Petrel Basketball String At 13 Wins In A Row
The Oglethorpe basketball team is
riding high at press time. Coach Gar-
land Pinholster's Petrels have amassed
thirteen wins against no defeats and
are ranked number six by the United
Press International Board of Coaches
in the College Division national poll.
In the last issue, we capsuled the
first four contests. Here's the storv on
the remainder of the games to date:
Oglethorpe 74 Southwest Texas State 52
President L\ndon Johnson did not carry
Georgia in the 1964 election and his alma
mater failed against Oglethorpe. The Petrels
were in command all the way, roaring to a
34-19 halftime lead. Jerry Sams and Roger
Littell tied for high scoring honors with
IS points apiece. J. P. Bruzek, a freshman
chipped in 12 points.
Dong Ale.xander got 22 points to pace
Doug A le.\ander
to a win over a good Pfeiffer
team. The Doraville
sophomore had a per-
fect night at the free
throw line with 8 otit
of 8. Oglethorpe led
35-.32 at the half and
had several anxious
moments late in the
contest before pulling
out the win. Three
other Petrels scored in
double figures. Jerry
Sams had 18 points
followed by Walker
Heard and Roger Littell with a dozen each.
Oglethorpe 58 Belmont College 44
Roimd Two of the Oglethorpe invitational
found teacher going against pupil, as Wayne
Dobbs, '61, a former Petrel standout sent
his Belmont team against the Old Master,
Coach Pinholster. Dobbs won the first half
27-24, but the Stormiest Petrel of Them
All won the second half and the ball game.
The Belmont cause became serious when
Charlie Meisel. their ace guard who scored
a game high 21 points, fouled out with 7
minutes remaining. Walker Heard was the
big Petrel with 19 points, followed by Doug
Ale.xander with 13 points and Jerry Sams
with 10. Thus, Oglethorpe won it's own In-
vitational Tournament for the 5th time in
Oglethorpe 81 Macalester (Minn.) 41
Oglethorpe doubled the rebounds plus one
against Macalester, 37-18 and played a sterl-
ing defensive game in derailing the Scots.
For the second straight time. Walker Heard
was the scorer with 18 points followed by
Roger Littell with 14 and Jerry Sams with 12.

Oglethorpe 84 Hanover (Ind.) 51
The Petrels greeted the New Year with
a stunning victory over Hanover. Five play-
ers made double figvires with Roger LittelTs
16 leading the way. Walker Heard had 15,
Jerry Sams scored 13 and grabbed 11 re-
bounds, freshman Jim Hoggarth had 12
points and Dong Alexander netted 10. Ogle-
thorpe led at halftime, 42-32.
Oglethorpe 101 Greenville (III.) 51
In their largest point output of the season,
Oglethorpe literally swamped the Illinois
team. The Petrels had their best single half
of the season also, scoring 55 points while
holding Greenville to 28. It was a Cakewalk
during the second half, as Oglethorpe topped
the century mark for the first time this sea-
son. Roger Littell was top gun with 26
points. Jerry Sams had 21 markers.
Oglethorpe 71 Georgia Southern 67
The Petrels treated an overflow Home-
coming crowd of 2500 to an exciting win
over arch-rival Geor-
gia Southern. The
game was close for
the first ten minutes
and then the Petrels
threatened to break it
wide open, rushing to
a 43-33 lead at the
half. In the second
half, Georgia South-
ern chipped away at
the Oglethorpe lead,
and a near-cardiac sit-
uation developed with
one minute to play as the Eagles tied the
score at 67 — all. Doug Alexander coolly
broke the tie « ith 2 free throws and Wayne
Johnson iced the game with two more. Jerry
Sams led the scoring with 17 points. Alex-
ander and Roger Littell had 14 points each.
Walker Heard and Sams played the boards
well and Heard was most instrumental in
holding Bill Pickens. 6-9 Eagle center to 5
points. A return match will be played on
February 12 in Statesboro.
Oglethorpe 92 Chattanooga 71
The Petrels had to fight hard for this one.
in a game a lot closer than the final score
indicates. The halftime
saw Oglethorpe lead-
ing 42-33, but Chat-
tanooga closed the gap
quickly early in the
second half and stayed
tenaciously close until
five minutes from the
end. when the Petrels
broke it open. Roger
Littell scored 19
points, Jerry Sams and
Bill Garrigan. 16 each,
and Doug Alexander
and Jim Hoggarth had 12 apiece. Walker
Heard collected 12 rebounds in addition to
his 1 1 points.
Oglethorpe 99 Spring Hill 92
A tall and well-staffed Spring Hill club
came to Oglethorpe and gave the Petrels
a whale of a ball game. Using two platoons
effectively, Spring Hill clawed at the Petrels
and came within a point at 92-91 with a
minute left to play. Once again the Petrels
had what it took at the free throw line with
Bill Garrigan effective in the late going.
Walker Heard's 24 points were the game
high and a step ahead of Roger Littell's 23.
tiarrigan had 17. and Jerry Sams 16 points
and 11 rebounds.
