Syracuse Herald Journal- Nats Tackle Oshkosh At Armory Tonight
Locals Seek 5th Straight Home Victory: Visitors Boast Lanky Players
The Oshkosh All-Stars, loaded with height, and anxious to get back on the win path after losing to Rochester Tuesday, face Syracuse in a National Basketball game tonight at the Jefferson Street Armory. Syracuse itself is ready for the game and hopes to make Oshkosh its fifth straight home victim. The Syracuse team has been intact for a week in practice sessions and exhibition games in this area, and several players along with Coach Benny Borgmann scouted the All-Stars Tuesday night. John Chaney was absent from drills Tuesday with a slight cold, but he has recovered sufficiently to play tonight. Borgmann is convinced that Syracuse will be forced to make Oshkosh play the Nationals style of game rather than the deliberate technique practiced in the Midwest. He has been working his charges hard on methods of stopping the pivot and double pivot used by the All-Stars. LeRoy Edwards, six foot four inch forward, and Gene Englund, six-five center, have been the most effective inside men for Oshkosh this year, while the play of Clinton Wager in back court has been exceptionally good. Wager also tops the six foot mark by five inches and he specializes in set shots. Syracuse may have to use both John Gee and Mike Novak in the lineup at the same time to offset some of the height of the visitors who do not have a single player on the squad of nine men that fails to reach the six-foot mark. Novak will have the task of stopping Englund, who led the scorers in the Rochester game Tuesday night with 23 points, and if the big Syracusan lives up to his past performances here the visitor may be in for one of his toughest nights of the season. George Nelmark and Jerry Rizzo, both starters for the Nationals tonight, were members if the Syracuse delegation which went to Rochester to scout the All-Stars. Along with Novak, Nelmark and Rizzo, Coach Borgmann is expected to start John “Chick” Meehan and John Chaney but may switch to either Gee or Steve Sharkey if Chaney is not able to play.
Syracuse Herald Journal- Schayes And Seymour Drilling In New York
Nats Topple Royals
The major portion of the Syracuse Nationals basketball squad started a three-day rest today following a 90-85 triumph over Rochester at the War Memorial last night. The Nats are in second place, one-half game behind the loop leading Celtics, but the pressure of a recent losing streak is gone. Victory over the Royals was the second straight for the Syracusans and gave the club a two-game edge over New York. Philadelphia is 4½ games behind the Nats. Paul Seymour and Dolph Schayes are in New York with other members of the NBA All-Star cast. An informal drill was carded today preparatory to tomorrow night’s annual classic. Al Cervi, who also will handle the East team, remained in Syracuse. He will fly to New York tomorrow morning with Syracusans intending to witness the attraction. The Nats swing into action again Wednesday opposing Philadelphia at Hershey, then return home for a game with Boston Thursday. The Celts now have won six in a row. Rugged defensive play marked last night’s tilt and for some time it appeared the Nats might waltz to victory. The Syracusans grabbed a 19-18 lead at the quarter then went in front 44-29 at halftime. At the outset of the final period the margin increased to 18 points at 49-31, but the Rochester began to rally. Les Harrison, Rochester owner-coach, says this will be his final year as mentor of the team. “Next year I’ll either have a former Royal as coach or will use a player-coach.” The Royals attendance has shown a slight gain this year and Harrison hopes for two sellouts prior to the end of the season to break even financially. Red Rocha was surprised after his desperation left-handed heave went through the hoop in the closing minutes. “I knew I had to beat the 24 second clock, and just tossed the ball towards the basket,” he said. Syracuse is passing up an opportunity to get Ken Murray. Philadelphia had placed the player on the waiver list after obtaining him on loan from Baltimore. The waivers on Murray expires at 5 P.M. today.
