WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. -
Purdue virtually ended Michigan's
Big Ten basketball aspirations here
last night, nipping the Blue, 66-63.
Sophomore guard Chuck Kehrt
was the main spark for the Boiler-
makers, hitting 19 points and
breaking the Wolverines' backs in
the final moments.
Ron Kramer led the losers with
Tied for Sixth
As a result of last night's Con-
ference play, Michigan is tied with
Illinois, which lost .to Michigan
State, 89-83, for sixth place, both
teams having 5-5 records. Purdue,
now 6-5, is fifth.
In other Big Ten games, Minne-
sota whipped Wisconsin, 85-53,
and Indiana held on to first place
by downing Iowa, 90-76.

Then Joe Campbell, a 5'7" guard,
drove in to make it 64-61. Michi-
gan guard Jim Shearon, who
played excellently all night, missed

Purdue got the ball, and Camp-
bell threw a court-length pass to
Kehrt, who hit the team's final
two points as the Wolverines were
caught flat-footed by the play.
M. C. Burton was fouled by
Campbell in the waning moments,
and made both charity shots, but
Michigan's Tom Raisor missed a
similar opportunity when Camp-
bell fouled him seconds later, and
that was the contest.
Kramer played well in the sec-
ond half, forcing Purdue's star
center, Lamar Lundy, to foul out
with about 3 minutes left. His
shooting in the final stages of the
game kept the Wolverines in it
all the way.
Interestingly enough, Purdue
made 18 baskets in the second half
and no free throws, missing four
attempts from the foul-shot line.
Shearon's jump shot was effec-
tive, as he made over half of his
shots from the filoor for eight
two-pointers. His 17 was second
high for Michigan.

After a slightly discouraging
start this season, the Michigan
wrestling team is showing once
again the form which has brought
two consecutive Big Ten champ-
ionships to the Maize and Blue.
Probably the most important
factor in the comback of the team
is the return of Big Ten champ-
ions Mike Rodriguez and Max
Pearson plus heavyweight letter-
man Steve Zervas. All three be-
came eligible just this semester.
After losing three straight Big
Ten matches Coach Keen's men,
bolstered by these stars, stunned
unbeaten Iowa, 14-12, barely lost
to Michigan State, 16-15, a team
beaten only by Iowa. Thus, Mich-
igan has set itself up as a possible
Big Ten winner.
Since returning to competition
Rodriguez has defeated both his
opponents impressively, winnir-
a 12-3 decision at Iowa and pin-
ning MSU foe Cris Coniglio in 70
seconds with a paralyzing take-
Zervas and Pearson, despite
their first-semester inactivity,
have looked good in compiling 1-1
records apiece. With the recent
rise of Michigan to contending
position, there are now four teams
vying for top honors at the Con-
ference meet at Ohio State March
8 and 9.'
Minnesota, which comes to Ann
Arbor for a dual meet March 2, is
the only unbeaten Big Ten team.

By ART ROSENBAUM
Cooley maintained its perfect
record in the I-M Residence Hall
A"Basketball League with a
33-32 victory over Van Tyne.
The game saw Cooley's five
point half-time lead slowly dwin-
dle to one point but they managed
to protect their lead until the
Fred Bradford was high scorer
for Cooley with sixteen points to
Williams, Michigan, Win
Williams and Michigan still re-
main tied ni their battle for top
honors in their division. Michigan
had little trouble with Hayden,
taking a 35-10 lead at half-time
and coasting to a 47-29 victory.
The Michigan attack was spear-
headed by the sharp shooting of
Jack McKensie, 22 points, and
William Nash with 14. James Fo-
ley had 21 points for the losers.
John Geisler provided Williams'
whole scoring punch in the sec-
ond half, putting in 22 of the 26
points scored by Williams in the
half as they overpowered Scott
44-30. His game total of 26 points
was high for the night.
In a game between two unbeat-
en teams, Adams downed pre-
viously undefeated Chicago, 48-25
to take sole possession of first
place in the division. Clarence Pe-
terson was high man for the win-
ners with his seventeen points.
In the highest scoring game of
the year, the Anderson five com-
pletely overwhelmed hapless
Hinsdale 93-13. Gomberg defeated
Greene 34-21 to remain a game
behind top running Cooley.
Reeves edged Huber 39-37, led
by Keith Cowans' 18 points and
Strauss downed Winchell 66-49,
while Taylor moved past Lloyd
In the Residence Hall "B" com-
petition, Williams ran up a 21-4
lead against Kelsey and then
went on to win its fourth straight
game of the season, 33-23.
Gomberg was rudely surprised
by winless Cooley and went down
to defeat 25-19. The two teams
traded point for point till the
closing minutes when 'ooley
pulled ahead to stay there.
Michigan blasted Hayden 56-6.
A balanced attack by Huber shat-
tered Scott 40-13.
