Poor Shooting, Badger Defense
Drop Cagers to Sixth in Big Ten

r,. t

tf ene from the
by Dick Cramer

"We just didn't hit."
And the statistics bear out this
simple summary of the Michigan
basketball team's failure Monday
night at Wisconsin, made by its
coach, Bill Perigo.
"We had some 20 more shots
than they did," Perigo went on,
"just as we did when we played
them"here. Only then, we made
The Wolverines shot 82 times
from the floor, but connected on
only 24 for a 30 percent average.
Wisconsin took only 59 shots to
make good on 23.
Bad Night
"In order for us to be effective
against that sagging type of de-
fense which they used," Perigo
explained, "our guards would
have had to be hitting, and they
all had pretty bad nights."
But he was quick, too, to praise
the Badgers for their effective de-
fensive play.
As for bright spots, Perigo cited
guards Bill Wright and Tom
Raisor, who, he said, "came in
in the second half and seemed to
fire the group up, although they
couldn't seem to hit any better
than the rest of the boys."
Few Changes
The coach contemplates few
changes, mainly because there
doesn't seem to be anyone out-
shining anyone else in particular.
It's a group letdown, and Perigo
is hoping they will pick up as fast
as they have fallen.
"We're not getting the scoring
out of M.C. Burton and Jack Lew-

is that we had hoped for," he said,
"and may alternate them some-
what, but it's hard to say any-
thing definite, because no one else
has been that much better than
they have."
More in Store
In store for the cagers are a
home engagement with Illinois
here Saturday night and then a
jaunt to Purdue Monday. in
The Wolverines are now in
sixth place in the Big Ten race
with a record of four wins and
four losses.I
Indiana leads the league with
a 6-2 won-lost record. The
Hoosiers pulled one-half game'
ahead of idle Ohio State with
their 91-72 win over Minnesota.
For the time being, the race ap-
pears to be a four-team battle for
top honors among Indiana, Ohio
State, Illinois and Michigan State.

George C. Lee, '59, has succeed-
ed in making a favorable impres-
sion on his coaches with his
"heads-up" play. Teammates areI
almost unanimous in their opinion
of Lee's ability-differences arise'
in degree only-ranging from good
to great.
Picture of Confidence
From all outward appearances,
Lee looks like the picture of con-
fidence on the hardwoods. At first,
he might appear to be slightly
unco-ordinated, but once he starts
driving in and sinking a few, he
displays all the poise and grace of
a polished basketball player.
One long-time Michigan basket-
ball fan remarked during the.
Minnesota game last weekend,
"That kid keeps a cool head . .
he knows just where he is all the
time . . . collected-that's what he
In the Big Ten opener against
Indiana this year, Coach Bill Per-
igo accounted for Lee's poor per-
formance with "a case of jitters."
Lee, however, looks at it this way:
"I just couldn't hit. I didn't have
it that day and that's the only
excuse for it."
If Lee gets rattled under pres-
sure, he certainly doesn't show it;
he thinks fast and acts fast. He's
dependable at either the guard or
forward post and seems to have a
never-ending supply of energy
even in a losing battle.
Hard To Know
Off the court, Lee leads a quiet
sort of existence. Most people

A New Nemesis
EVER HEAR of a jinx team? Well, Michigan is fast acquiring a
jinx school.
When title chances of contending Wolverine teams are severely
Jolted three times in one year by representatives of the same rival
school, that school can be considered a jinx. - Minnesota has that
Remember last October when Michigan was considered the best
bet to go to the Rose Bowl and was given an outside chance to win
the Big Ten championship? To take everythingi we had to win all
the rest of our games and Ohio State, Iowa and Michigan State
would each have to lose once. We could take care of OSU and the
Hawkeyes by beating them, but we did have to hope for some team
to upset MSU.
On October 27 Michigan State had its come-uppance. Illinois
dealt the previously invincible Spartans a 20-13 defeat. The Wolver-
ines would have had a clear. path to the crown, except for one
thing. They too were being beaten, 20-7. The cause of the Wolverine
downfall, from which complete recovery was impossible: -Minnesota.
A Gopher squad that had been tied by weak Northwestern and
was later to be beaten by Iowa and tied by lowly Wisconsin had its
finest game of the season that afternoon-at the expense of Michigan.
Wounds That Don't Heal .. .
TIME HEALS all wounds, but not if the injury is recurrent.
Michigan's predicted supremacy in football was never so certain
as the pre-season title expectations of the hockey squad. True, the
defending NCAA champs had taken their early lumps, but they have
a tradition of slow starts and phenomenal finishes that has put them
into every National Collegiate Hockey Tournament since the first one
in 1948.
The Wolverines had picked up steam since Christmas. They had
won three and tied one in their last four Western Intercollegiate
Hockey League contests and were
expected to have little trouble with
the last-place club this past week-
end. Two victories could put Mich-
igan into the thick of the battle
for second place and an NCAA
playoff berth.
But Michigan's opponent-that
last place team-was Minnesota.
While its two strongest rivals for
the second spot (North Dakota
and Michigan Tech) were winning
Friday night, Michigan found that
the Gopher jinx had extended to
the ice sport. The lesson came in
the form of a 7-3 loss and despite
Saturday's 4-3 comeback victory, THE FIENDISH GOPHER
the Wolverines are now precariously near elimination from a chance
to try for the national championship.
Perhaps the most tragic blow suffered by Michigan at the hands
of its 1956-57 nemesis has been in basketball.
Wolverine cage fortunes were unusually bright early this season.
With three wins in their first four Conference games, the hoopsters
were one of four teams closely-pursuing the leader, Ohio State. This
unexpected success gave Michigan its best exam-break place in the
standings in recent years.
More Gopher-itis ...
IT WAS now time for the Cinderella team to have its siege of
Gopher-itis-and a double dose at that. Ten days ago at Minne-
apolis a 10-point loss shook the Wolverines. But they revived to
upend second-place Purdue at home two days later.
Fortunately, the other contenders had been having their set-
backs, too. Going into last Saturday's games, Michigan actually had
a chance to move into a tie for the Conference lead. ff Indiana
could topple Ohio State, if Iowa could upset Purdue, if Michigan
State could down Illinois and if Michigan could win its game at home,
the Wolverines would be deadlocked with Indiana at the top of the
Indiana, Iowa and Michigan State did their part, but Michigan's
foe was again the hot-and-cold squad from Minnesota who this time
flamed past the Wolverines in a disastrous second half to win by 20
points. By Monday night, Michigan had still not recovered and lost
again to cellar-dwelling Wisconsin.
It's painful for a Michigan partisan to recall this domination of
our athletes by teams from Minnesota that were in every case con-
sidered inferior by the experts. The Gopher have had their greatest
football, hockey and basketball successes in producing Michigan's
darkest moments of the year.
While the football season is long past, we can still hope that our
icers and cagers will come back to erase the bad effects of the deal-
ings with the Minnesota jinx.
