combination with a conglamara-

MeCaslin Looms As
Quintet's Bright Spot
Sophomore Sensation Was Collegiate Star
At Dartmouth As Naval Trainee Last Year

A boy from the great North-
west who, according to coach
Ozzie Cowles, "would rather play
basketball than eat," looms as one
of the brightest= spots in Michi-
gan's young cage season.
He's Boyd McCaslin, sensa-
tional Wolverine forward, who
racked up 19 points in the ini-
tial game of the season against
Michigan State last Saturday.
The 6' 2" sharpshooter exhib-
ited amazing accuracy, repeat-
edly racking up field goals from
well out on the floor and dis-
playing a fine brand of ball
McCaslin's cage record is one
for the books. He displayed little
prowess as a high school cager in
his home town of Bremerton,
Washington, seeing little action as
a mediocre substitute. When he
entered the Navy in November of
1943 he began to develop rapidly.
While a Naval trainee he became
attached to the game and prac-
ticed ceaselessly during every
spare moment. Possessing a great
deal of stamina and determina-
tion, the good-looking, ,sandy
haired youngster developed into a
fine basketball player.


Late in 1945 after two years
of Naval service McCaslin was
transferred to Dartmouth as a
V-12 trainee. Without ever
having any previous high school
or collegiate experience he gain-
ed fame as a member of Dart-
mouth's Ivy League champion-
ship squad averaging 10 pts.
per game. McCaslin led his
team to national recognition
and earned for himself reputa-
tion as one of the finest basket-
ballers in the East. Following
the season he was placed on the
All-Ivy League second team.
After his discharge from the
Navy, McCaslin returned home
with the determination to con-
tinue his collegiate cage ,career.
After being refused admission to
Dartmouth he decided to realize
an ambition of long standing and.
play Big Nine ball. In the cagers
own words, "II was looking for a
good all-around school and decid-
ed upon Michigan."
Coach Ozzie Cowles is full of
praise for the new addition to this
year's cage squad. "Because he
loves the game and is a hard
worker he has developed into a
fine basketball player," stated the
Wolverine mentor. "He is tireless
in practice and is always eager to
learn more."
McCaslin is a sophomore and
is majoring in Physical Educa-
tion. As a member of the Wol-
verine starting lineup he fits
well into Coach Cowles' an-
nounced policy of concentrat-
ing on freshmen and sopho-
mores this season in an effort
to build for the future. It is
his theory that it takes at least
two years to bring a good col-
lege basketball player to his
best form.
The combination of McCaslin
and Mack Suprunowitz, a fresh-
man from Schnectady, N.Y., at
the forward positions gives the
Wolverine cagers a flashly and de-
ceptive offense that should carry
it to many Big Nine victories in
the coming years.
"Mac," as his teammates call
him, possesses an unusual tech-
nique of shooting that would
make most coaches hair stand on
end. Whenattempting long shots
from near mid-court he rises on
his toes and literally pushes the
ball into the basket with his
right hand, supplying thetneces-
sary "English" with a swift stroke
of his left ending up off balance.
His shots are unusually accurate
however, as exhibited in last Sat-
urday's contest.

Three Divers
Hold Spotlight
In Swim Gala
A trio of Michigan divers, faced
with the unenviable task of break-
ing an Ohio State monopoly of
Conference and National diving
honors this season, will share the
spotlight tomorrow night in Matt
Mann's 12th annual Swim Gala
at the Sports Building pool.
At stake will be the Michigan
State AAU high board diving
crown. Defending title-holder will
be Capt. Alex Canja of the Wol-
verines. And challenging the
Maize and Blue leader for top
honors will be Gil Evans and
Tommy O'Neill, two other 1945-
46 lettermen.
Tomorrow night's competition
will mark the beginning of a long
and strenuous winter for the Wol-
veine divers. Ohio State, for in-
stance, has its National AAU and
NCAA indoor champion, Miller
Anderson, back along with a news
comer, Bruce Harlan. Harlan
topped Anderson for the National
AAU outdoor dividing crown.
IM Handball Final
To le Held Today
John Scopis will meet Sherman
Setomer in the finals of the In-
tramural handball championship
today on the downstairs courts of
the Sports Building.
In practice games between the
two finalists, Scopis held an ad-
vantage although the scores have
been extremely close. Setomer also
teaches boxing at the I-M Build-
ing during the afternoons.
