Michigan's team will lineup with

nd Cherry at the guards. Reason, a

Haggerty Leads Attack
Haggerty is one of the finest for-
ards in the Conference and Is the
eader of the Michigan attack. Last
ear lie was one -of the leading point
otters in the Big Ten. Gregory, a
iember of the football squad, will
ndoubtedly get the call at the other

layer on the team and his basket

layer in the Big Ten.
Dick Doyle who will play the other
uad in an attempt to strengthen the
therwise weak defense of the squad,
s expected to solve the problem which
as been facing Mather since the be-
;inning of the practice season.
Ruenzel May Play
If the Michigan team manages to
,et any kind of a margin on the Ag-
gies it is probable that several other
players will get into the lineup. Kuen-
el will undoubtedly see service at
one of the forward positions and
Iiutzel may. Line will probably get
nto the game at guard. Kressach
and Ladre are another pair who may
see service.
The Aggies with a 41-16 victory over
Adrian Wednesday night, seemto have
one of its best teams in a number of
years. McMillan and Captain Nuttila
at the forwards, Robinson at center,
and Richards and Marx at the guards,
make up a formidable combination,
Robinson made five field goals and five
free throws out of as many tries
against Adrian, while the captain
made three field goals and two free
throws out of two tries. Marx, play-
ing running guard, rang up four goals
in the Adrian game. Hultman may
