3AA CAGE FINALS:
:alamazoo Grabs 3rd Straight Title

Michigan's 1950-1951
Season Hockey Record

Detroit St. Andrew whipped an
outclassed Marlette entry, 52 to
26 in the Class C. final of the
State High School Basketball
Championship to become the first
Detroit team to take home a prep
championship in ten years.
The last time the Motor City
came through was in 1941 when
Detroit St. Theresa won the
Class B crown.
Outcome of the game, first of
the four finals, was obvious by the
time the score mounted to two
figures. St. Andrew was ahead,
13-6 at the quarter, extended the
lead to 23-11 by the half and had
a comfortable 32-18 margin at the
three quarter mark.
The classy St. Andrew combina-
tion of guard Jerry Olesko and
center Frank Tanana carried the
game for the Detroit invaders.
Olesko was high man with 18
points and Tanana dropped in 16
points for the cause."
CLASS D
BRIMLEY 74, DIMONDALE 31
The Brimley Bays, a polished
gfoup of perfectionists from the
Upper Peninsula, played almost
flawless basketball to rout Dkmon-
dale 74-31 and hang on to the
Class D high school crown.
The first half was a good indi-
cation of the strength of the twpo
teams. Brimley led 40-13 at the
breather, all five men getting into
the act for 17 buckets with free
throws making up the difference.
The only man to score for Di-
mondale in the half was forward
Ken Burns with 13 points on five
baskets and three free throws.
Burns was high for his outfit with
15 points although he went out
with five fouls toward the end of
the third quarter.

Net Mentors Schedule Clinic
At Sports Building Saturdkay.

Tennis coaches in duplicate will
be one of the features of the ath-
letic department's tennis clinic for
high school coaches and physical
education students next Saturday
at the Sports Building.
Spectators may think they're
seeing double when two of the
country's better collegiate net
mentors, the brothers Murphy,
take the court and the speaking
platform.
* *
ONE OF THE MURPHYS is well
known to Michigan tennis fans.
He's Bill, the popular coach of the
Wolverines. The other is his twin
brother Chet, coach at the Univer-
sity of Chicago and an excellent
player in his own right at one
time.

The two brothers will be
among scheduled speakers which
include Jean Hoxie, the well-
known instructor for Ham-
tramck's'star-studded group of
players and Prof. Robert Dixon,
now a teacher in the School of
Education.
The clinic is intended to serve a
long-felt need for high school and
prospective public tennis instruc-
tors. Group instruction and par-
ticular problems in coaching will
hold major positions of interest in
the program.
* * *
WITH THE CLINIC coming up
next Saturday, and daily practice
sessions for his players, Coach
Murphy finds his hands full these
days.
The Michigan team will see its
first action of the season during
a vacation tour of southern uni-
versities. With an inexperienced
squad except for his number one
and two men, Murphy hopes that
the succession of matches beneath
the balmy southern sun will throw
s o m e light on the potential
strength of his squad, which will be
out to attempt a duplication of last
year's excellent season's record.

Alert Michigan Defensemen
Play LargeRole in Victory
McKennell, Celley Score Two Goals Each
To Lead Potent Maize and Blue Offensive

(Continued from Page 1)
ey games throughout the season,
the Maize and Blue's highly-
touted offense came through in
fine fashion again.
Altogether, eight players shar-
ed scoring honors for Michigan
with Neil Celley and John Mc-
Kennell each scoring two goals.
The Wolverines front line of
Celley, Gil Burford, and John
Matchefts displayed far too
much speed for the Brown de-
fensemen.
The victory also broke a two-
year' old St. Patrick's Day "jinx"
for the Wolverines. In the last
two NCAA tourneys prior to this
one, Michigan was defeated on
St. Patrick's Day. But such was
not the case last night.
By virtue of the victory, Michi-
gan became the first team ever
to win the NCAA tournament.
twice since its inception in 1948.
The Wolverines won the title in
1948, finished third in 1949 and
1950 and came back to win the
title again last night.
THE WOLVERINES set anoth-
er record in their 7-1 win over
Brown. The Bruins, in being held
to only 1 goal, scored less goals
in the game than any team in the

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo.
-Boston University, paced by
Jack Garrity, this afternoon
won the consolation game of
the 1951 NCAA hockey tourna-
ment. The score of the game
was 7-4.
The Beantowners, who fell
victim to the Wolverines of
Michigan by an 8-2 count
Thursday evening, were at all
times in command and dis-
played sharp offensive play in
dealing Colorado College their
second defeat within 24 hours.
4-year history of the tournament.
The previous low had been set by
Michigan in their 4-2 loss to
Dartmouth in 1949.
The Wolverines jumped off
to a 1-0 lead early in the first
period, with Eddie May blast-
ing home the first tally of the
game.
Gordie Naylor skated in from
the left and let fly a hard shot at
Brown goalie Don Whiston. Whis-
ton made a good save on the
shot, but May slapped the puck
into the corner of the net from
about 5 feet out at 3:49.
* * *
WHISTON, who was peppered
with Michigan shots all night,
played one of the greatest games
ever seen in the NCAA tourna-
ment or in any collegiate hockey
game for that matter.

Time and time again he dove
to the ice to stop a loose puck,
and on other occasions he came
up with magnificent, saves to
squelch almost sure Michigan
goals. For his outstanding per-
formance, Whiston was award-
ed the Most Valuable Player
award for the tournament,
But there was no stopping Michi-
gan. Gil Burford tallied on one of
his "patented" breakaways at
15:24. "Burf" stole.a loose puck at
center ice and skated to within 10
feet of the Brown net, letting fly
a hard shot which caromed off
Whiston's stick into the net to
make it 2-0 at the end of the first
period.
Whiston had a tgtal of 15 saves-
in the first period to 5 for Downes.
BOB MALEY of Brown went off
for holding early in the second
period, and the Bruins missed two
open goal mouths during, the 2
minutes Maley was off the ice.
Celley again tallied for Michi-
gan at 6:49 on a beautiful shot.
He skated across the ice and,
while a few feet out from the net
and falling from a hard check by
Brown defenseman John Mur-
phy, pushed the puck past the
helpless Brown goaltender.
Just four minutes later, John
McKennell tallied on a solo. The
flashy redhead also shot the puck
past Whiston while off balance.
Al Bassey tallied on a fine passout
from Earl Keyes at 14:19 to end
second period scoring with the
count 5-0 Michigan. Downes had
only 4 saves to 18 for Whiston in
the second period.
* * *
IN THE FINAL period, the Wol-
verines let up a little and Tony
Malo of Brown tallied the! only
Bruin goal on a 12-footer from
Bob Wheeler. McKennell and Cel-
ley each got their second goals of
the evening to end the scoring.
