Banks, who played it "kind of plain" last year, was biting off big chunks of optimism as he got his club ready to Open 12-AA- AA warfare next month. But Banks figures a little hope might work better in this freshman season in the 4A loop. He wound up third last year on a 5—3 record in 10—3A, which the Eagles vacated last summer Jin favor of 4A ball. Banks' first i Smiley club won 12, lost 18 in ! 1959-60. "It's a little rugged right now," he admitted in early December as he was shaping a team that was showing signs of being a contender as early as the Spring Branch tournament where the Eagles won the c o n s o 1 ation trophy. "I'm impressed by their atti tude," Banks says of his 11-member varsity. "They all want to play. I don't have to push 'em, not really. Oh, I bellow at 'em out there sometimes." 'But they've gut a real goml attitude." What else the Eagles have i; a comparatively i n e xperiencec club with no particular height They bring three lettermen back from last season, among them one of the squad's tallest boys, Wool 4-inch Gus Hinze, a center. Also back from last year are Douglas Baker, a 5—10 guard, and Roland Brewer, a 6-foot, 2- inch forward. Tallest member of the squad is a junior forward up from the £ squad. H. L. Sealy, who stands 6—IVi. The other six-footers .'n- clude Jimmy Ashford, Delma Knox and Jimmy Scribner, al! (j-even, and junior forward Layne Sauls at 6-feet-2. Scribner is the only member ol the varsity with no previous experience. Outside of the three [varsity lettermen, the rest of the Eagles come up from last year's B squad. | In mid-December, Brewer was Smiley's leading scorer and was | averaging 13 points per game. I Baker was runner-up with a !)• point average. Hinze and Sealy were the top rebounders, average II and 10 per game, respectively. Banks, in his first major head coaching job, brings a solid oack- ground in basketball with him. He came out of Austin where he played with ihe Maroons and spent liis college years at SWTS where he was an all conference forward in the Lone Star loop for two consecutive years. In his 'ast, •iojiMin 19M-55, he won honor-'blo mention on the Little All-American team. Prior to coming to Smiley, where he was an assistant coach, Hanks coached Class-B ball ul Calvert and Prairie Lea. "I think we can run with anybody," Banks sums it up. Pasadena, Smiley, Galena Park, La Marque and South Park of Beaumont. The latter two teams are the only teams not in 12- AAAA. In the first game of the tournament at 9 a.m. Thursday, Galena Park's Yellow jackets downed the La Marque Tigers. In the second game, Larry Johnson, a South Houston two- year letterman, led the Trojans to a victory over favored Brazosport. Johnson scored 27 points out of the 43 total tossed through by the inspired five from South Big H. Last year, Johnson ranked ninth in district scoring when he hit the nets for 166 tallies. Bob Walker was high scorer for the local team with 11 points. Brazosport was trailing on the Scoreboard at bulftime 20-18. Other scores were made by Jerry Horlon, 4; Sonnie Pruilt, 10; Glen Carrell, 4.; Greg Canavan, 6 and Mike Prince accounted for four points. .This is the second loss for the Exporters in pre-district play this season out of 17 games. The loss to South Houston in the first round games eliminates the local five from the finals in the tournament, however they played La Marque early today and if they beat La Marque they will play *gain at 6:30 p.m. today in the consolation game. If they lost to La Marque's 3-A Tigers, they will play at 4 p.m. today for seventh' or eighth positions in the tournament. SPORTVILLE INC.
