to play for last place Heat.

Best to worst.
Glen Rice, Michigan's most prolific basketball
scorer ever, went from the NCAA champion Wolver-
ines to the NBA celler-dwelling Miami Heat quicker
than you could say "swishhhh".
The National Basketball Association held its annual
college draft on June 27 and Glen Rice was one of the
seven "lottery" selections.
The Los Angeles Clippers, who possessed the
second pick, opted for Duke's Danny Ferry over Rice,
thus preventing a reunion with former Michigan guard
With the arrival of the Heat's pick, there was little

"With the fourth pick in the NBA college draft, the
Miami Heat select Glen Rice from the University of
Michigan," NBA commissioner David Stern

"Winning the title was great, but joining the pros
is like no other feeling," Rice said in an interview
People from the Miami Heat organization were very
enthused about obtaining Rice.
"We are very impressed with Glen," Rothstein said.
"He's a terrific young man and as good a shooter to
come out of college in the last ten years as anyone."

of player personal, said. "He's an intelligent kid and
has shown us that he can pick up new drills quickly."
Projected as a small forward, the rookie will not
necessarily start right away.
"He has to win the job," Rothstein said. "We ask
all of our players to play the game of basketball. He
may need time to adjust to the new game of pro-
Both Rothstein and Inman share an eager optimism
for the rookie.
After setting the all-time Michigan scoring record and winning the
NCAA title last year, Glen Rice will try to continue his success in
*,the National Basketball Association with the Miami Heat.
