Shorthorns Stomp
Fish Quintet, 49-30;
Allen N ext for Aggies
Monday, February 19, 19§1
Page 3
Batt Sports Staff
In a discouragingly one sided
game the Texas University fresh
man basketball quintet rolled over
the A&M fish cagers here Satur
day night, 49-30.
Texas received the opening tip
off and before the fish could set
up their defense Glen Moore, 6’ 2”
guard from Lockhart, parted the
net and drew first blood for Texas.
The game was three minutes old
before the fish could find a weak
ness in the Shorthorn defense. Pat
McCory pulled the trigger on one
from the free throw area and
brought the fish within one point of
the frosh, and shortly thereafter
Roy Martin, towering fish center,
cleared the hoop shoving the fish
into a one point lead.
Horns Stimulated
However, the short lead seem
ingly served only to stimulate the
Shorthorns into more rapid action.
Before the fish could attempt to
further their lead, TU came back
with a fast break and established
a margin which was to grow stead
ily in their favor throughout the
rest of the game. Half-time score
read Texas, 26, A&M 14.
The second half, like the first,
found the fish consistently far be
hind, never drawing closes than
seven points to the ever racing
frosh. During the closing minutes
Texas put on the stall, working an
effective freeze play which the
fish were unable to thaw. Fresh
man coach Don Binford’s junior
cagers were allowed to score only
two points during the final ten
minutes, while their recovering
only six rebounds in the entire
contest further blackened their
Montgomery Hustles
Playing his best game of the
year Vol Montgomery, 19 year old
engineering major from Abilene,
presented a fine display of defen
sive as well as offensive basketball.
Scoring six points in the contest,
Montgomery’s chief value appear
ed in his defense. High point man
for the fish was Don Dwyer with
12 points.
Greatest damage to the fish
came through 18 year old Short
horn center, Billy Powell. Powell,
scoring 19 points in the night’s
event, controlled the backboards to
keep Tgxas in continual possession
of the ball.
Individuality again showed its
ugly head as team play among the
Ag freshmen was non-existent. Bad
ball handling, coupled with poor
passing and defensive tactics,
brought to light the fact that the
fish still have not had the time
to practice consistently the plays
which at one time won them praise
as the best freshman team ever to
be sent forth by A&M.
The fish meet Allen Academy to
night in Bryan, while the SMU
Mustangs invade DeWare Field
House tomorrow night in a return
engagement with the varsity.

A&M-SMU Cage Tilt Gains
Importance; Ags Want Title
The Mustangs’ surprising vic
tory over the University of Texas
cagers causes the SMU-A&M game
in DeWare Field House Tuesday
night to take on added importance.
Until the SMU win Friday night
at Dallas, the Aggies looked like
the favorite on their home court
after seven days of rest and four
days of practice.
Now it looks more like a toss-up,
with the Mustangs possessing the
potential necessary to knock A&M
out of its tie for first with the
Longhorns and the Frogs.
Looked Easy
Aggie fans had pictured the SMU
and Rice game, scheduled Feb. 24,
as warm-ups for the final tilt
with Texas in Austin, but the
cadets must go all out now to stay
in the running for a share of the
SWC title.
After the long trip to Ai’kansas
and the Aggies’ disappointing 38-
45 loss to the Razorbacks in an
overtime, Coach John Floyd asked
that an intersectional game Feb. 17,
be postponed to give the A&M team
a breather.
The intersectional tilt between
the Aggies and the University of
Houston will be played March 2.
SMU Wins First
SMU was the only conference foe
that defeated the Aggies in the
first half of league play. Playing
Faculty Quintet
Humbles Tig er
‘B’ Team, 2718
In an affair strictly from
comic opera, the A&M Con
solidated faculty slaughtered
the Tiger B Team 27-18.
Principal L. E. Boze was
high man for the teachers with
eight points.
Officiating at the game were
G. E. Potter and Rev. Anderson,
of the Presbyterian church.
The match was highlighted by
the two teams variations in rules
in the number of players on the
floor at one time. Occasionally,
the two teams would use not only
basketball plays, but would also
revert to baseball and football
Flagrant use of fouls was made
by both sides throughout the tilt,
with each depending on the inex
perienced referees making mistakes
in calling them.
The faculty win was the surprise
of the night and the game provided
a pleasant prelude to the varsity
game with Thorndale, which the
Tiger varsity took 35-33.

on the Mustangs’ home court, the
Dallas quintet rode the accux-ate
shooting ai’nxs of centers Tom
Holm and Paul Mitchell to a 51-
44 victory.
A&M has a conference record of
six wins to three losses, while
SMU is right behind with five
wins to four defeats. A Mustang
victory would push A&M one rung
further down the ladder and into
a tie with SMU rather than Texas.
Three In Last Game
The game Tuesday night will be
final conference game for the Ag
gies at home and the last time that
thi - ee Aggies appear at home in
confei’ence competition. Forwards
John DeWitt and Marvin Martin
and center Glenn Williams are the
graduating seniors on the squad.
Probable starters for SMU Tues
day are forwards Derrell Murphy
and Jack Brown, center Tom Holm
and guai'ds Fi’ed Freeman and
Charlie Lutz.
The Aggies are expected to start
forwards DeWitt and Martin, cen
ter Walter Davis and guards Jew
ell McDowell and Raymond Walker.
Walker, 5-8 and shortest man
on the Aggie squad, has come
along fast for Coach Floyd and is
increasingly important as a defen
sive man. Walker failed to letter
last year and was just a substitute
for the first half of this season.

Deadlocked Again
The dizzy Southwest Confer
ence basketball race is almost back
where it stax-ted, with A&M, Texas
and Texas Christian tied for the
lead and a four-way tie for the
title possible.
Southern Methodist and Rice
combined last week to confuse the
standings again.
Southei’n Methodist knocked off
Texas, 54-41, after the Longhorns
had bowed to Texas Christian, 49-

The Owls led at the half and

Christian on the ropes.

into a tie for fourth with South

up 41 points in two games to
boost his season scoring to 296
points and replace Jack Brown of
Southern Methodist as the leader.
Brown tumbled to fourth, behind
Ralph Johnson of Baylor with 283
points and George McLeod of Tex
as Christian with 281. He has 274.
Johnson retained his lead in con
