Candidate Webber hopes for
all-American season

Is there an award sophomore
Chris Webber (6-foot-9, 240)
didn't win last year? The na-
tional championship, of course.
Outside of that, the list is as
big as his Sports Illustrated-
photographed "monster jam"
against Ohio State in last year's
NCAA quarterfinals. Webber
was Big Ten Freshman-of-the-
Year in both the coaches' and
media polls, named to the NCAA

all-Tournament Team, honor-
able mention all-America from
the UPI, second-team all Big-
Ten, Michigan's co-Most Valu-
able Player (with Rose), and an
all-Big Ten and all-America
candidate this year. Oh yes, and
he also played on the U.S.
Olympic Developmental Squad
this summer. But you already
knew that.
Webber produced the com-

plete package for Michigan last
year, scoring both in the paint

and beyond the three-point
stripe, leading the team in
rebounding (10.0 ppg), blocks
(2.5 bpg) and steals (54).
Fisher said he wants Webber
and Jalen Rose to concentrate on
the present, and not their
prospective NBA future.
"I think the most important
thing for them to do now is not
worry whether the Pistons are
watching, or the Bulls," Fisher
said, "but worry about Michigan,
and what they can do here - in
the classroom, and on the
basketball court."
Fellow sophomore Ray
Jackson (6-foot-6, 213) will
start at the small forward
position. Jackson initially was
overlooked last year, but joined
the other four freshman as a
starter at Notre Dame - in
which he scored four points and
notched threerebounds -s and
started 15 of the last 16 games.
Known primarily for his defense,
Jackson drew Ohio State's Jim
Jackson and shut him down in
last year's NCAA tournament.

Nevertheless, Jackson's .545
shooting percentage was third
on the team last year.
Jackson's offensive highlights
last year came in the Red
Lobster Classic, where he came
off the bench for 11 points, three
rebounds and a steal. And like
fellow Texan Jimmy King,
Jackson's slams are renowned
for their athleticism.
Senior James Voskuil (6-
foot-8, 203) could be considered
Michigan's all-International
player, having starred on two
Big Ten all-star European tour
teams. Voskuil emerged as a
sixth-man last year in
Michigan's front court in the
Wolverines' 68-60 victory over
Indiana at Crisler Arena.
Voskuil turned in a similarly
strong performance off the bench
in the Final Four against
Cincinnati, and many credit his
performance with salvaging the
game for the Wolverines.
Rose will also see time at
forward for Michigan this year.

certainty to reach the NCAA
tourney. But it dropped six of its
final seven contests and had to
settle for an NIT bid. This

Kaufmann, who sat out a year
with academic problems, bodes
well for the Fighting Illini, but it
may not be enough for them to

become weaker, a strong major-
ity of the coaches had a similar
reply: Only Ohio State (15-3,
26-6) had noticeably gotten
worse. Losing five seniors would
have been devastating enough.
But the defending Big Ten
champions lost all chance of
repeating when superstar guard
Jimmy Jackson announced his
intention to turn professional.
"I don't think you replace
Jimmy," Buckeye coach Randy
Ayers said. "What you try to do
is get two or three players that
can assume some of his responsi-
bilities and go from there ... The
area that we'll miss Jimmy the
most in is leadership."
Ayers will have to rely on
forward Lawrence Funderburke
to supply guidance for the young
squad. A talented freshman
class will provide excitement,
but the Buckeyes enter this
campaign with the 1993-94
season in the back of their
heads.
Only one coach in the Big Ten
can say that he has run a
National Basketball Association
club. Surprisingly, though,
former New York Knicks coach
Stu Jackson's hiring at Wiscon-
sin (4-14, 13) received little
notice. Perhaps this can be
attributed to the fact that even
John Wooden couldn't revive the
woeful Badgers overnight.
A quality back court should
present itself in Madison,
though. Junior Tracy Webster
and sophomore Michael Finley
combined for an average of 29.6
points last season. Jackson
when asked to state his team's
biggest weakness, responded
with one word: "Rebounding."
Center Grant Johnson and
forwards Damon Harrell and
Louis Ely will try to fill this gap.

"Our team has more depth
than we've had in the past,"
Northwestern coach Bill
Foster said. "I think we're a
dangerous team. We're gonna
get some people this year."
Well, no one can accuse
Foster of being a pessimist.
Although his squad is getting
better, the Wildcats (2-16, 9-19)
have a long way to go before
they can even think about
causing a major commotion.
At least Northwestern can
take solace in the fact that it
won't finish in the basement. It
can thank Penn State (21-8
overall) for that. In their inaugu-
ral year of Big Ten competition,
the Nittany Lions will be too
overwhelmed and under-
prepared for the odyssey that
awaits them.
Even if this wasn't its first
year in a powerful conference,
Penn State would have a diffi-
cult campaign ahead. With only
two starters returning -
forwards DeRon Hayes and Eric
Carr - Coach Bruce Parkhill
