MEN S TENNIS
'M' builds confidence after close call against Texas,*
By MATT RUDNITSKY
Daily Sports Writer
Entering its match against
No. 5 Texas, the No. 24 Michi-
gan men's tennis team wasn't
expecting much success.
But after losing a 4-3 nail-
biter to the Longhorns, the
Wolverines are brimming with
confidence and won't go into a
match with low expectations
again - no matter how tough
their future opponents may be.
"I actually didn't think we
were going to come that close,"
senior captain Jason Jung said.
"I mean, obviously you go into
every match thinking you can
win, but I was surprised. It defi-
nitely shows that we're in there
with the best. We'll definitely
have more of a positive approach
this time around, coming in and
facing another top team."
This weekend, Michigan trav-
els to Durham, N.C. to compete
at the ITA Kick-Off Weekend.
It's a four-team tournament,
with the winners advancing to
the ITA National Team Indoors
Championship, held Feb. 18-21
in Seattle, Washington.
Michigan will face No. 14
Duke in the firstround, followed
by either No. 21 Pepperdine or
No. 25 Virginia Tech. The Wol-
verines are the No. 4 seed and
haven't advanced to National
Indoors since the 2008-09 sea-
After the tournament, Mich-
igan will have faced three
top-25 teams in its first four
dual-matches, and the Wolver-
ines better get used to it. Of its 12
non-conference matches, 11 are
against top-50 teams, including
five against top-25 squads.
And in the Big Ten, things
won't get much easier, as Michi-
gan will face perennial powers
No. 4 Ohio State and No. 16 Illi-
If the Wolverines can make it
through their schedule relative-
ly unscathed, or at least without
third-degree burns, they should
be in fine shape for the NCAA
"It's exciting," Michigan
coach Bruce Berque said.
"Because players want to be
tested and they want to be chal-
lenged, and I think you kind of
communicate to them what you
expect from them and what you
think of them with the schedule
you put together.
"I think what we're trying to
communicate to them is that we
are trying to set Michigan up to
of the best programs in much on the court.

the Wolverines can somehow
escape, coming out even stron-

And even if they do struggle,
it shouldn't be a major problem,
"I definitely think (our tough
schedule is) an advantage,"
Berque said. "Especially in ten-
nis, where qualifying for (the
NCAA) Tournament is really
based on the number of quality
wins you have. If you take a few
losses along the way, it doesn't
really hurt you.
"The only way it can really
