One thing Goldberg was ciuick to notice was the passing ability of the "midgets," dubbing them the best combination in the under graduate tourney Thursday night at the South Union Court. Bill Doldc's teams ha\ c always come out of a season with the knack of handling the ball but no coach can produce a winner unless he has other requisites of the game--some lanky fellows with height and reach. Goldberg writes: "We heard quite a bit about the manneiisms of the 3938-39 Connellsville High School team of "midgets" and we tried to travel down to the You^'i City on a league night to watch Bill Dolde's Cokers in action but we never could find the time due to other league games in the district. But Thursday night at the South Union court, we saw that Coker "midgets" perform against Brownsville High in the undergraduate tournament. Most of the boys who wore j the Orange and Black for Cornells- defended its W. P. I. A.

Brownsville had Sutton and Taylor undei- the hoop on the defense and when the Cokers left fly they had to make their shots count for they seldom secured the ball on the rebound. The Cokers passed until they got one of their mites in the clear. They handled the ball cleanly and cleverly. The feinted and faked, they dribbled, pivoted, but Brownsville had in Paul '·Buck" Sutton, a six foot one inch center who was "hot" and his 21 points sank the Coker ship regardless of its supremacy in floor work. We happened to be keeping score during the game and the Coker subs reported to us. When kids like T. Jones and McCoy came up to the desk to report we thought for a minute that the undergrad affair had become a junior high tourney. McCoy could probably walk under Button's legs without bending his neck. But the kids could shoot that basketball. And they no doubt could have won the game, the score was 40-39, for they missed 14 out of 19 fouls, McCoy missing seven straight. Still another outstanding junior five was the Nemacolin Indians.
