6 The Micnigan Lail -- Mcnday, February 14, 2000

Wolverines press issue against IU

By-Raphael Goodstein
Daily Sports Writer
Five and a half weeks ago the
Michigan women's basketball team
went to Bloomington to play an
Indiana team that was considered to
be one of the worst teams in the Big
Michigan, playing without starting
point guard Anne Thorius, fell
behind by nine points with two min-
utes to go, and then cut the deficit to
one, before succumbing to the
Hoosiers. The loss is Michigan's
worst to date.
The lone bright spot for the
Wolverines, was a late run, keyed by
a quicker pressing lineup.
The Wolverines learned from that
late run and in yesterday's win
against the Hoosiers, Michigan
pressed for most of the game and
blew out Indiana, 85-58.
"They couldn't keep up with us,"
sophomore shooting guard Alayne
Ingram said.
;Igram scored 12 points -- eight

from transition layups.
Ingram wasn't the only one to take
advantage of the transition game
though. Michigan finished with 44
points off of layups.
"We couldn't stop the transition,"
Indiana coach Jim Izard said
The transition game helped
Michigan find their rhythm, and get
multiple players easy baskets. For
the first time this season every play-
er scored and eight different players
scored layups.
"In the Big Ten, you're only as
good as your bench," Michigan
coach Sue Guevara said. "I have a lot
of confidence in our bench, and I
think our starters have a lot of confi-
dence in our bench. We were able to
get (good bench play) today. When
you can bring people in that maintain
the level or take it up a level, then
that person that's sitting there gets to
rest a little, and it's always nice to
have fresh legs in there." .
"We had players who got tired and
then we would miss a shot," Izard

DISCOUNT BIES: Freshman center
LeeAnn Bies had another solid game
off the bench for Michigan, totaling
22 points - a career high - in her
21 minutes.
Once again, Bies successfully
allowed starters R-ina Goodlow and
Alison Miller to get some rest.
"That's probably the difference in
the game, what she did off the
bench," Izard said. "I wasn't expect-
ing her to have that kind of a game.
We fouled her too much, they got the
ball inside to her too much, and if
you want to look at the stats - for a
glaring stat - that's probably it."
This sort of praise is not new to
Bies. She is averaging over nine
points and six rebounds per game,
and the last three opposing head
coaches have praised her.
"I just focus on doing what I'm
supposed to do for the team," Bies
said. "I don't go out there saying
'Okay, I'm going to have a good
game,' I just go out there and do
what I'm supposed to do. I do my

'M' wins.
4th straight
Continued from Page1B
This time, though, Indiana was unable to
mount any sort of challenge in the
ond half. The Wolverines continue
widen their advantage and led by over
30 points towards the end of the game.
"We really struggled getting out to a
good start,' Indiana coach Jim Izard
said. "We talked about coming back out
in the first four minutes of the second
half and getting the lead down to ten,
and we actually did that. But give
Michigan credit - they just kept on
coming back at us, and they did a good
As the game wound down
Michigan's lead stabilized near 30,the
Wolverines inserted some of their
rarely-used reserves into the game, such
as forward Katie Dykhouse and guards
Infini Robinson and Susana Jana.
When Robinson got her first points, it
meant that every Wolverine had gotten
into the scoresheet. This prompted a few
leaps ofjoy from Guevara.
"I'm glad everyone was able to sc
today," Guevara said. "I was happy to
see Infini score, and I was happy to see
Susana and Katie score. They work their
tails off in practice, so it's a nice reward
for them."


Kenisha Walker and the rest of the Michigan women's basketball bench were a
major key in the Wolverines' victory over Indiana, 8&-58, yesterday.
