A recently slumbering Wolverine
women's basketball team awakened
Sunday and an unfortunate
Wisconsin squad was the victim as
Michigan drove the Badgers from
Crisler, 90-69.
For the second straight game
Michigan coach Bud VanDeWege
started center Michelle Hall in place
of Nikki Beaudry. The switch paid
dividends, as the first-year redshirt
registered nine points and collected
nine rebounds.
The insertion of Hall also spread
thin a Wisconsin defense intent on
collapsing on streaking forward
Trish Andrew, who was able to tally
a team-high 16 points on eight-for-
nine shooting.
.°"Trish and Michelle in (the game)
together was a real advantage for us,"
VanDeWege said. "Michelle takes
the pressure off Trish."
I Michigan (8-5 overall, 1-2 Big
Ten) ran to an early 22-12 lead due
in part to the spirited play of reserve
point-guard Stacie McCall, who
finished the game with 14 points.
"I just went out there and used
t+ y assets and had fun," McCall said.
But Wisconsin (7-6, 2-2) clawed
back with seven straight points and
headed into halftime down, 33-32.
Michigan inmediately took con-
tiol early in the second period behind
the shooting of Leah Wooldridge.
The point-guard sank two three-
pointers along with two other field
goals as she amassed 10 points in a
little over three minutes.

KENNE I H MULLEI/
Purdue guard Jimmy Oliver drives around Michigan's Kirk Taylor in the Boilermakers' 86-69 victory Saturday.

Daily Basketball Writer
WEST LAFAYETTE - Mackey
Arena seemed like a coffee shop
Saturday night during Michigan's
86-69 loss to Purdue. There was a
whole lotta dunkin' going on, and
the ranking cop was Jimmy Oliver.
The Michigan defense was one
big donut, allowing holes for
Boilermaker baskets all night long.
Oliver twisted Wolverine defenders
and wrung them for 35 points, in-
cluding three of Purdue's 12 dunks
in the game.
"It just happened to be one of
those games where they weren't get-
ting back, and we got some transi-
tion dunks," Boilermaker coach
Gene Keady said. "It's also a sign of
a young team. Once they learn
they've got to get back on defense,
they'll be a lot better in this league."
Michigan's offense suffered as
well. The Wolverines (7-7 overall,
0-4 Big Ten) could not sink a basket
with a torpedo, shooting 36.7 percent
from the field. In fact, the team shot
better from the three-point line (40
percent) than overall.
Michigan guard Demetrius Calip
provided the team's lone double-
figure scoring performance, amass-
ing a Big Ten career-high 26 points.
"I think we played pretty good
defense and just kept them on their
heels all night," Oliver said.
Purdue forward Chuckie White,
who notched seven of Purdue's
dunks and finished the game with 16
points, disagreed.
"It just seemed like they were go-
ing through the motions," he said. "I
don't want to get down on them, but
it didn't seem like they were playing
that hard."
Michigan coach Steve Fisher ac-
knowledged his squad's lax play as
well.
"We were sluggish and we were
everything you don't want to be
when you come in and you play a
team on their home court," he said.
"We didn't have what we carried

total and much fewer than totaBl'
from its previous outings, 11 re-

Purdue did not press for most of the,
game, and implemented a zone
defense.
Fisher employed several deferrt;
sive schemes, but none successfullye'
thwarted Oliver & Co. He turned t99
junior walk-on Freddie Hunter just.i
4:08 into the first half, but Hunter
could not stop Oliver, either. ;
"Man-to-man there was a mid4
match, and he shot right over the
zone," forward Sam Mitchell said of-
Oliver. "I think we could have stog.
ped him. It was just a lack of conre
centration on the whole team's part~:
Michigan hosts fellow Big Tel @0
basement-dweller Northwestern,

"We're going to have to go back
and say we're not playing North-#
western to see who gets out of tenth"
place, but for the national champ-,
ionship - play with that type of"
vigor and emotion," Fisher said'
"We didn't have it tonight."

Gotta Love It
WEST LAFAYETTE - Sam Mitchell stood at
halfcourt, left behind on yet another Boilermaker
breakaway. As Purdue's Jimmy Oliver slammed one of
his monster dunks, Mitchell could only walk back
toward his own basket and get into offensive position.
While beginning his trot, Mitchell lowered his head
and mumbled something that rhymes with "bit," which
is basically what the Wolverines did Saturday.
Nobody expected Michigan to win the national
championship or even the Big Ten this year. Nobody
expected it to blow away opponents. Fans understand
that talent-wise, Michigan is not a top-20 team.
But fans do expect a team that utilizes all of its tal-
ent. Saturday night, that was not true. The Wolverines
played a brand of basketball that lacked effort.
Purdue capitalized and blew away Michigan. Even
the Boilermaker fans lost interest with the Wolverines,
chanting "Beat IU" in honor of Purdue's Monday game
with arch-rival Indiana. But hey, Michigan lost interest.
It's only natural the Purdue faithful should follow suit.
"Tonight we didn't have what we carried into every
game and that was effort," Michigan coach Steve Fisher
said. "We got a whipping from beginning to end."
The Wolverine defense employed two styles: the
matador and the maitre d'. The former features a

Flat ''plays
efense (no
Michigan player standing firm, then moving out of the
way and watching the Purdue player go by (Shouting
"Ol!" is not necessary, although that much effort by a
Wolverine may have caused a coronary). The latter de-
fensive style occurs as a Wolverine defender ushers a
penetrating player to the basket, always with arms out-
stretched but a step behind.
And those occurred only when Michigan players
were in position to make defensive plays. As often as
not, Wolverines were out of place.
"It was not only lack of defense down low, but lack
of defense all over. I could have scored on some of
(Purdue's) open shots," said Fisher, who scored 56
points during his entire career at Illinois State.
"It's one thing to be 6-0 and win the national cham-
pionship," Fisher said. "It's another to be 0-4 and star-
ing down the muzzle of the Big Ten."
Fortunately for the Wolverines, they play
Northwestern next. That's a break which should enable
Michigan to avoid matching its 0-6 start in 1981-82.
"If we go in Thursday, pull off a win against
Northwestern, maybe that'll inspire us some,"
Michigan guard Kirk Taylor said.
Too bad it's going to take the also-winless Wildcats
to inspire Michigan.
