K. of C., due to tUe fact thai many of the members of the C;u.ey club were alnenl from the city, both In the armetj .service ant! In war plant work. LaSa He Places Geatz, Gunning, Shaffer And Steiner Named Sincu the first prflseiHiition to Tommy Mont (Allegany high srhooii, u, loral basketball player hu.s received the award each year five In all hiving been so honored by the. Casey. Club, and the recipients of the award have prized their trophy, a pocket watch in . those former years, us one ot their mos highly valued. possessions. " The wiitnlnp of these awards has been something thut has : been before each player euch year, wllh the result sports].. nianship is more than a word to the city high school basketball player*. Th* purpose of ihe awnrd lias hroitght. forth clean ; playing, good sportsmanship all through ihe scasiins. There has hern hard, driving playlu? at times, especially when two mn- hitioiw teams meet on the basketball court, rach doing all ' within his power to win for his Kchuol, hut It has brcn noticeable that the playrrs have play- fil the game as good sportsmen, and If therr was no other sain, the g*mr. has been b?tter for this trophy that lias been placed bvfore the boys each year. .:• Following Tommy Mont, the firsl i ward winner, "Penny" Shaffer, of LaSalle;. was' the recipient the second year (1041). in 1942, Pan .Whitford, Fort,.Hill, was given the award,'and )n succession up to present, time, the others were Bobby Stakom, LaSalle, in l£H3, acid Don »ld "Bubbles" Whitman, Fort Hill Jn 1344, . Tonight the 1345 award win- pcr will bf. announced. There will be five other candidate', for the award, who were named *K candidates for their outstanding Sportsmanship ileport- ' ment on thr court, and. although one ot the six trill be named for the honor, each is honored in being selected from their teams as worthy of the aivarrt. In making- the final selection, the committee has iveijthed eacli candidate, one A£ftinst the other, and it )i:w been a difTicult Job to m;ike the Hnat selection. Donald "Bubbles' 1 Whiteman, won the honor last year, and again this season, because of his consistcn display of sportsmanship, he is t- candidate from Fort Hill, high good manner all season, drilling them in a strong offensive action and today, local. fans will have an opportunity to j*e and compare the two teams, Their meeting at this time Is of especial interest due io the fact that St. Mary's will also KO In the Extern States tournament this month. It Is a question if the two teams would meet at the tournament, all depending upon the . drawlni • for iht oprnlnf round and how far rtu-h will travel during the tourney. .If the two should continue past the early rounds, they might meet either in the semifinals or final. U would be Interesting, following thii first meeting here. If they could meet in the finals at Newport. Each would know much of the other's type of playing anil would )>e like local carries where home and home frames are scheduled. Captain Johnny Cox, Allegany Star, Gets Other Berth —Four Unanimous Choices Three Shooters Are Holdovers It Is our belief however,'thill La-j Balle has the stronger of the two teams after considering the teams played by each- of the ;two. Neither teem, however, :has had .the stiff competition that', was customary in past yenrs; but LaSsillc has fawxl stronger force. 1 ; Jn at least a half oisen games—games in which rivalry had as great part as playing. LaSalle has Iiad games with the other two city teams,— Altcjany and Kort Hill, and two ; with Keyser that were the equal of anything that could have been presented to the Little Ten this season. LaSalle cajne through victoriously in all but one of these meetings, but in each of them it required that the Kxplorers jive their best. In the Anal game^ with Keyser, the Explorers had trouble, not so much from lh« other team, as It \f-An lapses of their own. True, the Keyser Golden Tornado played a hard defensive game In efforts to check the Explorers, but It was the offensive play of the Explorers that was off the beam. Their shots were made under no more stress than In sny other game, but the shots failed to register. Sophomore Geutz, City's Leading Scorer, Makes Mythical Team Second Straight Year The UiSalle High Explorers, who captured the city championship for ine fourth consecutive season, were honored with four of five places on i the 1945 All-City basketball team, as selected for The Sunday Times by ihe coaches of the three local schools. Explorers given berths on the That is no excuse as every team mythical quintet are Forwards Tommy "T-Bone-" Geatz and Ed Gunning, Center Jack Steiner. and Guard Ray Shaffer. Rounding out the team is Captain Johnny Cox of Allegany who pairs with Shaffer at guard. The center spot was the only position in which Uie tutors had difficulty piscine a player, as the other four . were • by unanimous choice. Tnrte of the losscrs, incidentally, are repeat selections, Geatz. Cox and Shaffer having been named on the 194-t star-itudded quintet. " ••• AHS PUted Three in 19-U The placing of four players from the same team on the 1045 outfit is probably, the first, time that has been done since the ail-star basketball project was initiated by The Sunday Times about 15 years ago. Last year, Allegany dominated the All-City team despite finishing second best to LaSalla In the three- way chase. The Campers placed three players 'on the 1944 crew with BOD Spangler aud Jimmy Macfarlane being named in addition to Cox. : • • - • Thaie coming in for honorable mention on this year's club are Don "Bubbles" Whiteman, .William "Buddy" Giles and Don McGIll of 1945 All-City Team 1 ' " , " % 'FORWARDS Tommy Geatz:".' .... .

Keyser seems to be going according to form in their faction and number of markers In one game since Johnny Long's record total of 32 in 1924. when the latter was per- iormlng for Allegany in a battle with Bruce on the old Greene street court. Geatz. who followed in the footsteps of his brother, George, In making court history at the North End school, was an especially good pitcher from the outside but was equally as effective in close to tlic nets. Geatz. by the way, is only a sophomore but is 18 years old and has a'^eady been accepted for military service. He will probably don an Army or Navy uniform at the end of the school term. Qunning Team Player ' Gunning, a senior, Is also a consistent scorer and nn excellent team player. He has been noted for his ability, to keep calm and collected, even wtien the pressure of a close mansbip banquet, which will be held tonight in.the home of Cumberland Council No. 536, Knights of Columbus. Tlie,affair promises to be well QUALIFICATIONS FOR SPORTS AWARD there are,few bold enousjh to predict the detent of the Golden Tornado before the Morgantown finals. And, many do not stop less than the state championship this year. An numerical coincidence in racing that changed the opinion of the number "13" for .a few persons occurred when Vtdas won the Two Thousand Guineas in 1005. It was Veclas 1 13th start; he was listen 1 as No. 13 on the card; there were 13 starters anrl Vedas drew No. 13 post position. An Ertfrli.ih turf scribe backed the horse because he held Barlfte No. 13. Incidentally, his odds were 11 to Z —total 13. ..-..' How, about that haled and despised No. 13? NOW PENNSYLVANIA STARTS DOING IT Paterson, N. J.,' March 10. Abo J. Greene, president of the National Boxing Association, said and hard-fought game make;, it difficult to come through with a peak performance. Gunning, rated by Coach Art SIo- cum of LaSalle as one of his best defensive performers, often took over the job of checking a rival scoring ace when one o£ his Explorer teammates got too many personal fouls after his name. He apparently took dolight • in play-making and firing'passes that led to goals, thus proving an ideal running mate for :he sharpshooting Geatz. Both Gcate and Gunning were also adept at diagnosing' enemy plays to fn- Lercept passes. : Shaffer, also a senior, played wilh the same aggressive spirit he displayed to help the Explorers io win the Eastern States Catholic invitational tournament title last year at, Newport,'R. I. Although a bit unorthodox In his manner of shooting, the chunky LaSaile guard possesses the knack of putting the ball in the pocket and his defensive play throughout the season left iittJe to be desired. Opposing players always had a tough time keeping The founders of' the Sportsmanship Award, listed qualifications to be used as a. • guide by the norhlnalinjf committee in their selection for the Casey ' Basketball Club Sportsmanship trophy, at the time they made their decision to make such an award annually. The qualifications were adopted on December 4, 19JO, and have betn us«d ever since. They follow: ' '• . 1. Does the candidate play the game hard and fair to its' end? "'•'. : ' 2. Is he apparently rloInK more to play a team game than to - accumulate personal glory? 3, Cooperation with, and response to his coach. i. His conduct toward officials; fa) honesty, (b) .obedience. . , ' 5.'His reactions when losing as well as when winning. 6. His courtesy Io teammates, opponents and officials-. 7. His centra! conduct as an athlete, a, student, and a coming; member of adult society. ' : • At the time of the adoption of this list of qualifications, it was airrced by the members that the above items were to serve the nominating committee as their main guides, but not-necessarily eliminate any other considerations which in the best judgement of any nominator would influence the selection «f the-most -worthy candidate. Honored, have felt keenly the honor towed upon them and have prizes their possession greatly. Others through those years, as well as the past season, have been guided bj knowledge that such an award would be ma'de, and as a result, sportsmanship has ranked high in the playc group of each of the three cit; schools. That was the object o those who founded the movement and their 'work in .behalf of gooc sports has repaid them well.
