       LEAGUE PLAYER OF YEAR LAURELS FOR 19 48
           I t was impossible for members of All Southern California Board of Basketball
       to choose between Garfield's Jack Nelsen, and Jordan's Rufus Johnson, for All-
       Eastern League Player of the Year honors. Both were selected.
           Nelsen was high scorer of the City, with 175 points, and Johnson followed
       closely behind v»ith 172. In one game, against Riis, Nelsen hit the hoop for 33
       points.        Johnson, playing with a weak team, was practically a one-man show. He
       bucketed 28 against Huntington Park, and 27 against Riis.
           Three Juniors gained places on the All-Eastern — Hollis Pincock, Huntington
       Park, a center but shifted t o forward by the Board; Bernard Baker, high-scoring
       Huntington Park guard, and Rufus Johnson. Johnson, however, won't be eligible
       next season,                                                        •
           A t r i o of the All-Easterns were centers — Pincock, Johnson, and Dick Chapman.
     • The l e t t e r operated at both center and gucrd. Craven, on the second team, was
       also a center, but was shifted to a guard assignment by the Board of Basketball,
