Marching mightily
M' looks for twelfth straight

By SCOTT SHAFFER
.In the face of adversity, the Michigan basketball
team just keeps rolling along, piling up the wins.
The Wolverines, 12-1, will try for their twelfth
consecutive victory against Minnesota tomorrow night
.at Crisler Arena. It will be Michigan's Big Ten home
opener and its second game without first-year guards
Sean Higgins and Demetrius Calip, who were ruled
academically ineligible.
The team, however, is getting no sympathy from
the Golden Gophers. "It's unfortunate that they lost the
two players, but this is a great ball club. They've got
another nine or ten players that are going to be tough
to beat," said head coach Clem Haskins.
EVEN MICHIGAN coach Bill Frieder believes
there will be no lingering effects on the rest of the
club. "They know we're going to miss Sean, but this
is not going to be the last time that type of thing hap-
pens. You have to go on, work harder and surge for-
ward," he said.
In preparing for the big surge, Frieder has mapped
out his game plan. "We can't allow Minnesota to
control the tempo or take the shots they like because
they are a fine shooting team. We have to extend them
beyond what their natural range is," he said.
The Gophers are shooting 50.6% from the field and
average 78.4 points a game. They are shooting 44.7
from three-point range, second in the Big Ten.
Minnesota, 6-4 before last night's game with Illi-
nois, is in the unenviable position of beginning con-

ference play against two of the best teams in the
league. "First you get run over by a Mack truck, then
here comes a freight train to finish the job," said
Haskins, now in his second year at Minnesota.
THE WOLVERINES should be wary of Melvin
Newbern, the Gophers' leading scorer. The 6-4 sopho-
more guard is averaging 14.1 ppg. Newbern is joined
in the backcourt by Kim Zurcher (7.9 ppg).
6-7 Willie Burton is second on the Gophers in scor-
ing (10.1 ppg) but his status is clouded by an ankle
injury. Should he be unable to start, he will be replaced
by Tim Hanson.
Richard Coffey, the team leader in rebounds (8.3 per
game) and the third-leading scorer (9.7 ppg) is the other
starting forward and Jim Shikenjanski (8.2 ppg) starts
at center.
Leading the Michigan charge will be Gary Grant,
fresh off a 31-point performance in the win over
Northwestern on Wednesday. Grant upped his scoring
average to 23.6 ppg, tops in the Big Ten.
At times Wednesday, Frieder employed a three-guard
offense consisting of Grant, Rumeal Robinson and
Kirk Taylor, who was pressed into duty as Higgins'
replacement. Taylor netted seven points and earned his
coach's praise. "Kirk was ready to go and much more
poised than I thought he might be," said Frieder.
While Taylor is sure to see action against Min-
nesota, Frieder will not commit to using the three-
guard offense again, saying only that he would let the
game situation dictate his substitutions.
