STRO-NG DEFENSE IN -OPENING GAME'

Veterans Mather Used in
ELY OPENS THE YEAR AT
CENTER AND PLAYS WELL
Michigan's opening basketball game
with Western State Normal Friday
night gave Wolverine supporters a
chance to size up the team in actual
competition. The Michigan five has
been badly handicapped this year by
the loss of Karpusa Williams and
Dunne. These three men were the
mainstays of the 1921 team whose sen-
sational comeback after three games
had been lost netted it a triple tie
with Wisconsin and Purdue for first
place. 'This year Captain Rea, Miller
and Whitlock are the only veterans,
while Rea alone has played more than
one season on the Varsity.
Strong on Defense
Despite the loss of many seasoned
players Coach Mather sent a team up-
on the floor Firday which gave a
good account of itself in every par-
tieular of the game. While the Wol-
verines did not give evidence of be-
ing a high scoring combination their
guarding and defensive work was
praiseworthy. It has always been one
of Coach Mather's fundamentals to
develop a team thoroughly drilled in
the guarding art, and as a result the
Michigan court squads have usually
held their opponents to comparatively
low scores. The team this year, from
all appearances, is no exception to the
rule, for the Normal five was held to
a meagre pair of field baskets.
Michigan opened the game carefully
and seemed almost over cautious in its
play, but there was never any doubt
as to the outcome after Miller scored
the first point on a free throw and the
Wolverines' passing game got under

and if his play against Western Nor-
mal can be taken as an. Indication of
his play for the season Michigan will
be assured of a strong tip' off man.
Michigan opened the second half
with more of the dasli and speed that
characterized the Wolverine play last
year. With an eight point advantage,

speedy brand of basketball. This was

Birks Plays Back Guard
Birks at standing guard picked the
ball from the bank a number of times
and several times kept the ball from
his opponents in a manner similar to
that employed by Jack Williams last
year. Rex Reason, playing with Mil-
ler at a forward position, was instru-
mental in breaking up the Normal
five's passing game.
