Coach Math-er willl leave Ann Arbor
Friday night with nine Wolverines to
meet the Northwestern five Saturday
night in Patten gym at Evanston.
Coach Mather has not definitely de-
cided who will compose the squad of
nine, but will make a final selection
after the practice Thursday night.
The first team at present is really
composed of six players, Chambers,
and Oosterbaan competing closely for
one of the forward positions. In the
Missouri game Oosterbaan started,
but was replaced in the second half
by Chambers. It is likely that each
will play part of the game against
Northwestern. Molenda and Cherry
will play the guards, and the right
forward will be assigned to Harrigan'
Captain Doyle is slated to play at the
tip off position.-
Schroeder, a sophomore guard, has
shown improvement and is likely to
make the trip. The former Battle
Creek star is a rangy player and
works well at center on the tip off.
Petrie, another sophomre guard will
be the other substitute guard to make
the trip to the Windy City. The
choice of the ninth member of t ,
squad is problenmatical. '
In the last two practices scheduled
for the Varsity Coach Mather has out-
lined a program to polish off the work
stressed during the past week. Im-
mediately after the Northwestern
game, the Wolverines will return to
Ann Arbor to meet the University of
Iowa team in the field house Monday
