Tigers Easy for Wildcat Quintet
Georgetown on Defensive Throughout Game and State Wins 25 to 14
The University of Kentucky's annual examination in basketball science for the Georgetown College quintet, alias "The Tigers," was conducted last night in the University gym by Professor Buchheit and his Wildcats, and the suburban team was found lacking, State winning 25 to 14. The Wildcats may have found the first semester exams difficult, but if the Tigers had been chemistry tests, the Wildcats would have earned hundred per cent markings.
The visitors were on the defensive the greater part of the game and centered their attack on Everett, the University pivot man, but the latter responded gamely and kept his numerous guards on the march every minute he was on the floor.
The second team was sent in against the Tiger basketeers near the close of the contest and performed very commendably.
The aggressiveness of Haydon, the splendid defensive work of Smith and Burnham, and the general floorwork of Blakey and Everett featured the game, with Funk, of the visitors, a strong contender for Tiger honors.
Jim Park, Transylvania coach, was chief engineer of the referee's whistle.
Game Writeup - Kentucky Kernel (February 6, 1920)
Kentucky 25, Georgetown 14
The third game of the Kentucky schedule resulted in a defeat for the neighboring Tigers from Georgetown, who contested for state honors on the University floor Saturday night, January 31, the score being 25 to 14.
The Tigers kept the Wildcats guessing until near the end of the game as to whether the game was "cinched" or not. The visitors were on the aggressive throughout the game, and their guards were a continuous hindrance to the Kentucky forwards.
In the beginning of the second half Georgetown came into the game with a new vim, but the superiority of the Kentucky quintette soon overshadowed them again and their defensive tactics were resumed.
During the last minute of play Coach Buchheit made his first substitutions of the season. The entire second team was sent in, and during their limited time got together well, and played the same brand of steady basketball as the first team.
The aggressiveness of Hayden, the excellent defensive work of Burnham, and the general floorwork of Blakey, Smith and Everett featured the game for Kentucky; with Funk, of the Tigers, as chief contender for Black and Gold honors.
Game Writeup - [by John R. Marsh] Lexington Leader
WILDCATS DEFEAT TIGERS 25-14
University of Kentucky proved that it has a right to prominent consideration for the State basketball championship by a decisive defeat of the Georgetown College five in the university gymnasium Saturday night. The score was 25 to 14. Altho well trained in team work, the Georgetown boys were never dangerous contenders. The score at the end of the first half was 15 to 8 and Kentucky kept a similar lead thruout the contest. Hayden led in scoring with six field goals for a total of 12 points, and Blakey, the old-timer was an important factor in his team's victory. Funk, of Georgetown, accounted for six of his team's points, all from free throws after fouls. Lehnhard, of this team, was injured slightly near the end of the game and his place was taken by J. Porter. Coach Buchheit put in a number of Kentucky subs near the close. J. Park, of Kentucky, refereed.
Between the halves "Battling Bud" Slomer and "Young Joe" Dodge, University middleweights, put on three fast rounds in an exhibition match. Slomer demonstrated a fondness for punishment and Dodge landed larger number of blows.
