Game Writeup - by Tom Underwood, Lexington Herald
Insult Added to Injury by Wildcat Five
Kentucky Bench Men Play Rings Around Revised Lineup of Tennessee Volunteers
Substitutes, long minus glory, came into their own last night. The basketball scrap between the Wildcats and the University of Tennessee, fought out at the University of Kentucky gymnasium, furnished a chance for the satellites who have been adorning the benches to adorn the hardwood.
The Wildcats hopping out to turn loose a collection of team work which baffled the Volunteers took a lead which counted much in a 40 to 12 victory. It was an easy road for Daddy Boles' bunch after the first ten minutes.
Every point for Tennessee, with the exception of three goals from fouls thrown by Center Callahan, was made by a man sent in by a substitute. Bell, who started the game Thursday; Landers and Bradford copped the honors after relieving regulars.
The game heaped insult upon the injury of Thursday night, when Tennessee was beaten by the Wildcats, 33 to 26.
Fast team play, in which Shanklin, Thomas and Bastin did the feature work, let Pat Campbell, who hung out beneath goal, take it easy and drop five in the pocket without difficulty. Shanklin, who threw three goals, one after a long dribble down field, and Thomas, with the same number of field points, also starred.
Big Ben Marsh, going in for Thomas at guard, looked like Gulliver among the Lilliputians, and stalked up and down the field with ease, throwing three field goals and a considerable number of men during the last part of the game. Zerfoss, also going in as a 'sub' flashed up the teamwork which even in the first part of the game had been too much for Tennessee.
Tennessee tonight plays Transylvania's Crimsons at 8 o'clock at the Transy gymnasium, finishing up a three day invasion of the basketball floors of Lexington.
