The Saints of Beloit started the 1954- 1955 season with a thriller of thrillers against Rockford East. Trailing the E- Rabs 46-40, jim Ewing found his form as he hit for six points in the closing moments. To climax the game he sank two free-throws after the final buzzer to give the hometowners a 48-46 triumph and himself individual honors with 15 markers. Hitting the road the Purple met Ra- cine Horlick who handed them their first defeat of the season, 73-56. A lack of experience was costly as Beloit's tall team committed numerous offensive and defensive errors. Beloit continued their streak of home court victories by beating their arch- rivals from janesville in an exciting 68-51 contest. Jim Ewing matched Janes- ville's Bob Kreul with 18 points to share top scoring honors. Beloit displayed a good amount of "scrappiness" as they continually killed rival rallies. A highly regarded South Milwaukee team met their match in the crew under Coach Roy Melvin. A couple of new BASKETBALL SUMMARY faces took eminence in this game as lit- tle Dave Schneider and big Dwayne Berg gave Beloit a long and short shot punch respectively. Berg sank 20 points as he established a career high and gained individual scoring honors. jim Ewing backed Berg with an important 15 more in the 64-47 tilt. The Saints then moved back into con- ference competition with Madison West and gained a 59-41 verdict for their sec- ond loop triumph. jim Ewing paced the Beloit offense with 17 points as well as being a steady influence on his team- mates. Beloit's control of the boards was shown by the fact that 9 of their 21 field goals were on rebound shots. Dwayne Berg and jim Adams had 14 points apiece as they supplemented the offensive punch. Returning to non-conference play Be- loit edged the Belvidere Buccaneers, 59- 58. Again Ewing captured the position of top pointmaker with 21 points to his credit as the Purple cagers made 19 of their 28 field goal attempts. In the final minute with Beloit nursing a one point l PAGE 145

VARSITY ROW 1-T. Nitzsche, J. Blair, L. Pohlman, D. Schneider, E. Henry, G. Bonier, D. Hardyman. ROW 2-D. Watson, G. Har- rell, J. Adams, J. Reimer, D. Berg, D. Mackey. J. Swannack. J. Ewing. Coach Roy Melvin fielded a very young team this year as only three seniors gained regular berths. This seems to be a good indication that next year's cage coach, Johnny Erickson, will have the material to go far in his return to the Beloit High School bas- ketball scene. The Saints were co-captained through the season by seniors Jim Ewing and Dwayne Berg. In a post-season election Berg was voted honorary captain while Ewing's worth was indicated by his being named via his teammates as most valuable. Ewing, consistently the top Purple offensive and defensive threat, was the only Beloiter to receive any rating in the Big Eight honor teams as he staked down one of the all-conference guard posts. The team was only able to reach the .500 mark in fourteen conference tilts. In non- conference play the Purple had only one defeat, the finale of the Dubuque-Beloit series, raising their regular season record to a satisfactory 10-8. Two streaks were ended this year. The first was a string of sixteen consecutive home court victories. The other was the Saints failure to reach the State Tournament after two straight appearances. The Beloiter's Madison trip was abruptly ended in their second game by a fine Monroe cage congregation. The Cheesemakers Went on to Madison and made an impressive showing. The Saints receiving major letter awards were Dwayne Berg, James Ewing, David Schneider, George Harrell, James Adams, Larry Pohlman, Terrell Nitzsche, and Donald Hardyman. PAGE 144

BASK ETBAll SUMMARY lead jim Adams and the game's top scorer, Tony Asherns of Belvidere, com- mitted a double foul. Both made their pressure shots giving the Saints an- other verdict. The Beloit four game winning streak came to an abrupt halt on this December eve as johnny Orr's Dubuque Rams wal- loped the out-of-staters, 87-52. Their main attack came from Bob Hulburt and Gene Grunau who combined for 55 mark- ers, more than the entire Beloit squad. jim Ewing led the losers with a mere 11 points in the Hnal of two-year series which saw Dubuque victorious twice. Beloit's four game road trip was con- cluded with a 50-49 heartbreaker. Keno- sha was paced by the night's top scorer, Bob Hartman, a southpaw long artist. Behind Hartman's 14 came jim Adams and Dwayne Berg at 12 each. Beloit, who jumped to an early lead, had some closing shots, but they were all in and out, consequently our Big Eight record dropped to the .500 mark in four games. Led by big "Dink" Berg, Beloit gained the lead in the fourth quarter after a 'PAGE l4fi poor display prior to that point. The Madison East Purgolders nearly caught up, but the score ended at 50-49. jim Adams was the evening's number one scorer with 16 tallies as the Purple captured an undisputed claim to third place. Going neck and neck into the final three minutes with Racine Washington Park the Saints lost several offensive big guns including Dwayne Berg and jim Adams. Minus these men Coach Me1vin's charges slipped to a 65-57 de- feat. All-conference forward, Bob Har- rigan, had 18 for Park. Guards, jim Ewing and Dave Schneider had 12 points apiece for the losers. Sounding like the early 1900's Beloit beat Madison Central by a score of 17-8. Electing to freeze the game Central found the Saints willing to let them and consequently the only action much of the time was that of Dwayne Berg and Central's Tim Chasey moving around the pivot positions. The host team failed to make a single field-goal while Beloit's little senior guard, Dave Schneider, was
