Redless Blue takes
on Golden Flashes
Cagers look to end *
by Matt Rennie
It may seem that Michigan
hockey coach Red Berenson's
one-game suspension will place
his assistant Mel Pearson in a dif-
ficult position. But at least he
won't be all alone on the bench.
Almost, but not quite.
It will indeed be a lonely
bench tonight when the Wolver-
ines take on Kent State at Yost
Arena. Berenson and six Wolver-'
ines will be serving one-game
suspensions, which are the result
of each individual's role in last
Saturday's brouhaha with Michi-
Pearson will only have 17
players at his disposal for the
game, including 10 forwards, five
defenders, and two goalies.
Seldom-used Mike Semack will
dress for the Wolverines as a
backup to starter Chris Gordon.
Rookie Steve Shields, who
usually starts between the pipes
for Michigan, is one of the six
Berenson said the hockey of-
fice was contacted by several ath-
letic entrepreneurs, who offered to
serve as Gordon's understudy in
return for the opportunity to don
the Maize and Blue.
While Berenson turned away
all the wanna-be Wolverines, the
Wolverine coach also had the op-
tion of asking Tim Keough for his
services. Keough quit the team
earlier this season to concentrate
on his studies. However, Berenson
hoped no action would be neces-

Berenson hopes to have all his
players, with the exception of
rookie forward David Oliver
(broken leg), back at his disposal
when the Wolverines open the
CCHA playoffs a week from to-
day. Michigan will have home-ice
advantage against either Ohio
State or Illinois-Chicago.
"We can't worry about who
we're playing," Berenson said.
"We have to play the same game
against anybody.- "

Even though the NCAA tour-
nament is out of the picture for the
women's basketball team, it isn't
about to give in.
Over the next two weekends,
the Wolverines (3-10 in the Big
Ten) play four conference games,
and they hope to benefit from the
lack of pressure of a must-win sit-
uation looming over their heads.
"Thankfully, the players have
solid goals. They're thinking in
terms of winning games and
haven't resigned to just letting the
season finish out," coach Bud
VanDeWege said. "They want to
accomplish something before the
With the momentum the team
built last weekend by defeating
Illinois and giving nationally-
ranked Purdue a difficult forty
minutes, the Wolverines are far
from giving up.
"Our confidence is actually in
as good of shape as it has been in
a long time," VanDeWege said.
Unfortunately for Michigan,
their next two games are on the
road. Maybe even more unfortu-
nate is that tonight's opponent, In
diana, is still in contention for an
NCAA bid. The Hoosiers don't
want the Wolverines to come be-
tween them and the tournament.
The less difficult end of the
weekend series will be against
Ohio State on Sunday. Earlier this
season, Michigan gave the Buck-
eyes a battle at Crisler, but after
captain Carol Szczechowski
fouled out in regulation, the
Wolverines fell in overtime.
Although next week's games
are both at home, the Wolverines
have the misfortune of playing the
hottest team in the conference. Af-
ter a rocky conference start, the
young Iowa Hawkeyes are coming
"I would have said after we
played them down there, 'Yes, we
have a chance to beat them nextl
time,' but right now it depends on
how we come out of this week-
end," VanDeWege said.

However, their trip to the

and relaxation, as the Wolverines

three top-ranked opponents in UC-

with the expectation of winning,"
The Wolverines are led by
David Kass (14-5 overall, ranked
ninth in the nation), Dan Brakus
(14-6), and John Karzen (12-4).
The Brakus/Kass team leads the
doubles lineup with a 6-3 record.
The competition begins Febru-
ary 26, when Michigan will square
off against UC-Irvine, which is
ranked No. 25 in the country.

The next stop for the Michigan
squad is Los Angeles, where it will
face UCLA on February 28. The
Bruins are currently ranked second
in the nation with a 10-0 record.
"Of the three teams, UCLA is
the strongest," Eisner said. "They
are very established, and they
have a lot of players that are back
from last year."

Nathan (7-0) lead the squad in vic-
tories, and the Wave's top three
doubles teams are all undefeated.
"We're going to have to get
good performances throughout the
lineup (for all three meets)," Eis-
ner said. "All those teams have
different strengths and weaknesses,
and the team that can win the
close matches is the team that is
going to win."

"Michigan's pressure made us turn
the ball over."
A Demetrius Calip steal led to
a Tony Tolbert lay-up which
helped spark Michigan to a 16-3
run. The Wolverines established
their first substantial lead of the
game and took 37-30 advantage
into the intermission.
"I thought our defense in the
first half was the difference. They
only had 19 shots with 12
turnovers," Michigan coach Steve
Fisher said. "Some quickness with
our perimeter people ... got us
some steals and easy baskets."
After expanding their halftime
advantage into double figures, the
Wolverines allowed Wisconsin
back into the game. The Badgers'
strong inside game came to life,
There were alley-oops, wild
crowds, buzzer-beating shots, and
celebrities in the stands. No, it
wasn't the Final Four; it was the

matched any past college duels in
excitement and intensity.

while their defense stiffened and
Michigan's shots stopped falling.
Michigan went five minutes
without a basket, while Wisconsin
maneuvered the ball inside almost
at will. A Tompkins lay-up con-
cluded a 10-0 Badger run, pulling
them within one, 44-43.
"In the second half, I thought
they spread the floor a little bit,
pushed it inside, and we weren't
nearly as good defensively until
the last five minutes," Fisher said.
After sloppy play by both
teams, the Badgers took the lead
on an Ellenson jumper. And follow-
ing a Larry Hisle lay-up, their ad-
vantage reached four, 59-55. Yet,
Wisconsin couldn't pull away.

lead, we'd come back and turn it
over, or somebody would do some-
thing uncharacteristic of that per-
