Old MUB umpires'
union strikes out
NEW YORK (AP) - Richie Phillips
and the Major League Umpires
Association struck out in their final legal
appeal yesterday, clearing the way for
e new union to start negotiations with
ners.
/The National Labor Relations Board
c~ified the results of a November elec-
tion' that kicked out the MLUA and
replaced it with a new union, to be called
the World Umpires Association.
The new union intends to take a less
confrontational approach than Phillips,
whose failed resignation strategy last
summer cost 22 umpires their jobs.
"We're looking forward to moving
ead with baseball and starting a new
lationship, and trying to get all
umpires to come together," said AL
umpire John Hirschbeck, a leader of the
new union.
About 50 of the 71 major league
umpires have joined the new union,
according to its lawyer, Joel Smith. The
new union will meet Sunday in Phoenix
to elect officers and a negotiating com-
mittee.
Tonya Harding vs.
the law: Round 2
CAMAS, Wash. (AP) - Figure
skating bad girl Tonya Harding is at it
again.
She pleaded innocent yesterday to
charges she smacked her live-in
}yfriend in the nose with a hubcap
and bloodied his face with her fists.
Harding, whose downfall in the
sport began with the plot to hobble
rival Nancy Kerrigan in 1994, was
released without bail and ordered to
stay away from alcohol, weapons and
the boyfriend, 28-year-old Darren
Silver.
A sullen-looking Harding hungI
her head in court and mumbled that
She understood the judge's condi-
tions of her release.
Harding, 29, was ordered to
return to court March 8 for a pretri-
alhearing. She faces up to one year
in jail and a $5,000 fine if convict-
ed of the misdemeanor assault
charge.
"I'm very saddened by this
whole ordeal," said Harding, who
made no other comments.

Wolverine ,
By Arun Gopal
Daily Sports Writer
Coming off of Sunday's emotional
victory in East Lansing, the Michigan
women's basketball team headed to
Iowa with some simple goals - avoid
a letdown against the sub-.500
Hawkeyes and maintain the momen-
tum borne from a six-game winning
streak that had locked up second place
in the Big Ten for the Wolverines.
Mission accomplished.
Like all good teams, Michigan
(12-3 Big Ten, 20-6 overall) took care
of business, trouncing Iowa (6-9, 9-
16) in the Hawkeyes' home finale, 78-
61. By winning their 20th game - a
new school single-season record for
victories -the Wolverines erased any
lingering doubts about a possible
post-Michigan State hangover.
Despite hitting only 41 percent of
its shots, Michigan was able to win
the game handily. The bulk of the

While the Michigan men's basket- 1
ball team is winding down its Big TenA
season and preparing for lowly
Northwestern, the women's tennis
team is getting geared up for opening t
their conference schedule against two t
formidable foes, this weekend at thec
Varsity Tennis Center.
While Northwestern's basketballa
and football teams are perennial Big h
Ten basement dwellers, its women'sc
tennis team is the defending confer- t
ence champion, and often is in the a
upper tier of the conference.p
The No. 14 Wildcats (7-1) come to
Ann Arbor on Saturday having owned c
the Wolverines in the past - winning v
25 of 32 meetings, including last year's r
6-1 victory. c
But this year the Wolverines have
the firepower to match Northwestern. f
Michigan finally has a clean bill of S
health, with senior co-captain Danielle 1
Lund returning to singles, winning her a
70th career match last Sunday. And in n

s win 20th game, 78-61

credit should go to the Wolverines'
stifling defense, which held Iowa to a.
horrendous 29 percent shooting night
despite outstanding games from
Hawkeye guards Lindsey Meder (26
points) and Cara Consuegra (21
points). Michigan wasn't bad on the
glass, either, outrebounding the
Hawkeyes 52-38.
"We knew it was going to be a
tough game," Michigan coach Sue
Guevara said.
With senior forward Stacy Thomas
suffering through a subpar night (2-10
shooting, 7 points, 8 rebounds), it was
up to Michigan's low-post players -
forwards LeeAnn Bies, Raina
Goodlow, and Alison Miller - to step
up, and they delivered.
Miller and Bies led all Wolverines
with 15 points apiece, while Goodlow
chipped in with 14. By comparison,
Iowa's starting frontcourt of forward
Beatrice Bullock and center Randi
Peterson combined for just seven
,rence foes
doubles, she teams up with fellow
senior co-captain Brooke Hart to form
a solid No. I doubles team that has
been ranked as high as No. 10 in pre-
vious years.
The Wolverines have a balanced sin-
gles attack. They have three players
hat have 10 wins or more, and consis-
tent doubles tandems - that are 1 1-4
combined this year.
"Talent wise, we definitely have the
ability to win," Lund said. "We just all
have to have the same attitude that we
can do it. You can say it until you're
blue in the face, but you have to actu-
ally believe it in order for it to hap-
pen. ~
On Sunday, the Wolverines will take
on another Big Ten beast, Illinios,
who after a last place finish in 1998,
ebounded to take third place in the
conference last year.
"We're finally fully healthy for the
first time this season," Ilinois coach
Sujuay Lama said. "Finally the (Big
Ten) season we've been looking for is
approaching, and we have the goal in
mind to win the conference title."

points while making only one out of
12 shots.
"I thought Iowa did a nice job
defending Stacy Thomas, so one of
the keys to the game for us was to
establish an inside game," Guevara
said. "It is the first game this season
that our three post players all scored
in double figures."
In an interesting twist, the
Wolverines were forced to wear their
blue warmup jerseys for the game.
The Wolverines normally don maize
uniforms for road contests. But Iowa
customarily wears gold uniforms at
Carver-Hawkeye Arena.
So, to avoid any confusion,
Michigan consented to wear its prac-
tice jerseys. In the end, though, it was
the Hawkeyes who appeared dazed
and confused as the Wolverines rolled
to their seventh consecutive victory.
"Iowa has been hot," Guevara said.
"We are just glad to get out of here
with a win."

Spirit of rule
lost on NCAA
11 "Free Jamal" and "Down
with the NCAA" crusades
side, the NCAA is trulygood
at heart. This is an organization that has
no choice but to be stringent, no option
but to be picky if it is going to success-
fully police the world of college sports.
Most times, the NCAA does what it
has to do to main-
tain the level play-
ing field that gives
the good schools a
chance to compete
fairly.
But in Jamal
Crawford's case,
the NCAA has CHRIS
employed a serious
lack ofcommon
sense in suspend. Iupc's
ing hin an addi- _scoop
tional eight games.
This suspension is completely unre-
lated to Barry Henthorn, Chevys, jewel-
ry or litigious ex-secretaries. Crawford
was penalized eight more games foi-
submitting a letter detailing his intent
to enter the 1999 NBA Draft as a high
school senior, despite the fact that the
letter arrived one day after the NBA's
deadline and wasn't accepted.
In the eyes of the NBA, Crawford
never entered the draft that year. As far
as the NBA is concerned, Crawford
never applied for the draft. To put things
in basketball perspective, his application
was like a 3-point shot after the buzzer
- it doesn't exist. It doesn't get marked
on the stat sheet because it never hap
pened.
NCAA rules state that high schoolers
cannot apply for professional-leagtte
drafts, although college players are
afforded that opportunity. Put aside this
hypocrisy for the time being - it's
beside the point. The NCAA, with its
collective head in a dark tunnel, deter-
mined that Crawford violated that rule
simply by sending his letter-of-intent to
the NBA, whether it was on time or not.
Never mind that it got there late and
was refused by the NBA. The stodgy
NCAA, in its strict interpretation of an
obscure rule, says Crawford did wrpg.
So essentially, Crawford is stuck in a
twisted stalemate. He couldn't have
jumped to the NBA, even if he had
wanted to - Crawford maintains tat
he was just looking for a talent assess-
ment and had no desire to jump tM-the
pros, Crawford also couldn't stay t2pf
harm's way with the NCAA, desbjk wn g
lack of wrongdoing.-
Crawford couldn't win, He w-,-~
doomed either way. And becauset
NCAA couldn't push through its sU-
created smoke screen, it lost sight oth
spirit of its own rules.
Had Crawford's letter arrived on
time, then rules are rules, Crawford-
should be disciplined as appropriate,
even if it means that he loses the rest of
his eligibility and Michigan is forced to
pick up the pieces without him. .
But that's not the case. Crawford and
the Wolverines are being punishefor a
non-event.
This is a serious injustice by the
NCAA - an eight-game suspension
for a late entry letter that was never.
accepted. Maybe someday the NCAA
will get its head out of the ground-
too late to save Crawford, probably but
not too late to prevent further idiocy.

After losing 14 seniors, the Michigan
baseball team is looking for some
young, enthusiastic and unintimidated
reinforcement this season. Michigan
Coach Geoff Zahn believes that some
old faces and even a few new ones will
"do all right" for the Wolverines this sea-
son.
The probable line-up for tomorrow's
season opener against Jacksonville State
will include four players who have never
started a game at the collegiate level -
a stark contrast to the players they are
replacing, each of whom had 100 or
more career starts at the beginning of the
1999 season.
"they don't act like they don't have
the experience," senior outfielder/first
baseman Jay Dines said. "I don't see
thos: guys as being inexperienced. I see
it as a lot of guys that really like playing
together."
The infield alone will have two fresh-
men, both at the corners. At first base

will be freshman Jordan French, who,
according to Zahn, "isn't intimidated by
anything."
At third will be freshman Brock
Koman, who Zahn refers to as his "old-
timer in a rookie's uniform"
"He's a freshman but he plays like a
crusty, old veteran," Zahn said. "He's not
wowed by anything"
Junior Scott Tousa will move from
shortstop to second base and senior Bill
LaRosa will take Tousa's place at short-
stop.
In the outfield, senior Robert Bobeda
will start at either left or in the middle. If
Bobeda starts on the side, freshman
Blake Rutowski will go in center. If
Bobeda starts in the middle, Zahn will
send redshirt freshman Mike Sokol to
left. In right field will be Dines, if he
doesn't start the game at first base.
"It depends on what the team needs
right now," Dines said. "I want to play
both (first and right), but it's going to
really depend on where the coaches
need me to play. And that's fine with me
as long as I get in and get a chance to hit,
