Also Honored In Associated
Press S'ections
(By Associated Press)
CHICAGO, March 11.-Michigan
and Wisconsin, co-chanmpions of
Western conference basketball for
1929, also share honors in placing
their hardboard artists on the all-
Conference team as selected for
The Associated Press by coaches,
officials .and experts of the game.
Each placed two. The fifth mem-
.er came from Purdue, the run-
Competition for berths on this
all-star aggregation was just as
close as the long championship
campaign, a campaign replete with
comebacks, thrills, upsets and some
of the finest basketball ever ex-
hibited along the circuit.
Only one member was a unani-
mous choice-Charles "Stretch"
Murphy, Purdue's "string bean"
center and ace of all Big Ten
scorers. It was the second succes-
sive year Murphy was a unanimous]
selection. The others won by a
margin of one or two votes out of
the 20 cast. Four juniors and one
senior compose the first team.
In selecting the team, judges
weighed general offensive and de-
pfensive ability, of which height, de-
;pendability and speed were the'
:main requirements. . Height, espe-
cially, was taken into consideration
,as it was a prerequisite of success
in the 1929 race.
Harold "Bud" Foster, Wisconsin,
was voted the outstanding forward
of the season. Not only did he
score 36 field goals and 23 free
throws to tie for fourth place in
the individual scoring race, but he
was a great defensive player as.

Chicago, has another year to play.(

Chapman provided Michigan's win-E
ning punch. He was able to loop
field goals from every angle and1
during the campaign scored 36E
field goals and 22 free throws for
94 points. His range and speed also]
contributed greatly to Michigan's
great defensive record, and his.I
passing was some of the prettiest'
ever seen at Michigan. Chapman
too, has another year of Big Ten
competition. He comes from Ma.-
rion, Ind., where he used to mate

Within the next six weeks the

the past several years, has proven

is, to stop the "New York Yankees.,

this year as New York appears to
be slightly weaker than usual.
