Last night's practice was the only
hard drilling that the Varsity will
be put through this week. Wednes-
day night's game was supposed to
furnish a stiff workout for the squad
but the victory was so easy that the
Michigan men did not put forth their
best in the last half of the game.
So Coach Mitchell, after conducting
a snappy signal drill and running the
squad through their whole repertoire
of plays, put the quintet into a 10-

ence title because each one of their
players is a veteran of last year.
Illinois is an outstanding exponent
of the long-shot style of playing.
This will probably bother Michigan
for a little at the start as she has
not yet played a team which counts
so strongly on this method of scor-
ing as does Illinois, but it, is hoped
that Wolverines will not take long
to accustom themselves to it. How-,
ever, with the advantage which aris-
es from playing on the home floor
and the general improvement that
has taken place, the team feels con-

Coach Rowley blames the defeat of
he All-Fresh Wednesday to lack of
tearn work. 'This is not the fault of
he men themselves, but of .the sys-
em under which they have been
orced to practice.
Until lately four teams have been
playing nearly every day. The men
composing these. teams have shifted
about in a way to bring out the best
ndividual work but not the best team
work. That there is plenty of power
n the first year team 'is proved by
he last few minutes of the prelim-
nary Wednesday night. They began
o play together in the middle of the
ast half and almost immediately
cored eight points, nearly enough to
win. The game would never have
been in doubt had they played this
way all the time.
To develop this team-play the
coach will pick his best men and
play them together each day. With
the basket shooters that are now out
for practice Rowley should not have
muchrtrouble in turning out a win-
ner. Westbrook, Henderson, and
Raye, all forwards, are excellent
shots, while Merkey, a fast, clever
guard, can shoot as well as play the
floor. The team has not yet been
selected but will be soon announced.
The Purdue five gave the Iowa
team a good beating last Saturday
when she met them on her home
floor. The final score was 32 to 19.
Scoring honors on the Boilermaker's
squad were divided between Markley
and Tilson.

Urbana, Jan. 30.---Coach Jones is
sending his basketeers through the c
final drills and skirmishes pi'ior top
the departure for Ann Arbor, wheret
the Orange and Blue is scheduled toA
face Michigan on Sturday night. n
Illinois goes into the Wolverinen
state with its quintet of veterans wellR
tempered in the season's latest sport
by an equal number of victories and
defeats in the Big Ten race. To date,
the delegation has not justified the
opinion of the critics, the majority of
whom granted it first place among
possible championship candidates.t
However, the team undoubtedly holdsv
superiority in wealth of material and
experience and a strong comeback is
very much in order according to thes
Champaign supporters.a
Game Center of Attention
Play with Michigan on Saturday
night will be the center of attention
as the Illini exhibition at that time
will figure heavily in the results that
may be normally expected from the
Orange and Blue during the remaind-
er of this year's basket season,
Michigan on the other hand still
smarts under the recent marginal de-
feats inflicted by Chicago and North-
western. The element of revenge and
comeback also enters strongly into
the Wolverine side of the argument
and Coach Mitchell's court men, work-
ing on home territory, are known as
formidable opponents to any outfit.
The coming clash therefore assumes
all the ear marks of a drawing card,

stop In Chicago last week enroute to
Madison to give his following an op-
portunity to see the game with the
Maroona and to dope out Michigan's
style and system.
At present the Illini hold a record
of tw wina and two' defeats in the
current conference tourney. The first
game was lost to Purdue through
overconfidence but was balanced by
the later triumph over Ohio State. The
mach with Wisconsin resulted in an-
other eonquest and rather justified
further hopes which were, however,
