Last night the Lady Crusaders
earned their name, and in a style
that was less than holy. It was the
size, strength, and overall inside
game of the Holy Cross women's
basketball team that overwhelmed
the Wolverines in their first game
of the season. The final score was
For Michigan it was not a night
of auspicious beginnings as two out
of the Wolverines' first three offen-
sive possessions produced airballs.
Holy Cross pressed full court from
the start and the Wolverines
crumbled under the pressure.
"OUR BALLHANDLERS lost
their poise," said Michigan coach
Bud Van De Wege.
It was a horrible sight as almost
every Wolverine threw passes
away, traveled or found another
more imaginative way to cough the
ball up. Sophomore forward Lorea
Feldman said they "knew the
press was coming," but still
''really hurt ourselves."
For Michigan the only bright
ers s pec
spots in a dismal first half were
Feldman's team leading four
rebounds and sophomore guard
Sarah Basford's team high six
BASFORD CAME off the bench
to score all her points on long
range shooting. Suffice it to say
Basford does not have to be

pleaded with to shoot. Said Van De
Wege of his 5-8 gunner, "She's a
good outside shooter but she had
some problems with the press. But
she's a real solid player. She'll be
playing for us all year."
Michigan came out looking like a
different team in the second half.
The Wolverines used a press them-
selves throughout the remainder of
the game. The press was effective
as Van De Wege explained: "It
definitely worked. It forced them
into turnovers although they even-
tually settled down."
Settle down they did, but not
before Michigan mounted an ir-
pressive rally. The score was
within eight for much of the second
half. Sophomore Kelly Benintendi
and Feldman led the surge with
tough jumpers down the stretch.
But when Feldman fouled out the
Wolverines were done for the
night. Feldman and Benintendi led
Michigan with twelve points
apiece. Holy Cross was led by Jean
Buckley and Cheryl Aaron who
both had 18.

Alien Nation -
Ann Arbor is finally beginning to
witness the emergence of a crop of
hard rockin' emotional bands that
assault our processed University
minds with more than just a silly par-
ty backdrop at Rick's on Friday
night. Alien Nation is one of them.
And more will be coming soon.
Although Alien Nation are based in
Birmingham and Southfield, and
predominantly play the Detroit club
circuit, they also qualify as an Ann
Arbor rock thang due to the fact that
half of their line-up goes to school
here. Having emerged in the summer
of '84, this is their first vinyl venture.
It's obvious that these ambassadors
were influenced by the LA hardcore
happenin' around 1980 combined with
the more prophetic street-based,
English, nasty hardcore action. But
they aren't beating a dead horse.
They take that quasi-adolescent
relentless energy level and fuse it
with the dirty and gritty mess of The
Stooges and add a slice of the darker,
gothic strains of the subliminal Sisters

Usually when a wrestling team,
finishes second in a tournament, the
coach can walk away satisfied, but
Michigan coach Dale Bahr must first
be concerned about the injuries suf-
fered last weekend at the Ohio Open in
John Fisher (shoulder), Joe Pan-
taleo (sprained ankle), and Tony
Latora (broken nose) came away with
FISHER'S INJURY was most
significant. His recurring shoulder
problem forced him to default in the
finals against Steve DePetro of
The severity of Fisher's injury is
uncertain at this time. "We're going
to have to make some decisions based
on what the doctor says," said Bahr.
"We're really concerned about John
because he's a key man on our team
and we've got to have him," he added.
THE WOLVERINES' injuries
might have actually prevented them
from winning the tournament. Eighth-
ranked Wisconsin edged Michigan,
So we get four songs that dabble in
the darker side of existence, per-
sistence, and resistance, while
keeping the basic monster that
rock'n'roll is, in the forefront. "Agen-
ts of Faith" has a biting sound and a
Gang of Four-ish bassline that
propels it along meanly.
"Anhedonia" is slower, and has a
haunting feel due to the subtle
background voice gliding of a guest
female singer and the lead singer's
stinging contemptuous howl. "Grave
321" is the fastest and musically
strongest, with a full guitar attack
that doesn't crush it's own needs.
Finally, "Last Rites" finishes things
off with its thrashy and trashy drums
and blaring guitar, though the
arrangement isn't as strong as the
One obvious set-back is the produc-
tion and pressing. Both are weak, but
then that's really to be expected on a
first release on an extremely limited
budget due to lack of financial
backing.dThe E.P. can be picked up at
"On the whole, I was pleased with
our performance," Bahr said.
"Wisconsin is one of the best teams in
the nation, and we'll get to face them
at least four more times."
Doug Wyland (118), Rickey Moore
(142), and Kirk Trost (Heavyweight)
all advanced to the finals with Trost
winning the heavyweight crown.
TROST'S CLOSEST match was a 7-
... shoulder problems
1 decision in the finals against John
Potts of Toledo.
Bahr praised Trost, the number-one
ranked heavyweight in the country.
"Trost really looks confident, and he
continues to dominate opponents.
He's wrestling as good as I've ever
seen him wrestle."
Trost was a little disappointed with
his opponents. "I thought it (the com-
petition) would be more difficult," he
said, "but some of the wrestlers were
not in that good of shape."
Wyland, a freshman from Pit-
tsburgh, Pa., performed well in losing
a close championship match to
Cleveland State's Paul Kapper, 7-5.

Subtle Steven Wright gives deadpan delivery at the Power Center Friday
with a twist
-By Seth Flicker
H E'S HARD WORKING ("I'm
writing a book, I have the page
numbers done. Now I just have to fill
in the rest"), He's inquisitive
("What's a synonym for
thesaurus?"), he's confused ("Today
I was ... no that wasn't me") but most
of all, Steven Wright, who played at
sthe Power Center Friday night, is
The hilarity was non-stop. The
monotone man delivered his deadpan
jokes to perfection, keeping the
audience laughing all night.
"I didn't develop my monotone
style. It's just me. I go out and tell
jokes. It's just natural," said Wright.
,,Wright got his start at a comedy
club in Boston at an open-mike night.
The response was good so he kept on
going back, until he was discovered
by Johnny Carson.
"I had wanted to be a comedian
since I was 16," said Wright, "before
that, I just wanted to be younger."
The key to Wright's humour is its
subtlety. Sometimes it is so subtle
tiat it takes a few seconds to under-
stand. ("I'm experiencing deja vu and
amnesia at the same time"). The
jokes are crisp and clear and, through
his deadpan style, he brings life to the
lines, ("Just once I would like to see
that dog rip the fuckin' shreds out of
that Chuck wagon in the dog food
"I write all my own jokes," said
Wright, "I never go looking to write a
joke. Sometimes, I just get inspired
After his Tonight Show appearance,
Wright's career catapulted. Wright
even made his acting debut with
Madonna in Desperately Seeking
"It's been a fairy tale," he admits.
"I never thought that I would go this
far. It's beyond all my fantasies. I'm
just very lucky."
The aspect that most people con-
nect Steven Wright with is his poker
face delivery. It seems, though, that
Wright is moving out of his type-cast.
During the concert, he seemed more
animated than usual, he even played
guitar. "Oh, I smiled," quipped
Wright during the show, "now they
won't pay me."
"I like doing college campuses but
they're a harder audience than
most," said Wright. "You can't get
away with any half-assed stuff." And
Friday night, nothing was half-assed
about Steven Wright.
