Purdue two weeks ago, but Mich-
igan exhibited a passing finesse
that Wolverine fans hadn't seen
all year.
As far as passing goes, the
Illini weren't slouches in that
department either.
They kept up with the Maize
and Blue in the shots from the'
field, too, with each team sink-
ing 23 out of 87 shots for a 26.4
percentage.
BUT THE Wolverines took full
advantage of the free shots,
dropping in 24 of 32 attempts.
Illinois, on the other hand,
couldn't seem to hit what char-
ity tosses they managed to get,
and ended up with less than
Blue
Champaign

half of their 15 throws going
through the hoop.
It was this large discrepancy at"
the free throw line that killed the
Illini's chances for victory.
VANDERKUY WAS the Wol-
verine "hot shot" from the free
throw line.
In the first 30 minutes of
play, he made eight consecu-
tive free shots. Then he was
hacked by All-Conference
guard Bill Erickson, missed the
first of a pair of heaves and
came through on the next.
But the work of Bob Harrison
from the same place can't be over-E
looked.
Playing his last game for the
Maize and Blue, Harrison netted
seven gift throws in 10 attempts.
Three other Wolverines also
closed their college careers in a
blaze of glory.l
Guard Pete Elliott tallied seven
points and played a brilliant game
on defense until he was pulled
with less than a minute of play
remaining.
Forwards Bill Mikulich and
Boyd McCaslin split duties at the
right forward and also played fine
ball, setting up many scores with
passes and playing well defen-
sively.

Standings

By The Associated Press I
Bob Harrison was the only
Michigan man to rate a first team
berth in the hotly-contested 1949
All-Star Big Nine basketball team,
selected by the Associated Press
yesterday.
Not a single choice was unani-
mous. Eight players received be-
tween four and six first-team
votes. Three 1948 All-Stars failed
to repeat.
TITLE WINNING Illinois and
runner-up Minnesota, which bat-
tied for the title almost down to
{ the wire, landed only one per-
former each. as did Wisconsin..
Michigan, and Ohio State.
The Illini honored was Guard
Bill Erickson, a terrific "money"

TllS COMBINATION, averag-
ing almost 6-3 in height and a

nois and center Jim McIntyre of
Minnesota, both 1948 All-Stars.
and Purdue's brilliant IHowie Wil-
liams.
Michigan's Pete Elliott, who,
with Harrison, formed an All-
Michigan honor guard tandem
last season, dropped clear down
to honorable mention this time.

Short splashes from the Wes-
tern Conference swimming meet...
Michigan's third place finish
was the lowest the Wolverines
have finished in 25 years . .. not
seventeen as originally reported.
DICK WEINBERG was easily
the outstanding performer of the
meet from a Michigan standpoint
the Wolverine co-captain not
only won the 50-yd. free style in
a mild upset, but he was the only
man in the meet capable of push-
ing Wally Ris, Iowa's Olympic
champion . . . Dick was right at
Ris' shoulders in the 100-yd. free
style and he actually gained
ground on him on the free style
relay anchor leg.
Matt Mann III also showed
well as he stroked to a second
and two thirds . . . his time in

ing Big Nine short pool record

Iof Illinois.

Another returning letterman,
Fred Otto, is seeded third on

senior, dons the Maize and Blue
for the third time as does Don
McKay, number four man on
the squad.
Close on his heels, is the fifth

and teamed up with Bill Miku-

Pucksters End Best Season
With Wins Over Engineers

AFTER A HOT AND COLD season, which made Michigan fans
begin to wonder what had happened to the Conference Cham-
pionship team Ozzie Cowles left behind, when he took off for the
Northlands of Minnesota, the Wolverine cagers caught fire last
night and came through with the finest performance by a Michigan
hardwood squad in the past two years.
And though it may be easier to say now, after the licking
administered to the Illini, it was all premeditated. "We got to-
gether yesterday afternoon and decided to win this one for
Ernie," Mack Suprunowicz said last night in a dressing room
that would have made Noah Webster look for a new adjective
to describe.
Michigan's feline of the hardwoods explained, "We were the
champs last year and. to say the least, were disappointed with our
showing this season. So we decided to beat Illinois for the greatest
coach in the world. Ernie certainly deserves every bit of credit that
comes his way."
Supey had a lot to say about the silver-thatched McCoy, who
was off in a corner surrounded by a mob of well-wishers. But it was
another case of words not quite speaking as loudly as action. With
18 points, Suprunowicz paced the Wolverine attack with an assort-
ment of shots that recalled the performance of an Iowa cager just
about a year back-the amazing Murray Weir;
But it wasn't all Su.cy. When I finally pushed my way
through to McCoy, he was too overcome to speak. He finally
said, "That's the greatest gang a coach could ever have. You
can't single out any one man-they all played their hearts out."
Beaming broadly, Ernie nodded at his charges and said, "Those
boys are still the 'Champions of the West'."
Bob Harrison, whose 17 markers was second only to Suprunowicz'
effort, called last night's iius"t "the game I'll always remember.'"
It was the final cage appearance for the Wolverine sharpshooter and
probably one of his finest. The other half of Michigan's top-notch
guard duo felt just about the same way.
Pete Elliott, who has now Nicked up 11 letters at the U. of M.,
was hanging up his cage suit for the lasttime. "I'm glad we won
this one-and it was all for the greatest guy a fellow could have for
a coach, Ernie McCoy. I guess I enjoyed playing in this game more
than any other one.

I

ncr of Northwestern shaved 3 1
seconds from the mark . . . Gus
Stager was also under the record
as the boys played havoc with
the record books.
Keith Carter of Purdue was
easily the outstanding man in
the meet . . . his 2:16.4 in the
breaststroke has only been topped
by one man, the amazing Joe!
Verdeur... not even Verdeur has'
touched his record in the indi-
vidual medley though . . . that
one belongs strictly to Carter.
DESPITE ALL this Carter was
halted at the pool door while an
attendant checked his partici-
pant's pass . . . at his own poal
yet . . . what price glory?
Rog Ahlman, Minnesota's
good backstroker, soundly ber-
ated Wolverine Bernie Kahn
who he claimed has been his
jinx all season . . . Kahn who
beat him by an eyelash in a
duel meet this season edged the
Gopher star by two-tenths of a
second to take the last qualify-
ing place in the backstroke ...
Johnny McCarthy, Michigan
free styler, knows how Ahlman
feels . . . he missed qualifying
in the 440 by four-tenths of a
second.

Ohio loses Bill Smith,
Hirose, Jack Calhoun and
Knight from this year's
while Iowa loses nearly
whole team.

Pounding out 7-1 and 8-3 vic-
tories over Michigan Tech last
weekend, Michigan's Colorado-
bound hockey team more than
avenged its only loss of the sea-
son, a 6-2 defeat at the hands of
the Huskies.
With their double victory, the
Wolverines finished the year with
a record of 18 victories, as against
three ties and the loss to Tech.
It was their best effort in Mich-
igan's 27 years of intercollegiate
hockey.
* * *
THEIR PREVIOUS best was last
season when the Maize and Blue
won 16, tied one and lost two in
addition to the two victories that
brought the NCAA crown to Ann
Arbor.
Although the regular season
ended with the Tech series,
coach Vic Ileyliger announced
that the Wolverines would play
the Sarnia hockey club in a
final tune-up for the 1919 NCAA
tourney.
The game will give Michigan its
last chance for competitive action
before plunging into the three-

day tournament grind, and should
find the Wolverines razor sharp.
SARNIA, an Ontario Senior "B"
team, will bring a strong squad
to Ann Arbor for the game. Its
best line is currently in action in
the IAHL playoffs, but they will
be ready for the Friday game and
may cause the Wolverines a lot of
trouble.
Michigan holds a 4-2 edge rec-
ord over the Canadian squad
and the last time the two teams
met, the Wolverines set a scor-
ing record winning 16-2.
For the fourth successive year,
Gordie McMillan captured the
Michigan scoring championship,
piling up 22 goals and 32 assists
for a 54 point total. Wally Grant
and Wally Gacek each notched
42 points to tie for second.
GACEK LED the team in goals
with 26, adding 16 assists for his
total, while Grant was scoring
17 times and received 25 assists,
Following down the line in clost'
order were Gil Burford with 41
points, Neil Celley with 39 and Al
Renfrew with 35.
