The J.V. squad had a rough season, compiling 13 wins
against 11 losses.
The team had fairly good depth but no outstanding size. The
squad didn't seem to be able to work together, even though
there were good players. I
Tough rebounding andugood shooting was the key to the
sparse success of the squad. Rebounding took an extra bit of
muscle and leaping ability, considering the size of the team.
Leading rebounders were Tony Richards and Bill Finzer,
Scoring for the team was quite spread out, with the taller
players doing most the scoring. Leading scorers were Bill
Finzer with 280, followed by Tony Richards with 182 and Ron
Graham with 150. Other key players were Doug Beeber, Steve
Anderson, and Gary Wohlers.
