Crisman ends Michigan career
in usual fashion: as a champion

By Steve Jackson
Daily Sports Writer
Michigan swimmer Jen Crisman
accomplished something that few
athletes can. She went out as a
After leading the Wolverines to
their 13th Big Ten Title and an 18th
-place finish at the NCAA Charpi-
onships in her senior season,
Crisman had one final mountain to
climb - international competition.
Last week she led a contingent of
Michigan swimmers to the World
University Games in Beijing, China.
When the dust settled, Crisman
had three medals around her neck.
She competed in five different
events, winning a gold medal as part
of the United States' 400-meter
freestyle relay, a silver in the 400-
meter medley relay and a bronze in
the 100-meter freestyle. Crisman
posted lifetime bests in all five

"She swam really well," Michigan
coach Jim Richardson said. "This
was the last meet of her life, and she
ended things on a great note."
Her career as a swimmer may be
over, but she will still be able to be
seen swimming hard in'Canham
Crisman will be a member of the
water polo team this fall, while con-
tinuing her postgraduate education
at Michigan.
Crisman is anxiously awaiting the
beginning of the water polo season.
She was not able to compete much
last season due to her swimming
The Wolverines' other representa-
tive at the World University Games
was senior Lindsay Carlberg, who
placed sixth in the 200-meter back-
"Lindsay did great - this was her
first time competing overseas,"
Richardson said. "This should really
help her confidence for next year."

Richardson debated making the
trip himself, but when he saw the
price of the ticket he opted to stay at
"This is a great life experience for
the girls," Richardson said. "It's not
every day that you can visit China
and the Great Wall."
Michigan takes great pride in
placing swimmers in international
"That was our No. 1 goal from
day one," Richardson said. "That
was more important than Big Tens
or the NCAA Championships. I'm
happy - we met our goals by send-
ing Jen and Lindsay."
The journey begins anew for the
Wolverines in October. Michigan
will travel to face Florida in a dual
meet on the 19th and in a relay meet
the following day.
Senior breaststroker and medley
swimmer Andrea Kurrle and Carl-
berg will serve as captains during
the upcoming season.

scenario would be for his son to com-
plete his third year of school and then
sign after next year's draft, leaving him
with fewer credits to earn after turning
After June's draft, Hill pitched in the
Cape Cod league, which has produced
prime-time major leaguers such as
Boston's star, Nomar Garciaparra. Hill
had a 1-2 record with a 1.91 ERA in 33
innings over the summer.

League) would help me out a lot," Hill
Former Michigan pitcher and team-
mate Bobby Wood left after his junior
year to sign with the New York Yankees
after being selected in the 24th round of
last June's draft.

Jen Crisman has excelled in Canham Natatorium, and leaves the swimming world
with a plethora of accolades. She will now try her hand at water polo.

Sean Elliott's playing
days over for sure

SAN ANTONIO (AP) -- Former
San Antonio Spur Sean Elliott refuses
to say he's retiring, but he made it
clear yesterday his playing days are
probably over.
"I'm not going to sit here and
announce that," said the 33-year-old
forward who will be one of the team's
television analysts. Elliott battled
back from a kidney transplant in 1999
to keep playing.
"If something pops up, something
that's just extraordinary to make me
leave the microphone, then I may
jump at that opportunity," he said.
His two-year contract includes a
clause that allows him to return to the
court. But he acknowledged that
probably won't happen. He said he
didn't even play basketball this sum-
mer, spending more time on his golf
"I envision really. this whole year

I'll be behind the mike," he said.
"The longer you sit out, the tougher it
is to come back and play. Everybody
knows that.
"There's a lot of me that still wants
to play. Until that part of me decides
that I really don't want to play, it's
going to be tough on me," he said.
Even though Elliott refused to say
the word, others who have followed
his career consider him retired.
"A lot of people thought that Sean's
retirement would come with his kid-
ney replacement," said Lute Olson,
Elliott's college coach at Arizona.
"He was very determined at that point
to show that it (his return to the NBA)
could be done and make a statement
for anyone that would face it in the
Elliott has spent 11 of his 12 years
in the NBA with San Antonio. He
earned $5.2 million last season in the
final year of a six-year deal, but he
most likely would have had to take a
pay cut to keep playing with the
Spurs because of salary cap concerns.
Agent Armando Rios said this
week that Elliott turned down several
opportunities with other teams to
keep playing. He did not identify the
Elliott said he wasn't waiting to
hear from any particular team.
"I want to stay in San Antonio. If
there was a chance of me playing
somewhere else, it was going to have
to be somewhere real close," he said.
"I don't want to leave here right
Elliott served on the Spurs' radio-
TV crew in 1999-00 while recuperat-
ing from his kidney transplant. He
later did free-lance work as a studio
analyst for TNT during the NBA
"I'm excited about it," Elliott said
of his new contract. "I had fun with it
two years ago and I'm really going to
commit a lot of myself to it."
Limited by shoulder and knee
injuries, Elliott lost his starting posi-
tion to Danny Ferry and played just
19.9 minutes a game, averaging 7.9
points last season.
For his career, Elliott averaged 14.2
points and 4.3 rebounds a game and
was an All-Star in 1993 and 1996.

forgotten in the Pittsburgh Steel-

still is a locker with his name-

Apparently, getting some

why the Jacksoville Jaguars

the Steelers released him.

"That's old NFL stuff," Cough-
lin said. "We saw him (Battles)

some questions."

about any wrinkles in new offen-
