Men's Basketball

Men's Basketball

The men's basketball team for 1947 Tournament is a much stronger combination than that which played last year.

B. Beecroft (Captain): Ex-Wairarapa and present Wellington representative defence player.

P. Anderson (Vice-Captain): A good defence with experience in Canada during the war.

L. Piper: Another steady defence player with overseas experience.

S. Murphy: An excellent centre with Canadian and Air Force experience—a present Wellington rep.

N. Hayman: The outstanding Wellington rep. player of 1947 (forward).

E. Orewdsen: Inclined to be erratic but a good scorer when in form.

L. Swindale: A good pivot and linking forward.

S. Moral: A very nippy and agile player with a bag of good shots.

The B team, consisting largely of younger players, should also do well, especially Trev. Turner (Capt.), S. Spiers, F. Duckworth and L. Tarrant. The Club can confidently recommend a wonderful night's entertainment at 7.30 p.m. Saturday 30th. at the Sports Centre when three NZU teams will play Wellington and Hutt Valley teams.
