lightly away from a big-man

tansformed his offense into more of a

WINTER SEMESTER SPECIAL

rough times behind him

By PAUL HELGREN
Watching the development of Roy
Tarpley into a formidable force on the
court this year, it's easy to forget that
just last season he was a basketball
wallflower watching from the sidelines,
lost and all but forgotten in the can't-
play-'em-all lineup shuffles.
Unfulfilled self-expectations and a
familiar spot on the bench combined to
frustrate the then-freshman Tarpley.
After an impressive 17-point debut in
the '82 opener against Akron, the
sinewy 6-10, 195-pound, center
struggled and found himself relegated
to part-time duty behind beefier team-
mates. He sulked, partly in response to
his lack of floor time.
"MY ATTITUDE was real bad last
year;" Tarpley admitted.
"He was moody," said his coach, Bill
Frieder. "And he wasn't working on the
things he should have been working
on:"
But it didn't last. Rather than con-
tinue sulking, the honorable mention
high' school All-American vowed to
adopt a more positive attitude and to
devote all his energy to becoming a bet-
ter ballplayer.
IN OTHER words, 18-year-old Roy
Tarpley did some growing up.
"I talked to myself," he said, "and
said in order to play and be successful
I'd have to work harder and get a better
attitude. You know, to love the school
and love the coaches and like that."
Part of Tarpley's commitment to
hard work included playing in the local
Sandy Sanders summer basketball
league. Tarpley excelled and was
named most valuable player of the
} league.
"HE WORKED real hard," said San-
ders, a college referee who runs, the
league. "He worked out two,, three
times a day, shooting in the morning
and playing in the afternoon. He would
come to every game hoping some other
player wouldn't show up so he could
play in his place . . . He was very
hungry."
Armed with a fresh attitude, and with
a summer of hard work behind him,
Tarpley arrived at opening-day prac-
tide a new man. The change did not go.
unnoticed.
Said teammate Tim McCormick,

"Last year if he got knocked around in
practice he might pout about it. This
year he's working harder and he's
taking criticisms from the coaches bet-
ter."
FRIEDER agreed. "His attitude this
year has been super. He's been working
real hard in practice. We had some
problems with him last year, but he's
coming along super."
The "problem" days of last season
are a distant memory for Tarpley now.
Averaging over 20 minutes per game,
the native New Yorker leads the team
in blocked shots with 26, is second in

the time to block shots. I love blocking
shots. I think I have the whole team
scared to come in the paint."
NOT CONTENT to be just a shot-
blocker, Tarpley has made great
strides on the offensive end of the court
as well. His quickness allows him to
cruise by bigger and slower opponents
and his jump shot and hook are more
reliable now, too. But, as many Crisler
Arena observers can tell you, it is Tar-
pley's dunks - especially the new
alley-oop from Eric Turner on the fast
break - that bring even Michigan's
gray-haired alumni to their feet.
Turner initially hesitated to try the

ner chose to throw it straight to Tar-
pley, who traveled. But the second time
according to Tarpley, "He looked at
me, I gave him the signal - 'Yeah, go
for it.'
Tarpley responded with a vicious
slam, the Crisler crowd responded with
enthusiastic applause, and the
Wolverines responded with a scoring
run.
Plays like that make Frieder glad he
looked beyond the 6-6 toothpick he first
saw playing in Detroit summer basket-
ball leagues two-and-a-half years ago. It
also makes him thankful for the turn of
events that brought Tarpley to
Michigan.
Splitting his childhood between New
York and Mobile, Ala. with his gran-
dparents, Tarpley moved to Mobile in
his sophomore year of high school. Two
unimpressive years of basketball left
him looking for a new avenue. That's
when an uncle from Detroit, Floyd Ed-
wards, suggested he come there and
play summer basketball. Frieder saw
him play and the rest, as they say, is
history.
"When I first saw him he was only
about 6-6, 6-7," Frieder remembered.
"But he had good talent. He could
jump, he could shoot . . . He's bigger
now and he's going to get bigger yet."
BIGGER YES, but how much better
will he get? Some say the sky is the
limit.
"He's gonna be a great one, there's
no doubt about that," said Frieder.
"His potential is unbelievable," said
referee Sanders, who has seen a lot of
great players in his day. "He can go a
lot farther. He's still just a babe in the
woods."
Heaven help Wolverine opponents
when that "babe" finally grows up.

rebounds with a 6.9 average and has
been consistent on offense, scoring 8.1
per game.
"His improvement has been
phenomenal," said Frieder. "His con-
cept of the game is much better. He's
much more effective with the ball. He's
a better rebounder, better defensively.
And he's already a great shot-blocker."
AH, YES, blocking shots. It's Tar-
pley's forte and there is nothing he
seems to enjoy as much as snuffing the
bad guys. And why not? Few players in
the country make 'em eat leather better
than Tarpley.
Against Dayton he played like a
hockey goaltender, swatting six shots
harmlessly away. And though Tarpley
was not credited with any rejections in
last Saturday's 53-49 win over Iowa, his
intimidating wingspan forced the
Hawkeye big men to alter - and miss
- their shots.
"I think I have a lot of players in-
timidated because they have to look for
me," said the graduate of Detroit's
Cooley High. "I'm weak-side helping all

play because he has seen too many of
his passes go off teammates' finger
tips, but Tarpley convinced him to give
it a try.
"He (Turner) threw it to me a few
times in practice, but he was like, 'Man
that'll be a turnover for me.' He told me
he didn't want to do it 'cause what if I
miss it. I told him don't think, just
throw it."
AGAINST Northwestern an oppor-
tunity for the alley-oop arose, but Tur-
