Women missing point,
too many free throws

Eight schools turn out for USFA event on North Campus

Daily Sports Writer
The Michigan women's basketball
team is not good enough to win when it
misses its free throws. This was evident
Friday night when the Wolverines con-
cluded the pre-season by missing three
crucial free throws in the final 1:47 of
their 81-79 loss to Soproni-Postas, a
Hungarian national team.
"The good news is, it was an exhibi-
tion game," Michigan coach Sue
Guevara said. "We missed a couple free
throws down the stretch. We missed the
front end of a one-and-one and then we
missed the first of two (free throws). I
know what it was like in that locker
room. I know how hurt they were feel-
ing, and to be honest, that's good."
With 1:47 left, Alayne Ingram missed
the second of her one-and-one and then
22 seconds later, Anne Thorius missed
the first of a one-and-one, leaving
Michigan up by only one.
With Michigan down one and only 17
seconds left, freshman LeeAnn Bies
fouled Angela Delms. Delms split the
two free throws, giving Postas an 81-79
lead, but leaving Michigan with a
chance to force overtime, or win the
game with a 3-pointer.
The Wolverines looked like they
would force overtime when junior guard
Anne Thorius, who shot 82 percent from
the free-throw line last year, drew a foul
with four seconds left.
But the first free throw rattled out,

leaving the Wolverines needing to get
the ball back to force overime. Thorius
missed the second free throw on pur-
pose in a vain attempt to get the ball
back. Soproni-Postas rebounded the ball
and ran out the rest of the clock to finish
its road trip 6-1.
The Wolverines held a 69-60 lead
with 10:42, largely due to their ability to
outrun the bigger, slower Hungarians.
But Postas went on a 13-3 run to take its
first lead with 4:53 left.
"Their size wore us down when they
were in the paint," Guevara said. "We
changed our defense a couple different
times."
The Wolverines' biggest problem was
their inability to find a go-to scorer in
the second half.
"Other people have to pick up the
scoring, Guevara said.
In the first half, sophomore guard
Alayne Ingram poured in 20 points,
including four 3-pointers. In tne second
half, she only scored three points.
Michigan turned to its all-America can-
didate Stacey Thomas, but she never
found her touch.
With under one minute left and down
by one, Thomas missed an open jumper.
She finished with only four points.
"I give them credit for their defense,"
Thomas said. "They were up in our
faces and they had great weak-side
defense, but a big part of that is me. I
need to hit the shots and I just didn't fin-
ish."

The Michigan fencing club hosted the
peculiarly named 19th annual 'Fourth of
Jily' C and Under fencing tournament at
the North Campus Recreation Building
yesterday afternoon.
The official United States Fencing
Association tournament allowed fencers
to have the opportunity to earn a person-
al and national rating from "A" to "E."
Sunday's competition was open to
fencers who had a "C" rating or lower.
The Fourth of July tournament was an
i 4ividual event, with fencers of various
ages competing as separate representa-
tives of their university or fencing clubs
The Wolverines entered the tourna-
ment unsure of what to expect. "It's hard
to say what you expect coming in;" said
Michigan coach Jim Vesper. "You don't

know what you're competing against
until it shows up at the door."
There was a large turnout at the
NCRB. Representatives of eight fencing
teams, including five independent clubs,
competed. A highlight of the tourna-
ment was the performance of Michigan
sophomore Linda Novitski, the women's
foil captain, who captured a silver medal
out of a field of 15-and a coveted E
rating-despite battling illness.
"I didn't really expect to finish sec-
ond. These USFA tournaments let you
get to know people from other schools.
It's a really nice atmosphere. There's a
lot of support, even between people from
different teams. The "E" rating was just
the icing on the cake."

'M' Tae Kwon Do second at Big Tens,

Blue men' s swinung
muzzles Nittany Lions

'The Michigan Tae Kwan Do club
team fought to a second place finish in
this weekend's first Big Ten tourna-
ment.
The Wolverines were led by the per-
f6mances of Han Jo Kim in the light-
weight division, Jayme Hart in the mid-
&leweight division, and Josh Rosenblatt
in the heavyweight class.
Kim fought a close match against the
German National Champion from Penn
State but lost, and Hart also lost a tough
bout, this one against another Penn
State competitor who was a U.S. Cup
Gold Medalist.
Despite these performances, the
Nittany Lions were only able to muster
a fourth-place finish.
Michigan's A team was in first place
after the forms competition (part one of

the tournament), and eliminated Ohio
State and Michigan State in the fighting
competition en route to their strong fin-
ish.

The Michigan men's swimming
and diving team had solid perfor-
mances in every event to edge Penn
State in a thriller, 125-118, Friday.
"This was one of the most exciting
dual meets we've had in a long
time," Michigan coach Jon
Urbancheck said. "We knew it would
be close, and it was. All the way
down to the wire."
The Wolverines (1-0 Big Ten, 2-1
overall) finished first in eight of the
13 events. Michigan dominated in
three events, sweeping the 1,650-
yard freestyle and taking first and
second in the 200-yard breaststroke

and 500-yard freestyle.
With the score see-sawing
throughout the meet, the Wolverines
realized they needed the final three
events.
Senior tri-captain Josh Trexler and
junior Scott Werner won the three-
meter dive and 200-yard breast-
stroke, respectively. That left it up to
the 800-yard relay freestyle team to
close the deal.
Junior Chris Thompson and fresh-
men Garrett Mangieri, who each had
already won events earlier, teamed
with senior tri-captain Mike McWha
and sophomore Tim Siciliano to cap-
ture first in the final relay, sealing
the meet.
