But as the Wolverines return to
Crisler Arena for contests tonight
against Minnesota and Saturday night
with Iowa, their mentor has an even
taller order for them to fill.
"IF WE'RE going to challenge for the
Big Ten title," said Frieder, "then win-
ning a couple at home would be most
important. But we're going to take
them one at a time."
And according to the Michigan head
man, the place to start is against Min-
nesota. The Golden Gophers, who were

before the season started, are currently
perched in the conference runner-up
spot with Iowa with a 2-1 mark (9-4
overall). Michigan is close behind at 2-2
(10-3 overall) and could overtake the
Gophers with a victory. But that
probably won't be an easy task.
Minnesota has shown some incon-
sistency during the season, losing to the
likes of lightweights Detroit, Indiana
State and Purdue. But they have also
come through against tougher opponen-
ts, with upsets of Illinois and Iowa, and
two wins on a west-coast trip over
...off to hot start
"THEY'VE WON some big games at
home, beating Illinois and Iowa," said
Frieder. "And they've won some tough
ones on the road, like out at Arizona and
The Gophers' strong spot is at guard.
The experience and scoring touch of
senior Tommy Davis, and the
quickness and ball handling skills of
freshman Todd Alexander should mat-
ch up well with the skills of Michigan's
backcourt duo of Antoine Joubert and
Davis finished fifth in conference
scoring last season and holds down the
third spot in the Big Ten this year,
averaging 20.7 points per game. The 6-4
team captain played crucial roles in
both of the Gophers' conference wins so
far this year by hitting a last second
bucket to beat the Illini and by
pouring in 18 points against Iowa.
"HE'S BEEN the guy that carried us
most of the way," said Minnesota head
coach Jim Dutcher, a former Michigan
assistant. "He does the scoring. Some
games he doesn't score a lot, but he
scores when we need it."
"Tommy Davis has been playing sen-
sational," noted Frieder. "He's a great,
great basketball player, capable of
scoring anywhere on the court, inside
While Davis has done everything ex-
pected of him this year, Minnesota has
been pleasantly surprised by his back-
court partner Alexander. The 5-11
freshman took over the starting spot
just prior to the beginning of conference
play and has been sensational ever sin-
ce, averaging 12.7 points per game
while handling the Minnestoa offense.
"HE'S GOT good quickness," said
Dutcher, who will be looking for only
his second victory at Crisler in his 10
years as Minnesota top man. "He's not
very big, but he'll be the quickest man
on the floor. He is also good with the
ball. He played 35 minutes against
Illinois without any turnovers, and he
was guarded by Bruce Douglas."
University of Detroit head coach Don
Sicko, whose Titans downed the
Gophers 77-67 before Alexander
became a regular, thinks he makes a
difference in the lineup. "I think that
they play better with him," claimed
Sicko. "He makes them better."
The Wolverines defeated Sicko's
Titans in the season opener, 80-66.
UP FRONT, a real battle could shape
up between Wolverine center Roy Tar-
pley and his Gopher counterpart John
Shasky. Shasky, a 7-footer out of Bir-
mingham Brother Rice, has averaged
7.4 rebounds and 11.3 points per game
and was vital in shutting down big men
Michael Payne and Greg Stokes in the
victory over Iowa.
A real trouble spot for Minnesota
might be the forwards, where
sophomore Kevin Smith and freshman
Mitchell Lee could lack the experience
to go against veteran Wolverines
Rich Rellford and Butch Wade.
"Michigan's front line is definitely
better," said Sicko. "If Michigan is
going to win the game, it's going to be

runs and batted more than .310 five

finestcenter fielders of his time and an
"I'M EXCITED," Pinson said. "I've
always wanted to work with Sparky
Anderson. I know Alex Grammas and
Dick Tracewski and I coached Chet
Lemon and Rusty Kuntz when we were
with the White Sox.
"It's not like I'm going to a strange
place," Pinson said. "I'm really
looking forward to working with a bun-
ch of good people."
Pinson had been a coach with the
Seattle Mariners since 1977, except for
1981 when he coached with the Chicago
