Quintet Whips Colorado A & M,
Toledo, Colorado U.; Drops One
Michigan's defending Big Nine basketball squad rounded out
its pre-conference games during a five game holiday invasion of the
midwest and far west.
The Wolverines won four games, dropping Colorado A&M, 56-37,
Santa Clara, 53-37, Toledo, 46-45, and Colorado University, 47-38,
while losing a 53-51 decision to Stanford's Indians.
COACH ERNIE McCOY was quite pleased over the quintet's
showing and commented on the squad's poise.
"We came from behind in three of the games and in no contest
did the boys show any sign of O
the usual tension found when a
team plays on a strange court,"
McCoy stated and said that he
would be hard put to single out

that paid off in the Toledo, Col-

Stanford game as the best of the
vacation trip stating that the
Wolverines bowed to a team that
was up and, for the night, a bet-
The Toledo game which saw
the Wolverines edge the Rockets
by one point, 46-45, was termed
by the coach as one of the
roughest and hardest fought
contests that he has witnessed.
Toledo was up for this return
match; McCoy said, and con-
sidered the game with Michigan
as the highlight of the season.
THE WOLVERINE mentor
stated that his team was off form
against the Rockets and had high
praise for the Toledo quintet's
One of the unfortunate cir-
cumstances was the conduct of
the spectators at the game.
Michigan and Toledo players
were handicapped all during
the game by intense booing
from the stands as they at-
tempted free tosses.
The Wolverines had little
trouble against the Broncos of
Santa Clara, rebounding from
their set back at the hands of the
Stanford squad to take a decisive

A SPECIAL NCAA committee
has been making a study of the
multitudinous Bowl games. It is
scheduled to report during the
meeting of college heads this
weekend in San Francisco.
The NCAA decided a year ago
to become a tough papa to its
more than 304 member institu-
tions. It adopted a "sanity code"
to curb high-pressure recruiting
and set itself up for the first
time as a regulatory body.
Some sort of action was urged
strongly last year by a group,
whose mainspring was Coach Tad
Weiman of the University of

the regular campaign and Jan. 1,1
