At a time of the year when
everyone is talking about seeds, the
Michigan women's tennis team
might have been victims of a low
spot in last weekend's Rice/Donnay
Perhaps underestimated by the
seeding committee coming into the
tournament, the Wolverines were
slotted against eventual champion
South Alabama in the first round of
the seven-team event. While
Michigan fell, it was not without a
fight. In succumbing, 5-4, Friday,
Michigan turned in one of its better
performances of the season.
"It was a great match," Wol-
verine coach Bitsy Ritt said. "We
actually had match points in two
different matches we lost. Even
though we lost, the team played and
While the Jaguars went on to the
winner's bracket, turning away host
Rice in the finals, Michigan was
relegated to the consolation bracket
with the two other first-round losers.
The Wolverines showed their mettle
in their Saturday and Sunday
matches, breezing past last-place
finisher Northeast Louisiana, 5-2,
and then taking the consolation title
from Colorado, 5-4.
"(The first-round seed) did matter
in that we would have had a great
chance of winning if we had gotten
past (South Alabama)," junior co-
captain Jaimie Fielding said. "But
we came back and had two great
matches against Northeast Louisiana
Coming off her team's disap-
pointing performance in Florida over
spring break, Ritt decided to shake
up the lineup, especially in the
doubles pairings. While the Wol-
verines went winless in doubles
competition against Florida State
and South Florida, Ritt's move
brought home four wins out of seven
doubles matches in the Texas event,
including a decisive two wins in
three matches resulting in the victory
Michigan will try to take this
momentum into today's home meet
against Western Michigan at the
Indoor Track and Tennis Building.
The 3 p.m. match is the Wolverines'
only home appearance until April 7,
and the Wolverines said they hope to
capitalize on the home court
"Western always wants to beat
Michigan ... that's a given,"
Fielding said. "No one has a facility
quite like ours, so we're definitely at
an advantage there. They're not as
strong as they were last year, so
we're going to look to dominate
every match, control every point."

DETROIT - Good things al-
ways seem to come in pairs - mac-

Robin, Ginger Rogers and Fred
For the Michigan hockey team, a
twosome of its own made school
hockey history when goalie Steve
Shields and defenseman Pat Neaton
were selected for 1992-93 All-
CCHA First Team, the first time two
Wolverines have been selected for
the league's first team. Joining
Shields and Neaton are defenseman
Joe Cook and forward Brian Savage,
both of Miami, forward Brian Smo-
linski of Michigan State and Lake
Superior forward Brian Rolston.
It was the third consecutive year
Neaton has garnered some sort of
CCHA post-season recognition. Fol-
lowing his sophomore season, Neat-
on was selected to the league's se-
cond team, and last year he was dis-
tuinguished with honorable men-tion
For Shields, who led the CCHA
in goals against average (2.08), it
was the first time he has received
any postseason league honors.
Two Wolverines, forwards David
Oliver and David Roberts earned
Roberts made the second team
for the second time in three seasons.
He qualified for the second team the
same season as Neaton.
Defenseman Chris Tamer re-
ceived his first post-season honor
from the league's coaches as he
garnered honorable mention status.
Michigan coach Red, Berenson
expressed varied emotions concern-
ing the selections.
"I was disappointed Shields only
got five first-place votes," Berenson
said. "I was happy to see that we had
three of the top eight vote getters on
defense. As a coach, you always feel
your players could get more recogni-
tion. There is no question that
Ouimet and Stewart (both of whom
have over 50 points) deserved some
recognition, but players carry a bit of

Webber makes All-
America, All-Big Ten
by Adam Miller
Daily Basketball Writer
Like a high-powered electromagnet near iron,
Michigan forward Chris Webber has attracted
attention and awards throughout his playing ca-
reer. The tradition continued Monday night as
Webber was named a First Team Associated
Press All-America and First Team All-Big Ten.
"It's great to be named with the others who
have made the (All-America) team," Webber told
reporters. "People do not realize how much this
means to me."
Joining Webber on the All-America team are
Indiana forward Calbert Cheaney; Kentucky
forward Jamal Mashburn, who has announced
that he will enter the NBA draft after this, his
sophomore, season; Duke guard Bobby Hurley;
and Memphis State swingman Anfernee Hard-
away, another probable early NBA draft-entrant.
The All-Big Ten team consists of Webber,
Cheaney, Purdue forward Glenn Robinson, In-
diana guard Greg Graham, and Wisconsin
swingman Michael Finley. Cheaney was named
Big Ten Player of the Year, while Illinois coach
Lou Henson grabbed Coach of the Year honors.
Ohio State guard Greg Simpson was named
Freshman of the Year in the Big Ten.
Other Wolverines receiving honors include:
Juwan Howard - All-America honorable men-
tion and All-Big Ten second team; Jalen Rose
- All-America honorable mention and All-Big
Ten third team; Jimmy King - All-Big Ten
DRAINING THE TREYS: Rose's three-
pointer against Northwestern Saturday gave him
26 on the season and 62 in his career. That's
good for seventh on the Michigan all-time list.
Rose needs 13 more to tie Garde Thompson, a

NO, NOT KEVIN MCHALE: In many ways,
fans traveling to Tucson, Ariz., this weekend for
Michigan's first round games can expect to feel
at home in the McKale Center. U of A's home
arena seats 13,813, only 204 more than Crisler
Arena's 13,609. All seats are of the padded vari-
ety - just like Crisler. And a large scoreboard
with multi-color graphics - similar to Crisler's
- hangs above midcourt.
But there are some differences. The McKale
Center has four levels, as opposed to Crisler's
two. The largest of the levels is the third, holding
Additionally,'the arena advertises the
"specialty" for its nine concession stands to be
"Pre-game Barbecue." Wondering what exactly
that referred to, we called Arizona Sports Infor-
mation. No one in the office would come to the
phone, but the receptionist tried an answer.

The Michigan's men lacrosse
team (5-0) hopes to continue its
winning streak by defeating Oberlin
tonight at 10 p.m. at Oosterbaan
Oberlin, a Division III varsity
team, has defeated Michigan in each
of the past two years' meetings. De-
spite this fact, the Wolverines re-
main confident for tonight's game,
focusing their strategy on defense.
"Defense is actually going to be
the key to this game, because
they've (Oberlin) got pretty good
midfielders who'll run the whole
game," goalie Tony Martinez said.
"We have a very unique (de-
fensive) combination of power,
speed, and intelligence which I think
wreaks havoc on other teams. If the
other team does not have a very
'well-oiled offensive machine' to go
up against us, I think that spells one
thing for them - trouble," defense-
man Steve Bishop said.
At last year's contest, Michigan
wasn't full strength, and the weather
hindered both teams' play.
"We were shoveling snow, but
this year we'll be shoveling our op-
ponents!" sophomore Jamie Borteck
Oberlin will be an important
game for the Wolverines.
"This game could be the corner-
stone of our whole season, because
this will be our first real test against
a quality opponent; it'll prove how
we can play when the game is on the
line," sophomore Brian Dowd said.
