Large chestfuls of fury pent-up in the collective bosoms of
John Warren's Webfoots came bolting out over the past week
end, and it just happened to be Idaho's fortune, or lack of it, to
get trapped in the avalanche.
All of which is by way of saying that the Ducks played them
selves a smattering of basketball on Friday and Saturday last,
and in so doing, nestled themselves in second place in Northern
Division standings. That’s a
spritely jump they made, from
the bottom of the ND pits up in
to the classy company of Wash
How this was all brought
about is quite a puzzler. Un
questionably, the Vandals are
not the most pathetic group of
misfits ever to show in these
woodlands. Certainly there
iflttHh.liti I HmAtohdA—r,..inr r II ..Hmm
have been others who would more suitably answer to that de
scription, although with equal certainty one is led to believe that
the Vandals made a gallant effort in that not so gallant direction.
No, this Idaho bunch wouldn’t give the old Celtics any fear
ful moments, but a couple of kids by the name of Pres Brimhall
and Bob Pritchett did themselves up proud. The Webfoots
weren't pushing over any push overs.
Home Crowd Plus Right Combo Netted Wins
Probably of more significance to the Ducks' double sweep
was the fact that the boys got hepped up because of the friendly
surrounding and because Warren fielded five boys knew their
respective ways around the court.
Too, these five, Rog Wiley, Paul Sowers, John Neeley, Will
Urban, and Jim Bartelt, showed something on Saturday which
was particularly encouraging. When, with the final minutes tick
ing away, the score was see-sawing back and forth, and the pres
sure was really on, these five refused to freeze. They went right
to work and salted away the victory. All except Wiley and Bar
telt are pretty green as basketball players go, but they delivered
•in the clutch. This, commented Warren, is why he was more
gratified by Saturday’s performance than Friday’s.
Actually, however, Warren claims this was not the Ducks’
best showing of the season. “We were sharper on our Northern
trip wdien we played British Columbia, and also when we barely
lost to Stanford in the Cow Palace,”
Series With Huskies to Be Turning Point
In any event, the Ducks have made progress, though just
liow much won’t be determined until this weekend when they
Despite the hamstringing applied to the Huskies the past
weekend by Washington State, Warren is still quaking at the
thought that he will have to send his crew against Sammy
White, if that talented individual is ready.
Without him the Huskies are really not husky at all.
Insofar as the Northern Division is concerned, Warren fig
ures Oregon State is the team his charges will have to beat.
Washington State, which banks on a fire proof defense, is over
rated, and just happened to catch Washington in a dark mood.
Which is to say it was Whiteless.
“White, affirmed Honest John, “is everything they say about
him. He, Wiley, Cliff Crandall and Ed Gayda are the top four
players in the division.”
As an added note, the return to the fold of Bob Atnacher yes
terday gives the Lemon-and-Green some added depth. Amacher,
it will be recalled, did a disappearing act during the Ducks’ stay
in the Southland. He left in a huff then, but all has been straight
First String Set—For Now
The addition of Amacher will help, but he will have to pick
up quite a bit in order to crack that first five. Warren has found
a combination that clicks, and it is as certain as death, bills and
taxes that it won’t be dismantled soon.
This Oregon outfit has traded baskets with some pretty for
midable foes this season, and has accounted for its share of de
feats.But things went on an upswing last weekend, and if the
Great Gods continue to charm the Ducks, then the latter can go
into the final stages of the race on easy sledding. And this is the
same race that the Ducks began in rather wobbly fashion.
Did some one sav something about “all is well that ends
well.” Well, we think we will just sidle up to the stove, prop our
fee thereon, and wait and see.
