Seeking its fourth victory against
as many losses in Western Confer-
ence competition and its eleventh of
the season against all comers, Coach
Bennie Oosterbaan's basketball squad
will meet a potentially powerful Wis-
consin five at 7:30 p. m. today in Yost
By beating the Badgers in this, the
first homg game in two weeks, the
Wolverines can pull their Big Ten
record up to the .500 mark before
entering the home stretch of the
1944-45 cage campaign. Only four
more contests remain for the Wolver-
ines after the Wisconsin tilt.
Prospects are that Don Lund, who
has been a pillar of strength at center
all winter, will see more action than
he did in the Indiana game last week-
end, when he played only a few min-
utes of each half. Victim of an
ankle injury, Lund has shown rapid
improvement this week and is almost
fully recovered. Oosterbaan stated,
however, that he was not yet sure
whether his veteran ace would start.
Same Sub Combination
If Lund is not in the opening line-
up, Oosterbaan will put the same
combination on the floor which per-
formed ably in the victory over Indi-
ana. Forward John Mullaney shifts
to center, and Keith Harder goes in
at forward when the revised lineup
is in action.
Otherwise, the Wolverine quintet
will have Bob Geahan, holder of sec-
ond place in the Conference indivi-
dual scoring sweepstakes, at the other
forward, teaming with either Mul-
laney or Harder. Walt Kell and Don
Lindquist will again be in their fa-
miliar guard roles.
Patterson Heads Lineup
Against this lineup Wisconsin will
stake a somewhat taller outfit headed
by veteran forward Ray Patterson.
Teaming with the high-scoring Pat-
terson at the other forward is Des
Smith. Bill Bachman, a freshman,
holds down the center berth, and Bill
Johnson and Bob Sullivan, another
freshman, are at guards. The Bad-
gers, coached by Harold "Bud" Fos-
ter, have won two and lost the same
number in the Conference this year.
Large Crowd at Iowa
Following the Wisconsin fracas, the
Wolverines will journey to Iowa City
where a crowd of 12,000 is in pros-
pect for the Iowa-Michigan game.
The Wolverines lost to the Hawks,
29-27, in a hotly-contested encounter
here two weeks ago.
The Hawkeyes' fortunes were giv-
en a boost this week with the return
to the squad of Dave Danner, who
tied for second place in Big Ten scor-
ing last year with 193 points. Dan-
ner, who has a medical discharge
from the Army, has been with the
squad only a few days and may not
be in top shape. At the same time,
Iowa announced that Stan Straat-
sma, promising freshman forward,
has been lost to the Army.
