Start at Center Shot
Instead of Doh Lund
A 12-man Michigan basketball
squad entrained for Bloomington, In-I
diana yesterday, determined to break'
a three-game Western Conference
losing streak and at the same timej
notch its second victory of the season
over Indiana.
Included in the travelling squad is
center Don Lund, but it is improbable
that he will see- any action on the
court. Coaches said that Lund would
not be in the starting, lineup and
that it is very doubtful if he will get
into the game at all.
The big center, who has been an
important cog in the Wolverine ma-
chine, suffered a twisted ankle early
in the second half of the Michigan-
Ohio game last Saturday. He has
worked out with the squad during
the week, but has been unable to re-
gain his normal form.
Lund's place in the first five will
be taken over by John Mullaney. a
starting forward in recent weeks,
who opened the season as a center*
and saw considerable action at that;
position. Keith Harder, substitute
forward who showed a lot of scor-
ing potentialities earlier in the seas-
on, will be inserted at Mullaney's
vacated post.
Revamped Line-up To Start
Filling out the revamped lineup
will be Bob Geahan, leading Wolver-
ine scorer, who will pair with HarderI
at forward, and Don Lindquist and
Walt Kell at guards. Reserves in-
clude Ted Berce and Jack Weisen-s
burger, forwards; Bruce Hilkene, cen-
ter; and Bill Gregor, Ed Norris, and
Bob Hamilton, guards.
This squad will meet an Indiana
quintet which may be considerably*

The local sports spotlight will be
on the Maize and Blue hockey team
tonight, when they face the very!
powerful Brantford sextet which has:
an impressive record of four victories
and no losses to put them in first
place in the Intermediate Ontario
Hockey Association.
Michigan's pucksters will have a
tougher time tonight in trying to'
chalk up their second win of the
season than they did in gaining their
initial victory last Saturday over;
Sarnia, 4-3. The chief reasons aref
that the Brantford team is stronger:
in reserves and is a faster breaking
combination than the Sarnia rink-
Coach Vic Heyliger said that this
encounter will be ones of the best to
be played this season. In preparation
for this contest the Wolverine sextet
has been practicing passing the puck,
power plays and whipping the puck
from our goal to the neutral zone.
In all of these features the Maize;
and Blue pucksters were weak in
their Sarnia match.

erful Purdue aggregation tonight at!,
Lafayette, Ind.
The Boilermakers' record for this
season closely parallels that of the
Maize and Blue squad. Great Lakes
registered a 46-38 triumph against
Purdue, in a closely fought match
similar to the Bluejackets' encounter'
with Michigan, while the Boilermak-
ers bounced back a week later to
hand Northwestern a 43-41 defeat l
Although the scores the two
teams compiled against Great Lakes
differ by only two points, Miehi-
gan having the edge, the Wolver-
me squad garnered a far greater
point total against Northwestern
than the boys from Lafayette. In j
addition comparative times wrung
up in the past contests give the
Maize and Blue a definite edge over
tonight's opponents.
Jack Porter, Boilermaker long-dis
tance freestyler, swam the 220-yard
distance against Great Lakes in
2:24.7, to snatch victory from the
