By DICK LEWIS
The 1952 edition of the Michi-
gan Daily Big Ten All-Star bas-
ketball team looks more like a
small college football team at first
glance.
But a closer look at the five-man
first team, which averages over
6-4 in height and better than 192
pounds in brawn, reveals some of
the top cage figures in the coun-
try.
LEADING THIS outstanding
court combination, and the only
unanimous choice in the voting,
is Iowa's contribution to the Wes-
tern Conference record book, 6-8
Chuck Darling.
The rangy pivot star set five
new major individual standards,
tied one record and established
six Iowa marks to boot during
the past season.
Darling's achievements as the
greatest scoring weapon in Big
Ten history include most points
in one season (364), most points
in conference career (716), high-
est game average (26.0), most field
goals in one season (132), most
free throws in one season (100),
and most free throws in one game
(16).
IN ADDITION to these efforts,
the Dearborn senior registered 561
markers on the season for a new
Hawkeye high total, and his 205
field goals and 153 free throws
are also Iowa records.
While, sparking his team-
mates to a 19-3 slate, Darling
finished his 3-year career with
1094 tallies and scored 30 or
more in six contests. His high-
water effort came with 34
against Minnesota and Wiscon-
a sin.
Backing up the Iowa pivot oper~-
ator in the all-conference unit are
OSU's Paul Ebert and Purdue's
Carl McNulty at the forward posi-
tion.
EBERT, a 6-4 sophomore from
Columbus who received 80 out of
a possible 100 ballots, rewrote a
few scoring records himself.
Participating in his first year
of varsity play, Ebert netted 443
points in 22 games to gain the
Ohio State most valuable player
award. Three hundred of the
tallies came in 14 Big Ten starts
for a 21.4 average.
Ebert's point-getting prowess is
reflected in the following accomp-
lishments: most OSU points for
a regular season (443), most OSU
field goals in one game (14), most
field goals in a regular season
(168), OSU single game recdrd
(40-against Michigan), and OSU
one season Big Ten record (300).
AND EVEN MORE important to
the rest of the circuit is that

Ebert has two more years of eligi-
bility remaining.
McNulty is a Boilermaker vet-
eran whose rebounding and gen-
eral floor work has been just as
important as his point produc-
tion.
Standing 6-3, McNulty is one
of the smallest men on the all-
conference squad, but even with
* * .*

. CHUCK DARLING
. ..on all ballots
his height "disadvantage" he
managed to break the all-time
Purdue scoring mark established
by the same Carl McNulty in 1951.
* * *
THE 21-YEAR-OLD senior was
the only solace in a last place
finish for Coach Ray Eddy's Boi-
lermakers. He registered 289 points
in 14 league outings to top his
1951 production by 38 tallies. A
36-point harvest against Indiana
gave McNulty the new Purdue in-
dividual high per single game.
Rounding out the 1952 Wes-
tern Conference dream team are
junior Irv Bemoras of champion
Illinois and Ab Nicholas of sev-
enth-place Wisconsin. These
two hold down the backcourt
posts.
A dependable rebounder, Bem-
oras specializes in a one-handed
set and jump shot which is accu-
rate at varying distances. Last
year he was selected as the second
team forward in the NCAA Eas-
tern All-Star tournament by the
Associated Press.
* * *
BEMORAS MEASURES in at
6-3% and played his prep ball
in Chicago. This season he bet-
tered his 215-point 1951 output
by 37 scores.
Smooth-working Nicholas is
one ball-player that the cham-
pion Illini let away from their
backyard in Rockford. And ever
since Nicholas enrolled at Madi-
son, he has been a standout
guard in Coach Bud Foster's
offensive and defensive pat-
terns.
In 22 games this season, Nicho-

las scored 361 points and rewrote
three all-time Wisconsin free
throw marks. The 6-3 senior
meshed the most charity tosses for
a career (278), most free throws
in Big Ten career (181), and most
free throws in a single season
(114).
"Big Ab" also ranks as the sec-
ond best point-maker in Badger's
history with 982 good ones in 64
games. He was the big factor in
two late season Wisconsin upsets
over first-place Illinois and run-
ner-up Iowa.

Michigan Ranks Fourth
In All-TimeCage Action
Michigan ranks fourth behind
Purdue, Illinois and Wisconsin in
the all-time Big Ten conference
basketball standings.
A 7-15 slate in the 1951-52 cam-
paign gave the Wolverines a 35-
year total of 393 wins and 270
losses, good for a .592 percentage.
The last time the Maize and
Blue had a conference champion
was in 1948 under the tutelage of
the present Minnesota mentor,
Ozzie Cowles.

CAGE VETERANS CHOSEN ALL-CONFERENCE FORWARDS-Seniors Carl McNulty of Purdue (left), and Ab Nicholas of Wisconsin
rounded out their three-year varsity careers in fine style. McNulty registered 289 points in 14 league outings to rank third in the
Big Ten scoring race. Nicholas poured in 361 markers in the 22 Badger contests and set three free throw marks in the process.

Hoop Record
When Illinois basketball coach
Harry Combes takes his players
into the regional NCAA playoffs
this week, he will be bringing along
one of the most remarkable records
in modern cage history.
In five seasons at the Illini helm,
Combes has come out on top in 92
contests while dropping only 24.
During the same span, Illini hoop-
sters have garnered three confer-
ence crowns, and have never fin-
ished worse than third.
* * *
IN COMBES' first year, Illinois
won 15 out of 20 games overall and
finished third in the Big Ten. The
1234 points scored by the 1947-8
team was a new Illinois record.
But this was only a start. The
following year he molded a
squad that won 21 in 25 starts
and set a new seasonal standard
of 1705 markers. That feat won
for Combes the nomination as
"Coach of the Year" from Chi-
cago basketball writers.
His 1949-50 team tied for third
place in the Big Ten with a 7-5
slate. Then Combes returned last
year with a championship five
that earned him the "Coach of
the Year" award.
The 1950-51 unit posted a 13-1
record in league play and set a
conference scoring mark with 989
points. It went on to the NCAA
finals in Madison Square Garden
and walked away with the third
place trophy.
With this season's 12-2 confer-
ence effort, Combes-coached Illi-
nois teams have now chalked up 49
Big Ten wins as against only 15
losses. That remarkable record
adds up to an even more remark-
able .766 percentage, which is the
same as winning three out of every
four league starts.
Combes' success in the college
ranks was mirrored a few years
before in prep circles. From a be-
ginning in 1938-39 that saw his
first squad reach the state prep
quarter-finals, Combes compiled
an outstanding record of 236 wins,
and only 37 losses for his eight-
year tenure.

Scoring statistics released by
the Western Conference Service
Bureau reveal that Illinois won its
title with only one individual
scorer among the Big Ten's top
ten, and only three among the
top twenty.
Center John Kerr worked his
way into seventh position with 214
points and a 15.3 average. Guard
Rod Fletcher followed in the 12th
slot with 172 tallies, and the Daily
all-conference guard, Irv Bemor-
as, ranked 16th with 154 scores.
Indiana and Minnesota each
had two in the first ten. High for
the Hoosiers were freshman pivot
operator Don Schlundt in fourth
place and forward Bob Leonard
threw in 212 points for the eighth
ranking position.
Center Ed Kalafat and guard
Chuck Mencel ranked ninth and
tenth for the Gophers.
