Head Coach Curtis Parker and Assistant E. T. Renfro Starting the season off with an inex- perienced and mediocre team, which later developed into one of the strongest aggre- gations in the Southern Intercollegiate Ath- letic Association, through the commendable coaching of Curtis Parker and E. T. Ren- in), the Centenary College basketball team chalked up seventeen victories against eight defeats for the 1934-35 cage season. ummavu o o he The quintet was handicapped by the loss of several outstanding players, and with only two lettermen returning for Coach Parker to use as a nucleus, the team in spite of the difficulties, emerged from the depths of a weak team into one of the class- iest clubs in this section of the United States.

THE FROSH SQUAD by the Gents before starting their annual barnstorming tour through the Mid-West, which resulted in the annexing of five games and the loss of four. This tour in- cluded some of the strongest outfits in America ; the Gents clashing with the Daily Tribune, Taylorville, Evansville, Illinois Wesleyan, St. Xavier, Depauw, and the Southern Illinois Teachers teams. After returning from the tour the Ma- roon-clad basketeers took on a few inde- pendent teams before tackling their confer- ence games, which they opened with an im- pressive victory over the Loyola Wolves by a score of 52-20. The Loyola tilt was the first of ten, which the Gents survived, until the final tilt with Louisiana Normal, when they received their first conference set- back since 1933. They beat Southwestern, Louisiana Tech, Loyola, and Louisiana Col- lege, twice. In two games with Louisiana Normal they broke even. This record placed the Gents in second position in the conference, being topped by the Western Kentucky Teachers. Ruled by experts and officials of the Conference as co-favorites with Western Kentucky, the Parker clan was invited to take part in the elimination tournament at Jackson, Miss., for the purpose of crown- ing a potential champion. Ten of the strongest quintets in the conference were selected for the tournament, which was cli- maxed with the Mississippi Millsaps being crowned champions, defeating the Ken- tucky outfit. The Gents survived the first round of play, but on account of injuries to various players they were eliminated in the semi-finals. Although not capturing the title this season, the Gents have the distinction of winning the title in 1932 and 1933.
