Game Opens Division
By BILL’ STRATTON
Assistant Sports Editor
1947 Northern Division basketball competition gets undetf
way tonight when Howard Hobson’s high flying Ducks risk
their undefeated pre-season record of 11 straight wins against
the "darkhorse” Cougars from Washington State in McArthur
court. Game time is 8 p. m. The second game of the series
is slated for Saturday night.
Although the Webfoots have breezed through their pre
season schedule with no setbacks, the courtmen from the Pa
louse country are expected to give them a tough battle all the
way. Coach Jack Friel’s squad has played an 18 game warm
up schedule dnd is expected to be in top-shape for the con
Cougars Big '46 Threat
Last season it was the Cougars who wrecked Oregon's title
hopes by dumping them in three out of four games played in
Oregon’s 1946-47 squad tied a record this year by winning
11 straight in their pre-conference schedule. Not since the
1937-38 season has an Oregon team won their first 11 and en
tered the conference with an unblemished record. The 1937
38 team went on to win 14 and drop 6 to win the Northern Di
vision crown. \
Coach Hobson is expected to start the same five that has
set the pace for the Ducks thus far. At the forwards will be
high scoring Ed Dick and lanky Ken Hays. Adding mote
height under the back board will be 6-foot 8-inch Roger Wiley
at center. A pair of midgets, Stan Williamson and A1 Popick,
will probably be chosen as starting guards.
Tall Cougars Start
At forwards, Friel will start a pair of 6-foot 3-inch lads, Bob
Sheridan and Bob Svendsen. ..Sheridan was a letter winner on
the 1942 squad. Svendsen was a pre-war Cougar frosh player
who played with the strong Farragut Navy five last winter.
WSC’s starting center will be 6Toot 4-inch Gene Sivertson who
was transferred from forward to fill in the vacancy left by Vince
At one guard will be George Hamilton who rated many all
northern division honors last season and Bing Dahl, a pre
war University of Washington player.

For Scheduled Occupancy
The new veterans’ dormitory, or
iginally scheduled for completion
last month, is not ready for occu

In the meantime, temporary hom
ing arrangements have been made
for all men assigned to the new unit.
