by upsetting Purdue, 35 to 30, in

half but in the second period, the
Wildcats, led by Gleichmann, who
caged six field goals and a free

Feb,. 16.-Held to a single field goal and four free throws for the
first half, Michigan rallied in the second session to defeat Minne-
sota here tonight, 23 to 18.
The Wolverines on the short end of a 9 to 6 score as the first
period ended, came back with the lanky Chapman leading the way
to outpoint the Gophers and ring up their sixth victory while Min-
nesota was losing her sixth.
- Tight defensive play by both teams marked the contest as a
biterly fought affair with the more. accurate shooting of Michigan
being the important factor in the outcome. While the teamwork of'
the Gophers surpassed that of the
visitors, Minnesota could not
match long shots with Michigan
and so found themselves at theend
