Andrew nearly defeated the
Hoosiers single-handedly in Friday
night's 87-74 victory at Crisler, scor-
ing a career-high 36 points while
moving into the ninth spot on
Michigan's all-time scoring list.
Andrew scored most of her points on
uncontested shots in the paint, com-
ing off lob-assists from guard Jen
Nuanes (six assists) and Wooldridge
(four). It's not that Indiana didn't
have defenders on Andrew -on the
contrary, there were often two or
three Hoosiers playing her - but the
6-foot-2 Andrew towered above her
defenders, who lost between three
inches (5-foot-11 Dana Creighton)
and a foot (5-foot-2 Carrie Mount) to
"It was amazing some of the
passes they were giving me," the
ever-modest Andrew said. "The lob
pass is not a pass we would usually
throw. Players are usually a little bit
taller than that. I was matched-up
with shorter players, but I know all
my shots came from great assists."
Forward Nikki Beaudry, who had
10 points and two assists, agreed, but
put more emphasis on the height dif-
"When (the defenders) are just
sitting there, coming up to her
shoulder blades, it's easy to throw
those lobs," Beaudry said.
Michigan finally overcame its
difficulties with fullcourt pressure in
the victory. The Hoosiers pressed the
Wolverines into Assembly Hall's
floor, 85-39, in the teams' first
meetings, and looked ready to do the
same at Crisler, forcing 10 first-half
turnovers with a 1-2-1-1 trap. But
Michigan, which still led, 36-33, at
the break, adjusted in the locker
room and did not turn the ball over
once to Indiana's pressure in the
Indiana coach Jim Izard said the
Hoosiers had to give up some of
their pressing as Michigan built the
second half lead to as much as 13.
"Michigan forced us into more
man defense in the second half,"
Izard said. "We forced a lot of
turnovers with traps first half, but as
we fell behind, we had to go to more
The biggest surprise in the
Wolverines' spring break came Feb.
23 at Minnesota, when Michigan
swept the season series with a 67-65
decision. The Wolverines set the
tone with a game-opening 7-0 run,
and trailed for only one five minute
stretch in the middle of the first half.
Michigan led, 32-29, at the break
and never let the Golden Gophers so
much as tie the score in the second
stanza. Andrew powered the
Wolverine frontcourt with 27 points
and two blocks, while Nuanes had
13 points and a block of her own in
"We came out of the gates strong
and really played a good defensive
game," VanDeWege said.
Especially big on defense for
Michigan was Hall, who had 10 re-
bounds and held the Golden
Gophers' star forward, Dana Joubert,
to six points.
"(Hall's performance) was as big
a key to that game as anything,"
Two nights earlier, the
Wolverines were chased out of
Carver-Hawkeye Arena by Iowa, 81-
45. Michigan's last lead of the game
was 4-2 with less than 1:30 elapsed
in the first half and the streaking
Hawks led by as much as 38 in the
thrashing. It didn't help Michigan's
case that Beaudry, who picked up
four first-half fouls, fouled out with
more than 15 minutes remaining in
the game, and was soon followed by
Andrew, who had three in the first
half, and Hall, who lad two at the

The Buckeyes climbed back with

Michigan's Lanny Green (177)
and OSU's Kevin Randleman, both
All-Americans, wrestled to a draw,
the second time this month that the
two have ended a match in a 1-1
knot. The Buckeyes scored a techni-
cal fall at 190, and heavyweight Ray
Mendoza recorded two near falls
with a minute remaining to take the
lead in his match with Wolverine
Phil Tomek. Mendoza held on and
earned the necessary team points for
the Buckeyes as they squeaked by
Michigan by a one-point margin for
the second time this season.
"It's tough being ahead that much
and then lose," Michigan coach Dale
Bahr said. "The match was decided
at 158 and 167. Had we won (at 158,
the match) would have been over.
