The Michigan men's basketball team
will be without one of its most excit-
ing players for the majority of its non-
conference season. Junior forward
Brent Petway has been ruled academi-
cally ineligible for the fall semester and
will miss all of the Wolverines' games
before Dec. 22.
"I am very disappointed in myself,
and I take full responsibility for this
situation," Petway said. "I have let
myself, my family, my teammates and
this university down. I am working very
hard to make sure I get back as soon as
I can."
Petway will miss at least nine non-
conference matchups, including home
games against Miami (Fla.) and UCLA
and road contests versus Notre Dame
and Boston University. He will be eli-
gible to return for the last two non-
conference home games (Coppin State
and Chicago State) before Big Ten play
begjs against Indiana on Jan. 3.
Both the Big Ten and the NCAA
require junior athletes to have at least
40 percent of their degree finished,
carry a minimum 1.9 GPA and to have
completed at least 51 credit hours in the
previous two years. It is undisclosed

the correct manner, and so far he has,"
Amaker told the Ann Arbor News for a
story on Saturday. "I've always thought
of every moment as a teaching moment.
Unfortunately, sometimes teaching
moments have to come in some adverse
situations and circumstances."
The Georgia niative - whose 'creative
slam dunks and high-flying style of play
have made him a fan favorite - is com-
ing off a sophomore season where he

That miracle came even with the

Hunwick hat trick leads Icers to sweep

By Daniel Levy
Daily Sports Writer

Leading by two, late in the third period at
home on Saturday against Quinnipiac, No. 8
Michigan appeared to have a strong grip on
the game. The only question that remained
was whether or not defenseman Matt Hunwick
could find the net for the third time that night
to cap off a great individual performance in the
Wolverines' 5-3 win.
After Quinnipiac committed back-to-back
penalties, the Wolverines had a two-man
advantage. Hunwick skated toward the front
of the net and passed to right-winger Chad
Kolarik. Kolarik immediately gave it back to
Hunwick who one-timed the puck past Bobcat
goalie Wes Russel. The beautifully executed
give-and-go gave Hunwick a hat trick and put
the Wolverines up 5-2.
"I can't really remember ever having five points,
or probably even four points," Hunwick said. "I was
lucky enough tonight that I had
a couple of opportunities, and QUINNINAC 1
the last one went in."
Even though Hunwick
stole the show, the real story QuINNIPAC 3

piac (0-2-0) battled Michigan to a 1-1 tie in the
first period, but when Bobcat defenseman Reid
Cashman got called for tripping five minutes
into the second period, the game swung Mich-
igan's way. The penalty turned a Quinnipiac
power-play opportunity into four-on-four play.
The increased room to skate was a situation
that clearly favored the faster Wolverines. Not
wasting any time, Michigan cycled the puck
around to Hunwick at the blue line. The assis-
tant captain squeaked a shot through the legs of
