Bucks at wolverine Lair
In Season Finale Today
(Continued from Page 1)
OHIO TOO HAS BEEN beset with injuries to key players this
season, but whereas Michigan received most of its punishment over
/ the course of the last two games, the Buckeyes have had a little time
to ready themselves for today's encounter.
Ohio's great quarterback, John Borton of Alliance, was
knocked out of the Illinois game early in the season with a
sprained ankle, and has yet to regain full playing efficiency.
Borton is the key to the Ohio offense. It is his passing and the
threat of his running from the tricky "Split T" formation that
give the Buckeyes a scoring punch which at the outset of the
season was expected to carry them to the conference title.
Bob Watkins, a 5 foot 9 inch, 192 pound package of football
dynamite from New Bedford, Massachusetts, is the top Ohio runner,
and one of the finest ball carriers in the nation. Watkins has carried
the ball 134 times for 804 yards and 10.touchdowns this season. He
has a six yard rushing average, one of the best in the Big Ten.
Against California in a non-conference game which was televised
across the nation, he scored four touchdowns and was acclaimed the
Back of the Week in the Associated Press Poll.
The overall picture for Michigan this afternoon is as gloomy
as the overcast sky, however the always-present upset factor in these
traditional Big Ten games, and especially in the Ohio State-Michigan
series; may offer some pre-game comfort to Wolverine adherants.
The Michigan team is thoroughly aroused for this game and wants
to win it badly. The only question is whether or not the varsity can
overcome the handicap of the numerous injuries to important players.
The inclement weather may help to slow the Ohio offense, but in the
final analysis the game must be won at the scrimmage line by superior
play.

WOLVERINE HOOP HISTORY:
Pitt Opener Marks Thirty-Six Years of 'M' Basketball

- -

By TED KAUFMAN
Michigan enters its thirty-sixth
consecutive year of basketball on
December fifth with its season
opener against the Pittsburgh
Panthers.
In this three decades plus, the
Maize and Blue hoopsters have
been victorious in nearly sixty per
cent of their six hundred and six-
ty-five endeavors. In conference
play, however, the Wolverines have
amassed only a .495 percentage,
which places them fourth in all-
time conference standings behind
Illinois, Wisconsin and Purdue.
IN ITS FIRST year, 1917, the
Wolverine quintet with Elmer
Mitchell as coach ended the sea-
son with a disappointing 6-12 re-
cord, ten of the losses and none
of the wins were in the Big Ten.
The 0-10 record earned Michigan
the conference cellar.
Mitchell left Michigan after
the following season and Edwin
Mather replaced him. Mather
was more durable than his pred-
essdr and it was not until 1928,
after nine years in Ann Arbor,
that he left Michigan.

In 1926, the Wolverines ended
in a four way tie for the confer-
ence title with Indiana, Purdue
and Iowa. The following season
they brought back to Ann Arbor
its first undisputed Big Nine hoop
title with a 10-2 record.
* * *
GEORGE VEENKER, Mather's
replacement, coached the Michi-
gan team to a tie with Wiscon-
sin for the conference laurels in
his first year, 1929. The spark
plug of this team was its captain
and a future hoop coach here, Er-
nie McCoy.
McCoy, playing guard, provid-
ed the fire behind the team, and
was awarded the honor of be-
ing elected captain of the 1929
all-conference team and the,
conference medal for being cap-,
tain of the championship bas-
ketball team.
From 1931 to 1937, the Maize
and Blue quintets were under the
tutelage of Frank Cappon. Al-
though Cappon's teams never
brought a conference title to Ann
Arbor, they did compile a winning
66-49 record.

A FAMILIAR name to present
day university students followed
Cappan. Ben Oosterbaan, all-
American end and present Wolver-
ine football coach stepped into the
coaching reigns.
During Oosterbaan's e i g h t
years Michigan also went with-
out a title. However, several not-
ables played on Bennie's 1943-44
squad. One was Elroy "Crazy
Legs" Hirsch, now a profession-
al football player and the other
was Don Lund who played for
the Detroit Tigers last season.
Following the Oosterbaan era,
Ozzie Cowles, famous Minnesota
product came to Michigan for two
seasons and during that time
coached the Wolverine's most re-
known five, that of 1947-48.
* * *
WITH SUCH personnel as Pete
Elliott, that year all Big Nine de-
fensive ace, Mack Sprunowicz, on
the all Big Nine five, Bill Roberts
and Bob Harrison, the conferences
top scorer, the team compiled a
15-5 season record and led the
conference.
With such a fine season, the

team was invited to represent
the midwest in the NCAA tour-
nament in New York City. They
bowed to Holy Cross, the defend-
ing champs, but came back to
trounce Columbia 66-49, and win
the consolation round.
For the 1948-51 seasons Ernie
McCoy, captain of the 1929 team
returned as coach. The 1948 squad
had a season's record of 15-6, Bob
Harrison was named most valu-
able conference player but the
team could do no better than third
in the standings of the Big Nine.
* * *.
WHEN McCOY left in 1952, the
present Michigan basketball men-
tor, the affable Bill Perigo took
over. With a team rather limited
by lack of height, his t charges
could do no betterthan a tie for
the conference cellar with a 3-15
record.
This season, Perigo's second as
coach, the Maize and Blue five
have been strengthened by the ad-
dition of more speed but still lacks
the needed experienced height.
The future, with the past, looks
bright for Michigan fans.
