At 33-years-old, Finland Na-
tional Team forward Lea Hakala is
old enough to be a college basketball
coach, but don't tell her that.
The six footer scored 26 points
including a jumper from the free-
throw line as time expired to hand
the Michigan women's basketball
team a 66-65 defeat in its home
The buzzer-beater gave Finfand
their first victory in four games, and
nullified the two free throws that
center Trish Andrew calmly sunk
with 12.1 seconds left to give the
Wolverines a 65-64 lead.
Though Andrew did her part at
the line to keep the Wolverines
ahead, poor free-throw shooting was
a key factor in Michigan's demise in
the final minutes. The Wolverines
missed the front ends of three one-
and-ones in the last 4:46, shooting 8-
16 from the charity stripe for the
game. After emphasizing free-throw
shooting in practice, Michigan coach
Trish Roberts was not pleased with
her team's performance.
"We work every practice on free
throw shooting," Roberts said. "I
think that (free throw shooting)
could have made the difference."
Freshman guard Tannisha
Stevens agreed with Roberts analy-
sis. Despite scoring nine points in
her first collegiate game, Stevens
missed two important free throws
down the stretch.
"My free throws had a big impact
on the game," Stevens said. "I will
be in practice before and after
working on them."
Roberts also criticized the Wol-
verines' defense for its poor play.
Michigan stayed in a man-to-man
defense for the entire game, hoping
to force turnovers and score tran-
"They scored at will on us, they
penetrated and cut the lane, and
went to the boards," Roberts said.
"I'd like to play man-to-man but I
feel I am going to have to adjust ac-
cording to our personnel."
The loss may be a harbinger of
darker days to come for the Wolver-
ines as Finland was defeated easily
by Big Ten rival Northwestern 79-
53. Although the loss to Finland was
a disappointment, Andrew thinks the
Wolverines are just experiencing the
growing pains associated with a new
coach and a new ideology.
"We're all freshman again," she
said. "We're all learning the game
from a different standpoint. I think
we're all confident we can be good."

Webber's 17 lead Blue to 103-83 victory vs. Russians

AUBURN HILLS, Mich. -
The Michigan men's basketball
team withstood a furious second-
half comeback by the Russian
Samara National Team last night
at the Palace of Auburn Hills to
prevail, 103-83, in an exhibition
"I liked the fact we had the op-
portunity to play somebody else.
We have a lot of things we can
teachand work on," Michigan
coach Steve Fisher said.
After trailing Samara 33-29,
with 4:26 remaining in the first
half, Michigan went on an 18-0
run to enter the lockerroom with a
47-33 lead. Rookie guard Dugan
Fife, from Clarkston, Mich.,
highlighted the run when he hit a
trey from the left wing with 1:22
remaining, giving the Wolverines
a 39-33 lead.
Fife followed it up with a steal
and an acrobatic lay-in over Youri
Kirilov, who fouled him. Fife
missed the bonus, but his perfor-
mance brought the sparse Palace
crowd to its feet and sparked the
often sloppy and sometimes lack-
luster Michigan offense.
At the half, Juwan Howard led
the Wolverines with eight points,
while guard Youri Joukaneko
paced Samara with ten.
Michigan appeared to have the
game well in hand at the 11:31
mark of the second half, leading,
74-54. However, Samara was not
finished. Paced by the scoring of
point guard Igor Krachev - who
led all scorers with 29 - Samara
closed to within nine, 76-67, with
7:51 on two Alex Zaitsev free
Michigan answered Samara's
run with one of its own, and with
5:09 remaining, once again had
the game under control, leading,
85-69. Michigan appeared pre-
dictably rusty during much of the
game. Many times, the Wolverines
broke down the court, only to lose
control of the ball near the basket.

'M' women harriers vie for title

preparation for the NCAA National
Championship in Bloomington on
The Wolverines leave for Bloom-
ington tomorrow morning looking
for a little revenge. Michigan, who
lost to Wisconsin in last week's
District IV meet, gets a rematch.
However, the Wolverines, who
dropped from third to seventh inwthe
rankings -after their loss to Wiscon-
sin, will be fighting more than a
grudge match on Monday. They will
have to hold off three-time defend-
ing champion Villanova, who is ex-
pected to win again. Georgetown,
Arkansas and Brigham Young are
other teams expected to place well at
Michigan coach Mike McGuire
feels that this year's cross country
team is one of the school's strongest
"We finished seventh overall at
the 1988 Nationals," McGuire said.
"We are definitely as talented, if not
more than the 1988 team. We also
have a lot of depth."
All but one spot has been filled
on the seven person roster. The team
consists of Karen Harvey, who fin-
ished third in dsistricts, Molly Mc-
Climon (4th), Courtney Babcock
(10th), Kelly Chard, Chris Szabo
and Molly Lori. The seventh spot is
still open to one of three people. The
three teammates vying for the open-
ing are Amy Parker, Jessica Kluge
and Katy Holbacher. All three will
travel with the team to Bloomington,
but only one will participate. All-
American Amy Bucholz is still in-
jured and will not be running.
McGuire feels a performance
similar to the Big Ten meet is
needed to finish strong.
"We hope to have a Big Ten-type
of performance," McGuire said. "If
we get that, we could end up fourth
or fifth overall and that would be
great. We need a strong all-around
race because if one person is a little
off, that could set the whole team
Michigan runner Molly Mc-
Climon feels running the course at
districts is a definite advantage.
"The team feels confident from
already running the course," Mc-
Climon said. "We know the tough
and good spots on the course so that
will help in the long run."

"Just do it!" This Nike slogan has
become the men's cross country
The Wolverines travel to Bloom-
ington Monday to compete in the
NCAA national championship. The
race will be run over the same
10,000-meter course used for the
district championships last weekend.
The Wolverines earned a bid to the
nationals by virtue of their third-
place finish at that event.
Many college cross country races
are run on an 8,000-meter course.
The districts and nationals are both
held on a 10,000-meter course.
"The longer course seems to help
us," Michigan coach Ron Warhurst
said. "The way we train helps us
handle the increased distance. I hope
that it rains and the course is sloppy.
The cold and tough weather condi-
tions won't hurt us as much as teams
like Arizona since we are used to it."
There are so many runners in the
race that running together as a team

have been the goals for the entire
season, but now each team member
has to find his own motivation for
this race. For the freshman duo of
Theo Molla and Scott MacDonald,
this will be the biggest test of their
"It's the biggest meet," Molla
said. "I am very excited and looking
forward to the competition."

I'm not making any predictions,"

Penn State rests
by Wendy Law
Michigan, the nation's ninth-ranked women's swim-
ming and diving team, travels to University Park, Pa.
today. The Wolverines will swim against new Big Ten
member Penn State and Princeton in triangular
The Michgan tankers (2-1 Big Ten, 2-3 overall) are
looking to rebound after losses to Tennessee and North
Carolina. The presence of the Wolverine divers at Penn
State (No. 23) will give the Wolverines an advantage
they did not have in those two defeats.
According to Michigan coach Jim Richardson,
Princeton will not be much of a challenge.
"Princeton has three excellent individuals who are all
national to world class competitors," Richardson said.
"Once you get past those three, the depth drops off con-
Penn State, however, is a different matter.
"Penn State has excellent national caliber people,"
Richardson said. "They have depth and quality-in the
sprint freestyle, middle distance freestyle, distance
freestyle, and butterfly. They are a little weak in the
breast stroke. We swam them two or three weeks ago at
Iowa in a two-day invitational. On the first night's
events, they beat us head to head."
Penn State will also have an added advantage over
"They are going to shave for the meet," Richardson
said. "They'll go a full rest. That will be a huge chal-
lenge for us to try to swim with them when they are ta-
pered. We arenot going to shave and we are not going
to rest for the meet."
However, Michigan is not going to give up without
a fight. The team has been training hard this season.

Struggling through a rash of
detrimental injuries and sicknesses,
the Michigan women's volleyball
team hopes to remain competitive
for postseason eligibility when they
host conference rivals Illinois and
Northwestern this weekend.
The Wolverine seniors are suffer-
ing most from the injury bug; co-
captains Tarnisha Thompson and
Hayley Lorenzen have and will con-
tinue to miss considerable action.
Thompson dislocated her shoulder
against Minnesota last weekend and
is lost for the season. Lorenzen, who
is recovering from a bout with
mononucleosis, has seen action of
late, but has not returned to the start-
The Illini, who earlier dispensed
with the Wolverines in Champaign
in three games, are currently ranked
seventh nationally, and are the top-
ranked Mideast Region team. De-
spite these obstacles, Michigan ap-
proaches this weekend against the
Illini and Wildcats with unbridled
"The injury to Tarnisha will play
a major factor, but Julie (sophomore
Julie Scherer) has done a great jobg
filling in," junior middle blocker
Marita McCahill said. "Our coaches
believe we are going to play well
this weekend, and we believe it too.
This week in practice we played
Also in the Wolverines favor is
the fact that they played very com-
petitively against the Illini in Cham-
. "They didn't crush us by any
means, and this time with the home
court advantage, we will play very
well," McCahill said.
Michigan has indeed played Illi-
nois very tough at Cliff Keen, as
history shows. This season marks
the third consecutive season in
which Illinois has visited Ann Arbor
carrying a lofty ranking - the Wol
verines hope to dethrone the Illini
for the third consecutive season.
In Michigan's season home
closer against Northwestern, the
Wolverines hope to extend their
three-game winning streak against
"We expect to play better this
time around against them; simply
because our team has improvedg
since then," McCahill said.
