Photograph article dated February 22, 1963 partially reads, "Thanks to a regular bench jockey, Pierce College's basketball team is champion of the Western State Conference... Pierce knocked off second place Harbor College, 74-67, Thursday night, with Vigeant coming through like an old pro under the pressure." Photograph caption reads, "Harbor College's Al Ryan (33) rebounds, but he's not alone - Teammate Jim Leslie, right, struggles for ball. So does Pierce's Tony Oddo (14)."
