Part of Michigan's success in
the charmed circle of the indivi-
dual scoring race is a result of the
number of Conference tilts in
which the Wolverines have parti-
cipated. Unlike the rest of their
Big Ten opponents, the Maize and
Blue have played three games,
Each of the other eight teams in
the cage group has marked only
one contest of its schedule except
Ohio State, which has participated
in two games.
The top average among the first
six players belongs to Morris, cen-
ter for the Wildcats, who collected
all of his 21 points in Saturday's
game with Wisconsin, while the sec-
and best average goes to Risen, the
6 ft., 9 in. Buckeye whose tip ins
and backboard shots under the op-
ponents' baskets have netted him an
average of 15.5 points per game. Gea-
han's average, on the other hand, s
12.3 per outing.
Tied for first place in the Confer-
ence standings are three teams, eac
boasting a record of one win against
no losses. Northwestern, Purdue.
and Iowa sport perfect records, While
Michigan ranks fourth with two win.'
against no losses for a .667 average.
Ohio State has earned a .500 rating,
with the standings rounded out by
Indiana, Illinois, Wisconsin, and
Minnesota, who failed to .come
through in single contests.
