they're the new boys in the conference."
Nebraska-Omaha is in its second year of
CCHA play.
Win or lose, the important thing for
ichigan hockey's most loyal fans was simply
to celebrate a good time together while watch-
ing the sport they love.
When asked if it would be an early night,
McKenzie laughed.
'There'snever an early night on the road," he
said.
ORTMEYER, HILBERT UPDATES: Injured
winger Jed Ortmeyer received a second opin-
ion on his injured right knee while in his home-
town Omaha this weekend.
According to Ortmeyer, the doctor echoed
the sentiment of the first opinion - stay off
the ice.
Ortmeyer plans to weigh his options in the
coming week before deciding on whether to
' undergo season-ending surgery.
Berenson said he hasn't spoken to Ortmeyer
on the doctor's verdict, but believes the news is
not much better than was originally believed.
"I think Jed wanted to get the opinion, think
about it and talk to his family;" Berenson said.
"I can't tell you a decision has been made, but
I think it's going in the direction" of Ortmeyer
sitting out the remainder of the season.
Ortmeyer tore his anterior cruciate ligament

on Jan. 23 against Notre Dame.
Andy Hilbert left the ice early in practice
yesterday, with a tightened hip courtesy of a
check he took in front of the Michigan bench
on Friday night. Berenson urged Hilbert not to
chance it if it started to act up in practice.
"I told him to get off the ice if he started
favoring it," Berenson said. "He should be
ready for the weekend" against Northern
Michigan.

BIG TEN

far as winning the regular season
title.
"There is no question thait whoev-
er wins the game has a leg up on the
other people," Michigan State coach
Tom Izzo said.
ANOTHER ONE BITES TIE DUST:
With nine straight losses to start the
Big Ten season, Northwestern finds
itself not just at the bottomn of the
Big Ten again but also wfthout a
conference win since March 3,
1999 when it beat Penn State in the
first round of the Big Ten
Tournament.
The pressure is mounting on
Carmody and his players to get that
first win.
We are "0-9 right now and vwith no
wins last year," Carmody said. "We
are just trying to see if we can break
through somehow."
The pressure is also on the
Wildcats' Big Ten opponents not to
be the first team to give them a con-
ference win in over a year and a
half. Next on the list is 3-6
Minnesota.
"Northwestern is going to win
games in this league. It's just a mat-
ter of time," Minnesota coach Dan
Monson said. "Hopefully it won't be
(tonight)."
Rose loses 250K in
jewelry at Milwaukee
MILWAUKEE (AP) - Cash amd
jewelry totaling as much as $250,0
were stolen from former Michigan bas-
ketball player Jalen Rose of the Indiana
Pacers during a game at the Bradley*
Center, police said.
Custom jewelry worth betweeln
$200,000 and $250,000 was later found
under some seats at the arena and
returned to the star guard, but more
than $2,000 in cash remained missing
yesterday, Lt. John Andrews said.
Police said Rose and the rest of the-
Pacers had given their money and jew-
elry to an attendant before the. game
with the Milwaukee Bucks on Saturday 0
night. The others got their valuables
back without any problems.
Suns' Robinson caught
driving drunk with pot

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) -
Clifford Robinson of the Phoenix Suns
was arrested yesterday on charges of
driving under the influence and mari-
juana possession.
Robinson was driving 55 mph in a
40 mph zone and weaving in and out of
lanes about 1:30 a.m., police
spokesman Scott Reed said.
"There was the odor of alcohol com-
ing from his car and his eyes were
watery and bloodshot," Reed said.
The player was released about three
hours after he was picked up.
Robinson initially refused to get out,
of his car and twice refused a field
sobriety test, Reed said. He later sub-
mitted to a blood test but his blood-
alcohol level will not be known for sev-
eral days.
Officers also found a small foil pack-
et of what they believed to be marijuana
and a pipe, Reed said. The marijuana
possession charge was pending, await-
ing lab verification of the substance.
Stone Cold: XFL
stuns the competition
NEW YORK (AP) - The XFL
and NBC must be X-cited about the
TV rating for the fledgling football
league's debut broadcast.
Mixing guerrilla television tactics
and salacious shots of scantily clad
cheerleaders with mediocre on-field
action, the XFL's inaugural broad-
cast drew a preliminary overnight
rating of 10.3 with a 17 share.
That means an average of 10.3
percent of TV homes in the United
States were tuned in at any given
moment Saturday night for the game
between the Las Vegas Outlaws and
the New York/New Jersey Hitmen.
The rating gave NBC a prime-time
victory over the other networks
Saturday and is more than double
what advertisers were told to expect
for the league.
By comparison, Game 1 of last
year's World Series drew a 14.0
overnight rating on a Saturday night
for Fox.
