Big Ten
by David Schechter
Daily Basketball Writer
CHICAGO - If Indiana or
Ohio State wins the Big Ten quest
for No. 1 this season no one will be
surprised.
At least not the majority of the
eleven head coaches present at yes-
terday's third annual Big Ten
Coaches Conference in Chicago.
Michigan's Steve Fisher, Ill-
inois' Lou Henson, Michigan
State's Jud Heathcote, and several
others conceded that the Buckeyes
and the Hoosiers will be the cream
of the conference this year.
"Indiana, in my mind, is the
team to beat, but it appears to be a
two-team race," Fisher said.
However, Michigan basketball
has made a stir of its own. Some of
the names of the Wolverine's fabu-
lous five frosh were bantered
about. "I think Michigan has the
ability, if they would click, to win
it all," Henson said.
Heathcote also realizes the po-
tential of the young Michigan
team. "Steve .has a team that's
gonna be great. Absolutely great.
But not this year."
Indiana's Bobby Knight doesn't
believe much in preseason predic-
tions. "I've never been able to make
predictions. That's like mental
masturbation," Knight said to a
quiet rumble of shock.
Still Indiana is an early favorite
because of its blend of talent and
experience. Several coaches men-
tioned Knight's star forward Cal-
bert Cheaney as one of the biggest
offensive threats in the Big Ten.
A major issue of concern for the
coaches was administrative inter-
vention into their programs. Re-
cently, the NCAA eliminated one
coach from each coaching staff for
monetary reasons. Legislation was
also passed by the NCAA aimed at
controlling summer basketball

The split is a bowler's nightmare.
But for Michigan women's volley-
ball coach Peggy Bradley-Doppes, a
split indicates progress.
For the past four weekends, the
Wolverines (4-4 in the Big Ten, 12-6
overall) have gone 1-1 in their
weekend matches. And considering
their next two matches are against
Big Ten second-place squad Illinois
(7-1, 11-4) and seventh-place Purdue
(3-5, 6-11), another split is conceiv-
able. But Bradley-Doppes points out
that there is no way the club is set-
tling for .500 weekends.
"We haven't settled for any-
thing," she explained. "I'm just
very happy with the team; they're
playing their hearts out. If we win,
that's great."
"It's been unfortunate to have
losses, but it's such a comeback
from last year," setter-middle
blocker Tarnisha Thompson said.
"It's been a progressive year."
The Wolverines hope to continue
that progress against the highly-re-
garded Fighting Illini tonight. A
slew of players have performed

iorna ienderson stanas out. She
leads the team with 243 kills, 252
digs, and 30 aces.
"She's a monster," Bradley-
Doppes said of Henderson. "She's as
good as her number. She's a strong,
fierce competitor."
'I'm just very happy
with the team. If we
win, that's great'
- Peggy Bradley-Doppes
Michigan volleyball coach
Last year, Michigan upset the
Fighting Illini at Keen Arena.
However, due to the fact that
Illinois is mostly composed of
younger players, revenge will not be
much of a factor.
"I'd say if there was, but there
really isn't (a desire for revenge),"
Illinois coach Dr. Mike Hebert said.
"It's a Big Ten match, and we want
to do as well as we can."
Hebert has not stressed any spe-
cific factor to thwart the Wol-
verines. "They're well-balanced and

sai.
Michigan will try something
different, though. Chris White wile
move to the middle, and Aimee
Smith will shift to the right side of
the court. Thompson will also r;
tate in and out with Julie Scherer.
The Wolverines will have to re-
gard Saturday's opponent in a dif-
ferent light. The Boilermakers arer
struggling, and coach Carol Dewey 4
is not happy with her players' per-
formance. Dewey has stressed to her,
squad that Michigan is much-im-
proved from last year. "We're not,
in a position to take anyone.,
lightly," Dewey said.
Purdue is led by outside hitters'
Carey Burvis, who holds a.240 hit'-
ting percentage, and Darcy Jones,::
who is averaging 2.98 kills per
game.
Saturday night will be
"Special" night of volleyball for
the Wolverine fans. Ann Arbor
Special Olympic athletes will be'
awarded special designated seats and'

the Michigan players after the game.

Michigan first-year guard Ray Jackson rises over the rim for a dunk at
Midnight Madness earlier this year. The Big Ten coaches agreed at
yesterday's conference that Jackson along with the other four
Wolverine rookies should make an immediate impact this season.

camps. Though coaches find some
validity in their changes, re-
sentment exists in their ranks be-
cause they exercise very little con-
trol in the creation of these rules.
One rule change that affects the
Big Ten coaches directly is the
league's new rule regarding their
behavior. They will be fined
$10,000 and suspended one game
for "conduct unbecoming of a
coach."
"I've never seen conduct unbe-
coming of a coach," Heathcote said.
"But, the coaches should be put on
the pedestal, certainly not the play-
ers. I'm not sure I'm enamored
with the fine. I think that signals

something more severe than it
should be. I've said often that you
could commit a lot of almost
major crimes and not get fined
$10,000.
"But certainly we want to set
the guidelines and set the standards
for sportsmanlike conduct. And if
this is what we need then, why, per-
haps it's a step in the right direc-
tion."
A new face joined the ten
regular attendees on the stage at
yesterday's luncheon. Penn State
coach Bruce Parkhill was on hand,
as his squad gets set to begin
conference play in 1992-93.

If Michigan field hockey's up-
coming weekend rematches against
Northwestern and Iowa, both in
Iowa City, are to be scripted as
movies, they could either turn out
to be "Nightmare on Elm Street
Part II" or "Rocky II".
"We played two totally differ-
ent games against the two teams,"
junior forward Katie Thomas said.
"Northwestern jumped on us early
and controlled the pace of the game.
Iowa was our best game of the sea-
son because we controlled the of-
fense and put the pressure on them."
In their first contest against the
No. 7 Wildcats, the Wolverines (2-3
in the conference, 7-6 overall) were
soundly defeated, 6-0. Against the
No. 5 Hawkeyes, Michigan lost in
overtime, 2-0, but only after having

three goals disallowed in the first
half.
The first-place Hawkeyes (5-0 in
the Big Ten, 11-1-1) feature the con-
ference's top two scorers in senior
Lisa Sweeny and sophomore Heather
Bryant. Second-place Northwestern
(4-0-1, 10-3-1) is led by senior
Colleen Senich, who is tied for sec-
ond in conference scoring with
Bryant, and rookie Kathleen Sul-
livan, who scored four goals in the
first contest against the Wolver-
ines.
Michigan counters with a stingy
defense which has been allowing
less than one goal per game since the
Northwestern game. Sophomore
goalie Nicole Hoover, who was
benched in the Northwestern con-
test, has rebounded to record three
shutouts during this stretch.

Scoring opportunities have also
improved dramatically since thp~ ;
Iowa game, but the offense has yet
to light-up the scoreboard.
"We are much more confident
going into these games than we wed
the first time around," Michigan as-
sistant Meri Dembrow said. "The
way we played against Iowa ha
given us that confidence."
In this Jekyll and Hyde drama'
will Freddy Krueger once again reel:
his ugly head for the Wolverines :in,
the form of the explosive offenses,
Iowa and Northwestern feature? Q
will the spirit and determination ,
Rocky Balboa come through for tlje'
Wolverines with their defensive'
prowess, finally getting that knock
out punch against a highly-ranked4*
opponent? That all will depend ori,
who decides to run the projector,.
this weekend in Iowa City.
