NFL selects six more Wolverines

from Staff Reports
After Jarrod Bunch's selection
bX the New York Giants during the
first day of the NFL Draft,
Michigan added six more players to
the professional ranks yesterday.
The New England Patriots
picked running back John Vaughn
with the first pick in the fifth
round. The Patriots began the next
round with another Wolverine, cor-
nerback David Key.
The Dallas Cowboys continued

the Michigan second-day onslaught
by selecting injured safety Tripp
Welborne in the seventh round.
Many people felt he would not be
selected until the last few rounds, if
at all.
The Cowboys went after the
Wolverines' other injured draftee,
running back Tony Boles, in the 11th
round. Both players tore ligaments
in their knees against the Minnesota
Golden Gophers. Welborne was in-

jured in Michigan's second to last
game this year, while Boles sat out
the year in rehabilitation after being
injured as a junior.
The two Cowboy selections
were sandwiched around two offen-
sive lineman. Dean Dingman was
chosen by the Pittsburgh Steelers in
the eighth round, and the Kansas
City Chiefs drafted Tom Dohring a
few selections later in the round.

Jlichigan's Dan Brakus goes for the return against Indiana. The Wolverines had an up-and-down weekend,
defeating Iowa and losing to Minnesota. Their next match will be Wednesday at Michigan State.

Men beat Iowa, fall to Minnesota

by Albert Lin
Daily Sports Writer

A

* The Michigan men's tennis team
got back on the winning track this
weekend with a 6-3 victory over
Iowa Sunday. However, the squad's
road trip was not entirely success-
ful as Minnesota slipped by the
Wolverines, 5-4, Friday.
All but one match against the
Hawkeyes (5-2 in the Big Ten, 18-5
overall) went the minimum two
ets. Michigan came out on top in
ix of eight. The Wolverines (6-2,
11-5) were led by their top two sin-
gles players, who combined for
three points against Iowa's top two
players.
No. 1 seed David Kass (19-9),
ranked 11th nationally, defeated
Klas Bergstrom, 6-4, 6-1, while sec-
ond seed Danny Brakus (19-10)
topped Thomas Adler, 7-6, 6-3. The
*wo also teamed for a victory at
first doubles, defeating the team of
Bergstrom and Adler, 6-3, 6-4.
"That was one of our best over-
all competitions this year,"
Michigan coach Brian Eisner said.
"(The team) went out after the

match. We played solidly, coming
off of two losses. It was really an
excellent effort by the team."
Friday, the 22nd-ranked Golden
Gophers (5-1, 17-5) scored a nip and
tuck victory over Michigan. The
match was not decided until the last
doubles match ended.
Michigan's No. 2 team of John
Karzen and Eric Grand was leading
the Gophers' team of Brian Uihlein
and Adam Krafft in a first set
tiebreaker, 4-1. But the Wolverine
duo let that lead slip away, losing
the first set, and subsequently the
second, to fall, 7-6, 6-4.
The match had been tied after the
singles competition. Michigan used
victories by Brakus, Scott Cuppett
and Mitch Rubenstein to reach the
3-3 tie.
Then, Minnesota's first doubles
team of Kevin Werwie and Anton
Cruz, No. 12 in the country, pum-
melled Kass and Brakus, 6-3, 6-0.
"Minnesota's No. 1 team just
jumped out of the blocks playing
unbelievably," Eisner said. "They
could do no wrong, and we just

never got started. That match im-
mediately was over."
The Wolverines' No. 3 team
fought back to win after dropping
the first set. Cuppett and
Rubenstein defeated the Gopher
tandem of Dominic Rodriguez and
Roger Anderson, 3-6, 6-2, 7-5.
Eisner explained that two fac-
tors worked against Michigan in
Minneapolis. The Gophers host
their matches in two bubbles, each
holding three courts. This obviously
makes it difficult to coach half the
singles lineup.
In addition, a large crowd at-
tended the bubble where the first
three singles matches were played.
This created excess noise and pres-
sure, to which the younger
Wolverine players were not accus-
tomed.
"(These factors) can make a dif-
ference, all things being equal,"
Eisner said. "It's difficult to play
your best tennis, and this was far
from our best, but going into dou-
bles, I was confident we were in a
position to win."
