Women cagers 9-2; best start ever.

For most people Christmas comes
once a year, leaving behind fond
memories and three or four valuable
presents. For coach Gloria Soluk,
Christmas began with the first practice
of the season and has yet to end.
While the majority of Michigan
students were home enjoying the
holidays, the women's basketball team
remained in Ann Arbor, compiling a
five game win streak which included a
sweep of its own holiday tournament
and a defeat of cross-state rival
IT ALL BEGAN way back on the thir-
teenth of December with a game again-
st the Blue Demons of DePaul. Senior
co-captain Diane Dietz and sophomore
Lori Gnatkowski led the attack with 28
points and 10 assists respectively, as
the Wolverines notched their first vic-
tory of the streak, 88-72.
"We played real tough," said fresh-
man Peg Harte. "Our defense stayed
with us the whole game."
The next opponent Michigan disposed
of was the Chippewas from Central
Michigan. It was the second meeting
between the two teams this season, with.
Michigan winning the first one 85-77.
Due to the fact that it was the second
time the Wolverines had faced them,
the team as a whole showed a lack of in-
tensity. Despite their inconsistent play,
Michigan won the game 83-68.
"WE PLAYED down to their level,"
pointed out Harte. "We didn't totally
blow them out."
After a brief Christmas break, the
team was back on the court, competing
in the first ever Domino's Pizza
Wolverine Classic. The two-day affair,
played at Crisler Arena, featured
Bowling Green, Kent State, Wayne
State, and the host team, Michigan.
Picking up where they left off, the
team held off a strong Bowling Green
team in .the first round, defeating
them 74-70. In the championship game,
the Wolverines overcame a much taller
Kent State squad, 79-63.
The most recent victory in the streak
occurred this past Tuesday, as the
Wolverines knocked down arch rival
Michigan State, 78-76. Starting center
PAtrice Donovan dominated the game
with 10 rebounds and nine blocked
Michigan hopes to continue their
streak this coming Saturday, as they
travel to Ohio to face the Buckeyes
from Ohio State.

In the middle of Christmas vacation
the Michigan wrestling team finished
19th out of 68 teams in the 1981 Midlands
Wrestling Championship in Evanston,
The majority of Michigan's points
were tallied by 158-lb. senior Nemir
Nadhir, who won three of four matches;
sophomore All-American Joe Mc-
Farland, who took fourth place in the
118-16 class; senior Eric Klasson, who
managed a fifth place finish in the
heavyweight division. Both Mac-
Farland and Klasson had been
previously undefeated before suffering
late-round losses in the Midlands tour-
The top three teams in the tour-
nament were Iowa State, the Hawkeye
Wrestling Club, and Iowa, which in-
dicates the abundance of wrestling
talent in the state of Iowa.
The wrestling team's next home mat-
ch will also be their first Big Ten mat-
ch, against Indiana on January 15 at
Crisler Arena, beginning at 7:30 p.m.

NEW YORK (AP)- The athletic
program at Wichita State has been
placed on probation by the NCAA for a
long list of recruiting violations, the
New York Post said yesterday.
The newspaper, quoting sources close
to the NCAA, said the probation could
be for as long as three years. That could
bar the Shockers' nationally ranked
basketball team from television ap-
pearances and postseason tournamen-
