Icers land recruit
for 2001 season
According to the North
American Hockey League, the
University of Michigan signed
Steve Swistak of the Compuware
Ambassadors to their 2001 recruit-
ing crop.
Swistak, 17, is the cousin of cur-
rent Wolverine freshman J.J.
Swistak.
The newest Wolverine recuit
netted 17 goals and 23 assists for
40 points in 52 games in his sec-
ond NAHL season. Swistak also
has accumulated 36 penalty min-
utes.
He is the sixth member of
Compuware's 1999 Jr. A national
championship team to commit to
Michigan.
The group includes his cousin
J.J., current Ambassadors team-
mate Andy Burnes and former
junior teammates Mark Mink,
John Shouneyia and Mike
Roemensky.
"Steve's a good all-around play-
er and should make a solid all-
around contribution to Michigan
as a freshman," Compuware
GM/Coach Mike Vellucci said.
Swistak will be joined in the
2000-01 recruiting class by
Burnes, a 6-0, 185 lb. defenseman
from Battle Creek, Ml; 6-4, 230 lb.
defenseman Michael Komisarek
(Islip Terrace, NY); and 6-0, 180
lb. defenseman Reilly Olson
(Grand Prairie, Alberta).

Wolverines to square off against
pair of nonconference opponents

By Benjamin Singer
Daily SportsWriter

The Michigan women's tennis team
might still be able to watch the Final Four
despite its busy weekend. The
Wolverines will host South Florida today
and Marquette on Sunday, but the all-
important basketball games fall on
Saturday and Monday.
In spite of that, the only nets Michigan
will be playing with this weekend are on
the tennis court.
The Wolverines are coming off of their
worst defeat of the season at the hands of
No. 13 Notre Dame, but Michigan does-
n't have time to dwell on the loss..
"We already put that behind us,"
senior co-captain Danielle Lund said.
"We have another match coming up so
fast."
The matches this weekend close out
the Wolverines' nonconference schedule.
"We really want to be ready for (the
Big Ten matches)" Lund said. "We've
struggled so far against other Big Ten
teams. It will be a nice way to get ready
for them with two wins."
The nonconference matches are more
than just stepping stones for the remain-
der of the season.
Wins over quality non-conference
opponents can help boost a team's posi-
tion in the NCAA reionals.

Michigan's rivalry with South
Florida dates to the dawn of the
1990s. Although the Bulls have won
the past four meetings, Michigan has
come close in the last two years, los-
ing 5-4 each time.
"They may be a higher-ranked team,
but we're always right there with them,"
Lund said. "I consider the rivalry
intense"
This is the first time that the teams will
be competing in Ann Arbor - the previ-
ous 10 meetings have been in Tampa.
"Usually it's our first match and it's
outside" co-captain Brooke Hart said.
"This time we will have an advantage."
Perhaps the edge that the indoor courts
at the Varsity Tennis Center provide may
have scared the Bulls away from Ann
Arbor in the past - or maybe it's some-
thing else.
"I heard something about how the
coach doesn't like to drive in the snow,"
Hart said.
The match against Marquette will be
Michigan's third match in five days.
The Golden Eagles don't have an
annual rivalry with the Wolverines, but
the teams still have some familiarity with
each other.
"A lot of our players have played their
players in other tournaments," Lund said.
"It will definitely be close. It will be a
great opportunity for us.

Deacons cut down nets in NYC

NEW YORK (AP) - Wake Forest
players hugged at center court, their
midseason struggles a distant memory
as they celebrated the NIT champi-
onship.
Robert O'Kelley, the tournament
MVP, made five 3-pointers and finished
with 19 points to lead Wake Forest to a
71-61 victory over Notre Dame in the
final of the National Invitation
Tournament at Madison Square Garden
yesterday night.
Craig Dawson added 13 points and
Darius Songaila 12 for the Demon
Deacons (22-14), who won their first
NIT final in the first game between the
schools.
Notre Dame's Troy Murphy finished
with 20 points on 8-for-16 shooting, but
was mostly held in check, getting most
of his points late. David Graves added
17.
Wake Forest, which lost nine of 13
games midway through the season and
saw its postseason hopes quickly fading,
ended the season by winning eight of its
last nine games.

None was bigger than this one.
Wake Forest played throughout with'
energy and determination, looking
much better than it did in its semifinal
victory over North Carolina State on
Tuesday night when it had 23 turnovers.
The Demon Deacons beat Vanderbilt,
New Mexico, defending NIT champion
California and North Carolina State to
reach the final for the first time.
The Demon Deacons nursed big
leads throughout, then stopped the
Irish's final comeback attempt.
Trailing 61-45 with just over five
minutes remaining, Notre Dame (22-15)
went on an 11-2 run, getting within 63-
56 on Murphy's layup with 52 seconds
remaining.
Songaila made a free throw with 50.4
seconds left to make it 64-56 and
O'Kelley pushed the margin to 10 with
two free throws with 34.9 seconds left.
Graves made a 3-pointer with 27.6
seconds left and then made two free
throws with 27.3 seconds left to make it

66-61.
Jere Macura fouled Songaila with
26.2 seconds left, and Songaila madet
one of two free throws to give Wake
Forest a 67-61 lead.
Jimmy Dillon fouled O'Kelley with
13.8 left, and he made both free throws.
Songaila's two free throws with 3.4 sec-
onds left sealed it.
Wake Forest started the second half
with a 15-6 run, stretching its lead to 53
33 on O'Kelley's 3-pointer with 12:3P
remaining.
The Irish, who dominated Michigan,
Xavier, Brigham Young and Penn State
to get to the final, were thoroughly out-
played by the Demon Deacons.
For the first time in its run through
the NIT, Notre Dame was unable to
make its shots, goingjust 8-for-21 in the
first half, and their star player was held
in check. Further magnifying Notre
Dame's frustration, coach Matt Dohert-
argued a no-call and was given a a tech-
nical with 1:59 remaining.

Even though they can only chant, "We're number 65!," Wake Forest players still
found reason to celebrate after they beat Notre Dame to win the NIT title.
