Shell-shocked:
Badger bombs
sink 'M'89-74
By Jim Weber
Daily Sports Writer
The Michigan women's basketball team seriously jeopard-
ized its chances for a Big Ten title with a 89-74 loss to Wis-
consin yesterday in Madison. The
loss dropped the Wolverines to 1-3 MICHIGAN 74
in the conference and 11-4 overall
after being picked as a Big Ten WISCONSIN 89
favorite by the media during the
pre-season.
No. 12 Wisconsin, picked to finish third in the conference,
now sits alone atop the standings at 4-0 with the best start in
school history and made an impression on Michigan coach
Sue Guevara.
"I thought we played a very, very good basketball team
today. We played the best team in the Big Ten," Guevara said.
Although Michigan has put itself in an early hole, Guevara
isn't thinking about winning the conference. Instead, she will
spend this week trying to "find this team defensively" and
challenge the team to practice its defense with increased
intensity.
The game got out of hand after a 29-11 run by the Badgers
to give them a 66-46 lead midway through the second half.
"They couldn't miss a shot and we couldn't hit a shot,"
Guevara said.
The Badgers made five 3-pointers during this stretch en
route to a 52-point outburst in the second half. Wisconsin
finished with 33 points from behind the arc on 11-for-24
shooting. Michigan made just two 3-pointers on six attempts,
both by point guard Alayne Ingram, who finished with just
six points.
Tamara Moore led the Badgers in scoring with 26 points
to go along with seven assists and six rebounds. LeeAnn
Bies was one of the few bright spots for the Wolverines,
recording 27 points and 13 rebounds and her aggressively
taking it to Wisconsin's post players.

Consider yourself lucky.
Chances are you didn't make
the trek down to Orlando to
watch John Navarre humiliate him-
self, the football team and the pro-
gram's reputation for producing good
quarterbacks.
Being forced to watch Navarre sit
in the pocket for what seemed like
hours, helplessly waiting for Marquise
Walker to get open, almost seemed
like the torture Alex

Wisconsin's Kyle Black, right, steals the ball from Stephanie
Gandy, forcing one of Michigan's 20 turnovers yesterday.
The Wolverines jumped to a 7-0 lead to start the game and
led 34-27 after a basket by Bies with under two minutes
remaining in the first half. But the Badgers went into the
lockerroom with the lead after a last-second 3-pointer by
Kyle Black that reminded Guevara of a shot-put, giving Wis-
consin a 37-35 edge and a lot of momentum.
The Wolverines could not overcome their turnover prob-
lems, committing 20 turnovers yesterday - the same as the
team's average over the previous three games. Wisconsin's 12
steals were a big factor but Michigan also had many
unforced turnovers such as throwing the ball away and travel-
ing.
Not even Jennifer Smith's free-throw shooting was reliable
in Madison. Coming into the game Smith was an 87-percent
free-throw shooter, but she went only 5-for-9 from the chari-
ty stripe yesterday.

record Thursday night when it plays Ohio State at 7 p.m.

Huge crowds typical for Purdue

By Bob Hunt

When Michigan traveled to Purdue's
Mackey Arena on Dec. 30th, it knew it
was in for a challenge. As Michigan
struggled from the field, missing many
lay-ups and short jump shots in the
early part of the contest, Purdue
jumped out to a
21-9 lead and BASKETBALL
never looked
back en route to Notebook
a 69-47 victory.
But while the Wolverines had difficulty
from the floor, the real challenge for
the Wolverines was the loud enthusias-
tic crowd of 8,227 that was constantly
on its feet cheering on the Boilermak-
ers.
Although Michigan would declare
the record crowd of 4,558 that showed
up at Crisler on Wednesday night
against Michigan State a success, Pur-
due averages well over 8,000 fans a
game.
Because of their 11 NCAA Tourna-
ment appearances over the last 12
years, the Boilermakers and their fans
have a rich tradition of supporting
women's college hoops.
An hour before game time, a large

line formed outside of the athletic tick-
et office next to Mackey Arena as fans
filled the arena's lower bowl and a
good part of the upper rafters. Right
from the opening tip, the crowd was in
the game giving Michigan an extra
challenge they did not need. And even
though the student pep band for the
women's team was on vacation, an
alumni band entertained the crowd.
"I have always said that we have the
best fans in college basketball," Purdue
senior guard Kelly Komara said.
Although it may provide an extra
challenge, Michigan coach Sue Gue-
vara says that the team does, in fact,
enjoy going to West Lafayette. She says
the way the crowd is really into the
game is a challenge the squad likes.
"We do like coming to play (at Pur-
due)," said Guevara.
GOODLOW GONE FOR SEASON: Since
Michigan downed Notre Dame in
Grand Rapids back in December, it has
been coping without its senior ti-cap-
tain Raina Goodlow. And it is going to
have to continue doing so for awhile
longer.
Right before Michigan started its
conference schedule, it was announced
that Goodlow will miss the remainder

of the season with an infection in her
hip. When Goodlow started to miss.
action, it was believed that she was suf-
fering from back spasms, so her status
remained day-to-day. But after further
inspection, the infection was discov-
ered, sidelining her for the year.
Goodlow will use a medical redshirt
so she will be able to return as a fifth-
'year senior next season. For now
Michigan will continue to start Jen
Smith at power forward.
UP TO NEW HEIGHTS: Before starting
their Big Ten season with three quick
losses, the Wolverines had vaulted to
the No. 12 spot (the highest position
every held by the program) in both the
Associated Press and the Coaches Polls
after a school record 10 straight wins.
While the Wolverines did receive
votes in both polls toward the end of
last season, the only other time the
Wolverines actually appeared in the top
25 was during the last two weeks of the
1999-2000 season.

work Orange."
Seeing Navarre drop back in the
pocket only to: A) Get crunched by
John Henderson and either fumble or
barely hold on to the football, B)
throw an interception, or C) over-
throw his receiver, provided flash-
backs of similar performances he
gave earlier in the season.
The worst part? He's only a sopho-
more.
After the game, running back B.J.
Askew said Navarre would be the
starter again next year - gulp -
because of his experience.
Now most of you are probably
thinking "great, another 8-4 season
that would be fortunate to end in cen-
tral Florida."
I know that's what I was thinking.
That is until Friday afternoon.
But the Lord works in mysterious
ways, and Friday he provided a sign
that the football program is going to
take a stand against pathetic quarter-
backing.
Offensive coordinator Stan Parrish,
it's nothing personal but there's some-
one out there who would do a better
job than you.
Steve Spurrier.
Only Spurrier has the ability to take
crappy quarterbacks and make them
good (see Shane Mathews, Terry
Dean and Danny Wuerffel). If he
could make Wuerffel a Heisman tro-
phy winner, then surely he could
make Navarre competent.
Right?
Now, if you've read this far, you're
undoubtedly wondering why would
Spurrier leave sunny Florida, where

know he could run
even more if he came here.
After all, Calvin Bell could do
more than just run the reverse, he
could also run the double reverse.
While we're in a crazy mood, Carr
should let Spurrier know that he has
the right to bench whomever he wants,
whenever he wants. Navarre's late for
curfew? He's benched. The seniors
disagree with the punishment? They're
benched too.
Carr should let Spurrier know that
if he came to Michigan, terms like
"running up the score" would lose
meaning.
Western Michigan's down 28 with
one minute left in the game? The per-
fect time for Michigan to try its
onside kick. Minnesota's down 20
with seconds left? Let Navarre throw
another touchdown pass.
You might say, "we don't do things
like that at Michigan, or in the North
for that matter." But who's to say what
running up the score really is.
This program could use a new identi-
ty. Enough with the good defense, good
running game and ol' Bo Schembechler
hat attitude. Spurrier could bring his
visor and fun n' gun attitude to Ann
Arbor.
If nothing else, it would probably
help kick start the Michigan-Ten-
nessee rivalry that seems destined to
develop.
After all, Spurrier's 8-3 against
Tennessee. Stan Parrish is 0-1.

The big match is what college wrestling is all about.
It's usually the battles between two ranked wrestlers
that decide the outcome between quality teams. Meets
come down to who can make that last-second takedown,
and who can manage that double-overtime escape.
The No. 3 Michigan wrestling team competed in two
dual meets this weekend that were decided by its mar-
quee match-ups. Michigan came off a one-month break
from competition, but still managed to maintain its.
flawless dual meet record. The Wolverines crushed
Cleveland State on Saturday night. 29-9. and edged No.

escape from Mansueto with a little over a minute left,
Dowd held on for the 3-2 win.
Of the nine points Cleveland State scored, six of them
were from Michigan's forfeit qt 141 pounds. The other
three points were won by Viking heavyweight No. 17
Russ Davie in his defeat of backup Michigan heavy-
weight Aaron Walter. Walter tried to keep the match
close, but Davie was just too strong on top, racking up
five minutes of riding time en route to a 6-0 victory.
Of the 10 matches wrestled Friday night against
Lehigh, half were between wrestlers ranked in the top
20 nationally. At 149 pounds, Michigan's No. 8 Mike
Kulczycki held No. 13 Mike Pirozzola to only three
escanes. winning the match 10-3.
