second singles. If Northwestern
is to have any chance of catch-
ing Michigan off guard, they
will need superb efforts from
Bob Kaspars and Rosenbraugh.
But, with the Wolverines solid
one-two punch of Eric Friedler
and J'e f f Etterbeek, NU's
chances of pulling an upset are
slim.
Coach Eisner said the line-
ups for the two matches are
not definite. "I like to evalu-
ate the players after each
match, and make any changes
if I have to," he said. Eisner
also pointed out the depth on
his team.
j"We are close in ability at
third fourth, and fifth singles,"
(Jim Holman, Brad Holland,
and Buddy Gallagher).
Depth will make the difference
between t h e Wolverines and
Badgers at the Nielsen Tennis
Stadium in Madison. Playing in-
doors again should be no prob-
lem for Michigan, but according
to Eisner, it gives Wisconsin "a
30 per cent edge over the other
team."
This match means a lot to
the Badgers. Last year they
finished second to Michigan,
and did well in the Big Ten

meet. But this year, their
play has been sporadic, de-
spite Eisner's cautious warn-
ing that records are meaning-
less during play.
Cavs cruise
LANDOVER, Md. (I)-Bobby
Smith hit a 22-foot jump shot
with two seconds remaining last
night as the Cleveland Cava-
liers, who came back from a 13-
point second-quarter deficit, de-
feated the Washington Bullets
80-79 in the second game of their
National Basketball Association
quarter-final playoff.
The triumph evened the best-
of-seven set at one game apiece,
with the series resuming Satur-
day afternoon in Cleveland.
The Cavaliers, after hitting
only 29 per cent of their shots
in the first quarter, fell be-
hind 45-32 late in the second
period but rallied to tie the
score 57-57 with 3:52 left in
the third quarter.
Washington, which finished
one game behind Cleveland in
the Central Division while losing
four of six regular season games
to the Cavaliers, went ahead 79-
74 with 3:18 to play.
But the Bullets were shut out
the rest of the way, and Cleve-
land pulled to within 79-78 on
baskets by Jim Chones and Jim
Cleamons.
In the closing minute, Wash-
ington was charged with a
three - second violation, Smith
was called for travelling, and
Cleveland got its last chance
when Dave Bing of the Bullets
was detected carrying the ball
on a drive along the baseline
with six seconds to play.

"This year the Badgers team
is equal to or better than the
team they had last year," Eis-
ner insisted.
Wisconsin holds a 5-7 overall
record, and their big gun, Mike
Barr owns an unimpressive 4-11
mark so far this year.
The Badgers also defeated In-
diana in its last conference out-
ing. B a r r was defeated in
straight sets in both singles and
doubles against IU.
However, the Badgers do
have transfer student Scott
Huguelet, who h a s played
around .500 at singles but ex-
cels in doubles with an 8-3
record.
Against c o m m o n opponents
this year. Michigan defeated
Minnesota, 7-2, and Notre Dame,
8-1, using the home court ad-
vantage. Wisconsin also defeat-
ed Minnesota at home, but only
by a 5-4 count. Notre Dame trip-
ped up the Badgers 5-4.
Eisner feels that this compar-
ison is partially accurate as an
assessment to the strength of
both teams.
After the brief two day, two
game roadsswing, the tennis
team returns for a non-confer-
ence encounter with Kalamazoo
on April 20.

Jackson keeps Orioles hanging

By The Associated Press
TEMPE, Ariz.-Reggie Jack-
son is working out, but his agent
reiterated yesterday that Jack-
son may sit out the season
rather than report to the Balti-
more Orioles who acquired him
in a trade from Oakland.
"At the present, I would say
it looks like he's not going to
play, but I don't know for sure,"
Gary Walker told a reporter.
He pretty much feels that he
may have to sit out the season
rather go to Baltimore, Walker
said.
Walker would not disclose
what terms Jackson is de-

manding. He said negotiations
with the Orioles are "just at
an impasse. There's no pro-
gress being made."
Walker said a report that
Jackson was asking $3 million
was "erroneous and off the
mark." He also discounted a
story that Jackson was asking
for a lot of money because he
supports children at a Tucson'
orphanage.
Jackson is working out with
the baseball team at Arizona'
State University here, his alma
mater, and is putting in a full'
day in the land development
company where he is a partner
.with Walker.

Thomas to play?
HOUSTON - Former Dallas
and Washington running back
Duane Thomas, in a rare inter-
view, says he hopes to be play-
ing for ther Houston Oilers next
season.
"Other people have told me I

Thomas, who visited Oiler
Coach 0. A. "Bum" Phillips
and his family during last
season, said he liked the re-
ception he had received.
"We laid essential ground
work," Thomas said. "That was
important to me. I want a good
foundation with the Oilers. When
you build a house, you don't
start by putting on the roof."
After stormy seasons with
Dallas, Washington and the
World Football League, Thomas
says he's looking forward to the
upcoming season.
Thomas, who had a pair of
800-yard seasons at Dallas, said
he didn't want to name anyone
he might beat out "but Houston
wouldn't want me to come down
here if it wasn't to win a start-
ing job."
"I'm working out daily, run-
ning six miles," Thomas said.
"Primarily, it's by myself. I'm
210 now, and I'll play thisdsea-
son at 215. I feel good. I could
play football the rest of my
life."

Kuhn's dilemma
NEW YORK - Terming his
meeting with American League
officials as "useful," Commis-
sioner Bowie Kuhn is now con-
sidering his next step in base-
ball's Toronto - Washington di-
lemma.

The commissioner met with
AL President Lee MacPhail and
the AL Planning Committee in
Chicago Tuesday to discuss the
league's plans to expand to To-
ronto and possible solutions for
Kuhn's request that baseball be
returned to Washington, D.C.
Kuhn earlier had tied AL
expansion to Toronto to a re-
turn of baseball to Washing-
ton, saying that unless the AL
could produce a formula for
such a return, he would en-
dorse instead National League
pursuit of the Canadian city.
One of the earlier suggestions
for returning baseball to the
nation's capital had involved to
have the Orioles play a portion
of their home schedule there.
Conversations between Kuhn
and AL officials are expected
to resume later this week.

White (a Cowboy
DALLAS-Danny White, who
played quarterback for Mem-
phis in the now defunct World
Football League, signed yester-
day with the Dallas Cowboys
of the National Football League.
White was a Cowboy third-
round draft choice in 1974, but
signed with Memphis where he
played two years and passed
for 2,553 yards and 20 touch-
downs in 30 games and also led
the league in punting.
