Pro playoffs

shaping up

76ers fall
prey to Hawks,
105=93
ATLANTA (AP) - Tiny Charlie
Criss, the smallest player in the
National Basketball Association,
scored 11 of his 16 points in the final
period last night to power the Atlanta
Hawks to a 105-93 victory over
Philadelphia, narrowing the 76ers' lead
in their best-of-seven playoff series to 2-
1.
Game No. 4 will be played Sunday in
Atlanta.
The 5-foot-8 Criss and fellow guard
Eddie Johnson sparked an 11-2 Atlanta
streak late in the fourth period to wrap
up the contest.
With Atlanta leading only 86-85, Criss
dropped in a pair of free throws with 56
remaining -and then sneaked in for a
layup 22 seconds later- to give the
Hawks a 90-85 lead.
Johnson then drove the lane and con-
verted a three-point play with 4:54 left
and added two free throws 35 seconds
later. Reserve center Steve Hawes
closed out Atlanta's spurt, marred only
by a basket by Philadelphia's Lionel
Hollins, by tipping in a bucket at 4:02
for a 97-87 lead.
Hawes topped the balanced Atlanta
attack with 20 points. Johnson added 19
and Wayne "Tree" Rollins had 18.
Julius Erving led the 76ers with 26
points and Hollins added 22.
Rollins scored 11 of his points in the
third period, which ended with Atlanta
in front 75-73. The Hawks' biggest lead

Bruins burn
Penguins,
4-1
BOSTON (AP) - Rick Middleton
scored to set off a three-goal explosion
in the second period that sent the
Boston Bruins to a 4-1 victory over the
Pittsburgh Penguins in the second
game of their National Hockey League
playoff series last night.
The victory evened the best-of-five
series at 1-1 with the third game
scheduled for tomorrow night in Pit-
tsburgh.
Wayne Cashman's goal at 11:15 of the
third period gave Boston a 4-1 lead. But
1:01 later, Rod Schutt scored for the
Penguins to ruin goalie Gerry
Cheevers' bid for the ninth playoff
shutout of his career.
Boston dominated play throughout
and outshot Pittsburgh 42-17.
After a scoreless first period, Mid-
dleton started his scoring when he
broke up the middle between two
Penguins, took a lead pass from Mike
Milbury and cruised in alone on goalie
Greg Millen. He drew Millen out of the
net, then knocked the puck by him at
1:42 of the second period.
Don Marcotte's 31st career playoff
goal at 10:38 of the period shot Boston
into a 2-0 lead. Peter McNab carried the
puck in deep on the right side and threw
it in front to Marcotte, who tipped it
past Millen.
A little more than a minute later, the
Bruins scored again when Brad Park
connected on a slap shot from the top of
the right circle at 11:41 of the period.

Blue netters ready to
court Hawkeyes Gophers

Y ,_

By MIKE WERNER
There will be double-barrel action
this .weekend at the Liberty Racquet
Club in Ann Arbor as the Michigan
men's tennis team takes on the Iowa
Hawkeyes and Minnesota Gophers.
According to Michigan coach Brian
Eisner, Iowa, led 'by ace Tom
Hotlmann, is a "well balanced team."
Eisner described Hotmann as "one of
the top ten players in this part of the
country." Holtmann reached the
quarter-finals of the Penn Indoor
Singles Championship held in Ann
Arbor earlier this year.
MINNESOTA STARTED the season
with great potential, but various
ailments have put three of the Gophers'
top ten netters on the sidelines. "They

Mees
S.. surprise No. 1 seed

would have been contenders in the Big
Ten without all their injuries," Eisner
acknowledged.
"They're very well coached," th
Michigan coach continued, "and it
always a tough meet when we play
them."

pages 11, 13
In a somewhat surprising move,
Eisner has slotted freshman Mark
Mees into the number one singles spot
for both matches. Eisner feels the
lineup shuffle is justified.
"MARK HAS ONLY lost one mat4
all season (Cal-Berkeley), and he beat
Ohio State's number one player."
Another freshman, Minnesota native
Louis McKee, will see court action.
The Wolverines, ranked ninth in the
nation, are undefeated in dual meets
this season and 9-1 overall, their only
loss coming in San Francisco at the
hands of top-ranked. Cal.-Berkeley .
Iowa is 0-2 in Big Ten action, and
Minnesota is 0-1 in conference play ai
1-8 overall.
The Blue netters meet Iowa
tomorrow at 2:30 p.m., and will face
Minnesota Saturday at 1:00 p.m. Again,
both matches are to be played at the
Liberty Racquet Club (not the Track
and Tennis Building).
