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.
Season Record: 13-11,

Into two Groups
Basketball was very big at Benson in 1973. About 100
freshmen turned out for basketball. Coach Hugh Pennington
decided to break his charges into two groups.
The 'A' group had an outstanding 10 and 2 season. Coach
Pennington concentrated on teaching the intangibles:
unselfishness and hustle. Vern Marshall and Mike Brannen
were chosen as the most valuable players by their teammates.
Terry Burns, Ken McGee, Jeff Swanstrom, and Doug Beaty
were outstanding, also.
Coach Vern Melvin took charge of the 'B' team. Melvin's
group was led by Tim Brusse, Mel Tellinghnsen, Rick Booker
and Mike McHugh. The 'B' squad finished 5 and 5.
