TranscriptSalukis to Close Season Tonight with Centenary

Coach Jack Hartman and his Saluki cagers will close out an inconsistent season tonight when they host Centenary College at 8 in the Arena.
The Salukis went into this season with 20 consecutive victories and made it 22 whon they defeated MacMurray and Sam Huston State.
After Falling to Iowa, Southem downed Arizona State before two consecutive defeats at the hands of Arizona and San Francisco, the latter in the opening round of the Sun Carnival in El
Paso, Texas.
A win over Maryland in the consolation game of that tournament snapped the loss skid.
After a loss to lndiana State, a win over Oglethorpe started the SIU cagers on a five-game win streak that was stopped by Evansville.
Then SIU lost five straight before downing Southwest Missouri State at Springfield.
Going into tonight's game the Salukis can boast two wins in the last four games and a 12-11 record.
Centenary, nicknamed the Gentlemen, has had problems of its own this season with a 3-22 record. The lost defeat was at the hands of NIT-
bound Oklahoma City, 114-95, Wednesday.
The Gentlemen will start 6-7 sophomore Rohert Lang at the pivot, John Weston, 6-7, and Dwayne McAfee, 6-5, at the corners and 6-foot John Blankenship at one guard spot. The remaining guard spot will be filled by Larrry Ward or Mike Tebbe.
Lang in the team's leading scorer averaging 20, 7 points per game, with Blankenship and Weston averaging 12.6 and 13.5 respectively.
The high-scoring Lang is also the top rebounder on the team as he has taken down an average of 11.6 a game, Wenton is second in that department with a 9.6 average.
Although the Gentlemen show a poor record, they rate as a major college and schedule Buch opponents as Houston University of Oklahoma, Baylor, University of Arkansas, Taxas Tech, and Oklahoma City.
After a discouraging loss to Kentucky Wesleyan when three controvernial technical fouls led to the defeat Wednesday night, Hartman and his forces will have to regroup for the game tonight with the name starting lineup.
Dick Garrett and Chuck Benson will man the forward spots, Howard Keene will be the center, and Craig Taylor and Willie Griffin will be at the guard spots.
