Super subs are key to
success for 'Icagers
by Matthew Dodge
Daily Basketball Writer
Behind every good Wolverine starter, there is a great sub.
Michigan's five principle backups proved that yesterday as Michigan's
women's basketball team stomped Wisconsin, 90-69, at Crisler Arena. The
visitors held Michigan's leading-scorer, captain Carol Szczechowski, to only
nine points - her lowest total in seven games. But the Wolverine bench.
proceeded to pick up the pace and gun the offensive engines all game.
"Stopping (Szczechowski) was a key for us," Badger coach Mary Murphy
said. "But the subs played such that she didn't need to score. They never-
missed a beat when they went to the bench."
One Wolverine kept the beat pumping when some of her teammates were
playing as if they were listening to an Anita Baker song. Sophomore point
guard Stacie McCall came off the pine to score a career-high 14 points in
only 19 minutes.
McCall and starting point guard Leah Wooldridge form one of the most
versatile guard tandems in the conference. The styles of the two form a starkd
contrast. McCall plays a full-throttle, catch-me-if-you-can brand of basket-
ball. Wooldridge prefers to slow the pace.
"They are very different players," Murphy said. "Leah is more of an out-
side threat; we know she is a good shooter from the point. McCall likes to
drive to shoot the ball."
"Stacie's play was great today," Michigan coach VanDeWege said. "Leah-
did not have a good first half. Stacie just came in and lit the place up. She
brought energy, movement, and scoring. She set a great tone, and was ready,.
to pick other people up."
VanDeWege took some of the scoring load off Szczechowski by insert-
ing shooting guard Jennifer Nuanes (11 points). This allowed Szczechowski
to move to small forward and help front line subs LaTara Jones and Nikki
Beaudry clean the boards.
VanDeWege made a big move Friday by placing the 6-3 Michelle Hall in"
the starting lineup over the 5-11 Beaudry. This gives Michigan its own ver-
sion of the Twin Towers - starting forward Trish Andrew is 6-2 - while
giving the high-scoring Beaudry a chance to size up the opponent's defense. ;11
"I have no problems with coming off the bench," Beaudry said. "I can see
what Michelle and Trish are doing, and see what I need to do. It helps to
watch; I can focus in on the game."
If the Michigan backups continue to play well, the team may soon shake
up the Big Ten standings. A better team chemistry is needed before the
Wolverines can compete with perennial conference leaders, but VanDeWege
just may have found the perfect mix.
"It's too early in the season to tell," VanDeWege said. "I don't have
trouble using a lot of players, but they have to come ready to play. We need
to get into a consistent rotation. Hopefully, this is the beginning of it."

Fencers finish fourth
by Ryan Herrington
Deily Sports Writer
During the ride home from
Columbus Saturday afternoon, the
Michigan fencing club had mixed
eelings. The euphoria of beginning
the collegiate season was somewhat
dampened by the day's fourth-place
fifish. Yet, the mood was not that
of dejection but one of optimism.
On top of the list of positives
was the performance of first-year
fencer Jeff White. In his first colle-
giate meet, White defeated the top
fencer from Northwestern, 5-1, and
the top fencer from Illinois, regarded
*as the top fencer in the entire meet,
-0. White was clearly Michigan's
best performer in Columbus.
The Wolverines went into the
seven-team field uncertain as to how
well they would perform due to the
fact they had. not held practice in
more than a month.
The lack of practice was not the
only difficulty facing the fencers.
Each squad which beat them was a
varsity team rather then a club team
like the Wolverines. The varsity
teams have much more experience
than those of club sport status.
Ohio State, the host school,
proved to be the class of the tourna-
ment, as it took first place, followed
closely by Northwestern.
The Wolverine fencers swept
Purdue in all four classes - men's
foil, women's foil, sabre and epee -
and defeated Miami (Ohio) in all but
the epee class. Illinois and Michigan
State both did not bring a women's
foil team to the meet, but were vic-
torious in the other classes against
the squad from Ann Arbor. Michigan
also lost in all four classes to
Northwestern and Ohio State.

momentum going in our favor and
clearly established the flow of the
game," VanDeWege said.
Wisconsin made a brief run in the
second half, but with 9:17 remain-
ing, and down by only seven,
Wisconsin's Robin Threatt was
whistled for an intentional foul and
disqualified when she slammed
Michigan's Nikki Beaudry to the
floor. Wisconsin seemed distracted
and never threatened again.
The disqualification was the re-
sult of a physical game, complete
with flying elbows, body checks and
"I don't think anybody likes to
play as physical a game as that one,"
Badger coach Mary Murphy said.
The keys for Michigan Sunday
- a balanced attack, aggressive de-
fense and quick hands - were the
missing ingredients Friday night,
when Michigan suffered an 88-61 de-
feat to a visiting Northwestern squad
(9-3, 2-1). At the half, the two
teams were deadlocked at 36-36, but
the Wildcats outpaced the Wolver-
ines in the second half to make it
Notable in Friday night's game
were Andrew's four blocked shots,
which increased her career total to
111, breaking the Michigan record of
108 previously held by Patrice Don-
ovan. With another block against
Wisconsin, Andrew is up to 112.
