Four juniors, each with a year
of varsity competition under their
belt, will probably man the infield
positions for the Michigan base-
ball team when it opens its spring
season this Saturday against Duke
University.
Three of the infielders, Bill Ro-
man, Dave Brown and Bob Kuch-
er, held down regular positions
last year while only sophomores,
and Gene Struczewski filled in
enough in an utility role to earn
his letter.
At first base will be Roman, a
tall, lanky power - hitter, who
posted a .311 average in Big Ten
competition last season and a .327
mark overall. Retired Coach Ray
Fisher, who headed the squad last
spring before retiring, -described
the left-handed slugger as having

By The Associated Press
MONTREAL - The powerful
Montreal Canadiens started in
quest of an unprecedented fourth1
straight Stanley Cup Champion-
-ship- by downing the Chicago
Black Hawks, .4-2, last night in
the first game of their semi-final
series.
BOSTON -- Boston drew in-
spiration from the youthful acro-
batics of round-faced 32-year-old
goalie Harry Lumley to defeat
Toronto 5-1 with a three-goal
middle period outburst last night
in the opener of their Stanley
Cup hockey playoff series.
The Bruins took a 1-0 lead in
the best of seven semi-final com-
petition while a capacity Boston
Garden gathering of 13,909
howled with delight.

ST. LOUIS -- Bob Pettit hit 39
points last night in his first big
scoring game of the Western Di-
vision Playoffs and paced the St.
Louis Hawks to an easy 127-97
victory over the Minneapolis
Lakers, giving the Hawks a 2-1
lead in the best of seven series.

a great deal of natural talent
and added that he might develop
into one of the Wolverine's all
time stars.
Second Best
At the hot corner is another
power hitter, Dave Brown, whose
.314 average against Conference
pitching was second only to catch-
er Jim Dickey among the Wol-
verine regulars. His overall season
mark of .376 was the highest on
the squad.
Brown, who has doubled as a
reserve quarterback on the foot-'
ball team during the fall months,
had some trouble with his fielding
early last spring, but improved
steadily as the season progressed.
At the keystone sack will be Bob
Kucher whose .978 fielding average
was tops in the Big Ten for second
basemen. Kucher had a .274 sea-
son average last year, but ran into
a late season slump that dropped
his Big Ten ;mark to .189.
New Shortstop
Struezewski, who saw most of
his, action last year pinch-hitting
and filling in for an injured Brown
at third, will take over the short-
stop position vacated by last year's
Captain Ernie Myers, who has
since graduated.}
Giving Michigan Coach Don
Lund some depth at the infield
slots will be newcomers George
1 Fead at third, Terry Ziegler at
second and Barry Marshall who
plays just about anywhere in the
infield as well as in the outfield.

With the professional basket-
ball playoffs well under way, a fa-
miliar pattern is beginning to
take shape - Boston's Celtics in
the Eastern Division, and St.
Louis' Hawks in the West are
again moving towards their sec-
tional titles.
These teams have met the past
two years in the., championship
series between the winners of the
division playoffs, .and they are
heavy favorites to be the contend-
ers again this year. St. Louis is
the defending champ, but, Boston
took the crown in 1957.

Under National Basketball As-
sociaiton rules, the first three fin-
ishers in each division qualify for
the playoffs. The second and third
place teams battle in a best-of-
three series for the right to meet
the first place club. Then follow
duels between the winners of the
first series and the section leaders.
They meet in a best-of-seven
series.
Best of Seven
These best-of-seven matches
are taking place now. Boston is
battling the Syracuse Nationals,
who qualified by knocking off the
New York Knicks in two straight
tilts. St. Louis faces the Minne-
apolis Lakers who won over the
Detroit Pistons in three games.
Boston now leads Syracuse two
games to one while the World
Champion Hawks are deadlocked
at one game apiece with Minne-
apolis.
If the results of the playoffs
run true to regular season form,
'the Celtics and Hawks will again
tangle in basketball's World
Series to determine who shall
reign as king.
Boston rolled to first place in
this year's regular schedule with
ridiculous ease, smashing the
record for number of wins in a
season. The Celtics also had many
individuals who broke records.
Numerous experts have comment-
ed that this squad is the finest
basketball team that has ever
been assembled.
Cousy Leads
The Bean Town aggregation is
led by veteran playmaker-captain
Bob Cousy, known as Mr. Basket-

ball and one of the true greats in
cage history. But Cousy is hardly
alone; in fact the Boston team is
one of the most superbly balanced
squads of all time.
At the other guard is veteran
Bill - Sharman, who along with
maintaining a near-20 point scor-
ing average, broke his own free
throw percentage record this year
and has a deadly one-hand jump
shot.
The center is fabulous Bill
Russell, another record-breaker,
who patrols the middle area of
the court with his 6'11" frame
and seven-foot reach controlling
the boards as if the ball was des-
tined to fall into his huge hands.
He broke his own record this sea-
son in the rebounding depart-,
ment and scores in double figures'
consistently.
Forwards Strong
Boston is also very strong at
the forwards. Starters Tommy
Heinsohn and Frank Ramsey are
two of the finest in the league.
Heinsohn averages in the 20's and
Ramsey is a steady player. The
bench is well stocked with men
who would play regularly on any
team other than this squad of
super-stars, men such as Jim Los-
cutoff, K. C. Jones, Sam Jones,
and Gene Conley.
If any team is to beat Boston, it
will have to be the St. Louis
group. The Hawks, paralleling
Boston's success story, also sped
to the top of their division and
completely dominated it through-
out the season.
The Hawks are led by the most
potent scorer in the NBA's his-
tory, Bob Pettit, who was recent-
ly voted Most Valuable Player in
the league, Pettit broke five scor-
ing records this season, including
most points in a season and high-
est scoring average per game.

are offered to undergraduates
in good standing. Morning,
afternoon and evening classes.
Dates vary for early summer,
mid-sumier and post sessions in
the various divisions.

Right alongside Pettit is the
second half of the most prolific
scoring duo in pro cage annals,
Cliff Hagan. Hagan has averaged
over 24 points per game, and with
Pettit's 29.2, the two scored nearly
half of St. Louis' points during
the regular season. Hagan has
also proved himself to be a clutch
player under playoff conditions,
outshining even Pettit .in last
year's victory over the Celtics.
But the Hawks' playmaker
guard Slater Martin, a very valu-
able element to the team's suc-
cess, is injured as a result of .a
collision with the Lakers' Ed
Fleming. It is believed that Mar-
tin will be out for the rest of the
year due to the leg injury and the
loss will be keenly felt. This was
evidenced in the Hawks' defeat
at the hands of Minneapolis last
Sunday.
With Martin out of action, the
Celtics look as if they will recap-
ture the title they lost last year.
