If you are a Michigan basketball
fan, you may want to sit down be-
fore you read this story.
Frosh standouts Chris Webber
and Jalen Rose have been sidelined in
their preseason initiation to big-
time basketball. Each sustained sig-
nificant injuries during Wolverine
practices last weekend.
Webber suffered a mild sprain of
the right knee Sunday when Michi-
gan center Eric Riley - who was
drawing a charge - fell on the new-
comer's leg. Coach Steve Fisher's
heart may have stopped.
"It did not look good when
(Webber) went down," Fisher said.
"You're always scared when that
happens. But I probably wasn't as
scared as he was."
Webber will miss up to 10 days
of practice, though this prognostica-
tion is tentative. The 6-foot-9 for-
ward has hobbled around on
crutches all week wearing heavy
knee wraps. Michigan trainer David
Ralston said the return of Webber
to the playing floor will depend on
the success of his rehabilitation.
"Chris is now able to bear
weight on the leg, which is a good
sign," Ralston said. "He is being
diligent and aggressive in the fol-
low-up. We have to take it one day
to the next, but he has progressed
well in the first two days."
"A knee injury is the scariest in-
jury for an athlete to have," Webber
said. "The first day, I was really
scared. But it's not as bad as it used
to be, I feel like it's improving. At
least the injury is not career-threat-
Rose stretched a ligament in the
middle finger of his right hand. The
6-foot-7 swingman from Detroit,
who has been playing well in the
first two weeks of practice, contin-
ues to participate in workouts,
though his skills are limited.
The southpaw shooter has trou-
ble handling the basketball. His
shot also is hindered by an inability
to guide the ball with the injured
right hand. The Michigan trainers
wrapped his injured off-hand in a
bandage that resembles a boxing
"You have to live for today and
deal with the task at hand," Rose
said. "All you can do is play hard
and conquer those tasks."
Senior guard Kirk Taylor also
suffered an injury last week. He had
been experiencing back spasms, but
has been able to practice this week
His condition is not serious.
"I've had my surgery," he said
with a smile. "Enough is enough."

Bradley-Doppes achieves goals

YPSILANTI - The Michigan
volleyball team travelled to Ypsi-
lanti with three objectives for its
match against Eastern Michigan: (1)
rest Michelle Horrigan, (2) give
some of the younger players more
playing time and (3) to win. The
Wolverines accomplished all three
goals, but it turned out to be more
of a challenge than they expected.
"I'm pleased with getting out
with a win, and I'm also glad we got
out of here in four games," Michi-
gan coach Peggy Bradley-Doppes
said. "When you play against a rival
like Eastern, you can throw all the
Michigan defeated the Eagles, 3-
1 (15-3, 15-10, 10-15, 17-15), yester-
day. The victory was the fourth in a
row for the Wolverines (6-4 in the
Big Ten, 14-6 overall).
The Wolverines jumped out to an
early 12-1 lead in the first game.
Hayley Lorenzen starting in place
of Horrigan lead the Wolverine at-
tack with five kills. Chris White
helped maintain the Michigan lead
with three kills and a service ace.
The next three games were not de-
cided as easily.
The Wolverines fell behind, 4-7,
in the second game but mounted a
rally to tie the score at 10-10.
Michigan then rolled off five unan-
swered points, led by three kills
At the beginning of the third
game, White went down with a mi-
nor sprain of her left ankle. The
Wolverines played tentatively after
the injury and succumbed to the Ea-
gles, 10-15. Eastern was led by the
play of Stacy Graham including two
aces to end the game.
"I would have loved all of the
games to go like the first one did,"
Bradley-Doppes said. "After Chris
(White) was injured, I think we
came out a little tentatively."
The Eagles' momentum carried
into the fourth game. Eastern (3-7 in
the Mid-American Conference, 7-15
overall) stormed out to a 6-2 lead.
Behind the efforts of JoAnna Col-
lias, Michigan tied the score at 6-6.
The Wolverines pulled ahead to a
12-6 lead but were unable to close
the door. Eastern climbed back in it
and were on the verge of forcing a
fifth game at 14-12. However, the
Wolverines slammed the door, 17-
Lorenzen started in place of the
resting Horrigan and provided of-
fensive power throughout the
match. Lorenzen tallied 18 kills on
"Hayley is a great athlete,"
Bradley-Doppes said. "If we can get
her the ball enough, she really
comes through for us,"
Bradley-Doppes decided to rest
Horrigan because of the Wolver-
ines' busy schedule this week.
Sophomore outside hitter Michelle Horrigan played sparingly during
yesterday's victory. Fiona Davidson (2) led the Wolverines with 20 kills.
Mallory suspended, silent about refs
by Theodore Cox
Daily Football Writer
Don't expect Big Ten coaches to
complain about officiating anytime
soon. Big Ten commissioner Jim
Delany made an example out of In-
diana coach Bill Mallory last week
for his criticism of the officiating
during the Indiana-Michigan game.
Mallory was offered the option
of paying a $10,000 fine or sitting
out last weekend's Wisconsin game
for his remarks. He chose the latter
and spent Saturday watching his
team on television.
During yesterday's teleconfer-
ence, he remained quiet on the issue.
"I'm kind of in a tough position
to comment on it," Mallory said. "I
just want to get this thing buried."
Michigan coach Gary Moeller
was the only coach who came out
opposed to the new rule that was in-
stituted for all Big Ten sports this
'I always felt it was too big a
penalty," Moeller said. "When you
have a blanket policy like that for
all sports, it makes me nervous be-
cause a football coach losing one
game and a baseball coach losing a
game - there's a great deal of dif-
ference in the amount of time lost
and the importance in one of those
games. That bothers me. I would not
like to be taken away from my
Illinois coach and atiletic direc-
tor John Mackovic explained how
the rule came about.
"This is something the Big Ten
conference has wrestled with for a
number of years. People were inter-
ested in it being a rule -that if it's
in the rule book, that it had some
teeth to it and that it could be en-
forced," Mackovic said.
TIGHTENING THE BELT: The
NCAA is cutting the number of
scholarships football teams can
hand out. The 15 percent cut should
bring more parity to the Big Ten.
Currently, top 20 teams are able
to recruit quality backup players to
fill the voids injuries create. How-
ever, the cuts will force many of
these reserves to attend schools such
as Wisconsin and Northwestern.
"There isn't any question that
that will help someone like us,"
Badger coach Barry Alvarez said.
"It just allows us to get players
that might go to another school."

HOCKEY NOTEBOOK officials, ice vs. State
by Andy De Korte
Daily Hockey Writer
Hockey officials usually bother fans primarily by
signalling a penalty against the home team.
However, during the Michigan-Michigan State
game last Saturday, the referee added a new twist to his
activities. Twirling his fingers like an air traffic con-
troller, Brent Rutherford stopped play a grand total
of 24 times in order to bring both teams on the ice. An
open skate was necessary to try and clear the fog that
had formed above the playing surface.
Although they downplayed the significance of the
ice conditions and the numerous breaks in play, both
coaches said their teams felt the effects.
"It probably favored us because we were going with
five defensemen," Michigan State coach Ron Mason
said. "But all kinds of things happen in a hockey game."
"We really don't want to make any excuses,"
Michigan coach Red Berenson said. "Both teams had
to play on the same surfaces, but it made it harder for
us to concentrate."
At the point the first break in the action was called,
Michigan led by two goals. The game ended in a 4-4 tie.
A NEW SOUND AT YOST: What can you get for
dinner, t-shirts, and tickets to a hockey game? A band, if
you are the Michigan Athletic Department.
Because the regular hockey band was committed to
playing in Michigamua, the athletic department en-
listed the services of the Detroit Catholic Central band
for the aforementioned items.
"This week, we learned the fight song and a few
others. We've been playing them and some of our own
stuff tonight," trombonist Chris Mullally said. "It's
The musicians were well accepted by most in atte.-
dance, including Berenson.
"The band did a good job. It was. probably the
toughest game a band will have to do at Yost this
year," Berenson said. "I was disappointed our band
wasn't here because they're so good."

The Michigan men's lacrosse
club went into the West Virginia
Mountaineer Invitational with
more than a small hill to climb.
Facing a field made up of East
Coast schools and skilled city
clubs, the Wolverines had a strong
showing to finish in a tie for fifth
place in the 16-team tournament.
The tournament marked the end of
the club's fall season.
"It was a good tune-up,"
Michigan coach Bob DiGiovanni
said. "Given the limited number of
players we were able. to take and
that half of the competition were
city clubs, I'm definitely pleased
with the results."
Michigan's lost its opening
match, 8-3, to the Maryland
Lacrosse Club, which consists of
former NCAA all-Americans and
The Wolverines then reeled off
three straight victories to make it
into Sunday's final six. Michigan
dispatched Carnegie Mellon, 4-2,
Slippery Rock, 8-1, and host West
Michigan was one of only two
university teams to qualify for
Sunday's portion of the tourna-
ment. The other four finalists con-
sisted of powerful city and re-
gional club teams. Unfortunately,
the Wolverines came up short and
lost to the North Virginia
Lacrosse Club, 7-5.
Senior midfielder John Paul
considered the level of competition
"I was pretty impressed with
the field," he said. "It gave us a
chance to play some of the best city
and college clubs in the country."
Junior Dave Morath paced the
Wolverines with seven goals and
two assists. Senior Adam Levy tal-
lied six goals and one assist. Paul
chipped in with four goals and
three assists, and Tony DiGiovanni
scored three goals and assisted on
Levy was also pleased with the
team's performance. "We were
never really out of any of the
games," he said. "It all came down
to experienced players from other
teams using their knowledge of
lacrosse to take advantage of our
dumb mistakes and make smart
Sophomore attacker DiG iovanni
summarized the team's outlook af-
ter the fall season. "We've got lots
of new faces, and even though we
lost a lot of talent from last year, I
think we filled in pretty well this
fall," he said. "We're well on our
way to a three-peat in Big Ten ac-
tion this spring."
The Wolverines now take a
break between the fall matches and
the spring Big Ten season. They
will resume their efforts toward a
championship with tryouts in Jan-

Young women's rugby squad
slips by younger Illinois St., 8-4
by Rich Mitvalsky
Daily Sports Writer
The Michigan women's rugby
team overcame the rain and chilly
weather to defeat Illinois State, 8-
4, at Mitchell Field Saturday.
While the Wolverines are a
young team, the Illinois State pro-
gram, in its first year, is even more
of a novice squad.
"We have a very inexperienced
team this year," first-year Michi-
gan coach Lisa Ruby said. "It's hard
in a team sport especially to see
rookies out there making mistakes
"However, they play very hard
and have a lot of potential."
The Wolverines scored first on
a goal by junior fullback Juliette
Rodgers, but then allowed the only
try by Illinois State this season, ty-
ing the score. An added try in the
second half secured the victory for
the Wolverines, but not without a
bit of worrying.
The mud and rain limited scor-
ing opportunities as the ball regu-
larly slipped from player's grasps..
"It was definitely hard to keep
possession of the ball because it
was so slippery," junior fly half
Kerry Sayers said. "But (the mud)
made a lot of the tackles and hits
