Vogel Takes Scoring Honors with 18 Points

BETHLEHEM, Pa., March 20-
(A)-Oklahoma A & M won the
18th NCAA wrestling tournament
tonight with 31 points and two
Aggie matmen copped individual
titles. The Midwest dominated
the tournament as it won seven of
the eight individual crowns.
Dick Hutton, Aggie heavy-
weight, tossed Thurman Mc-
Graw, Colorado A & M, to suc-
cessfully defend his title after
Jack St. Clair, 160 cowpoke
grappler, won a split decision
over incumbent champion Gale
Mikles, of Michigan State.
Bob Maldegan, Michigan State,
finished second to Hutton with
third and fourth places going to
McGraw and Arthur Archer, of
Illinois.
Vein Gagne, Minnesota, won the
191 pound title by pinning Leroy
Allitz, Iowa State Teachers Col-
lege, in 5:58. The 191 class is an
Olympic division and heretofore
not competed in under NCAA1
regulations.
Charles Gottfried, Illinois, de-
cisioned Bob Geigel, University of
Iowa, to win second place behind
Gagne. Geigel ranked third and
Allitz fourth.
Bill Koll, of Iowa State
Teachers College, pinned Don
Anderson, Michigan State in
4:16 to retain his title in the
147 division. Koll, termed by
several coaches present as an
Olympic prospect, experienced
little difficulty in pinning his
man and would have won under
the NCAA, two second pin rule.

George Lewis, Waynesburg Col-
lege, scored the first title win for
the East in the 125 pound division,
while Dick Dickensen, Michigan
State, took championship honors
in the 136 pound class.
Rometo Macias, Iowa U. placed
second to Lewis with Oklahoma
A & M's Paul McDaniel, third and
Gene McDonald, Michigan State,
fourth.

Wrist Watches
Time will tell! That's the old
saying which goes double for the
Wolverine basketball team,
For twelve Wolverines, the
watches they received last night
from Big Nine Commissioner
"Tug" Wilson will tell of the year,
1948, when Michigan player for
the first time in the MCAA tour-
nament at Madison Square Gar-
den.
As Pete Elliott, Bill Roberts,
Mack Suprunowicz, Don McIntosh,
Capt. Bob Harrison and the rest
walked away, they carried the
memory away engraved;
1948.
N.C.A.A. Basketball Champion-
ships and the players name.
Harrison, also accepted a silver
trophy in behalf of the Big Nine
Champs, while watches were also
given to Coach Ozzie Cowles; as-
sistant Joe Vancisin, and Ernie
McCoy.

honored by being selected on the
Associated Press All-Tournament
team. Ross Smith and Gacek were
picked on the second sextet.
The Wolverines jumped into an
early lead, when Gacek grabbed
Grant's pass and fired a 10-footer
past Dartmouth's goalie, Dick
Gesmond, after only 50 seconds of
the first period had elapsed.
Dartmouth was able to tie it up
shortly afterward, as Bill Riley
slammed a third rebound into the
Wolverine net at 4:25, with Bob
'Merriam getting the assist.
Gacek and Grant again team up,
at 10:55 of the initial stanza to
give Michigan a one goal lead.
Grant fed the pass to Gacek whoI
shot a 20 footer for the score. The'
goal was a direct result of some
very fancy passing that had the
Big Green completely confused.
With the Wolverines a man
short after Dick Starrak had been!
caught tripping, Dartmouth even-
ed the count at two apiece on a
goal by Whitey Campbell hefty
Green defenseman. He took the
puck all alone down the ice and
beat McDonald at 17:25 with a 151
footer.
Dartmouth moved out in
front for the first time in the
evening, when Crowly fired the
puck past goalie McDonald at
6:55 on a 10 foot shot.
Ten seconds later, the Big Green
moved two-up when Oss followed

NEW YORK, March 20-(P)-
Kentucky's mighty Wildcats oust-
ed defending champion Holy
Cross in the Eastern NCAA bas-
ketball playoff finals tonight, 60
to 52.
The Southeastern Conference
champions were sparked by big
Alex Groza and All-American
Ralph Beard. Groza, a 6-7 ball
of fire, racked up 23 points and
played a terrific game at the
backboards.

Malone's shot up and netted the
rebound.
Grant and Caek reversed the
procedure at 15:20 to move Michi-
gan to within one goal of Dart -
mout ). It was a. five foot shot
from the right of thie urt.
McMillan tied things up again
at the 16:40 of the middle stanza.
A timer's whistle had halted the
play and for a while it looke( lil:e
the goal would not be cOmnt d.
The time had stopped the action
because of a misunderstanding of
the rules cn a player returning to
the ice from a penalty.
Al Renfrew had gone directly
to the ice after completing at
two-ninute board checking pen-
alty, and it was cla imed that he
should have reported to his own
bench first.
Wolverine Coach Vic Heyliger
protested and the NCAA rules
committee awarded Michigan the
goal after a meeting between the
second and third periods.

EAST LANSING, March 20- -(A)
-The Vikings of Jackson reigned
today as undisputed kings of
Michigan's high school basketball
after taking the Class A tourney
title by a brilliant, 54-37 victory
over Port Huron.
The Vikings took the lead at
the outset and held it. piling up a
25-14 lead at half time.
The Big Reds from Port Huron
tied the score at 3-all early in the
first period and trailed thereafter.
They had a brief spurt of baskets
in the third period when forward
Don McPhail, guard Lyle Smith,
and forward Alex Goetze all piled
in the scores and closed within
three points of the Vikings' lead.
For individual honors, Jackson
guardl Vcrn Allen rated as the
hottest thling on legs on the state's
school boy courts. Allen provided
the thrill of the evening for the
14,920 fans who sat out the tour-
ney by scoring 22 points.
In the Class B contest, St. An-
drew of Detroit, an underdog in'
the race, fell to a more experi-
enced St. Joseph five, 36-27. It was
the fourth Class B title for the
Bears.
Milan fighting to the last min-
ute in the Class C struggle, edged
Saginaw St. Peter and Paul, 45-42.
The Midgets of St. Peter were the
only defending champions in the
tournament, and their defeat
gave the series an entirely new set
of title-holders for this year.
Mass, a sentimental favorite,
showed the terrific brand of ball
played in the Upper Peninsula
while downing Bridgman, 55-45.
The sharp shooters from the north
country captured the first trophy
to cross the Straits since 1930.

up most of the plays in the of-
fensive zone.
McIntosh never had his pivot
working better as he slipped in
seven baskets and held the Lions'
high-scoring Wally Budko to nine
points.
Vogel Scores 18 Points
Game scoring honors went to
Columbia's slippery forward, Al
Vogel with 18. He kept the New
Yorkers in the game for the first
half but couldn't offset the bal-
anced Wolverine attack.
Only at the start was Colum-
gia ahead as they jumped out to
a 10-6 lead, but, once the Wol-
verines passed them at 15-13, the
Lions couldn't seem to get the at-
tack going that gave them a sea-
son's record of 21 wins against a
single loss.
Slowv First Half
It was a slow, dismal first half
with both teams guarding closely
and neither being able to hit from
the outside. Play in general was
ragged but two short scoring
spurts by the Wolverines were too
much for the Columbians to over-
come.

(Conitinuedl from Page 1)

They pulled up to 24-21 at the
half, but Michigan rushed into a
32-24 lead before the Lions knew
what was happening. Coach Gor-
don Riding's boys pecked away
till they got within 34-30 but su-
prunowicz' outburst was too much
for them, and they played demor-
alized ball the rest of the way.
With Elliott leading the late
game attack Michigan pulled
steadily away to a 57-37 lead with
5 minutes to go, and Coach Ozzie
Cowles gave his subs a little Gar-
den experience.
Experience, most press box ob-
servers agreed, was all Michigan
needed. Needed for next year,
whenbthey all expect the Wolver-
ines back.
Baylor Five Wins
Baylor's Bears received the right
to meet Kentucky for the NCAA
national championship when the
Bears defeated Kansas State last
night, 60-52, in the Western NCAA
playoffs, which were held at Kan-
sas City.
