Michigan's cagers, stricken with
lethargy or seme malady of that
nature since the Indiana game more
than a month ago, seemingly devel-
oped a case of "accuratis" last Satur-
day night when they sent basket after
basket through the hoop to bury the
Northwestern five under a 47 to 25
Not since the Indiana game, when
they triumphed over the Hoosiers by
dint of a closing rally, have the Wol-
verines performed so superbly on the
offense as they did against the Wild-
cats. Exactly 19 field goals were reg-
i'stered by the Wolverines, and it made
almost no difference from where they
were shooting. Field goals were
made immediately underneath the
basket, from within the foul circle,
from the sides, and from the far
reaches of'the court.
Bennie Oosterbaan was doubtessly
the greatest force in that Michigan
avalanche which buried the Wildcats
under the veritable landslide of field
goals. The star Maize and Blue for-
ward counted nine times from the
field and thrice from the foul line to
secure a total number of 21 point's
and the scoring honors of the game.
And in order not to make his scor-
ing proclivities monotonous, Bennie
used a variety of methods in register-
ing the nine baskets. His first shot
was an ordinary, conventional shot,
and after that he tipped one in, tossed
another through the iron, one handed,
and lobbed in 'still another one.
Oosterbaan, incidentally, is now en-
trenched in second position among the
leading scorers of the Western Con-
ference, being only three points be-
yond Murphy, the elongated Purdue
string bean. While there has been a
tendency among the leaders in Big
Ten scoring to selfishly boast their
own marks, there has been no persist-
ent or determined efforts on Ooster-
baan's part to play selfishly or to take
as many attempts at the bakset as
he possibly can secure.
The passing of the Wolverines was
probably the best exhibited by them
this year. Passing under or near the

Oklahoma Five Has 17 Straight Wins
In Contrast With Big Ten And
Eastern Cage Leaders
While in the Big Ten there looms
the shadow of an approaching dead-
lock for honors, the Missouri Valley
race has resolved itself into nothing
more or less than the proverbial
"walkaway" now that Oklahoma pos-
sesses an unbroken string of 17 con-
secutive victories.
Led by }the brilliant center star,
Victor Holt, who has already tallied
203 points, there is not even the
mathematical possibility that the
Sooners be overhauled.
Missouri and the Oklahoma Aggies,
however, are continuing to battle it
out foir runnerup laurels, with the
former having a half-game advantage
in the race. Oklahoma Aggies are
credited with 9 wins in 14 starts.

ington trail in the order named.

a situation som-ewhat resembling that

Penn only recently invaded the Big
Green gymnasium to snatch a 30-29
triumph in an overtime encounter.

cidedly in doubt, it is practically con-
ceded that Joey Schaaf, Penn star,

Chances for points in the half mile
were given a setback, when Leonard,
veteran 880 man, was declared ineli-
gible last week. This narrows Michi-
gan's field of experienced half milers
to a single man, Lomont. In addition
to the loss of Leonard, Coach Far-
rell has given up all hopes of using

ion that the Boston sailor should have
