Badgers want to
avoid repeat of

The last time either Michigan or
Michigan State won a women's basket-
ball game Lyndon Johnson was in of-
fice, Vietnam protesters burned Ameri-
can flags and Santana was still groovy.
Well, actually it hasn't been quite
that long, but the two teams probably
feel as if it has.
The Wolverines (0-9 Big Ten, 1-17
overall) enter tonight's contest mired in
an 11-gamelosing streak while the Spar-
tans (2-6, 6-11) sport a 6-game exodus
from the winner's circle. Realizing that
one of the two teams will "change it's
evil ways," Michigan coach Trish Rob-
erts said she hopes her team will start the
second halfof Big Ten play on a high
'We know that we should have beat
Michigan State," Roberts said of the
Jan.13 matchup at Crisler. "I think that
(our players) are going to go out there
and play with a little more pride know-
ing that Michigan State beat them on
their own court."
If the Wolverines are to emerge vic-
torious, they must improve upon their

rebounds per game.
In addition, the Spartans out-re-
bounded Michigan in Ann Arbor, 40-
35, aperformance Roberts would rather
not see repeated.
"One key area I think we need to
rectify is last game they out-rebounded
us by quite a lot," Roberts said. "I think
if that's an area we can rectify that it will
make a big difference in the game."
Fatigue is another area of concern
for the injury-riddled Wolverines, as
tiring of their thin bench has led to poor
play in the closing minutes of recent
The Spartans are no stranger to this
problem - like the Wolverines, injury
has forced them to compete with only
seven players. However, Roberts said
she has a new strategy for alleviating
late-game lethargy that she hopes will
prove fruitful against Michigan State.
'Wehaven'tbeenplaying Val Turner
and Sherell Stanley very much," Rob-
erts said. "We have decided that we are
going to play them in spots, just so that
we can relieve some of the other kids
and give them some playing time."
After tonight, Michigan returns
home to host Wisconsin Friday night.

Don't laugh. Though the Big Ten
season is past the halfway point, the
Wisconsin men's basketball team (5-3
Big Ten, 12-5 overall) only trails Michi-
gan (7-2, 18-3) by one game in the loss
On the other hand, don't make too
much of this, either. Thenotion thatNo.

the Big Two this year still holds
weight - especially to the Badgers,
who come to Crisler Arena tonight for
an 8 p.m. game with Michigan.
'We tell our guys all the time that,
other than when we play them, we want
Michigan and Indiana to win every
game in the Big Ten because those two
teams are going to the Tournament al-
ready," Wisconsin assistant Stan Van
Gundy said. "We're just trying to keep
our heads above water, so every time
they beat a Purdue or a Minnesota or a
Michigan State, itreally helps our cause.
"But we're not even thinking about
making a run at the Wolverines -
The best reason to believe Van
Gundy comes from the clubs' earlier
meeting this season, a 98-73 Michigan
runaway at the Wisconsin Field House
Jan. 9. Though BadgerpointguardTracy
Webster lit up the Wolverine defense
for 25 points, Wisconsin had no answer
to Michigan's inside game. Juwan
Howard grabbed 20 rebounds - only
five less than the entire Wisconsin team
- and Chris Webber's 20 points led
four Wolverines in double-figures.
Van Gundy said the Wolverines have
"three of the best big people in the
country" in Howard, Webber and Eric
"What we'll try to do - and I
emphasize try to do - is keep them off
the boards," Van Gundy said. "That's
something that I think is very, very
difficult to do. But if you're going to
have any chance in beating them, you've
got to be able to hold your own on the

As much as Van Gundy praised
Michigan's frontline, Wolverine coach
Steve Fisher lauded the Badger tandem
of Webster and swingman Michael
'Tracy Webster is as quick and as
intelligent and as efficient a point guard
as there is in the laague," Fisher said.
"And Michael Finley ... is an absolute
sensational player who is getting
better and better as the season wears on.
And maybe as much as anything,
Wisconsin's increased improvement can
be traced to how Finley has improved."
Finley averages 21.3 points-per-
game, and he and Webster account for
46.6% of Wisconsin's average offen-
Tonight's lineups feature a few
changes from lasttime. Wisconsin guard
Andy Kilbride received a one-game
suspension for fighting in the Badger's
last game, a 102-87 victory over North-
western, and will miss tonight's game.
Junior Jason Johnsen replaces him in
the starting lineup.
On the Michigan end, forward Ray
Jackson turned an ankle against Purdue
and is listed as probable.
James Voskuil, who satout Sunday's
game with a hip injury, is expected to
play in tonight's contest.
Which, depending on who you talk
to, could be a laugher.
Or, on second thought ...

Psi U charity hockey rated a success
by Tyler Rheem
While most of us relished the "January thaw" that moved
into Ann Arbor over the weekend, the organizers of the First
Annual Psi Upsilon/Delta Delta Delta Hockey Tournament
of Champions worried.
The unseasonably warmweathermade preparation of Psi
U's outdoor ice surface tricky. By Saturday afternoon, how-
ever, mothernature had complied with Psi U's wishes and the
hockey tournament was underway.
Twelve three-man teams of fraternity members, intramu-
ral teammates and other combinations of hockey players
comprised the competition. Some came from as far away as
Toledo. Over $700 was collected through a $40 entry fee
required from each team. All of the money will be donated to
the Mott's Children Hospital.
'We've had the rink here for some fifty or sixty years,"
sophomore tournament co-director Ed Wolkind said, "and
we figured its use would be a great idea for charity."
The concept of the charity hockey game originated a few
years ago. It never became a reality due to reservations
surrounding injury and possible legal liability, given the
dangerous nature of hockey.
'We had all of the players sign a waiver before compet-
ing,"junior tournament co-director Aaron Kanter said, "and
the games followed rather strict rules such as no checking,
slapshots or pads."
The tournament concluded Monday evening with the
championship game pitting Gable against Mofeck. Gable,
headed by Psi U member Jon Gable, along with Chris
Newton, Cort and Jeff Assenacher, won a hard-fought game,
However, as with all first time events, there were some
"Some things didn't go so smooth, but we learned from
it," Kanter commented. "The ice has held up very well and
that was the major concern. Hopefully, next year the tourna-
ment will have more teams, and better weather, making it
bigger and better."
Of course, the main beneficiaries of the event are the
children and staffatMott's Hospital. Usually, hockey is a sport
that gives to hospitals by creating patients. This time, the effort
of the Psi Upsilon Fraternity, the Delta Delta Delta Sorority
and all of the competing hockey players will aid the work at
