Freshmen pick up
slack in recent games
'M' improves despite*
two weekend losses

'At the start of the 1998-99 season,
most knew that the four freshmen on the
Michigan women's basketball team
would individually impact the team.
But no one knew just how much.
Recently with a couple of key veterans in
shooting slumps, -------------
the freshmen have Basketball
had to step it up.
Forward's Ruth Notdoo
Kipping and Raina -------------
Goodlow have been forced to carry a
mljority of the team's burden in the post.
As of late, they've responded well.
Kipping recorded a career-high 15
points against Wisconsin on Friday, lead-
ing all Michigan scorers. Second in scor-
ing in that game was freshman guard
In the early days of the season, Ingram
took°a lot of shots and scored, averaging
nearly 14 points per game through the
first six games. But over the next seven
games, Ingran's productivity dropped to
After last weekend, her magic touch
seems to have returned. Ingram scored
13 points against the Badgers, and along
with Penn State's Clara Carter, led all
scorers with 16 points Sunday.
Ingram seems to be adjusting well to
her new role.
"Anyone can be aleader (on the floor)
and get the job done," Ingram said. "If
someone gets upset with me for tryingto
be a leader, then I want them to take it out
on the other team."
WHEN THE GOING GETS TOUGH: If the
old adage were applied to the Michigan
women's basketball team, it would seem
that now would be a good time for the
tough to get going.
"Webster's New Collegiate
Dictionary"defines the adjective tough
as something characterized by severity
or uncompromising determination.
A week ago, after the Wolverines were
solidly defeated by No. 5 Louisiana Tech
and by a weak Minnesota team, that ele-
ment of toughness was called into ques-
But even though last weekend's games
against Wisconsin and Penn State both
ended in losses, it seemed as if the tough
finally got going, albeit in different
"It's nice to see my old team back,"
Michigan coach Sue Guevara said after
Sunday's loss. "We played with intensity,
heart, and emotion without a lot of play-
ers. Three times we made major runs
back, we just couldn't get over the

challenged. We will win a game in
By Stephanie Offen

January brought blizzards and snow
advisories to Ann Arbor. But for the..
Michigan women's basketball team, the
beginning of the new year brought more
than the typical northern weather woes.
Michigan's record nine-game winning
streak of December 1998 turned into a
five-game losing streak in '99, with
another two losses this weekend.
Even though there haven't been any
victories in the team's recent past, the
Wolverines are finally beginning to seea
bright spot to their season.
On Sunday, against Penn State, the
No. 20 team in the nation, Michigan was
able to break the Nittany Lions' press
numerous times, and overcome deficits
to pull within four points with three min-
utes left, before losing 74-66.
"We played with the No. 20 team in
the country," Michigan coach Sue
Guevara said. "And we only had eight
kids to play with"
Freshman Heather Oesterle and senior
Ann Lemire did not play in Sunday's
game. Oesterle will be out for at least 10
days with a stress fracture in her foot.
Lemire was suspended for a team viola-
tion for the weekend games and is
expected to return today.
"Without them, we are definitely
missing depth," sophomore Anne
Thorius said. "Lemire and Gesterle are
the only players off the bench who con-
tribute on the perimeter."
But these were not the only two play-
ers from which Michigan was lacking
contribution. Junior Stacey Thomas, the
team's leading scorer, only contributed
six points in the loss to Penn State, h
lowest output this season. Thomas shot
3-for-14 from field goal range. She also
only went 4-17 against Wisconsin.
"When Stacey Thomas goes 3-for-14
with six points it's really hard to win a
game' Guevara said. "With her strug-
gling from the floor, we need other peo-
ple to pick up that scoring."
It was two freshmen who picked up
the slack for Thomas. Ruth Kipping
scored a career- and team-high 15 points
against Wisconsin, and Ingram scorec
game-high 16 points against Penn State,
Thorius also continued to step up forthe
Wolverines, with 12 points and five
assists against Wisconsin, and 15 points
and four assists against Penn State.
It is these three players who lea
Michigan back to its winning attitude
this past weekend.
"Everyone on our team is determined
that we are not going to lose a lot mor
games:' Thorius said. "We have tW
mentality that losing is no fun."
The Wolverines came out with more
intensity then they had in the prior loss-
"We played so much better tonight
then we have the last couple of games",
Ingram said. "We've been talking about
coming out with a lot of emotion, and in
the second half we showed that."
Sophomore guard Anne Thorius scored 15 points in Sunday's game. But it wasn't
enough as the Wolverines fell 74-66 to Penn State.

"We've been talking about coming
out with emotion and intensity, and
in the second half we showed that,"
That intensity was evident with five
minutes left to play, as Ingram scored
on a layup to bring her team to within
nine points. Moments later, the 5-7
guard knocked down a 3-pointer to
bring the Crisler crowd to its feet.
Ingram drew a double-team on the
subsequent possession, only to
reversed the ball to an open Alison
Miller on the baseline, who tallied a
pair of her 12 points, bringing the
Wolverines to within six.
Though Michigan would cut the
Penn State lead to a mere four points
on a layup from Raina Goodlow, the
Nittany Lions would ultimately
prove to be too much in the late-
going as an untimely turnover and
foul sealed Michigan's fate, allowing
the visiting Lions to pull out of reach
Even in defeat, Guevara's faith in
her squad remains steadfast. She said
its performance Sunday in contending
against a nationally ranked opponent,
after losing to conference foe
Wisconsin, 71-65, on Friday, served as
a reminder of the type of team that
began the season as one of the most
highly touted groups in the Big Ten.
"We're a better team. I told them
there isn't anyone in this lockerroom
that shouldn't be confident in their
abilities," Guevara said. "I don't want
to see anyone's heads down. I don't
want to see any frowns."
After a weekend of struggle,
Guevara's confidence is shared by her
players as they gear up to host
Michigan State tomorrow.
"We're back with emotion," said
guard Anne Thorius, who finished the
game with 15 points. "We're going to
turn it around, we're sure about that.
And Ingram, Thorius's backcourt
partner, echoed her sentiments while
saying she was sure her team would

Michigan forwards Alison Miller, Raina Goodlow (32) and freshman Ruth Kipping
