VARSIT
WOLVEINESPINTI
TO BIG NINEGAR
Albion to be Met Tomorrow
Night on Yost Field
House Court.
SQUAD SEEMS ERRATIC
Despite the reassuring fact that
Albion, scheduled to meet the Wol-
verines Thursday niight, puffered1
an overwhelming 58 to 11 defeat
at the hands of the Notre Dame"
quintet, the Tuesday afternoon
practice session of the Michigan
cagers gave no indication that
Coach Veenker has any intention
of materially changing his pro-
gram of intensive drilling prior to
the opening of the Conference
schedule.
Albion, last year's Michigan in-
tercollegiate champions, seems to
have undergone a decided slump
so far this year, especially when
there have been no reports that the
Irish have a world beating basket-,
ball squad. Any team capable of
defeating the Wolverines would not
fall under such an avalanche of
their opponents' shots as did the
Methodists last week.
In view of this, the game Thurs-
day night is not being taken very
seriously at the field house but the
anticipation of the opening of the
Conference season on the first day
after vacation is keeping the work-a
out of the Maize and Blue squad at1
a high pitch. Coach Veenker is far
from satisfied with either the con-
dition of the squador their gen'eral
abilities as a sure fire basketball'
team.
Team Limbers Up. E
Yesterday's practice session was
punctuated with a series of exer-
cises which were a combination of
setting up exercises espially suit-
ed to develop the floor work of the
members of the squad. Time was,
taken out of the regular and sim-
ple basketball drills for races across
the court with the men running
sideways.
Feinting and dribbling in for
shots were emphasized during the
early part of the practice. The
Wolverine basketeers displayed
some uncanny ability to find the
basket for counters during this
drill but seemed to lose most of
their ability in this respect in aE
semi-scrimmage later. The Senior
team composed of Captain Chap-
man, Truskowskl,Orwig, Kanitz and
Lovell playcd an erratic type of
game against the sophomores.
Show Brilliant Form
They showed flashes of fast floor-
work and passing at times and then
again they managed to throw the
ball every place but where it was
supposed to go.
The Wolverines appear well
grounded in fundamentals of the
offense taught them by Coach
Veenker and now the Michigan
mentor is drilling them to polishE
off the rough spots. Speed was
very much in evidence yesterday
although the passing was still
marred by occasional fumbles and
general ragged handling of the
ball.
On the defense the seniors had a
decided edge over the sophomore
element on the squad and the less

experienced players had consider-
able difficulty in penetrating into
scoring position. No changes werel
made in the relative positions play-
ed by the members of the senior
team on the defense.
