Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 10, No. 12. August 20, 1947
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.
