Referees McDonald and Rieff saw fit
to call 29 personal fouls and, for the
second time in as many tilts at the
Field House, ejected one of the com-

was Don Carlson of the visitors who
got the gate for tripping Sofiak in
the second half. Mike also left the
game on personal fouls with four
minutes to play.I
The first half saw the score tied
no less than four times. Five straight

after 10 minutes of play, but a pair
of neat baskets by Ruehle, both on

the score.,

six minutes of play which, added to
a pair of hoops by Brogan and a
basket and three fouls by Mel Comi,
pulled the Wolverines far out in

EIsher Calls Freslim an, Cagers
Most Promising In Five Years


Keen Pleased With Mat Win;
Team Drills For Spartan Meet

Encouraged by what he calls his
most promising freshman squad in
five years, Coach Ray Fisher has been
drilling 25 basketball candidates for
the past two months molding future
varsity material. "They have height,
speed and a good deal of class," the
genial coach remarked. "I'm sure
they'll produce."
In the limelight at the center post
is a handsome chap from Flint
Northern, Ralph Gilbert. Ralph garn-
ered All-State honors while attend-
ing the famous Flint institution, and
he appears to have lost none of his
old touch. He handles the ball ex-!
ceptionally well and is all arms and
shoulders when going for rebounds.
Pregulman Reports
Reporting late, but nevertheless
very much in the picture is big Merv
Pregulman of Lansing, who is slow-
ly getting his basketball legs after
spending a few months with the
freshman grid squad. Also getting
plenty of Fisher's attention are Carl
McNicholas of Marenisco and foot-
baller Fred Bryan of Melvindale.
Fisher has a host, of evenly
matched men contesting in the for-
ward posts. Harrison "Cas" Caswell,
an Ann Arbor boy with a Kiski back-
ground, is making a strong bid for top
honors in this department, "Big Cas"
f is a clever passer, 'protects the ball
nicely when dribbling, and is well
adapted physically to the rugged style
of ball that awaits him.
McNaughton Looks Good
Hal McNaughton, a fire-horse va-
riety of cager from Muncie, Indiana,
and lanky Wally Spreen, who excels
in one-handed shots, are looking very
much like varsity timber.
Bob Shemky, an Upper Peninsula
lad is the equal of any forward on
the squad, and will surely be heard
from. In the dark horse class are a

trio of Chicago boys, Bob Gilbert1
Jack Flager, and Andy March.
Bill MacConnachie of Montclair,
New Jersey, is setting a sizzling pace
for the back court guardians, with
his general all-around ability. Hid can
do everytlhing-pass, shoot, dribble,
and his defensive ability may be sum-
marized in a statement made by one
of his teammates, "Mac covers you
like a circus tent."
Supplementing Bill qre a fast-step-

making any college coach in the
