in opening win
A balanced scoring attack and
strong defense led the Michigan
women's basketball team to an 87-
55 victory over Youngstown State
last night at Crisler Arena.
Tanya Powell, Carol Szcz-
echowski and Tempie Brown chipped
in 12 points apiece, giving the
Wolverines a 1-0 record.
From the opening tip to the final
buzzer, both teams played in
aggressive, full-court press defenses,
forcing numerous turnovers. While
Michigan forced Youngstown State
(1-3) into 18 first half mistakes and
29 on the game, they in turn
Michigan coach Bud VanDe-
Wege, while pleased with the defen-
sive performance, was unimpressed
with his team's ball handling.
"To be honest, I though it was
more (than 23 turnovers),"
VanDeWege said. "The number one
thing coming out of this game that
we learned is that we have got to do
a better job against the pressure. I
think we need to attack it better. We
were a little tentative, but a lot of
that is the first game feeling."
According to Youngstown coach
Ed DiGregorio, not many teams in
the past have shut down his point
guard, sophomore Dianne Rappach,
as handily as Michigan.
"They worked hard on defense
tonight," DiGregorio said. "If they
work that hard on defense, they're
going to give a lot of people
problems in the Big Ten. As a
freshman last year, nobody handled
(Rappach). Michigan did a number
on her tonight. They had' her
After trading baskets for the first
four minutes of the game, Michigan
went on a 10-2 run to open up an
18-10 lead. In the stretch, all of the
five Wolverines on the floor scored.
"When we play a lot of people,
you hope for good balance and you
hope that people come in and get
some buckets," VanDeWege said.
"I like to see that. It's hard for
teams to prepare for one or two
individuals when you've got a lot of
weapons you can throw at them."
Michigan outscored Youngstown
over the final ten minutes of the first
half, 24-9, giving the Wolverines a
42-24 halftime edge. For 4:27 of the
run, Michigan held Youngstown
scoreless, in addition to forcing
Rappach into her fourth foul of the
game with 2:06 remaining.
The Wolverines put the game out
of reach midway through the second
half with an 18-0 run that gave them
a 74-39 lead. From there,
VanDeWege was able to substitute
freely, using all 15 suited players,
each of whom scored in the contest.
In addition to leading the
Wolverines in scoring, co-captain
Powell tallied game-highs of 10
rebounds, five steals, and four
assists. Six of her rebounds were
from the offensive glass.
Unfurling of banner
to hi~ghli~ght opener'
by Lory Knapp

It will be amidst all the memories and excitement of last season's
National Championship that the Wolverines open their home basketball
season against Grambling State tonight at 7:30 p.m.
The game will be preceded by a ceremony at which the players and
coaches will receive their championship rings and will culminate with the
presenting of the NCAA Championship banner.
Along with anticipating the ceremony, the Wolverines are also
looking to improve upon their last two performances. Although they
emerged from the trip out East with a split, coach Steve Fisher is not
satisfied with the team's play.
"I am pleased with (the team's) attitude and effort, (but) nobody played
the way they need to play," said Fisher. "We have got to do a better job at
smoothing out the offense. We are laboring in our transition game and we
are not running the floor well."
Grambling State (1-1), and first-year head coach, Aaron James, comes
to Ann Arbor following a 73-69 home victory over Northwestern
Louisiana. Having lost to Michigan last year, 102-62, the Tigers should
provide the Wolverines with a good opportunity to improve both their
record and their depth.
"They (Grambling State) have decent players, (but) they don't have a
star," said Fisher. "It's a game we should win and it will probably provide
an opportunity for more kids to play. "But, it depends on the flow of the
One of those kids that is likely to see some playing time if the flow of
the game allows for it will be rookie guard Tony Tolbert. Tolbert, who
has yet to play in a regular season game, is expected to add depth at the
guard position, along with fellow newcomer Michael Talley.
Poor shot selection is another concern of Fisher's. Against Arizona,
the Wolverines made 42.3 percent of their attempted field goals while the
Wildcats shot 57.4 percent.
At Boston University, Michigan was fortunate enough to miss fewer
shots than did the Terriers as Boston shot a mere 34.7 percent from the
Center Val Hall gathers the ball in Michigan's season opener against

Henderson decides to stay with A's
OAKLAND (AP) - Rickey
Henderson got a $12 million reward
Tuesday for helping the Oakland
Athletics win the World Series,
signing the first four-year baseball
contract since 1985.
The A's also included a no-trade
clause in the contract, guaranteeing
Henderson's presence through 1993.

four-year deal since Ken Oberkefell
with Atlanta in 1985, gets a $1
million signing bonus, $2 million
in 1990 and $3 million in 1991 and
1992. It makes the outfielder the
second $3 million-a-year player.
Minnesota center fielder Kirby
Puckett agreed to a $9 million,
three-year contract last Wednesday.
"My heart was set on playing in
Oakland," said Henderson, an
Oakland native. "I love Oakland.
Deep down inside I felt I probably
would. be playing here no matter
what the terms."
A's general manager Sandy
Alderson knew he needed to act
quickly to avoid giving Yankees
owner George Steinbrenner the
chance to lure Henderson back to
New York with a better offer. The
Yankees traded him to Oakland on
"When Rickey returned to the A's
last June he had an immediate and
dramatic impact on the team,"
Alderson said, appearing with
Henderson at a news conference at
the Oakland Coliseum. "We were all
thrilled when Rickey rejoined the
A's.. We're equally thrilled that he's

The A's left fielder, who will be
31 on Christmas Day, joined
Oakland for the second time in the
trade sending him to the Yankees for

Considered the best leadoff hitter
ever, he game the A's more speed
and power in the absence of the
injured Jose Canseco and provided
them with the most dangerous line-
up in baseball.
Henderson ranks fourth on the
all-time stolen base list and is just
67 steals short of tying Lou Brock
(938) for the record. Brock set the
record in 18-plus seasons, Henderson
has played 10.
