Unbeaten men face Southern pair

The Michigan men's tennis team travels to Lexing-
ton, Kentucky this weekend for a triangular meet
with host University of Kentucky and perennial
power University of Florida.
After easily defeating three midwestern teams thisj
week, Wichita State 8-1, Oklahoma State 6-3 and
Notre Dame 9-0, the netters anticipate stiff com-
petition from the two southern schools.
Despite the fact that Kentucky tennis coach Grad-
dy Johnson claims that, "we are only 8-8 and having a
rough year," Michigan coach Brian Eisner refuses to
take the Wildcats lightly. "Last year we beat Ken-
tucky indoors here 6-3, in a real tough fight. They
have lost a couple of good players, but two freshmen
have filled in."
After the Kentucky match on Saturday, the
Wolverines must tangle with one of the Southeastern
Conference's strongest tennis schools, the University
WOmen lookin

of Florida. According to Coach Eisner, "the Univer-
sity of Florida, after beating Miami of Florida this
year, is the top team in the state. They are always
strong and may get a top twenty ranking."
IN addition to the challenging competition, the net-
ters confront the unfamiliarity of competing outside
for the first time this year. "Due to the weather, we
haven't even practiced outside yet," said Eisner.
Some bad news befell Michigan yesterday. Number
one singles ace Jeff Etterbeek twisted his ankle and
may not compete in the match. "Jeff will make the
trip to Kentucky, but we have to wait and see how it
affects his play," said Eisner.
If number one singles player Etterbeek is ham-
pered by the twisted ankle, the netters may be in
some trouble. Eisner said that Etterbeek "was in
some pain" after the mishap, but will make the trip to
Lexington. The ankle was immediately treated with
ice and there was little swelling, but Eisner was still

concerned for his number one player.
At Notre Dame, Etterbeek; favored to win the Big
Ten singles title this year, rallied to defeat the Irish
top netter, Mark Hoyer, 4-6, 6-3, 6-2. The victory stlar
ted a barrage of wins for the Wolverines, culminating
in a 9-0 whitewashing.
The other injury slowing Michigan down is the
nagging back belonging to number four singles
player Jud Shiufler. At Notre Dame, Shaufler
defeated Mark Trueblood 6-1, 3-6, 6-1, and said that he
felt much better. '
Hopefully, for the Wolverines, both Etterbeek and
Shaufler will be primed for the season's first outdoor
competition. This triangular meet is important for
Michigan if they want to solidify a national ranking,
but as Eisner revealed, it won't be easy. "This could
be a very difficult weekend for us. They are both
good, solid teams."

Wildcats last year in the regionals, they
have the power to turn the tables in this
match. Co-captain Whit Stodgill ex-
plained their improvement since last
year. "We've now got Barb Fischley
and I'm playing better than last year.
We're gonna stop them," said Stodgill.
ANOTHER STRONG point this year
is the doubles competition. In the Wild-
cat debacle of last year, the team lost
all of their doubles matches. But this
year, the doubles teams are greatly
improved. "Our doubles have pulled us
through this year," said team member
Ann Kercher. "We haven't lost many."
The doubles have chalked up a record
of 23-1 in nine matches.
One more plus for the women netters
is the Wildcats' loss of Barb Eden, who
in the past was one of their top players.
"Without Barb Eden, I don't think
they'll be nearly as strong as last
year," said Kercher. "But still, they
have a lot of potential." Nonetheless,
Wildcat coach June Booth hasn't added
anybody new to the team. Wolverine
coach Theo Shepherd said, "She
(Booth) has built up the team very fast
into quite a contender."
A MINUS FOR the match is that it
will be played at Huron Valley Tennis
Club, due to the 80 per cent chance of
rain for Friday. The courts there play
faster than those at Track and Tennis
Building, where the team has been
practicing. "It's a harder surface that's
faster. Everybody has to get out there
and hit," said Stodgill..
"If we play real well, and luck falls
with us, we have a real good chance,"
said Shepherd. Playing the number one,
singles will be captain Kathy Karzen,
then Sue Weber and co-captain Whit
Stodghill. Barb Fischley and Kathy
Krickstein are battling out for the num-
ber four and five positions, with Ann
Kircher playing number six.
Heading the doubles will be the un-
defeated team of Karzen and Fischley,
then Stodgill and Krickstein, with Ker-
cher and Lisa Wood playing third'

It's a fact . .@.
. . . Big Ten mighty once more
"A LL HAIL to the mighty Big Ten!," was the cry throughout the land.
No longer would the other conferences snub their noses at the ten
institutions rising above the Midwestern plateau.
Magic, Knighthood, and gallant Gophers all had their place in the reaf-
firmation of the Big Ten's national supremacy.
It's fact, not fiction, that the Big Ten is one of the most respected}
athletic conferences in the nation. Traditionally, the conference has always
excelled in many collegiate sports.
But these past few days have brought a new light to the plateau. Within
the past week, three Big Ten teams have won three national titles:
* Michigan State, led by Earvin "Magic" Johnson won the NCAA
basketball championship game over Indiana State.
" Indiana, coached by the colorful Bobby Knight, took the NIT basket-
ball tournament title by defeating conference rival Purdue.
" The Minnesota Gophers blazed trails the latter part of the season to
finish second-in the WCHA. The Gophers reached their summit when they
beat North Dakota for the NCAA hockey championship.
There's no doubt that the Big Ten's recent feat is impressive. This is the
first and only year a Big Ten team has won both the NCAA and NIT basket-
ball tournaments. Combine that with the hockey title in the same week, and
the Big Ten looks even better.
"Obviously, I'm very pleased," said Big Ten Commissioner Wayne
Duke in relation to this winning year.
But in Duke's mind, the most important aspect of the recent victory
streak is the level of competition involved.
"We've seen a resurgence in Big Ten basketball," commented Duke.
"And looking ahead to next fall, we've got a strong competitive group of
football teams to look forward to-Purdue, Michigan, Michigan State, and
Ohio State.
Good publicity
Aside from this past week's events, still more championship feathers
have been placed in the Big Ten's hat this season. Iowa won the NCAA
wrestling championship by the widest margin ever earlier this ronth.
What's significant about all these championships? Well, for one it's good
publicity. For another thing, it may help attract more top-rated young talent
to Big Ten schools. But most of all, it's the fans that benefit the most.
Sure, we all joke around about Northwestern every fall. But it's not
going to be a bed of roses for either Michigan or Ohio State next year.
Michigan State proved that this year. Next fall, the usual Big Ten ;
powerhouses will have to contend with a growing strain-young teams,
coached by young coaches who will challenge the "old timers." Purdue and
Indiana are typical of this new mold, as Ohio State might be with their new
Viewing the scene, the mixture of young talent with incoming recruits,X~
and the mixture of young coaches with established ones will make for an ex-
citing conference to watch.
The same situation was apparent in basketball this winter. Prior to the
season, some followers of the game were pointing towards the East, in par-
ticular at the Atlantic Coast Conference, home of Duke and North Carolina.
Still others looked to the West, at legendary UCLA.
But it was the Midwest where the champions and their runner-ups came
This conference has and will continue to be looked upon as a'leader in in-
tercollegiate athletics. For now however, it is the leader:No other athletic
conference in the nation can boast of what the Big Ten can.
