Blue spikers host 9th ranked Illini
and 16th ranked Boilermakers

By ALLEN GELDERLOOS
The women's volleyball team
opens their Big Ten season when
national powerhouses Illinois
and Purdue invade Ann Arbor
this-weekend.
Illinois, ranked 9th in the
nation and second in the Big Ten
last year, takes on the spikers
tonight while Purdue, 16th in the
nation and last year's Big Ten
champions, follow on tommorow
night.
"THESE TWO teams are the
biggest challenges of the Big Ten
season," said first year coach,
Joyce Davis.
Despite their lack of height, the
Michigan squad goes into this

weekend with a 5-3 record.
According to Davis, the problem
won't be the difference in size'
(both Illinois and Purdue have five
players over 6-0 as compared to
Michigan's two).
"We give up a definite size
advantage but we can play
equally above the net," she said.
DAVIS' main concern will be
Michigan's consistency.
"Consistency is critical to
contain momentum. If we let
(them) gain momentum, it's
over."
The Illini, (10-2), are coached
by last year's Big Ten Coach of the
Year, Mike Hebert. Despite last

season and a terrific recruiting
year, Hebert is cautious about
tonight's match.
"I DON'T know what to
expect," he said. He also added
that his team has "never played
well at Michigan."
In preparing for tonight's
match, Hebert commented that he
will be "trying to take care of our
side of the net because we don't
know much about Michigan."
"Taking care" of the Illini
offense will be two All-Big Ten
performers, junior setter Disa
Johnson and sophomore middle
hitter, Mary Eggers. Eggers also
received Big Ten freshmen of the

year honors.
After Illinois, things don't get
any easier for the Wolverines as
12th year coach Carol Dewey
brings her Boilermakers to Ann
Arbor on tommorow. Dewey is
excited about this weekend.
"THIS WEEKEND we finally
get to start Big Ten play," she
said.
Leading the Boilermakers will
be junior Linda Reichl and
Debbie McDonald. Reichl, an
outstanding all-around player,
was named to the 1986 pre-season

All-American second team,;wrfbiw
McDonald, leading the team in
kills per game (3.05), "will be
hard to contain," accord g to
Davis. , "
Despite the outstaing
statistics, Dewey said her tefam
still needs to improve in certain
areas. "We need to be betteilat
serving the ball aggresivel a{d
serving the ball in the court. '
MICHIGAN will look for
leadership to Lisa Vahi, team
leader in assists. n

AROUND THE BIG TEN:
Purdue hopes to,

keep Hol
The Boilermakers invade
South Bend to take on Lou Holtz's
winless Irish.
Purdue(1-1) is coming off a 41-
26 thrashing at the hands of
Pittsburgh, a game in which they
led 14-0 only to see the Panthers
run off 41 unanswered points.
FRESHMAN quarterback Jeff
George and cornerback Rod
Woodson, the Big Ten leader in
kickoff returns with a 39 yard
average, lead the Boilermakers.
Notre Dame is led by
quarterback Steve Beuerlein who
passed for 259 yards in last
weeks' 20-15 loss to Michigan
State. He also tossed two costly
interceptions, one that was
returned for a touchdown, and
another that thwarted the Irish's
final drive.
Flanker Tim Brown and
linebacker Mike Kovaleski are
both standouts.
Western Michigan at
Michigan State
Michigan quarterback Jim
Harbaugh's father Jack takes his
Broncos to East Lansing to
take on George Perles' Spartans.
On paper, the game looks like a
Spartan romp and a good
oppourtunity for Lorenzo White to
run up 200 plus yards and get his
name back in the Heisman hunt.

(z winless
HOWEVER, it took an 80 yard
drive culminating in a White
touchdown with 3:07 remaining
for the Spartans to avoid a major
upset last year, so anything is
possible.
Western quarterback Mike
Conklin threw for 1,574 yards and
10 TD's last year, while Lewis
Howard gained 819 yards
rushing, and flanker Paul Sorce
caught 47 passes for 567 yards.
Texas El-Paso at Iowa
Another cakewalk for Hayden
Fry's Hawkeyes. Iowa has
already destroyed such
"powerhouses" as Iowa State (43-7)
and Northeern Illinois (57-3).
Texas-El Paso should be no
different. The Miners were were
1-10 last year and have already
doubled that total at 2-2.
Iowa leads the Big Ten in
seven of 12 statistical categories
and is ranked 13th by UPI and
15th by AP. They have averaged
523 yards a game and 50 points
while only allowing five.
The numbers sound
impressive, but we won't know
how good the Hawkeyes are until
next week when they travel to
Michigan State for a televised
(contest with the Spartans.
Around the Big Ten was compiled
b Daily sportswriter John
usband.

Now there's a programmable scien-
tific calculator that solves even the
most complex math, engineering
and science problems in a BASIC
way. The TI-74 BASICALC.
Unlike most other programmable
calculators that require you to learn
a new, complicated system of key-
stroke commands -in effect. a new

has more calculating power than
comparably-priced programmables.
Your basic specs: I

And a variety of options, like soft-
ware cartridges, are available that
make it even more powerful and
convenient.

" Operates as a calculator or
BASIC computer
8K RAM expandable to 16K
RAM
70 built-in scientific functions

Stop by and see the TI-74
BASICALC for yourself. In basic
terms, what it really offers you is
a bargain.
