Syracuse Post Standard- Local Champs Face Long List Of Hard Games

All-Syracuse Booked To Play Strong Basketball Teams; Players Hold Practice; Martin To Play Forward And Tormey Center Against Glens Falls

With the prospect of playing five hard games within the next two weeks, the All-Syracuse basketball team last night went through a long practice on the State Armory court. Wednesday night the Glens Falls quintet, winners of eighteen straight games, will appear against the local championship contenders. Next Saturday night the Buckeye Giants of Dayton O., champions of Ohio, will oppose Jim Tormey and his mates. Wednesday, January 23, the Cortland Sodality five, ranked among the leaders in Central New York, probably will face the Syracuse basketeers, and on the following night Manager Crisp will take his players to Buffalo for their first game away from home. They will be pitted against the Buffalo Orioles, the greatest team that ever played basketball, in the first of a series of games for the championship. Danny Martin will play left forward and Jim Tormey has been shifted to center. The new combination went through a long practice last night and the pass work and basket shooting was of a high order. While the loss of Schwarzer materially affects the team work, it is believed that another practice drill to be held tonight will place the players in condition to cope with Glens Falls. The Glens Falls team will be accompanied by a delegation of rooters and a special section has been reserved for their supporters.
