commented on the vic-
tory: "It was a great team perfor-
mance. It took a great overall effort
to beat those guys. The defensemen,
especially Schoenfeld, were stop-
ping a lot of pucks before they got to
me."
Knicks crown Pistons
By RICH WIENER
Special to the Daily
PONTIAC- Bernard King led the
New York Knicks to a 120-109 victory
over the Detroit Pistons last night at
the Silverdome. Despite being ejec-
ted with 2:43 left in the game, King
was able to pour in 43 points for the
Knicks to lead all scorers.
The Knicks, who had been up by as
many as 19 points in the third quar-
ter, were involved in an aggressive
battle with the Pistons for the lead in
the fourth. With New York leading
106-105, King threw a punch at
Detroit center Bill Laimbeer, and
was ejected from the game.
DETROIT LED 62-55, at the half
but the Knicks opened up the third
quarter with 14 unanswered points
which ultimately led them to an 87-77
lead at the end of the third.'

The Russians are here.
The Soviet collegiate all-star gym-
nastics team arrived in Ann Arbor
yesterday for the fifth stop in a seven-
city U.S. tour. The Michigan gymnasts
will have a chance to test their skill
against the Soviets tonight at 8:00 P.M.
;at Crisler Arena.
NORTHERN Illinois, Illinois, Temple
and Pitt have already hosted the
Soviets and found out how good they
are. Tuesday night at Pittsburgh, for
instance, their team score was 288.
That comes to an average of 9.6 per
person per event, a winning score at all
of Michigan's competitions.
Soviet coach Vladimir Lukianov
knows how good his team is. "At
present," said Lukianov, through tran-
slator Oleg Koumalagov, "they are
competing to be members of that (the
Soviet Olympic) team. They are con-
sidered candidates.
"Hopefully," he added, "two or three
members (of the touring squad) will
make in onto that team."
ALTHOUGH the Soviets are young -
aged 18 to 23- this U.S. tour has not been
their first taste of big-time competition.
Lukianov said that they have a number

have new moves that we can learn,"
said Loken.
The Soviets also hope to gain ex- 6
perience from their tour. "First," said
Lukianov, "the guys gain experience
during international competitions. And
they do need experience since they are
young. This tour gives us a chance to
see how stable their performance is."
One reason for the Soviet success has
been training. Soviet captain Sergei
Barnov said that he trains three-and-a-
half to four hours a day. The practices
became more intensive since learning
of the U.S. tour, he added.
BARNOV'S response when asked how
he likes the U.S. gives an indication of
just how rigorous the training program
is. "We haven't seen much, he said.
"We get on the plane, practice, have a
competition, and then start the cycle all
over again."
While Michigan gymnasts also train
hard, they took a day out last weekend
to tour Washington D.C. after com-
peting in the All-Around Classic there.
A large crowd is expected for the
exhibition tonight, over 4,000 according
to Marcia Bylicki, who works in the
promotions office. Plenty of tickets are
still available. Prices are $2 for studen-
ts and children and $4 for adults.

of competitions behind them, both
within the Soviet Union and inter-
nationally.
Seeing the strength of his opposition
yesterday as the visiting team worked
out, Michigan coach Newt Loken was
more than a little awed. "Wow," he
said, "I feel like David going out to
meet Goliath."

Michigan gymnast Rick Kaufmann
was able to keep things in perspective.
"Whether we win or lose is really
beside the point," he said.
LOKEN, TOO, thinks this will be a
great experience. He thinks his gym-
nasts will pick up pointers from wat-
ching the Soviets' technique,and
warm-up system. "And they might

Garner finds new role

By JOE BOWER
Thad Garner, one of only three men
ever to captain a Michigan basketball
team for two years, now finds himself
in a very different role with the Billings
(Mont.) Volcanoes of the Continental
Basketball Association.
Last year he was the cornerstone of
the Michigan basketballteam.Coach
Bill Frieder called him "the glue of the
1981-1982 team" that held it together.
Now he is one of several building blocks
trying to mold the Volcanoes into a con-
tender.
HE WAS an established star and such
an outstanding leader at Michigan that
an award was named in his honor. Now

he is an unproven rookie temporarily
regulated to the role of a follower in a
league that lacks significant media
coverage, especially in the Midwest.
"It is quite a different situation,"
admitted Garner in a telephone inter-
view from his hotel room in Billings.
"I'm still adjusting to the new lifestyle
and also to a much more competitive
game."~
Whatever the CBA lacks in coverage
it makes up for in talent according to
the 6-6, 190-pound former Wolverine.

Many ex-NBA players are scattered
throughout the two conference 10-team
league; the Volcanoes have four on
their roster.
BILLINGS coach Bill Klucas, whose
team is affiliated with the Utah Jazz,
was part of the reason that the NBA
club drafted Garner in the seventh
round. "I was impressed with his play
and felt he could contribute so I en-
couraged the Jazz to draft him," he ex-
plained.
Garner has just started to contribute.
After an uneventful exhibition season,
he came off the bench to add six points
and seven rebounds in last Friday's
season opener, a two-point loss to the
Wyoming Wildcats. He called it a
"decent performance," but he is ac-
customed to more impressive
achievements.
He came to Michigan with outstan-
ding credentials as a prep All-State
player from Bishop Noll H.S. in Gary,
Ind., including membership on three
high school All-American teams. He
left with even more. Before graduating,
he had steadily built himself into an
outstanding player one step at a time.
His scoring average illustrates that as
it rose annually, including three years
in which he averaged in double figures.
LAST YEAR, the two-time captain
was selected the Most Valuable Player
as well as being named a member of the
UPI second-team All-Big 10 team. He
also became the first recipient of the
Thad Garner Leadership Award which
he said was "a great honor."
Surprisingly, that was not the
highlight of his college career.
"Playing with last year's team was the
high point I'll remember most," he
declared. Despite the team's 7-20
record, the players developed "a very
close unity" that made playing more

enjoyable. "I've never been on a team
that was as close as that one," he said.
Things have changed quite a bit since
then. "The game is so different at the
CBA level," he conceded. "It's much
more competitive than college ball and
is comparable with the NBA. There are
a lot of players here who were released
from NBA teams that had the talent to
make it but couldn't adjust to a dif-g
ferent way of life."
THE COACHES are quite different
too. "Coach Klucas isn't as demanding
as Coach Frieder and Orr were. He
makes it your responsibility to play
well. If you don't, you don't get paid and
get cut. Michigan coaches taught a lot
and pushed you more."
On his tryout with Utah, Garner of-
fered nog explanation for being placed
on w aivers. "I just didn't make it," he
said. "Hopefully I'll get another chan-
ce."
Klucas was very enthusiastic about
having him on his team. He was signed
immediately after the Jazz released
him. "He is an excellent athlete and
will play for us at small forward and big
guard. We are expecting big things
from him," he said.
Garner has high expectations for
himself, but those expectations are not
confined just to basketball. This sum-
mer he plans to return to Michigan and
start working on his master's degree in
social work. Eventually, he wants to
work with prison inmates, but now he
plans to continue playing as long as he
can maintain a summer class schedule
and the 44-game basketball season. He
added, "I'm still learning things and
still enjoy playing so why stop?
Besides, I would like to play in the NBA
before I'm done." For now he will be
content to take everything one step at a
time.

candidate, your Navy training is geared
to making you a leader. There is no boot
camp. Instead, you receive professional
training to help you build the technical

equipment worth
millions of dollars.

lenge and a lot more
responsibility than
/ most corporations give
you at 22. The rewards
are bigger, too. There's
a comprehensive package of benefits,
including special duty pay. The starting
salary is $16,400-more than most com-
panies would pay you right out of college.
After four years, with regular promo-
tions and pay increases, your salary will
have increased to as much as $29,800.
As a Navy officer, you grow, through
new challenges, new tests of your skills,
