Cagers Seek
Revenge Over
OSU Quintet
Victory Saturday
Will Even Series
Michigan's unpredictable c a g e
squad will be out to do a little eve-
ning up Saturday night at Yost Field
House when the Wolverines seek to
avenge an early season loss at the
hands of Ohio State in a court battle
which will find the Buckeyes without
their spark plug and high scorer of
last season, 6 ft. 9 in. Arnold "Stilts"
In Saturday's contest Michigan will
try to even three scores. The first aim
of the cagers is to bring their won and
lost record back to the .500 mark. A
win would give the hoopsters a Big
Ten record of four losses balanced by
four victories.
Cagers Lost at Columbus
It will be almost a month to the
day sine the last meeting of the two
teams when Michigan absorbed a 57-
40 beating at Columbus in a tilt
which Wolverine coach Bennie Oos-
terbaan termed, "One of the poorest
games we've played all season." The
cagers are out to even this year's
record with the Buckeyes.I
Since the start .of competition be-
tween the two schools 45 league
games have been played. The record

vor of O.S.U. There lies the third in-

only loss was anupsetat the hands
of Indiana's surprising cage crew.
Outside of Big Ten competition Ohio
has dropped one game. This was a
two point loss to a star-studded
Wright Field quintet in the' Bucks'
second game of the season.
With the exception of Risen, Sat-
urday's crew will be the same O.S.U.
quintet that humbled Michigan by 17
points. However, any slack that Ris-
en's loss has caused in Buckee scor-
ing has been taken up by the remain-
ing regulars. Risen was forced to give
up his athletic activities because of
failure to meet required scholastic
Al Underman has taken Risen's
place at center and has displayed ex-
ceptional ability at that position. In
five gapes Underman has racked up
50 points to stand 12th in Confer-

WESTERN CONFERENCE basketball teams are having their fun while}
they can. Tied up in a red hot race for the championship, and with
the lead changing hands at the completion of almost every weekend series,
periodic upsets are driving the fickle dopesters to despair.
The last we heard, Minnesoea was in first place, holding the breath-
taking distinction of being the only team undefeated in Big Ten compe-
tition. We look at this situation as purely temporary, in the light of that
old Brooklyn expression, "Wait till next year."#

Western Conference title for the second straight year. During the '42-43
season, the Illini won all 12 of their Big Ten outings, and lost none.
They collected 753 points, and held their opponents to 465. The team
closest to them in the standings was Indiana, who won ten and lost two.
"Guess who beat Indiana that year?
March 1 was a significant date for the Whiz Kids in more ways than one.
Andy Phillip, the high-scoring forward star for the Illinois quintet, set a
new Big Ten record for a single game, getting 40 points, nearly half of his
team's total. The 92 points scored set a new Big Ten record for marksman-
ship, too.
The Whiz Kids were the hottest things in basketball that year. Expert

4 SINGLE INDICATION of their power was the beating they had admin-
istered to Northwestern the Saturday before that final game with Chi-
cago. In swamping the Wildcats, 86-44, the Kids beat the eventual third
place winners. Their victories were certainly not recorded against a bunch
of "soft touches".
Next year, things may get back to normal-Whiz Kid normal--at Ill-
inois. Coach Doug Mills can forget this winter's debacle with few regrets,
since he looks forward to another record-breaking season with the Kids.
Jack Smiley, a brilliant guard in '42-43, is already back on the Illinois
campus. Ken Menke, a forward, has sailed for the States, and may be on
time to enroll for the spring term.
Neither Smiley nor Menke is slated to play this year, even in the final
games. They have only one year of competition left, and they are storing,
it all up for next winter.
Phillip himself, who broke practically every scoring record in sight while
he was with the Kids, is playing with a Marine team in Pearl Harbor. Guard

A discharged veteran, Major Wil-

break into the winning column
