' NIT 4hopes dim

It seems like just yesterday.
The Wolverines turned back the
highly regarded Minnesota Gophers, 63-
58, in the process raising their con-
ference basketball record to 2-2, and
pushing their overall mark to 11-3.
BUT THAT was 51 yesterdays ago,
and needless to say, a lot has transpired
since that victory.
Back then, Bill Frieder and his young
Wolverines had two goals: get into the
NCAA tournament and finish in the up-
per-half of the standings. Michigan still
has two goals, but they are somewhat
changed - get into the NIT tournament
and avoid the Big Ten cellar.

The obvious question: What hap-
pened on the way to the Final Four?
THE ANSWERS may be just as sim-
ple. Leslie Rockymore's season-ending
injury, the slow maturation process of
the freshmen, and ineptness on the road
all have caused Michigan to sink
toward the depths of the conference,
staying only one game afloat over
Despite their present records of 13-12
(4-11 in the Big Ten), the Wolverines
still can salvage the season by earning
an NIT berth. But a win over the host
Gophers is a necessity if there are to be
any post-season tomorrows for

In its home victory over Minnesota,
the Wolverines got the ball inside to
Butch Wade, Tim McCormick and
Richard Rellford, who combined for 28
points. And to complete a sweep over
the Gophers that trio will again have to
respond against conference MVP-
candidate Randy Breuer.
FORTUNATELY FOR Frieder, it is
the play of this tall timber which has
improved despite the Wolverines'
slump. Rellford, who has notched his
career high twice in the last three
outings, has shown life on the offensive
end. In addition, McCormick has
become more aggressive of late.
The rest of the squad, however, has
not matched these inspired performan-
ces, thus leading to the Wolverines'
precarious situation. If Michigan plans
to escape the basement and enter the
NIT, Eric Turner and Robert Hender-
son, among others, will have to string
together three consistent performan-
Regardless of the outcome, though,
one bright spot will occur - a merciless
end to the road season for the
Wolverines. From its 65-63 squeaker
over Detroit to its 82-70 debacle at
Madison, Michigan, which is 3-8 on the
road, has found little, if any success.

With commitments from prep
standouts Antoine Joubert and
Quincy Turner, Michigan basketball
coach Bill Frieder already has not-
ched -his third straight successful
recruiting year. Two seasons ago the
Wolverines landed the man they
wanted, Eric Turner; and last year
Frieder and his staff gathered what
experts rated one of the top
recruiting classes in the nation with
the quintet of Richard Rellford,
Butch Wade, Paul Jokisch, Rob
Henderson and Roy Tarpley. Sports
writer Jesse Barkin asked Frieder, in
a recent interview, what is involved
in recruiting a high school basket-
Daily: How much time do you spend
Frieder: That's hard to say. Usually,
when we're not involved with the team,
then recruiting is what we're doing.
Usually our entire staff sees games
every night and when we have time
we're involved with phone calls and let-
ters and things of that sort.
Daily: How about during the off-
Frieder: Then it's primarily evaluation
at spring practices that schools might
have, or evaluations at basketball
camps in the summertime. Going into
the fall is when you go into the homes to
present your situation and your school
to an upcoming senior. You cannot have
any contact anymore with a high school
recruit off campus during his season
and there's only periods in the summer-
time when you can have contact. For
instance, you can evaluate in June and
July, but you can't have contact. In
May and August you can't evaluate or
have contact, and in September and Oc-
tober you can have contact only.That's
why it's getting possible. They can
come to your campus as much as they
want at their own expense and you can
leave them three complimentary

Daily: Is assistant coach Mike Boyd
involved more in the recruiting of black
Frieder: No, not necessarily. We don't
put one particular coach on one recruit.
I think when you're involved in
recruiting in Michigan you're involved
in recruiting more black players
because there's just many more good
black players in the state than white
players. It doesn't matter (black or
white), it just depends who's available
to do what.
Daily: Do you ask the players to help
Frieder: When a kid visits Michigan,
they spend most of their time with our
players because when you get right
down to it, that's who he's gonna be
with if he comes to Michigan. If they
build a relationship during the visit,
yes, we'll have the players write or
make a phone call, or spend time with
the kid if he comes back to campus.
Tim McCormick and Eric Turner were
great friends when they were in high
school and helped recruit each other to
Michigan. Our kids know that if they
come to me and tell me not to take a
particular kid because he's not a good
kid or because he gets involved in
things that we don't want him involved
in, we're not going to scholarship him to
Daily: Where do alumni fit in?
Frieder: With alumni, it's less and less.
And we've never utilized alums that
much; because we just handle it within
our department. However, the biggest
thing they can do for you is letter
writing, things like that, and the oppor-
tunities that they can create for your
guys after they leave your program,
with jobs and things like that.
Daily: Has there been much un-
solicited alumni interference?
Frieder: No.We haven't had that kind
of problem.
Daily: How young do you recruit?
Frieder: We're watching kids as low as
the seventh grade right now. Basketball
camps are a big thing now. In order to
recruit and to counteract what most of

the schools are doing now we have to
try to get more and more prospects out
to basketball camp.
Daily: What is your budget for'
Frieder: I think it's about $25,000.

at guard), what do you offer a recruit as
selling points, as reasons to come to
Frieder: The biggest thing you want to
sell a young man on is what was the
best decision for him 10 years from
now. If they're not playing pro ball,
where was the best place foi them to go
to school. From that standpoint you
can't beat a place like Michigan. And
when you talk about Michigan you're
talking about great alumni, great
education, great facilities, a good
coaching staff and fine young people in
the program that you're going to spend
four years with.These are the things that
you sell. Unfortunately, playing time
and position and opportunity to play
immediately, these become big factors.
But I wish they wouldn't because a lot
of times they're promised things like
this and then they get to a place and it
doesn't work out that way, and now
they're disappointed.
\ Daily: How much influence do you
have in admissions?
Frieder: Not much, and despite what
you read we don't get much help at all.
Occasionally, if a kid meets NCAA
requirements and he has shown a lot of
progress his senior year, we might get a
break. But they've been very tough on
us, much tougher than when I first
came to Michigan. For instance, if
Rickey Green a 1975 junior-college tran-
sfer and All-American) came along
right now we couldn't get him in. There
are many great players inthe conferen-
ce that were rejected by Michigan. And
now that John Flowers has transferred-
from Indiana, I'll name him as one.

Daily: What can you do, or whatdo
you do if a player is snatched up by a
team you are sure cheated to get him?
Frieder: Unless you can prove it, there
is not a whole lot you can do. If you can
prove it or if you have something
specific you turn it into the conference
and into the NCAA. Basically, if we
know that the kid is on the take then we
just get out and don't recruit him.
I think there was a time here at
Michigan (in the early-mid seventies)
when we were involved with kids and
we were losing them down the stretch
because other schools were cheating,
and we were too naive to figure that out,
but I think that's why we lost them. We
weren't prepared to go down the stretch
what you had to do to get kids like that,
and that's why I concentrated my
recruiting efforts in Michigan. Because
if you recruit kids in-state you don't
have some of the prdblems that you
might have with kids outside the state
of Michigan.
Daily: Will the NCAA eligibility
requirements mandated in Proposal 48
alter your recruiting tactics?
Frieder: Anything they do to
strengthen the requirements will help
Michigan. Because our kids meet most
of those requirements anyway. And
we're going against teams that don't.
But if they create new rules with
loopholes in them then that's a
problem. As far as I'm concerned the
higher they make it, the better.
