WILDCATS OFF TO BEST START IN 45 YEARS
Michigan Basketball Statistics
Imp roved Northwestern to test M'
By JESSE BARKIN "
Northwestern fans must seriously be
thinking about changing their allegian-
es. Whatever happened to the good old
d'ays when the Wildcat athletic teams
Pimped woefully home after a game,
notching another mark in the right
hand side of the won-loss column?
First, the Wildcats win three games
in the football season, increasing their
win total from the previous two seasons
f0) an infinite number of times. And
now... and now, Northwestern opens
the Big Ten basketball season tonight
against Michigan sporting a 9-1 record,
its best start in 45 years!
BUT DON'T let the record fool you.
Pcnly six of the Wildcat games have
been against Division I schools, and
none of them will ever be confused with
basketball powers. But the Wildcats
are much improved over last seasn
when they finished ninth in the Big Ten,
and will be ready to face the Wolverines
tonight in DePaul's Alumni Hall.
The Wildcats return the bulk of last
year's 8-19 (4-14 in the Big Ten) club,
including second team All-Big Ten for-
ward Jim Stack, 6-7 Art Aaron, and
sophomore center Andre Goode.
Aaron leads the team with a 17.3
scoring average and Stack is con-
tributing 14.7 for Northwestern. Goode,
a 6-10 postman from Rockford, Ill. is the
team leader on the boards, grabbing 8.5
IN THE backcourt, 6-2 speedster
Michael Jenkins returns at point guard
and is joined by 6-6 senior Gaddis
Though the Wildcats have not seen
championship competition thus far,
their impressive record has spread
confidence throughout the team, accor-
ding to coach Rich Falk.
"We have confidence in our chances
to win," said Falk. "That was the
biggest thing we wanted the players to
accomplish during the preseason - we
wanted the players to get confidence
and learn what it takes to be consistent
"WE'RE READY for the start of the
Big Ten season. In order to win con-
sistently in this conference, and against
Michigan, we'll have to play like a top
20 team, because that is the quality
basketball played in the Big Ten."
Michigan coach Bill Frieder concurs
that confidence will be no problem for
the Wildcats. "They don't just think
they're going to beat us, Northwestern
thinks they're going to win the con-
The Wolverines' task will be to
neutralize the Wildcat's forwards,
Stack and Aaron, and more importantly
to play as well as they are capable of
playing. The difference between the
two team's idencal 9-1 records ubing
that Michigan has faced' some for-
midable opponents such as Penn, Kan-
sas and Oklahoma State, in addition to
lesser teams such as Northern
Michigan and Vermont.
Frieder will start the team that rolled
over Penn - Richard Rellford, Robert
Henderson, Tim McCormick, Leslie
Rockymore and Eric Turner.
"My biggest concern is that we're
very young, and our young kids don't
know how hard you have to play in
the Big Ten, especially on the road,"
Frieder said. "Whether our guys are
ready, I don't know."

BLOOMFIELD HILLS (UPI) - All-
America wide receiver Anthony Carter
of Michigan said yesterday he would
seriously consider signing with the
Michigan Panthers of the new United
States Football League.
"I'm glad to be able to have the op-
portunity to be drafted by a pro team,"
said Carter, who set an NCAA record
for all-purpose yardage for Michigan in
his just-concluded career. "I'm also
glad to be drafted by a Michigan team.

going to do," he said. "I haven't talked

he learned the Panthers put him on
their protected list of 26 territorial
players. He was talking with Dr. Jerry
Argovitz, agent for Billy Sim s of the
Detroit Lions among others, but did not

Right now Carter is "going out to the
Hula Bowl and have a nice time out
there before I select an agent."
THE USFL training camps will open
at month's end so Carter will have to
select an agent before then if he is to
seriously consider signing with the new
league. The NFL draft is not held until
"Money is not the reason I would con-
sider the league," Carter said. "It
