l;or the second straight year Harlem's sophomore basketball Pups tied for second place honors in the Big Eight Conference with a commendable 9-5 win-loss record. Capturing victories over all but two of their Big Eight rivals, the spirited sophomore team provided numerous thrilling moments for their devoted fans.
Not one, but three, overtime periods highlighted the first East game before the Pups tasted a bitter and close defeat. A frccthrow by Gar)- Peak at the end of the first overtime was in vain as the East Rablcts went on to down the Pups by a 68-65 margin.
When Harlem met Freeport on our home court, a last-second basket by AI Dahlmeier amid the deafening roar of an exuberant crowd sank the high-flying "Pretzelettes" by a single point.
A former Little All-American, Mr. Jerald Mell, coached the spirited Pups and much of their success could be attributed to his noticeable influence, experience and general knowledge of the game.
After the end of the regular season, which came late in February, all of the team's energy was devoted to preparation for the sophomore tournament in Bclvidere, which annually brings together the best of the sophomore teams in the area. This year's Harlem team gave a glimpse of the future varsity basketball team which will be comprised of these fine young athletes.
As the final horn signaled the end of the 1964-65 basketball season, the sophomores and their coach could reflect with pride and satisfaction upon their achievements both in practice and on the court.
