Men netters clobber Spartans,
By DEBBIE deFRANCES
There were no surprises, no disap-
pointments, no individual stars, and
not a single failure. But the emotions
and teamwork displayed created an
unrivaled presence which lead the
men's tennis team to a 9-0 crushing of
Michigan State yesterday at the
Track and Tennis Building.
In their final home match of the
season, team members rushed on to
the court when senior Hugh Kwok
destroyed MSU's Mike Behnke 6-0, 6-
1, at sixth singles. Kwok's first match
in the Big Ten this season was almost
flawless and he received an emotional
embrace from coach Brian Eisner.
"WHEN I told Hugh he was playing,
he was surprised," said coach Eisner.
"He said, 'you can count on me to be!
ready coach.' I know he's always
ready, that's the type of person Hugh
is, always set to jump in when you
"This win for Hugh today was a
great tribute to him. He's really a
great person . .. just a great person."
Although Kwok does not hit with the
strength of others, his picture perfect
strokes and his excellent placement
led him to not only a victory for the
team, but also a personal one.
"I WANTED it. This was my last
home match and I wanted to go out
with a bang," said the senior from
Montreal. "I had good energy and was
really up for the match. My opponent
was kind of nervous and never and got
his rhythm going."

Aside from Kwok, Michigan's only
other senior, captain Jim Sharton, put
on a show of experienced talent as he
squeaked by Fernando Belmar, 6-2, 7-
6 at second singles. Although Sharton
gave up a 5-4 lead in the second set, he
managed to hang on with his hard-
hitting shots and well-placed serves to
win the match in a tiebreaker.
Michigan's number one player,
freshman Dan Goldberg, continued
his winning Big Ten streak by easily
defeating Michigan State's Paul
Mesaros 6-3, 6-2. Goldberg's unor-
thodox consistent ground strokes have
led him to a phenomenal season and
undefeated record in the Big Ten (7-
ED FILER, the Wolverines' third
singles player, was challenged by
Santiago Cush but won that match 6-4,
"Ed Filer has been playing ten-
tatively and hasn't been serving the
way he should be, lately," said
Eisner. "I indicated to him what
needed to be done and he went out
there and did it today."
John Royer had a winning day as he
approached the net with strong, down
the line shots to win his fourth singles
match against Steve Hooley 6-3, 6-4.
Royer, bothered by a nagging elbow
injury all season, teamed with Chip
McColl to win the first doubles match
6-2, 7-5. Royer and McColl, playing
together for the first time in com-
petition, combined their aggressive
styles of play to form an exciting tai-
THE ONLY three set match of the
day took place at fifth singles as Jon
Morris managed to roll from behind to
take the match frm MSU's Chris
Ignas 4-6, 6-3, 6-1.
At third doubles, Brad Koontz
paired with Michael Pizzutello to take
a match over Ignas and Behnke 6-2, 6-
2. Koontz's strong serve and powerful
forehand combined with Pizzutello's
aggressive net play to make an ex-
citing first effort for the duo.
"I think switching the doubles made
it exciting and fresh," said Eisner.
"Playing doubles is like a marriage
where you are bound to have both
good and bad. You have to work those
problems out or change combinations
Eisner said there was no question in
his mind they would win yesterdag.
"MSU is a floundering team; they're
not very strong," said Eisner. "After
a weekend at Minnesota and Wiscon-
sin, we were very tired emotionally
and physically today, but we hung in
and played tough."

SPORTS OF THE DAILY:
MADISON (AP) - Wisconsin
basketball Coach Steve Yoder will be
reprimanded and his current pay
frozen in 1986-87 under penalties ap-
proved yesterday by Irving Shain,
chancellor of the Big Ten school.
The penalties were levied as a
result of Yoder's apparent knowledge
of a 1982 loan by an athletic booster to
former player Cory Blackwell.
YODER "KNOWINGLY gave false
information to the special in-
vestigator and the Athletic Board
Compliance Committee" on Feb. 4
when he denied knowledge of the loan,
according to an investigation by
Thomas Schneider, a Milwaukee
County deputy district attorney.
The sanctions sent to the National
Collegiate Athletic Association on
Tuesday were recommended last
week by Athletic Director Elroy Hir-
sch and approved by the UW Athletic
They include freezing Yoder's
$53,384 annual salary, a letter of
reprimand and no contract extension
beyond the 1989 expiration date.
THE BADGERS also will forfeit the
22 basketball games won during the
period Blackwell was ineligible to
compete because of the loan, the 1982-
83 and 1983-84 seasons, sports
Information Director Jim Mott said.
Hirsch also recommended Black-
well be stripped of any Big Ten honors
he earned and denied financial aid if
he should request it in the future. The
university said it will request the Big
Ten conference remove Blackwell as
scoring and rebounding champion in
"It is my hope that the NCAA In-
fractions Committee will accept the
director's remedial actions as ap-
propriate, thereby making a hearing
unnecessary," Shain said.
THE NCAA'S Infractions Com.nit-
tee is scheduled to hear the Blackwell
case in June.
Yoder was not in his office Tuesday
and could not be reached for com-
ment, said a woman answering the
teleptone. She refused to give her
The investigation showed that a
$3,114 loan was made in January 1982
to Blackwell by Madison attorney
Donald Eisenberg so Blackwell could
buy a car.
Yoder came to Wisconsin in mid-
April of 1982 from Ball State Univer-
LSU's Williams quits
BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - John
Williams, the 6-foot-8 forward who led
Louisiana State University to the
Final Four last month, announced
yesterday that he is giving up his final
two years of college to enter the
Nationald Basketball Association
As recently as April 2, Williams said
he intended to finish out his career at
LSU and then try to make the United
States Olympic team in 1988.
THE announcement that he is tur-
ning pro came 10 days before the NBA
deadline for college players to an-
nounce that they are coming out
early. The draft is June 17.
"I'm doing today one of the most
painful things I ever did in my life,"
Williams said Monday. "I'm

professional basketball career.
"I am doing it for one reason and
one reason only. I have to help support
my mother and grandmother."

mind or why.
