BASKETBALL The deadpan gallery at the bench during a hectic play at Coach josh Cody is second from the right. The 1945-1946 basketball team was one of the best college fives in the country, but Temple f were disappointed at the record of twelve victories and eight losses. Tutored for the fifth year by Josh Cody, the Owls met all top-flight opposition, and toppled some of the nation ' s outstanding teams including Kentucky, West Virginia, Muhlenberg, and St. John ' s, but the back-breaking schedule took its toll. Favored from the outset of the season to reach the National Tourneys at Madison Square Garden in March, the Owls faltered when the chips were down. However, they had the satisfaction of knowing that several teams they trounced were invited to the Tourneys. Two members of the team, Jack Hewson and Jimmy Joyce, were selected on the all-Philadelphia college five. Joyce was the only player from this area to be invited to play in the East-West all-star basketball game. Hewson was high scorer for the second straight year, collecting 237 points in the twenty games. The season was filled with upsets, and too often the Owls were the victims. The team was beaten by mediocre quintets, but turned the tables on the good teams, and were labelled " the hot and cold ball club " by many sports writers. Notable events during the season included the return of the same varsity line-up that played the previous season. That first-string line-up was Bill Budd and Jimmy Joyce at forwards, Jerry Rullo and Dave Fox at guards, and Jack Hewson at center. In the fourth game of the season, Freshman Eddie Lerner broke into the starting line-up and stayed there, thanks to his record production of twenty-four points on twelve field games later, Hewson scored thirty-two points, setting four new Temple records. One of them was fourteen out of fifteen foul tries. 204

Ray Wertis is surprised that Kosta can dribble. In February, three new men joined the squad after discharges from the Army, and Cody -was able to inaugurate a two-team system. He played Joyce with 27-year-old Max Wharton, Bill Bechtloff, Jack and Alex Kosta. For added depth he had Norman Rosen, Rod Reardon, and Bob Pfeilsticker.
