Women's and Men's Swimming
BY ADAM BENSON
An old show with a new look
will open at Crisler Arena tomorrow
night. Michigan women's basketball
team begins its 1988-89 season with
an exhibition game against the
University of Toronto.
Michigan will present its show-
stopping shooting combo of forward
Lorea Feldman and guard Tempie
Brown. Feldman (16.4 points per
game in 1986-87) returns to the
Wolverines after missing last season
because of academic problems.
During her absence, Brown (14.8
ppg last season) became the headliner
for Michigan. The Brown/Feldman
tandem should be one of the Big
Ten's top scoring tandems this
To get Feldman, Michigan's
fourth all-time leading scorer, into
the lineup, Michigan coach Bud
VanDeWege moved forward Carol
Szczechowski to off guard and Brown
to the point guard spot. Another dif-
ference in the lineup is center Joan
Rieger, replacing the ineligible Lisa
Reynolds in the middle.

The only starter from last season
returning to her same position is
Tanya Powell at power forward.
Powell, an Academic All-Big Ten,
was the sixth-leading rebounder in
the Big Ten last season.
No one is more curious to see the
results of these changes in the cast
than VanDeWege himself. Brown,
Feldman and company will score,
but Toronto has some quality players
as well. So, VanDeWege will be
looking for his team to execute in
other parts of the game.
"I would like to think that we'll
be quicker and that we can create
some things defensively," said
VanDeWege. "If you sit back and let
them get into the half-court game,
they'll shoot the lights out of you.
We can't afford to let that happen."
Toronto can surprise the
Wolverines if Michigan approaches
this game lightly. Guard Mary Ann
Kowal is one of Canada's finest
scorers, averaging 20.4 ppg. The
Wolverines will have to handle
Kowal with care because she is a
92% shooter at the free throw line.
First-year center Denise Scott will
pose a solid defensive challenge for
the untested Rieger.
"(Toronto) had four people who
played on the Canadian National

They say that there's no rest for
the weary, but who ever said the
weary need rest?
The undefeated Michigan women's
swimming team, despite having
looked tired at times, is progressing
at a more than satisfactory rate. The
Wolverines have performed well in
wins against Bowling Green and
Iowa. But during the early part of the
season, teams rarely get a chance to

Wisconsin, and Wolverine assistant
coach Kara McGrath is confident that
Michigan (2-0) will be ready.
"Teams don't rest in November
for a dual meet," McGrath said. "But
they are looking better this week. I
think that their bodies have adjusted
to the workload."
Michigan's swimmers have,
looked strong early. Senior Susie
Rabiah, along with juniors Gwen
DeMaat and Stephanie Liebner have
all turned in excellent performances
in the Wolverines first two meets.
The Badgers (3-0) have started
strong as well, with victories over
Iowa State, Iowa, and Northern
Illinois. They have some individuals
who should challenge Michigan's
best. "Some of their individual
standouts should give our girls good
races," said McGrath.
In freestyle, junior Suzanne
Wilkinson leads the team. Other
Wisconsin performers who have
looked good early include breast-
strokers Carol Wilder and Rochelle
Smith, and medley swimmer Tracy

The Michigan volleyball team is
hoping to extend its winning streak
tonight against conference foe
Purdue. "It was a great win for
them," said Purdue head coach Carol
Dewey, re-ferring to the Wolverines
first conference victory against Iowa,
Despite the streak being at only
one game, Michigan coach Joyce
Davis feels confident that the team
can continue its winning ways.
"If we can execute our defense and
middle* offense (which has been
practiced this week), thenhwe feel
like we have a pretty good chance
against Purdue," said Davis.
The Wolverines entered their first
match against Purdue with an 0-8
conference record, but according to
Dewey: "We were taking them very
seriously because we had been
struggling ourselves. I felt they.
would be strong the first time."
But Michigan never got its game
on track losing, 15-1, 15-10, 15-8.
"Hopefully we can pick out some
of their (Purdue) vulnerabilities,"
said Davis, "but they are a good team
and they do have Debbie McDonald.
Despite all the attention given to
McDonald, the Boilermakers best
outside hitter, she has had a back
injury since the end of September.
According to Dewey, while
McDonald has been doing well, she
has not played as well as she did last
season when she garnered first team
All-Big Ten honors.
"We know (against Purdue) we're
going to really have to do a good job
against McDonald as she tore us up
last time," said Davis. "We're not
go-ing to be able to stop her totally,
but we have to be able to contain

During Michigan's losing streak,
