Skating with all the grace of a veteran to the melody of R9- manian music arranged by his trainer, the 18-year-old Button gave a magnificent performance in the free skating events to win the second championship of the day for America. Before his performance, Mrs. . Fraser had become the lirst Amcr-jduction is expected to balance the ted an average of 2.7 points per game more than its rivals. Thus the Hoosiers, lied for sev cnth place, are the only second division team with a statistics edge. And the advantage can b traced to two overwhelming Indi ana victories on the Hoosicr floor, a 71 to 54 win over Ohio State and a 65 to 43 trimming handed Minnesota. In their other conference games, the Hoosiers lost to Wisconsin at Bloommgton by four points and on the road dropped contests to Purdue by nine, Iowa by nine and Illinois by one counter. The other three second division teams, Minnesota, Ohio Stale and Northwestern have scored fewer points than their rivals, and as should be expected, all five first division clubs have the statistical edge. Ohio State Powerful In point-making Ohio State, deadlocked with Indiana, still ranks as the most powerful team with 58.5 average. But the Bucks are still the poorest defensive quintet. Ohio's opponents have averaged 62.7 points per game. Indiana ranks second in offense while Io\va is third and league-lead- Vv'isconsin seventh- On defense, fourth place Michigan is the best, holding its opponents to 47.6 counters per game, Wisconsin is second and Illinois third. In the individual scoring race j Murray Wier's 20 points against Northwestern advanced him into first place in the total points column with 138 for six games. However Jim Mclntyre of Minnesota, last week's leader, is still ahead of the Iowa star in average points per game. Mclntyre has connected i c -- 25.6 points in each of the five' Harrisburg is in fourth place with three wins and five losses, behind third place Marion which has won four and lost four.
