1912 BASKET BALL TEAM

Page 103 text:

Saturday night Alton met Mt. Vernon to decide second place. "The Alton High School team defeated Mt. Vernon by a score of 25 to 20. It was quite a sur- prise, as it was not generally believed Alton would defeat Mt. Vernon. The latter team has been showing considerable strength, but in the last few games the Alton boys have displayed considerable playing ability and, although very small, seem to withstand the onslaught of the heaviest teams. The games, although quite close at times, always saw Alton in the lead. The first half ended with the score of 16 to 9, favor of Alton. Mt. Vernon took a brace in the second half and the game ended 25 to 20, favor of Alton." The standing of the teams at the close of the tournament was: Games played. Won. Lost. 1. Granite City ............ 3 3 0 2. Alton .,..,, -- 4 3 1 3. Centralia ..... 3 2 1 4. Mt. Vernon ..,. 4 2 2 5. Duquoin .... 3 1 2 6. Benton- .... 3 1 2 7. Robinson Ma- 1,.. ,,,.. , 2 0 2 8. Eldorado M-- ..... ..... 2 0 2 Reviewing the tournament, it can easily be seen that the showing made by Alton was truly marvelous. Granite City played the easier teams first and defeated Centralia when they were in a crippled condition. Had Alton met Centralia after defeating some of the easier teams instead of the first game, the result would un- doubtedly have been different. Also comparing the number of games played, Granite had played 27 games before coming to Centralia, and Centralia 30 before entering the tournament, while Alton had played but 8. The whole team deserves great credit, but too much praise cannot be given to Captain Taylor who had entire charge of the team during the season. It is a difficult position for a captain to hold when he must coach his team and take the entire responsibility, especially when playing away from home, as on the Centralia trip. Taylor took hold of a bunch of new players, no two of which had ever played together before, and with- out any assistance, whipped them into one of Alton's greatest basket ball teams. Second place in the Southern Illinois Basket Ball Tournament is a great achieve- ment for Alton High. But one team in the history of the school can be compared with the 1912 team. The team was characterized all the season by splendid team work and a desperate fighting spirit which is always found in a well managed team. The basket ball season of 1912 is a proof of the fact that this year has and will have been the greatest in the history of the school. "0h! wad some power the giftie gie ye, To hear yourself as others hear ye." --TAYLOR HYA'rr. 101
