Michigan Mentor Vewards Champions
With Largest Number Of ")Vs"
In Ils Career As Coach
Awards for Michigan's Western Con-
ference championship basketball team
ee announced yesterday afternoon
by Coach Edwin J. Mather, nine men
being given letters and five others
being designated for AMA's.
The men who will receive the M's
include Captain Eddie Chambers,
Frank Harrigan, Bennie Oosterbaan,
Ernie McCoy and Wilbur Petrie, the
regular five, and also Schroder, Ras-
nick, Truskowski and Frank Kuenzel
who ranked as first string substitutes!

mons, Gawne, Whittk and 'Nyland are

In announcing the letter winners
Coach Mather commented that there
was one particularly notable feature
about this years awards. The first let-
ter ever to be given to a basketball
player for faithful service was given
to Frank Kuenzel, which brought the
number of letters granted to nine, the
largest number that has been given
out during Coach Mather's regime as
Wolverine coach. Last year only seven
Michigan players received their let-
ters. "Frank has been on the squad
for three years," the Skipper remark-
ed," and he'has scarcely missed three
practices during the entire period.
Above all, he has never been guilty of
'crabbing' at work."
This years championship team has
been universally recognized by bas-
ketball officials and critics and no all-
Conference or all-Western selections
has been without the name of one or
two of Mather's men. Harrigan has
been named on practically every team,
the climax coming with his selection
for a forward berth on the all-Western
quintet by Fred Young, well known
official. Oosterbaan, his running mate#
-has been scarcely less recognized, be-
ing unanimous choice on Big Ten
mythical teams. The Oosterbaan-Har-
rigan forward combination was almost
as famous in basketball during the
past season as'the Friedman-Ooster-
baan forward passing combination has
been for two years in football. Be-
cause of the versatility of both play-
ers, some critics have selected one or
