Crimson Quintet Plays B.C. in Try For 10th Victory
Crimson forward Harry Sacks will put his 20-points-per-game scoring average up against Boston college at 8:30 p.m. tonight in the I.A.B. when the varsity basketball team faces the Eagles. The two freshman teams will meet in a 6:30 p.m. preliminary.
Snacks has scored 299 points in the Crimson's 15 contests, including a 30 point spree in the Navy game Saturday. He also leads the varsity with 150 rebounds. Supporting him at the other forward will be Bill Dennis with over a 14 point average and 121 rebounds. Captain Ed Krinsky and Ed Condon at the guard posts, and Dick Manning at center will also start for the Crimson.
The Eagles, who lost to the varsity, 73 to 70, in overtime, last year, have a tall, high-scoring squad led by 6 ft., 7 in. Tony Daukas. Forwards Phil Powell and Tom Cullinane and guards Pat Cahill and John O'Hara are the other starters.
The Crimson will enter the game with a nine and six record and the fifteenth best defense in the nation, according to the latest statistics. B.C. has an even all record.
Coach Floyd Wilson's undefeated Yardling quintet goes after its ninth win against the Eaglets, who boat the Holy Cross freshmen. Captain Bob Dolven, like Canty, Dick Hurley, Lou Lowenfels, and Bill Schreiber will start.
