There are a number of reasons why
Notre Dame exhibited their frustra-
tion so flagrantly in their 5-2 loss to
Whether it was the pressure of
upcoming exams or having to make a
midweek trip to Ann Arbor, the Irish
made no attempt to hide their emo-
tions yesterday afternoon.
'I could tell that (Aaron Talarico)
was mentally vulnerable and I tried
to exploit it," Danny McCain said.
Sophomore Ben Cox agreed.
"Even in the first set that I could tell
that (Andrew Laflin) wasn't into it,"
After dropping the doubles point
for the third straight match,
Michigan won five of six singles
matches - including at the No. 2
position where John Long ended his
seven match skid.
"It is very easy to win when you
are on a big winning streak, but it is
much harder if you are on a losing
streak," Long said.
Long did not make it look very
hard as he cruised to a 6-3, 6-1 vic-
tory - and it wasn't that close. Long
used a powerful serve and an accu-
rate forehand to blow past a dejected
Matt Daly. As Long continued the
onslaught, Daly's shoulders slumped
lower and lower.
At No. 3 singles, Henry Beam
needed three sets to get past Casey
Smith - who let he crowd know
how he felt.
At the end of the match - after he
hit a forehand into the middle of the
net - Smith threw his racquet across
the court and yelled at the line judge.
"He thought that I had distracted
him after I hit my volley, but there
was just nothing he could do about
it," Beam said.
At No. 4 and No. 5 singles,
McCain and Cox used their oppo-
nents weaknesses against them.
At No. 4, McCain saw that he
could take advantage of his oppo-
nent's mental game.
"My goal was to get inside his

Latest: Michigan will look to follow-
up its performance against Notre
Damewith an encore against the
head and just swim around in there,"
Down 4-1, McCain began talking
to Talarico and the crowd. After
every winner he hit, McCain looked
at Talarico and yelled, "Come on!"
McCain continued to use this
strategy en route to winning the first
set in a tiebreaker. He then won the
second set by relentlessly breaking

'M' advances to finals

After months of anticipation, the
moment the Michigan women's
gymnastics team has been waiting
for finally arrived last night. At the
NCAA Championships in Boise,
Idaho, the team initiated its pursuit of
the national title that has been a goal
for the entire season.
Unfortunately, that initiation did
not go as well as the Wolverines had
hoped. No. 1 Michigan recorded a
