were surprised. Among those reg
istering amazement, later dis
gruntlement, were the Beavers.
Since way back Slats Gill has
had his gang using zone defenses.
And time and again that impene-1
trable zone formation of his has
been impregnable. Three seasons
ago it was Billy Reinhart’s Web
foots who did the waltz - me - j
around-again passing. If I recall
correctly, they once trimmed the
Beavers, 16 to 9, with an offense
similar to that used by Oregon
State the other night.
Well, it was zone against zone
Saturday, and the drive of the
Bucks opened up the Beavers. Rut
the long arms of our lads zoned
out the Oregon State attack and
it paid practically no dividends.

Just about twice all evening the
Beavers worked the sphere
through that zone defense. If it
hadn't been for Hub Tuttle out on
the foul line they'd have been mas
sacred. As it was, it took free
throws to keep them within hail

was Oregon proficiency. The Ducks
honestly earned the title of “driv

Badly battered, but still in the
northern division basketball title
race, Washington’s Huskies re
turned to their home campus last
week to rest up from the disas

for the Washington State series

that new life must be injected into
the faltering Husky lineup within

Idaho Fighting Bitterly
Coach Howard Hobson is antici
pating two of the season's bitterest
games from Forrest Twogood’s
stubborn Vandals. On the Inland
Empire trip three weeks ago,
Idaho put up two terrific struggles
before losing by margins of two
and three points.
Hobson spent a major portion of
yesterday’s session discussing Ida
ho formations, and weaknesses
evidenced by the Ducks in Satur
day's Oregon State game.
The Ducks went through a light
scrimmage yesterday against Ida
ho plays before calling it a day.
They also worked on individual
•Johansen to Return
Wally Johansen, Webfoot guard,
is rapidly recovering from flu, and
should be back in action the latter
part of the week. Johansen heard
the Oregon State game from a bed
in the infirmary.
Coach Hobson is planning on
stressing both zone and man-for
man defense in practice this week,
although it is probable the team
will use a man-for-man against
Idaho this week-end.
Against Idaho on the Inland
Empire trip, the Webfoots held
Twogood’s Vandals under 30 points
in both games, but failed to pro
duce the offense they showed Sat
urday against Oregon State.
Work Against Idaho Plays
Special work against Idaho de
fensive maneuvers will undoubted
ly be one of the main things em
phasized in practices this week.
Idaho uses a deliberate, slow
moving attack similar to the one
used by Slats Gill’s Orangemen.
Saturday night the Webfoot of

hitting them from outside Oregon
State’s zones and Lewis, Anet,
Silver, and Gale hitting them from
all over the court, Oregon simply
failed to give the Orangemen an
