The Andrew Lewis Wolverines opened its 1955-56 season in Rocky Mount against Franklin County. Our inexperienced boys pulled out a close 51-45 victory. Another trip, this one to South Boston, gave the Wolverines a lesson in basket¬ ball. Halifax County stamped Salem 71-52, to hand them their first defeat of the season. Richmond was the next destination and the highly rated Springers from Highland Springs beat the Salem boys 52-47. Watts, Henson, Desper and Yost looked good in these first three games. After the holidays, the Wolverines went into an overtime to beat the Alumni, 47-42. Desper and Watts teamed for 21 of A. L.’s points. Looking for their first Group I victory, the Wolverines lost a close 61-52 game to E. C. Glass of Lynchburg. Watts collected 12 points, while Henson and Cregger got 10 each. The Wolverines resorted to a strong second half to whip Wm. Fleming, 65-51. Watts, hitting mainly on hooks, led both teams with 27. In an old city-county fued at Roanoke College Gym, Jefferson defeated Andrew Lewis 55-48. Before a crowd of 1,100 people (over capacity), Viar and Desper kept A. L. in the game with 10 apiece. In Vinton, the Wolverines lost to Wm. Byrd, 55-40. The smaller Salem boys never were very much in the game. Cregger hit for 14 points. G. W. of Danville built up a 37-17 half time lead, and then coasted to a 54-56 win. Cregger and Desper got 12 and 11 points to lead a good A. L. second half. Against Covington, the Wolverines won a close overtime game by 54-51. Desper led the scoring with 19 points, but he had a lot of help from Cregger, Yost, and Watts. Although Blacksburg led at half time, Salem came back to win an easy 75-51 decision over the Indians. Desper tallied 15 points, as the whole team saw much action. To even their season record, the Wolverines had to beat Lynchburg in the College Gym. Accurate shooting and good ball handling gave our boys a hard-earned 41-37 victory. Pete Watts collected 13 points for scoring honors. In another game at Roanoke College, Wm. Byrd outplayed the Wolverines and took a 45-39 victory back to Vinton. Watts looked good with 14 points, but had no help. In the big American Legion Auditorium, Jefferson ' s Magicians ripped the cords with a hot 65 per cent shooting accuracy and rolled to a 68-33 triumph over the Wolverines. Watts canned 12 points, but again had no help from teammates. Pete Watts and Byron Yost led a second-half rally to defeat Wm. Fleming 51-44 in a city-county tussle at Roanoke College Gym. ; Although Fleming was leading 26-23 at half, Watts and Yost dumped in 19 and 10 points to bring the victory.
