Vaisity SbarpshooteTs Watch Coach Parker ' s Every Pointer CaretuUy Basket oall W, ITH football safely wrapped up in camphor and mothballs for its annual winter nap, Coach Parker sounded his call to arms for the basketball season. Eleven men answered, of which number only three had already recei ved their letters in this sport. From these candidates a fine defensive as well as of- fensive team was built. Ably trained by " Hoot " and managed by Mrs. Morse ' s two boys, " Shorty " and " Peanuts, " the Basketeers had a most creditable record on the hardwood floor this season. During the Christmas holidays the team made their annual barnstorming tour of the North Central states, playing 13 games and winning seven of these. Because of the experience and training gained on their trip the boys were able to subdue all but one of their conference foes in the regular sched- ule and were invited to enter the S. I. A. A. tournament held in Bowling Green, Ky., during the early part of March.

Which all goes to show, though for the life of us we can ' t see how, why basketball, a glorified form of hoopla, and boxing, a modified form of murder, are winter sports. Anyhow, we have practically filled this space and all we want to say is that we do have basketball and boxing on the campus. Aren ' t you glad? • Page 90 •

This Yedr On The Gents played before their first audience of the season in an intersectional game with the Y M. C. A. team of Mexico City. Greatly out-classed by the wearers of the Maroon and White, the small-sized Mexicans went down to defeat. Lingo, a newcomer to the Centenary squad, played a very creditable type of ball, accounting for sixteen points of the total score. Louisiana Tech was Centenary ' s first opponent in the conference schedule, in which the Alma Mater handed her rival of long standing a taste of defeat. The Bulldogs took the early lead by sinking field goals, but Centenary, with a burst of shots, retaliated and were on the top end of the score at the close of the half. During the last period, the Gents kept control of the ball and did not try to sink many shots. Leaving the home floor for a road trip. Centenary met and conquered the Louisiana College Wildcats and the Southwestern Bulldogs. Both games were erratic and the team was considerably hindered by the loss of Decker, Beasley, Huddleston, and Hooper because of ineligibility and injuries. Highlighting the game with Southwestern was the field goal of " Cowboy " Hohmann, made after the game had officially ended. Coming to the rescue of his team mates, he used up a year ' s eligibility in these few moments of play. Returning home the Gents defeated the Normal Demons in an overtime game, although the Basketeers as a whole were a little off their usual form. Toward the end of the game, Snyder shot a field goal from the center of the floor to tie the score up, and in the extra-time period Pete Williams accounted for four points to " put the game on ice " as far as the Gents were concerned. In a return game with Louisiana Tech, Centenary dominated the game from the beginning. The bearers of the Maroon and White colors played brilliant defensive ball throughout the evening and considerably outclassed the Techsters. Bill Snyder was the " big noise " for the Gentlemen again in this game, chalking up 26 of the points made by his team. A trip to Ruston and a third meeting with the Louisiana Tech boys, found the Centenary Gents again in the victorious position, with the Shreveport Basketeers starting off in the lead and advancing rapidly. In this game, Pete Williams was high point man with fifteen points to his credit. Kennedy Lingo Rawlinson OUTZ Williams Decker f I I . I,
