The Michigan Daily-Weekend etc.- Best of A
B EST' WRTS
Not a bad year for film, all things
considered. We had the good, the bad,

When asked about Coastal Caro-

alley-oop off the backboard to Webber
to seal the victory.
Worst Excuse for an Announcer:
Before the NCAA basketball tour-
nament, the former UCLA and Port-
