The Spike or Victoria College Review 1947

Men's Basketball Club

Men's Basketball Club

This popular indoor sport (appearing in Spike for the first time), is certainly on the up-grade, as the Club now fields four teams compared with two last year.

Some new blood available has built the standard of play up remarkably, which may help our Tournament chances a great deal. There were doubts of the advisability of entering four teams, but the justification was upheld, as the teams concerned held a good standard of attendance.

The 'A' team under Brian Beecroft just missed selection into the A grade, but now look as though they will win the Wellington B grade competition.

The 'B's' had a few depletions during the season, but showed rare form at times. Unfortunately they were playing C grade which was a bit high for them.

The best team of the Club for improvement and keenness, goes to the 'C' team, ably led by Trevor Turner. Some of them had played a little before and with this year as an apprenticeship, there is no doubt that many of them will be representing V.U.C. in the future A teams. During the year they were promoted from D to C grade.

The 'D's' have been very consistent too, their knowledge of play having improved a great deal to well hold their own in the D grade.

If we maintain our four team strength or improve, the future may see V.U.C. well on the map for Men's Indoor Basketball.
