STATE BEATS VANDY 36-24 IN FAST GAME
Clever Work of Tuttle, Zerfoss, Server and Davidson Feature
With the defeat of the previous night starting Kentucky State in the face, she came back strong last night and won the second basketball game from Vanderbilt by the score of 36 to 24 at the Woodland Auditorium. Vanderbilt played a good, consistent game, but was unable to overcome the superior goal throwing of Tuttle, Zerfoss and Server. Captain Davidson played his usual star game for "Vandy," scoring sixteen of the visitors' points. He seemed to be able to locate the basket from most any position.
Captain Morgan was unable to play on account of injuries received in the game Friday night. Tuttle was played at forward and it seemed to be the place for him. Gumbert went in at guard and put up a good defensive game. The whole game was played under the intercollegiate rules.
The game between the Aeroplanes, men who are over six feet, and the Submarines, those under five feet four inches developed into a big farce. Soon after play was started the Submarines got busy and ran in an extra supply which they had concealed somewhere beneath the surface. The final score was 8 to 5 in favor of the Submarines. A large crowd was out to witness the two games.
STATE BREAKS EVEN IN VANDERBILT GAMES
In the final contest Kentucky completely outplayed her opponents from the South. While the score was close, yet the Wildcats maintained a lead all the way and at no time did Vandy threaten to catch up. The State lineup was somewhat shifted in this game because of the illness of Captain Morgan, who was unable to play. Sam Tuttle was shifted to forward while Gumbert was put in at guard, and the Commodores could do nothing with this combination. Tuttle again proved his versatility as an all-around athlete by going in at a position he had never played before and scoring more points than any other man on the floor. Sam got them from all angles. Zerfoss also played the best game of the season in this contest. The guarding of Scott and Gumbert was first class while big Server had Woodard on the defense all the time. Vanderbilt made numerous changes in her lineup in this game in her efforts to stop the Colonels, but all in vain.
For Vanderbilt, Davidson was easily the star of the team. Cody, the big football tackle, played well at guard. Sikes was a dangerous man at all times.
All the men on the State team played well. Tuttle was the better in the series, yet his may chances came because of the excellent work of his team mates. Morgan played well in the first game until he and big Cody met in a close scrimmage. The guarding of Scott and Gumbert was all that could have been expected. Both men played the floor unusually well. Server and Zerfoss were always in the game fighting hard all the time.
