The nassing of the Wolverine was a revelation, n was vy lar me greatest -exhibition ever witnessed on a local floor. Time after time the Michiganders passed the ball down the field, and had many opportuni ties to shoot' goals, with many of them going wide or rolling off the basket. The Memphians staged a game up hill fight, and not until after the last second of the game had ticked off did they quit trying. They were in there, trying to win that game, and it appeared as if the tide would turn in their favor in the last min ute of play. They had several chances at long shots at the basket, but all went wide. Although the "Y" five was defeated, they were not disgraced. They were entitled to the victory, and would have had It but for the Inability, to toss fouls. This proved fatal to their chances, for had they tossed even half of the foul shots, they would have emerged one point winner. " The game got away fast, and within- the opening minute Rea, Michigan forward, caged a basket after some good passing. McCabe then fouled Capt. Karpus, who failed in his at tempt to toss a foul goal. Walden went In for Magee at left forward for Memphis. Karpus was fouled again, and shot a goal. The first score of the Memphians was a long shot from mldfield by McCabe, who placed the bail square ly between the rings by a wonderful heave. Miller went in at guard for Capt. Karpus. Perry was fouled and Sherman missed the attempt at foul goal. Whitlock shot a goal for Michigan as the direct result of some fine dribbling and passing. Weiss missed a foul. Sherman tossed a foul. Then a double foul was called, but both Sherman and Weiss missed. Whitlock scored again for Michi gan on a pretty shbt from the left side of the court. Sherman again missed a foul. McCabe shot a great goal from a difficult &7sle. Just as the first half ended Blackburn cashed In with a goal from almost mldfield, tying the score 7-7. SECOND HALF FAST. The two teams got away strong in the second half, and within 10 sec onds after the whistle Weiss shot a' basket Miller duplicated the stunt, which was followed by a goal by Williams. It appeared as If the Wolverines were going to stage a runaway. But tne Mempmans tight ened up. McCabe fouled Williams and Whitlock tossed a foul goal. The first score of the Memphians in the second half occurred when Walden made a brlljiant shot from deep mldfield. Capt Perry quickly followed suit and the crowd wag on its feet. Two fouls were then called on Michigan players, but McCabe and Sherman missed the basket Just before the final whistle, another foul was called on the Wolverines, but Blackburn, after tossing the hall per fectly, stepped out 6f position before the oval had cleared the basket, and tifi goal didn't count The game iV ended 14-11 for the visitors. The entire Michigan team stared. For Memphis Willis McCabe's great defensive play was the outstanding feature. This classy guard was rid ing the Wolverines all the way and it was due to his Individual efforts that the score was not larger. ' All of the Memphis quintet played good ball, and but for their inability to locate the basket after fouls had been railed, they would have tamed the Wolverines. They staged a DriiiiHni ugnc, -ana are entitled to a world of credit for their great show ing. The lineup: Michigan. . Memphis. Position.
