Minnesota Outroughs Michigan Pucksters To Triumph


Illini Grab 37-34
WinO ver Badgers
MADISON, Wis., Jan. 21-UP)-The
Illinois sharpshooters, Bill Hapac and
Lewis (Pick) Dehner, sparked the
Illini into undisputed leadership of
the Big Ten Conference tonight by
taming the fiery University of Wis-
consin cagers, 37 to 34.
Hapac, forward, scored 17 points
on seven field goals and three free
throws. Dehner, center, tallied 10
points on three field goals and four
free throws. The Illini started click-
ing late in the first half and cap-
tured a 16 to 15 halftime lead.
Dave Dupee, forward, was high
scorer for Wisconsin, collecting six
field goals and three free thrws.
Andy Smith, forward, who played
only part of the game, was second
with eight points.
It was Illinois' fourth victory :n
five games and Wisconsin's third de-
feat in five. Minnesota and Indiana,
co-holders of the conference lead up
to tonight, were idle, thus allowing
Illinois to move to the top.
Michigan FiveI
Meets Veteran
Buckeye Team
Lynch Is Only Newcomer
On Squad That Finished
Third Last Year
The traditional Ohio State-Michi-
gan feud takes to the hardwood to-
morrow night when Coach Bennie
Oosterbaan's Varsity quintet invades
Columbus to meet a hard-fighting,
veteran Buckeye squad - the same
team minus Jim McDonald that fin-
ished third in last year's Conference
Ohio lost five Big Ten games last
season and two of them were to
Michigan. That fact is expected to
add extra heat to the festivities.
The Buckeyes stamped themselves
as prominent title contenders in their
opening game two weeks ago when
they scored a convincing 45 to 38
triumph over the heavily favored In-
diana five. This was followed by
another win over Northwestern, but
last Monday they suffered their first
reverse at the hands of Illinois.
Ohio State's first team is made up
entirely of veterans, with Bob Lynch,
reserve guard last year, replacing big
Jim McDonald, only regular lost by
,graduation. Michigan fans just
loved Jim.
Capt. Jim Hull, the squad's big gun,
is the boy Columbus fans are boosting
for All-Conference recognition this
year. In the Buckeyes' final three
pre-season games and first three Big
Ten scraps, Hull averaged 14 points
a game to rank among the leaders in
Conference scoring. Last season he
was fifth in the Big Ten with 136
pointst-a mark that established a
new Ohio State record. He will start
at one forward post tomorrow.
Another high scoring senior, Dick
Baker, is Hull's running mate at the
other forward position. Center
Johnny Schick rounds out a speedy,
sharpshooting forward line.
Guard Dick Boughner was good
enough last year to rate Conference
honorable mnetion along with Hull
and McDonald and is a defense bul-
wark besides being an accurate shot.
He scored 72 points in 1938. Bob
Lynch has been performing satisfac-
torily at the other guard.
The game will be hotly contested.

defeated Alex Henry, Ralph Turner,

bested Don Taylor, Frank Gonzales

Nichols Scores Fall
Michigan scored its fall when Don
Nichols, 175 pound champion of the
Big Ten, tossed Charles Powers in
6:11 with a top scissors and a reverse
half nelson.
It was Don's third victory of the
season as against no defeats, and his
brother, Harold, has the same rec-

Three Outstanding Sophomores I
Strengthen Quarter-Mile Ranks,


(Editor's Note: This is the third In a
series of articles discussing the pros-
pects for the 1939 Michigan track team
which will be defending its Big Ten
Indoor title this winter. Toda-the
When three freshmen quarter-
milers run the distance in better than
50 seconds it is to be expected that
when those same freshmen become
sophomores (as freshmen are wont
to do) they will find the varsity coach
awaiting their coming with open
And just so does Wolverine coach
Charlie Hoyt welcome sophomores
Warren Breidenbach, Phil Balyeat and
Jack Leutritz to his squad. But here
complications enter in, for veterans
Doug Hayes, Doss Faulkner, and
Harvey Clarke are all better than 50
second quarter-milers and all are
back seeking their regular berths.
Clarke, Leutritz Move Up
To solve this problem has called
for some rather astute maneuvering
on the part of CoachsHoyt and even
this has not entirely solved his prob-
lem of six better-than-50 men. Char-
lie's partial solution has been to
shove Leutritz and Clarke up a notch
into the half-mile. These men will be
available for the 440, however, should
spme unforeseen event cause a short-
age in the quarter-mile ranks.
Faulkner and Hayes will probably
be in there when the Wolverines
square off against Michigan State in
the first meet. Ross, a strong, smooth-
striding runner, took down second in
the outdoor Conference meet last
spring and, although he has been
hampered in his workouts this winter
by frequent colds, should rate as one
of the best in the Conference.
Breidenbach Is Smooth
Hayes finished fourth in theindoor
Conference meet last year and the
extra year of running under Coach
Hoyt has improved his chances of
bettering that accomplishment in
this year's meet.
Breidenbach is the smoothest run-
Track Team Holds
Final Time Trials
Coach Charlie Hoyt's Wolverine
track squad gave definite indications
that they are rounding into top form
as they went through the last in a
series of pre-season time trials at
the Yost Field House yesterday after-
"It looks like a pretty well balanced
team with quite a few of the second
place men almost as good as the
leaders," was the Wolverine men-
tor's comment. "The boys appear
in good physical condition, and if:
they're all available, we'll win some
track meets."
Although the sprinters' work did-
n't seem quite as satisfactory as he'd
like to have it, Hoyt expressed con-
fidence that the short distance
speedsters would improve in due

ner of the entire field. He has not hadj
much chance to show what he can do
in competition but he turned in a 49
flat quarter on one occasion last'
year out-of-doors.
Hoyt Enthusiastic
Balyeat is technically not a sopho-
more, having transferred here from
Michigan State, but this is his first
year of varsity track. He, too, has
done 49 flat and won the Junior
AAU quarter-mile championship last!
Hoyt is enthusiastic about prospects
for a good mile relay team and ex-
pects the Wolverines will improve on
their fourth in that event in the in-
door meet at Chicago last year. Wal-
do Abbott, another veteran, will prob-
ably see service with the relay team.
The ultimate success of the four-
some will, however, according to
Coach Hoyt, depend upon the develop-
ment of the sophomores.

The Ringers, Daily staff represen-
tatives, defeated the Type Lice 31-
29 in an extra period game at the
Intramural building yesterday for
their third straight win on the in-
dependents' basketball league. It was
a scoring duel between Mel Fineberg
of the winners with 20 and Bill Cain,
who scored 27 of his team's 29 points.

Psi Upsilon beat Sigma Alpha Mu 23-

23-8 in the other independent game.
Sam Henderson will meet W. P.

WEST POINT, Jan. 21.-(k)/-
Army's basketball team dropped its
first game in six starts this season
today, falling before the high scoring
Ohio State combination 48 to 39.
The Big Ten five took the lead in
the first minute of play on two field
goals by Baker and never was head-
ed. With both teams using a fast
break and scoring often, the first half
r ended with Ohio State on the long
L end of the 28-21 score.
