ichigan ucksters Defeat Minnesota Sext

Wolverine Cagers To Face
Boilermaker Quint Tonight


j ichigan's hot-and-cold quin-
tet, bidding for its first Big Nine
r cage crown since 1929, faces an old
nemesis--Purdue-at 7:30 p.m. to-
day at Yost Field House.
The battle, which will draw
another capacity -crowd here,
regarded as a defensive duel by
many sideline observers.
Third-place Michigan, boasting
the prize defensive team record in
the Conference, a 49-point aver-
age for six league contests, will
rely on its tight defense and its
"one-two" punch tonight against
an almost equally-adept defensive
Coach Ozzie Cowles, who wit-
nessed Purdue's 53-51 conquest
of Minnesota last week, has
tagged the Boilermakers as a
dangarous ball-club. Although
six-foot-six Bill Butterfield,
center, is Purdue's tallest per-
former, the Lafayette team
causes plenty of trouble off the
boards, Cowles said.
The visitors, a sophomore-jun-

ior squad, have snapped out of
their shooting slump against the
Gophers to take over fourth place
in the wide-open Big Nine chase
with a 4-3 record.
Purdue's chief offensive gun
is forward Dick Axness, who
ranks seventh in the Conference
with an average of 13.6 points
per game. In his team's eight
non-league tussles, he has been
as equally prolific.
Howard Williams will probably
team with Axness at the forward
slots, while Andy Butchko and
Ralph Theissen, a pair of rangy
guards, will start again.
The Wolverines, who have
also improved their floor attack
(they hit on 38 per cent of their
shots in last week's surprise win
over Illinois), will lead with
their regular line-up of Mack
Suprunewicz and Don McIntosh,
forwards; Capt. Bob Harrison
and Pete Elliott, guards; and
Bill Roberts, center.
Michigan stopped Purdue last
year, but the Boilermakers have
captured 23 of the 32 games be-
tween the two schools.
After tonight's battle, the Maize
and Blue will tangle Indiana at
Ann Arbor Monday night..

Michigan's gymnastic squad,.
fresh from a lopsidedvictory over
Central Michigan, was subjected
to a strenuous final workout by
Coach Newt Loken yesterday in
preparation for the today's inva-
sion of'the University of Illinois'
NCAA Champions.
Loken, who had nothing but
p'raise for the club's perform-
ance against the Chippewas,
drilled the squad lengthily with
special emphasis on the high
bar and flying rings events, two
Illini specialties.
Coach Hartley Price of the Il-
lini brings one of the most for-
midable opponents in the nation
into cavernous Yost Field House
for the meet.
In competition this year, the
Orange and Blue have yet to
taste defeat, holding verdicts
over Purdue,. Nebraska, and
Michigan State. They face Chi-
cago in the Windy City Friday,
Feb'"ary13th, and then swing
into Ann Arbor for the meet
Standouts on the Illini club
include Capt.Vito Zinzi, defend-
ing Big Nine side-horse cham-
pion and Johnny O'Heron, de-
fending conference longhorse
titleholder. The squad has also
