Rumors that visiting basketball teams dont like to
play at Florida Gym because of the wild crowds, is
completely unfounded according to Coach Jim McCach McCachren
ren McCachren freshman basketball coach.
McCachren said he had heard
no opponent complain about the
fans, even through paper has
been thrown on the court during
several games. In this respect,
McCachren said, the crowd was
a little unruly, and could get a
technical foul called on it.
The referees have the au authority
thority authority to penalize the fans if
they get out of hand, by charg chargtog
tog chargtog it with a technical fool, 1
said McCachren. This could
be disastrous if it is a close
game, and near toe finish.**
Also, MaGachren said, the ref referees
erees referees can, if they feel it is neces necessary,
sary, necessary, call the game off and for forfeit
feit forfeit the game to the other team.
McCachren said Florida, like
any other team, would rather
the Sorority League with two
games, the first at 4:30 and the
second at 6:30, scheduled each
afternoon Monday Thursday on
the Norman Courts. Monday, Jan January
