among the Buckeyes is the husky
Wright who excels in both hurdle
events, the 60-yard dash and the shot
put. Styled the "blond bombshell," the
Ohio sophomore is a 6 foot, 3 inch,
195-pound speedster who already has
attained current ranking among the
nation's three top hurdlers. Within
a month" the lad has equaled ;he
world's high barrier record, won the
Illinois Relay highs, swept both tim-
ber events against Indiana and
cpped second in the National AAU's.
Wright Has Edge
Outclassed by the blazing Buckeye
star on paper, a trio of Wolverines
will nevertheless push him hard in
the low hurdle feature. Junior Al
Thomas displayed concrete evidence
of his ability in the triangular meet,-

while veteran Jeff Hall and versa-
tile Frank McCarthy are also fine
performers. The latter two will also
test Wright in the high barrier event.
Capt. Les Eisenhart, Ohio's middle-
distance ace, is expected to double in
the mile and the 880. The Buckeye
took third in last year's Big Ten out-
door mile run and will go against
Michigan's steady Karl Wisner at
that distance tonight in what stacks
up as a thrilling duel. Michigan's
best bets in the 880 against Eisenhart
are Johnny Kautz, Jack Dobson and
Dave Matthews.

Quintet Closes
Cage Season
At Columbus
Special to 'The Daily)
COLUMBUS, 0., March 1-Flushed
with a new-found spirit that has
brought them four straight victories
in their Big Ten contests, Coach
Bennie Oosterbaan's Michigan bas-
ketball team will draw the curtain
on its 1940-41 hoop season here to-
night against Ohio State's battling
Buckeyes.
The Wolverines will be out to make
tohight's game the third in a series
of successful revenge encounters
against teams that have defeated the
Maize and Blue earlier in the year.
Last Saturday, Coach Bennie Oos-
terbaan's cagers evened a score with
Illinois for an early season setback;
Monday, the Wolverines turned the
tables on Northwestern who had also
held a previous decision over Michi-
gan; and tonight, they'll attempt
to apply the same treatment to the
Ohio State cagers who defeated the
Oosterbaanmen in their Conference
opener.
In addition to the revenge motive,
the Wolverines will also be goaded on
by the chance of winding up the Big
Ten campaign with a .500 percentage
and a possible tie for a place in the
upper bracket of the league stand-
ings.
The big man in the Ohio State
lineup whom the Wolverines will
have to stop is sharp-shooting Dick
Fisher, third leading scorer in the
Conference with 132 points. Fisher
will team up in the Buckeye forecourt
with glim Jack McLain. Roger Jor-
genson, six-foot five inch center,
will start at the pivot position, and
Max Gecowetz and Jack Dawson,
one of the few men who has held in
check Mike Sofiak this season, at the
guard posts.

Battle Against Gophers

rout and the Gophers dented the
cords five times. What had been a
good contest from the spectators'
viewpoint became merely a demon-
stration of the various methods em-
ployed by a hockey team in scoring
goals.
But in those first two periods, the
Michigan club put up a battle that
-

Eggleton and Jim Magnus on the
wings. This combination pravided
most of the fireworks in the first con-
test, turmng in five goals. Blond
Jim Magnus scored three times, Eg-
gleton had two goals and an assist
and Galligan was the game's leading
scorer with four assists.
Fine Defense Work
The Gophers will probably use Ken
Cramp and Ian Anderson atr the de-
fense posts. The two starting back-
liners turned in some great- work in
keeping the locals away from their
net Thursday and Cramp also scored
an unassisted goal.
Burt Joseph wit! uie in the goal
for Minnesota. Joseph turned in a
gbod workmanlike job Thursday as
is evidenced by the fact that no
goals were scored against him. But
he had no more than two or three
difficult shots directed at him during
the course of the game.
Starting Front Line;
Eddie Lowrey will counter with a
starting front line of Capt. Charley
Ross, Paul Goldsnith and Bob Fife.
His second set of forwards will prob-
ably consist of Max Bahrych, Bob
Collins and Jimmy Lovett. Fred Hed-
dle, Johnny Petritz and Roy Bradley
vill be used for reserve duty.
Johnny Gillis and Bert Stodden
will probably play the full 60 minutes
at the defense posts for Michigan
with diminutive Hank Loud in the
goal, Loud turned in a 'sensational
performance in the first game against
the Maroon and Gold Warriors and
he will have to duplicate it tonight
if the'' Wolverines are to have a
chance for victory.

(Special to The Daily)
ANNAPOLIS, Md., Feb. 28-The
University of Michigan wrestling
team, determined to win its last
dual meet of the season, arrived here
today to engage a twice-beaten Navy
squad.
Although the Wolverines were de-
featea in a hair-splitter yesterday by
a strong Penn State team, their
chances against the service squad are
bright, considering the fact that
Navy was beaten earlier in the year
by the Nittany Lions.
If Michigan's Jim Galles again
wrestles in the heavy weight division,
his match against John Harrell
should be the feature bout of the af-
ternoon. Harrell, a transfer from the
hot spot of wrestling-Oklahoma A.
and M.-won the National Collegiate
Heavyweight Championship in 1939.
Galles, on the other hand, is a reg-
ular 175-pounder and has already
won two tussles in the heavier class.
John Landreth, Navy's captain, is
one of the best bantamweight grap-
plers that Navy has had in several

w e'
n Last Dual Meet'
years. His match with Michigan's
121-pounder, Fred Klemach, should
be very fasL. But the outcome will
probably be a one-sided affair, with
the service grappler on the winning
side at the finish.
The remaining matches will round-
out as follows: Weidig, Michigan, vs.
Godfrey, Navy, 128-pounds; Deane,
Michigan, vs. Buckwalter, Navy, 136-
pounds; Barnett, Michigan, vs. Hollo-
way, Navy, 145-pounds; Paup, Mich-
igan, vs. King,,Navy, 155-pounds;
Paddy, Michigan, vs. Weems, Navy,
165-pounds; and Courtright, Michi-
gan, vs. Carmichael, Navy, 175-
pounds,
