By the time the ball drops in Times
square to ring in the new year, the
Michigan women's basketball team will
Piave begun its Big Ten season.
They will not see, action in Crisler
Arena until 1999, and the Wolverines
will have to learn how to be as success-
ful on the road as they have been at
home, posting a perfect record.
The women's basketball team first
made a trip to Cincinnati this past
Sunday, and will continue its travels for
the next three games.
Michigan's next voyage will be to
Bowling Green, Ohio, where it will take
on Bowling Green at 7 p.m. tonight.
The Falcons are currently 4-3 after a
victory against Detroit Mercy, who
Michigan also defeated earlier in the
season, and a loss to Wisconsin.
But the Wolverines are expected to
match up well against the Falcons.
"We are about the same size,"
Michigan coach Sue Guevara said.
~They are a cross between Cincinnati
and Alabama-Birmingham. They are a

very fundamentally sound team who
likes to run like us'
And thus far Michigan's running
game has been dominant. The
Wolverines have outhustled and
outscored their opponents, by an aver-
age of almost 20 points a game.
The Michigan defense is also one of
the top defenses in the conference. It
averages four more rebounds then its
opponents on the season. Junior Stacey
Thomas also leads the league in steals.
Like the Wolverines, the Falcons
have a fairly young team. They also
have a new coach. But as Michigan has
proven, youth can gain experience very
"We have been able to give opportu-
nities to all of the kids this season,"
Guevara said. "Inexperience is not a
weakness for us anymore."
But the fact that the Wolverines are
not playing with a full roster may be.
Michigan will be without freshman
center Raina Goodlow, who is out with
a knee injury for the third straight game.
Goodlow had been starting for the
Wolverines and was a major contributor

Tonight's game
Who: Michigan vs. Bowling Green
When: 7 pm.
Notables: The Wolverines are looking for
their sixth straight win, and second win on
their four-game road trip. Michigan's Big Ten
opener is atIndiana on Dec.28. They will be
looking to improve on lastosason's BigTen
finish, and return to the NCAATournament
on both ends of the floor. She had a
career-high 12 points in Michigan's win
over Detroit, and grabbed six boards in
Michigan's win over Colorado.
Heather Oesterle will start at center
in Goodlow's place. Oesterle has been
steady in place of Goodlow. The loss of
Goodlow is nothing new, since the
Wolverines have been without a full
team for most of the year. Ann Lemire
was out on a three-game suspension at
the beginning of the year, and Kenisha
Walker also just returned after being
out of the lineup with an injury.
"We certainly hope to have a full
team once the Big Ten season starters,"
