Michigan tennis coach Brian Eisner
seems to like playing musical chairs.
He's been playing it with his three best
players, Michael Leach, Matt Horwitch
.and Mark Mees all season long, and
when the 12th ranked netters face Min-
nesota and Wisconsin today and
tomorrow, any of the trio could be slot-
ted for first singles.
"There are certain criteria that I look
at to decide who will play first," Eisner
said. "Generally, I decide based on who
we are playing, what kind of player
they have, the way our guys have been
playing, and the kind of surface."
TODAY'S MATCH will be at the var-

much losing this year. Leach is un-
beaten in 12 matches, while Horwitch
has lost one of his 11 matches. Mees is 8-
4, but has had some hard luck this
season.
If the three players continue at their
current paces, they could all earn
NCAA berths again, which would prove
that Eisner's rotational scheme is suc-
cessful.
"YOU CAN'T really worry about the
NCAAs," Mees said. "That either
comes or it doesn't."
Once they get to the NCAAs, the net-
ters could face one of their stiffest
challenges, the possibility of playing
against one another for an NCAA
crown.
"If we were to meet in the NCAAs,"
Leach said, "it would be in the finals,
because we're placed at opposite ends
of the draw. I don't think any of us
would complain."
"That would be very, very nice,"
Eisner said. "I'd really love that."
Perhaps he'd like it even more than
playing musical chairs.
