Next Friday evening the University basketball team will open its season, meeting the Boston University quintet at Hemenway Gymnasium.
Most of the practice time so far has been spent in offensive and defensive drill, but during the past week there has been a series of practice scrimmages for the squad.
Coach Wachter is still uncertain about his starting line-up, but the following, who have taken part in all srimmages, will probably take the floor Friday: Leekley and Dorn, forwards; Green, center; and Captain Malick and Barbee, guards. Slocum, a promising forward, has lately, been nursing an injured foot, which will probably keep him out of the first game. Coombs, a quard, and Lane, centre, are two men who are practically sure to get into the contest at sometime on Friday.
Team B has lined up in practice as follows: Bailey and O'Connell; forwards; Filoon, centre; and Kroel and Hatch, guards.
Manager S. M. Bysshe '27 announces a competition for second assistance manager, open only to Sophomores. Candidates should report at the Hemenway Gymnasium tomorrow evening at 7.30 o'clock. One man will be chosen after eight weeks competition, and the winner will automatically become manager in his Senior year.
