Cenre Wallops Wildcat Quintet
Kentucky Loses, 28 to 24, after Hard Battle
DANVILLE, Ky., Feb. 16 -- Centre College succeeded in administering a walloping to the University of Kentucky's Wildcats for the first time in seven years here tonight. The score was 28 to 24. The game was hard fought and rough playing featured. The mix-up looked like anybody's game unil the last few minutes.
The Wildcats took an 8 to 3 lead in the first five minutes. Then the tables were turned and Centre forged ahead making the score look 17 to 13 in her favor at the end of the first half.
Kentucky kept fighting but couldn't regale here losses in the first half. It looked like she would come up from behind but the game stopped too quickly.
Shrader and Ireland starred for the Wildcats, giving an excellent exhibition of floor work and basket shooting. Montgomery and Diddle did the best work for Centre.
The victory for Centre means that the fighting Danvillites have a good start toward the floor-championship of the state.
