Michigan basketball coach Steve Fisher
announced at yesterday's team media day that
senior guard Rumeal Robinson will be the team
captain at the outset of the 1989-90 season.
Mike Griffin, Loy Vaught, and Terry Mills
will rotate through the non-conference games as
co-captain. Fisher said that he is not sure if he
will name one of the trio as a permanent co-
captain for the Big Ten season.

and publications to win the Big Ten. Fisher is

sophomore Rob Pelinka, who has tendinitis in
both of his knees and has not been able to

been slowed by a sprained ankle, which kept him
out of a couple of practices.
This year Crisler Arena will have a four-sided
scoreboard hanging from the ceiling as well as
new auxiliary scoreboards at both ends of the
The center scoreboard will cost $750,000. It
will be a four-color matrix scoreboard with the
capability of showing single-frame pictures, but
not motion-picture footage. A scoreboard with
the capacity to show replays would have cost an
additional $1.5 million.
There will also be auxiliary scoreboards and
television monitors in the concourses.
