The Michigan women's bas-
ketball team cruised to a 109-55
victory over the Mexican National
Team yesterday in Crisler Arena.
Forward Leslie Spicer led six
Wolverines in double figures with
14 points. All 16 suited players
saw action, with 15 of them
"It was nice to see everybody get
a chance to play in a game sit-
uation," coach Bud VanDeWege
said. "But I think you've got to
caution the fact that our opponent
today was a long way away from

facing in the pre-conference

difficulty with their inside game, as
Michigan held a 57-28 rebounding
edge. First-year center Michelle
Hall grabbed a game-high 12
rebounds, six off the offensive
"We had a very clear height
advantage," VanDeWege said.
"Trish and Michelle were the two
that exploited it most. Michelle got
a lot of offensive rebounds and put
them back in and Trish took
advantage of opportunities when
she got them inside."
Andrew led the charge in the
first half, scoring on all five of her
attempts, as Michigan went to the
locker room ahead, 58-33.
After showcasing their half-court
offense in the first half, Michigan
came out storming in the second,
running the floor, and jumping out
on a 26-5 run.
The defense also rose to the
occasion, forcing 23 turnovers on
"Before we came out this
season, we said that no one would
come into this place outhustling
us," Durand said. "We were going
to be the scrappiest and hardest
playing team out there."
"Last year, we'd go up on a
team by 10, but we'd never put
them away," co-captain Carol
Szczechowski said. "This is like the
first game we ever had such a big
win. As a whole, everyone got in
and I thought everyone did a good
job which just proves our depth."

'Tis the season to be jolly. As Thanksgiving approaches, we know
Christmas is soon to follow. Santa is seen here flashing the victory
sign to East Berlin. The government has finally been good this year and
thus as a special treat they will receive Griddes this holiday season.
The elves have helped Santa with this week's picks which he
carefully holds in his left hand. Santa has been hurt in past weeks by
picking Slippery Rock. This week he could have a few surprise picks in
store; good ol' Saint Nick might just go against The Rock this week.
You too can join the festive mood by turning in your picks at the
Student Publications Building by 5 p.m. this Friday. Santa promises to
stuff the winner's Christmas stocking with a gift certificate for lunch or
dinner for two at O'Sullivans on South University.

This weekend the Michigan women's swimming
team outclassed its competition.
Friday night the Wolverines defeated Eastern Mich-
igan, 96-16, and Illinois, 90-22. Saturday morning the
team beat Oakland.
"We had a pretty good meet," 1,000-meter freestyle
winner Stefanie Liebner said about Friday's meet. "I
think everyone swam faster than even (coach) Jim
(Richardson) expected us to."
Ann Colloton, the team captain, and Kathy Deibler
were also Friday night standouts.
Colloton officially qualified for the NCAA
Championships with a time of 2:19.01 in the 200
breaststroke. "I was really tired and wasn't sure how I'd
do, but I was pleased with the way I swam," she said.
Deibler swam times of 10:20.25 in the 1,000
freestyle, 52.32 in the 100 freestyle, and 52.19 in the
400 freestyle relay.
"You rarely swim anyone more than two events in
a row. However, she (Deibler) likes to do this once a
year," Richardson said. Deibler improved significantly
over her times from last year.
Friday night's meet ended around 10:30 p.m. Eight
hours later the Wolverines began their meet against
"Understandably, the people who swam well Friday
night were tired Saturday morning," Richardson said.
"But that type of situation will pay dividends later in
the season. It is also good preparation for our trip to
California where they (the team) will swim six
sessions in three days."
With the Grand Prix Invitational in Los Angeles
next on the agenda, the Wolverines look forward to
swimming against the top teams in the country, in-
cluding No. 1 Stanford.
The team hopes competing with the best will make
them swim in top form. "If you have your head
screwed on straight there is no disgrace in defeat, the
disgrace is in not trying," Richardson said.
Fortunately, the Wolverines have no problem with
their attitude. "Practices are tough, but everyone in
workout supports one another, which makes it easier,"
first-year swimmer Mindy Ghers said.
"It will be tough up until our last mandatory
workout on Wednesday morning," Liebner added. "But
we don't want to lose what we've gained over the last
Coach Richardson says the team will use the
Thanksgiving break as a chance to recover for their
upcoming meet. "They're going to end up getting a
week and a half of rest," Richardson said.

Sparks of a Big Ten feud ignited at
Canham Natatorium Friday.
Before the dual meet between Michigan
and Illinois commenced, chants of, "Rose
Bowl, Rose Bowl," were issued from the
Michigan bench. The Illini responded with a
chant of their own, "We'll see, we'll see."
As soon as the swimmers pierced the
water, the Illinois' spark went out.
Michigan, once again, displayed their
dominance winning all but one of seventeen
events by a total score of 84-29.
Assistant Coach Mark Noetzel was most
pleased with his team's performance in the
400-yard Medley Relay. "Our time of 3:22
was our best time this year by about seven
seconds, and it puts us in contention going
into the Texas meet."
The rookie combination of Steve
Duttenhoffer, and Brian Gunn were most
impressive to Noetzel. "Gunn's time in the
500 freestyle went a long way."
Gunn appeared modest about the victory.
"It was a good swim for being the end of a
hard training week. We'd already had ten
practices in the past week. So coming at the
end of the week, I was happy with it," Gunn
However, Gunn's time is not enough to
qualify him for the NCAA championships.
Gunn looks to his stronger event, the 200
butterfly, to send him to the NCAA
championships. "I have a better chance at
making the 200 fly actually. Whether I have
to shave or not is yet to be seen."
Preferably Gunn would like to keep his
body hair as long as possible.
Although no Wolverine swam a
qualifying time Friday, Noetzel is
