By STEVE SCHLUSSEL
The Michigan women's tennis
team continued its assault on the
cellar dwellers of the Big Ten last
weekend by drubbing winless Purdue
and Illinois, 8-1 and 6-3, respec-
tively.
Regardless of the opponent's
record, the wins were crucial, espe-
cially after last week's heartbreaking
loss to Michigan State.

"We needed both of these matches
to be seeded in the top six," said
Michigan head coach Bitsy Ritt.
The top six that coach Ritt refers
to is the seeding in the Big Ten
tournament which takes place at the
end of April. Ritt expects to be in
that top six which would enable the
team to have a chance at a top four,
finish, a far cry from last year's last
place disappointment.
LOWER ECHELON squads
such as Purdue must be dealt with in
order to improve Michigan's ranking.
Saturday, in a duel between last

year's ninth and tenth place teams,
the Wolverines showed their drastic
improvement by steamrolling the
Boilermakers, 8-1.
In what coach Ritt labeled the
"best overall performance of the
year", Tina Basle (6-0, 6-3) led a
singles lineup that coasted to five out
of six victories.
Usually the doubles teams give
Ritt headaches, but against Purdue all
three teams won in straight sets. Na-
talie Butler and Kristin Ashare sub-
stituted at number two and won 7-6,
6-2.
Following Saturday's lambasting
of Purdue, the team travelled to
Champaign for a date with the
Fighting Illini. Using the same po-
tent singles line up, the Wolverines
took five out of six matches but
stumbled in doubles by losing two
out of three, making the match score
6-3.

"The windy conditions got us off
to a slow start," said Ritt. "We were
down in five of six at one time, but
no one panicked."
THE CONFIDENCE paid off
as Tina Basle (4-6, 6-1, 6-0), Stacy
Berg (3-6, 7-6, 6-2), Leslie Mackey
(6-0, 4-6, 6-3), and Anna Schork (6-
1, 3-6, 6-2), all took three sets to
knock off their fiesty foes.
Coach Ritt was especially pleased
with a new found addition to Michi-
gan's arsenal which she discovered
this weekend.
"We saw how much depth that we
actually have," said Ritt. "That will
help us a lot at the end of the sea-
son."
Throughout this turbulent season
the one constant has been number
one singles player Tina Basle. In her
senior year, Basle has pieced together
a career streak. She has won ten con-
secutive singles matches and sixteen

out of her last seventeen. She has
also won ten consecutive doubles
matches with partner Stacy Berg and
fifteen out of sixteen overall.
Golfers shankh
tourn ament
This past weekend the Michigan
golf team participated in the Kepler
Intercollegiate in Columbus, finish-
ing a disappointing 12th out of a 23
team field. The host team, Ohio
State, won, followed by Kent State
and Ball State at the difficult field
and demanding course.
Leading the team was Hersh Patel
(83-80-77-240) followed by Scott
Chipokas (79-82-80-241), Erich
Kuhlman (82-79-84-245), Bob Papp
(77-84-85-246) and Tom Paton (87-

89-84-260).
If each individual continues to
shoot scores of 80, the Wolverines,
according to coach Jim Carras, will
not be as competitive as he would
like them to be in the upcoming
Northern Intercollegiate and Big Ten
Championship.
After accomplishing one of its
goals by finishing in the top half of
last week's Marshall Invitation,
Michigan did not gain any confi-
dence going into the next few tour-
naments.
"We have to keep getting better
week after week," said Carras after
last week's meet. This weekend's
showing does not show any signs of
improvement. If anything, it shows
that the team is slipping."
Next weekend, the team will be
competing in the Spartan Invita-
tional in East Lansing.

Netters seek to ruffle Cardinal feathers

By STEVEN GINNS
Can the Michigan men's tennis
team still win if all the players de-
cided to tie one hand behind their
backs?
Against most teams in this re-
gion, the Wolverines, ranked first in
this region and seventh in the coun-
try, probably could. However, if
they do tie up their hands against the
Ball State Cardinals, tomorrow 2 pm

at Liberty Tennis Complex, it would
be a mistake.
Michigan, currently in first place
in the Big Ten with a 5-0 record,
will take a break from their confer-
ence schedule to take on their MAC
rivals.
The Cardinals, 12-5 overall and 3-
0 in the MAC, are the perennial
power of the Mid American Confer-
ence, ranked third in the Mideast re-

gion. They have won 34 consecutive
conference matches.
The strength of the team lies in
its doubles squads. The all-confer-
ence No. 1 doubles team of Todd
Hershey and Eric Nixon (24-10) is
ranked 12th in the country. Last
year, they qualified for the NCAA
Championships, losing in the first
round.
The No. 2 doubles team, Marty
Reist and Mike Raymond (22-8), and
no. 3 doubles team, Mike Raymond
and Brian De Viriglio (10-7), provide
consistent play.
