The Varsity Squad Th 938 The Gents opened the conference race in a game with Southwestern of Lafayette, Louisiana. It was the first conference game to be played in the new gymnasium and the basketeers celebrated with a 44 to 28 victory. Bill Snyder hit most often to score nineteen points. After the opening five min- utes, the Gents had all the better of the engage- ment and before the end, everything was in the hands of the reserves. Louisiana Tech followed Southwestern to the local gym and suffered a worse fate. With every mem- ber on the team hitting the bucket with almost equal regularity, the Gents rolled up 52 points while holding the Bulldogs to a 29 point score. John Lingo was high scorer for the Gentlemen, with fourteen points. Between semesters, the basketeers went on the road. Their first stop was at Lafayette, where they repeated their victory over Southwestern. This time the score was 48 to 29, with John Lingo and Bill Snyder accounting for 31 points of the Gents score. Coach Curtis Parker

The Gentlemen made basketball history at New Orleans in a game with Loyola University of the Dixie Conference. In the highest scoring game ever played in that city, the Gents won 78 to 72 in an over- time period. Pete Williams was high scorer with twenty-one points, but every man on the Centenary team found the hoop at least once. Returning to conference competition, en route home, the Gentlemen stopped at Natchitoches and scored a surprising 40 to 29 victory over the Demons. Pete Williams was again high scorer with eighteen points, and played sensational ball to be the big gun in the victory. Still playing away from home, the Gentlemen in the second of a four-game series with Louisiana Tech came out with a 55 to 42 victory. Bill Snyder was hitting the basket from distant spots and his sixteen points did much toward taming the Bulldogs. Thirty-five points by Bill Snyder helped the Gents celebrate their return to the home court with a 69 to 26 route of the Louisiana College Wildcats. Snyder scored from every angle on the floor to add up this unusual score, and close guarding by the Gents kept the Wildcat forwards at bay throughout the game. Louisiana Tech was again too weak for the Gents. This time the score was 63 to 42, with Lingo and Snyder leading the way. Louisiana College made a pitiful 63 to 26 showing on their home floor, giving the Gents their eighth co nference victory. In the final game of the four-game series, Louisiana Tech proved to be a stubborn foe. They jumped into the lead in the opening minutes of play and held it throughout the first half. It was not until the latter part of the third quarter that the Gents overhauled their rivals. At the end, however, they were leading by a comfortable 52 to 42 score. Only by a one-point margin, given them by a sensational scoring spree of John Lingo, did the Gents win their final conference game against the Normal Demons. The Demons came to Shreveport cele- brating the silver jubilee of Coach Prather who had coached there 25 years this season. They brought their band and many members of the student body, who pepped it up throughout the game. But the Gents came through to win 37 to 36. At the S. I. A. A. tournament at Bowling Green, Kentucky, the Gents eliminated Kentucky Wesleyan Col- lege 53 to 35, and Wofford College 59 to 25, before being beaten in the semi-finals by Murray Teach- ers of Kentucky, by the narrow margin of one point.
