Rumeal Robinson had entered
college at the bottom of the
academic ladder, another of those
athletes who couldn't pass the
SAT. Four years later, after
earning his degree from the
University of Michigan,
Robinson entered the Javits
Center in Manhattan on top of
the world.
He exited the NBA Draft as
the tenth pick overall, the top
selection of the Atlanta Hawks.
Robinson was happy.
In September, the 6-foot-1
guard agreed to a contract with
the Hawks. On the same day the
agreement was announced, the
International Olympic
Committee awarded the city of
Atlanta the 19% Summer
Olympics. Only one reporter
attended Robinson's press
conference.
But once the season began,
Rumeal put an end to his
anonymity. In his first two
games, he averaged 16 points and
10 assists in 26 minutes per game.
Robinson was even happier.
He drives an M5 that he
bought with a very small
fraction of his undisclosed multi-
million dollar deal, and enjoys
himself with the rest. But money

isn't the only advantage the NBA
holds over collegiate basketball.
"It beats going to classes and
getting up early," Robinson
admitted. "It's like being in
paradise."
Now Robinson settles into his
new lifestyle, accepting his
playing time and his bench time
with equal alacrity. As the
Hawks starting point guard, he
shares the backcourt with his
mentor, Doc Rivers. And for part
of every game, he yields to a
shorter teammate, Spud Webb.
While Robinson starts over
Webb, he'd like to follow the 5-
foot-7 guard's lead and capture
the NBA Slam Dunk title. The
title has resided in Atlanta on
several occasions, including when
it belonged to forward Dominique
Wilkins'.
Robinson cited that his biggest
fear is returning to Michigan to
play the Pistons, and having the
fans boo him.
We all know that won't
happen, after all, he was the guy
who hit those two free throws.
But what a tense life he must lead
if that is his biggest fear.
Robinson is at his happiest. So
happy that when asked to sum
up his new career and life, he
replied with a giggle:
"NBA action... Fan-tastic."
Mike Griffin
Former Wolverine forward
Mike Griffin is reportedly residing
in Japan, where he plays basketball
in a semi-professional corporate
league. Word has it Griffin now
scores 35 points a night in a very
competitive league that recruits
players worldwide.
Yes, that's the same Mike
Griffin.

"It's something that I worked
hard for," said Calip, who
averaged 8.5 points per game last
year. "I always wanted to be in
this position and now it's been
granted to me."
But something that definitely
was not granted to Calip were
teammates of his caliber. The
only other definite starter, Fisher
said, is junior center Eric Riley.
Riley, who saw his first action last
season after being redshirted the
year before, will be expected to
carry the inside game.
"I practiced all summer
because I knew I would start,"
Riley said. "Compared to other
(Big Ten) teams in size, we're
giving up a lot."
That will only make Riley's
job harder - especially since he
is extremely foul-prone. The
Wolverines can ill afford to lose
their only experienced big man,
who Fisher said needs to play
"30-some-odd minutes of the
game."
Michigan will depend upon a
passing forward, probably
surprise-of-the-preseason junior
Chris Seter, to get Riley the ball
in the post.
"I complement Eric well,"
Seter said. "I'm finally getting a
chaice to contribute. Hopefully,
I'll stay healthy and continue to
contribute."
When the ball doesn't find its
way to Riley, the Wolverines can
be counted on to pull the trigger

early and often from a host of
guards, including designated
shooter Tony Tolbert, a
sophomore not known for lack of
confidence. In fact, if things go
too poorly in the paint, watch for
Calip to lead a three-guard run-
and-gun offense.
"Last year, we had about six
guys who could soore," Fisher
said. "This year, it concerns me."
The solution, apparently, is for
Calip to move over to the
shooting-guard slot - a position
he enjoys playing - to let
sophomore Michael Talley run
the point and hope Tolbert
doesn't miss too often. Seter and
Riley would make the most of a
bad situation inside.
"I think that will be really
exciting," Talley said. "With
three guards, we'll have a lot of
options."
And with three guards on the
floor, none basket-shy, look for
Michigan to take more three-
pointers than it has in the past.
Three quick guards may also
mean increased pressing on
defense, a tactic the Wolverines
have generally stayed away from
in the past, in favor of a basic
man-to-man setup.
Like the starting five,
Michigan's bench will often hope
for the best. The two most
experienced players - junior
forward Rob Pelinka and junior
guard Kirk Taylor - are a far cry
from the sixth-man Michigan is

used to, although
each may surprise
people this season.
Pelinka is
generally regarded
as one of the best
outside shooters on
the team, and
therefore may be
called on to haul
Michigan out of
jams. Taylor
missed last season
with a knee injury
suffered against
Minnesota the year
before, but looks to
return to full-time
duty by the Big
Ten opener in
January. Fisher
said Taylor is
about 80 percent
healthy, but that
his quickness has suffered.
Taylor's presence will provide
much needed leadership and
experience, not to mention
another guard in an offense that
will probably be able to survive
on a 10-second shot clock.
James Voskuil is also returning
from an injury. The junior
forward should see increased
action during the coming months.
What remains unknown, and
possibly untapped, are the
newcomers - who generally have
received credit for a huge amount
of raw talent but little seasoning.
Fisher's newest players are
receiving more praise
r after their initial
practices than they were
last spring.
Forwards Rich
McIver (6-9, 215) and
Sam Mitchell (6-9, 220)
will be called upon to fill
vacancies left by Vaught
and Mills sooner than
they expected. "They're
going to have to play
power slots," Fisher
said. "We're going to
have to force feed them;
they're going to have to
grow up in a hurry."
Chip Armer (6-9,
225), a junior college
transfer, will replace
Riley when fouls begin
to mount on the starter,
and sharpshooting guard
Jason Bossard will add
to the team's firepower.
Three weeks ago,
Fisher refused to name
any starters besides
Calip and Riley. At
media day two weeks
ago, he added Talley,
Tolbert and Seter to the
lineup, but stressed the
paint wasn't yet dry on
Weekend the Crisler hardwood.

Players and coaches agree a
new attitude has permeated ab
Michigan basketball, and that, if and 0
nothing else, may have to carry
this team.
Gone are the hassles and $
headaches of dealing with four
stars, and the media coverage that
follows them. Gone is the
reputation for underachievement, let
and gone is a lineup which was all slam
but impossible to break into.
Instead, practices are more
competitive than ever on a team
that is expected be less
competitive.
"I think there's more
excitement throughout the team
in terms of, 'If I do well, I really
might play,"' Fisher said. "We're
going to be looking for starters.
We'll probably have eight or more
starting lineups."
And when the coaches find
those starters, don't be ashamed
to take a gander up at the
scoreboard if you need to figure
out just who's on the floor. They
may not be on their way to the
NBA, but then again, nobody's
expecting that.
"Something out of the ordinary
will have to happen for us to crack
the top three (in the Big Ten),"
Fisher said. "And something,
exceptional will have to happen
for us to make the top half.
"And if you get in the top half,
with the tradition we have, we
might get into the tournament."
Now, for a change, that would
be an accomplishment.
