the MAROON SPORTS Loyola University, New Orleans, La., Friday, December 9, 1960 SPECIAL Freshmen To Meet JC Quint The undefeated Loyola freshman basketball team will meet Pearl River Junior College tonight in a warmup for the varsity homecoming clash with Alabama. The frosh sport a sterling 2-0 record with wins over the LSU frosh and Laßocca AC. Starting time for the freshman game is 6:30 p.m. in the Fieldhouse. The Wolfpups bombed the Baby Bengals of LSU last week by the score of 91-71. The Pups, led by high school all-American Larry Hoyt, outscored, outrebounded and generally outplayed the LSU club. Hoyt slashed in 24 points. TUESDAY NIGHT the Pups garnered the second victory against Laßocca AC, composed of many ex-Loyola stars, by the score of 83-48. The Laßocca All-Stars were no match for the energetic Wolfpups after the first few minutes of the game, then the frosh wore down the old gents. High point man for the Cubs wm Bobby Luegers, 6-7, another school boy all-America, who tallied 27 points, and played a mighty rough rebounding game. He alio hit well from the foul line. Grabbing second place in the scoring race was Ken Ryan who poured in 14. The frosh pulled away from La- Rocca early in the first half, and at that point the scoring for the Pups was fairly well balanced with four different boys totalling eight points at the half. The Pups led at halftime, 40-22. LUEGERS GOT HOT from the charity line in the second half, and with dazzling help from Ken Ryan, who has perfected a driving hook shot, and merely outran the Laßocca club. The second half was played under running time in that the clock was kept running except for the time outs and foul shots, and the freshmen romped, 83-45. Among the ex-Loyolans on the Laßocca team were Matt Baer, Dick Vavrick, Jim Hall, and two guards off last year's Wolfpack club, Larry Heneberger and Jack Morris. After tonight's encounter with the Pearl River Wildcats, the frosh will tangle with Perkinston JC on Monday the 12th, New Orleans Athletic Club on Thursday the 15th, and a week from tomorrow they meet with the Rebel AC. Little is known about the Pearl River team except that they do have some height to speak of. The 'Cats are led by Bill Strain, a 6-6 freshman from Covington, La., where he was an all-State selection last year. The 'Cats have two other boys towering over the 6-6 level. "We don't know too much about the Pearl River team," said frosh coach Ken Stibler, "but we have heard that Strain is a good ball player."

Pennington was the second highest scorer on the Crimson Tide last season, pouring the ball through for 242 points and an 11.5 average.Hoskins, on the other hand, was Alabama's top rebounder this past year grabbing off a total of 118 rebounds in the Tide's 24-game schedule. Alabama will be coached by Haydon Riley, who is starting his first year as Alabama's head coach. Riley took over the position from Dr. Eugene Lambert after serving two years as chief scout and assistant basketball coach at the Tuscaloosa school. Loyola head coach Bill Gardiner was optimistic about the Pack's chances going into the contest. "About all 1 can say is that I hope the boys can snap out of it, and play some good basketball," be said. Gardiner also remarked that he was trying to bring to a stop the rash of fouls the Wolves had been committing in their first three games. In addition to the varsity game, the Freshman Wolf pups will meet Pearl River Junior College at 6:30.
