Illini nail N

By ADAM MARTIN
When you've hauled int16 straight Big Ten cham-
pionships, you don't expect to lose. But the Michigan
men's tennis team learned the hard way yesterday at
Liberty Racquet Club that things don't always turn
out as expected.
The Wolverines succumbed to the Fighting Illini, 5-
4, in an emotion-packed, nip-and-tuck match that
wasn't over until the last ball was served.
MICHIGAN couch Brian Eisner went into the mat-
ch knowing his club would have its hands full against
a much-improved Illinois team, but he wasn't
worried. Eisner was more concerned with how his
own team would perform.
"We knew it would be tough," Eisner commented
after the Illini had nipped Michigan, "but in this
league, it's not who you play, it's how you play."
That's just it.
AT TIMES, the Wolverines looked brilliant in their
first Big Ten defeat, but when crunch time arrived,
they faulted.

splits

with
Miami

Special to the Daily
OXFORD, Ohio - Looking to make
up for the rough treatment it received
from Miami during the spring trip in
Edinburg, Texas, the Michigan
baseball team managed to split a
doubleheader with the Redskins
yesterday.
Michigan lost the first game, 2-1 as
Miami pitcher Scott Arnold struck out
three and allowed only four hits, in-
creasing his record to 3-0. Michigan's
only run was a one-out home run in the
first inning by Wolverine designated
hitter Chuck Froning.
MIAMI TIED the game in the second
inning when Mark Mannering singled,
stole second, and scored on Chris
Maynard's double to left. The Redskins
scored the game winning run on .Ken
Rieman's second homer of the season.
His first also came off of Michigan
during the spring trip.
Hurler Scott Kamieniecki went the

distance, but took the loss for Michigan,
matching Arnold with a four-hitter and
three strikeouts. Two of Arnold's three
wins have come against the
Wolverines.
In the second game, rightfielder Jeff
Minick produced the scoring for

Michigan as he knocked in all five runs
for the Wolverines en route to a 5-2 vic-
tory.
LOSING PITCHER Jim Carnegie (1-
1) gave up only three hits, but walked
11, while Michigan pitcher Gary Wayne
was reached for four hits and struck out
four. The win increases Wayne's record
to 1-1.
Michigan got enough runs to win in
the first inning when Mike Watters, Ken
Hayward, and Rich Bair all walked to
load the bases with one out. Minick
then tripled down the right field line to
empty the bases.
The Wolverines got their insurance
runs in the seventh inning. With two
out, Hayward and Bair again walked,
setting the stage for Minnick who
brought them home with a double to left
field.
Michigan's record now stands at 6-8,
Miami goes to 7-7. The two teams play
another doubleheader today in Oxford.

Fabulous finish.. .
.. give Frieder credit

J,.HE END OF another basketball season.
A good time to clean out the old
notebook and make some final comments. It
was a good year to cover Michigan basketball.
Next year should be even better. Almost
makes me wish I wasn't covering football.
Almost.
* Congratulations are due all the way around,
from Bill Frieder right down to the student
managers. The NIT championship has to be
especially sweet for the Michigan coach. He took
some crap this year (present company included)
about this thing or that thing and still came out a
winner. After the disappointment of not making
the NCAA tournament his team could have en-
tered the NIT with its head down. It didn't. The
Wolverines were hungry right to the end. That
reflects well on Frieder.
* Speaking of criticism, I wonder what a certain
sports writer from The Detroit News is thinking
right now. This guy was simply amazing all year
long. Win or lose his questions to the Michigan
players were the same. "Are you having as much
fun as you did in high school? What do you think of
Frieder? Do you agree with his strategy? What's
wrong with the team?" He was sure Frieder was
completely ruining the players and made it his
sacred duty to save them. He really made an ass
of himself.
Big Ten Favorites?
* Frieder will howl when he hears this one but
you can make Michigan a pre-season co-favorite
to win the Big Ten next year, along with Illinois
and Indiana. Sure the Illini and Hoosiers have vir-
tually everyone back from teams that were better

thap Michigan but with an NIT championship
banner hanging from their arena, the Wolverines
will ,have the experience and confidence to be
serious contenders.
" Despite Michigan's exciting run for the NIT
crown, I still think the tournament will have to
change if it wants to survive. NIT officials better
work some sort of alternative to their present
format.
" Roy Tarpley worked his buns off last summer
to get where he is now. Teammates Leslie
Rockymore and Robert Henderson should take a
cue and do the same this summer or they will be
lost in the pine forest again next year.
" Here's one vote for a new basketball coach -
women's basketball coach, that is. It's time for
Gloria Soluk to go. An 8-46 record over the last
two seasons speaks for itself. Don't be surprised to
see her "promoted" into some other position in the
department.
" Here's one I'll bet you don't know. Where did
Antoine Joubert get the nickname "The Judge"?
Wrong. His older brother gave it to him when they
were young, in honor of an uncle who was likewise
monikered.
Here comes the Judge
" Speaking of Joubert, I'd like you to know there
isn't a nicer guy around. He's always'polite, never
too busy to talk and he always gives you a "Hi"
before an interview and a "Thank you" after. That
smile you see on the court is for real. Somebody
sure brought him up right. The same goes, for Eric
Turner.
* It's very doubtful that Turner will go pro in this
year's NBA draft. Let's face it - he's just not
ready. His play continues to be erratic and he's not
particularly physical. He will have to bear down

and have a great senior year for any team to draft
him in either of the first two rounds. NBA scouts
are much more interested in Illinois' Bruce
Douglas.
Most overrated player in the Big Ten: Pur-
due's Jim Rowinski. The way people were
swooning over this guy you would think he could
move mountains. Sure he had a good year, a great
one considering he's a walk-on. But co-MVP?
Come on. He had one blocked shot for the entire
season, was fifth in the league in rebounding, and
averaged 15 points per game. Purdue's rise to the
top was hard to explain so it became easier to give
all the credit to Rowinski than teamwork and
Boilermaker coach Gene Keady (where the credit
really belongs).
" The Big Ten needs a shot clock - bad. With all
the low-scoring struggles this year I found myself
raising an eyebrow when I saw a 62-60 score. A
shot-clock would hopefully put an end to the won-
derful delay strategies and get some excitement
back into the games. And why stop at a 45-second
clock? Make it 30 seconds.
" Wonder what Quincy Turner's doing these
days?
* Didn't you just want to strangle Notre Dame's
Tim Kempton? That big cry baby made me sick.
He complained on every call, just like former Irish
cagers and current Pistons Kelly Tripucka and
Bill Laimbeer. And one time after he made a
bucket he turned and said something nasty to
Joubert. It feels so good to beat someone like that.
" Pet peeve: Any sports article that makes any
reference to "Where's the beef?" Like all things,
this will (mercifully) pass.
* Sight for sore eyes: Bill Frieder peeking his
head through the basket at the end of the Notre
Dame game.

LAKELAND, Fla. (UPI) - Larry
Herndon's sacrifice fly in the bottom of
the eighth inning started a comeback
for the Tigers as they defeated the
Pittsburgh Pirates 7-6 last night.
The Tigers came tobat in the bottom
of the eighth inning trailing 5-4 but
Pittsburgh relief pitcher Rod Scurry
ran into trouble when he walked Chris
Pittaro and allowed a single to Barbaro
Garbey. Lance Parrish walked to load
the bases and Herndon tied the game
with his sacrifice fly.
However, right fielder Doug Frobel
threw wildly to the plate'to allow
Garbey to score the game's winning
run.

ROD ALLEN singled home Parrish to
offset Pittsburgh's run in the top of the
ninth inning.°
The Tigers were saddled by Pirat(
starter Jose DeLeon. DeLeon allowed
just two hits and struck out eight in his
six innings.
Scurry came in in the seventh inning
and was victimized by the Tigers
comeback.
The Tigers are now 11-15 and have
won 18 consecutive season-ending home
games at Marchant Stadium in its 19-
year history.
The Tigers finished the season at
home by drawing a total of 70,867 in 15
dates, a club record. The previous
record was 69,053 in 1982.
