Wildcats Lose to Miami five
Playing of Moore for Ohio Team Feature Final Contest in University Gymnasium
FLOOR WORK IS FAST
In a game featured by long shots and the brilliant playing of Moore, center for Miami, the University of Kentucky basketball five lost to the visiting Miami team last night in the University of Kentucky gymnasium by a score of 38 to 14.
Shortly after the game started, Miami got a lead of several points and held it throughout the first half, that period ending with the score, 20 to 1 in favor of the visitors.
In the second half the University of Kentucky five failed to score a single point, while Miami men threw eight field goals and two fouls.
The floor work and goal shooting of Moore, at center for Miami, was easily the feature of the contest. Up to Friday nights game with Cincinnati, Moore had been a first substitute. He was started with the regulars in the game last night, at center, and his work seemed the inspiration of the visiting five. During the first half he made the first four points of the game, giving Miami her lead, and following also in the first half with two more field goals. In the final period he threw five field goals, most of them long shots.
Ten fouls were called during the contest by Referee Hansen, of Transylvania College. Lavin threw two out of his five, while Brate also got two out of five possible goals.
The game, although exceptionally fast and hard fought, was not particularly rough. Several of the men received hard falls but outside of a few minor cuts and one bad fall none of the players were hurt.
Everett, center, and Lavin and Dishman, forwards, made all of the Wildcats points.
