The Best
(and Worst)
of Wolverine
S s
By Scott G. Miller
THE 1986-87 SEASON MARKED ANOTHER GREAT
year for Michigan sports. While no team won an NCAA
championship, four squads won Big Ten titles. Here are some
of the year's bests and worsts:
BEST ATHLETE: Gary Grant
Faster than a speeding bullet, more powerful than a
locomotive, and able to leap tall buildings in a single bound.
With his spectacular moves on offense and Hands of Steal on
defense, Grant was the superman of college basketball.
BEST FIRST: Alicia Seegert
The catcher is the first Wolverine softball player ever to
be named a First-Team All-American.
BEST FOOTBALL PLAYER: Jim Harbaugh
A Heisman trophy runner-up, Harbaugh was the most
prolific passer in Wolverine history.
BEST BASKETBALL PLAYER: Gary Grant
The junior guard was unanimously elected the Most
Valuable Player by vote of the team. Grant voted for himself.
Who was going to argue with him?
BEST HOCKEY PLAYER: Brad Jones
The senior led the Wolverines in-scoring for the third
straight year.
COACH OF THE YEAR: Jim Richardson
The women's swimming coach won the first ever Big Ten
title for any Michigan women's team.
BEST TEAMS NOBODY'S HEARD OF:
The Swimming Teams
Both the men's and women's teams won Big Ten titles.
WORST TEAM: Women's Basketball
With apologies to the volleyball and field hockey teams.
BEST SINGLE GAME PERFORMANCE:
Garde Thompson
The mad bomber gunned in nine three-pointers against
Navy in the opening round of the NCAA tournament.
BEST DUNK: Loy Vaught
Vaught redefined basketball analyst Dick Vitale's term
"slam, bam, jam" with his destruction of a rim in the
Charlotte Coliseum against Navy. "I hope the bill isn't in
the mail," said Vaught after the game.
WORST PLAY: The Tying the Shoe Layup (as
named by Bill Frieder)

Quarterback Jim Harbaugh, the team's best, also made our favorite prediction. Too bad he didn't make it twice.

The coach didn't put this one on the blackboard at
practice. Thompson dropped the ball back to Grant without
looking. Grant was occupied at the time, tying his Air
Jouberts. Syracuse converted the faux pas for two points.
BEST COMEBACK: John Fisher
This wrestler recovered from a shoulder injury that
sidelined him last season to finish fourth in the NCAAs,
earning All-American status.
BEST GAME: Michigan defeating Ohio State
Nothing brings more joy to football coach Bo
Schembechler than beating the Buckeyes - except maybe
having Ohio State fans eat pizza from his Domino's store in
Columbus.
WORST GAME: Michigan 6, Lake Superior 6 o.t.
The hockey team led the Lakers 5-0 early in the third
period. Lake Superior coach Frank Anzalone pulled his
goaltender with 16 minutes left in the game. The move
resulted in the Laker comeback.
RUNNERUP: The Rose Bowl
Need we say more?
BEST TRANSFER ATHLETE: Ed Nagel
The Pepperdine standout stands as one of the top singles
players in the country and is destined to be All-Big Ten this
year.
