Soccer caps off
undefeated
league season
wth 5-1 victory
After a 5-1 win overToledo on Friday,
he Michigan men's soccer team once
igain proved that it deserves the varsity
status it will be getting next fall.
Under the guidance of coach Steve
3urns, who was named the first varsity
roach in September, the Wolverines
went undefeated in league play - the
First ime they have done so this decade.
The team was 11-0-2 in league play
nd 4-6 against varsity programs it chal-
enged.
A motivating factor for Michigan this
;eason was a change in post-season play,
which emphasizes final league stand-
.ngs.
Michigan is the two-time defending
:lub national champion. But this year's
ournament will be significantly differ-
ant from that which the Wolverines have
won the last two years.
In the past there were two post-season
tournaments, the National Intramural-
Recreational Sports Association's
;NIRSA) tournament and the National
Collegiate Soccer Assocation's (NCSA)
tournament.
For the NCSA tournament, teams had
to win their regional tournament, where-
as the NIRSA tournament gave out 16
at-large bids based on power rankings.
"We had received NIRSA bids in the
past," Bums said. "But we felt that the
NCSA competition was better. Now
NIRSA holds all the cards."
This year, in order to get into the field
,f 16, the teams were required to have
strong regular seasons.
"We're really excited because this
year the two club championships have
been united," Michigan junior defense-
man Brian Peters said. "The field will be

a lot stronger."
Motivation for the Wolverines this
season was the oppertunity for a third-
consecutive national championship, in
which they could defeat the most elite
club soccer teams in the country.
"Before we only had to win the
regional tournament to get to the
NCSA," Peters said. "But this year the
emphasis was on league play which is
why we went undefeated.
"People knew that every game count-
ed and that if we lost we might not get
back to the tournament. Only two losses
separated first and second place."
Another national championship in its
final year as the outlet for men's soccer
would be a fitting finale for one of
Michigan's most successful club pro-
gram.
"We're on a roll," Burns said. "I like
the way this team has come together.
This year the NIRSA tournament should
be exciting."

Men'sru by
tunishes e fall
season with split
In its final week of the fall season, the
men's rugby club went .500. Michigan
dropped a decision to Marquette on
Tuesday and rebounded to defeat
Cincinnati on Thursday.
Senior Corey Mather and sophomore
Ryan Miller each had strong perfor-
mances in the Marquette loss.
"The match against the Bearcats fea-
tured the hard-nosed play of MVP Mike
Livanos and Dave Liepman," Michigan's
Ryan Gaylor said. "Zev Winkelman was
a major contributor to seal the victory."
After Michigan's final game, Gavlor
said that the team improved tremendous-
ly and the Wolverines should be a strong
contender for the Michigan Cup tourna-
ment this spring.

SPORTS BRIEFS
Rams go down to
Titans, end their
unbeaten streak
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Quick
starts had made the St. Louis Rams the
NFL's last undefeated team. Yesterday,
hey couldn't get going fast enough.
Steve McNair, playing his first game
n six weeks following back surgery,
brew for two touchdowns and ran for
mother as the Tennessee Titans held on
or a 24-21 victory over the Rams in the
unlikely clash of this year's NFL powers.
The Titans (6-1) outscored the Rams
.6-1) 21-0 in the first 14 minutes. But
Kurt Warner, whose two fumbles led to
wo first-quarter touchdowns, rallied St.
Louis by throwing three touchdown
,asses in the second half.
After Warner's 15-yard touchdown
pass to Amp Lee with 2:14 left cut
Tennessee's lead to 24-21, Lorenzo
Styles of the Rams recovered the onside
kick and gave Warner one more chance
'o prove the Rams could win late as well
as early.
With no timeouts, Warner needed
niii-e plays to get them to the Titans 19
wilh time running out.
St. Louis ran Jeff Wilkins out to try a
38ard field goal, but his kick missed
wide right with 7 seconds left.
-The Rams thought they would get one
more chance thanks to a flag. But offi-
cials ruled that Titans linebacker Terry
Killens had been blocked into Wilkins
by Mike Gurttadauria.
:The Rams had .outscored opponents

66-9 in the first quarter this season, but
Tennessee jumped on the Rams from the
opening possession. McNair, who was-
n't named the starter until an hour before
kickoff, moved the Titans 80 yards and
capped the drive with a I-yard toss to
Lorenzo Neal and a 7-0 lead. Then it fell
apart for St. Louis, a team that had
trailed only once this season.
The 1972 Miami Dolphins may now
break out the champagne glasses. The
'72 Dolphins, who went 17-0, celebrate
every year after the last undefeated team
loses its first game, ensuring their record
stays intact.
Woods wins title
in somber Tour
Championship
HOUSTON (AP) - Amidst one
more tribute to Payne Stewart came yet
another coronation for Tiger Woods.
A long and sorrowful week at the Tour
Championship finally concluded yester-
day with several players wearing knick-
ers to honor Stewart.
Woods won his third straight tourna-
ment, his seventh PGA Tour victory this
year in only 20 starts, by closing with a
2-under 69 for a four-stroke victory over
Davis Love III.
Of his 14 career PGA Tour victories
and 17 worldwide, this was more hollow
than any of them. Ultimately, the week
belonged to the memory of Stewart, who
was killed in a plane crash on Monday.
"We've all tried to come to grips with
everything," Woods said. "It's been
tough. I can honestly say I'm pretty
drained. I'm thankful this week is over."

Yesterday's scores
Atlanta 27, Carolina 20

By Dena Krischer
Daily Sports Writer
CHICAGO - It wouldn't matter if
the game were played in bikinis, the
NCAA women's basketball league is just
not going to get the attention - or the
respect - that it so rightly deserves.
Basketball stars spent their Sunday
morning answering questions from
story-hungry reporters for an hour and a
half at the Big Ten women's basketball
media conference in Chicago, yesterday.
An hour and a half of redundant ques-
tions geared towards comments on last
year's season, outlooks on the upcoming
season and possible remarks on the dis-
heartening death of Purdue's Tiffany
Young this past summer due to an alco-
hol-induced car accident.
In one corner sat defending NCAA
champion Purdue, whose new coach,
Kristy Curry, took over the same
Boilermakers who beat Louisiana Tech,
in the Final Four last year.
In another corner sat the favored Penn
State, whose own center Andrea Garner
was voted Preseason Player of the Year
in the conference.
In another sat equally favored Illinois,
whose coach Susan Blauser is expected
to lead her team into the NCAA
Tournament.
The Big Ten is full of talented players,
some of which hope to one day make it
to the WNBA.
But what incentive do these female
athletes have, knowing that there are
many people out there who dislike the
up-and-coming association?
Some might argue, like FOX Sports'
The Last Word host Jim Rome did this
past summer, that women basketball
players lack the ability.
"Everybody's entitled to their own
opinion," Purdue senior forward

Michelle Duhart said. "I think that wa
totally out of control. You have to star
somewhere, and you have to build, and I
think women's basketball is definitely
taking the next step."
Some feel it's because the women's
game is played below the rim, much dif-
ferent from the men's 'let's see how higWF
we can jump' style of play.
"Just because you can't play above the
rim, doesn't mean the game is not excit- .,
ing,' Penn State senior guard Hele
Darling said. "I know people who lik
the women's game more because women
are more aggressive, defensively they'r1
more fundamentally sound, and it's a
team game instead ofjust, you know, the
all-star."'
But let's face it, the women's league
hasn't been appreciated because, wel,
it's the women's league. Who would want
to watch women play basketball when
the men's game is still so prominent?
"You have to separate the women
and the men's league to begin with
Curry said. "It's a different game. I think
it's tremendous to watch the level that
our game has gone to."
'Our game.' Precisely.
These women have single-handedliy
taken a sport that has been male-domi-
nant for years and turned it into some-
thing promising.
Something they can call their own.
Something, that in years to come, wl&
be more popular than ever expected.
"Will it get bigger than the NBA?
asked Michigan coach Sue Guevara, ns
though astounded at the idea. "No, it will
not get bigger than the NBA. But I think
that kids these days are getting better.
They know how to play the game. What
you can see now is female role models,
and all of a sudden, it's like, 'Hey, you
know what? That could be me one day."'
