Four Michigan Matmen
In NCAA Tournament

Hawkeyes Defeat Temple;
San Francisco Wins, 86-68

By DAVE RORABACHER
Oklahoma A & M will be seeking
its 18th national mat title in 26
years when the NCAA Wrestling
Championships get under way on
the Aggie campus at Stillwater this
afternoon.
Once again the fabulous men
from Wolverine Coach Cliff Keen's
m .alma mater will be favored to cap-
Former Star Dies
CRYSTAL FALLS, Mich (A')

Michigan's 1927 Big Ten bas-
ketball champions and former
teammate of Bennie Ooster-
baan, died suddenly here Wed-
nesday night of a heart ail-
ment.
ture the team laurels, although,
surprisingly, their expected win-
ning margin is a small one.
The four man Wolverine con-
tingent of captain Mike Rodri-
guez, Jack Marchello, Frank Hirt,
and Dan Deppe is too small to
even be in contention for the team
title but will concentrate on gar-
nering individual honors.
Rodriguez Leads 'M'
Rodriguez, two-time Big Ten,
champion and runnerup in last
year's national tournament at 157
pounds figures to ha e the best
chance for a title, but he will be

forced to turn in one of the best
performances of his career in or-
der to annex it.
His competition will include such
outstanding greats as Larry Ten-
Pas of Illinois and Pittsburgh's
Dave Johnson..
Local fans will recall that Ten-
Pas is the grappler whom Rodri-
guez pinned to win the Confer-
ence crown while Johnson is re-
sponsible for the Wolverine cap-
tain's lone defeat of the season,
that coming on a-3 decision in
Michigan's first dual meet.
Marchello, 12.7-pound Western
Conference champion, will drop
down to 167 in his national bid.
However, he is accorded little
chance of winning out over the
nation's best.
Hirt will move down to the 130-
pound division after having gar-
nere4 second in the Big Ten at
137. Deppe will compete at his
regular 123-pound position.
Carrying the main hopes of a
Big Ten team victory will be a
strong Iowa squad of nine men.

capture several more honors on
the national scene.

Special To The Daily
EVANSTON, Ill.,-Everything
went according to form last night
at McGaw Field House.
San Francisco's Don's, obviously
playing under wraps, waltzed to
an easy 86-68 win over a mis-
matched Southern Methodist Uni-
versity five. In the opener, Iowa
stopped a gallant Temple squad,
83-76.
The winners will meet for the
championship before another cap-
acity crowd this evening. The con-
solation game, getting under way
at 8 p.m. (EST), pits Temple
against SMU.
Within eight minutes of the
opening half, the defending champ
Dons had better' than a 10-point
edge. From that point on, prac-
tically the only interest the sell-
out crowd had was to see whether
the Dons and Bill Russell could
live up to their press notices.
Dons Not Pressed
The winners and the 6' 10" cen-
ter did not really impress; they
played just hard enough to win.
Every time the Mustangs moved
close, San Francisco started to
press harder. Russell, though he
scored 17 points, had only a few
b)right moments in the dull game.
The opening game, on the other
hand, was one of the most ex-
citing to be played here in many a
day. Two defense-minded teams
threw caution to the winds and
Track Squad
To See Actionr
This Weekend
There's no rest for Michigan's
trackmen.
At a time when most varsity
athletes aren't worrying about for-
mal competition, many of Coach
Don Canham's men are showing
their wares before fans at various
indoor meets.
Take this weekend, for instance.
Ten -Wolverines will compete in
two important indoor extrava-
ganzas.
An eight-man contingent will
be on hand for the annual Chica-
go Daily News Relays tomorrow
night.
Eeles Landstrom, in the pole
vault, Jim Pace, in the 60-yard
dash, Captain Ron Wallingford,
in the two-mile run, and high-
jumper Brendan O'Reilly are slat-
ed to see action in the Windy City.
High - jumper M a r k Booth
and former Michigan miler, John
Moule, have arrived at Montreal,
where they will compete in the
Eastern Canadian Indoor Track
Championships.

Dirty Buck
White Buck

played a wide-open offensive game
which had the crowd roaring con-
stantly.
Iowa just refused to buckle un-
der the relentless pressure of the
underdog Temple quintet. With
only 3:10 remaining in the game,
the Owls had reduced a 12-point
lead to a narrow 75-72 margin.
But the Hawkeyes again pulled
away-this time for keeps.
The difference between the two
squads was accuracy from the foul
line. Temple made only six of 17
from the charity lane-an inept
36 per cent. -
High scorer in the tilt was
Iowa's Bill Logan, with 36 points.
But the individual stars of the
contest were Temple's Hal Lear
with 32 and Guy Rodgers with 28.
The two guards ripped through
the Hawkeye defense constantly
for picture-book layups. They
passed and dribbled superbly-set-
ting up numerous scoring plays.
