he. doesn't expect the program to
R improve under Amaker.
"I think that with Amaker, the Michi-
Sgan basketball program is heading
towards three more years of mediocrity."
Nicholson said. "He is an unproven
coach. He came to Seton Hall with very
high expectations. They were Tanked in
the top 10 at the beginning of the year
an barely made the NIT. .. Who's to
s&y that he won't have the same prob-
Jenms here at Michigan?"
~University "Superfan" Reza Break-
stone said he's happy that the basketball
coaching situation was finally put to
_.Tast. Breakstone hopes Amaker, who
served as an assistant coach at Duke
under head coach Mike Krzyzewski
before leaving for Seton Hall, will be
able to bring a little Blue Devil magic to
Ann Arbor.
I'm glad that the basketball coach
situation has come to a resolution. I
think that no matter who we get, the
basketball program will be revitalized
ad the student body will be re-ener-

would not do the same. He said the Leg-
*slature had approved measures to
ensure districts would be drawn fairly.
"We are taking guidance from past
court cases and basically incorporating
them into the framework for redistrict-
ipg in 2001," he said.
Democrats have accused Republicans
at both the state and national levels of
marginalizing the voting power of
minority districts, which tend to vote
strongly Democratic.
One of the first to be criticized was
1.S. Secretary of Commerce Donald
Evans, who chose not to release statisti-
cally adjusted population counts that
supporters of "statistical sampling" say
give more accurate counts of minority,
districts.
"There are large parts of the city of
Detroit that are undercounted and there
is no question in my mind that if adjust-
ments were made for sampling, that rep-
*esentation from Detroit would increase
substantially," Brock said.
But Ginotti said the Legislature
already took undercounts into consider-
ation, allowing deviation from the aver-
age number of residents -per district in
minority areas to allow for more dis-
tricts to be created in urban areas.
"The idea that you can draw lines on
a map and guarantee victory for Repub-
licans and Democrats is just a fallacy,"
he said.

camp for children with AIDS.
"We chose to sponsor Camp Heart-
land because it's extremely unique. It
is the world's largest camping program
.for children affected with AIDS, and it
alows them to live without the prob-
erns of their disease and participate in
activities normal children do," said
Chad Fernandez, Greek Week public
~relations co-chair.
Even though Greek Week, which
began Tuesday, lasts only 10 days, the
teams of sororities and fraternities
'have been participating in other events
throughout the year, including K-
(irams and Dance Marathen, said
Corey Fernandez.
Chad Fernandez added that the
lood drive is one of the largest events
F"ljing Greek Week.

.,The blood drive is a part of our
Creek Week every year. It is extremely
significant because 97 percent of the
human population will need a blood
transfusion at some time during their
H Ives," he said.
The blood drive will :axe place
throughout the week at the Michigan
anion. Students and community mem-
4ers can register online ahead of time
The Journey of Hope next Monday
night is another highlight of Greek
Week that community and campus
xrembers are encouraged to take part
'We have four to six kids ,hat have
participated in Camp Heartland and
the founder'of the camp flying in to
speak with everyone about AIDS
awareness education and their experi-
ances. It's always a heartfelt presenta-
Won from the kids about how the camp
bAs touched their lives, said Betsy
Nichols, Greek Week event chair.
The week will culminate next
Thursday evening with a Sing and
Variety competition at Hill Auditori-
um.
fhis event is another way the rest
of the campus and community can par-
ticiate in Greek Week. We will have
eo portions: a sing and dance compe-
tition, which are both always really fun
to watch," said Nichols.

gized. I think we just need to have a
coach, get behind him, and move for-
ward," Breakstone said.
"Amaker's pedigree under Mike
Krzyzewski would suggest that the
same kind of program that is work-
ing at Duke could hopefully tran-
scend and come here to Michigan
and work," he said. "Hopefully if he
has the same kind of discipline and
hard work that Krzyzewski instills
in his boys at Duke, he will be a
good fit here."
Although students have mixed feel-
ings about Athletic Director Bill Mar-
tin's decision to hire Amaker, most feel
that he will far exceed Ellerbe as a
coach.
"I had season tickets this year, and I
plan on getting them again even though
Amaker is the coach" Doyle said. "I'm
sure he'll be better than Ellerbe."
With Amaker taking control of the
basketball team, fans are hopeful that
the program will begin heading in a
new, positive direction.
"Michigan is a bigger program than
SetonaHall" Breakstone said. "Here, he
will have plenty of room to grow."

AMAKER

he is a players-type coach. He yells
when he has to, but he also knows
when to sit down and talk with you."
When asked if he or any of his
teammates would transfer, Young said,
"I don't think so."
One player who promised not to
transfer is freshman guard Bernard
Robinson, who was recruited by
Amaker in high school.
"I like the decision' Robinson said.
"He was my favorite candidate
because. I knew him in high school.
He's a good all-around guy and a
great, young coach."
After reporting that Amaker was
coming to Michigan, ESPN said last
night that he was having second
thoughts about leaving Seton Hall.
That report was refuted by Martin,
W....OR 1. ,..DA ::

who received a phone call from Amak-
er confirming that he was coming. He
also called ESPN to refute the report.
Amaker, 35, was 68-55 in four sea-
sons at Seton Hall, including a Sweet 16
appearance in last year's NCAA Tour-
nament and three NIT appearances.
The Pirates, who started the season
ranked in the top 10, struggled all sea-
son and reached their low point when
junior Ty Shine and freshman Eddie
Griffin were involved in a fight in the
locker room after a game.
Michigan was 10-18 last year and
finished in 10th place in the Big Ten. It
was the Wolverines worst showing
since the 1981-82 season.
None of Ellerbe's assistant coaches
have been fired yet and Martin said it
will be up to Amaker to decide if he
wants to retain the same support staff.
Michigan's lone national title came
against Seton Hall in 1989.
