MichiganRallies In Final Minutes
Purple's Attempt To Stop
Jake Townsend's Passes
Is First Big Ten Win
(Continued from Page 1)
'in the first half the Wildcats hit ap-
proximately 48 per cent of their
long shots for five baskets out of
the seven that they made In the
second half they cooled off, but still
hit enough to pull ahead to what
seemed to be a winning margin. Al-
together the Purple team made but
four shots in the whole game.
Michigan, on the other hand, was
playing with the top on the basket.
Time and again its long shots re-
fused to drop. But the Wolverines
hit enough of their shots to draw in
the Northwestern defense and open
up Townsend and the backboard.
But it was the sudden injection
of speed into the Varsity offense
that won the ball game. The over-
cautious, sloppy ball that has marked
Michigan's play faded away when the
situation got serious and the Wol-
verines started covering loose balls,
passing sharply, and playing with a
pnch that couldn't be stopped.
Lonborg started Guy Mercer and
Hi Bender, substitute guards, in place
of his regulars, Bob Voigts and Duke
Vance, in hopes that they could give
his squad enough speed to ruri the
big Michigan team into the ground.
But the Wolverines, in top physical
condition, could not be run into the
ground and the strategy proved a
Fred Trenkle opened the scoring
with a basket from the foul circle but
Townsend tossed an assist to Pata-
nelli to even up the score Then
Gee hit a follow-in and McMichaels
made his first basket to tie it up and
hit a free throw to put Northwestern
ahead. Barclay and Trenkle traded
shots and Herm Fishman made two
points from far out on the floor.
Then Bender tied up the score at
8-8 with a foul shot and McMichaels
put the Wildcats back in the lead. At
this point Northwestern began to foul
Townsend, who collected five free
throws in the first half, and the lead
continued to change with the Evan-
ston team ahead, 20 to 16, at the
The lead changed eight times ir
the first period and the score was
tied six times.
Object To Referees
Jake again sunk a hook shot tc
put Northwestern ahead six points at
the opening of the second half.
Townsend assisted Fishman as he
went under and then picked up a
free throw. McMichaels hit anothe
long, Trenkle got loose and weni
under the basket alone and Gene
Smith made a foul shot that was the
result of Gee's fourth personal.
Meanwhile Barclay and Townsend
had each hit another free throw an
Gee had made a long shot to make
the score 30 to 23 for Northwesterr
when the Michigan team suddenl3
got going and fought its way to its
seventh victory of the season
The Varsity made 10 out of 14 fre
throws, while the Wildcats hit nin
