It's the calm after the storm for the
Michigan softball team. Literally.
The storm was a snow storm that hit
Iowa City this past weekend, canceling
the second game of a twinbill scheduled
for Sunday afternoon against Iowa.
But the storm was also the bad luck
that bombarded the team this past week-
end, leaving it without two of its best
players - pitcher/third baseman Sara
Griffin and first baseman Traci Conrad
--after an infield collision in Saturday's
8-2 loss the Hawkeyes. Griffin and
Conrad collided while trying to field a
sacrifice bunt in the sixth inning of the
game. While Conrad is listed as day-to-
day, Griffin is likely done for the season.
"I almost got involved in it too,
because I went to dive for it," Michigan
pitcher Kelly Holmes said. As the team
collects itself and settles down for its 2
p.m. doubleheader at Purdue today, it
sees what it has left - only two pitchers.
Holmes has been in this situation
before. Last year, the senior shared the
pitching duties with Griffin, as she did
with Kelly Kovach her freshman year.
But this is a new experience for fresh-
man Jamie Gillies, who has been the
third pitcher in the rotation all season
and has seen predominantly relief work.
"I'm just going to do my part, pitch
my game, and do what I can to help the
team," Gillies said. "There is not added
pressure. It's just time for me to step it
up." Holmes and Gillies will have to
shoulder the bulk of the burden, splitting
the starts and having to pitch complete
games most of the time.
"Me and Jamie will have to make sure
we're both ready to go all the time,
because if one of us gets in trouble, the
other one has to come in," Holmes said.
"Even if I've just pitched a whole game,
if Jamie gets in trouble, I have to be
ready to go." Griffin's loss affects more
than just Holmes and Gillies. Griffin's
15-2 record and 0.99 ERA made her the
ace of the staff, and the whole team will
have to compensate for her loss.
Crew steers off course

At this weekend's San Diego Classic,
the Michigan women's crew team want-
ed to prove that it could compete with
the top crews in the country.
The Wolverines needed to finish in
the top three to make the grand final.
With 250 meters remaining, Michigan
was trailing only Washington and
Massachusetts when an oar became
caught under the boat, sending it off of
the course and ending any hope of mak-
ing the grand final.
"We were having the race of our
lives," rower Jeannette Stawski said.
"We were up on Yale (for third place)
when we went outside of our lane and hit
a buoy and stopped dead in the water"
The Wolverines recovered from their
earlier miscue to finish second in the
petit final, trailing Stanford by less than
a second and finishing ahead of arch
Despite not making the grand final,
Michigan's performance was an encour-
aging sign going into next weekend's
Big Ten championships.
"It was a stroke of bad luck," Labadie
said. "We know that we're right there, so
we know that we have the potential to be

There's certainly no comparison
between him and (former
Wolverines) Chris Webber or Juwan
Howard. Webber and Howard are in a
whole different solar system than
Bill Carter, Taylor's coach at
Detroit Henry Ford High School,
said he wishes Taylor would stay as
well, but for different reasons.
"I was hoping he would stay for his
final year," Carter said. "He's a
tremendous NBA prospect, but I want-
ed to see him stay for personal reasons.
"Maybe I shouldn't feel this way,
but I think he would benefit as a per-
son to stay, get closer to graduating,
maybe stay until the team got better."
Asked if Taylor were the type of
person to take correspondence
courses and graduate on time as
Howard did, Carter said "I don't
If Taylor does decide to enter the
draft, he'll be the ninth Wolverine to
leave school early for the NBA and
the fourth since 1994, when both
Howard and Jalen Rose gave up their
final years of eligibility at Michigan.
Taylor averaged 12.4 points and
6.2 rebounds per game this season,
including career-highs of 28 points
against Northwestern and the 15-
rebound career-best against Florida
