Moroz
By BARB MCQUADE
All of Lynn Morozko's team look up to
her. Not only do the members of the
Michigan women's basketball team
respect the freshman's high school
athletic credentials, but they also fall
short of Morozko's 6-7 height.
Morozko, who hails from Westlake,
Ohio, does indeed present dominating
potential. Last year she averaged ap-
proximately 18 points, 14 rebounds, and
four blocked shots per game for
Westlake High School. In Michigan's
first two games, she is averaging five
points, four rebounds, and three
blocked shots.
HEAD COACH Gloria Soluk hopes
that Morozko will be able to keep up
those kinds of statistics in college.
Soluk is counting on the freshman to
take charge under the boards.
"She's our center," said Soluk. "It's
too early to say whether she'll start or
not, but we're hoping she'll see a lot of
playing time. We're really looking for
her to be a dominating inside force."

school and college," said Soluk, Morozko has seen a lot of playing
"especially the level of play. High time in Michigan's first two games, and
school players don't completely under-
stand defense and screening
techniques. They're not usually in top
condition, either. They have to get used
to going hard for 40 minutes."
The transition doesn't seem to bother .
Morozko, although she does notice a dif-
ference in college athletes.
"I thought my teammates in high
school were good, but I came here and
everybody can shoot and handle the
ball so well," said Morozko.
"Sometimes you don't think you can
play with them, but you've just got to
shake it off."
NOT ONLY must Morozko adapt to
the higher level of competition, she also
has to get used to Soluk's rigorous prac-
tice schedule. After a month of con-
ditioning, the women began regular
practices in October, spending as much
as two-and-a-half hours on the court six
days a week.
Morozko seems to have made the
adjustment to university life and enjoys
going to school at Michigan. She did
consider enrolling at South Carolina
and Cincinnati, but feels she made the
right decision.
"This is a better school academically
and we're going to have a good basket-
ball program," said Morozko.
"Besides, I really like the people."

Soluk believes the freshman will
materialize into the intimidating center
she hopes for. If that belief is right,
Michigan could be a contender ir'.he

After all, not many players can str

NEW YORK (AP) - The ratings fa

CBS one year ago, the first year thl,

DONN BERNSTEIN, ABC's coot,

same factors may be to blame for th
decline in the college ratings.
