Mack Suprunowicz displayed
the form which won him last sea-
son's scoring honors for Michigan,
as he racked up 28 points last
night to lead Michigan to a 64-
53 victory over Purdue.
He surpassed the old Michigan
record of thi's decade, which was
27 points scored by Tommy King
in a game against Ohio State in
January 28, 1944.
place and in every imaginable po-
sition the cat-like forward sank
one out of every two shots he took
from the floor, which added to his
two free throws, gave him the sea-
son's high for Michigan.
Before the game he as much
as predicted that he would have
a good night. He stated "The
Minnesota game is history now,
we're going to concentrate on
Purdue to keep this firom being
aiotlier lost weekend,' like we
had last J.anuary against tlhbse
twg te'a nis."
It was Supe who put Michigan
out in the lead early in the second
period after a see-saw battle be-
tween the two teams throughout
'the first 27 minutes of the game.
WITH THE score knotted at 37
points apiece Mack dumped in
seven points in a row. Bob Harri-
son netted three points and Bill
Mikulich swished a fielder before
Purdue was able to score again.
Michigan made a half-heart-
ed attempt to stall with about
five minutes to play ahd hold-
ing a 53-42 edge. Purdue start-
ed playing rough and also sink-
ing points, and when the gap
was only 53-47 the Wolverines
opened up again.
BILL MIKULICH, who started
the game in place of Hal Morrill
at forward, landed the first blow
after slightly more than five min-

utes had elapsed and from then
on it was nip and tuck.
Mikulich took Michigan's
scoring honors in the first Pur-
due game, but last night was
forced to take runnerup laurels
with 13.
Purdue's scoring efforts were
paced by Andy Butchko who net-

Injury to Starra'k
Hits Icemen hard

Posting a pair of victories over?
an outclassed Minnesota sextet,,
Michigan's hockey team all but
cinched the midwestern bid to the
coming NCAA tournament for t.he
second straight year.
The Wolverines looked good in
ringing up 4-1 and 6-3 decisions{
over the Golden Gophers, but the I
Maize and Blue received a blow
which may prove to be of very se- I
rious consequence.
Ace defenseman Dick Starrak
received a bad gash in his left
arm from a Minnesota player's
skate during the second period of
Saturday night's contest. He was
forced to retire and was treated
in the Rochester hospital.
The Rochester doctor who ad-
ministered to Starrak estimated
that it would be at least two weeks
before he would be able to return
to action.
This is the part that'will hurt
the Wolverines for in the two
weeks that follow, they have four'
very important games on the

docket. Minnesota invades Ann
Arbor this weekend and the Wol-
verines are host to the Huskies of
Michigan 't'eeh on March 4 and 5.
None of these games will be easy.
Withoul, Stari' ra k, Wolverine
coach Vic Ileyliger will be left
with only one top-notch defense-
man, Connie Hill and while Hill
is a great player, he is not iron
man and Michigan's defense will
be seriously weakened 'when he is
off the ice.
Starrak's loss comes hard on the
heels of a shoulder injury to Ross
Smith which put him on the shelf
for the rest of the season.
While Heyliger has not defi-
nitely indicated that he will do to
replace Starrak, sever ideas put
forth by members of the squad.

at the back spot at times when
Michigan was short handed, might

-1f11 Captain Out for Knee
Operation, Mlissed by Team

. _

,_ _ _




Cage captain Bill Roberts un-
Jerwent a knee operation yester-
Pay afternoon and is expected to
remain in the University Hospi-
lal at least ten days.
His last act as Wolverine cap-
tain was the painful chore of
watching his teammates bow once
more to Minnesota.
Without taking anything away
from Leo VanderKuy, who played
his best game this season, big Jim
McIntyre felt that Michigan
missed Roberts.
"WE FIG UREP him both of-
fensively and defensively," Mc-
Intyre said. His height might
have relieved the two-on-one situ-
at ion under the basket.
Vander Kuy had terrific po-
tentialities," the Gopher center

added. "He shows a, good hook
shot and he knows how to get
those rebounds."
Along with McIntyre, Bud
Grant and Whitey Skoog breathed
easy for the first time this semes-
ter-now that Minnesota was over
the hum.
"Coach McCoy sure plays all
the angles," the sparky Skoog
said. "With two men guarding
Mac, it left Suprunowicz playing
a one man zone out in front. Be-
sides taking care of our two
guards, Olsen and Mitchell, he
had to drift over and cut me off
whenever Elliott forced me in
from the side."
AS FOR HIS "other self,"
the old red-head, Skoog thought
Elliott was "as annoying as fly-
paper, but a great guy person-
