lt's f'iumpball" as Crowder and the Vyilson center spring for the toss up. State Champs 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 lsowi, manager Gimxi, Center 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.

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. , ,, , M . f A., Crowder tries for another basket in the Salisbury gam YXRHJROLQH forward Rimini, guard NIILLER, guard BECK, forward Hfxssma., forward
