Illini, Indiana
Contend for
Cage Crown
It's Illinois' cagers at Indiana
this Saturday night with the out-
come determining whether one or
three teams will capture the Big
Ten basketball title.
The Hoosiers maintained their
hold on first place over the week-
end but both the Illini and Iowa
crept a half game closer. The sit-
uation is now this: Indiana has
won 11 of its 13 Western Confer-
ence games, the Hawkeyes have
completed their schedule and have
lost one more than the leaders,
while Illinois is a full game out
with a 10-3 mark.-
* * * .
SHOULD THE Hoosiers defeat
the team from Champaign, they
will take the Big Ten crown and
the NCAA berth that goes along
with it. However, an Illini victory
would cause a three-way deadlock
and most likely result in a vote to
decide the NCAA participant.
The Bloomington five won Its
only weekend encounter, routing
Ohio State at Columbus, 84-68.
Don Schlundt, the league's lead-
ing scorer with 354 points, tal-
lied 27 of them Saturday, while
sophomore Wally Choice con-
tributed 20 as the Hoosiers
cinched a tie for the conference
Iowa stayed in contention by
taking a pair of games. The Hawk-
eyes moved into East Lansing Sat-
urday and outscored Michigan

cagers also were successful in both
of their weekend tussles, although
not before they had a couple of

night. However John Kerr started
to find the range in the final ten
minutes and Harry Combes' five

Gym Squad E
Michigan's gymnastics team,
boasting three straight victories
after some rather shaky early sea-
son performances, faces Michigan
State tonight in its last home dual
meet of the season.
The match starting at 7:30 p.m.1
will be held in the large gym of
the Intramural Building.
UNDEFEATED in home compe-
tition this year, the Wolverines are
expecting their toughest opposition
since early February when the
squad dropped a 55-41 decision at
Coach Newt Loken, who has
seen his team breeze to rather
one-sided triumphs over Minne-
sota, Ohio State and Northwest-
ern during the past three weeks
predicts a 49-47 score with the
verdict going either direction de-7
pending on which squad picks up'
the breaks.
The main reason for Michigan'st
fear of the Spartans is their sen-
sational star Charlton Rintz, who
finished second in all-around per-
formance last season in the NCAA

Mary Johnson only competed in

Johnson's wrist is sufficient-

timing will possibly be off due

the injury.
Along with Johnson, seniors Lee
Krumbholz, Dick Bergman and

THE 50-YARD and 100-yard
sprints will be featured by return
engagements between Ohio's Dick
Cleveland and Michigan's Don i
Hill. Last Saturday Cleveland
nosed out Hill by a hair three
times in the dual meet between
the OSU and Wolverine swimming
squads and the Michigan ace is
determined to gain back some of
his lost glory against the record-
breaking Hawaiian.
Al Kuhn, captain of the
Northwestern Wildcats; who fin-
ished fourth in the 50-yard
crawl in the 1953 conference
meet, will be a significant figure
in the sprints, along with the
dependable Tom Whiteleather of
Ohio State.
Co-captain Tom Benner, Olym-
pian Ron Gora, and the fast-im-
proving Bobby Knox may get calls
from Coach Matt Mann in the
short distance events for Michi-
gan. Illinois' Nick Karpincheck,
Michigan State's Tom Payette and
Chuck Baldwin, and Dick Pen-
nington of Iowa will all be scrap-
ping for berths among the con-
ference elite.
THE MIDDLE and long distance
events are led by the incompar-
able Ford Konno of Ohio State.
Konno broke two records last-
weekend as the Buckeyes were
trimming Michigan at Columbus.

up a new world record in the 220-

mark in the 440 when he churned
the distance in 4:29.4. Konno is
also the defending Big Ten 1500-

Maize and Blue fans are hop-
ing that Bumpy Jones, 1953

and the 1500-meter races. Cirig-
liano is a man to be reckoned
with as he placed high in both
these events last season. John
O'Reilly and Ron Gora may swim
in the middle or long distance fea-
tures for the Wolverines.
ROSS LUCAS of Iowa and Dick
Talbot of Purduewere both final-
ists in the 1953 conference cham-
pionships in the 1500-meter and
220-yard respectively, and each
man figures to be around for the
finals this year. Michigan State's
Jack Beattie will be the chief
hope of the Lansing fans in the
distance events.
Michigan, despite its setback
to Ohio State last Saturday still
must be given the nod as favor-
ite in the 400-yard freestyle re-
lay. Coach Matt Mann is not
sure of the combination that he
will enter to defend the Wolver-
ine's Big Ten relay title, but one
thing is certain and that is that
co-captain Hill will oppose
Cleveland as the anchor man of
the Wolverine quartet.
Michigan State, Wisconsin, and
Purdue seem to measure closest
to the quality of the Michigan
and Ohio State foursomes. The
freestyle events, because of their
point value will be the most influ-
ential of any group of races in de-
termining who will emerge as the
1954 Big Ten Conference swim-
ming champion Saturday night.
One would be quite safe in say-
ing that either Ohio State or
Michigan will gain the distinction
