Quaker Team Upsets Dope By
Outclassing Duke 35-30
And Defeating Wake
Lose tot Salisbury "¥" Lenoir -Rhyne
The Guilford College basketball
team has finally got down to business
and it acheived appreciable results
in last week's schedule of games.
The Quaker Warriors stalked the
Blue Devils in their home wigwams
Monday night and came away with
the scalp of this member of the '"Big
, Five." The score was 35 to 30 in
Guilford's favor. Not satisfied with
their collection of "Blue Devils" hair,
the Quakers went gunning for some
Deacon's hats at Wake Forest. Here
they got used up rather roughly but
came away victors by the score of
22 to 21. In the latter end of the
week's schedule, however, the team
met with reverses and lost to Salis
bury Y. M. C. A. 31 to 25. to Lenoir-
Rhyne 18 to 12, and to Davidson 38
WIN OVER DUKE
i For the first time in many years
! Guilford College defeated Duke Uni
versity last Monday night. The
Quakers started and landed in whirl
wind fashion, completely out playing
the Duke team. The final score was
35 to 30. The Guilford team played
a superior brand of basketball through
out the game and never for a single
time was the Duke team ahead.
Starting a fast and aggressive game
it was fully five minutes before Duke
made a point. The Duke team be
wildered by the spread of the Guil
ford forwards played a ragged and
hopeless game. Smith and Ferrell,
Guilford forwards, raced down the
court time after time to place the
ball in the magic hoop. The Guil
i ford guards, Coltrane, and Tew, held
| the Methodist forwards practically
I helpless. Moore played a fast and
| smooth game and was second highest
Bullock, Duke's star forward got
into the game late but registered
| twelve points. He, alone, was the
shining light for Duke.
I In foul shooting Guilford out
j classed their opponents, shooting 10
i out of 15 chances, while Duke scored
' only 6 out of 18.
Duke used numerous substitutes but
all to no avail, for the game was
| Guilford's from start to finish.
