Carabins Ice 'M' Streak
In Rough Contest, 3-2

4 Special to The Daily
CHAMPAIGN, Ill. - A disas-
trous first ten minutes proved to
be the downfall of a fighting band
of Wolverine cagers as they drop-
ped a 68-47 decision to a formid-
able Illini five last night.
Illinois, standing atop the con-
ference heap with a 4-0 record,
raced to a 20-4 lead while Michi-
gan floundered in the opening
minutes, and maintained a com-
fortable 20 point spread through-
out most of the contest.
* * *
TOM TIERNAN set the pace
for his teammates by missing on
his first ten shots, which should
stand as a record, of some sort.
But Tiernan was not entirely
alone in this department, the team
r as a whole averaging a miserable
.188 the first half.
Illinois, on the other hand,
hit on a commendable 31 per
cent of their shots during the
t same time. The difference of
shooting eyes enabled the Illini
to compile a 38-21 half time
lead.
Big Leo VanderKuy paced the
Wolverine quintet with 13 points,
followed by Murray's 12, but both

latter used their advantage to
great success. Time after time
the Wolverines would get only
one shot, while their opponents
took many by control of the
boards.
ONCE AGAIN Michigan gave
ground to its opponent at the free
Detroit Jinx
Prevails as
Rangers Fall
Montreal Wins,
MapleLeafs Tie
By The Associated Press.
DETROIT-The Detroit Red
Wings maintained their home ice
jinx over the New York Rangers
as they won 4-2 last night, getting
three of their goals while the
losers were shorthanded on penal-
ties. A crowd of 13,186 saw the Na-
tional Hockey League battle.
The Rangers thus failed for the
fifth time this season to grab a
victory on Olympia ice as they
were hurt repeatedly by penalties.
Thirteen were callecd, eight against
New York -in the fairly rough
game. Metro Prystai was the big
gun in the Wings' attack as he
paced the NHL leaders with a
pair of goals and an assist.
Ranger goalie Chuck Rayner
had a hectic night with 32 saves
while Detroit's Terry' Sawchuk
piled up 19.
* * *
TORONTO-The last-place Chi-
cago Black Hawks came from be-
hind last night to earn a 3-3 tie
with Toronto in a National Hockey
League game before 13,524 fans.
The Hawks, who haven't won
a game now in 13 starts, cut
down a two-goal lead the {Leafs
built up in the first half of
the game to achieve the tie-.
the third in their winless string.
Veteran Adam Brown starred
for Chicago. He fired the tieing
goal in the last period.
* * S
MONTREAL - The Montreal
Canadiens shut out the Boston
Bruins, 4-0, last night before a
crowd of 14,438 and took a firmer
hold on third place in the Nation-
al Hockey League race.
It was the fourth straight win
for Canadiens and the sixth
shutout of the season for goalie
Gerry McNeil to put him even
with Terry Sawchuk of Detroit.
Maruce Richard counted one of
Montreal's goals for his 2-7th of
the season and had an assist on a
goal scored by Bert Olmstead. The
other scorers were Glen Harmon
and Floyd Curry.

throw line. The poor floor' aver-
age was carried over as the aim-
less Wolverines hit on only 17 of
36 charity tosses, slightly under
50 per cent.
The Illini fared better in that
department, but not by much.
They were able to sink 18 of 31
gift shots.
Michigan had trouble in ball
handling and control. On many
occasions the ever alert Illini
swiped the ball'to go dashing
down court for a setup. Other
times they would intercept errant
passes, which did a great deal to
destroy what little poise Michigan
possessed.
* * *
TWO, OF THE cagers almost
didn't make it to Champaign.
Captain Charlie Murray and for-
ward Tom Tiernan missed the
train when their alarm clock fail-
ed to go off in the morning.
The perplexed youths then
hopped a plane to Chicago and
took a train to Kankakee, Tier-
nan's home town. Tiernan's
parents drove the pair to Cham-
paign, where they arrived five,
minutes after their teammates'
arrival.
Coach Ernie McCoy, who was
already justly concerned over the
game,,spent a hectic trip figuring
out possible, replacements for his;
wandering charges.-
The Michigan quintet now
heads for the Twin Cities, where
tomorrow night they face Whitey
Skoog and company in another
conference clash. The Minnesota,
aggregation manhandled Purdue,
last night, 78-55, for its second
win as against one loss.
After the Illinois debacle, Mich-
igan now has a 1-3 record in Con-
ference competition.

By JIM PARKER
It wasn't what you would have
called an era, that Michigan nine-
game hockey victory string, but
it was kinda nice-while it lasted.
Then came Montreal's Carabins
and things started to happen.
Friday night an 8-8 tie, and the
victory string changed to an un-
defeated streak. Last night it
came to a complete end - the
score, 3-2, Montreal.
THE KILLING PACE of Friday
night's game was something that
couldn't have been expected to
hold over. And it didn't; but it
was still a terrific game and there
was a standing-room-only crowd
to see it.
In the final analysis it seem-
ed that the previous evening's
contest had taken too much out
of the Wolverines, leaving the
Michigan offense lacking the
precision of past games.
The Wolverines seemed- to be
able to do everything except con-
nect on the scoring plays, and
that was it.
WITH 40 SECONDS left in the
game, Coach Vic Heyliger pulled
Hal Downes out of the nets and
put six forwards on the ice in a
final attempt to get the tying
goal. But it was to no avail.
In the Michigan goal Downes
played a terrific game, by far
the best that Ann Arbor fans
have seen from him.,
He came up with 27 saves in
the game and some of them were
real gems.
The first period was unevent-
ful. Michigan at one time held y
a ,two - man advantage, but
couldn't do anything about it.
The second period began with
Montreal's Jean Vernier left over
in the penalty box from the pre-
ceding frame. And what hap-
pened In the next minute and a

quarter was appalling, to say the
least.
* * *
DESPITE THE one-man disad-
vantage, the Carabins scored two
quick goals before the Wolverines
knew what was coming off.
Andre Charest, Friday's one-
man scoring parade (five goals),
started the proceedings when
he stole the puck on Michigan
ice and sailed off for the Mich-
igan goal, quite alone. Downes
didn't have a chance.
Forty-three seconds later Ray
Flynn scored on a fiendish play
that they still haven't figured out.
He shot from 20 feet out and the
puck hit two or three. skates be-
fore trickling through.
* * *
NEIL CELLEY put 'Michigan
back in the game at 9:20 on a
beautiful goal that saw the Cel-
ley passing to John Matchefts in
front of the Montreal goal' and
then converting on Matcheft's
fast return pass.
Burford connected on a solo
clash at 14:14 and the period end-
ed, 2-2.
Forty seconds was all the Cara'
bins needed in the final stanza.
Georges Emblem drew the Michi-
gan defense over, setting up jean
Bruneau for an open shot at the
nets. Bruneau iced it-as well as
the game.

MICHIGAN used a switching
mnan-to-man defense in an ef-
fort to hold down the high scor-
ing Indian aggregation, which up
t last 'night had averaged better
than 70 points a tilt, but the stra-
tegy backfired.
The smooth - working ball

tricky pickoff plays and a fast

sions. Don Sunderlage was the
thorn in Michigan's side in
these manuevers.

EAST LANSING, Mich. - Indi-
ana led all the way and looked
good while beating Michigan State
47-37 in a Western Conference
basketball tilt watched by 10,254
here last'.night.
The Hoosiers showed all the
class that made this their ninth
win in ten starts and has made
them one of the leading contend-
ers for the Big Ten title.
* * * -
MICHIGAN STATE only kept
the score down by close guarding
and careful ball-handling. But the
Spartans couldn't break past the
tight defense under .the Indiana
basket and when they were shoot-
ing they weren't hitting.
Free throws helped Indiana as
the visitors made 21 out of 30
gift shots to 13 out of 24 for
Michigan State. From the floor
Indiana had 13 in 40 tries to 12
in 55 for'the Spartans.
Guard Gene Ring led the Hoo-
sier attack with 12 points although
all the regulars were scoring. Bill
Garrett, Indiana center, was the
handyman to get the rebounds
from the backboard and on the
free throw line where he account-
ed for six of his eight points.
GARRETT WAS the only Hoo-
sier who played nearl:" a whole
game as thed forwards and guards
were given frequent relief under
a shuttle system of substitution.
Michigan State trailed 12-3 at
the ten minute point and 23-12
at the half and only made four?
baskets in the first half.
Forward Bill Bower made the
first MSC basket within three
minutes gone. But it was 13 min-
utes later in the first half before
the Spartans scored again from
the floor.

MICHIGAN STATE perked up
in the second half but Indiana
kept well ahead. The Hoosier led
30-17 with ten minutes to go and
the score of 44-30 with three min-
utes to go reflected nearly the
same margin.
Centers Bob Carey and Ray
Steffen, with 12 and 10 points
respectively, were the only Spar,
tans who could do much scor-
ing. Bower with four points was
third high man.
The loss was the third for the
Spartans against five wins and

NEW YORK-Ezzard Charles,
fresh from a 10-round victory over
Lee Oma Friday night, yesterday
signed for his seventh defense of
his world heavyweight boxing title
when he agreed to meet Jersey
Joe Walcott in Detroit, March 7.
James D. Norris, president of
the International Boxing Club,

celebrate his 37th birthday the
last day of this month, has had
six fights, winning five.
His lone defeat came at the
hands of Rex Layne of Lewiston,
Utah, who surprised by winning a
unanimous ten round decision in
Madison Square Garden last No-
veinber.

Charles either stopped or knocked
out Gus Lesnevich, Pat Valentine,
Freddie Beshore, Nick Barone and
Oma.
The latter was stopped last
* night in a dull bout.
