Blue looks to rebound against Huskers

Daily Sports Editor
Coming off one of its worst
losses of the season - a 10-point
loss to hated rival Michigan
State, no less - the Michigan
basketball team would prefer to

dencies, play-
ing against a
familiar opponent that you know
inside and out.
Unfortunately for the 22nd-
ranked Wolverines, they've got to
play the Big Ten's newest mem-
ber, Nebraska (3-8 Big Ten, 11-11
overall) on Wednesday night -
and they're going in blind.
"I have no history with
(Nebraska coach) Doc Sadler or
their players," Beilein said. "I've
never even seen one of their play-
ers in AAU or anything. ... You
just got to do what you can do.
While there's not comfort in that,
there's also no comfort in know-
ingthem too well.
"Our kids got to study them
more than they normally would
because they've never played
against Nebraska."
That's not good news for play-
ers such as guard Tim Hardaway
Jr. The sophomore guard in par-
ticular could use a mental break,
as he's coming off his worst per-
formance of the season.
Hardaway Jr. went just 1-for-
10 from the floor on Sunday

Michigan sophomore guard Tim Hardaway Jr. has struggled mightily in Big Ten play this season, shooting 1-for-10 during Sunday's game against Michigan State.

Exactly a month after earning
MVP honors at the Sugar Bowl
in New Orleans on Jan. 3, former
Michigan wide receiver Junior
Hemingway had it alltaken away.
Friday, Hemingway had
numerous valuables stolen from
the home of his father, Kenneth
EarlHemingway, indConway, S.C.,
according to myrtlebeachonline.
The following things were
taken from the home, according
to the report:
' Gator Bowl watch valued at
" Sugar Bowl watch valued at
" East/West Shrine Game
watchvalued at $1,000
" Silver watch valued at $1,200
" Gold watch valued at $500
e Outback Bowl ring valued at
" Gold diamond ring valued at
* Gold initial ring with a K on it
valued at $500
" Two video gaming systems
and controllersvalued at $759
" Eleven video games valued at
* A55-inch TV valued at $1,200
The report stated that crime
scene officers took fingerprints
for processing and photos were
taken of the home, which was
"left in disarray."
Hemingway finished his
fifth-year senior season with the
Michigan football team with 34
catches for 699 yards and four
He was invited to compete
in the NFL combine later this
month in Indianapolis.

against the Spartans, and his
four points were a season-low.
But that performance wasn't
entirely unexpected - all season,
especially in Big Ten games, the
Miami native hasn't looked like
the sharpshooter he became dur-
ing conference play last year.
His struggles on Sunday mean
Hardaway Jr. is now 10-for-36
in his last three games and he is
shooting just 21.3 percent from
deep in conference games.
Worse yet, the sophomore has
let his offensive struggles affect
the rest his game, slacking on the
boards and regressing defensive-
ly. Hardaway Jr. has taken ques-
tionable shots, and Beilein said
the guard needs to let the game
come to him instead of forcing
things. But that's difficult when
someone puts as much pressure
on himself as Hardaway Jr. does.
"He really wants to be the ulti-
mate perfect player, and no one
is," Beilein said. "We just con-
tinue to work at that - that it's

not about perfection, it's about
excellence, of getting better, of
growth. And like I said, he's very
receptive to those things. We've
just got to continue to work at it."
Though Michigan (7-4,17-7) is
unfamiliar with the Cornhusk-
ers, Nebraska is far from a bas-
ketball version of the Mona Lisa.
Nebraska hasn't impressed the
conference much in its inaugural
season in the Big Ten, currently
sitting in 11th place in the league
The Cornhuskers are led by
one of the more solid scoring
threats in the Big Ten in guard Bo
Spencer, who averages 15.5 points
per game. Spencer is surrounded
by a veteran-laden lineup - three
of the team's other starters are
fellow seniors and the fourth is a
But other than a home win
against Indiana, Nebraska hasn't
beaten anyone of note in the con-
ference and lostits last two games
to Northwestern and Minnesota.

The biggest challenge for the
Wolverines may be adapting to
the Cornhuskers' offense, which
is more wide-open and relies less
on set plays than most of Michi-
gan's foes.
"It'llbe one of those personnel-
driven games," said senior guard
Stu Douglass. "There's some sets
they run, but alot of (the offense)
is transition. They have some
1-on-1 scorers, and they got great
options on the perimeter that can
make plays. It'll take our whole
"It's different going from play-
ingsets to playing individual play-
ers. It takes a different mindset."
The good news for the Wol-
verines is that they've completed
their toughest six-game stretch of
the season, bookended by Michi-
gan State. The team went 3-3 in
that span, and though that's a
solid mark against such difficult
competition, Douglass admitted
that such inconsistency has been

With a relatively easier sched-
ule the rest of way, Michigan has
an opportunity to make some
headway in the conference -- and
it begins in Lincoln on Wednes-
"We're in a better position
than we were last year," Douglass
said. "Last year, we needed the
string of wins. You don't neces-
sarily need them (now), but we
do need to build momentum as

The accolades keep rolling in
for junior guard Jenny Ryan.
Just a year after beingnamed
to the Academic All-Big Ten,
and Michigan's Athletic Aca-
demic Achievement Award and
Academic Excellence Award
rosters, Ryan was named to the
Capital One Academic All-Dis-
trict first team last week.
Ryan was named to District
Five's first team which includes
two other Big Ten players -
Purdue's Brittany Rayburn and
Northwestern's Kendall Hack-
There are eight districts from
the United States and Canada.
Later this month, the College

finalists, will release its Capital
One All-American first, second
and third teams.
According to CoSIDA's web-
site, in order to be eligible for
Academic All-America, "a stu-
dent-athlete must be a starter
or important reserve with at
least a 3.30 cumulative grade-
point average (on a 4.0 scale) at
his/her current institution.
"Nominated athletes must
have participated in at least 50
percent of the team's games ...
have completed one full cal-
endar year at his/her current
institution, and have reached
sophomore athletic eligibility."
Ryan is a junior communica-
tions major with a 3.81 cumu-
lative GPA, according to the
Academic All-District list.
Ryan has been named a start-
er in all 23 games this season
while leading the Wolverines in
three-point field goal percent-
age (.377), rebounds per game

naw, Mich. native also leads the

fifth in assists.
