Hoosiers must deal with
Johns this time around
/lichigan center to square off with Indiana's Barnes

By Sharat Raju
Daily Sports Writer
The last time the Michigan women's basketball team
played Indiana, the Wolverines didn't have Pollyana
The last time the Wolverines played the Hoosiers, they
lost, 72-59.
This time, Michigan (4-5 Big Ten,
12-6. overall) has Pollyana Johns
available for the trip to Indiana (4-5, 4
4-8) on Sunday.Ths
And this time .... to
"That's a whole 'nuther ball game, ave 4
right there, (with Johns healthy)," -
Michigan coach Sue Guevara said. Wlm Pol
Johns, Michigan's 6-foot-2 center, J h s
has been arguably the most consis-
tent player for the Wolverines for the
past three seasons.
She averages a double-double - Michigan wo
4.4 points and 11.3 rebounds per COi
me --and leads the Big Ten in
The Wolverines like to go to Johns
early offensively so that the rest of the team can feed off
her success in the post.
So do you think her absence was missed in their previ-
ous' meeting with Indiana?


Also keep in mind that the Hoosiers boast 6-foot-5
center Quacy Barnes - the leading shot blocker in the
Big Ten (4.22 blocks per game) who scored 18 points in
Johns' absence.
"This time, she'll have to contend with Pollyana
Johns," Guevara said.
Other than the fact that Johns will be suited up for this
Sunday's game, other things differ
from the last meeting between the
two teams. The most obvious dif-
Me, ;$ference is the venue.
The Wolverines dropped their
ontend last game against Indiana at home.
They certainly haven't forgotten
vana that.
"We look at that 'M' down on
the floor (at Crisler Arena), and
- Sue Guevara that's ours," Guevara said. "They
en's basketball were the first team to beat us at
home. We gave that one to them,
oh on Indiana's now we're going to go to Assembly
Quacy Barnes Hall and take one from them."
Not as obvious in this game is
the improved play Guevara sees in
"We're playing much better now than when we played
Indianatthe first time, "Guevara said. "We're gettingmore
penetration on the perimeter than what we did before.
Defensively, we're playing better."
Guevara might also unleash a new weapon in her
team's arsenal.
"We've put in another defense which we haven't really
shown," Guevara said.
That never-before-seen defense might present a prob-
lem for the Hoosiers.
The Wolverines have effectively used their current
full-court 'press in past games, so a new scheme might
give Indiana even more fits.
Ordinarily, the Wolverines - as do all Big Ten teams
- have two games each weekend, one on Friday and
another on Sunday. This week the Wolverines are fortu-
nate to have Friday off.
"I hope the rest is really going to help," Guevara said.
"Traveling just wears on you."
The Wolverines are aware that the traveling isn't over
yet. After returning from Iowa last Sunday and heading
over to Indiana this Sunday, the Wolverines will finish up
at Penn State next Friday.
The game against Indiana turns out to be a very important
one for both teams. Indiana and Michigan are tied in sev-
The Wolverines are barely trailing Penn State and
Iowa, both tied for fifth, and are not that far away from
fourth-place Purdue.
Guevara hopes that the next couple of weeks can push
her team into the top-half of the conference.

Akisha Franklin was forced to sit out Michigan's last home game, because she had a tooth removed. Fortunately for her, the
Wolverines have a day off this Friday to work on certain areas of their game. The Wolverines return to action Sunday at
Indiana, where they may employ a new defense to avenge an earlier loss at the hands of the Hoosiers. If the Wolverines' my
tery defense can match the intensity of their past full-court press, Indiana could be in for a long game.

unday, Pollyanna Johns will face the Big Ten's leading shot-
ocker - Quacy Bames - for the first time this season.
