Coach for Basketball Team.

The management of the University basketball team has engaged Thomas Riley, of the Webster basketball team, as coach during the next two weeks, previous to the games with Yale and Princeton. The two games with Cornell showed that the team lacked accuracy in tossing goals and in passing the ball. The coach will devote most of his time to drilling the men in these two departments of the game, so that the team may be in much better condition when it meets Yale than it was in the Cornell games.
