yvees Open Cage Season
rainst Ypsi Five Saturday

Maize and Blue Quintet Out To Derail
High-Flying Badgers in Crucial Tilt

Michigan's jayvee basketball
squad will open an eight-game
schedule at 2 p.m. Saturday when
it faces Michigan Normal, at Yost
Field House.
In the other seven contests, the
cagers will face Ypsi here in a sec-
ond game and engage in home-
and-home series with Ohio State,
Michigan State, and Toledo,
Tai Squad
Coach Bert Katzenmeyer, the
new jayvee cage mentor, will be
able to place a tall team on the
floor since the overall average of
the squad is well over six feet.
The squad, which has been
trimmed from a total of 48 try-
outs, includes Dick Kempthorn,
John Anderson, and Bud Royce,
centers; Ed Klump, Carl Conrad,
Bob Hollway, Dick Rifenburg, and
Gene Estes at the forward posi-
tions.
At the guards are Bob Erben, Al
Topping, Tom Peterson, Bump
Elliott, Jerry Wingent, and Jim
Manilla. Rifenburg and Hollway
can also fill the pivot position.
Accent on Defense
Coach Katzenmeyer has been

stressing defense in the several
workouts that have been held this
season, but the squad has put in a
lot of offensive practice on the
two-man pivot offense and the
pick-up and screen-off plays.
In the two-man pivot, Hollway
and Royce have been alternating
with Anderson, who has been
bothered by a bad leg. Despite the
injury, Anderson has been highly
praised by Katzenmeyer for his
work.
Lauds Shooting
The shooting of Kempthorn,
Topping, and Erben as well as the
ball handling of Anderson and
Topping have been very promising,
according to Coach Katzenmeyer.
He also praised the improvement
shown by Rifenburg and Hollway
under the basket, and the work of
Royce.
The cage activities of Kemp-
thorn, Anderson, Erben, Hollway,
Rifenburg, Peterson, ahd Elliott
did not begin until after they had
concluded their recent Rose Bowl
activities.

'M' Title Hopes
Hinge 011 Victory
Coach Ozzie Cowles' Wolverine
cage quintet will be hard pressed
to stop the rampaging Badgers of
Wisconsin who are threatening to
walk away wfth the Western Con-
ference championship before half
of the teams have a chance to
eliminate early season bugs.
Aided by a schedule which pit-
ted them against the three teams
that were rated at the start of
this season as most likely to de-
throne the title-defending Badg-
ers, the lads from Madison cur-
rently top the Big Nine standings
with four victories and no defeats.
Smooth Victory Path
Another factor which has given
emphasis to the Wisconsin title
hopes is the team's smooth show-

ing inlits three tough games which
saw Indiana, Illinois and Minne-
sota bow by respective scores of1
58 to 54, 52 to 47 and 59 to 50. The
Badgers annexed their fourth
conference triumph by disposing
of an improved Iowa squad. '
Because of this year's schedule
no other team in the Conference is'
within striking distance of the
Wisconsin quintet. Illinois, Minne-
sota and Michigan all have lost at
least one game and will not start{
on their tougher Conference
games for at least another week.>
Michigan, which won its open-
er from Minnesota and lost its
second start to Northwestern, isI
the next of the "Big Four" to
make the attempt to halt the men
from Madison. Ozzie Cowles willI
have to develop a stronger scoring'
punch if the Wolverines are to'
stop Wisconsin's starting five cur-

READY - Coach Newt Loken
will send his varsity gymnastics
team against Minnesota in the
year's Big Nine opener at the
Intramural Building at 8 p.m.
Saturday instead of in the af-
ternoon, as previously an-
nounced in The Daily. The
sport was revived here last
spring after a 14-year lapse.

rently paced by Bob Cook, Ed
Mills and Dick Falls.
Easy Road Ahead?
If the Badgers can get by Mich-
igan Saturday they will be on the
easy part of their scheaule with-
out a defeat and while the other
contenders are fighting it out
among themselves, the Wisconsin
squad should be able to pull away
from the runners-up at the ex-
pense of the weaker Conference
teams.
Coach Bud Foster, while com-
plaining that this year's outfit is
not as good as last year's title win-
ning team admits that the 1947-48
version of the Badgers are fast
rounding into the smooth style of
play that sparked last year's
championship quintet. He gives
credit to the strong showing of
the reserves and the Foster "for-
muila" which stresses patience,
spirit and willingness to experi-
ment.

By II. B. RUSKIN1
There's no "Little Brown Jug"
at stake, but the rivalry between
the Michigan and Minnesota hoc-
key teams is just as intense as it
is on the gridiron.
The two puck squads, who meet
Friday night at Minneapolis in
the first of a four-game series,
have faced each other 90 times
over a 25-year span, with the
Golden Gophers holding a distinct
edge over the Wolverines. The
Northmen have won 57 of the con-
tests, while Michigan has tri-
umphed only 24 times, with nine
terminating in deadlocks.
Change of Tide
In the last two seasons the Wol-

verines have had the better of
the play, winning four, while los-
ing two and tying two. The years
before 1946, however, were lean for
the Maize and Blue pucksters as
they garnered only one victory in
23 contests.
It was during this period, from
1939 to 1945 that two of the worst
defeats in Michigan's hockey his-
tory were inflicted by the Gophers,
as they downed the Wolverines
10-0 and 15-2 in 1945.
Series Born in '22.
The series, which began in 1922,
saw Minnesota grab the first con-
test, 6-3 and then take three out
of the next four tilts.
Almost one-third of the games

have been decided by one point,
indicating the closeness between
these two traditional rivals on the
ice.
In total goals scored, too, theI
Gophers hold a better than 2-1
margin, having netted the puck
298 times, while Minnesota goal-
tenders have allowed only 142
goals by the Wolverines.
