Orange crushed: Wolverines throttle Syracuse
Turnovers, post play key 'M' in 82-65 defeat of Orangewomen

By Benjamin Singer
Daly Spolis \vier-
Michigan wasn't wearing its home
whites for a reason.
"Yes, I am superstitious," Michigan
coach Sue Guevara said. "We did lose in
our white uniforms here at home.
Therefore we wore the Maize today."
If only Syracuse could have worn
Maize, too.
The Michigan women's basketball
team (6-2) outplayed Syracuse (4-3) in
nearly every aspect of the game to extend
its winning
K MvniuAN 82 streak to
five. The
STR-AC.sib l 65 82-65 score
reflected
the Wolverines' dominance last night at
Crisler Arena.
"Not one of our better ballgames, but
then, I think Michigan had something to
do with that," Svracuse coach Marianna
Freeman said. "We just didn't play a very
good basketball game."
Michigan's free throw performance
was one statistic that stood out --- the
\Volverines hit 28-of-31 from the line. In
the process, Michigan posted the ninth-
highest single-game percentage (90.3
percent) in progriam history.
In comparison, the Orangewomen
only mustered 8 of 19 from the charity
stripe.
But, Michigan didn't always need
to stand still to score - the
Wolverines also racked up 30 points

off Svracuse's 25 turnovers.
"When you're playing a good team
like Michigan, you can't beat your-
selves," Freeman said.
A common theme for Michigan of late
has been waiting until the second half to
pull away. Last night, it seemed that the
Wolverines thought the second half came
a little early. They put together an 8-0 run
late in the first half to go up 32-23 before
Syracuse started to keep pace, trailing
36-28 at the half.
But, the Orangewomen couldn't stay
with the Wolverines to start the second, as
Michigan opened up with an 8-2 run.
After 1uniorAlayne Ingram's 3-pointer to
start the second half. Michigan led by
double digits the rest of the way.
"I felt like we had enough time to get
back in it" Freeman said. "We have to
learn to fight through tough moments."
Guevara said she felt that her team did-
n't control the tempo in the first half. But,
at the midway mark in the second half
with a double-digit lead, the Wolverines
slowed Syracuse's offense. Michigan ran
down the clock on both ends of the court
to keep the Orangewomen at bay.
The Wolverines' only challenge in the
game was the battle for rebounds. With
Syracuse averaging 49 rebounds per
game coming in, Michigan knew that its
height advantage wasn't going to auto-
matically result in rebounds.
Sure enough, it wasn't until the 14:22
mark in the first half before LeeAnn Bies
crabbed Michigan's first rebound.
"We came out a little lackadaisical, not

On the down low.
The low post is fast becoming
Michigan's strength. Coach Sue
Guevara on several occasions has
referred to her inside players as
the twin towers - with three, she
could call them triplets. Freshman
Jennifer Smith, sophomore LeeAnn
Bies and junior Raina Goodlow
were key in the paint for
Michigan's blowout victory, espe-
eially in the first half.
Here's a look at the success that
the Michigan's inside game had
last night:

hustling so much," Bies said. "They are
an athletic team. They don't just stand
and let the ball come to them"
In the meantime, Syracuse's Leigh
Aziz had already pulled down five
boards, finishing the first half with eight.
But, Aziz didn't get a single rebound in
the second half, and at game's end, the
Wolverines had been outrebounded just
39-36.
Furthermore, Syracuse failed to take
advantage of its I5 offensive rebounds,
tallying just four second-chance points.
"When they got an offensive rebound,
we didn't just quit," Bies said. "You can't
just hang your head after you made a
mistake."
Michigan also did its job offensively in
the low post. A large chunk of the
Wolverines' first half scoring output
came from down low. 3ies, Jcnnifir
Smith and Raina Goodlow shot 9 of 12
from the floor while the rest of the team
hit just 3 of 18 in the first 20 minutes.
"I felt it was our strength at the time,"
Bies said. "Our guards can make the
shots and it's not a necessity that we carrv
the team. At that time our inside game
was really going for it."
