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
eight rebounds.
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
Rellford.
"I don't think we can grow fast
enough," said Huggins. "There's a
problem, no question, but anything's
possible.
"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
game.
"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
for Sunday's game has not been
determined.

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
.35-78 win
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-
minded Mississippi Valley State in the
first round of the NCAA East Regional
basketball tournament yesterday.
The Blue Devils raised their record
33-3, best ever for an Atlantic Coast
onference basketball team, but not
before the Delta Devils took seven-
point leads on two occasions. The last
time was a 44-37 edge on two baskets
at the start of the second half by Mack
Ferguson.
Aided by a trapping zone defense
that forced 11 Duke turnovers, Valley
had led 19-12 early in the first half.
Ferguson scored 12 of his teams fir-
st 14 points in the second half and
valley took a 54-49 edge with 14:24
left.
Duke cut the gap to 54-53 on two free
throws and a follow shot by Danny
Ferry. After Joe McKinley scored for
Valley, Mark Alarie scored six
straight points to give Duke the lead
for good at 59-56 with 11:28 left.

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - Long-
*inge gunner Mark Price led a 12-0
scoring surge over a four-minute span
of the second half yesterday to lead
ixth-ranked Georgia Tech to a 68-53
victory over unexpectedly tough
Marist in the opening round of the
NCAA Southeast Regional basketball
tournament.
-During the first six minutes of the
second half, Marist erased a five-
point halftime deficit to hold a 38-37
ad over Tech, the top seed in the
outheast Regionals.
Tech's John Salley tied it at 40-all on
a three-point play, then Price went to
work from the 20-foot range, and
Marist went cold. It was 52-40 before
Marist, making its first NCAA tour-
nament appearance, could score
again.
Price finished with 20 points, get-
ting eight of Georgia Tech's first 14
points.
