Sebeck, SMU Ace, Held To One Point by Mike Cokinos Henderson and Bayer Lead Cadet Attack With 12 Points; Tomlinson Acounts for 17 By Mike Haikin Battalion Sports Editor Grabbing a lead at the outset of the tilt, the Texas Aggies kept in front all the way as they crush ed a hapless S.M.U. Mustang five 47-29, at the DeWare Field House. R. B. Bayer and Bill Hender son led the Cadet attack with 12 points apiece, but it was the work of scrapping Mike Cokinos that turned the trick and won the first home game of the year .for the hustling Cadets. His defensive work in holding the Mustangs’ ace Johnny Sebeck to one free throw had much to do in offsetting the S. M.U. scoring power. Tomlinson Leads Scorers While the Aggies were giving all their time to Sebeck, Tom Tom linson took the opportunity to make him some points as he hit the meshes for 17 points to take down top scoring honors for the night. Fifteen of those came in the first half, when he personally ac counted for 15 of the 17 Mustang points. Tonight, the Aggies will tan gle with Coach Hub McQuillan’s T. C.U. Horned Frogs, who are securely lodged in third place in the conference standings. Game time will be 8:30. Henderson and Tomlinson each accounted for a field goal and a free throw as the game was but a few minutes old. Cokinos and Jarrett added field goals before Tomlinson hit the meshes for an other two points. Then the Aggies really broke loose. Bayer and Hen derson hit two field goals and Na bors and Jarrett hit one apiece to stretch the Aggie lead to 16-5. Tomlinson hit the hoop for two more field goals and Baccus add ed a free throw to\ close the gap, but goals by Henderson and Nabors finally brought the half-time score at 24-17 in favor of the Cadets. Aggies Stretch Lead Welch and Harris hit for two points apiece as the half opened to cut the Aggie lead to three points. However, field goals by Bayer, Huffman, Cokinos, and an other by Bayer and a couple by Jarrett eased the pressure some what, and from there on the Ag gies were not even mildly threaten ed. The game itself was a wild af fair, with both teams missing in numerable amount of shots, but Coach Marty Karow’s Aggies just outclassed the S. M. U. Ponies with their ball handling and under the basket playing. Twenty-six University of Texas students, all 6 feet 3 or taller, have formed a club whose only qualification is height.
