(International} By LLOYD LARRABEE AUSTIN,- Jan. 13 .-—UP—Texas bids for a 1954 Southwest Conference basketball crown with its tallest lineup in history, a sharp-shooting outfit i effecting a change of pace from the school's Speedy '.'mighty mite' 'teams of the past. The Longhorns, whose starling five averages six-,foot, ; five-inches, will face their strongest test .of the. early season Friday night on home ground when they meet Rice, a pre-season favorite. In his . 1954 aggregation, Coach Thurman (Slue) • Hull lacks the soeed of teams : of years gone by sparked by. 'such "little men" as Bobby Moers. Slater Martin — now in toe professional'ranks. Al Madsen and last year's.Leon Black. However, to offset losses in that department, Hull has a lineun built Humble Basketball Teams To Use Gyms The Humble .dub's intra-club basketball league was granted use of the Robert E. Lee and the Baytown ' Junior High gymnasiums by the School Board this week. • Board President A. R. Stark pointed out Wednesday that ; the 10-team league will pay for the '.- use of the schools' facilities. Stark added that the league believes its. cage program (for adults) will fill in a gap in the • Recreation Council program. around six-foot, seven-inch Fred Saunders and Bob Waggener, six- foot, four-inch Gib Ford and Billy Powell, and six-foot, one-inch John Schmid. Saunders, whom Hull says is one of, the best hook-shot artists he's seen; has'dropped in 44 per cent of his field goal attempts thus far while averaging 15.3 points per, game, and 168 for the season. Ford, with 118 points, has hit a 47 per cent average from the field, while Powell has dropped in 114 points for a 37 per cent average. Waggenei-j a defensive standout who has polished up his shooting talents, has sunk 95 points for a 41 per cent average on field goal efforts. Schmid with 40 points has a 33 per cent mark, j To combat its loss of speed, Tex- as' taller team of 1954 is outshto- ing it s opposition in taking rebounds off the backboards, and Waggener is becoming a specialist in that category He has averaged 11 per game, whilp Powell averages six per contest. With .the Southwest Conference race apparently even tighter than usual, Hull will be counting on four seniois — Waggener, Powell, Ford and Saunders — for experience and eadeiship The fifth starter, Schmid, i K a sophomore. The Texas - Rice contest will top the Southwest Conference slate this weekend.
