NU men’s tennis to battle best,
worst in Big Eight this weekend
By Jeff Singer
Staff Reporter
It’s going to be a weekend of ex
tremes for the Nebraska men’s tennis
The Comhuskers will play Kan
sas, the Big Eight’s lop team, in
Lawrence, Kan., on Sunday . Nebraska
will then travel to Columbia, Mo., on
Monday to play Missouri, one of the
worst teams in the league.
In Sunday’s match, Nebraska will
be trying to avenge an earlier loss to
the Jay hawks, whoarc ranked 22nd in
the nation and arc 4-0 in league play.
The Huskers lost to Kansas 5-1 in the
ITCA Regional Team Tournament
last November in Dcs Moines, Iowa.
Nebraska’s No. 1 singles and
doubles player Joseph Kahmc said
the Huskers were capable of surpris
ing the conference leaders.
“I really think we can puli the
upset as long as everybody wants it,”
Rahme said, ‘if Kansas is resting on
their laurels and our guys arc more
hungry, we can beat them.”
The Huskers are 1 -3 in conference
play and 7-10 overall following last
weekend’s losses to Oklahoma Slate
and Oklahoma, in which Nebraska
was beaten 8-1 and 9-0, respectively.
NcbraskacoachKerry McDermott
said his team needed some success
this weekend to help its confidence.
“After you’ve lost three matches
in a row, you’re anxious to get a win
in the score book,” McDermott said.
The Huskers arc almost guaran
teed a win against their opponents on
Monday. The Tigers have not won a
Big Eight match since their program
was reinstated in 1986, and have
consequently lost every conference
match 9-0 since that lime.
McDermott said his team would
be successful against Missouri as long
as none of the Huskers were overly
“If we play up to our ability, we
should beat them 9-0, no questions
asked,” McDermott said. “But the
kids in their program arc getting tired
of losing, and upsets happen when
you overlook teams.”
Rahmc agreed with his coach.
“Upsets happen when you lake a
match too lightly,” Rahmc said. “But
we’re belter at each position and should
beat them 9-0.”

two teams — Kansas Stale and Kan
Nebraska will play the Wildcats
Saturday in Manhattan, Kan., and travel
to Lawrence, Kan., Sunday for its
dual with the Jayhawks.
The Huskers will finish their con
ference season on Monday against
Missouri in Columbia, Mo.
If Nebraska makes it through the
weekend undefeated, the Huskers will
be in good shape to make a run for the
Big Eight title at next week’s Big

NU women's tennis player
—-ft -
mann, who plays ai No. 2 singles and
at No. 3 doubles, said Nebraska will
determine its own fate this weekend.
“Before we started the Big Eight
season, our aim was to finish fourth,”
Hachtmann said. “But now we have
the chance to better our expectations.”
The Huskcrs, who are 2-2 in con
fcrcncc play following last weekend’s
5-4 upset over Oklahoma in Nebraska’s
home finale, will be competing in
their only Big Eight matches away
from Lincoln.
Nebraska coach Scott Jacobson said
he is anxious to play the Jayhawks,
who arc undefeated in Big Eight play
and arc ranked 19th nationally.
“Of the three teams we’re going to
play, Kansas is the best,” Jacobson
said. “You’ve always got to look for
ward to these types of challenges.”
Another challenge for the Huskers
this weekend will be their ability to
stay in the hunt for numerous individ
ual Big Eight titles.
Nebraska’s No. 3 singles player
Ann Flannery along with No. 4 player
Rachel Collins arc both 3-1 and the
Irontrunncrs for netting individual
titles. The pair is also in contention
for a title at No. 1 doubles, as they
have earned a 3-1 record against their
conference rivals.
