Unlucky loss wasn't right for Blue

A

By Ravi Gopal
Daily Basketball Writer
When Indiana's Quacy Barnes
made a chippie at the buzzer last
night at Crisler Arena to give her
team a one-point win, the Wolverines
were in disbelief.
Coach Trish Roberts, hands on
hips, couldn't believe that Barnes had
beaten the clock.
Michigan's Tiffany Willard, after
a mammoth effort, stared at the floor.

-- The 720 fans
at Crisler were
silent, in shock
RT1 at what had
happened.
And the
opposing
Hoosiers were
celebrating in the middle of the court,
atop Barnes in a heap of glory.
It wasn't right.
Michigan had nothing to be

ashamed of. Judging by the score,
they are the weaker team. But, truth
be known, they are the more unlucky
team.
"Our kids played very well, and
they deserved to win tonight,"
Roberts said.
For 36 minutes, the Wolverines
did everything right. They made the
extra pass, hit the open jumper, and it
seemed as if luck was on their side.
The final score didn't make sense.
Not after seeing freshman Molly
Murray hit a running one-handed
scoop in the lane.
Not after hearing the crowd
explode as Tiffany Willard laid it in
with 5.7 seconds to play, giving her
team the lead, 77-76.
And definitely not after watching
Shellman and Willard knock the ball
out of bounds as Indiana tried to pull
off a final play. Their hustle knocked
valuable time off the clock.
But unlucky moments existed as
well.
Watching two of Michigan's
premier players, Akisha Franklin
and Shellman, earn their third
fouls with minutes left in the first
half.
Eyeing Barnes, as she towered
over everybody to grab the inbounds
pass from behind the backboard, and
watching her hit the gimmie shot.
Maybe it was right for the
Hoosiers to win, sending the
Wolverines hurtling toward
oblivion with their fifth straight
loss. Maybe it was right for
Michigan, which came out with so
much energy to begin the game, to
end a weekend discouragingly.
Maybe it was right for this
Wolverine team, decimated by
injury, to suffer another setback in
a season of losses.
No, it wasn't.

The Michigan women's swimming team rebounded from a loss to defeat Auburn last Saturday.
Women tankers dump Auburn

By Marc Diller
Daily Sports Writer
Finally, after a two-month road
stint, the No. 2 Michigan women's
swimming and diving team returned
home Saturday for its final official
dual meet at Canham Natatorium.
The Wolverines (8-1) rebounded
from its disappointing two point loss
at No. I Stanford with a 140-101
manhandling of No. 4 Auburn Sat-
urday. The meet marked the Wol-
verines' fourth victory over a top-
six team.
"I think we're confused about
where we're supposed to be," co-
captain Alecia Humphrey said.
"We've never been ranked this high
before."
Saturday's performance defi-
nitely abated any confusion Auburn
may have had.
"We played this meet up as our
biggest of the year," Tigers coach
David Marsh said. "Michigan really
showed that it's a national champi-
onship team."

Co-captains Jennifer Almeida
and Humphrey led the Michigan
seniors in their final home meet.
Humphrey (1:59.85) edged Auburn
co-captain Rachel Pchola in the 200
yard backstroke and Almeida
(1:51.80) finished second behind
freshman teammate Talor Bendel
(1:50.57) in the 200 yard freestyle.
Humphrey and Almeida also con-
tributed to separate relay victories
in the 400 yard medley and the 400
yard freestyle relay respectively.
"It's real sad to think that this is
my last (official) home meet as part
of the team," Humphrey said.
Michigan freshman Kim Johnson
placed first in the 100-yard free
(51.61) and contributed to victories
in the 400 free medley and the 400
free relhys.
Junior Megan Gillam, sopho-
more Rachel Gustin and Bendel each
notched two victories despite a rig-
orous week of training.
Junior diver Carrie Zarse re-
corded two victories in the one-

meter and three-meter dives.
"We did an excellent job fa-
tigued," Michigan coach Jim
Richardson said. "I'm real pleased
with the way we swam."
Even though the Wolverines
were tired, they were just too deep
for the Tigers.
"Michigan is real strong in depth,
which we're weak in," Marsh said.
"As far as NCAAs, the champion-
ship team will be able to go two to
three-deep in each event."
Only seven Wolverine swimmers
have qualified for the NCAAs in
Austin, Tex. In lieu of the Big Ten
championship meet being only three
weeks away, all the swimmers who
have not qualified for NCAAs will
start tapering and shaving this week.
Richardson hopes at least seven
or eight more swimmers will race at
Austin in March.
"We're into tapering for those
that don't have NCAA cuts yet,"
Richardson said. "Hopefully we'll
be ready to swim fast at Big Tens."

For the Daily
After back-to-back wins this week-,
end the Michigan women's tennis
team still feels there is room for im-
provement.
The No. 23 Wolverines defeated
Western Michigan Frday, 8-1, and
Miami (Ohio) Saturday, 7-2.
The match was Michigan's first
competiton in two months. As a re-
sult, the Wolverines made many mis-
takes even though they came away
with a victory.
Michigan coach Bitsy Ritt be-
lieved the reason behind all of the
Wolverines' unforced errors was due

"H11 QULI
LMW MME

to the team's immense layoff.
"I'm happy we won, it's a good
starting point, but we still have a lot of
work to do." Ritt said.
Strong showings for the team
against Miami came from No. 1 single
Sarah Cyganiak (6-2,6-4), No.3 Angie
Popek (6-3,6-1) and No.4 Jaimie Field-
ing (6-2, 6-4). The No. 2 doubles team
of Popek and freshman Sora Moon
crushed their opponents (6-0, 6-0).
"This match let us get back into the
swing of things, it was a good warm-
up for the rest of the season," senior
Liz Cyganiak commented.
Each players' individual style is
different. But one can also see the
unity between them as they support
each other, Bitt said.
This unity is what has led to their
past success.
Last year the Wolverines finished
second in the Big Ten and this year
they are hoping to improve to first.
This could be very likely since they
did not lose any major players from
last year's squad.
"Right now it is clear what we have
to work on," Bitt remarked.
They will be working on consis-
tency by having more practice Fts in
game-like situations.
The results of Michigan's wok in
the next couple of weeks will be shown
when the Wolverines take on Iowa for
their first Big Ten meet Feb. 11.
