' ,THE YONCOPIN Frank Boydston, " C " Frank is doubtless one of the best basketball players Centenary has ever had. For the fourth consecutive year he has starred. No Cen- tenary player plays harder than Boydston. He loves the game, and fights every second that he plays. He is really everything a basketball player should be, a good passer, a fine dribbler, and a splendid goal shooter. Frank gets his sheepskin in June, and will be missed greatly from the ranks next year. Glenn Crawford. " C " Glenn was again one of the stars of the team. He is one of the hardest workers; and one of the most faithful at all times. He was good at tipping the ball at center and equally as good when it came to short shots under the basket. His loss to the team will be greatly felt next year. Beverley Faulk, " C " " B. C. " or " Napoleon " as he was known to his teammates was the midget of the team, but that was no handicap to him. He could hold his own with any opponent. Being fast and alert which offset his small- ness of stature he was all over the ball court doing excellent guard work and slipping a few baskets through the net. Faulk is to be back next year. Lorenz Teer, " C " The Teer brothers are certainly good when it comes to being good basketball players. Lorenz made a very excellent guard and was a hard fighter and played the game well. He will also be with us next year. i4 M} ■tfW sm 17]

:the yoncopin REVIEW OF 1927 BASKET BALL SEASON When a basket ball team had only eight days of practice before its first game, due to unavoidable circumstances, and then plays eight games in eleven nights, five of them on the road, there is plenty of evi- dence and proof that several defeats will result. Such was the fate of Centenary ' s basketball team of 1927. Coach Hoy did not join the team until the day of its first game, having been absent on account of illness. However, he worked hard and earnestly with the team during the few days of practice in between games. There is always a time in some branch of sport when every thing seems to go wrong, and it seemed as though the 1927 basketball team at Centenary was a victim of such circumstances. 1927 BASKETBALL RESULTS Centenary Centenary Centenary Centenary Centenary Centenary Centenary Centenary Centenary Centenary Centenary Centenary Centenary Centenary Centenary Centenary Centenary College.

THE YONCOPIN V1 ■■-•••:• Charles Smith, " C " Smith made a splendid showing in basketball his first year on the varsity. His efficiency is unquestioned, and his speed enabled him often to make baskets or prevent his opponents from making them. He was chosen as " skipper " for the 1928 basketball squad. Leon Scales, " C " Leon, a tall and lanky athlete has much promise to make a good basket ball player. This season he did not get to play in many of the games because of not having much experience on the court, but next year he will be ready to go. Sheldon Teer, " C " Sheldon was one of the good men that came from the Freshman of 1926. This season he displayed his excellent ability as forward. Teer was a hard fighter and never gave up the fight until the wh istle blew. Poole Connell, " C " To see Poole handle a basketball it would seem that he had been brought up with one. In any game he was always good for a few points and his height was a great asset to the team. He could play any position on the court, and will be a great help to next year ' s team. 172
