Union for

The Athletic Ticket Office's sale
of 1992-93 student season hockey
tickets went off without a hitch yes-
terday in the Michigan Union. The
ticket office sold approximately
1,000 of the 1,200 ticket packages
between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. in the
Pendleton Room.
Last year's sale of tickets was
quite an unorganized event as there
were no structured lines and students
involved ended up in a scrum-like
group in the Union basement.
"We were not really prepared for
what happened last year," assistant
ticket manager Brian Klemz admit-
ted. "Two years ago we sold 200
season tickets. Last year, we sold
over 1,200. It was down in the MUG
and there was no anticipation."
Yesterday's sale was a far cry
from the chaos of last year. The line
began at the north entrance of the
Union, wound up the stairs and
slinked its way around tables set up
in the Pendleton Room. "We had a
little more space. to work with,"
Klemz said.
The overwhelming demand coin-
cides with Michigan's hockey re-
naissance. The past two seasons, the
Wolverines have qualified for the
NCAA tournament and have estab-
lished themselves among the Central
Collegiate Hockey Association's
(CCHA) elite. Last year, the Maize
and Blue captured their first-ever
CCHA title and also reached the
NCAA Final Four. This season,
Michigan coach Red Berenson's
squad returns several key players
and welcomes a promising freshman
Many students camped out
overnight in hopes of getting good
seats for this year's edition of
Wolverine pucksters.
* "We got there at 10 p.m. and
were already 13th in line," said
Steve Malecki, a junior in the School
of Engineering. "We needed 15
tickets, so some friends and I did it
in shifts. Once the doors opened, the
line went pretty fast."
"A group of us got there at 2:30
a.m.," senior kinesiology concentra-
tor Jen Miriani said. "We were num-
ber 240 and were out of there by
8:15. It was a good setup and it
worked out really well."
There were 1,000 tickets sold in
all yesterday. The remaining 200
season seats will go on sale at the
Athletic Ticket Office this week and
next. The new extended hours of the
office are Monday through Friday 8
a.m.-5:30 p.m.

Trio awaits NCAA ruling
'M' declares Webber, Rose, Riley ineligible for now

by Andy De Korte
Daily Basketball Writer
As a result of paid appearances at
a fund-raising event in Holland,
Mich., and alleged illegal visits to
various basketball camps throughout
the summer, the Michigan athletic
department has declared three
members of its men's basketball
team ineligible for the upcoming
However, Michigan officials are
hopeful that sophomores Chris
Webber and Jalen Rose, and senior
Eric Riley will have their eligibility
restored by the NCAA before the
season opener against Rice Dec. 1.
Michigan declared the three
players ineligible, according to
assistant athletic director Bruce
Madej, in a report submitted to the
NCAA last week. While the report
does not belie the possible severity
of the situation, it does not reveal
anything that Wolverine fans should
fear at this point.
It is uncertain what punishment,
if any, the NCAA will give out to
the program. The possible outcomes
ranges from acquittal to a loss of
eligibility for an extended portion of
the season if the NCAA decides
major violations have occurred.
The athletic department has no
comment at this stage, but a self-
investigation preceded this report.
In situations in which impro-
prieties may have occurred, it is to
the benefit of the university to sus-

pend the relevant parties in a show
of cooperation with the NCAA.
The action also serves to protect
the program. Had the athletic de-
partment failed to take this step,
whichever games Webber, Rose and
Riley competed in would be auto-
matically forfeited if the NCAA later
ruled suspension was in order.
The report will have no effect un-
til the start of the season because the
players remain eligible to practice
with the team.
The primary infraction revolves
around the compensation the three-
some received for their appearance
Aug. 22 at a fund-raiser for a
Holland youth who is in need of an

ear operation. While compensation
is fully acceptable under NCAA
regulations, the controversy arose
out of ambiguity of an NCAA statute
mandating student-athletes be com-
pensated "legitimate and normal ex-
The trio received $300 each for
its services, which included judging
a slam-dunk contest, signing auto-
graphs and passing out awards.
The second infraction concerns
an apparent "over-visiting" of bat-
ketball camps.
NCAA bylaws state that while
student-athletes may work at camps,
they may do so "provided not more

'M' kickers down EMU with ease

by Mike Hill
Daily Sports Writer
Even the numerous missed op-
portunities by the Michigan wom-
en's club soccer team (3-4-3) could
not help an overmatched Eastern
Michigan squad. The Wolverines
trounced the Eagles, 4-0, in their
home opener last night at Mitchell
The Michigan side controlled the
ball throughout, holding play in the
Eastern end. However, goals seemed
hard to come by.
"We had too many shots for that
few goals," Michigan coach Peter
Manning said. "I don't know.
Hopefully this win will put us on our
way. But it just wasn't very hearten-
ing that we didn't finish all the
chances that we had."
The Wolverines had .28 shots on
goal in the first half but failed to
score until the 42-minute mark.
Leading scorer Lisa Ashton put
Michigan on the board when she ri-
fled a shot past EMU goalie Jennifer
The bounces in the second half
were a bit kinder to the Wolverines.
Junior Neysa Colizzi's left-footer at
63 minutes, assisted by senior Jenny
Steinhebel, put them up, 2-0. Later,
forward Shannon Loper bulled over
Thompson for an easy open-netter.

One minute after that, Loper notched
her fourth goal of the season to put
the Eagles away for good.
Wolverine keeper Crissy Rice
had a relaxing afternoon as the
Eastern Michigan offense was rela-
tively nonexistent. Rice recorded
two saves, but the Eagles never
threatened to score. The shutout was
Rice's second of the season.
"This was probably my easiest
game of the season," Rice said. "It
really wasn't a very challenging
Though the Wolverines domi-
nated throughout, they were unhappy
with their production. Time after
time, open shots sailed wide.
Sophomore Lynda Hart had an op-
portunity early in the first half, but
her shot caromed off the left post.
Hart was just one of the many
who missed open shots. Ashton may
have had the worst luck of them all.
In the second half, after just missing
wide on a one-on-one opportunity
against the Eagles' Thompson,
Ashton fired a cannon shot that
missed high by about six inches.
"We should have beaten them
much worse than we did," Loper
said. "The ball was bouncing off the
posts and we really had trouble get-
ting it in (the net). But hopefully this
is a start of a winning streak."

Including last weekend's 2-0 vic-
tory over Purdue, the Wolverines are
on a two-game winning streak and
have a week to heal minor bumps
and bruises before they host
Windsor next Tuesday.
OPEN TRYOUTS: Michigan will
be holding open tryouts next week.
