GEORGETOWN WINS BALL GAME
The first basket ball game ever played at State College took place yesterday afternoon between Georgetown College and State College teams. The latter team was defeated by a score of 15 to 6, when the game began at 4 o'clock the gymnasium was packed with rooters for the two teams who continually applauded the brilliant plays of their respective colleges. The initial game was a success in every particular. The game was very interesting and both teams gave an excellent exhibition of basket ball playing. Georgetown had the advantage on account of having been in training since last fall and having played a number of games, while the local team had had only a few days' practice. The cadets said the visitors were perfect gentlemen and played clean ball. At the contest last night they continually gave one another's college yells.
Georgetown chartered two cars and brought about fifty of the Rucker Hall girls, which probably caused the boys to win.
Game Writeup - The Georgetonian (March 1903)
The third game of the basket ball of the season was played at the State College gymnasium between Georgetown College and State College on February 6th, at 3 p.m. On account of the State Intercollegiate Declamatory Contest which was held that evening a large crowd of students from the different colleges of Kentucky witnessed the game and saw Georgetown defeat State by a score of 17 to 6. At the end of the first half the score stood 8 to 1 in favor of G.C. S.C.'s team executed splendid team work, but their forwards were unable to throw goals successfully. About one hundred and fifty students from Georgetown, including the young ladies from Rucker Hall, saw the game and remained over for the contest that evening.
