However, Etterbeek may not have

the nation last year and a performer on
the National Junior Davis Cup cham-
pions, would have provided him quite a
stiff challenge. Horwitch is also a two-

the only loss to Mid-America conferen-
ce champ Miami, when he broke the
bone in his toe.
The season swings into full form this
Friday and Saturday with matches
against midwestern power Southern
Illinois-Edwardsville and Kentucky.
Both are at 7 p.m. in the Track and
Tennis Building.
Southern Illinois boasts the heir ap-
parent to Arthur Ashe as the top black
player in the country, Juan Fawow
from St. Louis. He was the NCAA
champion in division two play last
season.
HOWEVER, SIU may not even make
the trip to Ann Arbor as they have
several players sick or injured. If they
do, Eisner stated plainly and simply,
"they're as tough as boiled oil since
they have,all their players back from
last year." Already this season they
have downed Big 10 contender Wiscon-
sin,7-2.
Kentucky will not be as formidable as
they fell to SIU, 6-3. Nevertheless,
Eisner's crew has many stiff tests
ahead of them when they travel to
Texas. While in the Longhorn state, the
Wolverines will tangle with second-
rated Trinity of Texas, fourth-ranked
Southern Methodist, seventh-rated Pan
American, and 16th-ranked Texas.
Eisner's hopes for the upcoming
campaign are extremely high as he
claims this group is "much deeper than
last year's team." And although he lost
the services of Mark Freedman and
Scott Seemen, two of his top players, his
analysis seems correct. But his forces
still will not receive the recognition
they probably deserve unless they
knock off the top flight competition they
will face down South. Eisner knows how
difficult that will be.

COACH EISNER is hoping for a
speedy return of Horwitch. In his stead
will be the much improved senior from
Chicago, Brad Holland. Holland
teamed with fifth man Jack Neinken for
the Big Ten title a year ago at second
doubles.
The third and fourth slots will be
manned by Jud Shaufler, also a league
champ in #2 singles and Ihor Debryn, a
freshman from Detroit who was tabbed
as tie 50th best netman in the nation.'
Shaufler, incidentally, also copped the
Big Ten doubles championship with Et-
terbeek.
Neinken and transfer student Peter
Osler round out the singles players.
Osler played as high as third singles at
Indiana, according to Eisner. A doubles
player will -be Ollie Owens, a returning
letterman from Ann Arbor Pioneer.
Steve Solys and Rick Garcia have also
seen action this campaign.
THIS SEASON has already begun for
Eisner and his optimistic charges as
both Miami of Ohio and Notre Dame
came to Ann Arbor and left on the short
end of 8-1 defeats. Horwitch suffered

DETROIT (AP) - Center Leon
Douglas led a balanced scoring attack'
last night as the Detroit Pistons
outlasted the Seattle Supersonics 121-
116 to keep alive their slim National
Basketball Association playoff hopes.
Douglas finished with 23 points while
M.L. Carr had 18 and John Shumate 17
to top six Pistons who finished in double
figures. By winning, the Pistons moved
to within four games of Milwaukee for
the last playoff spot in the Western Con-
ference.
Detroit jumped on top 34-28 with
Douglas hitting 13 points in the first
period and went on to pull.in front by
113-96 in the fourth period.
Then, the Sonics, led by Wally Walker
and Gus Williams, pulled to within 119-
116 with four seconds to go. But two free
throws by Detroit's Jim Price put the
game out of reach.
Williams had 32 points while Jack
Sikma and Dennis Johnson each had 20
for the Sonics, who are playoff bound.
It was only the third loss in Seattle's
last nine games.

single in the top of the ninth inning lif-
ted the Detroit Tigers to a 4-3 exhibition

Milt May was walked intentionally
and Wallace then walked Aurelio
Rodriguez to load the bases before
Wagner grounded a single between first
and second base to drive in the winning
run.

valuable player as chosen by his
teammates.
Kawa, widely recognized as being

something I'll remember for the rest of
my life."
