Wolverines look to move past second round
M hopes t

Special to the Daily
Salt Lake City - If Michigan head coach Bill
Frieder needs to know anything about his next oppo-
nent in. the NCAA tournament, all he needs to do is
call Purdue's head coach Gene Keady.
The Boilermakers found out all they wanted to know
about Florida in last year's second round when they
were smashed by the Gators, 85-66. Earlier this year
Florida also romped over big Ten opponent Ohio State,
in Columbus, 102-69, and Michigan State 83-59.
Now, Michigan will be trying to help the Big Ten
payback the Southeasetern Conference foe in today's
West Regional game at the Jon M. Huntsman Center
"They are talented, impressive, and when they put it
together, they are going to be awfully difficult beat,"
THE WOLVERINES will be trying to advance
to the final 16 for the first time in the last four years of
tournament play. Florida reached that round last year
before bowing out of the tournament with a loss to the
national runner-up, Syracuse.
"Michigan is certainly better than pretty good," said
Florida's coach Norm Sloan. "They are very powerful
so we know it's going to be a tough ball game, but we
look forward to it."
This year, both teams enter the second round after
similar opening victories. Each team let big leads slip
away and had to hang on at the end to advance.
The Wolverines, 25-7, led Boise St. by 18 points
with 12 minutes to play, but made only three field-
goals the rest of the game and escaped with a 63-58
win after the Broncos' missed a potential tying three
point attempt in the final seconds.
FLORIDA, 23-11, jumped to a 13 point lead over
St. Johns in the first half of their game and never
trailed. However, the Redmen fought back to tie the
game for the first time on a Greg "Boo" Harvey jump-
shot with 15 seconds left.
Without any timeouts, Florida came down the court
and guard Vernon Maxwell calmly sank a long three
pointer to save the game and give the Gators' a 62-59
Maxwell, a 6-5 senior guard, is the Gators top
player. Rumeal Robinson will draw the assignment of
trying to contain Maxwell, who averaged 20.2 points
per game this year.
"You just have to make sure he doesn't get by you
and create problems," Robinson said. "If I can keep
him outside it will allow the big guys to play tough
inside and stay out of foul trouble."
The Wolverines big men will be especially impor-
tant in this game because of 7-2 Dwayne Schintzius.
The sophomore center has been erratic, but Michigan
has had trouble stopping big centers, and Schintzius
has the potential to have a high-scoring game.
Michigan will be trying to take advantage of
Florida's lack of depth by pushing the ball up the court
and creating a fast paced game.
The Gators had only eight players dressed against
St. Johns but will have one more today. Guard Ronnie
Montgomery returns to the starting lineup after being
suspended for a fight in the SEC tournament. Liv-
ingston Chatman and Pat Lawrence are the other prob-
In the past few weeks, Sloan has lost four players.
One was injured, another two had bad grades, and one
starter, Chris Capers quit the team because he did not
start in a game.
Sloan is not worried about the loss of those players
though. "I don't think it is having an effect," he said.

company and advise either party dur-
in'g, the hearing. If the Administrator
has notified the accused that suspen-
sion or expulsion are potential sanc-
tions, the attorney for the accused
may participate fully in the hearing,:
including examining witnesses, ob-
jecting to evidence and speaking on
behalf of the accused. The hearing1
will be tape recorded. At its conclu-
sion, the panel will discuss the evi-
dence with the complaining witness
and the accused. It will then deliberate
in private. The panel is obligated to
enforce the University's policy of
nondiscrimination in its deliberations
5. The Decision of the Hearing
If a majority of the panel finds
that there is clear and convincing ev-
idence of a violation of the policy, it
shall consider and recommend an ap-
propriate sanction, in light of all the
circumstances. It shall notify the ac-
cused of its findings and its recom-
mended sanction. If the accused ac-
cepts the finding and the sanction,
the result will be communicated to the
Vice President for Student Services,
who will enforce the sanction. If the
accused disputes the findings or the
recommended sentence, he or she may
appeal to an appellate panel com-
prised of one student and one faculty
member selected each year by lot from
the list of eligible panel members
along with the Vice President for Stu-
dent Services., The appellate panel
%Mill review the evidence and indepen-
dently determine both the existence of
a violation and the appropriate ac-
Hearing panels should fashion
sanctions commensurate with the of-
fendingconduct. Because education
may be the most effective and appro-
priate means of addressing discrimi-
natory behavior, the University en-
courages hearing panels to fashion
sanctions which include an educa-
tional element. Regrettably, some
conduct is so harmful to members of
the University community or deleter-
ious to the educational process that it
requires more punitive sanctions.
Hearing panels should impose such
sanctions where appropriate.
Certain factors should be consid-
ered in fashioning the sanctions, in-
cluding the intent of the accused, the
effect of theiconduct on the victim
and the University community, the
degree of remorse, whether the student
has violated the policy in the past,
whether sanctions such as education
and community service are likely to
change the student's attitudes, and the
effect of the sanction on the student's
standing within the University. The
most severe sanctions, suspension
from specific courses or activities,
suspension from the University and
expulsion, should be imposed only
when the offending behavior involved
violent or dangerous acts, repeated
offenses, or willful failure to comply
with a lesser sanction.

Special to the Daily
Salt Lake City, Utah -
The Michigan basketball team has a
disease. Its symptoms are apathy,
overconfidence, and lack of killer in-
The disease is called compla-
Complacency is a terrible thing.
It has caused the Wolverines to be
content with their 63-58 victory over
Boise State on Thursday.
Holding an 18 point lead with a
little over ten minutes to play,
Michigan allowed the smaller,
slower, and weaker Broncos to battle
back, and, incredibly, have a shot at
tying the game in the final 12 sec-
BUT THE Wolverines, in the
throes of their illness, did not seem
concerned. "Despite what you might
think, we didn't play as badly as you
think," said head coach Bill Frieder.
In the second half they committed
ten turnovers and shot only 57 per-
cent from the free-throw line. They
missed the front end of one-and-ones
four out of five times in the final
two and a-half minutes.
Gary Grant and Glen Rice, who
averaged 44 points between them all
year, scored nine and eight respec-
tively against a team that could not
hold a candle to most Big Ten
CLEARLY, something is
But when you talk to the team
there is no problem.
"It was a really great Boise State
team that came on and did a great job
in the second half. You have to give
them a lot of credit," said Mark
Hughes, as well as every other
"I feel I can speak for the rest of
the team," said Loy Vaught. "We are
just happy to come out of the game
with the win."
AND IT IS precisely that atti-
tude that represents what is wrong
with team. Suddenly, a three point
win over Boise State is cause for
Would a three point win over
Eastern Michigan earlier in the year
have been such a happy event?
Of course not, but none of the
Wolverines seem to realize that.
Instead of trying to cure them-
selves of their problems, they con-
tinue to maintain their "just happy
to be here" fever.
This isn't exactly a new scenario
either. Complacency has afflicted
Michigan for quite some time. This
is the third time in the past four
years it has reared its ugly head.
IN 1985, it was Farleigh Dick-
inson who "played a great game and
deserved all the credit in the world,"
but lost to Michigan 59-55.
In 1986, Michigan was "just
happy to come out with a win" over
Both times they went on to lose
their second round games.
If their is one man who can cure
the team, it is Frieder. He is the one
who can make the team realize the
error of its ways and help them
move on to the second round in
So what do you have to say for
"Win or lose Saturday, I'm still
going to be the basketball coach
here. Hey, we want to get to the re-
gionals, we want to get to the Final
Four... but if we lose, hell, I'm
heading to Florida and I'll watch
Florida from their next week."
Have fun Bill and don't forget to

The University's Board of Regents met again
yesterday in a closed meeting to discuss a successor to
retiring Athletic Director Don Canham.
Interim University President Robben Fleming had
originally planned to announce the regents' selection at
yesterday's meeting, but some "procedural matters" had
yet to be resolved. Fleming declined to explain what he
meant, and said an announcement concerning Canham's
successor would be made within the next week to ten
When asked what was causing the delay in naming
Canham's successor, Regent Philip Power (D-Ann Ar-
bor) said "I can't talk about that."
Fleming is scheduled to be out of town from today,
until next Saturday.
After leaving the closed meeting, Regent James
Waters (D-Muskegon) said "(the regents) have a candi-
date, but really haven't made a decision. Some of us
want to consider others."
He continued saying the regents would continue to
have closed meetings until they unanimously supported
Fleming disagreed, saying, "It isn't a case of not
knowing what is going on. It's a matter of clearing up
some of the problems." Again Fleming refused to de-
lineate this point.
Waters added that the regents would be having an-
other closed meeting later in the week, but he didn't
know any of the specifics. Fleming added that
"meetings certainly would take place this week."
Fleming also said that Michigan football coach Bo
Schembechler is not currently being considered for the
athletic director position. Schembechler was offered the
job last month, but turned down the offer because it
required him to retire from coaching after this season.
The Ann Arbor News reported yesterday that Uni-
versity Director of Business Operations Jack Weiden-
bach would be named the athletic director.
Regent Thomas Roach (D-Saline) said stories such
as the one in the News "are what happens when you
take a guess."
A member of the search committee, which Weiden-
bach was a member of, added his surprise that Weiden-
bach would even be considered.
Weidenbach is on vacation and unavailable for
Both prominent alumni and athletic director person-
nel are unanimous in their support for Schembechler.
As recent as yesterday, alumni were trying to set up a
meeting between Schembechler and Fleming during
which a compromise could be worked out, which
would allow Schembechler to hold both positions for
as long as he desired.
