Blues Turn On Heat in Final

Two Periods for 6-4 Win
Pucksters Blow Early 3-1 Lead; Visitors'
Stout Defense Holds 'M' at Bay 46 Minutes

Special to The Daily
EAST LANSING - Michigan
State came up with their carbon
copy of last month's victory over
Michigan's field goal-deficient
cagers, to punch out a 43-32 deci-
sion here last night.
' Led by the deadly shooting of
forward Bill Bower, who netted 17
points for the evening, the Spar-
tans were never behind in the
slowly played ball game.
THE AIMLESS Wolverines, who
have had trouble hitting the hoop
throughout the season, sank to a
new low. State's tight defense held
the Michiganders to two baskets
in the first half while running up
a 21-11 intermission lead.
In the second period Michigan
fared slightly better, making
five buckets in an apparently
futile cause. All in all, the Wol-
verines sank seven out of 43
shots for a poor 17 per cent.
sOn the other hand, MSC con-
nected on 17 of 52 shots for a com-
-.mendable .327 average. Bower,
high point man, paced the Spartan
attack in this department, hitting
on six of nine tries, four in the
first half.
CONTRARY TO last Monday's
performance against Minnesota, in
".which Michigan played an ener-
getic, exciting type of ball, last
night the cagers looked dull and
7 listless against State.
Doug Lawrence and Sticks
Williams, who contributed much
in the Gopher conquest, were
unable to provide the Wolver-
w ines with any scoring punch.
Lawrence dumped in a couple of
free throws for a two point eve-
ning total, while Williams sank
five charity tosses as his night's
work.
Big Leo VanderKuy, the chief
point getter for Michigan this sea-
son, was held to seven points, yet
he topped all his teammates by
two markers. Leo made the quin-
tet's first basket after ten minutes
of the initial stanza had gone by.
* * *
FOR MOST of the first half
Michigan employed a zone defense
in an effort to keep MSC from us-
ng pick-off plays, but with Bower

hitting from out Coach Ernie Mc-
Coy changed to a man-to-man de-
fense. It didn't prove to be par-
ticularly effective either, however.
Michigan State's victory gave
them a clean sweep of the two
game season series, which is the
first time this has happened
since 1934.
Bob Carey, the Spartans' foot-
ball player who doubles in basket-
ball, was also off form last night.
Carey was held to one point.
* * *
MICHIGAN was constantly tied
up under the backboards by the
State defense. On many other oc-
casions the aggressive Spartans
stole the ball from their taller
opponents.
The loss to State was Michi-
gan's seventh in Western Con-
ference Competition as against a
mere two wins, embedding it
more firmly in the number eight
spot. Only Purdue and Ohio
State have lost more ball games
in Big Ten play.
The win gave Michigan State a
5-5 Conference record and a 10-6
record for the season. Michigan
posses a 6-11 overall record for the
year.

MICHIGAN PLAYERS SCRAMBLE FOR ELUSI VE PUCK (ARROW) NEAR TORONTO NET.
Natators Blast Bowlig Gre en

By BOB ROSENMAN
Michigan's puckmen ran into a
stone-wall defense at the Coli-
seum last night and went down
in defeat at the hands of an in-
spired Toronto University sextet,
6-4.
There were no alibis about the
defeat inflicted on the Wolverines.
The Blues outskated, outshot, and
outpassed the Maize and Blue
pucksters, capitalized on Michi-
gan's errors, and built up such a
mass of manpower around their
goal that the Wolverines never
really got a clear shot at the net
in the last 45 minutes of the
game.
DURING ONE stretch in the
game, Michigan was held without
a goal for 46 minutes. Doug Orr,
Toronto goalie, stopped only 4
Michigan shots in the second
period.
Toronto's offensive power, on
the other hand, was less sensa-
tional, but more consistent.
Their passing in the Michigan
zone was sharp and accurate,
and those Toronto shots which
resulted in goals were from so
close in that Michigan goalie
Hal Downes had almost no
chance to stop them.
Early in the first period, how-
ever, the picture was much dif-
ferent. The Wolverines jumped
off to a 2-0 lead on a pair of
brilliant goals by Neil Celley.
CELLEY SKATED in all alone
from Toronto's blue line, got
around one defenseman and slip-
ped the puck past the outfaked
Blues' net-minder, and 80 sec-
onds later he poked in a rebound
to make it 2-0.
When John McKennell tallied
on another fine solo dash at the
7-minute mark to make it 3-0,
most of the almost 4,000 fans
sat back, expecting a repetition
of Friday evening's 9-5 Michi-
gan triumph.
But unlike most teams, Toronto,
champion of all Canadian univer-
sity hockey teams this year, did
not give up. Seven minutes after
McKennell's tally, Norm Fox
pushed in a rebound to make it
3-1 and just 33 seconds later Pete
Vernon ended the scoring for the
first period as his shot trickled.

through a maze of players and
into the Michigan goal.
* * *
THE BLUES tallied 3 more
times in the second period while
the Wolverines went scoreless.
Coach Vic Heyliger of Michigan
sent out 5 forwards, Celley, Mc-
Kennell, Gil Burford, John Mat-
chefts, and Earl Keyes, but even"
Michigan's top scoring aces could
not flash the -red light over the
Toronto goal.
The third period was a repeat
of the second. The Wolverines
fought viciously. Their bodycheck-
ing was ferocious as every man
put out his utmost to narrow the
gap.
e e e
WITH LESS than 7 minutes
left in the final period, Matchefts
made it 5-4, Toronto, with a beau-
tiful shot while sliding across the
later Fox tallied again for Tor-
onto to ice the game, the final
score reading: 6-4.

Makes Second During Easy 48-32 Victory

15 Foot Vault
NEW YORK-(iP)-Bob Rich-
ards, the vaulting vicar from La
Verne, Calif., cleared 15 feet in
the pole vault for the second time
this season and Fred Wilt captured
his first major mile run in 4:09.4 at
the National AAU Track and Field
Championships last night.
Actually, the jump was not
Richards' best. Earlier in the sea-
son he soared over 15 feet 1 inch.
But he still is only the second man
in history to make 15 feet or bet-
ter. Cornelius Warmerdam holds
the world's record of 15 feet 8 /2
inches. Richards missed 15-4 three
times.

BIG TEN ROUNDUP:

Special to The Daily
BOWLING GREEN, OHIO -
Setting five new records enroute,
Michigan's swimming team rolled
to an easy 48-32 win over Bowling
Green University here yesterday
afternoon.
Opening wth two decisive wins
in the 300-yard medley relay and
220-yard free style, the visitors
built up a commanding lead on
a plucky Bowling Green squad
that nevertheless was troubled by
lack of depth. The Maize and
Blue's Berny Kahn and Stu El-
liott, with Dave Neisch anchoring
ripped off a 2:55.0 medley relay
to eclipse the old pool time, set
by the M.S.C. trio in 1949, by more
than seven seconds.
THE COHORTS of Matt Mann
scored again in the 220-yard free
style as Wally Jeffries and Bob
Byberg outlasted Bowling Green's
Bob Sheaver, Jeffries finally win-
ning in the excellent time of
2:14.0, erasing .9 second from the
pool record.
Bowling Green got some re-
venge in the 50-yard free style,
with the Tiger's Woddfill and
Kepler placing one-two over
Johnny Reis and Bill Regel in
23.9.
Jim Hartman, Michigan's sen-
ior diver, scored 347.55 points to
take the diving competition.
* * *
KEPLER OF Bowling Green
again raised the hopes of the
home crowd as he edged out
Michigan's Dick Martin, in the
100 yard free style in :53.4.
The Wolverines q u i c k I y
nipped that hope in the bud, as
Dick Howell finished a quarter
of a length ahead of the near-

est man in the 200-yard back
stroke event, winning in 2:20.4.
In the 200-yard breast stroke,
John Davies and Elliott of Michi-
gan ran a very tight race with
each other, Davies winning by a
whisker in 2:19.0,
* * *
LUIS CHILD ran off his usual
440-yard free style victory for
Michigan
At the meet's beginning, Sam-
uel Cooper, Bowling Green swim-
ming coach, after an address
which hit the highlights of Matt
Mann's remarkable career as
swimming mentor at Michigan
and elsewhere, presented on be-
half of his team a Varsity blanket
in the Bowling Green colors, in-
scribed: "To Matt Mann for his
contribution to swimming, from
the 1951 Bowling Green Swim-
