Cagers begin tough road swing

By JOHN KERR
Special to the Daily
CHAMPAIGN - It's only the middle
:a of February, but Michigan basketball
coach Bill Frieder has already uttered
w 'What could turn out to be the quote of
the year.
The scene -was the visiting locker
room at Jenison Field House in East
Lansing following the Wolverines' 74-67
win over Michigan State last Saturday.
The topic was Michigan's upcoming
two-game road trip to Illinois and Pur-
due.
"WHEN YOU go into Champaign and

post-season tournament aspirations.
Michigan, if it is to have any hope of
gaining an NIT bit, must win at least
one of its two road games this week.
Should the Wolverines fall to both
Illinois tonight and Purdue on Satur-
day, they would have almost no chance
of playing in a tournament following the
Big Ten season.
ILLINOIS IS also at a crucial point in
its schedule. The Illini are 6-5 in the Big
Ten, tied for third place, and still have a
realistic shot at an NCAA bid. They are
coming off two straight road losses, a
58-55 defeat at the hands of North-

It seems like the Illini had fire in their
eyes when the two teams met earlier in
the season at Crisler Arena. Illinois
guards Derek Harper and Bruce
Douglas combined for 45 points to lead
Illinois to a 87-74 victory. Illinois out-
rebounded Michigan in the game - one
of only two teams to do that this season.
Henson admitted that his team's
rebounding performance against
Michigan in Ann Arbor was unexpected
and that rebounding could be the key to
tonight's game.
"IT SURPRISED us that we
outrebounded them (in Ann Arbor),"
Henson said. "They are a very physical
club and the rebounding will definitely
be important tonight."
If Frieder will start the same lineup
that he successfully used against
Michigan State last week, that should
give the Wolverines some extra
rebounding power. Senior Isaac Person
and freshman Paul Jokisch both star-

ted their first Big Ten game of the
season against the Spartans and
provided the Wolverines with a boost.
Frieder feels that in order for Michigan
to beat Illinois it will have to play just
as hard as it did against MSU.
"We'll just have to go out and play
with the same kind of intensity that we
had against Michigan State," said
Frieder. "We can't have a letdown."
While Michigan must worry about
defensing Illinois guards Harper and
Douglas, the Illini will have a major
headache trying to stop Eric Turner.
Turner scored 25 points against Illinois
earlier in the season with many of his
shots coming with nobody on him. Hen-
son, though, said he plans no major
defensive changes to stop the Michigan
guard. "We don't want him to shoot
because we have great respect for him.
as the shooter," he said. "We're
basically a man-to-man team and we
won't change. Harper will be on him."

'I'd have to say I have a better chance
of finding Jimmy Hoffa."
Finding Jimmy Hoffa? That is what
,he said.
Frieder, the eternal optimist, may
&have overstated the difficulty of win-
ig on the road in the Big Ten with his
e Hoffa analogy, but neither he nor
''l4inois coach Lou Henson could over-
state the importance of today's.

western and a 68-66 loss to Iowa, so a
loss to the Wolverines at home would
considerably lessen Illinois' chances of
playing in the NCAA tournament.
Frieder knows how much this game
means to the Illini and feels that could
be trouble for Michigan. "It will be a
very, very tough basketball game," he
said. "They are coming off two losses
and they have hopes of going to the
NCAA's. They're going to have fire in
their eyes."

answer is yes.
"Naomi (who joined the team after
- the end of the first term) has really fit
right in," said Michigan coach Stu
SIsaac. "She was a big hit right away.
Instead of hurting, it may have helped
some of our other swimmers improve
their times."
Marubashi missed the beginning of the
season swimming for Canada in the
Commonwealth Games. This was her
third appearence on a world class team
for Canada. She was also a member of
the 1980 Canadian Olympic team and

took a nal-year break. The break
helped me mentally. I came back wan-
ting to swim."
Swim is exactly what Marubashi has
done. She has been very impressive
swimming the 50- and 100-yard
freestyle for the Wolverines. "She
helped fill a real big gap swimming the
sprints," said Isaac. "She has also been
able to go a good 200 and 500
(freestyle)."
Marubashi will be swimming in five
events, the 50-, 100-, 200-, and 500-yard

With a good showing , Marubashi
could reach her immediate goal, the
NCAA Championships. A good perfor-
mance would also help the Wolverines
become Big Ten Champions.
"The team has a really good chance
to win it," said Marubashi. "It will be
close, it will be tough. We need a little
more spirit to win. We really have to get
behind the team to win. I don't know
what to expect at Big Tens. I'm not too
sure what my competition is like."
The team aspect is important, but
when you get down to it, swimming is
an individual sport. Swimmers go for
their own personal goals and not just
for the good of the team.
"The most exhilirating thing is to
touch, look up and look at the time,"
said Marubashi. "Even if I've won an
event and it hasn't been my best time
I'm dissappointed."
