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

• 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

P ' red Willis, Coach FRESHMAN BASKETBALL RESUME Under the capable guidance and tutorship of Fred Willis, the Cen- tenary Freshmen basketeers concluded a highly successful season. Coach Willis drew up a finely coordinated fighting machine out of the raw ma- terial that was available and exhibited no small amount of coaching ability in developing a team that could give such a good account of itself. Two teams, composed entirely of Centenary freshmen, were entered in the city league this year. The elite of the yearlings, playing under the banner of the Red Ball Transit Company, won the City League and City championships. This is the first time in the history of the school that any freshman club has won such signal honors and it must be said to their credit that they played superb ball all the way through. The record of the Red Ball crew shows that they lost only two games during the season, one to the World Champion Celtics, and the other to the Cosmopolitan Club, a team they defeated twice during the course of the season. Olson ' s Terrible Swedes, one of the best traveling amateur clubs in America, were the victims of the Transit quintet in one engagement, while Sparco Mohawks, the nemesis of the freshmen for many years, were defeated three times. The Bossier Lumbermen, champions of the Y League, met the Junior Gents in two engagements and were repulsed each time with a loss. The all-S. I. A. A. stars happened to cross the path of the Frosh and were swept aside. From the Freshman team that Coach Willis hands on to Coach Parker, plenty of fine players should be available for next year ' s varsity, assuring Centenary an unusually strong 1932-33 team. mi B,u, ' » EimU te0SM.L taEOBRU.
