The Hdrc wood Court The only defeat of the year in their conference schedule was handed to the boys by Millsaps College in Jackson, Miss. Snyder did his utmost to bring the team out in the lead, running up a total of 20 points, but the end of the game found the Gentlemen on the short end of the score. Sports writers of Jackson com- mented on the poor officiating at the game. When Centenary brought Mississippi College to defeat, the team had conquered a quintet which had not lost a game for the season, prior to their encounter with the Gentlemen. The boys from across the river used a zone defense which was something entirely new and different for the wearers of the Maroon and White. Naturally a bit confused, the Gents trailed the whole time until the last five minutes when Decker sank a field goal to tie the score. Snyder then came through beautifully and sank timely shots from the floor to push Centenary out in the front. February 18th brought with it a return engagement with Louisiana College in the Municipal Auditorium. The game was slow and listless from the start to the finish, with Centenary showing poor defense as well as of- fense. Hooper, who had not fully recovered from a leg injury, hot a last minute field goal to eke out a win by one point. The Gentlemen next journeyed to Natchitoches to play Louisiana State Normal. In previous years the Demons had held a jinx on the representatives of Centenary on their home court, but before a large crowd, the Shreveport Quintet broke this jinx and defeated their opponents. Closing out his college career on the bas- ketball squad, " Big Bob " Decker was accredited by Coach Parker with playing the best game in his his-- tory as center on the Centenary team. Decker, Hooper, and Huddleston were all three scoring threats. A fourth and final defeat was handed to the Louisiana Tech Bulldogs by the Gents, who proudly displayed for the first time their new Maroon and White jackets. The score, 39-19, does not indicate the ability of the Techsters, for Centenary moved off to a fast lead, and the Reserves were called in to play the majority of the ball game. Although the game as a whole was listless and dull, the entire squad seemed to have an accurate eye for the basket, which made Centenary chalk up another win. An invitation to the S.I.A.A. tournament in Bowling Green, Ky., was the reason for the meeting between Centenary and Union University. Union took an early lead, with the Gentlemen right on her tracks. Both teams played excellent brand of basketball, but the wind-up of the game found Union the victorious of the two. Spectators commented that these were the two best teams ever seen on a court together in a long time. Hooper Huddleston Snyder BOWERMAN w ■ ' 4 ' : » .

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,
