BASKETBALL It is difficult for a sports historian to give a proper history of the 1947-48 basketball season. The varsity team with a heavy schedule made up of top-notch prep school and high school opponents proved a disappointment to the ardent followers of Abbey teams. Abl coached by Mr. Iarnes Hanrahan, a star in his own right, the team started off rather welll scaring the life out of the Cheshire team by going out in front in the third period, only to falter in the fourth period and lose by a close margin. In the game with St. Thomas the team was really brilliant, outplaying the "Saints" in every department. We all came home from that game convinced that our team had been beaten by poor officiating. Yet after this excellent showing we lost to an inferior Holyoke Catholic High School live. Lack of teamwork licked us. And so the season went, victories and defeats-with but one breathtaking performance against Marianapolis. Those of us who were fortunate enough to see this contest can never forget it. Coming from behind with Marianapolis leading b 17 oints at the second period the Abbey team surged ahead, blufling the Knights by slick teamwork and brilliant handling of the ball. Imagine! Marianapolis score but 2 points throughout the third and fourth periods. There is no doubt that Abbey suffered from prima donna trouble most of the season. We hope next year that the junior varsity, who will step into the shoes of the varsity. will remember that victories in basketball are gained first of all by teamwork.
