Cagers
By BOB POLLARD
One of the advantages of finishing
last in a conference is that there is only
One way to go in the standings - up.
The Michigan women's basketball
team has this working for it as it tries to
improve upon last year when it shared
the Big Ten cellar with Iowa, finishing
2-16 in the conference. The Wolverines
open their - season against Western
Michigan in a non-conference battle
today at Crisler Arena at 4:30 p.m.
Although most of the bad news oc-
cured on the court for the Wolverines,
the off-season wasn't much better.
Shortly after the conclusion of the
season, Sophomore Guard Peg Harte,
Michigan's leading scorer and reboun-
der, announced she was quitting the
team and transferring to Aquinas
College.
THE PLAYERS who will try to pick
up the slack created by Harte's depar-
ture are Orethia Lilly, a guard who
averaged 13.3 points and five rebounds
per game last season, center Wendy
Bradetich (10.6, 6.1), and guard Lori
Gnatkowski (7.4, 2.7).
Head coach Gloria Soluk is hoping for
big things from her returning players.
"We have a great nucleus of returning
kids and we hope to have an outstan-
ding season."
Lilly, a sophomore from East
Cleveland, Ohio, was the second
leading scorer for the Wolverines last
year and figures to be an important cog
in' this season's team, particularly on
offense. Her backcourt partner will be
Gnatkowski, and this tandem will have
to make the big plays if the hoopsters
ope to be competitive in the Big Ten.
Soluk feels Gnatkowski will really come
into her own in this her senior year.
Junior Connie Doutt will also see plenty
of action at the guard spot. Doutt
averaged five points per game last
season.
What puts even more pressure on the
backcourt is the fact that Michigan has
very little experience at the forward
and center spots. Senior Terry Soullier
saw limited action last season,
kaeraging two points and three reboun-
ds per game. Sophomore Amy Rembisz
started nine games and pulled down 3.4

rebounds per outing. The bulk of the
rebounding will fall on the shoulders of
Rembisz and Bradetich. Bradetich was
the second-leading rebounder behind
Harte last season and figures to be the
team leader in that category this year.
Sophomore Sandy Svoboda will also
lend a hand in clearing the boards. Also
returning at the forward position is
Junior Diana Wiley. Wiley is joined in
the front court by sophomore forward
Carolyn Henry and sophomore center
Connie Tudor. Each figures to see in-
creased amounts of playing time from
last season.

COACH SOLUK is hoping that the
pressure of 6-7 freshman center Lynn
Morozko under the basket will in-
timidate the opposing shooters. The
development of Morozko will go a long
way to determine how the Wolverines
will stack up against, the rest of the
league under the boards. Soluk feels
that her freshman giant will be one of
the most exciting players on the team
because of her size and shot blocking
ability.
