Maize and Blue Suffer Fif
Straight Conference Setha

By DICK LEWIS
Mediocre Wisconsin drove an-
other stake into the Michigan bas-
h ketball coffin last night, over-
whelming the listless Wolverines
by a 74-52-margin before a sparse
gathering of die-hards at Yost
Coach Bill Perigo's cagers fought
off rigor mortis briefly in the first
and second quarters, but thereaft-
* er rolled over and played dead
while absorbing their fifth straight
league setback and eleventh loss
in 13 Big Ten starts.
* * *
FOR THE invading Badgers it
was their second win in seven days
over the woeful Wolverines, the
first being a 75-63 triumph on the
Lanky Wisconsin pivot opera-
tor Paul Morrow performed the
role of chief executioner for the
winners. He scored 27 pointers,
15 of them coming on free
throws, and controlled both
boards throughout the dull con-
Things got off to a flying start
in the opening three minutes with
the red-hot Badgers racing to a
9-0 advantage while Michigan
played footsie with the ball at mid-
court and lost control numerous
times on walking infractions.
HUSTLING guard Don Eaddy,
top point-getter for the losers with
a 20-point harvest, finally broke
the ice at the 6:20 mark, and a
couple of minutes later the Maize
and Blue began the first of its
Coacch Harold (Bud) Foster's
Badger quintet had gone out in
front, 11-4, when forward Milt
. Mead dunked a one-hander,.
Eaddy canned two charity tosses,
to close the gap to 11-9.
Morrow then responded with a
scoring spree of his own as he
hit on eight successive markers
to- give the winners a 19-12 lead
which was expanded to 21-16 at
* * *
FOUR MORROW free throws
(the 6-8 bespectacled center fun-
nelled through 15 out of 24 on the
evening) and a couple of fast-
break conversions . swelled the
count to 29-20 with' about five min-
utes gone in-the second stanza.
At tiis point Michigan ems
barked on its second and last
attempt at a concerted offense.
Groffsky arched in a right-
handed hook shot and followed
with a perfect free throw, Mead
counted with a foul toss of his
own, and jumping, John Cod-
well made it 29-26 with a pretty
one-handed shot from the key-
That was it as far as the Maize
and Blue was concerned. Wiscon-
sin followed. with a seven-point
spree that put the contest out of
reach by a 38-28 tally at half-
fat 54-39 edge at the three-
What little semblance Michigan
had of height to cope with the
sharp-shooting Morrow went by
the boards after 15 seconds of the
final period when Mead contracted
his fifth personal foul and was
waived out of the scrap.
THREE MINUTES later, Groff-
sky also left the ball game with
excess personals and from then on
the Wolverine reserves exchanged
baskets in a comedy of errors with
the Wisconsin red-shirts.
Morrow stayed in the game
long enough to mesh five more
free throws and Badger guard
Chuck Siefert collected four field
goals during his brief stay in
the final minutes. That gave Sie-
fert a 17-point output to place
him second behind Morrow in
the visitors' scoring column.
Hard-charging Cable, who net-
ted 25 tallies up at Madison, was
limited to only five field goals on
the strength of a sterling defen-
sive effort by Codwell.
* * *
ON THE OTHER HAND, Cable
turned in an even better job of
throttling Michigan captain Doug
Lawrence. The diminutive Maize
and Blue backcourt operator had
counted 35 points in his last two
starts, but was held scoreless by
the leach-like Cable.
By heaving through only 18
of 77 chances from the floor for
a poor 23.4 percentage, Perigo's
quintet achieved its second worst
shooting performance of the sea-
son. The previous low was 16 of
96 in the yawn-fest with Ohio
Wisconsin's shot average was a
none too spectacular, 29.5, or 25,
of 88 attempts from the floor.
The next test for the Maize and
Blue five, which now sports a sea-
son's slate of 5-12, is on tap Mon-
day night at the Field House. Pro-
viding the opposition will be lowly
Northwestern, another squad
which is lingering in the depths
of the conference second division.
Previously, Coach Waldo Fish-
er's combine racked up a one-
sided 84-57 triumph at Evanston.
Chances are that 6-8 center Har-
vey Williams might be available
for the Wildcat showdown. Wil-
liams has missed the last three
games with a combination of death

In total command all the way,
Michigan's swimming team easily
conquered Iowa State 63-30 at
the I-M pool last night in a non-
conference dual meet.
In winning their sixth straight
meet of the season, Matt Mann's
swimmers were never pressed.
Mann entered his sophomore sen-
sations, Ron Gora and Bumpy
Jones in only one event each, in
an attempt to even out the laurels.
MICHIGAN took eight out of
ten firsts. Jones and Gora both
won easily, Bumpy taking the 200
yard breaststroke, and Ron the
300-yard medley relay-1. Iowa State

dily won diving; Don Hill, who
won the 50 yard freestle; John
Chase,hwho triumphed in the 200
yard backstroke; and Tom Ben-:
ner, who took the 100 yard free
The Wolverines also won the
440 yard freestyle relay, with
Chase, John Ford, Pete Dow,
and Hill comprising the team.
A unique feature of this event,
was the duel provided from the
Michigan freshman relay team,
which was competing in a tele-
graphic meet against Iowa U.
To save some time, Mann raced
his yearlings at the same time
as the Michigan-Iowa State
race, thus providing the Wol-
verines with real competition.
Highlighting the freshman meet
final results of which were un-
available at press time, was the
setting of a new freshman 300
yard medley relay record. The
team of Bert and Jack Wardrup
and Tom Boulter plowed the dis-
tance 'in 2:54.4, breaking the old
mark of 2:54.9.
Michigan now - trains its sights
on a weak Minnesota team, which
meets the Wolverines in a dual
meet tomorrow at 3:30 in the IM
Building. The Gophers, ninth
place finishers last season, bring
only three lettermen. The meet
will be feature'd by attempts to
break various records.
