When you think of Tyrone Wheatley,
what comes to mind?
Football, for starters. The 1993Rose
Bowl, probably. Maybe the New York
Giants, Wheatley's pro team."
How about designer clothes?
Believe it or not, when Wheatley vis-
ited Ann Arbor yesterday, it wasn't
reminisce about his glory days ,a
Wolverine, and it wasn't to discuss his
future in the NFL.
He was selling clothes at Michigan
Book and Supply.
Figuratively, of course. The last thing
Wheatley needs to do is supplement his
income by hawking t-shirts on the cor-
ner of State Street and North
Wheatley spent two hours at
Michigan Book and Supply yesterg
to promote a new line of clothing
designed by Perry Ellis. The Collegiate
sportswear line, bearing the Michigan
logo, is sold nowhere else in the coun-
try. Wheatley hasarepresented Perry
Ellis for about a year.

'M' spikers struggle
'past Toledo in four
By Kevin Kasiborski
Daily Sports Writer
Earlier this season the Michigan
women's volleyball team was able to
.step up its game and compete against
Last night, it was Toledo who was
keeping up with the Wolverines.
Michigan, finally playing a match
they were favored to win, survived
sloppy play in the opening two games
to top the Rockets, 15-12, 13-15, 15-5,
"The first two games were long and
ugly," Michigan coach Greg
Giovanazzi said. "They might look
good statistically, but from a coaches
standpoint, they were pretty tough."
This is the second win in a row for
the Wolverines, raising their record to
2-4. Toledo, which had been victorious
in its last three matches entering
Tuesday, dropped to 4-4 on the year.
After a dominating performance in
recording their first win of the season
against Georgia on Saturday, and a
coming off a stretch during which four
of the five teams they played were
ranked; a little letdown by the
Wolverines might have been expected.
But Giovanazzi credited the Rockets
for playing well.
"Toledo played a really good match
against us," he said.
This was the second time Giovanazzi
i has coached against the Rockets Reed
Sunahara, his former player. Sunahara
played for UCLA when Giovanazzi
was a Bruins assistant.
Last year, the Wolverines beat
Toledo in three straight games in Ann
Arbor. The Rockets have never beaten
Michigan in 10 matches.
Despite not always playing pretty,
several Michigan players set new
Junior middle blocker Sarah Jackson
led the Michigan offense with 20 kills
(a career high) and a .444 hitting per-
centage. Senior captain Shareen Luze
added 19 kills (tyin gher career high)
and 14 digs and was Michigan's best
player all night according to her coach.
"Shareen carried us passing and hit-
ting'" Giovanazzi said. "She has been
the rock for us this season. Toledo
served her a lot of balls, and she hit or
passed every ball."
Michigan set a new season high with
84 kills as a team.
Setting up all the Michigan hitters
for most of those kills was junior
Linnea Mendoza, who had 51 assists.
Mendoza needs 347 more assists to
break Tarnisha Thompson's career
record of 2,619.
Senior Erin McGovern had 12
assists of her own. She is currently
fourth on the all-time assist list.
Sophomore middle blocker Linsey
Ebert did well disrupting the Toledo
attack with a career high six total
blocks, with one solo and five block

Whalers ink former Michigan captain Halko
By Alan Goldenbach
Daily Sports Editor
When Michigan hockey coach Red
Berenson was asked last year about
whether or not he would hire defense-
man Steven Halko, the Michigan skip-
per said, "In a minute."
Well, the Hartford Whalers agree.
Except their decision took a bit longer
Hartford signed the former Michigan
captain to a multi-year contract yester-
day, four years after they selected him
in the 10th round (225th overall) in the
1992 NHL Entry Draft. In keeping with
the Whalers' team policy, terms of the
contract were undisclosed.
"We are pleased to sign Steve in time
for our training camp," Hartford Vice
President and General Manager Jim
Rutherford said in a press release yes-
terday. "He has just completed a very
successful career at the University of
Michigan and certainly adds depth to
our organization's defense."
Neither Halko nor his agent were
available for comment yesterday.
The 6-foot-1, 183-pound Halko
reported to the Whalers' training camp
in New Haven, Conn., yesterday.
Hartford opens its pre-season next
Saturday in Ottawa against the
Senators. If he dresses for that contest,
the Bolton, Ontario, native should
receive quite a bit of support from the
Last season, as a senior, Halko
scored four goals to go along with 16
assists and posted a plus-23 rating. In
his four years at Michigan he tallied 61
points (eight goals, 53 assists) and 86
penalty minutes. After missing his first
game, he never missed another during
his career while playing in a team-
record 153 consecutive games.
Halko was a first team All-CCHA
selection after the 1994-95 season and
earned second team honors last year.
He was honored by the Dekers Club
three times with the Vic Heyliger
Award as Michigan's top defenseman.
In other Michigan hockey alumni
news, former center Kevin Hilton, the
team's second-leading scorer last year,
is practicing with the Detroit Red
Wings, the team that owns his draft
rights, in hopes of being offered a con-
tract. However, with Detroit's depth at
center, Hilton will need to make a
strong impression on Wings' coach
