Upon finishing final exams, the
menrs swimming team will head for
Florida, but it won't be for a
vacation.
"We're going to eat, sleep, and
swim," says head coach Jon
Urbanchek.
The team will hold Christmas
training camp in Boca Raton and
participate in the U.S. Open Invita-
tional in Orlando.
The Wolverines, currently ranked
sixth nationally, will be joined in
Orlando by No. I ranked Texas and
four other top ten teams. The Open
will also feature several of the best
international swimmers.
Winning the U.S. Open meet is
not Urbanchek's main goal. He says
the team is coming off of final ex-
ams, and has not had time to train
for the meet. Furthermore, Michigan
swimmers are not accustomed to the
Olympicsize 50 meter pool which
will be used at the meet (NCAA
events are held in 25 meter pools).

weekend, the Wolverines place their 5-2 home record against Miami at Yost Ice Arena.

By KEN GOLDBERG
The Central Collegiate Hockey Association schedule is at the
halfway point, and the standings read: Michigan, 7-9, 14 points, sixth
place and Miami, 4-11-1, nine points, last place. From the looks of
things, this weekend's series at Yost Ice Arena is not a very exciting
matchup.
But don't tell that to Michigan and Miami.
The Wolverines still have a shot at a fourth place league finish and
home field advantage in the CCHA playoffs, and the Redskins only
need to move up one notch in the standings to qualify for post-season
play.
"This series is so much more important than it seems on the
surface," said Michigan sophomore Rob Brown, the team's leading
scorer with 24 points (12 goals). "Sure, Miami is in last place. But
they play us tough.
"THEY'RE HOT and we have to play well. It's crucial for us to
bear down and come out flying from the first period on. We have to
start picking up points in the standings."
Said Miami head coach Bill Davidge: "It's going to be a tough
series. It's critical for both teams to make a move in the standings."
Back in October, the Wolverines travelled to Miami's Goggin Ice
Arena in Oxford, Ohio. The'Redskins ability to skate and hit with
Michigan when the teams first met last Oct. 16-17, forced the
Wolverines into many mistakes in a 6-3 defeat. But Michigan bounced
back to win, 4-3, in the series closer.
"Miami played us tough when we went down there," said Michigan
head coach Red Berenson. "We certainly can't take them for granted."
With a win and a tie last weekend at Ferris State, Miami should be
prepared for the Wolverines. And while its 63 goals is a league low,
captain Mike Orn (15 goals, seven assists in league play) leads the
conference with four hat tricks and was last week's co-CCHA player-of-
the-week for his eight point performance against the Bulldogs.
INJURIES HAVE hampered the Wolverines this season. Senior
winger Brad McCaughey (18 points) should see action after missing
most of the Lake Superior State series and sitting out last weekend
against Boston College with a sore back. Sophomore Bryan Deasley is
just getting into the groove after missing the season's first twelve
games with a broken ankle.
The latest Wolverine casualty is forward Ryan Pardoski, out
indefinitely with a leg injury.
Michigan played well in taking a pair at home from Boston College
last weekend, improving its home record to 5-2. The Wolverines home
success will be contrasted by the Redskins strong road record. They are
2-2-1 on the road, including a victory over first-place Michigan State.
"I'm pleased with our overall play, but it's time to start picking up
points," said Berenson.
