'M'icers frustrated by

'Few things upset Michigan hockey
cech Red Berenson more than missed
,fter the Wolverines tied Ohio State,

2T2, Feb. 3, a frus-
trated Berenson at-
tributed the tie, in
p rMto Michigan's
iability to put the
puck in the net.
# "We dominated
tiLat game more than
vie have any other
al year," Berenson
salti. "Wejust didn't
convert our


chances. That's what we have to do."
Last weekend at Notre Dame, it
seemed the Wolverines were having
thetsame problem they had against the
Bukeyes. Though the game was closely
chepked and Michigan only had25 shots
on goal,there were plenty ofopportuni-
ties to score.
Michigan forward John Madden had
two breakaway chances in the first pe-
riod and didn't find the back of the net.
Warren Luhning, Kevin Hilton and
Brendan Morrison couldn't capatalize
on their quality chances, either.
"i'm glad we played well in a tight
garme, but I thought it wasn't as good a
game as we would like," Berenson said
aftor the game. "We had too many
chahces that we didn't score on."
Oerenson was much happier last Sat-
urday at Illinois-Chicago. Michigan had
no trouble scoring against the Flames,
blo ving them out, 12-0.
I thought we put in some of the
chances we didn't (against Notre
Dame)," Berenson said. "We had bal-
anced scoring, and it was iice to see us
convert well."

Things have changed for the Michigan
women's swimming and diving team.
After a full season of workouts and
meets, things are starting to come
around for the Wolverines.
Given that Michigan has only its three
most important meets left, the swim-
mers and divers can see the proverbial
light at the end of the tunnel.
The Wolverines will compete in the
Big Ten Championships next week in
After that, March will see Michigan
travel to the Olympic trials in India-
napolis and compete in the NCAA
Championships in Ann Arbor.
With the next month and a half's
schedule, the Wolverines find them-
selves in a prime position to vault into
the No. I spot in the women's swim-
ming world.
Michigan is currently ranked No. 2
- right behind Stanford.
While a strong showing at the Big
Tens probably will not vault the team
into the top spot (the Wolverines have
already lost to Stanford this season), a
winning performance at the NCAAs
will give the team its first ever national
A sizeable Michigan contingent trav-
elling to the Olympics this summer will
also garner the program a great deal of
national recognition and respect.

Men's swimming
Throughout the regular season, the
members and coaches of the Michigan
men's swimming and diving team have
downplayed the significance of any one
meet, saying it was simply preparation
for the big competitions at the end of the

John Madden and Michigan made their chances count against the Flames.

This weekend, the Wolverines will
compete in the first of those late season
meets that really matter when they host
the three-day Big Ten Conference
Although the meet doesn't officially
begin until noon tomorrow, Big Ten
foes already started filing in yesterday.
"All of the teams are arriving (Tues-
day)," Michigan coach Jon Urbanchek
said. "Basically, they are here to warm
up and get used to the facility."
The pool might take some getting
used to on the part of the Wolverines, in
addition to their opponents.
Due to the fact that the new $75,000
filter system is not working, the water
in the pool has turned from its normal
clear shade to a more Spartanesque
green color.
"(The status of the pool) is affecting
the swimmers more mentally than physi-
cally because the water seems a lot
denser; it's not clear," Urbanchek said.

Men's gymnastics
The Michigan men's gymnastics
team, which is in a rebuilding pro-
cess, has not been blessed with good
fortune in regardto its schedule.
Last weekend, the Wolverines
tumbled into Columbus to face Ohio
State, a national championship-cali-
ber squad. Michigan fared well, stay-
ing even for some time, but the Buck-
eyes finally pulled away. This week-
end, the Wolverines face Minnesota,
the reigning Big Ten champion.

Though the Wolverines (0-1 Big
Ten, 0-2 overall) haven't fared as well
in the early stages of the game, Michi-
gan has improved its team score. A
level of consistency has been main-
tained and the gymnasts are gaining
Michigan is No.16 in the nation,
but Darden is still looking for 100-
percent effort.
"We're not running on all the cylin-
ders," Darden said. "We have to tweak
the performances."
One bright spot is captain Chris Onuska.
Onuska was forced to end his season
early last year when he suffered an Achil-
les tendon injury. Onuska has made a
quick recovery and is now competing in
the all-around event.

A team can only face up to so much.
Not only is the Michigan women's
gymnastics team hosting two-time de-
fending NCAA champion Utah this
weekend, the Wolverines are battling
a host of injuries that have put them in
a difficult situation.
Out of a 12-gymnast roster, six are
bothered by injury. How many will be
healthy by this weekend is a question
only time will tell.

only three seniors on the Wolverines,

The Wolverines lost, and the
Michiganians hugged.
Kenyon Murray and Mon'ter Glasper
could not have been happier. The two
Michigan natives, now senior
Hawkeyes, were beaming with pride
after defeating Michigan, 62-55.
"For me and for Mon'ter it means a
lot," said Murray, a former Battle Creek
Central star and 1992
Mr. Basketball for
Michigan. "I don't
have any words to tell_
you how much it BSe
means to come in and Notebok
get this."N ook
Glasper was equally
"I can't explain the
feeling," said the
Albion native. "I'm so happy. That is
the most beautiful thing I have ever
The two had never won in Crisler
Arena. Last year, the Hawkeyes took
the Wolverines to double overtime be-
fore falling, 83-82.
"We have been through a lot at Iowa,"
Murray said. "A lot of ups, a lot of
Iowa coach Tom Davis had no prob-
lem admitting that this game meant
more to some Hawkeyes than for oth-
"I'm more happy for Kenyon and
Mon'ter than anybody," he said. "It
means an awful lot to come back your
senior year like that."
Not that it was lockedup. Davis wasn't
happy with his team when it allowed its
lead to dwindle to five late in the game.
"Coach told us, 'Do you want to give
the game away?"' Murray said. "We're
like, 'No.' We made some bad plays,
but we came away with the win."
WHITE OUT: Albert White started af-
ter coming off the bench the past two
games. But it was the bench where
White spent most of the day.
The freshman forward played just I I
minutes, including one in the second
half. He shot one for four for two points

and did not grab a rebound.
White was at a loss to explain why
coach Steve Fisher didn't play him more..
"I don't know," he said. "I couldn't
even tell you really. He just playe&
other guys."
WARD IN: White wasn't the only
Michigan player to spend significant
time on the bench. But it's safe to say no
Wolverine was as please with his seat
as Jerod Ward was.
Ward, who tore the anterior cruciate
and medial collateral ligaments in his
right knee in December, had not sat
with the team during a game since the
surgery. He said he did not want to sit
there while his mobility was so limited.
"Tonight when Fish jumped back. I
had to jump back," Ward said. "I
wouldn't have been able to jump back
(a few weeks ago)."
Ward said that despite the loss, h
was pleased to be with his teammates
"It just feels good to be back on the
sideline watching the team," he said.
MORTON: SeniorNeal Morton,aformer
walk-on, had arguably his best game as a
collegian. He only played four minutes
and didn't score, but his presence helped
inspire the Wolverines to a 7-2 run, which
put them back in the game.
"I'm glad I got an opportunity to give
a little spark, to get a little emotiov
going," Morton said. "But a loss is a,
loss. No one shines when you lose."
FOUL SHOT-LESS: Michigan didn't
shoot a single free throw until 13:30
was left in the game. The Wolverines
were seven for 10 on the game, thei
fewst shots and attempts from the line.

Andre Woolridge threw the ball at
Travis Conlan while walking off the
floor for a timeout.
Woolridge was rewarded with a tech-
nical foul.
Despite these two bonehead mistakes,
the Wolverines couldn't get closer than
five points the rest of the way.
At his postgame press conference,
Michigan coach Steve Fisher didn't
have much to say.
He sat down, gave an opening state-
ment, asked if anyone had any ques-
tions and - before a soul could answer
- got up and left.
Perhaps he was a little nervous.
Because he knows that when the
phone rings this week, it could be a

tiations in the hopes of offering Michi-
gan a berth.
