TWO WOLVERINES ENTERED
NCAA tennis tourney starts

By BOB MILLER
)ver the course of the 1976
men's tennis season, Michigan
proved itself to be the power of
the conference, again.
But, entering the NCAA tour-.
nament, the Wolverines will
take on the best in the nation
with an abbreviated squad.
Captain Eric Friedler and Jeff
Etterbeek will be the represen-
tatives of the Big Ten's cham-
pionship team when they go
against names like Brian
Teacher of UCLA, and top-
seeded Peter Fleming, former
Michigan standout, now with
UCLA.
The Bruins are NCAA de-
fending champions and rate
as favorites to continue to
dominate the field.
This year, however, the field
was cut drastically, admitting
134 singles players down from
245 last year. Doubles also felt
the axe, as only 70 duo's will
participate, whittled down
compared to 122 competitors
from one year ago.
The first round begins today
in Corpus Christi, Texas, in the
92nd annual tournament.
For Michigan, Friedler and
Etterbeek are a strong team,
especially in doubles. Friedler,
runnerup in singles in the con-
ference, owns an 18-3 record,
while Etterbeek went 18-4 dur-
ing the season, and took the title
for second singles.

In doubles, the Michigan pair
was nearly unbeatable, losing
only to non-conference power
Alabama and winning the Big
Ten doubles crown.
"Our goal is to finish in the
top 10, but that will be tough
to do with only two players in
the tournament," said Coach
Brian Eisner. The Wolverines
have accomplished this feat
in each of the last three
years, winding up sixth, third
and fourth.
A tournament selection com-
mittee decided that the top 20
teams in the country would be
allowed a full team of four
players.
Those teams are, UCLA, USC,
SMU, Stanford, Texas, Hous-
ton, Trinity, Pepperdine, Miami
(Fla.), San Jose St., Florida,
Georgia, North Carolina, Okla-
homa St., Princeton, Utah,
Brigham Young, Arizona St.,
and Big Ten runnerup, Ohio
State., The other competing
schools were chosen on "a
merit base from other schools,"
which means by records.
Coach Eisner was not pleas-
ed by the selection, noting that
some athletic conferences are
represented by as many as
three full teams and that cer-
tain NCAA regions are over-
stocked. Eisner indicated that
he will bring this matter up
informally with the other coach-
es at the tourney.

NCAA a put Kentucky
on probation for violations

By Tie Associated Press
TARPON SPRINGS, Fla -
Football recruiting violations
by the University of Kentucky
may lead to athletic probation
for the Wildcats before the year
is out, the Orlando Sentinel Star
reported yesterday.
The newspaper quoted Ken-
tacky Football Coach Fran Cur-
ci as saying probation "would-
n't surprise me."
Sources in the National
Collegiate A t h l e t i c
Association and the South-
eastern Conference said the
Kentucky irregularities cen-
tered around recruiting in-

fractions of two years ago,
some of them dealing with
South Florida high school ath-
letes, according to the news-
paper.
SEC athletic directors and
football and basketball coaches
are holding their annual spring
meeting in Tarpon Springs.
Kentucky Coach Fran Curci
acknowledged that his program
was under formal investigation
by the NCAA.
volving charges of point-shav-
ing, drug involvement and the
alleged association of star run-
ning back Sonny Collins with

principals in a kidnap-murdeg
case.
The Wildcats posted a 2-8-1
record. Curci has a 19-19-1
record in his three years at the
Lexington school.
NCAA probation usually pro-
hibits a school from participat-
ing in television and post-sea-
son bowl appearances.
Meanwhile, SEC athletic di-
rectors went on record "ex-
pressing deep concern" over
how NCAA limitations on the
numbers of football and basket-
ball coaches would affect the
coaching profession and new
people coming into the field.
