Blue's Gandy ices victory at the line

By Megan Kolodgy
Daily Sports Writer
The Michigan women's basketball
team spent last night's matchup with
Cincinnati in a battle of wills. But after
three ties and eight lead changes, the
Wolverines edged out the Bearcats, 73-
69, but not without a little help from
their new coach.
With her team down by as many as
seven points in the second half, first-
year Michigan coach Cheryl Burnett
invoked the much referred to "sixth
man," bringing the Crisler Arena
crowd to life by raising her arms in
the air and stomping her feet.
Her Wolverines finally caught up
with the Bearcats when sophomore
Rachael Carney nailed one of her
three 3-pointers, tying the game at 51

with 12:57 remaining. Michigan's
work to penetrate Cincinnati's zone
defense paid off, as it shot a remark-
able 60 percent from the field.
After losing the opening jump ball,
junior Tabitha Pool initiated the scor-
ing with a smooth jumpshot from the
edge of the key. Cincinnati responded
with a basket of its own, but Michigan
junior Sierra Hauser-Price put her
team back out in front, where it
remained for a much of the half.
Michigan had four fouls in the first
3:15. Burnett pulled senior co-captain
and leading scorer Jennifer Smith
after she committed two fouls in four
minutes.
Senior co-captain Stephanie Gandy
made up for Smith's absence, scoring
six of the Wolverines' 12 points.
Michigan spent the next several min-

utes with a comfortable six-point lead.
"When our players got in some
foul trouble in the first half, and we
had players on the floor who didn't
have as much experience, I think that
was the key to the ballgame," Burnett
said. "Those contributions from those
kids off the bench to maintain and
give us the lead ... helped us play a
very intelligent basketball game."
Then, Cincinnati's shooting spree
began. The Bearcats scored nine
unanswered points and took the lead
for the first time, 33-32.
Propelled by Gandy's on-target
shooting, the Wolverines went score-
for-score with the Bearcats for the rest
of the half and trailed Cincinnati by a
score of 37-36.
Returning from the lockerroom rar-
ing to go, the Wolverines took the

court ready to redeem themselves after
an inconsistent first half This proved
to be no easy task. The second half
was almost a mirror image of the first,
with Michigan trying desperately to
catch up to the Bearcats, who held a
similarly comfortable six-point lead at
59-53 halfway through the second
half.
Michigan took the lead on a Gandy
three with 7:08 left, which put it
ahead 60-59.
Fittingly, it was Gandy who sealed
the deal for Michigan. With seven
seconds remaining, she went to the
line and sank two free throws to
clinch the victory for the Wolverines.
"No sweat," said Gandy, who fin-
ished the night with 23 points.
"We're under pressure situations like
that all the time in practice."
