DETROIT - Red Berenson, the image

with hisl1998National MICHIGAN 1
Championship ring as MICH. ST. 4
he answered questions
after the Great Lakes Invitational champi-
onship game Saturday night.
But it seemed like a new kind of tradition
was surfacing from the legendary coach's
carefully planned answers - a losing one.
The 4-1 loss to No. 14 Michigan State at
Joe Louis Arena made it a decade since the
Wolverines last won the Invitational. They
were last crowned GLI Champions in 1996,

the final year of their record nine consecu-
tive GLI Championships.
"We had a pretty good team here,"
Berenson said. "We thought we had some
momentum ... but we just didn't do it."
Prior to this year's tournament, the 42nd
edition of it, Michigan had the most GLI
Championships of any team. But with the
Spartans (7-5-1 CCHA, 11-7-1 overall) tak-
ing home the trophy, the archrivals are now
tied with 11 titles a piece.
Michigan State made it clear it was
bound for the trophy from the minute the
puck hit the ice. The Spartans bolted from
the gates with a handful of big, physical hits
and maintained control in Michigan's zone
with ease.
