UNKNOWN [Newspaper Article] — Hoya — 11 February 1960
— _• DI Lk V n ¦ bG I SPORTS EDITOR The Sophomore Jinx , whether it be a myth or a real and effective force , has been recognized in sports circles for quite some time now . We usually associate the so-called jinx with the major professional sports , however , in recent years it has assumed a more universal role . Actually it can be proved that the Jinx , if it does exist , is based more upon real circumstances rather than on any preternatural force . Many second-year men are unaffected by overconfidence and show extraordinary improvement . Practically all agree that it is a valued asset for a team to have played together for at least one full season . Of course , any team will become stronger as the season wears on yet lack of experience as a unit may take its toll in early season contests . In pre-season evaluations , coach Tommy Nolan , along : with . several other observers , was quite concerned _J&amp;ttSB _^ _b _* . ¦ _• _ ¦ - whether or not his sophomore cagers would ...

Stags Topped In Road Tilt [Newspaper Article] — Hoya — 11 February 1960
Stags Topped In Road Tilt In a game marred by excessive fouling and generally sloppy play , Georgetown s Hoyas trampled Fairfield , 9174 , after standing even with the Stags at intermission .

Board men Falter In Boston Star Meets by Joe Lee The three week period from January 16 to February 6 , 1960 , would in the eyes of most observers , be a good one to delete from the annals of Georgetown track history . Five meets were held during that span and , almost without exception , nothing seemed to go right . It all started at the Boston KofC games on the 16 th . The two mile relay team of Al Staebler _, George Verdisco _, Carlos Tan , and Bob Vinton finished a close , but a definite third to Yale and Villanova , in 7 : 44 . 8 , and Sandy Hoddinott , John Butler , Dick Camuso and Jim Kelly lost a heartbreaker in the mile relay to Seton Hall .
