Then: Blue

Irish 9-0
By Jon Schwartz .
Daily Sports Writer ::., >:;, "' {*

Michigan coach Red Berenson was nervous
that his seventh-ranked Wolverines would look
past Notre Dame this week and think only
about Saturday night's game against No. 1
Michigan State.
But as the team proved last night with a 9-0
annihilation, it was ready for anything and
everything that the Fighting Irish (3-12-4
CCHA, 5-18-5 overall) could throw at it.
"Every game you win, you get two points,"
Michigan senior Mark Kosick said. "We're not
in first place right now -- we're trying to come
from behind. Every game is huge for us."
Led on by hat tricks from Mike Cammalleri
and Mark Kosick, the Wolverines (12-4-2, 18-
6-4) succeeded in keeping last-place Notre
Dame from becoming another Alaska-
Fairbanks or Ferris State -- teams at the bot-
tom of the CCHA that found ways to knock off
Michigan.
"This is an exceptional night for this team,"
Berenson said. "I think the momentum from
Saturday's game (a 4-4 comeback tie against
Western Michigan) really carried over."
The only suspense in the made-for-TV
Tuesday night game was who else would score
a hat trick. Michigan was able to put two goals
past Notre Dame's senior goalie Kyle Kolquist
by the 3:02 point of the first period, all but end-
ing the Irish's chances right there.
That was the least of their worries.
Kolquist, looking for his first career win,
lasted just 25:45, compliments of goals by
Michigan's John Shouneyia, Cammalleri,
Kosick and Mike Roemensky - staking the
Wolverines out to a 4-0 advantage before Notre
Dame coach Dave Poulin knew what hit him.
"The first one was a dead giveaway and they
capitalized and the second one went off
(Cammalleri's) skate." Poulin said. "F-om that

Ellerbe
hopes fouls
will subside
By Dan Williams
Daily Sports Writer
When Michigan attempts to avenge its
80-51 loss to Illinois Thursday, basket-
ball coach Brian Ellerbe hopes his play-
ers aren't the only ones that improve.
In the Jan. 13 game in Champaign,
Michigan was whistled for a remarkable
27 fouls. Michigan's top-three big men,
Josh Moore, Josh Asselin and Chris
Young, all fouled out in the contest.
"We probably didn't foul 27 times,"
Ellerbe said. "We did make some
inquiries to the Big Ten office after (the
game)"
The NCAA warned teams prior to the
season that they planned to crack down
on rough play. Michigan will bring offi-
cials to practice three times this week as
the players continue adapting to the
stricter rule enforcement.
If Michigan has been knee-deep in
foul trouble this season, Moore has been
completely buried. The freshman has
fouled out in three of five Big Ten games
this season, and he is averaging a foul
every two minutes in conference play.
"When you're 7-2, you've got guys
draped all over you," Moore said. "Any
movement that you make looks like
you're dislodging somebody. Every time
I move, a guy falls.
"I'm not going to be like Rasheed
Wallace here and say it's all on the refs. I
have to take a little accountability here"
INGERSON'S STATUS WITH MICHIGAN
UNCHANGED: Ellerbe said that Michigan
is not having second thoughts about
Dommanic Ingerson, one of next year's
recruits.
Ingerson was suspended indefinitely
from his Santa Barbara, Calif. high
school team last Wednesday by his
coach, Jeff Lavender, for poor behavior
on the court. Ingerson reportedly wiped
sweat on a ball before handing it to the
referee following a call he disagreed
with.
"I think Jeff Lavender is handling it as
well as he can possibly handle it. You
have to hold your kids accountable,"
Ellerbe said. "There's not a whole lot we
can do, he's not a part of our program
right now."
Ellerbe is unconcerned that time away
from the court will leave Ingerson at a
basketball disadvantage.
"Playing another month of high
school is not going to change what type
of player he is," Ellerbe said. "A lot of it
has to do with him growing up."
SWITCH HITTER: Michigan fresh-
man quarterback Jermaine Gonzales is
now officially a member of the men's
basketball team, having practiced with
the squad since Monday.
The 6-foot-4 Gonzales teamed up
with fellow Michigan freshman Maurice
Searight at Orchard Lake St. Mary's
High School, where the pair won a state
championship.
"There's no indication that we would
ever even play him," Ellerbe said. "It's a
hard thing to judge - he hasn't been on
the floor at all. We may be able to use
him defensively at some point."

And now: Ieers' focus shifts to No.1 State

THE DAILY'S STARS
The Michigan Daily hockey writers' picks for
Michigan's three stars of the game.
MARK KOSICK
CENTR
If scoring a hat trick doesn't break a slump,
what does?
MIKE CAMMALLERI
CENTER
Is one hat trck in a game enough? Thought
not. Cammalleri didn't either. He matched
Kosicks feat with three goals of his own.
OH BLACKBURN'
bALIE
While Michigan scored nine goals, few real-
ized that Blackburn was a brick wall in net.
SATURDAY
JOE Louis ARENA
Who: No. 7 Michigan (1242 CCHA,1864overall) vs.
No.1 Michigan State (14-1-3,21-14)
When: 7:35p.m.
Latest:There are still tickets available for the second of
four r iatchups this season between the intrastate rivals.
They are available at all TicketMaster outlets.

"I stopped enjoying it with five minutes left in
the game," said Mike Cammalleri about notching
his first career hat trick in Michigan's 9-0 drub-
bing of Notre Dame last night.
The Wolverines unleashed the fury on a last-
place Notre Dame team with their highest scoring
output of the season, a game that included hat
tricks by Cammalleri and Mark Kosick.
But there was only one thing on the players'
minds after the game -- No.
1 Michigan State. HOCKEY
The much-anticipated Notebook
showdown is just three days
away, and with momentum
having so much weight in college hockey, the
~ Wolverines hope to carry it into Joe Louis Arena
come Saturday night.
"It's especially important for a team like State,
seeing that they play such great defense," said
Kosick, who remembers the Spartans knocking
off then-No. I Michigan, 1-0 on November 4 of
this season. "If we can go out there and lay every-
thing on the line the first ten minutes of the game
and hopefully try get a couple goals, it'll be a dif-
ferent game."
The Wolverines will be trying to keep pace
with the red-hot Spartans, who are unbeaten in
their last 23 games (20-0-3) and have shut out
their last three opponents.
Michigan State holds a five-point lead on the
Wolverines in the race for the coveted CCHA
title, with only 15 league games remaining.
"Every game with State is a battle," defense-
man Andy Burnes said. "No matter who we play
before, no matter who they play before. It's going

to be a war going in there Saturday night."
With the Spartans holding the top defense and
goaltender in the nation, the Wolverines know
they'll have their hands full - and probably wish
that they could have saved some of last night's
offensive firepower for Saturday.
"Both teams are going to be flying," Burnes
said. "We've got to be ready as a team. This game
(against Notre Dame) will be a good stepping
stone for Saturday night.
UNLUCKY IRISH: After last night's victory,
Notre Dame is now 1-3-33 in its last 37 games
against Michigan, and 0-15-0 in its last 15 regu-
lar season games at Yost Ice Arena.
"It's offense, it's defense, I mean you name the
aspect of hockey and we didn't execute it
tonight," said Notre Dame coach Dave Poulin
after the loss.
ROTATING HEADS: Inconsistency between the
pipes has hampered the Irish all season, with
three netminders switching spots on a game-to-
game-to game basis. Notre Dame has given up
four goals or more on 14 different occasions this
year, including nine games with over five goals
allowed.
"I sat them down in December and told them,
if you win - you play," Poulin said. "End of
conversation."
BULLSEYE: It seemed like Michigan was at a
shooting gallery on the offensive end, posting a
season-high 51 shots while holding the Irish to
only 21. The last time the Wolverines tallied nine
goals in a game was this past February 12th in a
9-3 victory over Western Michigan at Yost.
BACK ON TRACK: While last night marked the
first time Cammalleri lit the lamp for three goals,
Kosick recorded the second hat trick of his career
on his way to a four-point game - something

that can only help the confidence of a senior who
has struggled the past few months.
"I just like to thank God for helping me get
through this last month," said Kosick about his
previous nine-game goal-scoring drought, not
including the three games for which he was
benched. "I haven't been playing up to my top
potential this past couple months and I have to
start doing that to help this team."
Kosick has five points in the last two games,
including the game-tying goal against Western
Michigan this past Saturday.
STREAKING: With four assists against Notre
Dame, sophomore Andy Hilbert extended his
scoring streak to a career-high 15 games.
Also, after Cammalleri's nine-game scoring
streak ended in a 3-1 loss to Ohio State on
January 12, he's started a new four-game binge.
In those games, he's notched 10 points, including
three goals and an assist last night.
DOwN BUT NOT OUT: Michigan forwards Jed
Ortmever and Scott Matzka each left last
night's game early due to nagging injuries.
Ortmeyer's knee cap "kind of popped out and
back in" in the first period according to
Michigan coach Red Berenson, and Matzka sat
out the third period after bruising his hand.
Berenson said he hopes they will both be ready
for the weekend.

Jock rock,M' athletes step up to the mic

By Kristen Fidh
Daily Sports Writer
They fight through 300-pound
linemen to score game-winning
touchdowns in front of over 100,000
fans.
They represent their respective
countries against the best in the
*rld.
They handspring, flip, twist and
tumble to a No. 1 ranking.
But one crucial question is still
unanswered -- can Michigan's ath-
letic elite become pop stars
overnight?
In the second-annual Mock Rock,
over 100 varsity athletes will lip-
sync, dance and entertain an expec-
t crowd tonight at the Michigan
eatre.
Performing in front of a profes-
sional judging panel -- including
athletic director Bill Martin and for-
mer running back Jamie Morris -
members of the Michigan athletic
community will battle for the highly-

American field hockey player Kelli
Gannon as well as members of the
volleyball, water polo, rowing and
football teams will grace the stage.
As a charity event, the concert will
raise funds with the purpose of pur-
chasing books for Detroit public
schools and endowing the Jeff Reese
Scholarship Fund.
"One of our goals this year was to
bridge the gap between student-ath-
letes and the community," Haudan
said. "We see these as good places to
give the money."
Last year, proceeds totaled over
$7,000 and with repeated success,
both causes will benefit.
The Jeff Reese Scholarship Fund
began in January 1998, just after the
death of Michigan wrestler Jefferey
Reese on December 9, 1997.
Known for his unyielding work
ethic and school enthusiasm, Reese
died after exercising while wearing a
rubber suit. He was trying to shed 22
pounds in four days, preparing for
the competition against Michigan

- easily within reach after tonight's
event.
"The student body has done a
great job of making money the last
couple of years," McFarland said.
"This is fun, too. We have been so
busy between having afternoon prac-
tice and school work, but the guys
did put something together at the last
minute - they're pretty good
dancers."
Maybe Drew Henson will come in
a tutu.
Be prepared.
Doors open at 7 p.m. and the cur-
tain rises at 7:30.
