Not enoug h sp orts la st week , too
much this week.
Th e now-famed Cyclones have
played twice since you heard f rom
us la st. In the fir st game, against
Lynbrook, Auclley Brindley broke
away to score 21 points, and for
, the first time t his year, top the
high scoring honor s. The other
scorer s in success ion were, Downing
with 14, Gunther who bagged
12, Moll had 4, and Herby Veit
sunk 2. Together this all add ed
up to a 53 to 37 trouncin g an d a
t ota l of 9 straight wins.
The second game, on Tuesday
night, was more than a basketball
game. What it r eall y looked like
I wa s a three r ing circus, and we're
inclined to bel ieve it was one of
the fastest games that Lawrence
has ever watched in it s spacious
In the first ring we find littl e
"S hrimp" Downing speeding past
the L wre nce def ense, smashing
th e Lawrence offence and pa ssin g
an d breaking like nobody's business.
In the middle ring was Coulby
Gunther, and did he have fun!
"Slick" to ok every trick he ever
invented out of his hat, an d most
of them worked, enough at least ,
to ba g him 21 points, and that 's
plenty. He pa ssed behind him,
dribbled in hack of hi m, shot f r om
all ang les, and generall y played
havoc with the whole Lawrence
team. So much, in f act, th at the
man he was guarding was a mervous
wreck af ter the game. Coulby
wouldn't let him sh oot, he couldn't
pass, and even to hold on to the
ball was a task. At one time, when
he was searching f or a receiver, he
su ddenlv fo und himself with out the
bal l. Coulbv had to show it to him
to convince "him, anf } then while he
was trying to figu re it out, our hero J
slid past and before you could say I
two points, we had th em. .
In the last ring was " Brains" I
Brin ley, as slick a ball handler as I
ever took a f oul shot in a red an cl
blue uniform. The way Audle y
handles the ball the sp ecta tor begins
to think he is pla ying with a
volley ball, or maybe it' s only an
apple. At any ra te, the galle ries
would not have been the least bit
surprise d if he suddenly hid th e
ball complete ly f rom sight in th e
palm of his hand. With all this
superb passing and bale handling,
he can sink 'em to o. His net, 18
point s. The combined f orces of Owens
and Menken, meaning, of cour se,
th o Orchestra and Choral groups,
are putting on t he firs t publi c concert
tom orrow night with 1Iiss
