LeVert, Bielfeldt recovering
from offseason surgery

Ann Arbor, MI

After the Michigan men's bas-
ketball team lost three top players
to the NBA head- NOTEBOOK
iog ioto this sea-
son, junior guard
Caris LeVert is one of the only
returning key contributors.
Couple LeVert's length, shoot-
ingskills and defensive ability with
what should be an increased role
next season, and the expectations
are sky-high.
But first things first: LeVert must
1 recover from offseason surgery to
repair a stress fracture in his foot.
LeVert will miss the Kevin
Durant Skills Academy from June
27-29, but barring a setback, he
should be ready to go for the team's
trip to Europe in mid-August, said
Michigan coach John Beilein at a
press conference Tuesday.
"Obviously the surgery was a
success," Beilein said. "With some
of our players, we thought he is
such agrinder and he is in that gym
so longthat we didn't want to take
any chances. We expect him to be
fullgo probably by the beginning of
August, if not sooner."
Though Beilein won't be able to
prevent such injuries from occur-
ring in the future, he's taking
LeVert's injury as a guide to dealing
with such bumps moving forward.
"It's going to happen with some
people now and then, and it does
happen, a stress

foot," he said. "It'll be a t

being cautious, opportuni
and it's the right boy
thingto do.,,"
The only -
other player
limited by injuries is redshirt
junior forward Max Bielfeldt, who
had hip surgery after the season
ended. He will be out for most of
the summer, but Beilein said the
current plan is for him to be back
for the Europe trip.
In his absence, the thin Michi-
gan frontcourt - which lost Mitch
McGary to the NBA, Jordan Mor-
gan to graduation and Jon Horford
to a transfer - will be even thinner.
Though the injury might inhibit
the plans Beilein had for Bielfeldt
for the summer, it also enables
Beilein to perhaps better acclimate

"Ricky (Doyle) and Mark Don-
nal are going to get a lot of mean-
ingful minutes over the summer,"
Beilein said. "If Max isn't back on
the trip, (it's) reallygood for them."
WHEN IN ROME: Beilein pro-
vided more details on the team's
trip to Europe, which will begin
Aug. 15. The team will be gone for
eight days and play four games in
With such an inexperienced
team, Beilein expects improve-
ments out of several players. The
Wolverines lost four key contribu-
tors plus McGary, and just two
players - Bielfeldt and junior
guard Spike Albrecht - have more
than two years
of experience.

much time, so
I think it'll give
us a great time to start at ground
zero and build everythingup again.
Obviously some will be ahead of
(others), but there's not veteran
seniors and a young class. Every-
body's pretty young."
Beilein has worked with sopho-
more guard Derrick Walton Jr.
about taking over more of the scor-
ing load this season with three
starters gone. He also believes
sophomore guard Zak Irvin could
make a similar improvement
to what Stauskas did last year,
expanding his game beyond perim-
eter shooting into a penetration

Per NCAA rules, the team has
not traveled to Europe in four years.
In 2010, when the Wolverines took
a trip to Europe in the summer,
they made the second round of the
NCAA Tournament the following
year after missing out on the post-
season the previous year.
"We'll do some things on the
trip such as room the freshmen
with upperclassmen," Beilein said.
"(We) try and teach our culture
wherever we can. There's no cell
phones working, there's going to be
limited access to Internet, it'll be a
tremendous opportunity for us to
A FRESH START: For the third
time in four years, Michigan's lead-
ing scorer departed early for the
NBA, so the Wolverines will again
look to a deep freshman class to
contribute. This time, however, the
rebuilding process could be slower

next week, the Wolverines have
other recruits looking to make
an early impact. The Wolverines
added guards Aubrey Dawkins and
Muhammad Ali Abdur-Rahkman
late in the process after they lost
players to the NBA.
Beilein also didn't rule out the
possibility of adding another player
with the last open scholarship he
has available. He didn't mention

Redshirt junior center Gra-
ham Glasgow was charged with
operating a vehicle while intoxi-
cated on March 15, landing him
a suspension for part of spring as
well as the team's opener Aug. 30
against Appalachian State.
But there's a little more to that
According to a police report
obtained by the Detroit Free Press
and Ann Arbor News via a Free-
dom of Information Act request,
Glasgow was driving a Chevro-
let Suburban around 8:30 p.m.
on March 15 near State and Wil-
liam Streets. He blew a .11 blood-
alcohol concentration at the scene
and a .13 at the Ann Arbor Police
Department Security Datamaster
room, both above the legal limit
Glasgow told the police he'd
had five Natural Light beers since
3 p.m. He failed multiple sobri-
ety tests at the scene. He could
not concentrate when asked to
retrieve a number of items, stum-

bled when walking and could not
stand on one leg. Items were fall-
ing out of the trunk while the car
was moving.
"(Ann Arbor police officer Pat-
rick) Maguire could immediately
smell an overwhelming odor of
intoxicants coming from the driv-
er," the report stated, according to
the Ann Arbor News.
At least seven other passen-
gers were in the car, more than
the number of seatbelts. Glasgow
was pulled over by Maguire when
he allegedly noticed that senior
volleyball player Lexi Dannemi-
ller was in the passenger seat,
not wearing a seatbelt and hang-
ing out the window screaming at
pedestrians. Dannemiller, 20, was
charged with a minor in posses-
sion of alcohol and possession of
a fraudulent ID, that of fifth-year
senior rower Emily Idoni.
Glasgow was in Ann Arbor
District Court on Monday for his
pretrial hearing. At the request of
his attorney, John Shea, the hear-
ing was adjourned until June 16so
that a housekeeping matter could
be resolved. He was dismissed on
a $1,000 personal-recognizance
bond and cannot leave the state or'
consume alcoholuntil his hearing.

also have his pretrial hearing for

and one of battery that day.

Study of female
freshmen indicates
chasm between
social classes
Daily StaffReporter
In Fall 2004, 55 women moved
into a floor of a dormitory at a large
public Midwestern university. Only
53 were students.
The other two were Sociol-
ogy Prof. Elizabeth Armstrong and
then-graduate student Laura Ham-
ilton, now teaching sociology at the
University of California-Merced.
The most surprising find-
ings centered on the intersection
between affluence and who was
slut-shamed - that is, who was
made guilty for their sexual activ-
Although Armstrong said all
of the girls "slut-shamed" equal-
ly, poorer girls were shamed by
wealthier girls for their sexual
behavior. Although wealthier girls
had more hookups than the other
girls, poorer women felt that they
could not get away with this behav-
ior without being shamed.
Hamilton and Armstrong spent
five years studying the attitudes,
habits and daily routines of the girls
on their floor. They spent extensive
time with the women during their
first year and interviewed them
annually from sophomore year to
post-graduation. Their findings
concluded with a book published
in April 2013, "Paying for the Party:
How College Maintains Inequal-
ity", and a study published in Social

as The Secret of Roan inish from film," Burnstein said.

Sayles said although it is hard-
er today to raise money for inde-
pendent film and sustain a career,
it allows him to tell the stories he
wants to tell as an auteur.
"When I'm writing a movie for
somebody else, I'm an employee,"
Sayles said. "There are people
who don't raise their money inde-
pendently and who make their
own movies-they're a lot more
successful than I am and they
also don't get to do everything
they want."
Sayles came to this realization
early on in his career when he
beganwritingnovels that allowed
him to sculpt his own world, nar-
ratives and characters. Sayles has
since translated this creativity to
the screen but plans to write at
least one more novel, which will
most likely be based on one of his
screenplays that are not yet pro-
duced to be films.
Currently, Sayles writes
screenplays for TV and features
by other directors to raise money
