By Sheldon C. Fullerton
Michigan and Wisconsin, dual
holders of the Western Conference
basketball crown, are both expected
to come back with strong teams in
this year's title chase, although nei-
ther of them can be conceded the
championship for a second year in
succession without a severe struggle.

stitutes from last year's cage!
team return to Michigan, and
with several promising sopho-
mores, should aid in building
up another strong Maize and
Blue combination.. The loss ofj
two such fine guards as McCoy
and Rose is bound to be felt,
however, and unless capable
replacements are discovered the
Wolverine hopes for a cham-
pionship are dim.
Wisconsin, who finished in a tie
for first place with Michigan last
season, is likewise expecting a
strong team, but one that does not
loom as a title contender at this'
early date. Dr. Meanwell, Badgerl
coach, has said that he is coaching I
the best squad of young players that
he ever saw, but that he doesn't
hope for a Big Ten winner. The
seeming fallacy is explained by the
fact that not one of the fifteen
members of the squad is six feet in
height, and consequently the oppo-
sition will have a distinct advan-
tage on the tip.
Always a threat in Western,
Conference basketball circles,
Purdue will return with another
strong combination of cagers
this year. Led by the one and
only "Stretch" Murphy, high
scorer of the Conference last
winter, the Boilermakers are
visioning finishing far up in the
mace. Murphy was an all-Am- j

Courtwright Has Week in Which
to Put Finishing Touches
on Mediocre Squad.
With the opening game with
Kalamazoo just a week in the off-
ing Coach Courtright is drilling his
junior varsity basketeers daily in an
effort to effect a calibre of play
which will turn back the Celery
City team when the latter invades
the Yost Field House next Satur-
day evening.
Numbering hbout 20 men, mostly
sophomores, this year's jayvee ros-
ter bids fair to be devoid of out-
standing performers. Lack of ex-
perience also will probably estab-
lish the team as a slow starter.
With these handicaps in mind,
Coach Courtright is particularly
anxious to start off the season with
a win over the Kalamazoo com-
bination in the opener.
So far practice sessions have been
limited largely to the limbering up
processes so necessary in early sea-
son conditioning. Basket shooting
with the defense candidates work-
ing out modes of checking the
sharpshooting proclivities of the
men with the ball has been in or-
der to date. However, starting on

This year the scope of the com-

number of contestants are expect-
