Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 1, No. 14 July 6, 1938

[review of Senior A fixtures]

The Senior A team commenced the second round of the Wellington Basketball Association's Competition with a big win over Dental Clinic. Two of the latter's usual players were absent, but this did not account for the wide margin of twenty goals in Victoria's favor. The half-time score of 17-7 grew to 37-17 by the end of the game.

The combination of Victoria's forward third was a revelation of combination and understanding. For the first time this season an even "triangular" game prevailed, the ball being worked to the goal by snappy passing that completely discouraged the Clinic defenders. A high percentage of attempts were successful, scrolling being at the rate of one goal a minute in the second spell.

clinic's centre third are weak. Our girls had a feast of interception and fast passing movements which should serve as excellent practice for the hard games to come.
