No. 4 Virginia (22-8) vs. No. 13
Nicholls State (24-5), 3 p.m.
Cavalier senior forward Junior
Burrough has been to the NCAA Tour-
nament each of the past three seasons.
But he still remembers what it was
like the first time he got there and
knows what it must be like for the
Colonels, who are making their first
ever trip to the tournament.
"We respect them for getting here
and are happy for them," Burrough
said. "But we need to go out and win
And for its part, Nicholls State
isn't happy just getting to the dance.
"It's not only a goal to get here; we
expect to win some games," senior
Gerard King said. "We do have a
talented team and can play with the
best in the country."
Virginia coach Jeff Jones said
that the Colonels are unlike any team
he saw in the Atlantic Coast Confer-
ence, and that their biggest problem
was simply exposure.
"They're-a good ball club," Jones
said. "People don't know about them,
but they're a good team."
For those who don't know about
Nicholls State, here are the facts: It
has five seniors in its starting lineup,
and both King and fellow forward
Reggie Jackson average over 20 points
The Colonels play a running game
and love to press and cause problems
for their opponents.
"We will be making a lot of de-
cisions with the basketball," Jones
said. "We have to make sure we
don't become careless at any one

Iowa State in the conference tourna-

they're not deserving of the No. 1

whether someone likes you or not

to prove themselves comes against a

Patriot League championship with a

Senior guard Tucker Neale leads
Colgate in scoring, averaging 23
points per game, and freshman center
Adonal Foyle is second on the team in
scoring with a 17-point average.

averaging 15.5 points per contest.
Should Maurice Taylor and the Wolverines defeat Western Kentucky, they
may get a look at Kansas, the No. 1 seed in the Midwest Region.

Is a top-20 ranking in the future
for the Michigan men's tennis team?
They certainly have the opportunity
to jump into the poll this weekend at
the Blue/Gray Championships.
The Wolverines (2-1 Big Ten;7-3
overall) ended No. 20 Minnesota's
40-meet Big Ten win streak last Fri-
day in Minneapolis and could face as
many as three top-10 teams this week-
end in Montgomery, Ala.
Michigan opens today against
Texas, putting its five-match win
streak on the line. The Longhorns are
ranked No. 8 by the Intercollegiate
"We played them the last two years
during spring break and they beat us
pretty good," junior Geoff Prentice
said. "They've added two new fresh-
men to their team, so that's the differ-
ence from last season."
If the Wolverines beat Texas, they
will face the winner of Florida and
North Carolina, both top-10 teams.
Third-ranked Mississippi State is also
in the tournament.
Prentice and freshman Arvid
Swan, who comprise the No. 21
doubles team in the country, hope to
snap out of a two-match losing streak
(9- against Minnesota Friday and 8-
2 against Iowa Sunday).
Prentice feels Swan is still getting
his timing back in doubles after a long
absence due to a bad back.
"Arvid was really tight out there.
(The match against Minnesota) was
his first big match (since coming
back)," Prentice said. "Now, I think
he'll be a lot looser when he goes out

Home-court advantage should
make a win easier to come by. How-
ever, playing at the CCkB and the IM
Building this season hasn't produced
the spirit and support that the Michi-
gan men's volleyball team is looking
Since the two recreational build-
ings do not have a large fan capacity,
the turnouts at home games have been
nothing to brag about.
The Wolverines (9-4) hope that
changes when they host Purdue to-
morrow at 7 p.m. This marks the only
time this season that the Wolverines
will play at Cliff Keen Arena.
"We are really excited about hav-
ing the big crowd at Cliff Keen Arena
Friday night," freshman Suresh
Pothirij said. "We are hoping to put
on a show for our fans."
Michigan needs to play with emo-
tion on the court, something it didn't
do in its win over Tri State Saturday.
"The times that we haven't played
well are the times when everybody
looks like they're dead out there,"
Pothirij said. "Whenever we're hav-
ing a good time, we always play our
In the opening two games, the
Wolverines appeared sluggish and
couldn't put together any streaks of
consecutive points. When they be-
came more talkative on the court,
their play improved dramatically.
"Whenever it looks like
everybody's having a fun time, we
are all celebrating," Pothirij said. "We
keep going on runs and we put teams
Pothirij could be amajor factor for
the Wolverines this weekend. He has
played solid lately and will see in-
creased playing time because of an
injury to Dave Hunter, who is out four
to six weeks with a badly sprained left
Recently, Pothirij has provided
the Wolverines with many timely
blocks of the opposing team's top
hitter. That is not all that the 6-foot-
4 inch freshman brings to the court,

more intense," Pothirij said. "I think I
can provide an emotional spark to the

"We had a really good fall, but
that wasn't as much pressure."
At full strength, the doubles
lineup, with juniors Peter Pusztai
and John Costanzo playing first
doubles, Prentice and Swan at sec-
ond and senior Grady Burnett pair-
ing with freshman David Paradzik
at third, is one of the most danger-
ous in the country.
"We have as good adoubles lineup
as anybody," Prentice said.
Although the winner of two of
three doubles matches only gets one
point, that point could prove pivotal
against such tough competition.
It's important to note that the Blue/
Gray Championships will be held
The only matches the Wolverines
have played outdoors in 1995 were
two spring break cake-walks they
played in Hawaii, in which they de-
