Of Thrilling Win Over
The Cowboys retained their tie for
first place in the Texas conference
race Tuesday night defeating Howard
Payno by a score of 47-3G. The game
Tuesday night was the seventh con-
ference victory for tho Simmons team
Howard Payne had nccomulntcd (in
eight point lead in the first three nnd
one half minutes of play. The Yel-
low Jackets held the lead until three
minutes beforo the half when tho
Cowboys tied the score at 10 all. Tho
Simmons team 'went into the lead
18-17 then but tho boys from Brown-
wood came back into the lead and
held it until the half. The score at
the half was 22-21 in favor of the
The first half was plenty fast with
the ball traveling up and down the
court on many long and unnecessary
passes. Tho Cowboys were wild with
their passes and shots. The referee
Dalton Hill had called few fouls up
to the intermission.
With the beginning of tho second
half the Simmons team had settled
down with their passes nnd shots.
Neoly Pec Seed and Winters had
nil tabulated before the adversary
could find the basket for even n free
shot. The score stood 41-28 at ono
time. This was the largest lead that
tho Cowboys ever held over the Brown-
wood team. Simmons held a com-
manding lead for the rest of the game
with the final score being 47-30.
Gene McCollum scored sixteen
points for high scorer of the game
and increase his lead in scoring in the
conference race. Wheeler for Howard
Payne was second with thirteen
Free jihots were frequent during tho
last half ns the referee called many
fouls. Tho Cowboys scored eleven
points on free shots while the Yellow
Jackets were scoring ten on tho same
kind of play.
Ncely and McCollum stood out for
Simmons while Wheeler and Little
shared honors for Howard Payne.
Necly controlled the tip for tho en-
tire game. McCollum limited Brngg
to two field goals while getting six
himself. Wheeler and Little did tho
most of the scoring for their team.

Well those "Jackets" were swatted
. . . . and how; it took" those
CowhnndB about half the game to hit
that old stride but when they did it
was "Curtains tears and soft music
for tho gentlemen from Brownwood."
Agnln "Big Jim" came thru with n
superb defensive game G. L. was
"caught" in one of the headiest games
of his career. Scatter mixed it with
tho boys McCollum Seed and Pec
wore good as usual and even tho
Rock-headed guard Spraberry was
good for three points.
The Jackets ricver quit fighting till
the last gun and that's the way wo
like to sec opponents play. The crowd
showed rotten sportsmanship in boo-
ing decisions nnd cost their team two
technical fouls on the captain nnd two
points some people never grow nwny
from the high school age.
Simmons had 22 free shots and con
verted 11 the accuracy was not as
good as usual while Howard Payno
converted two-thirds of theirs.
Hill called n good game and wo
offer him our apologies for the con-
duct of the crowd.
McMurry's victory over Howard
Payne leaves Simmons and the In-
dians still in a tic so far as concerns
conference standing. Shoufd McMur-
ry win over A. C. C as dopesters con-
cede that they will in their clash in
tho Bennett gym a play-off between
the Cowhands and the Indians will
be inevitable. That game should real-
ly interested in joint titles f ivo years
tryside would be out to see it well
done. Simmons fans aren't especial-
ly interested in point titles five years
of title cinching in basketball should
convince the most skeptical that Sim-
mons has got what it takes don't
mention tied or joint titles out here
it ain't safe.
Medley's Indians have played stel-
lar ball so far and we say power to
them the Cowhands like "focmen
worthy of their steel." Contrary to
Medley traditions those Indians work
the ball under tho basket and sink the
set-up shots instead of concentrating
on the long "rurals."
The scoring competition In the con-
ference is getting good. Power to
our leaders two at the top and others
scattered down tho list.

By Matadors Two
Thrilling Games End With
Neely Is Called The Star
Combats Punctuated With
Fouls For Hard Fighting
Wednesday nnd Thursday nights
we witnessed two of the fastest bas
ketball games that wc will get to see
this year. The Mntndors from Tech
beat the Cowboys two straight
nights. Both nights the games wero
close throughout. Tho games were
hard fought nnd nt times became
rough. The first night there were
20 fouls called nine on Simmons and
11 on Tech. Tho second night there
were 20 fouls called 12 on Simmons
and 14 on Tech.
Wednesday night Tech took n six-
point lead before the Cowboys could
score. From' that time on tho game
was one of excitement as the lead
changed hands. Tho six points that
Tech took on the first was the Inrg-
est lead that tho Matadors ever held
on the Cowboys while at the half
Simmons had a seven-point lead on
Tech. The score being 28-21 Sim-
mons. The Matadors tied the score
at 33 nil. Just after the score was
tied Huestis nnd Jimmie Ncely fouled
out nnd the Matadors took a lead
which they held until the finish. The
score was 42-39.
The second night Simmons took a
five point lend on Jimmie's two field
goals and a free shot. This second
gamo was almost a repetition of the
first. The score was tied and chan-
ged hands several times during the
game. Thursday night the Cqwboys
followed up their shots much better
than they did the first game. The
half ended 18-17 in favor of the Cow-
boys. They increased this lead to
28-17 before the Matadors found tho
basket and could catch up nnd take
thc'knd. Tech took tho lead at 29-28
and remained there for the rest of
the game. The finnl score was 39-32
Jimmie Ncely was tho star for
Simmons in both games. He played
good defensive basketball holding his
opponents to seven field goals for the
two games. Ho also scored 24 points
himself. Tho Crows brothers Alvin
nnd Leroy were tho stars for Tech.
Alvin scored 20 points in the two
By playing a bang-up ball game
the Simmons freshmen were able to
nose out Lamcsa's flashy high school
team last Saturday night This was
the third of tho three game series be-
tween the two quintets Lamesa hav-
ing copped the other two games on
the preceding two nights.
The slimes won tho final game 33
to 20. This was the first timo La-
mesn had been beaten on their own
court in six years. Lamesa won
third placo at the state meet at Aus-
tin last year and three of last year's
starters arc on this year's team. La-
mesa's Tornados won tho first game
37 to 21. Tho second game was a
close one with the Tornados taking
the long end of a 25 to 22 count.
Benson was the outstanding player
for the slimes in all three games. He
made 13 points in the final game to
be high point man. McCollum and
Harris were second for high point
honors with nine points npleco.
Coach Levi Andrus carried twelve
man with him on the trip. Those
making the trip were: McCollum
