When Coach Ozzie Cowles and
the Big Nine cage titleholders
head East for this year's editionk
of the NCAA basketball play-offs
at Madison Square Gardens it will
be the fourth appearance for the
dynamic Wolverine coach who has
lifted the Michigan cage squad
from a second division outfit to
the champions of the Western
Conference in two years.
As the head mentor for Dart-
mouth, Cowles won seven Eastei n
basketball championships and di-
rected the efforts of the Indians
in three Garden appearances.
His first championship contest
was against the Badgers of Wis-
consin who had annexed the Big

Nine title and ruled as favorites
to win the NCAA championship.
Under Cowles, Dartmouth extend-
ed the Badgers all of the way
dropping a close decision 51-to->0.
Wisconsin went on to eliminate
the Western opponents and finish
the tournament as the NCAA's
claimant to the mythical top team
in the United States.
Dartmouth returned to the Gar-
den in 1942 only to lose to Ken-
tucky in the first round of East-
ern eliminations. (Ed.'s Note: All
teams east of the Mississippi are
classified as Eastern teams under
NCAA groupings.)

In the event that Sanders, in-

In one of the year's best match-
es the Wild Men took the first two
games, and the Strikers took the
third game and totals. The Wild
Men won the first game by one
pin on a roll-off, the second time
in three weeks that the Strikers
have been in a tie game and the
only time they have failed to come
through in the tie-breaking frame.

After losing the second game,
the Strikers really got hot as they
rolled a 1032 on the third game in
which four men bowled over 200,
the best of these being Cliff Rog-
ers with 222. This high game en-
abled the Strikers to set the new
high series, 2737.
The Turkeys kept themselves in
the running by downing the En-
gineers 4 to 0. Bob Vernier, who's
been out of action for a few weeks,
paced the winners with 205 in the
first game. The Spares contribut-
ed to the continued downfall of
the Splits by defeating them 4 to
0. Ed Pearce and Jim Seitz turned
in games of over 200 to help the
cause along.
In other matches the Shackers
downed the Dales, 3 to 1, the Law-
yers defeated the Phi Kappa Taus
by the same score, and the Bowl-
Hards shut out the Gamma Del-
tas, 4 to 0.
