Just a little higher, Smiley Gillock fires a long one Basketball In the next game Andrew Lewis lost a heartbreaker to William Fleming, 40-39. Again the Wolverines led almost the whole game and it was not until the last minute that Fleming went ahead, but this was for keeps. Marshall Mundy drove in for a lay-up to put the Wolverines ahead with two minutes remaining. It looked as if the game might end like this, but Bobby Oliver sank a last-minute, desperation shot to sew up the game for the Colonels. Wes Gillock played an out¬ standing game for AL, and led both teams in scoring with 16 points. Mundy added 11. Jefferson defeated the Wolverines in the next game by a score of 55-41. In the first half the Blue and White led but couldn’t stand success and often practically gave the ball to the Magicians. Marshall Mundy led AL with 13 points but Bobby Burford tossed in 22 for Jefferson to take scoring honors for the game. Andrew Lewis got revenge for an earlier defeat by beating Blacksburg, 32-29 in the next game. The score was tied with but one minute remaining when Marshall Adundy was fouled and awarded two free throws. Fie made the first to put the Salem team ahead 30-29. The Wolverines took the ball out, and Russell Smiley sank a lay-up to clinch the victory. Smiley played an out¬ standing game for AL. He controlled both backboards with his aggressive rebounding and also added 10 points. For their next game, Andrew Lewis went to Danville and was soundly beaten 71-39. The Wolverines made a close game of it for the first half, but could not keep up the pace in the last two quarters. Marshall Mundy led the Wolverines with 19 points but Mickey Crawford, George Washington’s outstanding forward pumped in 28 points to take high honors for the game. Bobby Price —Bobby, a sophomore, should develop into a real star before he graduates, if he continues to develop as he has done so far. He played guard and his fine shooting was a boost to the team. Jimmy Candler —Jimmy was one of the most improved members of the squad. His rebounding probably over¬ shadowed his shooting a little. He has another year at AL and should be a strong candidate for All-City-County next season.

Now remember, boys Managers: Crosswhite, Everette Ellers, Haupt, Eddie Ellers Basketball When the Wolverines opened practice this year, Coach Harless had only two lettermen, Jack Harrison and Marshall Mundy, returning from the 1950-51 team. However, with these two and several boys who had gained some valuable experience last year, but had not won letters, the Blue and White opened their season on January 2, with the Alumni. Despite the fact that the Alumni had not had much practice, they put up a game battle and it was not until the final quarter that the Wolverines went ahead to stay. Wesley Gillock, Jack Harrison, and Bob Price led Andrew Lewis with 8 points each. Jim Black was high for the Alumni with 9. The game ended with AL ahead 37-32. George Washington of Danville came to Salem with one of its best teams in years and was expected to roll over the Wolverines. However, Andrew Lewis, behind the dead-eye shooting of Marshall Mundy, put up a stiff fight all the way. In the last quarter, the Salem boys began to tire and the fresh reserves from Danville increased the lead. Mundy led Andrew Lewis with 17 points, but Cary Henderson, Danville center, had 18. The final score was 55-32. Blacksburg edged the Wolverines 31-27 in the next game. The Salem boys led most of the game, but the Indians got “hot” in the last few minutes to insure the victory. Bob Price and Mundy were high for AL, with 7 points each. Jack Llarrison also played a fine floor game. The Wolverines went to Lynchburg for their next game with E. C. Glass and were soundly thrashed 72-30. The Hilltoppers had too much experience for our boys although we never gave up. Wesley Gillock was high for Andrew Lewis with 8 points while Mundy and Harrison each added 6. Ken Burnette, high-scoring Glass forward, was high for the game with 16. ALL-CITY-COUNTY ’52 Wesley Gillock —Wesley’s first year on the Varsity was an outstanding one. He played forward and ranked second in scoring with 137 points. He will be back to play for the Blue and White next year. CO-CAPTAIN ’52 Jack Harrison —Jack was probably the best defensive player on the team, and his fight-to-the-finish spirit was admired by all. This was his second year as a letterman.

Russell Smiley —Russell, the tallest player on this year’s team, stood 6 ' 5 " . He probably played his best game of the year against Blacksburg in the middle of the season. If he can learn how to keep from fouling out, he should be a great player next year. Nelson Dudley —Nelson is a senior and this was his first year on the squad. He was a very valuable reserve, and with a little more experience he would have been quite a star. Basketball Andrew Lewis got back in the winning column by upsetting William Byrd in the next game 44-36. The game was “nip and tuck” until the last four minutes when Marshall Mundy sank 4 quick set shots to erase any possible Byrd hopes of a victory. Mundy led bo th teams in scoring with 19 points. Wes Gillock added 12 points and also played a smooth floor game along with Jack H arrison. The Wolverines won their second game in as many nights by soundly beating Lexington High 45-32 the next night. Lexington led by one point at the end of the first half, but Andrew Lewis came back strong in the second half to clinch the victory. Marshall Mundy tossed in 18 points to lead both teams in scoring while Bob Price added 9, in addition to playing an outstand¬ ing floor game for AL. Andrew Lewis continued their winning streak by thrashing Covington in a rough game by a score of 42-21. Andrew Lewis took a quick lead and was never headed. Marshall Mundy again took scoring honors by pumping in 22 points, one more than the entire Covington team. Wes Gillock and Jack Harrison added 7 and 5 points respectively and both boys played very good floor games. E. C. Glass defeated the injury-ridden Wolverines 60-26 in the next game to end the AL winning streak at 3 in a row. Jack Harrison had the flu and could not even dress. Mundy had an infected foot and although he played a little, he was slowed down a great deal. Wesley Gillock put up a game effort to keep AL in the game by scoring 8 points. Bobby Price acted as play- maker and played an outstanding game in addition to adding 4 points. Nelson Dudley also showed that he could score by adding 6 points to the Wolverine cause. Ken Burnette took high scoring honors for the game with 19 points. Stop posing, boys All that for one little ball
