The loss of one player is all it takes to
throw off the balance of a team.
Just ask the Michigan volleyball team.
When outside hitter Kristen
Ruschiensky injured her knee during the
second match of the Indi ana game Friday,
the team suffered for the rest of the week-
The Wolverines (10-6 overall, 4-2 Big
Ten) beat Indiana but fell apart in
Saturday's game against Illinois. The
weekend results leave them in a third
place tie with Wisconsin in the Big Ten.
Michigan beat Indiana 15-12,15-9 and
15-12. The Wolverines kept the Hoo-
siers' best player, outside hitter Jennifer
Magelson, from being a big offensive
threat. Magelson had only four kills and
made eight errors.
Michigan's defense performed well
with solid blocking from Sarah Jackson
and Suzy O'Donnell. Freshman outside
it with Big Ten foes
hitter Karen Chase also had a great game.
Friday was her, first full night of play this
However, Michigan struggled in
Saturday's game against Illinois (11-4
overall, 2-4 Big Ten). The Wolverines
lost 8-15, 14-16 and 10-15.
Michigan had many chances to knock
off the Illini. The Wolverines led, 8-0, in
the first match, 13-8, in the second and,
10-0, in the third. However, Illinois ral-
lied to win all three matches.
In addition, the loss of Ruschiensky
affected Michigan's offensive play.
The offense turned into a one-woman
team. Senior co-captain Shannon
Brownlee had 20 kills and was successful
on 42 percent of her attacks.
"We didn't play very well against Illi-
nois," Giovanazzi said. "Only one player
played well, Shannon Brownlee. Every-
one else had average or subpar nights."
Senior co-captain Suzy O'Donnell
"Blocking was terrible, serving was
not so great and our side-out was not so
good," she said. "We're disappointedwith
Giovannazi believes that Illinois won
because it is a young team that came into
Saturday's matchup after a huge loss at
Another reason for Michigan's loss
was the absence of Ruschiensky.
"People weren't sure about responsi-
bility," Michigan volleyball coach Greg
Giovannazi said. "(The loss of
Ruschiensky), disrupted our offensive
Illinois' main threat Emi Borske had a
great night. The sophomore registered 23
kills and 18 digs.
The Wolverines face Minnesota and
Wisconsin this weekend at home in
Michigan's "Rock the House" match
Ruschiensky will find out today
whether or not she will be able to play in
