M women prevail in
tough game with WMU

BY TAYLOR LINCOLN
The Michigan hockey team
headed into last weekend's non-
league games at Boston College and
Boston University winless in its
past four games and in its past six
home contests.
Head coach Red Berenson was
cautiously optimistic about his
team's slump, citing a preponderance
of close games and good efforts.
"Sometimes when a team is in a
slump they will play a really bad
game and things will bottom out,"
Berenson said. "We're not at that
point yet."
The Wolverines continued their
trend of losing tight games Friday
night versus Boston College. They
dominated the game before BC
scored two power play goals within
ten seconds to hand Michigan a
heartbreaking 5-3 setback.
SATURDAY night Boston
University routed Michigan, 9-3.
Things bottomed out.
"I hope we've seen the worst of
it," said Berenson. "(Against BU)
our power play was sparadic, our
penalty killing was anemic, our
offense was nonexistent at times."
Anything else, Red?
"We cost ourselves the weekend
by taking penalties we shouldn't
have. We were undisciplined."
YES, penalties played a role in
the weekend caper. The Wolverines,
who lead the CCHA in penalty
killing for league games, yielded
nine power-play goals in the two
games. They had given up a total of
11 power-play goals in the fourteen
preceeding games.
So long, Boston.
Last weekend's non-league losses
were important because non-
conference games will be used by the
NCAA to determine at-large bids for
its 12 team tournement field.
The CCHA will almost certainly
qualify two teams, and will likely

qualify three. "The third team in our
league might be us," Berenson said.
"But these non-conference games can
play a role how you are rated as a
team, whether or not you deserve to
be in."
DESPITE the recent down-
swing, though, the Wolverines have
not done irreparable damage to their
season's prospects.
They are in third place in the
CCHA - still an optimistic start.
Especially for a team whose goal
heading into the season was to finish
in the top four to gain home-ice
advantage for the league playoffs.
"This is not a major crisis,"
Berenson said. "It's a low point of
the first part of the season."
But the next two weekends will
be pivotal. This weekend Michigan
plays a home and home series versus
first place Michigan State -
unaminously ranked no. 1 in the
nation in both major college polls.
The following weekend Michigan
will travel to second place Illinois-
Chicago.
The implications are apparent.
"We've got to snap out the slump,
because the next four games we play
could really bury us," Berenson said.
"We're not going into (the State
series) with a lot of momentum, but
maybe we need something like this
to get our team going."

BY ADAM BENSON
Lorea Feldman started Tuesday
night's game against Western
Michigan with a black eye and
swollen lip. The Broncos tried to
dish out more bodily damage to slow
her down.
But Feldman and her teammates
on the Michigan women's basketball
team rejected the invitation to this
wrestling match and won, 73-62.
"We were lucky to be up by 10 at
the half," coach Bud VanDeWege
said. "It surely wasn't because of
what we did offensively. Defense
definitely keyed the win for us."
In the first half, the Wolverines'
press held the Broncos to 26 points
and forward Kim Barrier to just four.
She entered averaging 17.3 per game.
Wolverines forward Tanya
Powell, despite playing 35 out of the
40 minutes with a bad cold, did the
dirty work such as setting picks on
offense and playing physical on the

boards. She also scored 14 points.
"Tanya is a thinker, and she is
sharp out there," VanDeWege said.
"Tanya is so tough on the boards and
inside, and this is a game that is
good for her."
Powell said: "As a leader and a
captain, I felt like I was supposed to
step up and take charge. I guess
that's what (VanDeWege) expected
from me, and I tried to do that."
Three other Wolverines hit double
figures. Tempie Brown scored 17;
Feldman, 16; and center Joan Rieger,
11. But most impressive to VanDe-
Wege was the Wolverines' ability to
hold the lead down the stretch, which
they could not do in their loss to
Central Michigan last weekend.
"If one thing feels good the most,
it's that we held them off,"
VanDeWege said. "We've not been
able to demonstrate in two games
that we could do that."
