Game Writeup - Virginia Military Student paper "the Cadet"
On Jan. 24th the V.M.I. quint met the University of Kentucky, defeating them by the decisive score of 32 to 18. The team showed marked improvement in every department, particularly in passing and shooting baskets, and from present indications needs only practice to develop into a most formidable aggregation for the remaining important games. The visitors put up a hard fight throughout, contesting every point. It is difficult to pick out any particular stars, the whole team playing fast and consistently together. Captain Lowry at forward, was however, the back bone of the team, with Clarkson right on the job as usual. Schwalb was all over the floor and Fetterolf shot well. For the visitors, Tom Zerfoss and Preston played well. A feature of the game was Captain Brumage's familiar face and voice on the sidelines.
