FISHER, BOYD SHARE THE COURT AGAIN
Reunited, and it feels so good

by Albert Lin
Daily Basketball Writer
It will be a reunion of sorts to-
morrow when Michigan travels to
Ohio to meet longtime Wolverine
assistant Mike Boyd's Cleveland
State Vikings.
The 7:30 p.m. tipoff will chris-
ten CSU's new Convocation Centre.
The matchup is sold out.
"It'll be a nice ball game,"
Michigan coach Steve Fisher said.
"It's a great way for them to break
in their new facility. They've got a
big crowd, and a Michigan coming
in. ... We're glad to be the first to
do it."
Fisher said he is unsure what his
lineup will be when the Wolverines
take the floor. Forward James
Voskuil is ready to play, but
whether he will be out for the open-
ing tap remains to be seen. In addi-
tion, Fisher said he would like to
start Eric Riley in front of his
hometown crowd, but that he
would still have to earn his spot.
Cleveland State's program has
been on the rise since the hiring of
Daly Boyd, then considered one of the top
assistant coaches in the country,
Sept. 19, 1990.

The Vikings had been on proba-
tion the three previous seasons,
stemming from numerous infrac-
tions committed during former
coach Kevin Mackey's regime. On
top of that, Mackey was arrested
outside of a crack house during July
1990. The decision to let him go was
made 10 days later. A national
search began, and in little more than
a month, the Vikings hired Boyd.
"He came in one week before
school started," Cleveland State
sports information director Merle
Levin said. "He had little time to
meet his players.
"He started from scratch, I
guess, about as scratchy as you can
start."
Because the team was coming off
probation last year, many of the
players were newcomers who either
had been Prop 48, were transfers, or
had been redshirted. The Vikings
stumbled to a 12-16 record, but they
have high hopes for an improvement
this year. Thus far, CSU has beaten
Bowling Green and Southeast
Missouri State while falling to
Missouri-Kansas City and Cincin-
nati. The last three games were part

of a grueling six-day road trip.
Point guard Gravelle Craig and
center Shawn Fergus lead the
Vikings. The 5-foot-7 Craig has av-
eraged 8.5 points and 6.8 assists in
CSU's four games. Fergus, a seven-
footer, averages 12 points but only

Wolverines committed 34 turno-
vers in that contest, continuing a
trend that started in the preseason.
Taking better care of the ball is'
Fisher's main emphasis.
The coach also stressed defense
during yesterday's film session. He
expressed concern about Cleveland
State's quickness.
"We're trying to show (the
players) things they're not doing.
We're working on form and tech-
nique a bit," Fisher said. "We have
to teach them that when the ball is
on the side to keep it there, with
your inside foot up, and when they
fake us, not to show them the drib-
ble-drive to the middle.
Senior guard Kirk Taylor missed
practice yesterday to catch up on
schoolwork, and Fisher said he may
not even travel with the team this
weekend.
Sophomore Jason Bossard is hav-
ing arm problems. Bossard has a pin
in his right elbow from a previous
injury, and according to Fisher the:
pin rubs a nerve every time Bossard
bends his arm. Bossard said that he is
going to need surgery to remove the
pin and correct the problem.

Boyd
four rebounds a contest.
The Wolverines should have no
problem exploiting the much
smaller Vikings. Fergus is the only
player on the roster taller than 6-
foot-8.
Michigan is coming off a sloppy
100-74 victory at Detroit Monday
night in its season opener. The

Michigan rookie Jimmy King stuffs one through for the Wolverines in a
Nov. 21 victory over Athletes In Action at The Palace of Auburn Hills.

Emtman
bests
Skrep for
Lombardi
by Phil Green
Daily Football Writer
Senior Wolverine tackle Greg
Skrepenak came away empty in his
quest to be honored as college foot-
ball's best .lineman. Defensive
tackle Steve Emtman from
Washington won the Lombardi
Award last night in Houston.
Skrepenak had been one of four
finalists, along with Emtman,
Florida State's Marvin Jones, and
Baylor's Santana Dotson.
"All I can do is wonder. I don't
consider myself a loser in any way,"
Skrepenak said from Houston. "I
look at it that I was the only
offensive player down here.
"Steve is a very deserving player
of the award."
Yesterday was not a total wash
for Skrepenak, though. He was
named to the 1991 Associated Press
All-America first team.
Wideout Desmond Howard joins
Skrepenak on the squad as the only
Wolverines named.
Skrepenak remains in the running
for the Outland Trophy, given
annually to college football's best
interior lineman.
"Anything can happen, but I
think Steve's going to win that
award, too," Skrepenak said. "I'm
happy to be a finalist for both
awards."
Howard will be going to
Cincinnati today to possibly pick up
the Maxwell Award, given an-
nually to college football's player
of the year. The presentation of the
Maxwell and Outland Awards will
be televised tomorrow at 5 p.m. on
ABC after the Army-Navy game.
Although not named to the As-
*sociated Press All-America team,
Wolverine linebacker Erick Ander-
son remains one of three finalists
for the Butkus Award, for the.na-
tion's best linebacker which will be
awarded in Orlando tomorrow.

Women cagers face Toledo test

by Ken Davidoff
Daily Basketball Writer
A rivalry between two entities
is guaranteed to increase the interest
level of the contest at hand.
Whether it's George Bush and Sad-
dam Hussein, or Sylvester and
Tweety, people choose sides, and the
intensity of the competition goes up
a notch.
Although it already has its share
of these feuds, the Michigan
women's basketball team will fur-
ther develop a similar rapport with
Toledo when it visits the Rockets
tomorrow night.
"They're a good team," Michi-
gan coach Bud VanDeWege said of
the Rockets (4-0). "It's a good mini-
rivalry. They're a nice preseason op-
ponent. It's nice to have a team of
such quality this close."
"Michigan is always a big game
for us," Toledo coach Bill Fennelly
said. "In northwestern Ohio, as
many people root for Michigan as
for Ohio State. We have a few play-
ers from Michigan on our team, and
we recruit there. We have trouble
getting Big Ten teams to play us.
It's to Bud's credit that he does."
In last year's contest in Ann Ar-
bor, Michigan forward LaTara Jones
hit two last-minute free throws to
give the Wolverines (1-1) a 75-74
victory. Since both squads are re-
turning the majority of their
starters, the game is expected to be
another tough battle.
Toledo's strength is its back
court. Senior guard Jane Roman

leads the squad with 11 points per
game. However, the front court
lacks height and experience, leaving
Fennelly anxious about the trouble
Michigan center Trish Andrew
might present.
"I'm very concerned about our
size," Fennelly said. "Trish An-
drew is the best post player we'll
face, offensively or defensively. We
have a small team, and it worries
me. Typical Big Ten play - physi-
cal, aggressive - is not our
strength. We can't let them muscle
us to death."
Toledo's other starters are guard
Dana Drew, center Karen Sekulski,
forward Kim Bradley, and forward
Lucretia LeGault.
Michigan is coming off a dra-
matic 91-90 loss to Central Michi-
gan in which guard Jen Nuanes and
Andrew each missed game-winning
shots as time ran out. Despite the
defeat, VanDeWege is not planning
many alterations in his game plan.
"We have a good thing going,"
he said. "If Jen's shot is one inch
different, we win the game. We'll
learn from our mistakes, but there
won't be any changes." He did note
it was essential for forward
Michelle Hall to stay out of foul
trouble, which she could not avoid
against the Chippewas.
The Rockets are coming off a sea-
son in which they reached the second
round of the NCAA tournament.
Add to that the revenge factor, and
VanDeWege has plenty of reason to
be concerned.

"There's a definite favorite in
this game; this would be an upset
win for us," he said. "We can't af-
ford to have bad stretches like we
did against Central Michigan. But
we're going down there knowing we
can win."
In addition to Andrew, Nuanes,
and Hall, VanDeWege also expects,
major contributions from his other
two starters, senior guard Char Du-
rand and first-year guard Carrie
Stewart. Stewart, who started in the
Wolverines' opener against Boston
College, became the first rookie to
start her initial Michigan game
since Carol Szczechowski in De-
cember 1987.
"She gives us a whole new offen-
sive dimension," VanDeWege said.
As much as Stewart's play im-
proves the team, Michigan's fortune
still lays mostly upon the shoul-
ders of Andrew, who has gathered
praise from all corners.
"I don't know how you can stop
her," Central Michigan coach
Donita Davenport said after Tuesday
night's match. "How do you stop a
6-foot-2 kid that can shoot from 17
feet with You in her face?"
"Trish is fabulous," Van-
DeWege said. "She's gonna have a
great year. If she gets good scoring
around her, she'll be among the lead-
ing scorers in the Big Ten this year."
The Wolverines continue their
Mid-American Conference road
swing with a game at Bowling
Green Tuesday night.

Women tankers grab lead

by Rich Mitvalsky
Daily Sports Writer
Double victors Nicole William-
son and Alecia Humphrey spear-
headed the Michigan women's swim
team's attack last night against
Brigham Young University, paving
the way tto a 65-45 Wolverine
advantage after the first session in
the three-day meet.
The Cougars quickly jumped out
to a lead, winning the 200-yard
freestyle relay in 1:37.89. Michigan
immediately countered, capturing
first, second, and fourth place in the
500-yard freestyle, highlighted by
Williamson's winning time of
4:58.63.
"I was very happy with my
times tonight," Williamson said.

"The 500 especially was a good time
for me. I was also happy with my
split in the relay."
Williamson, a sophomore, an-
chored the 400-yard medley relay
with a :52.1 split on the freestyle
leg, as she caught from behind and
out-touched the Cougar contingent
by two-tenths of a second, 3:54.68
to 3:54.89. Teaming with Wil-
liamson were frosh sensation
Humphrey, sophomore breaststro-
ker Val Hyduk, and junior butter-
flier Claudia Viera.
Humphrey claimed her individ-
ual victory in the 200-yard individ-
ual medley with a time of 2:07.05.
Junior Mindy Gehrs placed third,
just behind Cougar world-class
breaststroker Hiroko Nagasaki.
