The Spike or Victoria University College Review June 1925

Basketball Club

Basketball Club.

This year again shows a good increase in Club membership. We have three teams playing in the Association matches and these, so far, have not suffered defeat. Last year the senior team, through their successful efforts, were instrumental in winning blazers. These were granted to R. Gardner, D. Crumpton O. Sheppard, D. Pillar, M. Maclaurin, M. Downes. G. Wilkie.

We were fortunate in having three of our senior team in the 1924 Wellington representatives: O. Sheppard. D. Pillar, D. Crumpton.

At the Seven-a-side Tournament, held on June 3rd, our three teams took part. The Senior A team was unlucky in meeting the champions of the 1924 and the 1925 tournaments in the first round; otherwise 'Varsity would have reached the semi-finals.

We were disappointed at not being able to take part in the Inter-'Varsity Basketball Tournament at Christchurch, but next year we hope to have the shield once more in our possession.

The teams have shown a steady improvement since the beginning of the year, mainly owing to the weekly practices held in the gymnasium. We expect even more improvement, as the services of a coach have been secured.
