"My biggest strength is probably
my offensive skills - you know,

turned down Central Collegiate
Hockey Association schools Lake
Superior State and Miami of Ohio
to come to Michigan.
"I guess the essence of Stone's
success at this point is that he's got
a knack for scoring goals,"
Berenson said. "He's been able to

Concerns, concerns, concerns.
One would think that men's tennis coach Brian
Eisner would have none going into this weekend's
-way matches against Purdue and Illinois. After beating
the number 25 team in the country last weekend in
.yMinnesota and then defeating Wisconsin the next day,
hat could Eisner worry about?
:; "Purdue and Illinois are very good teams. Purdue has
,a 15-3 record," said Eisner. "We cannot wave our 16-2
'cord in front of either Purdue or Illinois and expect a
victory. We need to be disciplined."
THE BOILERMAKERS are coming off their
iist Big Ten weekend tied with Michigan for the
cnference lead. Last Friday and Saturday, they defeated
Northwestern, 5-4, and Iowa, 8-1, in impressive
Kevin Gregory, a 1986 All-Big Ten selection, is the
leader of the Purdue team. Gregory, the number two
singles player, led Purdue to a fourth-place finish in the
conference last year and is expected to lead the
Boilermakers to the upper half of the Big Ten standings
again this year. Gregory also teams with the number
four singles player Tom Reilly to provide the
Boilermakers with a formidable doubles team.
Another team that could finish in the Big Ten's top
five is Illinois. The Illini, 11-8, are also in first place
in the Big Ten after last weekend's matches. Illinois
joined Purdue in beating up on Northwestern, 8-1, and
Iowa, 7-2, in their first conference competition of the
MARK LONG, a teammate of Gregory on last
year's All-Big Ten team, leads the doubles-oriented
Illinois team. While the Illini do not have a top
nationally ranked singles player, they possess two of
the top 45 doubles teams in the country.
The Wolverines enter this weekend with a 10 match
win streak and a 16-2 record overall, but with little
experience playing outdoors.
"The fact that the weather has been nice lately
means that we will probably play outside," said Eisner.
"We have not been outside enough to feel completely
confident there, and the fact that these are both road
matches does not help either."
The Wolverines will be fully manned as both
number one singles player Ed Nagel and number two
player Dan Goldberg are going to play. Nagel has been
suffering from a virus, while Goldberg's leg that he
injured last weekend against Minnesota has almost

With the loss of high-scoring center
Brad Jones to graduation, the third-
year coach lacks a bonafide goal-
Stone will not approach Jones'
statistics in his first season, but he
should help ease his loss .
"I think he'll make a very good
college player," said Ken Knight,
his head coach with the Falcons.
"The one thing any college team
can always use is a goal-scorer."
"I don't know how much I'll be
playing," Stone said, "but when I
play, hopefully I'll be able to put
some of my offensive skills to
work and help out scoring-wise."

The hockey team's freshmen
class for next season will not have
the impact that last year's 10
newcomers had, but bead coach
Red Berenson expects it to
contribute. Here is a look at
Michigan's 1987 recruits who
have made commitments with
comments from Berenson:
-Don Stone - 5-11, 165-
pound center, Utica
-Mark Sorensen - 6-0, 180-
pound defenseman, Queensville,
Ontario: "He's a rushing
defenseman, but he can also play
defensive hockey better I tlfink
than some freshmen. So we'll
have to wait and see how he
adjusts, but the ability he has in
his skating will make it easier for
him to adjust to college hockey."
-Bill Jaffe - 6-1, 195 pound
right wing, Highland Park, Ill.: "I
think it will take him the better
part of the year to make the
adjustment to this level, but he's
a big, tough kid, and he works
hard, and I think that will help
-Jim Ballantine - 5-11, 170-
pound center-right wing, Union
Lake: "He's a hard-working
centerman. He's good with the
puck. He's a good two-way
hockey player, and I think he'll fit
in well here. He's a good
Michigan type student."

Newfoundland: "He's a big right
