Women cagers clawed by 'Cats, 82-66
By LARRY MISHKIN
The Michigan women's basketball
team was brought back to reality
following their big upset over Illinois on
Saturday, as the Northwestern Wild-
cats ripped the Wolverines 82-66 last
night at Crisler Arena in the cager's
final game of the season.
The two teams traded the lead back
and forth for most of the game until the
final seven minutes when the Wildcats
came to life and outscored Michigan 32-
14 the rest of the way to coast to victory.
"WE WERE right with them for the
whole game," said coach Gloria Soluk.
"But 4en Lori (Gnatkowski) fouled
out we had trouble running the ball and
that led to our demise."

Running was not the Wolverines only
problem though as the team shot
an anemic 32.5 percent from the field.
Even the team's leading scorer, Diane
Dietz, playing in her last game as a
Wolverine, could only muster 10 points.
Once again freshman Peg Harte was
the team's lone bright spot as she
poured in 26 points and broke Mike
McGee's record for most points by a
Michigan freshman (531), finishing the
season with 552 points.
"We just didn't play well tonight,"
said Soluk. "Diane was not hitting and
we made too many turnovers. The ball
wasn't where it should have been. It's
just hard to come back after an
emotional win like the one over
FOLLOWING a pre-game ceremony
in which the seniors and their parents
were honored, Michigan came out
strong, employing an effective full
court press and jumping to a quick 10-2
lead. However, Northwestern battled
back and finally went ahead of the
Wolverines for the first time, 34-32, as
the half ended.
"We caught them by surprise with
the press, but they're an excellent team
and they were able to come back," said
Soluk. "We couldn't go up with them on
the boards and when they went to a zone
defense we could hardly move the
"We started out quick but then
couldn't pick up the slack," said Harte.
"We've had trouble with the zone all
year and couldn't beat it tonight."
DIETZ, WHO capped off an outstan-
ding career in which she became only
the third player in Michigan history to
reach the 2,000 point plateau, was not
pleased with her final performance.
"The girl who was covering me was
quick and it forced me to rush my shot"
said Dietz. "At the end of the game we
were going for three point plays and
had all five girls on the boards so they
were able to run the fast break. It was
all or nothing and we got nothing."
However, Dietz, who had to struggle
through three losing seasons before this
year's 17-9 mark, said all she was
thinking about were her four years at
"YOU GO through a lot of good and
bad," she said. "I'll always remember
Going into the game, Michigan had a
shot at an NCAA tournament bid, but
the loss erased the Wolverine's slim
"The girls were just playing to win,"
said Soluk. "This was our best season
ever and we wanted to go out as win-
,hers. The girls had a fantastic year and
I'm very proud of them; we just ran in-
to a series of disappointments. We have
a great future ahead of us. Our
recruiting is going very well. If we can
sign a couple of big kids we will be very
good next year."

FRESHMAN SENSATION Peg Harte is swamped by swarming arms while
trying to dish off a pass to a teammate last night against Northwestern.
Although Harte broke Michigan's scoring record for freshmen, previously
held by Mike McGee, the Wolverines lost, 82-66.

GRAND RAPIDS (UPI) - A federal
judge has perpetuated a sex
discrimination suit against Michigan
State University by ruling that all
women playing varsity basketball for-
the past three years are included as
members of a class action.
U.S. District Judge Noel Fox certified
the suit, brought by Deb Traxinger in
1979, as a class action for all membes of
the women's varsity basketball team.
TRAXINGER'S suit charged sex
discrimination because women were
forced to sleep two to a bed and four to a
room when their basketball team
traveled while male varsity basketball
players were afforded their own bed
and double rooms during travel.
Jean King of Ann Arbor, Traxinger's
attorney, claimed the suit would be
moot if it were not extended to all
members of the womens' basketball
team because Traxinger is scheduled to
graduate this year.
Immediately after the lawsuit was
filed, Fox issued a temporary
restraining order baring the University
from treating women basketball
players differently from its men
basketball players. He later renewed
that order by issuing a preliminary in-
junction last spring.
