ment. With a first-round victory, the
Wolverines take on the winner of the
Texas A&M-Arizona State game. The
Sun Devils are coached by Bill Frieder,
who left his job as the head man at
Michigan during the 1988-89 season.
A victory in the second round would
put the Wolverines in the final against
the winner of the Chaminade-Mary-
land, Indiana-Utah bracket.
The likely matchup against either
Maryland or Indiana will be a very diffi-
cult task for Michigan. Nevertheless, the
players and coaches are looking forwani
to the early-season opportunity.
"I'm like the kids, I like to play
good people where there is an excite-
ment in the arena when you walk in,"
Michigan coach Steve Fisher said. 'I
like that a lot. But the most important
thing is I want to make sure we win."
The Tulane game will actually A
at 12:30 tomorrow morning on ESPN.
With a win, the Wolverines will play
again 7p.m. Tuesday. Due to the single
elimination format, there will be only
one champion. But the first- and sec-
ond-round losers brackets guarantee
every team a chance to play three games
before heading back to the mainland.
Women swi.mers have
easy time with Penn State
By REBECCA MOATZ
Daily Sports Writer
After cruising past its toughest divi-
sional competition last week, the Michi-
gan women's swimming and diving
team faced its most challenging Big
Ten road competition this weekend.
Once again the Wolverines proved why
it is ranked No. 1 in the conference.
The number three seemed to be a
magical number for the Wolverines (3-
0 Big Ten, 5-0 overall) who defeated
ing first in all but three events, sweep-
ing three of them. Senior Alecia
Humphrey and sophomore Rachel
Gustin were multiple winners, each
claiming first in three events.
Humphrey and Gustin began the
meet winning the 200 medley relay
along with freshman Talor Bendel and
junior Megan Gillam.
However, the result all came down
to the final touch with Michigan edg-
ing out its competition, 1:46.76 to
Humphrey went on to win the 100
and 200 backstrokes (57.06,2:01.63),
and the 100 butterfly (57.41), while
Gustin went on to win 100 and 200
breastrokes (1:03.55,2:18.86) and 200
individual medley (2:05.65).
Also winning for the Wolverines
were freshman Kerri Hale in the 1000
free, Bendel in the 200 free, sopho-
more Anne Kampfe in the 200 butter-
fly, freshman Karin Bunting in the
500 free and diver Carrie Zarse.
The Wolverines swept the 100
breast, 200 fly, and 200 IM with the
underclassmen leading the way. Fol-
lowing Gustin in the 100 breast, were
sophomore LisaButzlaff(1:04.71) and
freshman Alegra Breaux (1:06.81). In
the next event, the 200 fly, freshmen
Hale (2:005.31) and Bunting (2:06.12)
fell into second and third while in the
200 IM, freshmen Kim Johnson
(2:06.37) and Breaux (2:07.89) also
followed suit to complete the sweep.
However, even with all of the Wol-
verines' wins, the Nittany Lions dis-
covered and exploited Michigan's
weakness: the sprints.
Penn State's Deni Rudy who holds
the seventh fastest time in the confer-
ence, returned to win the 100 free,
place second in the 50 free to a fellow
Nittany Lion, and lead the 400 free
relay team to victory.
Yet the loss of the sprints was not a
surprise for the Wolverines who saw
this as their weakness two weeks ago
against No. 2 Texas and No.4 SMU.
The Michigan squad is in its toughest
month of training and kndws that it
must put an extra effort into its weaker
This will, no doubt, be a focus for
the team as it prepares for the Speedo
Invitational which takes place after
WHO: Tom Dolan
TEAM: Men's Swimming
HOMETowN Arlington, Va.
WHY: Broke his own Canham Natatorium record for the 100 freestyle against No. 3 Texas Saturday.
Dolan also won the 500 freestyle and finished second in the 200 breaststroke.
BACKGROUND: As a freshman, Dolan was given the United States Olympic Committee Athlete of the Year
award. He is currently nominated for the Sullivan award. Dolan set world record in 400-meter IM at World
Championships. He was the Big Ten Swimmer and Freshman of the Year. He qualified as an NCAA All-
American in 500 freestyle, 1650 freestyle, 400 IM, and 800 freestyle.

individuals and I'd been waiting for the
team to show up," Urbanchek said.
"For the first time, I really felt this team
was a team. We earned the right to be
No. 1. We swam like a No. 1 team."
The Wolverines (1-0 Big Ten, 5-0
overall) simply dominated the Long-
horns (1-1) from start to finish. Michi-
gan won 12 of the meet's 13 events,
finished both first and second in seven,
and swept the top three places in the
200 individual medley.
Texas was missing its top relay
team due to exams and its top 200
butterflyer due to illness. But that was
still not a factor, according to Long-
horn coach Eddie Reese.
"I don't want to make excuses. We
got tramped on," Reese said.
Reese, whose Longhorns defeated
No.2 Stanford last week, felt the Wol-
verines' performance was far ahead of
schedule for this point in the season.
"I'd like to see Stanford a lot more
often than I'd like to see Michigan.
They were awesome," Reese said. "This
is the best they've ever swum before
Christmas. Iexpected them to be a little
If the Wolverines were fatigued, it
didn't show in the water. Michigan
began the meet by exploding offof the
blocks to win the crucial 400 medley
relay by over six seconds in a time of
In the next event, Wolverine Tom
Dolan capped off his banner week fit-
tingly. He broke his own Canham Na-
tatorium record for the 1000 freestyle,
winning in a time of 9:04.16. Dolan
also went on to finish first in the 500
freestyle (4:27.03) and second in the
200 breaststroke (2:03.25).
"I've got a couple of guys I would
trade for him," Reese said. "He's al-
Dolan's invincibility earned him
theU.S. Olympic Committee's Swim-
mer of the Year Award earlier in the
season, and now it has resulted in a
nomination for the Sullivan Award,
given to the NCAA's top amateur ath-
"He deserved it," Urbanchek said.
"He's definitely the No. I swimmer in
Yet Dolan downplayed the honors,
highlighting his workethic andperfor-
"It's definitely been a good week,"
Dolan said. "The (awards) arejustkind
of icing on the cake. It wasn't my goal
going into the year. Of course, it's nice
to have. What I look for is to work hard
and to swim fast. If you do, then the
awards will follow."
Dolan was not the only star of the
meet, however. Michigan's Royce
Sharp won both the 200 butterfly and
the 200 backstroke. He also took sec-
ond in the 200 individual medley.
"Royce Sharp's near-triple was un-
believable," Urbanchek said.
Other Wolverine swimmers who
came out on top in their events in-
cluded: Chris Rumley (200 freestyle),
Gustavo Borges (50 freestyle), Owen
von Richter (200 IM medley), Steve
West (200 breaststroke), and Derya
Michigan diver Abel Sanchez took
the one-meter springboard event from
teammate Alex Bogaerts with a score
of 295.35. The three-meter competi-
tion was the sole event won by Texas,
with Longhorn Sam Arieff topping
Sanchez and Bogaerts with 328.73
Of course, none of the Wolverines'
successes Saturday count toward the
national title. Only the NCAA finals
determine that. But Michigan has pro-
nounced itself as the early-season
frontrunner forthe national champion...
"(They are the favorites) withouta
doubt," Reese said. "They've got so
many people that you can't
stop...They've got something they
haven't had in a while: depth. But not
just depth in numbers. They have what
you would call strength in their depth."
Dolan thinks Michigan's combina-
tion of depth and talent will pack an.
even stronger punchnow that theWol1
verines have defeated the Longhorns.
"I think this has brought us together
a lot more than we have been this year.
It's been one of our problems," Dolan
said. "We have so much talent and this
has helped us get it together. That will
It will help Urbanchek as he takes
his deep, newly cohesive unit out east
to the Harvard Invitational in early
December, hoping to keep it on pace
for a win at the National Champion-
ships in March.
That's what he's really waiting for.
The last time Michigan lost
eight regular season games dn
two seasons was in 1967 andg
1968. The Wolverines lost
nine games in 1983 and
1984, including consecutive
defeats in postseason bowls.
