THE OHIO State squad grabbed
another record as they dumped in
Confearnc
Track, Meet
Rated Close
By BILL CONNOLLY
Michigan's 62-52 track victory
over Ohio State was expected last
Saturday night, but the surprise
of the meet was provided by the
unexpected strength shown by the
Buckeyes.
After the meet, Michigan's
coach, Don Canham, stated that:
"Ohio looked very strong tonight
..They will be tougher than we
expected in the Conference meet."
REFERRING to the Big Ten
Championships scheduled for this
week-end, Canham added: "I
doubt, however, that Ohio will
beat Illinois."
The real issue to- be decided
next Saturday afternoon, how-
ever, is not the Buckeyes' chance
of preventing Leo Johnson from
coaching the Illini to their third
indoor crown in five years.
Typical of Big Ten Champion-
ship contests, the meet is rapidly
shaping up as another Michigan-
Illinois slugfest, with the Illini
given the edge.
* * *
THERE IS however, some dif-
ference between dual meet and
Championship competition which
warrants further attention.
The Wolverines were taught
two weeks ago that second. and
third place points can win dual
meets, when a 10 point victory
margin registered by the Illini,
was held together by the 9 points
scored by Johnson's men who
finished third in all but two of
the events.

25 of 82 shots to maintain a shoot-
ing average of over 32% for the
Season.
VanderKuy, playing perhaps
his best game of the season, led
the Wolverine pointgetters with
a 19 point entry and worked
well all night.
Skala and Wisniewski, two sur-
prise starters; came through with
excellent performances and scored
13 and 11 points, respectively. Ska-
la dug well for the ball on re-
bounds and was a full game per-
former.
CAPTAIN Mack Suprunowicz
was handicapped by a leg injury
received in the Northwestern game
Saturday and saw only limited
action.
Operating with a zone defense,
the Wolverines opened up the
game with a fast scoring spree
that gave them a 9-3 margin in
the first four minutes. Ohio
State, sparked by Fred Taylor
who scored eight of their first
nine points, moved ahead .17-16
after eight minutes had elapsed.
Michigan managed to grab the
lead for only a few seconds for the
rest of the half but managed to
stay close to the Bucs and left the
floor at half trailing, 39-35.
FOLLOWING the halftime rest
the Wolverines continued to press
the Buckeyes and tied the score
several times until the ,victors
launched their final scoring surge.
Schnittker netted ten points in the
Buckeye splurge in the last ten
minutes.
Fred Taylor who kept the Ohio
Staters in the game in the early
minutes with his set shots
against the Wolverine zone was
second in the scoring column
for the Bucs with 16 points
while Burkholder contributed
ten.
The setback was Michigan's
eighth in 11 conference starts and
drops them into a cellar tie' with
Purdue. The Wolverines face the
Boilermakers here Saturday night
in the final basketball game of the
season.
Buckshot

LEADS LOSERS-Leo VanderKuy, Michigan center, counted 19
points in yesterday's losing battle with the Buckeyes of Ohio
State, the conference champions. VanderKuy was superb off the
backboards, also, and his play highlighted the Wolverine effort °
to upset the high scoring Columbus point machine-an effort
which fell before a 69-58 onslaught. While the lanky Leo was
leading the Maize and Blue, Buckeye Dick Schnittker was the
game's top scorer with 23 points.

OSU Defeat.
Sprs'
Mat Squad
By JERRY BALBUS
"One of the finest victories in
Michigan's wrestling history."
That's the way Coach Cliff Keen
summed up his mat team's victory
over previously unbeaten Ohio
State this past week-end.
STARTING THE season with
only two lettermen, and with six
of the eight starters never having
had any high school wrestling ex-
perience, Coach Keen has built
a squad which finds itself as one
of the top contenders for the Big
Ten mat title.
Continually practicing and
competing with an unbeatable
spirit, the team finished the year
with a commendable record of
eight wins and two losses.
One of those victories was a
surprising upset over the United
States Naval Academy squad
which had been beaten only once
in their last sixty-three starts.
* * *
THE WOLVERINE MATMEN
also handed a defeat to Purdue,
who is the Conference's defending
champs and still in the midst of
the fight this season.
Most of the team's scoring
punch has been coming from the
lighter weight classes, with its
sophomore trio leading the way.
Larry Nelson at 128, Dave Space
at 136, and Bill Stapp at 155 have
all been consistent winners for the
grappling squad.
Badgers Second
MADISON, WIS.- (A') -Wis-
consin assured itself of undisputed
second place in final Big Ten bas-
ketball standings last night, whip-
ping Northwestern, 67-53, while
Indiana toppled Illinois, 80-66.
The Badgers, winding up their
home campaign, held a narrow 26-
24 halftime lead but took over.
complete control of the game in
the second half to win easily.

Matt Mann finished licking the
wounds inflicted in last Saturday's
disastrous dual meet against Ohio
State yesterday, and started feed-
ing his swimmers raw meat in
preparation for the Western Con-
ference Swimming championships
which begin in Ann Arbor this
Thursday and carry on through
the weekend.
The Wolverines are undergoing
intensive practice this week with
the hopes of giving the favored
Buckeyes a little of their own med-
icine.
SATURDAY'S DEFEAT left
Michigan with a season dual meet
record of four wins and two losses.
The Buckeyes, who are considered
very strong favorites to retain the
Big Ten championships, were un-

Michigan the underdog: The
other Conference teams are not
given much of a chance to pull
any startling upsets.
As shown in Saturday's meet,
the Buckeyes have a powerful
group, long on talent and with a
lot of depth. Most of their team
are sophomores and juniors and
are expected to give the Confer-
ence a lot of trouble for some
time to come.

BUT THE POINT to be made
here is that those nine third-place
points that the Illini scored in the
dual meet will probably not be
tallied in the Conference Champ-
ionships.

After sweeping a- two - game
series with Minnesota's not-so-
Golden Gophers, 7-3 and 6-2, the
Michigan hockey team returned
to Ann Arbor with its third
straight bid to the NCAA champ-
ionship play-oifs definitely as-
sured.
With the Wolverines in posses-
sion of one of the two bids to rep-
resent the West in the tourna-
ment to be played at Colorado
SpringsaMarch 16, 17 and 18. four
teams are still in contention for
the remaining berth.
OF THESE FOUR, either North
Dakota or Colorado College seem
most likely to complete the West's
representation that will meet the
two best teams from the Eastern
and New England States for the
championship of American college
hockey.
Minnesota and Michigan Tech
still stand an outside chance in
the Western Division, with the
outcome of two-game series this
week-end at Colorado and Mich-
igan respectively to be the de-
ciding factors of their chances.

Villanova Refuses
Code Compliance
VILLANOVA, PA. - Villanova
College can not comply with the
National Collegiate Athletic Asso-
ciation's Sanity Code in its present
form, Rev. Father Francis X.
N. Maguire, O.S.A., President of
the school, said today.
Villanova was one of seven
schools charged by the NCAA with
violating the Sanity Code. Since
the NCAA's annual meeting last
month Boston College has re-
turned to the good graces of the
national organization and the Cit-
adel has withdrawn its member-
ship.

didn't leave the Wolverines un-
scathed. Team Capt. Wally Grant
and wing Lennie Brumm both sus-
tained injuries that leave their
playing in the Michigan Tech
games this week-end uncertain.
S * ,*
GRANT INJURED his knee in
the first period of Saturday
night's game and was forced to
retire for the evening. In the same
period Brumm was struck on the
ankle by a flying puck but was not
bothered by the injury until after
the game.
Wingman Joe Marmo got his
teammates praise for the best
goal of the evening when he
wound up and fired away in the
third period. The puck bounced
and rolled crazily towards the
Gopher goal and wiggled through
net tender Bob Moran's legs.
In the previous night's tussle
Neil Celley was robbed of his
fourth "hat trick" of the current
-ampaign when he swept in on the
Minnesota goal and lifted a screen
shot between two Gopher defense-
men.
THE PUCK got by Moran and
flew into the rigging for a perfect
goal. But the wily puck kept on
going and shot through a hole in
the Minnesota nets. After a
lengthy discussion the referees dis-
allowed the goal and Celley had to
settle for a two-goal performance
for the evening.
