lt's f'iumpball" as Crowder and the Vyilson center spring
for the toss up.
Called by many as one of the greatest basket-
ball teams the state has yet produced, the great-
est team High Point High School has ever turned
out, elimaxcd a brillant season of play by captur-
ing thc coveted N. C. State Championship crown.
The Black Bison, in having the most fruitful
season of any local squad, tasted the bitterness
of defeat only once in twenty-eight games and
this came at the hands of a non-conference foe

at the Mid-South tournament in Greenville,
C. However in this same tournament the
Bison basketeers bounced back to wallop VVilson
and bring back the consolation trophy.
Lcd by eo-captains Richard Crowder and
Billy Ray Hunsucker the local cagers started the
season playing championship ball which con-
tinued throughout the hazardous schedule, in-
dicating to those fans who knew the sport that
this was High Point's year.
Starting the ball rolling by entertaining several
non-conference foes, the locals played the part
of the impolite host by severly trimming their
invited guests. Continuing their winning ways,
the Bisons ran up a string of victories over con-
ference and out-of-thc-loop foes, including Duke
and Davidson gl. Y.'s and a highly rated Carolina
freshman team. 'lihus when the Mid-South
tournament came along the team had racked up
an impressive 19 game winning streak. But
came the slip and Crecnville nosed out the local
aggregation by one point, so the High Pointers
brought back the consolation trophy.
After the tournament the Bison completed
their schedule and incidently became the cham-
pions of Guildford County by defeating their
old rivals Greensboro, not once, but twice.
High Point emerged on top of Western Con-

ference with a perfect record of 14 loop wins.
Playing in the state tourney in Durham the locals
hustled their way through the first round by de-
feating Raleigh 55-41, then in the semi-finals
the Bison turned on the heat and knocked off
X'Yilmingron 54-44 and earned the right to meet
Wilson in the finals. Vkilson played hard, but
the Bison played harder and Wvilson came out
the losing end of a 44-41 game. The High
Point Black Bison were State Champions.
Individually the Bisons had everything.
Crowder topped the scoring column but was
closely followed by Harris and Hunsucker.
lncidently these three boys were placed on the
mythical all-state team of which Crowder was
acting captain. But to us the whole team was
all-state. Cooper with his great all-round work,
lfllington and Wfvhite coming through in the
pinches with their outstanding floor play all
made our all-state team, which was not mythical. .
These were our all-state, N. C. State Champions.
