Displaying a practically unbeat-

a spectacular whirlwind finish to
one of the most successful seasons
ever enjoyed by a Maize and Blue

"Grand Slam'


the holidays, 34-20. immediately
after the Christmas recess two
more eastern fives were soundly
walloped, Penn State by a 32-
11 count and Cornell univer-
sity, 45-13.
Three days after the Cornell
game, the formidable Northwest-
ern team invaded the field house
and fell before the Wolves, 32-20.
Wisconsin was the next victim,
31-23, and this was the only re-
verse sustained by the Badgers
until Monday night's rout. On
the following Saturday, the Veen-
kermen met their third formidable
Conference foe at Iowa City and
again they came out on top, -36-25.
Illini Fall
By scoring their fourth con-
secutive win at the expense of
Coach Ruby's Illini, 21-17, in a
rather slow game, the Wolves com-{
pleted their first semester's sched-
ule with a perfect record. At this
point in the race they shared the
league lead with the Boilermakers.
Ohio State was the team that
renewed the Wolverine cage activ-
ities, but their invasion of the field
house was repulsed, 34-24. The

as a unit is shown by the fact that
the Wolverine defense restricted
their opponents to an average of
21 points per game throughout the
season. Illinois scored the largestl
number of points against Michi-
gan accounting for 27 while Ohio
made 26 and Iowa 25, the rest'
were all less than 25.
Despite the unusually close guard-'
ing of the Wolverine cagers they
have maintained the reputation
established last year when they
won recognition as the cleanest
playing outfit in the Big Ten.
