Loss snowballs
for Woodson
From wire reports
ALAMEDA, Calif. - Former Michigan cornerback
Charles Woodson and his teammate, offensive tackleLincoln
Kennedy took exception to the actions of Broncos' fans after
the Raiders; 27-21 overtime loss Monday night, and as a
result, Woodson faces charges, while Kennedy has filed a
complaint of his own.
The Raiders were angry about attacks they said occurred
throughout their loss at Mile High Stadium in Denver and
intensified as they left the field.
Moments after the game, Woodson allegedly hurled a
snowball that struck a female fan in the face and Kennedy
went after a fan who had hit him in the face with a snowball.
"I do know a lot of people were concerned for their own
safety late in that ball game," Raiders coach Jon Gruden said.
"It was an ugly scene, dangerous."
Several Raiders sought an apology yesterday from Broncos
officials and Gruden said he expected a league investigation.
Defensive tackle Grady Jackson said a snowball thrown near
him contained a battery.
"It was surprising. I would have understood that if we had
won the game," Raiders' tight end Rickey Dudley said. "But

Ugly start turns into fab finish.
as 'M' freshmen rock Crisler
By David Den Herder
Daily Sports Writer
Michigan slammed home the most exciting comeback at,
Crisler Arena in two years last night, and in the process passed
the first test of its young season.
From the opening tip, things looked ugly for the Wolverines.
After two tries at a clean tipoff, the ball dribbled out of bounds
and belonged to Michigan. But it was the game that belonged
to Detroit for nearly the entire first half, and most of the sec-
ond.
Gutsy play from its freshmen earned Michigan, in the end,
an exhilarating 66-62 victory and the right to advance unbeat-
en in the nonconference season at 2-0.
Appropriately, the first points of the game for the Titans
came from their star senior guard, Rashad Phillips. That was
the start of an 11-0 run for Detroit, and a chorus of miscues by
the Wolverines. Shot after shot clanged off the iron for
Michigan, as the jumpers flowed on the other end of the floor.
Freshman Kevin Gaines did his best to guard Phillips, but
could do little to deter his 13 first-half points - most of which
came from 3-point land. Twice, Michigan blew rebounds with
two maize jerseys on the same ball, and even the ones :
Michigan came down witheseemed to slip away.
Center Josh Asselin apparently had his mitts on a defensive
rebound that subsequently fell to the floor and rolled between
his legs-- into the hands of the Titan double-press for a quick
two. But as true veterans do, Asselin redeemed himself on the
next play, recognizing a double team in the post and finding
LaVell Blanchard open to draw the foul. That, and an ensuing
3-pointer by Gavin Groninger, were the few shining moments
in a half that saw Michigan shoot .250 from the field. Worse,
freshman guard Jamal Crawford had shot .000. Worse still, he
had attempted nine shots.
"Never for a second did I think we would lose," Crawford
said after the game.SMHLESEDD

Women
open at
home
tonight
By Michael Kern
Daily Sports Writer
With victories over Colorado an
Colorado State on the road this pas
weekend, the Michigan women's basket-
ball team opened the regular season with
a 2-0 record. Now it heads into a three-
game homestand starting tonight against
Cincinnati.
Carrying the lead for the majority of
the game, the Wolverines battled the thin
Colorado air. to start the season with
back-to-back wins for the third time in
Michigan coach Sue Guevara's four-year
tenure.
"I was pleased with the way we kep
our composure," Guevara said. "We
were only behind once in both games
when we were behind 1-0 to Colorado
State."
The key against Colorado State for the
Wolverines was rebounding, as they out-
rebounded the Rams 52-32.
"That's one of the few teams that we
will be bigger than," Guevara said.-
"They're small and aggressive, but 4*
did a good job of attacking the boards,
which is something we've been working
on.
Now Michigan turns its attention back
to Crisler. Facing three opponents that
they seem to top on paper, the
Wolverines will have the opportunity to
start the season 5-0 for the first time
since 1996-97 -- Guevara's first year at
Michigan.
"When you go on the road you alwayY
want to try and steal one game," GuevaW
said. "But one of the things we need to
work on as a team is protecting our own
home court. We lost two games here at
home last year that I think kept us out of
the NCAA Tournament."
Cincinnati (1-0) finished in first place
in Conference USA and made the
NCAA Tournament last season but lost
three starters. With a young fronteouri,
the Bearcats will rely heavily on defenr
and strong guard play.
"They're a very aggressive and scrap-
py team," Guevara said. "They are a very
athletic team that likes to penetrate. They
go to the boards well, and they are in
your shorts defensively."Cincinnati is led
by senior guard Madinah Slaise, who
averaged 197 noints and five rebounds.
