BLUE GRASS FIVE BEATEN
DePauw Takes Hard Game From Kentucky State by 28 to 16 Score
MAKES THIRD STRAIGHT VICTORY
In a hard, rough and exciting game, DePauw defeated the strong Kentucky team last night by a score of 28 to 16.
The Kentucky State team was anything but a cinch. Their men were fast, and had the science of the game reduced well. Clever plays throughout the game gave them several shorts at the baskets, but they seemed unable to make them stick.
DePauw's showing was exceptional. Every man on the team got into it in a way that was right. Walker is fast developing into a star center. He has the jump, and covers the pivot position in good shape. The forwards were good as usual. Dale, still on the job, slipped five in from the field. Capt. Crick was a sure hand at the free throws, making eight, which was a majority of those tried. Grady and Hardin at the guard positions, did the right kind of work for DePauw, as the Kentucky State score will indicate. Grady was fast and furious, and aside from guarding his man in good shape, found time to slip up the field ever once in a while, and drop the ball into the net. Pierson and Wolf got into the game in the last half, and played good straight basketball.
The outcome of the is game certainly looks good for DePauw. This is the third victory in almost as many days, and all of them decisive. With a lead like this, and the team in the best shape it has seen for many moons, it seems that the onward march toward the title of the state is clear. At any rate, DePauw cannot but to a strong bidder for this honor at the last of the season.
