Whitman came to Seattle to play in the first of a home-and- home series, and went their way on the short end of a 27-25 score, but they gave Washing- ton a mighty battle.

ASKETBALL Bv Dick Macfarlanh " Hec " Edmundson FROM a mediocre start to the championship of the Northern division of the Coast Con- ference, was the climb of the Washington basketball team this year. When the season started, the Huskies were more or less of a puzzle to the dopesters. but with seven lettermcn back. Coach Clarence Edmundson set about building a team. Monty Snider. Alfie James. John Dalquest. Perry Hack. Bob Brobst. Hall Johnson and Tony Gritsch were the letter-win- ners who made up the nucleus of the squad. Several players who had been second-rate men the season before developed into capable baskcteers. and two of them forced their way onto the first five. Percy Bolstad. after playing erratic ball all last year and part of this year, consequently dividing the forward post opposite Monty Snider with Bob Brobst. for part of the season, settled down and played the game of his career. John Dalquest was shifted from guard to fill the hole left by the graduation of Earl Jewell, and Milt Berenson. a former center, stepped into the hole left by the shifting of Dalquest to center, and played guard opposite Alfie James. Perry Hack, a former center, was shifted to guard and played whenever one of the regulars was out of the game. Tony Gritsch also played a relief role at the guard post. Bob Brobst was the first string substitute at for- ward, but Stan Jaloff came into several games, and played good ball. Harold McClary. who stacks up six feet, si.v inches, was the substitute center, and has developed into a good player under the tutelage of Hec Ed- mundson. Nine Conference tilts were won by the squad in the regular season, and one lost. The championship was cinched in the next to the last game, when Washington beat Oregon State, and the one game that was lost came after the cinching of the title, and did not affect the Huskies ' standing. Twelve practice games were played before the start of the season, and in all but two of these the Huskies were victors. Queen Anne Athletic Club furnished the competition in three of the games, being set back by the scores of 31-24, 45-21. and 56-28. The Y. M. C. A. quintet lost a game. 61- 11. the Union Oil five dropped another. 49-18, then the University of British Columbia fell. 45-23. Three practice tilts were scheduled with the powerful University of Illinois five, which traveled out to Seattle to dedicate the new Athletic Pavilion. December 27. 29. and 30. Record crowds saw the trio of games, in which the Huskies won two out of three. Monty Snider ran up fifteen points in the initial tilt, and Washington won. 34-23. A re- versal of form on the part of both teams in the Chad Knowles [l-tS]

Snider. Jumes. Datquesl James. Percy Bolstad and Milt Berenson were placed on most second selections. No captain was named for the 1928 or 1929 squad, as the responsibility of the captaincy detracts from the leader ' s playing, according to Hec Ed- mundson. Fmeshman Basketball " The best Freshman basketball team I ever had at Washington. ' is what Coach Tubby Graves labeled his 1928 yearling quintet at the close of the current season. Graves ' boys took part in both the Interscholas- tic League and the City League. The Frosh fin- ished the season with the most impressive playing record in their class in the Northwest, winning ten games and losing none to the aggregations in the Interscholastic League. They finished fifth in the other circuit. The men who earned their numerals were: Ter- williger, Willard. White. Peters. Langlie, Town- san, Rutherford. Danenbauer. Swanson. Galbraith, Neff , Collins. Wentworth. Schwegler. Barberis and Perry. Bcobst. Berenson. Bolstad
