Iowa coach Vivian Stringer had only one-fifth her usual starting lineup on
the floor for the opening tip last Friday against Michigan.
Of those beginning the game for the Hawkeyes, only senior center Cathy
Marx usually starts. The Hawkeyes most often tip off with four seniors and a
junior; against the Wolverines (0-8 Big Ten, 3-14 overall), the four that began
the game with Marx were a junior, a sophomore, a freshman and a junior-
"I was really shocked when we got the starting lineup," Michigan coach
Trish Roberts said. "I don't know what Vivian's rationale was behind it, but
it gave our kids a chance to stay in the game with them at least for the first half."
Stringer, who earned her 500th victory with the Hawkeyes' win, said the
change in lineups was due to dissatisfaction with the usual starters. Stringer
said that she had done the same thing several years ago with some success,
making it an easy decision.
While Roberts had only praise for Stringer, she had a different idea
regarding the roster switch.
"The way that I took it was that 'Gee, they don't really have a whole lot of
respect for my team,"' Roberts said. "They think that they can start their
second five and play with us. I think that motivated our kids too because I made
them aware of that in the huddle."
Freshman guard Jennifer Kiefer downplayed the supposed slight.
"We just had to go out and play our game," Kiefer said.
And play their game they did, at least until some of the Hawkeye seniors
were inserted into the game with around four minutes to go in the first period.
The Wolverines traded runs with the Hawkeyes the whole half enabling them
to tie the score at 30-30 with two minutes left.
The elder Hawkeyes then proceeded to show off the experience that earned
them their No. 4 ranking, finishing the half with a nine-point run.
LONG-RANGE BOMBER: Records are nice, but then again so is winning.
That's why records broken in losing efforts are so bittersweet, as Kiefer can
certainly tell anyone.
The freshman set a new Wolverine record for made three-point field goals
in a game when she connected on 5-of-8 attempts against Minnesota Sunday.
However, Michigan dropped the game, 79-70. The old record of four was held
by Jen Nuanes, a guard who finished her eligibility last year.
Kiefer's accomplishment came two days after she tied Nuanes' record with
4-of-6 three-point shooting against Iowa in the Wolverines 78-56 loss.
For the whole weekend, Kiefer took only two shots inside the arc, making
one, and went 2-for-2 from the stripe to complement her 14 attempts from
COACHING COMPARISON: Vivian Stringer took over at Iowa for the 1983-84
season, following a 7-20 record the year before. That season the Hawkeyes
went 17-10, an impressive Big Ten debut for the coach who has gone on to
become the third-winningest active women's basketball coach. The next year,
her team went 20-8 for a record of 37-18 in her first two years at Iowa.
Roberts is finishing her second year at Michigan with considerably less

anonymous call implicating Harding,
Gillooly, Eckardt and Smith while
the skater was still in Detroit.
When she and Gillooly returned to
Portland, agents watched as they met
with Eckardt to concoct a cover story,
called Smith from public telephones
and repeatedly drove by Eckardt's
house in an attempt to monitor his
interview with the FBI, Hoevet said.
He said Harding personally ob-
tained Kerrigan's practice schedule,
in Boston and Detroit, and provided a
picture of her from a magazine.
She became irate when the attack
had not taken place by New Year's
Eve, and demanded her $2,000 back
from Eckardt, Hoevet said.
"I know Jeff deeply regrets his
involvement in this crime," Hoevet
said. "He knows he and others have
brought pain and fear to Nancy
Kerrigan, her family and her fans. By
this plea and cooperation agreement,
Jeff hopes to bring closure to his own
involvement in these events."
"A significant participant in this
crime has now been brought to jus-
tice. That is gratifying. It is also grati-
fying that he is required to give truth-
ful information," said Norm Frink,
deputy district attorney in Multnomah
. Before Gillooly's hearing, Frink
asked for, and received, an indefinite
extension of the deadline for indict-
ments in the case.
"The investigation is ongoing and
it's one further step in the investiga-
tion," Frink said.
Meanwhile, a special figure skat-
ing panel met yesterday for the first
time in Colorado Springs, Colo., to
consider stripping Harding of her U.S.
Figure Skating Association member-
ship. That meibership is needed for
her to compete in the Olympics.
Bill Hybl, the former U.S. Olym-
pic Committee president who chairs
the panel, said the panel may have its
recommendation sooner than its self-
imposed Feb. 10 deadline.
Mike Moran, spokesman for the
U.S. Olympic Committee, said, "It
would be inappropriate for the USOC
to comment on today's events."
Shimmy Gray and the rest of the Wolverines jumped off to a fine start
against Iowa, keeping pace with the No. 4 Hawkeyes for the first 19 minutes
success. Last year, the team was a dismal 2-25; three wins this year is an
improvement, but not by much. After winning 82 games in four years at Maine,
Roberts is 414 victories away from catching the coach she calls her role model.
THE FOUL FACTOR: With only seven players on the roster, it's imperative
for the Wolverines to stay out of foul trouble. That was something they did well
this weekend as not a single Michigan player fouled out of either game. Kiefer
picking up but one foul while playing 79 of 80 minutes in the two games.

But an official with the CFA said
the SEC was looking only at what to
do after the 1995 season, when the
CFA's $175 million contract with
ABC expires. The SEC's share of that
deal is reported to be about $15 mil-
"Any type of extension beyond
(1995) is where the SEC would be
able to explore their options, and that
is currently what they're doing," said
CFA marketing director Mike Bone
from his office in Boulder, Colo.
Bone said discussions were solely
between the SEC and CBS, not the
network and the CFA, which includes
64 of the largest NCAA universities.
CFA executive director Chuck

meeting. Rick Gentile, senior vice
president of CBS Sports, said the net-

CBS is looking for something to

Jefferson-Pilot syndicates games to

It was unclear whether a deal be-

result in the conference leaving the

member. But losing the SEC would
