ketball team. It was more of a
hackneyed team.
With forwards LaTara Jones,
Michelle Hall and Jennifer Brze-
zinski out due to injury, the
Wolverines were forced to run their
new uptempo style using only eight
players. Suffering fatigue and early
foul trouble, Michigan turned the
ball over 20 times and shot just 37.
percent from the floor.
With four fouls just 4:07 into the
second half, senior Trish Andrew be-
came a spectator. The Rockets took
advantage with a 13-4 run, resulting
in a 69-44 lead that all but wrapped
up the game. Three triples from
Kathy Lennartz, who finished with
15 points, gave the Rockets their
largest lead of the night at 81-51.
"When they had to put Trish on
the bench, that really hurt them,"
Toledo coach Bill Fennelly said.
"They had to go to a zone, which I
don't think they really planned on
playing. We like to push the ball up
the court and we got a few easy bas-
kets. The passing lanes did open."
.Michigan was in this game for

quite a while, though. After the
Rockets started the game with a 10-0
run, the Wolverines stormed back.
Freshman Tannisha Stevens, who
finished with 22, scored 12 straight
Michigan points, giving the Wolver-
ines a 22-21 lead.
"I felt like I played offense a lot
better than defense," Stevens said. "I
.felt like if I had played defense the
way I played offense tonight, then I
would be happy with my play. But I
didn't, so (my performance overall)
was just so-so."
Later in the first half, the Rockets
regained the lead for good, 33-31, on
a Lennartz triple, and they led by
nine at the half. Michigan's thin
bench couldn't provide enough sup-
port. Junior guard Dana Drew
pitched in 17 points when Lennartz
wasn't burying three-pointers.
"I think (the foul trouble) was the
key," Michigan coach Trish Roberts
said. "I think (other teams) know
that we're short with post players.
And if they have a smart coach,
well, I think (packing it in) is what
they should do."


The Michigan women's basketball team tipped off on the wrong foot last night, losing at home to Toledo, 90-67.

Well, ya can't fault 'em for effort. In comparison with past editions of
Michigan squads, this team ran what resembled more of a track meet than
anything else. And the Wolverines performance proved that first-year coach
Trish Roberts wasn't just blowin' hot air in the preseason when she vowed
Michigan would step up its pace this year..
Yes, the Wolverines were on the short end of the score, taking one in the
baggy pants last night to Toledo, 90-67. But Michigan reflected the change

at the helm in more ways than one.
A season ago, the Wolverines were a team with little variety, resorting to
a deliberate and methodical offense. No longer true.
The game against the Rockets was marked by a barrage of three-pointers
(the teams combining for 41 shots from beyond the arc), relentless front-
and backcourt pressure, and a multi-faceted Wolverine offense largely
paced by rookie Tannisha Stevens' inspiring 22-point performance. 6
But Michigan dressed only nine players, playing with only Trish Andrew
and Nikki Beaudry on the inside. Bitten by the injury bug, no less. Combine
that with the footrace Michigan orchestrated, and it was fatigue which
stymied the Wolverines more than anything.
After keeping pace with a Toledo team accustomed to running, it be-
came painfully evident that with both Andrew and Beaudry on the bench
early in the second half with four fouls, Michigan was drained. Toledo
decimated a slackened weakside defense in the second half and burned a
tired Michigan lineup with outside jumpers, broken only by Rocket lay-ins.
But the Wolverines are suffering from injuries in a big way. All told,
four Michigan big people are out indefinitely. Without the numbers on the 6
bench, Michigan starters can expect little R&R, and most likely will also be
involved in similarly exhausting contests before they regain some of their
bench strength.
They say time heals all wounds. When that time comes, Michigan's vul-
nerabilities to the running game will fade, and its new enthusiasm and speed
may indeed spark the Wolverines onto a season much improved over recent
