DAILY TRIVIA RESULTS
AND THE WINNER IS ...
By answerin 10 questions correctly (including an
insanely diffult one about Geoff K 's music prefer-
ences - Dave Matthews Band, by the way), four people
qualified to win two tickets to this weekend's Michigan-
.Michigan State hockey game at Joe Louis Arena.
Since the Daily could only afford four tickets (and who
wants to go to a game with three people that you don't
S - , know?) two were chosen from the qualifiers to win a
pair of tickets. The names were pulled out of a hat.
To Anne Deptula, Christina Chopra and our two winners,
our knowledge of matters relating to the Michigan
ockey team is somewhat alarming. Everyone at The
Michigan Daily hopes that you were aide by a media
guide.
But now for the winners: Gary Levenbach and Alan Hibino both survived
the Daily's trial. They ot all 10 questions correct, and their names sur-,
vived the final test - the beaten-up Michigan hat.
if you are in attendance on Saturday night, head over to section 102,
row 3, seats 1-4 and meet two people that must be slipping money to
Michigan hockey players under the table in exchange for answers.
Because really, who knows that Mel Pearson's birthday is February 5?
Keep reading the Daily for future contests.

This past weekend, the Michigan
women's water polo team traveled to the
Princeton Invitational for its first compe-
tition as a varsity team.
The Wolverines began the weekend
by stomping Villanova 18-6. Michigan
was led by sophomore two-meter
Stephanie Morse and junior two-meter
Maribeth Sitkowski, who both posted
hat tricks in their first varsity contest.
With momentum from the first match
behind it, Michigan dominated
Massachusetts 8-3 and proceeded to fin-
ish off Hartwick 11-4, finishing the day
unblemished. Assistant Coach Bernice
Orwig called the Massachusetts victory
the most impressive win of the weekend
- the Minutemen were ranked fifth at
the end of last season. The Wolverines
were lead by Morse who scored two
goals, and freshman goalie Camille

Clarendon who tallied seven saves ver-
sus Massachusetts. Clarendon, wh*
added eight saves in the Hartwic
match, was helped by a hat trick from
junior utility Mandi Hagedorn along
with freshman two-meter Julie Nisbet
who scored two goals in the victory.
On the final day of the invitational,
Hawaii handed Michigan its first loss of
the season 12-6. The Wolverines
rebounded quickly after the loss, stomp-
ing Princeton 14-5 in its own invitational.
Making this victory even more phe-
nomenal is the fact that goalie Camil
Clarendon did not play in the match.
probably would not have mattered who
was in goal, given the performances by
Sitkowski who scored goals and Megan
Hayes who added four goals.

By Jim Weber
Daily Sports Writer
At the final practice prior to the sec-
ond-annual Big Ten Taekwondo
Tournament yesterday, club president
Joshua Rosenblatt stressed resiliency to
his team.
"The first time you get whacked
upside the head, you are going to want
to stop'" Rosenblatt said. "Don't."
At the time, Rosenblatt obviously had
no way of knowing that team member
Han Jo Kim would - get "whacked."
During the men's advanced semifinal
match, Kim was kicked in the head after
the referee stopped action, resulting in a
bloody nose and eye along with a trip to
the hospital.
Taekwondo, a sport that resembles
kick-boxing, consists of martial artists
kicking in the chest and head to draw
points from the judges or a knockout
blow. The competition takes place in
two rounds of one-and-a-half minutes or
two-minute. intervals. The competitor
with the most points - or the one left
standing -is declared the winner of the
match.
As a result of the cheap shot Kim
took outside of these rounds, his oppo-
nent was disqualified, and Kim's three-
member men's advanced unit went on to
win the event. This contribution was one
of many successes for the Wolverines as
they ended up winning the tournament.
"We have got a lot of motivation to
win because this is our home field,"
said Chrissy Dallas about the team's
attitude.
But, this tournament was about more
than just a Big Ten Championship.
"We are trying to make a good
impression since we are trying to beef
up our status at the University of
Michigan," explained Dallas.
Although it will take a long time,

Rosenblatt said one of the long term
goals for the team is to obtain varsity-
club status, a significant upgrade from
the club label. Currently, all of travel
and equipment costs are handled inde-
pendently. But if the club were to
achieve varsity-club status, it would
receive "significant support from the
University."
"Basically, we have this plan. As we
grow more and more competitive, more
and more people will get interested,"
said Rosenblatt.
In order to increase its level of com-
petition, the team is starting intercolle-
giate activity and trying to get as many
teams involved in the Big Ten
Tournament as possible. The tourna-
ment ended up with five schools -
Michigan, Michigan State, Purdue,
Ohio State and Indiana.
The club also worked hard to increase
attendance at the Sports Coliseum by
spreading the word about the tourna-
ment. Along with posting flyers across
campus, the members encouraged
friends and family to come by word of
mouth and via e-mail. Brendan Gray,
one of the students in attendance, point-
ed out the most important aspect of the
marketing scheme - "I came because it
was free. That was a great idea"
The extensive campaigning appeared
to work.
"There are about 30 percent more
people here (than last year)," Kim
guessed. "We got a good turnout." It
appears that the sport and team also has
a new fan in Gray, who said, "I want to
try it. If I had some extra time, I'd be out
here."
Rosenblatt's plan also appears to be
working a little earlier than expected, as
student Daniel Lee said he hopes the
team achieves Varsity-club status.
As a resident of South Quad and reg-
ular attendant of the cafeteria, Lee
found one expense he thinks that could
make way for Taekwondo on the
University expense list.
"They make me pay for that food?
Come on."

Iverson named MVP
as East edges West
WASHINGTON D.C. (AP) -
Turns out the West isn't all that better
than the East. Anyone who said so
this season - and anyone who said
so early in the fourth quarter yester-
day spoke a little too soon.
Allen Iverson turned that notion on
its head with an outstanding fourth-
quarter performance that transformed
the NBA All-Star game from a
blowout into a thriller .as he led the
Eastern Conference to an improbable
111-110 victory.
Iverson scored 15 of his 25 points
in the final nine minutes, and
Stephon Marbury hit two 3-pointers
in the final 53 seconds as the East
came back from a 21-point deficit.
While presenting the MVP award
to Iverson, NBA commissioner David
Stern, with a sly grin on his face, told
Iverson that great basketball "can be
wrapped - if you pardon the expres-
sion - in very small packages."
The East trailed 95-74 with nine
minutes left after the West dominated
the first 39 minutes of the game
behind its superior size. It appeared
the game would come out looking
like a mismatch' that would back up
all the Western Conference superiori-

PORTsBRIEFS

ty theories that have been thro
around so frequently this season.
But the East started pecking away,
and Iverson walked over to the scor-,
er's table during a timeout and asked
if anyone wanted to wager whether
the East would make a comeback.
That's exactly what the East pro-
ceeded to do, with Jerry Stackhouse
and Vince Carter making 3-point
shots that were followed by a three-
point play by Iverson to cut the Wes*
lead to 100-96.
Iverson scored the East's next two
points from the line, and Tracy
McGrady tied it on a putback with
3:10 left.
Thousands witness
implosion of Three
Rivers Stadium
PITTSBURGH (AP) - A clcud
of dust went up, and Three Rivers
Stadium came down.
Yesterday saw the end of the site
of one of football's most famous
plays and a Pittsburgh pro sports
resurgence in the 1970s.
Thousands of onlookers cheered
the implosion of the 30-year-6d
home of the Pirates and Steelers.
Experts loaded 4,800 pounds 5
dynamite into the mammoth circular
stadium last week to clear the way
for separate baseball and football
stadiums nearby.
The stadium's western wall tum-
bled inward and the rest of the struc-
ture collapsed into a cloud of dust.
The implosion lasted about 19 sec-
onds.
"This is a very bittersweet day f
me," Mayor Tom Murphy said.
Three Rivers opened in 1970 at a
cost of $36 million. It immediately
boosted the sagging fortunes of the
Pirates and Steelers.
