the Badger power-play off the board.
After allowing Chicago to score five
of its seven goals with a man advan-
tage, the Michigan special teams
unit held Wisconsin to a mere three
goals on i11 power-play chances.
The Wolverines - seeded first
in their bracket of the tournament
- had to go through Chicago and
Northern Illinois to get to the finals,
and did so without a hitch, winning
the first game, 14-7, and the second,
In case you were wondering why
Michigan had to play these two non-
conference opponents in the confer-
ence tournament, it's simple: Chi-
cago replaced Illinois in the Big
Cen West division, because the Illini
had to replace Ohio State's club
team in the East division.
Northern Illinois replaced Min-
nesota in the tournament three years
ago, when the Gophers were no
longer able to field a team.
The Huskies defeated Illinois in
the first round of the tournament,
earning the right to play the Wol-
In the other bracket, top-seeded
Wisconsin knocked off hapless In-
diana, while Purdue beat Northwest-
The Boilermakers kept up with
the Badgers in their semifinal
matchup for more than 59 minutes,
with Wisconsin scoring the game-
winner with only 20 seconds to play.
Michigan beat Purdue 9-6 ear-
ier in the season, so the close game
with Wisconsin came as no surprise
to the team.
"We didn't really have to hustle
all year,"DiGiovanni said. "But the
guys came out hard (against Wis-
consin) and played with great inten-
Simich paced the Wolverines for
the tournament with 10 points on
#seven goals and three assists.
Henke had nine goals, while se-
nior midfielder Ivan Frank had six
points on a goal and five assists,
only two weeks after returning from
a knee injury, suffered on the spring
break trip to Florida.
Although the Wolverines will be
losing a number of players to gradu-
ation, there may be yet another Big

195.35 scored on two occasions this
season easily broke a school record of
193.45 set last season. In addition,
Michigan captured its third consecu-
tive Big Ten conference title after
edging out Penn State by .775.
Freshman Andrea McDonald was
selected Big Ten Freshman of the
Year after a stellar start to her Wol-
verine career. Although she is travel-
ing to her first collegiate national com-
petition, McDonald is ready to chal-
lenge the more experienced competi-
"While Super Six is our goal and
top six is great, we'd like to climb as
high as we can in the top six,"
McDonald said. "When we go out
there, we're focused on what we
have to do gymnastically, rather than
academically. There's not much you
can do about your academics out in
The uneven bars have been a weak
spot in the Wolverines' routine this
season. Marshall will lead off for
Michigan on the bars Thursday, but
past mishaps have not hampered her
"I've already taken the pressure
of myself in practice," Marshall said.
"At Nationals, with the top gym-
nasts in the nation, I guess it would
make you nervous, but I get more
As the Wolverines finished their
final practice yesterday, they com-
pleted both individual and team ses-
sions to build up both confidence and
endurance. Last week, they practiced
dry runs, with crowd noise and scor-
"The crowd may not be for us, but
you can think of it that way," Wymer
said. "It helps us think that we're not
the center of attention and that's not
as much pressure for us."
During both practice runs, the
squad scored above 195, a score which
it would be more than happy to post
"If we go all out, there's nothing
to lose," Marshall said. "We have one
day of competition, and that is going
to make us go to the next day. If we do
what we can, we could be No. I going
opt for new

John Friesz became a Washington
Redskin on Monday and Sean Jones:
became a Green Bay Packer as NFL
teams continued their shakedown to
get ready for Sunday's draft.
Friesz, the San Diego Chargers'
one-time starter, signed a one-year,
$900,000 deal with Washington,
where he's expected to be a short-
term stand-in for the quarterback the'
'Skins take with the third pick in the
draft - either Heath Shuler of Ten-
nessee or Trent Dilfer of Fresno State.
"They said John will have a real
opportunity to compete for the start-
ing job," said Friez's agent, Leigh
Steinberg. Steinberg said Friesz was
told the Redskins intended to take
Shuler or Dilfer.
Monday at midnight was the dead-
line for restricted free agents to sign
with new teams.
Alvin Harper, who had been mull-
ing an offer from the Pittsburgh
Steelers, seemed set to stay with Dal-
las because the Steelers were unwill-
ing to give up the first- and third-
round picks it would have taken.
As with Friesz, unrestricted free
agents kept moving.
The most notable was Jones, the
31-year-old pass rushing specialist
who the Packers hope will reduce the
double-teaming that Reggie White
faced last year. Jones, who had 13
sacks last year, will get $7.8 million
over three years.
The Packers lost another pass-
rusher, linebacker Tony Bennett, to
Indianapolis earlier this spring.
