HAGGERTY George, playing, his first season on the Farsity, covered himself with glory. He is fast as a streak and shoots accurately from any position. Illness kept him out of the late season games. RICE " Bill " played center when Ely was injured and for- ward when Haggerty was on the sick list. He did both in a commendable fashion. half leading the lowans 10-9. In the second half the Iowa defense tightened and through the foul shooting of Funk, the Hawkeyes forged into a one point lead which they held till the timer ' s gun put a stop to hostilities. Michigan was relegated to third position in the Conference ratings. After the season closed, Howard Birks, star guard for two seasons, was elected captain of the 1923 team.

ban and Birks and Rice were for the present, at least, conditioned. To make matters worse, Haggerty, Miller ' s running mate at forward, was taken ill and was out of the line-up for some time. Mather called into play all of his initiative to place a team upon the floor to meet Minnesota. Piper and Kipke filled the breech to perfection and Minnesota was turned back 34-18. A Minnesota rally that came late in the game was of no avail and Michigan won without being pushed. Wisconsin, an impressive record behind them, met Michigan in Ann Arbor on January 14. That the Wolverine five lost 18-15 d 068 not mar the fact that this was one of the best games ever played on the floor of Waterman gymnasium. In a game marked by excep- tional basketball by both teams it is a difficult task to pick an out- standing star. It is safe to say however that Captain Ely of Michi- gan in this contest branded himself as one of the best pivot men that ever wore a Maize and Blue uniform. The teams were evenly matched and until the last few minutes of play when Wisconsin gained a three point lead, the outcome was always in doubt. Undaunted by the loss of the Wis- consin game, Michigan met and de- feated Northwestern 27-13 at Evans- ton, on February 17. Captain Ely scored 19 of the points credited to Michigan and was a tower of strength both in offensive and defensive play. Michigan guards allowed Northwes- tern few shots at the basket save from the center of the floor. A second defeat at the hands of Wisconsin, at Madison on February 19 by a score of 16-1 1, definitely ended the faint hopes Michigan had retained for a tied Conference championship. Like the first Badger-Wolverine con- test, the outcome hung in the balance game. Closeguarding on the part of both teams and ragged shooting on the part of Michigan marked the contest. February 22 marked the second defeat of the Ohio courtmen by Michigan 39-14. Captain Ely, with a total of 24 points, was the mainstay of the Wolverine machine. Iowa, with an undefeated record, came to Ann Arbor for the closing contest of the season and defeated Michigan 19-18 before the largest crowd that ever saw a basketball game at Michigan. The olverines playing a phenominal game emerged from the first HEKDERSON " Bill " substituted at forward in set-era! Conference games. He is an exceptional shot. until near the end of the PIPER " Bill " played at forward when Mather reconstructed his team to meet the situation injury and illness had created, tie played an aggres- sKe brand of ball at all times. McWooo " Bus " being a big and rangy center mixed up the opponents plays all the time he was on the floor. Two Hundred Sixty-foe
