By LARRY MISHKIN
If Michigan men's tennis coach Brian
Eisner ever had any doubts about any
of his players, they were all erased
sterday as the Wolverines put
ether a group of fine individual per-
ormances in an exciting, but decisive,
B-1 victory over Illinois at the Liberty
Racquet Club.
From first singles to third doubles the
Wolverines all played fine tennis again-
st a tough Illini squad.

MICHAEL LEACH played his usual
outstanding tennis as he handily
defeated Tom Henderson 6-0, 7-6 (7-2).
Despite the fact that he was not feeling
well, Leach breezed through the first
set and then hung on to win the second
set.
"In the first set I was happy with my
play," he said. "In the second set
though, I got softer mentally and stop-
ped attacking, letting him (Henderson)
play his way into the match. He got his
confidence back and really started

e, u u
playing well. I just hung on and won. I
was happy to close it out so it didn't
have to go to a third set."
Leach found himself behind early in
the second set but mixed his shot selec-
tion enough to keep Henderson off
balance and come back with the vic-
tory.
"WHEN YOU lose the first game of a
set you hope your momentum won't
slip," he said. "It's kind of a panic
situation and you have to get control No
one likes to win the first set 6-0 because
it's a fluke, it's too easy. I outclassed
him in the first set and then he almost
beat me in the second and that
shouldn't happen in the same match."
Mark Mees fell behind in both of his
second singles sets but came back both
times as he defeated Scott Sommers,
6-3,6-3.
"I started out slow, making a few
more errors than I normally make,"
said Mees. "I finally started hitting my
shots and got relaxed and then I took
charge."
. IN THE SECOND set, Mees found
himself a service break down, but
playing mainly from the baseline, he
outdueled Sommers and brought home
the victory.
"He (Sommers) is not a flashy
player, but is very good. I had to beat
him because he would not beat himself.
My volleying is getting better, but
backcourt is still my strength. I just
have to get some confidence with my
volleying. I just have to keep plugging
away."
Tom Haney had one of the closer
matches of the day as he beat Adam
Ambielli in straight sets 7-6, (8-6), 7-6
(7-2). The second tiebreaker, however,
was not as close as the score indicates
as Haney jumped of to a lead and held
on to it for the win.
"I WAS REALLY happy with the way
I played today," said Haney. "We have
similar styles and it was a real pressure
game. I needed god shots to win and I
came through with them when it coun-
ted. It was a good match."
The Illini picked up their lone win of

the day at fourth singles as Neil Adams
held off Ross Laser in a close three-set
affair, 3-6, 7-6 (8-6), 6-4. Laser had a
chance to win as he was serving for the
match in the second set, but Adams
came up with some nice shots and was
able to break service. The third set was
also close but Adams held onto his ser-
ve and pulled out the win.
In the other two singles matches, Ihor
Debryn defeated Jack Conlan 6-4, 6-4
and Bill Godfrey beat Todd Black 6-2, 6-
2.
EISNER ALTERED his doubles
teams, having the number two team of
Haney and Debryn play number one,
the number three team of Godfrey and
Rodd Schreiber play number two and
the number one team of Mees and
Laser (filling in for Leach) play num-
ber three.
The strategy worked as all three
doubles teams came up winners, drop-
ping only one set among the Jhree of
them.
"We played good doubles today,"
said Eisner. "Our doubles are as good
as anyone in the nation."
HANEY AND Debryn had no trouble
in easily defeating Henderson and
Sommers 6-1, 6-4. The only question
going into the match was whether or not
Haney would be tired after his close
singles match.
"I always get fired up for doubles,"
said Haney. "We call it going animal. I
play my best tennis in doubles and
always get psyched. After a good
singles match I really feel good about
going out and playing again."
Godfrey and Schreiber took a little bit
longer to dispose of their opponents,
Adams and Ambielli, as they had to go o
three sets before winning 4-6, 6-1, 6-4.
AFTER A TOUGH first set, Godfrey
and Schrieber easily won the second set
as they overpowered their Illini op-
ponents with their powerful serves and
strong net games.
At the outset of the third set, Adams
and- Ambielli asked for a line judge, but
that didn't help them as they fell to

Godfrey's and Schreiber's superior
play.
"These guys beat as fine a number
two doubles team as there is in the Big
Ten," said Eisner.
Mees and Laser downed Conlan and
Black 6-2, 6-3 in a match that was not
much competition for the two
Wolverines as they used fine net play
and smart shots and won with litle
trouble.
"It was a tremendous match," said
Eisner. "I was even more pleased than

in over Mimi,

81
I usually am because Illinois has eight
players who are all equal and they play
anywhere. Their number five player
today played number one last year and
took (Matt) Horwitch to three sets. I
was concerned that we might have
problems with lower singles. Illinois
could be a real darkhorse team in the
Big Ten and I was concerned abut the
match. Weighing everything, it was a
tremendous win, we played much bet-
ter as a team today and were almost
flawless."

'M' tumblers outmanned in finals

From Staff and AP reports
LINCOLN, Neb. - Despite a fine performance
from Rick Kaufmann on the rings, the Michigan men's.
gymnastics team was never a factor in the NCAA
Men's Gymnastics Championships that concluded
sterday. The Nebraska Cornhuskes broke their
o n national scoring record by seven-tenths of a
point to win a fourth straight NCAA gymnastics team
title.
Nebraska swept every event to score 286.45 points
and become only the second team in NCAA history to
win four consecutive championships. The Huskers'
mark was more than enough to beat second-place
UCLA, led -by all-around champion Peter Vidmar,
and Penn State, which finished third.
KAUFMANN'S score of 9.55 in the rings placed him
ghth and allowed him to become the only Wolverine
iqualify for last night's individual finals. Other

Michigan performances included Milan Stanovich's
9.55, good for ninth place, in the vault; Nevin
Hedlund's 9.3 in the pommel horse; Dave Miller's 8.2
in the parallel bars; and Kevin McKee's 8.8 in the
floor exercise. "He (McKee) missed a litle bit," said
Wolverine coach Newt Loken.
Nebraska swept every event in setting the new
record and was led by defending all-around champion
Jim Hartung. Hartung had won the past two all-
around titles and had been favored to win a third
before Vidmar's upset performance. Leading the
Huskers to another title, however, was more than
enough to ease his disappointment, he said.
"This is the nicest way to go out," the senior from
Omaha said, "because this is the greatest team ever
put together."

THE TEAM title was never in doubt for Nebraska
as the Cornhuskers recorded their best scores collec-
tively in every event. Nebraska Coach Francis Allen
had nothing but praise for the team.
"We had the momentum and the talent. When you
look at all that power put together, it's not hard to un-
derstand why we set another record," Allen said.
"We've won three before, but this one definitely
showcased our best talent."
UCLA coach Art Sherlock, who had said Nebraska
was the best team he had ever seen, reiterated those
feelings yesterday.
"It was an awesome performance. I was proud of
the way we scored, but there was no way we could
match the talent and strength of this Nebraska
team," he said.
