The 1940-41 cagers

The 1940-41 cagers

On this day 74 years ago, the basketball team avenged an early season, two-point loss to Patchogue in a 33-29 victory.

“Long” Bill Bowdler led the scoring with 11 points while John Ryder added 8. Captain Phil Ahrenhold and Dick Shaughnessy anchored the stingy Blur and White defense.

The Ruffner five in this game exhibited their power by executing a number of fast-breaking, coordinating and sensational plays which brought the spectators to their feet with excitement.
