THE PIONEER Basket Ball " Ty " Miller “Gus” Spruhan ' Beetle” Shaw The 1945 Basket Ball season was the most successful one a Salem team has had in many years. Andrew Lewis won twelve games and lost only three during the regular season but were defeated in the state Class A semi-finals at Alexandria—35-30. The other losses were to Army reservists at V. M. I., George Washington High of Dan¬ ville, and Thomas Jefferson of Richmond. However, all of these losses were away from home and each of these teams was soundly defeated in Salem. Led in scoring by Dave Miller with 273 points and Guy Spruhan with 227, the high scoring Wolverines, who set a new Salem record with 602 points, won both the Class A Western District and the Roanoke City-County Championships. The only loss in district games was a very close 36-35 defeat in Danville. However, the Danville team was easily beaten in a return game 62-44 while both Roanoke and Lynchburg were defeated twice. The City-County Championship was easier to win as Jefferson was defeated twice, and William Byrd and William Fleming were both easy prey for the high-stepping Wolverines. In the game at Vinton, Andrew Lewis had a field day and ran up their largest score of the season, winning 72-19. The climax of the season was the second Roanoke game which decided the District Championship. Before the largest crowd ever to see a game in the Lewis gym, the Wolverines defeated the Jeffs 45-30 and proved that their previous victory in Roanoke had not been a mistake. 4 66
