Aggies Battle Oregon
In Weekend Series
Conley, Evans
Wage Personal
Cage Warfare
It will be sophomore against sen
ior this weekend when Gene Con
ley, Washington State College’s
sensational sophomore from Rich
land and leading scorer of the
Northern Division battles it out for
high point honors with Rich “Mr..
Points” Evans of Gonzaga in a two
game series Friday, February 24,
at Pullman and Saturday, February
25, in Spokane.
Conley as Northern Division scor
ing ace, has scored a total of 337
points to date during the 1949-50
hoop season. Evans, on the other
hand, is ranked as 19th in the na
tion with 398 points and 17.3 aver
age per game.
Evans, is finishing his hoop car
eer at Gonzaga University this sea
son in a blaze of glory. Every point
he scores in the WSC series will
break a scoring record at Gonzaga.
Evans has scored a total of 1418
points to date since starting his
hoop career in 1947.
Conley, as a sophomore, is just
starting his intercollegiate basket
ball career. Big Gene is the current
WSC scoring leader as well as the
top scoring ace in the Northern Di
All-American candidate Ed Gay

Back in the thick of the torrid
1950 northern division basketball
as a result of two convincing vic
tories over Idaho here this week,
Oregon State’s basketball team is
making all-out preparations for the
final two-game series with arch
rival Oregon next week.
The Beavers will entertain the
Webfoots next Friday evening in
the final game of the season in
mammoth new Gill coliseum. Sat
urday night the clubs will switch
operations to Oregon’s , McArthur
court for the series finale.
Reserved seats for Friday’s “civil
war” battle were sold out more than
a week ago, but several thousand
general admission tickets will go
on sale at the gates at 6:45 the night
of the game.
The Beavers played their best
ball in recent weeks in whipping
the dangerous Vandals, 48-44 and
60-46. Coach Slats Gill was particu
larly pleased with the work of Bob
Payne, who scored 26 in the two
games; and Guards Tommy Hol
man and Jack Orr, with 19 and 21
points for the series, respectively.
Remainder of the combination that
worked well gainst the Vandals had
Glen Kinney at center; and Ray
Snyder in the other worwai'd slot.
Gill’s men now sport a record of
seven wins and five losses in league
play. After the Oregon series, the
Orange travel to Seattle for their
final regular games against title
contending Washington on March 3
and 4. That series could possibly
decide the championship.
Oregon State posted the amazing
ly high shooting average of .460 on
23 field goals in 50 shots in the sec
ond Vandal contest. If the Beavers
can keep on their shooting caps,
they will be tough to beat the rest
of the route.
