Michigan as his near triple double
lifted his team over Iowa, 89-76.
Rose scored 19, had 11 assists and
eight rebounds to go along with six

Women's swimming begins quest
for eighth consecutive Big Ten title
By DARREN EVERSON
DAILY SPORTS WRITER
The seven seniors on the Michigan
women's swimming squad have expe-
rienced nothing but success during their
careers in Ann Arbor. After winning
the Big Ten championship each year
throughout their time with the Wolver-
ines, they would be heartbroken by
anything less than a victory at this
weekend's conference championship
meet in Indianapolis.
Leading the Wolverines in their
quest for their eighth straight Big Ten
title is the quartet of Alecia Humphrey,
Tara Higgins, Lara Hooiveld and Anne
Kampfe. Higgins is a senior co-captain
and one of the team's top individual
Humphrey, last season's Big Ten
swimmer of the year, is Michigan's
best backstroker. Australian-native
Hooiveld is especially strong in the
breaststroke, while freshman Kampfe
has been effective in theIM'sand in the
Unlike other intercollegiate varsity
sports, not all of the Big Ten teams
faced each other this season. Michigan
is a perfect 6-04in conference competi-
tion and 8-0 overall. The Wolverines
will, however, face strong competi-
tion, particularly from standouts
Jocelyn Jay of Ohio State and Garland
O'Keefe of Indiana.
O'Keefe is the Hoosiers' star swim-
mer, a senior and a former national
finalist. She's an individual medley
(IM) specialist with herstrongestevent
being the 400-meter IM.
Jay, however, dominates in what-
ever she chooses to participate in. The
Buckeye won three of the ten events in
Ohio State's Jan. 29 meeting with
Michigan, while the rest of her team
only placed first in one other race.
Primarily alongerdistance swimmer,
Jay's strongest eventmight be the 1000-
yard freestyle, which she often wins by
double-digit second margins.
