McCoy Still Pondering Cagers' Abilities

Despite the fact that Michigan's
basketball campaign is two games
old, Coach Ernie McCoy still does
not have a reliable basis for evalu-
ation of the material he has at his
The season opener at Michigan
State last Saturday cannot be re-
garded too seriously. Its main
function was to elminate early-
season bugs which are bound to
crop up among the players. Fortu-
nately the Wolverines had enough
drive to win that one by th-ree

good or bad, had to be taken with
a grain of salt. McCoy will still
have to wonder how his charges
will react under serious pressure.,
The fact that Miami was so
badly outclassed did give thej
Wolverine mentor a chance to
look beyond his top, five men.
Until that game he hid concen-
trated on forwards Mack Su-

prunowicz and Don McIntosh,
guards Hal Morrill and Chuck
Murray, and Leo VanderKuy at
the pivot position.
Bob Olson and Bill Doyle re-
.eived the opportunity to display
their talents against the Redskins.
Olson succeeded on two of three
attempts from the field and added
one free throw. He made a few
floor errors but he was not able to
iron out bugs against State. Doyle
made one point.
JIM SKAIrA'S work at forward
was noteworthy. He was among
the starters and wasted no time
getting into the scoring parade,
proving that he knows his way
around the basketball court. Mc-
Coy must be impressed with his
natural ability.
In yesterday's practice at the
Yost Fieldhouse, Skala was in-
volved in the most important ex-
periment of the season thus far
He was switched to guard along-
side Hal 'Lefty' Morrill and in
combination with the front line
of McIntosh, VanderKuy and
Cage observers have secretly
been hoping that McCoy would use
that setup. If it works out, the
Wolverines will boast potent scor-
ing punch at each of the five po-
sitions. In time the Skala-Morrill
duo may help Michigan fans for-
get the loss of Pete Elliott and
Bob Harrison.
