So far this season the Wolver-
ines have shown consistent im-
provement. After getting off to a
slow start against Indiana, Mich-
igan came on strong, besting a
well-stocked Illinois team 190.825-'
1907 in Champaign.
The 190.825 mark represents the
second highest team score in the
nation this year. Southern Illinois
holds the number one spot with
190.9 in beating Michigan State
by seven-tenths of a point. The
Wolverines in a mid-week match
at Ann Arbor, have also bested
Minnesota and Ohio State.
Illinois, considered a pre-season
favorite by Loken, seems to be,
out of the title picture, already l
losing twice to Michigan and Iowa.
