Wolverines' Marks Up For Approval

Coach Oosterbaan Will Stress
Speed In Michigan Cage Attack


Bennie Oosterbaan, Michigan's new
head basketball coach, will this sea-{
son introduce to Wolverine fans an.
offensive weapon little used during
the "Townsend era"-the fast break.
For the past three years "Jake" was'
the key man in the Varsity offensive,
the team's scoring leader and the
greatest ballhandler ever to perform
for the Maize and Blue. As a pivot
man, he knew no equal when it came
to making those seemingly impossible
passes to his mates for set-up shots.
Small But Fast
But this year it's a different story.
Townsend has graduated and the
first string lineup promises to include
three men who are classed in bas-
ketball circles as small. Forwards
Charley Pink and Eddie Thomas, and
both soph candidates for the one
guard spot, Mike Sofiak and Herb
Brogan, all are well under the six
foot mark.
Oosterbaan's trump card however
is the fact that all these boys are fast
and can qualify as real sharp-shoot-
ers. Last years center, Jim Rae;

The marks of three present Michi-
gan athletes and one'former Wolver-
ine captain will be up for approval as
American records when the A.A.U.
holds its annual convention at Wash-
ington Dec. 2, 3 and 4. All records
approved by the body will automa-
tically become American records.

the body. He swam 100 yards in

in the 150 yard medley on April 2 at
Detroit will also be up for considera-
Bill Watson, Wolverine track cap-
tain, and Elmer Gedepn, varsity
hurdler, are also slated for recogni-

tion. Watson put the s-pound shot
70 ft. % in. at Randalls Island, N.Y.j
on July 17. Gedeon's mark over six
3 ft. 6 in. hurdles on a dirt track was
made in the Conference Indoor meet
at Chicago March 12 when he won
the 70 yard high hurdles in :08.6.
Watson's 8-pound shot put mark
and Hayni's medley record, if ap-
proved, will be listed as "noteworthy
performances" as no record for these
events is listed.

Lowrey's Puck
Squad Displays
A 4V
Form In Drill
Coach Eddie Lowrey's 1938 edition
of Michigan's hockey team went
through a two-hour ' practice at the
Coliseum last night in a manner
which brightened the Wolverine
hockey hopes for the coming year.
With the opening game against
McMaster University only two weeks
off, Lowrey's charges have finally be-
gun to round into shape. Last night
attention was given putting the soph-
omores through their paces and drill-
ing them on fundamentals,
Meanwhile, the probable first line

back for his second year of compe-
tition, has benefited by his workouts
on the track team and is also show-
ing the speed which will keynote the
Michigan attack. Capt. Leo Beebe,
veteran guard, has shown too that he
can stand the pace.
Team To Break Fast
"Take it down fast," shouts Bennic
in practice scrimmages. "Go right
in and shoot." And his team does.
As soon as they get the ball they
break fast; that is, they either pass
to a teammate well down the floor in
enemy territory, or relay the ball
down court by a series of fast short
passes, or else one man breaks for
the basket upon seeing an opening
and dribbles clear in to take his shot.
"I like the fast game," explains
Oosterbaan who played that style of
basketball when he was an All-Con-
ference forward and leading scorer
for Michigan in 1926.
"Bven if we should not use it to a
great extent during the season, it is a
great help in getting a team in shape
and furthermore it is much easier to
slow down your offense than it is to
speed it up."
Speed Is Keynote
The men on the team who have
been practicing since the regular
drills began will testify that they are
already in better condition than they
were all last season when they had
to run less with the set play type of
It's new to them. None of the
regulars played the fast break in high

halves, and during each 20 minutes
it's the fast break with scarcely a let-
Speed and more speed is the slo-
gan, which makes one fact certain.
