VAN DE WEGE'S TROOPS LOSE 9TH STRAIGHT
Coenen terrorizes women cagers I

Philling it Up

4

V

By Phil Nussel

By DAVE ARETHA
The Minnesota women's cagers,
featuring the barbaric play of forward
Laura Coenen, went on a barrage of
second-half scoring Sunday to ter-
minate a pesky Wolverine team 84-75.
The over-hustling but under-talented
Michigan cagers (1-12 in the Big Ten, 7-
16 overall) clawed their way to a 57-57
tie at the midpoint of the second half.
However, Minnesota (8-4, 13-9) then
rammed home 13 consecutive points to
destroy the Wolverines' hopes of an up-
set.
"WE WERE scrappin' and going at
'em," said Michigan coach Bud Van De
Wege, "but Minnesota woke up and
came alive."
Coenen was the most destructive
waking giant, scoring 24 of her 35 points
in the second period. The 6-1 senior also
broke more than just the Wolverines'

hearts. With her 33rd point she snapped
the Minnesota career scoring record.
Linda Roberts' career total of 1856 poin-

ts is no longer a Minnesota milestone.
"Coenen is explosive," Van De
Wege said. "You're not going to stop
her in the paint when she has the ball.
She jumps well - powers it up."
COENEN SHOT 14 for 20 from the
floor and pulled down 13 rebounds.
Molly Tadich, Minnesota's 6-3 center,
added 20 points and eight boards. For-
ward Carol Peterka also chipped in 12
points and 7 assists.
"Those three players are going to
beat you," Van De Wege said. "They'll
get the ball inside and they'll wear you
down."
Michigan burst out to an 8-0 lead and
maintained the intense pace for most of
the first half. The Wolverines held the
Gophers to within one at the inter-
mission, 40-39.
MICHIGAN continued its high-action
play for the first nine minutes of the

second half. But then they ran out of
juice. The Wolverines' fizzle, combined
with the Gopher awakening, accounted
for Minnesota's 13-point scoring binge.
"We came in ready to play and we
caught them," Van De Wege said.
"Minnesota came out a little flat. They
were tired early. But good teams will
eventually wake up. They woke up and
you've got to give them credit."
Despite their sluggish play in the
early going, Minnesota was wide awake
at the free throw line for the entire
game. The Gophers connected on 24 of
28 foul shots. Michigan was five for five
from the stripe.
The Wolverines, who have now lost
nine in a row, were led by Wendy
Bradetich and her 22 points. Kelly
Benintendi continued her strong play
for Michigan with 18 points.

A passing offense...
..as up in the air
The 1985 football recruiting wars are over. The players are signed, sealed,
and delivered to the college of their choice. Bo Schembechler is on vacation
and George Perles is through bragging about another banner recruiting
year.
Now it is time to analyze the Wolverines' recruiting in light of strategy -
specifically, offensive strategy.
The Michigan recruiting staff did some unusual things this year which in-
dicate that some offensive changes may be quite possible in the future.
" First of all, six quarterbacks were signed. This brings the number of
quarterbacks to ten. It seems obvious that the coaches are less than satisfied
with the four present quarterbacks, otherwise why use up the six scholar-
ships? Could a freshman be starting at quarterback in September?
" Two outstanding wide receivers were signed, Sean LaFountaine and An-
thony Mitchell. The receiving corps is looking better all the time.
" Out of the four offensive linemen inked, two - Bob DePalma of Mt.
Lebanon, Pa. and Pat Olszewski out of Conyers, Ga. - are known as out-
standing pass blockers. In addition, tight end Keith Mitchell, out of Southgate
Anderson, is strictly a receiver. His
blocking skills were suspect last season.
* Only one running back was signed this
year, that being John Kolesar of West
Lake, Ohio.
What all this adds up to is the possibility
of a pass-oriented attack by the
Wolverines in a few years.
But only the possibility. Keith Mitchell
expanded on this when reached last week.
"They recruited a couple of hot wide
receivers and they recruited me, and I'm
not a good blocking tight end," said Mit-
chell. "They're going to have to throw the
ball in order to be successful in the Big
Ten"
Indeed, the question, "Will Bo pass more Hanlon
this year" has been very popular the past few years among the Wolverine
faithful. And now that this year's recruiting is over, the answer to that
question could be yes - someday.
"Right now, I just think that we will probably make some changes in our
offenses," said quarterback coach Jerry Hanlon. "But just exactly what
direction we're going to go... I just don't know.
"The big thing is, I don't think we're going to base' what we're going to do
in football completely on our recruiting class, because you can't base what
you're going to do on somebody who's never even put on a uniform on a
college football field."
This brings up another point: can a recruiting year be evaluated as good or
bad right away?
Of course the Michigan State people, with their Detroit News rankings of
the area's best high school prospects, believe this can be done. Most football
people, however, believe it takes a good two years to analyze the quality of a
recruiting year - not high school press clippings.
"I think it's good press (high school press clippings)," Hanlon remarked.
"I think it's good to sell newspapers and all that. In order for them to be
recruited, they have to have a certain amount of skills to be considered, but
that doesn't mean that they're going to be able to take the situations and
pressures that occur in college.
"So you just don't know how they're going to react."
Without a doubt, very few freshman football players anywhere become an
important part of the team. This year, for example, Michigan played only
two freshmen - Erik Campbell and Jamie Morris. The year before, no
freshmen played for more than a few minutes all season. In fact, very few
sophomores ever see much playing time.
"About their (the players') junior year," Hanlon said. "Then you're star-
ting to find out which kids are going to play for you."
This, of course, shows the importance of a coaching staff in developing a
team's talent. It's a long, tedious process turning high school stars into
college stars and Michigan is fortunate to have a staff that is capable of
doing this right.
From what can be concluded about this year's recruits, the Michigan of-
fense could very well be headed for increased passing in the coming years.
But it is just too early to tell - trying to predict if Michigan is going to pass
more often is almost as hopeless as trying to predict if George Perles is
going to take his recruits to the Rose Bowl.
