Beat rolls on without Rumea

by Steven Cohen
Daily Basketball Writer
Chicago State is not Duke.
Thus, the sixth-ranked Wolver-
ines (6-1) did not afford the Cougars
the same attention as they did to the
Blue Devils. It was only after the
thrilling win over Duke on Saturday
that Michigan gave the 1-6 team any
The main task at hand for
Michigan was not playing down to
the level of Chicago State.
Despite playing without Rumeal
Robinson, whose turf-toe injury
suffered in the first half against Duke
prevented him from playing, Mich-
igan continued to exhibit the solid
play it has shown since the Iowa
State victory with an 84-57 win.
With victory an almost foregone
conclusion, Michigan coach Steve
Fisher set three goals for his squad:
to limit the Cougars to five offen-
sive rebounds, to hold them under 55
points, and to keep their shooting
percentage under 40 percent.
The squad managed to accomplish
only one of those objectives as the
Cougars shot 30.9 percent from the
field (21-68). In addition, the

overmatched Cougars pulled down
16 offensive rebounds, six in the
first half.
As in the game against Central
Michigan, the fans were waiting for
Michigan to blow the game open.
The magic number last night was
9:47. With the score 22-19 in the
Wolverines favor, Michigan went on
a 25-5 run to make the score 47-24
at halftime.
Junior guard Demetrius Calip,
starting for the first time in his
career, and Sean Higgins led
Michigan with 11 points in the first
half. Loy Vaught and Terry Mills
each scored eight in the opening
half, with Mills amassing eight of
his game-high 12 rebounds.
Fisher, who was somewhat disap-
pointed with the second team, which
was outscored 28-11 in the final
9:55, was pleased with the play of
the first unit, particularly Higgins.
"Higgins finds ways to get the
basketball. Even though he took 11
shots in the first half, Sean Higgins
had eight passes to the post. That
made me feel good, we moved the
ball well, got good easy shots and
scored on a good number of them."

Higgins, who finished with 16
points, led four Wolverines in
double figures. Vaught kicked in 13
points to go with his nine rebounds.
Mills added 13 and Calip finished
with 11.
While Fisher was disappointed
with the play of his second team,
Chicago State coach Tommy Suits
was left flabbergasted with the play
of some of his starters.
"We've got some kids who can
play but we just have some kids
who will not do what I wanted do so

I just wouldn't play them." Suitts
said. "I have a ten year old. If I take
his Nintendo away, he will do
anything I ask him for two days,
These guys the only thing I have to
take from them is playing time."
Michigan first-year guards Mich-
ael Talley and Tony Tolbert played
24 and 12 minutes, respectively in
Robinson's absence.
Fisher expects Robinson to b6
ready in time for game at Marquette
on December 16.

Blue to play 'Bud' Bowl


by John Niyo
Daily Basketball Writer
The holiday break signifies a
time of relaxation and relief from
pressure for most. But for
women's basketball coach Bud
VanDeWege and his players, who
have played five games in only
eleven days, the break means more
games and hopefully more wins.
Michigan, off to a quick 5-0
start, has been riding a wave of
success to this point in the season
and they will face five more non-
.conference opponents before facing
their Big Ten foes.
The upcoming games should
prove to be more of a test for the
Wolverines, however. On Thurs-
day, Wisconsin-Green Bay will
invade Crisler arena with hopes of
upset on their mind. They certain-
ly are capable, as they proved in a

surprising victory over Wisconsin.
Next up will be Toledo, a team
that finished last season with a 25-
8 record. They return seven
letterwinners from that group.
The calendar year will end for
Michigan in Miami, Florida,
where they will compete in the
Orange Bowl Classic. Washing-
ton, South Alabama, Pittsburgh,
Cleveland State, Florida Inter-
national, and Miami also grace the
field. Opening round matchups are
not yet known.
From Miami the team will
move back home to start confer-
ence play. Minnesota and Iowa
will be the first tests on January 5
and 7, respectively. Iowa is
considered one of the nations'
finest teams and are currently
ranked near the top ten in the
national polls.
