For Wolverines

to win...

It doesn't take a math major or a
statistician to realize what Glen
Rice means to the Michigan
basketball team.
In Monday's game against
Western Michigan, the sophomore
forward shot one-for-10 from the
floor, scored just two points, and
played probably the worst game of
his brief college career.
In last night's contest against
Kent State, Rice scored 26 points
on 12-of-16 shooting and pulled
down 12 rebounds.
The Wolverines gained a split in
the two games. Guess which game
they won?
"When he's off we lose, and he
was off against Western and we
lost," said Garde Thompson.
"Tonight he was on and he got us
going."
Rice is expected to pour in the
points this season because of the
inexperience of Michigan's other
frontcourt players. Until Monday's
game, he had done what was asked
in that department, scoring in
double figures in four of five
games, including three 20-plus
outings.
Against the Broncos, though,
Rice missed all five of his first half
shots and then played tentatively
during the final 20 minutes. Both
Rice and Michigan coach Bill
Frieder said the Flint native was
scared to shoot after getting off to
the poor start.
"I don't like missing and when I
miss it gets me down," said Rice.
"And when I missed five in a row I
got really down on myself."
Coaches and players agree that poor
shooting nights do occur. However,
with Frieder's three-guard offense,
which emphasizes the outside shot

even more, Rice's value to the team
increases.
After Gary Grant, Antoine
Joubert, and Thompson burned the
nets for 80 of Michigan's 123
points Saturday against Illinois-
Chicago, Western Michigan
brought its defense out and didn't
let Michigan shoot the open
jumper. That left Rice and center
Mark Hughes virtually uncovered
underneath the basket. The strategy
worked to the tune of a 62-59
Bronco victory, as Michigan's
guards shot a season-low 38
percent.
Kent State tried the same
philosophy last night, and Rice
burned the Golden Flashes.
If defenses continue to leave the
inside wide open, Rice, who
averaged 28 points a game in high
school, will have to take advantage.

Michigan will have to rely heavily on sophomore forward Glen Rice this
season. Rice scored just two points in Monday's loss to Western
Michigan, but led the Wolverines with 26 points in last night's win over
Kent State.

All but 'M'
belly u at
EMU meet
By CHRIS GORDILLO
At the EMU Invitational this
past weekend, the Michigan men's
swim team was the big fish in a
pool of minnows.
The Wolverines captured first
place at the two day meet,
dominating the other teams. Host
team Eastern Michigan finished 205
points behind the Wolverines, with
Oakland University, Western
Kentucky, and Kenyon University
following, respectively.
"We were swimming against
teams not in our league," said head
coach Jon Urbanchek. Obviously.'
The Wolverines won all but one of
the 18 events on Friday and
Saturday.
The Wolverines left their mark
-n the books with six new pool
records at EMU's Olds-IM Pool.
Marty Moran had an exceptional
:Weekend, breaking three pool
rcords with winning times in the
200-yard butterfly (1:47.49) the
100-yard butterfly (49.81) and as
ibe butterflier for the 400-yard
piedley relay. Moran, Mike Creaser,
JIn-Erick Olsen, and co-captain
-Dave Kerska swam a speedy
:3:20.65, smashing the old record by
ibree seconds. Moran's time in the
'.00 butterfly qualified him for the
NCAA Championships in April.
Kerska and Creaser also left their
:imes in the record books. Kerska
;eptured both first place and a pool
.ecord in the 200-yard freestyle with
is time of 1:38.69, and swam the
T1eestyle leg on the pool record-
1reaking 400 medley relay. Kerska
iaso contributed to the record swim
,f the 400-yard freestyle relay.
kerska's time of 44.50 in the 100-
.yard freestyle qualified him for the
NCAA's.
Creaser set a pool record in the
.100 backstroke with a 51.62 and
followed up the performance with a
backstroke lead-off leg of 51.3, a
n~ew Michigan varsity record, in the
400 medley relay.
