game, not power forwards.
Otherwise, what happened last night
will happen repeatedly throughout this
Big Ten season - opponents will pick
the best size mismatch - most likely
Blanchard against fill-in-the-blank -
and pound the ball in continuously until
Michigan gives up and doubles down.
Vignier doesn't get enough credit for
his defensive effort. He has well-docu-
mented problems on the offensive end,
and he is limited in that respect. Still,
with the guards and Asselin handling
most of the scoring, Vignier wouldn't
necessarily be required to pour in 15
points.
Defensively, Vignier is sound. When
Asselin sat on the bench with four fouls
against Georgia Tech, it was Vignier who
quietly rode the storm against Alvin
Jones and Jason C'ollier. Michigan won
that game, in case anyone has forgotten.
Ellerbe is correct in saying the reason
Michigan lost was because of a lack of
execution. But every win can't be 98-84
- there has to be some defense amidst
all that fast-break flash.

If Ellerbe thinks his lineup problems
will go away by resetting the scoreboard
to 0-0 this Saturday against Purdue, then
he's in for his first 0-2 Big Ten start as
Michigan coach.

same, as the Wolverines continued to
struggle on both ends.
Michigan tried changing defenses. But
zones and backcourt pressure couldn't
halt the Minnesota onslaught. The virus
spread further, as the Gophers turned on
their running jets with six straight fast-
break points to extend their lead into the
upper twenties.
Freshmen Jamal Crawford and LaVell
Blanchard both had their worst efforts of
the season. Crawford shot a dismal 4-for-
11 from the field and committed four
turnovers.
Blanchard struggled too, fouling out
when more than 10 minutes remained in
the game, and shooting 0-for-4 on the
night with one free throw.
The lone bright spot for the Wolverines
was when they were able to drive the ball
inside. Kevin Gaines had 15 points, Leon
Jones added 11. Both had success when
Michigan was able to avoid the tempta-
tion of a frantic outside shot and instead
drove to the basket.
Brandon Smith, who returned to
Michigan's lineup this past Sunday
against Colorado State, continued his
recovery, netting nine points on 7-of-10
free-throw shooting.
Sophomore Joel Pryzbilla tallied a
team-high 16 points while leading
Minnesota's charge on the boards. The

Gophers outrebounded the Wolverines
47-35 for the game, including 11-2 on the
offensive end in the first 20 minutes.
"I think we were the aggressor,"
Minnesota coach Dan Monson said. "We
pushed the ball on them. Our defense was
able to open it up for us. We played
extremely hard from the first guy to the
last guy. To have the.best game of the
year, that's got to happen."
Michigan reduced the deficit below 20
in the final minutes and even gave back-
up senior guard Darius Taylor time.
WHERE'S THE SHOOTING?: Michigan,
which has averaged better than 50 percent
shooting from the field this season, shot a
dismal 39 percent against the Gophers.
Last night marked only the third time the
Wolverines have shot worse than 40 per-
cent -the other two coming in a tight 66-
64 win over Detroit and an 89-71 loss to
Boston College.
"It wasn't just about shooting, it was
about execution." Smith said. "We took
some poor shots because we couldn't exe-
cute."
ANDERSON UPDATE: Leland Anderson
is expected to return in the third or fourth
week of January, Michigan trainer Steve
Stricker said yesterday. Anderson hasn't
played since Michigan's home loss at
Duke, after he was hit in the right leg.
Sticker says the team is letting him rest.
"We want to be cautious,"Stricker said.
"We said 'Let's give it a week to make
sure he doesn't get hit and have all this
happen over again."'
