As Oregon goes into the 1951 Northern Division basketball
race this weekend in Seattle, a crucial question comes again to
the fore of Oregon sports thinking.
One question is, of course, “how will the Ducks do in the ND
this season?” But that’s a question every year, and with every
team in every league or conference. The real question is found in
an issue of the Eugene Register-Guard dated Feb. 28, 1950. On
page 10A, in a column called “Highclimber” and written by R-G
Sports Editor Dick Strite, is this note (directly quoted here) :
“John A. Warren, en route to Palm Springs and a much
needed rest, has announced that he plans to remain as com
mander-in-chief of University of Oregon varsity basketball
when the 1950-51 season gets underway . . . Warren . . . was
surprised when we rather bluntly asked him whether or not
he planned to return, and said that he planned to be back next
season, ‘if they’ll have me. I’d like to see what I can do with
next year’s squad. If I don’t finish among the first three, or
the first two, I’ll talk about retiring,’ Warren said.”
That’s the question as Oregon goes into its 1951 ND season.
Since that time, of course, Warren has taken on some other ma
terial, in the nature of transfer material, such as Jim Loscutoff.
A New Year's toast might be: Good luck Oregon Ducks; good
lt$fk John Warren.
A Precedent of Sorts
Last Dec. 2, the Webfoots won their first game on an oppon
ents' floor in something like two years. It was the 66-64 defeat of
Utah State college at Salt Lake City . . . the second game of the
season for Oregon.
While talking about Oregon’s chances this season, it’s in
teresting to note where Look magazine, in its pre-season rat
ings of the nation’s basketball teams, puts the Webfoots. The
ND of the Pacific Coast conference, says Look, will finish in
this order from the top:
Washington, Idaho, Oregon State, Washington State and
Oregon (last,mind you). Mighty white of Look, we say, and a
Happy New Year to its editor. The Southern Division, those
same editors say, will end with California leading the race,
Southern Cal second, and UCLA and Stanford filling out in that
order. So according to Look, the worst team in the ND has split
a home series with the second-worst team in the SD.
Who's He?
Also according to Look, Oregon players who are among star
veterans on the coast this year are Urban, Keller and Slater,
whoever the latter is. That’s what the magazine says.
Did you know that the University of Idaho is the possessor of
the 1950 defending national co-championship intercollegiate box
ing team? Both Idaho and Washington State go in strong for
boxing. Oregon State rates high in the nation with its wrestling
team. A hope for 1951 -is that Oregon gets its intramural boxing
program going, and that the Webfoots can eventually enter the
field in one of these minor winter sports.
Can't Televise This One
Of interest to just about anyone who ever saw an Oregon foot
ball game should be the re-creation broadcast of the 1917 Ore
gon-Pennsylvania Rose Bowl game, which will he heard over
radio station KERG at 2:30 p.m. today. It’s part of KERG’s
network presentation of past sports events. Most of them are
(Mrned interesting, and the re-creation, incidentally, is surpris
ingly complete. They even have a background of crowd cheering
and announcer-excitement.
i Oregon won that Rose Bowl game, 14-0. In.that season, the
Webfoots won seven games, tied one, and gathered 254 points
Y-liile holding the opponents to 17.
