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 ' : » .

Freshmen Basketball C ' OMPLETELY eclipsed by their varsity brothers, the Frosh, nevertheless, made a good showing for Centenary. In their one intercollegiate game with Louisiana Tech, the future Gents turned in a victory of 27-17, to add to the list of wins of their Alma Mater. Vivian and Hosston High Schools, also, be- came victims of the Freshmen Quintet, and their only defeat came at the hands of the Pleasant Hill five. These games as a rule were played as preliminaries to the varsity encounters and furnished much entertainment to the spectators who particularly noticed Bill Neumeyer ' s " bird-cage, " and the assort- ment of costumes worn by the Frosh. Members of the team were John Linsday, John Manson, Weenie Bynum, Peanuts Morse, Ted Olzack, Bill Neumeyer, Ned Looney, and Bob Irvin.
