Behind the Big Unit,
Aizona takes 2-0 lead

ATHLETE OF THE WEEK

GAXNE Two
ARIZONA 4, Nxw Your (0
PHOENIX (AP) - Randy John-
son shut down the New York Yankees
with pitching that was close to per-
fect, and moved his Arizona Dia-
mondbacks a game closer to their
first World Series championship.
Johnson picked up where Curt
Schilling left off, overpowering the
Yankees with a three-hitter for a 4-0
win Sunday night that gave Arizona a
2-0 lead.
The three-time defending champi-
on Yankees left Arizona reeling, held
to just six hits in two games.
Pitching for the first time in the
World Series, Johnson put on per-
haps his finest performance in strik-
ing out 11. And this from a
three-time Cy Young winner, a strike-
out ace with a no-hitter to his credit.
The Diamondbacks had banked

on their 1-2 punch of Schilling and
Johnson putting them ahead at Bank
One Ballpark. Probably no one,
however, imagined they would
make the Yankees look so over-
matched.
Now, New York must count on a
return to Yankee Stadium to close the
gap. The next matchup is in the Yan-
kees' favor --Brian Anderson, shaky
all season, starts for Arizona against
20-game winner Roger Clemens in
Game 3 tomorrow night.
The Yankees rallied from an 0-2
deficit in the 1996 World Series
against the Atlanta Braves and ral-
lied to win in six games, the first of
their five championships in the last
six years.
Johnson's only jam came in the
eighth when Shane Spencer and Alfon-
so Soriano started with singles. But
Johnson got a complaining Scott Bro-
siusv to look at a 97-mph fastball for
strike three and escaped when pinch-
hitter Luis Sojo grounded into a double
play.

Wolverines' -depth evident at Rolex Regionals

NATIONAL CONFERENCE

By Melanie Kebler
Daily Sports Writer
Tough competition brings out the
best in athletes, and the Michigan
men's tennis team certainly abided
by that principle last weekend at the
Rolex Regional Championships in
East Lansing. In a field of 96, three
Michigan singles players made it to
the round of 16..Two players, senior
Ben Cox and freshman Matt Lockin,
pulled upsets of the No. 6 and No. 5
seeds, respectively. Against the top
players from the Big Ten and around
the Midwest, the Wolverines showed
determination and potential to
agcomplish great things this season.
"From what I've seen, we've got a
reasonable amount of depth,"
Michigan assistant coach Dan Gold-
berg said. "We've got potential to be
one of the top teams in the Big Ten
this year."
Michigan entered five singles
players in the tournament and two
doubles teams. The doubles team of
Chris Shaya and Chris Rolf won its
first match but lost to the No. 9 Pur-
due team 6-8. Lockin and Greg
Novak lost 6-8 to Iowa's top doubles
team. The team fared better on the
singles side of the tournament, with
three players advancing to the round
of 16.
Henry Beam - seeded 12th in
the tournament - won his first two

matches but lost to Minnesota's
Harsh Mankad 4-6, 2-6. Mankad is
Minnesota's No. 1 player and has
played on the Davis Cup team for
India.
"He played really well," Beam
said. "I beat him a couple times last
year so this time he really wanted to
beat me."
The senior said he didn't play as
well as he did at the end of last year,
but praised the team's overall per-
formance, saying he was "very
impressed."
"This team reminds me of when
Ben and I were freshman," he said.
"They have the same determina-
tion."
Beam's teammate and fellow sen-
ior Cox turned in a strong perform-
ance, knocking off No. 6 Jevgenij
Cariov 6-2, 7-6 (5) in the second
round. Cox then defeated Jamie
Sahara of Northwestern before los-
ing to No. 13 Javier Taborga of
Notre Dame 1-6, 4-6.
"I hope this can be a springboard
for Ben to have confidence and
know that he can match up with
anyone in the country," Goldberg
said. "He had an excellent tourna-
ment. I think Henry and Ben cer-
tainly established themselves as top
players both on the team and in the
Big Ten."
The freshman Lockin also made a
statement this weekend, posting a 3-

I record. Lockin defeated Petar
Mandi of Iowa in the first round and
then, upset No. 5 Casey Smith of
Notre Dame, 7-6 (4), 6-4. He then
went on to win his next match
before falling 3-6, 3-6 to defending
Rolex Regional champion, Tom
Hanus of Northwestern.
"There is a tremendous amount of
depth at this tournament," Goldberg
said. "Fifteen or 20 of the players
that started this tournament had a
chance of winning it all. To get
three players through to the round
of 16 was a pretty good showing for
us."
As the fall season progresses, the
team continues to assess individual
players and start deciding what the
lineups will look like this spring.
Last year Beam played No. 1 for
Michigan and he is likely to play at
that position again this year, but the
rest of the lineup remains up in the
air. The Wolverines will use the rest
of the fall season to help decide
'M ' i'u il.'J L

how they will fill out the second
through eighth positions.
"Fall is the individual part of the
season. Mostly we look to see how
players do against outside competi-
tors, but we do look at day to day
practice situations as well," Gold-
berg said.
Overall, expectations are high for
the upcoming spring season, which
starts in January. The Wolverines
got a good look at strong Big Ten
teams like Illinois, Ohio State, and
Minnesota. When asked if he
thought Michigan could be one of
the top teams in the Big Ten this
year, Beam replied, "easily."
"We've got a lot of heart this
year and a lot of spunk," Beam said.
"It should be fun."
The men's tennis team will head
to Ohio next weekend for the Toledo
Rocket Invitational. The Wolverines
will finish their fall season at the
Big Ten Singles Championships in
East Lansing on Nov. 10-12.

Terrell and Thomas
key Bears win again
CHICAGO (AP) - Almost five
minutes after the game was over, the
Chicago Bears were still on their
feet, cheering. Mike Brown held the
ball in the air and pointed at the
crowd.
After a victor'y like this, a little
extra celebration was in order.
Brown's 33-yard interception
return in overtime capped a wild
game yesterday and gave Chicago a
37-31 win over the San Francisco
49ers in the shortest extra period in
NFL history.
"This," Brown said, "is unbeliev-
able."
Yes, it was. Trailing 28-9, the
Bears rallied behind rookie David
Terrell's two touchdown catches in
the fourth quarter and Michigan
teammate Anthony Thomas' run for
a 2-point conversion to tie the game.
Then, on the first play of overtime,
Brown picked off a pass intended
for Terrell Owens and returned it for
the game-winning score.
Thomas finished with 127 yards,
his second 100-yard game in a row.
Isenhour diagnosed
with leukemia
ATLANTA (AP) - Georgia Tech
senior forward Michael Isenhour has
been diagnosed with acute lym-
phomic leukemia and is out indefi-
nitely.
The 6-foot-8 Isenhour was expect-
ed to be a major contributor for the
Yellow Jackets this season. He
learned of his condition Tuesday.

"We were all shocked," coach Paul
Hewitt said. "It came out of nowhere
for all of us. The best thing we can
do is pray and support him as best
we can."
After transferring from Air Force
after his freshman year, Isenhour saw
little action with Georgia Tech, startin
only one game last season. But he was
expected to play a bigger role this sea-
son as one of only two players on the
roster taller than 6-foot-7.
Insenhour also had'been bothered
by a recurring nerve problem in his
right leg that required two opera-
tions, most recently on Oct. 4: That
problem was not related to the
leukemia, team physician Angelo
Galante said.
Lemieux to have sur-0
gery on hip today
PITTSBURGH (AP) - Mario
Lemieux, bothered since training camp
by a sore hip, will have surgery today
that Nvill sideline him for up to a
month.
Lemieux will have arthroscopic sur-
gery that will remove long-term wear
and tear damage to his hip, accumulat-_
ed from many years of playing hockey,
the Pittsburgh Penguins announced
yesterday.
"Nobody really knew what was
going to happen, but this kept coming
back and coming back," general man-
ager Craig Patrick said. "You thought
he was getting better, and he wasn't.
"You can't go all year long like that.
You've got to get it fixed."
The star forward, who is also the
owner of the Penguins, is expected t4
miss three or four weeks because of
the injury that first flared up during an
exhibition game on Sept. 22.
He failed to respond to therapy and
strengthening treatment, and recent
tests revealed evidence of torn carti-
lage and a small bone fragment.
Lemieux missed last night's game
against Florida after being limited to
6.5 minutes the night before against
Toronto. After Saturday's 4-0 loss,
Lemieux said he probably needed to
stay out until his hip muscle gets bet-
ter.
