Page SEASON REVIEW OF BASKETBALL At the beginning of the season, the Eagle cage men were the popular choice to represent Begion Three in the State basketball tournament. and many experts picked them to climb the long hill to State championship. With only one returning regular, the Eagles decided to base their attack on delib- erate down-court marches instead of the fast breaking game of last year. ln pre-season games with the defending State champion, Woodrow Wilson of Dallas, Abilene broke even by winning 24-21 and losing 18-24. After defeat- ing Peacock 38-22, the Eagles carried top honors in winning District Meet with top-heavy scores. They further added to their record by defeating Burkett, San Angelo, Big Spring, and Sweetwaterw--all by impressive margins. How- ever, our team received a setback in being defeated by the strong Hobbs, New Mexico, Quintet. With their steady advance the Eagles defeated next the mighty Bailey team from East Texas 28-17, but were the victims of Bailey in the next contest 18-30. ln one-sided games Sweetwater, Big Spring, Ovalo, and Eorsan fell before the mighty Abilene team. ln the Begional Meet Breck- enridge fell 28-18, and Lakeview was eliminated 33-21. Vtfhen Abilene went to the State Meet, they successfully navigated tho first round by winning over Kingsville 32-28. They were not so lucky in the semi-finals, however, when defeated by Sidney Lanier in an overtime game 31-33. Their luck also left them when they lost third place to Bowie of El Paso 22-23. Abilene this season piled up a total of 824 points to the opponents' 487 points. For the second year in succession, the Eagle cage men advanced to the State tournament only to be defeated in the finals and semi-finals, respectively. Basketball became more popular this season in that not even standing room was left in the gym- nasium during Begional Meet and at several of the important games. Al- though next year's team will not be so seasoned as the one for this year, the outlook is rather good for another squad of State Meet caliber. With the splendid co-operation of the student body, a winning team is in the making. No, Connor didn't fall Seven storied House of David JU3
