The 500 yard freesty.e was an
event that Michigan had es-

crucial that they take a first

Gord Downie, gamoled in his
strategy and lost a heart break-

after making a gallant charge
for first.

The Wolverine's, however,
were not dead yet. Following
Pat Bauer's victory in the
breaststroke, they were only
a down by five, 58-53, heading into
the last event of the night, the
- 400 yard freestyle relay. Wis-

hopes for a last second victory
by winning in a time of 3:12.1.

A WEEK AGO, ten Spartan
players - all black - walked
out of a team meeting because
of a disagreement with Coach
Gus Ganakas. Ganakas had an-
nounced that he planned to start
6-7 freshman Jeff Tropf at for-
ward against Indiana.
Several Spartans, including
star center Lindsay Hairston,
maintained that Tropf would not
be able to contain Indiana

ior Tom McGill would be a bet-
ter choice.
