Syracuse piled up a big lead in the first half, leading at the end of the initial period 20 to 3.

Utica Observer- Syracuse Defeats Knights

First Defeat Of Season Administered By The Fast All-Syracuse Team

Before one of the largest crowds of the season at Syracuse Saturday night the All-Syracuse quintet outclassed the local Knights of Columbus, winning by the score of 28 to 10. The large open court and puzzling amateur rules proved to be a great handicap for the Knights but in addition to that their defense was undoubtedly weak and their shooting was not what it should have been on many occasions. Lineup and summary:

ALL-SYRACUSE: Tormey, lf (2-0-4), Rafter, rf (4-0-8), Schwarzer, c (1-0-2), Casey, rf (1-0-2), Crisp, lg (3-6-12), Simons, lg (0-0-0), Trupin, rf (0-0-0) TOTALS (11-6-28). K. OF C.: Kellmurray, lf (1-0-2), Cahill, rf (1-0-2), Power, c (1-0-2), Marion, c (1-0-2), Murphy, rg (0-0-0), Roberts, lg (0-0-0), Wurz, lg (0-2-2) TOTALS (4-2-10).

Syracuse Herald American- Oshkosh Tries To Halt Surge Of Nationals

After winning its four home starts against top league competition the Syracuse Nationals basketball team is pointing to Thursday night when it again takes over the State Armory to oppose the Oshkosh All-Stars. Oshkosh holds second spot in the Western Division standings, and it will be making its first appearance of the year in Syracuse. At Oshkosh, the All-Stars handed Syracuse its most decisive beating of the year defeating the Nationals by a 74 to 43 score and the Nats are anxious to avenge that loss. The Syracuse team has been victorious in four straight home league games, and has won five of six exhibition tilts in the last two weeks. It is functioning at its peak now with Mike Novak spearheading the newly found offense. In early games with the team, Novak devoted himself largely to learning the style of his teammates and passing off on most occasions, but last Thursday night he started to shoot with the result being that he notched 18 points. Friday night in an exhibition game at Cohoes he scored 19 markers despite the fact he played less than one-half the game. Jerry Rizzo, leading scorer of Syracuse has not been shooting as often in recent games with a resultant slackening of his point total but he has contributed some important points. Chick Meehan and George Nelmark each have proved to be adept floormen who can either stay back and take set shot or make quick cuts for the hoop. The fifth starter for the Nats, John Chaney, has been having difficulty finding the hoop in recent encounters and missed many scoring opportunities but Borgmann believes practice sessions this week will correct that law in his play. LeRoy Edwards, Kentucky University graduate, Eddie Riska, who appeared here as a captain of the Notre Dame team some years ago, and Gene Englund former Wisconsin University star lead the Oshkosh invasion. The Oshkosh team has been active in pro ball since 1930 when Lon Darling, present manager and coach first formed the team, his teams won the National League championship in 1941 and 1942 and over a period of years it has become known as the Pro Team with the College Spirit.
