Marsden also said in the memo that he
heard Haskins ask Susan Latendresse, a
secretary in the basketball office in
1986, to process a scholarship tender to
an athlete who had hired an agent and
therefore lost his amateur status.
Marsden is now a counselor in anoth-
er department at the university.
Haskins, who resigned under pressure
and accepted a $1.5 million buyout of
his contract in June, has said he had no
knowledge of any academic cheating in
the basketball program.

Haskins' wife, Yevette Haskins, said he

The Wolverines lost three blueliners
in the offseason - Mike Van Ryn (to
the Sarnia Sting), Scott Crawford
(transferred to Niagara) and Matt
Bannon (academically ineligible).
"We need to get into a rhythm in a~
game and figure out how we're going
to play defensively, especially our
team as a unit," Berenson said. "The
defense's big challenge will be getting
the puck out of our zone."
Prior to tonight's opener, Michigan,
has had only a week of official prac-
tice with coaches. But nonetheless, the
team is confident that it can get off to
a flying start.
"It's not easy (to have such little
practice time), but we've learned a
