After three very winnable games
against Oakland, Detroitand Western
Michigan to begin the season,
Michigan has the privilege of heading
south to face Georgia Tech on Dec. 1
in the Wolverines' contribution to the
Big Ten/ACC Challenge.
Then, on Dec. 11, Michigan hosts
another powerhouse from the Atlantic
Coast Conference when Duke comes
to town to rekindle a storied rivalry.
In some sense,'the game against
Georgia Tech will be Michigan's only
true road test before the Big Ten sea-
son begins. The only other time the
Wolverines leave Crisler Arena is to
battle Boston College later in
December, and the Eagles won just
five games last season.
Coach Brian.Ellerbe will be revisit-
ing his recruiting past when he meets
the Yellowjackets. During Ellerbe's
interim season in 1997, he pushed
hard to convince guard Tony Akins to
play understudy behind Louis Bullock
and Robbie Reid. But Akins opted not
to leave his hometown of Berkmar,
Ga., and instead stayed at Georgia
Tech, where he struggled last year, his
freshman season.
The Yellowjackets lost Dion Glover
a year earlier than expected to the
NBA's Atlanta Hawks, but they still
have reputable big men like Jason
Collier, the former Indiana transfer
who has found a home in Atlanta.
The Georgia Tech game represents a
swing game' for the Wolverines. With
their relatively weak nonconference
schedule, picking up a win where they
might not be expected to would come
in handy when making a case for post-
season play.
A win - or mere quality perfor-
mance - against ,Duke would also
boost Michigan in voters' eyes come
tournament time. The Blue Devils
enter the season ranked No. 10 nation-
ally, though they return only five play-
ers from last year's squad.

Chapter Two
Michigan coach Brian Ellerbe
has received verbal commit-
ments from two recruits already
this season, but his search for a
big man continues.
They will compose the start of
Ellerbe's second recruiting class.
The newcomers:
Avery Queen G 5-8
Bernard Robinson F 6-7
Pair to join
'M'in 2000
Michigan coach Brian Ellerbe has
nailed down verbal commitments from
two recruits already this fall, but he has
still has yet to meet his biggest need -
a quality post player.
Ellerbe secured point guard Avery
Queen and wing Bernard Robinson, and
he still has two scholarships left.
Losing out on Arthur Johnson from
Detroit, as well as Andre Brown hurt
Michigan's plans. With most of the top
recruits opting to commit early this year,
there is slim pickings for Ellerbe to feast
on.
Michigan has two choices; save one or
both scholarships for next year, or try to
find a diamond in. the rough from the
second tier of big men, or the junior col-
lege ranks, none of which sounds partic-
ularly appealing.

Rule 1-22: To.enable offi-
cials to see the coaching-
box line more clearly, a 3-
foot-long line shall be
extended out onto the
playing floor, similar to the
old "hash mark." All rules
regarding coaching-box
enforcement remain the
same.
Rule 2-5: Officials can now
have access to replay equip-
ment or television monitors
to assess whether a cor-
rectable error needs to be
rectified.
Rule 2-10: New changes in
proper administration of
correctable errors. In most
cases, if an error is correct-

ed, play shall be resumed
from the point at which it
was interrupted to rectify
the error. The change adds
the exception: "unless it
involves awarding amerit-
ed free throw(s) and there
has been no change of
team possession since the
error was made. Play shall
resume after the free-throw
attempt."
Rule 3-5: Uniform numbers
'1' and '2' were made legal.
The purposed of the previ-
ous rule was to prevent
confusion of officials' sig-

mittees determined is not a
problem in the modern
game. Michigan took
