By TED PAPES
One of the worst seasons in
Michigan basketball history came
to a close in the Field House last
night when Iowa submerged the
Wolverines with a 65-55 decision.
A slim gathering of 1200 fans
saw the home team absorb its
eleventh loss in 14 Big Ten con-
tests, forcing a last place tie with
Ohio State.
IT WAS VICTORY number nine
for the Hawkeyes who finished in
third place behind Illinois and
Indiana.
Just as in the first meeting of
these two clubs earlier this year,
Iowa's advantage in height was
too much for Michigan. The
visiting captain, big 'Frank Cals-
beek, was the deciding factor as
he rolled up 24 points in addi-
tion to his backboard control
efforts.
He received excellent support in
both departments from his for-
ward running mate, Everett Coch-
rane, and giant Chuck Darling at
center.
* * *
FOR THE LOSERS three grad-
-,uating seniors put on a great show
in their futile effort to stem the
Hawkeye tide, Leo VanderKuy,
Captain Chuck Murray and Bob
Olson closed out their college
_ hardwood careers with ontstand-
ing performances.

VanderKuy battled his tow-
ering enemies almost on even
terms under the boards while
contributing 18 points to his
team's aggregate. Two of his
six field goals were storybook
attempts.
Murray had one of his best
nights from the standpoint of
scoring with 14 points. Six of
them were on free throws revers-
ing the slump he was in against
Indiana Saturday.
Olson fought every step of the
way until he was removed with a
minute to play and Michigan
hopelessly behind. His rebound-
ing helped the Wolverines rally
from a first half lethargy which
saw them score only one basket in;
112 minutes.
* * .
FROM THE outset Iowa's de-
fense allowed the losers single at-
tempts from the floor before tak-
ing over on rebounds. The trend
sent the Hawks into a 17-9 lead
before Tom Tiernan and Vander-
Kuy found theorange to close the
gap to 24-22 with four minutes left
in the half.
Three consecutive fielders by
Calsbeek and some timely shoot-
ing by Cochrane sent Iowa to
the dressing room with a 30-29
'margin.
Tiernan, Dick Williams and Jim
Skala began a second half drive
which VanderKuy capped with'
three straight successes to pull
Michigan into a 50-47 deficit, but
the Hawkeyes' big three had
enough power to rebuild the lead
into their 10 point final advantage.

DETROIT - (P) - The Detroit
Red Wings stretched their Na-
tional Hockey League lead to six
points with a 3 to 1 victory last
night over second-place Toronto
before Detroit's largest crowd of
the seasaon, 14,372 fans.
This key game in the NHL race
was a rugged body-checking con-
test with play usually saved for
the playoffs. Referee George
Gravel called only nine penalties
and two of them figured in the
scoring.
Detroit jumped to a 2-0 lead
while Tod Sloan was sitting out a
First-Period Trpiping foul. Glen
Skov connected three seconds
after the penalty, lining home Sid
Abel's pass from 30 feet out. A
minute later Gordie Howe tapped
a soft 10-footer through Turk
Broda's pads from Marty Pave-
lich's passout.

Special to The Daily
EAST LANSING - Michigan
State handed the Wolverines their
fourth straight conference gym-
nastics loss here last night by a
56-40 score.
Despite the usual high caliber
performances of Captain Ed Bu-
chanan, Con Ettl and Jeff Knight,
Michigan was unable to overcome
the severe lack of depth which
has plagued them all season.
TOP HONORS of the night
went to MSC's Bob Sout. Stout,
one of the finest all-around gym-
nasts the Wolverines have faced
all season, was first on the high
bar, the flying rings, the parallel
bars and in tumbling, and tied1

with Bob Checkley of Michigan
for third on the side horse.
Buchanan easily won the
trampoline event, followed by
Spartan Al Hannan, Stick Da-
vidson of the Maize and Blue,
MSC's John Walker and Jack
Rauton' of State. Reno Boila,
Wolverine trampolinist, sprain-
ed his ankle w h i 1 e going
through his routine, thus be-
coming the first Michigan gym-
nast to be injured during actual
competition this season.
Although Knight's side horse
victory gave the Wolverines an
early lead, State virtually swept
the high bar, flying rings and

parallel bars events. Michigan
scorers in 'those events were Ettl
and John Mills on the high bar,
Ettl and Mills on the flying rings
and Ettl and Wally Niemann on
the parallel bars.
* * *
TUMBING, previously Michi-
gan's weakest event, resulted in
a pleasant surprise. Wolverine
Fred Thompson was second to
Stout, followed by team mates
Mark Neville and Don Hurst who
tied for third.
The next Michigan dual meet
will be held with Wisconsin at
Madison on Mar. 17.
