I LANDOVER, Md. (AP) - Twenty
minutes of Stephen Davis was more than
enough for the Washington Redskins. It
was way too much for the Detroit Lions.
Davis entered Saturday's NFC wild-
card game with a sore ankle and left with
a sprained knee. In between, he revital-
ized the Redskins' running game with
119 yards on 15 carries and two touch-
downs to lead Washington to victory in
its first playoff game in seven years, 27-
13 over the mistake-prone Lions. Davis
sprained his right knee five minutes into
the second quarter with the score 17-0
and will be re-evaluated Sunday.
For a few hours at least, the Redskins
were able to revel in a rout that had them
leading 27-0 at halftime. It was their
fifth straight home victory, and now they
have to do something they haven't done
all year: Win a big away game.
The Lions were 8-4 following a 33-17
home victory over the Redskins last
month, but lost their last five games and
went only 2-7 away from the Silverdome
this season.
The Lions haven't won a road playoff
game since 1957 and are 0-20 against
the Redskins in Washington, including
0-3 in postseason. The Lions were in the

playoffs for the fifth time in seven years,

Former Redskins quarterback Gus
Frerotte was essentially a non-factor
because the Lions don't have a running
game and his line didn't give him time to
throw.
Frerotte was sacked on the first play
of the game, dislocating a finger on his
non-throwing hand in the process.
He finished 21-for-46 for 251 yards
and two interceptions and was sacked
five times.

Another honor
for field hockey
Michigan freshman Jessica Rose, who
led the Michigan field hockey team to its
first NCAA Tournament appearance
ever, now has another accomplishment
to tack on to her young resume. Rose's
offensive prowess earned her a spot on
the U.S. Women's field hockey under-21
team after a week-long selection camp at
Rutgers on December 27-31.
Rose was one of 22 athletes chosen
for the national squad, which will make
the trek to Bridgetown, Barbados in
April to compete at the Pan American
Junior Championships. The tournament
will serve as the qualifier for the Junior
World Cup in Buenos Aires in 2001.
The freshman, who turned 19 on
January 5, played for, the 1999 U.S.
under-20 team last year, but she
bypassed the under-19 team this year
making the under-21 squad.
Rose started all 27 games for the

BRIEFS
Wolverines, tallying nine goals and 22 -
assists. She was key in Michigan's'.
NCAA Tournament run, as she not only
scored Michigan's lone goal in tho
NCAA championship game, but she
also dished the game-winning assist
against undefeated Connecticut in the
semi-final to end the Huskies' title
hopes.
Crumpton named
to freshman team
The accolades continue to roll in fo*
Michigan forward Abby Crumpton.
She was named to Soccer Buzz
Magazine's All-Freshman teamĀ° last
week.
Crumpton became the third
Wolverine ever to receive the honor
following her twelve-goal and eight-
assist season. She was Michigan's sec-
ond-leading scorer, and she helped
lead the team to a Big Ten tournament
title.&

Miami holds off Seahawks, 20-17

SEATTLE (AP) - There's some
football left in Dan Marino after all.
The NFUs 38-year-old career passing
leader, playing in the shadow of specu-
lation he is about to retire, pulled off
some of his old magic to keep the
Miami Dolphins in the playoffs Sunday
with a 20-17 over the Seattle Seahawks
iy the final football game in the
Kngdome.
He did so by orchestrating an 11-
play, 85-yard drive capped by J.J.
Titans shock
Buffalo with
improbable play
NASHVILLE (AP) - To the Drive
and the Immaculate Reception, now
add the Music City Miracle.
Kevin Dyson sped 75 yards down the
left sideline with a lateral from Frank
Wycheck on a kickoff for the winning
touchdown with three seconds remain-
ing Saturday, lifting the Tennessee
Titans to a 22-16 playoff victory over
the stunned Buffalo Bills.
. The Titans had to survive a video
review, and when referee Phil Luckett
announced the cross-field throw from
Wycheck to Dyson was legal, the
Adelphia Coliseum rocked like nothing
Nashville has seen before.
But not doing it legally, claimed the
-Bills, many of whom lay strewn on the
turf, in shock that they allowed
Tennessee to steal the first playoff
game of 2000.
Buffalo's Steve Christie nailed a 41-
yard field goal for the lead with 16 sec-
onds left. But the Titans had enough
time for something desperate: Home
Run Throwback. And, in the franchise's
first playoff game in six years, the
Titans found just the right miracle play.

Johnson's 2-yard run for the winning
score with 4:48 left. Marino was four-
for-seven for 84 yards on the drive,
including completions of 23 yards to
Tony Martin on third-and-12 from his
13, and a 24-yard third-down comple-
tion to Oronde Gadsden at the 5-yard
line that set up Johnson's game-winner.
It was the 37th fourth-quarter come-
back of Marino's career, second only to
John Elway, and it sent the Dolphins
(10-7) to Jacksonville for a second-
round AFC playoff game with the
Jaguars next Saturday.
Marino was 17-of-30 for 196 yards
and had a 1-yard touchdown pass to
Gadsden. Miami won on the road in the
playoffs for the first time since a victo-
ry in Pittsburgh in 1972.
Vikings stifle
Cowboys, 27-10
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Jeff
George waited a decade for postseason
glory, and his first taste has him hooked.
George threw touchdown passes of
26 yards to Robert Smith, 58 yards to
Randy Moss and 5 yards to Cris Carter
as the Vikings (11-6) advanced to face
St. Louis in the divisional round with a
27-10 victory.
Dallas (8-9) failed to become the
first .500 team to win a playoff game
following a full season. The Cowboys
lost their eighth straight road game
despite a record-breaking performance
by tailback Emmitt Smith, who became
the NFL's career leading rusher in the
playoffs.
The Vikings have put it together with
four straight victories. .
George completed 12-of-25 passes
for 212 yards and no interceptions.
Robert Smith rushed 28 times for 140
yards.

For the Daily
The Michigan Indoor Track and
Field Building was lively this
Saturday, as Michigan hosted the
Jack Harvey Invitational, signaling
the beginning of the women's indoor
track season.
The competition attracted Toledo,
Eastern Michigan, Detroit and orga-
nizations including Athletes America
and The Ann Arbor Track Club to
participate in the -non-scoring event.
Michigan won nine events in the
meet. The competition began with
Michigan pole-vaulters Candice
Mullings Tiffany Sylvertooth and
Anna Fisher finishing in the top
three spots.
Freshmen gave impressive perfor-
mances for the Wolverines, includ-
ing Teyonna Simpson, who placed
first in the triple jump with a leap of
11.87. This distance surpassed

Toledo's second place jump of 11.02.
Newcomer Colleen Lange won the
3,000-meter run with a time o
10:35.58.
The Wolverines' success contin-
ued as Michigan's sprinters secured
top finish in five events. Robin
Jandfair, Tasha Phillips and TeNisha
Williams ran away with first, second
and third place in the 60-meter hur-
dles.
Breanne Tenclay and Marcella
Cornell finished strong in the second
heat. The 3,000-meter was equally
successful.
Along with Colleen Lange's fir
place finish, Andrea Steinhoff, Erin
White, Melanee Schuring and Erica
Solway secured the rest of the top"
five.
The Wolverines will test their pre-
season abilities Saturday at the
Indiana Quadrangular in
Bloomington.

M' track makes debut under Warhurst

By Ron Garber
and David Moss.
Daily Sports Writers
The winds of change swept through
Ann Arbor this offseason and when the
dust settled, Ron Warhurst was the new
man at the helm of the Michigan men's
track and field team. For the first time
in over two decades, Jack Harvey will
not be leading the Wolverines into bat-
tle.
Harvey retired after last season and
Warhurst, Harvey's long-time assis-
tant, was the obvious choice to suc-
ceed him. Warhurst is no stranger to
head coaching, serving as the men's
cross country coach for 25 years.
Warhurst inherits a talented young
team looking to improve on last year's
up-and-down campaign.
Successes at the Michigan
Quadrangular and Meyo Invitational
were peppered with disappointment at
the Big Ten Championships. Although
hampered by injuries to several key
performers, the team looked somewhat
overwhelmed by the occasion.
A year later, with that memory still
in the back of their minds, the

Wolverines have returned to action
with an improved attitude.
"Everyone has looked great so far in
practice," said sophomore sprinter Ike
Okenwa. "We're a lot more focused."
Okenwa figures to be one of the
team's catalysts. He enjoyed a fantas-
tic freshman season, winning the 60-
meter dash several times while con-
tributing points in the 200 and the 4 x
60 relay. Okenwa's season ended
inauspiciously though, as the
California native was injured after an
unfortunate run-in with one of
Michigan's icy sidewalks shortly
before Big Tens.
This season, Okenwa is already off
and running as he captured the 60 at
the Jack Harvey Invitational, the
Wolverines' first competition.
Okenwa will be joined in the sprints
by high school rival and Michigan run-
ning back Justin Fargas, who makes
his return to athletic competition after
a devastating leg injury. Fargas, a for-
mer California state champion in the
100 , sat out this weekend's meet but is
slated to make his debut next week at
the Indiana quadrangular. His addition

will give Michigan's sprint team a
boost as well as much-needed depth.
Okenwa, Fargas, and fellow sprinter
Steve Jenkins will grab many head-
lines but Michigan's strength lies in
the distance events.
Returning Big Ten mile champion
Jay Cantin, fresh off a 12th place fin-
ish at NCAAs, spearheads a group of
gritty runners that can stack up with
any in the Big Ten.
In addition, All-American John
Mortimer returns from a medical red-
shirt year. After contemplating a move
to the professional ranks, Mortimer's
decision to return adds stability and
leadership to an already formidable
group that includes sophomore Mike
Wisniewski and senior Steve
Lawrence.
"Not to take anything away from
the sprinters," Cantin said, "but I
think that with myself, Mortimer,
Lawrence, and W.isniewski, the
majority of our points will come in
the distance events."
If Saturday is any indication,
Cantin's optimism is justified.
Wisniewski and Cantin finished first

and second in the 3,000 and Lawrence
placed second in the mile.
"We have four real killers in the dis-
tance events," Warhurst said. "We
should be very strong."
Another key area the Wolverines
will look to improve upon is the field
events.
Sophomore Oded Padan showO
flashes of brilliance but struggled with
frequent fouls in the triple jump.
Padan, along with thrower Patrick
Johansson and high jumper Robert
Arnold, should benefit from the addi-
tion of assistant coach Rick Deligny, a
field events specialist.
"Ricky has really eased the transi-
tion from Harvey to Warhurst," Cantin
said. "He's very knowledgeable a
gets along great with the guys."
Unfortunately, the Wolverines will
have to wait another week to judge
their progress. Padan sat out this meet
with a minor leg injury and Johansson
was unable to return from his native
Sweden in time to take part in the
competition.
The Warhurst era began on Saturday
but the first major test comes next
weekend in Bloomington, where
Michigan will begin its drive towar
the Conference title. Is the team rea
to put last year's Big Ten disappoint-
ment behind them?
"We're ready" promised Okenwa.
"A year older, and a year wiser."
