left for them at this year's NCAA
hockey tournament as the Wol-
verines skated to an easy 7-2 vic-
tory over Boston College in the
consolation game here yesterday
The win was little consolation,
though, for the six seniors who
were playing their last game for
the Maize and Blue. The seventh
senior, Willard Ikola, did not dress
for the game.

BILL LUCIER handled the net
' minding chores for Vic Heyliger's
sextet and turned in a brilliant
performance to ring tlown the
Michigan hockey curtain for an-
other year.
After losing the right to de-
fend their championship against
Minnesota by losing Friday night
to RPI, the Wolverines came
back yesterday to win consola-
tion honors for the third time
in the seven year history of the
The one bright ray in the Wol-
verine camp was the performance
of sophomore Bill MacFarland,
who tied a tournament record by
picking up nine points in the two
games. MacFarland scored one
goal and four assists yesterday to
go along with his, hat-trick and an
assist Friday.
IT WAS MacFarland's second
line that paved the way to victory
over Boston just as it kept the
Wolverines in that game against
the Engineers on Friday.
Linemate Doug Philpott tal-
lied three times against the
Eagles yesterday and also as-

Jimmy Haas, both of whom were

RPI Dumps
In Overtime
Special to The Daily
played giant killer for the second
night in a row as an overtime goal
netted a 5-4 victory over Minneso-
ta here last night to give the En-
gineers their first NCAA ice cham-
Gordon Peterkin scored the win-
ning tally at 1:54 of sudden death
overtime to clinch the most bril-
liant victory in the seven year
history of the tournament.
* * *
THE SCORE came out of a
scramble in front of the net when
Peterkin casually flipped the puck
over the prostrated form of Go-
pher goalie Jim Mattson.
Sparked by center Abbey
Moore, who was voted the tour-
nament's most valuable player,
and goalie Bob Fox, who turned
aside 40 shots in last night's
victory, the Engineers put on an
inspired performance to outhus-
tle Minnesota all the way.
Just as it did the night before,
RPI jumped into an early 3-0 lead
and then saw it wither away as

the third period, Gopher center,
Johnny Mayasich beat Fox to tie;
up the game at 3-3.

LESS THAN four minutes later
Dick Daugherty finished off a set-
up pass from Mayasich to put
Minnesota into a 4-3 lead. The
underdog Engineers apparently
were through despite their gallant
However, Moore surprised the
capacity gathering of 2600 by
beating Mattson with a close in
drive at 16:10 to again tie up the
contest. Fox, playing brilliantly,
turned aside Minnesota for the
remainder of the period to send
RPI to its overtime victory.
The classy Fox had 20 saves
in the final stanza.
Mayasich, by picking up two
points against Rensselaer tied the
tournament scoring record of nine
points, also tied by Bill MacFar-
land of Michigan in the afternoon,

THE CROWD of 18,496, which
established a new Madison Square
Gargen record, saw All -American
Togo Palazzi play his last and one
of his best games for Holy Cross.
Palazzi didn't reach the upper
scoring brackets he usually hits
but he did everything else so su-
perbly that the Dukes hardly had
a chance.
Not only did he score 20
points, but he did such a job
both on offense and defense
and defense against Dick Rick-

that Ricketts scored only 13

(This is the final in a series about
the prospects for next year's Michi-
gan basketball team.)
Will next year see Michigan's
basketball team again fighting to
stay out of the Big Ten cellar, or
are Wolverine fans going to have
an outfit that will be in title con-
The picture for next season is
clouded with uncertainty; yet
those who are optimistic can find
bright spots when they look at

next year's outfit, it might be in-
teresting to glance back at the
'53-'54 quintet. Despite the fact
that it finished tied for ninth place
with three wins for the second
season in a row, this year's cage
squad showed improvement over,
its predecessor.
The nine games won during
the season was three more than
last year's team could garner.
The Wolverines' trio of ,victories
in Western Conference play was
accomplished in a 14-game
schedule whereas the previous
campaign Michigan played 18
league contests.
* * *
CERTAINLY Bill Perigo's outfit
was more interesting to watch.
Home attendance jumped from
39,500 for 12 games last year to
47,900 for this season's 11 en-
Included among this total
were near capacity crowds for

Jim Barrbn ..131 115 377 17.1

the Indiana and Michigan State
contests, reminiscent of the days
of Ozzie Cowles championship
teams seven years ago.
Whether next season's Wolver-
ine cagers revive memories of the
glory days of 1947-48 in unans-
werable at present; however the
possibilities do exist.
THE KEY to Michigan's hopes
next year would seem to be 6-8
Harvey Williams. It is an accepted
adage in basketball that you do
not go far without a good big man.
Williams can be that man.
After a very promising start,
the sophomore center began to
play very lethargic basketball
and finally Perigo was forced to
bench him. However Williams
did show sparks of brilliance
and Perigo has stated a couple
of times, "he (Williams) could
be great."
Perigo will have back next sea-
son Williams, Jim Barron, Don
Eaddy, Paul Groffsky, and Tom
Jorgensen, all regulars on this
year's outfit, but he may be sorely
lacking in depth.

John Codwell, Milt Mead, and
Ray Pavichevich, all seniors, help-
ed give Michigan a good bench
during the 1953-54 campaign. The
first two were among Michigan's
best rebounders, a department
which was a trouble spot all year.
From the freshman team and
the returning reserves, Perigo will
have to develop additional strength
if Michigan is to escape the Big
Ten doldrums and acquire the
position of a title contender.
Aside from those mentioned, also
returning from this year's team
will be Bruce Allen and Jay Vaw-
ter, both letterwinners and Tom
Singer and Jerry Stern. Singer is
a sophomore and Stern is a first
semester junior with ,a year and
a half of eligibility remaining.
