Three -Game Playoff Begins
Three men from Hardin-Simmons
one from Daniel Baker and one from
A. C. C. arc the Brand's choice for
tho all conference basketball team.
This team has not a single man on
it that is classified over the ranking
of a sophomore except McDaniel who
is a junior. But what it lacks in ex-
perience it makes up in skill and
Carol Benson forward; Sam Mc-
Collum guard; and Robert Glover
guard; of tho Cowboys Lewis Par-
ker center from A. C. C nnd J. J.
McDaniel forward from Daniel Ba-
ker were tho ones chosen for tho first
Benson Cowboy high scorer for the
conference could tear tho bottom out
of the basket from any spot on tho
floor and was tho main cog in tho
championship machinery of the team.
Not only' docs his scoring sprees
merit praise but his defensive work
all season has ranked with the best.
McDaniel Daniel Baker's hotshot
gets the other forward berth because
of his excellent play against all op-
position and especially against the
Cowboys. He hustled the ball and on
the offensive was always dangerous.
Parker from A. C. C another
sophomore who made good his first
year of conference competition re
ceives the job for the center slot He
barely nosed out Fcrrcl McMurry
center but his all around playing got
him the selection. While his offensive
work did not score many points and
his defense was not exceptionally
good he was always consistent.
Glover a mid-semester transfer
from John Tarleton helped tho
ranchers a great deal with his ability
to get tho ball off the opponents'
backboard and to hit the basket with
his one-hand shots. His polished ball
handling was another asset that help-
ed keep tho Cowboys' machine oiled.
Next in lino and the last of a long
line of basketball stars comes Sam
McCollum. Taking up whero his
brother- Gene McCollum left off he
guarded and shot his way to the same
position that his brother held for so
long all conference guard. Although
he is not the scoring ace his brother
was he has a good eye for the basket
and has developed into one of the best
defensive players of the season.
The play this year was not up to the
high standard usually set in this lea-
gue in basketball. Hnrdln-Simmons
was the only team that looked at all
like the teams of past years and it
fell down over past performances. The
reason for this is the green men who
are playing their first year in stiff
competition on nearly all tho teams.
