Johnson ' s 21 markers could not avert a 55-48 defeat at the hands of Springhill and the following night saw the Southerners of Hattiesburg freeze the locals 43-39. Continuing the road swing Southeastern took care of us 64-61. Stopping off in Pineville en route to Shreveport the Maroon and White floored the Louisiana College Baptists 86-40. Veatch meshed 21 counters. Revenge was sweet as " Buss ' s Busters " laid the South- easterners low 68-52. Johnson was high with 21. Loyola was the victim of a " hot " night for both Johnson and Veatch as they hit 25 and 23 points, respectively. The final was Centenary 65, Loyola 48. The Wildcats from Louisiana College returned their game here and were tamed to the tune of 80-40. Dean Veatch was right and tied his previous one-game total with 29 points.
