C. BASKETBALLERS With three seniors, six juniors and three sophomores to work with. Coach Lonnie McMillian started early in December to whip into condition a case team capable of holding its own in state competition, which every- one knew would be stiffer than usual. Working as assistant coach was Bill Lufler, tennis coach, and between the two of them, the Blue Hose appeared to really have something when the season actually got under way. Veterans on the team were the Griffin brothers, Dick Meisky, Paul MacMtllan, George Paul, J. C. Coleman and Keith Fleishman. The most serious handicap confronting the team was a lack of height and weight. To overcome those disadvantages, the Hose relied upon speed, and cleverness. The first game of the season was one of the most exciting of the year. The Blue Hose engaged the Citadel Bulldogs in Charleston In the season ' s opener. The game was a thriller from start to finish with the score changing several times and a desperate rally near the close of the game being necessary in order for the Blue Hose to win. Successive field goals by Paul and MacMillan did the trick and the Hoscmen were victorious by a 38 to 36 margin, and this they considered as a step in their revenge for the licking the Bulldogs pinned on them on the gridiron last fall.

The Citadel Bulldogs were again the victims of the Blue Hose when the two teams tangled on the floor of the Leroy Springs gymnasium. The game rocked along fairly smoothly until the closing minutes, when the lead was in the hands of one team one minute and in those of the other the next. The McMillian- men, sensing their danger, got busy and ran up four consecutive field goals to go ahead 40 to 30 and in the time remaining the Cadets could get but one field goal, and the Hosemen won 40 to 32. The season ' s final contest was with a team from Mexico City sponsored by the Mexico City y. M. C. A. This team was on a tour of the United States and the Blue Hose were fortunate in securing them as opponents as they presented one of the smoothest and most colorful teams yet to engage a Presbyterian aggregation. Thi- Blue Host- went ahead in the last few minutes to win 51 to 40.
