BASKETBALL r— — 3 j— — -j ' j Coach Glenn Smith Coach Ab Young, Gent cage mentor for the 1948-49 season, held his initial practice October fourth. A star-studded squad of fifteen men reported, bringing together some new talent to bolster the strength of the veteran squad returning from last year ' s cagers. To fit the talent at hand, Coach Young added a " fast break " to the old reliable " pattern game " familiar to Gent fans. The Gents got off to a good start before dropping their first tilt with Stephen F. Austin on their home floor. In the return match the Gents broke the Lumberjacks ' winning streak with a three- point margin on the home floor.

The Pep Squad was original- ly organized in the fall of 1947 but with the death of football it was disbanded. The reorganization took place in the winter of 1948 under the direction of Don Barnes, head cheerleader. At basket- ball games the members of the group would sit in a body complete with maroon and white shakers. One trip was made by the group as a whole. They journeyed to Natchitoches for the Cente- nary - Northwestern game. Sponsor of the group is Mrs. Joe J. Mickle. Officers of the Pep Squad are: Glennette Middlebrooks, President; Sue McCullough, Vice-President; Joyce Youngblood, Secre- tary; Bob McKay, Treasurer and Jo Carol McCasland, Publicity Chairman.
