Yankee By BARRY HART “Go West young, man, go West” the old saying goes, and evidently it made quite an impression on A&M’s Bill Brophy. Bill, a senior, came 1800 miles from Pennsylvania to Texas to play his first schoolboy basketball and there’s not an Aggie anywhere who’s sorry this Yankee migrated. “Brophy is terrific—just terrific,” said Coach Ken Loef- fler of his number one scorer. “He gets better in every game.” Leading the Aggies in scoring on the season with 228 points, good enough for ninth place in the Southwest Con ference, Brophy didn’t play high school basketball in his hometown of Haverstown, Pa. ,,FADING AGGIE SCORER is Bill Brophy, 6-3 senior from ■ laverstown, Pa. Bill is ninth among Southwest Conference foint makers over the season with 228 points. DYERS'FUR. STORAGE HATTERS DIAL TA 2-1585 ^ Students . . .

They convinced him to come to Texas and try for the team. Bill came, made the squad and has been here ever since. Lack of high school experience didn’t hurt the 6-3 Brophy.

The following season Bill led Allen’s Junior College slone in scoring, was third in conference play and captured all-state honors both years. Brophy made the switch to SWC cage play handily and was one of the bright spots in last year’s sea son as he led A&M in scoring, with 336 points, in rebounds, with 186, and in points-per-game with 14.0. Bill considers the 1954 contest with LSU and this season’s game against TCU as his greatest per sonal thrills on the hardwood. Bill garnered 28 points, 22 in the sec ond half, in A&M’s 61-73 loss to the Tigers, and,- although he scored only 13 against the Horned Toads as the Aggies took a 84-74 vie tory, he enjoyed that one the most because “They had beaten us three times last year and I sure wanted to get them once.” A married man. Bill is equally proficient on defense and is second in rebounds for A&M with 114. He plays the key middle spot in Loeffler’s give-and-go type of of fense and handles the ball more than any other player.
