There wasn't much for Eastern
Michigan sports fans to cheer about
this weekend in Ypsilanti.
The men's basketball team lost to
Pittsburgh in the first round of the
NCAA Midwest regional, and the
women's tennis team was easily de-
feated by Michigan, which won
eight out of nine matches to raise its
record to 9-4.
The Wolverines clinched the
victory early, winning five out of
six singles matches. Still, they were
able to maintain their intensity in
sweeping three tough doubles
"IN THE PAST we've strug-
gled a little bit with doubles," said
Basle. "But this year everything
seems to be coming together for us
and we're playing as a team."
The doubles victories were
important for another reason. The
larger the margin of victory, the
better it is for the team's morale and
confidence. Last year, the Wolver-
ines were barely able to squeak out
close wins over lesser opponents, en
route to a disappointing 11-16 sea-
son and tenth place in the Big Ten.
Number-one seed Tina Basle, an
All-Big Ten selection last year, won
her match against Denise Kaercher in
straight sets, 6-1, 6-0. Basle, who
lost to Kaercher this fall, was happy
to come away with the victory.
"She has an unorthodox style of
play that has given me trouble in the
past," explained Basle. "I knew that I
would have to play at the top of my
game to win the match."
ACCORDING TO Basle the
big differnce between this year's
squad and last year's is attitude.
"Everyone seems to be taking part of
the responsibility upon themselves,"
said Basle. "Each player is concen-
trating on winning their own indi-
vidual match instead of depending on
Talented newcomers like Kristin
Ashare, Stacy Berg and Wendy
Stross have also helped Michigan
get off to a fast start. All three are
experienced United States Tennis
Association players who have held
Basle is optimistic about the
team's chances this season. "We
have the ability to finish as high as
third or fourth in the Big Ten. All of
our national experience should pay
off come tournament time."

After an unsuccessful spring road
trip to Texas, the Michigan baseball
team returns home hoping to im-
prove their 5-5 record when they take
on Grand Valley State in this after-
The highly touted Wolverines,
which were ranked as high as second
in the ESPN baseball poll before
they even played a game, have
dropped to 16th after the less than
inspiring road trip.
"Anytime that you go on a spring
trip, when you go down south,
especially with a lot of expectations
there's a lot of different things that
can happen," said Michigan coach
THE ROAD TRIP was one of
streaks, as Michigan lost five
straight games and has since bounced
back, piecing together a four game
"We started to put it together after
we were 1-5," said Michigan coach
Bud Middaugh. "I think that's a sign
of a good ballclub to come back
from a 1-5 record."
Michigan started off its spring
schedule by beating Miami of Ohio
7-3. The season took a turn for the
worse, however, as the Wolverines
lost to Central Michigan,l1-5, and
then second-ranked Texas, 11-2.
"WE BROKE down defen-
sively," said Middaugh of the Texas
rout, in which the Wolverines com-
mitted six errors.
The woes continued as Michigan
dropped three more games in the
Citrus Tournament to fall to 1-5.
Injuries played a large part in
Michigan's losing streak as starting
shortstop Steve Finken and resevre
infielder Matt Morse were forced to
Greg McMurtry, the starting cen-
terfielder, returned to Ann Arbor for
spring football practice, because he
also starts on the football team.
Chris Gagin, Ed Woolwine, and Jim
Durham, Middaugh's possible re-
placements for centerfield, all went
down with injuries in Texas.
HENCE, the infielders had to
play the outfield and the inexperience
cost the Wolverines. "Finken was
willing to go out there, and it didn't
work out with him," said Middaugh.
"We tried to put Morse (in center-
field) and more balls dropped out
But Woolwine returned, and
Michigan started its winning streak.
Gagin, however, has not returned and
is scheduled for arthroscopic surgery
Tomorrow against Grand Valley
State, Michigan will start their Sul-
livan Award Winner Jim Abbott in
the first game. Because Michigan
had five complete games down in
Texas, Middaugh said he will proba-
bly use a mixture of five or six
pitchers tomorrow to get them some
