BRONCOS DOMINA TE INSIDE

Western ed
By RON SCOTT AND CHRIS WILSON
Womens' basketball is generally
considered a fast-paced, non-contact
sport. But last night the Broncos of
Western Michigan dispelled that myth,
as they muscled their way to a 64-63 vic-
tory over the Michigan Wolverines at
Crisler Arena.
"Our inside game was the decisive
factor in this win," said Broncos' coach
Fran Ebert, who upped her career
Dietz record against Michigan to an im-
... scoreless down stretch pressive 14-2.

ges wo
Diane Dietz was the Wolverines'
main casualty in the physical contact.
Although Deitz once again led the
Michigan scoring attack with 17 points,
she failed to score in the last 18 minutes
of the game due to foul trouble.
"When Diane picked up her fourth
foul, she stopped dominating under-
nearth the boards and even stopped
shooting, which I don't understand,"
said Wolverines coach Gloria Soluk.
The Bronocs, down by as many as 13
points, battled back and knotted the
score at 45 when Pam Charity
capitalized on Deitz' fourth foul, hitting
both ends of a one-and-one.
From there the lead changed hands
nine times, as K.D. Harte and
Western's Kim Worden traded buckets.
The game see-sawed back and forth,
with neither team able to secure more
than a two-point lead. Finally, at 2:29
Worden's six-foot jumper tied the score
at 61 apiece.
Harte missed on a thirty-foot attem-
pt, and the Broncos grabbed the
rebound and immediately responded.
Pattie Rendine sank a jumper from the
top of the key, and Soluk called a
timeout with a minute remaining.

men cagers, 64-63
But the Broncos, now 12-9 on the year,
used a tough 1-3-1 zone defense to
prevent the Wolverines from getting a
shot off. The thirty-second clock ex-
pired, and Western took possession.
Western then ran out the clock until
with nine seconds left Bronco freshman
Lori Bade was fouled by Harte. She
calmly sank the. front end of the bonus
and gave Western a three-point lead.
With two seconds left, Harte sank a
meaningless layup and the contest en-
ded with the score Western 64,
Michigan 63.
"This is a very big win for us," said
Bronco coach Ebert. "Wins have been
tough for us here at Crisler."
Both coaches agreed it was a sloppy
game as Michigan committed 30 tur-
novers to Western's 26. many of the
Wolverine miscues came on the
Wolverines' fast-break. These blown
chances proved to be advantageous to
the Broncos as they converted the Blue
errors into points.
"I guess we kind of slopped this vic-
tory, " said Ebert.
The Wolverines, who are now 7-12,
take to the road against Miami of Ohio
in Oxford Saturday night and Grand
Valley next Tuesday night.
