High-Scoring Cage Ace

Is on the level. As is the custom
in this modern day and age, how-
ever ,the statement has been tele-
scoped to just "Supey."
Mack Suprunowicz, cat-like for-
ward on the Wolverine cage squad
traveled west from his New York
home to lend a more than helping
hand to the cause of the Maize
l and Blue cage ambitions.
Began Here In '46
This unpretentious young man
has had a corner on one of Michi-
gan's forward posts since he start-
ed here in the fall of 1946, and wa
invaluable in bringing the Confer-
ence title to Michigan.
This year he led the team in
scoring in conference play with
145 points, and was second in the
overall "bucket brigade" netting
214 counters. He played one less
game than Capt. Bob Harrison
who swished 221.
"Supey's" prowess on the hard-
woods, however, has not been lim-
ited to his two-year stand on con-
ference courts. He played three
years of high school ball in which
he brought home a closet full of
trophies and awards.
Winds Awards
His most vivid and gratifying
memory of his embroyonic bas-
ketball days. is a post-season tour-
Y nament held in Little Falls, New
York. Mack paced his team to vic-
tory and in the process won a few
trinkets for himself. A trophy for
being the outstanding player, an-
other for the best shot, and a min-
iature gold basketball for placing
on the All-Tourney team, are a

Hadar Made
End Coach
At .Harvard
CAMBRIDGE, Mass,, March
15 - (/P) - Elmer Madar, All
America end at Michigan in
1346, tonight was appointed
end coach at Harvard.
Arthur Valpey, new Harvard
football mentor who met his
squad for the first time today,
announced the appointment.
Madar, who played with the
Baltimore Colts of the All
America Conference last fall,
will arrive in Cambridge Wed-
nesday. ,
The new assistant was a
wingback at Michigan in 1941
and shifted to end in 1942
when he became one of the
"Seven Oak Posts," the name
given the Michigan line be-
cause the , starting members
played about 55 minutes of
every contest.
After the 1942 contest Ma-
dar went into the Army and
returned to college in 1946.

Title -termed
Team' Vietory
Michigan's swimming team
proved to the nation that they
can be ranked with the greatest
teams of the past as they over,
came the Diving Dynasty of Ohio
State to recapture the Western
Conference title.
More than anything it was a
team victory, a victory not of one
individual but of a group of ex-
cellent swimmers. Matt Mann has
put together an aggregation that
has depth and power in every
event, and that's what paid off
last weekend in Iowa City.
If it were necessary to pick
out one outstanding performer,
the name of Matty Mann would
have to be cited as that
swimmer. The younger Mann
garnered 13 big points with a
first in the 1,500-meter, a sec-
ond in the 440-yard freestyle
and a third in the 220-yard
But Mann was only one mem-
ber of a team that functioned
beautifully. Another man, Gil
Evans, Wolverine diving star
turned in two outstanding per-
formances. His diving in both the
low and high board events left
little to be desired.
Evans' endeavors netted him
two thirds or six points, but
those points spelled the differ-
ence between victory and de-
feat. He boke up the Ohio
State domination of the diving
and was barely nudged out of
second place in both events.
The Wolverines took only three
firsts, in the 1,500-meter, the 150-
yard backstroke and in the 300-
yard medley relay, but in all 11
events the worst they finished
was third. And that demonstrates
the power of the 1948 Michigan
Tnidvidualy Mann was high
man with 13 points, closely foll-
lowed by Harry Holiday who
notched 6 points for his win and
was given 3 1/3 for his aid in the
medley relay victory and 1 2 for
his effort in the third place the
Wolverines took in the sprint re-
lay, for a total of 10 5/6.
Third in point scoring was
Dick Weinberg with seconds in
the 50-yard and 100-yard free-
style and an anchor on the
sprint relay for 9 points. Bob

Sohl gathered 7 1/3 for his sec-
ond place in the breaststroke
and his stint in the victorious
medley relay.
Evans with his two thirds and
Gus Stager with a fourth in the
1,500, a fifth in the 220 and a
third in the 440 added 6 points
each to the Wolverine cause.

Ice lb >us
Michigan's visions of a na-
tional hockey championship
were dealt a severe blow when
coach Vie Heyliger learned
that N'AA rules prohibit wing-
man led Greer and defense-
man (lem Cossalter from par-
ticipating in the NCAA cham-
pionships at Colorado Springs,
hleyliger has protested the
ruling which eliminates Greer,
fourth highest scorer of the
Wolverines and member of the
speedy "G" line.
The rule sta'tes that a player
can compete for four years only
if he played as a freshman
under wartime rules. Greer did
not compete as a freshman al-~
though lie played two years as
a Navy trainee, last year, and
this year.
The rules also exclude Cos-
salter because they require that
a player must have played
three semesters to be eligible
for the playoffs. Cossalter has
only played two.
Greer will accompany the
squad on the western trip

the final results.
Because the Wolverines had to

Chicago, he hadn't learned until
yesterday that his lads had been

nemesis, Illinois, 53 1/3-52.
Doherty Pleased
Despite the second place stand-
ing, Doherty was well pleased
with the performance of his squad
which lost the services of Cap-
tain Herb Barten in all but the
mile relay due to a bad cold.
The Wolverine mentor waspar-
ticularly pleased with the ability
of his runners to double and
sometimes triple in amassing the;
52 point total.
Both Bob Thomason and Joe
Hayden ran in three events dur-
ing the evening while George
Shepherd, Val Johnson, George
Vetter and Justin Williams each
participated twice.

Foitunately for Michigan and
the basketball renaissance here,
Suprunowicz was released from
the Marines on Sept. 1, 1946. His
talents with the ball and hoop
were auickly recognized by Ozzie
Cowles, when Mack reported for
practice that fall.
Despite the fact that "Supey"
is a star and an individual per-
former in his own right, he is glad
to see that Michigan works as a
team. "If you've got a one man
team and that man is stopped,
you're sunk. We've got an all-
around squad with tremendous po-
tential. Everybody's a threat."
