Sigma Phi Epsilon outplayed
and outscored Alpha Tau Omega in
every quarter last night, to whip
the defending champions, 42-28,
in the first championship playoff
round in the social fraternity "A"
Paced by the steady playing of
Syd Cook and Warren Gast, who
netted 12 points each, the Sig Eps
took a narrow 10-7 lead at the
first quarter and then split the
game wide open with a 15 point
barrage to capture a comfortable
25-15 halftime advantage.

THE ATOs Fought back gamely
on the scoring of Dave Bishop,
who counted nine points, and Bob
Dingman and Lou Baldacci, who
each dumped in eight. But the
best they could dp was to cut the
margin to six points early in the

The Delts' Don Dodds copped
scoring honors, however, with a
14 point effort to pace the los-
ers along with Bob Morrison,
who dumped nine points into the

The Big Ten's Indiana has clos-
ed in on the Pirates' point advan-
tage during the last three weeks.
By DAVE BAAD
Picking up five points on three
goals and two assists during the
weekend series with North Dako-
ta, John Matchefts maintained
his position as the Michigan hock-
ey team's top scorer.
The stocky Wolverine captain
ran his season's total to 33points
to put him five markers ahead of
George Chin and seven in front of
Doug Mullen who follow in the
second and third slots.
MATCHEFTS has been Vic Hey-
liger's most potent scorer since
early in the season, despite the
fact that he has centered a line
flanked by consistently changing
pairs of wings.
He has played, at one time or
another, with John McKennell,
Earl Keyes, Jim Haas, Doug
Philpott, Ron Martinson and
Bert Dunn. However, a variety,
of linemates hasn't slowed up
the Wolverine captain and his 23
assists mark him as the team's
top playmaker to date.
Chin and Mullen were the scor-
ing stars against the Nodaks. The
former racked up five assists and
netted one goal for six points to
bring his season's record to 28
MULLEN, performing between
Chin and Pat Cooney for the first
time, played his best hockey of
the season, firing home four goals
and adding three assists for a to-
tal of seven points.
The four tallies enabled him
to forge into the lead in the goal
scoring department with fifteen
for the year, passing Earl Keyes
who had been the leader with 12.
Eleven assists give Mullen a to-
tal mark of 26 points.
Since Rot Martinson tallied on
a close in shot against Michigan
State two weeks ago, Alex McClel-
Ian is left as the only Wolverine
without a goal.
The sturdy defenseman was-in-
jured in Saturday's game and had
to be helped from the ice. For-
tunately, however, it was nothing
serious and he will be ready to go
against McGill Friday night.

HERE IT Is
"The guy I feel sorry for is Bill
So said one observer Monday
night onthe heels of Michigan's
sixth successive Big Ten basket-
ball setback. The Wolverines had
just lost a heart-breaking, one-
point decision to Northwestern,
winner of the first meeting be-
tween the same two teams by a
THERE'S NO question that Per-
igo is getting his lumps in his in-
itial year on the local hoop scene.
Aside from three out of four wins
against non-conference opposi-
tion, Michigan successes have been
two and far between.
But here's what the Maize and
Blue mentor has been up
Michigan has one of the foul-
ingest outfits in the nation. In 18
contests thus far, 38 players have
fouled out-which is the same as
saying that everytime the Wolver-
ines take the court, at least two
of the starters won't be around by
the time the final buzzer sounds.
* * *
TAKE MONDAY night for in-
stance. Perigo's cagers committed
29 infractions, losing three valu-
able starters in the fourth period
and another in the third as they
ran their personal foul total to
461 (an average of 26.6 per outing).
Milt Mead was having one of
his better nights when he was
banished with 7:46 remaining
for the eleventh time this sea-
son. Center Paul Groffsky, lead-
ing Wolverine point-getter with
a 14.0 average, went to the bench
15 seconds earlier for the ninth
time in 18 outings and fifth in
the last five games.
On top of its penchant for fou-
ing, the Michigan quintet is also
sadly inept from the free throw
line. While actually scoring the
same number of field goals as the
invading Wildcats (28), the Wol-
verines once again threw the ball
game away from the charity stripe.
OF 51 FREE chances, Michigan
made good on only 28. At the same
time, Northwestern converted 29
of 42 to gain its margin of vic-
tory. Michigan's season total now
stands at 361 conversions out of
628 chances-a miserable percent-
age of 57.
Perigo's third big problem is how
to keep the opposition's big man
from piling up valuable baskets.
The Wildcats center duo of Frank
Petrancek and Bud Grant com-
bined for 33 points.
Earlier this year, Wisconsin's
Paul Morrow notched 27, Paul
Ebert of Ohio State counted with
22, and Don Schlundt of Indiana
hit for 39 and 26.
So it goes. Michigan has four
contests remaining on its sched-
ule, playing against Minnesota,
Ohio State, Michigan State and
Purdue. The Wolverines, now
sporting a 5-13 slate, will have to
go some to even match the 7-15
record amassed by the embattled
Ernei McCoy combine of 1951-52.
