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
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.
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.

Pinkerton, Lenhardt, Freeman, Holloway, Campbell, Naughton,
