In hopes of capturing its fourth victory from Yale in as many years, the University basketball team will board the train for New Haven at 1.05 o'clock this afternoon, prepared to-give their opponents a strong fight, even though it is greatly handicapped by injuries. The two fresman teams will play at 7.30 o'clock as a preliminary, and the final contest betwen the University teams will probably start about an hour later.
Yale will enter the game a favorite. The Blue quintet has won two decisions from Dartmouth, while Harvard lost to the New Hampshire team by 13 points. The University of Pennsylvania, conquerors of the Crimson aggregation, lost decisively to Yale. The same was true of Rhode Island State.
Coach E. A. Wachter is looking forward to a victory, nevertheless. The team played consistently, even brilliant at times, against the University of Maine team last Friday, and against Northeastern Wednesday, the first string men made a good showing. The first half was not a true indication of the team's strength, inasmuch as, with the exception of Captain J. N. Barbee '28, the starting lineup consisted of second team material. Neither A. W. Slocum '28 nor H. T. Wenner '30, the two regular forwards, will be able to start because of injuries, although the former wil make the trip.
Captain Ward and P. K. Fodder are expected to star in the Yale offense. The latter is the second highest scorer of the Intercollegiate Basketball League. The Freshmen will face strong opposition in the Yale 1931 team, which has set-up an excellent record this season. Among its victims are the Dartmouth Freshmen an dthe Princeton Freshmen. The Harvard first year men lost to Dartmouth by a 30 to 25 score.
