Basketball Squad Prepared For Michigan State Game


5S WIN'.

season Officially Over After
Bust Given Tonight By
Detroit Aluixinae


While the 1928 ' Michigan grid
team will not officially disband un-
til after the annual Grid Bust
which will be tendered the Varsity
squad and coaches Saturday night
at the Hotel Statler in Detroit, the
spectacular Iowa game last Satur-
day rang down the curtain on
what has been. one of the most in-
teresting and unusual, although
not the most profitable seasons ex-
perienced by a Wolverine eleven in
some time.I
Unprofitable both from the per-
centage and scoring standpoints,
the 1928 season has been featured
by an unusual number of hard-
fought and well played games. It
has witnessed the climb of an ad-
mittedly 'green' team imbued with
remarkable fighting qualities from
the very bottom of the heap to a
place that commands the respect
of every other school in the Big
Illini Fall First
The Wolverines 'killed their first
giant' on Nov. 3, when the un-
beaten Illini invaded the new sta-
dium for the first time and were
repulsed after a desperate battle,
3-0. This was the first time that
the Zuppkemen had been defeated
in two years and it remains the
only reverse sustained by the pres-
ent champions during 1928. I
Another high-light of the season
just closed was the colorful Navy
contest in which Michigan gave
another remarkable exhibition of
her fighting qualities by coming
back in the second half to register
a touchdown after an uninterrupt.

down the field to knot the score
at 6-all and thus tie the con-
querors of Penn, and the team that
later handed the powerful Prince-
ton eleven its only setback of the
Iowa Game Upset
But perhaps the greatest
achievement of the 1928 aggrega-
tion was the performance that
closed the season, the defeat of the!
Iowa team which was in line to
win the Cnference title until two'
weeks before the hotly contested'
title race ended.
Considering the facts that the
Conference football teams as a
whole have been much strongerI.
this year year than usual, as is at-
tested by the complexity of the
championship race, and that the
coaching staff was forced to de-
velop an eleven from practically
unexperienced material, the show-
ing 'of the Wolverines has been
commendable indeed.3
Three Regulars At Start 1
With only three 1927 regulars in
the lineup, the Wolves opened the
season with the veteran Ohio Wes-
leyan team after three weeks of
preliminary drill and were defeated
57-7' Director Fielding H. Yost
termed thecBattling Bishops the
mostformidable opponent a Mich-
igan team had ever encountered
in an opener. The Ohioans went
through a very difficult schedule
including Syracuse without a de-
feat until last week when they lost
a 7-6 decision to Wittenberg. 3
Pat Page brought the strongest
combination that Indiana has
boasted in recent years to Ann
Arbor for the first Conference tilt
and the Hoosiers annexed a 6-01
victory over the Wolverines in a
bitterly contested battle.
Wisconsin Defeats Wolves
Wisconsin, a title contender un-
til the final game of the year with
Minnesota, downed Michigan for
the first time in over a score of
years in the closing minute of an
impressive contest to hand the
Wolves their fourth successive de-
feat and thereby establish a record
for straight losses.
The Badgers were the last team

to win at Michigan's expense, how-
ever, and the lasiz four games saw
