Mitchell's men will probably derive
but a slight benefit. because of this.
Although the ,Illini have only play-
ed at a .500 percentage so far this
season, the team is one of the best
in the Conference on paper. Over-
confidence lost them their first game
with Purdue and the second which
was lost to Minnesota, resulted in a
defeat because the Gophers have

Wilson may be given an opportunity
to start his first Big Ten game.
Offensive Improved
Michigan's offensive has improved
considerably since the games of last
week. Coach Mitchell has been drill-
ing the team in basket shooting, the

Saturday. As that game was moreE

Suckers had little chance to. study
the real Michigan type of game, and
will derive no benefit from having
spent the night in Chicago instead
of Urbana.
Coaches Confident
Both the coaches seem confident.
The report has been published from
Urbana that little trouble was ex-
pected from the Maize and Blue, and
Coach Mitchell, although admitting
that it will be a hard game, believes
that we will be even in victories and
defeats after tonight.
Williams is the Wolverines' best bet
on the defensive. He is expected to
hold the clever Illini forwards down
to a few baskets with the aid of:
either Rychner or Wilson and if the
Michigan offensive machine can find
the basket themselves a fair number
of times, Mitchell's aggregation
should come out on the long end of
the score.
Michigan was defeated in the only
tennis meet in which she has en-
countered Pennsylvania. This was
held in 1914.

Coach H. P. Rnwh'y , of the All-fresh
hasketbahl sqa d, is a player with
muulh ubilmy an i erience, having
played against some of the finest
material in the country, especially in
the East.
During the seasons of 1914 and 1915
Rowley held down the running guard
position on the fast University of
Rochester five. In the two years Roch-
ester met Pennsylvania, Syracuse,
New York, Lehigh, Cornell, Brown,
and Yale. Tey more than played even
in these games, winping consistently
closely fought encounters. The Roch_
ester schedule is always one of ihe
longest and hardest of any in the East
and includes all of the big universlties,

and the better of the smaller ones.
Rowley a Medic
Rowley entered Michigan to take a
medical course and will graduate in
1920. With the establishment of bask-
etball here last season the yearling
coach became one of the most promis-
ing candidates and was rapidly work-
ing into a place on the team when he
developed a weak knee. This happen-
ed about the middle of the season and
prevented him from participating in
the remaining games. At the start of
the 1919 season he was put in charge
of the freshmen as his knee was still
too weak to stand any great strain.
Fresh Team Good
Under his coaching several very
promising players have been develop-
ed and a powerful team is expected.
Friday night's practice was the last
for this semester. No preliminary
game has been arranged as yet to
start off the Michigan-Illinois feature
Saturday. It is not likely that the All-
fresh team will be picked until next
