Belloise boxed six rounds at his

Taylor and Pat Byers.
TWO OTHER CAGERS likely to crack the first five for the Webfoots
are Bob Amaeher (above), another 6-foot, 8-ir.cher at forward, and
Guard Bob Lavey (below), a speed-burner who fits right in with
Coach John Warren’s fast-breaking offensive system.

Slated Next Week
Coach John Warren sent his varsity cagers through another
long' scrimmage session yesterday, as the date of the opening
1948-49 season game moved closer. Warren is worried that
Willamette University, the Ducks’ first opponent, will spring
another upset as they did last season. And Johnny Lewis, Bear
cat coach, has been working his squad hard in hopes of doing

certain, with more than five men
still in the race for opening berths.
Big Roger Wiley at center is the
only certain starter, the 6-foot, 8
inch letterman being one of the top
stars in workouts so far.
Probably joining Wiley on the
first five will be another letterman,
guard Bob Lavey. Lavey has also
been showing well, and will be the
boy to take over for Stan William
son in setting up the i?uck plays.
Paul Sowers, the blond transfer
from Vanport, is a good possibility
to see a lot of starting duty, and he
can play at either guard or forward.
Sowers is an excellent point-maker,
a good ball-handler, and one of the
fastest men on the team.
Letterman Bob Amacher and Ken
ny Seeborg might also break into
the opening quint, Amacher at for
ward and Seeborg at guard. Others
that could also start are forwards

The big guns for the losers were

Wiley on Boards
Wiley’s backboard work was a
deciding factor in the second tilt,
though Seeborg topped the scorers
with two buckets. Art Milne with
three points led the losing five.
Dale Warberg dropped in three
quick buckets to lead the “skins”
to a 12-6 win in the third tilt, and
looked good in grabbing rebounds.
Peterson’s three points were high
for the “shirts.”
Wiley was again high, scoring
four points in a 15-11 “skin” vic
tory. Lavey helped out with three
points and a good floor game. The
