Women's basketball tips off season with
71-69 squeaker over New Zealand-Waikato
By Jim Rose
Daily Sports Writer
Although last night's women's bas-
ketball game was between Michigan
and New Zealand-Waikato, you might
have thought that there were four dif-
ferent teams playing.
The two squads that took the floor for
the second half of the exhibition were
nothing like the two that played the
Despite a horrendous second half,
the Wolverines managed to hang on for
a 71-69 victory.
Michigan shot out of the gates, roll-
ingtoa45-27 halftime lead. The swarm-
ing Wolverine defense led to eleven
Waikato turnovers. Combine the turn-
overs with a 27-16 rebounding advan-
tage, and Michigan was cruising.
"I thought we played almost a perfect
firsthalf," Wolverine coach Trish Rob-
erts said. "We came out like I expected
us to. It was a fun first half."
Sophomore Pollyanna Johns played
herfirst game since injuring her knee
nine games into last season. The center
looked like she never missed a beat,
dominating the Waikato squad in the
paint. She had 16 points and 10 re-
bounds in the first half alone.
"I thought Pollyanna did a real good
job in the first half," Roberts said. "She
had alot of key shots and key rebounds."
At the start of the second half, how-
ever, Michigan's defense faltered.
"We came out in the second half and
we let up," Roberts said. "The biggest
thing we let up was our defensive pres-
Waikato took advantage, scoring 22
points in the first eight minutes of the
Five minutes and several Wolverine
turnovers later, Waikato went on a I1-
2 run to tie the game at 60.
Forward Jodie Cameron typified the
New Zealand attack, scoring all 17 of
her points during the frantic second
Freshman guard Ann Lemire put
Michigan back on track, scoring six
points in less than a minute.
After her second basket, Lemire stole
the inbounds pass and sank another
short jumper, putting the Wolverines
ahead by six. The flurry gave Michigan
just enough of a cushion to hold off
Waikato for the rest of the contest.
In her first collegiate performance,
Lemire finished with nine points in 24
"I was excited, and because of that I
was nervous," Lemire said. "I missed
some easy shots in the first half, but as
the game went on, I got into the flow
and forgot about being nervous."
With the ball and a two-point lead,
the Wolverines called a timeout with 47
seconds remaining. The timeout didn't
do much good, however, as a shot-
clock violation on the ensuing posses-
sion gave the ball back to Waikato. i
New Zealand's Leone Patterson had
a clear look at a three-pointer from the
top of the key to win the game, but the
shot went off the left iron with five
seconds to play. Michigan controlled
the rebound, and Jennifer Kiefer held '
onto the ball as time expired.
Johns led the Wolverines with 201
points and 13 rebounds, despite sitting
out much of the second half because of
"I look at the game a little differently
now, after sitting out a year," Johns
said. "I learned a lot just by watching
last season. I'm still learning a lot."1
Michigan's only other player to score
in double figures was Molly Murray,
who provided a spark by hitting her first
four shots off the bench. She, finished
with 10 points. Kiefer helped out with
Center Sonja Akkerman led the
Waikato squad with 18 points and 14
rebounds. Cameron's 17 were second-
best and Patterson chipped in I 1.
The contest was New Zealand's
fourth in as many nights. Leanne Walker
gave the Wolverines high praise after
"They're the most balanced team
we've played yet," Walker said. "They
totally out-rebounded us, and they have
some great shooters."

Fatigued Wolverines sweep double-dual meet
By Marc Lightdale
Daily Sports Writer
Swimming tired in November is
going to make Michigan faster swim-"
mers in the NCAA Tournament.
Last night, a depleted women's
swimming squad completed a double-
dual meet sweep, defeating Iowa, 185-
104, and Penn State, 163-132, at
Although the Wolverines prevailed
with sizeable margins of victory, the
rigorous training last month created a
noticeably fatigued squad.
"We have some people who are
dusted," Michigan coach Jim
Richardson said. "For the work we
have done, we swam really well."
Junior breaststroker Jodi Navta
thought the team swam well for the
extreme level of fatigue.
"This week we are definitely the
most tired we've been the whole year,"
Against Iowa, Kerri Hale (9:58.70)
picked up first place in the 1000-
meter freestyle followed by fellow
teammate Melissa Sullivan who fin-
ished second (10:10.13).
In the 200 freestyle, Michigan's
Stephanie Morey (153.51) notched
first place followed by Kim Johnson
Beth Jackson added a stellar perfor-
mance, picking up first place in the 100
backstroke (57.39) followed by Michi-
gan sophomore Linda Riker (59.13).
Coach Richardson praised
"Beth Jackson had two really strong
swims in the backstroke," Richardson
In the 200 butterfly, Talor Bendel
notched a first-place finish (205.13)
followed by Michigan freshman,
Jenny Kurth (207.05).
Captain Megan Gillam won the 50
freestyle (24.11) followed by sopho-
more Kim Johnson (23.99).
The Wolverines completed the dual
meet sweep after defeating Penn State.
Michigan won the medley relay
(146.40) featuring Jackson, Navta,
Melissa Stone and Sullivan.
In the 1000 freestyle, Kerr Hale
captured the first-place finish
(9:58.70) followed by Penn State's
Liz Rossi (10:06.17).
The Nittany Lions' Kim Kephart
captured the 200 freestyle (151.99)
followed by teammate Adrienne
Jackson won the 100 backstroke
(57.39) followed by Penn State se-
nior Lisa Pastrana who finished sec-
Navta picked up a first-place finish
in the 100 breaststroke (104.73) by
more than a full second over Penn
State's Karna Lorhammer (106.42).
Gillam captured first place in the
50 freestyle (23.60). Freshman
Valerie Pochran won the one-meter
diving competition (241.80).
Richardson looks forward to pro-
viding the team with a break from
their training regimen.
"We've stayed very honest in our
water training," Richardson said. "The
team needs to work on getting some
Although the team was fatigued,
Richardson does not have plans to
discard the intense training.
"You can't peak every swim meet,"
Richardson said. "The strategy is to,
train as hard as you can without going
