same time the Wolverines worked
under the net on set-up plays and
scored on follow-ins when they
missed their set shots.
In the second half it was a little
different as the Varsity relaxed in
its long lead and Wisconsin began to
hurry the play.
Patanelli Goes Out
Gee and Townsend ran the score
up to 28 to 11 and then Lee Mitchell
drove down the floor for Wisconsin's

Michigan awoke from its lethargy as
Gee hit a pivot and Leo Beebe, in the
game for Patanelli who had retired
with his usual four personals, drop-
ped two long arches thru the netting.
Wisconsin presented just the kind
of opposition that is easiest for thel
Varsity. Unlike Indiana the Badg-
ers had nothing figured out to beat
Michigan. They tried to work under

Illinois Tops Northwestern
Team, 32-26; Minnesota
Whips Chicago
EVANSTON, Ill., March 6.-(.)-
Illinois defeated Northwestern 32 to
26 to tie Minnesota for the Big Ten
title before a crowd of 6,000 tonight.
The Illini set the pace and held the
lead throughout to give Coach Doug
Mills a Conference winner in his first
year and to avenge the defeat handed
them by the Purple at Champaign
early in the season.
Northwestern fought a stubborn
uphill fight and launched rally after
rally only to have Illinois turn on
the speed and pull away.
Illinois whizzed to a one-point lead
in the first five minutes, with Bob
Riegel and Wib Henry leading the
scoring. Jean Smith dribbled in to
give Northwestern its first basket and
to start a rally by the Wildcats which
left them four points behind at 16-12.
Henry and Boudreau connected for
field goals to give the Illini a 20 to 12
margin at half time.
Minnesota Wins, 33-23
CHICAGO, March 6.-(A)-Minne-
sota won a half-share of the 1936-37
Big Ten basketball championship to-
night, coming from behind to defeat
Chicago 33 to 23 in the final game
of the season for both teams.
The victory gave the Gophers a
season's record of 10 victories and
two defeats, the same as compilel by
Illinois, victorious tonight over
Chicago, in taking its 12th defeat
in an many starts this year, made
things interesting for the Minneso-
tans in the first half and at the
intermission point held* a 14 to 13
edge. Seconds after the "second pe-
riod opened, however, the Gopher of-
fense began to click, and baskets, by
Kundla, Addington, Manley and See-
bach gave Minnesota. a commanding
lead which it easily held to the final

him before the first lap was ended ...
From then on it was Howdy staying
in front of Woodruff with the as-
sistance of some verbal coaching by
younger brother Harold who was
boxing the champion in from the
outside . . . It was not until the
three runners were within 100 yards
of home that Woodruff shoved his
way out of the trap . . . But even
then the race was not over . . . Har-
old's pursuit of the long-striding
Negro was a thrilling thing to watch
. . . And it fell just short of success.

State (Danny Smick's friend) has
just made history by being elected
captain of the basketball team along
with his co-captainship of the "Scar-
let Scourge" eleven . . . There was
not a single fall registered in the
Michigan-Michigan State wrestling
meet Friday night . . . Coach Cliff
Keen's team, well-sprinkled with re-
serves, won every bout by decision
. Every Varsity hockey player in
the Big Ten will be awarded a gold
puck, emblem of Conference cham-
pionships . i . Michigan and Minne-
sota are the only Big Ten schools
sponsoring hockey teams, and the two
tied for the title ... In persuing the
pages of The Daily Illini, official or-'
gan of the University of Illinois, I
noticed what I consider to be an out-
standing example of sports curiosa.

THE COMING weekend is the big-
gest of the indoor seasorn for
three Wolverine teams, the swim-
mers, the wrestlers and the track-
men . . . It is the weekend of the
Conference championships, and Big
Ten titles mean more than any other
honor to Wolverine squads . . . And
it looks like a grand slam for Michi-
gan this year . . . I am not taking
too much for granted in predicting
championships for all three squads
The swimmers will get some
strong but scattered opposition from
Northwestern, Ohio State and Iowa,
but the well-balanced power inherent
in Coach Matt Mann's squads will be
too much for the other boys . . . The
chance of the wrestlers hinge on the
condition of "Butch" Jordan and
Paul Cameron and the outcome of,
Johnny Speicher's bout with "Two-
Bits" Meyers of Indiana . . . Coach
Charlie Hoyt has seen his track
team smitten by the ineligibility of
Walt Stone and Ben Starr, and Dave
Hunn's leg is a problematical quanti-
ty, but I still favor the Wolverines
. Again it will be Michigan's bal-
anced strength against individual
stars from Indiana, Ohio State and

pass on Chuck Sweeney's stick and
the latter made no mistake.
Toronto was all over the ice from
then on with Normie McClelland,
stellar Varsity veteran, pacing an at-
tack that was dangerous all the time.
Cooke spilled Morrison midway in
the period, and Toronto powered, but
the Wolverines checked hard and
Chase made a half-dozen beautiful
saves to keep the blue shirts away.
Michigan Back Strong
Michigan came back strongly in
the final period and began to really
go. Heyliger was robbed twice as the
fighting Beaver tore through the
rocky Canadian defense. The Ca-
nadians countered with a four-man
drive that just missed. Campbell
went prone to rob Fabello on what
lookd like a sure goal. Then play
shifted to the other end as Chase
made five saves in a row to with-
stand a vicious Toronto attack.
The Canadians broke again, but
Heyliger, just named All Mid-West
captain and center, hooked the puck
with a beautiful pole check and start-
ed in. Gibby James came tearing
on the right flank and Vic's pass was
perfectly timed. Gib let go with a
scorching drive that caught the far
high corner just over Campbell's
right shoulder.
Both teams went at it in the final
five minutes to give the crowd their
money's worth as they took turns
racing up and done the ice in the
fastest hockey exhibition ever seen
James Scores
With less than a minute to go
Coach Eddie Lowrey put on four for-
wards in a finalattempt touscore.
There were just five seconds left
when Heyliger hooked the puck again
and passed to James as the latter
raced into the Canadian defense
zone with only Campbell to beat.
Gib's shot was hard and low and
plucked the far corner just as the
gun barked finis to a thrilling game.
Eddie Lowrey and his club have noth-
ing to be ashamed of. They played
their hearts out against a great
hockey team that had twice as much
man power, and they turned in a
great job.

With a highly successful season
in dual competition now a part of
the past. Michigan's Varsity swim-
mers are pointing toward the three
meets which will provide them a
chance to prove their caliber against
all of the outstanding collegiate tank
teams in the country.
First in line for the natators will
be the Western Conference cham-
pionship meet to be held at Bloom-
ington, Ind., on Friday and Saturday
of this week. Last year the Wolver-
ines were nosed out by a powerful
Iowa team after a tough battle for
first place honors.
Varsity Superior
It will be a different story this
year, however, for the Varsity has
proved itself vastly superior to all
of the competition that the Big Ten
has had to offer. The Buckeyes from
Columbus came close once in at-
tempting to humble the highly touted
Wolverines, but when they came to
Ann Arbor for a return meet, a little
pressure applied by the Varsity sent
them home with a stinging defeat.

Michigan can count on victories in
the sprints, medley relay, free-style
relay, breast-stroke and at least one
of the distance swims. Tank follow-
ers are already hopeful of seeing a
shiny new '37 attached to the bot-
tom of the long column of Big Ten
victories on the record board at the
end of the Varsity pool.
Defend National Title
On March 25, the natators will
head for Minneapolis to defend their
National Collegiate title, and perhaps
add a few tank records to the books
of the N.C.A.A. With the exception
of Yale, the cream of the country's
swimmers will be present tocompete
for top honors in the collegiate
meets but an additional victory in
the A.A.U. contest would not be wei-
In addition to these two major con-
quests, Matt Mann will send a group
of tankers to compete in the Na-
tional A.A.U. meet to be held at the
Yale pool at New Haven, Conn. The
Varsity is concerned mainly in win-
ningthe conference and National
aquatic world.
