WIHL Powers

Ground Game on Increase,
According to Survey by AP

DIMINUTIVE DUNNIGAN DRILLS ONE-Dick Dunnigan, 135-1b. right wing of the Michigan hockey team, fires a shot at the Denver
goalie in one of last year's meetings between the two teams. They meet again Friday and Saturday, Dec. 21 and 22 as part of the
Wolverines' Colorado trip in which they also meet Colorado College. All four games will be two-point games in the standings. Denver
will be trying to catch up in the series, which now stands at 7-4-1 in favor of Michigan.
Arizin Leads Johnston, Pettit m NBA Scoring Race

Michigan will begin defense of
its WIHL crown with away games
against Colorado College and Den-
ver University next week.
Colorado, which finished third
in last year's standing, has gotten
off to a fast start this year, beat-
ing their Alumni, 9-5, and defeat-
ing the Humbolt Indians in two
non-league games.
Wishart Leads Bengals
The Bengals are led by Captain
Don Wishart, a top defenseman
with one of the hardest blueline
shots in the league. His cohorts
include forwards John Andrews,
who scored 52 points last year,
Bunt Hubchik, Bob McCusker and
Ike Scott; centers, Bill Hay, Ron
Laughlin and Gerry Capello; de-
fensemen Gary Hughes and Dick
McGhee, and goalies Bob South-
wood and Jerry Art.
Denver, whom the Wolverines
play along with Colorado on their
first western trip, is having a re-
building year, according to its
coach, Murray Armstrong.
With only a handful of return-
ing lettermen, Armstrong will have
his troubles, but his returnees do
include such stalwarts as for-
wards John Hudson and Jim
Swain, centers Ken Naylor and
Bill Nixon and defensemen Dave
Rogers and Ed Zemerau. The Pi-
oneers have no experienced goalie
Michigan Tech, which last year
battled Michigan to the finals of
the NCAA playoffs only to lose,
7-5, has compiled a 3-1 record so
far this year, losing only to Tor-

onto. The Huskies defeated Port
Arthur, a junior hockey league
team, 13-4 and 8-2, and split their
series with Toronto, winning the
first game, 5-4, and losing the
second, 2-0.
The Huskies are led by his year's
captain, Jack McManus, who
started off the season with a four-
goal outburst against port Arthur.,
Other returning lettermen in-
clude goalies Bob McManus and
Andy LaHaye; defensemen Wally
Crockatt, Lorne Holden, Harvey
There will be an important
meeting of the 'M' club tonight
at 7:30 at which time the club
group picture will be taken.
--Tom Maentz
Glover and Willie Tattetsall;
wingmen Bill McLay, Ron Sten-
lund, Pete Aubry, Tony Cuculic
and Ray Merrifield, and centers
Cliff Wylie, Tom Kennedy and
Lorne LaHaye.
North Dakota, which finished
fifth last year, seems to be revi-
talized for this year's play. The
Sioux have won three of their first
four games, defeating Michigan
State twice, 4-1 and 1-0, and split-
ting a pair with St. Bonaventure,
losing 4-2 and winning 7-6.
Minnesota, a fourth-place fin-
isher last year, has yet to start
its regular season's play, while
Michigan State, continuing last
year's losing ways, has already
dropped two league games to
North Dakota.

NEW YORK OP)-Ojit of a col-
lege football season that had
everything from drab tie games
to that weird 55-46 scoring match
between Army and Colgate, there
emerged one distinct trend in 1956.,
Although this was described in
various ways by the sports writers
and broadcasters contributing to
the Associated Press postseasonI
survey, it could be summed up in
two words-"ball control."
15 of 100 Agree
No fewer than 15 of about 100
observers put it just that way.
Others mentioned increasing and
heavy emphasis on the ground
game, as contrasted to the passing
that received so much attention a
few years ago.
A good many ascribed the ten-
dency to run with the ball instead
of throw it to the widespread pop-
ularity of the split T formation-
primarily a running and ball con-
trol offense. One writer described
it as "the cloud of dust and five
yards split-T offense."
Running Emphasized
Other ways of describing the
general trend were the increased'
use of multiple offenses and the

old single and double wing attacks
-all of which emphasize running
rather than passing-and a gen-
eral movement toward stronger,
more varied defensive football.
Statistics Agree
The statistics bear out the writ-
ers' opinions in this respect. Late
season figures from the NCAA
Service Bureau showed 10 of the
top 15 teams in rushing offense
also among the 15 leaders in total
offense but only four of the passing
leaders in the same group.

Last week's National Basketball
Association action reached an 11-
year peak i offense.
Philadelphia's Paul Arizin is the
undisputed scoring leader with
489 points and a 24.5 average.
In last week's games. Arizin

helped establish the new record
by tallying 58 points in two games,
thereby moving ahead of his team-
mate, Neil Johnston, in the scor-
ing race.,I
Johnston caged 46 points in the
two games and is second in thej
league with 477.

Sport Shorter

Bob Cousy of Boston was the
second hottest scorer in last week's
torrid action. The Celtic star
poured in 113 points in four games
and climbed up to sixth in the
scoring race.
He also set up 39 of his team's
baskets and moved far in front
in assists with 141 to 88 ')y second
place Maurice Stokes of Rochester.
Third place in the scoring race,
behind Arizin and Johnston, is
occupied by Bob Pettit of St. Louis,
who scored 84 markers in four
games last week to bring his total
up to 459 points.
Boston led the team scoring in
last week's barrage at the hoops.
with an average of 113 points. It
ran its season's average to 105.91
points ' a game.
The league as a whole averaged
102 markers per game in last
week's 15 contests and boosted the
circuit's 82 game average to 96.6.

In Tuesday night's games of this
week, Boston barraged the Fort
Wayne baskets for 113 points and
beat the Pistons, 113-97. The St.
Louis Hawks outscored the New
York Knickerbockers, 137-128. and
the Philadelphia Warriers edged

Seixas Says He'll Play
PERTH, Australia-A stabbing
shoulder pain struck Vic Seixas
yesterday on the eve of the draw
for the in t e r z o n e Davis Cup
matches -with India but the for-
mer national tennis champion
from Philadelphia insisted he
would be able to play.
"I think it is just a knotted mus-
cle in the base of my neck," said
the 33-yr.-old Davis Cup veteran.
"It must have been caused by the,
wind. I am sure it is not a serious
strain or anything like that."
Seixas and Herbie Flam of Bev-
erly Hills, Calif., are scheduled to
be drawn today for tomorrow's
opening singles matches against
Ramanathan Krishnan and Nor-
esh Kumar of India.
