Michigan Pucksters To Meet
Minnesota in Week-end-Series
Wolverines Have Scored Nine Straight Wins;
Coach Heyliger Stresses Defense in Practice
By RUTH ELCONIN
Boasting the longest winning
streak ever recorded by a Michigan
hockey team, the 1945-46 Wolverine
pucksters, with nine straight victor-
ies to their credit, will encounter the
Minnesota sextet this weekend at the
Speed Empha sized
In preparation for the Gopher tilts,
Coach Vic Heyliger stressed defensive
tactics during yesterday's practice.
The Maize and Blue puck mentor put
Tickets for the two Michigan-
Minnesota hockey games, sched-
tled for Friday and Saturday
nights of this week, will go on

game, Coach Vic Heyliger has

the squad through some speedy drills,
but -emphasized covering' up in front
of the net and body checking since
the puckmen have not been up to par
on these points in past tilts.
Offensively, Heyliger said, the team
is in top form. Commenting on the1
Wolverine's front line men, he wasf
especially pleased with the work of
hg's first two forward lines of Al Ren-
frew, Bill Jacobson, Gord MacMillan,
and Wally Gacek, Neil Celley, and
Walt Grant. Heyliger also singled'
out the playing of Chet Kuznier, cen-
ter on the- third line, in last week's
contests with Colorado College.
The Michigan-Minnesota series has
always been the highlight of the sea-
son, and the Maize and Blue puck
mentor stated, "These are the two
games we really want." If this week's
contests resemble any of the former
tilts between these two teams, then
there probably will be plenty of ex-
citing moments in store for Michi-
gan puck fans.
Meeting for the first time in 1922,
the Wolverine-Gopher hockey teams
have one of the oldest ice rivalerles
in the Big Ten. Minnesota holds the
edge in the 82 game series, having
defeated Michigan 54 times with
seven matches ending in a deadlock.
The Maize and Blue will be seeking
its first triumph since 1942 when it
downed the Gopher team, 3-2.
James (Ching) Johnson, son of the
New York Rangers old-time star de-
fenseman, Ching Johnson, is called
"the most improved player on the
squad" by Coach Vic Heyliger. The
younger Johnson is also a defenseman.
WITH Ol' Man Winter evidently
settled down for a long and cold
stay here in Ann Arbor, many sports
enthusiasts on the campus are now
llooking to the indoor sports for re-
creation and relaxation. The Sports
Building, offering adequate facilities
for almost any athletic activity and a
staff anxious to meet the demands of
the students, has become the center
of these student participation sports.
BOXING, under the instruction of
Ed Cochran, is a new addition to
the sports program. The class, which
is held from 7:30 to 9:30 each Wed-
nesday night, should be of especial
interest to those who plan to enter
the All-Campus Boxing Tournament
to be held this year.S
That basketball is still the King of
American winter-time sports is dem-
onstrated by the 60 teams which par-
ticipate in the various basketball
leagues at the Sports Building. The
latest league to be formed is the one
from the International Center with
Chinese, Turkish, Hindu and Latin-
American teams taking part.

Forward Paces Five
With 11.5 Average
At the end of eleven games of 1945-
46 play, young Bob Harrison, fresh-
man forward from Toledo, O., leads
the Michigan cagers in individual
scoring with a composite personal to-
tal of 126 points.
The 17-year old neophyte, playing
his first year of collegiate ball, has
sunk 53 field goals and 20 of a possi-
ble 39 free throws to clinch top hon-
ors. Twenty-five personal fours have
been called against him in eleven
Glen Selbo, varsity center, stands
in the number two scoring spot, only
a scant three points behind his team-
mate. The Navy transfer student,
who starred for Western Michigan
last year, has amassed 123 markers
on 50 field goals and 23 charity tosses.
A further glance at his individual
record reveals that he has been tagged
with 24 personal fouls.
Dave Strack, John Mullaney, and
Pete Elliott, the three remaining
members of the starting quintet, rate
third, fourth, and fifth in that order.
Stracd played on Michigan's '42-'43
cage crew before entering the service,
and now handles a varsity guard
spot. He has sunk 35 baskets and six
gift shots for a total of 76 points and
a .667 percentage rating.
Mullaney Scores 60 Points
At the other guard position Mul-
laney has netted 60 markers, on 20
goals and 20 of 26 free throws. Har-
rison's fellow-forward, Elliott, who
made a name for himself in the Wol-
verine backfield last fall, has man-
aged to chalk up 52 points in the 10
games in which he has participated.
The Navy student's record reads 19
field goals and 14 free throws made.
The top ten bracket is filled out by
Bob Feinberg, with 37 points; Walt
Kell, 30; Bill Walton, 26; Bill Diet-
rich, 20; and Bob Baker, 19.

With the all-campus wrestling

Coach Cliff Keen has a fairly good

schedule on Saturday.

With an eye to choosing the men
who will compete for the Michigan
track team this year, Michigan track
coach Ken Doherty will send his
charges through the first of two
weekend time trials Saturday after-
It will be the first time since the
Intra-squad track meet before
Christmas that the thinclads have
run against time. The times turned
in will definitely give Doherty a basis
for comparison between the team of
this year and of other years, and the
other teams in the Conference.
The trials will also serve as a means
of checking the improvement made
by the various members of the team.
After the trials Saturday and next
week, the make-up of the 1946 team
ought to be fairly well set.
