Cagers Play Panthers in Home Oi
By DAVE KIMBALL
A winless but improving Michi-
gan' basketball team will host a
strong Pittsburgh quintet tonight
in the Wolverines' home opener
at Yost Field House, starting at 8
The Wolverines, losers in their
first two outings against Vander-
bilt and Tennessee last weekend,
will be trying to retain, if not
improve, the form they showed
in the second half against Ten-
nessee Saturday night. During the
last 15 minutes of play they bat-
tled the Volunteers on even terms
despite the fact that they had
. " i
earlier lost the services of 6'4"
sophomore Don Petroff, who was
ejected for fighting.
"Petroff should not have been
kicked out of the game," coach
Dave Strack remarked after the
game. "He fouled (Skimp) Camp-
bell on the rebound, but Campbell
went out of his way just to take
a swing at him." The referees,
after removing only Campbell at
first, reversed their decision and
ejected both players.
Strack was disappointed in his
team's showing against Vander-
bilt and during the first half
against Tennessee, but was much
encouraged by Michigan's per-
formance in the second half
against the Volunteers. "We didn't
play 100 per cent up to our ca-
pacity most of the time," the
young mentor said, "but during

the second half we looked like a
real, ball club should. If we were
to meet them again it could be
a completely different story."'
The fact that Petroff -wa ejected
may or may not have had an effect
on the outcome of the Tennessee
game. "Petroff is 6'4" and Camp-
bell is 5'10" and was not doing
much. We were definitely hurt
more by the action than they
were," Strack added.
Tonight's game will be the ninth
between the Wolverines and the
Panthers -in a home and home
series dating back to 1952. Michi-
gan leads in the current series
5-3, and in all-time competition
between the two schools the Wol-
verines hold a 9-5 edge.
The first game between the two
teams was played in 1925 when
Michigan edged the Panthers, 34-
25, in an era when few games
were played (the Wolverines
played only 17 that year) and low
scoring games were the rule rather
than the exception. Pitt won last
year's tussle, 71-56.
In Pitt the Wolverines will be
facing a good-shooting club which
likes to run a lot, according to
Tom Jorgenson, one of Stracks
assistants who watched the Pan-
thers'- edge Purdue's Boilermakers
81-80. In its only other game Pitt
was beaten by ,navy, 63-59.
Strack foresees no change in,
style or attack for tonigi
