"When I go in at that point in the game,
it's to generate excitement," said Jokisch.
"That is the most important part of my
game, to get everyone picked up and come
together as a team."
Wade finished with seven points, but his 10
rebounds were even more impressive. Hen-
derson turned in 10 points along with six
rebounds.
Frieder was happy with his team's second
half performance, but said that its refusal to
quit in the first half was the difference.

"The team played well in the second
half," said the third-year head coach, who
upped his career record to 41-44. "We could
have folded after the first half, but Jokisch,
Henderson, and (Dan) Pelekoudas came off
the bench and gave us a lift. We were able to
sustain that lift into the second half. When
we caught up with them, we showed some
poise and determination."
Michigan seniors Isaac Person and Leo
Brown, who both got standing ovations at
the beginning of the game, each got into the
contest. Person, who finished out his
Michigan career with two points, came out
of the lockerroom after halftime with his leg
and knee bandaged up and saw no more ac-
tion. Brown got into the game with a minute
left to the delight of the crowd that
screamed "Leo, Leo" one last time.
After the game, Frieder reflected on the
just completed season.
"I don't think anyone picked us to win
more than 16 or 17 games," said Frieder. "I
was dissapointed that we didn't win more
games. Not disappointed with the kids but
with our record. After last year though, our
record this season was a nice accomplish-
ment. We'll have to go on now from where
we are."

Like his coach, Turner was not too upset
about Michigan's season.
"We shouldn't be disappointed," said the
team's co-captain, "We did the best we
could and have to realize we may have
made some mistakes along the way. We im-
proved and learned a lot this year. I'm not
ready to stop playing."

Goodbye Ike and Leo...
.anew era begins
IT WAS THE end of an era.
There will be no more "Le-O, Le-O" chants rever-
berating from the throngs at Crisler Arena. And there
will no longer be number 52 hustling on the court from
any position.
Although the graduation of Leo Brown and Isaac
Person will not be felt that much in the scorebook, their
departure will be noticed in the intangibles; the spirit,
the character and charisma they brought to the games
will be missed.
But the game also marked the beginning of a new
era.
The Wolverines may or may not, depending on an
NIT bid, have closed out the season on a bright note.
They swept the week's series over Iowa and North-
western to close out the season with a respectable 15-13
mark. But what really left Frieder smiling as he exited
the court, was the future of his young Wolverine squad.
"The kids really held up well this game, just as they
have done all season long," the third-year coach said.
"I'm a little disappointed at the record, but not in our
kids. I think we have to go on from here and get bet-
ter."
The man who will most help Frieder's club get bet-
ter, Eric Turner, also sees brighter moments in the
near future.
"We learned a lot and that is what you want," said
the soft-spoken Flint native. "At the same time you
want to be successful and that will come in time."
At certain moments during yesterday's 64-57 victory
over the Wildcats, that time seemed to have come
ahead of schedule. Freshman Paul Jokisch, who
scored 12 points, and Butch Wade, who grabbed ten
rebounds, typified the progress Frieder's players have
made this season. In addition, Tim McCormick's
steadily improving play has laid to rest any doubts
about his physical capabilities.
"I think Butch is getting better all the time," Frieder
said. "Jokisch played his best game. He's playing a lot
more under control and more relaxed."
Jokisch not only gave Michigan fans a lift on the
court, but also off,. as he announced his intentions to
stay with basketball.
"Right now I doubt it (playing football)," Jokisch
said. "I love football, but I love basketball too much to
give it up."
With five improving freshmen, healthy upper-
classmen, and some standout recruits coming next
season, Frieder and his program seem ready to take
off. But the man pushing the buttons is cautious as
usual.
"We start practice October 15, and we'll have to see
what happens from there," said the unflappable
Michigan mentor.
Whereas Frieder is hesitant to make predictions, his
on-the-court quarterback, Turner, is excited about the
upcoming year.
"We're going to be a rounded out team next year,"
said the 6-3 co-captain. "In high school we used to run,
run, run and I liked to lead the show. Hopefully next
season I'll get back to that type of game."
With an improving Turner calling the shots; the
Wolverines look to have a legitimate shot at their first
above-500 Big Ten mark in five years. And while Leo
and Ike have firmly implanted themselves in Michigan
trivia, look for Frieder and company to be leaving a
mark of their own in the upcoming years.

Special to the Daily
PONTIAC - When can you say losing is a major
accomplishment? Well, if the loss means finishing
in third and fourth in the finals of the two-mile run
at the NCAA indoor track and field champion-
ships, as Michigan's Brian Diemer and Gerard
Donakowski did yesterday, it is certainly nothing
to be ashamed of.
"This is a major accomplishment for both of
us," said Diemer, who was clocked in 8:30.49. "My
time was 8:30, that was definitely my best."
THE WOLVERINE distance duo stayed toward
the back of the pack unnoticed throughout most of
the race until Diemer brought the Pontiac Silver-
dome crowd of 15,010 to its feet by bursting into the
lead with three laps to go. Colorado's Mark Scru-
tton and UTEP's Gidamis Shahanga overtook the
Wolverine senior, however, on the final lap and
finished one and two in 8:29.29 and 8:29.72.
Donakowski, who also challenged when Diemer
made his move, finished fourth in 8:32.61.
Indiana's Big Ten mile champ 'Jim Spivey nip-
ped Washington State's Tuwei by .01 seconds
(3:59.95 to 3:59.96) to take the mile crown, while
Tennessee's Willie Gault was the only double win-
ner of the meet, capturing both the 60-yard dash
and 60-yard hurdle titles in 6.18 and 6.98 respec-
tively.
Southern Methodist took the team championship
with 43 points while Michigan tied for the 15th spot
with 10.
Nebraska takes women's title

at the NCAA Championships in Pontiac. Nine
NCAA records fell, but when long-jumper Carol
Lewis leaped 21'6%", her mark became a point of
controversy.
Lewis, from the University of Houston, apparen-
tly had an American record with the effort. She
was understandably upset, however, when of-
ficials would not measure her jump in meters,
which is a necessary procedure for an American
record claim.
SHE HAD SOME strong words for the meet
committee. "The marshall said to measure in
feet. I might have the NCAA record. Big deal! I
wanted the American record and I got cheated,"
said Lewis.
Meanwhile, it was not quite as happy a day for
Michigan's women athletes, although Bullard and
Thornton did well Friday to reach the finals.
Bullard finished in a four-way tie for third in the
high jump after failing in three attempts to clear
six feet. Thornton managed to long jump 19'0%" to
place eighth overall.
Wolverine coach Francie Goodridge had mixed
feelings about the meet. "Joanna and Lorrie were
high points," she said, "but the rest of the meet
was a disappointment." Goodridge was par-
ticularly disappointed with a meet rule that
prevented her athletes from competing in two
events. Because of the rule, Michigan's individual
qualifiers could not compete as a unit in the two-
mile relay. "I know we would have won (the two-
mile relay) but the (NCAA) Championships are
for the athletes," said Goodridge, "and they
should choose their best events."

days early. The runner-up, Michigan
State goaltender Ron Scott, proved
that he deserved it last night before

goal to lead Michigan State to the

the contest and MSU jumped to a 3-0
lead only six minutes into the first
period.
Bowling Green battled back to
