How tough is Big Ten volleyball'?
Consider this: Ohio State is ranked No.
14 in the nation, The Buckeyes confer-
ence record: 4-3.
The Michigan women's volleyball
team is taking on Ohio State tonight in
Columbus, and tomorrow the Wolverines
will visit fifth-ranked Penn State, contin-
uing their quest to play every top-25 team
this season.
Ohio State (4-3 Big Ten, 15-3 overall)
and Penn State (5 2, 16-2) will be the
eighth and ninth ranked teams Michigan
(2-4, 7-10) has faced this year. After this
weekend nearly half of the Wolverines'
mhatches will have been against teams
ranked in the top-25,
Michigan has never won in Columbus
(0-15) or in State College (0-6).
"They are two pretty different teams,"
Michigan coach Greg Giovanazi said.
"We need to work on our side-out ;game,
staying steady when they are serving.
That's where we really broke down (last
Saturday)."
The Buckeyes have defeated Michigan
17 consecutive times dating back to
1987, and have a 30-4 lead in the all-time
series. Qhio State beat Penn State in five
games Wednesday, 8-17, 10-11, 14-10,
17 10, 17-15, in a match played using a
special format for television.
The Lady Lions were No, 2 in the polls
until they lost to Michigan State last
Friday, and will probably drop further
avter their loss to the Buckeyes. But they
are still a very formidable opponent.
Michigan's only win against Penn
State in 12 tries was a come-from-behind,
five-game victory in the final regular
season match of last season. The Lady
Lions were ranked No. 8 at the time, and
remain the highest-ranked team
Michigan has ever defeated.
Last Friday, the Wolverines nearly
matched that record by defeating ninth-

ranked Wisconsin in three straight, 15-
12, 1'5-7, 15-12.
A team can't relax at all a ter a win in
the Big Ten, thoughI, as Michigan discou-
ered Saturday. Minnesota jumped out in
front of the Wolverine~s early and went on
to a 15-12, 15-6, 15-1 1 victory.
"We blocked very poory,' Giovanazzi
said. "We hlit high numbers but, we did-
n't do the little things against Minnesota
that we did against Wisconsin."
This weekend, Michigan will need the
total team effort it got against Wisconsin.

The Michigan offense is led by sopho-
more Karen Chase, who tops the team
with 202 total kills and a 3.65 kills per,
game average. The other leading
Wolverine attackers are junior Sarah
Jackson (3.38 kpg) and senior Shareen
Luze (3.07 kpg).
On defense, sophomore Linsey Ebert
(57 blocks) and Jackson (49 blocks) will
try to close down the hitting lanes, while
Luze (138 digs) and Jeanine Szczesniak
(137 digs) go after any ball that gets
through.
