Phantom haunts Gridde picks

SPIKFRS SET FOR HALLOWEEN WEEKED

M'

seeks to spook foes

By MICHAEL SALINSKY
The witching hour is nearly upon
us. Ghastly creatures lurk around
every corner.
This weekend, at the IM
Building, creatures will roam the
floor of the main gym. They won't
be ghosts, ghouls, and goblins but
rather, Wildcats, Badgers, and
Wolverines. And their domain will
not be the graveyard or even the dark
woods, but the volleyball court.
Tonight, Northwestern's Wildcats
come to town to face the Michigan
volleyball squad. The Badgers of
Wisconsin take on the Wolverines
"tomorrow night to conclude a
"Halloween weekend of Big Ten
volleyball action.
MICHIGAN'S play in the Big
Ten has not exactly inspired fear in
the rest of the conference. The
Wolverines are a ghastly 2-7, tied for

3 conference record, 19-4 overall,
puts them in a deadlock for second
place with Purdue.
THE WILDCATS expect a
second-place finish to put them in
the NCAA tournament. On paper,
Michigan looks to be a treat for
Northwestern, but the Wolverines
hope to play a trick on the Wildcats
with what would be a major upset.
One of the teams hoping to grab
second place from Northwestern is
Wisconsin. The Badgers are in a
four-way tie for fourth place just one
game out of second and were smiling
like a jack-o-lantern after bumping
off Northwestern last Wednesday,
three games to one.
Seniors Margaret Kaminski and
Tracy Tiffany lead Wisconsin with
187 and 176 kills respectively.
Tiffany is also first in the Big Ten
with 1.79 blocks per game.
Badger head coach Steve Lowe
claimed before the season that
Wisconsin was an "up-and-coming
program in the Big Ten."
Wisconsin's drastic improvement
has made Lowe look like a psychic.
Its 17-6 start is its best since 1979.
DESPITE ITS success,
Wisconsin has exhibited werewolf-
like qualities. Its record on the road
is 4-6. In its own fieldhouse, the
Badgers are fierce, compiling a
shining 13-0 record.
Michigan head coach Joyce Davis
is glad to be playing at home after a

hairy road ,trip last weekend. She
gave some insight into Wisconsin's
road woes when she talked about
Michigan's frightful road trips.
"We don't go in charter buses,"
Davis said. "The players study on
the van and the coaches are driving."
The Wolverines hope the long rides
can do something to spook
Wisconsin and Northwestern.
It will take more than spooks for
Michigan to win this weekend.
Sophomore Karen Marshall needs to
regain her early-season form. Lisa
Vahi must recover from an ankle
injury that made her ghost-like on
the court last weekend.
These ingredients, more
consistent overall play and a dash of
luck may create a witches brew for
one Wolverine upset. To ask for two
victories, even on this strangest of
holidays, may be asking for too
much.

Detroit Lions defensive
coordinator Wayne Fontes was
charged with cocaine possesion and
druken driving Wednesday. Fontes,
who played his college football at
Michigan State, told police that a
phantom (in town for Halloween)
drove his car into a ditch.
Appartently, Fontes and the
phantom were on their way to Ann
Arbor to drop off their Gridde picks.
Said Fontes, "I was just filling out
my Gridde picks when the next thing
I know is my car is in a ditch and
the phantom left, dropping a vial of
cocaine."
At this point details are a little
fuzzy, but it appears that this
phantom continued onto Ann Arbor,
and to the Daily building, where it
sabotaged yesterday's listings for
Griddes.
Some of the games listed are not
going to be played. (Arkansas is not
playing Houston, Wyoming does
not play against UTEP, and
Princeton will not face Harvard.)
These three games will not be
included and only seventeen games
will be listed for this week. The

winner will be the one with the best
winning percentage from the
remaining games.
The phantom remains in Ann
Arbor and the Griddes Intellligence
Agency (GIA) is currently in hot
pursuit. If you have any information
regarding the location of t h e
phantom, please notify us
immediately.
Also, if you have time, bring in
your Griddes picks to the Daily at
420 Maynard some time before 5
P.M. on Friday This weeks winner
will receive a $10 coupon from
Domino's pizza.

eighth place. Michigan will be
.loping to dismember the post-
1eason aspirations of second-place
Northwestern and fourth-place
Wisconsin.
For Michigan, Northwestern has
'to be considered the scarier
opponent. The Wolverines were
embarrassed in Evanston earlier this
season, scoring only four points
while getting swept in three games.
The Wildcats are led by junior
Janine Makar. The six-foot middle
blocker leads the team with 325 kills
and a .;terrifying .357 attack
percentage. Andrea Proos, a native of
Portage, MI, will be looking to
-haunt her old state. The junior setter
leads the Wildcats in assists. Her
11.3 assists per game in conference
play is tops in the Big Ten.
Northwestern, 5-13 in the
conference last season, has turned
into a monster in the Big Ten. Its 6-
