behind Rawls bros.

'M'

cagers outrun

Detroit, 100-74

by Shawn DuFresne
Daily Sports Writer
Considering the busy itinerary
the Michigan wrestling team had
this weekend, Wolverine coach Dale
Bahr was pleased with his team's
21-15 victory over Lehigh Sunday in
Bethlehem, Penn.
"Our team endured a hectic
schedule," Bahr said, "flying in Sat-
urday, rushing to the arena Sunday,
and catching the plane immediately
after the match."
The Wolverines made the most
of their short stay after spotting the
Engineers a 6-0 lead on a Spanky Jor-
dan pin of Michigan's Dan Lee-
master in the 118-pound class.
Michigan captured the next three
matches to take the lead, 10-6. Jason
Cluff's (126) major decision of Le-
high's Tom Koch, 10-1, started the
rally. Then Michigan all-American
Joey Gilbert (134) responded in
similar fashion by defeating John
McCumber, 11-5, while junior
James Rawls (142) decisioned Chris
O'Byme,10-4.
Wolverine Brian Harper (150)
lost a heartbreaker to Lehigh's Steve
Cassidy, 6-5, as the Engineers closed
the gap on Michigan,10-9.
But Michigan's Sean Bormet
(158) responded by defeating Engi-
neer Brian Cipollone in a 13-2 major

decision, to give the Wolverines a
five-point margin.
Then came the most exciting
match of the day at 167. It pitted
Michigan newcomer Jesse Rawls,
Jr., who finished second at junior na-
tionals last year, with the junior na-
tional champion, Rick Hepp.
Rawls, the younger brother of
James, fell behind 9-4 at one point in
the match, but roared back to win,
13-12.
"Jesse hung in when he was be-
hind, and did an excellent job com-
ing back," Bahr said. "He is 10-2
now, which is impressive for a true
rookie."
Michigan all-American Lanny
Green (177) was upset by Solomon
Fleckman, 6-5, but Wolverine Jehad
Hamden (190) increased Michigan's
lead by trouncing Antholy Silim-
peri,16-3.
Michigan heavyweight Phil
Tomek fell to Lehigh's John Mor-
ris, 3-1, but it was too late for the
Engineers.
"The score could have been 30-9,
but they won more matches than we
expected," Bahr said.
The Wolverines head to the Las
Vegas Classic this weekend, which
is a "mini-NCAA tournament," ac-
cording to Bahr.

DETROIT - In last night's sea-
son opener against the University of
Detroit at Cobo Hall, the Michigan
basketball team showed flashes of
"wow" and "whoa" en route to a
100-74 victory.t
"I'd like to get longer stretchesi
of 'wow' and slow down on thet
'whoa,'" Michigan coach Steve
Fisher said.
The Wolverines exhibited strong
offensive ability that showed up inI
spurts throughout the game. But ont
the 'whoa' side, the team also com-
mitted 34 turnovers.
"We've got to work to eliminatet
careless and casual turnovers that
we create for ourself," Fisher said.
"We had 15 or 20 that we did all on
our own."
Frosh Chris Webber stole thel
show offensively scoring 19 points,I
while pulling down 17 rebounds asl
well.
"No matter how it looked, I'll
take the win in the win column,"
Webber said. "We have a lot to im-
prove on and we will improve by
next game."
Webber did hit some rough
stretches, though. Near the end of
the first half, the Cobo crowd -
familiar with Webber's exploits
and his Detroit roots - shouted,
"Air ball," as he stood on the free-
throw line. Webber missed both
shots, airballing the second.
Jalen Rose, also a Detroit recruit,
enjoyed the trip back to the city.
"As a whole, I think we were
nervous," Rose said. "But then it
started to feel like we were at home
again. Coming back home means a
lot."
Detroit coach Ricky Byrdsong
felt the game slipped away from his
Titans.
"We just couldn't shoot it,"
Byrdsong said. "We forced a number
of turnovers and if we could have
capitalized on the offensive end, it
would have been a whole lot better
of a ballgame."
Michigan's first-year players
contributed noticeably to the team's

offensive output. Rose scored 16,
while Jimmy King and Juwan How-
ard each added 15.
Though the game finished with a
28 point margin of victory, the
Titans pulled within seven midway
through the second half. But Mich-
igan took charge, showcasing its up-
tempo game, outscoring the Titans
30-16 in the last ten minutes.
"We have to get used to playing
with each other," Michigan guard
Michael Talley said. "It's good for
the younger guys to get experience.
We're learning to work together.
We have to improve on our turn-
overs and our defense."
James Voskuil, who had been
starting for the Wolverines at for-
ward, sat out last night's game with
a knee injury he suffered in practice.
However, Voskuil said he expects
to be back and ready to play when
Michigan travels to play Cleveland
State Saturday.

Women's basketball seeks revenge against CMU

by Ken Davidoff
Daily Basketball Writer
Ah, if only the world were per-
fect. Peace would reign. Prince
would stop trying to make movies.
And the Michigan women's basket-
ball team would have plenty of
time to bask in the glory of its 86-
67 shellacking of Boston College.
Unfortunately, such is not the
case. Global warfare continues, the
Purple One is probably penning a
screenplay as we speak, and the
Wolverines (1-0) have to start wor-
rying about tonight's game at Cen-
tral Michigan.
"I talked with them in the
locker room about it," Michigan
coach Bud VanDeWege said. "This is
a long first stretch. We don't have
time to celebrate wins or worry
about losses. When this stretch is
over, we can look back and reflect."
Central Michigan (3-0) has just
as much to be proud of as the
Bowl Griddes!
It's time you
did something
for you.
Turn in your Griddes picks by
December 13 at the Student Public-
ations Building at 420 Maynard St.

Wolverines. The Chippewas are
coming off a sweep of their Com-
fort Inn/Chippewa Classic, defeat-
ing Illinois-Chicago, 70-62, and
Xavier, 90-73.
Junior forward Carla Sterk was
named Most Valuable Player of the
'They beat us on our
floor, now we want to
go up there and return
it'
- Bud VanDeWege
'M' basketball coach
tournament, tallying 33 points and
22 rebounds. CMU also received
contributions from junior guard
Carrie Isanhart, junior forward Car-
lotta Craven, and sophomore for-
ward Nikki Thompkins, and a total
of six players scored in double
figures in the championship contest
against Xavier.

"We don't have too many weak-
nesses at this point," CMU coach
Donita Davenport said. "We've done
well in all phases of the game."
Last year, Central Michigan
came down to Ann Arbor and easily
defeated the Wolverines, 64-48.
VanDeWege feels that his players
haven't forgotten this.
"There's basically the same peo-
ple returning from both teams," he
said. "They beat us on our floor,
now we want to go up there and re-
turn it. It's not the prime motiva-
tor, but it's part of it."
After being held to such a low
point total in the previous meeting,
the squad realizes its offense is the
key to its success.
"Their defense gave us problems
last year," VanDeWege said. "We
need to come out and make things
happen."
As always, the intrastate rivalry
comes into play when these teams

meet. "It's a good rivalry, not only
on the floor, but with recruiting,"
Davenport said. "It's the kind of
game, that when the ball goes up,
you can forget about the records and
forget about who's supposed to
win."
"I think it comes into play more
for them," VanDeWege said. "They
want to beat Michigan. It's an extra
motivator, and it's something we
have to be concerned about."
Michigan is led by sophomore
center Michelle Hall, and junior
forward Trish Andrew, who scored
27 points Sunday. The Wolverines
lead the all-time series, 10-7. They
continue their road swing this Sat-
urday against Toledo.
