BIG TEN cage coaches are already beginning to rack their brains in an
effort to figure out a way of stopping Iowa's high-geared scoringj
THE HAWKEYES are undefeated in five games and have amassed 376
points to 192 for their adversaries. This top-heavy record shows
victories over such stalwarts as Notre Dame (by 17 points), Denver (by 23),
and Nebraska (by 16). Even more important than this is the statement
by the genial Iowa mentor, "Pops" Hanison, "that his team has still not
reached its potential scoring peak."
IOWA goes after number six this week against Michigan State prepara-
tory to their Big Ten opener against Minnesota the following week.
fHIEF COG in the Iowa attack is sophomore Dick Ives. Last yearj
as a freshman Ives captured the Big Ten scoring crown with 208
points and his 327 points in 18 games established a new lawkeye scor-
ing mark. Against the lowly Maroons, Ives' 43 points set an all-time
conference high for a single game. Ives again leads the scoring race
with 84 points in five games to date..
IVES IS particularly adept at shooting with either hand and his scoring
prowess makes him almost a one-man team. However, this year Ives
will have adequate support from a pair of brothers, Clayton and Herbert
Wilkinson, each a former star on University of Utah squads. Co-captains
Jack Spencer and Ned Postels complete the Iowa starting five.
ONE POINT in the last 70 seconds of the final game of the campaign
cost Iowa a share of the Conference title last year. Ives sparked the
Hawkeyes last year along with Dave Danner who is now is service, but
with Ives going full blast and a new brothe- combination to boot, look out
for the team on the other side of the Mississippi.
A LITTLE post mortem on the Michigan-Wyoming game, which.
the Wolverines won, 38-33. One of Coach Bennie Oosterbaan's
chief problems this year has been a lack of height, but in defeating
the Wyoming quintet which averaged 6.'4" and included a 6'9" center,
the question of whether Michigan can cope with a big team is not as
obscure as before.
INCIDENTALLY, if you're a believer in comparative scores, give Michi-
gan the nod over Ohio in the game tomorrow. Ohio and Wyoming
both lost to Kentucky by four points, while the Wolverines topped the
cowboys by five.

Victors in seven straight contests topped off by an impressive 38-33
triumph over Wyoming last Saturday, Michigan's cagers swing into
Western Conference action tomorrow night against a highly-rated Ohio
State quintet, defending Big Ten titlists.
The Wolverines had little difficulty in polishing off the tall but inex-
perienced Wyoming five to run their victory string to seven. Paced by
guard Walt Kell's 21-point scoring spree, Michigan took command during
the first three-quarters of the game and then withstood a last-minute
Cowboy rush to protect the winning margin.
Despite the victory over the towering Wyoming five, however, the
Wolverines will enter the Ohio State fracas as definite underdogs. Coach
H. G. Olsen's five, composed entirely of veterans from the squad which
dropped only two of 12 Big Ten tilts last sea on while grabbing the cham-
pionship, is just as tall as the Cowboy quintet and has the advantage of

In Team Scoring
Scoring 21 points against the Uni-
versity of Wyoming cagers Saturday
night, Walter Kell, Michigan guard,
boosted his seven-game total to 56
points to take the lead in the indi-
vidual scoring race for the Wolver-
Kell, who has registered 23 field
goals and ten free throws this sea-
son, is closely followe in the stand-
ings by Keith Harder, who held the
lead until Saturday's game. Harder
trails the Kankakee, Ill., boy by just
two points and has scored the same
number of field goals as Kell.
Otherwise, the scoring is evenly
distributed among the regulars, with
John Mullaney in the third spot with
42 points, followed by Ted Berce with
38 and Don Lindquist with 30.
Coach Bennie Oosterbaan's charges
have scored 277 points so far, an av-
erage of 39.5 per game.
The individual scoring follows:
Early indications are that the

Ledby the Hume twins, Ross, 1945
captain and Bob, who led the team
last season and Richard Barnard,
letterman from Williamsville, N.Y.,
the Wolverines will be strong in the
mile and the 880-yard run.
Coach Ken Doherty is planning
to move the Humes down to the
880-yard event and Barnard to the
quarter mile to better balance the
team strength. Bob Hume has
done 4:14.9 indoors for the mile
and Ross has covered the indoor
mile in 4:15.9. Both are capable of
running a fast half mile, while
Doherty believes that Barnard,
whose half mile indoor mark is
1:57.5, can run a creditable 440.
To keep Wolverine strength up tot
par in the longer events, Doherty is1
counting on Archie Parsons, civiliant
transfer from New York University

NEW YORK, Dec. 28-Some en-
chanting antics have enlivened Am-
erica's New Year's Day grid clas-
sics, but the one the fans will never
forget is California Roy Riegels'
wrong-way run in the Rose Bowl.
A decade and a half have passed

Georgia Tech fumble and raced 74
yards toward his own goal-in-

line by teammate Benny Lom.
On the next play Lom's attempted
punt from the end zone was blocked
for a safety, and the two points gave
Georgia Tech an 8-7 victory.
Riegels, heart-broken over the
"Corrigan"I run, came back the next
year to captain the Bears and play
outstanding ball. In explaining the
wrong-way incident, Riegels said:
"After picking up the fumble some-
body shoved me and I bounced right
off into a tackler. In pivoting to get
away from him, I completely lost my
