Facing the loss of an entire
team, one which had won two
straight conference titles,
"Dukes" Duford sent his last
basketball team on the floor at
St. Ambrose. Six letter-winners,
Bob Carton, Art Moore, Tony
Sacco, Stan Sosnouski, Ben
Kausal, and Jimmy Oakey, from
the 1939 team which won
twenty out of twenty - two
games were at the disposal of
the Bee mentor.
Using only five men, Kausal, Oakey, Moore, Carton, and Vince Henehan,
a freshman, the saints upset a favored Cornell team 30-28 for their first win
of the season. Henehan grabbed a pass in the closing seconds of the tilt and
dribbled the length of the floor to drop in the winning basket.
