Themicrocosm ofZack Novak

From Chesterton, Indi-
ana: number zero, Zack
Nooooooooo-vak.
Bobb Vergiels' voice cracked
slightly as he said it, adding
the extra umph that the occa-
sion deserved. The game hadn't
even started yet, but as Novak
approached midcourt to shake
William Buford's hand, the
crowd was already louder than it
had been all season.
Then the lights came on,
ending the build-up to the most
publicized Michigan basketball
game of the season - perhaps
the milenium. The questions
about Ohio State were over.
ESPN's College GameDay set
- which attracted a national
television audience to Ann
Arbor on Saturday morning and
night - had been whisked away

from center court. The fans, who
began lining up at 11 p.m. on Fri-
day, were in their seats.
And at 9:05 p.m., the ball
tipped off, and none of the hoop-
la mattered. Just Novak, nine
other players, two hoops and a
ball. Just a basketball game -
but so much more.
Zack Novak planted his feet,
put his hands up, and just two
minutes into the game, estab-
lished the area just outside the
key on Crisler's floor as his own.
National Player of the Year can-
didate Jared Sullinger came bar-
reling in with the ball, looking to
even the score at two apiece.
It was a classic matchup of
talent versus grit. Sullinger, the
best player on the best team
in the conference, was a top-
three recruit coming out of high

school. Novak, the heart and
soul of a team fighting to stay in
the race for a conference cham-
pionship,

At first,

basket sent Novak sprawling
to the floor. But then, official
Mike Kitts emerged, thrusting
his arm in front of his body. As
he has done so many times in

his career, Novak had drawn a
charge.
When John Beilein was hired
in 2007, skeptics said he'd never
succeed in the Big Ten. Beilein's
offense was synonymous with
finesse, and his lack of emphasis
on rebounding meant he'd never
make it outside the Big East.
But there was the undersized
Novak, a guard, winninga battle
against a future NBA lottery
pick with his effort alone. It
was just another play for Novak,
another play for the Michigan
defense that's become one of the
toughest to play against in the
conference.

Students planning to spend
the weekend relaxing before the
imminent arrival of midterms
had the opportunity to do some-
thing a bit out of the ordinary -
ice skate on North Campus.
The Center for Campus
Involvement and the Go North!
Initiative - a program that
works to raise awareness about
events and opportunities on
North Campus - set up a syn-

as part of Winter Blast, a two-
day event held this weekend to
increase appreciation for North
Campus through a variety of
winter-themed activities.
Located in the parking lot
behind the Walgreen Drama
