THE ZIPS not only avoided the
basement of their conference, but
they managed to emerge on top. For
all their hard work, they now must
face the heavily-favored Wolverines.
The prospects are not good for Akron.
First, the Zips simply do not match
up well with Michigan, particularly
on the front line. When Huggins says
he has the "best 6-3 center in the
country" in Russell Holmes he's ac-
tually speaking about the only 6-3 cen-
ter in the country. Holmes, inciden-
tally, was the last cut from a Pit-
tsurgh Steelers tryout camp last year,
so it's not too tough to figure his style
on the court. Picture Earl Campbell
in a tank top.
Zips' forwards Shawn Roberts and
Marcel Boyce both measure 6-6.
Boyce, a transfer from Carl Elbert
Junior Colege in Oklahoma, is the
main producer for Akron. He
averaged 17.5 points per game during
the season, grabbing an average of
ADD A 5-11 guard to a small front
line and you're looking at a long game
against a Michigan front line whose
smallest member is Richard
"I don't think we can grow fast
enough," said Huggins. "There's a
problem, no question, but anything's
"It's going to be an uphill battle on
the glass, so we'll have to get them
under control on the transition."
The Wolverines have little to worry
about in terms of the Zips' offense.
The objective for Frieder, therefore,
will be to work the ball in to Tarpley
and let the eight-inch height advan-
tage rack up the points.
HUGGINS SAID that Akron would be
playing a man-to-man defense
primarily. If it does, the game will
never be indoubt. The Zips will more
likely do as Frieder anticipates they
collapsing arouna arpiey.
If the guards can get it to Tarpley,
he will eat the Zips alive. If not, the
guards will have to shoot well. If
neither happens, it could be a real
"We're far from being the most
talented team, but we play with a lot
of heart," said Huggins, who's in his
first year at Akron.
After last year's first-round fiasco
against Fairleigh Dickinson, the
Wolverines are careful in hazarding
any optimism regarding the outcome
of today's contest. Frieder is putting
up at least token caution.
"Any time you play someone who
has won 22 games, you're playing
someone who is capable of beating
you," said Frieder.
Should Michigan lose today's game,
the season would be over. If the
Wolverines win, they will advance to
the second round where they will face
the winner of the Iowa State/Miami
(Ohio) game on Sunday. Game time

Gary Grant looks to jam the Zips in today's game at the Hubert H. Hum-
phrey Metrodome in Minneapolis. Grant's quickness and tenacious
defense often result in a crowd-pleasing 'steal and slam,' and such play
has helped the Wolverines to a recent surge.
in Duke s
GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) - John-
ny Dawkins scored 27 points, 20 in
Ie second half, to guide top-seeded
Duke to an 85- 78 victory over upset-
