Curtain raised as rebuilding

By JESSE BARKIN
With the pre-season behind them, the
Wolverines finally enter the Big Ten
tournament and the prognosis for coach
Bill Frieder's club is ... hopeful.
Frieder is hopeful that Michigan can
continue to improve as it has thus far
this season; he is hopeful that the
Wolverines stay as healthy as they have
been; and he hopes that the team will
not fall apart after its first conference
defeat.
FOR THE record, the Wolverine
cagers are doing well. After a slow
start which included precarious wins
over Central Michigan and Detroit, the
Wolverines began the year with six
straight victories. And after a disap-
pointing overtime loss to Oklahoma
State, in a game they had in the bag, the
Wolverines rebounded to win their next

three games which brought th
conference record to 9-1. The la

Backing up the pair -is junior Dan
Pelekoudas who has season's worth of
starting experience for the Wolverines.
But though his experience is a plus, the
drop-off in talent is extremely
noticeable when the starters leave the
game. After Pelekoudas there is no one.
Thus, if one of the starters gets in foul
trouble, the team is in trouble. Worse,
of course, is if one of them gets injured.
That would mean disaster. So far only
