Coach Buckner and his 1940-41 Freshmen Basketball Squad. Under the guidance of Coach Norman Buckner, former Tulane great, the Junior Gents cage squad made a rather impressive showing this season as they not only served as varsity competition, but also played numerous games with local commercial clubs as well as other Freshmen teams throughout the state. Possessing more height than Junior Gent squads have for several seasons, they used it to advantage and their games were unusually fast and furious. All the boys played good rugged ball and their spirit was impressive. Jud Thornton and Bo Whitten, two long and lanky freshmen, carried the brunt of the punishment with S. D. McConathy ' s play pushing them all the time, but the high score man was Gordon Brown whose one handed shots were nothing short of phenomenal. Two of the most spirited players on the Freshmen team were Durr and Hubbard, who turned in fine performances constantly. All in all, the boys had a fine team and Coach Buckner is to be congratulated because from these Freshmen are going to come several first class players for future Gent teams. THE FRESHMEN TEAM

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
