18 games, one more than the 29

has seven games to go, not in-
cluding the playoffs.

Hoosier Hotshot Tops Big Ten Scoring

After battling with Jerry Lucas
nd finally winning the Big Ten
coring championship for the last
wo years, Purdue's Terry Disch-
zger finds himself trailing Indi-
na's Jimmy Rayl this year.
Rayl, a skinny 6'1" junior guard
ho averaged only four points a
ame last year, is now averaging
hefty 31.6 points a game for the
oosiers this year. Included in his
fforts this season was a 56 point

total against Minnesota which
broke the 52 point record former-
ly held by Dischinger.
More Points
Dischinger has scored more
points than Rayl, 232-158, but has
played three more Big Ten games
and has a 29.0 average. The Boil-
maker star is scoring at a 49.3
per cent clip, but has taken only
nine more shots than Rayl despite
the three game advantage. Disch-
inger's real forte is getting fouled
and making 83.8 per cent of the
subsequent foul shots. He has tak-
en 117 foul shots in his eight
games and made 98 of them.
A close third in the scoring race
is Iowa's Don Nelson with 169
points in six games and a 28.2
Lucas Leads
Lucas leads the conference in
two departments, but is a run-
away in both. In seven games he
has hauled in 129 rebounds, 40
more than his closest rival, Disch-
inger, who has played one more
game. Lucas also is shooting, at
a fantastic 69.9 percentage, 9.3
per cent higher than the second
place Nelson.
If Lucas maintains his present
clip he will break the current Big
Ten mark of 65.6 per cent set by

the 1960 Jerry Lucas. If he breaks
this record it would relegate the
1961 Jerry Lucas to third place
on the all-time list.
Another Record
Dischinger is also approaching a
Big Ten record, but it will take
some prolific scoring I in his re-
maining six varsity games to break
it. Dischinger has thus far scored
1,021 in his three year varsity ca-
reer and ranks third behind Paul
Ebert, Ohio State, and Indiana's
Don Schlundt.
Ebert scored only 1,027, so
Dischinger should overtake him in
the next game. Schlundt, however,
scored 1,207 in his three year var-
sity career, but also played four
more games than Dischinger will
Michigan's top listed scorer in
the Big Ten is Tom Cole with 84
points and a 16.8 average in his
five games, which puts him 11th.
John Oosterbaan is tied for 20th
with Ohio State's Mel Nowell with
a 13.6 average.

tified the NCAA Hockey Tourna-
ment Selection Committee yester-
day that it does not wish to be
considered for participation in the
1962 tournament.
However, the Crimson hockey
team will take part in the Eastern

With a 13-4 record, Harvard's
hockey team is ranked among the
