Iowa stuns Michigan
in Big Ten Tournament
Freshman goalie Zach Nagelvoort and sophomore Steve Racine could split time in net for the Michigan hockey team.
With two options at goalie,
Berenson has a oo problem
By JEREMY SUMMITT
Daily Sports Editor
The last time Michigan coach
Red Berenson had two goalten-
ders share the starting job doesn't
seem so long ago. Leading up to
the Big Chill at the Big House in
December 2010, Bryan Hogan and
Shawn Hunwick split time for the
majority of the fall schedule.
During warm-ups, Hogan
tweaked his groin, less than an
hour before he was expected to
start. Hunwick got the opportuni-
ty to come in and contribute, and
his 5-0 shutout victory over Mich-
igan State was enough to make
him the starter until he graduated
the following year.
Fast-forward three years, and
djavu kicks in for Berenson.
Freshman goaltender Zach
Nagelvoort stepped in for the
injured Steve Racine on Oct. 18 at
New Hampshire and has made his
case for the starting job ever since.
"We might end up being a two-
goalie team, and we might not,"
Berenson said. "If they both play
as well as they have played, then
they'll both play."
Boasting the nation's sec-
ond-best goals-against average
(1.47) and save percentage (.948),
Nagelvoort was awarded Big Ten
Second Star of the Week for his
performance in a sweep of Michi-
gan Tech. It marked the second
consecutive week -with such rec-
ognition after earning Third Star
honors on Oct. 29.
Berenson has been pleasantly
surprised with Nagelvoort's per-
formance thus far. He knew he
recruited a good goaltender, but
there was some uncertainty after
Racine was sidelined with the
groin injury nearly a month ago.
"I didn't know what to expect,"
Berenson said. "He didn't come in
with the momentum because he
had been on two or three different
teams last year."
Nagelvoort bounced around
between several North Ameri-
can Hockey League teams before
coming to Michigan, and he's been
forced to work his way to the top
for a while now.
"I never got to play in the top
leagues," Nagelvoort said. "Pretty
much my whole career has been,
not so much playing from behind,
but being the underdog. Com-
ing into a big program, that's the
opposite. I'm still kind of pushing
from behind, and I have to make a
name for myself."
Since entering the crease at
New Hampshire, Nagelvoort has
become more consistent and more
confident in his abilities as the
Michigan backstop. He's won four
of his first five starts, and all those
games were decided by one goal.
While many goaltenders have
the tendency to stay loose in prac-
tice but tense up when the game
comes around, Nagelvoort rarely
falls into that category. His team-
mates have mentioned that he
always tries to make practice fun
by throwing pucks back at them
to make sure everyone knows the
puck didn't hit the back of the net.
He's a talker, loves to play the puck
and can be heard from the fifth
floor of Yost Ice Arena, dishing out
advice for his defensemen.
"There's two ways you can look
at it," Nagelvoort said. "You can go
at it and be nervous and that kind
of thing, or you can just go out and
have fun, and that's what I try to
Berenson and the rest of the
coaching staff have taken note,
"He's not only added confidence
in his own mind, but he's added
confidence from his teammates
and his coaches," Berenson said.
"I think that makes the game bet-
ter for everyone. When you're not
worried about your goalie, you're
just playing your game."
Having two goaltenders capa-
ble of leading the No. 2 team in the
country is hardly a controversy,
dilemma or any other word with
a negative connotation. If history
repeats itself, the Wolverines are
in good shape. Last time Michigan
featured two starting goaltenders,
it played in the national champi-

The Michigan women's soccer
team made plans to be in Cham-
paign all week for the Big Ten
Tournament, along with fellow
Big Ten powers Penn State and
had other IOWA 1
plans and MICHIGAN 0
No. 7 seed Iowa (S-S-u Big
Ten, 14-5-1 overall) scored mid-
way through the second half and
shocked No. 2 seed Michigan
(9-1-1, 15-3-1), 1-0, in the quarter-
Hawkeye forward Bri Toelle
scored off her own rebound in
the 62nd minute. Michigan coach
Greg Ryan thought he saw a
handball on the rebound, but the
referee let play proceed. Toelle's
rebound was the fourth Iowa shot
in a 10-minute span.
After that, the Hawkeyes
pulled back their defense and
held on, avenging a 2-1 Michigan
win Sept. 21. The seventh-ranked
Wolverines started generating
more chances in the second half,
but by that time, they were play-
ing into the wind. They ended
up with only three of 16 shots on
"This is a game of chances,"
Ryan said. "I remember them
having one good chance the
entire day, but that's the one
that counts. Today, we didn't put
our chances away. We had good
chances, but we passed up on tak-
ing those chances."
While Ryan was pleased with
his team's chances in the sec-
ond half, he still didn't have an
answer for why Michigan started
Ryan estimated Michigan had
possession for 70 percent of the
first half but couldn't manage a
shot on goal.
"Every single player and
(member of our) staff is disap-
pointed," said senior defender
Shelina Zadorsky. "It's hard to
say, but we underachieved in this
tournament. We're absolutely
disappointed, but we're going to
have to move on.... But it is hard,
especially for the seniors who
wanted a Big Ten championship."
Freshman forward Madisson
Lewis had an open shot from
12 yards out in the first half but
missed wide. She later tried
crossing it to open sophomore
midfielder Christina Ordonez in
the box but couldn't connect.
Ryan refused to attribute Lew-
is's mistakes to her youth.
"I don't think so - everybody
misses chances," Ryan said.
"Madi has matured so much over
the year, I don't consider her a
freshman player anymore."
In the second half, senior mid-
fielder Tori McCombs slipped
behind the defense but couldn't
pull the trigger on a shot in time.
The Wolverines later had two
shots deflected off the wall of the
defense on set pieces.
Because of the threat of
inclement weather, host Illinois
moved the game from the home
grass stadium to two recreation
turf fields. Penn State beat Wis-
consin to punch its ticket to the
semifinals on the field next to the
Now, Michigan is stuck head-
ing home Wednesday night. It
also likely lost two NCAA Tour-
nament home games and squan-
dered chances for rematches with
Penn State and regular-season
But Ryan downplayed the dis-
"Believe me, we never look
forward to a rematch with Penn
State," Ryan said. "We like play-
ing each other because it's a chal-
lenge, but it's a hard game for both
teams. Once a year is enough."
As for the potential title game
against Nebraska, to prove Mich-
igan is better than the regular-
"But we are better than
Nebraska," Ryan said. "We beat
them on their home field.
"This wasn't our last game.

His team will have nine days
off before its next game, the lon-
gest break since the preseason. It
also emerged healthy, while Penn
State and Nebraska could have @
two more games this weekend.
Zadorsky, however, didn'thave
such an easy time moving on.
"I think that's a smart coach
to think like that," she said. "It's
hard for the players to think like
that yet because it's so fresh. We
weren't ready to be done here."

For the second
month in a row,
Illini come back
By WILL HANSELMAN
For the Daily
The Wolverines haven't quite
figured out how to close out that
pesky team from Champaign.
After striding out to a two-set lead
in the match, winning the first
and second frames by comfortable
margins of seven and eight points,
respectively, the Wolverines let
the Illini fight back and win for
the second MICHIGAN 2
time this ILLINOIS 3
defeat might hurt a little more
than the 3-2 loss at Cliff Keen
Arena on Oct. 5 when the Wolver-
ines relinquished a 2-1 lead.
Michigan (5-8 Big Ten, 15-9
overall) came out of the gates
strongly at Huff Hall in Cham-
paign, with senior middle blocker
Jennifer Cross leading the way.
Through the first two sets, she
had eight kills with no errors and
a .667 hit percentage, helping the
Wolverines cruise through the
first part of the match. She fin-
ished with 14 kills, but the Illini
took over from there.
While Cross had a strong start
for Michigan, the most important
player on the court was senior
outside hitter Lexi Erwin, an All-
American hopeful, who finished
with 20 kills and two aces.
Illinois (7-6, 11-12) must have
had a serious talking-to at the
break before the third set, as it
was penalized for coming out of
its locker room late and started off
the third set down, 1-0. However,
whatever Illinois coach Kevin
Hambley said must have gotten
through to his players, as Illinois
raced out to win six of the first
seven points of the third game.
The Illini wouldn't look back.
A key piece in the momentum
shift was Liz McMahon. McMa-
hon, a childhood teammate and
friend of Michigan setter Lexi
Dannemiller, finished with 15 kills
for the Illini and just as impor-
tantly, got Illinois back into the
matchin the third game.
Illinois looked like an entirely
different team after the break,
winning the next three sets by
no less than four points in each.
McMahon, Morganne Criswell
and Jocelyn Birks combined for 56
kills to lead the Illini to victory.
Michigan finished the match
disappointingly with an abysmal
.049 and .136 hit percentage in the
fourth and fifth games, respec-
Illinois fans, labeled the Spike
Squad and known as the best stu-
dent section in the country, helped
boost their home team. Cheering
loudly for the entirety of the game
while clad in orange, the crowd
made communication and serving
extremely difficult for the Wol-
verines. They also stomped and
celebrated whenever Illinois gave
them something to cheer for.
"(Illinois) changed, and that
happens in a match," said Michi-
gan coach Mark Rosen. "What I'm
disappointed in is that we didn't
"We didn't find a way to raise
our level and I think we got deflat-
ed. You can't get deflated in this
