Two new hirings
Lowry adds spice to women's basketball staff

_ w

by Ryan Herrington
Daily Sports Writer
Although basketball season may
seem a little far away, the Michigan
woman's basketball team has been
busy preparing for their winter
campaign. Among the preparations
was the naming of former Ohio
State all-American Nikita Lowry as
an assistant coach.
Wolverine coach Bud Van-
DeWege and associate athletic direc-
tor Peggy Bradley-Doppes made the
formal announcement in late Au-
gust.
"(Lowry) is truly one of the
great names in woman's basketball
nationally in the last decade," Van-
DeWege said. "It is a thrill to have
someone of her caliber working
within the Michigan program."
Lowry's statistics back up such
high praise. In addition to her all-
American status during her senior
season in 1989, she was a two-time
all-Big Ten selection, leading the
conference in scoring in 1988 and
1989. She is fourth on the Buckeyes'
career scoring list and helped lead
Ohio State to three conference
championships.
Lowry's experience also spans
the international arena as she was a
member of the 1989 ABA/USA Na-
tional Team and participated in the
1989 World University Games. She
also played professionally in Bari,
Italy, for a year.
"She brings so much from so

many different areas that she will
have an immediate impact," Van-
DeWege said.
VanDeWege believes that
Lowry's on-court experience can be
transformed into valuable lessons
for the Wolverines' frontcourt and
inside game, specifically at the low-
post position.
Lowry also will aid VanDeWege
in recruiting within the state.
Lowry is from Detroit and earned
all-metro honors during her high
school career at Cass Technical High
School.
Lowry replaces Debbie Norman,
who resigned in June to accept an as-
sistant coaching position at South-
west Texas State University.

As administrative assistant,
Beavers will directly assist Associ-
ate Athletic Director Peggy
Bradley-Doppes with day-to-day and
long-range planning for the
Wolverine women's athletics.
One of Beavers' main objectives
will be to create more awareness for
the ten-sport women's athletic pro-
gram.
"I want to let the community
know that the women's sports pro-
gram is exciting and we have quality
athletes and we want people to
come out and support us," she said.
"It is important to me to establish a
strong fan base for all sports."
Alumni relations and fund-rais-
ing, as well as monitoring the new
NCAA 20-hour practice/play rule,
are some of Beavers' new responsi-
bilities.
Due to the number of different
sports Michigan participates in,
keeping an eye on all teams to ensure
the rule is not violated will not be
easy.
"I have not established a set sys-
tem yet," she said. "My plan is to
have the coaches turn in their hours
and check on it periodically."
When it comes to alumni rela-
tions, Beavers says her slogan for
the year is "friends, not funds."
"We want to be able to know
that we have made good relation-
ships with our alumni," she said.
One particular alumni event that
she has in mind is a luncheon series.
The once-a-month, weekday lun-
cheon will feature a coach speaking
about the current status of his or her
sport and would take place at the
Michigan League. While the lun-
cheons will be labeled as alumni
events, they will be open to every-
one.
Beavers is also involved in the
planning for the commemoration of
the 10-year anniversary of women's
sports in the Big Ten. The event will
bring back former Michigan letter-
winners to honor them and celebrate
their accomplishments.
Formerly an administrative as-
sistant with the University of De-
troit-Mercy Athletic Department,
Beavers graduated from Michigan in
1986 with a Bachelor of Arts degree
in communication.
Beavers said she is excited about
her new position, especially work-
ing with Bradley-Doppes.
"Peggy is very focused with the
department and what she wants to
get done," she said. "I believe she
will get it done 100 percent."
