Big Nine Showing Makes Evans OlympicProspect

The Future . .
By IRWIN ZUCKER
Michigan's basketball team will
get another crack at a Madison
- Square Garden victory tonight
when it battles Columbia in the
consolation game of the Eastern
NCAA play-offs.
Both clubs were eliminated from
the national tourney Thursday
evening. The Big Nine champion
Wolverines fell to Holy Cross, de-
fending NCAA titlists, while the
Lions, Ivy League ruler for the
past two seasons, were blasted off
the floor by vaunted Kentucky.
Immediately following tonight's
Michigan-Columbia contest, Ken-
tucky and Holy Cross will tan-
gle in the finals of the Eastern
~competition. The survivor will
then meet the Western represen-
tative at the Garden March 23.
Budko, Columbia Threat
For its scoring punch, Columbia'
r depends mainly on its big center,
Walter Budko, who set a new in-
dividual scoring record at the$
Morningside Heights school this
year. In his latest effort, he tal-
lied 17 points against Kentucky
before fouling out.
The six foot five inch pivot man
paced his Columbia mates to an
impressive 21-1 record in over-all
r1ay this year. That lone setback
came at the hands of Princeton.
Columbia boasts a pair of fine
play-mskers in pint-sized Sherry
A1t.shall, left guard, and Al Vogel,
left forward, while Bruce Gehrke,
and Alex Kaplan, the other start-
ers, gave the Lions plenty of ag-
gressiveness.
Starts Same Team
Coach Ozzie Cowles plans no
change in the Wolverine line.up.
As usual, he will lead with Mack
Suprunowicz and Don McIntosh,
forwards; Capt. Bob Harrison and
Pete Elliott, guards; and Bill Rob-
erts, center.
Michigan and Columbia are
both newcomers to all this tour-
nament business. Tonight's their
last chance to salvage any of the
prestige it might have felt lost
Thursday.

The Past .
By BOB LENT
(Daily Associate Sports Editor)
NEW YORK, March 19-Mich-
igan just didn't have it, but Holy
Cross did-that was the story here
Thursday evening as the high-
geared Crusaders pounded out a
63-45 victory over the Wolverines
in the opening round of the NCAA
play-offs.
Coach Ozzie Cowles' quintet, in
the under-dog role, surprised the
18,500 Garden witnesses by taking
a 21-16 lead midway in the first
half, thanks to some fancy tossing
by forward Mack Suprunowicz.
But the Crusaders, bent on de-
fending their NCAA crown, began
filling the basket with deadly ac-
curacy shots to move to a 34-27
half-time lead. They kept up their
pace the rest of the way.
The big gun for the vistors was
Bob Cousy, a shifty sophomore
forward who dumped in 23 points
for his evening's work.
"Supey," who almost kept pace
with high-scoring Cousy in the
first half, was also responsible for

ketball game will be broadcast

the greater number of the few re-
boun'ds the Wolverines managed
to gather all night. He collected 14
points in the process to lead his
mates.,
With plenty of spring in their
legs, George Kaftan and Frank
Cfiring were particularly effective
off the boards for the Crusaders,
who were actually at a height dis-'
adivantage.
Michigan employed its famed
zone defense in the first half, but
the smart-moving New Englandersj
broke through witp phenomenal
success. In the second session,
Coach Cowles ordered his boys to
use the man-to-man play, but the
damage was already done.
Many Maize and Blue support-
erys felt Michigan turned in its
poorest ball-handling exhibition
cf the year against Holy Cross.

nament, classic of amateur grap-

By MERLE LEVIN
A new Olympic prospect came
to the fore last week when red-~
headed Gil Evans settled down to
the most consistent performance
of his career to place third in the
Big Nine high and low board div-
ing events.
Splitting the mighty Ohio State
diving dynasty right down the
middle, Evans left little doubt that;
he ranks next to Ohio's Miller
Anderson and Bruce Harlan as
the country's top diver, and some
who saw the Conference meet
came away convinced that Gil
will be beating Harlan before
long.
It was a serious, hardworking
Evans who went to Iowa City to
turn in a performance that
brought a wide smile to the genial
face of Coach Matt Mann who
had been working with the joking
redhead with mediocre sucess
ever since he arrived at Michigan
from Mercersburg Academy.
Competing on the same team as
Harry Holiday and Yale's Alan
Ford while at Mercersberg, Gil
had copped the National Prep
Hockey.
(Continued from Page 1)
its fast skating, Boston drew the
first blood, tallying at 10:23. Giles
Threadgold grabbed Joe McCus-
ker's pass at his own blue line and
outskated the Michigan defense
to beat Wolverine Goalie Jack
McDonald on a low hard shot.
Connie Hill tied things up at
17:13 as he fired a long shot from
the Boston College blue line, 70
feet out, to beat Boston's net-
tender Bernie Burke. During the
first period, McDonald had only
three saves as against 13 for
Burke.
The second period opened fast
and furious, with six penalties be-
ing handed out during the course
of the stanza. It was during the
first of Michigan's three penalties
that Boston moved out into the
lead 2-1 on Bob Mason's shot on
a pass from John Corcoran. Mc-
Donald's timing was off and was
too late to stop the 25 footer.

School Interscholastic di v i n g
crown in 1941 and his appearance
in Ann Arbor in the fall of 1942
was hailed by Michigan swimming
fans.
Evans put in one uneventful
season before leaving for the
Army Air Corps and two ye'r';
of swimming inactivity while
serving as a pilot.
Returning in 1945 Gil really

went to town, capturing tho Jun-
ior National high board cham-
pionship and placing second to
Miller Anderson in the NCAA
meet and also the AAU low board
event. Diving was looking up at
Michigan.
Then in 1946 Mike Peppe's
Buckeyes of Ohio State swept all
before them in the diving events
and Gil only managed to squeeze
F 3J

out a fifth in the NCAA low board
events while failing to place in
the high board.
Gil managed to salvage his
greatest thrill out of that sea-
son, however, by outpointing
Anderson in his specialty, a full
twisting front one and one-half
while competing in the AAU low
boards.
With Anderson, Harlan, Jack
Calhoun, and former NCAA cham-
pion Hobie Billingsley returning
to Ohio this year, things appeared
black indeed for Evans and after
his poor showing at Columbus,
his chances of showing well in the
Conference meet were rated al-
most nil.

Althiough 1ovcrwi eim ed by (1Ic'
muscle-might of Minnesota a~nd
Illinois in the Big Nine chai-
pionships last week, the Michigan
gymnastic squad can look back
with pride on a highly successful
season of competition.
Possessors of a 6-2 record, the
first Wolverine gym team in 15
years showed tremendous promise
in nosing out Wisconsin and Ohio
State in the Conference meet.
Most observersattributed the
Gopher and Illini avalanche to
superior experience and ability.
These same observers noted that
while Michigan lacked the neces-
sary ability to win the meet, they
did not lack the capacity to be-
come winners in future confer-
ence showdowns.
Schoendube Tops
Outstanding among the Wol-
verine performers was Bob
Schoendube who copped the Big
Nine Trampoline title. Coach
Newt Loken described Schoe-
dube's performance as flawless.
"Bob was tremendous. He execut-,
ed every maneuver with perfect
ease."
The one stuiit that put Schoe-
dube head and shoulders over the
rest of the competitors was the
difficult 'fliffis.' This is a double
front somersault with a half-twist,
the important function being the
early twist. Schoendube executed
this particular stunt twice, both
times perfectly.
A product of Brodener High in

i iia, Sulioendube is a J1. ior
in Physicail Education. This is his
second year on the tricky canvas
table. President of the Physical
Education Club, he has one more
year of varsity competition left.
Most members of the squad are
continuing workouts under the
watchful eye of Loken, although
the season has ended.
