STATE FALLS BEFORE THE WESLEYAN TEAM
Blue and White Defeat In Winchester By the Score of 25 to 19
WINCHESTER, Ky., Jan. 27 -- The largest number of people who have seen a basketball in Winchester this year saw Kentucky Wesleyan defeat the State University of Kentucky tonight in the Auditorium, 25 to 19. The battle was about the hardest and fastest that ever took place here, but there was no ill feeling displayed by either team.
Few fouls were committed and the team work of both aggregations was the feature, no spectacular work being done by any player in particular.
Game Writeup - The Idea
Old man "Inability to throw baskets," and poor refereeing lost State's second collegiate game 23-19. Last Friday our boys left the gym building at 5:30 in two powerful automobiles for Winchester where they met and lost to the Kentucky Wesleyan five not because of inferior playing, but because the referee was a man who, had been coaching a girls' team and who insisted on playing girls' rules. State's men showed vast improvement in team work and all around playing but time after time just after a basket had been thrown or a man was unguarded under the basket ready to throw one the referee's whistle would sound invariably, not counting the goal and allowing Wesleyan a free throw for the goal. Is it to be wondered at the result. When they threw eleven of these ? It was more of a contest of overcoming Wesleyan's fouls than anything else. At the end of the first period the score stood 17-11 in Wesleyan's favor but our men came back strong in the last half and ran the score up to 20-17 until a few minutes before the end of play, when Wesleyan added three more points to our two. If the authorities at Winchester insist on treating opposing teams this way, it is only a question of time when they won't be able to play any teams in Kentucky. Harrison and Hart starred for State while Hendrix excelled for Wesleyan. Next Saturday State lines up against the fast quintet from Bethany and a close game is expected. This is the last game we play before leaving on the Northern trip, which begins February 9.
The following men made the trip: Hart, Marx, Harrison, Campbell, Preston, Gaiser, Redd, Beatty, Farmer.

K.W.C. SCALPS STATE BOYS
Beats the Fast University Team Friday Night at the Auditorium by 25 to 19
Wesleyan added another scalp to her belt Friday night when she took the fast State university team into camp to the tune of 25 to 19. the game was clean and fast from start to finish. The rough work that was so conspicuous in the High school game was lacking. The State men were determined to win but did not lose their heads and resort to unfair tactics when they saw defeat staring them in the face.
The visitors were bigger and heavier than the local men but the speed and team work of the Purple was more than enough to offset that. Henry put up one of the classiest exhibitions that has ever been seen on the local floor. His goal shooting from fouls and from the field was disconcerting to the State team. Pike put up his usual good game and Hunt in spite of an injury to his ankle early in the game, played all around his man. Eagle was as a stone wall on defense and broke up everything that came his way. Coffman played his first game and shows promise of being a good man. In the second half when he stuck to his man instead of covering the floor his work was as good as could be desired of a new man.
All of State's men played hard until the whistle was blown at the end of the game. At one point in the second half the visitors clearly outplayed the locals. However, the home team pulled together and won out handily. They took the lead from the start and were never headed.
Time of halves 20 minutes. Referee. Dr. Elliot of Lexington. Umpire, Dalgety of Winchester, Timer: Philips of Winchester. Final score Wesleyan 25, Sate 19.
