Game Was Hotly Played and Was Featured by the Work of Reeder
In a very hotly contested game, the University of Tennessee basketball team defeated the Kentucky State five Saturday by the score of twenty-five to twenty-two, making it two in a row from the Kentuckians.
The game was one of the closest played on the local floor in a long time, and the outcome was in doubt until the referee's whistle announced the close of the fray. Although the locals were five points ahead at the close of the first half, the visitors scored six points in the second period in rapid succession, and took the lead. The score at the close of the first half was fifteen to ten. After the first ten minutes of the second half was played, the score was eighteen to seventeen in favor of the Kentuckians.
A difficult goal by Reeder, whose work was the feature of the game, put the locals ahead once more, but Tuttle's goal again gave his team the advantage. Another goal by Reeder, who made sixteen of the twenty-seven points accredited to his team, put the Volunteers in the lead once more, and they were never headed again.
The game was fast and rough, and many fouls were called, sixteen having been called on the visitors, while the locals were charged up with thirteen. Reeder made ten goals from free throws, following called fouls,and shot three goals from the field.
For the visitors, the best work was done by Scott and Tuttle, guards, although Zerfoss, forward, also played an excellent game. The game was attended by a capacity crowd, and much enthusiam was manifested.
