Foul loss for Michigan against IU

Free throws, rebounding make

difference as Wolverines fall,


ana basketball team had made more
free throws (284) than its opponents

match-up with No. 10 Michigan, and
is averaging 10 more conversions per
That trend continued Sunday, as
the 11th-ranked Hoosiers (3-0 Big
Ten, 10-2 overall) nearly doubled up
the Wolverines from the line.
Indiana scored 36 points from the
free-throw line - including 23 in the
second half - to upend the Wolver-
ines, 82-72, and extend its Assembly
Hall winning streak to 37.
Michigan (3-1, 11-3) was just 10
for 19 from the charity stripe.
"We had to stop them from getting
to the free-throw line," Jalen Rose
said. "I think free throws were the
Indeed, in the last six minutes of
play, the Hoosiers connected on 14 of
16 shots from the line, accounting for
all but two of their points down the
Alan Henderson collected 13 of
his game-high 19 points from the line,
outscoring the entire Michigan team
from the stripe.
In addition, the Wolverines missed

the front ends of a pair of one-and-one
opportunities during that six-minute
stretch, and concluded the game miss-
ing five in all. Rose, a 75 percent free-
throw shooter heading into the game,
missed two of those front ends, and
wound up sinking just three of his six
attempts from the line.
"We missed three one-and-ones
in the first half," coach Steve Fisher
said. "You can't do that against a
team like Indiana at home."
Still, down 15 with just 4:12 to
play, Michigan posed a sizable come-
back to make a game of it.
Following a Ray Jackson jumper
in the lane that narrowed the lead to
72-59, Rose, Jimmy King and Bobby
Crawford each nailed three-pointers
to cut the lead to just seven, 75-68,
with 1:28 remaining.
Two free throws from Jackson at
the 1:02 mark cut the lead to five.
However, with 41 seconds left, while
setting for another three that would
have brought the Wolverines to within
two, Crawford stepped out of bounds,
effectively ending the game.
Michigan was forced to foul, and
then Rose was whistled for a techni-
cal with just eight ticks left on the
"He was begging for a technical
foul," Fisher said of Rose, who had

two points in the first half and ended up
with a team-high 16 on 6-for-21 shoot-
ing. "It was almost like he was intent to
make it happen. I think he got frus-
trated as the game wore on."
That frustration was evident in all
the Wolverines throughout the sec-
ond half.
After Henderson gave the Hoo-
siers their first lead of the game with
a follow of his own miss at the 16:22
mark of the second stanza, the Wol-
verines began to unravel.
Michigan lost its patience offen-
sively and resorted to launching hur-
ried jumpers, usually from three-point
range. The Wolverines missed their
first nine threes of the second half and
finished shooting a dismal 18 percent
from behind the arc.
"Frustration caused us to take some
ill-advised shots," Fisher said. "We
needed to do a better job getting the
ball inside to Juwan (Howard). We
took the first shot that presented it,
"We should've got more players
involved," said Howard, who had 12
points and nine rebounds.
And that's exactly what they did
at the start of the game.
Michigan exploded to a 6-0 lead
thanks to three steals, including a

.Stanford turns Blue waters red

The clash between the No. 1 and No. 3
men's swimming teams in the nation lived
up to the hype.
Both the Michigan and Stanford swim-
mers put up their best unshaved, untapered
times, and two Canham Natatorium records
were broken.
The Cardinal pulled out the meet, 133.5-
109.5, Saturday afternoon largely because.
of their sweeps of the 400-yard medley re-
lay, 400-yard freestyle relay and the 200-
yard breaststroke.
The breaststroke put Stanford into the
lead, essentially clinching the victory. Jun-
ior Kurt Grote led the Cardinal's sweep of
the top three places in the event.
"Michigan was giving us a real run. So it
was exciting for us to make a difference,"
Grote said.
Michigan had hoped to have better per-
formances in the relays.
"We wanted to split the relay in the

beginning. It would have made it easier. We
gambled, and we lost," Michigan coach Jon
Urbanchek said of the 400 medley relay.
In the 400 medley relay, Stanford's Brian
Retterer got off to a good start with a time of
:47.66 on the backstroke. The time broke the
pool record that Retterer set Friday evening
and qualified him for the NCAA champion-
ships. Michigan's 'A' relay team could never
make up the difference.
Throughout the middle of the meet, the
Wolverinesslowly closed the gap and jumped
into the lead prior to the 200 breaststroke
with a sweep of the 500 free. Freshmen Tom
Dolan, Chris Rumley and John Michael
Piersma led the Michigan charge.
"Probably the best (event) was the 500
free," Urbanchek said. "To sweep the one-
two-three with the freshmen, that's great.
That gives the boys a lot of good confi-
Dolan's victory in the 500 ended a suc-
cessful day in which he won two events.
Earlier in the day, he won the 1000 freestyle

in a Canham record time of 9:09.56.
"I just wanted to make sure we went one-
two," Dolan said. "Once I got ahead, about
halfway through, I felt good so then I started
pushing it more."
Dolan credited the atmosphere at
Saturday's dual meet in aiding his efforts.
"I was expecting it to be a big deal but I
never thought it would be like this with all
the people and the band," he said. "It helped
to get me pumped up, especially with the
band and everyone going crazy."
In addition to Dolan's performance, the
Wolverines had another double-event win-
ner, Gustavo Borges. In a battle of 1992
Olympians, Borges outtouched Stanford's
Joe Hudepohl by .24 seconds in the 100
"I wish Borges had shorter arms,"
Stanford coach Skip Kenney said. "He's

Following the footsteps

NOTIE DAME - Boring.
Do the Wolverines know the mean-
ing of this word?
Don't those four-point efforts by
David Oliver get old after a while?
Don't those Mike Knuble power-play
goals grow tiresome? Isn't anyone
sick of seeing Steve Shields stop shot
after shot?
Apparently not.
Michigan used these seemingly
hackneyed weapons again to polish
off Notre Dame, 6-1, before a crowd
of 3,368 at the Joyce Fieldhouse Sat-
As usual, the special teams per-
formed impressively - the power
play going two for five and the pen-
alty killing unit stopping all seven
Irish man-advantage chances - in
the same-old, same-old triumph.
With the victory, the Wolverines
(16-0-1 CCHA, 21-1-1 overall) ran
their winning streak against the Irish
(6-10-2, 8-14-2) to 15 games, sending

1-0 lead after the first stanza on a
Jason Botterill power-play goal, his
14th marker of the season.
"We've got to start playing well
right off the bat," Michigan center
Brian Wiseman said. "That's one part
of the game we really need to improve
on. In the first period we coughed up
the puck in our zone too much."
On this night, though, memories
of the subpar first period quickly
melted away for the Wolverines.
They took a 2-0 lead when Oliver
scorched a slapshot from just inside
the Michigan blue line, getting it past
Notre Dame goaltender Wade
Salzman low on the glove side.
And then the floodgates opened,
as four consecutive goals by Michi-
gan poured into the Irish net. The
Wolverines' second-period lead en-
abled them to take Notre Dame out of
its game plan of tight checking.
"I think they checked well up to a
point," Berenson said. "It's hard to
get back in the game when you're
trying to check, though. You've got

it's never an easy task for a
freshman to replace a departing
senior, especially when that
graduate is the 1992 Olympic silver
medalist in the 400-meter individual
medley, Eric Namesnik. And in those
situations, comparisons will be.
inevitable, be they fair or unfair.
This is the scenario for Michigan
men's swimmer Tom Dolan.
Dolan comes to Michigan as one
of the world's best in the 400 IM.
Last summer, he placed second in the
400-meter IM at the 1993 Pan Pacific
Championships. At the U.S. Senior
Nationals, he also finished second,
behind Namesnik, in the same event.
So, if any one can fill Namesnik's
Speedo, it is the freshman out of
Yorktown High School in Arlington,
Despite these impressive
credentials, Dolan is still only four
months into his freshman year of
college and not ready to fully replace

Dolan has the potential to become
a superstar in the swimming world.
After all, he is already ranked in the
top 10 in the world for the 400 IM.
But he wants more than just being in
the top 10. He wants to be on top,
and this was one of the main reasons
he chose Michigan, where

"One reason I came to Michigan
was because of Jon," Dolan said. "In
my opinion, he is one of the best
coaches in the nation. I knew I would
be able to train with 'Snik, which is
really the best situation I can have
anywhere in the world. Being able to
look up to'him and to see what he's
done and how he acts really helps a
Namesnik also sees the
advantages of training with Dolan
and the Wolverines' other top IMer,
junior Marcel Wouda.
"It's a great atmosphere to train
in, because you have the three best
