Hawks Have Advantage
To Even Cup Playoffs

WSU Ball Game Opens Season


CHICAGO W) - The Stanley
Cup Hockey Playoffs are proving
there is no place like home, and
the Chicago Black Hawks were
preparing themselves mentally
yesterday to follow this theme.
After blanking the Toronto Ma-
ple Leafs 3-0 Sunday night in
the Chicago Stadium, the Hawks
are thinking in terms of another
home victory tonight to square the
best-of-seven final series at 2-2.
Toronto took the first two games
in its bailiwick, just as the Cana-'

diens did against the Hawks in
the opening two matches of the
semifinals in Montreal. Chicago

tour. Michigan bested Arizona
State in four games out of seven
although the State nine, which
had already played over 20 games,
was rated among the nation's top
15 college teams a week earlier.
Arizona Tough
Arizona was the scourge. The
powerful Wildcats, with only two
losses and 17 wins, swept three in
a row from the Wolverines to keep
their number seven national rank-
ing secure and run their victory
total to 20.
Ace pitcher Dan Schneider
boosted his record to 7-0 with an
opening 2-1 victory over Michi-
gan's Fritz Fisher. An unearned
run in the tenth inning was the
margin which beat the Wolverines.
The loss was a heartbreaker for
Fisher, who had struck out 16 bat-
ters while walking only four in his
first starting assignment to open
the 1962 seasona on April 6.
Too Many Walks
Fisher's opening day perform-
ance was the only bright spot for
the Wolverine moundsmen. Ari-
zona came back to sweep the next
day's doubleheader, 9-3 and 6-2.
The Wolverine hurlers couldn't
get the ball across and walked so
many batters that Michigan gave
the game away on free passes.

at three wins each in the first

ing. The team will have speed this

Wolverines did not hesitate to
steal bases on the tour. Outfielders
Ron Tate and Dennis Spalla were
the leading hitters on the tour
while Harvey Chapman did a fine
job of filling in for injured in-
fielder Dave Campbell.
Chapman was also the fielding
standout in the final game. In a
clutch situation he started a
double play by fielding a bounder
down the first base line. He fired
to the shortstop covering second,
who threw to the pitcher at first
for an unusual 3-6-1 double play.
Chapman also leaped against the
fence near first to catch a high
pop fly and made two fine putouts
on deep liners.
