Robert Scott Bill Spangler Wayne Thrash CENTENARY WINS It ' s two more against Sphnghill The first semester was just as the scribes pre- dicted. At the end of the winter road trip the Gents gathered in a three won and eleven lost record, and were the cellar dwellers of the Gulf States Conference. Beginning the second term, Pototo Ramerez and Connie Mack Rea entered the lineup and added a spark to the hard working Gents. The extra experience and height began to pay off with five straight victories and a smooth working club. The Gents began " a slow but steady rise until the buzzer sounded the end of the regular season. The standings found the Gentlemen in fourth place with an even break in sixteen conference games. Not bad for a team that was to be chased off the floor. Centenary made a clean sweep against Northwestern and Louisiana College and split two games with the rest with the exception of Springhill College and South- western Louisiana. One Hundred

Entering the post season play the Maroon and White sported a thirteen won and fifteen lost record. The first Gulf States Tournament was held at Natchitoches, and the Gents came out with third place by defeating Southwestern La. and McNeese State. They dropped a game to Con- ference Champions Mississippi Southern, but received two All-Tour- nament berths in Connie Mack Rea and Bob Wright. To add to the honors, Rea was chosen Most Val- uable Player to his team and captain of the All-Tournament five. The night before, the Gulf States All-Conference team was announced, and Bob Wright received a first team position. Hoke again fights tor rebounds. LOUISIANA N. A. I. B. CROWN Jim Whitler Bob Wright Two days later the boys traveled back to Natchitoches for the N. A. I. B. playoffs. It required two overtimes, but the Gents swept the two games by downing Tech for the second time in three starts, and Northwestern for three straight over the season. For the first time in fourteen years Cen- tenary went to a national tourna- ment, but lost to a powerful Mur- ray State squad in the first round. The reco rd now stands at seven- teen victories and seventeen de- feats to balance the book. This record may not seem impressive, but it represents fourteen wins in the last twenty games. This was accomplished by a group of boys and their coach who made up in hard work what they lacked in experience. One Hundred One
