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.

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.

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.

Tommy Dooley —This was Tommy’s first year on the squad and he is a senior. His rebounding was very valuable and he will be missed by the Blue and White next year. With more experience he should become an excellent player. 1
