Wolverines a good bet to
cash in chips versus Central
by Taylor Lincoln
Daily Basketball Writer

When the Wolverines take the court in Kalamazoo this evening against
Western Michigan, Michigan coach Bud VanDeWege expects to see a
different team than he did three days ago.
"What it was was kind of a 'waker-upper'," he said of his team's mere
15-point margin over underdog Akron. 'The team understands they did not
play well. But when we came back to practice, they came back ready. .
The Wolverines will have to be ready, risking a 3-0 record against their
toughest opponent of the young season. The Broncos, off to a 1-1 start'
have been led by guard Denise Kerby, who is averaging 12.5 points a game, {
and center Missy Omara, who has yanked down an average of 16 rebounds
per contest.
Michigan has been dealt the low hand in a 6-14 series record, and though
Western coach Jim Hess denies that his only game versus a Big Ten
opponent is bigger than the rest, he won't deny the game's tradition. "We've
always had a good rivalry. I don't think it's so much the Big Ten syndrome
as it is that they're in-state, and we've played each other every year."
As expected, most of Michigan's field goals have rolled off the fingers of,
gguard Tempie Brown, who averages 14.7 points per game, and forward
Tanya Powell, who averages 12.3 points per contest. Brown also has four
9teals, one assist and nine rebounds to go along with Powell's seven steals,
13 assists and 26 rebounds.
In addition to these standouts, Michigan's full court play has utilized
*most of the 17 players on the roster.
I feel very comfortable with what we're doing full court. It's early, so
we're making some mistakes, but it's getting better," VanDeWege said
Hess agrees: "Michigan has a pretty balanced attack - they have a good,
solid nucleus of about seven or eight people. They're bigger than us inside.
Tanya Powell (5-feet-11) is as good a player as we play against, and there's .
(Carol) Szczechowski, too (5-feet-10)." Michigan forward Sean Higgins guc
CCHA standings and statistics

Michigan basketball coach Steve Fisher is treating tonight's game
against Central Michigan (7:30 p.m., Crisler Arena) with the same caution
all coaches afford lesser teams.
"You've always got a chance," Fisher said. "They'll be a good MAC
team. Lesser teams than them have beaten better teams than us."
But CMU coach Charlie Coles is not overcome with enthusiasm at the
chance to bump off the defending national champs. "Would I be excited if
you threw me into a den of lions?" Coles asked. "We get beaten badly every
time we go down there. I don't think we need that right now. We're 1-3.
"I didn't schedule them, I'm not the athletic director," Coles added. "If I
had the opportunity now, I don't know if I would be playing them."
Led by Jeff Majerle, brother of former CMU star and Phoenix Suns
forward Dan Majerle, CMU's only win was an 80-78 upset home victory
over Wichita State.
The 6-foot-8 junior averages over 21 points per game and shoots 62
percent on three pointers. "Majerle's my only consistent scorer but he's not
doing well at the defensive end," Coles said. "He's still got a ways on the
other parts of his game."
Aside from Majerle, Central is inexperienced. Their only other healthy
returning player from last season's 12-16 team is Carter Briggs, who will 4
not start tonight, according to Coles.
The majority of CMU's players are either first year players or from the
junior college ranks. Of the frosh, center-forward Dennis Kahn is the most
prominent. Recruited by Michigan, Kahn scores eight points and grabs five
rebo~unds per game.
"Kahn is great. He's been playing great. Great vertical - over 40 inches.
He's got 'Michigan' talent," Coles said. "He's a country boy, he still needs
experience, but he'll be good."
