WOMEN CAGERS LOOK TO AVENGE LOSS TO TOLEDO
Wolverines call do-over
by Mike Hill
and Rich Mitvalsky
Daily Basketball Writers
Donning new apparel - long,
baggy shorts to boot - the
Michigan women's basketball team
challenges the Toledo Rockets
tonight at Crisler Arena to a do-over
after its subpar performance at
Toledo a year ago.
The Wolverines would like to
forget the 89-69 stomping they re-
ceived at the hands of the Rockets in
1991. The Rockets' full-court pres-
sure frustrated Michigan into shoot-
ing 36.4 percent from the floor.
Toledo led by as many as 34 points
before removing its starters.
The Rockets successfully em-
ployed a zone defense to neutralize
Michigan's primary offensive
weapon, Trish Andrew. Andrew,
who got into early foul trouble,
snared a team high 12 rebounds, but
collected only 11 points, nearly eight
below her season average. This sea-
son, first year head coach Trish
Roberts hopes to involve more
players in the offense.
"Trish (Andrew) is definitely a
key player, and she brings a lot to
our offense," Roberts said. "But our
offense is designed to create shots
for everyone on the team. And I
think right now the kids are so used
to looking to her, and if we can get.
them looking for the shots for them-
selves, I think that will improve the
overall continuity of the team."
Roberts may integrate more
players into the game through
Michigan's up tempo pace. With her
players scattered at all ends of the
court, Roberts hopes the seniors will
help ease the team's transition to a
"It's good to have that many
older kids," Roberts said. "The thing
you Itave to remember is, of all these
kids, it's like their freshman year be-
cause it's a new head coach, a new
system, and everything they're learn-
ing, they're learning for the first
time just like the freshmen. I think
the key to our success depends on
how well they are able to make the

which have decimated their front
line. Andrew and senior Nikki
Beaudry are the only experienced
Wolverine frontcourt players with a
clean slate of health.
Beaudry led the Wolverines with
16 points against Toledo last season,
but she will face an interesting
predicament tonight. Beaudry's
younger sister, Noelle, is a freshman
forward for the Rockets and led Flint
Powers High School to the Class A
State Championship her senior year.
The Rockets finished 15-1 in
Mid-American Conference play, and
captured the league crown and an
NCAA tournament bid under fifth-
year head coach Bill Fennelly. With
the graduation of standout Jane
Roman and three other starters, the
Rockets will look to preseason all-
American selection Dana Drew for
point production. The junior guard
averaged 15 points a game last year.
Michigan forward Nikki Beaudry has extra incentive to win tonight's
opener against Toledo. Her sister Noelle plays forward for the Rockets.
