• BASKETBALL (Continued) 13 out of 15 free shots while the Gents were only able to make three out of ten. Allums _ j . The Gentlemen encountered m. M t le Texas A. M. Cadets and the j Hi Texas University Longhorns twice JB $ during the course of the season and split the series with the Aggies and Ames the Steers. The Gents played the Cadets on foreign soil while they were hosts to the Steers in Shreveport, February 15-16. In the first game against the Steers, the locals were unable to hold an early lead and were defeated, but came back in the second game before a large gathering to take an overtime period which was won in the last 15 seconds of play when Earl Nolan caged a field goal from out near center to put the Gents a point in the lead and settle the hostilities. The Centenary Gentlemen had only two regulars, Nolan and Johnson, remaining from the championship ball club of last year and these veterans proved to be the only two scorers on the ball club. The key men, Crowley, captain and center, Moran, all-S. I. A. A. guard, Finch, guard, and McElreath, guard, were lost through graduation and it practically wrecked the ball club. Coach Parker was faced with the problem of finding a center, and there was a notice- able lack of height on the club. There were only two experienced men, but the team f .. , Nolan Womack

BASKET BALL V Curtis Parker Coach Blanchard Johnson Captain The Centenary Gentlemen started off their 193 1-32 basketball season with a 2,500-mile midwestern trip which sent them up against ten of the worthiest basketball foes in the country. The Gentlemen captured four out of the ten frays and emerged with valuable experience which served them well after they started meeting Conference opponents. On this trip, the Maroon and White warriors played such strong fives as those of Loy- ola U. and DePaul U. of Chicago and Concordia U. of St. Louis. The Gents showed the fans of this section an improved ball club after their jaunt and came through with six wins and two losses against Conference rivals. With this im- pressive record, the local collegians were invited to the S. I. A. A. tourney, which was staged at Jackson, Mississippi. The Gents were defending champions, having captured the crown the year before, but they failed to repeat this time when they dropped a mis- erable bail game to the University of Louisville quintet. Charity shots, which had been a stumbling block all season, proved the Gentlemen ' s downfall when their opponents made BASKETBALL SQUAD

OSLIN Morgan BASKETBALL (Continued) came around nicely, taking all things into consideration, and they were hard to beat when they were clicking. Looking forward to the basket- ball team of 1932-33, the Gents will be faced with the loss of Nolan and Johnson, the best pair of for- wards to ever don the Maroon and White uniforms. Their value to the team could not be underestimated and it will be many a day before there can be a pair to duplicate their performances on the hardwood floor. The freshman team this year was the best in the history of the school, but their value to the varsity is problematical. The 1932-33 basketball season holds a very large question mark for the " Gentlemen " of the hardwood court. During the past season, the Gents played around the 500 per- centage mark and graduation claimed Nolan and Johnson, co-captains, also Womack, a guard. The bright side of the question mark is that last year ' s Freshman team was above the average. But their play must improve, as they will be playing against some of the very best basketball teams in the Mid- West, Southwest, and the South during their next cam- paign. Smith Blakemore
