will have three more receivers to
look at. Moeller is expecting big
contributions from incoming frosh
Amani Toomer and Mercury Hayes.
Also, former-starter Derrick Alex-

Another position which worried
Moeller in terms of depth was the
offensive line. However, Grbac is
optimistic about the line play in the

in well at tackle. We've got (Joe)

fill in that last tackle spot."

Pistons beat Knicks in yawner, 72-61

Competing in its first outdoor
tournament since last fall, the
Michigan women's soccer team cap-
tured the Indiana Big Red
Invitational at Bloomington this
In the championship game,
Michigan defeated Missouri, 3-2, in
a contest that had to be decided by'
penalty kicks. After regulation the
score was 1-1. Two five-minute,
sudden-death periods later, the count
The two Wolverine goals in the
shootout were scored by Michelle
'McQuaid and Lisa Ashton. But the
biggest goal of the tournament may
have been Jenny Steinhebel's corner
kick with a minute and a half re-
maining in the title game. Prior to
Steinhebel's tally, the Wolverines
were trailing the Tigers, 1-0. Her
goal gave Michigan the chance to
decide the outcome in extra minutes.
Michigan's semifinal victory
came against Indiana, the host team.
Against the Hoosiers, the Wolver-
ines exploded for five goals, and
goalie Lisa Bennett and the rest of
the defense held Indiana to two.
The Wolverines' first goal
against the Hoosiers came from
Alicia Stewart on an assist by
Steinhebel. The two were also re-
sponsible for Michigan's last goal,
which wrapped things up.
Michigan's offense got off to a
slow start in its opening game with
Purdue, but came around in the sec-
ond half to give it a 2-1 victory.
Shannon Loper jumpstarted the
Wolverine offense with her goal, and
Stewart came through with the
The defense for Michigan was
solid in its second game against
Ohio State, as it held the Buckeyes
scoreless in its 2-0 win. Defender
Kim Chenet complimented Ben-
"She did a great job in that game
and was outstanding in the shoot-
out," Chenet said.
Despite its perfect record at the
invitational, Chenet felt the Wol-
verines could have played better.
"We got off to a bit of a slow start,"
she said. "As the tournament prog-
ressed, we improved."
AUBURN HILLS, Mich. (AP) - Call it ter-
rible offense. Call it great defense.
Whatever you call it, since the 24-second clock
was installed in 1954, only once in NBA history
have two teams combined for fewer points than
Detroit and New York in the Pistons' 72-61 win
The only game using the clock to have fewer
points was a62-57 victory by Boston over Milwau-
kee on Feb. 27, 1955.
"I think what you saw were two of the best
defensive teams in theleague and we certainly have
the statistics to back it up," Detroit coach Chuck
Daly said. "Both teams had a very, very difficult
time scoring. You really had to work, you couldn't
get an open shot."
The Pistons and Knicks have allowed the few-
est points in the NBA this season.
Detroit shot only 38 percent and New York 30.7
percent from the floor. For the game, the Knicks
shot 23-for-75, while Detroit was 30-for-79.
The Knicks' total of 61 points was the lowest in
team history, breaking the mark of 68 set Feb. 26
against the Los Angeles Lakers. It also was the
third lowest total for any team in NBA history,
ahead of Milwaukee's 57 in the 1955 game and 59
by Sacramento against Charlotte on Jan. 10, 1991.
Detroit's lowest previous points allowed was
69 - vs. Houston in 1974 and Cincinnati in 1959.
New York, which leads the Atlantic Division,
went almost seven minutes without scoring at the
start of the second quarter. The Knicks scored just
10 points in the second quarter and 13 in the third,
while holding the Pistons to 10 in that period. The
combined 23 points tied the single third period low
set by Philadelphia and Houston on Feb. 2, 1975.
The Knicks' bench didn't score until the fourth
quarter and contributed only six points.
"It was a bizarre, bizarre game," Knicks coach
Pat Riley said. "At our end of the court especially."
"Both teams played flat-out defense the whole
game," Knicks guard Mark Jackson said. "We're
both very good defensive teams. It was a tough
defensive battle and we didn't take advantage of-
Joe Dumars scored 20 points to lead the Pistons.
He was the only player in the game with more than
Dennis Rodman had 13 points and 20 rebounds
for the Pistons, who have won five straight and are
47-32 with three games remaining in the regular
"It was a great game as far as our defense was
concerned," said Rodman, a defensive specialist
and the league's top rebounder. "It was the kind of
game where whoever hit the big shot or grabbed the
big rebound was going to win."
