193940 Basketball ,, A ' , The Redbirds in the hardwood sport found a new coaching setfup when the season got under way. As coach we found Robert Geddes who came to us after live years at Ritenour High in St. Louis County, Mo., where he enjoyed a successful athletic career. As assistant coach we found Antone jureziz who came to us after nine years at Jennings High in St. Louis County, Mo. Geddes and Jureziz found a big task in building a team since Pinkerton, Lazar, Campbell, and Freeman were the only ones from the first team squad of last year on hand and of these Lazar and Pinkerton were to be through at the end of the Hrst semester. Many new faces were on hand and the coaches set to work to see what could be done toward building a formidable team. The Redbird basketeers opened their bag of tricks at Gillespie on December 8, but Red Nicolet's crew had a short season of practice and enough games experience that they set us back by a 2646 tune. Alton had plenty of good shots but the ball wouldn't go through the payfoff station. The next night we played host to Jerseyville and upset them 43f2O. The following week the squad invaded Litchfield and grew better as the game grew older. Litchheld was plenty thankful to hear the Bnal whistle while they still had a 3 point lead and won 33f30. Even in this defeat it began to look hopeful for a good season. Conference hostilities opened December 15, at Wood River. Our sharpshooters were as scarce as chicken teeth and it seemed as if the Oilers had magnetized their basket and were using a metal ball. We lost 43f15. Again Alton hopes were sent high wh an Edwards' ville dropped into our gym and tl' wed out again after losing 2045. During the Christmas hol .ya the squad journeyed to Mt. Vernon 9 the invitational 1 ir 'ki' which Alton won ' 1935. A slow lirst 3 quarters lost for Alton hen the fourth quarter produced as many p ' ts as the first three had. Albion won 32f2 and Granite City won the tournament. f Play resumed after vacation on January 5, whe we met Collinsville there. They proceeded to p aster us 40 to 25 but we drew blood again the "t night when we came through late in the fourth quarter to subdue Madison 31f3O on their floor. The following week we were off color and lost to Belleville, there, 3Of15 on Friday night, but hit payfdirt in East Side on Saturday night where we upset Pick Dehner's "Packers" 38f31. Granite City mowed us down 45f26 and looked like champions as early as January 19. The next night found Alton in Vandalia and with 3 minutes to go Vandalia pushed into a lead-we lost 32f28. Wood River called here january 25 and got away with a 39f29 victory to appease their anger of a year before when we stopped them in an over' time game. Our second home game of that week found Decatur scoring in the first half every time they shot and we lost 43f23. Edwardsville's Tigers "laid" for us February 2, and pasted a defeat on us 3861. The next night the Kahoks scalped us right here on our own floor. The next week Madison came here and lost 2922 and then Belleville the very next night nosed us out 24f21 in a tight battle. February 16, East St. Louis brought our home games for the season to a close by letting us win 42f35. A week later Conference play ended at Granite where we were trounced 6lf3O. The State Champs were on their way. Troy was made awfully happy in the sectional meet at Edwardsville on March 7, when they spoiled our tournament chances 38f36. With hopes we look to 194Of41 since the second team won 11 games and lost 4 for a "hope" builder. lklfllf -Y-X' ll' . ' Basketball Letters were Won by: Pinkerton, Lenhardt, Freeman, Holloway, Campbell, Naughton, Patterson, Beane, and Manager, Marvin Champlain. V
