OUIMET STANDS OUT IN FIRST YEAR
Skating at a different
by Andrew Gottesman
Daily Hockey Writer
Mark Ouimet doesn't just stand
out in crowds; he skates out of them
- and fast.
His speed and scoring ability
have helped him, a first-year center
on Michigan's ice hockey team, rise
near the top of the Wolverine scor-
"He's already shown that he'll be-
come a great college player," Mich-
igan coach Red Berenson said.
"Everything pretty well centers
around my skating," Ouimet said.
"It's simple - If I'm not skating
well, I play pretty badly. When I
first came here, I wasn't sure if I
could keep up. As things went on, I
found that I could."
Not only has Ouimet kept up,
but he also managed to pace the
team with a 16-game point streak
that ended this past weekend. His
speed and aggressiveness have also
helped him become a fixture on
In all, the Poplar Hill, Ontario
native has amassed 33 points,
tallying 12 goals and 21 assists in
30 games this season. "I've done a
lot more than I expected my first
year," he said.
Ironically, Ouimet, who is in the
School of Physical Education but is
unsure of any future plans, didn't
even start out as an offensive player.
His father, Ted Ouimet, was a goal-
tender and teammate of Berenson
with St. Louis from 1968-70. "My
dad always took us (Mark and older
brother Terry, a forward at Miami,
Ohio) to the rinks," Ouimet said. "If
you're around the rinks enough when
you're young, it'll start to grow on
But while he still loves goal-
tending, Ouimet was converted early
to a forward. "When I was 10, we
needed some skaters on the team," he
said. "My skating ability was too
good to waste in goal."
After playing Junior B hockey in
Canada with the Strathroy Blades for
three years until he was 16, Ouimet
began thinking about college. The
Western Junior B Most Valuable
Player in 1988-89 visited several
other universities, including almost
all of the other CCHA schools, but
Ouimet's mind was made up after
his first trip to Ann Arbor.
"Every chance my father got to
talk to me about school, he kept on
driving at Michigan," Ouimet said.
"He said (Berenson, an NHL center)
could definitely help me as a center."
Berenson was just as happy with
Ouimet as Ouimet was with Mich-
"He's one of those players that
sticks out of crowd with his speed,"
Berenson said. "He's a player that is
always skating and always working.
And he's very coachable."
Ouimet feels he made the right
choice. "It still amazes me," Ouimet
said. "I still have to glance down a't
my sweater to make sure it's Mich-
igan. My biggest thrill would ha'e'
to be right before our first horie:
game. (Senior center) Rob Broi\n:
and I were standing on the stars;:

Brown feels Ouimet has returned
the favor with his performance enr
"Mark hadn't played in the first
few games with us and it was just so
great to see his excitement," Brown
said. "He adds some energy and ex-
And maybe that's what keeps
him going so fast.

LAWRENCE, Kansas (AP) -
Anthony Peeler scored 22 points,
including the basket that gave Mis-
*sduri the lead for good, and the
second-ranked Tigers beat No. 1
Kansas for the second time this
season, 77-71, last night.
The Tigers (23-2, 9-1) beat the
JAyhawks (24-2, 7-2) 95-87 on
J4nuary 20th and their second win
over Kansas keeps them atop the Big
Eight standings as well.
This was the first matchup of
Nos. 1-2 since top-ranked North
Carolina beat Georgia Tech 78-77 on
February 4, 1986, and that wad also
a road victory. Kansas coach Roy
Williams was a member of Dean
Smith's staff in the game.
Kansas had rallied from a 63-53
deficit to tie the score at 64-64 with
5:33 left to play. The Jayhawks used
their bench and went inside to score,
usually the Tigers' strongpoint.
Peeler, who leads the Tigers at
18.7 points per game, broke the tie
for good when he scored on an
offensive rebound, the Tigers' third
in the sequence, with 4:58 left. The
play followed a timeout called by
Missouri coach Norm Stewart.
Doug Smith, the Tigers' second-
leading scorer at 18.6, then made
two free throws, just his second and
third points of the half, and Missouri
on a 9-2 run which put the game
Kansas did get within 73-71 on a
three-pointer by Kevin Pritchard
with 1:09 to play, but first-year
player Travis Ford then made two
free throws and Peeler added two
more for the final margin.
Nathan Buntin added 16 points
for Missouri, while John McIntyre
had 15 and Smith 12.
Mark Randall led Kansas with 15
points, one more than reserve for-
ward Mike Maddox, who scored 14
points and had an assist in the
Jayhawks' 11-1 run which brought
about the 64-64 tie.
