From the Florida Times Union, 10/4/1954, page 20

MIMAI, FL, October 3, 1954 - Six Florida colleges have agreed to form a basketball and baseball league and will start playing for championships in the coming basketball season, Athletic Director Jack Harding of the University of Miami has announced.

Harding, who led the move to organize the league, said favorable responses had been received from Florida State, Rollins, Stetson, Florida Southern and Tampa.

An invitation to join the circuit will be sent to the University of Florida, but Harding said it was doubtful that the Gators, with their Southeastern Conference commitments, would be able to schedule enough games with the state teams.

A general meeting will be held soon to complete formal organization of the league, Harding said.

Round robin schedules are planned in both sports.

"A league type competition should increase interest in both basketball and baseball," Harding said.

Ham Wernke, FSU's new freshman cage coach, should provide this year's edition of the Baby Seminoles with plenty of inspiration.

Wernke, a three-time Helms Foundation All-America choice, finished his great career only last year in a blaze of glory. Ham's total points for a career - 1,409 - is an all-time Tribe record.

Ham is 22 years old and is married.
