Guevara pleased with Wolverines' depth at forward
By Daniel Bremmer
Daily Sports Writer
Before Saturday's exhibition against the Domini-
can Republic National Team,
Michigan women's basketball BASKETBALL
coach Sue Guevara was reluc-
tant to speculate on what her
starting lineup would be when
the Wolverines tip off the regular season.
Against the Dominican Republic, Guevara sent
out senior LeeAnn Bies at center, junior Jennifer
Smith and sophomore Tabitha Pool at the forward
spots and freshmen Niki Reams and Mie Burlin in
Starting two freshmen allowed Guevara to take
advantage of a deep, veteran bench that included
fifth-year senior Raina Goodlow and junior
While Guevara still has not officially named her
starters for Friday's opener against Creighton, she
did indicate that she liked what she saw in some of
her combinations during the exhibition.
"I like that starting group that we had," Guevara
said. "When I can bring in a Raina Goodlow, when
I can bring in a Lauren Andrews, I can bring in a
Stephanie Gandy coming off the bench, I think that
was a nice lineup."
Goodlow scored eight points and grabbed five
boards in just 13 minutes of action. Gandy and
Andrews totaled 21 and 18 minutes, respectively,
and combined for eight points.
Guevara was also pleased with the defensive
intensity of sophomore Sierra Hauser-Price, who
contributed a pair of buckets, a block and a steal in
six minutes off the bench.
"I told (Sierra) when we were walking off
the court, 'Listen, if you play like that in prac-
tice every day, I'm giving you more time,' "
But before you pencil in your scorecard, Guevara
pointed out that she might still change her lineup
"I can still play with some things," she said. "But
I liked that lineup right away."
SIGN HERE: Two recruits committed to play for
Michigan next season during last week's National
Letter of Intent early signing period.
Leslie Crowley, 6-foot-2 forward from Low-
ell, and Kelly Helvey, a 5-foot-11 guard/for-
ward from Toledo signed on the dotted line for
Crowley - who lost part of her junior sea-
son and all of senior season due to injury -
was named to the Michigan Class A all-state
first team as a sophomore.
"Crowley has a good all-around game and is
comfortable playing inside or out," said Gue-
vara. "She is also an excellent passer for a 6-
Entering her senior season, Helvey is coming off
a junior campaign in which she averaged 13 points,
five rebounds and three assists per game, earning
her a nomination to play in the 2003 McDonald's
"She has excellent athleticism, which allows her
to get to the hole," Guevara said. "She can flat out
shoot the basketball. She is a scorer."

Burns said. "We have to prepare so
364 days from now we don't feel
At this point next year, Michigan
will have finished its first season
with a full complement of scholar-
ship players. While Burns was
pleased that his team was in posi-
tion to make the tournament after
an 0-3 start to the Big Ten season,
he still sees brighter skies ahead.
The Wolverines have shown
steady improvement in each of
Burns' first three seasons at the
helm. After a 6-10-0 record two
years ago in its inaugural cam-
paign, Michigan improved to 10-7-
1 last year.
