Another name that could be

peppery guard Tom Eveland, not-

Eveland didn't play much last

but will be back at full strength

the competition keen, and that's
good," Strack said, "and from all
appearances we'll be much quicker
than last year, both in the front
and back courts."E

Strack often said last season
that lack of speed and depth were
the main deficits, both of which
seem to be on the way to correc-
tion. The added rebounding power
will also help, but strangely

synthesis of last year's rugged,
bulky, but slow quintet, and the

Strack looks forward to the 1961-
62 season with some hard-earned
valuable experience in his head
and his hopes resting on an inex-
