Win from Purple
Surprise of the
INDIANA AND PURDUE ONLY
UNDEFEATED BIG TEN TEAMS1
Upsets in the Big Ten basketball
race featured the week end games
between the Conference fives. The
biggest surprise was the easy man-
ner in which Michigan disposed of'
Northwestern at Evanston. The Pur-
ple team was touted highly, having
defeated the fast Wisconsin aggrega-
tion, and with the advantage of its
own floor was favored to win or at
least put up a close game.
Mather Rebuilds Team
Mather's reconstructed team with
Dunne at center and LeGalley at
guard won for the Wolverines before
the largest crowd that has ever wit-
nessed a game in Patton gymnasium.
Clever floor work coupled with abili-
ty to hit the basket were the big
factors in Michigan's 30 to 15 vic-
No less surprising was the defeat
of Illinois at the hands of the Badg-
ers by the score of 23 to 18. Wiscon-
sin started the year favored to finish
among the top but since the initial
setback by Northwestern the Wiscon-
sin team has not displayed the speed
credited to it in early reports. Illi-
nois, on the other hand, opened the
season without Carney at center and
with a new coach. Starting the year
with these handicaps the Indian five
handed the highly rated Maroons a
defeat and displayed enough skill to
make them worthy of consideration.
Against Wisconsin, Illinois put up a
close game but could not overcome
Chicago Is Strong
Chicago's defeat of Iowa by a 42 to
12 score justifies the rating given the
Midway five earlier in the year. Voll-
mer, Crisler and' Birkhoff are three of
the cleverest men in the Conference.
Vollmer'sdeadly long shots, Crisler's
guarding and Birkhoff's floor work
and work under the basket make the
Maroon team formidable. Iowa by its
defeat now occupies the cellar posi-
tion with three defeats out of as many
Purdue continued to set its pace
and keep in the 1000 percentage col-
umn by defeating Ohio State 40 to 23.
The Boilermakers have evidently hit
their stride and appear to have a pow-
erful scoring five.
Indiana and Purdue are the only
undefeated teams in the Big Ten. In-
diana by virtue of its four victories
heads the list followed by Purdue.
The question of supremacy will be
settled Friday when the Hoosiers meet
Purdue at Lafayette.
SWIMMERS GO TO
CINCY FOR MEET
It is- with high hopes for victory in
both meets which face them that the
Wolverine swimming team will en-
train on Friday morning for Cincin-
nati, where they will meet the Uni-
versity of Cincinnati that evening and
oppose the Cincy Y. M. C. A. on Sat-
urday, Jan. 28. Despite the fact that
the collegiate team of the Ohio city
pis one of the fastest non-Conference
aggregations in the Middle West
Coach Drulardpis optimistic. The men
will be in the best condition possible
under the circumstances and there is
every probability that Michigan will
emerge from the tank on the long end
of the score in the opening encounter.
On Thursday evening at '7:30 o'clock
the Varsity tank squad, with the ad-
dition of a few freshmen, will per-
form for the benefit of the women's
classes in swimming now being con-
ducted by the Y. M. C. A. There will
be exhibitions of every conceivable
style of swimming and diving and a
big crowd is expected to be on hand.
Physical Director Nelson of the City
Y. expects nearly all members of his
women's classes to turn out.
HOCKEY TEAM LEAES
FOR HOUGHTON GAMES
LACK OF PRACTICE MAKES OUT-
COME OF SERIES
Manager Fletcher and seven mem-
bers of the Michigan informal hockey
team will leave for Houghton at 1:23
o'clock this afternoon, where they
will meet the Michigan College -of
Mines sextet in a two game series
Jan. 27 and 28. Barkell, Hosking,
Cannon, Follis, MacDuff, Kahn, and
Comb are the men who will represent
the University against the up-state
Due to the short time in which the
men have been able to practice for
these games the feeling in the local
camp is one of uncertainty, the
strength of the opposition is an un-
known quantity and even taking into
consideration the game with the De-
troit Rayls last week, the Wolverines
are practically untried this season.
The combination play in last week's
encounter was woefully weak and as
there has been no ice since that game
there has been no opportunity to rem-
edy this fault, the members of the
squad have been doing indoor work
in the gymnasium since the last game
and it is to be expected that their
physical condition, which was the oth-
er outstanding flaw last week, will be
materially improvedwhen they go on
the ice Thursday night.
Practically the same line-up that'
started the Rayl tilt will be used
against the Miners, Barkell at cen-
ter, Hosking and Follis will alternate
at right wing, Cannon at left wing,
Kahn and MacDuff defense and Comb
in the net. This is the strongest com-
bination that Michigan can advance
since the loss of Captain Kerr, ruled
ineligible, from the forward line.
Barkell is expected to do a giant share
of the offensive work from his posi-
tion at center, while Kahn and Mac-
Duff on defense will have their time
well taken up by the opposing for-
wards who are said to be a set of fast
skaters and accurate passers. Comb
will make his second appearance in
the line-up Thursday night.
The folowing men may obtain
their Jersies at the Intramural
office: Crawford, Tynes, Mosh-
er, Walter, Lewis, Moynihan,
