Loss to Hoosiers clearly hurts

ALLISON CANTER/Daily
Heather Qesterle scored three points, but they weren't enough to prevent
Michigan's first Big Ten loss, a 77-72 defeat to Indiana.
Blackburn back for
bawith Spartans

By Michael Kern
Daily Sports Writer
BLOOMINGTON - It was clear
from Indiana's first possession that it
was not to going to be the Michigan
women's basketball team's night.
After a solid defensive effort from the
Wolverines had the shot clock winding
down, Indiana guard Rainey Alting
banked in a 3-pointer over three
Michigan players that rolled around the
rim before falling through.
Despite holding a seven-point lead
with 13:48 to play in the game,
Michigan fell to Indiana 77-72, bringing
its record to 2-1 in the Big Ten and 10-4
overall.
With two minutes to play in the game,
the Hoosiers (1-2, 6-8) led by 10 points
and appeared to be in command of the
game. But the Wolverines, playing with-
out injured point guard Anne Thorius
rallied, using full court pressure to score
nine straight points and cut the lead to
one with 46 seconds left.

The Latest Michigan hasn't won in West
Lafayette since 1994.

That was as close as Michigan would
get.
At the half, the Wolverines held just a
two-point lead over the Hoosiers despite
leading by as much as nine. But
Michigan came out strong to start the
second half, building its lead back to
seven.
Then, with 11 minutes to go, the
Wolverines just stopped scoring.
Over the next eight minutes, Michigan
did not score from the field as Indiana
went on a 17-3 run. With 8:15 to play,
Rachel Honegger scored to give the
Hoosiers their first lead since 15:33 in
the first half. They would not relinquish
that lead for the remainder of the game.
The loss for the Wolverines may turn
out to be a critical one come NCAA
Tournament selection time. Michigan's
hopes of making the tournament in
March rests on its ability to win games it
is favored to win, especially on the road.
"It definitely is one of those losses
that is going to hurt us in the end"

Thorius said. "This is one of those teams
that we need to go out and perform well
against and make a stand and say we
belong in the top of the Big Ten. To lose
to a team like Indiana, which was 0-2 in
the Big Ten coming in, that doesn't help
our chances very much."
Forward Stacey Thomas, who began
the game just three steals from tying the
all-time Big Ten mark of 327, had two
more to come within one of the record.
Thomas also contributed 16 points and
14 rebounds in the loss.
Indiana center Jill Chapman led all
scorers with 29 points. The sophomore
also added 10 rebounds for her sixth
double-double of the season.
"Chapman did a nice job inside fin-
ishing and getting to the free throw line,"
Michigan coach Sue Guevara said.
"Until we establish a good inside game
we will be in deep doo-doo"
TIME CHANGE: Saturday's game
against Purdue has been changed to a
noon start.

Don't blink: Purdue's next for 'M'

By Chris Grandstaff
Daily Sports Writer
The Union lost at Bull Run, the
Allies lost at Dunkirk, the Texans lost
the Alamo. But it takes more than one
victory to win the war, and the
Michigan hockey team knows it.
The puck will drop on the second
installment of the war on ice between
Michigan and Michigan State tonight
at Munn Ice Arena. The Wolverines
are looking to even the score after los-
ing to the Spartans in the champi-
onship game of the Great Lakes
Invitational, 3-1.
And they're bringing reinforce-
ments.
Josh Blackburn returns in net for
the Wolverines after being sidelined
for three months because of a
Lisfrancs sprain to his toe. Last sea-
son Blackburn led the Wolverines
with a record of 25-10-6 and an
impressive goals-against average of
2.28.
Michigan coach Red Berenson is
hoping the return of Blackburn will
give the Wolverines enough of a boost
to get by the Spartans. That's a tough

task for someone who hasn't seen any
game action since the Wolverines'
game against Notre Dame on Oct. 8.
"The way I look at it this game is
that our goalie might have to steal for
us," Berenson said. "Could Blackburn
do that? Can he go in and make a dif-
ference in the game? Blackie is that
type of goalie, but can he do that in
his first game? It's hard to say.
"He might inspire our team by just
coming back. It can lift a team very
quickly if a goalie comes back, espe-
cially with a goalie that has his kind
of reputation."
Blackburn isn't the only Wolverine
bringing in the cavalry either.
Michigan will also welcome back its
top left winger Geoff Koch from a
groin injury. Top defenseman Jeff
Jillson and sniper-center Andy
Hilbert also will rejoin the
Wolverines after returning from the
World Junior Championships in
Sweden.
With added defense and artillery
the Wolverines will look for victory
in the second leg of this season's con-
flict.

MINNEAPOLIS - Junior Brandon
Smith walked out of the Michigan lock-
erroom devastated and depressed after
Michigan's 85-66 loss to Minnesota
Wednesday night in its Big Ten opener.
"It was a heartbreaking loss," Smith
said. "We came in here thinking we were
good enough to get a win."
The Wolverines didn't err in their pre-
diction. After building confidence and
maturity in their 9-2 nonconference sea-
son, Michigan looked prime to compete
in its Big Ten campaign.
But unlike the wane confines of
Crisler Arena and games against the

likes Towson and Duquense, Michigan
now faces a Big Ten onslaught, and
recovering from a 19-point blowout
won't be easy when its faces Purdue
tomorrow at 2:31 p.m.
If Michigan has any hope of beating
the Boilermakers in West Lafayette for
the first time in six years, the Wolverines
will need to find an answer - and fast
-for their horrendous play in
Minneapolis. Michigan must strive for
the same grit that led them to last sea-
son's 79-73 overtime upset over the
Boilermakers in the Big Ten tournament.
The Wolverines may be able to
pounce on a weakened Purdue team. The
injury bug has bit Purdue, especially

among its strong senior class. Senior
Brian Cardinal broke his thumb in mid-
December and hasn't been 100 percent
since. The forward has come off the
bench in the past few games and will
likely do the same against the
Wolverines. Seniors Mike Robinson and
Greg McQuay are recovering from ankle
injuries, but will start.
To counter Purdue's strong upper-
classman lineup, Michigan will need its
few veterans to help mitigate the fresh-
men growing pains.
"For the freshmen (Minnesota) was
their first game, but for me and the other
upperclassmen, we've been here before,"
Smith said. "We need to get it done."

'M' wrestlers just slim of No. 600 in Virginia

By Ryan C. Moloney
Daily Sports Writer
You'd think the prospect of a 600th
victory would mean a little bit more
- maybe stir a few more stomach
butterflies than normal.
After all, not everybody nets 600
goals or hits 600 home runs. It is not
everyday that an NCAA wrestling
program reaches such a hallowed
plateau.

In fact, it's taken 78 years and a lot
of moist drops of dedication to get to
where the Wolverines are today -
three finalist spots in this weekend's
Virginia Duals away from clinching
victory No. 600.
Obviously, the Wolverines have har-
bored anticipation for this momentous
occasion for weeks now, right?
"Wow," captain Otto Olson said. "I
didn't know about that, but it gives us
more of a reason to win this weekend."
That response might suck all the air
out of the excitement balloon, but fol-
lowers of Michigan wrestling should-
n't be alarmed.
The tradition of the program is such
that even today's team can take pride

in what began before many of their
grandparents were born.
But the focus is on the task at hand.
As first-year coach Joe McFarland
said, "I'm just looking to get my sec-
ond win."
Which, as it turns out, won't be as
easy as the Wolverines once believed.
Joe Warren, the fourth-ranked
wrestler in the country at 133 pounds
and the favorite coming into the meet,
is out with a knee injury sustained last
week at the Midlands meet.
"I don't know if we will be ranked
No. 1 going in," McFarland said. "The
lineup is different - we won't know
for sure until I go to the coaches'
meeting, but we will go and perform

regardless of the seedings."
The Virginia Duals will also give
wrestlers fighting for top spots in their
respective weight classes a chance to
stake a claim for the bulk of the dual
meet season.
"I'm curious to see what happens in
185 between Joe DeGain and Andy
Hrovat," Olsen said. "Hrovat had a bad
day at Midlands but he will improve."
The competition, NWCA wrestling
stalwarts Lehigh and Pittsburgh, aren't
exactly scary to even the faintest of
hearts - a mediocre performance by
Michigan could still ensure a first-
place trophy. But with Warren out of
the lineup, victory No. 600 and some
hardware is a little tougher of a task.
