Off to a blazing start the Davis BASKET- BALL TEAM slowed down at midseason, because of the loss of four players, but finished with an ll-5 record. Davis' early season spirit caused much controversy in the county as experts won- dered what a Maroon squad, with Ted Ramsey, Harvey Billingham, Dave Brown, and Roddy Tenaglier. would have fared against such out- standing teams as New Rochelle and Pelham. New Rochelle, the W.l.A.A. champions, beat Davis twice by about ten points due mainly to their overwhelming height, five boys over six feet three. However, height lead proved no prob- lem to the Halstead men earlier in the year as Billingham and Brown, both six feet three, held their own against even the taller boys, with Sam Uzzle. a six foot two and one-half sophomore, chipping in. To illustrate how important the loss of these four was, one has only to look at the figures. Davis accumulated a record of 7-0 before the January graduation and a 9-5 total afterwards. Wihite Plains, which had fallen victim to us 50-30 in the first encounter, defeated us by 23 points in the second meeting, a difference of 43 points. The leading scorer for Davis was Charley Shannon, a speedy forward, who racked up 157 points, an average of 9.8 points per game. Before Billingham graduated, he had averaged 13.6 points. Second highest scorer on the team was Lou Cerrone, the captain and play-maker. In the latter half of the season, Cerrone was the only regular who remained from the '48-949 team. In the all-county balloting at the end of the year, there was not a Davis man on the first team. However, Harvey Billingham and Ted Ramsey made the second team, despite playing only half the season. As a matter of fact, Billing- ham was only one vote shy of the first team. In the past, none of Coach Irv Halstead's teams have ever lost by more than ten points. However, there is always a first, and the first came in the second White Plains game. And was it decisive! Davis was in the ball game until Charley Shannon, Lou Cerrone and Sam Uzzle fouled out. Then, the Maroon completely fell apart and lost by 23 points. The following week Davis lost by 9 points to New Rochelle in a game that could well have ended by a 5 point margin, if the refs had called it a different way. Denny Huelfer hit with a set shot as the buzzer, ending the first half, sounded, but the refs disallowed it. However, when Jesse Arnelle, New Rochelle's all-W.l.A.A. center, tapped in a rebound as the game ended, the refs ruled it good. The Hilltoppers hit their stride in the final two games of the year, topping Portchester and then trouncing Edison. Lou Cerrone hit his two-year high as he piled up 21 points in the Edison game. When he fouled out in the final quarter, he received a tremendous ovation, just as Ramsey, Billingham, Brown and Tenaglier had, a month and a half earlier. The Maroon squad for 1951 seems to take on a bright air considering the fact that four of the five second half starters are returning. With Charley Shannon, Arthur Goodson, Sam Uzzle and Denny Huelfer, Buss Enke, and Herbie Herling all returning for the season, Coach Hal- stead will have a team to work around. Bud Blair and Joe Notargiocomo will have a half season, both being January graduates. The Jayvee, under the tutelage of Coach Gordon Bucher, had a mediocre season, winning eight games while losing the same number. How- ever, the team was very well balanced with many boys breaking into starting roles, and no indi- vidual standouts.
