Sophomore guard Louis Bullock left
practice early as a precaution after
reporting he was "feeling woozy."

"(Ward) misses too many lay-ups, as
big as he is," Fisher said. "We want him
to get in there and finish in traffic."
Fisher speculated that Ward may still

Picture this. You are a freshman on the
Michigan hockey team. Before the sea-
son begins, you take a look at your
schedule to see the first few games. You
glance it over and spot Lake Superior as
your first conference game.
But wait! No! You see the asterisk on
the bottom of the schedule and realize
it's a non-conference game. So you scroll
down the schedule a bit more to see your
first conference battle.
You think it may be a duel with
Bowling Green, Michigan State or
maybe Miami (Ohio). You figure that
your first game at Yost Ice Arena is
sometime within the first five games.
Then you see that your first true home
game is Nov. 8 against Ohio State due to
the renovation of the arena.
So you point your finger up to the
beginning of the schedule and find out
that the first game in your CCHA career
is against none other than ... Alaska-
That's right. In addition to playing a
team that is not in the lower 48 states,
you will be going there to play the game.
That's the position the Wolverines
find themselves in for the next two
You might as well be in Russia. The
Wolverines will be closer to Asia than
the U.S. mainland.
In their second year in the conference,
the Nanooks (0-3 CCHA, 0-5 overall)
host the Wolverines in a pair of games,
tonight and tomorrow night, at the
Carlson Center in Fairbanks. Both
games begin at 7 p.m. Alaska time,
which is midnight, Ann Arbor time.
Kevin Magnuson, Andrew Merrick
and Sean Peach can say that they will be
the first Michigan freshmen to play a
conference game against Alaska-
Fairbanks in Alaska.
No. I Michigan (3-0) is outside the
mainland for the second time in team
history. The only other time the two
teams met in Alaska was in the first two
games of the 1993-94 season when the
Nanooks were not part of the CCHA.
The Wolverines won both games, 6-3
This season's nine-man senior class
was there. But it's not only the games the
seniors remember - it is the entire
"It was a real different lifestyle and
culture up there," Michigan's Harold
Schock said. "There were huge stuffed
bears in every restaurant."
The only things on this trip that are
stuffed is the players' and coaches' lug-
gage. Michigan took the half-day flight
to Alaska on Tuesday morning, packing
plenty of warm clothes and school
When the Wolverines wake up in
Alaska today, it will be a shock to their
systems. The players and coaches will
walk outside to feel below-zero temper-
atures, which will rise to a whopping 15
