ATHLETE OF THE WEEK

Who: Josh Blackburn
Hometown: Choctaw, Okla.
Position: Goalie

Sport: Hockey
Year: Junior

13y Nawed SIkora
;Daily Sports Writer
The Michigan women's hockey club
remained perfect Saturday by defeating
Oakland 6-3 at the Troy Sports Center.
After falling behind early by a goal, the
Wolverines came on strong in the final
two periods to take the lead and seal the
victory.
With the win, Michigan improved its
already-flawless record to 14-0-1. It was
the team's fourth consecutive win after its
1-1 tie with Western Michigan, and the
fifth time this year it scored six or more
goals in a single game.
Coming off a long holiday break, it
was important for the Wolverines to find
the momentum they had at the start of the
season to continue their impressive unde-
feated streak. .
"We came out very rusty last night,"
forward Caren Scott said. "But, we came
out with a win, and that is what's impor-
tant"
Although Oakland jumped ahead

early, Michigan was able to pick up the
slack fairly quickly and come back to
take the lead. By the end of the second
period, the score was 4-2 in favor of the
Wolverines.
Michigan junior Stacey Kilarski was
impressive in the victory, tallying two
third-period goals in a single shift to put
Michigan up for good. Captain Tory
Deleeuwy also added a goal in the win-
ning effort.
Michigan will now come home to play
top intrastate rival Michigan State at Yost
Ice Arena. The teams will compete
Friday at 7 p.m. and Saturday at 9 p.m.
"Next week against Michigan State
will be one of the biggest games we play
all year" Scott said.
The Wolverines are not only looking to
finish the season undefeated, but they are
also looking to repeat as league champi-
ons.
"It's always difficult to play as the
number one team in a division," Scott
said. "But we have done a good job so far
and we have to keep it up this weekend."

Why: Blackburn came back with a vengeance from giving up 14 goals in
60 shots in the GLI the previous weekend by registering two consecutive
shutouts over Lake Superior. In steering aside all 49 shots the Lakers
sent his way, Blackburn earned his sixth and seventh career shutouts
Background: Drafted by the Phoenix Coyotes in 1998 (115th overall) Blackburn

SPORTSBRIEFS

Seton Hall suspends
superfrosh Griffin
SOUTH ORANGE, N.J. (AP) -
Freshman star Eddie Griffin and
senior Kevin Wilkins were suspend-
ed by Seton Hall for yesterday's
game against Notre Dame for violat-
ing unspecified team rules.
Coach Tommy Amaker released a
statement yesterday that referred to
Seton Hall's 78-66 loss to No. 19
Georgetown on Saturday.
Junior point guard Ty Shine was
seen leaving the locker room with a
bandage below his right eye - cov-
ering an injury he did not have
when he left the court following the
game.
University officials would not
comment on how Shine was injured,
of whether it was related to the sus-
pensions of Griffin and Wilkins.
Griffin has averaged 19.6 points,
13.2 rebounds and 5.3 blocks, lead-
ing the Pirates in all three.
Spartans' Hill to
enter NFL Draft
EAST LANSING (AP) - Michigan
7State senior cornerback Renaldo Hill is
passing up a chance for a fifth year of
eligibility to enter the NFL Draft.
Hill, a three-year starter, could have

petitioned the NCAA for a fifth year if
he completed his undergraduate degree
prior to the opening of preseason camp
in August.
"With the academic course load I
needed to carry to graduate, it would
have been nearly impossible for me to
get all of the work done," Hill said in a
statement Saturday on the Michigan
State athletic department's Web site.
"I certainly think I could have bettered
my position for the NFL Draft with
another season in college, but it's in my
best interest to enter the draft now."
Gonzalez close to
signing with Tribe
CLEVELAND (AP) - Bad back
and overpriced. Those were the main
reasons the Cleveland Indians showed
little interest in signing free agent slug-
ger Juan Gonzalez.
And then Manny Ramirez left.
Now Gonzalez is reportedly close to
signing a one-year, $12 million contract
to replace Ramirez in right field for
Cleveland and hit cleanup in the
Indians' batting order.
Gonzalez said in Friday's editions of
El Nuevo Dia in Puerto Rico that he
chose the Indians because he likes to hit
at the Jake, and because of his close rela-
tionships with Cleveland All-Star sec-
ond baseman Roberto Alomar and out-
fielder Wil Cordero.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP)-
All the New York Giants needed to put
the Philadelphia Eagles in a hole this
time was the opening kickoff.
After that, Jason Sehorn and the
defense simply made life miserable for
Donovan McNabb.
Ron Dixon raced 97 yards
untouched with the opening kickoff
and Sehorn tipped a ball to himself
and scored on a spectacular 32-yard
interception return as the Giants
defeated the Eagles 20-10 yesterday
to advance to the NFC title game for
the first time since 1990.
The Giants will host Minnesota
next week for the right to go to
Tampa, Fla., on Jan. 28 for the Super
Bowl. The Vikings beat New Orleans
34-16 on Saturday.
The victory was the Giants' sixth
straight since coach Jim Fassel guar-
anteed that the team would make the
playoffs for the first time since '97,
but this one was by far their worst
performance in the streak.
Luckily, it came against a team

Baltiore
shocks Titans

NASHVILLE (AP) - In one cor-
ner was the illustrious Ray Lewis. In
the other were two total unknowns.
Together, they sent the Baltimore
Ravens into the AFC title game.
Baltimore's Keith Washington
blocked a field-goal attempt and
Anthony Mitchell returned it 90 yards
for the go-ahead score as the Ravens
again brought out the worst in place-
kicker Al Del Greco in beating the
Tennessee Titans 24-10 yesterday.
Lewis, the NFL's defensive player
of the year, clinched it with a 50-yard
interception return after wrestling the
ball from the arms of Eddie George.
The two touchdown returns
accounted for more yards than
Baltimore's offense, which was held
to 134 yards.
The Ravens now go to Oakland to
play the Raiders this Sunday in the
conference title game, the first time
the franchise has been that far since
the then-Cleveland Browns lost to
Denver in1989.
The Titans, who were a yard away
from tying the Super Bowl last sea-
son, go home after posting the NFL's
best regular-season record at 13-3 to
ponder how to add punch to their
offense.

The Giants tried to be gene s
against the Eagles this time, turning
the ball over three times, but Sehorn,
Michael Strahan (two sacks) and the
rest of the defense confounded
McNabb for the third time thi$ sea-
son.
He was sacked six times for 41
yards in losses and the Eagles were
limited to 186 total yards.
McNabb, who was 20-for-41 for
181 yards and one interception, -

until a blocked punt set up a 10-yard
TD pass to Torrance Small. But the
Giants recovered the onside kick and
ran out the clock.

OAKLAND (AP) -Tory James*-
n't wait until he reached the end zone to
start celebrating.
The Oakland cornerback high-
stepped for the final 25 yards of his 90-
yard interception return that started the
Raiders on a 27-0 rout of the Miami
Dolphins on Saturday.
The victory sent Oakland to the AFC
championship game for the first time
since the 1990 season.
The Raiders, who have not been in the
playoffs since 1993, will play Baltire
next weekend.
Rich Gannon completed 12 of 18
passes for 143 yards and a touchdown.
Tyrone Wheatley ran for another score
and rookie Sebastian Janikowski kicked
two field goals.
The Dolphins, who had won three
straight regular-season games in
Oakland, couldn't overcome a 20-0 first-
half deficit. The Raiders have allo d
only two touchdowns in their las 5
quarters at home.
It was the latest postseason humilia-
tion for the Dolphins, who have been
beaten by the combined score of 127-10
at this stage of playoffs the last three
years.

guys' hands," Daunte Culpepper said
after throwing for three touchdowns in
leading Minnesota past New Orleans
34-16 Saturday.
Displaying the firepower that made
them the second-highest scoring team in
the NFC, Minnesota advanced te
conference championship game.
Randy Moss caught touchdown pass-

a 17-yard touchdown reception and
