* Gophers,

by Adam Miller
daily Basketball Writer
After a weekend road trip la-
beled "embarrassing" by coach Bud
VanDeWege, the Michigan women's
basketball team (0-4 in the Big Ten,
4-9 overall) returns home to Crisler
Arena looking for respect in games
against Minnesota (1-2, 6-6) 7:30
tbnight and Iowa (3-0, 12-1) noon
Sunday.
At first glance, it appears that
the Golden Gophers, tied with
Illinois for seventh in the Big Ten,
slould give Michigan an opportu-
nity to earn some credibility. But
appearances can be deceiving. Min-
nesota's 6-foot-2 forward Carol
Ann Shudlick, leads the Big Ten in'
scoring with 23.8 points a game, and
was last week's Big Ten women's
basketball Player of the Week.
"We're going to have to make
sere she doesn't get the opportunity
tp be in good scoring position. We
Dave to make everything she tries to
coo tough," VanDeWege said.
However, VanDeWege cautioned
that Minnesota is more than just a
one-player show.
" This is a much improved Min-
nesota team, there isn't any ques-
tion," VanDeWege said. "The level
of play of some of the other people
in the program has picked up."
Then there's Iowa. No. 5 in the
nation. No. 1 in the Big Ten. 17-2
all-timne against Michigan. Winner
of both meetings between the
squads last year.
* In addition, the game is being
telecast live on Sportschannel
Chicago - a rare TV appearance for
Michigan women's basketball.
The Hawkeyes also feature a
powerful scorer in 6-foot-1 forward
Toni Foster. She averages 15.1
points and 8.8 rebounds per game.
"You handle her like any tough
post-player," VanDeWege said.
"You just can't let her get the ball
close to the basket."
Despite the long odds, Van-
beWege does not count Michigan
out of Sunday's contest.
"It's a no-lose situation," he
said. "It's the type of game that at
the end of the year [if Michigan
veins], everybody can look back and
say, 'Hey, they pulled off the
biggest upset of the year."''

ICERS SHAKE, RATTLE, AND ROLL TO OLUMBUS
'M' faces last-place Bucks

by Rod Loewenthal
Daily Hockey Writer
The all shook-up Michigan
hockey team will be twisting and
turning its way down to Columbus
tonight in the first game of a home-
and-home weekend series with the
CCHA cellar-dwelling Buckeyes (3-
13-3, 6-13-3).
After a relatively flat perfor-
mance last weekend against the UIC
Flames in Chicago, Michigan coach
Red Berenson decided this week in
practice to put last year's high scor-
ing line of Mark Ouimet, David
Roberts and Denny Felsner back to-
gether for Michigan (10-4-3 in the
Central Collegiate Hockey
Association, 16-4-3 overall).
"We're still looking for our best
team," Berenson said. "We went
five periods with Chicago and only
scored one goal. It shows that we
have to shake things up."
With the departure of Felsner
from their line, sophomores David
Oliver and Brian Wiseman will be
reunited with their playing partner
from last year, fellow sophomore
Cam Stewart.
"I'm hoping that Wiseman's line
can be a strong one for us," Beren-
son added, noting the emergence of

that line toward the end of last sea-
son. "When things get stale you
have to change. If we're going to
take a run at Lake Superior, then
we're going to need to get our game
in order."
Dan Stiver, whose status was un-
known after missing the second
game of last weekend's series with a
strained knee ligament, will return to
the Michigan lineup this weekend to
center a new line with senior Ted
Kramer and rookie Rick Willis.
The "Mike" line, so named be-
cause each player's first name is
Mike, remains unchanged with Mike
Stone centering first-year Mike
Knuble and senior Mike Helber.
Travelling to Columbus against a
last-place Buckeye team, the Wol-
verines find themselves in a similar
position to last weekend when they
arrived as favorites in Chicago to
face the Flames. Against UIC, Ber-
enson thought his squad was slug-
gish because it did not anticipate
such a heated Flames assault.
This weekend Michigan team
captain David Harlock expects more
from his teammates. "We've had a
good week of practice," the junior
defenseman said. "Last week, we

might have thought we were pre-
pared, but obviously we weren't.
Going down to Columbus, I feel
we're not only prepared physically
but emotionally and mentally as
well."
Added to the Wolverines' emo-
tional preparation were comments
made by Ohio State coach Jerry
Welsh after the Buckeyes' 9-3 drub-
bing by Michigan last November.
"He (Welsh) left the ice saying
that we weren't a great team, just a
good team," Berenson said. "I've
mentioned that to the team all week
in practice."
"Obviously, we haven't proven
to them that we're a bona fide con-
tender," Harlock added.
Welsh is not agonizing over his
team's task this weekend. "We're
trying to tell our team that they're
beatable," Welsh said. "We're not
worried about any individual (Mich-
igan) players, because in the past
we've done well against Michigan's
premier players."
Berenson mentioned when
pressed that it was "likely that
(Steve) Shields would start" in goal
for tonight's game.

Conference matchups highlight weekend swimming meets

-- % Lt _L

by Rich Mitvalsky
Daily Sports Writer
With only three weeks remaining
in the Big Ten dual season, the
Michigan women's swimming team
will carry an unblemished conference
record into Columbus this weekend
to battle Ohio State.
The Wolverines (5-0 in the Big
Ten, 6-2 overall) are aiming to
extend their string of consecutive
conference titles to six at the Big
Ten Championships in Indianapolis
next month.
The Wolverines, who suffered
their only losses this season to
perennial powerhouses UCLA and
USC during the holiday break, hope
to extend their three-meet winning
streak against the Buckeyes, dating
back to 1986.
Led by last year's four-event con-
ference champion sophomore Holly
Humphrey, Ohio State returns seven
of eight NCAA qualifiers from one
year ago. Last year's Buckeye squad
finished fifth in the Big Ten, and
placed 12th nationally. Michigan
successfully defended its conference
title, but a subpar performance at
Nationals left the Wolverines 15th.
Michigan coach Jim Richardson
said he believes that this meet - as

well as the Big Tens - may be ex-
tremely close.
"(Ohio State) returns the fastest
100 and 200 flier this year and re-
cruited the U.S. long course national
champ in the breaststroke,"
Richardson said.
Because he holds high respect for
Ohio State and its swimming pro-
gram, Richardson said he is anxious
to renew this particular series.
"Two years ago we were snowed
out of this meet, and any Ohio
State-Michigan rivalry - I don't
care if it's in tiddlywinks - is a
great rivalry," he said. "They are the
ones who set the precedent for fast
swimming in this conference. They
won five (Big Ten titles) in a row
before we won our five in a row."
While most college dual meets
include the diving events, this
matchup will not. Ohio State's
divers have suffered a rash of in-
juries, and the teams agreed to
scratch diving competition at the
meet.

of an individual rivalry , Michigan's
Eric Bailey said.
"We have a pretty good rivalry,"
Bailey said. "But, it is not what you
think. It isbecauseso many of the
swimmers know each other individ-
ually and the schools recruit from
the same talent base."
The meet is Michigan's final
dual competition before the Big Ten
Championships, Feb. 6-8 in
Minneapolis, and the Wolverines
are well aware of this fact.
Sixteen swimmers will accom-

pany coach Jon Urbanchek's squad
when it head to the conference
championships. Even so, he is look-
ing for more from them tonight.
"It is the last chance to make the
cut for the Big Tens," Urbanchek
said. "We want to give everyone a
chance to qualify. We are also trying
to swim fast, because we are trying

igan swimmer and current world

After only one year on this campus, Theta Xi has become the
fastest growing fraternity in the area. We are still new and we are
still growing strong with a diverse group of close brothers. We
have become one of the strongest national Theta Xi chapters.
Theta Xi's 81 members each take an active role in the
fraternity. With a schedule full of IM sports, social events,
philantropy events, and Cactus Jack's Friend's Parties, we still

annual sleigh-ride, mechanical bull party, friend's parties,
whirly-ball, and all topped off when we move back into our
mansion on Washtenaw with an Otis Day toga party. We will also
participate in building houses for the homeless with "Habitat for
the Humanities." With all of these events scheduled around our
successful IM sports teams and Greek Week, Theta Xi is
committed to excellence, brotherhood, and leadership.
