As a freshman, he was one of the team's better rebounders. In that year, he scored 58 points in 13 games. Used sparingly in 11 contests last season, he added 29 more� yet he should prove to be an offensive asset this year. 1953-1954Freshman from Mandeville, La., where he played for St. Paul's is 6 feet 4 and operates well ether at center or forward.
