Iowa City, . Ia, Feb. 11. (P) Capt. Ben Stephens and his Iowa teammates faced the formidable task tonight of blocking the headlong rush of Indiana's Hoosiers toward the Big Ten basketball title. The Hoosiers started slowly, but now are moving along at full steam with four victories in five games. A victory tonight would give them a much tighter hold on first place, with Chicago, Northwestern and another game with Iowa immediately ahead of them. , One of two other conference games on tap tonight had bearing on the title race. Illinois and Purdue play at Lafayette and both needed a decision to remain in the title fight. ' Might Take Lead. ' Given proper cooperation from Iowa, Illinois could move into first place by defeating the Boilermakers since the Ulini now are tied with Minnesota and Ohio State for second place. Purdue is directly behind this trio. The Boilermakers were rated an even choice to win inasmuch as two Illinois stars, Center Lewis Dehner and Forward Bill Hapac have been ill this week. However, both were expected to see service in the game. Chicago Meets Purple. Chicago entertained Northwestern in the third loop game. Michigan was the oily other team active, the Wolves playing Michigan State at Lansing. Should tonight's results contrive to place Illinois in the lead, Doug Mills' team would be in a fine position to take the title ultimately. They have only four more games after the Purdue test Michigan, Northwestern, Chicago and another tangle witlj Purdue.
