Frosh Smother Lebanon; Cougars Claw Webfoots
By BOB FLVVELLE, Co-Sports Editor
Big Paul Lindeman, Cougar center and a likeable guy if
there ever was one, is apparently a firm believer that exercise
off the basketball court is unhealthy. At least the stories his
teammates tell about him indicate that he never stands when
eh can sit down, and never sits down when he can lie down...
to him, walking is a silly form of physical exercise that will
bring good to no man.
♦ Lindeman Would Rather Ride
From “Sundy” Sundquist, the light-hearted sharp-shooting
guard on Jack Friel's Washington State quintet, comes the story
that when the team arrived at the Eugene station, everyone
picked up their bags and started hiking the five blocks to their
quarters at the Osburn hotel—that is everyone but Lindeman
hiked. No form of persuasion could make the huge boy budge,
lie just sat right where he was and waited patiently for a taxi to
show up, and rode in state to his destination, protesting all the
way that it was about time taxis were built so a person could lie
down while making such a tiring journey.
Although Friel is in constant fear that Lindeman will be
left behind in some soft easy chair, he never has to worry
about his center’s whereabouts once the hotel is reached.
While the other Cougar players are out looking the town
over or taking in a show, Lindeman can always be found in
* his room—in bed—relaxing so he won’t get tired.
Washington State players have great respect for the Oregon
State Beavers, to whom they lost two heart-breakers at Corvallis,
but the concensus of opinion is that last year's Northern division
champions from Beavcrvillc were superior to the present Oregon
State quintet. They argue that the gaps left by the graduation
of Tony Romano and Frank Mandic are too great for Clayton
Shaw and Jack Mulder, to fill. Shaw is respected for bis close
checking and keen-eyed long shooting but lacks the steadiness
and height of Mandic, according to the Cougar basketballers.
Between Webfoots and Beavers
The teams to beat this season are Oregon State and Oregon—
it will be a dogfight between those two squads for the 1941 cham
pionship. The Washington Staters didn't say that outright but
by listening between the lines of their conversation it was easy
to see that they didn’t consider Idaho or Washington great
threats. Of course there is a slight possibility that they might
consider a certain team from Pullman a title threat, despite the
fact that they dropped their first two games.
The Washington State squad this year is truly a closed or
ganization. Every member is a product of a Washington
^ high school. There isn't a player on the squad that doesn’t
call the Northwest state his home. Incidentally, Oregon isn’t
far behind the Cougars in this respect. Vic Townsend, Joe
Triano, and Porky Andrews are the only “furriners” on the

Wins In Opener
Berrypickers Beaten 43-15 by 1941
Ducklings; Walt Kresse Tops All Scorers
With Nine Points; Game Was Ragged
By LEE FLATBERG
The yearling hoopmen ran, stumbled, and fumbled around and
about a smaller Lebanon five Friday afternoon to hang up their
first victory of the season, 43 to 15. The frosh passed badly, and
muffed rebounds, but made up for their numerous errors by a
basket barrage that assured them of a win after the first few min
utes of play.
The Ducklings opened their scoring fast when Rog Dick
dropped a shot in the first few seconds of play, followed by
two quick ones by Bill Gissberg.
Lloycl Jackson added one more be
fore Simpsen, Lebanon forward,
countered with a foul, pitch. The
Ducklings added three quick bas
kets to gain a 13 to 1 lead, a lead
which they never relinquished. The
score at half time was 23 to 7.
Kresse Was High
Walt Kresse. diminutive frosh
guard came out of the fray with
scoring honors, caging four shots
from the floor and a foul shot to
amass nine points. Bob Sheridan
rang up three baskets and - two
foul shots for eight counters to
tie with Jackson, who dumped in
four baskets from the floor, for
runner-up scoring honors.
Bill Gissberg, guard from Ev
erett, Washington turned in a
nice floor game and rang up
With a tight man-to-man de
fense and Sheridan and Jackson
ruling the backboards the frosh
held the Berrypickers from Leb
anon to three field goals each half.
Mad Scoring Kush
The second half started in a mad
scramble out of which the Ore
gon “Little Firs” evolved with
eight points before Lebanon could
counter. Continuing their drive,
the yearlings struck with five field
goals while holding the hapless
Lebanon five to two successful
shots to finish the game in a blaze

Dallas high school team Saturday

Washington Stato had the host
individual average — five field
goals in 12 attempts, followed

Boreher was one of the most
effective men on the floor for his

Lindemann drew first blood tor
the Cougars with a free throw- at
tempt. Then Oregon stepped into
the lead and held it until I t min
utes had gone by in the first half.
Anderson and Townsend did the
trick with field goals and free
throws. So well were the Cougars
held down that, they failed to score
a field goal until nine and a half
minutes had passed.
After 14 minutes, Lindemann
began to pull Duck tailfeathers.
He scored on a pass from Owen
Hunt. Townsend made a free
shot and the score was i) to (i lor
Oregon. Then Lindemann boost
ed the Cougar score with a rush.
Three times he tallied for six
points without interruption.
Borcher entered the game and
broke up Lindemann’s fun. War
ren Taylor and Anderson came
through for Oregon. Then Kirk
Gebert tied it up at the half,
14 to 14.
Butts started the Cougar snarl
in the second period. The Cougars
challenged and Oregon was unable
to do anything about it. Oregon
tied the score at 16 to 16 and then
fell into the backwash of the Cou
gar attack. Butts, Lindemann, and
Gebert carried the brunt of the
scoring spree during the second
period. Oregon would climb to
within four or six points of the
Washington Staters and then fall
behind again when Butts and com
pany started to roll again.
