Special To The Daisy
CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas - Second seeded
singles player Brian Teacher of UCLA was
the first upset victim in the opening round of
the 92nd annual NCAA Championship Tourna-
State's Gary Albertine, 6-3, 7-5. Teacher was
the only highly regarded player to lose in the
first round.
Teammate Peter Fleming, the top seed in
the tourney, picked up the slack with a 7-5,
6-0 conquest of Ali Kahn from Oklahoma State.
UCLA was favored to win again this year, but
west coast rivals USC and Stanford will try to
take advantage of Teacher's downfall.
IN MATCHES of interest to Big Ten fans,
only one of six Wolverine and Buckeye per-
formers remains in the field. Francisco Gon-
zales, number one singles title holder of the
conference, advanced into the second round
after downing Jackie Bushman of Auburn, 6-3,

Gonzales will face Stewart Keller from
Texas in the next round.
Francisco's brother Pedro was dumped 6-2,
6-4, by Jeff Robinson from Alabama, who is
ranked 13th. John Botica and Jim Flower also
fell by the wayside for OSU as they were dis-
posed of by Chris Delaney of SMU, 6-7, 7-6,
6-1, and USC's Mike Newberry, 6-3, 6-2, re-
BIG TEN team champion Michigan fared
no better than Ohio State. Senior Eric Fried-
ler played his last match for the Maize and
Blue, losing to Joe Edler of SMU, 4-6, 7-5, 6-4.
Jeff Etterbeek dropped Rice's Ross Persons,
6-1, 4-6, 6-4, but then felt the agony of defeat
when he was eliminated by Ricardo Ycaza of
Houston, 1-6, 6-4, 6-1.
IN DOUBLES, Etterbeek and Friedler will
open against the Dartmouth duo of Rob Tesar'
and Peter Renner.
After one day of competition, UCLA, USC,
Stanford, and Trinity, as expected, were lead-
ing the pack.
