Bradley takes its mark for
Wolverines in NIT opener
By SCOTT G. MILLER
Instead of a jump ball to start
tonight's basketball game between
Michigan and Bradley, the referee
could line up the players at half
court and fire a starter's gun.
The Preseason National
Invitational Tournament opening
round contest at Crisler Arena at 8
p.m. may resemble a track meet.
The Braves, the defending Missouri
Valley Conference Champions,
employ a fast-break style under new
coach Stan Albeck.
"We are going to push the ball
up the court every time we get it,"
said Bradley guard Anthony
Manuel. "Push it, push it, push it."
THE BRAVES are as run-and-
gun as they are emphatic. Albeck
has already implemented the same
high-scoring system he employed
as a seven-year NBA head coach.
The Bradley graduate replaced
controversial Dick Versace, who
after going 32-3 resigned last
season due to recruiting violations.
The Bradley's wide-open offense
and the new NCAA three-point shot
will keep the Braves' scorekeeper
busy. In a recent exhibition victory
over Athletes Fighting Substance
Abuse, Albeck's squad smoked the
nets for 10 of 26 three-pointers,
shooting up 110 points. With
Albeck's offensive philosophy, the
hundred point plateau will be
within shooting range all season.
"There will be plays set for the
three-pointer. But if your open,
you can shoot it anyway," said
Manuel. "We don't have any
limitations for us not to shoot the
ball. The three-pointer is only 19-9
and that is not too far at all."
IN ORDER to slow Bradley,
Wolverine guards Gary Grant, Garde
Thompson, and Antoine Joubert
must contain Manuel and his
backcourt mate, junior All-
American candidate Hersey
Hawkins. Hawkins averaged 18.7
points per game last season.
"I am just going to go out and
see how good a defensive player
Grant is," said Hawkins.
The 6-3 shooting guard is one of
three returning Braves' starters
along with forwards Donald Powell
and Trevor Trimpe from a squad
that lost to National Champion
Louisville in the second-round of
the NCAA tournment earlier this
"I THINK as of now we are
not as strong as last year's team,"
said Hawkins. "But by the middle
of the season when we really start
to get to know each other, it will
be a better team."
Highly-touted 6-8 center Luke
Jackson rounds out the Bradley
starting lineup. The freshman will
battle Michigan's Mark Hughes,
another first-time starter.
Strong play from Hughes, a 6-8
sophomore, is critical to the
survival of the Wolverines' three
guard attack. The Muskegon native
and sophomore Glen Rice (seven
po and three rebounds) will carry
the bulk of the rebounding load.
"I'M JUST glad they (Bradley)
are here," said Michigan head coach
Bill Frieder. "It will be an
excellent test early for us."
For the Braves, it will be the
only national tournament test of the
season. Bradley is currently on
NCAA probation for one season
and cannot participate in a
"I'm disappointed (about the
probation) because I feel Bradley is
moving upwards in basketball,"
said Hawkins. "Then they (the
NCAA) snap something like that
on you. We are looking to prove
we can play at the national level in
The Bradley-Michigan winner
will compete in the second round
on Monday with the time, site, and
opponent to be determined.
'M' BATTLES N'WESTERN, WISCONSIN:
... gunning for Grant
By ERIC MAXSON
It may be clichd, but it's true:
hope springs eternal.
And for the Michigan volleyball
team, hope may be all that's left as
they face weekend matches against
conference rivals Northwestern and
Wisconsin at the I.M. Building
with disappointing 1-13 Big Ten
The only hope is not only for
the coming years. The Wolverines
would dearly love to win their
remaining four conference matches
and finish a respectable seventh. It
seems unlikely, but coach Joyce
Davis insists it can be done.
TO BEGIN the task, Michigan
faces off against Northwestern
tonight, against whom the
Wolverines haverecorded their only
Big Ten win. When the two teams
played at Evanston, the Wildcats
"had a lot of problems," according
to Davis. Sine only three weeks
have passed since then, "they
haven't been able to change that
much," she says.
Northwestern could present some
difficulties, however. Michigan will
have to try and stop middle hitter
Janine Makar. Other leading players
for the Wildcats are middle hitter
Stephanie Kammes and outside
hitter Shelley Brzozowski, who
both played well before against
Overall, Northwestern is a good

set to net foes
serving team with the ability to
choose their shots well. They aren't
powerful or large, however. Also,
according to Davis, "They don't
move real well in the backcourt."
ON SATURDAY, Wisconsin
rolls into town. A month ago in
Madison, the Wolverines played
one of their worst matches of the
year in losing to the Badgers in
straight games. Wisconsin is on
Blue turf now, however, and the
tables could turn if Michigan can
reverse the execution problems that
plagued them in Madison.
Davis' strategy is simple.
"We're going to try and serve in the
court and pass on our own side of
The Badgers will retaliate with
outside hitters Liz Potempa and
Connie Venske the two who hurt
the Wolverines most in the
previous match. Like Northwestern,
however,.Wisconsin isn't large or
Both teams, Davis says, "are
very beatable." Neither will take
strong control of the match.
Two wins this weekend would
give the Wolverines momentum as
they make their final run against
Purdue and Illinois. It will probably
take wins over both to finish
