STANDING: Mr. Olsson. Lipscomb. Mack, Tripp. Brownlie. Sweeney. Zeigler. KNEELING: O ' Neil. Frost. Hardison. Tomlinson. Roach, Tucker. Neophytes Gain Experience THE OWLETS, the second team under the direction of Coach E. S. Olsson, this year gained the needed experience that will help build a strong hardwood varsity next season. The Owlets furnished the fans with many thrills in the preliminaries, which in some cases were such hard fought events that they matched the varsity games. In addition to playing the opener in every basketball game of the season, the junior team scrimmaged with the first team two or three nights a week after practice. Outstanding members of the team were Brownlie, center; Roach, forward; Hardi- son, forward; Tomlinson, guard; Mack, guard. These boys usually made up the starting five, but as a rule the whole team had a chance to play with regular sub- stitutions being made throughout the game. McNeil goes up for a rebound in scrimmage session. (33)
