This weekend, the women's bas-
ketball team hits the road for the
first time this Big Ten season.
Michigan (9-3, 1-1) travels to Col-
umbus today for a nationally tele-
vised game versus Ohio State (1:30
pm ESPN) and then journeys into
Bloomington to play Indiana
Sunday.
Following a convincing 8-2 pre-
conference record and a split of the
first two Big Ten games, this
weekend could prove to be one of
the Wolverines' most critical. "The
pre-season games gave us con-
fidence, and the Minnesota game
showed how good we could be. At
this point we're inches away from
being great and inches away from
being just a good team," co-captain
Carol Szczechowski said.
According to Michigan coach
Bud VanDeWege: "This is about as
hard a road trip as we have. (This
trip), especially with the national
television exposure is important. It

will make a statement about our
program and where we're at."
The Buckeyes (7-5, 1-1) enter
today's game with a 63-game Big
Ten home court win streak. Last
season's Big Ten co-champions
will definitely provide tough com-
petition for Michigan as they come
off a 72-64 victory at Wisconsin.
Sunday's opponent, Indiana,
possesses an explosive offense, av-
eraging close to 73 points a game.
Zandrea Jefferies, the Big Ten's
fourth leading scorer (18.5 ppg),
heads a list of four Hoosiers av-
eraging in double figures. Jefferies,
Lori Meinerding (16.0), Courtney
Cox (11.0), and Ann Zellers (10.0)
will combine to give the Wolverine
defense one of its stiffest tests of
the season. The Wolverines, how-
ever, remain optimistic about their
chances this weekend.
"I think if we play our game and
stick together like we have been
we'll come out with two wins,"
Michigan center Trish Andrew said.

Michigan will be looking for its
first Big Ten win of the season as
the Wolverines play host to the No.
16 Golden Gophers (10-1 overall; 1-
0 Big Ten) Saturday afternoon at
Crisler Arena.
The Wolverines, whose miserable
second half performance resulted in a
69-67 loss to Bobby Knight's In-
diana Hoosiers in their conference
opener, are looking to prove that
they can put together forty minutes
of solid basketball.
Minnesota, on the other hand, is
al-ready well on its way to proving
that it is a legitimate Big Ten
contender. In fact, after a mediocre 9-
9 conference season last year leading
to a fifth place finish, the Golden
Gophers have played impressively
this year, winning ten in a row after
an opening loss to Cincinnati.
Minnesota's most impressive
win of the season came at home
against then No. 4 ranked Illinois. In
the 91-74 victory against the

Fightin' Illini, Minnesota center
Richard Coffey pulled down a game
high 12 boards and guard Melvii
Newbern, who led the league ia
steals last season, scored a season-
high 27 points.
Newbern said that he'd be willing,
to give up that defensive honor if
Minnesota could win the Big Tcn
title, something the Golden Gopher
have not accomplished since 1982.
"I want so bad for our team to
win the Big Ten Champion-
ship,"said Newbern. "In the back of
my mind I (keep) remembering
getting beat by 20 or 25 a night a
few years ago."
After beating Illinois last Satur-
day in their conference home opener
Minnesota is undefeated at home.
Winning at home has not normally
been a problem for Clem Haskin'I
Golden Gophers. But last season's L-
8 Big Ten road record needs to be
improved upon for Minnesota to
contend for the title.
Last season, the home team was
victorious both times the teams met.

HAPPENING

Its,

MAY IS JUST AROUND

SUBWAY'S
GRAND OPENING

Here we are talking
about May and
you are still recov-
ering from Bo's an-
nouncement to
resign from coach-
ing. Steve Fisher
has just begun
playing Big Ten op-
ponents. And you
still haven't a
single clue where
you'll spend Spring
Break.
The hard reality of
life is that your
senior year will be
over before you
realize it. (Doesn't
it seem like just
yesterday that you
were wandering
around Ann Arbor
as a freshman?)

That's where we
come in. Each year
The May Depart-
ment Stores Com-
pany hires
bright, energetic,
successful seniors
from schools like
Penn, Berkeley and
Michigan. And
we'd really like to
meet you.
On Monday,.
January 15,
we'll be in the
Welker Room
of the
Michigan Union
(first floor) from
10:00 to 4:00.

We'll answer ques-
tions like: What will
I do on a typical
day? Will you train
me? Can I use my
major in this job?
And maybe most
importantly, you'll
meet a bunch of
folks, who this time
last year were wor-
ried about how they
were going to
recover from the
Rose Bowl and
where they were
going to spend
Spring Break!
