A. L., 47— William Byrd, 39 The Wolverines met a much scrappier group of William Byrd Terriers than they had in their first meeting with them. The game was a nip and tuck affair, and it wasn’t until that very decisive fourth quarter that the winning points were pushed through the basket. The first period ended 7-7, but at intermission the score read 19-17 for the Wolverines. Then both teams settled down to work, but it was the Wolverines who finally mustered the power for the final winning markers to make the final score read 47-39. Shelor was the sharp-shooter with 19; Firebaugh of Byrd came next with 16; and Peters of the Wolverines was third with 10. A. L., 42—Jefferson, 55 The Wolverines threw a scare into the mighty Jefferson Magicians in a tight game played in the Wolverine gym, although the Magicians did win 55-42. The Wolverines started out fast and the first quarter ended 10-10. Then the Jeffs slowly pulled away to a half-time score of 30-21; but the Wolverines weren’t out of the game yet. They mustered all the strength possible, but it wasn’t enough to subdue the Jeffs who pulled away to a close 55-42 victory. Rudy Lacy of Jefferson was undisputedly high man with 36; Shelor was runner-up with 12; and Thompson and Peters followed with each collecting 10. A. L., 53— William Fleming, 54 This was a game filled with everything that a real basketball game should have. The Colonels of William Fleming for the second time this season won a heartbreaker from the Wolverines by the score of 54-53. The first quarter found Fleming ahead 14-10, but the Wolverines fought back to a 28-25 advantage at intermission. From this time the contest continued to gain speed and it wasn’t until the last seconds that the winner became apparent. James Saul of Fleming walked off with top scoring honors with 19. Shelor and Peters followed with 16 each. A. L., 39—V. P. I. Freshmen, 59 The Wolverines closed out their season by dropping a 59-34 decision to the Freshmen of V. P. I. The Freshmen de¬ veloped a 31-16 half-time lead and never got into trouble. Charles Eaton of V. P. I. took top honors with 15. Thompson paced the Wolverines with 13 and Shelor followed with 11.

Basketball team got off to a good start this year and continued with a very successful season under the excellent supervision of Coach Copenhaver. We. the team, lost only one out of six games, this to Jefferson; but whipping them in the second meeting evened that up. Although a lot of mistakes in playing were made, the boys played as a team and finished with a four game winning streak. 4. L.38—Fleming. 4, L.36—Jefferson A. L.52—Byrd. . . A. L.45—Jefferson A.

VARSITY BASKETBALL A. L., 39— -William Fleming, 41 In the first game of a double-header played at the American Legion Auditorium, the Wolverines lost a thrilling game to the Colonels of Fleming 39-41. The score stood 22-21 for Lewis at half-time and the Wolverines kept the lead until the final seconds of the game when the Colonels were able to sink the winning markers to make the final score read 41 to 39 for the Colonels. Black was high-man with 15, and Shelor and Peters followed with 12 and 10 points, respectively. Slaydon was top- scorer for the winners with 10. A. L., 26— Jefferson, 51 The Jefferson Magicians stretched their winning streak by downing the Wolverines 51-26 in their first meeting this year. At the end of the second quarter the score was found to be 29-14 for the Magicians who continued to push the points through the net during the rest of the game to a 51-26 victory. Although the Wolverines lost, their fighting spirit was shown continuously through the game. Rudy Lacy, the Jeff high-scoring center was held down considerably during the evening but was still the game’s high man with 15 points. Peters was the Wolverines’ high man with 11, while Shelor made 8 and Thompson 7. A. L., 49— Danville, 53 The Wolverines lost the next game to Danville by the slight score of 53-49. They tied up a 33-21 half-time lead at the end of the third quarter only to be edged out by the Cardinals of Danville in the last minute of play. “Herb” Thompson of the Wolverines was high man for the evening with 22 points. Bolton of Danville was runner-up with 16, and Shelor followed with 12. A. L., 54— William Byrd, 31 The Wolverines won their second game of the season by downing the Terriers of William Byrd 59-31. The score stood 18-14 the end of the first quarter and steadily increased for the Wolverines to 32-16 at intermission and 59-31 at the end of the game. Thompson again paced the Wolverines’ scoring with 23; Shelor was runner-up with 16; and Arrington of Byrd fol¬ lowed with 10. A. L., 35—V. P. I. Freshmen, 39 The Tech Freshmen barely mustered enough strength in the last minutes to edge the Wolverines 39-35. It was a nip and tuck game all the way with Tech leading at the end of the first quarter 11-9 and at half-time 17-16. They maintained a 25-24 edge at the end of the third period and both teams continued to fight for the lead to find the score late in the final period read 35-35. It was then that the Freshmen dug deep and came up with the winning points. Peters of the Wolverines was high man for the evening with 19. Eaton of the Freshmen was runner up with 12. A. L., 47—Roanoke Jayvees, 39 In one of the fastest and most exciting games of the season, the Wolverines defeated the Jayvees of Roanoke College 47 - 39 - The Wolverines had ten points before the J. V.’s got started and led 10-9 at the end of the first quarter and 24-20 at intermission; but they had trouble finding the basket in the third period and were therefore outscored by the J. V.’s in that period. In the fourth and final quarter, however, they came roaring back to upset the J. V.’s 47-39. Peters was high man of this game also with 20. Shelor of A. L. and Jones of Roanoke shared runner-up honors with 12 each. A. L., 27— Lynchburg, 42 Although the boys from E. C. Glass of Lynchburg defeated the Wolverines, the game wasn’t a “walk away.” It was a hard-fought battle all the way. The end of the first quarter found the Wolverines ahead 6-5; but they were unable to keep that lead over the confident Glass players, who made the score at half-time read 19-11 and the final score read 42-27. Franklin of Glass was high man for the eve ning with 17. Herb Thompson, who paced the Wolverine scoring, and Cox of Glass shared runner-up honors with 13 each. 4 126
