Badger Cagemen
Defeat Michigan
Courtmen Return to League Cellar;
Commit 32 Personals in Ninth Loss



Special to The Daily
MADISON-Michigan fouled its
way back into the Big Ten basket-
ball cellar last night, committing
32 personals and losing three
starters as Wisconsin .backed into
a 75-63 triumph.
Coupled with Purdue's upset win
over Northwestern, the back-
breaking loss left the Wolverines
half a game in the basement with
a 2-9 conference slate.
Coach Bill Perigo's over-anxious
quaintet actually outshot the Bad-
gers from the field, converting on
24 two-pointers while the home
squad cashed 23. But 29 Wiscon-
sin chairity tosses spelled the dif-
ference in the see-saw action.
* * *
UNTIL Paul Froffsky, John Cod-
well and Milt Mead fouled out
within a minute of each other late
in the third period, it was any-
body's ball game.
Mead was the first to go, leav-
ing with three minutes remain-
ing in the quarter. Codwell was
thumbed out at the 2:16 mark,
and Groffsky retired 14 seconds
later. At that time, Michigan
was trailing by a single point,
Wisconsin followed with a re-
lentless free throw barrage that
upped its advantage to 56-51 aft-
er three stanzas and blew the game
wde open in the final session.
s. s
WITH MEAD and Cadwell hit-
ting often in the opening round,
Perigo's charges found themselves
only two points away, 16-14, aft-
er ten minutes.
Two field goals and a free throw
knotted the count at 19-all early
in the next session, and then Mich-
igan captain Doug Lawrence went
on a scoring rampage that had
the better than 13,000 Wisconsin
faithful up on their feet for the
next eight minutes.
Lawrence, a diminutive 5-8
guard, whistled through five sue-
cessive set shots from better
than 30 feet out, ringing up 11

successive markers as the Wol-
verines kept pace with Wiscon-
sin throughout the second stan-
A pair of free throws by Groff-
sky handed the Maize and Blue
a momentary 34-33 advantage, but
the Badgers came back with a
couple of baskets of their own to
lead 38-35 at halftime.
With Wichigan's three big men
on the bench, 6-2 guard Bob Topp
was forced to take over the pivot
spot against 6-7 Paul Morrow,
leaving Ralph Kauffman and
Bruce Allen at the forwards.
This revamped combination
rallied in the fourth period to
bring the tally to 66-63, after
which a mild Wisconsin freeze
strategy resulted in nine straight
points to ice the verdict.

Roll Up 23-3 Score
As Kaul, Nalan Star
Winning seven of eight matches,
Michigan wrestlers pinned a stun-
ning 23-3 defeat on Illinois' de-
fending conference champs last
night at Yost Field House.
After dropping the opening 123-
pound match, Coach Cliff Keen's
Wolverines swept victoriously
through the rest of the weight
divisions, dumping two former Big
Ten titlists in the process and pick-
ing up their fifth straight win over
conference competition.
SOPHOMORE Andy Kaul turn-
ed in one of his -greatest perform-
ances as he came from behind to
gain an 8-4 decision over Pete
Compton, Illini captain and hold-
er of the Big Ten 137-pound crown.
Compton had previously never
been beaten in a high school or
collegiate dual meet.,
Michigan Captain Snip Na-
lan also whipped an opponent
loaded with titles when he edg-
ed 34-year old Lou Kachiroubas,
6-3, in the 130-pound class.
Kachiroubas, who served sev-
eral years in the navy before at-
tending college, has won two Na-
tional AAU championships, two
Big Ten titles, and last year was
runner-up in the conference.

Harold "Pepper" Holt at 177

Special To The Daily
LAST LANSING--In the face
of surprisingly strong opposition,
the Michigan track team was able
to garner only a single relay crown
and two individual firsts in the
Michigan State Relays before 2500
fans in Jenison fledlhouse here
last night.
The Wolverines' only team tri-
umph came in the two mile relay
where George Lynch, Geoff Dool-
ey, Roy Christiansen, and John
Ross combined to win in the good
time of 7:44.4.
IN A REAL upset a Michigan
State quartet composed of Dick
Jarrett, Lou Vargha, John Walter,
and Jim Kepford topped the Wol-
verines in the Distance Medley
event. Kepford came from behind
to nip John Moule and win by
less than a step. The Spartans'
time was a fast 10:08.1.
The two winners for the
Maize and Blue were both re-
peats from last year's festivi-
ties. Van Bruner, who triumph-
ed in the 75 yard high hurdles,
was clocked in the fast time of
Fritz Nilsson received a scare
in the shot when Tom Jones of
Miami of Ohio tossed the metal
ball 52 feet 111/2 inches, but an
his fourth toss of the night Nils-

son heaped the shot
inches to win.

. ONE OF THE oddities of the
meet occurred in the sprint med-
ley event when Coach Don Can-
ham ordered quarter-miler Grant
Ccruggs to drop out of the race.
It developed that Scruggs had
changed lanes too quickly and
would probably have been dis-
qualified, so to keep his remaining
men fresh the Wolverines drop-
ped from the event.
The Wolverines, though plac-
ing third in the mile relay nar-
rowly missed winning their
event. The relay was run in
heats with positions based on
time. Their time of 3:21.5 easily
taking their heat and only two

tenths off the winning time,
placing them third.
By far the outstanding individ-
ual competitor in theameet was
Thane Baker of Kansas State.
The Wildcat, who made the Amer-
ican Olympic team at 200 meters,
was the meet's only double win-
* * *
BESIDES winning the 300 yard
run in 31 flat and the 75 yard
dash in 7.6, he ran the opening
leg on the Kansas State relay team
that won the Sprint Medley.
This quartet of Baker, James
Loomis, Jerry Marshon, and Rich-
ard Towers set the meet's only new
'record running the distance in
3:29.8 topping the old meet and
fieldhouse record set by an Ohio
State quartet in 1951.

and Blue allowed only one first
place to Michigan. Sullivan was
entered in every event, as he
amassed a total of 26 points.
The only bright spot of the
evening, as far as the Wolverines
were concerned, was the brilliant
performance of Frank Adams, who
took a first in the trampoline.
The only event that Coach
Loken's charges took was the
tramp. Adams was assisted by
captain Don Hurst and Jack
Eckle, who took third and fourth
Adams took two fourth in ad-
dition to his first to give him 10
points for the meet. Mary John-

ors garnering a third, three

Michigan felt the loss of Lee

ineligible. However, Luchs put on
excellent exhibitions in the high
