Versatility-

Freshman hoopster puts spice into her life
with performances both on and off court

f

By SHELLY HASELHUHN
Whether she's got her pumps or
high tops on, freshman Leslie
Spicer knows where she's going
and how to get there.
Though her friends label her as a
fun and easy-going person, the
starting forward on the Women's

basketball team also exhibits a
sharp intellect. Spicer paints the
portrait of a serious student-athlete.
The former Prep Academic All-
American has had to balance her
time between school and basketball.
She thrives on the pressure her.

achievements to concentrating on
each moment separately.
"WHEN I COME to practice,
I try to have everything else out of
my mind," said Spicer. "When I'm
out of the gym, I'm devoted only to
my schoolwork, and I feel myself
working even harder this term."
Inspired by the ficticious lawyer,
Perry Mason, Spicer's goal in life
is to sit on the bench, the bench of
law.
"I want something stable in life.
I watched Perry Mason everyday
over the summer and I know I can
do it. Basketball will become just a
hobby after (I am finished with)
school."
Because of her demanding
schedule, Spicer's dormmates don't
see much of her, but they say she
doesn't go without being heard.

The multi-talented Albion native
has a ball off the court by singing,
dancing, acting, and playing the
piano. Spicer continues to nurture
her musical abilities by singing in
her dorm room and at her home
church where she is an active
member.
"SHE HAS A beautiful
voice," said one girl on her hall.
"We'll be studying and we'll hear
her through the walls. When she
sings, everyone listens."
"I want to keep working with
my voice," said Spicer. "If I stop
singing or playing, I don't know
what will happen to me. I don't
want to lose those talents."
Performing before crowds was
not unfamiliar to Spicer when she
took over center stage at Crisler
Arena. Her mom was pushing her
toward ballet, but for the tomboy
growing up with three athletic big
brothers, basketball would
inevitably win out.
Spicer is still in awe about her
Michigan scholarship. She always
wanted to attend a highly academic
college, but never dreamed
basketball would pave the way.
"IT'S SUCH an honor to be
here and be an athlete too,"
exclaimed Spicer. "Every time we
passed this exit (on the
expressway), I'd say, 'I want to go

there someday' but I never thought
I'd get here."
Not only is Spicer an impact
person, but an impact player.
Spicer stole the high-scoring
honors twice from star teammate
Lorea Feldman earlier this season.
On one of those occasions, she
captured a career- and game-high 22
points against Michigan State,
leading the team to one of only two
conference wins.
"She is an inspired player with a
good attitude, a lot of hustle and
enthusiasm," said head coach Bud
Van De Wege. "She is a very
focused individual, with discipline
in academics and basketball."
One reason for Spicer's on-the-
court success is her emphasis on
team goals rather than individual
achievements.
"I like the fact that we won the
track relay, we won the talent
contest, we won the game-not
me," said Spicer. "I put my all into
everything, but you can't do much
alone. You've got to have some
help from someone."
The other reason? "She's a
natural," said her high school
coach, Charles Henderson. "She'll
be a success at whatever she does,
whether that be playing ball or just
reporting the weather."

Swimmers hope depth leads t4
second-straight Big Ten crown

By CHRIS GORDILLO
Though swimming is primarily
an individual sport, Michigan head
swimming coach Jon Urbanchek
says it will take a "total team -

effort" for the men's swimming and
diving team to successfully defend
their conference title.
The heavily-favored Wolverines
began their defense of the title

Michigan has a perfect dual dieet
record this season and is ranked
sixth nationally by the Swimmipg
Coaches Association. However,
Iowa and its triple-winner at fAst
year's Championships John Daey
will provide stiff competition.
THE HAWKEYES wil be
trying to avenge an earlier-season
72-41 dual meet loss to " he
Wolverines.
"The dual meet season is a god
indication of how we'll do her ,"
said Urbanchek. "Stars win du~al
meets, (but in the Championships)
the meaning of team effort reatly
comes into play."
Expected to lead the Wolverines
are senior co-captains Joe Parker
and Dave Kerska, and freshnan
standout Brent Lang. ilut
Urbanchek is also counting on his
team's depth to help capture its
second consecutive Big Ten crown.
In particular, he hopes the
Wolverine's depth in the dist ace
freestyle events, the 500and 1, -
yard freestyles, will give the team ia
secure hold on the championship.
"We're looking for them to coae
through for us," said Urbanchek of
his distance swimmers.
