four wins-three over Confer-
ence foes and the other over
Michigan State - since the
middle of January.,
The Wolverines played the
Northwestern cagers twice in the
between semester holidays, ancu
took both contests from the claw-
less Wildcats.
MICHIGAN copped, its first
Conference win of the season
against Northwestern here 53-40,
on January 15, but were none too
impressive. They 'managed to out-
shoot the Wildcats and that was
about all. Michigan clicked on
22 per cent of its shots while
Northwestern made 18 per cent.
The most encouraging factor
of this game was the appearance
of Mach Suprunowicz in the
role of point-maker for about
the first time this season. He
puiled up 15 counters to lead the
Maize and Blue offense.

Coach Ernie McCoy made two
changes in the starting line-up
for this game, and the combina-
tion proved to be just what the
ailing cagers needed. VanderKuy
took over the starting center posi-
tion and played a brilliant game.
