TEAM IMPROVES SHOOTING
Coach Veenker continued his
search for a high scoring
combination d u r i n g yester-
day's practice session, juggling the
Varsity lineup throughout a long
scrimmage with the freshman
squad in which the "A" quintet
took ample revenge for last T'ues-
day's showing to overwhelm thej
first yearling five, 41-16.1
The freshman defense, which
had held the Varsity to four points
in thW first quarter during the
previous game, was unable to stop
the combination of Truskowski andI
Orwig, forwards, Chapman, center,
Rose and Captain McCoy, guards.
which swept through the yearlings
from the start to take a 21-10 lead
at the half.
McCoy Jumps Center
Coach Fisher replaced his first=
team by another five after the in-
termission, while Barley and Mc-
Donald were substituted for Chap-
man and Truskowski in the Var-
sity lineup, McCoy :taking over the
center assignment.
The "A" team started a scoring I
spree shortly after the secondl
period opened, Captain McCoy and
Rose each breaking through to net
two short shots, McCoy also count-

freshman were forced to be con-

the basket.
Jones Scores For Frosh
With the score 31-14 against thef
yearlings, Coach Fisher again sent.
in his first team, while Chapman
replaced Rose and McCoy went
back to his guard position. Barley,
playing floor guard, dribbled down
the floor for two short shots, while
Orwig also caged a couple and Mc-
Donald counted one to bring the
final score to 41-16, Jones having
counted the freshmen's lone goal.
The floor play of the Wolverine
combinations showed the results
of the last few practice sessions ,n
more opportunities for short shots,
most of which were made good.
The original team, which played
throughout the first half, exhibit-
