TERRIERS TOPPLE BEFORE CRIMSON HOOPSTERS 42-29

Center Captures Scoring Honors With 16 Points; Yardlings Lose 42-28 to B.U. Freshmen

By B. SHEFFIELD West

In one of the fastest tilts witnessed on the Indoor Athletic Building floor, the Crimson hoopsters last night surprised a confident Boston University quintet to the tune of 42 to 29.

Before a capacity audience, the Varsity basketball team in its first year as a major sport conclusively proved yesterday evening that they will be serious contenders for the Ivy League championship this winter.

Leading the Crimson cagers for the second successive night, John Herrick tallied 16 points followed by Captain Vernon Struck with eight and George Lowman with seven.

For the visitors Captain Russ Lawry captured the scoring honors with 12 tallies, while Solly Nechtem was second with ten.

Early Crimson Drive

Starting fast the Feslermen worked the ball in close under the enemy basket with Lowman converting on a pass from Charlie Lutz. With rapid breaks the Varsity increased their lead by short shots until the score stood 19-7 after less than ten minutes of play.

Apparently tiring toward the close of the first half, the Varsity left the floor between periods with a scant 24-18 edge on the Terriers.

Following the half-time rest, Struck started a Crimson rally with two field goals and a free shot while Herrick tallied twice and Lupien once from the floor before the Terriers could pierce the Fesler defense.

Freshmen Receive Third Setback

The Yardlings dropped a poorly played game to the B. U. Freshmen 42-28 after the Varsity encounter. Their chief difficulty seemed to be an inability to hold onto the ball. Little real basketball was displayed by either quintet.

Starting for the Yardlings were Hal Lubchansky and Bud James at forwards, Homer Peabody at center, and Ray Holt and Dan McSweeney at guards.
