BASKETBALL NOTEBOOK

Walk-ons expected
to aid in practice

By SCOTT BURTON
Daily Basketball Writer
Adam Jones, Mickey Zitzmann,
Chris Fields, Alex Lengeman and
Neal Morton may not represent the
future of the Michigan men's basket-
ball team.
But they do represent the future of
the Wolverines' practices.
The five are non-scholarship ad-
ditions to this season's roster. Al-
though they will not see an abun-
dance of playing time, they will play
an active role in practices, drills and
scrimmages.
Which is certainly a better fate
than the 30-plus athletes who com-
peted in open tryouts two weeks ago.
None of them made the team.
Fields, a senior, is a returnee
from last year's squad. Lengeman
and Morton are transfer students
who practiced with the team last
year but were not additions to the
game-time roster due to NCAA eli-
gibility regulations.
Jones was recruited by Michigan
as a walk-on, and Zitzmann practiced
with the team in the preseason. Both
players are freshmen.
HEALING BODIES: The number of
injured bodies has been reduced with
sophomore center Makhtar
Ndiaye's return to practice yester-
day.
He sprained his left knee in prac-

tice Oct. 24th and was expected to
be out for about two weeks. How-
ever, he started jogging early this
week and ran half-court drills yes-
terday.
"I was pleasantly surprised that he
moved as well as he did in our half-
court drill," coach Steve Fisher said.
"He was a lot better on his first day
back than I thought he would be. So I
am encouraged."
Freshman forward Maceo Baston
is also recovering quickly from an
injury. He dislocated his left shoulder
Oct. 24th and just got his arm out of a
sling this week. Fisher is hopeful that
Baston can return to action by Sun-
day.
THE EARLY RETURNS: So just how
have those highly-touted freshmen

been doing in their first month of
practice?
As would be expected with any
group of freshmen, they are still
learning the intricacies of a college
basketball system. Nonetheless,
Fisher is enthusiastic about their
prospects.
"They need to continue to work
and listen, but they are going to be
good players," Fisher said. "They
are trying awful hard and making
mistakes and at times getting frus-
trated.
But most of the time they are com-
peting and fighting through mistakes
and getting better.
"Our Michigan fans are going to
enjoy watching these young kids play
and grow."

PURDUE

shrugs aside any postseason honors
that may come his way.
"I don't get caught up in that
Coach-of-the Year garbage," he
said. "These ties have been a real
setback. I'm still gravely frustrated
by it. We won't end up with some-
thing if we don't win any of these
three games."
At least he'll have some job secu-
rity.

career high with 25 digs against Pur-
due last weekend. Her 17 kills were
also a personal best this season.
"RECKING" BALL: Darlene
Recker, a redshirt freshman from In-
diana, also posted career highs in the
Purdue match. She blasted 16 kills
and an impressive .343 hitting per-
centage.
WOUNDED WOLVERINES: Sopho-

mores Colleen Miniuk and Kristin
Ruschiensky, who started matches
earlier this season, did not make the
road trip last weekend due to inju-
ries. Miniuk has a strained rotator
cuff and will be examined today.
Ruschiensky has a severely sprained
ankle. Neither will play in this
weekend's matches.
Giovanazzi expects to start Smith
and Recker, Sarah Jackson or Sh-
annon Brownlee, Suzy O'Donnell,
Linnea Mendoza and Shareen
Luze.

By DARREN EVERSON
Daily Hockey Writer
The Michigan hockey team's
*%)ances for another CCHA title just
got a little bit better. Forward Mike
Knuble has been cleared to return to
play.
Knuble will rejoin sophomore
Brendan Morrison and junior Kevin
Hilton to form the Wolverines' top
line and will play this weekend
against Ohio State and Lake Supe-
rior State.
The senior right wing was diag-
10osed with a chest infection just prior
Ito Michigan's season opener against
Colorado College Oct. 21. He did not
play then and has not seen any action
at all since.

In his absence, sophomore War-
ren Luhning has been a more than
adequate replacement. Through the
team's first five games, he has scored
five points including three goals,
which ranks as the second-best total
on the team.
However, Luhning hasn't for-
gotten what Knuble means to the
Wolverines.
"We're more arrogant when he's
playing with us," Luhning said. "The
team looks a lot more to him to score
goals."
Knuble entered this season as the
team's top returning scorer. He tal-
lied 32 goals and 26 assists totaling 58
points last season, ranking him third
on the team.
