Newt Loken's men also took the
first three places in three cate-
gories land wound up one-two-
four in two others.
L-L Come Througs
Michigan's "L" boys, Gil La-
rose and Arno Lascari, amassed
six firsts between them. Lascari
was the champ on sidehorse, high
bar and parallel bars-in the last
event, he successfully defended the
crown he won at Columbus last
year, this time with a 95.5, the
second highest score in the entire
Larose entered yesterday's ac-
tion with the title in the all-
around under his belt, and added
a first place in the longhorse
vault. He also tied teammate Mike
Henderson for the floor exercise
honors, and finished second in all
three contests in which Lascari
was champ. Conversely, Lascari
was runner-up in the all-around
and longhorse, Larose's high spots.
The other Wolverine first was
garnered by Fred Sanders on the
Trampoline, with Gary Erwin
right behind and Johnny Hamil
ton in fourth. Senior Jim Hynds
piled up thirds in the high bar, p-
bars, . and all-around, adding a
sixth on the longhorse. Paul Levy
performed well on the sidehorse
to pick up a fourth.
Three in a Row
Hal Holmes had the highest
score of the meet with a 96.25
to, walk away with the tumbling
title for the third consecutive year.
His 98.5 mark yesterday was one
of his highest totals ever,, and
one judge even gave him a per-
fect 100.
Michigan's Phil Bolton Was run-
ner-up with a 91.5, as a result of
his 94 yesterday, which was equal
to Holmes' total Friday. Hender-
son again had trouble with his
double backflip and his 77 left
him with a rather disappointing
The best-performed event of the
entire meet was the still rings,
where there were draws for both
first and third place. Sharing top
honors were defending champ Dale
Cooper of MSU and the relatively
unknown Jim Hopper of Wiscon-
sin. Cooper had a 96-95 lead going
into the finals, and executed a
nearly-perfect routine only to slip
and fall in his 01 iount to bring
him down' to a 94. Hopper's 95
then enabled him to pull into a
Iowa's Glenn Gailis scored a 93.5
to give him an overall 93.25, which
was good enough to equal Larose
on the rings. Hynds and Lascari
barely qualified, finishing 10th
and ninth, respectively.
Iowa's second place finish was a
distinct improvement over its
fourth of last year. Gailis, besides
his fine showing on the rings, also
was fourth in. the high bar and
tied Minnesota's Dan Fritze for
fifth on the sidehorse. George Hery
was third in the longhorse and
sixth in tumbling for the Hawk-
eyes, and Bill Sayre was fourth
in tumbling to round out the ma-
jor part of their scoring.
Minnesota managed a third-
place finish with a small squad,
and might have done better if
previously undefeated sidehorse
man Ton Arneson had been up
to par. However, Arneson did come
in third, and all-arounders Larry

Gleason and Bill Eibrink accumu-
lated enough points in the middle
places to raise the Gophers from
their sixth place standing in 1962.
State Slips
Michigan State, performing
without the services of Captain
Jerry George, who inexplicably
withdrew himself from the meet,
and Manuel Turchan, who dislo-
cated a shoulder Friday, still end-
ed up fourth, down two notches
from a year ago. Besides Cooper's
contribution, Bob Carman helped
out the Spartans with a fourth on
the p-bars and a fifth on the high
Thanks to Holmes, once-mighty
Illinois was saved from complete
humiliation.,Besides his tumbling
effort, the Illini captain added a
fourth in the vault and a ninth in
floor ex to account for 20 of his
team's 32 counters.

Wisconsin improved consider-
ably from its eighth of last year,
thanks mainly to Hopper's up-
surge and the all-around work of
Jerry Zovne.
Larose was never better in most
of his performances than he was
yesterday. From his opening hand-
stand in the floor ex to his 2%-
spin dismount from the rings, he
performed well enough to take top
honors in any Big Ten meet which
Lascari wasn't in. As it was, La-
rose's scores yesterday were high
enough to reduce the distance be-
tween the scores established by
him and Lascari in Friday's pre-
Tremendous Trio
Although the final scores don't
show it, the Michigan high bar
trio put together a great string of
tallies on that event, with Larose,
Lascari, and Hynds getting 95, 94,

and 94 respectively yesterday. Las-
cari, in the three events he top-
ped, didn't fall under 90 once in
two days of work.
In the floor ex Indiana's Jim
Woodward had knotted Henderson
for first after the preliminaries,
but his 92.5 yesterday wasn't good
enough to top either Henderson or
Larose. Wolverine Barry Spicer
had a very respectable 88.5 for
the meet, but the higher-than-
average scores in the exercise rele-
gated him to the seventh slot.
The meet gave Loken a good
look at some of the competition
he'll see again in the NCAA's in
Pittsburgh in three weeks. But for
the present, he exclaimed, "Won-
derful, wasn't it?" and commend-
ed the team as a whole for its
domination of the tourney, which
climaxed a 6-0 dual meet season
for the Wolverines.


Wolverines End Successful Cage Season

... a blaze of glory

Special To The Daily
MADISON-Showing some long-
awaited finesse, Michigan's Wol-
verines downed Wisconsin yester-
day 82-80 in a fitting climax to
the winningest season in 26 years.
Michigan displayed veteran pol-
ish in staving pff a stretch drive
by the Badgers. By stalling every
chance they had throughout the
last five minutes of the game= and
converting on eight of nine at-
tempts from the charity stripe in
the last six minutes, Michigan
managed to stay in front of the
Badgers throughout the second
Bill Buntin wasted no time in
crowning himself king of Michi-
gan scorers as he made his fourth
and record-cracking point on a
sweeping 11-foot hook shot after
only three minutes in the game
had elapsed. Buntin's 17 points
for the day gave him a total of 534
for the year, 329 of which were in
Big Ten action. Both figures eclipse
the old marks held by John Tid-
well and M. C. Burton respective-
Zone Shocks
Coach Dave Strack shocked Wis-
consin with a zone defense at the
start of the game to the extent
that the Badgers blew 17 of their
first 18 attempts from the floor,
and Michigan jumped off to a 13-
4 lead before Wisconsin's leading
scorer, Ken Siebel, moved into for-
ward and warmed up to hit six
shots in four minutes. His streak
brought the Badgers within three
points, 23-20, with 10:22 to go in
the first half.
Michigan played a speedy first
half, scoring on four of seven
three-on-two and two-on-one
breakaways. John Harris bowed
out of his last game in his third
straight performance of 20 points
or more, collecting 21, including
hitting his first four jump shots.
Cole Stars
Captain Tom Cole played per-
haps his finest half of the year in
the second frame when he led
both teams with 16 points, 19 re-
bounds and five steals. He pulled

practically everything off the
boards in addition to sinking three
jump shots, a lay-up and eight
straight free shots.
Michigan commanded the be-
ginning of the game by virtue of
Harris' jump shots and a variety
of moves by Buntin, and stretched
the lead to 10 at 20-10 before Sie-
bel and Jack Brens of the Badgers
tightened things up. The score
was knotted at 23'apiece when the
visiting Wolves put on a spurt to
lead 29-23. Wisconsin narrowed
the gap with shots by Siebel and
Brens and went ahead 37-26 with
2:56 to go in the half.
The last few minutes of the half
saw vigorous action with the home
team going in front by as much
as three, 41-38, but the Wolverines
coming back to take a 46-45 edge
at intermission on one of Doug
Herner's five long jump shots.
Hit .457 in Half
At halftime, Michigan's leaders
were Harris and Buntin with 13
points each, and six and nine re-
bounds, respectively. Siebel made
16 points and pulled down 11 re-
bounds for the Badgers in the first
20 minutes. Michigan hit at a .457
clip while Wisconsin managed .396.
When the second half opened,
Cole fired up, hitting eight points
in six minutes and putting Michi-
gan on top to stay. They led 63-
53 with 13:22 to go in the game,
and from that point on slowed
down to a pace which would en-
able them to win, not to score a
maximum of points.
Badgers Foul Out
Foul trouble was to play a dom-
inant role in the fall of the Badgers
as their two top scorers, Siebel
and Brens each collected two
quickies in the second half to raise
their totals of four. They both felt
the guillotine strike when Brens
fouled out with 10:22 and Siebel
charged Herner with 6:27 to go.
From their 10-point deficit, the
Badgers were able to cut it to

two at 72-70 on a jumper. by little
Mike O'Melia with 6:09 to go.
Herner hit on a jump shot and
Wisconsin brought the ball down,
trailing by four. Substitute Lon
Ostrom went up for a shot and was
hit by Cole. Ostrom blew both
shots and Michigan brought the
ball back, only to have Big Bill
Buntin get hooked by Mike
O'Melia who by a defensive botch
was guarding the center to whom
he gave up nearly a foot.
'M' Begins Stall
Buntin swished two shots to in-
crease the margin to siv, 76-70;
but Ostrom blindly tipped in one
of Gwyn's misses dropping it back
to four. Michigan then began the
stall with 4:36 to go and didn't
score for over a minute when Cole
went to pick up a pass and got
there at the same time as Pat
Richter. Richter was charged with
blocking and the 6'7' captain scor-
ed his last two points in a Mich-
igan uniform on free throws with
3:17 remaining.
Wisconsin hurriedly fired two
shots before Gwyn hit on a short
jumper with three minutes left.
Herner and Cantrell broke up the
full-court press with the screening
help of Buntin and dribbled in a
weave for 40 secondsbefore calling
time out.
When the teams returned to the
floor, the visiting Wolverines went
into a stall which crushed the
Badgers. Finally in one of the
many frantic efforts, Don Hearden
caught Herner in the neck with
1:26 to go. Herner blithely swish-
ed two free shots again putting
Michigan up by six.
Harris Hits
Buntin came down on Johnson's
attempt at the basket and the 6'5"
junior substitute dropped in both
from the line. Michigan again eas-
ily went through the press and got
the ball into B. J. Harris who drew
a foul from Johnson. Harris' free
throw came high off the rim and
Cole grabbed the loose ball. The
Wolves worked it into high-scorer
Harris who put in a lay-up to
bring it back to six, 82-76 with :41
left on the clock.
Grams threw in a Rayl-type 30-
footer and then the Wolves lost
the ball on a travelling violation
with just seconds to go. Wisconsin
brought the ball down and with
three seconds left, Herner nicked
O'Melia going for the ball. After a
time out, O'Melia missed his free
throw. The ball came off the rim
and Johnson got the rebound by
default, tipping it in as the Strack-
men stood idly by waiting for the
buzzer which sounded just as
Johnson's shot came down.
Only Two Attempts
Bill Buntin took only two shots
in tle second half, being fouled

on both attempts and making only
four free tosses in the final 20
minutes. Buntin was not even
close to bottled up, -but the bet-
ter shots were to be had by Cole
and the guards who stung Wiscon-
sin with three more scores on fast
breaks in the second half.
The officiating, as usual, was
met with extreme disgust of the
7,835 Wisconsin partisans, partio-
ularly when Siebel was condemned
for charging (his third foul) and
reaching in (his fourth), and when
a jump ball was called after a
brief fracus over a rebound pe-
tween Buntin and Ostrom with
3:54 to go in the game.

CHAMPAIGN MP)-Illinois put
down a late Iowa rally for a 73-
69 triumph and earned the Big
Ten berth in the NCAA basketball
championships as Ohio State
dropped an 87-85 decision at In-
diana in overtime yesterday,
Illinois and Ohio State both
finished with 11-3 records to share
the conference championship. The
Illini, however, got the NCAA bid
because Ohio State represented
the conference last year.
Illinois led the Hawkeyes by as
.many as 15 points, 46-31, just be-
fore halftime. Iowa, however, whit-
tled the margin to only one point,
66-65,. with 4:52 left and trailed
only 69-67 with little more than
two minutes to play.
Ohio Loses
The Buckeyes, shooting for their
fourth straight Big Ten title, lost
a 10 point lead late in the last
half and then fell in overtime as
starters Gary Bradds, Doug Mc-
Donald and Dick Reasbeck fouled
Senior Tom Boylard, closing out
his career for the Hoosiers, led
the Indiana surge that finally tied
the game at 79-79 with 6:23 left
in the game, scoring 13 of the 19
points that brought the home team
from a 71-60 deficit.
Bolyard wound up with 29
points, second to Bradds' 32 for
game honors.
