Michigan coach Greg Ryan hopes to
take his team tothe Sweet 16 for the
second year in a row.
While the defense makes any
shot attempt almost impossible
to convert on, Michigan has also
created multiple scoring opportu-
nities on offense. Ezurike is dan-
gerous downfield as she tends to
linger in front of the net, waiting
for the perfect cross - as was the
case Saturday.
Meanwhile freshman forward
Madisson Lewis had an explosive
performance on Saturday that
made the first-round win pos-
sible. Lewis' ability to be a key
player reflects the maturation of
the Wolverines' younger players
this season.
"It's having a huge effect for
the team right now," Ryan said.
"When we were struggling, it was
because we weren't getting the
same level of impact form these
players. We needed these guys to
really pick it up for us, and they
have."
A lot of Michigan's success
comes from havingthe right men-
tality. The team has focused on
not looking too far ahead, and the
Wolverines are especially cau-
tious now in a six-game tourna-
ment where elimination can come
at any moment.
"We work on making sure the
kids are focused on the process of
winning," Ryan said. "You're not
going to win because you want to,
but you're going to win because
you perform well."

"Goals have been precious for

It's been an issue getting play-

involved. You could also blame
a load of penalties - 13.10 min-
utes per game - for disrupting
any sort of groove Michigan gets
into during the course of a game.
But perhaps the biggest con-
tributor to the shortage of points
doesn't have to do with the for-
wards at all. In 10 games, zero
defensemen have scored a goal
for the Wolverines (7-2-1).
"We don't want the defense

Five Things We Learned

By SHANNON LYNCH
Daily Sports Writer
1. This team is playing serious
"team" basketball.
In its past three games,
Michigan has seen six differ-
ent players break or tie career
highs for points or rebounds,
including freshman guard Siera
Thompson, who scored 22
points against Pittsburgh, and
junior forward Cyesha Goree,

15 rebounds.
Against Detroit Mercy and
Western Michigan, every Wol-
verine that dressed saw game
action. At home against the
Panthers, four players reached
double-digits, and Michigan
shot better than 50 percent from
the floor for the first time this
season.
"That really shows the
growth of our team," said
Michigan coach Kim Barnes
Arico. "Once we get against
those experienced teams in our
league, those teams that we're
going to play next weekend, we
need everybody clicking on all
cylinders."
2. The Wolverines have a lot of
stamina.
Three games in five days is a
lot, even for a professional team,
so the pressure to succeed was
especially strong for the Wol-
verines during this stretch. But
rather than crumbling under the
pressure of strenuous schedul-
ing, the team showed endurance
on the court. In the Pittsburgh
game, five Michigan players saw
more than 20 minutes on the
court, and four saw more than
30 minutes.
"For those of you that haven't
seen our team in a while since
last year, you will recognize the
difference in their appearance
immediately," Barnes Arico
said at media day. "They've all
really committed to getting
themselves in better shape, and
getting themselves where they
need to be in order for us to be
successful this year."
Their victories are not only
a testament to the commit-
ment the team has made to
workouts in the gym, but also
an indication of the maturity
and focus this young team has.
After struggling to get to the
free-throw line against the
Broncos on Monday, the Wol-
verines posted a season-high 22
attempts from the charity stripe
against Pittsburgh. Barnes
Arico has stressed that making
small changes bring about big
results, and Michigan proved
her right on Wednesday.
3. Working on rebounds really
pays off.
Barnes Arico has stressed
the importance of rebounding
again and again since the start
of the season. And apparently,
her team has caught on. The
team total for rebounds versus
Detroit was 48, and two days
later against Western Michigan
that number rose to 59.

The Wolverines have out-
rebounded all but one team
they've played this season.
Junior guard Nicole Elmblad,
the only starter from last sea-
son, continues to lead the team
in rebounds with 10 per game.
4. Michigan knows how to han-
dle the world's tallest teenager.
Against Pittsburgh on
Wednesday, size was a serious
concern. The Panthers roster
boasts four girls measuring at or
above six feet, but one in partic-
ular stands out. The world's tall-
est teenager, freshman center
Marvadene "Bubbles" Ander-
son, stands at 6-foot-11.
"With their athleticism,
their ability to drive to the bas-
ket and their big kid inside, we
said, 'Let's pack it in the paint,'
" Barnes Arico said. "And then
they go out and take 253s."
While the game plan was
thrown off, Michigan was able
to adjust its defense without
leaving Bubbles open down low.
The Wolverines forced her into
foul trouble in the first half,
and 6-foot-4 senior center Val
Driscoll laid on the pressure,
recording a career-high three
steals.
5. Goree and Elmblad will con-
tinue to make an impact.
Michigan only has three play-
ers returning from last season
who saw playing time, and they
have all stepped up to lead the
team this season. Against West-
ern Michigan, Elmblad recorded
her fourth straight game with
at least 10 rebounds. Two days
later, she got her fourth double-
figure game of the season with
19 points, tying the career high
she set against Xavier.
"She came out in the second
half and just was incredible,"
Barnes Arico said. "She was
really a difference maker, led
our team in rebounding and just
finished plays."
Sophomore guard Madison
Ristovski has found a niche on
the offensive side of things, and
Goree has also shined on the
court. Goree hit the buzzer-
beater to send the Wolverines
into overtime against Arizona
and is averaging 10.5 points and
8.2 rebounds in 27.5 minutes per
game. Both Elmblad and Goree
have recorded two double-dou-
bles this season and are tied for
the Big Ten lead.
