tly responsible for eight of the ten poin-
ts scored by Michigan during a five-
minute overtime. The regulation play
ended in a 56-56 deadlock and then Dietz
began her overtime rally.
DIETZ FED junior Brenda
Venhuizen with a quick pass under-
neath to grant Michigan a 58-56 lead.
Notre Dame followed with four suc-
cessful foul shots by Tricia McMannus,
but Dietz sank a 15-foot jumper to tie
the score at 60.
Venhuizen hit a jumper and then,
with a minute remaining in the contest,
Dietz calmly made both ends of a one-
and-one to push Michigan to 64-60. Just
to be safe, Dietz once again found the
net with a 16-foot shot to secure a 66-60
victory far the visiting Wolverines.
"I'm proud of the kids," explained
Coach Gloria Soluk, "It's always hard
to win on the road." Part of the dif-
ficulty in winning on the road stems
from the questionable officiating wit-
nessed by the small but vocal crowd.
The officials were pelted with angry
shouts. Michigan was whistled for 27
personals to Notre Dame's 14, resulting.
in two Blue players, junior Abby
Currier and sophomore Jeanne White
fouling out.
"WHEN YOU see Penny Neer com-
plaining about the officiating, you know
it's bad," noted Soluk, "because she

never complains."
In addition to the on-the-court
problems, the Wolverines experienced
off-the-court difficulties as well. The
team bus did not have heat on the three-
hour drive to South Bend, resulting in
freezing Wolverines and another cold
shooting first half. Michigan shot 12 of
31 for a 39 per cent in the first half com-
pared to 12 of 22 for 54 per cent for Notre
Dame, culminating a 30-26 Irish lead at
Michigan warmed up in the second
half behind the court leadership of
Katie McNamara to catch Notre Dame
at 30-30, starting a see-saw second half.
MICHIGAN BUILT a brief second
half lead of six points due to the steady
play of Venhuizen but the Irish stormed
back. With the score tied 56-56 a steal by
Diane Hatch gave Michigan the ball
with 11 seconds. Unfortunately for the
Wolverines, they were unable to get a
shot off, putting the game into over-
Dietz led all scorers with 20 points
followed by Venhuizen with 10. Penny

nine rebounds.
Michigan is now 2-1, and they face
Oakland University in Rochester Mon-
day night. Their next home contest
comes Thursday against the University
of Detroit, which is ranked 18th in the
nation. The contest begins at 7 p.m. at
Crisler Arena.

Women tankers beat
Pitt in season debut
The Michigan women's swimming team got its dual meet season off to
an impressive start by defeating a strong Pittsburgh team, 721-58%.
Michigan got fine efforts from several of its veterans in addition to a few out-
standing performances from its freshwomen making their dual meet debuts.
Two of those freshwomen were especially outstanding - Carolyn
Clymer and Kathy Kooser. Clymer qualified for the National AIWA Tour-
nament in winning the 50-yard freestyle with a time of 24.49. She also
finished a strong second to'Pittsburgh All-American Amy Jackson in the 100-
free, and anchored Michigan's victorious 400-yard freestyle relay.
Not to be outdone, Kooser was equally impressive in winning the 100- and
200-yard breaststrokes (in 1:08.24 and 2:25.13 respectively.) The three win-
ning performances were all Michigan varsity records. "Not bad for their fir-
st varsity dual meet," declared Michigan Coach Stu Isaac.
The freshwomen performances were outstanding, but there were some
equally fine performances from Isaac's veterans. Junior Sharon Flaherty
(with times of 59.84, and 2:09.15 respectively) and sophomore Barb Don-
Carlos (1:00.53, 2:11.83) finished a strong 1-2 in both the 100- and 200-yard
backstrokes. Another freshwoman, Lisa Larsen, completed a much needed
sweep by placing third in the 200 breast,
Michigan's divers also turned in a fine performance. Junior Julie
Bachman and senior Barb Weinstein placed 1-2 in the one-meter and three-
meter diving. Senior Ann McDivitt (third in the three-meter) and fresh-
woman Vicki Kimball (fifth in the one-meter) also fared well in the opener.
Junior Mary Rish turned in a fine performance as well. Because of the
way Michigan matched up against Pitt, Rish was forced to swim in four
freestyle events instead of her natural backstroke. "Mary's enthusiasm and
willingness to sacrifice has carried over to the whole team," said Isaac.
Michigan's win overshadowed a great performance by Pitt's Jackson.
Jackson won the 200-free (1:54.00), the 100 free (52.48) and the 100 fly (56.43).
Her time in the 100 butterfly qualified her for the National Olympic Trials
next spring.
The women will take a little time off for finals before they head for Texas
to participate in the Texas International Meet January fourth and fifth. Then
they'll come home to face the meat of their schedule.
"I'm looking forward to an outstanding season," declared Isaac. After
the team's performance against Pittsburgh, it's easy to see why.

down, but Ohio State still took a 10-point lead into the locker
room at the half.
Williams, a 6-foot-10 junior center, dominated the game
for the Buckeyes, scoring 14 points in the first half.
Kelvin Ransey added 14 points before being taken out of the
game with apparent knee injuries with about 10 minutes left
in the game.4
At that point, however, the Buckeyes held a 21-point lead.
The victory boosted Ohio State to 2-0 while the Hatters
dropped to 1-2.
