DETROIT - The Michigan
hockey team found a cure to the
CCHA playoffs blues after losing to
Lake Superior in the CCHA
semifinals, 5-3 - winning during
the NCAA playoffs.
This weekend produced elation
and satisfaction as the Wolverines
overcame two one-goal deficits to
defeat Wisconsin (24-15-3 overall)
in a 4-3 overtime thriller at Joe
Louis Arena. With the triumph,
Michigan (30-6-3) earned its second
consecutive trip to the NCAA
semifinals.
The play leading to the final goal
began simply enough with Dave
Roberts carrying the puck out of the
Michigan zone. However, as the
senior forward crossed the Badger
blueline, Wisconsin defenseman
Brian Rafalski attempted to ride
Roberts out of the play.
Roberts managed to squeeze past
his smaller opponent, continuing his
rush to the net as he skated in on
Wisconsin goaltender Jim Carey
from right to left. Between the
hashmarks Rafalski's teammate,
Chris Tok, attempted to sweep-
check the puck away from Roberts.
Tok got a piece of the disk, and it
bounced off of Roberts' skate.
Fortunately for the Wolverines,
the puck glanced off of the blade in
the right direction. Roberts picked
up the loose puck and buried it be-
hind Carey into the Badger net for
the winning tally at 1:35 of the over-
time period.
"Roberts is a great player,"
Wisconsin captain Barry Richter
said. "He just muscled his way

INDIANAPOLIS - Michigan
expected a tight battle for second,
and through two days, it was.
However, on the final day of
competition at the NCAA swimming
championships, something hap-
pened. The Wolverines men's
swimming and diving team was able
to 'hook the horns and solidify the
second-place finish that the team
coveted.
Stanford won their second con-
secutive NCAA championship by
accumulating 520.5 points. The
Wolverines scored 396.0 points

while Texas scored 326.0. But the
story of the meet, as far as the
Wolverines were concerned, was the
final day of competition. In the five
individual events on the final night,
Michigan won three events and
* earned one second and one third.

SEATTLE - A year after rolling
into the Final Four as the nation's
darlings, as a lovable, irreverent
band of basketball-playing toddlers,
they are back.
Only this time it is different.
They play the heavy now, the bad
guys. Black socks, black shoes and a
nasty attitude to match.
But some things may never
change. To reach New Orleans they
reverted to their old ways, to running
and jumping and laughing, and it
paid off handsomely.
"We let something take that
youthfulness away from us," said
Chris Webber, the West regional
tournament's Most Outstanding
Player. "Everybody made an effort
to have fun. We used to have fun
whether we were down 17 or up 17.
I think you will see that same team
in New Orleans."
Yesterday at the Kingdome, the
Michigan basketball team solved the
new upstart, Temple, 77-72, to
champion the West Regional and
return to the Final Four. The Wol-
verines (30-4 overall) play Ken-
tucky, Saturday evening in the
Superdome.
After an inspired first half by
Temple (20-13), the Wolverines
headed into the locker room trailing
by eight, 35-27. To that point, the
inside duo of Webber and Juwan
Howard had been quieted by the
Owls' matchup zone defense, which
limited them to a combined eight
points.
"Coach thought that Chris and I
weren't doing a good job as far as
establishing position inside," said
Howard who, along with Webber
and Jalen Rose, were named to the
All-Tournament team. "I felt that
both of us weren't working hard in
the first half as far as trying to get
the ball inside."

around the defenseman. It is frustrat-
ing to lose in an overtime situation.
It will be tough to sit with 15,000 of
your friends (at the Bradley Center
in Milwaukee)."
The game winner was originally
awarded to Dan Stiver, who swung
at the puck the same time Roberts
did. However, all Michigan cared
about was that someone had sent the
team on a trip to Milwaukee.
"I doesn't matter who scores the
goals," defenseman Pat Neaton said.
"We've got to get scoring from all.
We'll take it from who can get it."
Revenge was good medicine for
Roberts, after Michigan's sickly loss.
to Wisconsin in last year's NCAA
semifinals.
"When we found out we were
playing Wisconsin, everyone was
excited about redeeming ourselves
after last year," Roberts said. "It

gave us some motivation. It was a
long summer and I thought about
last year's game -on more than one
occasion."'
The Wolverines were almost
headed for another early vacation
when Tok fired in his third goal of
the season. He ripped a slapshot past
Michigan goalie Steve Shields from
the top of the left circle, at the 14:07
mark of the third period, to give the
Badgers a 3-2 lead.
"Any time you let in a 60-foot
slapshot, you've got to take a look at
what you did wrong," Shields said.
"I've done it before and I am sure
it's not the last time I will."
"This team doesn't respond neg-
atively to a goal against," Stiver
said. "We've got a lot of character
on this team."
Despite the deficit, the

Jalen Rose cuts down the Kingdome's nets after Michigan's 77-72 victory
over Temple. Saturday, the Wolverines play Kentucky in New Orleans.

"(Fisher) gave me a challenge,"
Webber said. "He told me to play
like a man, rebound and give it sec-
ond and third efforts."
Webber proceeded to catalyze the
second-half revival, grabbing seven
rebounds and scoring nine points.
Howard added seven points and
seven rebounds. Their bruising play
spelled doom for Temple, which re-
lied on its zone to hide its weak in-
side game. By game's end, Michigan
held a 40-32 rebound edge.
After yielding one free-throw at-

tempt in its regional semifinal win
over Vanderbilt last Friday, Temple
committed 22 fouls - 16 in the sec-
ond half - and sent Michigan to the
charity stripe 28 times.
"They were just too strong in-
side," said Temple guard Rick
Brunson, who led all scorers with
21. "I thought William (Cunning-
ham) and Derrick (Battie) did a great
job, but their talent just beat us
tonight."

Need

or

Ouimet looks to end Michi

Imagine you are a CCHA
defenseman facing Michigan's top
line of seniors Mark Ouimet, Dave
Roberts and Dan Stiver.
Stiver controls the puck along
the boards on the left side of the
Wolverine defensive zone. As the
Wolverines start the breakout,,
Stiver sends the puck to Roberts
cutting across the blue line, and
you backpedal to center ice.
As you reach your blue line,
Roberts feeds a breaking Ouimet
who happens to be charging down
your side of the ice. It is alright,
though, he is still in front of you.
Ouimet closes the gap between the
two of you quickly as you reach
the top of the faceoff circle.
You are positioned well to
handle him as he makes a move
wide toward the boards. Uh-oh,
this guy is fast. As you turn to
follow, all you can do is flail at
him with your stick. His number
15 is a blur as he cuts in on your
goaltender and feeds a pass to
Stiver across the crease for an easy
tap-in. It's a nightmare.
Is Mark Ouimet fast? Maybe

played against," Michigan captain
David Harlock said. "College
%an hockey is a game of speed -it's
Iff up-tempo. You can't catch him in
sha one-on-one footrace. (Ouimet's
speed) adds a really important
ingredient to our team."
That is what you would call an
understatement.
Ouimet centers Michigan's top
line with Roberts on his left and
Stiver on his right. Stiver has the
shot, Roberts has the moves and
Ouimet has the jets. Roberts and
Ouimet lead the team in scoring
with 64 and 60 points respectively
and Stiver is sixth with 45 points
- 29 more than he had last
Ouimet has been turning
countless defensemen into
turnstiles and pylons this season
without making moves on most of
them. He just blows past them.
But it wasn't always this way,
though.
"He is so strong per pound,"
Michigan coach Red Berenson
said. "He's always been fast, but I
think he's faster now because he's
so strong. He's turned it up even
this year."
