Indiana and Ohio State come to
Crisler Arena this weekend for two
pivotal matchups with the Mich-
igan women's basketball team.
The last time Michigan faced
these two teams, the Wolverines
came up short in both games, los-
ing 60-58 to Indiana (3-6 Big Ten)
and 84-67 to the Buckeyes (6-3).
Michigan's victory in Illinios
last weekend placed the team in a
tie with Michigan State for fifth
place in the Big Ten at 4-5.
"We realize that we have a very
realistic opportunity to finish (in
the top half of the Big Ten),"
Michigan coach Bud VanDeWege
said. "I think that means something
to the kids and we're working hard
for it. We're very pleased.
On Friday, Michigan takes on
the Hoosiers in a rematch long
anticipated.
"We really feel like we gave one
away down there (in Bloom-
ington)," VanDeWege said, "and
we're really, really anxious for the
game, especially after looking at
the game film yesterday."
In Bloomington, Michigan's
Tempie Brown scored 23 points,
but Zandrea Jefferies countered with
16 points and nine rebounds for the

Hoosiers to lead them to the two-
point victory. Jefferies is currently
fifth in the Big Ten in scoring and
third in rebounding.
Ohio State, however, was a diff-
erent story. First-year guard Averill
Roberts dumped in a career-high 27
points, overpowering Michigan and
Tanya Powell's 16 point, 10 re-
bound performance.
Still, VanDeWege feels that the
Wolverine defense is up for the
challenge.
"Our defense as a team has sig-
nificantly improved since that
weekend," VanDeWege said.
"We've been able to come off the
bench with people that do the job
defensively."
Again, the Wolverine lineup
will shift for this weekend's games,
as four seniors will be on the court
for the opening tap. In addition to
Powell, Val Hall, Joan Reiger, and
junior Carol Szczechowski, Leslie
Spicer will get the nod from Van-
DeWege.
VanDeWege had nothing but
praise for his seniors' play of late:
"Leslie Spicer is playing the best
basketball of her careerandtshewill
start this weekend as a result. Tanya
Powell came through with a great
weekend also."

As strange as it may seem, the
powerhouse Michigan men's swim
team (4-0 Big Ten, 8-2 overall) will
compete tomorrow in their first
grudge match of the season.
Indiana University will arrive at
Canham Natatorium with memories
of last year's 63-50 victory over the
reigning Big Ten Champions still.
intact.
Sophomore Eric Wunderlich
would like to see the results of this
year's dual meet turn out differently.
He wants to win. "There is a little
tiny revenge factor because they beat
us last year," said Wunderlich.
Still, he doesn't see a threat from
the Hoosiers: "It's really not that
important."
True to the character of the
Michigan swim team, the Wolver-
ines view Indiana as yet another

speed bump on the road to the
NCAA Championships in Indian-
apolis.
Recently, the team has slowly
gotten away from their regular,
physically draining practices. The
swimmers now rest more often to
save their strength for meets in
which they may quailfy for the
tournament.
"The intensity of workouts for
the team is getting less and less,"
said Wunderlich, though the teams
strongest swimmers, including Wun-
derlich, follow a somewhat different
regiment.
Brent Lang, Mike Barrowman,
Wunderlich, and Eric Namesnik have
yet to move to the lighter practice
schedule. All four have already
turned in qualifying times and will
not begin resting until the Big Ten
Championships.

Daily Hockey Writer
The arrival of the Alaska-
Anchorage hockey team into Ann
Arbor this weekend would appear to
be a break for the Wolverines from
the CCHA hockey schedule. But
Michigan coach Red Berenson
knows that the Seawolves are
carrying more into this weekend's
series than frequent flier miles.
"They are a team that can play
with any Division I team. They're a
competitive club that can come in
and beat you," he said.
Just last week, the 14th-ranked
Seawolves (19-6-1) came into Min-
nesota and split a weekend series
with the nation's second- ranked
Golden Gophers. In January, Alaska-
Anchorage swept No.6 Maine at
home, 4-3 and 6-5.
A win or two this weekend
against the Wolverines (18-10-4
overall, 14-10-4 CCHA) would al-
most certainly guarantee the Sea-

wolves first place among the nar
tion's seven independents and a berth.
in the NCAA playoffs.
"We like to play against other
teams (outside the CCHA) to mea
sure ourselves," Berenson said,.
"When the puck drops, it's still Di
vision I hockey. We still have to
worry about NCAA ratings and
momentum. They are important
games."
Berenson doesn't plan to
experiment with different lineupsl0
over the weekend and will start goal.

started Michigan's last 12 games;
Friday night.
"I think Warren is getting back td
his gane and we want to work oft
keeping him sharp," Berenson said..
Alaska-Anchorage's top three
scorers all play on their first line:
Center Dean Larsen (15. goals, 400
assists, 55 points) leads the team i4

"Besides the Big Ten meet, this
is our only scoring meet," assistant
coach Sue Foster said. "We're trying '

Foster looks for big performance(

This weekend is crucial for the
men's and women's indoor track
teams, both of which will be
competing in their first scoring
meets.
The men's team competes Friday
and Saturday in the Central Colle-
giate Championships at the Univer-
sity of Wisconsin. Coach Jack Har-
vey expects big things from his

squad.
"I would be very disappointed if
we don't finish in the top five (of a
field of 20)," Harvey said. "But for
us to be there,(high jumper) Brad
Holwerda and (pole vaulter) Brad
Darr are going to have to do well."
The field features six Big Ten
teams, teams from the Mid-Amer-
ican Conference, and a few indepen-
dents.
The women's team is at home
