Men's Indoor Basketball

With all but one of the A team available for Tournament and with two reliable players from the B team prospects appear to be very healthy. The team has been playing steady basketball all season and at present their only serious rivals appear to be Otago.

Coached by Alan Clark, former N.Z.U. and Otago representative, the team will be Peter Darracott, a fast penetrating centre. O.U. 1952-53. N.Z.U. B team. 1952; Wellington B team 1954. Ernie Henry, an aggressive guard with fine anticipation and ball control. Wellington B's 53-54. Jim Lewis a forward who will exploit the opposition's weaknesses; always dangerous. Wellington B team l954.

John McLevie, a safe high jumping guard who always ensures a solid defence. V.U.C. Blue 53, V.U.C. B team '53. Wellington B '54.

Ralph Salt, a fast-breaking left shoot. V.U.C. 'S3. Wellington B '53. Wellington A '54. N.Z.U. A team 1953. V.U.C. Blue '53.

Ron Whatu, forward extremely accurate with his set shots. Wellington B team '33-54.

The two players from the B team are Peter Doogue, a tall, rangy player, who is developing into an excellent guard, and Ross Nelson, a dependable forward with an abundance of energy. V.U.C. 1952-3-4.

If the team plays as well as it did in beating M.A.C this year we have every chance of winning.
