VOLS WIN FINAL HOME GAME FROM KENTUCKY
The Kentucky State university five were completely outclassed Saturday night, by the Vols quintet and lost by the one sided score of 30 to 10 at the Y.M.C.A. At no stage of the game were the Wildcats ever dangerous and their playing did not come up to the contest on Friday night when they held the U.T. squad down to within two points. The defensive work of Jacobs and Wolfe was a decided factor in the victory for they were all over he floor and kept the Wildcat forwards from getting near the baskets.
Lum Reeder and Garrett played a great game for the Vols and on several occasions Lum scored from the center of the floor while Garrett made several pretty shots under difficulties. Schraeder, the big guard of the visitors, was unable to play owing to an injury to his knee sustained in the game the night before and his great playing was sadly missed.
The greatest crowd of the season was out to whoop things up, every available space in the gallery and on the floor was filled to capacity with a mass of howling cheering rooters.
Tonight the U.T. squad will travel over to Maryville where they will play their final game of the season with the Highlanders.
