SPORTS OF THE DAILY

The atmosphere surrounding last
night's women's basketball practice
was not what one might expect after a
heartbreaking one-point loss. Neither.
Coach Gloria Soluk nor her players
were discouraged by the team's 69-68
loss to Oakland University on Monday
"They did everything we've been
trying to teach them," Soluk stated.
"This was the best game any team has
played since I've been coaching at
Oakland proved too strong for the
Wolverines and was able to squeeze out
the win, bringing Michigan to a 2-2
Coach Soluk attributed Monday
night's loss to the lack of team height
and the 're-positioning of 5-11
sophomore Katie McNamara. Mc-
Namara was shifted from a forward to
the point-guard position.
"Katie's not used to playing guard,"
Soluk said. "In high school, she (Mc-
Namara) played center and was not
allowed to dribble the ball. Now she's
expected to bring the ball up court, and
that's a tough transition."
ALSO, THE team has no player taller
than six feet and is forced to play a
perimeter game, looking for the best
percentage outside shots. Monday night
they seemed overpowered under the
During the game, Michign shot only
ten foul shots while Oakland went to the
charity stript 31 times. Nevertheless,
Michigan compensated with excellent
shooting from the floor to make the
halftime seore at 34-32, Oakland. The
second half provided exciting action as
the lead see-sawed on a one-point
margin, but Oakland finished on top.
Leading scorer for the women cagers
was Diane Dietz, with 22 points, while
Penny Neer and Abby Currier chipped
in with ten points apiece. Soluk was
happy with the team's performance
and praised Dietz' effort.
Looking toward Thursday's clash
with University of Detroit, Soluk
"We're going to take this game as we
would any other game. I don't want any
one game to seem more important,"
Soluk stated. "I want my players to
learn my brand of basket-

Michigan wrestling fans will get their
last chance before the holidays to see
the team in action when the Wolverines

Monday, Dec. 15 at 7:30 p.m. in Crisler
Michigan wrestled Kent State last
year down in Ohio and the Wolverines
won the close contest by a point.
Assistant Coach Joe Wells said, "We
don't know much about them, except
that they come from a very strong
wrestling state and their coach, Ron
Gray, is a two-time national champ."
