Blue's emphasis on the future
leaves veteran Loeher out

BY ADAM BENSON
AND LORY KNAPP
Junior guard Barb Loeher, a fan
favorite for her hard play during the
1988-89 women's basketball season,
has had her scholarship revoked so
that it can be used by an incoming
first-year student.
Loeher began her career with the
Wolverines as a walk-on, but her
hard work and intensity earned her a
scholarship for her sophomore year
at Michigan. Although she has not
seen much playing time during her
two years with the Wolverines, she
is considered to be an important part
of the Michigan team. In fact, the
team awarded her the Hustler Award
at the end of this season.
"(Barb) gave the starting guards
competition in practice, she really
gave them problems," said grad-
uating player Mary Rosowski. "She
really helped them prepare for game
situations. She knows what to do,
she will look to the person who can
make the shot and she is great on
defense."
EVEN THOUGH she had been
recognized for her efforts this season,
Loeher was not surprised when
Michigan coach Bud VanDeWege
informed her of his decision.
"I was expecting this to happen,"
said Loeher. "I saw that he had re-
cruited six people, putting seventeen
people on the team and there was no
way we had scholarships for every-
body."

away."
That feeling will affect het
impending decision.
"He (VanDeWege) told me that
he'd love to have me back," Loeher
said. "No way is he trying to deter
me from playing next year. (But)
with six new people and seven
guards I would be at the bottom of
the list and I'd have to work my way
up. It is like a step down from this
year.
Rosowski said: "I think it's
important that people have got to
play together - that was something
the coach has stressed all season. To
bring in six new people seems to be
taking the opposite route."
Even though she had never had a
dramatic increase in her playing
time, Loeher was one of two players
on the Michigan squad who had a
positive turnover/takeaway ratio,
something that is critical for a good
point guard.
"There was nothing negative
regarding Barb, (but) we had plans
relative to our recruiting that we
needed to accomplish," said Van-
DeWege.
"If I was making the decision
emotionally, it would be Barb, but it
was a professional one."

'Boilers look to
BY STEVEN COHEN
Michigan baseball coach Bud Middaugh often
senses that other teams, particularly non-conference
teams, treat a meeting with the Wolverines like it is
the World Series.
If Middaugh has gotten that impression from the
likes of Grand Valley State and Eastern Michigan, he
will undoubtedly feel the same when Purdue (19-10, 3-
5 Big Ten) comes to town this weekend for double-
headers on Saturday and Sunday.
Two weeks ago, Northwestern, which played like
Mildcats before facing the Wolverines, battled Mich-
igan to four low-scoring defensive games led by great
pitching.
The Boilermakers, who have gotten outstanding
pitching this season, look to have similar low-scoring
games this weekend. Purdue, which finished dead last
in the conference last season is a team with hopes of
making the conference playoffs by finishing in the top
r four in the Big Ten. Purdue coach Dave Alexander,
who has an 8-30 career record against Michigan, would
like to accomplish at least a split this weekend to

play spoilers
work toward that end.
Michigan (24-8,5-2) has won its past four games
and nine of its last 11. Strong pitching and timely
hitting has propelled the Wolverines into third place in
the conference behind Iowa (5-1) and Illinois (6-2).
THROUGHOUT the course of the season, several
different players have shone when called upon. For
Middaugh, who continually stresses the importance of
team play, this has to be pleasing.
The Wolverines pitching staff, which ranks among
the best in the Big Ten, will face an equally imposing
Boilermaker staff.
Purdue, despite losing best pitcher Pete Altenberger
for the weekend, expects to contain the Wolverines in
Fisher Stadium, known as a pitchers park. Last sea-
son, Michigan won all four games at West Lafayette,
where the ball travels a lot better.
Lefthander John Carrico leads Purdue hurlers with a
6-0 mark, and 47 strikeouts in 47 innings. Sophomore
outfielder Dave Scheitlin, hitting ,351, and senior
slugger Mike Galle have paced Purdue to a .287 team
batting average.

Loeher

VanDeWege added: "We had to be
realistic and we had the opportunity
to bring in some outstanding fresh-
men."
VanDeWege also said that there
was an understanding when Loeher
received the scholarship that it might
not be renewed the following year.
Loeher said: "I've always known
in that back of my mind that (losing
the scholarship) was a possiblity.
But I felt that it might depend on my
performance, and I felt that I
performed well this year. That is
why, although I was forewarned, I
was very disappointed that he took it
