One of the leasons why the goals \verc moied In two feet was to prevent the more acrobatic players from "climbing the wall." Allen, whose Jnyhawkers have won a do«:n Big six •chnmjilon- fhips In 17 jears. says that experiment'! have shown that the best sholi under the . suggested conditions are not from directly under the basket but from the side. • Allen, who also Is the athletic director at Kaasas. points out Hint raising Hie basket ahn moving it In would consldeiably lessen the advantage now enjoyed by the tallei players under the hoop They no longer could merely reach lip and drop the leather through the net They actually would have "> -shoot, as the shorter fellows liave been doing nil atom;.
