MICHIGAN LEADERS

The two-dee

Vigner-t hauls down
16, as 'M' sends
Aussies down under
By Josh Kleinbaum
Daily Sports Editor
If there were any doubts about what the Michigan men's basketball team's
game plan is going to be this season, the Wolverines made it abundantly clear
in the first five minutes of Wednesday's 80-48 exhibition victory over the
North Melbourne Giants.
The game plan? Three-pointers.
Five of Michigan's first six baskets were from long range, and all six were
either by Louis Bullock or Robbie Reid.
By the time Brandon Smith took a Bullock pass and laid it in -just less
than five minutes into the game - for the first points scored by someone
other than a member of Michigan's guard tandem, the Wolverines had a 20-4
lead.
The Giants inexplicably left Michigan's two sharpshooters wide open from
beyond the arc so often that Michigan coach Brian Ellerbe said that it was "a
distraction. When you're a shooter, you want to have something coming at
you."
For his fourth or fifth long-range shot," Reid said. "He got a look in the
corner that was so wide open that "I was like, 'Wow, this is nice."'
Bullock tied his career high with 27 points thanks to 8-for-10 shooting
from long range, and Reid added 16 while shooting 4-for-9 from beyond the
arc.
But what pleased Ellerbe the most was not the play of his guards, but of
his frontcourt, where there are more question marks than anything else.
Junior Peter Vignier, starting for the first time in his Michigan career,
grabbed 16 rebounds and scored seven points.
"It was my job," Vignier said of rebounding. "It's what I was supposed to
do, so I went out and did it."
Forward Josh Asselin recorded a double-double with 13 points and 13
boards, while adding five blocks.
The Wolverines had a considerable size advantage over the Australian-
based Giants, with both Vignier and Asselin towering over their Aussie coun-
terparts. The Wolverines out-rebounded the Giants, 54-38.
Freshman guard/forward Leon Jones struggled from floor, hitting only one
of his nine shots, but was excellent defensively.
"He made some plays that you don't see sophomores make," Ellerbe said.
Despite the lopsided victory, Ellerbe saw a lot of room for improvement.
The offense has to execute better, cutting back on turnovers, and the defense
has to tighten up some holes.
One of the Wolverines' biggest problems may have been lack of concen-
tration. After holding the Giants to just 18 first-half points, Michigan added
30 in the second stanza.
"Once we took control of the game, mentally we got a little lackadaisical,"
Ellerbe said. "We spent a little too much time focusing on the clock (instead
of) focusing on the game."
The Wolverines did an excellent job containing Melbourne point guard
Antoine Howard. Howard, who scored 18 points against both Indiana and
Purdue earlier this week, managed just five last night. In fact, no Giant
scored in double figures - their leading scorer, forward Luke Egan, had just
nine.

EAST LANSING - "I was just
really happy to get that game over
with," said a relieved Michigan State
setter Christie Landry.
Landry, who said after the last
intrastate match that the Spartans "had
to kick (Michigan) while they're
down " didn't do much kicking as the
Michigan volleyball team almost
pulled off a stunning come-from-
behind, five-game upset of No. 16

Michigan State on Wednesday.
Michigan got off to a slow start, los-
ing game one, 15-8. The beginning of
the match was close as the two teams
traded side outs, but the Spartans crept
to a 7-2 lead. Michigan came back to
take an 8-7 lead, but Michigan State
scored the rest of the points save one,
to win.
The second game was even worse
for the Wolverines. Michigan State
dominated to win, 15-3.
The third game was a complete

opposite of the first two, as Michigan
coach Greg Giovanazzi switched set-
ters inserting freshman Shannon
Melka. The lineup change worked as
the Wolverines took a 5-1 lead.
Michigan State came back to within
one, 8-7, until Michigan scored five
more points tom make the score 13-8.
Senior outside hitter Linsey Ebert
served the game point for the
Wolverines to win, 15-11. Michigan
held the Spartans to a .023 attack per-
centage while registering a .279 clip

U

of their own.
Game four was a mirror image of
game three as the Wolverines and
Spartans were tied at three, exchang-
ing side outs until Michigan scored
the game's next six points.
Michigan State came back and
served three straight points to go
ahead 6-9. Michigan served the next
five points to end the Spartans' come-
back, and held off a smaller Michigan
State rally to win, 15-8, tying the
match at two games apiece.

Senior Karen Chase was on fire in
the two victories; she fired six of her
18 kills to become Michigan's all-time
kills leader with 1,126.
The fifth game saw the two teams
trading points, and neither could pull
ahead. Michigan State rallied to take a
9-5 lead. The Wolverines crawled back
to within two, 11-9. But it was too lit-
tle, too late, as Michigan State scored
the final four points of the game to
avoid the upset, 15-9 and close out the
match with a 15-9 win.
