Women's cagers face
Big Ten's b
by John Niyo
Daily Basketball Writer
The Wolverines will hope to end
a three game losing streak this
weekend as they face two teams from
opposite ends of the Big Ten
women's basketball standings. First-
place Northwestern (11-1 overall, 3-
o Big Ten) and last-place Wisconsin
(5-8, 0-3) will visit Crisler Arena
tonight and Sunday.
Michigan is coming off a
disappointing road trip to Ohio State
and Indiana. Especially painful for
the Wolverines was the 60-58 loss
to Indiana in which they turned the
ball over on their last two
possessions and consequently handed
over the game.
"They came back and really
worked hard this week," head coach
Bud VanDeWege said. "I think they
realize how very close they are and
they want to get over that hump.
They were very spirited in practice
and I was pleased with that."
Most certainly they will have to
play as spirited as they practice
against the Wildcats tonight.
After steamrolling over its first
three conference foes, Northwestern,
ranked 23rd in the latest AP poll, is
heading to Ann Arbor for its first
conference road contest. Among the
Wildcat home victories was a win
over Ohio State and a 22-point
thrashing of Indiana.
"They're talented, they're hot, and
they're in just such a groove that
you've just got to be ready,"
VanDeWege said. "Northwestern has
great balance, good size, good speed
and great outside shooting (the
Wildcats lead the nation in field goal
percentage). They're a legitimate Big
Ten title contender this year."
VanDeWege and the Michigan
team will face a couple of tough
players named Michelle this
weekend. Northwestern's 6-1 forward
Michele Savage and Wisconsin's 6-1
forward Michelle Kozelka both lead
their teams in scoring and
rebounding. The Wildcats also boast
Nancy Kennelly, currently fifth in
the nation in assists.
"They've got Kozelka inside
who's been on a rampage, averaging
18 points and nine rebounds a
game," VanDeWege said.
"They added a lot of speed to their
lineup this year, so they're a lot
quicker team and they should be able
to pose some defensive problems."

With two starters nursing
injuries, a rookie in the lineup, and a
slumping star, one might feel sorry
for wrestling coach Dale Bahr.
Nonetheless, Bahr remains
confident entering the weekend.
The Wolverines open their Big
Ten season against Illinois Saturday
and Purdue Sunday, each at the
"I think we're more ready this
weekend than. we were last weekend,"
Bahr said, referring Salem Yaffai's
(126 lbs.) and Sam Amine's (158)
returns to the starting lineup.
Yaffai severed his tear duct last
week, and will have to wear
protective goggles this weekend.
Amine missed his last two matches,
after his neck tightened up prior to
weighing in for the Oklahoma State
"Salem returned to practice, and
Men's track set for opener
he wrestled like he was rusty," Bahr
said. "I think Sammy's injury scared
him more than anything else."
James Rawls became the
Wolverine starter at 142 when James
Feldkamp surrendered his spot
because of weight problems. The
rookie Rawls was planning to be
redshirted this year.
"He's a typical freshman," Bahr
said. "He hadn't been doing much in
terms of conditioning. He's been
getting in better shape this week."
All-American senior Larry
Gotcher will have something to
prove this weekend at his 150 slot
after dropping three of his last four
matches. The fiercely competitive
Gotcher has turned his intensity up a
notch to prepare for the Big Ten

Harvey is looking for particularly
strong showings from pole vaulter
Brad Darr, high jumper Brad

that Eastern will be tough in the

The men's gymnastics squad
heads to Chicago this weekend for
the Windy City Invitational, a 12

competing Big Ten members.
Michigancoach Bob Darden was
unsure about where his team might
finish. "You don't know until you
see the other teams," he said. Half of
the participating teams have already
posted scores in the 260's, out of a
