Women's Indoor Basketball

Women's Indoor Basketball

Basketball has been stronger this year with two teams in the local competitions but unfortunately because of tonsils, T.C. committments, etc., the team will not be the best offering. Tournament experience should, however, develop the potential talent of some of the newer players.

A. Truscott: Newcomer to Indoor; intercepts well and is keen and fit.

P. Gamble: Has played little basketball this season but still shoots well.

M. Edwards: A doubtful starter, quite the fittest member of the team.

P. McMillan: Has height to be an excellent guard and rebounds well.

J. Gorman: Another tall guard who will do well if she overcomes a tendency to foul.

J. Readman: A tough attacking player, should score some points.

M. Elms: The strongest and most experienced player in the team; a Southland, Canterbury and N.Z.U. rep. and the highest scorer for Varsity this season.

S. Croll: Follows Margaret in number of points scored this season. A rep trialist.

Although not as strong a team as has represented Canterbury University in the past, there is little doubt that this year's team will at least gain a reputation as "social shooters". With one exception, all the members have been initiated into the rigours of Tournament and their shooting should not be unduly affected by allied functions.

The team is as follows: P. Collins, P. Dahm, K. Kibblewhite, J. Neale and P. Quigley.
