Sophomore right wing Anton Fiodorov became a father Thursday.
His wife Amy gave birth to a 7-pound, 9 1/2-ounce baby girl. Nicolette
Suzanne was born at 4:25 a.m. but Fiodorov, a native of St. Petersburg,
Russia, was at practice in the afternoon to hand out cigars to his
SCORING LEADERS: Senior Mark Ouimet, following his five-
point outburst against Notre Dame Saturday, leads the team in scoring
(eight goals-26 assists-34 points). "Ouimet's played well all season, so
it's nice to see the puck going in for him," Michigan coach Red
Berenson said. "He has really worked hard all year. It's nice to see
things paying off for him."
Ouimet's linemate, Dave Roberts, is tied for second (10-20-30) in
scoring with junior Dave Oliver (21-9-30). Oliver's linemates, Cam
Stewart (10-15-25) and injured center Brian Wiseman (5-20-25), round
out the top five.
'D' TAKES CHARGE: The Wolverines have outscored their
opponents 116 to 60 in 24 games and have allowed just two goals in
their last three games. Michigan has also outshot its opponents 816 to
614. Goaltender Steve Shields had a scoreless streak of 119 minutes
snapped when Garry Gruber dented the twine for Notre Dam'e at 7:41
of the second period.
Michigan is 9-1-1 in its last 11 contests.
#.,,*.:..ROBERTS ROBS RECORD:
Senior left wing Roberts passed for-
mer Wolverine Brad Jones on the
all-time Michigan assist list. He
now has 139 helpers to Jones' 138.
Roberts became the all-time leader
when he assisted on Dan Stiver's
..12th goal of the season, putting
Michigan up, 5-0, 1:38 into the sec-
ond period Saturday.
Roberts has also scored 18
i points in his last 11 games and is
fifth on the all-time scoring list
2f with 212 points, just one behind
Gordon McMillan, a Wolverine
from 1946 to 1949.
KILL 'EM ALL: The Michigan
F iodorov penalty killers have put together
quite a streak over the last four tilts.
After holding Notre Dame scoreless on five power-play
opportunities, the Wolverines have successfully killed off the last 22
mansadvantage situations against them. Illinois-Chicago forward Link
Bessert scored the last power-play goal against the Wolverines in the
Flames' 6-4 victory, Jan. 9.

aren't the way

At the beginning of the Michi-
gan-Minnesota men's basketball
telecast on Raycom last Wednesday,
an "inauguration night" montage
invited President Clinton to "pull up
a chair" and watch the game.
Of course, that was sheer folly.
The only sports fans who willingly
watch Raycom are those who are
truly devoted to the teams being
shown, and not only was the Uni-
versity of Arkansas not competing,
but McDonald's wasn't even a spon-
sor of the telecast.
Nevertheless, there's a way to get
the President interested in Michigan
despite these deficiencies: invoke the
name of Barbara Streisand. Let us
remember "the way we were."
Make that the way the Wol-
Specifically, as everyone pre-
pares for tonight's 7:30 p.m. game
between the Wolverines (4-1 Big
Ten, 15-2 overall) and Buckeyes (2-
3, 9-5) at Crisler Arena, let us recall
the teams' three encounters last
season. Last Feb. 2, the Buckeyes
dominated Michigan at Crisler, 68-
58, as the Wolverines scored only 13
points in the first half. Junior
forward Jimmy Jackson led Ohio
State with 22 points and nine
March 3, 1992, saw Michigan
roar to a giant lead in Columbus,
only to lose control of the game in a
two-minute stretch of the second
half that saw Buckeye sophomore
Lawrence Funderburke explode for
six of his nine points. Ohio State 77,
But the final memory we'll see is
a smile Michigan left behind - the
NCAA quarterfinals at Lexington,
Ky. Led by Chris Webber's 23
points, the Wolverines defeated the
Buckeyes, 75-71, in overtime.
Ahi ... the way we were, or at
least, the way the Wolverines were.
Now, let us send Bill back to
Washington and Barbara back to,
well, wherever she came from.
Because, especially on the Ohio
State end, we aren't that way

Gone from the Buckeye roster is
all-American Jackson, who passed
his senior season for the NBA draft.
Gone too is forward Chris Jent,
whose outside jumpers, had they
fallen, would have sent Ohio State to
the Final Four. The Buckeyes lost
five players to graduation - plus
Jackson - and now are dominated
by youth, with six freshmen and
"We're a completely different
ballclub," Ohio State coach Randy
Ayers said. "We've got a lot of new
players in our program. What we're
trying to do now is find the right
blend of veterans and newcomers.
We're still looking to find the right
Ayers said that Ohio State will
shake up its starting lineup tonight.
Rookie guard Greg Simpson, Mr.
Basketball in Ohio for both his
junior and senior seasons, and
sophomore center Antonio Watson,
will get the start, while sophomore
Rickey Dudley will shift from the
center spot to the forward position.
Ohio State does feature some ex-
perienced returnees, most notably
junior Funderburke. Averaging 17.6
points and 6.6 rebounds per game,
Funderburke keys the Buckeyes on
both ends of the court.
On his weekly television show,
Michigan coach Steve Fisher com-
pared Funderburke to Webber.
"Without question (there are
similarities)," Fisher said. "He's a
quick jumper, a lot like Chris, got
great hands and he's explosive in-
With Funderburke, guard Alex
Davis provides Ohio State's back-
bone of experience. The senior
averages 9.5 points and 3.1 assists
per game. Davis' assists appear
deceptively low, as the Buckeyes
sport five players with more than 20
assists; Davis leads with 40.
However, the main feature of
these Buckeyes is youth, and youth
brings inconsistency. Ohio State,
who earlier this season upended
Iowa, 92-81, brings a three-game
losing streak into tonight's ESPN-
"If you don't have experience in
your lineup, or coming off the
bench, it's gonna play a factor be-
cause you're still trying to develop
team chemistry," Ohio State assis-
tant Dave Cerutti said.
On the other hand, Michigan is
on a roll. With Ray Jackson's return
from a shoulder separation and
Michael Talley's recovery from the
flu, the Wolverines, who have won
three straight, bring a healthy lineup
into tonight's contest.
