Sloppy game still
counts as Victory
For the third time in as many games, Michigan
played one good and one bad half of basketball, and
suffered its closest call last night in a 78-76 victory
over Eastern Michigan. The key word is victory.
Fact is, the Wolverines haven't won cleanly. They
haven't dominated for 40 minutes. And they probably
won't for a while.
The glass was half full for optimistic coach Steve
Fisher last night, as he credited the Hurons instead of
blaming his team for blowing a 19 point lead in the
second half. Fisher could have used that half-full glass
to wash down some Rolaids after the game.
When Lorenzo Neeley's 25-footer caromed off the
rim, a collective sigh pervaded Crisler Arena. But
what can be made of this erratic, albeit successful
Fisher was happy with it. He said his team played
hard, their team played hard, and his team won. But
anyone at the game saw a hell of a lot in between.
They saw Tony Tolbert, a guard, handle the ball
like a center. Tolbert had seven turnovers and five
points. They saw Chris Seter foul a Huron defender
away from the ball with 2:15 remaining, when
Michigan was attempting to kill the clock. They saw
Rob Pelinka, who played well for the first 39.5 min-
utes, commit three fouls in the final 19.3 seconds of
the game. All that saved Pelinka from goat status was
the front rim that rejected Roger Lewis' free throws.
But they also saw Michael Talley notch 14 points
and five assists, icing the game with five of six free
throws down the stretch. They also saw guard Kirk
Taylor play like a small forward, playing tight de-
fense and snaring six rebounds. And they saw Eric
Riley and Sam Mitchell provide low post offense in
the first half.
A popular misconception about this game is that
Eastern Michigan was merely a compass opponent,
simply providing the Wolverines with another presea-
son tune-up. Neeley and center Marcus Kennedy an-
chor a squad that would excel in the Big Ten, not just
It's not proper to laud the Wolverines for their per-
formance last night. They messed up and made a
laugher into a stomach-churner. But they're still 3-0.
What's Michigan State's record?
Women pull one out
by Matthew Dodge
Daily Basketball Writer
When the Michigan women's basketball
team dragged itself into the lockerroom at
halftime of its game at Bowling Green last
night, the squad was tired. Weekend bouts with
the flu caused the Wolverines' legs to feel as if
they had walked all the way to Ohio.
Instead, the experienced Michigan team
walked all over their hosts down the stretch,
winning 70-63. Ignoring their mental and
physical exhaustion, the Wolverines outscored
the Falcons 8-0 in the final 1:40.
Bowling Green, which has been invited to
the NCAA Tournament each of the last four
years, was expected to give Michigan more
than it could handle this early in the season.
But it may have buoyed the Wolverines into
future good times.
"Playing a team like that will no doubt
help us down the stretch," Michigan coach Bud
VanDeWege said. "The win will pay big divid-
ends down the road.
"At halftime, I told the team, they could
succumb to the fatigue, or go out and win the
game. I give credit to every player for digging
down, and wanting to win. It was a gutsy
Though Bowling Green had no alibi of
illness, Michigan sophomore Nikki Beaudry
made the Falcon defense look sick. Beaudry
scored acareer-high 19 points and grabbed a
sky-high 12 rebounds, while playing 35
"I was tired, but every time we made a good
play, it would erase the fatigue," Beaudry said.
"It was a good win against a good team. We
proved, with our sickness, that we can
But Beaudry was even more impressive in
overcoming the pseudo-obstacle of Bowling
Green's inside defense. The 6-0 forward
incessantly slashed between the Falcons' big
people during the first half, where she knocked
down 12 points.
"I looked at the gaps, and they were there,
so I took them," Beaudry said. "They seemed
to let me have the lane."
Center Trish Andrew could say the same
thing. Andrew popped for 12 points, and ripped
six boards. From the point, Leah Wooldridge
produced a steady eight points, four assists, and
only two turnovers in 33 minutes. Senior
guard Carol Szczechowski scored 16, and
swiped 11 rebounds.
Bowling Green's Judit Lendvay hit a 14-
footer with 1:40 remaining to give the Falcons
a 63-62 lead. But Andrew made both ends of a
one-and-one, then Szczechowski picked up
where Beaudry left off by hitting four straight
free throws in the final 1:30.

Michigan's tough interior defense and
Eastern's poor shooting from the first half
were gone. The Hurons shot over 70 percent,
scoring against everything the Wolverines
threw at them. Eastern also employed a tough
full court press that stymied the Michigan
offense. During the streak, Kory Hallas and
Roger Lewis combined for 13 points.
Michigan came back, and 'after an Eric
Riley tip-in, the Wolverine lead reached double
digits once again, 71-61.
However, the Hurons' Carl Thomas had
already taken over. The 6-foot-4 senior, who
did not score from the floor during the first 20
minutes, exploded in the second stanza. He
sandwiched three 3-point baskets around around
two Marcus Kennedy layups to cut Michigan's
lead to five with just under three minutes
Taylor hit both ends of a one-and-one to put
the Wolverines up by seven. Thomas answered
back for Eastern with yet another 3-pointer to
make the score 73-69.
The Wolverines tried milking the clock -
but no one realized the 45 second clock was
running low and the ball flew out of bounds as
Following a Michael Talley foul, Neely hit
two free throws to cut the Wolverine margin to
two with :29.5 left. The teams traded foul
shots, including four straight by Talley, before
Hallas completed a three-point play to make
the score 76-75.
With :7.7 remaining, Lewis stripped the
ball from Pelinka and was fouled. However,
Lewis missed both foul shots. When Talley
came down with the rebound Lewis fouled
him. Talley sank the second free throw to ice

Tim Keough, a junior goaltender
on the Michigan hockey team,
announced Monday that he no longer
intends to play with the Wolverines.
Keough entered this season as
one of three candidates to replace the
graduating Warren Sharples, but after
starting two of the Wolverines' first
four games, he did not receive
nod from Michigan coach R
his last playing
time when he re-
lieved Steve Shie-
Ids in the Wolver-
ines' 7-4 loss to
Ferris State on
November 3. As
the season wore
on, Chris Gordon Keough
moved ahead of
Keough on the depth charts, which
became evident when Gordon made
the trip to Boston last weekend and
Keough stayed home.
Gordon then played a crucial role
ein the Wolverines' 8-6 come-from-
behind victory over Boston Univer-
sity last Friday, and earned th
starting assignment against Bostoi
"I don't think he was happy with
his role on the team," Berenson said.
"He told me he was losing the fire,
that he wasn't enjoying it any more.
When that happens, it's hard."
Academics were cited as the
primary reason for his leaving the
team. The Canton, Mich., native is a.
junior in the business school.
Keough was the lone returner n
goal from last year's squad for
Michigan as both Shields and Gor-
don are newcomers.
