of the year." a few players were wearing
different color jerseys signitying a
few line changes with which the coaches
"I think it's good from time to time to
put players in little different situations;"
Michigan coach Red Berenson said.
It's not that the previous lines weren't
successful, with the Wolverines averag-
ing nearly 3.8 goals per game, which
ranks them third in the CCH A, and tied
with Michigan State and Northern
Michigan at their familiar spot_- first
But players and coaches alike feel that
sometimes, change is good.
"There's so many qualified guys on
this team," Cammalleri said. "It gives us
an opportunity to play with different
guys, just to freshen things up and give
us little more jump."

In practice, instead of having senior
Mark Kosick on his left, Camnmlleri
found captain Geoff Koch, whom
Berenson feels will add "some size and
leadership" to the second line that also
features sophomore Jed Ortmever.
Kosick, who's four goals this season
are all on the power play, might see his
scoring chances increase as he is now
paired on the first line with the
Wolverines two leading scorers -
sophomore Andy Hlilbert (16 points) and
Josh Langfeld (14).
"Kosick is playing well," Berenson
said. " 1e's makes good plays and I think
he'll complement that line.''
Kosick would be taking senior Scott
Matzka's spot, with Matzka now adding
speed to the third line consisting of
sophomores Mark Mink and John
Although the season is still young and
there will be more changes yet to come,
the coaches were pleased with how these
additions performed yesterday.
"I think they're some pretty good
options," Berenson said after practice.
"We'll see how they pan out and see how
the chemistry goes. But they looked
pretty good today."

Rookie of the Year
With mixed results,

Ritt satisfied with frosh performance
NEW YORK (AP) - Kazuhiro
Sasaki woke up in Japan and found out
he had become the second-oldest rook-
ie of the year in baseball history.
"I did not think I was going to
receive this award because I did play in
Japan for 10 years," the Seattle
Mariners reliever said after winning the
American League award, overwhelm-
ingly defeating outfielders Terrence
Long of Oakland and Mark Quinn of
Kansas City in voting by the Baseball
Writers' Association of America.
Sasaki, a 32-year-old right-hander,
was Japan's career saves leader with
229 before signing with the Mariners
as a free agent last December

year as the Mariners won the ALs wild-

DETROIT (AP) -Tigers owner Mike

field for a new ballpark
and caused some
grousing among slug-
John Mcflale, the
Tigers president and
chief executive officer,
said Ilitch will decide soon
"He just hasn't decided vet, McHale
told The Detroit News for a story
Monday. "I think Mike has consulted
with a pretty broad range of people for
opinions, me included, and as I think
you can understand, my opinion
belongs to him."
Comerica's field stretches 398 feet in
,left-center and more than 385 feet to
right center, each angling toward a 430-
foot mark in center field.
The Tigers' power hitters -- Juan
Gonzalez, Dean Palmer and Bobby
Higginson - complained that the out-
field dimensions were excessively
deep. That's great for pitchers but cuts
down on the number of homeruns.
Any reconfiguring of the outfield
would likely be done before the start of
next season, McHale said.
PThe Tigers also are reviewing the
park's inaugural season, which drew
about 2.6 million fans, before deciding
on ticket prices for next year.
NBA tells Sprewell
to watch his words
NEW YORK (AP) Latrell
Sprewell of the New York Knicks was
told by NBA officials Monday to watch
*what he says about Chris Webber. No
fines or suspensions were imposed after
the league investigated possible tamper-
Sprewell, his agent and two offi-
cials from the players' union met
with the NBA's director of security
and the league's general counsel for
about 30 minutes, a league spokes-
"They basically explained to him
what the tampering rules are for players.
We're not going to take any disciplinary
action right now,' NBA spokeswoman
Teri Washington said.
Sprewell has told reporters that
Webber wants to play in New York.
Webber will be a free agent next sum-
mer, but the Sacramento Kings have
said they have no intention of trading
"We're trying to make it happen, man,
as soon as possible," Sprewell said of
*etting Webber to New York. "We're
working on it."

This weekend Michigan hosted the
ITA Midwestern Regional
Championship. It was Michigan's last
chance to test its skills against other
opponents until the regular season
begins in January.
After three days of competition,
only freshman Kavitha Tipirneni and
Christine Nolan were left in the main
draw of the championship. They were
also the only Wolverines to get aut0-
matic bids into the tournament's sin-
gles main draw and both made it to the
round of 16 before losing.
"The fact that we had two freshman
in the round of 16 is definitely a good
sign for us and I think as freshmen,
they did a great job and really had a
great tournament," Michigan coach
Bitsy Ritt said.
Both freshmen came off tournament
wins in the Marquette Invitational last
weekend. They have also spent the fall
season growing and adjusting to play
on the collage level. In the end, how-
ever, their inexperience and intimida-
tion would be deciding factors in their
"I could take this match and learn a
lot from it, including things I need to
work on in the off season" Tipirneni
1er freshmlan teammate Nolan beat
third-seeded Kara Monlony of
Cincinnati, one of the best players in
the Midwest, 6-1, 6-1, to advance to
the round of 16. Tipirneni then lost to
Leslie Caylan of Notre Dame (6-2, 6-
I ) in a match where she won many
hard fought points but was unable to
find the combinations to be success-
Ritt said the tournament demon-
strated that Tipirrleni could play on
level with some of the best players in
the region but is stricken with incon-
Christine Nolan played a tough 7-5,
6-4 match against Michelle Dasso
marked with her refusal to quit. Nolan
would twice come back from two-set
deficits or more. She was also down
40-15 in match point and forced
deuce, with great rallies before finally
"She keeps her composure, cal
co'pete uider pressure ald she does-
n t panic. In the end it was Michelle
who won it and n1t Chrissie who lost
it,' Ritt said.
Nolan seemed anxious at the begin-
ning, falling behind 3-1 before fight-
"Chrissie appeared a little intimidat-
ed, but then once she got into the
mhatch and started playing her points
smarter. I think she realized she could
play with her," Ritt said.
"This experience will help both of
these freshmen down the road and will
help speed up their growth rate. It is
what we do in our off season that will
"Our mission is to get better every
single day. With Kavitha and Chrissie,
there may be less work than expected.
