High Point Enterprise (Newspaper) - January 22, 1940, High Point, North Carolina Page eight the High Point Enterprise Piedmont Center of High Point. North Carolina monday january 22, 1940 soc Chakales sports f i i tor Hay Days there is Little doubt that Durham has the Best school basketball team in the state and probably the South. Last week they whipped the Carolina freshmen by 26 Points which is decisive enough. I suppose. I will probably be a Breeze for the Bull City five to win the Eastern conference championship and move into the finals for the state title. Their opposition will come from this end of the state. # Hight pow and i see no reason for change in the immediate future it appears As though our High Point Black bosons have a splendid Chance of copping the Western conference championship and meeting the Durham five. Saturday nights convincing drubbing handed the highly touted maroons of Asheville pushed the Home town team right up in the front Row As conference aspirants. At the present count Charlotte is undefeated in the conference with one win. In a meeting with Asheville two weeks ago Charlotte took a Licking from the Mountain boys by a ten Point margin. That comparing results indicates that the Bison should have an Edge when the two teams fight it out for the Loop title. Charlotte won last year. Wake Forest Star l Ops self. Scorer for a while this season i nursed the belief that Elonis rampaging team led by Lloyd Whitley of High Point was the Best team in North Carolina the big five included. After watching Virgil Yow a purple panthers whip Mccrary and Catawba without the services of Hugh Hampton. I am becoming disabused of that idea. In trouncing Mccrary the panthers Defeated the defending Southern textile champions. In handing Catawba such a one sided beating 55 to 37, after having a close struggle in the first game with the indians it is obvious that the panthers Are developing each successive week. By the time they hit Elon february i and 17, the panthers should l e at their Peak. The Point of this piece is that we have a couple of top note basketball teams in our town. Both Are fully capable of winning the championships in their respective leagues with Bison schedule not presenting such a formidable foe As Elon does for the collegians. At the High school Tony Simeon has a Well balanced Little team with a rounded offence and a tenacious defense plus two or Throe boys who can Hawk the Ball to a distraction. Against Asheville the Mountain writers reported it was the Ball hawking and systematic defense that produced the Victory. Simeon has Good reserves for several spots particularly at the guard positions where Lewis Hayworth is a standout. The emergence of Bill Keene six foot seven Inch thin Man As a full fledged Star Iii his own right after some careful nursing by coach vow for the past couple years is probably the most significant development for the College Quint. An understudy to Hugh Hampton Fork two years the thin mail took Over last week while the regular Pivot Man was ill and turned in a pair of sparkling performances. His development provides vow with a Good Stipps of reserves in All departments which might he the deciding Factor in the North state race. Two freshmen Tennis Plum pure of tax w. Va., and George Liras of Washington d. Cd a have added scoring strength to the Panther five. And the Beauty of the Panther team is that regardless of the Stream of substitutions utilized by vow the rhythm of the offence apparently suffers very Little. Against Catawba saturday night vow used 14 players and at no time was there any indication that the various combinations suffered from the constant interchange of new men. Fugit like the River the panthers just rolled right on. Actually the final 10-Mlnute drive that sent High Point pulling away was led by a corps of reserves that picked up just where the first line left off. All in All we be got a couple of Good basketball teams in our town aunt Susie. Italic Ilia ii lives i p on future managers Jolt Cline tallies 107 Points in seven Gaines Cowan second.
