Duck Captain Cops Career
Against Aggies Saturday
Rounding out his third year of
| all-out effort for Oregon varsity
basketball teams this weekend,
I Captain Ken Hunt, a two-year
: letterman from Marshfield, is cli
j maxing his career with one of the
most brilliant performances in re
cent Webfoot cage history.
After being overshadowed for
two years by such noted Ducks,
guards as Jack Keller and Mel
Krause, Ken came into his own
this season under his former high
school mentor, Bill Borcher, with
consistent and steady play that

One of hla most outstanding
feats came during the recently
concluded Inland Kmpiro jaunt,
which saw the Oregon* split even
in four tilts. Hunt perHonaily pour
ed in 74 polntn through the hoop
in the four-gamcH-in-flve-nightH
stand. By gamrH, he stuffed in 17,
21, 19, and 17 counters.
Thia "blazing scoring spree kept
Ken at the head of the VVebfoot
conference scoring parade with a
193-point total for 14 contests, a
13.8 average. This should be more
than enough to win Hunt first
team Northern Division honors for

The Ducks returned Wednesday
from a grueling, but successful in
land Kmpire Invasion during which
they split ii two game series with
both WSC and Idaho.
Outstanding performance on the
trip was turned In by Captain Ken
Hunt, n senior guard. Him torrid
74 point scoring ifirce put him In
a position to break the all-time
Northern division record for play
ers under six feet tall. Hunt now
has 19.1 points, and needs only to
score seven more to reach the
magic 200 mark, which has never
been done before by a "little man."
CSC scoring star Danny Johns
ton has 174 counters, and also has
a chance to pass the 200 point
mark. Five-foot, ten-inch Johns
ton is the main point-making
threat of the Beavers, und quite
