Cowles Calls Crusaders Toughest Foes
id f r Con
By ROG GOELZ
Coach Ozzie Cowles answered a
lot of questions regarding the
coming Holy Cross game that have
been bothering Wolverines cage
followers in an interview for the
Michigan Daily yesterday.
The Michigan mentor, first of
all, explained that he was satis-
field with the selection of Holy
Cross as the Wolverines first
round opponent in the NCAA east-
He stated that the Michigan
squad considered the Crusaders
the most formidable oppont to be
faced in the Madison Square Gar-
den games which get underway on
Cowles has a 2-1 record over the
Holy Cross squad having taken
three games from the Eastern team
when it was coached by "Moose"
Kraus, now cage mentor at Notre
Dame. His Dartmouth quintet,
which won seven eastern champi-
onships in eight years, dropped
their only start against the Cru-
saders under Cowles's direction to
a Julian Holy Cross squad.
Won't Predict Outcome
The Michigan mentor declined
to make any direct prediction as to
LAKELAND, Fla., March 11-
(P)--The Detroit Tigers sent 16
men to bat in a 12-run outburst
in the fifth inning as they mauled
the Cincinnati Reds 15 to 3 in an
exhibition game here today.
The American Leaguers put to-
gether eight hits, four walks and
two National League errors to get
the dozen runs across the plate.
Rookie outfielder John Groth
drove in three runs with a homer
and right fielder Vic Wertz knock-
ed in three more with a triple.
Bill Pierce, the second Tiger pit-
cher of the day, got credit for the
win. Henry Perkowski, the Reds'
second pitcher, was the principal
victim of the Tiger scoring spree

the outcome of the Wolverine's
first appearance in an NCAA play-
off, but stated that he felt Michi-
gan could win the game if they
turned in a performance equal to
those of the road games against
Purdue, Illinois and Minnesota.
The Wolverines are treating the
Holy Cross game as another road
contest although it is supposedly,
played on the neutral Madison
Square Garden count. Thiis i:
based on the fact that the Cru-
saders have had the opportunity
to play many of their regular sea-
son games on the Garden floor.
Garden Court Shorter
When asked whether he thought
that the high scoring games
played in the East would be a dis-
advantage to the Michigan squad
"which is used to Western Confer-
ence games in which the winning
team seldom achieves more than
65 points as compared to the 85
or more points that are not infre-
quent in Eastern games, Cowles
pointed out that the floor of the
Madison Square Garden court is
ten feet less in length than the
one at Yost Field House and there-
fore teams playing on it have an
increased chance to shoot which
boosts their scores. He believed
that Michigan would take advan-
tage of this shorter court and
would not be out-scored by an
eastern club on 'that factor.
The next question tossed in the
direction of the Wolverine coach
concerned what type of defense
would be used to stop the Crusa-
der's scoring attack which has
frequently gone above the 70 point
total. Cowles replied that the
Michigan team would tenatively
start the game with a man-to-man
defense which would be subject to
change as the game progressed.
Hopes for Rule Change
Another question which has
been asked on many occasions was
whether the Western Conference
ruling allowing teams to talk to
their coaches during time outs,
would be in effect at the NCAA
games. Cowles expressed his de-
sire to have the NCAA officials
permit this since the Big Nine had
been selected as the conference to
give the ruling its national tryout.
As the tournament rules now
stand Michigan, or and other team
in the play-offs, would not be al-
lowed these time-out conferences
with their coach.
Coach Cowles was not concerned
over the fact that the Wolverines S t , 1iehy
