The question: Will the Michigan
Volleyball team be able to keep its
three game winning streak going?
The answer: "It would be great
for us to keep moving in the same
direction," Michigan coach Peggy
Bradley-Doppes said. "We showed
maturity this weekend. We usually
come out and take the lead then end
up losing it. But this weekend we
were able to play strong through
Sunday. It would be really great to
beat a team like Western. It would
be really fun for me, I used to coach
against (Western coach) Rob (Buck)
in the MAC."
The Wolverines (4-16 overall; 0-
8 in the Big Ten), take on Western
Michigan (4-14; 3-3 in the MAC)
tonight at 7:30 in Varsity Arena.
A problem the volleyball team
worries about is time.
"We haven't done much to
prepare for Western," Michigan
assistant coach Jennifer Dhaenens
said. "We try to keep them from
looking ahead, so we really only
have Monday to practice and get

Wolverines will work on serving and
returning serves, as well as defense.
"Western has some great athletes.
We need to pass well to win,"
The Broncos, usually at the top
of the conference, are not having
their typical year.
"There is really no significance to
this match," Buck said. "Both
programs are struggling to keep their
heads above water. For us, this is
definitely a season of reorganization.
We need to reinstitute a foundation
for our program."
However, Dhaenens disagrees.
"We are really excited. We had a
great weekend and we are excited to
play Western. Another win would
give us a lot of momentum to take
into the second half of the Big Ten

Moeller acknowledged injuries
have caused problems, but he did not
want to point the finger solely at his
depleted squads for the team's
lackluster play of recent.
"We're banged up in a few
spots," he said. "We may get a
couple of of players back, but we've
got to go with the guys we've got."
The frustrated coach also
suggested that those on the field
must take charge and bring back the
'd' in defense.
But Moeller does not see much
concern for preparing his team for
the remaining five games. He also
does not feel the pressure that might
be placed on him succeeding
Schembechler as coach.
"I know how to coach football,"
he said. "I'm not in any panic. I feel
