'I'll.- man who guides the destiny of the Washington basket
ImII team hit town I httr.sday with Ins charges, and put them
tinough a short shooting drill to sharpen already sharp eves
for the Dad's weekend series against the Ducks.
Looking very dapper in his brown double-breasted suit, Tip
py Dye had the usual coaches comment to make regarding the
forthcoming series. He was of the opinion that the Ducks
would bounce back from the pair of terrible lickings they re
ceived in Seattle, and would be tough to beat.
He also said that the toughest team his Huskies have played
this year was St. Louis.
Watching 1- rank (iiiisness, Hob Holdings, and com pan v
"ami up was a spectacle of shooting accuracy. Iloubrcgs, for
example, Tiit something like twelve of his renowned hook shots
without a miss.
Eugene's Dean Parsons Is on UW Varsity
Ami a little later Dye had his freshman protege, six-foot,
eight inch Dean Larsons from l-'ugene out on the floor prac
ticing the same shot. Dye stood in back court and passed the
leather in to Larsons, whereupon lie would shoot with less
easy skill than Houbregs, but with the promise of a Lot of
improvement in the future.
I'or Parsons is just a freshman at Washington, and went
there after being an all-American choice during his prep days
at Eugene high school. It is sad indeed that such a towering
basketball nugget left his own home town for fields which
must have been greener. At any rate, Tippy Dye will certainly
realize all his hoop potentialities and make him a finished bas
ketball player; albeit one who will no doubt prove a consider
able thorn in the side of future Webfoot teams.
We were talking to Dean in the dressing room as he was
removing hi- size 16 shoes, and he said that it was real nice
to he back home.
The big boy with the infectious grin says he is "learning a
lot about basketball under Tippy Dye,*’ and likes Washington
Duck System Depends on Ball-Handling
On the other side of the fence, Oregon Coach Hill Horcher
tried a new piece of strategy last night when he started Ken
Wegner at a forward spot. Wegner, normally a guard, was
moved to the front court in order to add speed and hall-handling
talent to the Duck five, at the expense of rebound strength.
“Our system depends on ball-handling," stated Borcher, “and
we use constant screening to break men loose for shots. Wash
ington, on the other hand, uses a stand-around offense, with
lots of opportunities created for men like Guisness to shoot
Jong, drive in, or pass in to Houbregs for a hook shot.”
In regard to his personnel, Borcher said he places a lot of
stress on defensive play—"It's a cheap way to win ball games.
In fact, most of our substitutions during the St. Mari’s series
were made because of defensive lapses."
Peterson Led Oregon in Upset Last Year
If the Ducks should come through for a surprise upset in this
series, it would be a triumph of spirited desire and will to win
against a team which in the last analysis has just plan "got
Of course there was last year, when the Huskies came to
luigene bebruary 23 and 24 with much the same team which
they have now.
The Ducks lost 77-68 Friday night, but boomed back Satur
day to score a phenomenal 52 points in the first half and walk
off with an 82-75 victory. Playing a vital part in that stirring
win was Hob Peterson, then a 19-year-old sophomore. Peterson
scored 28 points for an (>regon record in Northern Division
competition, and included in these were 14 free throws for an
Here's Hoping Dads Get Treat
So there is a precedent for that sort of thing. In fact, the
Huskies have not swept a series from Oregon at McArthur
court since 1944, and have managed just three wins in their
last 14 starts on the local maple boards.
In conclusion, we hope that the visiting Oregon dads, be
tween spells of inquiring why Junior got that one-point, and
writing checks to pay for various extra-curricular activities,
will get a chance to see the youthful Webfoot hoopsters win a
Four League Togas
Clinched in HH Play
By Bill Brandsness
Four league champions appear as the Intramural hoop play
pounds into it*- last rounds. These champs along with the ones
that will win their respective league titles in the next week will
enter the championship tourney starting Monday, Feh. 10.
After all the shouting is over there will be an ‘A’ division win
der and a ‘B’ division winner.
Roughly the W division picture looks like this—Minturn hall
w.<n mu 11-ague nve crown with
four straight wins. Campbell Club
won the league seven diadem with
four wins also. In league one Phi
Gamma Delta is leading with a 4-1
record. Phi Delta Theta is close
behind with a 3-1 record.
In league two Phi Kappa Sigma
is leading with a 3-0 record, but
they are followed closely by a
smooth working crew from the
Alpha Tan Omego house, which
is holding a 2-0 record and play
the Phi Kappa Sigs today at 10:00
Sigma Nu is holding down league
three for present with a 3-0 stand
ing, but they have to down Chi
Psi to keep the league from end
ing in a three-way-tie. The tie
would include Sigma Nu, Chi Psi,
and Lara bda Chi Alpha. Each
team would have three wins and
Dolts Nearly In
Delta Tau Delta looks like a
shoo-in for the league four honors.
Finally Nestor hall with a 3-0 rec
ord and Sederstrom hall with have
to fight it out for the league six
The 'JV division began to take
some shape as two of the league
champs were decided last night.
In league one Phi Delta Theta beat
Sigma Chi in a very bitterly fought
contest to become wirner oi that
championship. In another thrilling
contest Sigma Alpha Epsilon slip
I I***1 Pa»t Alpha Tau Omega in the
I *ast seconds of play to become the
, league two champion.
Phi Gamma Delta came one
J game closer to the league three
[ crown as they dumped the Lamb
da Chi Bs' last night. Delta Up
silon with a 3-0 record and Phi
Sigma Kappa with a 2-0 record
wil fight it out for the league four
championship. French hall is lead
ing league five and Minturn needs
only one more win to walk off with
the league six championship.
SAE Wins in Final Seconds
In the most exciting game of the
flay SAE knocked off ATO to win
the 'B' division league two champ
ionship by a slim 22-21 margin.
With fen seconds to play ATO
held a 21-20 lead. Ray Karnofski
drew two foul shots and sank both
to push SAE ahead. The lads from
ATO had several chances to win,
hut lost out as the gun went off.
Karnofski was high for SAE with
nine points and Lyman was high
lor the losers with eight.
In another league championship i
game Phi Delta Theta beat Sigma
Chi 25-19 to become the 'B’ di
vision league one winner. The score
at half time was 10-10 after Sig
ma Chi blew an early first quarter
lead. In the third quarter the Sig
machine fell to pieces and the Phi'
Delts took quick advantage to put
the game on ice. Lewis was high
for the winners with nine. Caider
wood was high for the losers with
Fiji's Close to Title
In another vital B game Phi
Gamma Delta trounced Lambda
Chi Alpha to bring themselves
within one win of the league three
title. The Fijis lead all of the way
and finally ended up with a 26-14
! victory. Bowles scored eight for
: the Fijis and Ransom hit eight

In three other ‘B’ division games
i that do not stand in light, of the
I leAgue championships, Sherry
