Nesters pulverize

By SCOTT SALOWICH
Championship caliber teams have to be able to
bounce back from defeat and the Michigan's men's
tennis team displayed that quality yesterday in
whipping Purdue 7-2.
The Wolverines, who have won 16 consecutive Big
Ten championships, are not accustomed to matches
like Friday's tough 5-4 loss to Illinois.
"I WAS CONCERNED with how we would react to
losing our first Big Ten match," said coach Brian
Eisner. "But we came back and played together,
which is what Michigan teams have always been able
to do."
Eisner's concern was proven groundless, however,
as his players came out .eager to make up for
Friday's setback.
"I really wanted to play today," said John Royer,
Michigan's number three singles player. "I was
disappointed after yesterday because we should have
won."
ROYER CONVERTED yesterday's
disappointment into today's success as he easily
handled the Boiler's Bill Sheley, 6-3,6-1. "I just came
out and played solid tennis today," he said. "I knew
we had to put the loss behind us and look at it as a

learning expeience."
Wolverine Kurt Lichtman got off to an auspicious
start yesterday with his 4-6, 6-2, 6-4 victory over Carl
Caslid. The match was Lichtman's first in Big Ten
competition and he had to struggle 'to overcome his
nervousness.
"I was very tight," said the sophomore who filled in
for the injured Hugh Kwok at the sixth singles spot.
"I let him get the lead and then realized I had to get
more aggressive to get back into the match. Once I
got going I knew I would win because I was the better
player.
"I'LL DEFINITELY be looser in my next Big Ten
match," the sophomore said. "I'm glad to get this one
behind me."
Michigan's number-one player, Jim Sharton, would
definitely like to put yesterday's performance behind
him. Sharton lost to Purdue's Adam Abele in straight
sets, 5-7, 2-6, and was not able to get on track against
Abele's defensive style.
"He is one of the tougher guys for me to beat
because he returns serves so well," said the Newton,
Mass. native. "I like a power game and rely on my
serves so I have trouble against a good
counterpuncher like him.

Purdue
"BUT I CAN beat him," he added.
Sharton and Abele also squared off at first doubles
and the Boilermakers came out on top once again as
he and Kevin Gregory beat Sharton and Ross Laser,
6-2, 4-6.
Laser fared better than his partner in singles,
beating Gregory 6-3, 6-7, 6-3.
Laser's fellow senior on the squad, Rodd Schreiber
(who also gets "real upset" about losses) came back
to whip Mark Koza 4-6, 6-4, 7-5, at number four, while
Todd Cohen beat Andrew Hocker 6-7, 6-1, 6-4 in fifth
singles.

Special to the Daily
OXFORD, Ohio-Michigan did the
scalping this time as it swept a
d4ubleheader from the Miami Redskins
yesterday, avenging two losses suf-
fered at the hands of the Redskins
during the Wolverines' Texas trip last
month.
Michigan's Bill Shuta (2-0) pitched
seven innings en route to a 9-3 victory in
the first contest. The performance
raised Shuta's career mark to 17-4,
placing him sixth and seventh on the
Wolverine winning percentage and vic-
tory lists, respectively. Outfielder Dan
Disher aided the Michigan cause with a
triple and a home run, and junior Dan
Teresa responded with a three-for-
three outing.
MIAMI SCORED ALL of its runs in
the fourth inning, knotting up the game
at three. But Michigan pulled away
with one run in the fifth inning, three in
the sixth, and a pair in the seventh.
In the second game, an 11-7 win, the
-Wolverines demonstrated their ver-
satility in scoring, much to the
frustration of the Redskins. Michigan
opened the contest with four runs in the
first inning on only one hit, a single
from Mike Watters.
In the sixth inning, Miami walked in
two Blue runs as Michigan came away
with five more tallies, this time on only
two hits.
Michigan freshman Matt Siuda
rapped out a double and a single and
collected four runs-batted-in, while
Casey Close notched the victory, his
second against as many losses this
season.
Michigan evened its record at 8-8.

enough to get past the pesky Bears.
Michigan finished fourth in the nine-

LINDA ALLEN (4-3) was saddled
with the loss, but did pick up a victory
earlier in the day when Michigan
downed New Mexico State, 4-1. Senior
Missy Thomas and freshman Alicia
Seegert led the Blue with three hits and
two hits, respectively.
Michigan also knocked off Stephen F.

SEATTLE (AP)-Michael Graham
and Patrick Ewing took the inside
game away from the "Twin Towers" of
Kentucky and the Wildcats scored only
two points in the first 16 minutes of the
second half as the second-ranked Hoyas
roared into the NCAA basketball
championship game yesterday with a
53-40 victory.
Georgetown's 10th straight victory
and 20th in 21 games put the Big East
powerhouse in the title tomorrow night
against fifth-ranked Houston.
THE HOYAS, down seven points at
halftime, ran off the first 12 points of
the second half to take command en
route to their 33rd victory against three
losses.
Starting in the first half, Georgetown
had a 19-2 lead before Kentucky's Win-
ston Bennett hit a field goal with '10:05
remaining in the game.
But Georgetown kept pouring it on,
taking its biggest lead, 45-31, with 4:16
left. That meant the Hoyas had out-
scored Kentucky 30-4 after trailing 27-
15.
Michael Jackson paced Georgetown
with 12 points and David Wingate had
11. But Graham, a 6-9, 210 pound
freshman who has built a reputation as

an enforcer for the aggressive Hoyas,
and Ewing each scored eight points.
Bowie, who had missed the last two
seasons with a leg stress fracture,
wound up as the Wildcats' top scorer
with 10 points, all but two of them in the
first half. Mel Turpin finished with five
points-all in the first half.
Houston 49, Virginia 47
SEATTLE (AP) - Rickie Winslow's
slam dunk off a missed shot by Akeem
Olajuwon with 45 seconds to play in
overtime yesterday gave Houston a 49-
47 victory over Virginia and sent the
Cougars back into the NCAA basketball
championship game for the second
straight year.
"Akeem The Dream" asserting him-
self in the second half and again in
overtime, grabbed a miss off a Jim
Miller jump shot with 58 'seconds
remaining and the Cougars leading 47-
45.
AT THE other end of the court,
Olajuwon threw up an air ball - but it
came down in Winslow's hands and the
6-foot-8 freshman forward slammed the
ball through the hoop for the two points
that turned out to be the winners.

At the close of the first half and the
start of the second, the Cavaliers ran
off 10 consecutive points to turn a 25-17
deficit into a 27-25 lead.

And, in the closing minutes of
regulation play, after Houston had
strung together nine points for a 41-35
lead, the Cavs reeled off eight of the
next 10 noints.

DETROIT-The Detroit Red Wings

without offense. The playoff-bognd
Wings dropped their last home game of
the regular season to the Chicago Black
Hawks, 4-2, at Joe Louis Arena.
The victory was only the fifth of the
year on the road for the Black Hawks
against 29 losses and a tie.
THE RED WINGS lacked offensive
punch throughout the game, thanks
mostly to the goaltending of Chicago
netminder Murray Bannerman, who
stopped the Wings on four of five
powerplays and held them at bay until
late in the third period. But Bannerman
wasn't their only problem.
"I thought Bannerman played ex-
tremely well," said Detroit coach Nick
Polano. "But on the other hand,' we
weren't able to get a second and third
shot off on him."
Chicago opened things up in the first
period with goals by Black Hawk cap-
tain Darryl Sutter and Tom Lysiak. Al
Secord made it 3-0 for Chicago midway
through the third period and sent many
of the crowd of 16,516 to the exits.
