Blue hoopsters defeat Eastern'

Brown leads Michigan with

26 points in 76-62
by Theodore Cox
Daily Basketball Writer

The Michigan women's basket-
ball team started out in a wild run-
and-shoot contest last night against
Eastern Michigan at Crisler Arena.
But after several misfires and an
early 11 point deficit to the Hurons,
the Wolverines decided to slow the
game down. The Michigan offense
then turned to Tempie Brown, as the
senior gunned down the Hurons with
three triple-pointers. Eastern surren-
dered as Michigan (2-0) won 76-62.
"When I hit a three pointer that's
like the highlight in any basketball
game for me," Brown (who scored
26) said. "I would equate that to a
dunk in men's basketball. That just
makes me play ten times harder."
The game started out as a foot
race as the quick Eastern guards
pushed the bail up the court. Both
teams discovered that the fastbreaks
were causing many players to get
into early foul trouble.
After picking up two fouls,
Michigan co-captain Carol Szcze-
chowski had to be pulled only two
and a half minutes into the game.
Eastern's full court press kept the
ball on their side of the court as
Huron guards LaTonya Watson and
Reeshema Wood made several steals
to build up a 19-9 lead.
"Watson was really quick,"
Szczechowski said of Watson's 22
points in the game. "It took me five

victory
minutes to warm up to her. I just
had to learn how to adjust. I tried to
run along side of her, expecting a
teammate to pick her up. But it was
really my job, I should have gotte
back. Then going into our zone, we
shut her down."
Michigan first-year student Stacie
McCall used her quickness to slow
down Watson enough to stop the
Wolverine slide.
"I was kind of nervous at first,
but I knew what I had to do,"
McCall said. "Watson's quick, but I
have to use my quickness too. You
always have to go in with confidelc
and say you're just as good as the
next person."
Another factor in Eastern's early
lead was Michigan's awful shooting.
The whole frontline bricked several
otherwise easy shots.
"I told them (at half) that they've
got to turn and shoot the ball," said
Wolverine coach Bud VanDeWege.
"If they block it, then they block itq
but they weren't blocking anything.
I asked them, 'How many blocked
shots do they have? Yet we're
altering our shots and we're getting
too far underneath the board and
missing easy shots."'
In the second half Brown opened
the game up with her outside shot-
ing. Her 19 second half points
carried the Wolverines and freed4
other players for the victory.

BOARD
continued from page 1
The committee for the addition
and deletion of varsity sports,
,which issued the report, is currently
"looking at Michigan's tennis,
gymnastics, swimming, field hock-
ey and ice hockey programs in an
effort to assess their viability. A
report specifically dealing with
men's soccer is expected in March.
The five criteria the committee
looked at in reviewing women's
soccer were: the feasibility of the
program to compete on a national
level, the potential pool of players,
the potential for Big Ten comp-
etition, financial feasibility, and the
impact on the women's athletic
program as a whole.
Women's soccer, for the most
part, came up empty on all five.
Currently only Michigan State and
Wisconsin offer soccer in the Big
Ten, and no other schools are

considering adding the sport. Six
conference teams are required for a
sport to be certified at a conference
level.
"Who would they play?" Ocker
asked. "You'd have to go to
Southern Methodist to play a
Division I school. Fiscally that
makes no sense."
The committee was concerned
about the potential pool of players,
noting that only 21 women went
out for the women's soccer club and
40 showed up to play indoor soccer
at an intramural level.
Roeder said "adding an additional
varsity women's sport would risk
diluting the intended improvements
in women's athletics."
The board also approved
recommending that the University's
Board of Regents name the indoor
football practice facility after former
Michigan football legend Bennie
Oosterbaan.

Women end homestand with Akron

by John Niyo
Daily Basketball Writer
The Michigan women's basket-
ball team will be playing its third
game in only six days when they
take the court Sunday against
Akron.
With victories over Youngstown
State (87-55) and Eastern Michigan
(76-62) Tuesday and Thursday, the
team will be coming into this
weekend's game on a high note.
Akron head coach Lisa Fitch,
daughter of New Jersey Nets coach
Bill Fitch, and her Lady Zips
haven't fared quite as well early on
this season. They will bring an 0-2
record with them into Ann Arbor.
Bowling Green did away with
Akron, 95-70, and Kent State
defeated them, 86-81. Last year
Akron finished the season just

below .500 at 14-15.
Three starters are returning for
the Lady Zips from that 1988-89
squad. Those three have been joined
by two rookies in the starting
lineup this year.
Senior guard Elizabeth Green,
junior forward Stacey Burner, and
6-foot-2 senior center Kerry Moss-
burg are the familiar faces in
Fitch's lineup. The two new faces
are forward Leigh Burdette and guard
Dayna Felice.
"We run an offense with three
perimeter players and two in the
post," Daily said. "Our strength is
probably our post play, so we try
to work it inside. Lisa's philosophy
is that she wants to get the ball out
and run. We like to push it up the
floor as much as we can. Defen-

sively, we want to extend the floor.
We're going to play full court man
if we can. If not, we're going to
pick them up at half court and play
a pressure man-to-man defense."
A tenacious defense has also
been the key for Coach Bud
VanDeWege and the Wolverines. In
their regular season debut, Mich-
igan harassed Youngstown State
into making 29 turnovers. The
defense sparked the offense and the
end result was an 87-55 rout.
However, the offense certainly
hasn't been absent. Last night
senior Tempie Brown burned up the
nets for 26 points, including three
three-pointers. Another key for
Michigan has been the early season
schedule. The hectic week was
helped by the fact that all three

games are in the friendly confines
of Crisler.
"Playing at home is always
something that we enjoy. You
don't have that travel wear and
tear," VanDeWege said. "But, one
added pleasure for us this year is
that the Michigan Hockey Band has
come over to play in Crisler and
that's just something that we're so
thrilled about you can't ev61
imagine. We feel great about tile
atmosphere at home."
