Brown leads team

helped me when they realized I was a female drummer,"
Brown said. "It was like a big thing and I liked the,
attention that I got."
When she wasn't playing in the jazz or all-city band,
Brown was on the court playing basketball in any pick-
up game she could find. At the time, Brown didn't
worry about technique; she just played. Besides, in high
school, all she needed to know was how to put the ball
in the bucket.
"I played at the top of the free throw line with my
back to the basket, and they would just throw it to me
and I would just shoot," Brown said. The system was
simple enough for her to win Colorado's Miss
Basketball at Michigan wasn't so simple.
"It was a whole new level of play that I didn't even'
know existed," Brown said. "What you did in high
school, becomes what everybody does in college. You
just have to learn how to get the edge over everybody -
else. They challenge you physically more than I ever
thought I could go. I feel like I'm on the track team.
It's amazing how much we run."
Her sophomore season, Brown found the edge she JOSE JUAREZ/Daily

"She's funny, just a joke."
Although Brown's leadership qualities haIe
improved, her inconsistency hasn't. With only seven
games left, chances are Brown will be unable to cure her
consistency problems. But that's part of the excitemeilt.
One never knows when she is going to score 26 points
with three three-pointers, as she did against Eastern
Michigan. And if she doesn't?
There's always the drums.

This time, turnovers
good to Wolverines
bj Phil Green
Daily Basketball Writer,
The Wolverines again proved the.
deadliness of turnovers in Friday's,
72-59, victory over Indiana. Last
month in Bloomington, Michigan
committed 21 turnovers while
causing only 12 in a 61-59 Hoosier
victory. This weekend, the Wolver-
ines tripped the Hoosiers up with 20
turnovers, committing only 14 of
DECK THE HALLS: Val Halll

yesterday, as she continued her recent
tear that began three weeks ago. Ten
of her boards Friday came off the
offensive glass, contributing greatly
to the Wolverines' rebounding do-;
minance. Michigan came away withI
a 46-38 edge overall, including 26-1

IT'S ABOUT TIME: With
their 58-55 triumph over the Buck-
eyes yesterday, the Wolverines gave
coach Bud VanDeWege his first win
over Ohio State and the team's first
since 1981. The victory raised Mich-
igan's record against OSU to 2-19.
AND THE WINNER IS...: At
halftime of Sunday's game, 24 of
Michigan's women student-athletes
were recognized for outstanding

ican swimmers Ann Colloton and

forward Joan Rieger fouled out,
allowing Buckeye forward Nicole
Sanchez to tie the game, 53-53, with
two free throws. Following a
turnover, Michigan center Val Hall
joined Rieger on the bench, fouling
Sanchez with 1:34 left.
Sanchez, however, missed the
front end of the one-and-one.
"I felt like that was finally the
little bit of luck we needed," VanDe-
Wege said. "We finally got a break."
Co-captain Tanya Powell, whose
free throw at 1:17 gave Michigan a
54-53 lead, added 13 points in the
Friday night the Wolverines
couldn't have followed VanDe-
Wege's playbook more precisely as
they beat up on Indiana (9-11, 3-7).
"The main thing was we were
executing our game plan," Hall said.
Hall destroyed the Hoosier defense
for a career-high 20 points and a
game-high 14 rebounds.
Michigan exploited its size
advantage over Indiana early by
running plays right at the basket for
a 36-25 halftime lead.
Indiana was helpless on the
boards in the first half as the Wol-
verines outrebounded the Hoosiers,
"We're just not doing a good job
of inside board play," Indiana coach
Jim Izard said. "At some particular
time these kids are going to rise to
the occasion and box somebody
To open the second half, Indiana
packed their defense inside, but
forward Leslie Spicer nailed shot
after shot from the corner to put the
Wolverines up by 20 with 10:48 left
in the game.
Another big factor in the victory
was Trish Andrew's three blocked
shots for Michigan.
