'M' TO FACE LAKERS IN WEEKEND SERIES

lcers look to be

By RICK KAPLAN
Incentive may be hard to come
by for the hockey team in this
weekend's home series against
Lake Superior State College. The
Wolverines clinched a playoff berth
4 last weekend, and they are vir-
tually eliminated from contention
for home ice.
But Michigan coach Red Beren-
son still has goals in mind.
"JUST because we've made the
playoffs shouldn't change things,"
Berenson said. "We'd still like to
finish strong.'
The'second-year head man would
like to improve on last season's
seventh-place finish. The task is
complicated because the two
teams ahead of Michigan, Ferris
State and Illinois-Chicago, both
beat the Wolverines three out of
four games.
"We want some momentum so
we can not just make the playoffs,
but make our mark in them,"~
Berensonsaid. "The wayhto do
that is to get some team confiden-.
ce."
MICHIGAN certainly will not be
overconfident against the Lakers.
}Lake Superior (18-13-1 overall, 15-
12-1 in the Central Collegiate
Hockey Association) has defeated
the Wolverines in all eight
meetings since Berenson took over

from John Giordano. The Laker
have a ten-game unbeaten strea
against Michigan, including a2
game sweep in the CCHA playoff
at Sault Ste. Marie last season.
"Lake Superior has had ou
number," Berenson said. "I don
see them as that much better tha
us. We always seem to catch then
on the rebound."
The Lakers will be trying b
rebound tonight from a 7-3 loss b
Ferris State last Saturday. "WV
have outchanced teams," sai
Lake Superior coach Frank An
zalone, "but we're not getting th
scoring we need from our uppe
classmen."

senior left winger Scott Johnso
(16-17-33) is tied for 25th in the con
ference. Lake Superior has n
players among the top fort
overall scorers.
"We're not going to outscoi
anyone 9-8," said Anzalone. "
we're going to win, we'll win wit
our defense."
Michigan, however, was defen
seless last Saturday at Illinoi
Chicago.Berenson is looking f
defensive improvement, but, &
always, offense remains the key.
"WE'RE CLOSER to our gam
when we're scoring goals," h

Superior
said. "We're a better team when
rs we score six or seven goals than
k when we're in a 2-1 game. We're
2 more consistent when we're
scoring.
Scoring on Lake Superior's :.
it goaltending duo will be a
t challenge. Juniors Joe Shawhan
(3.58) and Randy Exelby (3.67) are
" second and third among CCHA
goalies in overall goaltending.
to Shawhan is first in league
to goaltending, with a 3.13 mark.
e The only mark Anzalone desires
id is a fourth-place finish in the con-
n- ference. "Our goal is home ice,"
1e said the fourth-year coach, whose
r- team is only three points out of
third place behind Western
is Michigan. "We need home ice - if
e. we don't get it, our season is less
r, than we expected." '

in erenson expects an exciting "n-..
n- series. "I can't predict what will
1o happen," he said, "but I think
y you'll see two good games." s

Tankers in spotlight
for Hawkeye battle

By DEBBIE deFRANCES
Swimming before television lights
and cameras, the Michigan men's
swim team will be on center stage as
it takes on the 12th-ranked Iowa
Hawkeyes tonight, at 7:30 p.m. at.Matt
Mann Pool.
Cable television station Pro-Am
Sports System (PASS) will televise
the Wolverines, 14th in the nation, in
what Michigan head coach Jon Ur-
banchek says "should be a good
show."
"THIS MEET will be like a see-
saw, back and forth the whole way,"
said the fourth year coach. "These
teams are evenly matched from the
first relay to the last relay."
Both teams are also undefeated,
Michigan at 5-0 and Iowa at 6-0, and
are looking to stay that way until the
Big Ten Championships in a month.
But after tonight's dual meet, one of
these powerhouses will go into the
- conference championships with a
slight edge.
"Perhaps Iowa is a little bit favored
on paper because they have had some
faster times," Urbanchek admitted.
"But it should go down to the last
relay."
MICHIGAN, 25-1 under Urbanchek,
will be swimming with a strong squad
of 27. Urbanchek feels this will help
the Wolverines because they will not
be tired, and will have to perform as a
team.
"Nobody is a superstar, nobody has
a lot of pressure on them to win," Ur-
banchek said. "This will have to be a
team effort."
Michigan's strategy lies in the relay
races. "We're shooting for two good
relays, extremely good, so the
pressure is not just on one person,"
said Urbanchek. "It'll make it easier
on the individual events."
THE INDIVIDUAL races is where
Urbanchek thinks the Hawkeyes will
dominate.
"They have one swimmer, John
Davey, who is swimming three in-
dividual events and could win all
three," Urbanchek noted.
Although this is an important dual

meet for Michigan, its goals still lie
four weeks away in Indianapolis with
the Big Ten Championships. Coach Ur-
banchek feels this meet will be the
best preparation for the conference
meet.
"It'll be good to match up with
these boys (Iowa)," said Urbanchek.
"It should be an exciting dual meet
and give us a chance to see what
we're up against."
Urbanchek is not the only one who
thinks this meet will be down to the
wire. PASS will also be on hand.

By JEFF RUSH
The ball won't be the only object up
for grabs when it is tossed up to start
the second half of the Big Ten's
women's basketball campaign.
Michigan and its weekend opponen-
ts, Purdue and Illinois, are seeking
finishes in the league's upper division.
Not one of the three teams finished in
the top half of the Big Ten last year.
PURDUE AND Illinois both stand
at 4-5 in the Big Ten, while Michigan is
5-4. Two home wins would almost
guarantee the Wolverines a .500 finish
in the conference.
Michigan faces the Boilermakers at
7:30 tonight in a rematch of the game
that began an impressive string of
wins by the Wolverines. After beating
Purdue on the road, 71-68, Michigan
returned to Crisler Arena for wins
against Minnesota and nationally-
ranked Iowa.
Purdue starts a young lineup, with

only one senior starter. The team's
inexperience may explain some of its
earlier problems with defense.
Referring to the team's first game
against Michigan, Purdue coach Ruth
Jones said "Those young ladies (from
Michigan) were not pressured at all.
"WE HOPE to play better defense
(this time) by putting better pressure
on them," said Jones, referring
specifically to Michigan's Wendy
Bradetich and Lorea Feldman.
Leading the defensive charge for
Purdue will be junior forward Cathey
Tyree and sophomore guard Sharon
Versyp, a freshman All-America pick
last year.
Versyp is the floor general, and is
equally adept on offense and defense,
scoring 15.3 points per game and
hawking the ball when on defense.
Tyree averages 13.1 points per game,

and adds rebounding power down low.
The two were important in the
Boilermakers' win last Friday over
Illinois. Versyp collected six steals,
and Tyree grabbed nine rebounds in
the 72-55 victory. "They played great
defense against Illinois," said Jones.
Michigan coach Bud Van De Wege
does not seem overly concerned with
Versyp's potential for causing tur-
novers, but instead is worried about
the Wolverines' inside game. To
combat 6-4 Boilermaker center
Christa LaCroix, Van De Wege may

have to rely on 6-3 reserves Sharob
Sonntag and Val Hall. Sonntag came
off the bench in the earlier win to put
in ten points and grab five rebounds.
Michigan faces the fighting Illini on
Sunday, led by center Polk and for-
ward Angie McClellan. Van De Weg
is wary of both.
"They have one of the bette'
players in the league of Jonelle Poly,
and Angie McClellan is'a tough mat-
chup too. She is big enough and strong
enough as a forward, but she is quick
enough to be a guard."
