T In Official Western Conference Statistics

By DICK LEWIS
Two repeat selections from last
year plus a trio of new hardwood
standouts go to make up the 1952-
53 edition of the Michigan Daily
All-Big Ten basketball team and
at the same time represent some
of the top cage talent in the na-
tion.
The star-studded lineup, chosen
by a board of Daily experts, puts
Paul Ebert of Ohio State and Irv
Bemoras of Illlinois at the for-
wards. Indiana's Don Schlundt
holds down the pivot slot, while
Minnesota's Chuck Mencel and
another - Hoosier, Bob Leonard,l
are in the back court positions.
SOLE UNANIMOUS choice in
the close balloting was Mencel,
sure-shooting guard from Coach'
Ozzie Cowles' third-place Minne-
sota quintet.
While only a sophomore, 5-11
Mencel finished third in the
conference scoring race, total-
ling 310 points in 17 starts for
an 18.2 average. The 19-year-
old Gopher missed one game
with a severely sprained ankle,
but came right back against Mi-
chigan to collect 26 points and
keep up his torrid point-getting

v

Ebert led the Western Confer-
ence in field goals with a har-
vest of 145 in 378 attempts and
was second in scoring, tallying
406 markers for a 22.6 average.

pace.
His 33 per cent shooting aver-
age, made on 111 of 336 field goal
attempts, and his .746 percentage
from the free throw line (88 for
118) enabled the Eau Claire, Wis-
consin playmaker to smash Whitey
Skoog's all-time Minnesota season
scoring record.j

CHUCK MENCEL
. .. unanimous choice
popping in accurate one-hand
shots from all over the court.
Big Schlundt, 6-9 blond bomb-
er from South Bend, paced his
squad to an all-time conference
won and lost record of 17-1.
His output of 459 points in 18
league encounters led Indiana to
a record 1452 points and a recordI
game average of 80.7, but it stilli
fell short of the 26.0 individual
record set by Iowa's Chuck Darl-
ing last season.
* * *
SCHLUNDT'S average was 25.5.
and was achieved with 142 field
goals (second in the league) in
326 attempts for a fancy .436 av-
erage per outing.
The latter was again second in

Owning a deft hook shot from
either side and a great talent for
dunking in rebounds, Ebert smash-
ed All-American Dick Schnitt-
ker's all-time OSU point-getting
mark with 34 tallies against Mi-
chigan in the season's finale at
Columbus.
THIS CAME closetto duplicating
a 40-point night that "Stretch"
enjoyed aaginst the Maize and
Blue quintet on the same Colum-
bus court last season.
Together with Ebert, Illinia
forward Bemoras is another re-
peater on the Daily aggregate.
During the just-completed cam-
paign, the 6-4 senior established a
three-year record of 822 points to
surpass that of former Illinois
captain Don Sunderlage, who com-
piled 777 points in the three sea-.
sons from 1949 through 1951.
* * *
BEMORAS' .three-year break-
down was 215 in 1951, 285 in 1952,
322 in 1953.
Playing a guard on Illinois'
second-place outfit (Bemoras
can go either up front or on the
back line), the lithe set-shot
ranked 11th in conference scor-
ing with a 14.7 average.
