The Tigers faced a mighty task entering the 1931-1932 season.  Defending the two-time conference championship would be a mighty task.  Coach Evan O. Williams was up to the task of molding the young men into contenders.

The Tigers opened the season with a non-conference game against DeLaSalle.  The Islanders put up a good fight during this close game.  The teams went back and forth.  Unfortunately for the Tigers, they were stranded on a desert island, losing by one point.

In the first conference game, the Tigers took on Roosevelt.  Roosevelt did not put up much of a fight as the Tigers won 29-12. 

Against West, Wally Herkal led the way as the Tigers again won, this time doubling up West 34-17. 

Edison came next.  This game was very close.  Going into the final seconds of the game, Edison made a  shot giving the Tommies a 24-22.  Against North, the same scenario played out.  The Polars won by two points, 19-17. 

South scored its third win of the season beating Marshall 22-17.  This too was a close game.

The game against Central was anyone’s to win.  The teams went back and forth, exchanging the lead.  Central was the team in the lead when the game ended and won 18-17.

South finished their season against Washburn.  The Millers led the entire game.  South did close the difference to one point in the second half, but it was too little too late as the Millers won 23-19.

After the season, Coach Williams announced he was resigning as coach and teacher at South to become the Athletic Director at Drake College in Iowa.
