Michigan's last victory of the
evening came in the 400-yd. med-

was high man for the afternoon
with 23 points. Indiana's Archie
Dees, top Conference scorer, was
held to 14 points, well below his
24-point average but was "playing
a team game," he said afterward.
Wilkinson, last minute hero for
the Hoosiers, was high for his
team with 17 points.
Thesellout crowd of 12,350rin
Jenison Field House and the re-
gional television audience saw a
rough game with plenty of fouls,
elbowing, wrestling and head on
collisions. The Spartans, appar-
ently bothered by championship
jitters played a stumbling game in
the first half.
Northwestern trounced Illinois,
88-72, to gain its best Big Ten
record in 12 years. Joe Ruklick led
the Wildcats, scoring 40 points to
break the school record.
