} Spicer adds a little
Spepper to M lineup
It is hard not to like a basketball player with a
name like Leslie Spicer. It's the kind of name
public relations people would create for a catchy
new singer. Maybe someone who would compete
with a Debbie Gibson or a Tiffany.
But Spicer, who was'unheard of in her senior
year at Albion High School, is more than just a
flash-in-the-pan. As one of the starting forwards
on the Michigan women's basketball team,
Spicer averages 8.6 points per game and 3.4
"Bud called me 'the sleeper' when I came to
this University, because I wasn't heavily re-
cruited by any other schools," Spicer said. "I
didn't expect to start at a Big Ten school. Now,
I'm getting a lot of playing time, I'm being
called on to do a lot of things, and it feels good."
MICHIGAN coach Bud VanDeWege said:
"Leslie has so much quickness and energy out
there that we look for her to create things
defensively. She's a spark plug type of player."
This season, Spicer has had to adjust to
different conditions before almost every game.
After starting most of last season, Spicer was'
relegated to the bench when Lorca Feldman
returned from academic ineligibility. VanDeWege
thought about trying Spicer at guard, but when
Feldman became ineligible again, the coach
returned Spicer to her familar spot along the front
Injuries and slumps by others have also
affected Spicer's duties, but she never waivers
when it comes to picking up the team. Spicer's
enthusiasm may be her greatest asset.
"At times, Leslie is just hyped, for no
reason," forward Tanya Powell said. "I guess that
rubs off on people. She has played with a lot of
emotion this year."
"Leslie is an exceptional person," VanDeWege
NOWHERE is this more evident than in
Spicer's hometown of Albion, where she returns
to talk to teenage girls about her success, as well
as how to avoid failure.
In recent years, Spicer has counseled teenage
girls in the Minority Prevention Program of the
South Central Nichigan Substance Abuse Com-
mission. The program's Executive Director, Har-
ry Bonner, values Spicer's contributions.
"Leslie is very instrumental in keeping young
kids off of drugs in Albion," Bonner said. "Drugs
are a potential problem for all kids in this
community. When you have someone like Les-
lie, who will come in and speak to them often, it
is worth its weight in gold.
"She is better for these kids than even the
most famous celebrity, because she does come
back. She is someone who cares about these
people and Albion."
Spicer added: "It discourages me to hear from
girls who want to run in the fast lane and be
wild. They'll have their eyes on you the whole
time you talk, but it doesn't go through their
heads. But I do care, and I will keep doing that."
BUT BEFORE you give Spicer this year's
Noble Peace Prize, don't forget that she is one of
the most competitive, toughest players on the
"Leslie's an excellent shooter and if you get
her hyped up defensiviely, she'll do the job," said
Powell, who is one of Spicer's closest friends off
Even after another solid season where she has
had her role redefined before almost every game,
Spicer expects to do more.
"I should be scoring more, and I wish I could
be more consistent. I'd like to make up for
Lorea's loss, and play like I did against Ohio
State (where she scored 18 points)," she said.
If you go to a women's game at Crisler, not
only will you be able to see Spicer play, but you
might catch her singing the national anthem, like
she did before a game last season. According to.
those close to her, Spicer has a great voice.
Maybe Debbie Gibson should learn a hook
cured her a spot
