'Two Week Vacation Gives
Cagers Chance ToImprove
With the next basketball games cheduled for a week from Mon-.
day, Michigan's once-beaten hoopsters will have plenty of time to
smooth out the rough spots revealed in last Saturday's loss to Central.
Both on the offense and defense the Wolverines failed to give
the performance of which they are capable. First game jitters, lack of
experience and failure to adjust to the strange floor were painfully
evident in the battle with the Chippewas.
e' * * *
MICHIGAN found itself outshot from the floor and foul line and
deprived of its share of rebounds. The Wolverines cashed in on only
11 of 19 free throws as opposed to 24 of 32 for the Chips, and as a
result yesterday's practice session at Yost Field House included an
extensive charity toss drill.
Adding to Coach Ernie McCoy's woes was yesterday's report
that Dave Nash, a top sophomore forward from East Grand
Rapids, had enlisted in the navy. The six-foot four inch forward
had figured prominently in McCoy's rebuilding program and saw
action against Central Michigan.
Ten new men took part in the season's opener and most per-
formed creditably considering the situation. Lanky Milt Mead, a sopho-
more forward, showed signs of good things to come by scoring 16
points on six fielders and four free throws.
"Twenty-one more games and no place to go but up," about sums
up the Wolverine hardwood picture.

the type to go out on a limb with

his comments mainly to the cali-

tough this year") and says simp-
ly, "We're rebuilding," in reference
to Wolverine potential.

new forward lines with newcomers
George Chin, Doug Philpot, Doug
Mullen, Ron Martinson and Pat
Cooney, all sophomores.
While the big concern last
year was defense, this campaign
the Wolverines are well set for
rear guards. At the 1950-51
season opened, only Graham
Cragg had had any appreciable
defense experience, and a new'
goalie was needed.
This season Michigan has hold-
overs Cragg, Bob Heathcott, and
Alex McClellan, plus Willard Ikola,
a talented sophomore goal tender,
for the defense corps. Soph de-
fensemen Reg Shave and Jim
Haas, plus the above mentioned
players, cause Heyliger to state,

MICHIGAN STATE, stronger by
far than it has been the past two
seasons, and Montreal, one of the
top three Canadian college outfits,
make a valid yardstick to measure
how the Wolverines should fare
this year. The Spartans have
tuned up for Michigan with two
easy triumphs over Ontario Agri-
cultural College, and they have
vowed an intention to "knock off
some of the big teams-Michigan,
North Dakota, Denver."
