... Will Frieder ever smile
BILL FRIEDER stood in the corner of the Crisler Arena basketball
court and fired a shot through the hoop. He took a few steps to his
left, grabbed another ball and shot again. To his left, Eric Turner banged an
18-footer off the rim.
"Hey E," Frieder shouted. "I thought you could shoot. We'll have to have
Butch Wade give you a few lessons."
The Michigan basketball coach erupted in laughter and dribbled to another
basket. Turner smiled, shook his head, and continued shooting.. .
It's difficult to imagine such behavior out of Frieder. In fact, such a scene
never happens. Frieder conducts basketball practice in a business-like
manner. He stands stone-faced at mid-court as the Wolverines run drills and
scrimmage. He speaks only to commend or criticize his team. He rarely
jokes and never clowns around with his players ...
Enter George Raveling at Iowa. The first-year Hawkeye coach runs a
lively and enjoyable practice session, according to his players.
"Coach Raveling will come out in sweats," said Iowa center Greg Stokes
at last Sunday's Big Ten media luncheon in Chicago. "He'll shoot around
with us and get involved with the drills. He'll do layups and tip-ins. He gets
out there with us and it's fun. I've never seen that before."
"After practice we'll be shooting free throws and he'll say something like,
'Make this one and you get a date with (Steve) Carfino.' He'll joke around
with you and he keeps things loose. It's a real relaxed atmosphere.
Of course, tomfoolery isn't the only activity the Hawkeyes practice.
Raveling has his serious moments, too.
coach apologizes. I can tell you right
now that just isn't going to happen."
Michigan coach Bill Frieder, who
said Burton was "dismissed" from his
club just prior to the 1981 season, said
he was not surprised by Burton's ac-
"Of course I'm not surprised,"
Frieder said. "We had the same

practice, he'll yell at you plenty,"
said Carfino of his coach. "He

Baseball union fires Moffett
NEW YORK (AP) - Ken Moffett was fired as exec-
tive director of the Major League Players
Association yesterday, less than a year after he was
elected as the union head, three separate sources told
The Associated Press.
One of the sources, who asked not to le identified,
said Marvin Miller, the man whom Moffett suc-
ceeded, would act as interim executive director.
Former Miller aide Richard Moss, now a player
agent, later confirmed the firing and Miller's interim
Two sources said Moffett's firing was the result of a
political battle within the union with Miller and
players association counsel Don Fehr on one side and
Moffett on the other.
'It would have taken those two men Fehr and Miller
to do it," said a source with contacts in the players'
union. However, Moss said to depict Moffett's firing
in a political way "portrays it in a false way."
Raveling has good reason to placate his Hawkeyes. Iowa's team contains
some of the best players in the Big Ten, let alone the nation.
Stokes won a gold medal as a member of the U.S. basketball team at the 1983
Pan American Games and is a probable member of the nation's 1984 Olym-
pit team. The 6-10, 220-pound junior averaged 17.7 points and 7.2 rebounds per
game last year to earn second-team all-Big Ten honors.
The Hawkeyes have a second tower up front in 6-11 junior Michael Payne.
Possessing excellent mobility and a fine shooting touch, Payne complements
Stokes with career averages of 11.0 points and 7.5 rebounds per game.
"I don't think you have to be a Harvard scholar to know we have to get the
ball to Payne and Stokes if we're going to win," said Raveling.
Iowa's lineup, however, doesn't end at Payne and Stokes. Carfino shoots as
well as any guard in the conference. Sophomores Brad Lohaus and Andre
Banks, two probable starters, are former high school all-Americans, as are
freshmen Johnny Fort, Dave Snedeker and Robert Ursery. Junior Kenny
Fullard was a junior college all-American last year.
All of these players combine to make Iowa, along with Michigan State, a
favorite to win the Big Ten championship. Raveling's problem is transfor-
ming talent into victories. The same basic conglomeration of players
finished fifth in the conference last year under coach Lute Olson. Raveling's
enthusiasm might propel the Hawkeyes to the top.
"Coach Olson thought the players were mature enough to motivate them-
selves," said Carfino. "Coach Raveling is a motivator. He likes to yell. He
likes to get up and get the fans into the game. I think that helps us to become
more enthusiastic, too."
