Sophomore Neil Buchanan,
playing his first game for the
Wolverines, managed to pick up
ten minutes in penalties and was
in .the box during the first two
Denver goals. Buchanan, how-
ever, played a strong defensive'
game and will be a vital factor in
the Michigan drive for a fourth
straight NCAA title this spring.

A PENALTY to Eldon Willock
at the four minute mark of the
opening period, gave the Wolver-
ines their first chance to break
into the scoring. After goalie Bill
Begg had turned away two hard
shots, Chin slapped in the re-
bound resulting from Mullen's try
from 20 feet.
Three and a half minutes
later, Michigan had a 3-0 lead
on a 35-footer by MacFarland
and a goal mouth flip by Chin.
At the mid-point in the period
Denver scored to make it 3-1 at
the first intermission.
After close play for about eight
minutes in the middle stanza the
Wolverines broke the game -wide
open when Denver center Jack
Smith was penalized for slashing.

light blinked five times after Mich-

vantage of a complete collapse by
Michigan to move out 'to a 78-58
margin and from there coasted
Michigan, in suffering its fifth
Big Ten loss as opposed to two
wins, missed a golden oppor-
tunity to grab a big lead early
in the contest. A dozen times
in the first period the losers
lost possession of the ball with-
out taking a shot, Thus despite
the fact that the Hawkeyes hit
on but 27 percent of their first
half shots, they still held a
three point edge at the end of
the first quarter and at the in-
In the second half it was a dif-
ferent story. With a dazzling, dis-
play of teamwork, Iowa managed
to take most of its shots from in
close. The winners were too fast
for the Maize and Blue defense
and time and time again broke
loose for dog shots.
With their scoring spree in the
final 20 minutes, the Iowa hoop-
sters brought their game shooting
percentage up to a very impres-
sive .383 on 33 out of 86.
SCHOOF, 6-6 forward who did
not even start the game, tallied'
most of his points on bank shots.
The Hawkeye sophomore hit four
straight floor shots at one time in
the contest and during the eve-
ning caged 8 of 15 field goal at-
The 6-7 Logan, also a soph,
did most of his damage under-
neath the hoop. The agile cen-
ter added 9 of 11 free throws to
his seven 'two-pointers in gar-
nering his game high total.
Michigan, feeling the effects of
its weekend trip to and fromIlli-
nois, gave its poorest home show-
ing of the season. Hitting on
only 28 percent of their field at-
tempts, the Wolverines looked
ragged and sloppy as they were
out rebounded, outrun, outpassed
The Maize and Blue was unable
to get through the tight Iowa de-
fense and took most of its shots
from outside. The winners block-'
ed many Wolverine shot's and stole
Along with Jorgensen, John
Codwell stood out in a losing
cause. The senior forward put
together his second straight well
played game, tallying 13 last night

.. . leads Hawkeye win
By HANLEY GURWIN
Following the pattern that has
prevailed for the past few sea-
sons, the beginning of the second
semester finds the Wolverine
hockey team fighting desperately
to earn a playoff spot in the NCAA
hockey tournament to be held
March 11, 12 and 13 at the Broad-
moor Ice Palace at Colorado
Again this year the Michigan
sextet is down but not out, in the
battle for a top spot in tle West-
ern Hockey League. However, it
will take more than a clean sweep
of the remaining games to land
a playoff berth for the Maize and
* * * -
AS OF NOW only North Dakota,
Minnesota, and Michigan are left
as contenders for the two playoffs
berths which go to the first and
second place finishers in the
league. Minnesota and the Nodaks
each have 12% points jfiled up
while the Wolverines have nine
including the two from last night's
win over Denver.
Due to the confusing scoring
system which awards different
point values to the contests de-
pending on the number of times
the teams meet, a more realistic
picture can be painted by looking
at the number of points each
team has lost.
Minnesota has dropped only one
and a half points all season and
right now appears to be a good bet
to return to Colorado Springs. Re-
maining on the Gopher schedule
are four one point games with
Michigan Tech, two two-point
games with Denver, and a pair of
one-pointers here in Ann Arbor
with the Wolverines.
NORTH DAKOTA meanwhile
has already dropped three and aI
half points in league competition,
all of them to Minnesota on three
losses and a tie. The Sioux still
have four games on tap, each
worth two points apiece. Colorado
College and Michigan State pro-
vide the opposition in these cru-
cila contests for the North Dako-
ta sextet, who are trying to land
their first NCAA playoff berth.
Michigan by far has the
toughest task. Not only must the
Wolverine puckmen win all of
their remaining games, but they
have to depend on either North
Dakota or Minnesota dropping
two more points somewhere
along the line.
The Wolverines have lost five
points already and would be prac-
tically mathematically eliminated
should they lose another game.
Coming up on the Wolverine
schedule is the second of the two
game series tonight with Denver,
a two-game set this week-end
against Colorado College at the
Coliseum, a home-and-home se-
ries the following week-end with
Michigan State, and then two final
games here in Ann Arbor with
It will take a lot of good hockey
playing without a single letdown,
combined with a little good luck
for the Wolverines to squeeze in,
but don't count them out of it yet.

days with a net result of two vic-
tories and one defeat.
The lone 1oss was absorbed at

Illini" breezed to an 87-68 romp.

THE REASON for the Wolver-
ine's downfall is not difficult to
figure out. Illinois grabbed no less
than 57 rebounds, Michigan got
only 38. The nineteen point dif-
ference in rebounds is reflected in
the score by the same margin.
