Since 1945, La Salle has experienced the most dramatic
period of expansion in its history. Present enrollment in
both Day and Evening Divisions is nearly 5000 students,
as compared to 1940 enrollment of about 400. In the last
15 years, ten new buildings have been added to the campus.
Both the Day and Evening Divisions offer degree
programs in Arts and Sciences and Business Administration.
Six modern residence halls accommodate over 400 out

Before being graduated from Villanova in

Football, however, is only part of the story of Jim Henry, for he
is a man devoted not merely to a single sport, but to athletics and
what college athletics stand for. In his 32 years at La Salle, he
has given of his time and energy equally for all sports; he coached
the 1931 Explorer basketball team to a 15-4 record and started
grid contests,

PROSPECTS FOR THE SEASON
By Coach Dudey Moore
Seldom has
a college basketball team had more quesmarks than my predominantly young 1962-63 Explorer
squad. The condition of co-captain Billy Raftery, the development of our untested sophomores, and the improvement shown by our veteran starters, will all determine La
tion
Salle's success this season.
Of course, the major "if" concerns Raftery, the fine 6-4
guard who had a real good sophomore year (17.8 average)
and then was sidelined last season after undergoing a back
operation. At the present time, it remains to be seen
whether Billy's back is strong enough to withstand the
punishment of a full season. He is such a fine all-around
player, that his physical condition definitely holds the key
to the situation.
look for our three veteran starters, guard and cocaptain Tony Abbott, forward Frank Corace and 6-8
center Walt Sampson, to become more consistent and
take up the scoring slack left by the graduation of guard
Bob McAteer, who led the team in scoring with 543 points.
Abbott did a good job in Raftery's back-court spot last
year, developing into a real sparkplug.
I
With added experience and confidence, Corace should
be one of our chief offensive threats as well as a dependable rebounder. He was second in both departments a
year ago, averaging over 15 points a game. Sampson
came along well toward the end of last season ana we
are hoping that he can pick up where he left off, especially
in
the rebounding department.
our inexperienced sophomores, who
comprise over half the squad. Either 6-7 center George
Sutor or 6-4 forward Al Tezsla may move into the starting
lineup. Sutor could develop into a real good collegiate
performer with experience. Tezsla is exceptionally strong
under the boards, but needs a little more work on his
shooting. Guards Joe Cunnane and John Hart will, probably, be our chief backcourt reserves, and one of them
could start if anything happens to Abbott or Raftery.
Cunnane didn't score too much as a freshman, but possibly has more potential than any of our young guards.
Much depends on
Other reserves include forwards Harry Carpenter, Gene
Jim Flavin and Joe Lynch and guards Paul Gallagher
and Tim Daly. Carpenter has been a pleasant surprise so

Quakers' full-court press. Gene's best game

Co-captain. Possessor of the coolest head
and hottest hand on any court when he's
physically fit, Bill hopes to write Philadelphia's
"Comeback
Story of the Year" this season.
His basketball career (and La Salle's tourney
hopes) suffered a cruel setback last year
when he painfully hobbled through four early
games before undergoing a serious operation
to remove a ruptured disc in his back. Touted
as another Tom Gola before he ever played
a varsity game, Bill's initial season was a
slight "disappointment"
to
some people,
despite the fact that he did everything well and took team scoring
honors with 392 points and a 17.8 average. Only Gola did better for
a sophomore at La Salle. Equally adept anywhere on the court, Bill's
value cannot be measured by statistics alone. He is the ideal team
player whose "steadying" influence on teammates is immeasurable.
His collegiate high is 31 points scored against Muhlenberg two years
ago. Last season, his best was 10 in less than a half of action against
Niagara. Everyone's Scholastic All American choice at St. Cecelia's
High, Bill broke three New Jersey Schoolboy scoring marks. He also
earned All State recognition in soccer and baseball. At the moment,

did come back with 17 points during a 20 minute stint in last spring's
Varsity-1952 N.I.T. Champions' Alumni Game. The President of his
Senior class, and an above average student, Bill is majoring in
Social Studies.
