Cagers,
By MICHAEL SALINSKY
Confidence.
It's something every team needs.
Something a young team like the
Michigan women's basketball squad
especially needs.
Judging from the results of the
past two weeks, confidence is some-
thing the Wolverines are gaining
rapidly.
The most recent evidence occurred
Sunday in Champaign with a 76-68
pasting of a talented Illinois team, a
squad recently ranked number 20 by
both Associated Press and the USA
Today. The victory came after a loss
to Purdue in the Big Ten opener
Friday night, 70-55.
"We had a lot of confidence going
into Illinois," said Michigan head
coach Bud VanDeWege. "They
played Illinois really close last year,
and that was when they had (all-Big
Ten center Jonelle) Polk."
MICHIGAN staked out a 38-24
halftime lead en route to victory.
The 14-point lead was actually ex-
tended in the second half before Illi-

surprise
nois narrowed the gap in the waning
moments of the game to the final
eight-point spread.
Tempie Brown did everything for
Michigan. The sophomore guard led
all scorers with 22 points. She also
pulled down six rebounds, con-
tributed three assists, and blocked
two shots. The Wolverines' lone se-
nior, Vonnie Thompson, led all
players with five assists to go along
with her 13 points.
Lisa Reynolds, on a five-game
tear that included a 32-point perfor-
mance against Bowling Green was
on the verge of passing Brown as the
team's leading scorer. Reynolds,
though, was plagued by foul trouble
Sunday, scoring only six points.
Brown picked up the slack with five
for 12 shooting and 10 important
points from the foul line.
Before the loss to Purdue, Michi-
gan had won six straight non-
conference games, four by less than
10 points.
"We had to pull some games out
in the end," said VanDeWege,

Illinois
"which created a lot of confidence."
THE WIN streak was snapped
by Purdue in West Lafayette. The
game was closer than the score indi-
cated. The Boilermakers blew open a
six-point halftime lead early in the
second half. Senior center Christa
LaCroix led Purdue with 18 points
and eight rebounds.
Despite the loss, the Wolverines
were pleased to go on the road
against two teams that finished in

76-68

the top half of the conference and
come away with a split. Michigan
lost its first three conference games
last season on the way to a 2-16,
last place finish.
"You get a couple of wins early,"
said VanDeWege, "and you begin to
believe in yourself."
The victory over the Illini, which
VanDeWege called a "great win,"
combined with an impressive 8-3
record seems a sign of and should be
a source of - confidence.

Heated battle in ,goal...
...will the winner stand up?
By JULIE HOLLMAN
Ladies and Gentlemen, welcome to Yost Ice Arena and the second
half of the 1987-88 hockey season. In this corner we have the
challenger- with a record of four wins, three losses, weighing 200
pounds, Michigan goalie Glen Neary. In the opposite corner we have
the champion- with a record of 10 wins, eight losses, weighing 185
pounds, Michigan goalie Warren Sharpes.
The odds on Neary vs. Sharples have been fluctuating for several
weeks, and now there is no clear line of advantage on either player.
The bettors are looking at an even spread. The fans are ready for a
tough fight.
The buzzer sounds, and the two men emerge from their corners.
Both players look strong in the early going and possess the
confidence of their teammates in their corners.
Neary strikes first, releasing a shot, but Sharples, with the quick
glove hand, saves himself from damage and immediately counters.
Neary stands in and bats the blow away, awing the crowd. The shots
keep soaring toward Neary. Despite being knocked on his heels, he
reacts quickly to make some dazzling saves. Sharples too lives up to
his reputation as a reflex goalie by continuing to make the big plays.
THIS IS THE first time since last season that Neary and
Sharples have fought head to head. Sharples has been the star and
attention getter. He has seen most of the action while Neary's been
watching from the sidelines.
But when the man in control, head coach Red Berenson, ushered in
the new year he also ushered in a new goalie, Neary. Now both Neary
and Sharples are fighting for Berenson's confidence and praise.
Sharples started the new year sluggishly and was beaten up by1
Eastern opponents in the recent Yale tournament. The fans turned to
the challenger to replace Sharples. Neary cunningly stole the
spotlight by turning in two sparkling performances and by gaining a
victory.
This sudden taste of victory, though, was foreign to Neary's
palate. At this time last year Neary recorded his first win in eight
tries.
The buzzer sounds for the end of the first period. It's a tight°.
contest. Both players scored points with the judges. Each goalie
shined at times by turning away blistering shots from all sides.
The scoring is close but Sharples emerges with a slight advantage
due to his agility and quick reaction.
AS THE SECOND period begins the crowd gets nervous. The
fans are well aware of each goalie's tendency to slack off in the later
periods. Sharpies has admitted to suffering from mental lapses, and
Neary has blown four goal leads.
Play continues and both goalies still look physically strong, but
like the pessimistic fans predicted, the daizling saves become less,:
frequent. Neary takes a hard shot from the right which gets by
Sharples. Sharples fails to react and the shots keep coming. After one
gets by the flood gates seem to open as several bullets rip through4
Sharples.
The crowd cheers on Neary. He appears to be emerging as the
stronger of the two goalies. But wait. Now Neary too breaks down,
and the points rack up against him.
The buzzer sounds for the end of the second period. After some
encouraging words from their corners the two goalies come out for
the final frame. The word on Neary says he gets nervous in the third
period when the going gets tough. Sharples also has found hard times
in the last period. No lead is safe with either player.
NEARY RELEASES a sizzling shot but Sharples is able to
snag it with his glove, a fabulous save. "That's the kind of talent you
have. Why don't you use it," yells a fan.
As the clock winds down, both goalies treat the crowd to some
amazing plays but on each side the damage has been done.
The buzzer sounds for the final time. The match is over. The fans
noisily await the judge's decision. "Neary looks better than
Sharples," argues one fan. "No, Sharples is much better. He's more
experienced and he's a lot quicker," says another.
That's true on both accounts. Both Neary and Sharples looked
great at times but neither could register a total performance. Who can
Michigan fans trust with their confidence? That decision is up to the
judge Berenson.
So who's the champ, the winner, the number one goalie? Neary
and Sharples await the judgement side by side.
Ladies and Gentlemen, the judge rules - no decision.
