FIELD HOCKEY
Continued from page 1
Lupinski took a beautiful pass from
Katie Thomas and put it past Spartan
goalie Sara Humpage.
"We beat MSU to the ball,"
Michigan coach Patti Smith said.
"They are an emotional team, and
I've seen them emotionally on top.
Tonight, we had the emotional edge.
We played all over the field and set
the tone."
The prettiest goal of the night
came in the second .half. Lupinski
took the ball at midfield and raced
toward the Spartan goal. Humpage
came out to challenge Lupinski at
the 30-yard line, but the Wolverine
freshman deked the goalie and went
in for an uncontested goal. It was
Lupinski's third point of the night.

Smith was impressed by the
freshman's play.
"Jen played great," Smith said.
"She was an inspiration to the team.
She used her speed. It (the goal) was
a great move. She played well and
hard all game."
The defense broke down a little
in the second half, but Geisthardt
was there to make all of the stops.
She added eight saves during the
second half to secure her fourth shut-
out of the season. The shutout was
the seventh of the seasonwhich tied
a Michigan single-season record.
Sunday, the Wolverines had their
hands full with Iowa. The Hawkeyes
had dominated Michigan in a 7-1
win earlier this season. However, the
Wolverines played a much better
game, losing, 2-0.
"We played pretty hard and had

some good chances," Smith said.
"Iowa is a great team. When they
scored on the first corner, I was
happy we didn't fall apart. We came
back and played a great game."
Thanks to its seniors, Michigan
played a very aggressive game
against Iowa, and was able to apply
some pressure. The game was a very
evenly played contest except for the
penalty corners. Iowa converted on
two of its eight and was able to get
some great shots on the others.
Michigan was unable to put any of
its five corners past goalie Andrea
Wieland.
"I was happy that we played
well," Smith said. "The seniors
played very well. They'll be a hard
group to replace."
"We played solidly as a team,"
senior Katie Thomas said. "It was a
nice way to end the season."
The Big Ten's all-time leading
scorer and Hawkeye all-American
Kristy Gleason scored the first goal
only two minutes into the game.
Iowa's other all-American, Jaime
Rofrano, centered the ball and
Gleason rocketed a shot to the right
side past a helpless Geisthardt.The
goal was all Iowa would need to end
its season undefeated at 18-0.
Geisthardt did have an outstand-
ing game. She made 12 saves and
challenge all of the Hawkeyes'
shots. Geisthardt also came up big
on two first half corners and kept the
team in the game until the end.

BLUE LINES
Continued from page 6
mediocre netminder can make a
quality squad an also-ran. The teams
of hockey lore had great goalies who
led them to championships. The tal-
ent-laden teams with poor puck-
stopping are hidden forever in
hockey's disappointing vaults of
near-misses.
But it is not that easy.
In the college game, inconsis-
tency is more often the rule. The
word around Lake State is that, be-
fore Saturday, Lacher was destined
for pine-riding. He came up huge
this weekend and bought himself
some time while providing Laker
fans with a tangible hope for the
future.
Shields had a big game over the
weekend as well but has been in-
consistent in the past. The Wol-
verines play in arguably the toughest
conference in the nation and have
discovered they need to do more
than just arrive to win games. They
will need Shields to come up big in
close contests as well as be more
consistent in his overall play.
These questions weigh heavily
on both coaches' minds. They des-
perately want answers. Michigan
and LSSU are searching for consis-
tently stellar goaltending because
they both know this season could be
a year of championships.

like it's a 1989 NCAA tournament
game. Harold Miner is still the steal
of the draft.
Boston is old. Very old. Espe-
cially in the paint. And they drafted
Jon Barry instead of Oliver Miller?
But they have been old for some
time now and they still find a way to
move those creaky legs in the lane.
Milwaukee beat the Celtics by 36
on Saturday: Someone besides Reg-
gie Lewis will have to score. Do
they realize that?
Orlando could be the most im-
proved team this season. They could
make the playoffs. All because of a
little ping-pong ball.
Philadelphia will score now,
something they couldn't do before.
But can they do much else?
Washington could use another
Super Bowl victory. Pervis Ellison is
an all-star and rookie Tom Gugliotta
will make fans forget about Walt
Williams, but the playoffs are still a
dream.

EASTERN CONFERENCE
-CENTRAL DIVISION:
Chicago is still the team to beat.
They did nothing to change that in
the offseason, acquiring Rodney
McCray, someone that Jerry Krause
says they have tried to get for sev-
eral years.
But Cleveland is still the team
that can beat "the team to beat."
They added Gerald Wilkins for one
reason: To guard Jordan. No other
Cavalier has been able to do that.
Not Ron Harper. Not Craig Ehlo.
Atlanta found a way to beat
Chicago in the Bulls home opener.
Dominique Wilkins is back, and
maybe better than before he wrecked
his knee. He now has a true point
guard in Mookie Blaylock.
Charlotte will have trouble win-
ning without a center, but once
Alonzo Mourning convinces Nike to
let him play, that will change.
Indiana could use Alonzo
Mourning, too. Rik Smits has fouled
out of nearly every game he has
played in the NBA. Things should
be calmer, though, without Chuck

Person around. And Pooh Richard-
son, the ex-Timberwolf, finally will
be able to pass the ball and watch
somebody put it in the basket.
Peter Vecsey may have had the
best line about the Detroit Pistons.
They could use five or six more
NBA players, he said. Until they get
some, though, Isiah Thomas and Joe
Dumars better plan on 48 minutes of
playing time each.
Milwaukee is in transition. It
will take time for Todd Day and Lee
Mayberry to assume prominent
roles. Until then, the veterans will
need to avoid injuries.
So what does this all mean?
What does this long season hold?
For starters, with all the trades
and all the acquisitions, it means
fans will have to buy programs more
often this year. But more impor-
tantly, it means that, hopefully, the
NBA Championships won't be the
formality that they were last season.
Someone still has to prove they are
better than the Bulls.
I think someone will.
Phoenix in six over the Cavs.
