game plan - even their zone
defense was aggressive and active."
Michigan does not have much
time to correct these problems, as it
will begin its Big Ten season on
Wednesday at home against Wis-
consin. But this winning streak has
instilled confidence in the Wolver-
ines and has them thinking opti-
mistically about upcoming
conference play.
"We are believing in what coach
Amaker is doing and what he is
teaching," said Daniel Horton, who
had a career high nine assists Satur-
day. "It feels like a much different
team. We are now playing with
much more intensity and playing
harder on both ends of the court
while being more unselfish."

Ingerson to

play near home

By Naweed Sikora
Daily Sports Editor
Ever since its 0-6 start, not much has gone
wrong for the Michigan men's basketball team.
With seven consecutive wins, the Wolverines will
now enter the Big Ten season
above .500. But they might be BASKETBALL
missing a key component as
they work to continue this Notebook
turnaround.
Junior Bernard Robinson sat out Saturday's vic-
tory with a strained left knee and might miss
Wednesday's Big Ten opener against Wisconsin.
Robinson, who came out for warm-ups, decided to
sit out because of pain.
"Bernard's knee had given him trouble yester-
day, so we gave him a day of rest in practice with
hopes that he would be ready to play today,"
Michigan coach Tommy Amaker said. "We expect
him to be back in the lineup when we begin the
Big Ten season against Wisconsin. I think you can
see that we missed his ability to handle the ball
and create offensively off the dribble."
Robinson said he hopes to play on Wednesday,
but he doubts, unlike Amaker, that he will be
ready for action.
"It just takes time," Robinson said. "They say it's
not too serious, but I mean, it could be two weeks."
Robinson had played in 69 consecutive games
prior to sitting out Saturday's game.
Senior Gavin Groninger and freshman Sherrod
Harrell were both used against IUPUI to make up
for Robinson's absence, but they did not bring the
same defensive intensity or offensive ability to the
table. In a combined 52 minutes, the two went 2-
for-l1 from the field with 11 points.
If Robinson cannot play Wednesday, the offen-
sive burden will fall on guard Lester Abram. The
freshman has the ability to create his own shot,
and has played sound defense of late. Abram
stepped up against IUPUI with a career-high 20
points, but picked up a few silly fouls and was

Michigan junior Bernard Robinson might be missing some more time due to a strained left knee. Robinson's
defensive intensity, particularly at UCLA, helped Michigan to win seven straight games.

forced to sit during crucial moments of the game.
Robinson had scored in double figures for three
straight games, and, was instrumental in leading
the Wolverines over UCLA at Pauley Pavilion
Dec. 28.
COMING ALIVE: Michigan freshman point guard
Daniel Horton was named Big Ten Player of the
Week Dec. 29 following his dominating perform-
ance against UCLA. Horton nailed seven 3-point-
ers on his way to 24 points - the third time he
has broken the 20-point barrier this season. Earlier
that week, Horton had 13 points, six assists, and a
career-high three steals in Michigan's win over
Eastern Michigan.
Horton has showed no signs of cooling down,
scoring 17 points against both San Francisco and
IUPUI.
WESTWARD BOUND: Sophomore Dommanic
Ingerson announced over the break that he would

be transferring to the University of San Francisco.
Ingerson played in every game last year for the
Wolverines, but injured himself in Michigan's sec-
ond exhibition game and didn't receive any play-
ing time after that this season.
Ingerson told Amaker about his intention to
transfer from Michigan Dec. 3, just before the
Wolverines dropped their fifth game of the season
to Central Michigan.
"We are thrilled to have a talent like Dommanic
come to San Francisco," San Francisco coach
Philip Mathews said.
KING ME: With 23 points Saturday, Michigan
senior LaVell Blanchard moved past Fab Five
member Jimmy King into 12th'place on the all-
time Michigan scoring list with 1,562 career
points. Groninger also caught King, but in another
category. Groninger tied King for fourth on the
all-time 3-pointers attempted list with 347.
