STORRS, Conn. -Withless than
two minutes left in the first half of
Saturday's 69-61 loss at Connecti-
cut, an unlikely player threw off his
warmup jersey and jogged onto the
floor: forward Eric Puls.

forced to throw in michigandaily.
the skinny, 6-foot- cow
10 Puls against the top-ranked
Huskies because the two Michigan
junior forwards, Zack Gibson
and DeShawn Sims, had already
picked up two fouls apiece.
It was the first time Puls
played anything other than gar-
bage minutes all year.
"I was ready to go," Puls said
after the game. "I knew Zack and
Peedi (Sims) had a couple fouls
on them. I thought we might
need me to come off the bench
and put in a few minutes."
Puls is just one of three Mich-
igan players taller than 6-foot-7.
Connecticut has seven.
Puls's assignment was to
box out Connecticut's mam-
moth 7-foot-3 center, Hasheem
Thabeet, prompting his team-
mates to yell, "Get 'em, E."
Puls stood his own and
wasn't pushed around, and even
recorded a block in the game.
And Puls wasn't the only Wol-
verine to play because of foul
trouble. Despite Beilein's insis-
tence that he wants to play just
an eight-manlineup, every player
except sophomore guard Kelvin
Grady saw the floor Saturday.
"One through 14, everyone's
ready," fifth-year senior guard
David Merritt said. "If (Beilein)
calls our namve, we're going. If
he doesn't call our name, we're
cheering on our teammates."
Foul trouble not only forced
Beilein to use his bench, but it
also allowed the Huskies to rack
up easy points from the line.
Connecticut was 19-of-25
from the charity strip while the
Wolverines were just 8-of-12.
"It's tough because they're get-
ting free shots at the basket and no
time is going off," fifth-year senior
guard C.J. Lee said. "Give theta
credit. They were making it tough
on defense. "
Many of Michigan's fouls came
from increased physical toughness
on defense. The Wolverines run a
four-guard system and gave up a lot
of size to the Huskies. Smallerplay-
ers picked up fouls trying to stop
the bigger opponents.
"We weren't going to be out-
toughed," Lee said. "We were prob-
ably going to be out-athleticized
today. We weren't going to be out-
scrapped for rebounds."
The players will need that same
mantrafor tonight's contest against
No. 9 Michigan State.
The Spartans' fast-paced tempo
is similar to Connecticut's, and
they have a roster with seven play-
ers that are 6-foot-8 or taller.
But they will most likely be with-
out their most prolific forward, Ray-

For Wednesday, Feb. It, 2009
(March 21to April 19)
Interruptions at work are almost
inevitable, especially in areas related to
electronics, computer technology, avia-
tion, radio waves and electricity. Staff
shortages could make things even
(April 20 to May 20)
Surprise flirtations might be exciting
today. Parents must be extra vigilant of
their children, because today is an acci-
dent-prone day for the kids.
(May 21 to June 20)
Family members might be rebellious
today. Alternatively, unexpected com-
pany could drop by. Something suddenly
goes sideways at home! Be prepared to
go with the flow.
(June 21 to July 22)
This is an accident-prone day for your
sign. Take extra care when walking, jog-
ging or driving. In the same vein, think
before you speak. Slow down in what-
ever you say or do.
(July 23 to Aug. 22)
Keep track of your money today. You
might find money; you might lose
money. Make friends with your bank
account. Impulse spending is likely.
(Keep your receipts.)
(Aug. 23to Sept. 22)
You feel independent and restless
today. In fact, you might feel rebellious!
Perhaps this is why partners and close
friends are very unpredictable today.
(Sept. 23 to Oct. 22)
You're not sure which way to jump
today. You sense that the winds of
change are in the air. Because of this,
you feel restless, nervous and edgy.
(Oct. 23 to Nov. 21)
A friend might do something com-
pletely unpredictable today.
Alternatively, you might meet someone
new who is rather bizarre or eccentric.
(Not a boring day!)
(Nov. 22to Dec. 21)
Some aspect of your private life might
suddenly be made public today. (You
might be just as surprised as everyone
else.) Be careful. Don't put yourself into
a position where you have to explain
things later. Who needs this? You don't!
(Dec. 22 to Jan. 19)
travel plans might be canceled or
delayed today. Similarly, educational
matters are suddenly unstable or puz-
zling. Things will return to a normal
level very soon.
(Jan. 20 to Feb. 18)
Something about your partner's
income or the income from other sources
that you've been receiving is now unpre-
dictable. You might have to depend more
upon yourself in the immediate future.
(Feb. 19 to March 20)
Be prepared for a few surprisesitoday,
especially when talking to members of
the public, important clients or partners
and friends. Everyone is unpredictable
and rebellious! Sheesh! What gives?
YOU BORN TODAY Many of you
have a flair for improving the lives of
those around you. You know how to ben-
efit others. In part, this is because you
like things to be comfortable and work
efficiently. You enjoy the pleasures of
life, and love to explore things to the
maximum. Relationships are favored
this year; it's a fun, social year!
