Netters set to match Big
By CHUCK JAFFE
After losing an All-American singles
player and sharing the Big Ten tennis
title for the first time in 14 years, some
people might expect the Michigan
men's tennis team to be preparing for a
rebuilding season. But Michigan coach
Brian Eisner and his team are out to
prove a point; the Wolverines don't
rebuild, they reload.
The Wolverines will take aim at
Kalamazoo College today at 12:30 in the
Track and Tennis Building in their
home opener. Then, after the Witchita
State Invitational, they return to the
courts on April 2 to start their quest for
a 15th consecutive Big Ten crbwn.
TODAY'S MATCH will be more than
a prelude to the Big Ten season
however. A Wolverine victory would
raise Eisner's coaching record at
Michigan to 198-43, tying him with
William Murphy as Michigan's win-
ningest tennis coach ever.
"You don't think about things like
that," said Eisner, whose teams have
won 106 of the 109 Big Ten matches he
has coached.' "I don't think that any
coach looks at that. Instead, I'd like to
concentrate on having these guys go out
and play good tennis. I really didn't
even know about the record until the
But so far this season, Michigan has
not played their usual brand of good
tennis. In a trip to Florida and Texas,
Michigan lost three of eight matches,
and dropped out of the top 20 team
"SIX OFsthe eight teams were ranked
in the top 20, and normally we don't
face six top 20 teams in a season,"
Eisner said. "The fact that we're 3-5 is
meaningless, unless you know why
"It's just a tremendous benefit when
the final analysis comes along," Eisner
added, "and the final analysis will be
whether we can win the Big Ten cham-
pionship, and go to the NCAAs, and do
Eisner will go with the same lineup
today that he 'used during the team's
trip, and although he is considering
lineup changes, he feels that this is
probably his strongest unit.
AT FIRST singles will be All-
American Michael Leach, who will be
followed by NCAA qualifier Mark
Mees. Tom Haney will play third
singles, with Ross Laser fourth and
senior Ihor Debryn fifth singles. Bill
Godfrey, a senior transfer student from
Colorado will play the sixth singles
Leach and Mees combine to make the
first doubles team, while last year's Big,
Ten doubles champs; Haney and
Debryn return at second doubles. God-
frey and Laser had teamed at third
doubles, but Eisner has paired Godfrey
with sophomore Rodd Schreiber in
recent practices, and this new pair will
get the call against Kalamazoo.
"If there is any key to our season, it
will be that we have to keep improving,
both as a team and individually, and
that we play with confidence, and play
relaxed," Eisner said. "The minute we
go out there and aren't making our
shots and aren't playing like the best,
then we can be beaten. We have to
really try to improve and execute well.
This is a veteran team, and we should
be able to play with anyone."
"WE CAME back (from Texas)
really hungry, and we're ready to take
the ,Big Ten title," adds captain Leach,
who lost his Big Ten singles title last
year, but is hoping to capture it again in
his final season. "The team came a long
way on the trip, and we're going to give
everybody we play all that they can
Now, with the Big Ten season ready
to begin, Brian Eisner has one thing to
prove; that his team is reloaded and
ready to go for a 15th consecutive con-
