Three Vacation Hoop Wins
By NATE GREENE
The University of Michigan bas-
ketball team made the Christmas
Vacation a fruitful one as it won
three out of four holiday games.
Beginning with a tilt against
Washington of St. Louis, the Wol-
verines embarked on a three game
swing through the west. Besides
the St. Louis team, they also
played Denver and Brigham
After getting off to a shaky
start against Washigton, the
Wolverines broke the game open
with a 26 point splurge in the
last nine minutes. They won, 73-
52. High scorer for the game was
Tom Jorgenson with 23 points.
Kramer in Form r
Especially gratifying to Coach
Bill Perigo was the performance
of Ron Kramer who, because of a
late start, had failed to live up
to pre-season expectations. Kra-
mer hit double figures for the
first time, tossing in 21 points.
The quintet's next stop was
Denver where, despite a 33-point
performance by Denver soph Dick
Brott, it set a fieldhouse record by
running up a 104-point total. The
final score was 104-77.
Michigan sank a much better
than average 42 percent of .its
field goal attempts. Heading the
list of Michigan scorers for the
second straight game was Jor-
genson with twenty-one points.
He was followed by Don Eaddy
who scored 17dpoints and Paul
Groffsky and Jim Barron with 15
points each. Kramer had another
good night as he threw in 12
Meet Brigham Young
With two wins under its belt,
the Michigan team shifted its ac-
tivity from Colorado to Utah,
where it was to face a Brigham
Young team which possessed an
unimpressive two-win, four-loss
After twice fighting back in the
second half, the Wolverines pulled
within three points of the Cou-
gars. With two minutes remaining
they trailed 60-57. In a desperate
attempt to gain possession of the
ball Michigan team was called for
ten fouls, the B.Y.U. team making
good on all of the charity tosses.
The result was a 70-60 loss for
Michigan, the second of the '54-
'55 season against four wins.
After a short break for Christ-
mas the cagers returned to Ann
Arbor to meet Valparaiso in the
Yost Fieldhouse. The game proved
to be no more than a warm-up
for the Wolverines.
Michigan established a ten-
point lead in the first ten min-
utes and continued to add to it
throughout the rest of the first
half, leaving the floor leading
In the second half the Wolver-
ines matched Valpo point for
point, maintaining their 27-point
lead which proved to be the mar-
gin of victory. The final score was
82-55. High scorer in the game
was Forward Ed Eckart of Valpa-
raiso with 18 points, ten of them

cramp. When he got up, the pain
forced him out of the game.
Shearon replaced him.
Eaddy was the only Wolverine to
play the full game. Schlundt was
taken out for seven minutes in the
final period after he had commit-
ted four fouls, but finishct the
game. No Indiana cager fouled out,
but three Wolverines, Kramer,
Lingle, and Eaddy came within'
one foul of leaving the game.

two schools last year, the chain-

verines, 62-60, on a last minute

Despite the fact that Michigan's
football team failed to win the bid
as the Big Ten's representative in
the Rose Bowl, five Michigan
players did make appearances in
year-end bowl games.
Starring for the North in the
Blue-Gray game were Michigan's
captain of last season, Guard Ted
Cachey, and Fullback Fred Baer,
who was selected as the most
valuable player of last year's
squad. Cachey received another
honor as he was elected co-captain
of the Blue team along with Paul
Matz of Notre Dame.
Playing from left half, Baer
more than proved his capabilities
as he figured prominently in both
Blue touchdowns. In the Blue's
first touchdown drive, Baer set up
the score with a 12-yard run
which placed the ball on the
Gray's three yard line. Later in
the game Baer assumed the role
of a pass-catcher as he caught
two aerials in the North squad's
move toward a second touchdown,
the second catch being good for'
the score. This touchdown proved
to be &6cisive as the Blues won
Representing Michigan in the
annual North-South game at Mi-
ami, was quarterback Duncan Mc-
Donald. The South won, 20-17.
Wrapping up the collegiate foot-
ball season for Michigan were
tackles Art Walker and Ron Gey-
er who played in the East-West
game at San Francisco. Both of
them turned in exceptionally fine
games as they played all of the
first half and most of the fourth
quarter. The fine defensive work
by this pair played a big role in
the game as the underdog East
squad turned back 'the Western-
