BasJ^etball Outfit in Eight Days
G. H. S. broke its losing streak on Friday
night, Jan. 29, by defeating Durham High
in Durham by the score of 32-23. The
game was closely contested throughout and
the good team work of the locals saved the
day. Durham put up a game fight, and at
times showed signs of brilliant playing,
but were helpless to go farther, on account
of the guarding and fine goal shooting of
The first half was easily in G. H. S.’s
favor, the local boys having things pretty
much their own way, and the half ended
with the score 13t8 in G. H. S.’s favor.
However, in the last half both teams be
gan fighting for victory at a greater stride,
and only the well organized team work and
shooting of Britton and Poole put Greens
boro in the lead.
The work of Britton, and Poole at for
ward, and Transou and Ballard at guards
featured lor G. H. S., while White and
Hackney played Durham’s best game.
Line-up as follows:
Poole, l.f.; Britton, r.f.; Daniel, c.; Bal
lard, l.g.; Koenig, r.g. For Durham, Gra

> G. H. S. 27, Raleigh 13.
On Saturday night following G. H. S.’s
victory at Durham, Raleigh went down to
defeat at the hands of the locals, 27-13.
The Raleigh forwards were helpless
throughout the game as a result of the ex
cellent guarding of Ballard and Transou.
The locals were never in danger of losing
the game and some pretty team work was
exhibited. Raleigh lacked team work and
the knack of goal shooting, while Poole and
Daniel of G. H. S. shot almost at will. The
game was clean, only four fouls being call
ed, these being only technical fouls. Poole
had a total of three field goals and three
foul goals to his credit, while Daniel over
shadowed all by getting four field goals;
Ballard made two and Transou three. For
Raleigh, Green scored three field goals and
one foul goal, Bruner, Bynum and Powell
getting one foul goal each.

Poole, l.f.; Britton, r.f.; Daniel, e.; Bal
lard,, l.g. ; Koenig,, r.g. For Raleigh: Green,
l.f; Bruner, r.f; Satterfield, c.; Powell, Ig.;
Substitute: Stafford for Britton.

day, the 30th, after having defeated both
Raleigh and Durham, and met Trinity
Park on the local floor Monday night, win
ning by the close score of 22-20. The game
came next to the Winston game in being
the best game of the season. At no time in
the game could one have prophesied as to
the winner, each team putting up an excel
lent game, displaying nice passing and ex
cellent team work. Trinity gave a clean
exhibition and won the admiration of the
whole student body in that they played a
clean game regardless of the score. For
6. H. S., Britton and Ballard scored the
majority of the 22 points, Stokesberry and
S. Roane featuring for Trinity Park.
The line-up was: Poole, l.f.; Britton,
r.f.; Daniel c.; Ballard, l.g.; Transou, rg.;
Trinity Park : Stokesberry, l.f.; R. Roane,

G. H. S. 31i, Danville 21.
The locals won their fourth straight vic
tory Wednesday night, Feb. 2, by defeat-
ijig the much heralded Danville quint
38-21. Danville had a strong team, but
were inaccurate at shooting goals. G. H.
S. showed pretty passing and at times kept
the ball entirely in their territory. Poole
and Daniel scored six field goals each,
while Britton came next with four, and
Ballard followed with one. For Danville,
Enright was easily the star, getting five
geld goals and nine foul goals. Martin
came next with four field goals, while Tins
ley and Campbell had one each to their
