DOWN LCA, 52-39:
Phi Kappa Sigs Reach 'A' Hoop Finals

Wolverines Face Harvard
In First Round of Tourney

Coming from behind and eras-
ing an eight point deficit, the Phi
Kappa Sigma 'A' cagers gained a
berth in the fraternity first place
playoff finals by going on to beat
Lambda Chi Alpha rather sound-
ly, 52-39.
The big men in Phi Kappa Sig-
ma's second half drive were Ernie
Meyers and Jim Vukovich. Mey-
Es threw in 14 of 'his 16 point
total in the last half and Vuko-
vich made 12 of his 20 points
v:he they were needed most.
i nother factor adding to the
Phi Kappa Sigma victory was its
change in defense. By bottling up
Lambda Chi Alpha's big men they
cut down their opponent's offen-
sive power considerably.
The winners will play Phi Delta
' Theta in the finals.
The Phi Delta Theta 'B' team
easily moved into the second
place play-off finals as it defeated
Delta Tau Delta, 48-22. The vic-
tors' main assets were a fast break,
good rebounding and a tight de-
fense which made it hard for
Delta Tau Delta to get a shot

away. Scotty Crisler collected 17
points for the Phi Delt cause.
In two other fraternity con-
tests, Delta Upsilon 'A' team whip-
ped Phi Kappa Tau, 34-13, and
the Phi Kappa Sigma 'B' edged
Sigma Alpha Mu, 26-21.
In a residence hall game, Win-
chell almost caught Adams after
Big Splash
Psi Upsilon's Dana Larson
won the all-campus diving
championship last night at the
I-M pool by compiling 87.6
points. Second was Gil Coleman
of Sigma Chi, 84.9, and Phi
Delts' Ed Shannon and ATO's
Tom Peterson tied for third
with scores of 73.5.
making up a 10 point deficit, but
lost out at the final siren, 30-26.
Bob Groff tallied 14 points for
Adams and Ted Treiber scored 11
for Winchell.
A close independent battle end-

ed up with the Farouks scoring
a victory from AFROTC, 49-47.
Other basketball scores of the
evening were: Latvians 45, Euro-
pean 20; Simple Seven 27, Hawai-
ians 18; Phil Mich 21, Cardinals
18; Delta Chi 51, Delta Sigma Phi
29; and Theta Delta Chi defeated

Cage Squad Impressive
In Final-Game Triumph

ai t i

By NATE GREENE
The last look at the 1954-55 bas-
ketball season for thenU. of M.
cagers was a good one as they
managed to partially salvage an-
other disastrous Big Ten cam-
paign, Monday night, by defeat-
ing Iowa, the new Conference
champ.
The fact that they had already
been assured of undisputed pos-
session of the title might well
have been the cause for the Hawk-
eyes' poor showing against the
Wolverines. They played listless
ball, only occasionally demon-
strating to the spectators the type
of play which carried them to the
top of the heap.
Michigan constantly foiled their
offensive pattern. The beautiful
weaves and excellent ball-hand-
ling, which caused the Wolverines
so much trouble in their last en-
counter with Iowa, were ineffec-
tive and at times even sloppy
Monday night.
Rebounding Tops
This criticism, however, is not
meant to show the Michigan squad
in a negative light. A team such
as the Wolverines, which makes
good on almost 50 per cent of its
shots, is going to be tough meat
for any quintet to beat, even a
conference champion. There was
no doubt about the fact that it
was the Wolverines' night; they
weren't to be had by anyone.
Their rebounding was almost
flawless; Groffsky, Kramer and
Stern had the boards covered like
a blanket, and, as a result, the
Hawkeyes were seldom able to fol-
low up on their shots.

SPRING WEEKEND
than

Aside from the board work,
Michigan's defense, man for man,
was also outstanding. Especially
notable was the work of two nhen
playing their last game for Mich-
igan, Captain Paul Groffsky and
Don Eaddy.
Eaddy has been rated as the
Wolverines' top defensive man,
and has usually drawn the job of
guarding the opponent's offensive
threat. Monday night he again
turned in a top-notch perform-
ance.
Groffsky played one of his best
games. His play against Iowa,
while being far from extraordi-
nary scoring-wise, was that of an
invaluable team player. Occa-
sionally sliding into the post posi-
tion, he picked up many assists
and gave the spectators reason to
wonder as to why he had not
been used more often in the key-
hole.
Jorgenson Effective at Guard
Big gun in the Michigan scoring
attack was Tom Jorgenson, who
came close to cracking the all-
time Michigan single-game record.
This performance only served to
point up his effectiveness at a
guard slot.
Even with the return of Jim!
Barron to the starting lineup next
fall, it might not prove a bad idea
to leave Jorgenson at this posi-
tion and play Barron at forward.

By PHIL DOUGLIS
Special to The Daily
COLORADO SPRINGS--Mich-
gan's powerful Wolverines open
their bid for a fifth National Col-
legiate Ice Hockey championship
here tonight at the Broadmoor
Ice Palace as they take on Har-
vard's Ivy League champions in
the opener of the Eighth Annual
NCAA tourney.
The winner of this game will
play the winner of tomorrow
night's Colorado College-St. Law-
rence battle for the national cham-
pionship on Saturday night.
Heyliger Optimistic
Michigan coach Vic Heyliger
was optimistic as he watched the
huge Maize and Blue banner
hoisted over the Broadmoor yes-
terday for the eighth straight
year. "If we can stay away from
those penalties, I think we can
take it all," the genial coach re-
marked.
Despite his optimism, the huge
gold and black Colorado College
pennant, the crimson banner of
Harvard, and the red and white
of St. Lawrence were also outlin-
ed against the late afternoon sky
here . . . a sober reminder that a
national title is going to take some
Cagers .Pick
Jorgenson
Guard Tom Jorgenson was elect-
ed captain of next year's Michi-
gan basketball team yesterday.
The six-foot junior, who hails
from Chicago, succeeds outgoing
senior Paul Groffsky. Jorgenson
scored 333 points this year, sec-
ond highest total on the club, and
helped Bill Perigo's squad consid-
erably with his fine playmaking.
His deadly outside set shot and
excellent dribbling ability made
'him one of the Big Ten's best all-
around ballplayers. He probably
played his finest game Monday
night when he scored 26 points to
lead Michigan to a 74-58 upset
win over champion Iowa.
His 16.7 points-per-game aver-
age in Conference play was the
fourteenth best in the league.

mighty fine hockey on the part of
any team.
The Crimson boast a 16-2-1 rec-
ord, the best in the Ivy League
since 1937. Harvard's top game was
against St. Lawrence, whom it de-
feated, 3-2, in overtime. The losses
were at the hands of McGill (2-1),
Boston College (4-3), and the tie
was a 4-4 stalemate against
Brown.
Harvard Not Too Strong
Despite this fine record there
is a tendency here to seed Har-
vard as the weakest of the tour-
ney's four teams. HEowever, last
year's third ranked team, Rensse-
laer, upset the applecart and took
the national title-so one can nev-
er be sure in this game of college
hockey.
The Wolverines meanwhile are
the hottest team in the tourna-
ment, having won eight straight
league games, against some of the
toughest opposition in the nation.
The Heyliger crew worked out
in the Ice Palace here yesterday
for nearly an hour, and looked
very sharp. They have to be sharp,
for Ralph "Cooney" Weiland of
Harvard has his ace, Bill Cleary,
the East's most valuable player,
ready to throw at the Wolverines.
Cleary Has 84
Cleary hit for 37 goals and 47
assists this season, giving him 84
points. Also on the Crimson roster
is sensational goalie Chuck Flynn.
The giant 56-passenger Broad-
moor airliner arrived here yester-
day at 4:00 clock, and a roaring
welcome was accorded the partici-
pants. The ticket situation here is
desperate. Seats for all games have
been gone for three months.
Rarely before has such a collec-
tion of stars graced the same ice
arena at once as we saw yesterday.
Besides Michigan's famed duo of
Bill MacFarland and Tommy Ren-
dall, who along with goalie Lorne
Howes, and defensman Bob Schil-
ler form the nucleus of Heyliger's
team, the three other squads had
their share of stars also.
MacFarlane Paces Larries
The St, Lawrence Larries, attir-
ed in snappy red and white uni.-
forms, are paced by senior Brian
MacFarlane-one of the East's
greatest centers. In the Larrie
nets, Al Sloan holds forth.
Colorado College, no stranger to
Broadmoor ice (its home rink' is
champion of the western Inter-
collegiate Hockey League, and
Cheddy Thompson has probably
the nation's top defenseman, Cap-
tain Phil Hilton, along with high
scoring Clare Smith, and sterling
goalie Jeff Simus ready to throw
at Tiger foes.
Face-off time for all night
games will be 8:15 p.m. Mountain
Time (10:15 Ann Arbor time).
It has been 13 years since Michi-
gan has played Harvard in any
sport. In 1942, the Wolverines de-
feated the Crimson in football,
35-7. The only hockey game ever
played between the two schools
was in 1931, when Harvard down-
ed the Wolverines, 7-0.
