Blue to risk perfect
record vs. Bobcats

When the womens' basketball
team faces Ohio University tonight
in Crisler Arena, the Wolverines
will definitely have firsts on their
This will be the first meeting ever
between the two squads. And though
the Bobcats' record is only 2-2,
Michigan coach Bud VanDeWege is
cautiously aware of the fragility his
4-O record carries.
"Ohio U. is extremely tough in-
side," he said. I have a real strong
concern, based on the fact that we
have not been very strong inside."
Among the Bobcats who will try
to hand Michigan its first loss are
center Dawn Heidman and guard/
forward Kelly Weir. Weir averages
11.3 points per game, and Heidman
has tallied an average of 13.3 points
per game with an impressive 11.3
Only two Michigan players, Trish
Andrew and Tanya Powell, are aver-
aging over five boards.
But Powell's rebounding is part of
a bigger picture. Having entered the
season as Michigan's third all-time
leading rebounder, Powell has
already passed the former number
two player, Lorea Feldman (610

Abby Currier, who played from
1978 to 1981 and totaled 747
rebounds, is the only one left for
Powell to beat. She needs to average
just over five boards a game for the
rest of the year to break Currier's
"I'm right on track-it's one of
my goals this year," Powell said.
The senior forward, however, has
not forgotten her team in the run for
number one. "It's important for me
to rebound; if I don't, I don't think
I've played a good game."
VanDeWege is also enthused. "I
like to see all those records over-
taken. I recruited her to rebound. I
knew that was going to happen
when she came here, and she's done
exactly that. So I think it's very
fitting that she gets it."
Other Wolverines to watch will be
junior co-captain Carol Szcze-
chowski, who hit six of eight field
goals and both her free throw
attempts against Western Michigan
on Wednesday, and Leslie Spicer,
who contributed 12 points in only
16 minutes of floor time.
Michigan guard Carol Szczechowski drives the ball down the floor.
Forward Joan Rieger is downcourt on the wing. Szczechowski whips the
ball across court. Rieger grabs it and goes in for an easy lay-up.
6'3" Wolverine center Val Hall posts up against an 6'0" opposing
center. Hall gets the ball and pops from three feet.
First-year forward Trish Andrew rebounds Hall's missed shoot, and
pushes the ball towards the net from a foot out.
Missed lay-ups and wasted opportunities have slowed the women's
basketball team's pace against their pre-Big Ten season opponents. When
the Wolverines took on Eastern Michigan last Thursday, Hall didn't make a
single field goal in eight tries. In the same game Andrews went 3-9. Against
Akron on Sunday, Rieger went 0-6. And Wednesday night, Hall struggled to
make one bucket in ten tries against Western Michigan.
"It's a mystery to me." said Michigan coach Bud VanDeWege.
As a whole, however, the team shooting percentage is well above 40%.
Szczechowski, guard Tempie Brown, and forward Leslie Spicer have each
been hitting shots from beyond fifteen feet. Michigan's outside shooting has
spread the defenses and sparked the last three Wolverine wins. But it will be
extremely difficult for all three to maintain their touch throughout the year.
What's disturbing is the competition Michigan has faced has been greatly
outmatched in height and weight.
"We were a better team physically and that's why we won the game,'
VanDeWege said after beating the Akron Zips, 76-61. "We did not execute
or out-play them in any facet of the game."
Offensive execution is part of the problem. The Wolverines have been
setting brilliant screens to free the small forwards on the wing, but inside,
the picks have been almost non-existent. A major reason why Hall is strug-
gling is the fact that she has had defenders in her face a majority of the time.
Another factor could just be nerves. Andrews has made several baskets
from outside eight feet. But for some reason she ends up rushing and
sending up awkward shots towards the backboard while in the paint.
Hopefully the pre-season jitters will smooth out. Come January 5th, the
Wolverines' size advantage will shrink to zip as the Big Ten season begins.
Michigan guard Carol Szczechowski hopes to lead the Wolverines past
Ohio University and increase Michigan's undefeated record to five.
NASHVILLE (AP) - Lloyd
Moseby, Toronto's all-time leader in
nine offensive categories, agreed to a
two-year contract with the Detroit
Tigers on Thursday.
"Moseby brings us several
pluses," Tigers general manager Bill
Lajoie said. "He's a proven center
fielder, he gives us more left-handed
power and he's been a base-stealing
threat throughout his career."
Gary Pettis, who played center
field for the Tigers last season,
signed as a free agent with Texas.
Moseby slumped last season,
hitting .221 with 11 homers and 43
Moseby's best year was 1987
when he hit .282 with a career-high
26 homers and 96 RBIs.
