Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 1, No. 19 September 6, 1938
End of the season play in the basketball world was crowded with interest. Victoria finished the winter with a flourish by beating Kia Ora in the last game. The championship had already been decided when Wellington East accounted for V.U.C. by 30 goals to 17 in a most disappointing game and then beat Kia Ora the following Saturday. That may have been the reason for the free-moving exhibition when V.U.C. beat Kia Ora 24-23. It was basketball at its best, with a fluctuating score and the cleanest of play. Victoria's form was at its peak. Oddly enough the previous Saturday they had managed only a draw with Awatea, 18-18.
The V.U.C. Senior A team finished the season with 8 wins, 1 draw and 3 losses, being third out of the seven computing teams. This is a very creditable performance, and, given a fair proportion of this year's team, the 1939 team should do even better. In fact, championship honours should be within their reach.
