THE FABLED BROADMOOR HOTEL, HOST TO THE
NCAA HOCKEY TOURNEY

JAMMED BROADMOOR ICE PALACE AWAITS OPENING OF

leers Return to Broadmoor
For Eighth Straight Season
Will it ever end?
This is the question always prevalent in the minds of the nation's
college hockey fans, as year after year Michigan's Wolverines come
charging back into the NCAA ice tourney at Colorado Springs.
It is an honor that can come to only four of the sixty-some
college hockey teams each year. Yet March 10th Michigan will go
back to the Broadmoor for the eighth time in a row, a record unparal-
leled in NCAA history.
The Skin of Their Teeth
Every year, Michigan gets in by the skin of its teeth. It takes a
first or second place finish in the Western Intercollegiate Hockey
League to earn the berth at the Broadmoor, and for the last several
years, the Wolverines of Vic Heyliger have wafted until the final
weeks of the season to make their
bid. In a traditional heart-stop-
ping stretch drive - they always
make it.
Certainly Michigan has had its
share of good luck in making the
tourney so many times, but once
they get out there, this luck doesn't
end.
On four of their last seven trips
to the National Championships,
the Heyliger men have managed
to carry off top honors. On the
other three trips, they finished a
solid third.
The tourney pits the two top
teams in the East against the best
the West can offer, and it makes
>fno difference to Michigan who
the opposition is. In 1948, the
year the tourney was started, the
Wolverines smashed two eastern
teams, Boston College and Dart-
mouth, to gain the crown.
Big Streak Begins
After a two-year drought, which
F :,:: found Michigan losing to Dart-
"" mouth and Boston University, the
NCAA ICE CHAMPIONSHIPS Wolverines began the greatest vie
tory streak in the history of the
tourney.
In 1951, they shelled Boston
University and Brown to gain the
national crown.
DA LY sThe big guns of Michigan con-
tinued to roar the following year,
as the Heyliger forces captured
H Tthe 1952 title by skating over St.'
Lawrence and Colorado College.
They didn't stop at that, for in
A ET U RE 1953 the Wolverines marched to
an unprecedented third straight
national championship, as they
smashed Boston University and
Story by Minnesota.
PHIL DOUGLIS Last season the string was
snapped at three straight by an
inspired Rensselaer squad that
knocked off Michigan and Minne-
Photos Courtesy of sota on successive nights to take
NCAA Tourney the crown.
Another Crown?
Heyliger's charges will attempt
to get back into the winners circle
again this season, as it shoots for
its fifth national crown. The oppo-
sition will be plenty tough.
At this writing, the Eastern
teams still in contention were
Harvard, Clarkson,,and St. Law-
rence, and all three teams have
shown that they have dangerous
potential.
However, the real thorn in Mi-
chigan's side should be the WIHL
champions, Colorado College. As-
,r: ..'suming that both the western out-
fits would win their opening
games, a rematch of last year's
Christmas time set-to is in order.
The Tigers bumped Michigan
twice in their last encounter, but
this time Bob Schiller is back in
action, and Mike Buchanan will
also be meeting the Coloradomen
for the first time. These tremen-
dous additions to the Wolverine
defense may be enough to spill
the Tigers from their pedestal, and
bring the NCAA crown back to
Ann Arbor once again.

Fun For All
Hockey is not the only facet
of the big Broadmoor extravagan-
za. - The whole city of Colorado
Springs becomes hockey conscious
at tourney time. The tournament,
staged every year at the tiny
JOHN MATCHEFTS GETS MVP Broadmoor ice palace, is a con-
AWARD IN 1953 glomeration of pageantry, sight-
seeing, and pulchritude. Beauti-
ful Queens crown the contending
teams as they arrive at the
Springs, with huge ten - gallon
hats. Sightseeing trips are on the
agenda, including excursions to
Pikes Peak, the Will Rogers Shrine
and nearby Garden of the Gods.
Dances and receptions are also
on the busy schedule, and the
famed resort hotel offers all of its
facilities to the visitors.
Reconverted Polo Palace
The Ice Palace itself is a re-
converted Polo Palace, adorned
with stuffed animal heads. Though
limited in seating capacity, it
serves as home of the National
Championships every year through

Dick Dunnigan's three goals
sparked a five-man scoring attack
last night as Michigan's playoff-
bound hockey squad toppled Mich-
igan Tech for the second even-
ing in a row by an 8-4 margin at
the Coliseum.
Reserve goalie Bill Lucier of
the Wolverines had a busy night
in his first starting assignment of
the season as he turned away a
total of 38 shots to aid his team'
in its eighth consecutive victory
this year.
A capacity crowd representing
partisans of both schools saw
Michigan take advantage of some
early Tech penalties to forge into
a quick 3-0 lead which was never
lost during the game.
Tommy Rendall joined Dunni-
gan in getting more than one
goal for the Wolverines as he
slashed two shots past Huskie
goalie Bob McManus. Captain Bill
MacFarland, Neil Buchanan, and
brother Mike Buchanan each con-
tributed single scores to the win-
ning total. Two Tech goals were
registered by Ron Stenlund, while
Jean Barbe and Jack McCanus
garnered the others.
Rendall opened the scoring at
2:37 of the initial period with a'
ten-foot drive which slid between
goalie McManus' legs. Within the
next six minutes Dunnigan was
two-thirds of the way towards his
first hat trick of the season as he
twice out-maneuvered McManus.
A Stenlund goal at 10:35 made the
first period score 3-1.
Dunnigan gained his third goal
earlier when he drove in from the
left and banged home a pass from
Rendall at 12:43.
After a Tech rally had moved the
Huskies to within two points of
Michigan early in the final period,
Rendall broke the spurt at 4:22
when he grabbed a misguided Tech

pass and led the opposition defense
down the ice to cash in on Michi-
gan's seventh goal.
MacFarland closed the scoring
with less than two minutes re-
maining in the game as he took
a Jerry Karpinka pass around the
hard-pressed Tech goaltender.
At one point in the contest, with
a two man disadvantage, the Wol-
verines practiced stalling tactics
which successfully ate up the pen-
alty time. This, along with some
fancy passing plays, .gave the fans
a hint of what Michigan is plan-
ning to use in next week's appear-
ance in the NCAA playogs at Col-
orado Springs.

By ALAN EISENBERG
A relentless and ceaseless second
half drive by Michigan State en-
abled the Spartans to trounce
Michigan, 83-68, before a near ca-
pacity crowd at Yost Field House
yesterday afternoon.
The victory gave the visiting
cagers a final Big Ten record of
eight wins in 14 games and sole
possession of fourth place in the
scrambled Western Conference,
race.
TV Jinx
Countless millions, of television
viewers saw the Wolverines go
down to their third successive vid-
eo defeat and their fifth straight
setback. Michigan, possessor of an
unimpressive record of four wins
in 13 conference tries, slips into
a four-way tie -for seventh place.
The loss to MSO dropped the
Maize and Blue below the .5001
mark for the first time this sea-
son. Michigan has now won 10 of
21 contests.
Yesterday's game was similar to
many that the Wolverines have
played, in this waning campaign.
Michigan started off well, jumped
to an early lead, was overtaken in
the second half, and faded badly.
Spartans Ignited
With the Wolverines leading, 56-
48, and almost five minutes gone
in the second half, the Spartans
began to move. Reserve forward,
Jim F~arris, hit on a lay-up, Pat
Wilson connected on two free
throws, and lanky Julius McCoy
scored on a fast break. Don Eaddy
slowed up the Spartan advance
with a jump shot to give the
Wolverines a 58-54 lead with 13:31
remaining.
Michigan State refused to be
held down. Bob Armstrong hit on
a foul and McCoy flipped five
points through the net to give the
Spartans a two point advantage.
The two squads exchanged a few
baskets, and then the winners be-
gan to draw still further away.
Bob Devenny hit for five points
to lead a Spartan splurge and

boost the lead to 81-66 with less
than two minutes to play. .
Neither team could dominate
in the first half. The score was
tied nine times and the lead
changed hands on 11 occasions.
An outbreak of points by the Wol-
verines in the fading moments of
the half gave them a 46-40 lead
when the buzzer sounded.
'M' Starts Off Well
Michigan continued along in
fine style in the first few moments
after the intermission. A tip-in by
Kramer with 2:20 gone gave the
hosts an eight point advantage--
the biggest they enjoyed all day.
Soon after, though, the Spartans
began to apply the pressure.
Kramer was high scorer with
20 points on eight field goals and
four fouls. Tom Jorgenson and
Eaddy racked up 15 tallies and
Captain Paul Groffsky garnered
13 markers. Devenny, with nine
free throws and - five field goals
led the MSC attack. Al Ferrari,
McCoy, and Peterson all flipped
15 points through the nets.
The winners were extremely ac-
curate from the field. MSC hit on
27 of 61 floor attempts, an excel-
lent 44 per cent. They were par-
ticularly sharp in the first 20
minutes of play when they con-
nected on 52 per cent of their
field goal tries.
Michigan could not come close
to this performance. The losers
were successful on 32 per cent of
their floor attempts. Eaddy and
Jorgenson had the best individual
percentages, both hitting close to
half of their floor shots.
Iowa Snares
League Title;
Gophers Lose
MINNEAPOLIS (AP)-Wisconsin's
fiery Dick Miller blasted Minneso-
ta's remaining Big Ten title hopes
into oblivion Saturday night lead-
ing a 78-72 Badger victory that
gave Iowa the undisputed confer-
ence championship and an NCAA
tournament berth.
The battling Badgers, 14-point
underdogs, opened up a nine point
lead midway through the second
half and shielded it against a Go-
pher rally when Miller hit eight
straight points late in the game.
Wisconsin captured the lead for
good in the opening seconds of the
second half when Miller drilled in
a jump shot from 15 feet out for
a 32-30 advantage. From there
Miller, Dick Cable and Curt Muel-
ler kept the Badgers in front de-
spite frantic Gopher efforts to
bridge the gap.
