Sports Staff Writer
A grand total ol 35 men
gained recognition today as
members of the 1954 Intramural
Independent Basketball team
Players from 19 of the 44 teams
competing in the Independent
Leagues make up this years
select group as chosen by the
teams themselves.
The All-University champions
the Dubbers led the way ' with
six men on the first four teams,
This is a surprising situation, hut
is indicative of the bench
strength that the champions bad.
Bob Pelligrino, the Dubbers s
lightening-fast forward from
Broadview, 111., was the top vote
getter of the 68 men who were
honored on the ballots. Follow
ing close behind Pelligrino v as
his teammate. Chuck Jensen,
who is the only holdover from
last year's squad.
Jensen's long side shots
coupled with Pelligrino's drive
ins gave the Dubbers the most
potent one-two combination in
play this year. Jensen toured the
courts for the Pansies last year,
a team he led to the semifinals.
Pelligrino was a hot-and-rold
shooter, but he hit below 10
points only four times this sea
son and he found the eye on one
occasion to score 32 markers for
top one-game honors in two de
partments, most points in one
game and the most field goals
in one game (16).
JOINING Pelligrino and Jen
sen on the mythical team was
Bob Baker of the Freshman
Dents. Baker normally played

forward but he was placed at
center because of his 6-2 fmme,
the tallest on the first five.
Baker probably has the most
basketball savvy of the team due
to his former playing with the
Chadron Eagles in the NCC loop
and his present-season hookup
with Bus Whitehead's AAU
Storz team.
Kenny Johnson who led a
mediocre Olive Oilers team
joins Pelligrino at the other for
ward slot while Pev Evans of the
potent Ramblers provided the
weight at the other guard posi
tion. Johnson traveled at a 15.9
points per game average to end
up fourth in the All-U scoring
and third in Independent point
making. He has equal ability to
shoot from the left or right side.

Evans, though possessing a
sufficient amount of bulk, can
move with amazing ease and
would be able to team up wth
Baker as the two workhorses
under the boards.
THE FROSH Dents, Dubbers
and Ramblers each placed a
man on the second five along
with the Gents and the Hoop
sters. LaVerne Torczon, top Inde
pendent scorer for the current
season, led his team with good
rebounding and a multitude of
tip-in shots. His height, com
bined with forwards Gary
Heinzle of the Dents and Keith
Clouse of the Dubbers, would
give the second team a slightly
taller team than the first five.

playoffs where they faltered by
forfeiting to the Ramblers. His
long shots combined with the
Rambler's Dirkes Ralston's short
drives would keep any defense
loose. Ralston, the shortstuff of
the first four teams could prob
ably qualify as the fastest man
on the honor roll.
Phil Haas, an All-Independent
selection in 1952, assumed the
roll of a team man this year to
feed his more prolific team
