Johnson, Campbell Lead in Decathlon;

M EL B OU R NE,-Two young
giants, Milt Campbell and Rafer
Johnson, climaxed the two-man
race for the decathlon gold medal
yesterday as the U.S. track and
field team entered the final phase
of its assignment to build up

Big drawing card on the cage varsity was a flashy forward
named Bennie Oosterbaan.
The center was a standout defensive sophomore named
Ernie McCoy, later to become captain of the varsity, coach of
four teams around mid-century, and assistant athletic director.
Then there was a diminutive guard who went by the name
of Ed Chambers.
So the day of reckoning come. The opponent was Iowa,
co-leader the year before, and the date was March 7, 1927-
the seventh of March being the magic number on Michigan
court history. But it looked like it was the Wolverines' unlucky
number when the action got underway. It took more than 10
minutes for the Maize and Blue cagers to find the range from
the floor.
They needed fight and plenty of it if they were to win
the game. Here's where Chambers the unsung hero, stepped
into the picture. Throughout the game he kept his team in the
bitter fight by his sensational shooting.
The score was 27-25, with two. minutes left to play. Now
was the time fo Oosterbaan, experiencing a hcrrenc'ous night,
to come through with the all-important bucket, his lone two
points of the contest.
After Iowa gained possession of the ball, Al Harrison, sub-
stitute Hawkeye guard, drove in on the right hand side of the
keyhole for the basket. But Chambers generated superhuman
effort to block Harrison's layup attempt with less than half a
minute left, forcing the overtime period.
Iowa drew first blood in the extra session, but Chambers
retaliated to tie the score at 29-all. Then, for the ausp'cous
conclusion to his collegiate athletic career, Chambers sank an-
other shot with 47 seconds left on the clock. That basket was
all the Wolverines needed to clinch its first undisputed hoop
