QUINTET IS FAVORED TO DOWN MEDFORD TONIGHT
GRAY AND BOYS FORM NUCLEUS OF CRIMSON ATTACK
Weakened in numbers but valiant in spirit, the Harvard quintet meets Tufts tonight up at Medford, for the first game since vacation. The Jumbos having lost to B.U., should fall a prey to the Crimson five, and the game is regarded more as a test under fire for the new five than as a desperate bid for victory.
Coach Wes Fesler had his men drill for the Jumbo zone defense yesterday, and polished off his rotating attack which now concentrates on getting the two tall men, Bill Gray and Captain Dick Boys, down under the opponents basket with the greatest possible speed.
The starting lineup will have Boys and Leavitt White at forward, Gray at the pivot post, and Dick Fletcher and Ray Lavietes at guard. Lavietes is the only doubtful starter, as he has been troubled with a slight cold, but he is sure to see service in the course of the evening.
