t days later, athletic director Tom

Goss fired coach Steve Fisher and gave
Brian Ellerbe the interim job.
Instead of going to Meet the Firms,
Reid went to the Sheraton and stood
alongside his teammates at a pseudo-
press conference as Fisher claimed his
innocence. Fisher spoke out, players

real good thing for us," Reid said.
"We're stronger, a pretty close-knit
group. We've been through some pret-

Well, most players have been
through some trying times. But some,
mainly the frontcourt, didn't make it

With would-be senior Traylor opting
for the riches of a locked-out NBA

But the backcourt, led by Reid and
senior shooting guard Lou Bullock, is
different story. Both are proven outside
threats, and Bullock developed an
excellent penetration game last season.
Reid has been looking to do the same
this year.
"I've been working on my offensive
skills," Reid said. "Penetration and my
mid-range jump shot. People know I
can shoot the three, and they'll be

The backcourt-oriented team is a
new look for Michigan.
"That's going to be the focal point of
the team," swingman Brandon Smith
said of the backcourt. "That's a change

Robbie Reid and the Michigan basketball team have been working hard in the offseason to improve their games. They will
likely need to use all of that effort this season, as the Wolverines have to replace four key players from last year's team.
