Cards on table; it's anyone's bet
By ADAM OCHLIS
It's that time of year again.
For students it's time to get
ready for finals and put away the
summer clothes until June. But for
the Michigan basketball team, it's
time to play teams nobody knows
about, and, for that matter, nobody
Last year, such notables as
Florida Southern, Youngstown
State, and Chicago State invaded
Crisler Arena. Replacing them this
year are Bowling Green, Illinois-
Chicago, and Ball State.
At 7:30 p.m. tonight, the seven-
game, pre-Big Ten home schedule
tips off as the Ball State Cardinals
come to town.
UNLIKE THE last two years,
however, these games won't be
easy victories. Ball State (1-0)
could pose a threat to Bill Frieder's
Wolverine squad (1-1).
Forget that Michigan is young
and inexperienced. Ball State is a
good basketball team that is
coming off one of its most
successful seasons. Last year's team
(21-10 overall last year, 11-7 in the
Mid-American Conference) received
an automatic bid to the NCAA
tournament by winning the MAC
The Cardinals soon learned what
playing a top-notch opponent is
like as they were quickly eliminated
from the NCAA tourney by
Memphis State, 95-63.
But Ball State, just like
Michigan, will have a different look
LOST TO graduation are
forward Dan Palombizio, the
conference's third-leading scorer of a
year ago, (20.2 points per game)
and one of the MAC's best
backcourt tandems - Larry Reed
(12.7 ppg, 4.5 assists per game)
and Chris Shelton (13.9, 5.5).
Palombizio also grabbed better
than 10 rebounds per game.
It will be a busy night at the
scorers' table as Frieder and Brown
will shuffle players in and out
looking for the right combinations.
"We have a lot of new faces,"
said Ball State head coach Al
Brown. "Seventy percent of our
scoring and rebounding has left, so
we're going to have a lot of players
on the floor who haven't seen much
TWO PLAYERS sure to see
action are junior Derrick Wesley
(11.3 ppg) and junior center Steve
Dziatczak (3.4 ppg).
Wesley, a 6-3 guard, is the only
starter returning from last season,.
and Ball State's only proven scorer.
Dziatczak, a 6-9, 215-pound
bruiser, was inserted into the
starting lineup late in the season
last year, and the Cardinals
promptly strung together seven
straight victories en route to the
Brown hopes to help make up
for the loss of the three graduated
seniors with his fine freshman
class, which includes Rick
Bettenhausen, Rodney Haynes, and
Bettenhausen is a 7-0 245-
pound center who adds muscle to
the Cardinals' front line.
IF HISTORY repeats itself,
college basketball should agree with
Haynes. The 6-1 guard comes to.
