i045 VARSlTY BASKETBALL Keller Abney Stone Richards BOWGI1 Beck l-lorton Hatch O'Neal Christensen Sparked by Captain lack Stone, sensational pivot man, and Glen Abney, stellar guard, University's i945 basketball quintet was a polished, high-scor- ing aggregation as they blazed through eleven out of twelve league frays easily to annex the Western League gonfalon. The high-flying Warrior hoop- men dropped only one skirmish to the vaunted L.A. Romans. Playing a freeze- ball game, for the sole purpose of keeping the score down, the Roman five sorely outwitted the amazed local squad as they kept possession of the ball during the majority of the game to eke out a 24-23 win over the spirit-lack- ing Redskins, Benny Lewis, sensational sophomore monogrammer in '42, achieved All-League honors in '43 and '44 with a first string All-City berth, Also in '44, lac-k Stone, the gigantic bulwark of the '45 squad, held the honor of being the first tenth grader to win a first-string All-League berth. l-le fol- lowed this up by manning the same Western League pivot post for three suc- cessive years. Stone, who also received All-City honors in '44 and '45-first- string in 745-was truly the greatest natural athlete ever to attend Univer- sity and will always be remembered for his remarkable basketball career, Along with Stone on the '45 Warrior powerhouse was C-len Abney, towering southpaw hook-shot artist. Abney merited a third-string All-City berth as guard, along with his All-League honors. Bob Keller, spark-plug forward, Bob Richards, defensive mainstay, and lanky, deadeye Dick Bowen completed the first string. The Western League Champs were backed by host of able substitutes: Bruce Christensen, Tom l-lorton, Rodney l-latch, Fred Beck, lerry O'Neal, Chuck Colwell, Bob Wolfe, and capable manager Dave Blanchard. Winning the first Basketball Championship, the stellar local squad set a high mark for future University melonmen to aim at by setting a record for the number of Western League wins in taking the championship. 48 ' basket

This resulted in one more easy victory for the La Brucherie-coached lads, After this slaughter the Warriors bounced back to defeat Hollywood 25-6 and Venice 3l-6. Then came the real heart-breaker. An underdog Fairfax Co- lonial team came through to halt the Warriors in a 6-6 dead- lock. The University Bee eleven, like the Varsity, had a good deal as , A . .si of early-season bad luck, losing to Hamilton, Dorsey, Los An- geles, and Hollywood.
