Michigan's Varsity five, exhilar-
ated by the attaining of undisputed
first place in the Conference
standings, displayed its best form
of the season on both offense and
defense during yesterday's practice
Coach Veenker, realizing that the
Wolverines gained the top rung of
the ladder by remaining idle while
Purdue was falling before Wiscon-
sin, 31-26, Monday night, and also
realizing that the Varsity, with
four gmes won, has six tough ones
to go, two more than remain on
the Boilermaker schedule, and
must win most of these games,
payed special attention to develop-
ing a fast breaking attack.
The Michigan defense, which h'
allowed the Wolverines' opponen
a meager average of 17 points pt r
tilt in the las seven contests, ap-
pears capable of facing the task
of holding the Northwestern, Wis-
consin, Ohio, and Minnesota quin-
tets in the contests scheduled fol-
lowing the between semester recess.
Most of these teams, however,
boast strong defenses likewise, the
Cardinal aggregation proved itself
exceptionally strong in this respect
in smothering Vie famed offense
of the highest scoring team in the
Big Ten with a scant allowance of
26 points, and holding "Stretch"
Murphy to a lone basket and field
Coach Veenker emphasized the
use of the hook pass, with Danny
Rose doing most of the tossing aft-
er taking the ball down the floor, in
an offensive drill with the regular
five working against a second team
composed of Balsamo and Hanah,
forwards forwards, Kanitz, center,
and Barley and Cushing, guards.
The Varsity showed the best form
it has this year in the use of an
accurate short passing attack in
working the ball underneath the
basket. With Rose or McCoy start-
ing the offensive with hook passes,
the "A" quintet displayed a dazzl-
ing series of fast, short passes of
every description, with Truskowski,
Orwig, and Chapman taking the
ball under the basket for dog shots
after fast breaks.
The second team seemed unable
to break up the fast working of-
fense, during which the Varsity
seldom relinquished control of the
ball. Orwig and Chapman showed
particularly well in caging jump
shots on follow ups, while Captain
McCoy and Rose aided by perfect
blocking, each sank two tosses from
beyond the free throw circles.
The workout on offense was fol-
lowed by a scrinunage against the
"B" team, with Captain McCoy,
Rose, Truskowski, Orwig, and Chap-!
man opposing Balsamo, Cushing,
Downing, Dougal, and Lovell. The
"A's" broke through the Reserves'
defense frequently, with Truskow-
ski and Orwig doing most of the
scoring on push in and dog shots
following breaks from the corners
of the court.
Coach Veenker and Oosterbaan,
on the prowl for reserve material,
which the Varsity lacks at present,
put Kanitz through a long drill on
the intricacies of defense with an
eye to developing a capable afllI
around substitute. Kanitz started
the season as regular forward, but
was kept out for two weeks by a
sprained ankle,, and since his re-
turn has played at every position.-

Passing Attack1
Coach Courtwright sent his
Junior Varsity cagers through a
long workout yesterday, emphasiz-
ing the preparation of a defense
igainst the fast breaking type of
game the Detroit City college five{
is expected to employ when the
Titans play host to the Reserves'
Thursday night.
The Detroit quintet, although far
below the standard of the "B"
squad on'the rating of games play-
ed this year, owes its lack of suc-
cess to a poor eye for the basket,
according to Coach Courtwright,
who scouted the Titans in their
contest with Ypsilanti Normal.
Reserves Have Best Record

clean sweep of its home and home
