GENTS ' BASKETEERS CL Claude Teel, Guard Martin Pfau, Forward John Norwood, Center Instead it turned out to be one of the most thrilling games played in the state during the season, because in the second overtime period, South- western dropped in a bucket just as the gun went off and eked out a 36- 34 victory. As February opened, the Gents won another at the expense of Tech, this time by a score of 36-33 and it looked as though the Gents had at last started to click. Melbourne Crawford, Guard

' 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.

OSE SEASON When they met the Normal Demons in Shreveport on February 7th, the Gents put up a great battle but the gods of fortune would not smile upon the Gentlemen and once again they dropped a two point decision, this time to the Demons sparked by their 6 ft. 9 in. center. After a second defeat at the hands of Southwestern, the Maroon and White color bearers took their second win from Louisiana College, and followed it by a re- venge victory over Southeastern, but it was the last of the season for the Gents because they lost the final three games. The final count showed that the Gents had won only eight out of twenty- nine games and even though the percentage is not so good, the number of two and three point losses to the best teams in the conference shows that the team was a victim of numerous tough breaks. To top off all of this, at the middle of the season an injury jinx stepped in and stayed until the end of the season. All in all the Gentlemen had a good year on the court and the prospects for next year look fairly bright. Although Captain Flash Harmon is the only man lost by graduation, Mike Majcher, forward, and Ed Hoynoski, center, will not be able to return to school next year as Uncle Sam has engaged them for a year to help strengthen the United States Army. Unless the kindly stern old gentleman has other plans, Alex Penny, for- Captain Lurlin Harmon, Guard ward; Melbourne Crawford, guard; Ed Murphy, center; John Norwood, center; Claude Teel, guard; and Martin Pfau, forward, will return to resume their old athletic careers. With these seasoned varsity men and with three or four good players, who have the extra height that is needed, coming up from the freshman ranks, Head Basketball Coach Elmer Smith should find a ready, willing and able group waiting for him to blow the whis- tle for practice at the start of the 1941-42 season. Mike Majcher, Forward
