ADRIAN, Mich. - Michigan students generally treat the Wolverines
as their home team and no one else's.
But the Wolverines are equally cherished out in the places where I-94
doesn't go straight through town. When Michigan scrimmaged at Adrian
High School last night, the Maize and Blue shone as brightly as in
Crisler Arena.
"You think of it as your home team, like they were from your own
home town," said an Adrian high school sophomore who is a veteran of
exactly one game in Crisler Arena. "They (fans) see them playing here and
then they start going to the games (in Crisler Arena)"
However, Crisler doesn't begin to give fans the distinctively high-
schoolish and personal; view that a small gym does.
"It's nice because you get that closer contact," one Blissfield man said.
"You can hear the coach's and the players' comments."
Actually, closeness doesn't really describe the atmosphere. It's not ev-
aery day fans can sit below coach Steve Fisher, who perched on the last
row of the bleacher with a bag of popcorn, and with their knees pushing
up against players' backs on the bleacher in front of them.
And there are probably more NBA players' autographs in Adrian -
Michigan also played in the Maples' gym last year - than in all of Ann
'Arbor. When was the last time the Wolverine players remained on the
floor at Crisler, signing autographs for a seemingly endless line of gram-
mar schoolers?
The Wolverines' trips to Hoosiers-like high school gyms around the
state definitely works as a way of involving Michigan fans who have
never been to Ann Arbor.
As the final buzzer sounded - the typical deafening horn indigenous
only to high school gyms - one sixth-grader from Adrian took a second,
before racing out for autographs, to speak for all those who think of the
Wolverines as U-M students do. When asked whether he rooted for Michi-
gan or Michigan State, the boy took on a serious glare and said, "Oh, Oh,
buddy, Michigan all the way. C'mon, you know that."
I do now.

ADRIAN,.Mich. - It was no
mystery that last night's Blue-White
intrasquad game was the first action
Michigan had seen. Mistakes and er-
rors were made before the small
crowd at Adrian High School
throughout the evening.
However, there certainly wasn't a
lack of effort. Players went all out
trying to impress the coaching staff,
as every player has a shot at break-
ing into the starting lineup. Wolver-
ine coach Steve Fisher still claims
three starting positions are open.
The two definite starters, guard
Demetrius Calip and center Eric Ri-
ley, showed why they're the leaders.
Calip led all scorers with 28 points,
and Riley added 24.
More importantly, Riley stayed
out of foul trouble and at the same
time, went to the charity stripe thir-
teen times, sinking ten.
Another player who put up some
offensive numbers was Kirk Taylor.
He scored 23 in his first action in 21
months. But Fisher wasn't im-
pressed with his team's 166 points
at all.
"I was disappointed that our de-
fense was as bad as it was," Fisher
said. "I knew it wasn't going to be
good, but that has been a point of
emphasis. Consequently, too many
points were scored."
Part of the reason can be at-
tributed to confusion during substi-

tutions. Often times, players were
left wideopen after a timeout be-
cause they were unguarded.
"Heck, I could have shot those if
no one was guarding me," Fisher
One person who did stand out de-
fensively was walk-on Freddie
Hunter. The 6-foot-5 junior has
quick feet and rarely makes mental
First-year student Sam Mitchell
also had a few shining moments de-
fensively. He notched several blocks,
but seemed to tire near the end of the
Another first-year student who
played well was Jason Bossard. The
Charlotte native scored 13 points,
hitting three three-point shots. Other
scorers in double figures included
Tony Tolbert with 24, Chip Armer
with 12, Rob Pelinka with 12, and
Michael Talley with 11.
"I have to be honest with you, no
one stood out in my mind," Fisher
said. "I could name some guys that
stood out the other way."

Redshirt sophomore Eric Riley has a grasp on the starting center
position for the Wolverines this season.

Seter steps out of anonymity, into

by Phil Green
Daily Basketball Writer
How many people remember
Chris Seter? Don't be embarrassed if
,you don't; you are not alone.
The 6-foot-9 forward did not see
any action during his first two sea-
sons in Ann Arbor and only played
in 17 games last year. He averaged
f. 1 points per game, and tallied ca-
rber highs of five points at Wiscon-
sin and six rebounds against Central
With most of Michigan's pro-
duction from last season in the NBA
now, Seter should see considerably
rmore playing time.
"If we played a game today, he
would start," coach Steve Fisher
said. "And he hasn't played 20 min-
utes in his career if you totalled all

his minutes together."
Injuries have kept Seter out of
the lineup in the past, but his
toughness during practice thus far
has impressed Fisher. Seter severely
dislocated his finger and did not miss
a day of practice.
"He smells playing time. I can't
believe he didn't miss a practice,"
Fisher said. "Maybe mentally he's a
little hungrier, a little tougher."
Seter won't be expected to put up
explosive numbers this year. In fact,
Fisher doesn't even expect him to,
average 10 points per game. He will
be expected to contribute under the
boards, and with solid defense. He
might even spend time covering the
other teams' top big man to help
keep the Wolverines' Eric Riley out
of foul trouble.

Riley saw action off the bench
last year. But the 6-foot-11 center
frequently sat next to Fisher after
picking up quick fouls. Last season,
Michigan could afford to have Riley
on the bench. However, this year the
Wolverines do not have that luxury.
"We have to have Riley in the
lineup," Fisher said. "We need Eric
on the floor for 30 odd minutes a
If Riley ends up on the bench,
the Wolverines, who expect to em-
ploy an up-tempo style this year,
will probably slow things down
while he rests.
Fisher has a better idea of who
else might start alongside Riley and
captain Demetrius Calip. He would
like to have a list of his top five or
six players, and right now sopho-

mores Michael Ta
