SPORTS IN BRIEF
Michigan close to
inking early-season
football series with
Cal-Berkeley
A future Michigan football series
with Cal-Berkeley has just one
obstacle in its way.
"We've agreed in principle to do
the series," said Athletic Director
lom Goss .
The lone sticking point is a game
in Cal's schedule that the school is
trying to reschedule in order to
play the game with Michigan.
Once Cal's game - beleived to
be against Illinois - is moved
from that date, the two schools will
be able to play each other.
Goss has said that part of the
appeal of a Michigan-Cal series is
the schools' similar academic repu-
tations. Another, more tangible
benefit is the large amount of
Michigan alumni in the Bay Area.
Cal is also precisely the kind of
team Michigan would like to play
in the non-conference season. The
Bears aren't cupcakes, but aren't
exactly last year's Syracuse or
Notre Dame teams, either.
Michigan has large concentra-
tions of alumni on the East coast,
which could lead to future contests
in that area, although no game has
been established.
The last time Michigan played on
the East coast was in 1995, when
the Wolverines played Boston
College.

Lions win first game
of post-Sanders era
SEATTLE (AP) - The Detroit
Lions started the day without Barry
Sanders, then lost Herman Moore
with a sprained left knee early in
the game.
It didn't discourage the Lions,
who got three touchdown passes
from Charlie Batch in the first half
and spoiled Mike Holmgren's
debut in Seattle with a 28-20 victo-
ry over the Seahawks on Sunday.
"Everybody in the world thought
they (the Seahawks) would win the
ball game," Moore said. "I think
it's a shock for everyone. But it
wasn't a shock for us."
Playing for the first time in II
seasons without the retired
Sanders, Detroit also had to play
most of the game without its star
receiver, Moore.
He sprained his left knee in the
first quarter and could not contin-
ue, sn-apping his streak of 107
straight games with a reception.
Moore - expected to be out for
about four weeks, said the NFL is
about to find out about Germane
Crowell, a second-round draft
choice from Virginia in 1998 who
caught two touchdown passes.
"He had a tremendous game,"
Moore said. "FHe's a guy we all had
a lot of confidence in. Right now,
people don't know a lot about him.
But they're about to find out."
Batch threw touchdownpasses of
16 yards and 41 yards to Crowell
and 5 yards to David Sloan in the
second quarter, when the Lions
scored 22 points.
Sanders walked away from the
NFL this summer needing only
1,458 yards too overtake Walter
Payton as the career rushing leader.
The Lions were 5-11 with him

last season and they played as if
they had something to prove in
their opner.
Lions coach Bobby Ross said his
players responded to the challenge
of winning without Sanders and
Moore.
"You've got to play up to your
capabilities," Ross said. "If we do
that, we can be competative."
Batch completed 16 of 26 passes
for 216 yards and threw three
touchdowns with one interception.
Crowell had his first 100-yard
receiving day, catching seven pass-
es for 141 yards and two scores.

NEW YORK (AP) - Andre Agassi
never lost his serve or his nerve, even
when Todd Martin seemed to have him
beat, as he capped one of the greatest
summers in tennis history by capturing
his second U.S. Open.
Agassi came up with his most spec-
tacular shots -- none better than a
lunging return from the court that
broke Martin's serve and spirit -- in a
dominating fifth set to win 6-4, 6-7 (5-
7), 6-7 (2-7), 6-3, 6-2.
Agassi's fifth Grand Slam title
ended a summer run that began with
his surprising surge to the French
Open championship and continued
with his runner-up finish to Pete
Sampras at Wimbledon. No man since
Ivan Lendl in 1986 had gone to three
straight Grand Slam finals in the same
year.
No man had fought back to win the
U.S. Open from a 2-1 deficit in sets
since John Newcombe in 1973, but
that's exactly what Agassi had to do
against an inspired Martin playing one
of the finest matches of his life.
Martin always had all the tools of a
champion -- the big serve, the sweet
groundstrokes, the heart of a fighter --
and he almost became one at age 29.
After losing his first service and the
first set, Martin went toe-to-toe with
Agassi for the next two sets, staying
with him through long rallies and

Agassi is last man
standing in 5-set epi*c,

clubbing him with aces to force a pair
of tiebreakers that he won with unex-
pected ease.
But Agassi, who guaranteed himself
the No. I ranking after beating
Yevgeny Kafelnikov in the semifinals,
responded the way the best player i
the world should.
Agassi bore down on Martin's serve
early in the fourth set and broke him to
change the tenor of the match. On one
point in that game, Agassi alm1st
knocked Martin out, literally, slam-
ming an overhead from point-blank
range that missed Martin's skull by
inches.
Martin never recovered. Though he
ran his ace total to 23 -- 16 more that
Agassi -- he never could find a wayt
break Agassi's serve. When Agassi
broke him again at the end of the
fourth set, the last point on a forehand
return that clipped the net cord and
hopped over to handcuff Martin, the
outcome seeme; certain.
Agassi made it five games in a roW
when he won the first three in the fihal
set, and he closed out the match ' by
breaking Martin one more time.
"I'll tell you what, how can you as#
for anything more than two Amerienm
in the final of the U.S. Open play'g a
great five-set match?" Agassi told the
.crowd after accepting the trophy and
the winner's check for $750,000.
