By Andy Knudsen
Daily Sports Writer
The Michigan women's volleyball
team's hopes of a first-ever berth to the
NCAA tournament were severely bad-
gered this weekend.
The Wolverines (8-8 Big Ten, 14-12
overall) lost in straight games Friday
night at Wisconsin (5-9, 13-13), 15-9,
15-12, 15-4, and at Minnesota (5-11,
11-15) Saturday, 15-3, 15-2, 15-13, as
they had trouble putting points on the
board.
"Both Wisconsin and Minnesota

played unbelievably well," coach Greg
Giovanazzi said.
Michigan knocked off both teams in
Cliff Keen Arena over the weekend of
Oct. 13-14, but hitting problems pre-
vented it from winning a game this
weekend, let alone closing out a season
sweep of either team.
The weekend started poorly for the
Wolverines as they had 30 hitting
errors and only 29 kills for a minus
.007 hitting percentage against the
Badgers.

Senior Shannon Brownlee led the
team in both categories with 11 kills
and nine hitting errors.
No one else on the team had more
than four kills.
"Both teams served us real tough and
we had trouble passing," Giovanazzi
said. "(Sophomore setter) Linnea
(Mendoza) didn't have many choices in
setting the ball."
Badgers Lauren Burny and Marisa
Mackey kept many of the Wolverines'
spikes from finding the floor, with 19

and 18 digs respectively.
Heather Dodaro powered Wisconsin
with 13 kills and Laura Abbinante had
all 41 of the Badgers' assists.
Michigan's hitting fared better against
the Gophers as it ended with a .193
hitting percentage, but it could only
manage five points in the first two
games.
But Giovanazzi said the team wasn't
hampered as much by point scoring
problems as it was by side-out prob-
lems.

"We didn't play long enough to score
points," he said. "We were under 50
percent (on side-outs) in both matches."
Brownlee again led the Wolverines
with 18 kills and junior Colleen Miniuk
added 10.
Minnesota posted an impressive .350
hitting percentage led by Heather
Dodaro's 22 kills behind a .513 per-
centage.
"They were unconscious, they hit at
will," Giovanazzi said. "I'm not sure
the team expected Minnesota to be as
good as they were."
Michigan's blocking game also
lacked in comparison to its opposition,
totaling four team blocks in each match
versus 13 for Wisconsin and 12 for
Minnesota. '

Giovanazzi did see one positive point
over the weekend though.
"I've been really impressed with
Linnea," he said. "She kept her head
when she was getting poor passing."
Mendoza had 20 assists against.the
Badgers and 41 against the Gophers.
The Wolverines will need a bost
of confidence if they hope to getan
invitation to the NCAA tournamept.
"The morale has been low since.-he
Indiana match (last weekend),"
Giovanazzi said. "Realistically forius
to get to the NCAA tournament*We
need to get one upset this weekend."
This weekend, the Wolverines face
No. 9 Ohio State Friday and NO, 7
Penn State Saturday at Cliff Keen in
important conference matchups.
