As Michigan prepares to open
its 1954-55 basketball season against
Pittsburgh tomorrow night, the
memories of many Wolverine cage
fans sweep back through the years
to a cold March night in 1948.
It was on that evening that Mich-
igan basketball reached' its mod-
ern day pinnacle, its last claim

gain the Big Nine basketball cham-
Iowa, led by diminutive Murray
Weir, constituted the last stum-
bling block to the fired up Wolver-
ines, and the Cowles squad pro-
ceeded to remove the obstacle with
At half time, Michigan led, 29-
22, and the title seemed within
grasp, but as the seconl half
opened, the Iowans came roaring
back to knot the score at 31-31.
The Wolverines had become panic-
stricken and Missed on 14 straight
field goal attempts, plus a pair of
free throws.
Substitutes Help
Suddenly Cowles called a time
out. Off the bench raced substi-
tutes Hall Morrill and Boyd Mc-
Caslin. Teaming with the great
Mark Suprunowicz, Bill Roberts,
and Pete Elliot, the pair sparked
the Wolverines to their first title
since 1929.
As the crowd went wild, Michi-
gan dumped in eight straight
points, and the Hawkeyes were a
broken outfit. With the lanky Rob-
erts turning in some nice defens-
ive work, the Wolverines coasted
home the victors and champions.
A wild celebration was touched
off, and Michigan had seen a bas-
ketball night that it will long re-
member. It had seen a basketball
champion crowned. Today, nearly
seven years later, it is still waiting
for another.

Michigan begins its rugged three
month long winter sports schedule
tonight as the Wolverine hockey
team opens its 1954-55 season in
the first of a two game weekend
series with the McGill University

Tank Squad
Virtually buried under the press
notices of the world's two fast-
est individual medley swimmers,
Michigan's Fritz Myers is poten-
tially one of the best medley men
in the country today.
A sophomore, Myers will make
his collegiate swimming debut to-
night in the Michigan AAU Meet
at the varsity pool. Although he
has been overshadowed by the
record-breaking performances of
his teammates Bumpy Jones and
Jack Wardrop in his specialty,
Myers has turned in medley times
which last year would have plac-
ed him among the top ten swim-
mers in the country.
As a freshman, the versatile
Ann Arborite covered the 150 yards
in 1:34.8. This clocking, were
freshmen eligible, would h'ave giv-
en Myers ninth place on the Col-
legiate All-American Team.
Dangerous in Sprints
Like most individual-medley-
men, Myers is a dangerous oppon-
ent in other events besides his
specialty. His backstroke time as
a freshman of 1:00.9 is fast in
any man's tank. He is a respec-
table sprinter also, having record-
ed times of 24 seconds flat in the
50 yard free-style and :52.6 in the
century sprint.
This versatility will give Myers
a chance to show his ability often
and in a variety of events in his
future career for the Maize and
Blue. Coach Gus Stager has him
entered in four events for to-
night's meet: the 50 yard free, the
100 back, and the two relays.
Myers is "home-town talent,"
something rare in Michigan ath-
letics. His high-school swimming
career was splashed out on the
Ann Arbor High team, where he

end's hckey games will be on

sparked the squad with his med-
ley performances, and competed
in the free-style and backstroke
as well.
High School All-American
He placed third in the state
meet in the individual his senio
year with a time of "about 1:40.'
This clocking gave him 18th place
on the Interscholastic All-Ameri-
can Team. He swam on the Ann
Arbor 200 yard free-style relay
which placed 14th in the nation.
A hard-driving comeptitor, My-
ers has the necessary strength,
ability and ambition to take him
to the top. He is in the unique
position of having to beat his own
teammates to gain that summit.


IT'S HOCKEY TIME AGAIN! -- Going through preparations for tonight's opener with McGill
are the three men who comprise Michigan's first line, George Dunningan (6), Captain Bill Mac-


Vatrland (7), andi Jerry nKarpinkia (8).

In contrast to Michigan's green

Last year McGill, coached by
"Rocky" Robillard, gained an even

Wolverines, both of which were
played before near-capacity crowds

7-2 triumph over the Redmen, but

nadians to win, 7-5.

right foot in its first game. In a

play Wolverines, the Redmen

the size of the squad promises.
Sophomores Flank MacFarland
Flanking MacFarland in the Wil-
verines first line tonight will be
two sophomore wingmen, George
Dinningan and Jerry Karpinka.
With Rendall at center, the sec-
ond line's wing positions will be
manned by two lettermen, Jay
Goold and Neil Buchanan.
Another veteran forward, Yves
Hebert, will be missing from the
lineup this weekend because he
has not fully recovered from a con-
cussion suffered last month in a
collision with freshman Doug Ru-
dolph during practice.
The absence of Hebert may -be
somewhat offset by the recent ad-
dition to,the squad of sophomore
Baden Cosby, 155-pound wingman
from Gravenhurst, Ontario. Cosby
will probably see occasional action
against McGill.
Howes To Start
Another sophomore of whom
much is expected is goalie Lorne
Howes. He has been given the nod
over veteran Bill Lucier for to-
