Auburn Citizen- Court Duel Is Magnet
The whole town is talking about the big basketball game that will be staged tomorrow night at the State Armory between the Owasco Canoe Club five and Jim Tormey’s All-Stars of Syracuse. The fans are fully aware that it will be about the best court battle ever staged in this city as is to be judged from the extraordinary demand for reservations. Because of the great demand the management again desires to state that no reservations will be held after 9 o’clock the night of the combat unless otherwise instructed by the holders. Word has come here that Syracuse will also send a big delegation to root for Tormey and his stars who are well liked by the Salt City fandom. Tormey who will captain the outfit promises faithfully to bring along Jim Casey, Billy Rafter, Johnny Barsha and Johnny Simons, all members of the famous All-Syracuse five during the past season. Wilbur Crisp will be the only man missing from the coterie of stars that placed Syracuse on the basketball map during 1919-20. Despite the fact that they handily downed the Crisp basketeers the other night, the Canoeists are sticking to their knitting for last night they held a very severe tryout under the direction of Coach Alan Stout. All of the locals are in fine mettle while Larry Weltman sent on word that he will be here and in fine trim. Through their victory over Crisp, the Canoeists can rightly claim the finishing touch
