Michigan will be out to ac-
coimplish two things when theyV
tip-off against the Boilermakers
tomorrow. First, they want to
avenge the setback they re-ceiv-
ed from Purdue early in the sea-
son, and second the Maize and
Blue must win to stay in eon -
tention for the Conference title.
In the first game Michigan
played a team of iron men, with
Taube using the same five players
throughout the entire game. Wil-
liams, Butchko, Captain Norris
Caudell, and Bill Berberian and
Norm Greiner at guards played
the whole 40 minutes.
THE SAME FIVE is scheduled
to start tomorrow night with the
possible exception of Greiner.
Either Julius Ritter or Bill Banks
may get the nod from Taube.
Remembering the perform-
ances of some of the men who
have seen little action since the
first Purdue contest, Coach Er-
nie McCoy may make frequent
use of some of the shorter men
on his squad.
Playing teams that have had a
wealth of height, McCoy has been
unable to use anything under six
feet for over a month. But the
Boilermakers are not particularly
long in this department which

Bill Mikulich and Bill Doyle were
outstanding during the time they
were in the game. Michigan trail-
ed by 11 points at the end of the
first half, but with these two Wol-
verines combining their efforts
with Hal Morrill, Pete Elliott and
Leo VanderKuy, Michigan knotted
the count at 27 apiece with the
period about half over.
Coach McCoy put his regulars
back in the game at this point,
but they couldn't match the ef-
forts of the Purdue five and ended
up on the short end of the score.
