Women's tennis back in service
By CHUCK JAFFE
The main problem facing Michigan's
women's tennis team this year is a lack
experience. But coach Oliver Owens
eels that lack of match play won't hurt
the women netters as they try to im-
prove on last year's 19-9 record and
fourth place Big Teri finish.
Junior co-captains Jill Hertzman and
Robbie Risdon will lead the squad,
while the rest of the starting line-up will
be stocked with an impressive collec-
tion of sophomores and transfer studen-
"OUR STRENGTHS are probably up
t the top of our lineup, and in our dep-
th," says Owens. "Our weaknesses are
probably at doubles, but that has been
coming along well in practice lately,
and towards the latter part of the
season I think that willbe a strength."
Leading the way at the first singles
position for the Wolverines will be
sophomore All-American and All-Big'
Ten selection Marion Kremer.
Sophomore All-Big Ten selection Mary
Mactaggert follows Kremer at second
singles. Players in the third through fif-
th singles positions will be rotated in the
early part of the season until Owens
sets his lineup.
Karen Milczarski, who played first
singles for Central Michigan last year,
is the leading candidate for the number
three singles position, while co-captain
Hertzman, and sophomore transfer
student Jane Silfen will battle Milczar-
ski for the third, fourth, and fifth
positions. Risdon will see action in the
sixth singles spot.
"I'M ALWAYS trying to build the.
team, and it does appear that the next-
couple of years will be our best years,"
Owens said, "but I'm certainly not
giving up this season. Even though we
have a young team, a lot of our players
have first team experience, so', we
shouldn't have any troubles there."
Kremer and Silfen will combine at
first doubles, while Mactaggert and
Risdon will be in the number two
doubles position. At third doubles,
Juliet Naft will team with either Milc-
zarski or transfer student Marianne
Ring to complete the lineup.
"The team really isn't as young as it
seems," says co-captain Risdon..
"Everyone has had match experience..
I'd look toward going to the Nationals.
The potential is there."
ANOTHER reason that the team
should be strong is that each player is
very supportive of the others. Accor-
ding to second singles player Mary
Mactaggert, this. closeness makes the
entire team stronger.
"We're all very close," Mactaggert
said. "When ever we go away, or are
watching a match we get along really
well. I was surprised last year, because
we're all so different, but it really helps
us in practice, and on the court.
"We can probably be as good as we
want to if we keep working on it," the
Port Huron, Mi. native continued.
"We're really supportive of each other
and we really keep working at it."
The team opens its season today at
Eastern Kentucky, and follows that
with two matches on Saturday. Then it
is back to Ann Arbor, where the
Wolverines will face Northwestern on
"I'm looking to win all three matches
this weekend," Owens said. "But the
big test will be against Northwestern
and Michigan State (April 6). We have
to beat those two teams to have a chan-
Fe at the NCAA Tournament. We're
playing a tough schedule this year, so
the players should get the experience
they need pretty early in the year."

Pistons edge 76'ers
on Tyler jump shot
By JESSE BARKIN
Special to the Daily
PONTIAC- Terry "Tyler hit a tur-
naround 10-foot moon ball with two
seconds left in the game and no time
emaining on the shot clock to boost the
etroit Pistons over the Philadelphia
76'ers, -100-98, yesterday before 21,114
frenzied fans at the Silverdome.
With 27 seconds left the Pistons took
the ball out of bounds with the score tied
at 98-98. Isiah Thomas held 'the ball out
top until 10 seconds were left on the shot
clock, and then the Pistons went into
their offense. After his first two
choices, Kelly Tripucka and John Long,
were covered, Thomas hit Tyler on the.
ft corner of the key for the game win-
r-a shot that he thought would never
"THE BALL was hanging,", said a
jubilent Tyler. "I'm really happy that
thing fell. The play was designed to go
to John Long. We were running the
clock down and I (Thomas) got me the
pass and that's were the credit lies. It
was a great pass."
The 76'ers were in control most of the
game and threatened to put the contest
out of reach as they led 71-56 late in the
third quarter. But the Pistons ran off a
9-2 spurt sparked by a Thomas lay-up
and a crowd-rousing dunk by Tyler to
make the score 73-65. The Pistons took
their first lead in the game, 87-86, with
4:14 left and from then on the two teams
were neck and neck.
Long led the Pistons scoring with 28,
Thomas added 21..Julius Erving led the
scoring for the Sixers with 31.
