NU ends netters' seas

The party's over. . . its time to call
it a season ...
And so it is for the Michigan women's
tennis team, as it bowed out of the 1978
season, not gracefully, but in a fight
against heat.
THE WOMEN, after a masterful
domination of the state AIAW tour-
nament and a 9-0 rout of Marshall in the
first round of the midwest AIAW tour-
ney, fell to the claws of the North-
western team, 7-2 in the second round.

"It was real hot when we played,"
commented Michigan coach Bill Flood.
"That's not an excuse for why we lost,
but combined with the pressure of win-
ning all the doubles to win the dual
meet, it was tough."
Michigan lost four out of its six
singles matches, with number two Sue
Weber and number five Lisa Wood the
only victors. The only chance to beat
Northwestern at Muncie, Ind. last
weekend would have been to win all of
the doubles matches. The women did
not succeed.

Pistons land 'Bubbles'
PONTIAC-Former Detroit prep star Robert "Bubbles" Hawkins
signed a three-year contract with the Detroit Pistons yesterday, the National
Basketball Association club announced.
General Manager Bob Kauffman said the signing was contingent on the
ability of the 23-year-old guard to make the team.
Hawkins had played two full seasons in the NBA before he was waived
last Novemberby the New Jersey Nets.
His most notable pro campaign was in 1976-77 when he played in 52
games and averaged 19.3 points for the Nets. But he got into a contract
hassle with the club last season, stayed away from training camp and played
in only 15 games before he was waived on Nov. 28.
Frustrated Shero quits Flyers
PHILADELPHIA-Fred Shero has resigned as coach of the Phila-
delphia Flyers because he feels he has exhausted his ability to motivate the
team he led to two Stanley Cup championships, he said yesterday.
"I have decided after a great deal of thought and consultation with my
business manager and my wife to resign as the coach of the Philadelphia
Flyers," Shero said.
"The reason for this resignation is simply that I feel my effectiveness
to motivate the players as well as to inspire them to the degree that would
result in a Stanley Cup victory has been exhausted," Shero explained at a
press conference in his aggnt's office.
The Flyers issued a statement Monday saying that Shero submitted his
resignation last Thursday, but that they had not accepted it.
Flyers' General Manager Keith Allen said he and board chairman Ed
Snider had asked to meet again with their reluctant coach to see if they could
get him to change his mind.
Allen refused to say when the meeting would take place with Shero, who
has one year left on his Flyers' contract.
Shero'said he was available for such a meeting but that nothing would
change his mind. "I like dialogue with anybody, but I'll tell them the same
thing I'm telling you.
"Right now I don't feel like coaching. I feel like I've lost something. I
can't generate any enthusiasm for hockey," Shero said. "I don't believe that
I can do the job with this team anymore."
