No team probably ever played as many close games in one season
and lost, as Huntington did this year. This was to be expected in view of
the fact that seven county clubs were studded with seniors of two or three
years experience. Huntington had only two regulars from the previous
season, McCarty and Robinson. Underclassmen were selected mainly who
offered to have possibilities of bringing outstanding basketball to Hunt-
ington by another season, if not right now.
Lacking height for backboard control, the boys had to be developed
in man-for-man defense and press at half court to steal the ball rather
than wait and get it off the board. Hours of practice were spent mainly
developing defensive technique to tie into a fast break. Though the record
doesn't show it, every game played this season was a thriller except the
first game with Centralia and the first half with Clarksburg.
Who can forget the night we scored 14 points the first half against
Clarksburg and 56 the second half? Someone, shall we say, "Teed Off?"
At any rate, the man-for-man and fast break boosted our average points
per game to 58. This is really nice going. Mainly contributing to this
offensive record was Neil Uhrig, who was, believe it or not, high point
man in the county with 230 points. Congratulations Neil for that and also
for making the first all county team selections. May your next two years,
as well as other sophomore and junior regulars, be even better.
Seniors Robinson and McCarty will definitely be missed. These boys
were hard workers, good sports, and played for the love of the game. Bob
McCarty was honored for his sportsmanship, when he received the award
for Huntington at the tournament. Burns also opened the stops on the floor.
Thanks, fellows, for some real thrilling basketball at Huntington
this year. C. O. Hurd, Coach
