101 point total which they amassed
in defeating Pittsburgh the previous
Scoring honors for the Maize-and-
Blue cagers were spread fairly
even, as center Harvey Williams
and Groffsky scored 12 points each
and forward Tom Jorgenson added
eight tallies to the Wolverine total.
Rebounding Weak
Both squads were weak in re-
bounding during the entire contest.
Michigan managed to gather in 18,
while Butler grabbed 14. The bulk
of Michigan's work under the
boards was done by Williams and
Groffsky, who totaled 11 rebounds
between them.
Kramer, the sophomore forward
who was expected to break into the
starting lineup when he became
adjusted to the change from the
gridiron to the basketball court,
saw considerable action but still
seemingly hasn't rounded into
shape. The -3" cager scored five
points but appeared slow and often-
times somewhat awkward.
Tom Maentz, another forward
who is trying to bridge the gap
from football to basketball, put in
a. short appearance but seemed to
be gaining ability under the back-
boards. The sophomore from Hol-
land, Mich., grabbed two rebounds1
during his brief stay on the court.
In contrast to his seemingly im-
proved play against Pittsburgh,
Williams, another question-mark
cager, was erratic last night, play-
ing brilliantly at times and only
average at others. -

Tables Turned
The Wolverines found the tables
turned in the second half, however,
as Cox hit consistently to lead his
teammates to a 37.5 per cent sec-
ond half shooting average, while
Michigan slipped to a mark of 26
per cent. In the end, the shooting
percentages were about even, but
the Maize-and-Blue took 26 more
shots than the Bulldog cagers, and
this told the story.
