Untried M' Cagers Drop Opener to Miami,
By GEORGE FLINT
Miami University parlayed a
basketball two-platoon system.in-
to a ragged but decisive victory
o v e r Michigan's inexperienced
Wolverines at Yost Fieldhouse last
The score was 44-36.
POOR REBOUNDING and slop-
py ball-handling on the part of
the Maize and Blue enabled the
Redskins to take a half-time lead
of 25-20, and successfully hold off
the Wolverines' sporadic rallies to
win going away.
The Redskins started a quin-
tet of seniors who build up a
lead of 18-14 with 8 minutes to
play in the first half.
Then Coach John Brickels sent
in five sophs, including a rugged
(6' 7", 260 pounds) center named
Dick Wells, and the Wolverines
were held to six points for the
remainder of the period.
Michigan fared no better in the
second half, as the scrappy Miami
sophomores took the ball away
from Ernie McCoy's men time and
time again to stay four or six
points ahead for most of the last
LEO VANDERKUY, the Wolver-
the Redskins some trouble at the
ines' top scorer with 15 points, gave
start of the period with a field
goal and two free throws.
But then Redskin yearling
Don Knodel, a cool-playing
guard, heated up the Miami at-
tack with three field goals on;
a lay-up, set shot, and one-
hander, and from then on the
issue was never in doubt.
With Knodel upping his high to-
tal for Miami to 11 points with a
free throw and field goal with a
minute and a half left to go, the
Wolverine cause was lost as the
Redskins took a 44-35 lead. Paul

its final point.
Chuck Murray, the Michigan
captain, played well along with
Vanderkuy, and looked better than
most of the Wolverines in their
man-to-man defense. Murray had
Miami's veteran five employed a
zone, while Brickels' sophomore
quintet switched to a man-to-man.

Oklahoma, the country's top
ranking eleven in the final As-
sociated Press poll of the season,
crushed the Oklahoma Aggies, 41-
14, for their 31st consecutive vic-
tory and Southern California up-
set Notre Dame, 9 to 7, on a third
period blocked punt that rolled
out of the end zone for an auto-
matic safety, yesterday.
The Oklahoma Aggies held Ok-
lahoma to a 7-7 first period dead-
lock before 33,000 at Stillwater,
Okla., but then yielded four touch-

Sugar Bowl-bound Sooners were
sparked by Claude Arnold who
tossed four touchdown passes.
