Only the strong can expect to
survive Saturday when 30 teams;
clash in the Wolverine Collegiate
Classic at the CCRB.
The Michigan men's volleyball
team (4-1) will have two entries

eight players each for the tourna-

The University of Buffalo,
seeded first in its pool, is considered
the favorite going into the tourna-
ment. The Rhinos finished third in
the Collegiate Club Nationals last
year and recently returned from a
California road trip where they
knocked off several of the top teams
in the country.
The Wolverines' Blue team will
also be a top seed as will Park Col-
lege, Graceland College, Michigan
State, and Cornell. In addition to
the top seeds, the University of
Windsor is expected to field a

now is the time to do
to a single-elimination playoff. Six
additional teams will participate in
a consolation playoff.
"It's going to be great to see the
other teams in the area and see where
we fit in," senior co-captain Keith
Baar said. "These are the teams we
will be playing in the Midwestern
Championships and at the higher
"We have to start gelling as a
team and now is the time to do it."
After a drubbing by the Spartans
two weeks ago, the Wolverines
played nearly flawless volleyball
in their defeats of Wisconsin, Iowa,
and Northwestern. While Michigan
overmatched those teams, it will
have to bring its play to another
level to compete with the top seeds.
"Typically, you have to get on a
roll in a tournament like this,"
Michigan coach Tom Johengen said.
"You need to play well early and
let it build as you advance. You
must remain confident and consis-
tent. If you can sustain that the
whole day, and not get worn down,
you can do well."
Michigan hopes to finish in at
least the top five of the tournament.
To advance that far would probably
mean a second meeting with
Michigan State. Although the
Spartans soundly defeated the
Wolverines in their only meeting,
team members said they are looking
forward to a rematch.
"I think it would be a whole lot
different this time," Peirce said.
"We seem to play better at our own
tournaments. That loss was only
our second match of the year and we
didn't play nearly as well as we are
With the finals of the tourna-
ment not expected to start until
8:30 or 9:00 p.m., it will be a very
long day for Michigan.
"It is going to be tough for those
of us who aren't exactly morning
people," Baar said. "We are going to
have to get up for the early games
and that is probably the hardest
thing to do. Once we get into the
later rounds it is just inherent that
you are going to be a little more ex-
cited and a little more focused."
It doesn't get any easier for the
Wolverines. Next Saturday the
team will participate in a tri-match
at Wisconsin and then travel to an
Sunday tri-match at Illinois.
The following weekend will be
much the same with a tri-match at
home Saturday and a tri-match at
Bowling Green Sunday."We have to
play well now," Baar said. "We are
still trying to get to know each
other and that can't go on much
