Men's volleyball
falls to Illinois

by Dan Linna
Daily Sports Writer
A Jekyll and Hyde performance
by the Michigan men's volleyball
team resulted in the Wolverines'
loss to Illinois in the quarterfinals
of the Big Ten Preseason Tourna-
After trouncing the Illini, 15-2,
the Wolverines took a 15-8 beating
in the second game. With the match
knotted at one game each the
Wolverines fell, 15-17, in a rally-
scoring game and were knocked out
of the tournament.
"We're still trying to find out
how to keep our momentum,"
Michigan coach Tom Johengen said.
"A lot of the problem is concentra-
tion and having the poise to continue
to play well when things are not go-
ing well."
Michigan began the 15-team
tournament by defeating Indiana and
Park College by identical 2-0 scores,
and splitting with Wisconsin and
Purdue Saturday.
Michigan was seeded third and
was scheduled to play Purdue in the
quarterfinals yesterday. However,
Michigan was forced to play the
fifth seed, Illinois because of a rule
stipulating that teams who ad-

Michigan Daily Athlete-of-the-Week

WHO: Trish Andrew
TEAM: Women's basketball
HOMETOWN: Northfield, Ill.
YEAR: Junior

WHY: Andrew, one of the Wolverines' tri-captains, followed up her 25-point effort
against the Cuban national team in the preseason with 27 points, 10 rebounds, six blocked
shots, and three steals to lead Michigan in its 86-67 victory over Boston College yesterday.
BACKGROUND: Andrew is the all-time Michigan blocked shots leader after only two
seasons ... has led the Big Ten in that category in both her previous seasons ... received
all-Big Ten honorable mention recognition last year ... 27 points bests previous high
mark of 22, reached twice last season ... 1989 all-State, all-America selection at famed
New Trier High School in Chicago suburbs ... led NTHS to 29-2 record as state Class A
runner-up ... enrolled in College of Literature, Science and Arts.
Gators beat Seminoles, 14-9

in the quarterfinals.
"We're kind of disappointed,"
senior Kurt Schroeder said. "We
played well on Saturday and we
hoped to do better yesterday but we
just didn't execute as well as we had
While the team had higher ex-
pectations coming into the tourna-
ment the Wolverines feel they are
developing well.
"Part of the reason we're happy
is that we know we can whoop every
team in the Big Ten," junior Soren
Juul said. "When we play on an
emotional high we are unbeatable.
Against Illinois, we went from a
high to burying our heads in the
Johengen said Michigan has gone
into last two tournaments feeling.
confident that they would be able to
advance to the finals.
"I was talking to Michigan
State's coach, and he thought a lot of
the other teams would be gunning
for Michigan and Michigan State,"
Johengen said. "I think people get
up against us. They play hard against
us. There aren't going to be any easy

and decided to stay as a matter of
pride. The Wolverine coaching staff
is not taking that issue lightly and
as custom and a precaution, they
have been scouting the upstart U of
D team. Fisher was spotted at a Ti
tan game in Cobo Hall Tuesday.
Although they lost to Chicago
State in their season opener, Fishet
isn't ready to write the Titans off.
"We have to one, make sure
we're prepared to play hard," Fisher
said. "You think, 'Well Detroit got
beat by Chicago State.' Some people
would laugh and say, 'Michigan's
gonna beat them by 100 points.' But
when I came to Detroit in my first*
year here we never led until the
(final) minute or so. Detroit was
more excited to play that one than
we were."
Excitement and pride aside,
Fisher believes that the sheer fact
that this is the opening game of the
'91-'92 season should be motivation
enough for his team.
The Wolverines are the last Big"
Ten team to open up their regular-
season schedule.
"We've got to take advantage of
the time that we've got," Fisher
said. "Others are out playing and go-
ing back to work on all the things
they see they've done wrong. We
haven't had all those opportuni-
As a result, the Wolverines
placed extra emphasis on their two*
pre-season games with the Cuban
National team and Athletes in Ac-
tion. The team also held a series of
public intrasquad scrimmages after
the conclusion of football games to
generate extra experience for this
young team.
Fisher's, starting lineup will in-
clude Talley and Rose at the guards,
with Webber and Voskuil at the
forwards. Eric Riley and Juwan
Howard are battling for the start-
ing spot at center.
"Right now I'm not sure
whether I'm gonna start Juwan or

Eric," Fisher said.
As of last Tuesday's practice, Ri-
ley was not part of the blue squad,
the color that the starting team
wears in practice.
The Wolverines have been work-
ing on limiting turnovers. Last
week against Athletes in Action,
Michigan committed 16 turnovers
on inbound plays and fast breaks
alone. "We did a film session with
them and showed them their
turnovers, and why they happened,"
Fisher said.

Florida State, the nation's top team
for nearly three months, is now
only third-best in its own state.
No. 5 Florida handed the third-
ranked Seminoles their second con-
secutive loss Saturday, knocking its
intrastate rival out of the national
championship picture with a 14-9
The triumph was the eighth
straight for Florida (10-1), which
won its first official Southeastern
Conference championship this sea-
son and is headed to the Sugar Bowl
to play Notre Dame. It also stopped
a four-game losing streak to Florida
State and means the Gators are no
worse than second-best in the state
after being considered No. 3 for the
past five years.
"It's been a long time coming,"
Florida defensive tackle 'Brad
Culpepper said. "I'd rather beat
them four years in a row, but I'm
proud to be part of the team that
stopped the streak."
Florida State (10-2) lost the No.
1 ranking to Miami two weeks ago
and finishes last in the state by
virtue of its 0-2 record against the
Hurricanes and Gators. The Semi-
noles will close the season against
Texas A&M in the Cotton Bowl.
"Being No. 1, we were a target
all year. We might have run out of
some juice at the end," Florida State
quarterback Casey Weldon said. "I

don't think we can even consider it a
good season now with the expecta-
tions we had."
Shane Matthews threw for 208
yards and one touchdown, and Errict
Rhett rushed for 109 yards and one
touchdown. However, the key was
the Florida defense, which harassed
Weldon into a subpar performance
and held Florida State to 37 yards
net rushing.
"It was one of the most emo-
tional games I think I've ever been
around as a player or as a coach,"
Florida coach Steve Spurrier said.
"There was constant electricity. It
seemed the game depended on every
Matthews, who completed 13 of
30 passes for 208 yards, gave Florida
a 14-3 lead when he rolled to his
right to avoid a heavy rush and
found Harrison Houston streaking
downfield against Florida State
linebacker Reggie Freeman on a 72-
yard touchdown play.
Freeman was left with single
coverage of Houston when FSU
cornerb'ack Terrell Buckley moved
up to stop Matthews from running.
Freeman, trailing the receiver,
slightly overran the pass while
Houston made an adjustment and
sprinted away from the stumbling
linebacker after making the catch.
"It was a busted play really,"
said Buckley, a Matthews' high
school teammate who had two in-

terceptions and set a NCAA record
for return yardage in a career.
The 11-point lead appeared safe
until late in the fourth quarter
when Weldon, who lost one fumble
and threw an interception, finally
got Florida State's offense on track.
FSU, which failed to score a
touchdown on two possessions in-
side the Florida five, drove 80 yards
to pull within six points when
Amp Lee scored on a 25-yard pass
play with 5:24 to go. The Seminoles
got the ball back a minute later, but
Weldon's bid to overcome a poor
three quarters fell short when
Florida stopped him on downs at
the Gators' 14.
Weldon, who completed 24 of 51
passes for 305 yards, had similar
problems producing points in FSU's
17-16 loss to Miarni. The Seminoles
failed to score touchdowns on three
possessions inside the 20 against the
Hurricanes and sputtered whenever
they got near the goal line again
Penalties undermined two
threats, and Weldon was sacked and
fumbled for a 23-yard loss to knock
Florida State out of field-goal range
on one drive. On the last march, the
Seminoles' quarterback couldn't get
the ball to a wide-open Kevin Knox
on third down, then had a fourth-
pass broken up in the end zone by
Florida's Will White.

Chris Webber will be one of many Motown products playing in the
Wolverines' game tonight against Detroit Mercy at Cobo Arena.

and they slammed it shut with a real
good effort.
"When Trish came back in, she
exploded," he added. "She's not the
one you expect to go out and create a
lot defensively on the ball, but she
was like a one man press there for a
while. While she was so good at
scoring, it was that one stretch de-
fensively that meant a lot."
A standout performance was
turned in by Nuanes. Starting at
point guard, Nuanes persistently ha-
rassed BC's ballhandlers and also
notched 22 points, including several
baskets at key junctures in the sec-
ond half. Her two-way effort keyed

the game's tempo and outcome.
"Jennifer is a good player,"
VanDeWege said. "She is very quick,
she handles the ball well, she can
shoot the three outside, she can
drive. She really is our best all-
around perimeter player, there's no
question about it. As soon as she
gains her confidence, she's going to
be really, really tough."
The match also marked a home-
coming of sorts for Plotzke. In her
12th year as BC's head coach,
Plotzke was a Michigan assistant
for three seasons after graduating
from Eastern Michigan in 1976.
"It was a real special feeling
coaching here," Plotzke said. "We
played at Eastern on Friday, but my
heart's always been at Michigan. To
come back here was really very spe-
