'HER WIN OVER IOWA FEATURES BIG TEN O
Results . of the opening basketball
contests oa the 1928 Big Ten cam-
paign, featured by the startling win
of Minnesota over Iowa, one of the'
most favored favorites, dropped the
Michigan quintet from its high posi-
tion in th advanced rating and
stamped Indiana of sufficient calibre
to be entitled to a formidable reputa-
Last night's battles, in which the
- Hawks were given the opportunity to
redeem themselves against Northwest-
ern, conquerors of the Wolverines by
a 2-20 score, and likewise too, in
which the same Michigan team fought
a looming Cardinal squadron at Madi-
son in an effort to refill the dope-
bucket with Michigan hopes, failed to
unravel thi tangle.
Another tit is scheduled for the
strong Purple five for Thursday night
when Chicago plays host to the Wild-
cats. The more important Saturday
nlight card calls for games which
should give at least some indication
of the probable outcome of the race.
Hoosiers To Come Here
On that date the Hoosiers, whose
great defensive work in the opener
against Chicago while themselves al-
most tripling the Maroons' 13 points,
will receive a more severe test in en-
countering the Wolverines at Ann Ar-
bor. Coach Everett Dean's squad, if
it does weather the early campaign-
ing, is commonly expected to crash
when graduation claims Beckner, star
forward, just as last year, when two
of the Crimson stars were lost to the
team through commencement.
Illinois, after throwing a scare into
Purdue, will also return to the court
fioor on Saturday when Iowa whose
power is not as definitely established
as some would have it, receives the
On Saturday, too, the surprising
Gophers will play host to the dimin-
utive Badgers, still without the serv-
ices of one of the most reliable cen-
ters in the Conference, Hotchkiss, who
is suffereng from an infected foot.
Neither Purdue nor Ohio will see
action this week, but the work of the
former squad, performing without
Cummins, last season's leading scorer,
and Wilcox, another great player,
showed the power expected of the
Boilermakers. Murphy, giant center
of the squad, scored 14 points in his
Big Ten debut. Illinois used 10 play-
ers in the game, Purdue failing to
make any substitutions.
Gophers Look Good
Indiana and Minnesota, potential
dark horses, looked good in the open-
ers on Saturday. McCracken, the
Hoosier ceiiter, almost doubled the
combined total of the Chicago team
when he dropped 11 baskets and a
brace of free throws. His feat i-n out-
scoring the opposition was paralleled
by the work of Captain Behr, Wiscon-
sin leader, who tallied six baskets
and two fouls for 14 points, one more
tha. Ohio's total.
Minnesota, with Otterness leading
the floor game,, and with Start and
Nydahl tallying 11 points each, just
managed to 'nip Coach Sam Barry's
Iowans by a 33-32 margin. Outside of
Northwestern and Purdue, Minnesota
was the only team to go through
without a substitution.
- All that may be definitely conclud-
ed about Saturday's contests is sim-
ply that Chicago and Ohio are, so
weak that they are destined for the
cellar. Moreover, all of the other
eight teams are so closely matched
that the race promises to be a great
