I Basketball Men Nick Duncan, Guard, Captain Nick, who for two years was on the All-S. I. A. A. basketball team, was kept out of the tournament this year by a sprained ankle, which he received in the last game of the Millsaps series. There is no doubt in the minds of most of us that he would have made the team again this year had it not been for the sprained ankle. Nick was one of the most capable men that have ever been on the Choctaw floor, and he will he very much missed next winter. Thomas Bennett, Forward “Hoover” has been placed on the All-S. I. A. A. team by sports writers and coaches for the last two years, receiving an almost unanimous vote for the position this year, despite the fact that he played in only two games. “Hoover” was the coolest player on the floor, and very seldom blew up, even though we were far behind at times. He was a derid shot for the basket and his floor work was unequalled by any who played with or against him. Frank Branch, Foriuard Frank came to the front this year after having had a rather bad season last year. He seemed to have gotten over his operation more this season and showed lots of that form that won for him a place on the Mythical S. I. A. A. Five three years ago. Frank’s eye for the basket was an exceptionally good one and at times he was in such good form that he could not miss. Several times he scored as much as the rest of the team combined. Rodney Berry, Forward “Rod” was the fourth Senior to make his letter this season and he was the fourth, not because he was not so very good, but because he was smaller of stature than the others and couldn’t com- pete with them. He was fast on the floor and had an accurate eye for the basket. “Rod” was as good a man as we had on defense and a fast breaker on offense. James Taylor, Forward “Jimmie” was another of small stature, but that was not such a great handicap to him. He was fighting every minute that he was in the game and he made that fight count for something. He was good on defense and fast on offense. These qualities are the reason that he bore the brunt of the substitution at forward. “Jimmie” will be with us another season and great things are expected of him as he dons the Blue and Gold for the last time. 86

Basketball Men George Gill, Captain-elect “Monroe”, playing his second year on the varsity, showed that he was a valuable man at center. Although he was a light man for his height, he could fight as long and as hard as the rest of the men. He was a good jumper and was seldom out jumped. His hard, clean playing won for him the position of captain of the 1932 squad. George was fast on offense and often got dow T n under the opponent’s basket for an open shot. Many great things are expected of George next season. . Otto Reno, Guard Reno is one of the two Sophomores to make letters in basketball and it was well earned. He was a tower of strength under the goal. It was largely to his and “Stute” Allen’s work that no opponent got more than one shot at the goal. He was right there all the time and would take the ball off the backboard and throw ' it out with an ability that few T veterans can equal. Reno will be back two more years and he is expected to go from the second to the first AI 1 -S. I. A. A. team next season. , James Allen, Guard “Stute” is a long, lanky Sophomore, but he can deliver the goods. Though not as hardy as Reno, he made a good running mate for him. He was as good as we had on long shots and when he shot one it was pretty sure to hit the basket. He bore the brunt of the substitution at guard and worked like a veteran when he was used for Duncan during the season, and especially during the Tournament. He says no one is going to outdo him next year nor the next. Wilburn Furniss, Forward “Passo” was a consistent player and could be counted on to do his share of the work all the time. He was not only good at forward, but was a good guard. He was used at guard when necessity demanded it and showed that he was a good utility man. He was fast on offense and had a good eye for the basket. “Passo” was a cool player and a smooth floor man, contributing his part to the success of the team when he had the chance. He is another one of our Juniors and great things are expected of him next year. James McLendon, Manager “Jimmie” was a very efficient manager, keeping the boys in as good shape as possible and seeing that the equipment was in the best of shape. The success of no basketball team is ex- clusive of the part the manager plays, and so it has been with our team. He has the good wishes of all of us in handling the problems of life, and may he manage them as well as he has our team. S 7 I
