The "core" of the ball club
will come from this solid group
of tested performers. Th- only
three jun'ors who have a chance
to make the ciub at this early
spot are Buddy Milliard, Dick
Marks and Voruz.
Milliard, displaying the same
deft touch employed by brother
Jim, and Marks paced the junior
varsity in scoring last year. Vor
Ui, at 205 pounds, will give some
backboard beef needed to bol
s'.er the varsil squad and provide
relief for the veterans.
The Tiger speed comes from
Carman, Milliard. Corey. Robe
Son and Deboic. Carman is rated
one of the top sprinters in East
em Oregon. Milliard is a football
halfback who had his season cut
short by a broken wrist. Both
boys possess that quick, power
speed. Robeson and Deboie have
the deceptive speed and quick
ness so essential to getting points.
The spirit is a carry-over from
the Tigers' successful grid sea
son. The Tiger hoop squad will
have eight members cf the foot
ball squad suited up for their
games. The spirit generated by
the La Grande drive for top con
ference honors is being carried
over to the hardwood and could
be a decisive factor in their suc
cess. Milliard will be the main
threat to the opposition. He has
a quick, cat like grace that fre
quently breaks him loose under
the backboard for lay-ins. He can
also score from the outside with
a variety of shots.
Rebounding duties will fall on
the husky shoulders of Corey.
Coleman, Chandler and Voruz.
Once league play starts, this
quartet will be called on night
r.fter night to control the boards
against teams that possess great
el height. Their ability and suc
cess could very well make or
break the Tigers' chances.
