Bud's team looking to keep
winning ways intact vs. MSU
BY ADAM BENSON
Last month, the Michigan State women's basketball team stymied
the Michigan offense on their way to a 47-45 victory at East Lansing.
Currently, the Spartans are holding their opponents to a 39 percent
shooting percentage from the field.
Yet Michigan coach Bud VanDeWege looks for more offense tonight
when the two teams have their rematch at Crisler Arena, "I expect a lot
more points to be scored, both teams will put a lot more points on the
The Spartans (14-9 overall; 8-5 Big Ten (fourth place)) have one of
the tallest frontcourts in the conference with forward Dawn DeYoung and
center Sue Forsyth, both six-footers.
However, the Wolverines have improved greatly in recent weeks,
winning three of their last five games. Center Val Hall and for-ward Joan
Rieger have combined to form a strong set up front for Michigan.
"Our confidence is high right now," said VanDeWege about his teams
recent streak, "we are playing our best ball of the season."
The Wolverines will also be helped by having guard Tempie Brown
back in the lineup. She did not make the trip to Michigan State last time
and the Wolverine scoring output was below average.
As Burson is off the court,
the Buckeyes just fade away
COLUMBUS - Ohio State showed up to
play last night but something was missing out
on the court.
This six-foot guard is better known around
Columbus as "the leader." But against Michigan,
all Jay Burson could do was sit on the bench and
watch his teammates try and discover their own
For the Buckeye players, it wasn't just a
matter of wreaking revenge on Michigan for last
month's trouncing in Ann Arbor. Ohio State
wanted to show that a fractured vertebrae in the
neck of their player-of-the-year candidate could be
"You could see in their eyes that they really
wanted the game," Michigan center Loy Vaught
said. "But you could also see with every given
down, and from watching last night's game, one
can easily ascertain why.
Burson meant leadership. The senior ran the
offense, ran the fast-break, lead the transition
defense.... He did the intangibles necessary for a
team to win.
"Jay was our leader," sophomore center Perry
Carter said. "When it was crunch time, we could
go to him. We are still looking for someone to
step forward and take over that leadership role."
On offense, Ohio State players stood around
as if they were expecting a miracle from heaven.
And after every miss, players could only look
over with despair at coach Gary Williams, who
doing everything he could to eke out a victory.
But it was not ordained to be.
Michigan players and coach Bill Frieder
empathized with Ohio State, but it didn't matter.
The player the Buckeyes usually turn to was
sitting on the bench in a red sweat shirt, his head
being kept immobile by a brace screwed in in
"One reason it hurts is not being able to play
these last seven games and hopefully the
tournament," Burson said yesterday. "To put in
all this time to get to where I wanted to be -
the leader, to be the one they go to in the stretch
- and all of a sudden, it's gone."
Added Michigan coach Bill Frieder: "They are
never gonna be as great as they would have been
A loss to Michigan, yet the season is not over
for Ohio State. But losing a leader with no
replacement in sight could make March seem a
long ways away for this group of Buckeyes.

Ohio State is now 0-2 since

him. You can only try to contain
him. He can do whatever he wants
on the court."
That was true, not only for
Robinson, but for the whole
Michigan team in the first half. The
Wolverines shot 57 percent from the
field in jumping out to a 45-26
halftime lead over the previously-
ranked Buckeyes, who were playing
without Big Ten Player-of-the-Year
candidate Jay Burson, who was out
with a broken vertebrae in his neck.
The 26 points was Ohio State's
lowest halftime point total of the

was not coming out with the
intensity needed to play Michigan,"
said Williams, whose team shot 35
percent from the floor in both halfs.
"We just couldn't getit going in the
Sophomore center Perry Carter,
the team's leading scorer with
