With the irst three non-Conference
games. already played, Coach Mather
will send his Varsity court squad
through some. stiff practice sessions
this week in preparation for the
opening game of the Big Ten race
against Northwestern Saturday night
at Evanston.,' - .
The entire squad reported for prac-
tice a week ago Monday, and the Skip-
lper made the most of the week by
holding two practices each day, de-
voting the morning drill to shooting,
passing and fundamentals, while
lengthy scrimmages were held during
the afternoon. The two workouts per
day schedule ended yesterday.
The Varsity five showed marked im-
provement in defeating the Missouri
university auintet 27-19 Saturday
night at the feld house. "Bo" Molei-
da, who starred in his first court con-
test against Pittsburgh, was again the
leading scorer against the Missouri
five, accounting for three baskets and
a free throw.
Benny Oosterbaan started as Frank
Harrigan's running mate, but was re-
placed by Ed Chambers in an attempt
to strengthen the defensive play of
the five. Molenda and Oosterbaan re-
ported to Coach Mather quite late, and
are first assimilating the fundamentals
of the Skipper's style of play.
Michigan led Missouri 14-12 at the
end of the first half, but the second
period found the Wolverines playing
an improved defensive game, with the
result that the visitors were held to
but seven points, while the Maize and
Blue five scored 13 points.
Coach Mather will devote the major
portion of his time to the defense this
week, as the Purple boasts a strong
combination that does not lack scor-
ing power. Michigan's chances of fin-
ishing close to the top in the Con-
ference race are entirely dependent
upon the defensive strngth of the Var-
sity, as the offense, although still lack-
ing in polish, shows considerable
It is still doubtful as to just who
will face Northwestern Saturday. Mo-
lenda seems to have earned a regular
berth as "Red" Cherry's running mate,
while Capt. Dick Doyle is a fixture at
center. Frank Harrigan will prob-
ably get the call for one of the for-
ward positions, with Ed Chambers and
Oosterbaan fighting it out for the
other forward job.
The Varsity five will return- to Ann
Arbor immediately after the contest at
Evanston, as the Wolverines are sche-
duled to meet Iowa's strong team
Monday night at the field house.
