LEACH AND MEES KEY 9-0 ROUT

Wolverine netter

By CHUCK JAPFE
The Michigan men's tennis team
downed Kalamazoo College, 111-36,
yesterday, but the dual match wasn't
even that close. Those 111 game wins
translated into nine individual vic-
tories, as the Wolverines opened their
home season with a 9-0 whitewashing of
the Fighting Hornets.
Michael Leach started things off for
the Wolverines with a 6-1, 6-0 win over
Chris Burns at first singles. The match
was not typical of Leach's play,
however, as he used more finesse and
less power, to down the overmatched
Burns.
"I'VE ALWAYS been a power player,
but this year I'm adding a touch dimen-
sion to my game," Leach said. "I
stayed back an awful lot today, but
against tougher competition I'll stick
with my power game. The touch shots
can be the difference in winning a Big
Ten title, so I'm happy with the way I

played because I varied power with a
fair amount of touch, and I buried the
guy. I was pleased with my consistency
and variety today."
Junior Mark Mees followed Leach
with a 6-2, 6-0 victory over Mark Riley
at second singles. The match was a
battle of the baselines, and Mees kept
Riley running and talking to himself
throughout.
"My ground strokes have always been
the best part of my game, and I was
moving him around really well and he
got frustrated," Mees said. "I made a
few more errors than I would have liked
to, but I felt pretty good, and I think I
played pretty well."
TOM HANEY continued
Michigan's domination with a 6-0, 6-2
romp over Ven Johnson at third singles.
Haney, recovering from an elbow in-
jury that bothered him last season, kept
Johnson off balance for much of the
match, and forced his opponent into a

s squash
large number of errors.J
"I just don't give my points away
anymore," the junior from Ann Arbor
said. "If a guy can't hit a winner past
me then he's not going to beat me. '
Because my elbow isn't bothering me I
can play 100 percent this year, whereas
I was playing hurt and at 60 percent my
first two years.,,
At fourth singles, Ross Laser downed
Kalamazoo's Paul Showers, 6-2, 6-2,
while Ihor Debryn won at fifth singles,
6-1, 6-4. Senior transfer student Bill
Godfrey closed out the singles sweep
with a 6-2, 6-4 beating of Adam Bottorff
at sixth singles.
IN DOUBLES competition, Leach
and Mees were untouchable, dumping
Riley and Johnson, 6-1, 6-1, at first
doubles. The number-one doubles
combination played picture-perfect
tennis in its sweep. and both Mees and

Hornets
coach Brian Eisner look for more in the
future.
"The Leach-Mees team was super
today," Eisner said. "They went out
and didn't let down or give up anything
even though they were winning so
decisively."
"We were really working well
together," Mees added. "We've sort of
made a rule that anything in the air is
his, because that is his strong point, and
I take anything that bounces."
GODFREY and Rodd Schreiber
teamed at second doubles for a 6-1, 7-5
victory over Burns and Bottorff, and
Mark Strem and John Efstatos com-
pleted the sweep with a 2-6, 6-2, 6-2 win
over Dave Higdon and Kevin Johnson.
The match was the first varsity action
seen by both Strem and Efstatos, and
Eisner was pleased not only With their
performance but with the fact that they
got to see front-line playing time.
"This really provided a lot of
positives for us," Eisner said. "I did
expect us to be fairly decisive in the
match, but we had a number of players
trying to add things to their game and
they got to do it in match conditions. In
addition, we got nine players into the
lineup, and it is important for these
guys to get match experience because
they might be very important down the
line.
"I was pleased with the level of con-
centration," Eisner added. "When
you're winning easily, it is easy not to
concentrate, and then you don't im-
prove."

Pistons' playoff drive continues;
Detroit downs Sonics, 119-115

By PAUL HELGREN
With Wire service Reports
PONTIAC- Kelly Tripucka's basket
provided the winning margin and Isiah
Thomas followed with a pair of in-
surance free throws to give the Detroit
Pistons a 119-115 victory over the Seat-
tle SuperSonics in a National Basket-
ball Association game last night.
Thomas broke a 111-111 tie when he
hit from 19 feet with 79 seconds
remaining, and Bill Laimbeer put
Detroit in front for keeps after Lonnie
Shelton scored for Seattle.
"ISIAH IS really beginning to lead
this team," said Piston ,head coach,
Scotty Robertson. "I call him my or-
chestra. He controls the high notes and
he plays down the poor ones. This is a
young team and he's doing a great job."
Tripucka connected with 22 seconds
left, and Thomas's two free throws with
nine seconds remaining ensured a
Detroit victory following a last-ditch
basket by Seattle's James Donaldson.
The triumph was the fourth in a row
and sixth in the last nine games for the

Pistons, 31-35, as they battle to make,
the NBA playoffs. The Sonics, 42-23,
have won only two of five games on
their current seven-game road trip.
IN THE third period, Terry Tyler ex-
cited the crowd with two consecutive
slam dunks on offensive rebounds.
"For any other 6-7 forward," Robertson
said, "those two dunks would have been
phenominal, but not for Terry. That
was just vintage Terry. He really
ignited us when we needed it."
Seattle had battled back from an
eight-point deficit entering the final
period on the hot shooting of guard Gus
Williams, who scored 10 of his 33 points
over an eight-minute span, while
Detroit went cold and made only two of
15 shots from the field.
The Pistons had led by as many as 11
points, 46-35, in the second period
before taking a 67-64'advantage at the
half.
Tripucka, who has averaged 30.9
points in the last seven games, topped
the Pistons with 23 points, while

Thomas had 19 and Laimbeer added 17
among six Detroit players in double
figures.

PRE-INVENTORY
,o e,

Beginning March 15th, the Ann Arbor Transportation Authority
will begin operating a late night shared-ride taxi service, Night
Ride, in conjunction with the Veterans Cab Company. This
service, which is being funded by a demonstration grant from
the Urban Mass Transportation Administration, will provide low
cost, door-to-door transportation between the hours of 11:00 pm
and 6:00 am, seven nights a week. Night Ride will complement
AATA's fixed route service and evening General Public Dial-A-
Ride to provide virtually "round-the-clock", low cost public
transportation within the city of Ann Arbor.
How will Night Ride work?
Night Ride service will be available on a demand basis to the
general public. Trips must have both their origin and destination
within the city of Ann Arbor. Transportation will be provided
by specially marked Veterans cabs displaying the AATA Night
Ride insignia. Passengers will receive door-to-door service and will
pay at fixed fare of $1.50, regardless of the distance traveled
within the'city limits. Because Night Ride will be operated as a
shared ride service, the cab may pick up more than one passenger
along its ride before dropping off each person at his or her
destination.
How to arrange for a trip on Night Ride.
All Night Ride trips must be made by phone reservation only.
Passengers will not be able to flag down Night Ride vehicles as
they do taxis. Arrangements for Night Ride can be made on a
call-in basis for up to twenty-four hours in advance by calling the
special Night Ride service phone number - 663-3888. Pick-ups
will not start before 11:00 pm and no orders will be taken after
5:30 am.
When making a reservation, give the dispatcher the following
information: your present location, destination, and the time
when you would like to arrive. The dispatcher will then be able

The Blues sealed the victory on goals
by Keri Eloranta, Blake Dunlop and
Brian Sutter in the first 5:22 of the third
period. Jody Gage scored Detroit's only
goal of the final period.
Detroit took a 1-0 lead on Mike
Blaisdell's power-play goal at 2:10 of
the first period, but St. Louis countered
with goals by Babych and Joe Mullen 31
seconds apart late in the period to lead
2-1.
Mullen's goal was his 20th, making
him the first player to score 20 goals in
the NHL and a minor league in the
same season. He had 21 goals with Salt
Lake City of the Central Hockey League
before being called up by St. Louis on
Dec. 30.
Jorgen Pettersson boosted the Blues'
lead to 3-1 at 14:10 of the second period,
but Blaisdell notched his second of the
game at 15:42 to cut the St. Louis lead to
a single goal.

nament will be held this Sunday 6-10
