Women kickers tie 20-victory record



by Tim Rardin
Daily Sports Writer
Most club soccer teams don't
*even play 20 games in a season, much
less win 20. But the Michigan
women's soccer team did just that,
tying last year's school record for
victories in a season. Following a
tough loss to Michigan State last
Thursday, the Wolverines bounced
back to go 2-1 over the weekend in a
tournament held at Ohio State.
Michigan suffered its second
consecutive loss and only its second
*oss of the season Saturday, falling
to Kentucky 3-2. Junior Jenny Stein-
hebel and Sophomore Lisa Ashton
provided the scoring for the
Wolverines, with Junior Chrissy
Rice guarding the Michigan net.
Sophomore Carrie Taylor said
that Kentucky was better than ex-
"We didn't know a whole lot
4about them coming in," she said.
"They were a pretty good team. I
think they're going varsity next
Steinhebel felt that Michigan
dominated play despite the one goal
"It was a really tight match, but
I think we definitely dominated,"
she said. "We just had a really diffi-
cult time putting the ball in the net.
*It was really frustrating."
The Wolverines redeemed them-
selves in their second game Satur-
day, thrashing IU-Pennsylvania, 9-0.

However, the score could have been
much more lopsided considering the
fact that IU-Pennsylvania gave up
ten minutes before the first half
Junior Molly Douma con-
tributed a hat trick to Michigan's
cause and fellow sophomores Ash-
ton and Neysa Colizzi each chipped
in two. Senior Heather Marshall
and frosh Michelle McQuaid
rounded out the attack with a goal
First-year player Lisa Bennett
handled goaltending duties for the
"They were obviously a team
just starting out," Marshall said.
"They didn't even have enough play-
ers for substitutions."
The final game of the weekend
pitted Michigan against host Ohio
State. The Wolverines, behind the
goalkeeping of Rice and frosh Anne
Hollar, recorded its second shutout
of the weekend, winning 3-0.
Ashton tallied her fourth goal
of the weekend to get Michigan
started. Marshall struck next,
adding the Wolverines' second goal
of the game and her second of the
tournament. Senior Lori Green
scored the final goal off an assist
from frosh Karen Jones.
Taylor said that the score could
have been worse, but Michigan coach
Phil Joyaux substituted heavily.
"We totally dominated the
game," Taylor said. "They were no

season, went 2-1 in its weekend matches.

threat at all, so a lot of players got a
chance to play."
Taylor further noted that the
tournament as a whole was not run
very well.
"The tournament was really un-
organized," she said. "Some teams

even played each other twice. We
don't even know who won because
we left early."
The Wolverines will defend
their 20-2-2 season record at home
against Schoolcraft at 6:00 p.m.

night: center of the
Big Ten's universe
by David Schechter
Daily Basketball Writer
Imagine if the Big Ten was really some sort of far-off universe.
Ten coaches would play the part of the planets circling around the
center of the solar system- and Bobby Knight would be the sun.
Last week's Big Ten Coaches Conference was a demonstration of how
truly unique Knight is. All of the Big Ten coaches filed into a grand ball-
room with faces that said, "Let's get down to business." They wore suits,
ties and looked finely kept. One by one they found their respective seats
on a long elevated dais. They were ready to field questions from the me-
dia and talk about their teams.
As all the coaches sat patiently waiting for the event to begin, there
was one empty seat on the platform with a name plate that read Bob
Knight. No one seemed too surprised to find his seat vacant. I even heard
someone whisper, "Oh Knight, I heard he skips these things sometimes."
SKIPS THESE THINGS? Who would have the nerve to skip this
once-a-year event where a coach's attendance is mandatory. And then I
saw that name plate. And then I saw that empty seat. And then I knew.
Now, I'm not sure if that whisper was telling me the truth or not,
but after a few minutes Knight did waltz into the room. No suit, no tie,
no freshly combed locks. On this day he decided to draw on his oft-no-
ticed Adidas sweater wardrobe. Maybe he had just finished a round of 18
holes and thought this was the clubhouse grill.
Or maybe he knew exactly where he was.
It's no secret that Knight treats the media like red-headed step-
children. Knight would rather accept a one-on-one lunch date with
Illinois' Lou Henson and pick up the tab than spend an entire afternoon
with a bunch of quote-mongers.
"This question is for Bobby," one reporter bellowed from the back of
the room. "A lot of people have picked you to win the Big Ten. What do
you tell your team about how to handle all the expectations?"
And all of a sudden my heart went out for that one reporter.
"I don't tell them anything," Knight said as his canine teeth dripped
with fresh saliva. After a long pause, he was kind enough to continue. "I
haven't told them how good they are. It's you guys who keep telling
them how good they are."
There are just some questions you can't ask Bobby Knight. The prob-
lem? No one is really sure what those questions are. If he doesn't like the
question you're asking, or how you're asking it, he'll let you know.
Still, Knight is the one coach to which almost every member of the
media addressed their questions. He is the most colorful, the most
quotable, the most outspoken, the most respected, and the most feared
coach in the league. Maybe in the country.
That list gives you some idea why Knight shines like the sun in his
own little solar system. Not only do the reporters seek him out, but
other coaches subtly look to him for his approval. When they answer
questions, coaches pepper their language with "Like Bobby said," or "I
agree with Bobby on this one." And why shouldn't they?
Who would want to cross Bobby Knight when they know that in nine
out of 10 arguments his stubbornness and powerful personality can carry
him through? And on the tenth time he'll throw a chair.
Other coaches will beat Bobby Knight, but they will never join him.

Michigan crew successfully enters the middle


by Tim Spolar
Daily Sports Writer
The Michigan crew team had one
*of its strongest showings of the sea-
son in last weekend's Head of the
Schuylkill. Both the men's and
women's squads raced three boats,
finishing in the middle of their re-
spective packs in Saturday's annual
Rowed just outside of Philadel-
phia, this race is one of the season's
largest, with over 50 teams entered
in the competition. The field
*included several Ivy League schools
which are among the best teams in
the nation.
"We finished in about the mid-
dle (of the teams)," men's varsity
team member Tedd Tennis said.
"It's really good to come in in the
middle. This is a big step forward

for our program."
While a middle-of-the-pack fin-
ish appears poor at first glance, one
must only account for the level of
competition to understand the satis-
faction expressed by Tennis. Michi-
gan usually competes against only
midwestern schools, while the oars
of the nation's elite normally pound
the Eastern seaboard's waterways.
"This was our first time out
east," Tennis said. "The competition
is a lot tougher out there. I think it
was a tremendous learning experi-
ence for our program as a whole."
The Wolverines remained true to
form yesterday in the Princeton
Chase. The Wolverines again
finished well off the winning pace,
yet were able to come away from
the regatta with not only a taste of
top-notch competition, but rave

reviews from Ivy League coaches.
"We rowed against the cream of
collegiate rowing," Michigan
women's varsity coach Charley Sul-
livan said. "We dominated the other
Midwest crews we rowed against,
including Notre Dame and Wash-
ington University in St. Louis. We
hung with the leaders for nearly
three-fourths of the race, which was
very strong. Above all, we got to
experience the attitude and taste the
aggressiveness of these tremendous
programs. This should be a great
building block for. Michigan crew.
"Two year ago, (faring this{
well) would not have been possi-
ble," Sullivan added. "I rowed out
east as an undergrad, and many of my
old teammates, coaches, and oppo-
nents are still involved in programs

out there. They unanimously praised
the size and improvement of our
program, which was spectacular."
Sullivan also remarked that the
squad took note of the trappings
which are reaped by prestigious
powerhouses such as Princeton.
"The course at Princeton is one
of the finest in the world," he said.
"Their boat house is also one of the
nicest we've ever seen. I think it
helps (Michigan's rowers) envision
what it's like to row in a successful
The squad will row in the Head
of the Elk in two weeks, in which
the Michigan women took first and
the men third last year.
