Saturday night's Michigan triumph will not go down

Like a squeaky wheel constantly
reminding the driver it's there,
Illinois just kept making noise.
What was once a 19-point
Michigan lead had slowly dwindled
down to seven with 2:43 remaining.
Led by Andy Kaufman's 21 second-
half points, the Fighting Illini
clawed back into the game, leaving
the sellout Crisler Arena crowd a bit
But the anxiety of the Wolverine
faithful would subside as Jalen Rose
applied the grease that ultimately si-
lenced the Illini. While the sopho-
more point guard led Michigan (4-1
Big Ten, 15-2 overall) in scoring
with 25 points, it would be his
poise at running the Wolverine of-
fense that would give Michigan a
76-68 victory Saturday night.
"The only time I had a comfort
level in those last seven minutes
was when Jalen had the ball because
I knew a good decision would be
made," Michigan coach Steve Fisher
said. "He needs to know that he has
to demand the ball (down the stretch)
and others need to know that i"
those situations he's got to have it."
Rose calmed a flustered Michigan
squad, patiently controlling the
tempo of the game in the final few
minutes. He was in command
throughout the game, adding five re-
bounds and five assists to his 10-for-
14 performance from the floor.
"In the beginning of the season
- for whatever the reason - the
shots weren't falling," Rose said. "I
just felt better tonight. But I don't
base the game on how much I score.
I take pride in being a winner. "
For much of the contest, the
Wolverines looked to be crusing to
another lopsided victory. After open-
ing the game somewhat sloppily,
Michigan picked up the pace with
the substitution of Ray Jackson into
the lineup at 9:25 in the first half.
Jackson - who had been side-
lined for almost a month with a dis-
located left shoulder - quickly re-
turned to the fold, scoring eight
points and helping spark a 24-12
Wolverine run late in the half.
Michigan entered the lockerroom at
the intermission with a comfortable
Michigan came out in the second
half and continued to put pressure on
the Illini, extending the lead to 59-
40 with a little under 13 minutes
remaining in the game. But then the
Wolverines became a little lax on of-
"We got a 19-point lead by run-
ning," Fisher said. "But now the lead
goes to 15 or 14 and you pass up
that shot you took when you were
19 ahead. You spread the floor, you
get the rebound, you make the extra
pass. We did not do that until they
cut it to seven or eight."
Illinois took advantage of the
Michigan lapse. After a dismal two-
for-11 shooting from the floor in the
opening stanza, Kaufman found his
range, going eight-of-13 in the sec-

Michigan skates to easy victory
Notre Dame falls, 7-1, in near-flawless Wolverine performance
by Tim Rardin
Daily Hockey Writer
NOTRE DAME - While it would ap-
pear that offense was the key for Michigan
in its 7-1 victory over Notre Dame, it was
the defense that proved to be the story.
The defense did more than shut down
the Irish, (4-14-2 CCHA, 6-16-2 overall)
limiting them to a single tally and just 24
shots on goal, but it also had a significant
hand in scoring for the Wolverines (13-4-
"Our defense did a good job in getting
the puck through," Michigan coach Red
Berenson said. "I thought they were re-
sponsible for four of the seven goals."
One of those goals - the Wolverines'
first - came just 3:34 into the game.
Center Mark Ouimet won the face-off at
the left circle and dropped the puck to de-
fenseman Al Sinclair. Sinclair sent the
puck screaming in front of the Irish goal,
where Dave Roberts was standing to
knock the loose puck home.
"We've been working in practice a lot
in getting the puck off the boards, just
getting it through," said Sinclair, who
notched his first point of the season on the
goal. "Roberts was there, so I tried to put
it somewhere in the vicinity."
That goal was the beginning of the end
for Notre Dame, whose fate would be
sealed for good in the second period.
Trailing just 3-0 going into the second
stanza, the Irish found themselves down,
5-0, and out less than two minutes in.
Defenseman Chris Tamer struck first for
the Wolverines, beating Irish goaltender
Greg Louder stick side from the right side
of the crease.
"I think it was a deflected pass and I
picked it up in front of the net," Tamer
said. "The goalie had a good angle on me
and I was going to pass, but I kept on go-
ing to the side and put the shot in."
Tamer, with his highsticking penalty in
the first period, broke Alex Roberts'
Michigan record of career penalties with
"I was in the box and I read it some-
where that I was going to break it," Tamer
said. "I guess there's not many more
penalty records to break."
Just 35 seconds after Tamer's goal,
right wing Dan Stiver scored his 12th goal
of the season to give the Wolverines the
five-goal cushion. That line of Stiver,
Ouimet and Roberts would continue to do
damage all night, assisting or scoring on
five goals in all.
After his assist early in the first period,
Ouimet scored twice himself in the period,

Earlier this year, during halftime of the
first home football game, all of the
Michigan Olympians were honored on the
field. The band played "The Olympic
Fanfare" as each athlete was introduced to the
Michigan Stadium crowd.
For many it was probably the first time
they had heard of, or even seen one curly-
haired sophomore swimmer from Brazil. And
when those in attendance got their first
glimpse of Gustavo Borges, it is likely he
made a memorable impression. After all, it
