Varsity Five to Meet B.C. Tonight; Will Attempt to End Losing Streak

By John A. Rava

An unpredictable Boston College quintet will meet a Crimson five which has been all too predictable lately, in an 8:30 game at the I.A.B.

As in seasons past, there has been a definite lack of one key dependable man who could be counted upon to score a certain number of points every game. Dick Woolston has been the most consistent player so far, but his average of 12 points per game is not impressive as the team's leading effort.

Captain Ike Canty and guard Bob Hastings have been quite reliable too, averaging about ten points apiece. Forward Monk Muncaster and guard Dave Hurley have been more erratic. The second team, which often switches off with the first, has come through several times, but still lacks the finesse of the more experienced five.

Harvard tonight will seek to better its five and seven record, and to break its six game losing streak. It will have to stop the fast-breaking Eagles, and improve its two main playing weaknesses--too much fouling, and too little accuracy from the field.

Boston College, with a 10-8 record, has a largely sophomore-laden team which has beaten some excellent teams and lost to some rather poor ones. Its more impressive victories have been over UConn, Brown, and Providence.

B.C. will be led by a 6-5 sophomore guard, George Giersch, the team's leading scorer. Barry McGrath, at 6-5, plays center, while the third sophomore, Bob Latkanay, will open at guard. Paul McAdams, and Jack Harington, 6-2, and 6-3, will play the forward positions.
