WHAT THEY'RE SAYING ABOUT CHARLIE
WISE
"Pressuring Charlie Wise on a basketball floor is like
challenging Downhill Racer on a pair of bedslots, like
following a maserati in a go-cart, like chasing a rabbit
through a brush fire. Charlie grabs a ball and dribbles tc
enemy, hitting the open man, and
converting pressure into points. On defense, Charlie Wise
does not guard an opponent, he surrounds him. One nighl

21 6-0 155 Guard
Cape May, New Jersey
Senior
Charlie is one of the premier guards
in
the country. He sabotages enemy
offenses with lightening-quick thievery
and brings entire defenses to their knees
with ball-handling wizardry.
An electrifying performer who
on pressure, "Sweet Charlie" is
La Salle's structural leader. He fuels the
Explorer running game and last year
dealt a team-high 128 assists.
The mercurial speedster, always a defensive gadfly, improved his
shooting touch last year and became a long range scoring threat. His
outside scoring added another dimension to a potent Explorer
offense and helped him reap All East, All Big Five, and All ECC
honors. He was also named to both holiday tournament all star
teams.
Charlie has improved his scoring average every year and last
season averaged 13.1 ppg. He scored a career high 25 points against
Texas Tech and established a new La Salle single game record with
13 assists against Memphis State. He also led the Big Five in free
throw accuracy (85.4%).
A former star quarterback at Lower Cape May Regional High,
Charlie was an All South Jersey sensation (coach George Holden).

Glenn emerged as an offensive spark

one of the toughest backcourt defenders
around.
His cat-like quickness and sharp passing eye make Glenn a valuable catalyst
for the Explorer running game. A dangerous shooter, Glenn also penetrates
well and will be counted on to supply
more scoring
this year.
Glenn scored at a 10.2
ppg. clip and his 119 assists were second best on the team, His
career high of 23 points came against Texas Tech.
Defense is Glenn's forte. He usually draws the opponents' top
guard and affords him blanket coverage. His keen knack for anticipation and quick reactions resulted in many steals and fast break
layups.
As a freshman, Glenn led the sub varsity scorers with a 15.9 ppg.

PROSPECTS
On the heels of one of the most successful court campaigns in
La Salle history, coach Paul Westhead, the 1974-75 District II Coach
of the Year, will have ten lettermen and some exciting new faces to
meet this year's challenge. The Explorers should be an interesting
blend of vintage backcourt experience and blossoming frontcourt
talent.
The
Taylor from
departure of frontcourt stalwarts Joe Bryant and Bill
last year's 22-7 NCAA tournament squad will occasion
of strength to the backcourt. Fortunately, the Explorers
are blessed with one of the top guard tandems in the country.
6'0" guard Charlie Wise is a bright star approaching supernova
status. He is a multi-dimensional player whose mere presence disrupts opponent strategies. He can shoot, run, handle flawlessly, and
direct the offense. His backcourt mate, 6'2" Glenn Collier, one of
the most under-rated players in the East, may finally be rewarded
with the attention which his consistent play merits. Both are superlative defensive players, and they complement one another superbly.
The backcourt picture is enhanced by the presence of 6'0"
sophomore Daryle Charles, a superior talent who only needs playing
time to hone his blue chip skills. 6'0" junior Barry Brodzinski, with
his deft outside touch, and 6'0" soph Joe Mihalich, a scrappy hustler, also provide handy depth. Additional help may come from a
6'4" package of exciting potential named Tony Plakis. The sharpshooting freshman who rewrote his high school's scoring records
does everything enthusiastically and well.
Although the backcourt may be the Explorer's strength this
year, the frontcourt is well-stocked with capable hands. 6'5" Mike
Arizin, a transfer from William and Mary with two years of eligibility, should generate plenty of offensive spark with his explosive
outside marksmanship and his effective inside guile. 6'6" sophomore Jim Wolkiewicz impressed everyone with his poise, rebounding, and unselfish play a year ago and just a bit more offensive
inclination would increase the front line's scoring potency and be
a welcome addition. The continued progression of 6"l 1 " junior
Donn Wilber may well be the cornerstone for a successful season.
He has already improved dramatically since his freshman days and
more self-confidence might be the catalyst for a productive campaign in the post.
Again waiting in the wings is 6'8" senior Varick Cutler, who
may finally land a major supporting role. The 6'8" power forward
adds rebounding strength and is an outside shooting threat. 6'6"
sophomore streak shooter Greg Metzinger will also be called upon
to perk up the offense and light rallys off the bench. 6'8" freshman Robert Harvey will answer bullpen calls with increasing frequency in proportion to his maturation, and 6'5" senior John
Connors will again provide swingman depth.
"Our season will depend on how well our frontcourt absorbs the loss of Joe Bryant," says Westhead. "In Mike Arizin,
Donn Wilber, and Jim Wolkiewicz we have talent, but it is a
new combination which might take time to develop. Our backcourt is solid with Charlie Wise and Glenn Collier.
think we
might be a surprise team this year."
Another grueling schedule will pose a burden to the rebuilding Explorers, as they defend their Big Five and ECC titles,
and the front line will have to respond with consistent play in
order to parlay the season into another success story.

THE EXPLORERS'
1974-75
SEASON
IN
REVIEW
La Salle College's 19 74-75 Explorers dropped their final game,
an 87-83 overtime heartbreaker to Syracuse in NCAA first round
action, but still enjoyed one of the most satisfying campaigns in
their colorful court history with a 22-7 record and four major
championships.
Coach Paul Westhead's predominately young club, short in
in desire, won 1 1 straight games at one time and 1 6
of their first 17 to rise as high as seventh in the Associated Press
rankings. They won theDayton Invitational, the Sugar Bowl Classic,
Philadelphia's prestigious Big Five title and the East Coast Conferdepth but long
ence Championship.
Eight of La Salle's
victims
later
participated
in
either the
NCAA or NIT Tournaments. The Explorers beat Southeastern Conco-champion Alabama, Ivy League winner Pennsylvania,
Southern Conference titlist Furman, Atlantic Coast Conference
contender Clemson, Southwest Conference runnerup Texas Tech
and such highly-regarded independents as Holy Cross, Memphis
State, Lafayette, Duquesne, and Niagara.
As a team, La Salle finished with highest field goal (49.2%)
and free throw (72.7%) shooting percentages in history. Only five
La Salle teams won more games than the 1974-75 Explorers, and
only one of them, the great 23-1 club of 1968-69, have done better
La Salle to the NCAA
in the twenty years since Tom Gola led
crown in 1954 and national runnerup honors the following season.
"The 19 74-75 season was certainly a positive experience for
us," said Westhead. "We achieved just about everything we aspired
to do. We did well on the road, winning two holiday tournaments,
then we came home to go unbeaten in the Big Five, win our conference, and make the NCAA's."
The Explorers got outstanding season-long performances from
6-10 junior forward Joe Bryant, an Associated Press honorable
mention All America from Philadelphia; 6-5 forward and captain
Billy Taylor; the MVP of the Sugar Bowl from Tuckegee, Ala.;
and the dazzling backcourt combination of 6 -0 Charlie Wise, of
Cape May, N.J., and 6-2 Glenn Collier, of Philadelphia.
Bryant a first round NBA hardship draft pick, led the
Explorers in scoring (2 1 .8 ), rebounding (1 1 .4 and field goal shooting (51.7%), and absolutely dominated the action on numerous
occasions. He scored a career total of 1,118 points, something
that only four others in history have done in their first two
years--Gola, Ken Durrett, Hubie Marshall, and Bobby Fields.
"JB" hit double figures in 53 of his 55 varsity games and surpassed 20 points 29 times. His seasonal high was 34 points at
Memphis State. Bryant's career highs were 37 points in 1973-74
against Rider and 19 rebounds last year against Temple. He made
his first 11 shots in the first American U. game and finished 15
for 1 8 from the field.
Taylor, the only senior on the team, finished his spectacularlyference
)
consistent career in fourth place among the college's all-time
scorers with 1,554 points. He hit double figures in 80 of 82 varsity
games, including 35 games in excess of 20 points.
Taylor finished as the team's second leading scorer with 19.3
ppg. He saved his best output of the year (32 points) for the ECC
Championship game against Lafayette although his career high of
39 came against American U. in 1973-74 Noted for his picturesque
jump shot, Taylor won a host of individual honors including slots
on the Dayton Invitational All-Tourney Team and slots on the Big
Five and East Coast Conference All-Star squads two years in a row.
Wise, one of the quickest guards around, averaged 13.1 ppg,
and finished as one of the nation's best free throw shooters (85.4%).
At one point during the season he converted 25 in a row. He led the
Explorers in assists (high of 1 3 at Memphis State, broke single game
La Salle record) and his a career high of 25 points against Texas
Tech. He made both Holiday Tourney All-Star teams last year.
Collier was, perhaps, the most under-rated player in the East.
Most of the time he was La Salle's "stopper," guarding the top
opposing scorer and usually doing it well. He averaged 10. 2 ppg.
with a career of 23 against Clemson, a performance that earned him
a spot on the Dayton Invitational team.
Other significant performances this year came from Jim
Wolkiewicz, a 6-6 freshman forward from Philadelphia; Donn
Wilber, a 6-10 sophomore center from Radnor, Pa., and Barry
Brodzinski, a 6 -0 guard from Philadelphia.
Wolkiewicz, who finally earned a starting position late in the
season, played key defensive and rebounding roles in victories
.
over Penn and Bucknell. La Salle's second-leading rebounder, he
fractured his jaw in a freak dormitory accident two days before the
NCAA game with Syracuse and his loss was severely felt against the
Orangemen. Jim's career highs were 12 points against Rutgers and
15 rebounds against Bucknell.
Wilber, a much-improved player, started much of the season
and sparkled in back-to-back games when he scored 18 points in
the second half at Syracuse and then hit 12 of 16 from the field
for a career high of 26 at Drexel. Brodzinski's best performance
came at Memphis State when he calmly converted seven clutch
free throws to preserve La Salle's lead.
EXPLORER NOTES
Other members of the Explorers were Gregg Metzinger, a 6-5
freshman from Barrington, N.J., who appeared in 20 games and
a high of nine points against West Chester; Varick Cutler,
a 6-8 junior from North Tonawanda, N.Y., who transferred from
the University of Maryland and played in 14 games, saw more key
action toward the end of the season; Daryle Charles, a 6 -0 freshman
from Jersey City, N.J.; John Connors, a 6 -3 junior from Drexel Hill,
Pa., and Joe Mihalich, a 6 -0 freshman from Philadelphia.

EAST COST CONFERENCE HISTORY
The East Coast Conference, formerly the University Division
of the
Middle Atlantic Conference, began operation in July of 1974. There
is East and West division competition in all team sports with conference champions moving on to NCAA competition.
East division
St. Joseph's,
members include American, Drexel, Hofstra, LaSalle,
and Temple. The West will have Bucknell, Delaware,
Lafayette, Lehigh, Rider, and West Chester.
The conference will conduct competition in 11 sports — soccer,
cross country, basketball, swimming, wrestling, indoor track, baseball, golf, tennis, track, and lacrosse. Each conference member must
field teams in at least seven varsity sports.
Conference athletic directors feel the new conference will function
more effectively from the financial, administrative, and organizational standpoint than it was able to do under the umbrella of the
38 school Middle Atlantic Collegiate Athletic Conference.
All
members
twelve schools are
of the Eastern Collegiate Athletic
Conference and the National Collegiate Athletic Association, competing for the most part in Division One competition.

THE LA SALLE
STORY
Brother Daniel Burke,
F.S.C., Ph.D.
President, La Salle College
La Salle College,
now
in
its
112th year of service to higher education
and the Philadelphia Community, was founded March 20, 1863 by the
Brothers of the Christian Schools and derives its name from the founder
of the Christian Brothers, St.
John Baptist de La
Salle.
1929, having outgrown three previous Philadelphia locations, the
campus was moved to its present site at 20th and Olney Avenue in the
East Germantown section of the city.
In
Since 1945, La Salle has experienced dramatic growth. Before
closing days of the war, the college had an enrollment of less than
the
500
attending classes in plant facilities valued at only $1.5 million. Today,
6300 day and evening division students attend classes on La Salle's
40-acre campus, appraised at $30 million.
