Freshman coach Tommy Matthews moved to the east · ia bit for a head coaching and t administrative job in Harrison ·Jwhile Tony Morroco went all f the way to the west coast In the meantime Camdens JslPat Foster joined the staff "and jubt tecently founei Lin *coln basketball tutor Bobby Vint signed on * " We 1 nterviewe d quite a few coaches for Ihe position," » remembered Van Eman, "But ' all of them came in with pie /conceived notions "about' our piogiam and the league ·Frankly we jubt didn't have :liihe to bring in someone with no knowledge of what wc'ie .trying to do and then train him." So what the Raz'orbacks did was to choose Vint, who's familiar with the system and is a recent graduate and player at the Umveisity to boot "I kept comparing all those we interviewed Bobby,' said Van Eman. "So coach Foster finally, told me .that if Bobby had all theseEqualities he must be the man.' »- Van Eman also ' dwells : heavily on feelings the players i have for a new coach. "It's ," hard to bring in a new coach !, and ask him to .build im! mediate rapport with the ·, players All that takes time," ; noted the Arkansas" coach. ; "The players already knew ° Bobby, liked him, and felt · they could work with him." 1 1 LOOKING AHEAD I With the coaching staff fi- I pally, settled the Porker,.staff 'S is concentrating on the season ·:' opener. "Although w e , can't .; begin our practice sessions ;; until October 15-ithere are i* several things '. t h a t - · our 'playeis sliould be wqiking on. For example Dunn Tolson and Doug Campbell bolh need to impiove llveir fiee throw shooting They can take the time until October to Improve · that aspect of their game," said Van Email. However, what is on the minds of most fans is how, Arkansas c.urie out in the ic crmUng wars Van Eman is quick to point out Unit one selection,- Jack Scluilte a 6-7 net sluffer from Subiaco, was the most valuable player in the'state all star game. .TAKING STOCK Before the recruiting season ever began the Arkansas coach suggested that the time for grabbing off some accom plished playeis that could help the team immediately was at hand. Nabbing Schulte is a btep in Ihe light direction. "We have perhaps a couple of freshmen that could help us right now. Loyd Fiee is one of them, but he's a guard and we 'have Martin Teiry, Jody Bass and Ricky Medlock (coming iip fiom the freshman ranks)," said Van Eman. The-recruiting season, although over for most, hasn't quite come to an end for Van Eman. Major Jones, a pume choice from Desha Central, is still available.,."Major Jones, could certainly help us right now, but he hasn't made a choice yet," said Van Eman Between August and October Van Eman and hib staff will still 'be ' making the rounds. 'The Porker coach traveled" to Oklahoma for their all star game and plans a few more trips on that order. "I hope to do a little public relations work this time of yeai We get a chance to get acquainted with people that' we don't 'ordinarily see during the basketball season. We also may heal of some prospect that we can begin thinking, about. In fact we're just about ready to change gears and: begin thinking about recruiting for next season," said Van Eman. 'So Until October Van Eman will be working almost in secret preparing his Razorback squad for the presently ..averted attention of Arkansas fan's."And if ! all ! goes well he'll ·'·; hve something special to show. , Atlanta Rookie Leads -5 Win.
