Michigan Five Loses Three
Games Between Semesters

By DAVE ANDREWS
Michigan's basketball team will
ace Illinois and Purdue this
reekend with two objectives in
nind.
The first will be to snap a five
rame conference losing streak
ad capture its first Big Ten
victory of the campaign, and the
second will be to avenge an 83-63
oss handed them by Purdue at
.afayette on Jan. 30.
Coach Bill Perigo's cagers,
whose hopes for a respectable
showing in the Big Ten the rest
of the season have been improved
by the addition of Bob Brown, the

return to action of Dick' Meyer,
and the return to school of Jon
Hall, will tackle the Illini tomor-
row night and follow with the
Boilermakers on Monday. Both
games will be played at Yost Field
House.
Started at OSU
Brown, a 6'5" forward from
Kalamazoo, joined the team re-
cently and started in last Mon-
day's game at Ohio State. Meyer,
who adds more height to the
lineup with his 6'7" frame, had
been ill and missed the opening
games on the Conference sched-
ule.
Jon Hall, a 6'1" guard from
Havana, 11., was not in school
last semester, and will become eli-
gible for the encounter with Pur-
due on Monday, the first day of
class.
Leading the Illini against the
Wolverines will be a trio of re-
turning veterans, John Wessels,
Govenor Vaughn, and Mannie
Jackson. These three led the Illini
to victories in their first five
games of the season before they
fell to defending NCAA cham-
pions California.
Winning Record
Since that time they have com-
piled a seven won and two lost
record with a three and two rec-
ord in Big Ten action.
Against Purdue the Wolverines
will be faced with the chore bf
stopping the Boilermakers' sopho-
more scoring sensation, Terry
Dischinger. Dischinger, a 6'61/2"
center, has better than a 26-point
average for all games. His top
performance was against Indiana
when he threw in 43 points.
Coach Perigo will probably
start John Tidwell, who leads the
team in scoring, Captain Terry
Miller, Lovell Farris, Meyer, and
Brown against the Illini, while
Hall, who Perigo rates as "a fine
prospect," will probably crack the
starting five against Purdue.
The new men will help fill the
gaps left by Dick Clark and ScottM
Maentz. Clark is recovering from
a serious operation and Maentz
has been ruled academically ineli-
gible.

Michigan's cagers lost three of
four contests during the semester
break and seemingly are well on
the way to becoming the losingest
basketball team in Wolverine his-
tory.
By losing to Minnesota, Purdue
and Ohio State and edging Wash-
ington of St. Louis, the Wolver-
ines dropped their second record
to the 3-12 level. A 6-16 mark,
posted by both the '51-52 and
'52-53 squads, is the all-time low.
Michigan has nine games re-
maining, all in the Big Ten, where
they have yet to win a game in
five starts and are co-holders of
the cellar position.
Lose to Gophers
The Wolverines suffered f'the
first of their three.between semes-
ter losses against Minnesota on
Jan. 15, the Saturday before ex-
ams. Michigan scored only 18
points in the first 20 minutes of
this cold shooting contest to trail
34-18 at the half.,
Action picked up somewhat in
the second half as both teams
scored 40 points to make the final
score 74-58. John Tidwell had
half of Michigan's points in the
second half and finished with a
total of 23, the game's high.
The Wolverines picked up their
lone triumph in this period, a
65-59 decision over Washington
of St. Louis, on Thursday, Jan. 28,
the last day of exams. The cagers
played without forward Scott
Maentz, who became academically'
ineligible by flunking a course.
High man for Michigan was Tid-
well once again, with 30 points.

Following this contest Coach
Bill Perigo's squad took to the
road for what proved to be a
rather rough weekend. Saturday,
Jan. 30, they fell to a powerful
Purdue squad, 83-63. The Boiler-
makers got off to a fast 21-5 lead
and after that the Wolverines
never came close.
Leading Purdue was their soph-
omore sensation, Terry Disch-
inger, who scored 26 points. Tid-
well, however, led both teams with
28.
On Monday, the Wolverines
traveled to the home of one of the
top teams in the country, Ohio
State. Here before a capacity
crowd of 13,497, they came out
on the losing end of a 99-52 score.
The Wolverines were never in the
contest as the Buckeyes sunk an
amazing 14 of their first 16 shots,
to roar to a 29-12 lead.
The Buckeye Blitz was led by
two of the nation's best sopho-
mores, Jerry Lucas with 23 and
Mel Nowell with 19. Lovell Farris
led the game but outclassed Wol-
verines with 17 points.

By TOM WITECKI
Unfortunately for Michigan bas-
ketball fans and fortunately for
Michigan's basketball team, the
Wolverines will play the Buck-
eyes of Ohio State only once this
year.
That once . was last Monday
night in Columbus, when the
Buckeyes blasted the Wolverine
cagers off the floor by a 99-52
margin,
Because the Big Ten schedule
allows the Wolverines to play four
of their nine opponents only once
a season, local fans will be denied
the privilege of seeing one of the
nation's best teams in action.
(The Associated Press rates them
fourth.) But Michigan Coach. Bill
Perigo isn't complaining about
seeing the Buckeyes only once this
year..
One of Best
Said he, "They are really great.
They have one of the best teams
the Big Ten has seen in several
years. I would compare them to
the Indiana teams back in 1952,
and 1953."
The Hoosier teams Perigo re-
ferred to not only won the Big
Ten title, but also went on to win
the NCAA crown both years.
Thiss high praise by Perigo,
but it isn't any higher than the
bouquets tossed at the Buckeyes
by other Big Ten coaches. Min-
nesota Coach Johnny Kundla said
"Ohio State is a tremendous bas-
ketball team, probably the best in
the country."
After watching his Michigan

State team absorb a 111-79 beat-
ing at the hands of the Buckeyes,
Coach Forddy Anderson said,
"They're big, they're good, and
they're deep."' Not many basket-
ball teams have all these qualities,
but the Buckeyes do.
Lack Experience
Perhaps the Buckeye's only
weak point is the lack of experi-
ence in their starting lineup,
which contains three sophomores,
a junior and a senior. It certainly
didn't show up against the Wol-
verines, but it may appear when
Ohio State takes on some real
rough teams, such as the ones
they will meet along the NCAA
tourney trail.
The Buckeye sophomore start-
ers include the fabulous Jerry
Lucas whose 27 point average
leads the Big Ten. This 6'8" center
is considered a cinch for All-
American honors.
Mel Nowell is not as well known
as Lucas, but his deadly outside
shooting and blinding speed are
essential to the Ohio State at-
tack, The 6'2" guard has been
averaging 14 points a game. 6'5"
John Havlicek's rebounding and
his 11-point average also lend to
the Buckeye attack.
14-Point Average
Backing this youthful trio up is
hot-shooting guard junior Larry
Siegfried, who has a 14-point
average, and a handful of com-
petent seniors. Howard Nourse,
Joe Roberts and Dick Furry, all of
whom are over 6'6".

The present goal of Fred Tay-
lor's squad is to win Ohio State's
first Big Ten basketball crown
since 1950. Since the Buckeyes
have yet to lose a game in con-
ference play and their nearest
competitor has lost twice, chances
seem pretty good.
One thing is certain though,
basketball has won a place in
the heart of football-minded
Columbus. On six different occa-
sions this winter the Buckeyes
have played before home crowds
of 13,000 or more.
