PRACTICE DAILY AT FIELD HOUSE:
Cagers Prepare for Opening of Season
By TOM WITECKI
Not far from where head foot-
ball coach Bennie Oosterbaan and
Co. are preparing for this week's
game, another Michigan varsity
team is also practicing for a game,
one which will not be played for
another month and a half.
This squad is the 1958-59 Mich-
igan basketball team, which is.
making ready for another season
which will start with a home
game against Pittsburgh on De-
An important task in these ear-
ly practices is to see how last
year's freshmen, now sophomores,
will help the varsity squad.
While the new crop of sopho-
mores does not contain the "big"
man Coach Perigo has been look-
complete with VALANCE
ing for during the past several
years to fill the all-important
pivot position, it does contain at
least one sophomore who will be
good enough to make the starting
That sophomore is 6'3" John
Tidwell, whose sharp shooting and
overall play has labeled him first-
string material. Tidwell hails from
Herrin, Ill., where he earned all-
state honors in leading his high
school team to the state cham-
Commenting on Tidwell, Perigo
said, "He has developed very well
and with his great shot-making
ability he should break into the
Perigo's main problem as in past
years is who will play center. Last
year Pete Tillotson transferred
from forward to fill the gap and
did a good Job, ending up as the
team's top scorer. With Tillotson's
graduation the hunt has begun
A possibility is that sophomore
John Parker will play the posi-
tion some of the time. Although
only 6'3" tall, Parker has looked
impressive in, the offensive pivot
position. If Parker can handle the
job on offense, Michigan's out-
standing forward and top defen-
sive player, 6'4" M. C. Burton can
be used to handle the defensive
Perigo is still hoping for the
day that Michigan will get a big
man of the Archie Dees or Joe
Ruklick type to take over the
center position, but that day will
not be this winter.
Sophomores who have after-
noons free from 4 p.m. once or
twice a week, and who would
like to be hockey managers,
are asked to call Chuck Green-
ing at NO 3-7029.
