.begins hoops hype
Soccer aims to kick
some Butler, Illinois

Daily Basketball Writer
Even though men's basketball
practice doesn't begin for another
month, the hype has already started.
In the first of what will probably
be many preseason accolades, the
Basketball Digest 1992-93 College
Basketball Preview hit area news-
stands Wednesday proclaiming
Michigan the nation's No. I team.
The cover features sophomore for-
ward Chris Webber, a preseason all-
American pick by the magazine,
dunking over a Cincinnati defender
in the Final Four. A banner headline
picks for the Wolverines:

The answer is revealed two pages
later with another headline pro-
cflaiming this to be "The year of the
Wolverine," and another photo of
Webber, this time on the break at
The magazine assumes Webber,
sophomore guard Jalen Rose, and
senior center Eric Riley will all be
playing, and makes no mention of
Students interviewed generally
expressed optimism about the pre-
diction, but many stated concern
about the status of Webber, Rose
"If everyone plays, we're No. 1,"
LSA freshman Adam Bosch said.
"But if Webber, Rose and Riley are
on probation, there's no way."
Senior economics major Stacey
"I think (the prediction) is pretty
true, but it depends on what happens
with the suspensions," she said.
In the Big Ten preview article,
the magazine says that "Anything
less than a national title (for
Michigan) will be a disappoint-
ment." However, the writer also
calls attention to Michigan's incon-
sistency last year.
LSA junior John McCaw re-
mained similarly cautious and with-
held any outright predictions.
"If they all return, they have a
shot," he said. "But this all depends
on the suspensions."
However, not all students stated
concern over the trio's eligibility.
"I'm not sure the suspensions
will make a difference," Engineering
junior Mike Caton said. "All three
should end up playing."
Bosch said he wasn't surprised
by defending national champion
Duke's No. 5 ranking.

After salvaging a tie with
Schoolcraft Wednesday, the Mich-
igan men's soccer team (4-8-2)
hopes to kick into high gear this
weekend with tough competition ar-
riving Saturday against Butler and
Sunday versus Illinois.
Although the Wolverines lost to
Butler 2-0 earlier this season, coach
Aaron Smith feels that his players
have improved their offense since
the last time the two teams clashed.
"Over the last four games, we
have been able to put more balls in
the net," Smith said. "When we
played Butler the last time, it seems
like we didn't start to get into the
game until the second half. If we
score some goals early, we should
do all right against them."
The Fighting Illini pose another
crucial obstacle for Michigan in its
quest for the Big Ten club champi-
"The next challenge in the Big
Ten is Illinois," junior Reza Sad-
japour said. "Purdue seemed to be
the team to beat, but we already beat
them 2-0. If we beat Illinois, it will
send a message to the other teams
that Michigan is the team to beat in
the Big Ten club tournament."
This message is being sent with-
out the presence of two of the
Wolverines' top players.
One of the major concerns of the
soccer team heading into this week-
end was the health of Brian
Rosewarne (hamstring) and senior
co-captain Kelly Kuehne (hip). Both,
players missed the game against
-Schoolcraft, but they should return
for limited action this weekend.
"They're going to play some, but
not the full ninety minutes," Smith...
said. "I want them healthy for the

Linksters search for standout at Invitational
by Jaeson Rosenfeld
All great teams have one. A Magic Johnson, a
Larry Bird, or a Wayne Gretzky - a player who
steps forward when the team needs it most and
pats up big numbers.
Michigan women's golf coach Sue LeClair is
looking for one of her players to take a leading
rule and shoot low scores in the late rounds.
"We play pretty consistently between 78 and
82," said LeClair. "What we need is a player to
shoot around 75 to keep us among the top
LeClair cited the performance of Michigan
State senior Carolyn Nodus, who with a round of
74 single-handedly propelled the Spartans past
, Michigan in the second-round of the Spartan
"They always seem to come in with a low
score," said LeClair of the Spartans, a team she
hopes the Wolverines will eventually beat in
While Michigan will not face Michigan State
this weekend, it will play Big Ten foes Indiana,
Iowa, Ohio State and Purdue in the 13-team
Lady Buckeye Invitational.
The tournament will feature 36 holes
Saturday and 18 holes Sunday on the Ohio State
Michigan should feel right at home on the
6,037 yard, par 72 track, which is considered one
of the best in the Big Ten.
"The course is very similar to our course as
far as overall difficulty," LeClair said. "It has a
lot of trees."
Although this is the first time the Wolverines
have played 36 holes in one day, LeClair said she
does not see fatigue as a factor.
"We have in the past usually shot better on
the second 18," LeClair said.
LeClair said the team's goal is to finish in the
top five again, and she feels her golfers have ma-
tured enough in the last two meets to make this a
"I feel that they're getting (to) where their
concentration is good enough for tournament
play," LeClair said.
Michigan will send seniors Wendy Bigler,
Tricia Good and Maura Hawkins, junior Tegan
McCorkel, sophomore Jenny Zimmerman and
freshman Shannon McDonald to Ohio State.
