MVichiglan's luckless basketball team encountered last weekend.
WVe doubt if na Big Ten'l team hafis ever beenl forced to hlay suicha
ra'ldically differenlt gamne as Coach Bill Peiigo's cagl ers lhad to Ilast
Mlonday inl contrast to S nturday- night's fiasco with L,is Ang;eles State
~college. Within tivet mainultes of the earli'1er Contest it btC~e ( evidet
that the boy's fromn the Pacific CoaIst would be oultclassed in the 111nals
of ao hligh school tournev in mlost staItes.
V t two nights later the Wolverines found themselves on the
slime court with the tenth-ranked team in the nation. Illinois, and
Sproceeded to play thle favored 111nt1 on even terms for 39 mlinuites
before giving up that one bid: winning. point in the final seconds
of pla).
The "battle" with Los Angeles tte t was a lot more fuln, and uch~li
mor01e succe'ssfuil, from M ichig;an's stalndpoinlt, than M 1ond1ay',s hair'-

One of the Los Afngeles eagt~rs did wear shoes thlt %were tie-

inches above the ground were kept in hiding;.
Los Antgeles' assistant :athletic director, wlho as in town tudy
