Women cagers open
Michigan beats Iowa
in OT opener, 80-77

The race for the Big Ten women's
basketball title begins this weekend
at Crisler Arena. Michigan hosts
high-powered Purdue Friday eve-
ning, followed by a Sunday after-
noon match against Illinois.
Defending Big Ten champion
Purdue (8-2) comes to Ann Arbor
ranked No. 10 nationally. The Boil-
ermakers are led by senior guard
MaChelle Joseph, the only Big Ten
player to receive preseason all-
Among the conference leaders in
scoring average (22.1 per game),
field goal percentage, three-point
field goal attempts and percentage,
free throw percentage, and assists,
Joseph could pose the biggest indi-
vidual offensive threat of the season
for Michigan (4-5).
Western Kentucky's Kim Pehlke
and Boston College's Sarah Behn-
oth preseason all-Americas in their
own right - both scored in the mid-
20s against Michigan earlier this
season, although the Wolverines
won both games.
In each instance, the Wolverines
let the star player *get her points"
while concentrating their defensive
efforts on the rest of the opposing
Michigan head coach Bud Van-
DeWege plans to use a similar strat-
egy to contain Joseph's impact.
"She's such a proven scorer,"
VanDeWege said. "They're always
going to find ways to get her the
ball and she's going to get points.
What you can't do is let her get
away and keep them in the game by
herself. If she gets 20 or 22, then
that's fine if we win."
However, the Boilermakers have
another threat in first-year guard
Jennifer Jacoby, a two-time high
school all-American and Midwest
player of the year.
Jacoby is already among the lead-
ing 3-point threats in the Big Ten af-
ter only nine collegiate games.
"She's a player in the Joseph
mold," VanDeWege said. "She's a
good all-around guard, a great
scorer, and she handles the ball well
enough to run the point if they want
"She has the capability to do ev-
erything that MaChelle Joseph has
done at Purdue. She a talent, but
she's only a freshman, so we'll have
Sunday's match with the Illini
(3-6) should prove an interesting
change of pace for Michigan. While
Purdue likes to run the half-court
offense, Illinois uses its team speed
with an aggressive full-court pres-
Although the Illini lack a mar-
quee player like Joseph, they feature
guard Mandy Cunningham, last
year's Big Ten Freshman of the
Year. Cunningham has three-point
range and is a proven scorer..

This was the game where
Michigan's rookies were supposed
to find out how tough it is to play
on the road in the Big Ten.
But nobody told Jalen Rose. Or
at least, he didn't listen. Because he
went out and poured in a career-high
34 points, and made key free throws
down the stretch to help push
Michigan past Iowa, 80-77, in an
overtime win at Carver-Hawkeye
Arena last night.
Rose was held out of the starting
lineup against the Hawkeyes by
coach Steve Fisher for disciplinary
reasons, after Rose was late for a
"That was our plan," Fisher
joked after the game. "We wanted
to have Jalen sit the first three min-
utes, and then come off the bench so
they wouldn't know who he was."
They found out in a hurry. Rose's
3-pointer gave the Wolverines an
11-8 lead that they held until a run
keyed by a Val Barnes' trey put
Iowa ahead, 25-24.
Michigan clung to a 38-35 half-
time lead, despite being outre-
bounded by the Hawkeyes, 20-12.
Eleven of those rebounds came on
the offensive end as forward Chris
A Street and center Acie Earl ran wild.
"I told our guys that they would
AP PHOTO do that," Fisher said. "Wade
Lookingbill did that to Terry Mills
and Loy Vaught two years ago. And
they're in the NBA now. We need to
sneak someone into their practice to
see how Tom Davis gets those guys
to do that."
Michigan tied the game at 71 on a
Chris Webber tip-in and then took
the lead when Rose hit a pull-up
jumper in the lane with 27 seconds
left. But Iowa's Acie Earl scored on
a turnaround in the lane with four
seconds left, sending the game into
overtime for the third time in the
last four meetings at Iowa City.
Michigan went up 78-73 when
Rose converted a three-point play,
but watched Iowa claw back to 78-

VanDeWege must rely
on strength of bench

The Michigan women's basketball team is
suffering from an early-season rash of injuries.
First came sophomore forward LaTara Jones'
dislocated kneecap during the preseason. Jones
finally saw action in a 67-62 loss to Washington
Dec. 27, but played for only one minute and did
Next came -sophomore forward- Michelle
Hall's broken foot. She has been out since Dec. 6
*and will be out indefinitely.
Then junior guard Jen Nuanes, second on the
team in scoring with 14.8 points per game, hit
the backboard stanchion Dec. 12 and injured her
neck. She also returned against the Huskies, play-
ing 37 minutes and scoring nine points. Nuanes
then scored 15 points in the Wolverines' upset
of then-No. 11 Western Kentucky, 77-73.
After Michigan's 67-58 victory over Indiana
State Dec. 21, Wolverine coach Bud Van-
DeWege said the bench players should be
"excited about the opportunity" presented by
the injuries. Junior forward Nikki Beaudry,
who moved into the starting lineup against
Notre Dame game Dec. 13, is one of these play-
VanDeWege said she has "responded beauti-
fully" to her starting role. Beaudry is third in
scoring with 12.6 points per game and her 48.8%
field-goal percentage is fourth.
STRIKE UP THE BAND: The Michigan pep
band, which plays at Crisler during men's bas-
ketball games, does not perform during
women's games. However, there is always music
to be heard.
Usually, the Crisler sound system blasts
taped renditions of "The Victors" and "Let's
Go Blue," but sometimes there are live perfor-
At Dec. 17's 74-72 loss to Pitt, all in atten-
dance were treated to the sounds of Morris
Lawrence and the Afromusicology Ensemble.
Lawrence's six-piece jazz band has become
somewhat of a regular at women's basketball
games since being contacted by the Michigan
Athletic Promotions Department three years
"I just like playing here," Lawrence said.
Then at the Indiana State game Dec. 21, a pep
band from Detroit Catholic Central decked out
in "Blue Crew" T-shirts performed at both the
women's game and the men's afternoon match
Also at the Indiana State game, junior for-
ward Sherell Stanley played the National An-
them on her saxophone.

A successful preseason has
brought nothing but high expecta-
tions for the Michigan men's vol-
leyball team. However, a rash of
player losses has left the team in
disarray as it heads to Western
Michigan this Sunday for its regular
season opener against the Broncos.
* Two players who have not regis-
tered for classes will not be with
the team this term. Senior co-captain
Keith Baar has a sprained ankle, as
does senior Jack Behar and junior
Steve Arellano. Senior Michael
McCune has been having problems
with his shoulder but expects to
play this weekend. Baar and Behar
also expect to play.
"People are going to have to pick
. p the slack," Arellano said. "We
have good backup players. They just
aren't game proven yet."
Arellano's ankle sprain is
Michigan's most serious setback. He
injured it last Sunday at an Eastern
Michigan recreational tournament
when he came down on top of an-
other player's foot on a tight set. He
is currently in a cast and will not
play this weekend. His status will
'be determined at a Wednesday
"I'll be fine," Arellano said. "I
mean, I don't have any broken bones,
so unless they tell me that there is
no way I should play on it, I'll be
While Arellano is out, the team
will probably have co-captain Rico
Latham move from his outside hit-
ting position against Western.
"I'm not sure how strong West-
ern is," Michigan coach Tom Johen-
gen said. "In the past, they haven't
been that strong, so I'm kind of
looking at this as a match to get
back into rhythm and get some com-
petition under our belts before we
face two very strong teams in
Michigan State and Wisconsin (next
"This is, in my mind, a warm-up
match - a match to help people get
back into the groove and get lineup
stuff worked out."
Although the Wolverines are
ailing, Latham doesn't think the
team will have a let down against
"We can't overlook Western,"
Latham said. "We've got to go out
there and play and grow and bond
and win. This is the regular season
now, and they all count from here
on out. We want to sweep the state
of Michigan, and beating Western is
the first step."
Latham and his teammates agreed
that the adversity would help them
become a better team in the long
run. While the injuries and loss of
personnel may have an impact on the
team's final record, the team's goals
will not change.
"We want to play like a team,
win, and have fun," Arellano said.
"We need to have the attitude that
if we lose it is not the end of life. I
would like to see us go out, play
hard and be really, really happy if
we win, but not get down on our-
selves when we lose."
