'M' HOOPS OPENS WITH TROPICAL TEST

Blue should surf

By ADAM MARTIN
The Michigan basketball team has
been riding a wave of expectation for
the last few weeks. Today when the
Wolverines open against Virginia
Tech intheChamindade Hawaian
Tournament, the wave might collapse
around itself, but it's more likely to
surge and wipe out everything in its
path.
Chaminade's Silverswords - the
club that knocked off Ralph Sampson
and Virginia, Louisville and Southern
Methodist each of the last three years
- won't get a. chance to hex the
Wolverines with their magic until the
second round.
CHAMINADE opens against Jack

Hartman's Kansas State Wildcats (14-
14 last year), so a Michigan-
Chaminade clash would only occur if
the two both won or lost their first
game.
Playing the Silverswords isn't
Michigan head coach Bill Frieder's
idea of a pleasure trip to Hawaii. "The
local people have this joke about us,"
said Frieder. "They tell their people'
they'll beat the big teams with
Polynesian Paralysis, so you gotta be
ready to fight."
The Wolverines must first fight the

Virginia Tech Hokies, a 1984-85 NCAA
Tournament first round loser. The
head Hokie says the game may be a
one-sided brawl.
"WE DON'T match up very well
with Michigan," said Tech coach
Charles Moir. "We only have three
kids with real experience. After that,
we're very inexperienced and will
have to count on the younger
players."~
Sharpshooting guard Del Curry
(18.2 ppg in 84-85) and forwards Bob-
by Beecher (6-9, 220 pounds) and
Keith Colbert (6-6, 190) are the three
experienced Hokies Moir mentioned.
They lost 118-assist guard Al Young,
and last year's leading score.r (18.5
ppg) Perry Young. Curry, a pre-
season All-America, will supply much
of Tech's offense.
"We have speed and quickness on
our side, but (Michigan) is much
bigger," Moir said. "I'm very con-
cerned about our lack of experience
up the middle."
EXPERIENCE doesn't concern
Frieder. Four seniors - Roy Tarpley,
Butch Wade, Richard Rellford, and
Robert Henderson - lead a
devastating Michigan front line, and
with defensive specialist Gary Grant
and Antoine Joubert in the backcourt,
the Wolverines may drown the
Hokies.
Injuries appear to be the one ripple
in an otherwise calm Michigan pond.
Tarpley, who underwent arthroscopic
surgery on his knee a few weeks ago,
is only at 90 percent and still weak,
according to Frieder. Senior Garde
Thompson, the Wolverines' third
guard, can play only at 80 percent.
"I'm concerned because we've had
so many injuries," Frieder said.
"We've had our starting unit on the

floor (for practice) only six times sin-
ce October 15. Right now, we're a lot
farther behind than we were at this
time last year."
MICHIGAN might also have to
worry about brain waves. Two years
ago, the Wolverines held off Virginia
Tech in the NIT Tournament on two

ds, in a game both clubs could easily
have won. The Hokies of two years.
ago may have a psychologicalredge.
"There'll definitely be a revenge
factor," said Frieder. "We've got to
be ready and respect them."
More importantly, the Wolverines
will have to respect their own efforts.
According to power forward Butch
Wade, defense is Michigan's chief

problem thus far. "We tend to have
defensive lapses, so we have to get
stronger on defense," he said.
"EVERYBODY is like a step slow
on getting in position," added 6-3
guard Gary Grant.
According to Frieder, Michigan's
conversion from offense to defense is
also weak at this time, so the
Wolverine transition might look a lit-
tle choppy.
Still, Virginia Tech's size and inex-
perience, Kansas State's eight new
faces, and Chaminade's loss of five
seniors, three of whom averaged
double figures last season may mean
smooth sailing for Michigan.

ANN ARBOR

By ADAM OCHLIS
With Lake Superior State College posting a 2-4 record at
home and Michigan still looking for its first road victory of
the season, this weekend's hockey series at the Norris
Center in Sault Ste. Marie could well be one of frustration
and ineptitude.
The two teams have not been devasted by their
problems however. Lake Superior currently stands third
in the CCHA standings with a 6-5-1 mark, although being
swept at home by Ohio State and an underrated yet un-.
proven Ferris State team did not help their cause.
THE WOLVERINES meanwhile, are tied for fifth in the
conference and still looking for their first road win since
February 16 when they defeated Ohio State in Columbus.
Both the Soo Lakers' Frank Anzalone and Michigan's
Red Berenson realize the importance of the weekend.
"Every weekend is a big weekend, but it will be
especially important this weekend that we get off to a
good start on our road trip since we have seven of our next
eight games on the road," said Berenson.
"WE'RE GAINING confidence and determination,"
added Michigan's second year head coach. "Plus there is
a real challenge that (the players) know it's not a split
weekend." Both games are in "the Soo."
Anzalone has no pity for the Wolverines and their
troubles.
"As god is my judge, I didn't even know Michigan
hadn't won on the road," said Anzalone. "I don't even look
at that. It doesn't concern me. U of M is coming here to
play the best hockey they're capable of. They're very con-
fident of what they can do and we have to start playing
better on our home ice."
LAKE SUPERIOR'S problems this season show up
clearly in the statistics: the Soo Lakers do not score
enough goals. With only 42 goals scored as a team, only
stellar defensive play and great goaltending from both

Joe Shawhan and Randy Exelby have kept them up in the
standings. While four players share Lake Superior's team
lead in points with 10, Michigan has seven players with.
at least that many.
"We have to start scoring more goals," said a
frustrated Anzalone. "Until our offense gets totally in
gear we're going to continue to struggle.
"We have a theory that when we don't have puck, we
all become defensemen, and that's probably why we've
had so much success defensively. But it sure isn't helping
us score any goals. The thing that could help us is if
Michigan left their goalies home."
EVEN MORE discouraging is that the Lakers have
some proven offensive players in left wingers Nick
Palumbo (14-31-45 last year), Scott Johnson (21-23-44) and
right winger Keith Martin (23-20-43).
Anzalone is still looking for answers.
"We just can't score," he said. "We outplayed Ferris
both nights, and we outshot them both nights, but they
scored a few goals on their opportunities, and we scored
none on our many."
BERENSON insists that while winning the games is im-
portant, playing well up north is the key.
"I think this will be a real building weekend for us if we
can go up there and win one or both of those games," said
Berenson. "Even if we don't win the games but play well,
I think we'll gain some confidence. If we go up and play
poorly and lose then we're right back where we are now
and still wondering if we can win on the road.
"I really think we can go up and play well and win some
games," said the always optimistic Wolverine head man.
The Wolverines will still be without the services of high
scoring forward Tom Stiles who is out with a shoulder
problem, defenseman Dan Capuano (shoulder) and left
wiinger John Bjorkman (mononucleosis).
