Transcript PAGE FOUR THE COUGAR OUR SPORTING WORLD BY RIP HARRISON Sports Editor of The Cougar THE FIVE Art impression taken Monday night before the Cougars played the Houston Ice Cream Five. Lee Stone took thirty minutes trying to learn the free throw play. SCRUBS ORGANIZED Not to be outdone by their failure to make the varsity squad, a group of students have organized a scrub team by the name of Dazes, which they hope to add to the athletic prowess of H. J. C. So far the Dazes have made rather promising showing, having won two out of three games and losing the final game after a hectic double overtime period. In a short time the scrubmen will be attired in fitting uniforms of green, The Dazes are able to put two capable quintets on the floor at a moment' notice with such players reporting regularly as James Julian, Richard Marshall, "Moose" Gonzales, Cy Shaw, Richard MacFee, L. B. Manry, V. F. Harrison, Leon Green, Meyer Lurie, Harold Renfro, Edgar Nirken, and George Snider. I BOXING TOURNAMENT With interest mounting for the proposed boxing tournament, it looks Uke Junior College will be the scene of some classy amateur boxing bouts to take place soon. According to Coach French, who is taking charge, the bouts will get under way as soon as the basketball schedule is worked out. Along with boxing, several wrestling matches may be worked up to make the beef and brawn tournament a bigger success. The matches will be of a short duration, which will force the contestants to speed it up and give the fans lots of scrappy action. Those attending this meet will get lots of excitement as none of the entrants will have much fancy style but will rely on speed and power to win for them. TEN CENTS IN THE HOLE It doesn't always pay to bet, even if you're sure. Take the case of Bob Brahnam, star pivot man for the Cougar cagers. Bob bet a lowly scrub that he could sink more shots than the scrub and offered to bet five cents a shot. The scrub took him up on the bet and a little later Bob walked away ten cents in the hole. And he still owes the ten centavos. W. PETERSON PROMOTED This paragraph could be titled "The Scrub Who Made Good", at least it marks an advancement to Walter Peterson, former star forward G. GAYLE & M. PECH Two players who are due to make a name for themselves in the Cougar basketball annals and have shown up well in the games so far are Malcolm "Pecker" Pech and George "Phenix" Gayle. Neither are the sensational type of player but resort to the hustling and team-working type of basketball that is essential to a finished basketball performer. Gayle holds down one of the guard positions in spite of his lack of height and likes to mix it up under the basket. Altho not an exceptionally clever floor man, Gayle can take care of himself and boasts a strong wing that insures good passing. "Phenix" lettered with Sam Houston last season and previous to that played on the First Methodist aggregation. Our other luminary, Malcolm Pech, plays either the forward or the running guard position. Pech is the fast and deceptive kind of man who handles the ball well and makes a first class floor man. Pech typifies the fighting type of player by his continual breakneck speed playing. Playing with several strong church outfits and a pas member of the San Jacinto squad, has given Pech plenty of experience that has stood him in good stead. BASEBALL ^M With spring just around the corner and the public graduafty-|flting baseball-minded, students at Junior College should start the old bean to thinking and planning for_a H. J. C. baseball team. If anything is to be done, is the time to get started, for a world of red' tape and preparations must be gone through before there will be any results. This article ap- plys to the boys, so unless you are i ordinary, red-blooded, American boy, don't stop to waste your time on this but go get a copy of Mother Goose We have a basketball team; a good le. We're going to have a track team; and it will be good. We had NO football team so lets replace football with baseball. Many of the freshman who enrolled in September played high school and commercial teams. The nine could practice from school time till dark and plenty [petition could be arranged with tht many high schools and industrial Jamesjulian Wins A. A.U. Match SINGLE POINT IN OVERTIME PERIOD BEATS COUGARS Coupling a fast breaking offensive with a strong defense, the Humble cage team nosed out a fighting pack of Junior College Cougars, 17-16, a hard fought game at San Jacinto gym. ^^^ It was a tossup from the start, and only by airtight guarding did Humble cagers turn back the first class passing attack of the college boys. The oilmen played brilliantly all the way to subdue the fast Junior College aggregation, taking advantage of every opportunity to sneak in for a crip shot, and dazzling the college bunch with a speedy offensive that clicked with steady precision. There was no denying Bob Branham classy Cougar center, who paced the leading scorers with 10 points. Brah- nams clever passing under the goal and his outstanding floor work featured the closely drawn battle. Gayle, Pech, and Matthews were the other big guns for the college attack. Butler, Runion, and Jones starred for the Oilers with Butler chalking up markers to lead his mates. The Humble team boasts one ot_ the leading cage outfits in the city and by holding the Oilmen to a one point win, the Cougars increased their standing ten-fold. Coach French's charges showed a vast improvement over the last encounter with the Humble team, which won rather handily in "the first fray. T^ieir ability to check back in a tight defense was a leading factor in hold- ing the Humble bunch down. Dazes cage outfit, who gained the eye league teams. It wouldn't hurt the of French and was "promoted to the school to break loose and buy a little varsity squad. In his three games with baseball equipment' even if they set the Dazes, Peterson was high point, aside only a small fund. Those that are interested talk this up and if we decide to put this thing through lets all get behind it and show a little enthusiasm ancTmterest. man; scoring 12 points against De Molays, 10 markers in the Second Pres. B. team melee, and 6 points against the Methodist B team. During his high school days, Walter lettered with Giddings Hi. And last season was a member of the strong Norhill Methodist team. » BELIEVE IT OR NOT Ripley is missing out on something by not keeping up with the Junior College scrub team. In their first three games the Dazes either won or lost their game by one point, and each encounter was climaxed by a necessary overtime period; in one case two extra sessions were necessary. Louise Morgan Leads Sophs To Win Over Slime Sextet Running up a score of 28-19, the Sophomore girls team defeated the Freshman female sextet in the third game of the inter-class girls basketball schedule. Louise Morgan, sophomore forward, hit the basket with regularity to take scoring honors for the night. Sinking practically all her attempts and fight- EXTRA PERIOD RALLY BEATS GAME DAZES A rousing extra period rally that featured Porter and Lusk, sharpshoot- ing forwards, carried the First Methodist B team to a thrilling 19-18 victory over Junior College Dazes at the school gym. Methodist B teamsters jumped to a commanding lead early in the game but could not hold back the college boys in the final periods. With Richard Marshall and L. B. Manry getting hot under the basket, Junior College soon whittled down the Methodists early lead and the two teams battled on even terms through the remaining time. After holding a 10-9 lead at the half, the church boys started on a second scoring party but were stopped after a short attack that netted two field goals. Aside from this practically no goals were registered for either team, with both sides being content to fall back in a slow breaking offense. As time drew near for tho final whistle, both teams cut loose but the Dazes were not to be shut out so easy and tied the game 17-17. The first overtime period saw both aggregations go at a killing pace but neither managed to rope the basket due to the sterling guarding of both sides. In the final extra period, Leon Lusk sunk a long shot after the Dazes had made a gratis shot and iced the game for First Methodist. Line-ups: Dazes, Nirken and Green; forwards, Renfro and Julian; guards, Shaw, center. Methodist, Lusk and Porter, forwards, Tally and Brock; guards, Hubly, center. H. J. C. STUDENT GAINS DECISION IN AMATEUR BOUT AT AUDITORIUM Slugs Tough Goose Creek Opponent Around Ring With Fast Right James Julian, 147 pound leather pusher from East End, took a decision over Joe Shelby, Goose Creek slugger, in the final match of the amateur ring bouts staged by Gulf association of the A. A. U. Thursday night at City Auditorium. Shelby, scaling 144 pounds, and built solid as a rock, took plenty of punishment from the dangerous right that Julian used as his heavy artillery. Julian forced the fight from the outset and was never in danger of losing, although Shelby took his hardest blows and continued to wade in. Only once was the stocky Shelby knocked down and then it was from Julian's murderous right. Ably seconded by "Wildcat" Ewing, well known Houston battler of the past few years, Julian was wary and careful and did not offer any chances for his opponent to sneak through his guard. In fact, he kept covered so well that few of Shelby's blows had any punishing effect. Ability to take it and take plenty kept the out-of- town lad from going dowin under the assault. James Julian is a sophomore student at the Houston Junior College. He figures prominently in Junior College sports, being a member of the scrub basketball team and a leading! figure in the proposed boxing tourna- | fl/<rnry and PeteVBOtl StOT ment to take place in the near future. Julian entered the match as an independent under the able eye of "Wild- ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ cat" Ewing, and his bout with Shelby' Coming up from behind in the clos- climaxed the group of fights. From! ing minutes of play, the H. J- C. Dazes the applause of the crowd when his' took a hard fought contest from the COUGARS ROMP TO TOP HEAVY WIN ALBATROSS GAME A fast breaking attack starring Allen Weed and Bob Brahnam, and accurate passing under the basket featured the Junior College Cougars lopsided win of 28-6 over the Albatross club at the school gym. Time after time the college boys took the tip-off and went down the floor for a score. Their attack broke fast, their passing was accurate and they were particularly effective11 under the basket. From the outset the Cougars took the lead and continued to widen the breach as the game continued. Altho closely guarded Weed got right on his crip shots and took high point honors for the night with ten markers. Branham and Matthews were the other - hot shots for the Cougar attack. Previous to the other game the fast breaking offensive taught by Coach French had not functioned with the smoothness and precision that it should have, but last nites exhibition leave no doubt as to the ability of French's charges. The Albatross Club comes from a fast commercial league and was not up to par in their performance. The failure to check back fast once the Cougars got possession of the ball spelled defeat for the club cagers. For Dazes in Close Game Second Presbyterian B team by score of 29-28. The close score was the result of a spirited scoring attack launched by the Dazes in a heated overtime period, after letting the churchmen grab the lead. With Nesmith, former Junior College student, and Shepherd, crack _ Pres. forward, getting hot, the Second Open Season With Win J Pres. gang took a commanding lead and had the scrubs running around in hand was raised as the victor, evident that Julian is one of the most popular amateur weterweighte in the city. With a few more wins under his belt, Julian will fall heir to a gold medal to be presented by the A. A. U. Junior College Scrubs good defensive game, Morgan looked like a million dollars and was le main part of the Sophs attack. Line ups as follows: Freshmen Sophomores Patrick _ Morgan Parks Forward . McVickei A fighting, smooth-working H. J. C. scrub team opened their 1932 cage season with a close 21-20 victory over the strong Houston De Molay quintet _ hectic overtime tilt, held at the school gym. Boasting a number of former high school stars, the De Molay bunch took the floor as favorites by a wide margin and got off to a fast start. Until the second quarter it looked bad for the Dazes, but by that time clever floor- work, featuring Peterson and Manry, helped to even the score. As the half time drew near, the Dazes went on a scoring spree to take the lead 14-11. Both teams tightened up during the third period and as a result little » ing was done. The score at the end of the third period being 17-14 favor of the Scrubs. In the fourth period both teams maintained a furious pace and as the end drew nea: the clubmen started getting right and evened the score 18-18 with some long shots. In the extra session both teams were tired and relied on long shots with fast follow-ups to account for points. A long shot apiece tied the score at 20-20, and a free throw gave the Dazes the winning margin. Britton, De Molay center, was the big shot for the visitors, while Johnson and Delambre starred along with him. Marshall, rangy Scrub, turned in some good work at the pivot post and continually took the ball off the backboard. Cougars Beat Gassers Cutting loose with a fast breaking passing attack that reached rare form, Junior college Cougars trounced a battling United Gas aggregation by the lopsided score of 33-6 at the school gym, Friday night. With Harry Matthews and Bob rcles. Shepherd repeatedly hit the basket for long shots that gave his team a 9-0 lead at the end of the first period. After a few substitutions Coach Dai ley's charges Halted the scoring attempts of the Pres. bunch and started a little scoring party of themselves, and held a 12-10 lead at the half. Walter Peterson and L. B. Manry grabbed the spotlight during the last half and managed to hold the church boys attack down and do a little scoring themselves. Jack McGeath, star Pres. forward, took it onto himself during the final period to win for his outfit and by some speedy floor work tied the score 26-26 at the close of the game. In the overtime period, both groups started at a furious "pace and the Dazes one point was the result of a free throw in the early part of the extra session. Brahnam at the helm, Coach Archie French's charges worked the ball down the floor time after time to score against the gasmen. Grabbing the spotlight along with the passing offensive attack was the defense used by the Cougars. Not once during the entire tilt did United Gas quintet ring the basket for a Beld goal; the six points being made on gratis shots. Playing by far his best game of the season, Harry Matthews got light and went on a scoring party of his own by piling up 12 points to take high scoring honors. Along with Matthews, Brahnam, Weed, and Scarborough looked good on the fast break French's team used and the Pech-Gaylc defense unit was airtight. French used every man on the entire squad durng the fray and may well be pleased with the team's showing. During the third period the college boys got going as a fast clip and registered the majority of their points.
