The Michigan women's basket-
ball team has a pre-practice ritual
that coach Trish Roberts would just
as soon do without.
At 12 p.m. the players file into
the locker room at Crisler Arena, to
dress themselves for the coming
Five minutes later the "great mi-
gration" begins, as the Wolverines
make their way to the training room
to have their injuries treated.
After hobbling through the first
two games of the season, Michigan
is finally making the path to the
training room a road less traveled.
The return of two players from in-
juries will allow Michigan to dress a
season-high ten players for tomor-
row's contest against Notre Dame
(1-2) at the Joyce Athletic and Con-
Roberts is hoping the return of

Wolverines capture their first vic-
"We've got two players back,"
Roberts said. "Jennifer Brzezinski,
our freshman, has looked very good
in practice the last two days. This
will give us a little more depth on
the inside and a little more depth on
the outside, as Shimmy can play
both inside and outside."
The return of Brzezinski and
Gray could also help jump-start
Michigan's fastbreak, which has
performed poorly in its two previous
' games. Against Indiana State, the

fastbreak was slow in getting staited,
allowing the Sycamores to get back
on defense and force the Wolverines
into a half-court offense.
Michigan's fastbreak should be
given plenty of chances to prove its
mettle against Notre Dame, as Irish
guards Coquese Washington, Sherri
Orlosky, and Stacy Fields have had
trouble handling the ball early in the
"We had 41 turnovers against
Purdue, so we have been turning
over the ball at quite a rapid rate,"
said Notre Dame coach Muffet
Knowing that the Irish have had
problems controlling the ball, and
having two more sets of fresh legs to
substitute with, Roberts will look to
turn up the pressure.
"We did tighten up our defense in
the last 8 to 9 minutes of the
(Indiana State) game, with a full-
court press, trapping, running and
jumping type of thing," Roberts said.
"You're going to see a little bit more
of that now that we have some peo-
ple we can sub in."
When the Irish guards have been
able to hang onto the ball, they have
been able to score. Orlosky led the
team in scoring in its first two
games, while Washington has also
scored in double figures. After being
burned from long range by Indiana
State, Michigan has worked on de-
fending the perimeter in practice.
While Notre Dame's guards have
scored points on the outside, the key
to their offense is the frontcourt. The
frontcourt was shut down in the
Irish's first two losses, but got on
track in a 76-71 victory over Illinois-
Chicago. Sophomore forward Letitia
Bowen was a force inside with 19
points and 13 rebounds in the Notre
g room decrease
"They've got two kids who postj:
up very well inside," saidsRoberts of
Bowen and teammate Katura Jones. n
"My understanding is the post play-
ers work really well together."
One particular area where theT
Notre Dame frontcourt has excelled :
is on the boards, with the Irish outre-
bounding their opponents in all three
games this season.

And, because Notre Dame
scouted a depleted Michigan team at
Indiana State, Roberts hopes to
surprise the Irish.P
"They're coming off a win, so
that's going to give them a little
more momentum," Roberts said.
