BASKETBALL The Maroon and White of Centenary was carried on the courts this past year by a bunch of athletes whose natural ability would delight the heart of any cage coach. Among the outstanding Gentlemen who played on the hardwood this year were Lurlin " Flash " Harmon, diminutive captain and spark- plug of the quintet; A. R. Jowers, Junior sharpshooter whose marksmanship made him high scorer for the past two years; Alex Penny, rangy forward and frequent offensive threat of the team; Michael Maj- cher, other forward whose scrappiness and accuracy made him a valuable man; and Melbourne Crawford, one of the most brilliant guards to ever wear the Maroon and White. These men composed the starting five but the Gents ' reserves were the best in years. Heading these was big Ed Murphy, center and general utility man who saw a great deal of service; John Norwood, tallest man on the squad and a good man under the basket; Ed Hoynoski, who broke into the starting line-up late in the season and displayed a good eye for the basket; Martin Pfau, Bob Barrie, and Claude Teel who could always be depended on when needed. Suffering the loss of only one man from the previous year, Captain Max Bowerman, the Gents cagers opened the season with only the brightest prospects in view. They opened the season with a 43-26 victory over Magnolia A. M. With the green team of last year showing well due to last season ' s ex- perience, the Maroon and White quintet took their second contest from Magnolia also and then closed their pre-Christmas campaign with a last quarter victory over the highly touted Loyola cagers.

' WITH A WIN While everyone else was enjoying their Christmas vacation, the Gentlemen cut their holidays short and struck out through the mid-west on their annual northern tour. Although they were undefeated up to this point, it was soon evident that the northern competition was a little too fast for them and the dif- ference in the style of play was evidenced by the excessive fouls called against the Gents. In the first game, Centenary met Kentucky, Southeastern Conference champs of last year, and a 70-18 defeat was not unexpected. The rest of the tour, however, was equally disastrous because the Gents also lost the other five games on the trip. The last game was really a heart breaker as the Gents lost to Cape Giradeau Teachers by a 40-39 count. On January 7, the Gents opened their S. I. A. A. and Louisiana Conference race with a brilliant 59-19 slaughter of Louisiana College in Shreveport. Captain Harmon and his team mates continued on their winning ways with a 44-37 victory over Louisiana Tech on Jan. 9th, but two nights later, they met their first defeat of the race at the hands of Tech in Ruston. This game proved a turning point in the race for the Gents because it started a slump from which it took ten games to recover. However, while los- ing ten games the Gentlemen were meeting some of the best teams in this part of the country. These included Henderson and Arkansas State from Arkansas and Stephen F. Austin from Texas. The last loss of this group was the most interesting. The night before the Gents had been overwhelmed by Southeastern, then the cellar team in the conference, and when they met Southwestern on January 31, the worst was to be expected.
