Hugh Taylor

Nice Dan, However, Who held Davidson to 3 points? Probably Sir Ed from the house of Davis. He was always proud of his defense.
Still, lets play our game over.

Pat Jensen

What accounted for such a low score as 41-38? Ten points in a quarter? Great defense? Stalling tactics? Was Clear Creek AAA at the time?

Dan Jensen

Hugh, I asked Sir Edward about Davidson and he could not remember if he guarded him or not. I have asked him for permission to repeat his response on a blog thread that I want to author about sterling defensive efforts on other team's stars. Stay tuned.

Pat, good question about the low score and I don't know the answer. Maybe just poor shooting by our guards who hit only 10 of 34 from the field. Post players did fine as Hugh Taylor was 3 of 4 and Charlie Milligan 4 of 8.

A guard trio of Edward Davis, Bennie Lenox and Paul Timmins wouldn't scare anybody. (Bennie must not read this blog or surely he would have responded to some of my jabs.)

Hugh Taylor

Pat, Creek was still AA thru 59.

Dan Jensen

We moved to 3A for the 1960-61 sports season. Someone else can tell us when we went to 4A.

Of course, most everyone moved up a class one year in a general reorganization. I'm not sure where we were on that.

One need for this site is some younger historians.

Dan Jensen

Hugh, as I think about a thread about some of our guys defending an opposing star, I doubt that it would go very far. We have too many of those kind of threads already.

Devine's Tinker Davidson was not some super star but he was a good player. He only shot six times so somebody must have been in his face a lot.

A better example would be another regional matchup, this one against Karnes City in 1958. H. O. Muecke had been averaging in the high 20s as I remember and Chuck Trcka held him to 9 points on 3 of 12 shooting. Chuck scored 25 as we won, 73-51. (By the way, some guy named Edward Davis had 17 points on 6 of 10 from the floor and 5 of 5 from the line.)

I would be glad for some of you to share other good defensive games by individuals.

Dan Jensen

Does anyone remember how far we were behind when James Davis fouled out in that first Devine game? Coach? Robert Brown? Lynn Davis? Anyone?

Coach Carlisle at Southwest Texas

  • Coach and Basketball - Senior Year
    The photos in this album are taken from the yearbook, entitled The Pedagog, from Southwest Texas State University in San Marcos for the 1948/49 school year. Coach Carlisle was a senior that year. The photos tell a story of a very accomplished and talented athlete but also a person who had many other outstanding attributes as well. Thanks for Peggy Carlisle for supplying the yearbook from which these photos were taken.
