Abos Sanchez, 5-0 at the tournament, has advanced to the final 32. In the first round of the main draw on Tuesday, Abos Sanchez blasted sixth-seeded Eric Jackson of North Carolina State, 6-3,6-1. Today, he faces Cesar Obieta of New Mexico State at 9 a.m., with the winner of the match advancing to the round of 16 on Thursday. The tourna ment's championship match is set for Oct. 15. Abos Sanchez is in familiar ground as he competed at the main draw of the 1998 tourna ment. The tournament, which began on Oct. 6, started with about 250 of the nation's top tennis players from nearly every team in the nation and is now down to just 32. Also faring well for the Huskers was senior Adnan Hadzillac. Hadzillac won three matches in the pre-qualifying session before losing on Monday. Despite going 3-1 and mak ing it to the round of 32, he did not receive a “lucky loser” spot in the main draw, which con sisted of 64 players to start. In doubles action, the duo of Abos Sanchez and junior Lance Mills fell to Vanderbilt’s Eddie Coates and Bobby Reynolds, 8-1 on Tuesday in the main draw round of 32. The next action for the Huskers will be at the TEA Mid American Championships in T\ilsa, Okla. on Oct. 19-23. Life could be a lot worseforNUfans DEFENSE from page 10 And remember one other thing: This offense - the best rush ing offense in the nation - can be NU's best defense. There’s not much reason to believe it will be stopped. nemeniDer isoa s scoring explosion, the second-best best offense in school history (to 1995)1 That team featured statistically the worst defense in school history. Absolute worst Gave up 368 total yards per game. That team was one point away from a national cham pionship. Take your pick, Husker fans: No. 1, being 5-0, improving yel anticipating tough match-ups? Or getting burned by clearly superior teams after coasting through patsies and feeling like crap to start the New Year - no1 because of the booze but because of the Blackshirt defense. No, this isn't 1994, '95, '97 or '99. Not yet But No. 1 ain’t too shabby. Things aren’t that bad right now. We’ll see in a month if they really are.
